Portrait of Love paints a picture on Hallmark Channel!

Portrait of Love Hallmark Channel

That’s not a portrait, that’s a sculpture!

Hallmark Channel’s new movie Portrait of Love (formally known as Heart of the Matter) is that old chestnut about a woman from the big city who returns all successful to her small town and yet suddenly is pulled in by that love junk and may end up throwing it all away for some dude she dated in high school. Just take a look at your high school dates on Facebook and where they are now to see how likely that prospect is (YEESH!)

A prominent fashion photographer returns to her small town roots at the request of a friend. Surrounded by both memories and loved ones, she must consider a choice between a successful future and rekindling both the love of her life and of her home.

Can’t women have both? Nope, you gots to be choosing one or the other, sorry. Them’s the rules!

Portrait of Love stars Bree Williamson (A Beginner’s Guide to Snuff) as April Littleton, Jason Dohring (Prehysteria! 2) as Luke Dwyer, Frances Fisher (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta!) as Doll Dwyer, Ella Thomas (Surrogates) as Julia Robbins, Corbin Bernsen (Christian Mingle) as Tyler Mason, Caitlin Carmichael (Wiener Dog Internationals) as Jess Dwyer, Cassius Willis (Lakeview Terrace) as Frank Robbins, and Cissy Wellman (Jane Doe: Vanishing Act) as Karen Waverly.

Portrait of Love is directed by K.T. Donaldson (High Plains Invaders). It is written by Michael Votel, Jr., Matt Marx (This seems to be the first film written for both), and Jennifer Notas (Christmas Under Wraps) It premieres March 14th on Hallmark Channel!

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… =(
