BBC & NETFLIX'S NEW 'WATERSHIP DOWN' ANIMATED MINI SERIES WITH JAMES MCAVOY, NICHOLAS HOULT, BEN KINGSLEY! 'THE DUEL' WESTERN TRAILER WITH LIAM HEMSWORTH, WOODY HARRELSON

'WATERSHIP DOWN' ANIMATED
 REMAKE WITH JAMES MCAVOY, NICHOLAS HOULT, BEN KINGSLEY
You gotta admit we haven't seen a prime time animated mini TV series in a long time and that is what Netflix and BBC are preparing for us: a new four episode animated version of WATERSHIP DOWN with the voices from James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Kingsley, John Boyega and Gemma Arterton.
Based on Richard Adams' classic novel WATERSHIP DOWN is set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, and follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stout hearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, towards a promised land and a more perfect society. Throughout the narrative, their culture is expanded upon via tales of the mythological first rabbit from whom the rest are descended. 300: RISE OF THE EMPIRE's Noam Murro is directing!

'THE DUEL' WESTERN TRAILER 
WITH WOODY HARRELSON AND LIAM HEMSWORTH
If the trailer for the Magnificent Seven wasn't enough for you last week, here's another Western trailer: THE DUEL, out in cinemas June 24th (believe it or not, the same date when Liam's INDEPENDENCE DAY is also out), starring Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, reuniting them again after HUNGER GAMES.  Liam Hemsworth plays David Kingston, a Texas Ranger who investigates a series of murders in a small town led by a charismatic preacher named Abraham Brant, played by Woody Harrelson. However, the routine undercover investigation soon turns personal for the ranger who must solve the case before he loses everything to the mysterious town.

  2. Watership down is a book I have read more as once! The first movie was good but nothing special. Now I'm looking forward to the series and very curious how it will look like!
    And a nice western for dessert! Thank you!

    1. I've heard it was really scary when I was a kid so I never read it :) I know the previous BBC's adaptation is a classic and often airs on their TV

  3. I agree with Mason. I love the Woody/Liam match-up. Two very talented actors should make this one a good watch. Looks like a real nail-biter!

  4. OMG, you KNOW how much I love Watership Down! I'm thrilled to hear of this mini-series remake. And if it's a Netflix co-production, hopefully it will be available here in Canada right away too, for a change.
