And i would start with the neck muscles…he has such a wonderful sternocleoidalmastoid process. sternum. wow. that shirt looks reallly soft…and he needs to be out of it!!! Omega may want to have just him and the timepiece in his promo pic–nekkid. dah!

Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz to film in Budapest
British actors Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz will come to Budapest in March to film scenes for a movie in which Craig will play the man who executed László Rajk, the first victim of Hungary’s how trials, in 1949, according to reports.

The film, produced by Andy Vajna, will portray the dreaded ÁVH security services and the horrors of life in Hungary in the 1950s, based on a script written by historian Sándor Keser.

Hungarian actors Sándor Oszter and actress Petra Haumann have completed several days of filming

@Fio:

Sorry Flo that I would keep a secret but it’s not likely to happen with a new woman in his life.

to LL-J
Thanks for the article. Wow…that’s weird. I found the Hungarian article, but may I take their word for it? If it’s true, there is a strong
‘bond’ of affection between them, IMO. Anyway I want to wait a further news :)
Andy Vajnának még nincs köze az ÁVH-filmhez

Articles have appeared in various media outlets for a movie about some AVH (website), in which the news that Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig is playing, and a project on some fresh news that Andy Vajna also involved in some capacity. The movie is a funny articles on common element here: a lot more attention veteránautóknak used in the film, like other details, but the information is not entirely ancillary to settle out of the movie is missing from the Scriptures.

Andy Vajna sajtóosztályától it got the information that is not familiar with a film and it has nothing to do Vajnának. The production later this press chief, confirmed to us Bóday Paul, who said that at present it can only hope that Vajna embrace the project and receive public support for him as well. For the time being exclusively sponsored by a small film with a total budget of approx. Will be $ 600 million, according to the plans of the creators, but that it has managed to gather much, he did not wish to declare.

Bóday said that the plan to work “in the documentary and feature films will be located at the border” and “historical fidelity, we sincerely wish to reveal the horrors of the 50s, with all its cruelty.” The power enters the Rakosi period Event log and history of the revolution “would be a film in which elements are real roots, but also integrated into the fictional personal histories, such as the boxer’s story, from the countryside who moved to Budapest, Andrássy út 60 to arrange appropriate referrals, where we get the first task to beat to death a priest from the village of their own.

The screenplay of the film’s producer, dr. Sandor Bitter and American Alex veterángyűjtő Waltner wrote. As it turns out, is not a coincidence that an article did not mention the name of the director: the film, whose filming is currently suspended, has completed fifteen minutes, but the original director – who do not want to name Bóday – redeemer, and then dr. Bitter Alexander directed the work. Leszerződtetni want another director, but this has not declared until the person is not final.

The film’s two main characters and Petra Haumann Oszter Alexander, Koos Béláné ÁVH former officer Michael Wolf recent converts, who has a “Muscovite foursome” was a member of Rakosi, Erno Gero and Joseph Révai together. Son, Vladimir Farkas Máté Haumann and play. The press agent said that the producer Daniel Craig in Fateless, Rachel Weisz is filming Sunshine knew when the contemporary productions borrowed vehicles.

Both actors reportedly willing to undertake a small role in the movie: Craig hangman, Weisz rebel egyetemistalányt shape. Known to be very crowded Craig Calendar, currently David Fincherrel rotates the girl was tattooed, in the second half of the next James Bond film will work, but the AVH Film in just two days to rotate, so you may get an appointment in the spring him.

It will include non-professional actors in the film: the aforementioned Stephen Szikora boxer boxer will shape itself by Szucs Sandor Bitter Ernest AVH appears in the role of colonel. The film will be a dr. Balint, a Hungarian Mengelének titulált figure, who was also not an actor, but also plays a doctor, because the filmmakers that he could be credible.

So far, mainly in the shooting took place in the prison in Vac, then including the Vac bishopric and the staff to work locations in Budapest. If we could raise the funding, within weeks of filming the movie continue, and the filmmakers want the film AVH 2012th October 23, I would be in theaters.

I think this work would do credit to a professional.

Omega and Daniel Craig Team Up to Support Orbis
http://www.winderz.com/?p=1204

Omega has announced that it will work in cooperation with actor and brand ambassador Daniel Craig to support Orbis International and its Flying Eye Hospital in the fight against preventable blindness.

