STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE
 NEW EW COVER REVEALED!
The latest issue of EW brings the first look at this December's STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE spin off movie showing Felicity Jones (as Jyn Erso) and Diego Luna (as Captain Cassian Andor) as rebels who are trying to steal the plans for the Death Star and their mission will see them infiltrate the ranks of the Imperial Forces. It has been confirmed, as you can see on the cover, that Darth Vader is also back in his younger days. Since the story precedes the first movie A NEW HOPE the film will show old ships, troopers and androids from the early days of the Empire. Also starring in the film are Mads Mikkelsen as her father Galen, Donnie Yen (As Chirrut Imwe) and Riz Ahmed (As Bodhi Rook).

MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE 
EPIC SERIES TEASER IS HERE!
Now, I can already tell you, people, with VICTORIA, POLDARK, VERSAILLES, TUTANKHAMUN, WILL, THE COLLECTION and other historical series we're really expecting an epic Autumn this year, and Italian RAI isn't holding back either, since the eight part epic series MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE is set to air this Autumn around Europe. RAI has released the first teaser, it is in Italian but you can get the glimpse of the visuals at least.

RICHARD MADDEN LEADS CAST 
The Medici family suffers a great loss with the death of its patriarch Giovanni (Dustin Hoffman). When the designated heir Cosimo (Richard Madden) discovers that his father was poisoned, he decides to keep the news to himself and tries to get on the assassin’s trail. Cosimo, who has long abandoned his dream of becoming an artist, then takes his father’s place as head of the bank and of the Signoria, where he needs to defend himself against the hostility of the noble families. When the Duke of Milan annexes the city of Lucca away from Florentine dominion, Cosimo must decide whether to side with the nobility, as Giovanni would have done, or to free himself from his father’s shadow!

    1. The series is shot in English, just dubbed in Italian :) They're selling it worldwide in English

    2. I didn't think that sounded like Dustin Hoffman. I mean really, he's a little dweepy doo and could never pull off that sexy accent :0)

    3. he never could! Since I'm not a fan of his acting, it's good news that he dies in the first episode and then Dicky Madden takes it all over... nom nom nom

    4. I absolutely adore him! And personality not just looks, he is one of those good disciplined, educated boys not a spoilt brat of Hollywood

  2. I like the premise for Medici, but the trailer not so much. Too many short, choppy segments. I just know it doesn't do justice the show or the actors.

  3. I hadn't heard about either of these. I always learn so much here. :) Not sure about the Stars Wars spinoff- but I am sure it will be popular with lots of fans.

    1. that is because the spy knows it all first! STAR WARS could be bad since they had to do emergency reshoots a week ago :)

  4. The Medicis are interesting. I haven't seen Hoffman in anything for a while. Great actor.

    1. I'm just nervous we won't get an English language version as soon as the Italian one :(

  5. Medici might be something I would like, but I'm with H.R. here. The teaser didn't do it much justice, but your description redeemed it for me.

    1. they say it might given that the studio brought them back last week to do emergency reshoots, apparently they did not like director's cut :)

  7. Star Wars....yawn.

    I want to see Medici, what a crazy, cunning and ambitious family. I don't dislike Hoffman, but he just doesn't seem right for the role. Not enough machismo for it. However, that doesn't put me off it.

    Dahlink, we is under both a flood watch and a tornado watch right now. I could either be swept away by flood waters or blown away by a tornado. Kind of like the two options available to the Brits tomorrow when they vote :0)

    1. But he does have something ebil and slimy and sneaky in him... purrfect for a banker :) He drops dead in the very first episode, so we won't have to suffer him much, after that it is just eight blissful episodes of Dicky Me Madden!

      Whaaaat! Hope you took all precautions! Did you cement your garden chairs to the ground? Oh, what will happen with clovers? We're all tropical here, just been outside to feed the beast and it is 40*C at 9am! Morning, dear, morning!

    2. That storm was dangerous, like a living monster, very scary. Nearly the whole town was awake as it was so loud. There were trees down in some parts of town and damage to buildings but on my street, we were okay. We've been without electricity till now. We've another storm just like it coming through in a few hours. At least it will be daylight so people can spot a tornado and call it in.

    3. Horrible! Hope your roof stays where it should. Why do people build wooden houses where there are tornadoes? We only have brick houses here. Hope you stay fine! Sounds ghastly! Meanwhile, we're well over 40*C here, just been outside and it is terrible. It's 30*C inside, in my bathroom and halls and stairs :(

  9. Richard Madden looks ravishing. At first glance, I can't help shaking off the red wedding I have seemed to associate with him. The Medicis have always been quite intriguing.The storyline you shared makes it even more interesting for me to want to delve deeper.
