1ST 'QUEEN OF THE DESERT' EPIC CLIP AND PHOTOS WITH NICOLE KIDMAN, DAMIAN LEWIS, ROBERT PATTINSON. HUGH JACKMAN HAS 'COLLATERAL BEAUTY'! VANESA LACHEY JOINS MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR IN 'PEOPLE ARE TALKING'

 HUGH JACKMAN
TO STAR IN 'COLLATERAL BEAUTY'
After you see him as the evil pirate Blackbeard in epic adventure PAN, our favourite Australian super hunk Hugh Jackman will star in the new film from Allan Loeb the director of ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL. COLLA- TERAL BEAUTY will see him star with Rooney Mara in the story which revolves around a New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy. When his colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression, the plan works, but not in a way that anyone imagined.

  'PEOPLE ARE TALKING' SITCOM
VANESSA LACHEY IS MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR'S WIFE!
Earlier last month I announced most of the sitcoms that have been ordered into whole seasons by the major networks and now some of them are in the process of recasting before the shooting starts. One of them, NBC's PEOPLE ARE TALKING has just done it by putting gorgeous Vanessa Lachey in the lead female role instead of Meaghan Rath. This might lead to one of the most beautiful couples we've ever seen on TV since she will play the wife of Mark Paul Gosselaar! PEOPLE ARE TALKING is an unabashed comedy about two diverse couples — one played by Mark Paul Gosselaar and Lachey and the other by Tone Bell and Bresha Webb — who are neighbours and best friends.

  'QUEEN OF THE DESERT' FIRST PICTURES AND CLIP
NICOLE KIDMAN & DAMIAN LEWIS
And your visual treat for today are the first pictures from Werner Herzog's upcoming new epic drama QUEEN OF THE DESERT bringing us the first look on Nicole Kidman, Damian Lewis, James Franco and Robert Pattinson in the sprawling epic story. The film had its premier at this year's Berlin Film Festival (where it received mostly negative reviews) and should hit European cinemas this Autumn although it still doesn't have a USA opening date.

EXPLORER AND WRITER
 Filmed in Morocco QUEEN OF THE DESERT is a historical biopic and a chronicle of Gertrude Bell's life, a traveller, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attach√© for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century who is credited with helping to catalyse the creation of the Middle East. Damian Lewis is Lt. Colonel Charles Doughty Wylie, an unhappily married British soldier who starts a turbulent affair with Bell between 1913 and 1915, before he was killed in active duty at Gallipoli.

  1. That's a shame QUEEN OF THE DESERT received such negative reviews, since Gertrude Bell's has so much potential. Of course, as much as I could watch Nicole Kidman in anything, she does seem oddly cast here.

    1. They say the film was uncharacteristic for Herzog. Kidman is almost always miscast. She gets the best roles which would almost always fit better to some other actress

  2. No movie can be bad with Nicole Kidman, interesting Queen of the Desert...

  3. While I was watching the trailer...I wanted it to continue. Damian Lewis is just amazing in any role. So is Nicole Kidman.

  4. Nicole Kidman doesn't seem right for that roll. I can only think of her in seductive rolls like Eyes Wide Shut. Somehow, I do not think Gertrude Bell's life story would have that seductive edge, but then again she was having an affair...

    1. and plus Nicole has zero emotion on her botoxed face :)

    2. she's the queen of botox, that is what she is... although Blue won't agree... he has hots for her...

      Delete
    3. She would have made a good model at one time as she wears clothes well. But now she's too old for that, even with a botox face :0)

    4. I wish a surgeon would fix me with some botox... I hear it stops sweating and my bald head sweats a lot when it's hot :(

    1. I haven't either, but I usually catch up on Kidman's movies at some point. She has good movies and bad roles :) Pattinson... I just don't do....

  7. I wasn't too keen on People Are Talking, but we do love Mark Paul, so I may give it a few episodes and see how it goes. I don't know much about Vanessa Lachey, other than her pretty face. We'll see if she's much of an actress in this new show.

    1. she is awfully cute, kinda like Nick is... they're such a loving and cute couple... it is always nice seeing their idyllic family pics ... you can just see that he found in her everything he didn't have with Jessica :)

      Delete
    2. I thought Nick and Jessica made a pretty couple too, but their personalities were just way off. Jessica seemed like a free spirit and Nick runs a tight ship, and kind of seemed like a jerk in some of those Newlywed episodes. I hear all the guys from his band had attitude problems. Not very welcoming to new music artists on the scene. But I agree. I think Nick and Vanessa seem like a lovely pair and wouldn't mind seeing more of them on the screen.

    3. they were cute and I loved them together at first, but she was awfully stupid and for him it was like living with a little girl. Vanessa is more of a mature woman type who can respect his personality

      Delete
    4. I know Jessica comes off as stupid, but honestly think it's all a public act. The girl can't be that stupid to build the empire she has. I'd act like I didn't have a clue too if it got me the fortune she has ;)

      Delete
    5. but she has fortune because she is so darn cute and pretty who wouldn't wanna buy clothes and cosmetics from a kitten like her? :)

  8. Collateral Beauty looks interesting.

    Negative reviews doesn't sound good, but I've enjoyed movies that have plenty of them.

    1. yes, I've read somewhere that the mark for the movie at Rotten Tomatoes is currently zero :) Not that we ever trust the Rotten fanboys over there....

  9. Even when one of his films tank, Herzog is always interesting. He's got the most unusual vision of any director I've ever known of. He likes to keep the camera on an actor just beyond the point where it makes you uncomfortable before he'll change scenes.

    Don't know why he cast Kidman. Maybe is was from a perverse desire to destroy his film that made him do it :0)

    1. Dahlink, just tell me you ain't a fan of his Akire :) Klaus gives me such creeps.... or gave me.. he ain't alive anymore.. is he?

      Could be :) Another director wanted to do the same movie but with Angelina :) Where do they get these ideas of putting frigid cold actresses in sprawling epics?

      Delete
    2. They're thinking box office draw is what they're thinking.

      Delete
    3. but, dahlink, Kidman doesn't really have box office power... and Angelina hasn't got it either... her only success was MaleFicent but that was more because it was Disney's than because of her

      Delete
  10. I'll defo have a look at Queen of the desert.

  11. I haven't seen a Warner Herzog movie in years. They're usually huge, glorious, sprawling messes. Sounds like "Queen of the Desert" is more of the same.

    1. I just saw his "Grizzly Man" Oh God it was bad in a way only Herzog can be bad.

      Delete
    2. they say it is very unlike Herzog which is why the critics hated it... :) I will probably have more criticism towards Franco and RPats :)

  12. I'm sure men would say I was crazy for saying Vanessa Lachey is a lucky woman! I always thought Nick Lachey was handsome. He must have come along before I started seeing 20-something men as children!

    1. He is and he also seems as a very nice and kind man and husband too. I'm very happy for the two of them... I think they have two kids now...

  13. She has always been a fine woman

  14. Vanessa Lachey... Come to papa. Hello Dezzz. What did Nicole Kidman do to herself?
