A big Luke Evans post!

New THE RAVEN Trailer

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting… I’m definitely interested in the upcoming James McTeigue’s The Raven, so I’m thrilled we finally have the reason to write about this movie again.
That reason is an international trailer for the period crime-thriller which has an extraordinary cast on board.

The Raven stars John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe who joins forces with a young Baltimore detective played by Luke Evans, to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders.

On the other hand, let’s not forget the romantic side of the movie – Poe must find that mad guy before he takes out the woman Poe loves.
And, as you will see in this trailer, catching the serial killer is never an easy thing, it’s quite creepy actually.
The film also stars Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen and it is set to hit the theaters on March 9th, 2012.

The New Action Man

Before glimpsing a single paycheck, every actor dreams of being christened “a rising star”. It’s a universally acknowledged stamp of industry approval, and more often than not, a prelude to big money. But for Luke Evans, whose star is undoubtedly rocketing skyward, the label is losing its luster. “I’m wondering how long it’s going to last”, says the 32-year-old Welsh actor, “because I find it quite funny. How long can you stay ‘rising’?”

In Evan’s case, not much longer. For starters, he has been working since his early twenties, leading the 2002 West End production of Boy George’s musical, Taboo.  He’d eclipsed 30 when he scored his first film audition, thanks to casting directors who took notice of his focused and sensitive performance in Peter Gill’s Donmar Warehouse production of Small Change. “It wasn’t me searching out movies, it just sort of happened,” Evans recalls. “I was very content working in the theater. It’s where I learnt my craft.”

Then, quite suddenly, he morphed into an action star. In October, he appeared as Aramis, one of the titular swashbucklers in Paul W. S. Anderson’s chop-socky thriller The Three Musketeers, and three weeks later, as a vengeful Zeus in Tarsem Singh’s phantasmagorical myth redux, Immortals. This March, he’ll travel as inspector Emmett Fiels to 19th-century Baltimore, where he’ll help John Crusack’s Edgar Allan Poe track a serial killer in The Raven. “I’m not quite sure how it happened, to be honest,”Evans says of his macho screen personas. “I never thought this Welsh boy who liked to sing would end up doing action roles.”

Over the next year, he will jet back and forth to New Zealand, where Peter Jackson is shooting consecutive films based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Evans will play Bard the Bowman, the eagle-eyed archer. The las time Jackson put a bow and arrow into the hands of a dashing young Brit, the Brit became the global star known as Orlando Bloom. Is Evans worried that The Hobbit will wipe out what remains of his anonymity? “My saving grace is that I live in London,” he says, “where people don’t really give a fuck.” – BEN BARNA
