I have never met anybody who didn’t like at least one of the Rocky movies, from it’s exciting training montages, it’s thrilling music that accompanied each scene, the brilliant choreographed fight scenes and great cast led by the enigmatic Sylvester Stallone, the Rocky movies played such a huge part of my childhood and I still annually watch the box set to this day – so being a big fan and hearing of another chapter being told I was certainly pretty excited – here’s the new CREED trailer, it looks impressive, humble and really centers itself on the films main character Adonis Johnson played by Michael B. Jordan next seen playing Johnny Storm in the Fantastic 4 reboot
Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend

“In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down”

Harry Potter – London Warner Bros Studio Tour
on a trip to London we decided to take in the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour, having read the books and watched the 8 movies (more than once) we wanted the chance to take a look inside of J.K Rowling’s magical world of castles, dragons, wizards and muggles….
as we entered the Warner Bros Lot and collected our tickets, the atmosphere was electric, we started to notice the fans arriving in Harry Potter attire, gowns from their favorite houses and costumes of some of their favorite characters this was going to be a fun night – after a small video presented by Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint featuring a behind the scenes look the Harry Potter universe the tour group were invited to start the tour and step foot inside the majestic Great Hall of Hogwarts – the scale and layout was exactly as you remembered it from the first movie and at the far end of the Hall stood all the teachers (mannequins of course) dressed accordingly…
the tour took us just over 3hrs in which time we visited so many of the famous haunts that feature in the movies including Hagrid’s Hut. Dumbeldore’s Office, the backlot that featured Privet Drive, the Knightbus, the Ford Anglia and a chance to sample a glass or two of Butterbeer (yum) then onto my favorite part of the tour the impressive Diagon Alley with it’s many shops including Gringotts, Ollivanders Wand Shop & Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour (now if only I could buy me an Owl & get me a magical wand?) – next up was the tours finale the incredible hand sculpted 1:24 scale construction of Hogwarts Castle that took over 80 artists to create and jee wiz it’s a site to behold….
even if Harry Potter is not your thing but you love your movies, then I would highly recommend this magnificent studio tour it’s worth every dollar! not only do you get to see movie sets, props & animatronic creatures but you will get a taster of what goes into the filmmaking process and trust me it’s a truly fascinating world…
