MINDBLOWING TRAILERS FOR ASIAN EPIC "THE GUILLOTINES" & VIKING ACTION "HAMMER OF THE GODS" WITH ELLIOT COWAN & CLIVE STANDEN! NEW VIKING EPIC "SIGURD"

  VIKING EPIC MOVIE ON
SIGURD DRAGON SLAYER
We shall have an epic day today at HOLLYWOOD SPY :) First some Viking news: "Deadline" reports that we shall get a new international co-production on the Norse hero SIGURD. The large scaled fantasy epic from producer Basil Iwanyk (CLASH and WRATH OF THE TITANS, THE SEVENTH SON) will revolve around Sigurd's recruitment to slay the monstrous dragon Fafnir to ward off a generations-long curse. The hero is known from the 13th century Volsunga saga, from Wagner's famous opera and even from Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun by J.R.R. Tolkien. The new take on the story blends the traditional dragon-hunting plot with an original thread involving a fallen daughter of Odin (called Valkyrie) and her desire to retake a place in the heavens.The script is written by Nick Schoenfeld who just wrote ATTILA epic for Warner Bros.

  HAMMER OF THE GODS
 SECOND EPIC TRAILER
Continuing in the same tone, here's a new trailer for Viking adventure HAMMER OF THE GODS! Hitting cinemas July 5th the film is set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, and brings a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar's epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be - the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne. The cast also includes two gents known to us from epic shows - always brilliant Elliot Cowan from DA VINCI'S DEMONS and Clive Standen from VIKINGS. Big thanks to both of them for tweeting about HOLLYWOOD SPY!

  THE GUILLOTINES
 ASIAN EPIC TRAILER
Your second epic trailer for today is promoting new Asian adventure THE GUILLOTINES which is scheduled to start its cinematic live this June. With incredibly intricate costumes and weapons used in the fight scenes, this action epic follows an elite crime-fighting unit in the court of the Chinese emperor which relies on flying swords to defeat their enemies! During the Manchurian ruled Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng established a secret assassination squad known as the Guillotines to eliminate all who opposed him. Once heavily favoured by the Emperor, the Guillotines are deemed expendable once Emperor Qian Long ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. To consolidate his power under a new regime, the Emperor continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression.

  3. Geesh, Hammer of the Gods is kind of intense, even for me. But Clive Standen is kind of cornering the market on hunky Vikings, isn't he? :)

  4. I'd like to see a medieval fantasy with a huge budget, the most beautiful actors money could buy, and then have a nice gay sex scene in it with full frontal nudity. I'd pay to see that.

    2. so very true, sir Michael, my people have a saying - when it's ball make it a ball not a common party.

  5. This is a violent and bloody bunch of films today darling. I would give The Guillotine a go for the sets and the costuming.

  11. "Hammer of the Gods" looks way too gory for my taste. I enjoyed "Vikings" because it wasn't an explicit gore-fest even if it depicted violence. But I won't bother seeing that movie.

    1. yep, similarly to last year's VALHALA RISING which was also way too violent for me to watch.
