 'GODS OF EGYPT' SET PICS
WITH GERARD BUTLER, NIKOLAJ COSTER WALDAU, ELODIE YUNG
We're having a movie set photos day today, people,  beginning with some new pictures and a poster for next year's biggest epic adventure GODS OF EGYPT. I've already shown you first photos of Gerard Butler in the costume of Set, Egypt's naughty God of Darkness and Storms, and of Elodie Yung as Godess of Love Hathor, and now you can also check out the first set photo of GAME OF THRONE star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, a god of the sky and son of Osiris, who must defend himself from the wrath of his brother Set! Young actor Brenton Thwaites will appear in the historical spectacle as Bek, a human thief, Courtney Eaton as Zaya, a slave girl cursed by Set, legendary Geoffrey Rush plays Ra, a god of the sun and father of Set and Osiris, and Chadwick Boseman will portray Thoth, the god of wisdom! Rufus Sewell is also in the cast. The $150 million spectacle is currently being directed by Alex Proyas with the movie scheduled to open the blockbuster season in April 2016!

 'BEN HUR' SET PHOTOS WITH
JACK HUSTON AND RODRIGO SANTORO AS JESUS
 Then there are also the first pictures from the sets of the new big screen adaptation of famous BEN HUR scheduled for March next year under the helm of Timur Bekmambetov and based on the novel by Lew Wallace which follows a falsely accused nobleman who survives years of slavery to take vengeance on his best friend who betrayed him. Jack Huston (BOARDWALK EMPIRE, GREAT FIRE) plays Judah Ben Hur, HOMELAND's Nazanin Boniadi is the female lead as Esther, Rodrigo Santoro has the honour of playing Jesus himself, with Morgan Freeman also in  the cast, while Toby Kebbell plays the main villain Messalla.

EPIC SAGA ON BRITISH QUEEN
And there are also the wedding photos from the set of Netflix's lavish historical series THE CROWN in which Claire Foy will be Queen Elizabeth II, John Lithgow is Churchill, while Matt Smith will play Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh! Stephen Daldry is directing the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world – Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street – and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. The $100 million expensive series will chronicle the Queen's reign from her ascent to the throne at the age of 26, right through to the present day!

    1. nooo, he's purdy, Russell ain't :) and plus Gerard has such a nice personality which we can hardly say for that Australian drunkard :)

  3. Okay maybe I'm crazy (feel free not to agree with me. grin) but doesn't Gerard Butler look like Russell Crowe?

  4. I'm all over anything about ancient Egypt. Today's Egypt is a huge disappointment to read about.

    1. I just hope ISIS does not get to Egypt, because the way they're destroying not just human lives but also monuments (the latest one were historical sites in Palmira) the pyramids might go to hell too

  5. I think I forgot all about Gerard until now. Haven't seen him in anything lately. Or at least, anything worth remembering.

  6. Gerard looks like he's buffed up again for this film Methinks we shall get to see him half naked and sweating again. I certainly hope so.

    It's almost jarring to see the Queen's Wedding portrayed in colour. I've seen it so often on telly it almost feels like it happened in black and white in real life. What I don't understand is how in the hell they cast Lithgow as Churchill. I like him as a comedic actor, but I just can't picture him as the imposing British Bulldog. As it will be on Netflix, I'll watch it. And if it's good, I'll stick with it.

    1. he will be naughty, naked and ebil, dear... and we shall all bow to Amighty Set :)

      I don't understand how they cast Claire for the lead role. I mean I'm not a fan of the queen, but Foy is such an irritating actress... and just doesn't have the royal presence nor the calm and trustworthy aura that the queen possesses

    2. Ya, QE2 does always seem to be in absolute control at all times and she's known how to do it since they first put that crown on her head.

      I'll be off blogger for a few days as it's cooled off and I've weeding and mowing to do. Also I want to take some nice walks while there's still time for it.

  7. John Lithgow is too skinny to be Churchill

  10. Does anyone else miss lighthearted romantic comedies like the ones Sandra Bullock used to do? :-) It's all so intense and dark now.

    1. it is... I'd post about them romantic flicks, and I had heart-warming, delightful movies Sundays here, but they don't happen anymore and even my readers don't seem to like them much
