Movie Trailer of the Day: As promised, Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof today unveiled the first full trailer for the highly anticipated “Alien prequel” Prometheus.
In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Movie Trailer of the Day: First official trailer for the Tim Burton-directed, Seth Grahame-Smith-penned big-screen adaption of cult TV show Dark Shadows.
In 1752, the Collins family sails from Liverpool, England to North America. The son, Barnabas (Johnny Depp), grows up to be a wealthy playboy in Collinsport, Maine and is the master of Collinwood Manor. He breaks the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), who turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. In 1972, Barnabas is accidentally freed from his coffin and returns to find his once-magnificent manor in ruin. It is occupied by dysfunctional Collins descendants and other residents, all of whom have secrets.
The film, which also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Johnny Lee Miller, Chloë Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, and Jackie Earle Haley, is set to open wide May 11th.
More Photos from my recent Roller Derby shoot.
I recently had the opportunity to do a marathon-style photo shoot with our brand new local Roller Derby Team “The Rocky Ricochets” Being new to the whole photo business I was quite excited as it was a wonderful way to practice my skills as well as meet new people and get my name out there so hopefully I can get a bit of word of mouth going on around town. It was a lot of fun, 10 women, 10 completely different personalities and endless ideas and poses made for one of the most interesting photoshoots so far. In the end they made up calendars and individual posters that were eventually sold for as a fundraiser for the new team which works well as free advertising for me. (Here’s hoping for a bit more work this summer.) I am pretty happy with the end product too, as are the girls on the team. Tell me what you think
It’s been quite a while since I last blogged (even though I promised more content at the beggining of the year) and the Oscars are upon us once again, so I thought I’d write a quick one with some oscar predictions:
What I want to win: Hugo
What will actually win: The Artist
I don’t really have a problem with either one winning as they are both incredibly good.
Who I want to win: Gary Oldman for “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Who will actually win: Jean Dujardin for “The Artist”
-Once again, both VERY deserving
Who I want to win: Viola Davis for “The Help”
Who Will actually win: Meryl Streep
It’s just Streeps time
Who I want to win: Nick Nolte for “The Warrior”
Who will actually win: Christopher Plummer
Who I want to win: Melissa McCarty for “Bridesmaids”
Who will actually win: Berenice Bejo
Bridesmaids is the highest grossing comedy of the year, which equal oscar poison apparently.
Who I want to win: The adventures of Tin Tin
Who will actually win: Kung Fu Panda 2
Why the F*** is Tin Tin not even nominated?
Who I want to win: Martin Scorsese
Who will actually win: If Scorsese doesn’t win, I’m gonna Choke somebody!
Best Original Song:
“Man or Muppet” for sure!
Best visual effects:
Planet of the Apes…it’s a travesty that Andy Serkis was not nominated for best supporting actor..what the hell is the academy thinking…take a risk every once in a while!
That’s about it…let’s see how my predictions pan out!
