Karl Urban en David Wenham speelden eerder samen in The Lord of the Rings en zullen binnenkort te zien zijn in nieuwe fantasy films.

Karl Urban, die eerder Éomer in The Lord of the Rings en Bones in Star Trek speelde, zal de rol van Gavin vertolken in de reboot van Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. De originele film werd in 1977 uitgebracht en combineerde live action met animatie. Het was de eerste Disney film die was opgenomen in Dolby Stereo geluid.

In de reboot, die 18 augustus 2016 in de bioscoop te zien zal zijn, zullen ook Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help, Jurassic World, The Village), Wes Bentley (Interstellar, The Hunger Games, American Beauty) en Robert Redford een rol spelen. De nieuwe film Pete’s Dragon zal worden opgenomen in Urban’s prachtige thuisland Nieuw-Zeeland en zal geen musical zijn. Dat belooft veel goeds.

Ook zijn er nieuwe namen bekend voor Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Orlando Bloom zal opnieuw te zien zijn als Will Turner en David Wenham (Faramir in The Lord of the Rings) heeft ook een rol bemachtigd in de vijfde Pirates film als het personage Scarfield. Het is nog wel even wachten tot de film uitkomt. Pas op 12 juli 2017 is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in de bioscopen te zien.

Karl Urban and David Wenham starred together in The Lord of the Rings and will playing in new fantasy movies soon.

Karl Urban, who played Éomer in The Lord of the Rings and Bones in Star Trek, will be taking on the role of Gavin in the reboot of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. The original movie was released in 1977 and combined live action with animation. It also was the first Disney feature film recorded in Dolby Stereo sound.

In the reboot, which will be released on 18th of August 2016, will also be playing Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help, Jurassic World, The Village), Wes Bentley (Interstellar, The Hunger Games, American Beauty) and Robert Redford. The new Pete’s Dragon will be shot in Urban’s magnificent home country New Zealand and won’t be a musical. Sounds very promising to me.

Also new names are known for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Orlando Bloom will be back as Will Turner and David Wenham (Faramir in The Lord of the Rings) caught himself a role as the character Scarfield. We still have to wait quite some time, since Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales won’t be released until the 12th of July 2017 in cinemas.

On May 27-31 the Game of Thrones exhibition is back in Amsterdam! Luckily, this time you can make a reservation for tickets (last time we had to wait over two hours to get inside). Also it looks like there will be more interactivity: you can choose a house and get a code to collect personalised content during the exhibition.  And of course there will be a lot of props and costumes. What I’m also looking forward to is “the unprecedented 4D virtual reality experience, powered by Oculus Rift, [which] lets you ride the winch elevator at Castle Black to the top of the Wall.” I can’t wait to sit on the iron throne again!
