Orlando Bloom Shares Awesome Lord Of The Rings Reunion Pic

Having fallen just shy of the $3 billion plateau at the worldwide box office, and garnered critical acclaim from far and wide – not to mention a staggering thirty Academy Award nominations – Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy has certainly set the bar high for Amazon Studios’ small screen adaptation. Nevertheless, with Jennifer Salke overseeing the ten-figure operation, and John D. Payne and Patrick McKay officially tasked with bringing “the rich world” created by J.R.R. Tolkien to life, we fully expect the electronic commerce subsidiary to knock their interpretation right out of the park.

Unfortunately, the driving force behind New Line’s triumph, Peter Jackson – amongst other personnel from the WingNut production – reportedly will not be involved. Although, if it’s a Lord of the Rings reunion you’re looking for, Legolas has got you covered.

First Trailer for 'Green Book' with Viggo Mortensen & Mahershala Ali

"You never win with violence. You only win when you maintain your dignity." Universal has debuted an excellent first trailer for Green Book, an Amblin production directed by Peter Farrelly, making his solo directorial debut (with a drama) after directing numerous hit comedies with his brother Bobby. Green Book is about a bouncer at a New York nightclub who takes on a job as a pianist's chauffeur during a tour in the Deep South in the 1960s. The title is a reference to the "Negro Motorist Green Book", an annual guidebook for African-American roadtrippers, commonly referred to simply as the Green Book. Mahershala Ali stars as Don Shirley, with Viggo Mortensen as Tony Lip, and the cast includes Linda Cardellini, Don Stark, P.J. Byrne, Brian Stepanek, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Iqbal Theba. This looks fantastic, and I'm looking forward to seeing it mostly for Mortensen and Ali's relationship in here. Two of my favorite actors.
