Oh how I am so thankful for Yavannauk, precious fan who is dedicated to getting all the amazing photos of Colin Morgan when I cannot and if you click photo credit link above, you can see loads and loads more of photos from the set. So yeah, my chances of crossing the ocean to see him on set right now is impossible, but seeing him thankfully is not — because lookie here at these:
Isn’t he gorgeous… and look at his rising star. We announced yesterday, he was returning to television in the second series/season of The Fall. However, right now, he is on set of the Testament of Youth, a film based upon Vera Brittain’s biography.
Testament of Youth will feature Hayley Atwell, Kit Harington, Emily Watson, Dominic West, Alicia Vikander, Colin Morgan and so many more names you should recognize if you’re an anglophile. It is being produced in conjunction with BBC Films and Heyday Films. The story synopsis on IMDb merely states: A British girl recalls coming of age during World War I.
However, this story is so much more:
Testament of Youth has been acclaimed as a classic for its description of the impact of World War I on the lives of women and the middle-class civilian population of Great Britain. The book shows how the impact extended into the postwar years. It is also considered a classic in feminist literature for its depiction of a woman’s pioneer struggle to forge an independent career in a society only grudgingly tolerant of educated women.
I am so excited about all this news and getting to see the photos coming from this set. Colin Morgan will always remain a favorite of mine from his performance on Doctor Who and Merlin. So much is going on with that Merlin cast too. Have you seen how they’re dispersing all over the silver screen. Woohoo!

For real, you will want to follow this man. He always is entertaining… ALWAYS. Love it when he talks, muses and of course, you know he will post adorable photos of his kitties! So here you go. My PSA of the day… go follow Robert Downey Jr. on Twitter.
And he asks… nay he demands we talk to him in his very first tweet. Of course he does. I have no problem with that. Do you?

Guys, this video has been on repeat and I can’t stop laughing.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have been doing press for their movie The Amazing Spiderman 2 and this – OMG. They dance.
Synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

We’re all excited for Guardians of the Galaxy, and it’s even better that we get a first look at it from MTV.
The movie is from the Marvel Universe, with lesser known characters. We’re loving the first look – especially cause it gives us some Chris Pratt.
PLOT OUTLINE: Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must find a way to rally the quartet of ragtag rivals hot on his trail to save the universe.
The movie hits theaters August 1, 2014.
