'THE MYSTERY OF DRAGON SEAL'
JOURNEY TO CHINA POSTERS
Dragon's will fly this September in Russia and China
I must admit I almost forgot about this one, thought it premiered long time ago, but it is actually arriving into Russian and Chinese cinemas this September! THE MYSTERY OF DRAGON SEAL: JOURNEY TO CHINA is a sort of sequel to 2014 Russian fantasy blockbuster Viy, and is directed by Oleg Stepchenko who makes a movie about once in five to ten years. We remember his previous hit Forbidden Empire. This one stars two action superstars from the 90's Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng and it cost about whooping $50 million to make!
Jackie Chan has a role in the comedy adventure

THE STORY
The English traveller Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng) receives from tzar Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China. The cartographer will unexpectedly face a lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese Princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters, and even the king of all dragons, the Dragon King. What could be more dangerous than meeting eye-to-eye with Viy, except doing it again? What would be stronger this time, a staunch scepticism of the scientist or the old black magic that has seized power of Eastern lands?

WARNER MEDIA STREAMING SERVICE ORDERS DUNE: THE SISTERHOOD BENE GESSERIT SF SERIES! BBC TO TURN AGATHA CHRISTIE'S THE PALE HORSE INTO MINI SERIES! OBLIVION SONG MOVIE ADAPTATION

'DUNE: THE SISTERHOOD' SERIES
THE BENE GESSERIT TV SAGA
Bene Gesserit will be the stars of the series
Two book adaptations for you today! While we've lost all interest in the new DUNE movie adaptation due to the rather uninspired casting, the good news is that Warner Media's new streaming service will make TV series out of Frank Herbert's famous sf saga!
Denis Villeneuve (who is also helming the above mentioned movie) is set to direct DUNE: THE SISTERHOOD, which will be set in the same universe, but will be told through the eyes of a mysterious order of women known as the Bene Gesserit. Given extraordinary abilities by their mastery of the body and the mind, the Bene Gesserit expertly weave through the feudal politics and intrigue of The Imperium, pursuing plans of their own that will ultimately lead them to the enigmatic planet Arrakis, known to its inhabitants as Dune. Herbert wrote six novels about the intergalactic Imperium ruled by Padishah Emperor.

'THE PALE HORSE' SET AS
BBC'S NEW AGATHA CHRISTIE MINI
The Pale Horse is one of Christie's strangest stories
Across the pond, BBC has announced their latest Agatha Christie adaptation: her THE PALE HORSE will be turned into a two part series by BBC and Mammoth Screen. The foreboding novel was written in 1961. When a mysterious list of names is found in the shoe of a dead woman, one of those named, Mark Easterbrook, begins an investigation into how and why his name came to be there. He is drawn to THE PALE HORSE, the home of a trio of rumoured witches in the tiny village of Much Deeping. Word has it that the witches can do away with wealthy relatives using the dark arts alone, but as the bodies mount up Mark is certain there has to be a rational explanation. And who could possibly want him dead? Amazon Prime will have worldwide rights.

'OBLIVION SONG' GETS
BIG SCREEN SF ADAPTATION
Oblivion Song will be turned into a movie
Universal Pictures will, meanwhile, turn Robert Kirkman's comic book OBLIVION SONG into a science fiction movie. Written by The Walking Dead writer and illustrated by Lorenzo De Felici, it takes place one decade after 300,000 residents of Philadelphia suddenly were trapped in Oblivion. Frantic recovery efforts were launched by the government, but, after a few futile years, they were abandoned. Nathan Cole, however, hasn’t given up. He risks his life again and again trying to save those lost souls in Oblivion’s apocalyptic hellscape – but is that the real reason he can’t resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

FROZEN 2 trailer does not show much of the story other than Snow Queen Elsa fighting against the sea with her ice and then being joined by her sister Princess Anna and her boyfriend Kristoff  at the start of a brand new adventure which will be more epic in scope and will again feature crazy snowman Olaf and reindeer Sven. She must cross into the enchanted northern lands to unravel the mystery behind her magical powers. The trailer also reveals tons of breathtaking new landscapes and magical scenes, like the one with magical underwater horse. It also seems that Elsa will be rocking some seriously wintery stylish outfits in the sequel as well proving her status as one of Disney's most popular princesses. The adventure that will take them far away from Arendelle will again feature a brand new hit song from Robert and Kristen Lopez.
