PERIOD SET WEDNESDAY: 'THE HAPPY PRINCE' OSCAR WILDE CLIP & POSTER WITH RUPERT EVERETT, COLIN MORGAN, COLIN FIRTH, EMILY WATSON! 'THE PAGAN KING' 13TH CENTURY LATVIAN EPIC MOVIE TRAILER AND POSTER

   1ST 'THE HAPPY PRINCE' CLIP
 WITH RUPERT EVERETT AS OSCAR WILDE & COLIN MORGAN
Rupert Everett also directs the movie
While we are waiting for a real trailer, you can check out a visually beautiful clip from Rupert Everett's THE HAPPY PRINCE about Oscar Wilde which also features delightful Colin Morgan as his lover, famous poet Alfred Bosie and gorgeous Edwin Thomas as Robbie Ross. Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and Colin Firth also star in the untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humour. The film is out in May in Germany and June in UK.



   'THE PAGAN KING' TRAILER
IN THE 13TH CENTURY LATVIA!
The movie has been shot in (rather bad) English :)
Sticking to the period set movie topic today, the spy will also present you with the trailer and a poster for a movie from a country I've never shown you anything before - Latvia! Take a look at their historical epic THE PAGAN KING (Nameja gredzens) set in the mediaeval past of those cold regions of Europe! On his deathbed, the reigning king bestows power to an unexpected heir who must find strength within himself to unite his people against the violent crusades which threaten their freedom. The legend of the Ring of Namejs takes place in the 13th Century in Semigallia, where the young Namejs (Edvin Endre) becomes the new king after the death of his regent Viesturs (Egons Dombrovskis).

  1. Robbie Ross was a Canadian, you know. His father was or had been Governor General of Canada, I believe. He was indeed the only true friend who stood by Oscar Wilde's side through this downfall and death.

    1. I've never heard of him before, but I really like the actor that plays him.

  2. The Happy Prince looks a little slow from the clip. I'll await the longer to make a full judgement.

    The Pagan King did pique my interest. We may add that to our watch list.
