CATE BLANCHETT IS GUARDIAN OF DRAGONS IN 'HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON II' NEW PICTURES WITH JAY BARUCHEL, GERARD BUTLER, DJIMON HOUNSOU! FIRST ENGLISH 'GRAND PIANO' TRAILER WITH ELIJAH WOOD AND JOHN CUSACK

'HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2'
CATE BLANCHETT IS GUARDIAN OF THE DRAGONS
Definitely one of the most anticipated 2014 movies is HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON II the sequel to the adorable animated adventure which will fly into theatres next June. Today you can check out the first picture of Cate Blanchett's character Valka, a mysterious guardian of the dragons. Directed by Dean DeBlois ('How to Train Your Dragon', 'Lilo & Stitch'), this sequel follows Toothless and Hiccup (Jay Baruchel ) five years down the road, as Hiccup heads towards adulthood while trying to hold onto those last few precious moments of his childhood. He is faced with a lot of new responsibilities, and is being groomed to eventually take over for his dad (Gerard Butler). But before that can happen, he sets off on one last adventure to the Arctic, where he stumbles upon Valka. A tough warrior, this woman is seen as a vigilante who springs dragons from traps, hiding them from a vicious dragon hunter by the name of Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou) and his No. 2, Eret (Kit Harington).

DID YOU KNOW?

Cate Blanchett was offered the role at the Oscars' ceremony with Dean DeBlois approaching her right there at the red carpet. Her character can communicate with dragons in non verbal ways and is distrusting of humans. Unlike Hiccup's dragon Toothless who looks like a panther, Valka's dragon Cloudjumper looks more like an owl and has a second set of wings hidden under the main ones! 


GRAND PIANO TRAILER
 ELIJAH WOOD PLAYS FOR HIS LIFE
I've already shown you the Spanish version, but here is the first English trailer for GRAND PIANO thriller! Elijah Wood stars as Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, who has stopped performing in public because of his stage fright. Years after a catastrophic performance, he reappears in public for a long awaited concert in Chicago. In a packed theatre, in front of an expectant audience, Tom finds a message written on the score: "Play one wrong note and you die." In the sights of an anonymous sniper (John Cusack), Tom must get through the most difficult performance of his life and look for help without being detected.

    2. Did you get a chance to view the videos from my post? That to me, is the best baking show in the history of ever. They do alllllll kinds of fantastic bakes from breads, to upside down bakes, cookies, biscuits and crackers.

      Just a lovely show.

      I'm soon off to go couponing but I'd much rather stay home and bake. Tonight, I think, pizza and a movie. It's date night here at The Manor. Maybe some more pizzelles as well, since we're plum out.

      Cheers Dezzy. Have a groovy day.

    3. I do love me baking and cooking shows and will be sad when the one I'm watching now ends next week.
      OOh haven't eaten pizza in years.... although I love it so!

    4. Don't know... I've been eating extremely low calory food in recent years kinda like a little bunny... eating only boiled and steamed and raw veggies :) And only three or four times a month I maybe make pasta, or something breaded or some puff pastry....

    5. Ohhhh. Well, that's understandable if you're wanting to say more clean eating. But homemade pizza could be good with brown flours, no cheese and homemade sauce with lots of veg on top.

      We were going pizza tonight but changed it up to breakfast, with another eight strand plaited loaf. My gosh, baking bread ... I seriously could do it all ding dong day long.

    6. the problem with me is that I have a body like a walrus - everything I eat, even the smallest of quantities, goes immediately to fat, and this is why I have to eat like a poor kid from Africa. It's a sad diet, but what can I do?

  4. there be dragons again... okay and not that they cannot play these roles, i just don't think them to being that strong on their acting skills... one a hobbit, one a geek.

  8. My son has read all the How to Train Your books.
    We also have seen the first movie, and the TV cartoons, so I suspect that this will be on my list of movies I go to next year. I definitely will go look at your cakes! You had me at Eat!
