sing along "mamma mia!"

sing along

Did you know that Mamma Mia! is the highest grossing musical in the history of the United Kingdom? If you thought your mom and sister were insane for loving the movie, well, now you have the entire United Kingdom to shake your head at. In fact, the movie is so popular over there that theaters are finding new ways to get people into seats all over again, finally allowed to sing along the way they've always wanted.

U.K. exhibitors like Vue, Cineworld, Odeon, Empire Cinemas, Showcase Cinemas and Picturehouse will be hosting sing-along screenings of Mamma Mia!, beginning August 22. Given that it's the 19th-highest grossing movie in the history of British cinema, it's probably already playing in a lot of those theaters as it is. Still, if you're in the U.K. and you're dying to see the movie again with fellow Mamma lovers, check your local listings and prepare to sing along.

007 festival

007 festival

Since 1962, EON Productions has cranked out 21 James Bond films, with six different actors taking the Bond mantle and 10 different directors guiding them through it; 33 sexy sirens vying for Bond's attention and affections (15 of those with ridiculous names like Pussy Galore, Honey Ryder, Jinx and Solitaire); 195 Bond-executed kills; and a dozen near or faked Bond deaths. Impressive stats for a single character and ones that allow for events like Beach Theatre's James Bond Festival, where you can see seven 007 films for $7. Among the featured selections are the first five in the series, in which a young and sexy Sean Connery set the suave Bond standard. Although he was apparently the filmmakers' last choice, Connery fit the role so well that by 1971, following George Lazenby's single underwhelming portrayal of Bond in the sixth film, Connery was bribed back into the franchise one more time with a $2 million paycheck and a share in the film's gross profits. To this day, Connery is considered by many to be the preeminent Bond. See him in newly restored 35mm prints of Dr No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball and You Only Live Twice while enjoying (shaken, not stirred) vodka martinis and various giveaways; The Spy Who Loved Me (starring Roger Moore) and Goldeneye (starring Pierce Brosnan) are also on the screening schedule. Aug 22-24, showtimes vary, 315 Corey Ave., St. Pete Beach, $7 weekend pass/$3 single admission, 727-360-6697, beach-theatre.com.

Brosnan's kids

 

 

Pierce Brosnan Wants His Kids to Feel Loved

source; reader digest

Mamma Mia's Pierce Brosnan was raised without a father, and the experience has driven him to make sure that his kids -- including sons Dylan Thomas, 11 ½, and Paris Beckett, 7 ½ -- "feel like they belong" and "know the love of family." In fact, that's what makes him tick, the 55-year-old explained. "I'm very aware of how precious the time with my children is."

Capitalizing on that time together, the actor spends time with his sons painting and learning how to surf, making pancakes each morning and going on picnics. He and his wife, journalist Keely Shaye Smith, 44, have also turned their sons into little environmentalists, sharing that "the boys know how to compost all the food, and it goes into the garden."

Pierce is father to Sean, 24 -- his son with his first wife, the late Cassandra Harris. Pierce also adopted Cassandra's two children from a previous marriage -- Charlotte, 36, and Christopher, 35.

Brosnan losing pounds

Brosnan losing pounds

 

Pierce Brosnan is desperate to lose his "'Mamma Mia!' middle."

Former James Bond star Pierce - who insists he looks fat in the new musical movie - is keen to get rid of his excess pounds before he starts filming 'The Thomas Crown Affair 2' with director Paul Verhoeven.

Pierce, 55, said: "Paul does sexy really well. I will have to go to the gym to lose my 'Mamma Mia!' middle before we start the film!"

The actor is set to reprise his role as the thief in the sequel to hit 1999 movie "The Thomas Crown Affair" and Angelina Jolie - who recently gave birth to twins - is said to be in final negotiations to play the character's young love interest.

Rene Russo was Pierce's co-star in the first movie, but the actor insists he wants a new beauty to woo, adding: "This is a different affair." Pierce can currently be seen in "Mamma Mia!" alongside Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Amanda Seyfried.

Brosnan protecting coast of Baja

Brosnan protecting coast of Baja

source ; variety.com

Pierce Brosnan and wife Keely Shaye have joined with the Natural Resources Defense Council to win battles that include stopping the construction of a proposed salt factory on the Baja California peninsula, the last pristine breeding ground for the Pacific gray whale. Currently they and the NRDC are trying to stop the U.S. Navy's deployment of a new sonar system, which they contend threatens marine mammals.

Their reasons for trying to protect the ocean are basic. "We live by the sea and we enjoy that whole world," Brosnan says. Or as Shaye explains, "The ocean is responsible for a lot of our oxygen. Also, marine mammals are mascots of sorts. If we can't save them, what can we save?"

It's a planet in peril, but Brosnan sees hope in increased activism. "Fifteen years ago, it was almost a smear to be called an environmentalist. Now, it is palpable in every sense of the word of what's happening around us."

Susan Jordan

As director of the California Coastal Protection Network, Susan Jordan credits Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye with helping to prevent a liquefied natural gas terminal from being built 12 miles off the coast of Malibu. "I honestly feel if they had not gotten involved, 1) I'm not sure we would have won, and 2) we would not have been able to educate the public. They raised it to a national, as well as an international, issue." As Jordan explains, the facility was an obvious terrorist target due to the highly volatile and inflammable nature of liquid natural gas.

Brosnan talks about sequel "Thomas crown"

Brosnan about THomas Crown sequel

Source : USA today

USA Today caught up with Pierce Brosnan who talked a little about The Thomas Crown Affair 2, directed by Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Starship Troopers, Showgirls). The sequel is expected to come out in 2009. Here's what they had to say:

The new caper is partly based on 1964's Topkapi. "We are just using a sliver of that," he says, including the same setting, Istanbul. This time, his billionaire thief is after a rare diamond instead of paintings.

While Rene Russo will not return, a female co-star has yet to be named. Angelina Jolie is considered in the running. "This is a different affair," Brosnan says.

"Mamma Mia! sells"

Mamma Mia! soundtrack

The soundtrack album has reached number 3 in the USA and has been number one in more than 30 countries.

More than 30 million people have seen the musical. The stage show has been performed in 170 cities and translated into 8 languages.

The soundtrack album features the cast of the movie, including Brosnan and Meryl Streep, on vocals. Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus mixed, mastered and produced the soundtrack, featuring original Abba songs.

The album features the musicians who originally played on the songs in the 70s. Anderson played keyboards on the soundtrack album. "We didn't have to think about it ' it was in the fingers," he said.

The soundtrack was recorded in Stockholm in February 2007.

Pierce out to sea

Pierce planning to buy a boat

source ; ok magazine

All aboard! Pierce Brosnan is ready to set sail!

The Mamma Mia! star is planning to make waves this summer with his new hobby -- boating!

“He wants to brush up on his sea-faring skills,” a friend of the actor tells OK!. “He learned how to drive just about every boat there is for James Bond, and in The Thomas Crown Affair, he spent a lot of time on the open water."

So taken with boats Pierce is that he's planning to fashion his own vessel for outings to sea with his family, wife Keely Shaye Smith and their children, Dylan, 11, and Paris, 7.

“Keely loves the idea,” adds the friend.

But before the 55-year-old can get his hand on his own toy, he plans on retreating to a tropical island with his wife before he starts production on The Greatest and The Thomas Crown Affair sequel for a romantic getaway.

"Pierce says there’s nothing like being alone on the ocean with your loved ones," the friend says.
