Under the glare of glamour: Francis Lawrence - Water for Elephants, Scott Stewart - Priest, W-inds You and I & more! - in Weekly Music and Movies Update!


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com.

Written by the best selling novelist Sara Gruen and now adapted to a movie, Water for Elephants displays the darkness and cruelty in the human heart and the journey of a boy searching for himself behind the glamour and excitement in the circus. Robert Pattinson sheds his vampire fangs and left his immortality behind in Twilight to play the complex character Jacob Jankowski.

Jacob gave up his Ivy league education to join a circus, only to find out how brutal it is. The circus owner August (Christopher Waltz) treats his animals with cruelty, but feels immense remorse afterwards, and he treats his wife the same way. The tense relationship between the three is soon stretched to breaking point when circus members are kicked out of the rail cars and Jacob finds himself falling in love with the circus owner's wife (Reese Witherspoon).

The war between vampires and humans blazes in the near future. To control the vampire hives, the Church sends armed troops called Priests to war against the blood suckers. When a Priest's (Paul Bettany) niece is kidnapped by a hive, he sets off on a bloodied road, only to shed more blood on his way.

Gently cooling like the summer breeze, W-inds uses crystalline sounds to accompany their soothing melody. You & I is a very special song as it's their 30th single and marks the 10th year anniversary of their career.

Visit the beach with the band, the Limited Edition carries the music video of the song and the making-of clips. The regular editions come with a third track. Type A comes with Humanizer while Type B comes with I vs I.
