MINDBLOWING TRAILER FOR "PRIEST" WITH PAUL BETTANY. SAM WORTHINGTON IS "DAN DARE". JEREMY RENNER IS HAWKEYE IN "THE AVENGERS"

Are you ready for a busy Saturday over at ComicCon in San Diego? Here we go: last winter, I told you that Sam Worthington might play pilot of the future in "Dan Dare", and now it's official. Sf adventure "Dan Dare" will follow a gallant chief pilot of the Interplanet Space Fleet who goes on exciting adventures set on planets around galaxy.

Another rumor that I mentioned before has been confirmed yesterday at ComicCon: Joss Whedon has revealed that Jeremy Renner from "The Hurt Locker" will really play Hawkeye in "The Avengers". As you remember Josh Holloway, Nathan Fillion and Justin Theroux were among actors mentioned as possible actors for the role. Hawkeye is the purple archer, a trained athlete and tactician who is very skilled with the bow and arrows.


A movie which has excited a lot of you in recent months, sf vampire epic "Priest" finally has a trailer. Starring Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Stephen Moyer, M├Ądchen Amick, Christopher Plummer ... "Priest" is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire and follows a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. Check out the mind blowing trailer.

Hi Dez,
Priest looks fantastic.

Hope Worthington has taken some acting lessons recently. He needs to break out of his stereotype and really show some range.

I'm really glad that they're finally heard my advise, Renner is the perfect actor for Hawkeye.

DEZMOND said...

@Ricky
glad you like it, Ricks ;)

@Alex
he needs to work on his facial expressions.

@Jaccsy
ah, I'm quite the opposite, I think he is too macho and non-refined for this particular role.

Jaccstev said...

At least to go with my idea :) not yours Dezmy ;PP

vic caswell said...

DEZMOND said...

@Jaccsy

Well I love, love Sam Worthington. Even though he does the SAME yell in all his movies, it's okay with me. He's intense and I like him ALOT!!! Priest - eek, those are not vampires. What are those things? Where are the sparkles??? LOL I tease becuz I must. The trailer looks promising.

Arlee Bird said...

Priest looks kind of like Mad Max meets Book of Eli all mixed up with vampires. Looks like it might be good. So I wonder what's going to come to replace the popularity of zombies and vampires?

DEZMOND said...

@Shells
well, what can I tell you, not all vampires are dashing romantic gentlemen :)) And Samworthy really does have a trade mark scream. Wonder whether he's using it privately as well :)))

@Arlee
ah, Lee, I'm hoping that a day will come when the in-thing will be fairies and elven beings.

Those aren't the sexy vampires I've grown accustomed to.

Avalon said...

Sadly, Sony took off the Priest's trailer from You-Tube.

DEZMOND said...

@Missed Periods
ah, sexy is such a subjective thing :))))))Welcome to HOLLYWOOD SPY,Missy Pery ;)

@Avalon
I've put a new one, Avalon, hope that one will stay active longer :(

Ella said...

Paul Bettany fan; I couldn't get clip to work...but still sounds great! Interesting cast~

Sarah Ahiers said...

oooh i really like Jeremy Renner. I approve.

DEZMOND said...

@Ellie
I checked the trailer, it works, try again :)

@Falen
I'm sure he'll appreciate your approval :)

I hope they wont make a boring Dan Dare. Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and Dan dare all come from a another time, different from our present. As simple as those characters are, I don't think modern srceenwriters/producers understand them, or share their sense of adventure.


Priest looks good. :) I'm really surprised. I expected a contemporary horror/dark_fantasy, set in our present time, but this looks like Mad Max meets Vampires. :)

Eric said...

Great look for Priest, and awesome choice for Hawkeye. Oh hey, I noticed my blog over on the side here. Thanks dude! I'm glad you're a fan, but you truly honor me with that placement :)

DEZMOND said...

@Bels
I totally agree with you that not many directors would be able to get that classic sense of adventure that we've loved in FLASH GORDON, SKY CAPTAIN and DAN DARE. And I don't think that modern audience gets it either. Today's audience mostly wants morbid and dark action without any charm, glamour and witty humor. :((
Yep, we finally get to see PRIEST trailer, you remember how long we've waited for it? :)

@Eric
your blog has been in my sidebar for almost a month now :) My sidebar blogroll is reserved for people who often visit HOLLYWOOD SPY and who return the love ;)

Marko Belsak said...

Too bad there is no sequel for Sky Captain. :( But it's like we said, modern world doesn't have that "adventure never stops" attitude.

DEZMOND said...

Yes, I'm still shocked that SKY CAPTAIN didn't do well in USA even though it was such a cool movie with great actors (except Gwyneth), mind blowing visuals, stunning costumes, amazing actions, a true classic if you ask me, and I've seen it at least five times so far :)
