Tale Of Tales Trailer


Happily ever after wasn't always the way fairy tales turned out. Sometimes Princesses, Kings, Queens and their pretenders need to be careful what they wish for. The Queen of Longtrellis, The King of Highhills and The King of Strongcliff are three such people who would do anything to make their biggest dreams come true.

For the Queen of Longtrellis, all she's ever wanted is a child of her own but the king and queen haven't been able to conceive. Not willing to wait any longer, the queen consults a sorcerer who is able to grant the Queens wish at any price the enchanter wishes.

The King of Highhills was never blessed with a son, his daughter is his only living heir and invites his citizens to take part in a challenge to win the hand of his daughter. When a brute of a ogre wins his challenge, the princess is given away and begins a lonesome life with him in the mountains. However, despite the ogre abusing the slight girl, as each day passes, she becomes stronger and bides her time before the day that she can become the leader her Kingdom needs.

Lessons In Love Trailer


Richard Haig is a remarkably intelligent, charming, ageing poetry professor, whose life away from the classroom at Cambridge is one of constant hedonism and an unquenchable lust for women. He thinks nothing of sleeping with his attractive grad student Kate and even shamelessly makes a move on her hardlined older sister Olivia, much to her displeasure. Richard is forced to confront the consequences of his over-indulgent behaviour when Kate announces she's pregnant with his child. While fatherhood has never appealed to him much, he is ready to settle down, get married and experience family life, but when Kate falls in love with somebody else, it becomes clear that he's still got a long way to go before he can be considered a responsible person. Kate allows their son to stay with Richard, but only under the supervision of Olivia, who's about to teach Richard more about life and romance than he's ever taught about poetry.

Salma Hayek Donald Trump

Salma Hayek says she despises Donald Trump and his comments about immigrants so much that she won’t even “say his name” in public in case it gives him the oxygen of “extra publicity”. The Mexican-born actress and naturalised US citizen gave her thoughts on Trump’s latest controversy in an interview with E! on Wednesday (July 29th).

“I'm aware that he would say anything to attract attention and create the publicity around him,” the 48 year old actress, who stars in the upcoming film Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. “If something generates publicity, I would never be surprised about anything he does.”

“I'd be surprised if he did something courageous and meaningful that nobody found out about,” she continued. “This was not courageous and meaningful.”
