Lifetime drives into Stockholm, Pennsylvania!

Stockholm Pennsylvania Lifetime

You can’t seriously let it end with Sex and the City 2, right? That one was TERRIBLE!! You got to complete the trilogy!


A kidnapped girl is rescued as an adult and must readjust to the life she knew before, that is only a distant memory. She’s so used to the sheltered and abusive life of her captivity that being normal seems strange and alien. Stockholm, Pennsylvania deals with emotional trauma after the events of an abduction situation, something we barely see in films. The only one I can even recall is I Know My First Name Is Steven, where Corin Nemec played the adult Steven’s spiral into alcohol abuse and suicidal behavior. Stockholm, Pennsylvania promises a strong look into the rarely mentioned issues that affects those that survive horrific events.
Stockholm, Pennsylvania is written and directed by Nikole Beckwith (her first feature). It stars Saoirse Ronan, Cynthia Nixon, Jason Isaacs, David Warshofsky, and Rosalind Chao.

Lifetime is set to premiere the film “Stockholm, Pennsylvania” on Saturday, May 2, at 8pm ET/PT. Starring Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Atonement”), Golden Globe nominee and Emmy Award winner Cynthia Nixon (“Sex and the City”), Golden Globe nominee Jason Isaacs (“Harry Potter,” “The State Within”) and David Warshofsky (“The Mentalist”), the original movie centers on a young woman, kidnapped as a child, who struggles to readjust to life after being returned home.

Abducted 17 years ago, Leia (Ronan) is miraculously found and returned home to her parents Marcy (Nixon) and Glen Dargon (Warshofsky). Having long forgotten her family, after being raised by her captor Benjamin McKay (Isaacs), Leia finds herself unable to connect to those who love her the most. Instead, she yearns for Ben, the only father figure she’s ever known, and the safety of the basement she called home most of her life. Marcy resorts to desperate measures to forge a relationship with Leia, allowing her marriage to unravel as a byproduct. With Marcy’s increasingly erratic actions echoing those of Ben, Leia is left questioning what it really means to be loved.

Produced by Fido Features in association with Olympus Pictures, “Stockholm, Pennsylvania” is written and directed by Nikole Beck with (“Three Generations,” “Big Beach”). Marking Beckwith’s directorial debut, the film is produced by Greg Ammon (“59 Middle Lane”), Dan Halsted (“Virgin Suicides”) and Leslie Urdang (“Rabbit Hole”).

Stockholm, Pennsylvania premieres May 9th on Lifetime!

The Host infects with a second trailer

Did you camp out overnight to watch Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and now have wait until Stephanie Meyer writes some more books? Luck is on your side, as her other book, The Host, is already becoming a flick and just released the second trailer.

In the future where alien jerks called Souls have wiped out most of humanity and parasitized most of the survivors, the few real humans left include a pair of young hot and heavies known as Jared Howe and Melanie. But Melanie is captured and implanted with a Soul named Wanderer. Wanderer must not have spent much time at the Soul Gold Gym as it’s weak and doesn’t take full control of Melanie, enough that she can convince the alien to go looking for Jared so they can rekindle their romance. And also find her family but who cares about that crap? It’s all about the young love and will there be werewolf teens running around shirtless? Those are the important Stephanie Meyer plot details.

Saoirse Ronan is Melanie, Max Irons (how is that a real name?!?!?!) is Jared Howe, and Jake Abel, Diane Kruger and Frances Fisher costar.

Will America embrace this tale of alien parasite love? Will people make lots of Trill jokes? Do people even remember what a Trill is? No one loves DS9… =(

via MTV, who now plays trailer premieres but still no music videos.

My alien parasite is Little Red Riding Hood???
