Angelina Jolie’s advanced birthday gift to Brad Pitt is a heart shaped island!

Angelina Jolie is giving Brad Pitt a big heart on his 50th birthday literally!

Angelina Jolie has reportedly spent $12.2 million on a heart-shaped island for Brad Pitt’s birthday on December 18th. The actress purchased the island, named Petra, which is about 50 miles away from New York City.

Angelina is understood to have snapped up the island, located some 50-miles away from New York City, after discovering its two sprawling properties were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Brad’s favorite architect.

A source told The Mirror: ‘As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed. The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat.

‘It’s very private. And Angelina knows the fact the island is in the shape of a heart will mean so much to him.’

Petra’s original cottage was erected in 1950, while its larger property was built from one of Wright’s blueprints in 2008 – 48-years after his death.

The home boasts panoramic views of the surrounding area, ceilings panelled with the finest mahogany and skylights that afford the property plenty of natural lighting.

Its spacious kitchen effortlessly juxtaposes new and old, combining conventional fixtures and fittings with highly distinctive work surfaces chiselled out of granite.

The 34-year-old singer-songwriter, who is engaged to Victoria’s Secrets model Behati Prinsloo, told People magazine he was taken aback by the announcement.

This is what he said:

As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table. I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.”

Levine joins an illustrious list of prior winners of the award including Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, George Clooney and Matt Damon.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” Main Poster Revealed!

The main one-sheet for Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” has just been released by Warner Bros., New Line Cinema and MGM Pictures.

HDOS_1SHT_MAIN_INTL-692x1024

From Academy Award®-winning filmmakerm Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all—a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself—the Dragon Smaug.

Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, with Martin Freeman in the central role of Bilbo Baggins, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. The international ensemble cast is led by Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, and Orlando Bloom. The film also stars (in alphabetical order) John Bell, Manu Bennett, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Lawrence Makoare, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, Mikael Persbrandt, and Aidan Turner.

A production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” will be released in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures on Dec. 11, 2013.

Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki in ‘Thor: The Dark World’!

British actor Tom Hiddleston plays Loki, Thor’s scheming, Machiavellian brother, for the third time in the 3D action adventure, Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World.”

Thor1

He notes that not only is it a privilege but also enjoyable to be able to reprise a character. “The amazing thing about Loki is that this is my third meeting with him, and we’ve had a year between each film, so essentially my understanding of the character deepens every time,” says Hiddleston. “I feel like the ‘Thor’ sequel and my third engagement with playing him was a chance as an actor to find new depth, new dimension, new iterations of his psychology, of his physicality and his capacity for feeling.”

Hiddleston has elevated Loki to the status of a fan favorite, despite the fact that Loki is undeniably a villain. In “Thor: The Dark World” fans will be treated to another perspective of Loki’s psyche. Hiddleston explains, “Loki is, on one level, this off-the-rails psychopathic agent of chaos who exists in the mythology as a kind of wrecking ball. But on a human level, his psychology and his emotional landscape is very, very interesting because he’s so intelligent and yet so broken. This film is a chance to find where his capacity for heroism and his Machiavellian menace meet.”

Hiddleston is quick to point out, however, that there are aspects of Loki that have to stay true to his development in the previous films. “Loki is still the same character, so he’s still possessed of a rakish charm and provocative wit,” says the actor. “He still loves provoking people and finding and exploiting weakness.

“He’s still selfish and vain and arrogant and proud, but he’s also elegant and amusing. He’s so full of charisma, and that’s why I love playing him; he’s not an all-out bad guy. He’s someone who knows his true nature and is having a really good time; there is an element of delight and joy at being bad,” concludes Hiddleston.

Although “Thor: The Dark World” takes place in a fantastical realm, it is grounded in a reality that makes it relatable to audiences on many levels. Hiddleston explains, “The really exciting thing about the world of Thor is that you have, at the center of it, a figure in a huge red cape that billows in the wind and a hammer and chainmail and he looks like a god, but he’s also a man who is wrestling with his identity and his destiny. He’s arguing with his father, he has a very complicated relationship with his brother—which is where I come in—and he has a mother and a woman he loves. What’s so exciting is that all of the characters within that landscape are infused with a humanity and a humanity that seems to reflect our own. Everyone in this world has a family; every family bumps heads occasionally, and this family in Asgard is no different.”

Hiddleston credits director Alan Taylor with bringing the world of Asgard to life. “Alan is fantastic and within seconds he revealed his experience and also his openness in creating a really believable world,” comments Hiddleston. “I thought it was really interesting that he wanted to expand our sense of the world; he wanted to deepen and shade it. He wanted to give it a kind of grittier feel in the sense that this is the race that the Vikings worshiped and there was a very clear link that felt somehow ancient and Viking and Norse and rugged and salty.”

The practical sets that were used to invoke the sense of reality were a boon for Hiddleston, who says, “It makes the scene incredibly dynamic and you get ideas that are really exciting. Actors, at their best, are responding to real things, that real physical material, and it just gives you a sense of space.”

Hiddleston was particularly enthused by shooting on location in Iceland. “We shot exteriors for the Dark World in Iceland, which of all the places on this planet I think is the most magical,” says Hiddleston. “It’s got an otherworldly quality to it. It’s so near the Arctic, so close to the uninhabitable regions of this world. In Iceland you get such scale. You get purple skies. We were shooting on a volcanic lava field, and you get epic footage that you can’t get anywhere else.”

Hiddleston finds the fans’ response to the “Thor” franchise “amazing.” “People are so free with their passion for the emotional landscape of what we’ve created—huge characters with really human weaknesses; characters who are striving for unity and harmony and love and peace, but there are so many things in the way,” says Hiddleston. “In Loki’s terms, it’s all of the darkest aspects of human nature—loneliness and jealousy and rage and despair—and these are very human feelings. I love how the fans have really embraced that and they follow it and believe in it and reflect it. It’s given us the confidence to go deeper with it.”

When the film opens in theaters, Hiddleston is excited to see all the scenes come together to form the whole narrative, but there is something else that the British actor is looking forward to. He says, “The thing that’s really unique about ‘Thor: The Dark World’ is contemporary London. In the first film the action cut between Asgard and Earth, and Earth was a town in New Mexico. In this film it’s Asgard and London, and it’s a very contemporary London that I very much, as a native resident of London, recognize and am excited by. No one’s going to have seen London in the way they see it in this film, so that’s very cool.”

Opening across the Philippines on Oct. 30 in IMAX 3D, Digital 3D, 2D and regular theaters, Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International.
