Three things have got me very excited this week and yes, one of them is that the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is taking place in London tomorrow night.
Number 1: New trailer for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
The first thing that caught my eye about this movie is its terrific cast: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Tom Hardy. Oldman, Firth and Strong are three of my favourite actors and Hardy isn’t bad either.
A new teaser trailer for it has been released which you can watch on Empire’s website here. It looks brilliant. Full of suspense and tension.
• Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy will be released in UK cinemas Friday 16th September.
Number 2: Prometheus plot is released
Up until two months ago I wouldn’t have been that interested in this upcoming release. You see, it was only two months weeks ago that I watched Alien for the first time. I have since watched – and enjoyed – the other three films in the Alien franchise; Aliens, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection.
Prometheus was originally intended as a prequel to Alien but has since evolved to explore a more stand-alone mythology. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Noomi Rapace, it has been described as follows:
“Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.”
• Prometheus is expected to be released in UK cinemas 1st June 2012.
Number 3: The final Harry Potter instalment
Tomorrow night – Thursday 7th July – will see the worldwide premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in London. Even though it is the summer, the forecast is, of course, rain. However, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) revealed on ITV’s Daybreak that he felt the rain was very fitting: “I can imagine there will be a few showers and rain on the night. It wouldn’t be right if it wasn’t.”
I can’t wait to see the final movie though it will be bittersweet. The preceding seven movies were all brilliant and provided much enjoyment to adults and children alike. I have the first six movies in a box set and no doubt Part 1 and Part 2 will join them once released.
• Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will be released in UK cinemas Friday 15th July.
