Movie News for The Comrade Society
Contains - Undertaking Betty; Kingdom of Heaven; George and the Dragon; Sk8r Boi; The Chronicles of Narnia- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; Seed of Chucky.|
Well, this certainly intrigues me. Undertaking Betty has a quirky story, interesting cast *Alfred Molina, Chris Walken, Brenda Blethyn*, and frankly, I'm interested.
I should be extremely ashamed of myself, but I'm going to see the Crusades epic, Kingdom of Heaven, *which the very sound of makes me cring* simply because of the cast involved
Cast (in credits order)
Orlando Bloom .... Balian of Ibelin
Eva Green .... Sybilla
Liam Neeson .... Godfrey of Ibelin
Jeremy Irons .... Tiberias
rest of cast listed alphabetically
Shane Attwooll .... Reynald's Templar Knight
Tim Barlow .... Old Guard
Marton Csokas .... Guy de Lusignan
Samira Draa .... Sybilla's maidservant
Eriq Ebouaney .... Firuz
Khaled El Nabaoui
Jon Finch .... Patriarch of Jerusalem
Michael Fitzgerald .... Humphrey
Brendan Gleeson .... Reynald
Ghassan Massoud .... Saladin
Nasser Memarzia .... Muslim Grandee
Edward Norton .... King Baldwin IV
Michael Shaeffer .... Young sergeant
Alexander Siddig .... Imad
David Thewlis .... Hospitaller
Ulrich Thomsen .... Templar master
Velibor Topic .... Almaric
I'm also ashamed to say that I'm probably going to see this George and the Dragon rubbish, simply because the subject is of interest to me *
and Herman's Hermits did a song based on it.* More info can be found here.
Stop this. Stop this before it's too late. Please.
Purported Cast of The Chronicles of Narnia- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, which my beloved Tinseltown will undoubtably rename "CON - LWW". Bastards. Anyway, Tilda Swinton to play the White Witch *inspired. I always rather liked Tilda Swinton.*, James McAvoy to play Mr. Tumnus *he seems a bit YOUNG*, and Dawn French as the voice of Mrs. Beaver. See what happens when you're in a Harry Potter movie? People come knocking at your door to do other fantasy/epics. *see Kingdom of Heaven for an example*
Too bad this isn't true for Billy Boyd in LOTR, whose next project is Seed of Chucky, with another LOTR alumni, Brad Dourif. Oh, I should have foreseen this happening... Irony is bitter, is it not?
