Two and a Half Men Update

Another episode name change for Lucy's episode :) The following comes from TVNow.com

Lucy Lawless: Charlie Sheen's character (Charlie Harper) on the CBS hit sitcom Two and a Half Men seems to have a sexual conquest almost as often as he brushes his teeth. His hunt for the great lay seems to be the main reason that Charlie gets most of the attention on the show. Expect things to be a little different for him during the March 7 episode titled "It was 'Mame,' Mom." Lawless, that former butt-kicking Xena warrior chick, guest stars as the ex-wife of a gay advertising executive who makes Charlie's heart skip a beat. If anybody can tame Charlie, or at least put him in traction, Lawless can.

Xena Movie Update

  • Xena: To Be Or Not To Be?
    Xena is one of those characters who appeals equally to lesbians and gay men—both camps know a quality ass-kicking babe when they see one. So Romeo was heartened to learn that Katherine Fugate, screenwriter of the “When Fates Collide” episode of the now-dormant Xena: Warrior Princess, along with the series’ executive producer Robert G. Tapert, is working on a script for a big-screen Xena feature. But don’t get too excited just yet. Right now it’s only a script, and there’s no way of knowing if that script will become a bought script and then a greenlighted script and then a shooting script. One thing’s certain, though—if it all comes to pass, it shouldn’t be anyone’s but Lucy Lawless’ to turn down first.

Boogeyman

Boogeyman scares up $33 million at the box office

Speaking of Boogeyman, Sony’s next release in the top ten finishes second, giving Sony the number one and two spots at the weekend box office. Boogeyman grossed a larger than expected $10.8 million, down a not-bad (for poorly made horror) 43%. Last weekend we heard that Boogeyman cost Sony and Ghost House Pictures $20 million to make, but now sources are saying that the production cost was more like $7 million, which only increases the profits on this one. So far, the horror flick has grossed $33.3 million, and will be another successful title for Sam Raimi and the staff at Ghost House Pictures, producers of the very successful The Grudge (which debuted on home video last weekend).

Xena DVD News

This month's issue of New DVD World (Italian) has an article about the release of FIN The Director's Cut. The DVD is Region 2 (which means Region 4 DVD players can also view it). It's in English or Italian with the same extras as the Region 1 version.

The magazine is 8,90 euro. Inside the magazine there are two pages of presentation of the dvd, with a lot of emphasis on the lesbian success of the show (and of LL in particular). For (I guess) European fans who fancy this dvd, the editor's website is www.ndw.it If you would like a copy of the magazine please email me and I will pass it on to Storm who has volunteered to purchase for anyone who wishes. Postage plus cost of magazine.

The following is from Creation Entertainment - this is an absolute MUST get for all fans. The con was just fantastic. Lucy and Renee rocked the house down.

The 10th Anniversary Official Xena Convention is now but a treasured memory but surely it was the best gathering yet! Everyone could feel the spirit of celebration in the air: this event had it all: our amazing superstars Lucy and Renee, and an equally wonderful line-up of supporting stars and production folk, including Rob Tapert. And in more good news, over $30,000 was raised for some very worthwhile charities!

The response from attendees was unbelievable and we have gotten such a huge amount of favorable e-mails that this event will be hard to top ever (but we sure are gonna try!) Until next year's convention, we are happy to offer two great brand new DVDs covering the 2005 event, shot and edited professionally!

The first DVD covers LUCY and RENEE's once in a lifetime performance, including that kooky and fabulous singing and dancing entrance out of the giant cake! The second DVD offers up clips of the rest of the guests and some cool backstage interviews.

Two And a Half Men

The following is from Sharon with an update about the filming of Two and a Half Men

  • For those of who have already gotten tickets or thinking of getting same to watch the filming at Warner Bros. studios, Lucy just let us know that her scenes are being filmed earlier on a separate set and will not be part of the normal shooting. She will be coming to the show on Friday (when the regular filming takes place) to take a final bow with the cast and say hi.

