"HITCHCOCK" TRAILER WITH ANTHONY HOPKINS, HELEN MIRREN! HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN, NICOLAS CAGE ARE "OUTCAST"! JULIANNE MOORE JOINS LIAM NEESON IN "NON STOP"! RALPH FIENNES, JUDE LAW, ADRIENBRODY, ED NORTON IN "THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL"

Ah, so here's an uber weird duo for you: "The Wrap" reports that Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen (is he still working?) are set to star
in OUTCAST. Budgeted at $25 million, the film is set in 10th Century China, and follows a warrior who attempts to redeem himself by saving a princess. It is currently not known who of the two of them will play the warrior and who will be the princess :) Meanwhile, Michael Curtis (MY WEEK WITH MARILYN) will do a movie adaptation of Edith Wharton's novel BUCCA- NEERS about five wealthy, ambitious American socialites who tire of trying to find suitable husbands in New York. So they head to England to take part in the London season and track down landed but impoverished gentlemen who would make likely matches.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
According to "Variety" Julianne Moore and DOWNTON ABBEY's Michelle Dockery have joined Liam Neeson in NON STOP, a $50 million air-flight action-thriller in which Neeson plays a federal air
  marshal who starts receiving text messages from someone claiming to be on the same flight, and who is threatening to kill its passengers. Racing against the clock, Neeson's character must identify and stop the killer. The same website reports about Ralph Fiennes, whom you will soon be watching in new James Bond movie, joining the cast of THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. Set in Europe, the film will, off course, deal with the guests and employees of the Hungarian hotel. Fiennes is set to play a character named M. Gustave, who serves as the hotel's perfectly composed concierge. The cast also includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldbloom, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe  and Jude Law. Angela Lansbury and Johnny Depp have, in the meantime, left the project.

"HITCHCOCK" TRAILER
Here's something that will most definitely win lots of Oscars next year: the first, long awaited, trailer for ensemble drama with elements of comedy HITCHCOCK. The movie brings a love story about one of the most influential film makers of
the last century, Alfred Hitchcock, and his wife and partner Alma Reville with whom he was married for more than 50 years until his death.  She also collaborated with him on some of his movies and was his editor and advisor. The film actually takes place during the making of Hitchcock's seminal movie PSYCHO and depicts both his professional and private problems which he had to overcome in order to shoot his legendary movie. The marvellous cast is lead by Anthony Hopkins in stunning portrayal of the famous director, British thespian Helen Mirren is outstanding in the role of his witty and ironic wife, Scarlett Johannson plays Hollywood diva Janet Leigh, Jessica Biel is Vera Miles, Toni Collette is Hitchcock's assistant Peggy Robertson, James D'Arcy is Anthony 
Perkins.... The film premiers at Los Angeles film festival on November 1st and then hits American cinemas later the same month. It is interesting that we have another film on the famous director coming out this year: THE GIRL which focuses on Hitchcock's (Toby Jones) work with Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller) who claims to be provoked and molested by the director during her career.

Hopkins is damn near unrecognizable!

DEZMOND said...

my thought exactly, Joshie!

Melanie said...

Hayden needs to just stop with the acting. Its not for him.

Now...Hitchcock looks just WOW! Even after I realized that was Anthony Hopkins, it still wasn't registering. The movie looks great! Must see!

Unknown said...

Wowza; I didn't recognise Hopkins as Hitchcock! That'll be a strange one to watch.

Hopkins looks brilliant and very weird!

DEZMOND said...

he should go back to modelling :) He is nice to look at, but not to watch.

DEZMOND said...

he is utterly unrecognisable!

DEZMOND said...

methinks Hitchcock was very much weird himself :)

Luanne G. Smith said...

Not sure what to think of the Hitchcock trailer. For one thing, the birds were screeching outside my rear window as I watched it. Very disturbing. Gave me a case of vertigo. Those psycho birds. :PP

Okie said...

Hitchcock! Looks great...and I agree, I didn't realize it was Hopkins until I saw the cast listing.

Hope it turns out as well as promised. :)

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

I think Julianne Moore is getting too old for shots like that...even with the wonders of photoshop.

Anonymous said...

I really want to watch Hitchcock!

Julianne Moore looks too shopped in that photo.

Elsie Amata said...

Third time here and every time my kids walk in and I can't listen to the trailer. I'll try again in the morning LOL

Jeremy [Retro] said...

that look is amazing... hitchcock, i had to look a couple of times.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Isn't it strange how 2 or more films about the same theme or person always seem to be released at the same time?

Melanie said...

Amen. He made watching a Star Wars movie hurt me. In more ways than one. But he is pretty. I would never mind seeing him in a magazine. Just not defiling the silver screen.

DEZMOND said...

ah, yes, he and that Portman wench were horrid beyond limits, never seen such horrid actors (not counting KStew and RPats) :)

DEZMOND said...

ah, sister, I've always claimed birds are evil creatures (not counting little owls and baby ducks :) And, before you ask, penguins are not birds, but naval spies :)

DEZMOND said...

fingers crossed, Okie :)

DEZMOND said...

she just loves posing nude, she was always like that, I think she's the actress with biggest number of nude pics :)

DEZMOND said...

she always has photos like that :)

DEZMOND said...

everybody deserves a half hour daily of being locked alone in a room with his HOLLYWOOD SPY :) Let them wait outside :)

DEZMOND said...

people seem to like it, Zombie!

DEZMOND said...

certainly is, Debs

Elsie Amata said...

Quitting ahead at the age of 60 - I love it! Hitchcock looks fantastic!! I can't even imagine what it must have been like to be married to him.

~ I'm off to unlock the door so the family can come back in the house =PPP

DEZMOND said...

he was a looney for sure, but it takes a looney to marry a looney as well :)

Yeepee! The kids can be fed finally :PPP

Unknown said...

Ooh I am in love with the Hitchcock pic! That trailer was incredible.

And with Mic Cage and Hden C, it's all bad. Love that snarky comment about the princess. You are so bad, sweetie. ;)

Unknown said...

LOL I couldn't even spell their names right!

DEZMOND said...

the one with the knife? :)
You know you like me semigood, semibad :)
Hope Hayden is the princess, darling, Cage's eyebrows wouldn't go with silk kimonos....

DEZMOND said...

Mic Cage LOL :)

Melanie said...

KStew and RPats should have a special category for their utter awfulness.

Southpaw said...

I just saw the trailer for Hitchcock last night. It look pretty good.

They did a good job making Scarlett Johannson look like Janet Leigh.

DEZMOND said...

too bad she doesn't have any of Janet's acting talent :)

DEZMOND said...

yep the "Lord, please, put us in oblivion" category :)

Gloria Baker said...

I loved Hitchock movies; but after this movie I heard terriblr things about him; he was so cruel with actress. Is true Dezz???

Gloria Baker said...

Aniway Anthony Hopkins is amazing!!

Novroz said...

excluding outcast with the terrible Haydesen (or something like that...too lazy to scroll to get his proper name)...the rest of the movies sound great, and have amazing casts.

I am most intrigued with Hitchcock. At first, I dont think Hopkins is perfect as him but after seeing the trailler...he isn't bad afterall.

DEZMOND said...

it is true, Gloria, he wasn't a nice man :(

DEZMOND said...

he is :)

DEZMOND said...

Cage is equally terrible :)

Novroz said...

Yeah...but he didn't play in one of my fav sci-fi movies, Star Wars.

That hayden guy ruined the movie.
