GERARD BUTLER, NIKOLAJ COSTER WALDAU, GEOFFREY RUSH TO PLAY ANCIENT 'GODS OF EGYPT' IN NEW EPIC MOVIE! AARON PAUL'S WILD RIDE IN 'NEED FOR SPEED' TRAILER! HAILEE STEINFELD & DOUGLAS BOOTH IN 'ROMEO & JULIET' BALCONY SCENE CLIP

GERARD BUTLER IS SET IN EPIC MOVIE 'GODS OF EGYPT'
NIKOLAJ COSTER WALDAU & GEOFFREY RUSH HORUS & OSIRIS
Oh, my, do I have a treat for you today! It seems that while Ridley Scott is preparing his EXODUS epic (with Christian Bale as Moses, Aaron Paul as Joshua, Joel Edgerton as Ramses, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro as pharaoh's parents) we shall get another humongous epic set in ancient Egypt! Summit Entertainment is preparing GODS OF EGYPT and listen to this - with Gerard Butler in the lead role!!! The story will follow Set (Gerard Butler), the God of the desert, storms and foreigners, who kills his own brother Osiris. Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Osiris' son, teams up with a human thief and the Goddess of Love, Hathor, to avenge his father's death. Geoffrey Rush will play Ra, the God of the Sun who is father to both Set and Osiris, and also Set's ultimate target. Alex Proyas will helm this extravagant motion picture!
This will be Gerard's fourth time to play a ruler - he played ATTILA king of the Huns, Viking king in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and Leonidas, king of the Spartans.

ROMEO & JULIET BALCONY CLIP
HAILEE STEINFELD, DOUGLAS BOOTH, DAMIAN LEWIS
Don't forget that October 11th is the date when the new movie adaptation of William Shakespeare's ROMEO AND JULIET will start playing in both US and UK theatres. Today you can check out a new clip showing the legendary balcony scene between the starcrossed lovers. Written by DOWNTON ABBEY's Julian Fellowes, the faithful adaptation has Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet, Douglas Booth as Romeo, Damien Lewis and Natascha McElhone as Lord and Lady Capulet, Ed Westwick as Tybalt, Stellan Skarsgard as prince of Verona, Paul Giamatti as the friar, Kodi Smith McPhee as Benvolio, Tom Wisdom as Paris and Christian Cooke as Mercutio. You can read more in HOLLYWOOD SPY's spotlight on the movie.

  'NEED FOR SPEED' TRAILER
 AARON PAUL & DOMINIC COOPER
Speaking of Aaron Paul, before he reveals us his abs in Ridley Scott's Egyptian epic, you will watch him in action movie NEED FOR SPEED. The big screen version of the famous computer game will open up in cinemas next March and today you can watch the first trailer. Also starring Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton and Rami Malek, the film revolves around a local street-racer who partners with a rich and arrogant business associate, only to find himself framed by his colleague and sent to prison. After he gets out, he joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to get revenge. But when the ex-partner learns of the scheme, he puts a massive bounty on the racer's head, forcing him to run a cross-country gauntlet of illegal racers in all manner of supercharged vehicles.

  1. Need for Speed, eh? Might as well call out the obvious and re-title it Furious Need for Fast Speed. :)

  4. Hey, where's Isis? It's very telling that the only Goddess they want in the Egyptian flick is Hathor, "the Goddess of Love."

    1. I'm waiting to see whom they will cast as Hathor.... hope some lady with talent.. God forbid if they cast that weak Lena Headey... since she already worked with Butler in 300 and with Nikolaj in SHAME OF THRONES.....

  9. Romeo is cute.
    Though do we need another adaptation? There are two good Romeo and Juliet movies already. Though a good way to share Shakespeare with a new generation.
