'TRANSCENDENCE' TRAILER WITH JOHNNY DEPP, PAUL BETTANY, CILLIAN MURPHY, MORGAN FREEMAN! REECE RITCHIE IS PHARAOH IN 'HIEROGLYPHS' ANCIENT EGYPT SHOW! 'FINDING DORY', 'HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3' & 'ICE AGE 5' TO BATTLE IN SUMMER 2016!

REECE RITCHIE IS PHARAOH
IN 'HIEROGLYPHS' ANCIENT EGYPT FOX SHOW
Earlier this year I announced that Fox is preparing Ancient Egypt epic TV series HIEROGLYPHS and now we have the first casting choice. 'Deadline' reports that Reece Ritchie (10,000 BC, HERCULES, LOVELY BONES, PRINCE OF PERSIA) will play the Pharaoh in the 13 episode historical adventure set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality intertwined. It follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharaoh, navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers. Reece Ritchie’s Shai is the young, handsome Pharaoh who rules with an iron fist and fully trusts no one. He is obsessed with maintaining power over his kingdom, which he’ll do by any means necessary. Peter Chernin (TERRA NOVA) is producing!

2016 SUMMER BATTLE OF ANIMATED SEQUELS
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3 VS FINDING DORY VS ICE AGE 5
Speaking of ancient Egypt, ICE AGE 5 has just been given the release spot in July 2016 which previously belonged to another of Fox Animation animated films ANUBIS. The same summer, June 2016 will also see the battle of other two animated sequels Pixar's FINDING DORY and Dreamworks' HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3!
'ANUBIS' ANIMATED MOVIE
ANUBIS, which has now been pushed to 2018, follows Dr. George Henry, who finds himself condemned to the Egyptian Underworld after succumbing to an ancient Mummy curse. The doctor's son Henry sets off on an adventure to free his father, and must battle various monsters of all shapes and sizes as he plunges through the depths of this fantastical Underworld.

1ST 'TRANSCENDENCE' TRAILER
 JOHNNY DEPP, PAUL BETTANY, CILLIAN MURPHY, MORGAN FREEMAN, KATE MARA
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed - to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can... but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him. Coming to cinemas next April the film also stars Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy and Kate Mara.

    1. Yep, I've heard that the film reminds others on many different movies, I guess it's not an overly original plot.
      Happy Holidays too, Vanessa :)

  4. Geez, you had to bring up Terra Nova, didn't you? Flaws and all, it was a weekly helping of dinosaurs! That is one show I really miss.

    1. I wish there were actually some dinosaurs in TERRA NOVA, Bob, the show was mostly a crime one set in a sf genre. It had lovely cast, though!

    1. Each following one was worse, but I still love them all because they had a very positive vibe and delightful characters

    2. I can see that. I still want to re-watch Elf this week. Makes me laugh.

    3. I don't like the actor in that one

    4. Is he too much for you? Too silly? Not funny?

      I've seen him in Step Brothers, Elf and Stranger than Fiction. Enjoyed those movies a great deal.

    5. I generally cannot stand most of American movie comedians, only some of the TV ones. This one never made me laugh. I think I only love Robin Williams, but he is old generation

    6. Wow, nearly the whole lot of them. Ouch.

      I do enjoy a good stand-up gig (any nationality, I like a range), but haven't seen a good one of those in long awhile.

    7. I prefer TV ones, such as Tim Allen, Fran Drescher etc

    8. I'm still devastated that they cancelled HAPPILY DIVORCED and before that LIVING WITH FRAN. Both were amazing sitcoms.

  12. Transcendence looks fabulous! And I'm not even saying that because Johnny Depp is the sexiest man alive ;)

    I do wish they would cool it with the ice age films though!
