The Host - Featurette #3: Meet Wanda.
“A parasitic alien soul is injected into the body of Melanie Stryder. Instead of carrying out her race's mission of taking over the Earth, “Wanda” (as she comes to be called) forms a bond with her host and sets out to aid other free humans.”
Saoirse Ronan opens up about her character, Wanda, in this new featurette for “The Host”.
“She [author Stephenie Meyer] kind of left it up to me, which was actually really nice, and I thought it was kind of an amazing thing for an author to do, because sometimes authors of books they, which is fair enough, they feel like this is their story and they should give advice when they can, but Stephenie was great,” the 18-year-old Irish actress recently told THR about her roles in the film.
Saoirse added, “She kind of stepped back from all that when it came to the actors.”
“The Host” opens March 29th!
The Wizards Return: Alex Vs Alex - Full Preview.
“The Wizards Return: Alex Vs Alex” premieres March 15th @ 8PM ET on Disney Channel.
130127 - My “Samsung Galaxy S III Mini”.
I've bought a Samsung Galaxy S III Mini smartphone!
It's in the color “Metallic/Pebble Blue”.
Angelica came here yesterday with my new mobile. Her brother works for Samsung so I bought the mobile through him, so the mobile was a bit cheaper than it would have been if I would have bought it in the store or online. So thanks to him I saved a little money on the mobile.
Angelica obviously knows me so she chose the blue one when her brother asked her which color I wanted, since she knows that blue is my favorite color. The mobile is available in white and blue but I think most people have the white one and I originally wanted the blue one, so Angelica did good!
I've had my previous Samsung mobile since 2010 so I felt that it was time for me to get a new mobile. My previous mobile is still 100% working, but it's a bit schizophrenic and that really got on my nerves sometimes. I think the mobile have the first version ever of Android, if it even have one. The only apps that's working are the ones that were already in the mobile when I got it (which was Facebook, Google, Myspace & maybe some more). I could only download apps to Facebook and Ebuddy. Every other site I had to visit on Internet and some sites never worked or the mobile didn't show everything that was on the site. So it was obvious that my mobile was a bit old and I actually want to have some apps on my mobile and since I couldn't have that on my previous mobile, I bought a new one.
The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini have really good features and the mobile itself have gotten really good reviews, so that's why I bought it. I started to look through Samsung's website last week to see which mobile I wanted to get and the Galaxy S III Mini was among the ones I'd looked on. And it was the cheapest mobile among the ones I'd looked on so that's also why I bought it. It was a pretty good price for a new mobile and on Samsung's website it's listed as new along with 2 other mobiles so I guess that it's among the Top 3 newest smartphones by Samsung.
Spring Breakers - Trailer.
“Four college girls (Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, & Rachel Korine) who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer (James Franco) who wants them to do some dirty work.”
The French trailer is a bit different than the American trailer that I posted, so you can watch the French trailer here.
The movie premieres on March 22, 2013 in the US.
130114 - Books.
I picked up my 2 books from the post-office today.
“The Casual Vacancy” by J.K. Rowling. ♥
BOOK DESCRIPTION: “When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.”
“Harry Potter Film Wizardry” by Warner Bros. ♥
BOOK DESCRIPTION: “Immerse yourself in the world of the spectacular Harry Potter film series, and learn why Yule Ball ice sculptures never melt, where Galleons, Sickles and Knuts are really "minted", how to get a Hippogriff to work with actors, about the inspiration behind Hogwarts castle, and why Dementors move the way they do. Written and designed in collaboration with the cast and crew that brought J.K Rowling's celebrated novels to the silver screen, Harry Potter: Film Wizardry delivers an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the wizarding world by sharing filmmaking secrets, unpublished photography and artwork, and exclusive stories from the stars.

I've been wanting the “Harry Potter Film Wizardry” book for years now so I'm so happy that I finally own the book. The book contains 164 pages with photos and information from all the Harry Potter movies. The book also contains removable props that you've seen in the movies, like: Acceptance Letter from Hogwarts, Marauders Map, Yule Ball Invite, Weasley Wizard Wheezes Catalogue and more. ♥
121231 - New Year's Eve 2012/2013.
As I wrote in my earlier blog-post about New Year's Eve, I had dinner with my Mom before I had to leave. She had made it extra cozy by litting some candles.
We drank this Pommac at our dinner. It was very hard to open it but my Mom made it.
Dessert at Johanna and her husband's place.
I had my camera with me yesterday but I didn't think about it and I forgot to take more photos... But I think that's a good thing; even though I don't have any photos from the rest of my New Year's Eve, that's proof that I had too much fun to think about taking photos and I definitely did have fun.
I hope you also had a great New Year's Eve and once again I wish you all a Happy New Year!
