1ST LOOK AT HUGH JACKMAN AS BLACKBEARD IN 'PAN'! STUNNING 'FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD' TRAILER WITH TOM STURRIDGE, MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS! 'LAST KINGDOM' EPIC SERIES GETS MATTHEW MACFADYEN! ITV ORDERS 'JEKYLL & HYDE' EPIC SHOW

1ST PIC OF HUGH JACKMAN AS
CAPTAIN BLACKBEARD IN 'PAN'
In the case you don't recognise him, that below is the first look of Hugh Jackman as Captain Blackbeard in new Peter PAN movie, and you can also see the first poster of little Levi Miller who is playing the boy who wouldn't grow up! To hit theatres next July, the movie will tell the story of how Peter Pan and Hook (Garrett Hedlund) started out as friends, working on Blackbeard's pirate ship. Amanda Seyfried will play Mary, while Rooney Mara will portray Tiger Lily.

ALEXANDER DREYMON JOINED BY
MATTHEW MACFADYEN, RUTGER HAUER IN 'THE LAST KINGDOM' 
In TV news, BBC has announced the whole cast for their historical series THE LAST KINGDOM! I told you two months ago that, in the show set during the reign of Alfred the Great, who as King of Wessex fought off a Viking invasion, Alexander Dreymon will play Uhtred, who was born the son of a Saxon nobleman but is orphaned by the Vikings and then kidnapped and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested. On a quest to claim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands. Matthew MacFadyen, Rutger Hauer, Ian Hart, David Dawson, Tobias Santelmann, will also star!
NEW 'JEKYLL & HYDE' SERIES
Speaking of British series, ITV has ordered new JEKYLL & HYDE set in 1930's London following young, attractive and troubled hero, Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor. Newly qualified, Robert is on a quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’ which is being controlled with medication by Dr Vishal Najaran. He will be transforming into Hyde in moments of extreme anger and stress, and when his or the lives of others are threatened. The series will have CGI monsters, ghouls, zombies, werewolves, vampires and general freaks of nature!

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
 STUNNING FIRST TRAILER!
Gorgeous first trailer with rather stunning music in it has been released for upcoming big screen adaptation of FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD based on Thomas Hardy's novel! The first of Hardy’s works to find substantial acclaim and commercial success, the novel tells the story of the inhabitants of the semi fictional Wessex and the suitors of Bathsheba Everdene, a strong minded country heiress, who attracts three different men - sheep farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), charismatic Sergeant Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge) and wealthy bachelor William Boldwood (Michael Sheen). The movie should arrive into cinemas next Spring!

  2. I never would have known that was Hugh Jackman. It certainly is a different take on the part . . . that armor and feathers are not at all practical for a pirate, but we'll see where it fits into the story.

  11. Hugh looks like the serious type pirate.
    O don't know if we'll get "The Last Kingdom" over here - would be nice.
    Interesting twist on Jekyll & Hyde - life of the grandson.
    "Far from the maddening crowd" is stunning.
