WARNER BROS. BUYS 'DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN' EPIC SAGA! 'NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM SECRET OF THE TOMB' TRAILER WITH BEN STILLER, ROBIN WILLIAMS! LILY JAMES, PAUL DANO FOR BBC'S 'WAR AND PEACE' SERIES

DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN TO
FLY INTO BATTLE AT WARNER BROS!
I've announced this a few years ago but now it's back on track: Warner Bros. has bought the rights on all the novels in the DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN fantasy saga by Anne McCaffrey which could replace THE HOBBIT franchise which ends this winter. The series of 22 epic fantasy novels, first published back in 1968, revolve around a group of elite warriors and their dragons, with whom they share telepathic bonds, who take to the skies trying to save their exotic home planet of Pern from a deadly airborne threat, a rain of spores that hails from the orbit of the Red Star.

BBC'S WAR AND PEACE CASTS
LILY JAMES AND PAUL DANO
Sometime ago I've announced that BBC is preparing new mini series on Tolstoy's WAR AND PEACE historical saga and the latest update is that Lily James and Paul Dano are in negotiations for the roles. Lily would play Natasha Rostova who falls in love with Pierre Bezukhov, to be played by Dano, an illegitimate son who rises in society but leads a tumultuous life as he seeks to overcome his emotions. To be aired next year in six episodes, the mini series will be written by Andrew Davies known for MR. SELFRIDGE. The novel is set in 1805 Russia following five aristocratic families set against the backdrop of the reign of Alexander I, the lingering effects of his grandmother Catherine The Great’s rule and the events surrounding Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812!
  TOTALLY DRACULA!
Another thing to enjoy today is Luke Evans at the cover of TOTAL FILM as Vlad Tepes from DRACULA UNTOLD

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 3
 SECRET OF THE TOMB TRAILER!
The main movie trailer for today is for the third part of Ben Stiller's comedy adventure NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB which includes Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt, Owen Wilson as Jedediah, Ricky Gervais as Dr. McPhee, Rebel Wilson as a London security guard and Dan Stevens as Sir Lancelot. Rami Malek and Ben Kingsley also star as Egyptian pharaohs.  Opening in cinemas this December, the movie will see Larry (Ben Stiller) in an adventure which spans the globe, uniting favourite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the   magic before it is gone forever. This comedy adventure franchise has earned more than one billion dollars around the world so far!

  1. That's quite the plum role for Paul Dano! And I really must get around to seeing the first 2 Night in the Museum movies. The 3rd one looks great!

    2. I'll have to give them a watch sometime. I just rewatched the newer Stepford Wives. It's not the best movie, but it was good for what I wanted to watch the other night.

  3. People are going to go nuts over Dragonriders. I still haven't read any of the novels, but people really love them.

    And I admit I'm a fan of the Night at the Museum movies. They're silly but fun. :)

  5. I only watched the first Night at the Museum but it was fun and heartwarming - haven't seen the second one though...However, I did read a few of the Dragonriders of Pern books and LOVED them. It would be VERY cool to see the books brought to life ala LOTR :)

  8. My hubby and kids love Night At The Museum movies. They always quote the "I No Dumb Dumb, You Dumb Dumb" scene! They will love this new movie!

  9. Oh, my heck! I'm so excited to hear that about the Pern series. This is one of my favorite series with Anne McCaffrey being one of my favorite authors. It just makes me sad that she didn't live to see this happy.

    And just for clarification, it is NOT a fantasy series; there's no magic. Yes, there are dragons, but Anne argued for years when people kept calling it fantasy. She said it was SciFi. And she would know. In fact the name Pern stands for Parallel Earth, Resources Negligible (i.e., insufficient to support interstellar commercial investment).

    Sorry. Yeah. I'm a total Pern nerd.

    Love the new trailer for Night at the Museum.

  10. Night at the Museum 3 looks like it will be fun. Stiller is always amusing. It's hard to make sequels that live up to the first, but judging from the trailer, it should be good.

  11. Hope NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB is as funny and cute as the others in the series. It has a good cast that should keep everyone laughing.
