Fresh from making Pride and prejudice and zombies, former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has now been cast as the lead in another zombie movie called Patient Zero. Smith will star opposite Natalie Dormer.

Smith was the first Doctor to ever truly break America and has been busy since he left the show.

He is currently filming Terminator: Genisys and will appear in its two sequels alongside Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Trailer-Jurassic World

The first full trailer for Jurassic World Is here, two days earlier than expected. I guess Universal Pictures/Legendary Pictures wanted to keep a head of the Star Wars trailer.

I grew up on the original trilogy, so I’m excited for this.

Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015 in the US. As of yet, there isn’t an international release date.

Christoph Waltz to play Blofeld

IMG_3925.JPG

About a month ago it was rumoured that Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) was going to play the villain in Bond 24.
It was confirmed today that he will be playing the classic Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

The character has been held up by legal battles for decades. But, last year MGM settled a lawsuit with writer Kevin McClory regarding the rights to SPECTRE and the character of Blofeld.

He’s probably the most iconic villain in the Bond franchise, so it would make sense for MGM to want him back.
I love Christoph Waltz and I can’t wait to see what he does with the role.

Shooting starts in January and it will be released on November 6th, 2015. The movie is again directed by Sam Mendes.

New Birdman clip-Does she talk?

I am ridiculously excited for this movie. I’m a child of the late 80′s/early 90′s, so Michael Keaton will always be my Batman.
BiRDMAN or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) – famous for portraying an iconic superhero – as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself

BiRDMAN or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) swoops into UK cinemas 1 January 2015.

Peter Capaldi confirmed for series 9 and 10

IMG_3904.JPG

It’s no secret that I’ve not been a fan of the latest series of Doctor Who. I found the writing to be weak and repetitive.
I did however respond well to Peter Capaldi and I’m delighted to hear that he is set to reprise his role as the twelfth Doctor in the ninth and tenth series of Doctor Who.
I just hope the writing improves.

The news was confirmed by current showrunner Stephen Moffat, at the series 8 DVD launch.

At present there isn’t any information regarding Jenna Coleman’s involvement in series 9. I guess they’re making us wait until Christmas to find out.

I’m not alone in my disappointment with the series, a Twitter hashtag #sackmoffat was launched after the disappointing series finale.

However, those involved in the show seem happy with the end result.

Danny Cohen, controller of BBC One said:

“It’s been an outstanding debut series for Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who and I’m very grateful to Peter, Steven Moffat and everyone involved.”
The Doctor can next be seen on Christmas Day.

Clip-Doctor Who Christmas special

IMG_3882.JPG

I found the whole of series 8 to be a complete mess. So I’m approaching the Christmas special with a huge amount of trepidation. I’ll probably skip the broadcast and watch it on Boxing Day.

In this clip from the upcoming Christmas special Santa Claus and his elves (No, seriously) are talking to Clara when they get disturbed by the Doctor.

It was also announced this week that Steven Moffat will still act as show runner for series 9.

Fans of the series have recently started the hashtag #sackmoffat.

Star Wars title app

Yesterday Disney/Lucasfilm announced the title for the highly anticipated Episode VII.
I, along with many other people were less than impressed with the title.
Now, thanks to the verge you can now create your own title, with this fun app. I decided to create the fans worst nightmare ‘Jar-Jar strikes back’.
