1ST LOOK AT LEE PACE AS KING THRANDUIL IN 'HOBBIT BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES'! WARNER BROS. PLANS MASSIVE 'ARABIAN NIGHTS' SEVEN MOVIE FRANCHISE! FIRST 'ANTMAN' POSTER WITH PAUL RUDD, MICHAEL DOUGLAS! 'PARTNERS' TEASER & POSTER WITH KELSEY GRAMMER AND MARTIN LAWRENCE

THE ARABIAN NIGHTS
SEVEN MOVIES FANTASY FRANCHISE AT WARNER  BROS!
Deadline reports today that Warner Bros. has bought the script for a possible seven movie fantasy adventure franchise ARABIAN NIGHTS! Also known as One Thousand and One Stories, it is a well known collection of vivid folk tales from Ancient Arabia, Persian, Egypt. The frame of all other stories is based on Persian king who discovers that both his wife and his brother's wife have been unfaithful and has them executed. For several years, he starts marrying young virgins, executing them the next morning before they can betray him. When the king's "vizier," whose duty it is to find these virgins, cannot find them any more, the vizier's daughter offers herself as the next bride, but before he can execute her, she tells him a story which she does not conclude. The king postpones the execution so he can hear the end, but every time she ends a story, she starts a new one. This forces the king to keep postponing the execution for one thousand and one nights as she keeps telling new tales. Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba are all characters from the stories of beautiful Scheherazade.

FIRST 'ANT-MAN' POSTER WITH
 PAUL RUDD & MICHAEL DOUGLAS
In one of today's photo treats, you can see the first poster for ANT-MAN which will crawl into cinemas next July starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Patrick Wilson. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

  3. I remember The Arabian Nights from when I was a kid and I haven't thought of it in an age. It appears as if the focus is to be on sex and murder in this one.

    I'm pretty much done in on Super Hero films now. I have to wonder how much make up it will take for Michael Douglas not to look like he's already dead :)

    1. Not really, dahlink. Arabian Nights are stories of adventure and wisdom and sometimes of fatal fate, but mostly with a message. They will probably make it exotic and lavish.

      I always feel such pity for our dearest Catherine Zeta Jones, dahlink.

    2. I have no idea how such a pretty woman can tap that.

      My blog had it's third birthday last month. Out of all the people that I began that blog with, you is the only one who has never taken me for granted. Some folks are about to be in for a rather rude awakening :)

    3. I can only imagine that he is/was good in bed, because if I remember correctly he was a sexual addict before. And he is powerful in Hollywood. But none of those two things are a quality :)

      Mine was five in April. You know how much me lurvs you, dear, to bits and then some more :)

    1. the chap had a sad life, what can I tell you. Dougray Scott marvellously portrayed him in Hallmark mini series.

  5. Didn't take long to run out of virgins. Good thing that last one knew how to tell a story.

    And I never tire of seeing King Thranduil. :)

  14. I too am gifted with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale. Just so you know. That third Hobbit flick should be thrown in the fires of Mount Doom. There... I said it, my precious.

  15. The Vizier's daughter sounds like one smart cookie. And her husband sounds like a real ass. I bet he would have gotten along with Henry VIII splendidly.
