NEW 'MAD MAX FURY ROAD' PICS WITH CHARLIZE THERON, TOM HARDY, NICHOLAS HOULT! 'THE GREAT FIRE' HISTORICAL SERIES TEASER WITH ANDREW BUCHAN, CHARLES DANCE, ROSE LESLIE! ALEX RUSSELL JOINS 'GALYNTINE' POST APOCALYPTIC SHOW

MAD MAX FURY ROAD
UNRECOGNISABLE CHARLIZE THERON IN THE FIRST IMAGES
Entertainment Weekly has published new images from next February's epic action MAD MAX: FURY ROAD showing the first look of Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa and Tom Hardy as Mad Max, beside Nicholas Hoult under heavy make-up! The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And… Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

  ALEX RUSSELL IN GALYNTINE
POSTAPOCALYPTIC TV SERIES
In today's television news, 'Deadline' reports that AMC's upcoming new postapocalyptic show GALYNTINE has added yet another cast member. Alex Russell will star in the fantasy action adventure with hints of sci-fi set in a postapocalyptic future without technology where a band of survivors is forced to adapt to isolation and the challenges of their new world. With Catherine Dent already in the cast, Russell will play a man who is set to be a future leader of the colony, but a twist of fate (and a deeply wounding betrayal) set him on a different, more dangerous path.

FIRST 'THE GREAT FIRE' TEASER
ANDREW BUCHAN, CHARLES DANCE IN 17TH CENTURY LONDON
After a very long wait British ITV has finally released a teaser for their upcoming new historical series THE GREAT FIRE which will air this Autumn. Starring Andrew Buchan, Rose Leslie, Charles Dance, Daniel Mays, Jack Huston and Oliver Jackson Cohen, THE GREAT FIRE tells the story of exhausted baker Thomas Farriner who forgets to close his ovens, sparking a terrible blaze which threatens to destroy 17th century London. Family members are lost amongst the fleeing crowds whilst desperate refugees fight, loot and riot to survive. Amid the horror, the personal stories of those caught in the disaster stand out against the flames; Frantic with worry, Sarah, a penniless widow searches for her missing son; Famous diarist Samuel Pepys’ burning ambition to become the King’s confidant threatens his marriage more than the blaze outside his door; A pleasure-seeking King struggles to tame his wild side and become the leader his people need. At the heart of the story is the tragic baker, distracted by an agonising dilemma, who makes a simple mistake with devastating consequences. Below is the teaser, and you can watch a longer trailer here.

  1. Everything that was old is new again, just more dramatic and gruesome. THE GREAT FIRE looks interesting.

    1. THE GREAT FIRE should be really interesting. It will be intriguing to see how people from the previous centuries were unprepared for disasters just like we are still now

  2. I am a huge fan of the original Mad Max movies. Still, I'm looking forward to this updated version. Loving the photos. :)

    1. I've recently watched the first one, the original one, and it just made me so tense with the amount of brutal violence. But I did like the second and the third one, with Tina Turner and that desert fort.

  3. Charlize even looks good bald. We do love her. I haven't seen any of the Mad Max movies so I don't know about them.

    The Great Fire looks good though. And since it's ITV, it won't be too long before my Russian friends have it up so I can see it.

    I hurt myself in the garden a couple of times, so I've not been around. Mainly just commented on you and Fran a few times this month as you two are my favourite boys. A bit depressed after I dislocated my shoulder as I can't work in the yard, play drums or paint. It's healing well though and I hope to come back next month.

    Take care darling.

    1. I've heard you got hurt and was worried about you, dear! Will you be good as old when it heals?
      Miss you, dahlink!

    2. Good thing we know our Annzie is as strong as any Irish and can survive everything!

    3. Ya, I'll be fine. There's a small tear in the rotator cuff, but it will heal on its own. The poison has dried up now!

    4. how did it happen, dear? Do you have anybody there to take care of you?

  4. Uh-oh, more remakes. I liked the original Mad Max flicks, so maybe the new ones will be good, too. Seems like when they do remakes, they have a tendency to make the violence more graphic and "real" than it was in the originals. I think I'd rather they left some of that stuff to my imagination.

    The Great Fire sounds good, though.

    1. Today's obssession with extreme violence and making it something entertaining is beyond disgusting and revolting and I'm deeply annoyed by that

      Delete
    2. I won't watch movies that have extreme violence. They make me sick.

      Delete
    3. me too, especially when the violence is used for entertainment

    4. Yeah, there's no reason to waste time with that, when I can watch BAKE OFF!

    5. We had an old season of TOP CHEF at one of our channels aired recently in which Harold won... I liked him a lot... and also a season of MASTERCHEF in which Jennifer won... she was so amazing and lovely

  5. I never even knew what the original Mad Max was about--just that it involved Mel Gibson and I think it launched his American career, didn't it?

    1. well, some ruthless band of crazy wackoes kills and rapes his wife and kid in the middle of nowhere which sets him of to become a crazed vigilante who goes around the desert killing all of them and getting revenge.... My stomach couldn't digest the first movie, the second two were more bearable

  6. Love Tom Hardy, it is on my to see list.

  7. Looking forward to Max and Charlize is looking damn good!

  8. Loved the first Mad Max with Mel Gibson. Ordinarily I'm not interested in sequels that don't star the original cast. Saying that, I suspect this one will be good. I hope.

  11. I disagree with Adam. I think plenty of women look good bald. Demi Moore looked fabulous in GI Jane.
