'THE GIRL KING' TRAILER ON CHRISTINA QUEEN OF SWEDEN WITH SARAH GADON, FRANCOIS ARNAUD! FIRST 'THE 100' SF SERIES SEASON 3 TRAILER IS HERE!

 'THE 100' SF SERIES
SEASON 3 TRAILER RELEASED
First of all, don't forget to visit our yesterday's article on LEGEND OF TARZAN movie to check out the stunning trailer that I have embedded there in the meantime! It is mind blowing! Adventure can be also seen in the first promo for the third season of CW's popular post apocalyptic series THE 100 which stars January 21st, moved to a brand new and a very convenient Thursday evening time slot after LEGENDS OF TOMORROW!
SURVIVAL NEVER ENDS  
The Mount Weather prisoners have returned home to a world seemingly at peace, but can they find peace within themselves after what they had to do to escape? And is there more to life than just surviving? Unfortunately, their newfound sense of normalcy will be short-lived, and their lives will be changed forever, as threats both old and new test their loyalties, push them past their limits, and make them question what it truly means to be human.


 'THE GIRL KING' TRAILER
QUEEN CHRISTINA OF SWEDEN
Your other clip for today is the trailer for historical drama starring gorgeous Sarah Gadon from DRACULA UNTOLD. THE GIRL KING follows Christina, Queen of Sweden (Malin Buska) in her early years charting  the point in her life as she assumes the throne and begins to shape her country, but must also deal with her burgeoning sexuality. The movie is available on VOD from this month and in Scandinavian cinemas. Sarah Gadon is her lover, Countess Ebba. Francois Arnaud is her cousin future king Karl Gustav Kasimir.

DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON  
Crowned queen at 16 and known for being intense, moody and intellectual, she is remembered for helping bring an end to the 30 Years War and for policies that helped make Stockholm a centre of learning and major European capital. She is also remembered for her unconventional life that makes her feel very, very modern to subsequent generation. Androgynous and uncompromising, her love affairs with women were well documented, and she resisted dressing or behaving as women were expected in her time, never marrying or having children. She caused a scandal when she abdicated her throne and converted to Roman Catholicism! She spent her later years in Rome, becoming a leader of the theatrical and musical life there. As a queen without a country, she protected many artists and projects. She chose her cousin Charles as her heir and organized an extremely lavish coronation for him!

  1. Can't wait to see The Girl King, for obvious reasons! Nice to see that Canadian actor Francois Arnaud will be in it too.

    2. Oh, was it at TIFF? Rats, then I missed it. I'll have to wait for it to come through the regular arthouse cinemas.

    1. Sister, I've been teaching history here for years now :) Those posts usually come as the most read ones. There was a lovely black and white movie on her years in Italy, forgot who played her... was it Hedy Lammar?

  4. That's a terrible name, it's almost like saying "what's that word that's like a king but a girl"

    1. What was your maiden name? Haga?
      We do love the freshly married Swedish prince Karl :) Although my fave are Danish prince and his wife.

    2. Yes, Haga was my maiden name. And that Prince Karl is definitely a looker!

  7. Th Girl King kind of took the edge off from seeing X-Men Apocalypse trailer this morning but only just. I am still in awe of the spanking new trailer. Can you tell Dez? Can you tell?

    Oh and The 100 is going to be very interesting this new season.

    1. Wouldn't know about that trailer, sister, we generally don't do superhero flicks here... unless it is Green Lantern for obvious reasons....

      I wonder if she will get punished for all the atrocities she committed in the second season.

  8. It's good to hear that The 100 will be coming back on TV. This is one of the few TV shows that I actually followed and I figured it would just be another to leave us hanging with no conclusion. Although where it last ended looked like it was going to a very strange realm so maybe its return will not be so good. I guess we'll see.

    1. Really? I'm surprised you watched it, Lee :) The second season was too violent for me, especially when Clarke made opportunistic decisions to kill quite a lot of people. I despise that way of thinking ... it reminds me too much of the politics of some of world's leaders...
      Hope the third season will see them establish a new life and focus on that.

    2. I agree about the violence and some of the outright stupid thinking sometimes annoyed me, but conceptually the show was interesting and kept me engaged. The show is interesting, but it looks like it could be going into some Twin Peaks weirdness in the upcoming season. Not necessarily a bad thing as I'm a big fan of Lynch-style weirdness. However if done in the wrong way it can turn out really dumb.

      I'll just have to wait and see I guess.

    3. yes, many stupid moments, among them trusting that lesbifriendly villain queen :)
      Hope Clarke shows some redemption or something in the new season. And hope they don't bore us too much with that black guy, forgot his name, searching for .... who knows what.... that part is overly confused

  9. Girl kings are as cruel as boy kings. Yes?
