Baltasar Kormakur (CONTRABAND), who is currently directing mountain climbing drama EVEREST, will also helm Universal Pictures' VIKINGR epic movie saga based on the classic tales deriving from the legendary Icelandic Sagas, which document larger than life heroes, adventures and battles of early Nordic settlers, as well as daily life in the Viking age.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON IN 'THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY' MINI SERIES
Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson is also moving to the small screen since she's just taken the lead role in historical mini series THE CUSTOM OF THE COUNTRY which Sony Pictures TV will adapt from Edith Wharton's novel.  The 1913 novel tells the story of Undine Spragg, an ambitious but socially naive Midwestern girl who attempts to climb New York's social ladder with mixed results.

1ST 'POLDARK' TRAILER WITH
 LOTS OF NAKED AIDAN TURNER
You trailer treat for today (and I hope ITV doesn't take it down from YouTube before you see it, if they do, stay tuned and I'll post the trailer here when it appears again or see it here) is the first truly gorgeous one for ITV's new historical series POLDARK and the ladies will love it since lead star Aidan Turner is naked in it a lot!  The eight part series is set in 18th century Cornwall following the story of the rebellious Ross POLDARK as he returns from the American War of Independence to Cornwall, only to find that his old world is ruined: his father is dead, the family mine long since closed, his house wrecked and his sweetheart pledged to marry his cousin. But Ross finds that hope and love can be found when you are least expecting it in the wild but beautiful Cornish landscape. Scheduled to air next year, the series will also star Eleanor Tomlinson from WHITE QUEEN and JACK THE GIANT SLAYER.

Damn. Video for Poldark is no longer available. :(

But I'll go hunt it down! I must! It's Aidan Turner!

DEZMOND said...

try the red link I left in the post, that's the only one which is still up... until ITV find them :) I really despise ITV's marketing... they did the same with THE GREAT FIRE series which starts in a couple of weeks and has no marketing - the trailer for that one was also unavailable for embedding for almost a year... It is as if they don't want us to promote their programmes. I'm sick of such behaviour.... Starz does the same often.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Vikingr! Yay! I can't seem to get enough of Vikings for some reason.

Luanne G. Smith said...

Yeah, the link worked. Wow, he's got a great dark, brooding male look. The scenes look like they're right out of a romance novel. :D

Jeremy [Retro] said...

my girl is shining down us to day... may her days be filled with laughter and joy.

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

Hmm. I showed up too late for the trailer. I'll go and google it.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

I'm glad Scarlett is branching out. She is a talented actress. Congrats Cath J. on the new movie role. Dad's Army sounds like a different type of comedy. Those themes are usually the setting of Dramas.

DEZMOND said...

you guys should really read the posts.... there's a link with an existing trailer within the post

DEZMOND said...

I really loved the mix of blue and green colours that dominated the visuals in the trailer! I liked the tone of it

DEZMOND said...

VIKINGS THE NORTHMEN SAGA should be out soon too with Ryan Kwanten and Tom Hopper

DEZMOND said...

the scarlet one? :)

DEZMOND said...

it's a comedy because they're all hilarious in that squad, all lost cases whom the army wouldn't take ... Similar to famous sitcom ALO, ALO

Just Wendy said...

How I loved DAD'S ARMY growing up! And I think they've nailed the cast. Can't wait :)

POLDARK will be good. I remember the original. And for good measure, Aidan Turner will be naked a lot! :)

DEZMOND said...

I've never seen the original, I wish I have, this is the first time I hear about it, but I love the plot and agree that the cast is simply stellar :)
Yes, for POLDARK too :)

Donna Hosie said...

You had me at Aidan Turner - naked! I am so looking forward to Poldark.

mshatch said...

The Custom of the Country and Poldark both sound good to me' I like Scarlet and Aidan Turner isn't too hard on the eyes either.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Fabulous trailer for Poldark. Looks intriguing! All the more so with yummy Aidan. Too bad they didn't give us any nakedness in the preview ;)

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Feelin a bit rundown today, so all I can say is that while I'm a fan of Catherine, I'm not a fan of that dress. Sorry.

Travel Gourmande said...

Wow Scarlett on the small screen is something to definitely watch out for, especially after having just seen Lucy.

DRC said...

I don't mind remakes but I'm a bit dubious about Dad's Army. I'm a big fan of the original series having grown up with it and hope they don't ruin it. However, I'm rather excited about Poldark. Looks like more of my writing time will be lost to the TV next year :)

DEZMOND said...

it should be a fun one! Too bad it's not coming this year

DEZMOND said...

we do expect a lot from Aidan's series

DEZMOND said...

but there was a scene of him naked in the lake and also a shirtless scene too :)

DEZMOND said...

Oh, noes, I think it's positively magnificent!

DEZMOND said...

everybody is moving to the small screens these days

DEZMOND said...

with that cast I don't expect it to be ruined :)

Theresa Mahoney said...

Not nearly enough for my perverted mind lol ;)

Blue Grumpster said...

Now that's what I call one hell of a picture of my imaginary girlfriend Scarlett. I mean... now I don't even feel like reading your post. What are you doing to me?

DEZMOND said...

you should google that whole photo session of hers

DEZMOND said...

'tis never enough if you ask me

Kelly Polark said...

FINALLY! A POLARK movie!!!!!

Wait.. what? ;)

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

It looks like the feathers are coming for her...

Pat Tillett said...

I'm sorry, Scarlett Johansson is all I remember. Thanks!

Blue Grumpster said...

Thanks for the tip.

DEZMOND said...

be welcome

DEZMOND said...

not a movie, but new mini series

DEZMOND said...

any time

DEZMOND said...

I love the refined colours and the cut

Blue Grumpster said...

Dezzz... did Theresa say she has a perverted mind? I'm shocked.

Blue Grumpster said...

Mmmm you picked the best picture.

DEZMOND said...

'tis not hard when it comes to Scarlett, most of her pics are delightfully obscene :)

DEZMOND said...

that is what happens when you hang around with the bad company of you and me, Blue

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Naked in the lake - and I missed it. No the little red link is effed out. Thnx Darling Dezmond.

DEZMOND said...

ITV has been taking down the video from everywhere for a week now... will put the one here when they finally officially release it :(

Dixie@dcrelief said...

You're a charmer!!! Sorry I keep missing posts and have to double back. I think it has to do with my brain...shhh.
