New Lucy Event - Stadium
of Fire Event - 2 July 2005
Produced on a grander-than-ever
scale, the 2005 Stadium of Fire, originated by Utah resident and world
class showman Alan Osmond, will follow the theme of "Family, Service,
and Celebration," with emphasis on the latter, according to Foundation
board chairman David McDougal.
Stadium of Fire producers announced Thursday that Debbie
Reynolds, Lou Diamond Phillips and Lucy Lawless will join actress and
singer Mandy Moore and Lonestar, one of country music's most popular
groups, in headlining this year's event
New Zealand-born superstar Lucy Lawless is best known in
America as the star of television's "Xena the Warrior Princess," but
her recent turns in "Locusts" won her plaudits from critics and the
general public. She has also appeared recently in "Euro Trips,"
"Spiderman," and "Tarzan."
The Stadium of Fire event is part of America's Freedom
Festival at Provo, Utah - For those not familiar with this event:
America's Freedom Festival at Provo, Utah, is one of the premier
patriotic celebrations in America. Its roots trace back to the 1870s,
more than two decades before Utah became a state.
The current Festival organization
is a private, non-profit, non-political foundation that plans and
organizes annual celebrations and commemorative events that go beyond a
one-day holiday. Today's Festival mounts over 25 annual events,
starting in March, culminating in the Independence Day celebration.
The purpose of the festival is to
commemorate our Day of Independence and celebrate the spirit of America
by creating festivities that instill a deeper sense of patriotism in
the hearts of those involved. Local and state governments, generous
sponsors, event chairs, and literally thousands of volunteers work
together to organize events for men, women, and children of all ages.
America's Freedom Festival at
Provo is recognized as one of America's biggest and best patriotic
attractions, drawing in hundreds of thousands of spectators every year
from all 50 states and other nations. It was named as one of North
America's Top 100 Events by Destinations Magazine and the American Bus

Cleopatra 2525 fans are in for a treat...July 19 sees
the release of Cleopatra 2525 - The Comples Series. Starring Jennifer
Sky as "Cleo", Victoria Pratt as "Rose", and Gina Torres (Firefly
and the last 2 Matrix films) as "Helen".
For those of you who aren't familiar with the show (no surprise, since
it was a syndicated series often tucked away into odd timeslots), the
main character, Cleopatra, was an exotic dancer from our times (2001)
who was accidentally cryogenically frozen until 2525, where she was
found and rescued by two female warriors. The three tough (and hot!)
ladies fight together against the monstrous heavily-armored airborne
robots which now rule the surface of the Earth. Cleo, Rose, and Helen
struggle to protect the human community, which has been driven
underground in order to survive.
There were 28 episodes of the series, with 22 of them being a half hour
long, and the final 6 stories moving to an hour-long format. Universal
brings them all to you on 3 DVDs (two of them are double-sided),
containing more than 12.5 hours of action and adventure. Cost is $49.98
SRP. Video is Full Frame, and audio is English Dolby Digital 2.0
Stereo. English and Spanish subtitles are also present. Stay tuned for
cover art; we'll bring that to you as soon as we get it! | Many

- A correction to yesterday's post about the ratings for Locusts. They are the "fast nationals", or overnight ratings. They are preliminary because they only take into account the big city markets. The more
accurate figures for Locusts are as follows:
"The surprise of the night was the CBS original movie Locusts starring Lucy Lawless, Xena herself, ringing up 12.7 million viewers. That's not too shabby for such a pitiful looking vehicle"

A USA Network Original Movie.
In this true tale of military murder, a highly decorated Marine who is desperate to cash in on his wife's life insurance policy plots to kill her. When James Chandler (Lou Diamond Phillips) of the Criminal
Investigation Division gets pulled into the convoluted murder case, he soon finds his own tragic past coming back to haunt him. While others give up hope and suggest Chandler do the same, with the help of the
murdered woman's grieving brother (Jason Priestley), Chandler goes beyond the call of duty to solve the crime - even bending protocol in his passionate determination to find the killer. Along with Military Police
Corporal Tara Jeffries (Victoria Pratt), Chandler finally blows the case wide open, bringing down a commanding officer - and uncovering an most unlikely hitman.
