Now while our cinemas are swamped with vampires, werewolves, Mel Gibson and other scary creatures :) here's a real refreshment: Kimberly Peirce ("Boys Don't Cry") will direct the adaptation of WICKED LOVELY a book by Melissa Marr about a young girl who has the ability to see a hidden fairy world. The story follows Aislinn, a girl who has always seen faeries but followed her grandmother's rules to ignore them at all costs. But suddenly the faeries are stalking her and she's forced to confront them and their world that she's feared all her life. There's also Keenan, a Summer King, who has been searching for his Summer Queen for nine centuries and now he has his eyes on Aislinn.

"Movieweb" has posted yesterday the first pictures of Chris Evans as Steve Rodgers at the set of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and as you can see Chris, who had a smoking body before as well, got even more muscly, ripped and brawny for the role. He is now a true super hero. Coming to cinemas next summer, the film also stars Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper...
