Well, the day started with all good intentions.
I got some cleaning done.
Got the washing on the go.
Went to collect tickets for an Unlimited showing of Kingsman on Monday evening before a quick trip to Tesco.
That’s where things took a bit of a turn.
I went to Tesco for some fresh bread for the kids school packups and came out with 3D Guardians of the Galaxy!!
Just…. couldn’t…… resist!!
OK, I said, better get some college work done.
I sat at the computer with all good intentions but I just couldn’t get my head into gear.
After an hour of playing around with the same questions and getting nowhere I decided it just wasn’t going to happen today.
So I sat a watched X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Then I started to have a little nose around the internet instead.
I’m so glad I did.
Information and pictures of my man Joel have been a little thin on the ground since he finished promoting Robocop and filming the last season of The Killing early in 2014.
He seems to have taken a break from things for a while to just enjoy life.
Any photos I do find are of him simply enjoying himself with friends.
He received the prestigious Eliason Merit Award from The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles for his ability to successfully raise Sweden’s profile within the arts and entertainment industry back in November 2014.
But I have been waiting with baited breath for a few films he has listed on his IMDB site.
One of them ‘Knight of Cups’ is directed by Terrence malick who is notorious for ‘over’ filming and then cutting the film to it’s final stage and in some cases totally cutting out an entire actors performance!! So I still have no idea if Joel made it to the final cut.
Another one is ‘Child 44’ Starring Tom Hardy.
This one is directed by Daniel Espinosa and as Daniel was responsible for bringing Joel to the States, I’m expecting good things with Joel.
The one I am currently really excited about is ‘Run All Night’ Starring Liam Neeson.
Hot on the heels of his success in the Taken trilogy, Liam Neeson plays an aging hitman who is forced to take on his brutal former boss to protect his estranged son and his family.
Joel plays his son Michael!! and I’ve just seen the Trailer.
I’m expecting this one around April.
After these though, I’m getting a little worried because IMDB are not listing him for any else.
Nothing has been announced.
Nothing is in pre-production.
No TV shows.
With two films completed and one in post production, I would hope to see something else crop up on his IMDB listing pretty soon.
Guess I’ll just have to be patient.
