As it’s Friday, a diversion is required. First, the trailer for the City of Bones movie (due out in August next year). We were a bit slow out of the starting gates, but here it is in all its splendid glory:
Clary? Simon? Jace? Hopefully you think they are fitting. The official site for the movie is here.
Peter Jackson’s posted an interesting clip about the inner workings of the Hobbit movie making:
If you want to read the book before December 13th, reserve a copy here.
Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell (love the dresses!)
I know it’s not Trailer Tuesday, but I’m continuing for fashion-movie-theme. I just watched the trailer for My Week with Marilyn. The movie’s about a week Marilyn Monroe spent being escorted around Britain by a young man named Clark (played by Eddie Redmayne). It’s set to be released soon, but won’t make it to NZ theatres until 2012. I think it’s going to be one of my style-movies of 2012, (a la Coco Avant Chanel or The King’s Speech). I love Marilyn Monroe – even if she led a very tragic life, she did invent glamour as we know it! And it stars both Michelle Williams (as Marilyn) and Emma Watson (as Lucy the wardrobe assistant) who have both become modern fashion icons – haven’t they?!
Forget Wills and Kate! Really, do: here’s the latest trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (due out at the movies sooner than you think). It’s a wedding special featurette, with comments from the actors (Taylor L, for example, looking dashing in plaid), and some dreamy scenes from the wedding of the year. Enjoy!
Soul Surfer is the true story of a teenage surf star who lost one of her arms in a shark attack. She made a huge comeback, re-teaching herself to surf one-armed. We have the book by the same name in the library, and you’ll be able to see it on the big screen shortly after Queen’s Birthday-ish sort of time. The trailer is here:
The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s weirder efforts, which is not a bad thing; it makes it great material for a movie, and here’s a trailer:
There’s Russell Brand, Djimon Hounsou, and Helen Mirren as Prospera (Prospero, but female – it’s been done before and it works very well, particularly with someone awesome like Helen Mirren). It’s out at the beginning of June. The official site is here.
Speaking of Shakespeare, Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston concludes the urban faerie trilogy started with Wondrous Strange (and featuring a few things Shakespearean). We will be getting the book soon, in the mean time here’s the trailer:
HarperTeen, the publishers, have a sneak peak here.
