Must-See TV & films 2012 for P&P Actors

It's the New Year! You know what that means, right? New movies to look forward to from our P&P actors! Here are a  list of some P&P '05 alumni with a new movie starting this Winter/Spring through Summer/Fall (from January to December) of 2012.

But first...

Looks Like 2012 will be a big year for a lot of our favorite P&P actors from the 2005 film. First of all, we have a P&P reunion with the main leads Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen along with their director Joe Wright in the upcoming and much anticipated new film adaptation of Anna Karenina. You know, we'll be talking about it a lot here as soon as more news and info is released for that film. You've been forewarned, lol...Also, Keira Knightley has another new film, Seeking a Friend for the end of the World, a non-period drama for a change, with Steve Carell, which will be released on April 20th before AK film. Donald Sutherland has lots of new films including The Hunger Games on March 23rd, the first film of the series adapted into films. Rosamund Pike, once again, has a new film, Wrath of the Titans on March 30th with Sam Worthington (who previously co-starred with Keira in Last Night, last year). Judi Dench has two new films, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with another P&P co-star (who herself has her popular Emmy Award winning series, Downton Abbey's Season 2 premiering in the U.S. this month, January 8th) in May and a new Bond 23 film, Skyfall with Craig Daniel as Bond, which will focused on her character M (so that means will be seeing more of her in this film!) and will be in theaters November 9th. Kelly Reilly has two new films, Flight with Denzel Washington and Edwin Boyd with Scott Speedman (who previously co-starred with Rosamund Pike in last year's Barney's Version). Talulah Riley has a few new films, The Knot, White Frog, and The Liability. Jena Malone has several new films including Lonely Hunter, where she plays a lead role and a TV miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys. Tamzin Merchant has a TV miniseries, The Mystery of Edwin Drood premiering on PBS Masterpiece Classic on April 15th. And Carey Mulligan has The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio (who previously co-starred with Judi Dench in J. Edgar last year and Inception with Talulah Riley a year or two before that...) in theaters Christmas day.

Plus more P&P 05 actors with new films for this year, 2012 (and 2013) not mention above or listed here (too many to list), but these ones are the ones you'll be hearing/reading here the most!

Anyway, mark your calendar (for U.S. fans) as here are a list (thus far) of the following (Note: release dates are subject to change) ...

  1. Season 2 of 'Downton Abbey' does not disappoint! It's sure good to be back with this lovely cast of characters for more! Sure, there is some predictability in some of the sub-plots (that's to be expected when the foreshadowing was done so well in Season 1), but there are enough turns and twists to keep the series SO interesting! And best of all, the storyline of so many of the characters we know and love are brought back for further view: the world of Downton Abbey is so enthralling and captivating, that I know you will love it as I do. A chance to really delve into the lives of those involved, and a chance for more of their stories to play out: I'm happy to see that the U.S. version is the original U.K. UNEDITED version, and that they are making that clear...the full production is what is wanted here! I would HIGHLY recommend this follow-up, to a beloved first series: it measures up, and hits the mark enough to satisfy those of us who fell in love with 'Downton Abbey' as a series!
