KARL URBAN JOINS ROBERT REDFORD, BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD IN 'PETE'S DRAGON'! 'MADAME BOVARY' TRAILER WITH MIA WASIKOWSKA, RHYS IFANS! DAN STEVENS, DAKOTA JOHNSON KNOW 'HOW TO BE SINGLE'

KARL URBAN JOINS
DISNEY'S 'PETE'S DRAGON'
We've mentioned our most beloved Karl Urban just days ago as the possible AQUAMAN villain, and now Disney has snatched the Kiwi actor for a role in their remake of PETE'S DRAGON! He will join Wes Bentley, Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard in the film in which newcomer Oakes Fegley plays little Pete whose best friend happens to be a dragon with whom he lives in a forest after his parents died in a car accident. Robert Redford will be playing a local resident who tells tales of dragons that no one in town believes, and Bryce might play his daughter! Oona Laurence will play the daughter of a mill owner, while the other characters will include a forest ranger who finds young Pete, the mill owner and his greedy brother. Karl Urban could possibly play the mill owner?

'HOW TO BE SINGLE' ROMCOM
ADS DAN STEVENS, DAKOTA JOHNSON, LESLIE MAN
In the news from the romantic front, upcoming new ensemble romantic comedy HOW TO BE SINGLE is rounding up its stellar cast! Dan Stevens, Dakota Johnson, Leslie Man, Alison Brie and Rebel Wilson are the first names in the cast! According to 'Deadline', spanning a multi-year period, the film (based on Liz Tuccillo novel) suggests it is not our relationships, but our single times in between, that truly define us. The film will give an honest portrayal of both the female and male views of singlehood. Additionally, the film will look at relateable issues such as; online dating, the debate about how long to wait before having children, when to get married, blind dating, casual sex and the fear of commitment.

Paul Giamatti, Ezra Miller, Rhys Ifans, Logan Marshall Green also star!

    5. Facebook won't show them all to everybody.. they only select a few or even none sometimes.... bastards... when I post at HOLLYWOOD SPY page they show it only to a few dozen people eventhough I have half a thousand followers there ... they demand from me to pay for more.... they can eat my shorts

  2. Nothing like an Urban tale, eh?
    How to be Single sounds good.
    Bovary could have been hanging with the rich bovine but chose to wallow with the pigs, again! She'll need to see, How to Be Single, right?

  5. Madame Bovary is indeed like stepping into a painting. The images are delicately shot with just the right color and lighting.

  7. How to Be Single. I may catch that one. Singlehood has always fascinated me because I never really experienced it. I married my high school sweetheart, so I never experienced the whole dating and breakup thing, online dating, one night stands. It's a whole other world from my experiences.
