Safe Haven

Who doesn't love a Nicholas Sparks movie???

Safe Haven is the next in line to hit the big screen and i can't wait!! If you haven't read the book do it, its brilliant!!! I think it was the first of his books that hasn't had me bawling my eyes out at the end of it but its still a great story, thoroughly recommend reading the book first as it is fantastic.

The story is about Katie (Julianne Hough) who has moved to a small town after escaping her abusive ex husband. All she wants do is survive and keep hidden from her ex and has no interest in connecting with anybody until she meets Alex (Josh Duhamel) which after a series of events pushes the two together even with Katie's reluctance to form personal ties. Alex is a local resident in the small town of Southport his wife died leaving him to raise his two kids alone but something draws him to Katie.

I really hope that the film sticks as close to the original story as possible because it is such a good story and from the trailer it looks like it is sticking to the story and i can't wait!

I love Julianne Hough as a performer especially in Footloose and Rock of Ages and i am really looking forward to seeing her do something different and more serious and Josh Duhamel what can i say, i love him!

The film is being directed by Lasse Hallstrom and also stars Cobie Smulders, David Lyons, Scott Porter and Cullen Moss.

Can't wait to see this! It's out in cinemas on the 14th February 2013 right in time for valentines day!

Star Wars

Disney have confirmed that they have bought Lucas Film and have already announce that a new Star Wars film is in the works and is hopefully going to be released in 2015.

The deal was worth around $4.05 billion and comes after George Lucas announced that he is retiring from film making and won't have anything to do with the Star Wars franchise.

The new films are set to be a sequel to the original films and are about the adventures of Luke Skywalker and is set for a 2015 release with films every 2 years after that. I have to say i am really excited about this, i love Star Wars and it will be interesting to see where the story is going to go and how it is going to develop. I also really hope that they are going to be better than the prequels because i felt slightly let down by them especially Attack of the Clones, But hopefully Disney will do a great job at developing the series.

There is also a TV show in the works based on the criminals and the gangs in the Star Wars universe . I can't wait!!
