I guess we shall have a trailer day today, since I have three brand new clips to show you. The Cold Winds Are Rising, that's the title of the fresh new trailer that HBO has aired this weekend for the
anxiously awaited second season of their super popular epic series GAME OF THRONES which should be broadcast next April in ten episodes. Beside the old characters from the Stark family
members, John Snow, khaleesi Daenerys and Cersei Lannister the new trailer introduces Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dilliane), the brother of the late King Robert (Mark Addy) who announces the
fight for the Iron Throne in a very dramatic way. The second season has just finished its 140 days shoot in Ireland and part of it was shot at Croatian seaside as well.

The second one is a super exciting trailer for upcoming adventure action G.I. JOE 2: RETALIATION. To hit cinemas in the middle of next year's summer season in July, the film will bring back
Channing Tatum from the successful first film alongside two action stars Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis, but this time, the film is not directed by marvelous Stephen Sommers but by Jon M. Chu and I guess it's not a good sign that he only directed musical films before like STEP UP 2 and 3, and Justin Bieber's NEVER SAY NEVER :)  But when it comes to the story, in the sequel, the G.I. Joe team faces off against Zartan, his accomplices, and the world leaders he has under his influence. Channing plays Captain Duke again, Ray Park is Snake Eyes, Adrianne Palicki is Lady Jaye, Arnold Vosloo is Zartan, Dwayne is Roadblock, while Willis appears as Joe Colton, the original G.I. Joe.
The third freshly released trailer is for next year's musical ROCK OF AGES and judging from the clip, it's something I will definitely
skip, although I did love Catherine Zeta Jones in it.  Playing a charming villain, she appears in the film next to Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige, Will Forte, and two young faces Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta in the story  which revolves around two people who meet at the Sunset Strip club ROCK OF AGES, fall in love and try to stay together amid '80s rock anthems. This also means that the film will be filled with famous rock songs from the 80's. If your ears can handle that music, and if your eyes can handle Tom Cruise rocking with a wig on his head :) The film hits cinemas next June.

  1. The trailer of Rock of Ages is not available anymore...

    Can't wait for more GOT!! I won't watch the trailersn though.


  2. I've added another video for ROCK OF AGES now :) Warner Bros has taken down the previous one :(

  3. Still have yet to watch GOT, will be getting the dvd set though. As for G.I. Joe I cringe at the thought of that, after the first one though, I don't know how much worse it could get.

  4. GOT was a nice show, but it had bad direction and bad organisation within episodes, and it wasn't very epic nor fantasy oriented, but it wasn't bad.

  5. I reading the comments wondering what's GOT, I didn't read anything about GOT. The the light kicked on. No HBO here so I have yet to see it.

  6. Big fan of the GOT books, the series is alright. Wondering who they will cast as Brienne of Tarth, she is ment to be ugly in the books but TV shows have a bad habbit of casting ugly characters as beautiful starlets.

  7. I haven't seen the first G.I. Joe movie, but I sort of liked that trailer for the second one. :)

    Still haven't seen GOT! Haven't read past the first book yet either. I'll probably be caught up with all the books in the series by the time the show comes out on DVD. :(

  8. Tom Cruise in a musical!? I think I'll pass.

  9. GI Joe looks over the top with lots of bing bam boom. Just how I like it! :)

    And of course soooo looking forward to Game of Thrones S2 :)

  10. I saw a Broadway production of Rock of Ages...and I'll skip the movie, too :)

  11. GOT definately. Love George RR Matins books. GI Joe, yes also (hey that suit it amazing). I'm with you on the Tom Cruise thing. Even if I was tripping on the finest of acids, the weed of all weeds and drunk on a bottle of Crown Royal, no way am I gonna find him believable as a rock star.

  12. I like those antlered crowns! Very paganish.

  13. Cannot wait for Game of Thrones. It is epic! GI Joe only appeals because of The Rock, but I will wait for DVD. And Tom Cruise looks surprising as an 80's rock star. Awesome trailer day, though.

  14. Dezzy - Channing Tatum is delicious! Not sure about ROCK OF AGES. And Game of Thrones is awesome. =D

  15. The last G.I. Joe wasn't that good so I'm not holding my breath for this one.

    I really need to get reading Game of Thrones though....

  16. Rock of Ages looks interesting! I have heard great things about Game of Thrones!

    I agree Tom Cruise is an interesting surprise....I see Axel Rose n' Brett Michaels blurred! ;D

    I love your pretty!

