Sorry about the break in blogs, Movers. We’re back this week with all new posts, so enjoy!
Happy 4th of July, Movers! Hope you all enjoyed yourselves yesterday. I spent the day soaking in the sun and neglected to put on extensive amounts of sun screen so I’m a bit red, but hey, I got the day off so I ain’t complaining. Can I get an “amen!”?
What better way to celebrate the Fourth than with talk of the ultimate American superhero – Superman. No, Not Henry Cavill – sorry ladies. I’m talking about Michael Shannon who plays the villainous General Zod in the latest Superman reboot, “Man of Steel”and who happens to grace the cover of Moves’ summer issue.
“Man of Steel” has continuously been killing it at the box office and Shannon has received rave reviews for his portrayal of the military general who tries to kill Superman and save the fictitious planet Krypton.
So in celebration of July 4th and America’s favorite superhero franchise, I’ve posted Mr. Shannon’s cover below. Visit http://www.newyorkmoves.com to see the rest of his feature!
In other news, HBO’s hit series “The Newsroom” is coming back for its second season on July 14th and I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t be happier. The show follows a major network newsroom led by its egotistical but powerhouse anchor Will McAvoy (played flawlessly by Jeff Daniels), the show’s fearless executive producer MaKenzie McHale (played by Emily Mortimer) and their motley crew of reporters and associate producers who are just as driven as their superiors, if not more. Each episode centers around the crew at News Night and their coverage of past current events piled a top a slew of personal plot lines.
Because Aaron Sorkin writes the show, you can count on witty banter and hilariously quick one-liners. It is entertaining to say the least. If you haven’t seen the Season One episode where they cover the day Former Senator Congresswomen Gabby Gifford gets shot in the head, than stop reading this and go watch it. And when you’re done, go watch the episode where the lovable news team covers the night U.S. Forces kill Osama Bin Laden – get ready to have goose pimples for the majority of the episode.
Can’t wait to see what current events Sorkin chooses to tackle in the second season. Hurry up, July 14th! What other series premieres are you looking forward to? Does anyone share in my “Newsroom” obsession? Leave your comments below!
In other news, British tennis player Andy Murray has a chance to make history this weekend as he competes in the Wimbledon finals. Wimbledon, which takes place every year in the U.K. has not seen a British winner in 77 years. Murray has a chance to change that this weekend against Serbian pro Novak Djokovic. Best of luck, Mr. Murray!
Until next week,
