Pride & Prejudice Movie Fans Live Tweets on Twitter (Part 3)

Image
Last night (June 12th), there was another back-to-back airing of Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen on TV, back on Oxygen channel. I previously posted part 2 of this last week when it aired back-to-back on Bravo and had first posted about this last May 24th, when it aired twice in a row on Oxygen. I guess this will be a series of posts whenever this movie is broadcast on TV (but of course, it depends, If and when I get a chance to see and live tweet it). Yesterday, I live tweeted during both airings (starting from 5:40 pm and at 8:45 pm East Coast Time), since it was on much earlier and as always, I had a lot fun with other fans who live tweeted and stayed up until midnight to watch this movie again (with all 3 of these hashtags: #pandp2005, #Pride&Prejudice, and #PrideandPrejudice) on Twitter, and to watch and live tweet at the same time with fellow fans of this movie. The first showing was slow, the live tweeting…

Lionsgate just released earlier this afternoon the first The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (Donald Sutherlandas President Snow and Jena Maloneas Johanna Mason co-star) teaser trailer for director Francis Lawrence's final installment of the THG franchise. The teaser trailer featured a quick (blink and you'll miss it) glimpse of Jena's Johanna Mason character (who I didn't noticed was even there in this trailer until after I made a few screen captures...she appeared in the first 9 seconds of the trailer in a flash...with *gasp* no hair!...just behind Effie Trinket...and that's about it! See screen cap of her above and below...) and Donald's President Snow. In the conclusion, Panem has gone to war, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) have come to their final confrontation. A week ago, I posted here the first official Mockingjay - Part 2 poster featuring Donald Sutherland, and according to Collider, the final Epilogue sc…

Pride & Prejudice Movie Fans Live Tweets on Twitter (Part 2)

Image
Last night (June 5th), there was another back-to-back airing of Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen on TV, this time on Bravo channel. I previously posted about this last May 24th, when it aired twice in a row on Oxygen. I guess this will be a series of posts whenever this movie is broadcast on TV (and If I get a chance to see it and live tweet it). I didn't expect to have live tweeted, but I'm glad I did as I always have a lot fun with other fans who live tweeted and stayed up late just to watch this movie over and over again (with all 3 of these hashtags: #pandp2005, #Pride&Prejudice, and #PrideandPrejudice) on Twitter last night, to watch and live tweet at the same time with fellow fans of this movie. So many fans (and even a few non-fans) live tweeted randomly too during the back-to-back airing.

UPDATE: Pride & Prejudice movie is scheduled to be broadcast (back-to-back) on TV on Oxygen (and Oxygen HD)…

I previously posted this here almost a few years ago, but I thought It's worth posting it here again as it's been exactly 10 years ago (June 1st, 2005) today since the first UK trailer for Joe Wright's P&Pmovie was released by Working Title Films (then Working Title Productions).

So, in celebration today of Pride & Prejudice (2005) film's 10 ten years anniversary of its first full-length UK Trailer release (June 1, 2005), I am re-posting both the UK and US trailers here.

In retrospect and for the nostalgia, watch both the UK and US trailers (with transcripts included, which I've transcribed and compiled a few years ago) for P&P movie below...
