'SHANNARA' EPIC SERIES GREENLIGHTED BY MTV! ONE REPUBLIC'S 'ORDINARY HUMAN' VIDEO FROM 'THE GIVER' FANTASY MOVIE WITH MERYL STREEP, TAYLOR SWIFT, BRENTON THWAITES! 'WILD' TRAILER WITH REESE WITHERSPOON!

MTV GREENLIGHTS
SHANNARA EPIC TV SERIES
According to 'Deadline' one of MTV's most ambitious projects ever - the small screen adaptation of famous bestselling fantasy saga SHANNARA by Terry Brooks - is moving forward but with a new director! Instead of Jon Favreau, the ten episode epic fantasy series will be helmed by TEENAGE NINJA MUTANT TURTLES's Jonathan Liebesman! The books are set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization. The story centres on the Shannara family, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. The show will be based on the second book - THE ELFSTONES OF SHANNARA!

FIRST 'WILD' TRAILER
WITH REESE WITHERSPOON
In our trailer department today, we have the first trailer for Reese Witherspoon's WILD which arrives into cinemas December 5th. Based on Cheryl Strayed's bestseller, WILD follows Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) who, with the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.


ONE REPUBLIC'S VIDEO
FOR 'THE GIVER' FANTASY MOVIE
I have a musical treat for you to start your weekend in a nice tone: new teaser for fantasy movie THE GIVER featuring the song ORDINARY HUMAN by the best band of today's music One Republic and their composer and singer marvellous Ryan Tedder. Coming out this August and starring Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Swift and Jeff Bridges, THE GIVER is set in a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, in which a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the real world as a keeper of emotions.

    1. I'm just scared it being at MTV! Are those irresponsible freaks over there capable of doing epic fantasy?

  3. I still haven't read the Shannara books. Need to do that. And fun song for The Giver. Not sure if I'll see the movie though. The clips seem so different than my impression of the book.

    1. it does seem both inspirational and stupid of her to do what she did. Could be a really good movie

      Delete
    2. Inspirational in that people help her survive on the trails (or she wouldn't have made it).

      Delete
    3. Inspirational in the way that she tried to find a catharsis or enlightenment but stupid in the way that she risked her life for nothing special. She could've found that volunteering in an orphanage

  11. I read and re-read the Shannara many years ago and I think I still have the series at home somewhere. I'm having a hard time believing they will get it right though. Who knows, maybe miracles can happen.
