ZHANG YIMOU'S EPIC 'THE GREAT WALL' OF CHINA TRAILER WITH MATT DAMON! AMAZON ORDERS MATT BOMER, LILY COLLINS' 'THE LAST TYCOON' INTO SERIES

 'THE LAST TYCOON
 ORDERED INTO AMAZON SERIES
As Amazon has just picked their small screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's THE LAST TYCOON into whole TV series, we have gorgeous first photos from it too! The cast is lead by Matt Bomer, Lily Collins and Kelsey Grammer.
Inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg, on whom the book’s protagonist Monroe Stahr was based THE LAST TYCOON centres on Stahr (Matt Bomer), Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s as he climbs to the height of power pitting him against his mentor and current head of the studio, the brawny, imposing, charming and vain Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer), a character based on Louis B. Mayer. Having come from the streets, Brady has no intention of returning to his misfortune, and is determined to make sure his studio is successful, no matter what personal morals he compromises.



 'THE GREAT WALL' TRAILER
ZHANG YIMOU'S EPIC MOVIE
Universal's has meanwhile released the first, rather epic, trailer for Zhang Yimou's THE GREAT WALL which sadly, instead of originally planned Henry Cavill has Matt Damon in the lead role looking terribly lost in it. The largest film ever shot in China should hit cinemas next February following an elite force making a last stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure.

    2. I'll take Matt Damon over anything his buddy Ben Affleck does any day. Matt doesn't bother me, but I don't rush to see any of the films he's in.

    3. I can tolerate Affleck because he's at least handsome :) but they both irritate me with their personalities, too pompous and full of themselves

    4. I agree. I hate to stereotype, but it seems that a lot of the people that are from Boston have that same kind of attitude. I have an online friend that's made some really arrogant comments on Facebook lately, and I think it just goes with the personalities of how those Boston people are.

  4. Sorry but I'm excited about Matt being in The Great Wall. Though I'll admit this amazing trailer has not put forward his best performance. Perk up Matt! You have it in you. I already plan to pay for streaming on Amazon Prime when The Man in the High Castle 2 is out but The Last Tycoon looks very good also. Their free trial was nice but when I couldn't watch most movies because of 'my geographical location'. There was no point in paying regularly for the service. Already have dear ol' Netflix anyway.

  5. I didn't know Amazon had their own TV series also! We just got an Alexa and signed up for Prime. I wonder if that's part of it?

    1. As far as me knows, Amazon is way older than Netflix :)

  6. I think Matt is cute, and he was on a talk show yesterday and they said he is rumored to be the nicest person in Hollywood.

  7. It's refreshing to find a 1930s setting in a TV series especially with gorgeous Matt Bomer. Great Wall looks like a movie not to miss.
