HAPPY NEW YEAR
TOP TEN – 2014
IT’S GONNA BE A GOOD YEAR
To get you in the mood, here’s our
TOP TEN THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2014:
It was a close call, but with France’s 3-2 aggregate victory over Ukraine in November, the Bleus are heading to Brazil for the World Cup. France is sitting at 7th place in the odds at 20 to 1, and at the top of their group, it should be exciting to see them advance.
Toucher du bois! (Knock on wood in French!)
Another high-action film this year from the prolific Luc Besson, Lucy stars Scarlett Johansson as a drug mule living in Taiwan who accidentally ingests her product.
Side-effects include telekinesis, super-human intelligence, and immunity to pain.
According to Besson’s production company, EuropaCorp, Lucy will have the largest budget in the company’s history.
A former home to Coco Chanel and Ernest Hemingway, dined at by Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole in How to Steal a Million, and featured in Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night, the Hôtel Ritz has been well used by Paris. So it’s understandable that it had to finally close its doors for renovations in August 2012. The Ritz will reopen this July and we are very excited to see what they’ve done with the place.
There’s not a lot out yet about Woody Allen’s next movie Magic in the Moonlight. We know it’s a comedy set in the 1930s.
But when a cast includes Colin Firth and Emma Stone and is filmed on the French Riviera, how could it be bad?