Boogeyman Update

According to Bloody-Disgusting.com / E! News, Boogeyman is set to get a sequel:

  • Barry Watson told the reporters "I'm trying to convince Sam to make it in New Zealand again"! - short and sweet. 'Boogeyman' made an estimated $19.5 million this past weekend. Set in Pennsylvania, the story tells the haunting tale of a young man traumatized by memories of terrible events he experienced in his childhood bedroom and who, years later, reluctantly returns home to face his fears of a monstrous entity that could be real or merely a figment of his imagination.

Boogeyman Update

  • The following is from BoxOffice Prophets - Friday Box Office Analysis
    5 February 2005

    As it happens, the massive and relentless marketing campaign combined with the smart tactic of attaching the aforementioned Raimi's name to the film helped Boogeyman to manage an impressive $8.5 million this weekend. Traditionally, Super Bowl weekend has not been kind to new releases, and this year should be no exception. A 2.4 Friday-to-Sunday multiplier would give Boogeyman a $20.4 million debut weekend. It should be noted that a smaller number isn't out of the question, though.

    Cheap thrills overcome big holes in 'Boogeyman'
    Lucy "Xena: Warrior Princess" Lawless isn't as distracting as one might think playing Jensen's mother, but most of the other actors in this film are either forgettable or memorably bad. Then again, most people don't go to movies called "Boogeyman" for the acting, or the realism. They go for the Boogeyman.

    Then there's his mom, who's played by "Xena" star Lucy Lawless. Lawless only makes it five minutes into the movies before dropping dead. And for some reason, even though she couldn't be older than 50 years old, she's made up to look like she's 143. Must be some sort of reverse Botox or something

Boogeyman Update

Review from Michelle:

  • Bonni and myself had the opportunity to attend a pre-screening of Boogyman last night.  In my opinion this movie scared me more then the Grudge.  If you were scared of the dark as a child, then this movie will remind you of what you were afraid of.  The cast was most excellent in this film.  The music was great.  The male parts of our audience were jumping in their seats at the scariest moments.  I really recommend this film to all who are fans of old fashion horror and suspense.  It is rated PG-13 but if you have kids that are scared of the dark you may want to wait to take them to see it.   I felt the need to share this little review due to I enjoyed the movie so much.

AIDS Bracelet Update

  • We just wanted to give you all an update on the “For the Greater Good” bracelets. 
    First of all we would like to extend our deepest and most sincere thanks to all of you!  We have done way better than we had hoped and it is still not over!  When this started it was thought that we would sell about 100,  those first 100 went like hot cakes, so Jackie ordered another, bigger batch.  We hoped that if those sold we could raise about $400 for The Actor’s Fund – AIDS Initiative. To date, we have sold about 475 bracelets,  and yesterday, Jackie sent The AIDS Initiative a check for $800 - For the Greater Good!!!  with more to come - Wahoo!!!!  We are in our 4th batch and will continue selling them until we find that everyone who wants one has one. Jackie is planning on heading to Seattle in May where she will have them there, or you can still order them through Papal at Xenarocks@people.com.   We are so thrilled with the response that we received, you all rock!!!

  • There is a brief mention of Lucy in the Ventura County Star newspaper
    Ventura County Star - 2 February 2005 Tumor named 'Frank' to be tested
    Boy to undergo dangerous biopsy to see if growth is still malignant
    At 10 a.m. today, 9-year-old David Dingman-Grover, a frail wisp of a boy, will go to sleep at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. While he is under -- possibly dreaming of Lucy Lawless, the Princess Warrior who gave him a thrill at Christmas 2003 with a surprise phone call -- doctors will insert sensitive instruments through his nose to the tumor at the base of his skull, a tumor he has named Frank. They will snip bits of the tumor, which will be examined in a biopsy.

