'TROY: THE FALL OF A CITY'  
TV SERIES COMING TO BBC
As always, BBC has something epic in store for us! Together with David Farr (the NIGHT MANAGER scribe) they will produce a  historical television series based on the fall of Troy! TROY: FALL OF A CITY is supposed to retell the majesty and wonder of the Trojan War to the new generation of viewers. With the 3,000 year old story told for the first time through the eyes of a Trojan family, who become entangled in the conflict as war with Greece breaks out, the drama will re-examine the Judgement of Paris, a key event in the ancient world's most prominent tales. The series will convey the emotional richness, the effects of war, and the toll taken on city and family by the horrors of siege.

'THE ANGRY BIRDS' TRAILER 
WITH JASON SUDEIKIS 
Sony has released the first trailer for their animated movie adaptation of famous THE ANGRY BIRDS which are to flap  their wings in the cinemas May next year! The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds...Or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
