ITV TO MAKE 'TUTANKHAMUN' EPIC MINI SERIES! 'THE FINEST HOURS' TRAILER WITH CHRIS PINE, ERIC BANA, BEN FOSTER! '90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN' TRAILER WITH HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN, KATE BOSWORTH

 'TUTANKHAMUN' EPIC SERIES
ON THE DISCOVERY OF HIS TOMB
While we are anxiously awaiting to see the premiere of TUT three part mini series at Spike on July 19th, over across the ocean, British ITV has announced the work on four part mini series TUTANKHAMUN, but unlike TUT, which deals with the Pharaoh himself, this one will bring the true story of how Howard Carter came to discover the tomb of Ancient Egypt's boy-king. The story will begin in 1905 as he leads an expedition to find lost treasures in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. However, he finds himself living rough when his license to dig is revoked, and he is forced to sell his previous finds in order to survive. An unlikely friendship with a British aristocrat named Lord Carnavon brings Carter back to archaeology, and helps him make one of the most significant discoveries of the modern age. Peter Webber (GIRL WITH A PEARL EARING) is directing!

SPEND '90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN'
Giving Films have sent us the first trailer and poster for new movie drama 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN from which all of the profits will be given to charities after it premieres in cinemas September 11th! Don Piper (Hayden Christensen) died in 1989, when a truck crushed his car. Declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene, Don’s body lay under a tarp for the next 90 minutes. Don’s soul, meanwhile, was experiencing love, joy and life like he’d never known before. Don was in Heaven. When another pastor’s prayers helped bring Don back to life, he became a living miracle! Yet this is one miracle Don wished never happened. Heaven’s bliss was replaced by excruciating pain and emotional turmoil. With the support of his beloved Eva (Kate Bosworth), their three kids and friends near and far, Don fights to regain a semblance of his previous life.


 'THE FINEST HOURS' TRAILER
WITH CHRIS PINE, ERIC BANA, BEN FOSTER AND CASSEY AFFLECK
The second trailer for today is for another touching drama, Chris Pine's sea disaster movie THE FINEST HOUR which Disney will release next January.  In February of 1952, one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast struck New England, damaging an oil tanker off the coast of Cape Cod and literally ripping it in half. On a small lifeboat faced with frigid temperatures and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel. Eric Bana, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, Graham McTavish and Cassey Affleck are also in the star studded cast!

    1. now, that's the first such comment on him :)) I watched him and Nicolas Cage in OUTCAST last month, the Chinese epic, and they were both so atrociously bad that it was actually amusing watching them in their painful efforts in acting :)

    2. He is the poor man's Nicolas Cage..
      He is very hit and miss, but sometimes he is good.

    3. I hear he recently became a daddy with Rachel Bilson. Well, at least that is nice news from him.

  5. Oh dear, is Hayden Christiansen one of those holy roller types? Or is he just hard up for work these days?

  8. It's funny how all these "I went to heaven" books happened to very religious Christians or their children. What a coincidence.

    1. it is very convenient for their propaganda :) and such films are becoming quite a hit in Hollywood thanks to that HEAVEN'S FOR REAL movie last year

  9. Finest Hours freaks me out. Open water gives me anxiety. I thought about going on a cruise some day, but I'd probably have to take a large amount of Xanax just to board.

    1. that is just what I said to Sandra above... water freaks me out too... I don't even like to walk beside a lake or river.... too scary :)

    2. I know! I will get in at the beach every now and again. But even then I have little panics that I'm going to get stuck in a rip tide or a fish might touch me. When we went to Florida I stayed in the shallow end. The thought of sharks or even jellyfish getting too close kept me right on the water's edge.
