Period musical news out of Brazil!!



Joaquina Lapinha will be played by Afro-Brazilian actress Isabel Fillardis.   Joaquina Lapinha is an opera singer and actress that captivated Dom João VI (King of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves from 1816 to 1822)
The casting choice looks great. I can't wait to see Isabel in the beautiful costumes I'm sure she'll have!

Pompeii Trailers

I've posted about the upcoming movie Pompeii previously. The film set during the 79 A.D. eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Stars Jessica Lucas and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje were cast in the period disaster film. The trailer is full of excitment and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (character name Atticus) can be seen at the 1:21 mark. No sign of Jessica Lucas yet.

Catch the trailer below!


I've found the second trailer! This trailer gives us much more goodies! Both Jessica Lucas (Ariadne) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Atticus) are seen numerous times throughout the trailer. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has a bigger role than Jessica Lucas and most of the trailer is him speaking. One line that stood out to me was spoken by Milo (Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame) to Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). He says "What ever is happening here, find freedom my friend." I wonder how close they will be in the film.
