A message from Eve Myles 

IMG_5136.PNG

Yesterday Eve Myles met Dewi, a 3-year old with CP (Cerebral Palsy), his amazing family are trying to raise money to get him to USA for surgery. Bellow is a message from Eve.  

I met the most brave and beautiful family today. Their story absolutely broke my heart. Please take a few minutes to read this.

Dewi is a 3 year old boy with Cerebral Palsy from Pontypridd South Wales. Just like any other 3 year old he dreams of being able to jump, run and ride a bike without pain. Unfortunately Dewi has diaplegia spacicity cerebral palsy. His parents perform daily physio therapy and he has treatment once a week from a physiotherapist but now his parents have discovered an operation called SDR which would help but with limited availability in the UK he’ll need to go to the USA for treatment.
The challenge now is to raise £60,000 to make this happen. Dewi’s brave parents and 8 year old sister (pictured above with young Dewi) are doing what they can to raise money.

Please donate to help this family raise funds for an operation in the USA to help him. Anything you can give will be so gratefully received and can make such a difference.

Go to http://www.justgiving.com/DewisDreams and give what you can and tell your friends. Follow them on twitter @dewisdreams and help spread the word.

Thank you so much!

Love Eve Myles

Supergirl-First look

IMG_5034.JPG

The American networks are currently having a thing called “upfronts” from what I can gather, it’s where they show extended trailers, or sizzle reels to would-be advertisers.

The Network, CBS have released an extended trailer for their new Supergirl TV show. The six and a half minute trailer, shows us what we can expect from the series. 

I hope Supergirl is a genre defining female superhero that kicks of a new wave. I fear we’re getting Supergirl and the City, or Ugly Betty:The Super years.

Trailer-Minions

IMG_5033.PNG

The Despicable Me movies are popular films in my house, the kids always reach for them on a cold rainy day. So, we’re all eagerly awaiting the first feature length spin-off, Minions.

Here’s the official synopsis:

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.

Minions opens in the UK on June 26th

A new Indiana Jones movie is on the horizon

IMG_4982.JPG

We’ve known for a while that Disney also obtained the rights to Indiana Jones when they bought the rights to Star Wars. With rumours of reboots and Chris Pratt being cast as the man in the hat, it was only a matter of time before a new movie was announced.  Today, in an interview with Vanity Fair Kathleen Kennedy (Lucasfilm president) confirmed that a new movie is on the horizon. 

She said

“In buying the company, Disney also got rights, for better or worse, to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise. Kennedy confirmed rumours that another Indy movie ‘will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.’”

I’ve been expecting this news since Disney bought Lucasfilm. I’m excited at the prospect of a reboot. I’m also exited about the possibility of a new Willow movie.

Josh Trank walks from Star Wars spin-off

IMG_4952.JPG

Rumours were flying around after Josh Trank failed to appear at Star Wars celebration, at the panel he was meant to attend with the Rogue One director, Gareth Edwards. Trank’s people said he had the flu and was regrettably unable to attend. But it now seems there was more to that story. 

Disney/Lucasfilm have confirmed that Trank is no longer involved in the second Star Wars Anthology (that’s spin-off to us laymen’s).

The studio said:

“It was a privilege to collaborate with Josh. We are grateful for the energy and love of Star Wars that he brought to the process, and we wish him all the best”.

Personally, I was excited to see what Trank would bring to the Star Wars universe and I’m sad to see him leave. 

Trank added:

“After a year of having the incredible honour of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. I’ve put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and I know deep down in my heart that I want to pursue some creative opportunities. That said, the Star Wars universe has always been one of my biggest influences, and I couldn’t be more excited to witness its future alongside my millions of fellow Star Wars fans. I want to thank my friends Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Simon Kinberg, and everyone at Lucasfilm and Disney for the amazing opportunity to have been a part of this. May the Force be with you all.”
