 'THE BOMBING' WW2 MOVIE
POSTER WITH BRUCE WILLIS, ADRIEN BRODY, FAN BINGBING
After I remind you to scroll down and check out our Sunday spotlight on freshly ordered comedy pilots to which I added new trailers, we shall move
The movie arrives to cinemas this August!
onto two new international historical movie projects as Hollywood is mostly sleeping today. First, you can check out the first poster for World War II drama THE BOMBING coming from China with Bruce Willis and Adrien Brody joining Asian super stars Fan Bingbing, Ye Liu and Nicholas Tse!
Out this August in Chinese cinemas, the movie is set during World War II following five different Chinese people who fight their way through Japanese Air Force attacks to protect an important military machine in Chongqing, 1940. The movie was shot with a rather expensive $65 million budget! And did I tell you Mel Gibson is the artistic producer?



  'THE ROYAL EXCHANGE'
LAMBERT WILSON RULES SPAIN AS KING PHILIPPE
The movie was out in France last winter!
Meanwhile, over from France comes period set movie L'échange des princesses or THE ROYAL EXCHANGE starring Lambert Wilson! In 1721, the Regent of France, wanting to seal the peace with Spain, offers to the Spanish King, a marriage between their respective heirs: Louis XV, age 11, and Maria Anna Victoria, the 4 year old Spanish infanta. The Regent of France also offers to marry his daughter, Mademoiselle de Montpensier, 12, to the Prince of Asturias, the 14 year old heir apparent to the Spanish throne. Madrid responds
The movie is the adaptation of a Chantal Thomas book!
enthusiastically to both proposals, and the ceremonies are promptly organized. The exchange of the princesses is to take place with great pomp on a small island, in the river bordering the two countries. Everything has been done to expect the best of the children, but nothing will proceed as planned.

  2. "The Royal Exchange" looks good. And the issue of child brides/grooms is a timely one, even if it's not widespread anymore in our own culture.

    1. it does have a special depth when it is about royal brides... usually a desperate measure to save the nation or monarchy. Being married off to a prince is a rather small price to pay for a whole life in palaces, silk and gold.

    4. Nope, though I did try to talk Jason into it. I imagine none of the other Disney's compare to the one in Florida, which we adore. We went to the one in California last year and left 1/2 though the day. We just didn't love it there and from watching YouTubes of other people's vacations, we wouldn't love that one either.

      I just saw that Notre Dame has added a nighttime light show that runs 45 minutes, so I am going to try talking Jason into going to that. It would be about $80 total for the 4 of us, so I'm going to have to really sell myself on that one lol.

    5. If it is a lightshow, cannot it be seen outside? They will make a tourist attraction out of everything these days :)

    1. I have a feeling more and more actors will head to China as they're becoming the number one biggest movie market very quickly. I can't wait for the times when China will dictate what movies are shot in Hollywood :) as they have a much better taste than Americans :)