A special watch – the Hour Vision Blue – has been created to celebrate the partnership, and Omega has guaranteed that at least one million U.S. dollars from its sale will be donated to Orbis, an organization which delivers eye care to some of the world’s most remote and developing regions.

OMEGA president Stephen Urquhart spoke of his brand’s commitment saying, “Omega is pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to Orbis’ remarkable mission. It’s particularly gratifying to be working with Daniel in support of an organization whose work we all believe in.”

Daniel Craig is arranging a visit to Orbis’ Flying Eye Hospital with Omega this year. “I think that it’s important to do all that we can to draw attention to the invaluable work that Orbis is doing. By visiting them in the field and seeing their team at work, I hope we will be able to make more people aware of the issue of preventable blindness and to let them know how much of a difference they can make. I’m delighted that Omega feels as strongly about this initiative as I do.”

Since it was founded in 1982, Orbis has carried out programs in 88 countries to provide medical training, tools and technology for local partners to address the tragedy of avoidable blindness in their communities. As a result of Orbis’ support, more than 12 million individuals have received medical care and more than a quarter of a million eye care professionals have been trained.

“We are tremendously excited about our new partnership with Omega”, stated Dr. Robert Walters, Chairman of Orbis, “and are looking forward to working closely with Omega and Daniel to heighten the awareness of preventable blindness in the developing world. With Omega and Daniel’s support, Orbis will reach and treat even more people, reducing the global burden of blindness and ensuring productive lives for many”.

The Hour Vision Blue wristwatch is a special edition of the elegant Hour Vision. It has a classic 41 mm stainless steel case and is equipped with Omega’s Co-Axial caliber 8500, the movement that signaled a revolution in series-produced mechanical watchmaking. The movement can be viewed through the sapphire crystal on the caseback.

Adding distinction to the timepiece is its specially designed sun-brushed blue dial. It has 18kt white gold facetted hour, minute and seconds hands coated with white Super-LumiNova and features a date window at the 3 o’clock position.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” they say. But if the beholder has poor vision, the beauty of the world is lost. And helping restore that image is Orbis International and its Flying Eye Hospital in the fight against preventable blindness. And now they have a few new friends in luxury watchmakers Omega and their ambassador, actor Daniel Craig. While Craig is planning a visit to Orbis’ Flying Eye Hospital with Omega this year, Omega on its part is doing what it does best. In a bid to raise at least $1 million, the watch makers have created a special edition Hour Vision Blue wristwatch. The watch features a classic 41 mm stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal caseback. Its comes equipped with Omega’s Co-Axial caliber 8500 and spots an 18-carat white gold hour, minute and seconds hands that is coated with white Super-LumiNova. Making the chronograph more special is a specially designed sun-brushed blue dial.

Founded in 1982, Orbis is known to have medical training programs and to provide tools and technology for local partners for blindness prevention in 88 countries and has extended medical care to over 12 million people and trained at least 25 million more.

LL-J @ 01/25/2011 at 4:39 am

thanks for the information on the film that Daniel is doing together with Rachel. but you gotta know that this will really upset our “friend” Gina. i bet she will be posting very soon that this film will not be finished on time, will be cancelled, etc.etc. just as she’s done with C&A, Dragon Tattoo and any other project Daniel has decided to do that is not a Bond film.

@second that:

The film is just a reason for them to spend time together. They will do more films together for that reason.

Hi Guinness

“Omega may want to have just him and the timepiece in his promo pic–nekkid”

YAY! I’m all for Dan’s nekkidness :)

And this is from the link you provided, even they know about the mystical connection between the words “Dan” and “ride”…

“the well-known actor pays some attention to the way his rides interact with the environment.”

Oh no! Frozen pipes. Are they outside or inside the house? Identify first where the frozen pipe is, if you can. If they are inside and behind a wall, turn up the heating, this might do, but do keep an eye on them – they could burst when the ice thaws! If they are exposed, ie under the sink and visible or outside, you can put a small heater near to get the heat to it quickly.
Also, leave the water tap of the frozen pipe open while you are helping it to thaw, so that the water can get out quicker.
If you see any leak in the pipe, turn your water mains off quickly – very quickly!

