Ah, nothing like Sir Ian McKellan’s number 2 playing mind games and torturing Jim Caviezel in the remake of the classic show.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I think this looks like it could be quite good. Out on 15th November on AMC.
Hasn’t Rover got big!

Check out this footage of The Prisoner remake. It stars James Caviezel as Number 6 and Sir Ian McKellan as 2. Have a watch and let me know what you think. It is quite a bit different from the original series but nice and bizarre nonetheless.

Stranded in a remote Iranian village, a French journalist (James Caviezel) is approached by Zahra (Shohreh Aghdashloo), a woman who has a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya (Mozhan Marnò), and the bloody circumstances of her death the day before…
As the journalist turns on his tape recorder, Zahra takes us back to the beginning of her story which involves Soraya’s husband, the local phony mullah, and a town all too easily led down a path of deceit, coercion, and hysteria. The women, stripped of all rights and without recourse, nobly confront the overwhelming desires of corrupt men who use and abuse their authority to condemn Soraya, an innocent but inconvenient wife, to an unjust and torturous death.
A shocking and true drama, it exposes the dark power of mob rule, uncivil law, and the utter lack of human rights for women. The last and only hope for some measure of justice lies in the hands of the journalist who must escape with the story — and his life — so the world will know.
Directed by Cyrus Nowrasteh.

Finally we have a trailer for the new TV show, The Prisoner. It’s a remake of the Patrick Macgoohan classic and this one stars Jim Caviezel and Sir Ian McKellan.
It doesn’t really show much so I’m not sure how surreal and bizarre it will be. Will there be a Rover in it? Let me know your thoughts on it.

Dougray Scott, Brian Cox, Joely Richardson and Eddie Izzard with a gun in this poster for the BBC’s remake of The Day of The Triffids. I personally think it is a bit of a poor poster design, but I am looking forward to seeing the show.
I do like the poster for AMC’s The Prisoner
series. Jim Caviezel is Number 6 and Ian McKellan is Number 2.

As an age old battle rages amongst the stars, Kainan’s ship burns brightly as it crashes into the Nordic coast. As his space craft comes to rest in the fjords of ancient Norway, it’s with dismay that Kainan realizes that he wasn’t the only survivor. A second passenger, a Moorwen also emerges from the wreckage. A Fierce and animal-like creature, the Moorwen is intent on causing harm to those it perceives have wronged it. As the Moorwen kills everything in its path, Kainan must work together with the Vikings to destroy the beast before it destroys them all. Starring James Caviezel, Sophia Myles, Jack Huston, John Hurt, and Ron Perlman.
I’ve been looking forward to this film since I first heard about it ages ago and the synopsis above sounds cool. Kind of like Beowulf meets Predator. Vikings and aliens are cool concepts in their own right and when they meet it should be shouted from the rooftops. Therefore, I have to ask the question why is The Weinstein Co once again hiding away one of their films by not really pushing it and releasing it in the nothing movie month of January?
Also if you knew nothing about the film and saw the new poster (above) you would still know nothing about it apart from the fact it could be the second coming of Jesus Christ or just his giant head about to crush Earth. Honestly, where are the vikings? Where is the big alien beastie? Come on poster people, play the game!

Outlander begins when a space craft crashes into the majestic fjords of ancient Norway and into the time of the Vikings. From the wreckage emerge two bitter enemies: a soldier from another world – Kainan – and a bloodthirsty creature known as the Moorwen. Man and monster both seeking revenge for violence committed against them. As the Moorwen ravages the Viking world, killing everything in its path, Kainan forms an unlikely alliance with the primitive but fierce warriors. Combining his advanced technology with ancient Iron Age weapons, the hero leads a desperate attempt to kill the monster – before it destroys them all.

Sir Ian McKellen plays #2 in the remake of The Prisoner. Here is what he has to say on the look of The Village, the prison that holds #6, James Caviezel
As we come to the end of our Namibian shoot, there is hardly a corner of Swakopmund that hasn’t been used in the retelling of The Prisoner.
The fictional Village Shop that sells only maps is actually a corner emporium where you can buy for real anything second-hand, from old postcards to washing machines and used clothes.
The Palais Two, where my character (and his family) lives, is in reality the biggest hotel in town and once the railway station. We had intended to shoot scenes in the hotel forecourt doubling as Two’s gardens but our schedule changed and these will now happen in the Cape Town studios.
My first glimpse of The Village before rehearsals was a striking photo of the A-frame holiday chalets on the outskirts of town, which are too regimented for comfort. In reality they are just as unprepossessing, not made any less so by a huge poster of Two declaring the opening of “More Village”, an image that would be a telling advert for the series if hung aloft on Sunset Boulevard.
The quirky Solar Café, where momentous events propel the story along, is actually an imported set but looks so in keeping with Swakopmund that some entrepreneurial local asked to buy it as a souvenir of filming. As it has now been destroyed during the action, that wasn’t possible.
Tourism to Swakopmund may never be the same again. There have been a number of international feature films shot here recently against the desert landscape. Apart from The Prisoner, there is rumoured to be a Bollywood musical larking among the dunes, but we have had neither sight nor sound of it. As The Prisoner has been shooting in the town as much as the sand, viewers of the series may well want to check out for themselves the realities of The Village location, much as Portmerion attracted fans of the original series.
After completing other films I have kept (or been given) mementoes of the sets. I have the panels from the underground assembly room in Richard III. I have the keys from Bag End and Gandalf’s sword. I have James Whale’s easel and paintbrushes — though these are the genuine articles, bought on Ebay. What to retain from The Prisoner? Two’s tie-pin? one of the Village logo’s? a bottle of black pills from the safe?
You might tell from my posts that I am no spoiler, so revelations about plot and character are few. All I can promise is that hidden within this dispatch is mention of something so vital to understanding what The Village is all about, I’m surprised that I’ve been allowed to mention it….
There are lots of other cool things to see on The Prisoner blog. I’m just curious to see what Rover will look like.

Here is a tiny clip from the Viking v Predator mashup movie, Outlander, starring Jim Cavaziel. Seems like he didn’t get messed around enough in The Passion and wanted more of that kind of treatment. Hmm, his character in this comes from the heavens to destroy the evil beast…is this actually The Passion of the Christ 2: Sexual Tyrannosaurus?
