FEMALE 'EXPENDABELLES'
TO HAVE MERYL STREEP, CAMERON DIAZ, MILLA JOVOVICH
Well, we have already seen the revival of old forgotten action stars in EXPENDABLES franchise which has had Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Van Dame, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Jackie Chan, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and others in the cast, and now producer Avi Lerner is moving on with the same thing but with female action heroines! Titled EXPENDABELLES, the film would see female action stars from the previous decades coming back from retirement for one last mission. According to first rumours, Lerner is negotiating with Meryl Streep, Milla Jovovich and Cameron Diaz to join this cast. While EXPENDABLES III should hit cinemas next August, EXPENDABELLES would start shooting some time early next year in Bulgaria. Other action ladies who could join the fun might include Linda Hamilton, Gina Davis, Michelle Yeoh, Sigourney Weaver!

'THE IMMIGRANT' TRAILER 
 MARION COTILLARD,  JOAQUIN PHOENIX, JEREMY RENNER
Coming to theatres next year in USA and this November in Europe is historical drama THE IMMIGRANT and today you can check out the first trailer!  It is 1920, in search of a new start and the American dream, Ewa Cybulski (Marion Cotillard) and her sister Magda (Angela Sarafyan) sail to New York from their native Poland. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda is ill, and the two women are separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan while her sister is quarantined. Alone, with nowhere to turn and desperate to reunite with Magda, she quickly falls prey to Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. And then one day, Ewa encounters Bruno's cousin, the debonair magician Orlando (Jeremy Renner). He sweeps Ewa off her feet and quickly becomes her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.

    1. they've released the trailer for the second season some time ago, hope you've seen it, I haven't posted it because I decided not to cover VIKINGS, GAME OF THRONES any more....
      I liked the trailer for THE IMMIGRANTS too, not all of the cast, but the trailer yes :)

  5. EXPENDABELLES sounds interesting, but with the exception of Milla Jovovich, I wouldn't really consider them 'classic' action heroines. Now, get Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver involved, and round out the cast with the likes of Angelina Jolie and maybe Pam Grier, and you just might have a workable concept.

    1. I cannot stand Milla, either, she is from my country, but she really is a horrid actress.

    1. it's a horrid show, but he is rather handsome :)

    2. Well, darn! If the show sucks, it doesn't matter how much pretty is in it. I need a good storyline more than eye candy to hold my attention!

      Delete
    3. it's violent show which glorifies Vikings who went around Europe butchering people. This is why I stopped watching it - they portray Vikings as brave heroes while they kill, pillage and rape on foreign shores.

  11. The Immigrants sounds like something I'd like - and I do like Marion.

  12. I've gotta love the "Expendabelles" flick for its title alone.

    "The Immigrants" sounds good, if a little heartbreaking, but... guess what? My hubby and I actually went to the movies the other day! First time in fifteen or twenty years, and once we recovered from sticker shock over the ticket prices, we enjoyed ourselves. We saw "Gravity"... in 3-D. I guess we're good now until about 2033 or so...

  14. A Warcraft movie??? Interesting. I was hoping, if they were going to do one, that it would be animated. I love their promotional cinematics.
