"Rise of the Planet of the Apes"- Trailer *1

Hey guys got another movie trailer to show you. This time it's something that's kind of the basis for my book "The Animan Kingdom" and it is from one of the greatest sci-fi movie franchises of all time and this one is about the rise of the planet of the apes. Although this time Weta Digital the award winning effects team behind "Lord of the Rings", "King Kong" and "Avatar" are bringing the apes to life through the art of performance capture in this incredible origin story. The movie also has an incredible cast; James Franco ("The Spider-Man Trilogy" and "127 Hours"), Frieda Pinto ("Slumdog Millionaire"), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from the "Harry Potter Saga"), Brian Cox ("X2" and "The Bourne Supremacy") and Andy Serkis aka Gollum who brings life to Caesar the first ape. Here's the trailer for the movie which opens on August 5th.

"The Hobbit" Production Diary *1

Hey guys, to all those Tolkien fans out there you're probably aware of some very exciting news and that is we film goers are about to make a return journey to Middle Earth in the highly anticipated prequel to "The Lord of the Rings Trilogy" and the one that started it all, "The Hobbit". At the moment the first ever production diary has been released which gives you a sneak peak of everything and I gotta tell it's so exciting and just seeing Peter Jackson taking on board this incredible project once again, a prequel to three of the most successful films ever made and seeing some of the cast like Ian McKellen back as Gandalf and Andy Serkis back as Gollum and seeing some of the familiar sets such as Bag End and Rivendell it really is like visiting a place that you haven't been to for a very long time. Well for me anyway. But I'll stop talking now and let Mr. Peter Jackson himself take you back to Middle Earth without giving too much away for those who haven't read the book, which you must do by the way. Before you see the movie which comes out Christmas 2012 in two parts.
