Although we might not watch the film, since director Joe Wright (ATONEMENT) has put that horrid Keira Knightley in the lead role, we must admit his film adaptation of famous ANNA KARENINA is having the rest of the cast filled with great names we love. You already know that the lead male roles were given to Jude Law (as Mr. Karenin) and Aaron Johnson (As Vronsky), but now, they will also have the company of amazing Matthew MacFadyen who will play count Oblonski, Anna's brother. Young Saoirse Ronan will play Kitty, the sister of Oblonski's wife. I so wanna watch this, but how will I? with Knightley in the lead role? :(((

According to "MovieWeb" Relativity Media is planning a sf film called ECSTASIA, in which the intriguing story is set in an alternate universe where love doesn't exist, although people can pay for a costly procedure known as "commitment". ECSTASIA is described as "an emotional Viagra", and without it, couples will feel no romantic connection. The story will center on a couple who can no longer afford the "commitment" procedure, so they have to take extreme measures to prolong their relationship.

Check out the new poster for hilarious comedy BAD TEACHER which premieres June 24th. In the film, Cameron Diaz plays
Elizabeth, a foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate teacher. She drinks, she gets high, and she can't wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she's dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) - competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy. When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.


  1. I feel your pain. I loathe Keira Knightly and am so very disappointed that she is Anna. She already ruined Elizabeth Bennett and now she's about to ruin another well-loved literary character. However, that male cast is outstanding. Still, it will not be enough to entice me to hand over my money.

    I so cannot wait to see Bad Teacher. I crack up every time I watch the trailers.

  2. I didn't know that Cameron Diaz had such a filthy whore inside of her...I FREAKING LOVE IT! I will be watching this movie sober for full effect!

  3. Dezz - Jude Law looks angry like he missed the bus. :P

  4. Cameron Diaz is such a great actress and I laugh every time I watch that preview! I can't wait for that movie to come out!

  5. Aww, I love Jason Segel and will watch whatever he's in! With you on KK, though. Ugh. :(

  6. Love this trailer for Bad Teacher. And that's an awesome pic of Jude Law :)

  7. Bad Teacher hopefully will be a blast.

  8. Happy Monday Dezzy, I am back, so you can call off the search party and stand down the national guard. I had a great Holiday, but it is back to the grind now.

    How are you?

    Bad Teacher should be OK I reckon.


  9. @Melsy
    yep, she ruined too many possibly good films with her atrocious acting and presence. ATONEMENT would be one of the examples.
    BAD TEACHER really is super hilarious, even for me who don't usually go for brutal or physical humor :)

    he he ... yep, Cameron really is naughty, naughty, naughty in this one. I can't think of anyone else who could fit the role better than her :)

  10. @Luanne
    angry? I don't see it :) He is just eying us seductively from the picture taken for Burberry or Dunhill adds, I'm not sure which one.

    it really is extremely funny, and I also find the plump actress who is playing her colleague, extremely funny :)Justin Timberlake is also amazing as always.

    glad you agree with me on KK, I love that we are not using her name :)

  11. @Lyndy
    glad you like the trailer and Jude's picture :) I have the whole photo shoot with Jude :) in my archive.

    it will be :)

    search party? National guard? Don't flatter yourself :) I've sent only Major, Private and Kowalski after you,but even they aborted the mission as soon as they came upon the first sardine shop :PPPP
    Nice to have you back :)

  12. Umm, thank you for the Matthew McFadden pict. I've been a fan since he played Mr Darcy!

  13. Havin' a great Monday. Two outta three to see. Anna Karenina, not so much. Actually not at all :)

  14. Anna Karenina is such a classic. I wish they had a better main character. However, I do like Matthew MacFadyen a lot. I would watch just to see him.

  15. Ectasia sounds like a rather strange concept. I guess I would be curious to see where they take this story. I do like alternate universe stories when done well.

    Tossing It Out

  16. emotional Viagra? That sounds quite amusing :)

  17. I <3 Tolstoy. I named one of my cats after Anna Karenina. I call her Nini for short. The other is named after that Dr. Quin, Medicine Woman show. lol

    I fixed my stupid commenting. Yay! You have to uncheck the stupid 'remember me' box. Now I feel really lame.

  18. @Vics
    I love how we are not saying her name :))
    You're into Segal, didn't know that :PPP

    be welcome, we love MacFadyen a lot too :)

    I thought you would be into Tolstoy :)and Russian classics. I spent my childhood reading those in tones.

  19. @Clarissa
    yep, that's exactly my emotion too, Clarissa :(

    I love alternate reality too and sf in general as you know, and this story sounds rather intriguing, I love films on strange futuristic societies.

    that's what you noticed? :))

    he he ... I love naming cats after literary characters too :) My cat was named Zelda after Scott. Fitzgeralds crazy wife

  20. Wow, Bad Teacher....
    This is Avalon and it still wont allow me to sign in, oh well....

  21. Have you tried to uncheck the STAY LOGGED IN or REMEMBER ME button when you open Blogger? MPax above says it helped her with commenting problem.

  22. WOW, Aaron, Matthew and Jude in a movie by Joe Wright?? I think ANNA KARENINA has become one of my top anticipated 2012 movies!! I love that photo of Jude in that leather jacket, Dezzy.

  23. yes, I know that you like that whole photo shoot with Jude, I think I used more than five or six pictures from it so far.

  24. I laugh at the trailers every time too! I know this movie is going to be hilarious. I can’t wait to rent this movie and watch in my home theater. Blockbuster gets most new releases before Netflix and Redbox so I’ll definitely be checking with them. Since we’re on the topic, you can get Blockbuster for free for three months if you switch to DISH. If you want more info, you can check out; I work for DISH so I know all about it.

  25. Do we get blockubsters for free for whole year after this free advertisement from you?
