CHEESY TRAILER FOR JEAN CLAUDE VAN DAMME'S & DOLPH LUNDGREN'S "UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING"! "MERLIN'S" TOM HOPPER JOINS "BLACK SAILS" EPIC SHOW! ABC'S NEW FANTASY SHOW "A KINGDOM FAR AWAY"

Two TV news first, people: Michael Bay's new pirate show BLACK SAILS, which is to replace SPARTACUS saga which ends next year at Starz, has got its first cast member. Super dashing Tom Hopper (the pic is for my ladies :), whom my fellow epic show lovers will recognise as the brave Sir
  Percival from BBC's hit show MERLIN, will star in the story, which set 20 years before the events in Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Treasure Island", chronicles the adventures of fabled buccaneer Captain Flint and his men aboard the Walrus. According to "Deadline" Hopper will play Billy Bones, the first mate of The Walrus who is caught in the middle of the power struggle between Flint and his main dissenter Singleton. "Deadline" also reports that beside ONCE UPON A TIME, ABC is planning another fantasy series: A KINGDOM FAR AWAY will be a fantasy adventure about a quirky family surviving together on a lawless frontier, a magical land where monsters are real, and one young woman’s unlikely destiny is about to change their lives forever. It comes from the producers who are also preparing CLEOPATRA series for NBC.

UNIVERSAL SOLDIER DAY OF RECKONING TRAILER
Since it has been an extremely slow week in the film news department, the only clip I have for you today is something you might take with some nostalgia, remembering the action packed 90's: it's the trailer for 
UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING which hits cinemas this November and brings back two of the biggest action stars of that decade Dolph Lundgren and Jean Claude Van Damme. In the film, surviving Unisols Luc Deveraux and Andrew Scott battle anarchy to build a new order ruled by Unisols without government oversight. To accomplish this, they weed out the weak and constantly test their strongest warriors in brutal, life-and-death combat. It is interesting that both stars, alongside Scott Adkins who is also in the cast, star in another film which reunites action stars from the past - EXPENDABLES 2! The trailer is so cheesy, you could put it on your pizza.

  3. Well, that is some photo, Dez. LOL. I'm anxiously trying to figure out the psychological meaning behind covering up your junk with a photo of yourself. :)))

    1. well, the boy probably wanted for you to look him right into his eyes not other parts :PPP So he put his eyes down there... That would be my scientific theory

    2. Well, if that were the case he shouldn't have posed butt-naked. I was thinking maybe the hand model that Adam Levine used to cover his junk was already booked that day and they had to improvise with whatever was near to his rear. :PP

    3. well you cannot be not butt naked when under the shower :) And that hand on Adam was of his girlfriend top model, which means that Tom might be single and has no supporting hand on disposal :)

    1. I don't know if you noticed but most of those muscly action stars from the 80s and 90s look like freaks thanks to all the steroids they were taking before. Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Dolph, Van Damme... they all look like the victims of bad plastic surgery today.

  5. I had a giggle at UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING

    BLACK SAILS could be good though.

  7. So, I'm drinking my coffee and BAM! What do I see? Mr. Hopper. I must say, I almost choked on said coffee as I tried not to spit it all over my computer screen. Now, if that doesn't get your day going...

    And um, I have to say, anything Universal Soldier will never ever be on my list of things from the 90's I am nostalgic for....I can think of at least a million other things...at least!

    1. I'm proud of myself :) I think it is one of the best pics I've published so far :)

      Yep, no nostalgia for Unisol, it is just too big of a crapfest.

  8. I like the sound of a show that looks at Captain Flint's side of the coin. He sounds like a right meanie.

    1. I have a feeling it wasn't even done in Hollywood but somewhere else, seems too cheap.

  11. Thank you for that picture Dezzy - you know how to make a girl's day! I do find it a bit odd, like Luanne that he's using a picture of himself to cover up...but, I quickly dismissed it and went back to the abs =)))

    My goodness, what has happened to Jean Claude? *sigh* I close my eyes and remember the 80's fondly. Back when I was enamored by his sexy splits.

    1. the photographer from COSMOPOLITAN UK told him to pose like that :)

      Yep, as I've said in one of the above comments, all of the 90's action stars look like bad plastic surgery cases today. Which can be said for me as well LOL /criesfrombitterirony/

  12. OMG Dez!!! You can't do this to me this early in the morning at work!! Now I want me some Hopper...yum yum!!!

  14. I'm sorry for the lateness of this comment. It took me ten tries to get past Tom. Lordy, Lordy!!! Black Sails and A Kingdom Far Away sound wicked cool indeed. I'm looking forward to them.

    I'm going back to stare at Tom some more. ;P

  16. The Expendables 2 was pretty cheesy at times so I guess it makes sense that a trailer containing characters from it would also be cheesy?

    I'm kind of grasping at straws here.
