FIRST PICTURES FROM "HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2"! CILLIAN MURPHY JOINS CHRIS HEMSWORTH & BENJAMIN WALKER IN "IN THE HEART OF THE SEA"! THRANDUIL, LEGOLAS, TAURIEL ON NEW "EMPIRE" ELVEN COVER


CILLIAN MURPHY JOINS
IN THE HEART OF THE SEA
In casting news today, people, the latest one to join the hunky cast of new epic adventure IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is Irish star Cillian Murphy. Ron Howard directed movie adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick book already has Chris Hemsworth and Benjamin Walker! The book follows famous ship Essex which served as an inspiration for Herman Melville's MOBY DICK. "Deadline" reports that Murphy will play Matthew Joy, second mate on the whale ship Essex. Citing reports of cannibals in the Society Islands, Joy and first mate Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) convince first time Captain Pollard (Benjamin Walker) to sail to South America after an enraged sperm whale rams and sinks the Essex, leaving 21 crew members adrift in small boats, 3,000 miles from land.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2
 FIRST PICS SHOW A GROWN UP HICCUP
One of the very special cinematic treats today are the lovely first pictures showing our favourite heroes Hiccup and Astrid in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2! As you remember the end of the beloved animated blockbuster which earned hundreds of millions of dollars a few years ago had seen Hiccup a hero left without his leg which made him similar to his  friend dragon Toothless. New pictures show Hiccup as a grown up teenager and another new thing are dragon races which have become popular on his island in the meantime. In the sequel,  Hiccup and Toothless, who spend their time going on journeys and adventures, will discover a cave that is home to hundredsof wild new dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider. They will have to do everything to protect the peace in their land. The film is supposed to hit theatres June next year with Gerard Butler, Jay Baruchel, America Ferera, Craig Ferguson lending their voices to our heroes again!

  1. In the Heart of the Sea sounds terrifying!! I don't need zombies to scare me, just put me in a little boat in the ocean with huge animals trying to sink me and I'm gonna have a mental breakdown. :P

    And I still haven't seen How to Train Your Dragon. No, I don't know what's wrong with me...

  3. "In the Heart of the Sea" should lend itself to some great special effects. Let's hope it goes deeper than that, though.

  17. Looking forward to both movies.

    Cillian kinda scares me. He has such a sharp face. Probably why he's always a villain.

    1. He almost never played villains. Maybe in two movies (one of them that horrid dark crap) but those were American ones, in all of his best ones (The European ones) he played good guys - THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY, BREAKFAST ON PLUTO etc.

  18. I'm not as excited about the Hobbit as you'd think. The book however is AWESOME.

    1. I'm excited because of all the Elves in it :)
      Cheer indeed!

  19. I never heard about "Train your Dragon I" !!

    If I've understood, the Desolation of Smaug is a movie about the Elves ?
    strange...
    It seems that P.J. want to repair all the errors and "forgotten" parts he have done in LoTR : in the new trilogy, he prefer to add a lot of characters even if they don't exist in the Tolkien's script !!!!
    pathetic!

    (+: Dezz, my dear, what's about the "hobbites" or something like that? I didn't heard of them...)

    3. "Hobbitses" is what Gollum calls the Hobbits - "dirty little Hobbitses, we don't like them....." :)

      I adore all the Elves in the film and they're the reason I'm extremely excited about it, unlike the first film which I didn't really like.

  20. Love those Elves! I cannot wait for this movie.

    Cillian is just so ethereal looking. And I of course can't wait for this movie as I love Hemsworth...My favorite blond.
