CHRIS PRATT FOR 'MAGNIFICENT SEVEN' REMAKE WITH DENZEL WASHINGTON? 'TERMINATOR GENISYS' TRAILER WITH JAI COURTNEY, EMILIA CLARKE & SCHWARZY! JASON RALPH, SOSIE BACON LEAD 'MAGICIANS' TV SERIES

CHRIS PRATT TO STAR IN
'MAGNIFICENT SEVEN' REMAKE?
It seems that it wasn't enough for Chris Pratt to be just a guardian of the galaxy, or to tame the dinosaurs in JURASSIC WORLD, or to be COWBOY NINJA VIKING, but he now stands a chance to become one of  THE MAGNI- FICENT SEVEN too! According to 'Deadline' he is in talks to join Denzel Washington in the big screen remake of the famous western which will be helmed by Antoine Fuqua for MGM! As you might remember the original had some of the biggest movie stars in the cast from Yul Brynner to Charles Bronson and Steve McQueen, playing seven gunmen who are hired by a small Mexican village to protect them from from a nefarious tyrant named Calvera! Pratt would play a new gunfighter!

SYFY'S 'THE MAGICIANS'
CASTS JASON RALPH AND SOSIE BACON IN THE LEAD ROLES
In TV news, first actors have been chosen for SyFy's THE MAGICIANS sf show: Jason Ralph and Sosie Bacon will topline the small screen adaptation of Lev Grossman's bestselling fantasy trilogy. The series follows 20 somethings who, while studying magic in New York, discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real and poses grave danger to humanity. Jason Ralph will play Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant, withdrawn yet strangely compelling young man who has always been a huge fan of a series of books set in the magical land of Fillory. When he’s recruited as a new student at the mysterious Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, he realizes that magic is very real, and that he himself is a potentially gifted practitioner. Kevin Bacon's daughter, Sosie will be Alice. Born of a magical but neglectful family, Alice is an outcast among her fellow students at Brakebills, but nonetheless emerges as the most brilliant magical practitioner in her class.

'TERMINATOR GENISYS' TRAILER
 SCHWARZENEGGER IS BACK!
I'm a bit late with this one, but here's the first trailer for TERMINATOR: GENISYS, which comes out next July! Jason Clarke plays John Connnor, who sends Kyle Reese (delightfully naked Jai Courtney) back in time to keep his mother, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), safe before John is born. Unlike the naive and innocent young woman played by Linda Hamilton in the 1984 classic movie, Kyle finds a much different Sarah. She was raised by an ageing T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) she calls "Pops," after a different Terminator killed her parents when she was just nine years old.

  2. As much as I like Schwarzenegger, I don't think this TERMINATOR, is going to be a patch on the others. Delightfully naked or not :)

  3. A couple of months ago I went to see the Japanese film "Seven Samurai" that Hollywood copied for "The Magnificent Seven." I only made it half way through, though. The friggin thing is 4 hours long and slow as molasses. I don't care if it IS art!

    1. any art that last for four hours ain't art but torture :)

    2. The Seen Samurai is in my opinion one of the greatest films ever made. For me it wasn't torture, it was pure pleasure. If you had stayed to the end you'd have seen that last battle fought entirely in the rain.

      If you didn't like Seven Samurai, you should try his Dreams. It is all in colour and a tour de force.

  4. Chris Pratt is certainly the man of the moment, but Denzel Washington seems an odd choice for the Magnificent Seven. As for the new Terminator, I know it's Arnie, and I'll have to see it, but I don't see what's left for them to do with the idea.

    1. Yep, Denzel is past tense and I don't know why they keep giving him new roles.

  5. I think I'd rather catch the Librarians that the three featured today. Maybe I'm into soft war? No war? Minions.

  6. It's actually cool to see Arnold as Terminator again.

  7. Wow, another Terminator? Sometimes I wonder why they keep cranking out the same junk over and over. It's time for Arnold to hang it up!

    2. I think they can get away with it because it's a movie about time traveling....

    1. I've no idea... I don't think they have the idea either :) I wasn't even able to count which one was this one - the fifth, the sixth one?

  9. I've never been a fan of Arnold's and less so when he married into that nasty Kennedy family. Also I hated the Terminator.

    It will be hard to sell a remake of The Magnificent Seven to old farts like me. But I would definitely give it a chance.

  11. Oh darn.... a reboot with the exact same shot in the alley and this time an Asian terminator imitating Robert Patrick's facial expressions. And, of course, there are more references to the first two movies than there is originality: "Come with me if you want to life!" Oh zip it.

    Did you say an ageing T-800?

    1. T-800 reminds me of a type of flour for baking :)

    2. And that's why it is ageing? I get it. The plot thickens...
