BEN KINGSLEY LEADS THE CAST IN KING 'TUT' ANCIENT EGYPT TV SERIES! FIRST 'TESTAMENT OF YOUTH' WW1 DRAMA PICTURES WITH ALICIA VIKANDER, COLIN MORGAN, KIT HARINGTON!

BEN KINGSLEY IN
'TUT' ANCIENT EGYPT TV SERIES
We're remaining in epic waters, people, with the news coming from Spike TV's KING TUT epic series which is, after the tragic cancellation of HIEROGLYPH at Fox, now the only Ancient Egypt set show to look forward to! According to 'Deadline' Ben Kingsley will lead the cast playing Ay, the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamun, who wields tremendous power and influence as the top advisor to the young Egyptian ruler! The six hour mini series revolves around Tutankhamun, aka King TUT (who reigned c. 1333 to 1323 BC), the youngest Pharaoh to rule Ancient Egypt, whose famous golden sarcophagus has become one of the symbols of the ancient civilization. This will be the biggest and the most ambitious project in Spike TV's history! 

WW1 'TESTAMENT OF YOUTH'
FIRST IMAGES WITH ALICIA VIKANDER, COLIN MORGAN AND KIT HARINGTON
Check out what I have for you: the first pictures from epic World War One drama TESTAMENT OF YOUTH giving us the first look of leading stars Alicia Vikander, Colin Morgan and Kit Harington  in their period costumes! This BBC Films production follows Vera Brittain (Alicia Vikander), irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, who overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she falls in love with her brother’s close friend Roland Leighton (Kit Harington) as they go to university to pursue their literary dreams. But the First World War is looming and as the boys leave for the front Vera realises she cannot sit idly by as her peers fight for their country, so volunteers as a nurse. She works tirelessly, experiencing all the grief of war, as one by one her  closest friends are all killed and the pillars of her world shattered. But, an indefatigable spirit, Vera endures, rediscovers love and returns to Oxford, irrevocably changed, yet determined to create a world in which such a war can never take place again. Based on the book by Vera Brittain herself, the movie will also star Dominic West, Emily Watson, Hayley Atwell and Miranda Richardson.

  3. Looking forward to "Testament of Youth." I enjoyed the original series made from the book which aired probably 30-ish years ago.

  5. I will watch Testament of Youth, though I have a feeling it will make me cry. Incidentally, my grandmother was a WWI nurse who fell in love with one of her patients and married after the war. :)

  13. So looking forward to Tut. Love Kinglsey and the possibilities for gorgeous sets and costumes is quite high.

    Testament of Youth has tremendous promise as it will show how bad war is and how the human spirit can triumph in the face of such horrors.
