STUNNING 'THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES' EPIC BANNER TAPESTRY! BEN FOSTER JOINS CHRIS PINE IN 'THE FINEST HOUR'! DANIEL RADCLIFFE, BEN KINGSLEY IN HISTORICAL 'BROOKLYN BRIDGE'!

DISNEY'S 'THE FINEST HOURS' 
BEN FOSTER JOINS CHRIS PINE
Variety reports today that the latest of the stars to join Disney's upcoming action adventure THE FINEST HOURS is young actor Ben Foster. The cast already includes Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Graham McTavish and Holliday Grainger. The movie will be based on the true story of a 1952 courageous Coast Guard rescue mission (which is considered one of the biggest one in their history), set against one of the worst storms ever to hit the East Coast, during which an oil tanker was literally ripped in half. Facing subzero temperatures and waves as high as 70 feet, four Coast Guard members set off in a lifeboat to rescue over 30 crew members who were stranded in the sinking vessel.

HISTORICAL 'BROOKLYN BRIDGE' 
MOVIE GETS DANIEL RADCLIFFE AND BEN KING- SLEY
Another of the upcoming movies to be connected with sea and water in some way will also be BROOKLYN BRIDGE. This historical drama already has Daniel Radcliffe, Ben Kingsley and Brie Larson in the cast. To be directed by Doug McGrath (EMMA, NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, COMPANY MAN) the movie will see Radcliffe playing Washington Roebling, a talented but inexperienced young engineer who is left in charge of the construction of the BROOKLYN BRIDGE in the late 19th century after the death of his father (Kingsley). His wife (Larson) is drawn into his obsession to realise his father's vision.

STUNNING BANNER TAPESTRY
FOR THE HOBBIT THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES EPIC MOVIE
Mindblowingly stunning new banner tapestry has been released for this year's biggest epic adventure THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES and I've cut it into pieces for you so that you can enjoy all the details on it. It also features Luke Evans as Bard the  Bowman, Cate Blanchett as Elven queen Galadriel and Lee Pace as Elven king Thranduil, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly as Elven archers, Martin Freeman as Bilbo and Aidan Turner as Kili the Dwarf.
FLAMES OF WAR ARE UPON YOU
The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the legendary dragon), the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo's ...     ...    frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen), the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide - unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

    1. I didn't like the first two, so I'm expecting the last one to really be great and win me over :) Peter Jackson at least knows how to make battle scenes if nothing else...

    1. now, that will be a very long long long watch since the first two lasted for about three hours each if not longer.... And they're a bit boring :) Maybe a Hobbit weekend....

    2. My bad, I meant yeah, more of a Hobbit weekend or bits here and there until the story is done. Personally, I don't think they needed three movies to tell this story.

      Just put onion rolls together. They are on their first big rise now. Excited. Yum!

  7. I bet The Finest Hours will be a real nail biter! I am going to have to catch that one!

    Absolutely gorgeous imagery for The Hobbit. Thank you, fine sir, for breaking it all down so we could see the detail! I'm sure a lot of it would have been overlooked otherwise.

  8. BROOKLYN BRIDGE sounds well worth watching. Dan Radcliffe is turning out to be a mighty fine actor.

    And as for the Hobbit - well, can't wait for that!

    1. I couldn't stand him and those other three brats in HARRY PLOPPER, but I'm liking him as a grown up because he has that charming modesty around him

  9. Well, all I know is that dragon talks too much.

    I AM FIRE
    I.... AM DEATH

    To which I added, "I TALK TOO MUCH" and everyone at our local theater started laughing. Hey, it's a comedy after all! Just a very very very very very long long long one. Please no more CGI battles... please?

    2. and PS you'd had to hire a lot of really ugly actors if you were to have Orcs without CGI... and I'm not sure Julia Roberts is available :)))
