THEIR FINEST HOUR AND A HALF
SAM CLAFLIN AND LILY JAMES FOR WORLD WAR TWO DRAMA
We're all World War 2 today, people, starting with the news on THEIR FINEST HOUR AND A HALF BBC Films project which is currently eyeing Sam Claflin and Lily James for the lead roles! The Lone Scherfig helmed big screen adaptation of Lissa Evans novel will revolve around a British movie crew who try to boost people's morale after the infamous London Blitz devastated the area during World War II.

DID YOU KNOW?
Sam Claflin is currently one of the most sought after young actors awaiting the premieres of THE RIOT CLUB, HUNGER GAMES and LOVE, ROSIE, with Lily Collins, while Lily James is Kenneth Branagh's CINDERELLA next to Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter, and also the female lead in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES!

FIRST 'DAD'S ARMY' PHOTOS
WITH CATHERINE ZETA JONES, MICHAEL GAMBON & BILL NIGHY
Only a few weeks ago I announced the work on the remake of British 70's sitcom DAD'S ARMY and now, with the movie production already under way, we have the first photos with the stellar cast which includes   Catherine Zeta Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon and Toby Jones! The hilarious comedy follows a provincial British Home Guard in 1944 as they ready themselves to invade France at the height of   World War II. As they spend their days, mostly doing nothing productive, their laziness is interrupted by the arrival of the sassy and mysterious female journalist into their town!

'FREE FIRE' FINDS STELLAR CAST
 LUKE EVANS, OLIVIA WILDE, ARMIE HAMMER, CILLIAN MURPHY
Speaking of fights and the 70s, you will see those in Ben Wheatley's FREE FIRE movie which has rounded up a rather stellar cast lead by currently the biggest epic star Luke Evans (DRACULA UNTOLD, HOBBIT, CROW) alongside Olivia Wilde, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy! The story is set in 1978 Boston, following a woman named Justine (Olivia Wilde) who has set up a meeting between two Irishmen (Cillian Murphy and Michael Smiley) and a gang lead by Luke Evans and Armie Hammer for an arms deal. When shots are fired before the deal is made, the meeting turns into a deadly game of survival.
Ben Wheatley is currently finishing another 70's movie HIGH RISE which also stars Luke Evans next to a starstudded ensemble cast including Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons and James Purefoy!

    2. We did, but it was our second trip. It just didn't have that magical spark as the first one did, but it was still fun. I don't think we'll be making the trip again to Florida. Maybe we'll check out Disneyland in California sometime though. I have family there, so we could knock out 2 birds with one stone if we headed there for our next vacation.

    1. Nope, it is based on a classic British comedy series which had every episode watched by stunning 18 million viewers!

    3. I think that you need to adjust your comment form over in your dashboard so that your comments do not open in a separate page or box. I think that the reply button works only when comments are under the post. You have those options in the comment section at your dashboard
