1ST TRAILER FOR "AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY" WITH MERYL STREEP, EWAN MCGREGOR, JULIA ROBERTS, BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH! BENJAMIN WALKER & CHRIS HEMSWORTH IN "THE HEART OF THE SEA"! KARL URBAN'S "ALMOST HUMAN" SHOW GREENLIT!

  BENJAMIN WALKER
 JOINS CHRIS HEMSWORTH IN 'IN THE HEART OF THE SEA' EPIC MOVIE
Sometime ago HOLLYWOOD SPY has announced that Ron Howard is preparing to direct sea epic IN THE HEART OF THE SEA a 19th century set drama in which Chris Hemsworth will star as the first mate on board the Essex, a doomed ship whose encounter with an angry sperm whale was the inspiration for famous novel Moby Dick. The ship went down in the middle of the South Pacific after being rammed by the whale, and its crew drifted for more than 90 days, ultimately forced to turn to drastic measures in order to survive. According to fresh rumours from "Deadline" Benjamin Walker from ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER might play George Pollard, the privileged son of a whaling family, and the captain of the Essex who gets downgraded after the accident!


  ALL THE ORDERED NEW SHOWS!
ALMOST HUMAN, REIGN, SLEEPY HOLLOW, TOMORROW PEOPLE!  
In sad TV news - NBC has passed on sf western series THE SIXTH GUN which means it won't be made into a series, while Fox has decided not to greenlit Emma Roberts' DELIRIUM sf show but they did order fantasy show SLEEPY HOLLOW and Karl Urban's sf show ALMOST HUMAN from J.J. Abrams! TNT has forwarded Sean Bean's LEGENDS and Michael Bay's THE LAST SHIP into series! Over at CW space opera SELECTION has been passed over for the second time, but other of their sf pilots OXYGEN (now titled STAR CROSSED) and THE 100 along with TOMORROW PEOPLE will get whole seasons along with historical saga REIGN on the life of Mary Queen of Scots! The sad news is that ABC has decided not to make GOTHICA into series. Starring Tom Ellis as Dr Frankenstein with Dorian Grey and Grace van Helsing in the gallery too, the doomed project was to weave fantasy with present times.

  AUGUST OSAGE COUNTRY CLIP
 MERYL STREEP, EWAN MCGREGOR, JULIA ROBERTS
And here's an all star cast for you in the first trailer for family drama AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTRY which shall start its big screen life this November starring Meryl Streep, Ewan McGregor, Julia Roberts, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Sam Shepard, Juliet Lewis, Chris Cooper and Dermot Mulroney. The story of the film offers a  look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Meryl is the pill-popping  mother, Julia has Ewan for a cheating husband who had a fling with a student at his college.

  1. August: Osage County has a fabulous cast. Too bad the clip is too reminiscent of my own family. Has me scared to watch it now. :P

  4. I bet Captain George Pollard is the first to be eaten. "In a white wine sauce with truffles and shallots" as that old Monty Python lifeboat sketch said.

  6. Ewan looks very different in this film. The beard really changes his face. The film looks good in an introspective real life way. Great cast and certainly worth the watch.

    1. I do like him with a beard, looks more stylish and refined, his look in JACK THE GIANT SLAYER was magnificent :) And I love when they show him geeky too like in my fave film SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN!

    2. I haven't seen that one yet. I finally got 'round to watching Brave. 'Twas Mothers Day in the US and the Spawn bought it so we could watch it together. I did tell her that bad things happen when one doesn't love ones Mommy.

    3. oooh, I loved BRAVE so much, so many delightful characters and the amazingly colourful images and you know how much I love Scottish accent ;) Merida's three little triplet brothers were my absolute fave!

  7. So sad to see sf get passed over. At least Sleepy Hollow is going ahead. Woot.

    1. Yep, it was probably done poorly in the pilot, and it is a shock since the news were saying it was a very strong contender for a season order.
      I'm happy that REIGN and ALMOST HUMAN got picked up at least :)

  8. So they're making like a Moby Dick prequel kind of?

  9. Wow! August: Osage County seems like a good movie but a bit sad too.

    1. I wonder if it ends with a happy or crappy end (crappy would be Ewan returning to Julia LOL)

  12. That's too bad The Sixth Gun didn't get picked up. It sounded so promising.

  13. I'm looking forward to J.J. Abrams' new series. I'll probably stop watching Revolution as I just am not having fun with it.

    You got any news on if/when Guillermo del Toro is getting that vampire series off the ground? I read about it on io9 and it's supposed to be really gory.

    1. they say ALMOSTHUMAN will be very expensive, so the look should be great too. Very futuristic.

      I tend not to do Guillermo here, only when his movies are not so gory like in PACIFIC RIM.

    2. But I will have first pics of Jonathan Rhys Meyers as DRACULA in new NBC show tomorrow.

  14. You should have gone with Chris Hemsworth's picture. Ben is not nearly as hot. ;P

    Osage County looks all right. Not really my cup of tea, but all right.

    1. haven't seen STAR TREK yet, hope it is good, although I don't like the focus being on the villain.

    2. I think it was good...coming from me who has no expectation at all.

      I have no objection at all with movies focusing on the villain.
