GOSSIP - Clamoroso al Cibali, Sofia Vergara è juventina!
Per la gioia di Conte e Bonucci, Sofia Vergara di "Modern Family" ha fatto coming out a Miami presentandosi con la nuova divisa invernale della Juventus. Già i tifosi bianconeri non vedono l'ora di vedere Giovinco e Giaccherini sfilare lungo le fasce con la nuova tenuta che, c'è da scommetterlo, farà restare a bocca aperta gli avversari. Non è dato di sapere, al momento, se insieme alla nuova divisa siano compresi i Rayban d'ordinanza e lo yacht da tardo impero Moggi...

PICCOLO GRANDE SCHERMO - Troppe Star per JJ! Abrams rinuncia al nuovo film della saga di "Star Wars" per amor di Spock...(dice lui)

Articolo tratto da "Hollywood Reporter"

Lifelong Star Wars fan J.J. Abrams will remain just that.
The writer-director-producer, who has pumped blood into the second iteration of the Mission: Impossible series and fully revived Star Trek for the big screen, told Empire magazine that while he met with new series producer Kathleen Kennedy about involvement in Star Wars: Episode VII, he decided against hopping aboard.The writer-director-producer, who has pumped blood into the second iteration of the Mission: Impossible series and fully revived Star Trek for the big screen, told Empire magazine that while he met with new series producer Kathleen Kennedy about involvement in Star Wars: Episode VII, he decided against hopping aboard.
"There were the very early conversations, and I quickly said that, because of my loyalty to Star Trek and also just being a fan, I wouldn't even want to be involved in the next version of those things," he told the magazine. "I declined any involvement very early on. I'd rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them."
Abrams has said that while he grew up as a major Star Wars fan, he was not particularly in love with Star Trek, which made it easier to reboot the saga -- which now stars Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock -- for the 21st century.
His next Trek movie, Star Trek Into Darkness, is set to hit theaters in June. The first film, released in 2009, took in $385 million worldwide.
As for Star Wars, it has been announced that Toy Story 3 scribe  Michael Arndt, who won an Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine, will write Episode VII, while Lawrence Kasdan -- who wrote The Empire Strikes Back -- and Simon Kinberg will write new installments, as well.

NEWS - Supermarionation no more! Addio Gerry Anderson, ideatore di "UFO", "Spazio 1999" e "Thunderbirds"

Articolo tratto da "The Guardian"

Gerry Anderson, best known as the creator of Thunderbirds, has died at the age of 83. The film and television producer, whose credits also included the puppet shows Captain Scarlet and Joe 90 had suffered for several years with mixed dementia and died in his sleep, his son announced on Wednesday.
The news was announced on his son Jamie Anderson's website. He wrote: "I'm very sad to announce the death of my father, Thunderbirds creator, Gerry Anderson. He died peacefully in his sleep at midday today (26th December 2013), having suffered with mixed dementia for the past few years. He was 83."
He requested that any fans wishing to make donations in honour of his father should contribute to the Alzheimer's Society.
His website also included a tribute written by his fan club, known as Fanderson. Nick Williams, chairman of the club, said: "To those who met him Gerry was a quiet, unassuming but determined man. His desire to make the best films he could drove him and his talented teams to innovate, take risks, and do everything necessary to produce quite inspirational works. Gerry's legacy is that he inspired so many people and continues to bring so much joy to so many millions of people around the world."
Gerald Alexander Anderson – famous for the use of "Supermarionation", or the use of modified puppets – was born in 1929 in Hampstead, north London, and began his career as a film trainee at the Ministry of Information before starting work at Gainsborough Pictures. He later set up AP Films with some friends.
With commissions thin on the ground Anderson and his team were eager to produce their first puppet show The Adventures Of Twizzle. Others including Torchy The Battery Boy, and Supercar followed. Success continued with Fireball XL5 and Stingray. But it was Thunderbirds, filmed on the Slough Trading Estate in Berkshire and first broadcast in 1965 that made his name. With the catchphrase "Thunderbirds are go!", the programme revolved around International Rescue, a secret emergency service run by the Tracy family aided by London agent Lady Penelope and her butler, Parker.
In 1966, Thunderbirds was made into a major feature film for United Artists, Thunderbirds Are Go, which was followed by a sequel, Thunderbird 6.
Anderson moved towards live action productions in the 1970s, producing Space: 1999. In the 1980s, a burst of nostalgia for his Supermarionation series led to the commission of new productions, including a remake of Captain Scarlet. New Captain Scarlet, a CGI-animated reimagining of the 1967 series, premiered on ITV in the UK in 2005. He also worked as a consultant on a Hollywood remake of his 1969 series UFO, directed by Matthew Gratzner.
Anderson was a one-of-a kind film and television producer, who had far-reaching influence, according to his fan club dedication. "Anderson's unique style of filmmaking influenced the imaginations and careers of countless creatives that succeeded him, and his productions continue to be shown around the world to new generations of fans," it read.
Television presenter Jonathan Ross praised his work, tweeting: "Sad news. Gerry Anderson RIP. For men of my age his work made childhood an incredible place to be."
The producer was diagnosed with mixed dementia two years ago and his condition had deteriorated over the past six months and he had moved into a care home in October. He also worked as an ambassador for The Alzheimer's Society, to raise awareness and money for the treatment of the disease. Gerry Anderson leaves three children from former marriages, Joy, Linda and Gerry Junior, his son Jamie and widow Mary.