And listen to DiH

“You will just have to keep looking at pictures of Dan and his hotness to keep you warm.”

to LL-J

Great find! That’s interesting – how is Dan going to squeeze more filming in when he’s doing ‘Tattoo’ and also the Dream House reshots? Sounds like he’ll be spending more time at airports…

to Fio

“Both actors reportedly willing to undertake a small role in the movie: Craig hangman, Weisz rebel”

Wow, a different role altogether – and strangely I can see Dan as a hangman.
Maybe Rachel drew Dan’s attention to this film – her Dad was born in Hungary, so perhaps she has an interest in the history of the country? (I am guessing here).

“Omega has announced that it will work in cooperation with actor and brand ambassador Daniel Craig to support Orbis International and its Flying Eye Hospital in the fight against preventable blindness.”

Wonderful. A very worthy cause.

Hi Mendel, dih-thx–it was balmy weather today-6 degrees above zero. more snow, cold, and yes… heat me Daniel!

OH! thx for that Muse vid of their concert–that was spectuacular and almost spiritual–it was so dynamic..they do fit the Bond movie songs!

i agree that you are annoying. you posted the exact same comment on three different days. you must really like repeating yourself. or maybe you don’t think any of can read

Hi, elise
What a good idea!
Hi, Mendel
“Maybe Rachel drew Dan’s attention to this film – her Dad was born in Hungary, so perhaps she has an interest in the history of the country? (I am guessing here).”
Ahhhhhhhh, yes, yes, probably so!! Her father is a Hungarian-born inventor… You’re an acute observer, so your comment was to the point!
I want them to visit the Buda castle if they go to Budapest.
Walk holding hands in the moonlight. It’s a romantic destination for dating couples.

Legendary British actress Dame Judi Dench says she wants to continue playing secret service agent M in the 007 franchise until she dies.
Speaking at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards, she told BANG Showbiz: “I love Bond. I get to work with Daniel Craig on location and wear some rather sharp suits.
“I’ll do it as long as they ask if I’m alive that long,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

Just Hit Play
The good, the bad and the ugly in movies
http://tobrien10.blogspot.com/2011/01/layer-cake.html

As much as I loved Casino Royale and everything Daniel Craig brought to the part of James Bond, it isn’t my favorite part of this fast-rising star. It’s easy now to just think of Craig as 007 and nothing else, but he’s a talented actor, capable of pulling off drama, action and humor all in the same scene, much less a whole movie. So as good as Craig is as Bond, I’d recommend any Daniel Craig fans out there to see 2004′s Layer Cake, one of the best films to come out of the 2000s and a criminally underrated one at that.

This is one of those movies you stumble across almost by accident, love it, and then can’t convince enough people to watch it. I watched it based solely because I was a Daniel Craig fan, and shame on me, the DVD box looked cool. I’ve seen it called all kinds of things, a Guy Ritchie knock-off especially, but it’s one of those rare great movies that works almost in spite of itself. Based off a novel by J.J. Connolly, Layer Cake has too many characters, more style than substance often enough, and twists and turns so much it took me a couple viewings to piece everything together for sure. All that out of the way, I love this movie. I’ll explain later.

A high-end drug distributor, a man known only as XXXX (Craig) has quickly risen through the ranks of the very stylish but still cutthroat underworld. In fact, he’s done so well with his crew of chemists, bodyguards and distributors, that he’s calling it quits at the age of 30 and going into early retirement. Not so fast, his boss (Kenneth Cranham) has two more jobs for him, and then he’ll let him walk away. First, a shipment of 1 million ecstasy pills is on the market, and they’re just sitting there for the taking. Two, the daughter of an old friend of the boss is missing, and she must be found before something happens to her. Completely backed into a corner unless he wants to risk a bullet in his head, X takes both jobs in his effort to leave the business cleanly. But as he so well knows, nothing comes easy, and nothing here goes as planned.

