REESE WITHERSPOON JOINS KEANU REEVES IN SF "PASSANGERS"! SARAH GADON JOINS LUKE EVANS IN "DRACULA" EPIC! STEPHEN SOMMERS DIRECTED "ODD THOMAS" TRAILER WITH ANTON YELCHIN

  REESE WITHERSPOON
 JOINS KEANU REEVES IN PASSANGERS
 A week or two ago HOLLYWOOD SPY mentioned that Keanu Reeves will star in new science fiction romance PASSANGERS as Jim Preston, a mechanic travelling on a 120-year journey to a planet in another galaxy, whose cryogenic pod fails. He wakes up more than a century before the other passengers, and decides to wake up another passenger, the female journalist Aurora. While the two begin to fall in love, they also discover a major malfunction on the ship that may threaten their lives. And the new info is that Aurora will be played by Reese Witherspoon! Interesting choice, I'm surprised the two of them haven't played together before!

SARAH GADON & LUKE EVANS
 IN DRACULA EPIC
And another film we've mentioned recently - Universal's new take on DRACULA which will have brilliant Welsh star Luke Evans in the lead role - has new cast addition! According to "Variety" gorgeous Sarah Gadon (WORLD WITHOUT END, COSMOPOLIS, ANTIVIRAL) will take the lead female role! The story of the epic horror film will mix together the mythology surrounding the famous vampire with the elements of the true story of the historical Dracula - medieval prince Vlad the Impaler who fought the Turks who were invading Europe at that time and who served as the inspiration for Bram Stoker's famous character! The film is set for August next year!


ODD THOMAS TRAILER
 WITH ANTON YELCHIN
Earlier last weekend the first trailer for movie adaptation of ODD THOMAS bestselling novel from Dean R.Koontz was released. Directed by deeply brilliant Stephen Sommers (MUMMY, MUMMY RETURNS, VAN HELSING) and hitting cinemas later this year the movie revolves around Thomas, an exuberant short-order cook who possesses the gift to communicate with the dead. He must use his talent to prevent an evil force from entering our world through a gateway from hell. The cast of the $30 million movie is lead by STAR TREK star Anton Yelchin alongside Willem Dafoe, Niko Tortorella and  Addison Timlin.

  2. Dracula sounds good, Sarah Gordon looks very tasty indeed. Read a few of the 'Odd' series will be interested as to which tales will be told.

  3. My sister Leilon is a huge fan of Dean Koontz. She'll love this movie. I can't watch scary movies as they give me horrid dreams. I do like William Defoe and the humour in this is nice.

    1. I don't watch horrors, either, Annzie, but this seems more like a comedy to me :)
      Leilon is such divine name, and easy to pronounce unlike some other Irish names :P

  4. I love Reese. I bought all of her movies a month ago and I think she should've been my student um... I mean my neighbor. Did you say a SF romance?

    1. I hope she wasn't driving around your neighbourhood... I mean with all those recent scandals of hers and stuff......

    2. I could turn her into a chaste princess again. It's called chaste by association.

    3. I think you have a cunning plan there, sir Randy Mandy

  6. Creepy trailer. Dracula sounds creepy, too, but I'll probably check it out when it's released. :)

  7. I hope Witherspoon can handle this new role better than her recent run in with the law

  8. Oh, odd Thomas looks super good.
    I'm not sure about Reese--The Passengers doesn't seem like her usual type of film.

  9. Reese and Keanu will be a different but probably good pairing.

    The Dracula movie sounds like it will be pretty good, but then again I am partial to vampires...

  10. Hey, Dezzy,

    Reese and Keanu are definitely and interesting pairing....

    BEYOND sexy pic of Sara and Reese looks pretty smoking too! Love the black and whites... so much more dramatic.

    Hope you're doing well.... Leaving the sunshine state on Friday... back to the north I go... Hopefully they'll be blue skies and warm temps....

  11. So happy that Keanu is still active after all this year. If only he can act better ;) ... but I love him still.

    Passengers have cliche story...at least for now it sounds cliche.

  12. That is a great pic of Anton, normally he looks too little boyish for me. Reese and Keanu, an interesting couple to say the least. Far better someone like Reese who would be believable rather than a Blake Lively or an Amber Heard, who are far too young to be believable as romance partner for a nearly 50 year man. And yes, Dez, older men don't always prefer twenty somethings, only the ignorant ones do. ;)
