Watch: Three new action-packed 'Wrath of the Titans' TV Spots featuring Rosamund Pike

Image
Warner Bros. has released three (of  5 thus far) new TV spots for Rosamund Pike's upcoming film, Wrath of the Titans. I have previously posted here the first Two new 'Wrath of the Titans' TV Spots. One of the 3 new TV spots (Feel The Wrath) featured more of Rosamund's warrior Queen Andromeda character with new clips of her and these few interesting lines from the film like: "This is a world filled with Gods and Monsters," "Perseus. WIN." "It's time to take a stand!" Can't wait to see her in this film!

Speaking of Miss Pike, she recently attended the Charles Finch and CHANEL Host Pre-BAFTA Dinner (click the link to see a couple pics of her) and there were rumors of her expecting a baby as she looks to be pregnant in these pics here. And looks like it's true, as her spokesman is said to have confirmed the happy news via Daily Mail. Read article of James Bond's Rosamund Pike expecting first child here. Congrats to RP!

Happy Birthday Brenda Blethyn!

Image
Today is the 66th birthday of two-time Academy Award Award NomineeBrenda Blethyn, best known to us P&P fans as Mrs. Bennet, the Bennet girls' mother in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film.

After twenty years of hard work on stage and both television and films, there are not many other actresses who deserved the success, recognition and stardom which Brenda Blethyn has now achieved.

Born in (February 20th) 1946 in Ramsgate in Kent, England, she started her career at British Rail in the 1960s. Saving money during her time there, she took a risk and enrolled herself at the at The Guildford School of Acting in Guildford, Surrey, England and then left her British Rail years behind. Her risk had paid off, by the mid-1970s she was working on stage, eventually joining the National Theatre Company in 1975. (Read more of her Bio on IMDB!)
