JUDE LAW IS VILLAIN IN GUY RITCHIE'S 'KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE: KING ARTHUR' EPIC ADVENTURE! 'LEMONY SNICKET' AND 'BEWITCHED' TO RETURN AS TV SERIES! 'COMET' TRAILER WITH JUSTING LONG, EMMY ROSSUM

JUDE LAW IS THE VILLAIN IN
'KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE: KING ARTHUR' EPIC ADVENTURE
I can't say I was impressed when Guy Ritchie decided to choose Charlie Hunnam as the leading man King Arthur for KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE: KING ARTHUR, I just don't see him as a lead man, but now they've added a nice spice into the cast: our beloved British thespian Jude Law has been cast as the main villain in this historical adventure which is envisioned as the first part of a possible six movie medieval franchise. I've already informed you a month ago that Astrid Berges Frisbey has been cast as Arthur's unfaithful lover Guinevere. Idris Elba was supposed to play Arthur's mentor Bedivere, but he has left the project and Ritchie is currently searching for a replacement! Jude Law is no stranger to medieval projects since he is famous for his outstanding theatrical portrayal of Henry V in London! 

'LEMONY SNICKET'
TO BECOME NETFLIX TV SERIES
In today's TV updates (beside the info that THE MILLERS at CBS are the latest comedy to be cancelled this season after BAD JUDGE, A TO Z, MANHATTAN LOVE STORY, SELFIE, with MULANEY and MCCARTHYS under the same treat too), Netflix has announced that they will turn LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS into TV series! Based on book series it had been turned into a film with Jim Carrey and Meryl Streep back in 2004!
NBC ORDERS 'BEWITCHED' PILOT
Meanwhile, NBC has ordered a pilot episode for BEWITCHED series a new take on the classic sitcom which followed a witch married to an ordinary mortal man, chronicling the way her powers and wicked family get in the way of her efforts to live a normal, magic-free life as a typical suburban housewife. The new series would focus on her 20 year old granddaughter, also a witch, who is realizing that magic cannot conjure true love!

'COMET' TRAILER
JUSTIN LONG AND EMMY ROSSUM IN DAZZLING SF ROMANCE
I'm a bit late with  this trailer, but you can still check it out: it is for COMET sf romance coming out this December in which Justin Long and Emmy Rossum are star crossed lovers whose relationship blooms and unravels over the course of six years!. When a chance encounter brings together the cynical Dell (Long) and the quick-witted Kimberly (Rossum), the stage is set for a tempestuous love affair that unfolds like a puzzle. As the film zigzags back and forth in time-from a meteor shower in LA, to an encounter in a Paris hotel room, to a fateful phone call-an unforgettable portrait of a relationship emerges. Sumptuously shot and boasting incredible chemistry between the leads, COMET is a one-of-a-kind cosmic love story.

  1. I suppose watching King Arthur is like watching Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Depending on which character the studio wants to play up - becomes the focal point. One time Scrooge, another time Tiny Tim, oops, what about the ghosts? My point - play it by ear.

    I never saw Lemony Snicket. I thought it would be too silly... even though I enjoy most Jim Carey films.

    Comet looks intriguing. All that fire and ice. Thanks for the trailer.

    1. That is how they plan to do a huge Robin Hood franchise - by focusing on a different Merry Man in each of the six or seven movies....

      I did watch LEMONY SNICKET, it was monotonous and a bit drawn out for watching... Carrey and Meryl were great as always

  3. LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS would make for a brilliant TV series!

    Enjoyed the COMET trailer, and anything with Jude Law would be worth watching. Just saying :)

  5. well, I love Jude Law in anything so I'm in for that and Bewitched could possibly be fun, or horribly stupid.

    1. we do love Jude, he is the law!
      NBC is famous for killing their sitcoms prematurely, so hopefully BEWITCHED has some charms

  8. I think Charlie makes a fabulous lead in Sons of Anarchy, so I think he will also be great in Knights.

    Lemony.... hmmm. I did not like the movie. I am open for giving the tv series a try though. They have had some time to make them a little better by now, I would think.

    1. Charlie Hunnam has both the long hair and a beard :) But he is skinny, bonny and looks like a thug not a king