Stracult e Stracotti - …ovvero la serie che questa settimana va su e quella che inevitabilmente va giù. Parola di Stargirl!


Sei anni vissuti nell’Upper East Side al fianco di Serena, Blair, Chuck, Dan e Nate, non saranno semplici da dimenticare.
Su e giù dalle limousine, tra eventi glam e party di beneficienza, con un martini cocktail in una mano e un flûte di champagne nell’altra, i ragazzi griffati e “pettinati” più chiacchierati di sempre, ci hanno detto addio.
Stracult per certi versi, stracotti per altri, anche se adesso non ce rendiamo conto, in futuro ci mancheranno. Gossip Girl teneva in piedi l’ultimo baluardo teen drama, un genere in piena crisi mistica, che con la chiusura lo scorso anno di One Tree Hill, riusciva a sopravvivere solo grazie alla compagnia di Serena Van Der Woodsen e della sua allegra combriccola.
Soundtrack direttamente dai primi posti delle classifiche pop di tutto il mondo, una regia frizzante e divertente e un cast dall’inestimabile fascino: queste le caratteristiche forti dello show, peculiarità che ahimè, nel corso degli anni, non sono state sufficienti però a tenere alto il livello della serie.
Penalizzato da una sceneggiatura piuttosto frivola e da una visibile inconsistenza nel plot, il telefilm creato da Josh Schwartz e tratto dalla serie di romanzi di Cecily von Ziegesar, non ha saputo superare la crisi del terzo anno.
Trascinandosi faticosamente nel tortuoso sentiero della CW, network che di recente non fa che collezionare un flop dopo l’altro, Gossip Girl ha registrato un repentino calo negli ascolti a partire dalla fine del terzo anno, riuscendo però a sopravvivere, molti di noi non si spiegano come, fino a oggi.
Un finale molto atteso quello trasmesso la scorsa settimana, per nulla all’altezza delle aspettative però: bizzarra l’identità, finalmente svelata, di Gossip Girl, la blogger dalla lingua tagliente che altri non è che Dan “lonely boy” Humphrey, e piuttosto “telefonati”, i matrimoni portati in scena nella series finale, quello di Chuck e Blair prima, e quello di Serena e Dan poi.
Difetti a parte, non mi sento però di sparare a zero su questi sei lunghissimi anni, certa che lo spartiacque segnato dallo show dopo The O.C., resterà comunque negli annali: Serena è una versione di Marissa 2.0, con un profilo Facebook e uno smartphone dal quale non si separa mai, più spregiudicata e ribelle, ma senza dubbio, almeno all’inizio, molto affascinante. E come tutti gli altri protagonisti che in questi anni ci hanno tenuto compagnia, ci hanno fatto sorridere e ogni tanto, sono anche riusciti a farci emozionare.