Locusts! Update

  • The following is from TV Now - Celebrity News - 1 February 2005
     Celebrity News Date: Tuesday, February 1 Lucy Lawless: If the "Xena" star expects to survive her next film shoot, she'll need a gigantic can of Raid insect repellant. Later this month, she'll head down to New Orleans to begin filming Locusts!, a new CBS movie about a deadly breed of bio engineered locusts that form multiple swarms and cause hell on Earth earlier than predicted in the Bible. The thriller's executive producer Robert M. Sertner is a big believer in special effects that put his actors in the middle of the action. When I interviewed him about his last CBS disaster flick, Category 6: Day of Destruction, he told me that a bank of wind machines couldn't create the force he needed to show the power of hurricane winds, so he had a jet engine delivered to the set so they could blow actors and props all over the lot. Come to think of it, Lawless will need more than Raid to survive this Sertner project. Locusts! will debut on CBS Sunday, April 24 at 9pm. Many thanks to Barbara Davies for the news

Deliver X Video by Deb Abbott & Wendy Woody (Message from Wendy)

  • Deborah and I are working on the DVDs of "DeliverX" to send out for those who have asked about them.  We're adding some extra features so it might take a little bit but not too long.  We're not sure about the cost yet but whatever the amount ends up being, after we take out the cost of actually making and mailing each DVD, the rest will go to World Vision, the company Lucy just did a video for, and their Tsunami relief.

Lucy's Locusts! Update - A note from Lucy about Locusts! (via Sharon Delaney)

Message from Lucy:

"I chose it because it was surprisingly well written and looked like  a lot of fun. The unexpected pleasure was meeting the producers in person. Not only do I feel they know how to turn out a good show, but they will set up the kind of atmosphere where I, and all the crew can do our best work. Also this is the kind of classic family fare that I grew up on. I remember the appointments my family made with 'Fantastic Voyage' and 'The Birds' and 'Triffids', and I'd love to be part of that."

AUSXIP XenaMedia

  • Added transcript and scan from Woman's Day - 7 February 2005 - To and 'Fro. Strutting her stuff in a giant Afro wig and skimpy, fringed hotpants, Lucy Lawless was barely recognisable when she jumped out of a giant cake at the 10th Annual Xena Warrior Princess convention at the Burbank Airport Hilton in California.
  • Added transcript and scan from NZ New Idea - 5 February 2005 - Party Princess - Lucy Lawless proved she's stil got the legs to keep men looking when she popped out of a giant birthday cake at a Xena convention. The warrior princess emerged in a skimpy bikini and a black afro wig, closely followed by Renee O"Conner, who played her sidekick Gabrielle on the show.

One Weekend A Month Update

  • Mercury News - 24 January 2005 ``One Weekend a Month'' shows Meg (played by Renee O'Connor of ``Xena: Warrior Princess'') making a series of increasingly desperate phone calls to try to find someone to take care of her children while she's at war. With increasingly long National Guard deployments in Iraq, this under-documented problem has become a looming crisis in the military's ranks. Escobar's film powerfully illuminates the problem.
  • The Park Record - 29 January 2005 2005 Sundance Film Festival Winners
    The Shorts Jury awarded Honorable Mentions in Short Filmmaking to ONE WEEKEND A MONTH; RYAN (Canada), SMALL TOWN SECRETS,TAMA TU (New Zealand) and VICTORIA PARA CHINO.

Ghost House Pictures Update

  • Raimi Holding Quite a Grudge
    Sam Raimi, who produced "The Grudge,' is wondering about Japanese humor. His horror films, including "The Evil Dead,' are laced with black humor, but "The Grudge,' which was based on a Japanese film, "Ju-on,' and made by the same director, Takashi Shimizu, is downright creepy.

One Weekend A Month Update

 

Subtext Virtual Season

The fifth episode of Season 10 , "The Gift" is now available!

After a lot of discussion on the SVS staff's part, we have decided to bring Season 10 to an early close. We will be airing the next 3 episodes but will be ending Season 10 on February 13th.

The past several months have seen real life interfere with all our staff and it's just become too difficult for us to continue and still keep the quality that we all demand from ourselves. After airing the last 3 episodes of Season 10, we will have 'aired' 55 episodes and hope y'all have enjoyed them as much as we have.

This isn't the end though because we have decided to produce 2 to 4 'movies' a year starting this summer. This will allow us to continue something we really enjoy but also give us time to take care of real life too!

We hope you will join us as we continue Xena & Gabrielle's adventures this summer.
