'MR. NOBODY' TRAILER
 JARED LETO, TOBY REGBO, RHYS IFANS, DIANE KRUGER
Your trailer for this Saturday is a deeply original and unusual one: MR. NOBODY, starring Jared Leto, Toby Regbo, Rhys Ifans, Diane Kruger, it comes out in USA this November, although it was shot back in 2009 and has, since then, become a cult movie.  The film tells the life story of Nemo Nobody, a 118 year-old man who is the last mortal on Earth after the human race has achieved quasi-immortality. Nemo, memory fading, refers to his three main loves and to his parent's divorce and subsequent hardships endured at three main moments in his life; him at age nine, fifteen and thirty-four. Nemo tells the story including alternate life paths, often changing course with the flick of a decision at each of those ages.

  2. "The Thirteen" has an intriguing premise.

  3. The Thirteen has already been done. It's called the story of Ireland:)

    Paddington Bear should be cute and the cast is a good one. You're going to scream when I tell you this. The scuttlebutt is that they are going to make another Harry Plopper film. Now take a deep breath and try to calm down. If that doesn't work, then smash something:)

    1. :) yes, sadly Ireland had tough times throwing down the English oppressors :( The same as us against Turks, dear.

      They're not making another HARRY PLOPPER flick, dear, but something inspired by it, it will be about monsters mentioned in it and will be written by that Rowling woman :) I can survive it since it will have zero of those talentless brats Emma Whatshername and DAniel WhathisCliffe? :)

    2. The Spawn got it wrong then. Rowling is a hack and I've never been impressed by her. But she has somehow wiggled her way into the pantheon of great British writers.

      Since you mentioned the Turks darling, I get a lot of traffic from there and I'm not sure from whose blog they are coming. Do you get high volume from there?

      US is my number 1 in page views like everyone else, but Russia is my next largest. UK lags waaaaay behind Russia.

    3. yes, it's seriously crazy what kind of names today are considered great writers....

      Not really, dear, I'm mostly read in USA, UK, Oz, Germany and Canada and France. I do have visits from Turks but only for two or three posts I did on their movies and shows. Maybe they have wargamers or figurine painters in the Ottoman empire too :) Russia is usually 7 or 8 in my list of visitors.

    4. Yes, there are a lot of painters in Russia but they are some of the very, very best painters in the world. So I have no idea why they'd be interested in me.

  11. Oh, Mr Nobody is a Belgian film (my homecountry). I watched this a couple of years ago. There's a brilliant idea in it every other minute. Reminded me a bit of The Fountain.
