1ST TRAILER FOR "THE LOFT" WITH KARL URBAN, WENTWORTH MILLER & JAMES MARSDEN! CATHERINE ZETA JONES JOINS JUDE LAW & CHANNING TATUM IN "THE SIDE EFFECTS"! EVANGELINE LILY ON HER ELVEN GUARD ROLE IN "THE HOBBIT"!

As you all know THE HOBBIT is the most anticipated film this year, if not this decade, and one of the actresses who will appear in the famous saga next to Cate Blanchett, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Ian McKellen and Martin Freeman is Evangeline Lily who will play Elven girl Tauriel in both
AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY and THERE AND BACK AGAIN. Speaking this week to "Entertainment Weekly" she revealed that the shooting of the both films will last two years in total, with the stars coming in and out of New Zealand numerous times during that period. She also said that her character, a Mirkwood elf Tauriel, will be a dangerous warrior and the head of the Elven guard who uses a bow and arrow and two daggers as her primary weapons. She is apparently very lethal. She will appear in the first film near the end, but will have a longer part in the second film, a part which apparently became bigger after Peter Jackson was impressed with Lily's work.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
I've been mentioning Catherine Zeta Jones a lot these days, and I will do it again since she has just joined THE SIDE EFFECTS,the
film I've also mentioned last week, in which Blake Lively plays a woman who gets addicted to prescription drugs out of fear that her husband (Channing Tatum) will be released from prison soon. Jude Law will play the woman's new therapist, while Catherine Zeta Jones will play another doctor in the Steven Soderbergh's film. At the same time, another project I've mentioned this week has a new cast member: according to "MovieWeb" Ron Livingston has joined THE CONJURING, the supernatural thriller in which Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will play two demonologists who investigate the case of a couple (Livingston plays the husband) who lives in a farmhouse with evil spirits and other similar creatures.

And your trailer treat for today is an exclusive clip from the upcoming thriller THE LOFT which has a cast picked straight out of my wildest dreams - three of my favourite boys - Karl Urban (who in a strange and ironic twist of fate had replaced my fourth most favourite actor Patrick Wilson, LOL), Wentworth Miller and James Marsden.
The trailer is in English, but has foreign subtitles, it's the only one released so far, but you will still enjoy it. The story of the film, shot in Belgium (since it is an English language remake of the Belgian hit film), follows five friends who share a loft for their extramarital affairs but begin to question one another after the body of an unknown woman is found in the property. The lovely ladies of the female part of the cast include Rhona Mitra (from UNDERWORLD 3), Isabel Lucas (played Goddess Athena in this winter's epic blockbuster IMMORTALS) and Rachael Taylor (from the unsuccessful CHARLIE'S ANGEL remake show).
PS Have you noticed that HOLLYWOOD SPY has crossed the 1,100,000th visitor? You know me loves you and there's nothing you can do about it :)

  2. First first, everyone else is worst!..lol

    Like Wentworth Miller in the few things he's been in, so might be a good one. Can't go wrong with the Hobbit either, I'm sure both will be good.

  8. It's a real problem in Tolkien's work that there are so few female characters. So Hollywood has to make them up to compensate for that.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it's true, but there are also a lot of those who are against putting female characters in the film since they don't exist in the book. I think the film would be sad without Galadriel and Tauriel. Hobbits were deadly boring in LOTR, and without females THE HOBBIT would be boring just with them as the only stars.

  9. Wow That is an incredible amount of views! Congrats!

  10. That's a lot of people!
    Congratulations!

  11. Catherine is looking scrumptious these days! You know until I read Debra's comment, I never thought about there being so few prominent female characters in Tolkien's books. I don't think he was actively being sexist though. The Hobbit story was a bedtime story for his children. But I see what she means, in today's world that does stand out a bit and it does matter. That said, I can't wait for the movies and do hope as a hardcore fan that they don't change so much that they ruin the story for me.

    1. it's true, but we shall keep our fingers crossed, and hope that Jackson will be good as he was with LOTR and not with KING KONG and other of his crappy business.

  23. Oooh, the loft, it's like a conspiracy/suspense movie for yuppies.

    Teary eyed yuppie: "The poor man just wants to bring hot random teenage girls back to his expensive loft and cheat on his wife, why won't the killers just LET HIM???"

    (In all seriousness, it does look pretty cool)