The basic idea of the last job is nothing new here as X tries to pull off these last two jobs. The novel is a great jumping off point — even if the ending sucks in the book — and director Matthew Vaughn runs with the idea. The movie has the action style of a Bourne movie, the look of a glossy British crime thriller, the dark humor of a Scorsese gangster flick, and the twists and turns you’d expect from a Shyamalan movie. What’s so odd is that all these vastly different pieces click together and work so smoothly. It’s stylish without overdoing it, violent without being gratuitous, funny without pandering for laughs, and keeping you on your toes without trying to straight out confuse you. A winner on all accounts.

As I mentioned earlier, Craig is a huge bright spot here, showing a different side as an actor. He hadn’t yet done a Bond film so he’s not in crazy, ridiculous physical shape here. He’s on the thin side which is important because he isn’t this superhero dealer. X explains, “He’s just a business man” and a highly intelligent one at that. Nothing about these two jobs is as simple as they seem, and he’s got to figure everything out before it’s too late. X is smooth, smart and very capable of handling himself…although if the chance arises he’ll hire someone who is also capable of handling themselves. His narration is spot-on, especially in the movie’s opening (watch HERE) and sets the stage perfectly for the rest of the movie. The tone is going to be cynical with its dark look at the criminal underworld and all its shady dealings. As a front man for this movie, Craig was a perfect choice.

Don’t get confused though and think this is just Daniel Craig’s movie because the cast has so much more to offer. Where to start, where to start? Vaughn assembles this great list of British actors to play this long list of eclectic, often rather eccentric characters. Here’s just some, starting with George Harris as Morty, X’s security with a checkered past, with Tom Hardy and Tamer Hassan as X’s crew. Cranham is Jimmy Price, X’s shady boss who pawns off much of his work on Colm Meaney’s Gene, X’s link to Jimmy. Sienna Miller is Tammie, a club girl who X instantly feels a connection too. Miller is sexy as hell, check here out HERE. Michael Gambon is Eddie Temple, Jimmy’s old friend and current rival, ready to throw X for a loop in his perfect plan. Then there’s Dexter Fletcher, Steve John Shepard, Stephen Walters, and Louis Emerick, all recognizable faces if you don’t know their names in great supporting parts that requires barely more than a scene or two to establish who they are and what they’re up to.

What’s funny as I write this is that the list previously mentioned is only the key characters. Yeah, there’s more characters that bounce in and out as needed. Almost every single one of the above characters mentioned is so well-written that they could all get their own movie. So throw all these individuals in one movie — with surprising amounts of background — and you’ve got a gem. Harris’ Morty and Meaney’s Gene stand out from the rest, two quick flashbacks revealing all you need to know about them. With X, Morty, Gene and the crew, there is a perfect chemistry, a relationship formed from men having worked together in difficult, strenuous situations and bonding through it. A great scene between Craig, Harris and Meaney has them talking about strategy, what their next move is as the walls start closing in on them. It reminded me of a scene that Peckinpah would have used in The Wild Bunch, Scorsese in Goodfellas, John Sturges in The Magnificent Seven. Would it have been great to see a 4-hour version where every single character gets his chance to shine? Sure, absolutely, but Vaughn somehow finds a way to weave all these people together and make it work. Kudos to you, Mr. Vaughn.

What else is there to say? I love this movie, and try to watch it at least once a year. It’s one of those hidden gems you’re beyond happy you stumbled upon. Stylish, funny, entertaining with some gunplay, some sex, and a story that will keep you guessing right until the end. Make sure to watch all the way until the credits because the ending is a whopper of a surprise. It says it all in a movie that doesn’t need to deliver a message but does anyway, a good one on the irony scale. For all the epic moves and detailed planning, it can be the smallest detail that ends up making the biggest impact.

Why becasue I like Satsuki? He needs someone like her not someone who competes with him

to DR film @ 01/26/2011 at 1:39 pm

Gina, pay attention here. Satsuki and Daniel are over, done with , finished. what part of this do you not understand? he has moved on to someone else; Rachel. when will you get it through your head that you do not get to decide anything when it comes to what Daniel does and/or who he does it with!! Rachel is a fellow actor; she has a stellar career in her own right and she has an oscar. she does need to compete with Daniel nor he with her. also, unlike Satsuki, Rachel will not appear before the press on a street in front of Daniel’s house flashing a wedding band on her left hand in order to pressure him into marrying her.
