FIRST LOOK AT
CHEVALIER COSTUME DRAMA
A bunch of first looks for you today starting with the first photo of Kelvin Harrison in CHEVALIER movie which will premiere at Toronto Film Festival. He portrays Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the son of a slave and a plantation owner, who became popular at the French court as a composer. Lucy Boynton plays Marie Antoinette with Samara Weaving in the lead female role. The film will hit theatres August 23rd.
EMILY BRONTE BIOPIC
Also premiering in Toronto is Frances O'Connor's biopic on Emily Bronte EMILY with Emma Mackey playing the famous writer of Wuthering Heights. Also starring Oliver Jackson Cohen, it imagines the transformative, exhilarating, and uplifting journey to womanhood of a rebel and a misfit, one of the world's most famous, enigmatic, and provocative writers who died too soon at the age of 30.
NAUTILUS DISNEY SERIES
We also have the first sneaky peek into Disney Plus adventure series NAUTILUS showing Shazad Latif at the sets as famous Captain Nemo from Jules Verne's legendary novel. Jacob Collins Levy and Richard E. Grant also star in this origin story of Captain Nemo and his legendary submarine. An Indian prince robbed of his birthright and family, a prisoner of the East India Company and a man bent on revenge against the forces which have taken everything from him, Nemo set sail with his ragtag crew on board the awe-inspiring vessel, battling foes and discovering magical underwater worlds.
THE NEW LOOK DRAMA
We also stole first pics from the set of Apple TV Plus' new period set fashion series THE NEW LOOK with Ben Mendelsohn as Dior and Maisie Williams as Catherine Dior. The series also starring Emily Mortimer, Claes Bang and John Malkovich, explores the rise of fashion designer Christian Dior, as he dethrones Coco Chanel and helps return spirit and life to the world with his iconic imprint of beauty and influence. Juliette Binoche plays famous French fashion designer Coco Chanel.
I don't have Disney Plus or else I might check that out.ReplyDelete
Disney is defo not your kind of thing.Delete
Too many movies or series in services I don't touch. Can't believe Maisie Williams is playing adult women. For me, she'll always be little Arya StarkReplyDelete
I cannot believe she is getting roles given how terrible she is. Which goes for her older GOT sister too. Rose Leslie as well. Come to think of it, GOT had a terrible female cast.Delete
And you forgot Emilia Clark. Thank G-d she’s out of the pictures. The ones that were good were the more mature actresses Lena Heady, Michelle Farley and of course Dame Diana Rigg. I’ll rest my case on Natalie because I think she’s done better roles in The Tudors and she was excellent in City of Angels, an otherwise forgettable pile of muck. Maisie and Sophie had their ten minutes in GOT and were effective enough. but Maisie has grown ugly, and Sophie couldn’t even make it in the Marvel universe. And Rose Leslie and her clogged-nose voice...as pathetic as her husbandDelete
I have never liked Dormer, but I will keep quiet as her hubby David Oakes might read us LOL and we do not want to anger our god Oakes! Maisie has this new butch image with shortly cropped hairdos, really terrible. House of Dragon's lead that plays the princess is also one of them Emma Corrin idiotic types, she was so fugly at the premiere I almost puked. She is THEY THEM methinks.Delete
Ohhh this They/Them. You’ve seen how ridiculous Demi Lovato is going back to “she/her” because “I feel more feminine”. Really? Why didn’t you want to be feminine before? Emma Corrin looks sanatorium mad, is an awful actress/actor/actcreature. Which princess in House of Dragon? Emma DÁrcy? Another reason not to watch that series. I’m not encouraging idiots.Delete
I’m rewatching The Borgias and couldn’t believe Juan was David Oakes. He looked like a little boy, a hint of freckles on his nose, even his voice was childish. And to think he’s grown into this adorable, sexy, romantic man. Can’t say anything against Dormer. People would think I’m envious. And I am!
Demi is so hideous almost atrociously so. Yes, Emma Darcy, but don't google her pictures as you will have nightmares.Delete
I am watching Borgia, meanwhile, second season right now. Cesare is crazy gorgeous there, but vile as he was in real life. Meanwhile, Lucretia is fugly there unlike Holiday Grainger who is dropdead gorgeous.
Oakes is the god we worship and bow to and he knows it.
Francois Arnaud was delicious and sweet looking in The Borgias, but in Borgia, Mark Ryder looked like Michelangelo’s David. He was very dastardly but then he went through the unspeakable ( I still recoil from that rape scene) The Isolda creature looked and acted like a slut. Whereas, in the first season, Holiday looked and acted like a real 12 years old. You now that Emma “Them” Corrin is playing Lady Chatterley? I mean that is one sexy lustful character. Holiday, of course, played her like a romantic sensual ingenue (I loved that version with Richard Madden), but how could a woman that denies her femininity portray female passion?Delete
It is beyond atrocious, most of today's castings are hideous and nonsensical.Delete
Mark Ryder also had that horrid scene in the second season when the princess of one of the Italian cities comes to his bedchamber to offer him marriage and political aliance and some sex too and he rips of her dress and then burns a sign into her forehead with the scorching poking iron. He was an animal. Hot, but animal. My fave is when he held famous countess Sforza under siege in her fortress. I don't know if that was depicted in the series, but I've always liked the Red Countess Sforza.
Lots to look forward to, but for me it's The New Look. I hope there is a lot of fun fashion in that one!ReplyDelete
Finger crossed, but he was more elegant than fun.Delete
I'm very interested in Emily. I meant to look up why she died so young the last time you mentioned this but never did. I'm off to do that now.ReplyDelete
Happy search! They were such a dull family no wonder some of them died young.Delete
I almost wish that I did not look that up! I'm almost in tears. Of all those siblings, by the time Emily passed, only two were left. What shocked me most was the death of the brother! He was poisoned by contaminated water running off of a graveyard???Delete
He did? I thought he died a drunkard that he was.Delete
There were two brothers. The younger one died of a drug overdose. The mother even died young! The only one who lived a full life was the father, but I would think he's the one that was cursed having to watch all of his family perish.Delete
I do not remember the other one, I only remember the one with whom they had terrible problems because he was problematic and spoilt.Delete