  17. I wish I for HBO so I can watch Game of Thrones. I know I’m really missing out. I bought the first two books not long ago - I won a B & N gift card - but I haven’t been able to read them yet. Won’t stop me from buying the other novels when I win some more gift cards . .

    I loved the first GI Joe movie, and I’m sure I’ll like this one too.


  18. ?? why can't i open the link?? error 404... want to vote for you !

  19. The hubby and I watched the Rock of Ages musical and we loved it! Can't wait for the movie version! :) As for Game of Thrones -- why oh why is April so far away???

  20. I can't wait for Game of Thrones!

  21. Game of Thrones and G.I. Joe 2...yes, Rock of!

  22. Yeay for GoT and Yeay for GI JOE!! The trailer is uber chic and camp!! Love it

  23. @JDC
    I'm not sure but I think she has already been cast, HOLLYWOOD SPY has been covering the casting process throughout the year, so use the search button in the right side bar to find previous casting posts :)

    those acronyms always give us headaches :)

    me too

    I think it might be better for you to watch the show first, because it might get old when you read the books :)

  24. @Lizzy
    that's the spirit :)

    yep, GI JOE is trashy as always,but I think that's the point :) I'm sorry that all of the best characters from the first part aren't returning :( I will miss Rachel Nichols and her Scarlett

    yep, Cruise is difficult to swallow even in intoxicated condition :) And I would love me one of GI JOE suits too, I think it covers big bellies wonderfully :)

    it's a cool crown, isn't it?

  25. @Melsy
    glad you liked the trailers, Hollywood is crazy releasing three of four trailers in the same day :(

    he is indeed, and so is Ray Park :)

    glad you like the snow :) It will be here only till the weekend, since I'm putting up Christmas decoration then :) But the flakes will come back in January

  26. @DWei
    you should, you should

    ah, it's good to have a stack of books, you will always have time to read them later on :)

    must be some error with Blogger :(

  27. @Rgers
    it should be nice

    it's in April so that you can fill the space with SPARTACUS VENGEANCE :)


    I thought you wouldn't like the GI JOE one :)

  28. cant wait to watch that from HBO :)

  29. Can't wait for the Game of Thrones next season to come out, I remember driving past the beach when they were doing some filming! Great to have it in my own backyard and I wish I applied to be an extra now!

  30. @Peeps
    it will be great :)

    Oohh, I wish you did it too, I would do an interview with you now if you did it ;)

  31. ohman! i can't wait for season 1 to come to netflix! i really enjoyed the first two books. haven't read the others yet, but i DO plan on it!
    Game of Thrones that is.
    the other two don't look all that hot to me, but we all have our druthers! :)
    thanks for all the trailers!

  32. SO PUMPED FOR GOT SEASON 2!!! I just posted some things I'm excited to see on my blog;) THE KING IN THE NORTH!!!

  33. I can hear the decision-makers as they were thinking through G.I. Joe 2.

    "Okay, we've change the director to somebody who produces kiddy-pop musicals, we've gotten The Rock involved...what else can we do?"

    "I know, let's get an out-of-date actor whose career is dead and whose acting ability died three films ago."

    "I don't know, do you think Bruce will do it?"


  34. @Vics
    I've no idea what druthers means but I like the sound of it :)

    it should be a nice second season, hopefully more dynamic and better directed than the slightly confusing first one.

    are you sure his acting ability died three films ago? Or was it ten films ago :)

  35. I grew up in the 80s and oddly enough, do not like the music. Sorry Rock of Ages...

  36. I'm waiting for that season. (:

  37. @Libby
    yep, we loved only pop from the 80's not the soft metal :)

    glad to hear that :)

  38. I want to puke all over 80's rock, but my husband loves it! "Pour some sugar on me!" He always sings that! Such a turn off! :)

  39. Is it just me or the link you have given to vote your blog is not working?
    Just wanted to see how the vote is going on. of see or not to see *sigh*

  40. it's working, but you have a link in the left sidebar too :)

  41. I loved watching ROCK OF AGES on the stage. Brutally awesome and bitching music. That trailer sucked.

  42. Dezmond, I've heard whispers that an official trailer for "The Hobbit" is due out on Christmas??? CAN YOU CONFIRM??!!!

  43. @Josh
    yep, not a nice trailer :)

    yes, the trailer will come with TINTIN :) Some people have already seen it, and they were sworn to secrecy, but they did say that it presents the character rather than action, and that it has some very truthfully portrayed scenes from the book ;)

  44. You have such a nice sense of humor! Love the trashy trailers, Dez~

  45. thanks, Lizzy, it is not easy having a sense of humor when English is not your native language :)
