HUGH JACKMAN IS 'GREATEST SHOWMAN ON EARTH'! NEW 'SEVENTH SON' EPIC TRAILER WITH BEN BARNES, JULIANNE MOORE, KIT HARINGTON! HBO ORDERS 'WESTWORLD' SERIES WITH ANTHONY HOPKINS, JAMES MARSDEN, RODRIGO SANTORO, MIRANDA OTTO

HUGH JACKMAN IS
 GREATEST SHOWMAN ON EARTH
You have already heard him sing in LES MISERABLES but I'm fully sure you won't mind hearing Hugh Jackman's heavenly voice again! According to 'Deadline' 20th Century Fox is finally moving on with the production on THE GREATEST SHOWMAN ON EARTH which is supposed to be the first original live action movie musical in last two decades! To start shooting next summer, the movie will see Hugh Jackman playing P.T. Barnum, as he literally invents show business and the three-ring circus. The showman had a penchant for pulling elaborate hoaxes on the gullible public before the three-ring circus took off. As you know, Hugh will, next year, play Captain Blackbeard in live action Peter PAN movie, and will star next to a good-natured robot in CHAPPIE sf movie.

HBO ORDERS 'WESTWORLD'
TV SERIES WITH ANTHONY HOPKINS, JAMES MARSDEN, ED HARRIS, RODRIGO SANTORO
In TV news, HBO has officially ordered WESTWORLD into TV series! Inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi movie this science fiction series will have a starstudded cast lead by Anthony Hopkins (as the director of WESTWORLD), Ed Harris (as a mysterious villain), Evan Rachel Wood (as an Westworld inhabitant who discovers she is actually an android), James Marsden (as a gunslinger), Thandie Newton (as a madame), Rodrigo Santoro and Miranda Otto! Described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin,  the series tells the story of a futuristic amusement park called Westworld where beautiful androids serve for the pleasure of human guests.

'SEVENTH SON' NEW TRAILER
BEN BARNES & JULIANNE MOORE
Before I present you with the first CINDERELLA movie trailer tomorrow, you can check out a new international trailer for THE SEVENTH SON epic fantasy which opens next February following Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges), a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory. In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. He has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man's only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son. Kit Harington also stars!

  1. The Seventh Son looks like it might have some potential, especially with that cast. We need more epic fantasy on the big screen, so let's hope it pans out.

    1. I hear you, epic fantasy and historical movies are usually the only ones I watch throughout the year, but sadly they usually flop at the boxoffice :( This year had tones of epic movies, but the next one will have a much weaker offer in that genre

  2. He's a talented man that Hugh Jackman. And rather handsom ...

    WESTWORLD sounds interesting. I like Thandie Newton.

  5. Evan Rachel Wood was on a TV show I watched back in the 90s--she was the young daughter. It was SO weird to see that sweet little girl grow up and almost marry Marilyn Manson!

    1. anybody marrying Manson is uber creepy :) Evan was always rather strange herself, I've never much liked her, she always plays evil people... I especially hated her in MILDRED PIERCE

    1. I've just seen the snow over at your place on TV, some cars stuck in piles of snow! Whenever I see such images I always pray that we will never have so much of it since nobody cleans the streets here unless they're the central ones..

  7. WESTWORLD has a lot of big names in it. Makes me wonder if it will be any good. Seems like when they overload on star power, the movie usually sucks.

  11. Seventh Son looks good. I noticed it's produced by the makers of Godzilla. Some of those monsters have a Godzilla-like quality.
