Cineworld Secret Screening 9 – Possible Films

secret-screening-branded-2_zpszlrrdwja

The ninth secret screening date has been confirmed by Cineworld (website link) but it is not bookable yet. As standard now it has the 15 rating and 90 minutes as the running time, that doesn’t mean anything now though when they first started doing these screenings the time and rating used to be pretty much spot on, but they now have those down to try to trick everyone. We have now had so many different genre’s that it really could be pretty much any type of film.

Date: Monday 8th October 2018

Poster: Robin Hood (2018)

We have a new Robin Hood film coming out in November 2018. They have recently released the new character posters and I think you will agree that the cast is a pretty impressive line up but also quite strange as well.

Taron Egerton is leading the line up as Robin Hood and he is rather popular I like him as well, so it will be interesting to see which approach they take with this film. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves still holds a very special place in my heart (I don’t care what anyone says about that).

Sir Ridley Scott Exhibition

The Word, a national centre for the written word has just opened in South Shields over the weekend. A very impressive building with four levels, a library with many different sections for different ages. Interactive points, ICT amongst many other things. To go along with the opening they have decided to have an exhibition of most famous South Shields born film director Sir Ridley Scott. Obviously I was very quick to head across to check it out!

2010 Releases

I guess I have nothing better to do but thought I would have a look into the future of film and pick out some movies that I am looking forward to being released in 2010. At this very moment in time, my list of what I really want to see only contains 10 movies. I am sure as time goes by this will increase to so many more . . .

Miller Not Old Enough To Play Maid Marian

I am glad that Cate Blanchett has the part, I think she is a fantastic actress.

Sienna Miller lost the chance to play Robin Hood‘s sweetheart in Ridley Scott‘s new Medieval epic – because she’s too young.

The actress had been attached to The Sheriff of Nottingham for over a year but when the project went through a rewrite, it quickly became clear she was no longer the right fit – and Cate Blanchett became the new leading lady.

Miller tells WENN, “The script has been evolving and changing and it often happens in films. They’ve been trying to make this for a couple of years and they rewrote the script and they needed someone who was older.

“There’s a husband who has been away at war for 10 years and he comes back, so it’s just not feasible for me to play her. Cate Blanchett is doing it.”

Miller insists there have been many other cast changes – but the media refuses to focus on them.

She adds, “The media doesn’t have to make quite as much a meal of it as they do when it happens to me. I’m sure it will be a wonderful project but this is not an absolutely shocking thing to happen in the movie industry when scripts evolve and casts change.

“Other people have changed in that cast, but the media just won’t document it. I would obviously love to work with Ridley and still I hope to in the future.”
