SANTIAGO CABRERA IS MERLIN, LIAM GARRIGAN KING ARTHUR IN 'TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT'? 'PANFILOV'S 28' HEROIC WW2 RUSSIAN EPIC TRAILER! EMMA THOMPSON IN 'CHILDREN ACT'

'TRANSFORMERS: LAST KNIGHT
 CASTS MERLIN & KING ARTHUR?
Now here's a surprising twist: rumour has it that Santiago Cabrera and Liam Garrigan are set to go medieval again after just being cast inTRANSFORMERS 5: THE LAST KNIGHT. Cabrera who played Lancelot in BBC's Merlin series and Aramis in their Musketeers is allegedly set to play Merlin here, while Garrigan who already played King Arthur in Once Upon a Time ABC show is set to take the crown again! They join previously announced Laura Haddock, who herself isn't a stranger to costume drama since she starred in Da Vinci's Demons, alongside Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Tyrese Gibson and Mark Wahlberg. It isn't much known about the plot of the movie which is already filming, but it is expected that it will be set both in modern times and the times of Camelot, with Optimus Prime coming back to Earth trying to find some valuable artefact, obviously connected with King Arthur and his wizard Merlin! Michael Bay's movie should be released next June!


EMMA THOMPSON TO 
LEAD 'THE CHILDREN ACT'
Deadline reports today that British thespian Emma Thompson is in negotiations to star in Richard Eyre's THE CHILDREN ACT as judge Fiona Maye who is so involved with her cases that she hears that it often strains her marriage. But one case is of particular difficultly — that of a 17 year old boy who is suffering from leukemia and does not want to be forced to have possible life saving blood transfusions because it goes against his religion. The case causes internal turmoil for the wise and compassionate judge who must choose between the bright boy’s right to choose and the possibility of a future. It will be an adaptation of Ian McEwan's book!

'PANFILOV'S 28' TRAILER
 RUSSIA'S HEROIC WW2 SOLDIERS
And a marvellous trailer comes today from a movie which tells of Russia's glorious heroic past! PANFILOV'S 28, set to open in Russian cinemas this November, follows Panifilov's 28, a group of twenty eight soldiers of the Red Army's 316th Rifle Division, under the command of General Ivan Panfilov, that stopped the advance on Moscow of a column of 54 Nazi tanks of the 11th Panzer Division for several days. Though armed only with standard issue infantry rifles and machine guns, all useless against tanks, and with wholly inadequate anti-tank grenades and anti-tank rifles, they fight tirelessly and defiantly, with uncommon bravery and unwavering dedication, to protect Moscow and their Motherland.

    1. though we can't really imagine Optimus in medieval ages... maybe as an armoured vehicle?

  2. Canadian courts face that dilemma in "The Children's Act" all the time of Jehovah's Witness parents/kids who refuse blood transfusions. If the kid is too young to make the decision, the court usually orders the transfusion. If the kid is a mature teen, the court will let the kid decide.

  3. I just recently saw him as King Arthur in Once Upon a Time. I didn't like him too much, especially as he was evil in that version.

  4. I think 17 would be plenty old enough to decide if you want the treatment or not. Now, younger kids who rely on their parents to keep them safe and healthy, I am glad that the courts step in to help. I agree though. Nothing pisses me off more than religious fanaticism.

    1. I think people are stupid till the age of 30 at least, and most of them for life...

    2. Sadly, that's a pretty accurate statement.

    3. I've seen people older than 50 who are so painfully stupid that I wanted to bang my head against the wall... and I don't mean just that decrepit goblin Hilary or that vile rat Madlen Albright.... some of my previous employers come to mind...

    4. Working in retail you find all ages and classes of people to be extremely frackin' stupid! Poor Mariah is a cashier at a grocery store and every day she gets in the car and we say "Tell us about the stupid people you had to wait on today." Even on a short shift, she always has a story.

  6. There's no heroism in war, just victims.

    1. so, millions of people who die defending their city instead of fleeing it isn't heroism? Soldiers who defend their country with their bare chests against Nazi tanks isn't heroism? A small country like mine, for example, standing against the Nazis, even though all other countries around us had joined them, isn't heroism?

    2. War tends to be subjective. It's like being in a roomful of people and asking them "Who is a bad person?" Yes, we all hate war and yet people will never learn.

    3. some things are never subjective, making everything relative erases the efforts of those who try to fight against evil
