I have been exceptionally slack with this awesome blog over the last 6 months!! So much has happened in the entertainment world, so many movies seen that I promised reviews, so many trailers, photo op’s and gossip tid bits that I haven’t been keeping up to date on! Time to turn that around and get cracking again. It won’t be as crazy like when this blog first began, it will be more “when I see, hear or read” then you too shall “see, hear or read”. Apparently I still have my finger on the pulse of the latest happenings in Hollywood still!
So to keep in line with where we left off last time, I leave you with one of the many trailers that are out there now of my most anticipated movie of all time – Prometheus
Thanks to the fine folks at Collider for sourcing these pictures, of Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus, that were (or are to be featured) in Entertainment Weekly. Finally something more than a single image that was released in what feels like a billion years ago. I personally hope the movie looks a lot more darker & grittier, but I wouldn’t imagine pictures for a magazine to be overlly dark anyway so I’m not too worried. Also Michael Fassbenders head looks weirdly smooth and wrongly photoshopped. Still, YAY!!! Every tiny bit of news makes me that little wetter for this movie!
So it seems that Disney is rolling out another classic in 3D since The Lion King was such a success recently. Beauty & the Beast will be hitting theaters this January in 3D. Now part of me is really excited about this cinematic re-release and not because it’s in 3D. Beauty & the Beast is my favourite Disney movie of all time! I only recently purchased the dvd and have watched it quite a few times already… and by watch I mean sung and danced to it quite a few times. I may be 23 but when ‘Be Our Guest’ comes on, the child in me soars!
I would have been happy if this was re-released just in 2D for the fun of seeing it on the big screen, I don’t care for this whole “lets turn everything that we loved into 3D to make some more $$$!” that Hollywood production companies are starting to embrace (eg. Titanic in 3D). Though I think I’ll somehow manage to sit through 3D for this amazing classic Disney movie!

Ok so I seem to be pretty heavy on the trailers today & yesterday but that’s because I was so busier earlier in the week that I missed chucking them all up as they came out.
Anyway, Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror is another Snow White movie though unlike Snow White and the Huntsman, this one is a far more comedic fairy tale style. It’s good that both these movies, while built on the same story by the Brothers Grimm, are two completely different movies in style. Sure there’s going to be a lot of comparisons but judging by the trailer I suspect we’re in for two completely different fun rides! At least this movie doesn’t have anyone in it I can’t stand so that’s a step in the right direction.
Starring Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins as Snow White, Armie (Sexy) Hammer as the Prince, and to top off an awesome cast is Sean Bean and the always funny Nathan Lane.

I have heard people go on about how awesome The Hunger Games books are but I still had no idea what the story was about, well now I finally do thanks to the theatrical trailer that was release a couple of days ago and now I’m REALLY keen to get into it. The whole concept of this distopian future where youngin’s have to battle it out for survival seems right up my ally. Have a look at the trailer and see what I mean!

I’m not the biggest Katy Perry fan to be honest. I liked her first album before anyone else caught on so by the time the rest of the world was into her & blasting her songs on the radio, I was over it. Then came the likes of ‘California Girls’ which I hate, that song annoys me so much which is unusual since I love trashy pop songs. Then one day I heard ‘The One That Got Away’ on the radio and BAM I was back on the Katy Perry fan wagon. I pretty much skip the first 4 or 5 songs of the album Teenage Dream & get straight to ‘Peacock’ (which is the best dance track on the whole album). The rest of the album I quite enjoy, not as uptempo as the first half but better none the less.
Well I was quite surprised when Katy released the video for ‘The One That Got Away’ and I was actually moved by it. It’s a sad tale and not quite what I was expecting. Sure it pretty much looks like your watching Zooey Deschanel throughout the whole thing which made me want to see a video clip with them two in it, I don’t know why but I just do alright! So prepared to be a little saddened…or not.
