STUNNING 'CINDERELLA' TRAILER WITH CATE BLANCHETT, RICHARD MADDEN, HELENA BONHAM CARTER! FX ORDERS TOM HARDY'S 'TABOO' EPIC TV SERIES! CHRIS PRATT IS 'COWBOY, NINJA, VIKING'

FX ORDERS TOM HARDY'S
 'TABOO' HISTORICAL ADVENTURE DRAMA INTO SERIES
I have announced this project a year or so ago, but now the info is that FX has officially ordered TABOO historical series! Actor Tom Hardy has written the drama with his father Chips Hardy and he will also take the lead role of a 19th century adventurer in Africa! To be executive produced by Ridley Scott, the eight episode first season should air sometime in 2016 and it will follow James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy), a rogue adventurer who returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds to seek vengeance after the death of his father. Refusing to sell the family business to the East India Company, he sets out to build his own trade and shipping empire and finds himself playing a very dangerous game!

CHRIS PRATT IS
'COWBOY, NINJA, VIKING'
While his fans are, for some reason, raising havoc around the net because he wasn't voted the Sexiest Man Alive this year (People magazine gave that title deservedly to Chris Hemsworth), Chris Pratt is pondering on future projects. According to 'Collider' he will lead the cast in COWBOY NINJA VIKING as an assassin with Multiple Personality Disorder who possesses the skills of a cowboy, a ninja, and a viking! Pratt will be Duncan, a counter-intelligence agent known as a 'triplet' because of his three distinct personalities. Duncan escapes his handlers, hunting down the millionaire who masterminded the 'Triplet' program. As you know, Chris also has JURASSIC WORLD ahead of him!

STUNNING 'CINDERELLA' TRAILER
WITH CATE BLANCHETT, RICHARD MADDEN, LILY JAMES AND HELENA BONHAM CARTER
Something we've waited for a really long time is finally here: the first deeply enchanting trailer for Disney's and Kenneth Branagh's CINDERELLA which will dance its way into cinemas next March! You can also check out the first poster shot exclusively by Annie Leibovitz

ELLA IN A BLUE GOWN
The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine (marvellous Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella's father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever. Hayley Atwell plays CINDERELLA's mother, Derek Jacobi plays the King, and Stellan Skarsgård is the King's scheming adviser.

  1. Cowboy Ninja Viking sounds awesome! That is definitely one for the must-see list.

    Have you checked out the Jurassic World promo site yet, Dez? Very clever, and really has me excited about the effort being put into the movie.

    1. And it is a strange story, because we are not sure if Chris will play all of them or just the man from whom they come out :) It is possible that ninja, viking and cowboy will be other actors.

      JURASSIC WORLD trailer should come out next week at Thanksgiving :)

  2. Almost didn't recognize Madden when I saw the trailer this morning. He played Robb Stark in Game of Thrones.

    I also noticed another GoT actor (much smaller role) is also in Cinderella.

    1. Dicky Madden is always an absolute delight to watch! He was so brilliant last winter in KLONDIKE!

  3. I think I'd like to see Taboo. The aspect of a triple personality could be funny... depends on how they spin the tale.
    What's better than a glass slipper? Dr. Scholls' inserts. Sorry couldn't help myself. :DDDD

    1. I'd like to see TABOO too, that and INDIAN SUMMERS will bring us the vibe of colonial India which we haven't seen often in series! Do you remember THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN, I watched that one as a kid!

    2. Never read the novel or saw the series. One of my favorites though was "The Passage of India." Loved the character Aziz in the movie. I can still hear him yelling, "Mrs. Moore!"
      I'll have to check out Indian Summers.

  4. March can't come fast enough. Cinderella looks wonderful! Can't wait to see it!

    And boo hoo to those throwing a fit about who was chosen for Sexiest Man Alive. I don't put much stock in those silly awards, but I say Hemsworth is a pretty fitting choice.

    1. Isn't Blanchett just marvellous in it? She is an absolute heir to Meryl Streep's talent!
      Hunksworth is the winner :) although for me, I'd put Chris Evans on that throne or Hiddles or Luke Evans :)

  5. Cinderella looks spectacular! And how could it not, with a cast like that :)

    1. isn't it just spectacular! Too bad that, with the cast like that, they didn't find a more beautiful and more charismatic girl to play Cindy, maybe Margot Robbie

  6. I thought I would find the Cinderella story cheesy but I actually was caught away. It resembles the classic tale by Disney I read long ago.

    1. Hope TABOO will be very exotic and steamy, not gritty and dark

  14. So The Hubby recommended that I watch this film called "Bronson". So I ask him "Who is in it" And he says to me, "Some guy you've probably never heard of. His name is Tom Hardy" And I say, "Jesus Christ, I'm a woman, of course I know who Tom Hardy is," Then I promptly watched this film. Lots of naked Tom in that one darling.

    1. I know, dear, but I don't watch that kind of violent movies and Hardy seems to really like violence and aggressive characters

  16. That actress is beautiful. That seems like a great movie and I will definitely be seeing it. I love how they are doing these real life remakes like Malificient. They are certainly intriguing. :)

    1. Cate is great but not a double-fox in my book. Which is a good thing.
