Video ~ True Blood : Invitation to the Set

True Blood premieres a week from today on HBO. I am eager to check out their Vampire world. Funny.... the lead actors on this tv show are also from other countries. Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) is from New Zealand and Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) is from England. Ooooooooo ~ and Ryan Kwanten (Sookie's brother, Jason) is Australian.

In this video, we get a peek behind the scenes on the set of True Blood. Anna Paquin, Charlaine Harris (author of the book series on which the program is based), Ryan Kwanten, Alan Ball (executive producer & creator), Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) are all interviewed. They tell us a bit about what the series has in store.

We can watch & rate True Blood when it debuts next Sunday, September 7th, 2008. Please, let me know what you think of the show :)

Release date for Twilight movie moved up to November 21st

Since the latest Harry Potter film (and the Half-Blood Prince) premiere has been switched to Summer 2009, their old November 21st, 2008 spot was available. Twilight is grabbing the date.... moving up its movie theater debut from December to November. We like sooner better than later :)

In the ever-evolving fall release schedule, Summit Entertainment's highly anticipated adaptation of the Stephenie Meyer teen vampire romance novel "Twilight" has moved from its Dec. 12 perch to Nov. 21, the date just vacated by Warner Bros.' "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."

"When Warner Bros. decided to move 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' to the summer of 2009, we saw a unique opportunity to slot in our film which has been gaining tremendous awareness and momentum over the past several months," Summit's Rob Friedman said.

Striking a respectful tone, Friedman added, "We by no means are trying to fill the shoes of the incredible Potter franchise for 2008, rather we are just looking to bring the fans of Stephenie Meyer's incredible book series the film as soon possible from a programming perspective."
