    First look: British newcomer Barnes brings sexy back to 'Narnia'

    Disney Enterprises
    The adventure continues: Ben Barnes, who had a small role in
    last summer's Stardust, has the lead in Prince Caspian.
    He plays the rightful heir of the Narnia throne.

    The first film inspired by C.S. Lewis' seven-part Chronicles of Narnia had much to offer beyond The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. There was the faun (James McAvoy's sweet Mr. Tumnus), the talking beavers and Santa, too.

    But with a quartet of mostly unseasoned child actors as the Pevensie kids, the 2005 release was severely lacking in an elixir that fuels many fantasy epics: sex appeal.

    But that was then. This is wow. Ben Barnes, 26, the British newcomer who plays the title role in Prince Caspian, has visitors to the film's Internet Movie Database message board virtually drooling.
    The graduate of London's Kingston University can't believe he's playing the main character from one of his favorite childhood tales.

    "It still hasn't sunk in," he says. "It's been a whirlwind."

    One minute, Barnes was doing an audition tape in London. The next, he was in L.A., charming director Andrew Adamson. A couple of weeks later, he stood on Narnia's set in New Zealand.

    Anna Popplewell, who co-stars as Susan, says Barnes might need to invest in bodyguards soon.

    "He's very gorgeous," says the actress, 19.

        I am very excited about this movie. Prince Caspian wasn't my favorite book of the Narnia series. But I think the movie version will kick some serious butt.

            I don't remember Caspian ever kicking anything. He mostly leads from behind. Even on the Dawn Treader he never really fights anyone. Mostly he is young, honest and determined.

              Swords Raised for Prince Caspian
              by Gregory Ellwood
              Hollywood Hitlist, MSN.com

              After its predecessor, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," surprised industry experts by grossing more than $290 million in the United States alone, you'd think the media would be taking "Prince Caspian" far more seriously. But the potential blockbuster seems amazingly under the radar compared with May's other openers. Therefore, it's not surprising that Disney sat your intrepid columnist down with director Andrew Adamson and producer Mark Johnson to watch a good 45 minutes of the upcoming flick. And, not surprisingly, there is a lot about the new movie for audiences to get excited about.
              The verdict: "Caspian" looks to be a noticeable improvement over "Wardrobe" and should win over some moviegoers who wanted more "Lord of the Rings"-style scope to the "Narnia" franchise.

              Full Story (with some minor spoilers): http://movies.msn.com/movies/hitlist/02-26-08?GT1=7701

              I have to agree with Ellwood. Except for hardcore Narnia fans, there doesn't seem to be a lot of buzz or anticipation for 'Prince Caspian.' I haven't seen much advertising either. Of course, after all the bombast over 'Pirates' the last two years, anything less for Disney's major summer live-action release seems rather insignificant. Is this low-key approach (for now) the smart way to go, especially with 'Caspian' in its second week of release going up against 'Indy 4'?

              Of course, the trailer for last year's 'POTC3' didn't premiere until mid-March (the trailer for 'Caspian' debuted last December), so there's still plenty of time to build momentum. I just expected a harder push for a movie that's going to be crushed by Spielberg and Lucas a week after it premieres.

                I'm now very nervous about this. I understand creative license but what the heck is this about Peter not being able to adjust to living in the real world? I hate it when they change the fundamentals of a character just because they think they need more drama.

                    I agree. It seems that hollywood, even when handed a "tried and true" story that has proved popular through multiple generations, can't help but put their own tweaks into things for "relevence" or "additional drama" and it usually ends up ruining the core of what made the source materiel so good.

                      OH my gosh, have you heard that they've decided to make all the Telmarines Spanish to highlight the conflict between them and the English Pevensies.... can we say politically incorrect anyone?????

                        I am not much of a TV watcher and yet I have seen the ad for this many times now so I am not sure what you mean by "low-key approach" and not seen much advertising.

                        At least once a night on network TV I see an ad for it and on Disney Channel they show a "behind the scenes" type of ad almost twice an hour during their 6pm to 8pm time slot.

                        I agree they will probably push Indy 4 more/harder but then the Indy franchise has far more potential to attract crowds outside the fantasy genre than Narnia has and Indy has more history.

                          Just a question, when was sexy ever in Narnia to begin with?
                          I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

                            When they started making movies.

                            Hollywood has a reputation for hiring the really really good looking people in the world.

                            I was worried for a bit. Because Caspian in the movie poster looks all sexy and stuff. My brother and I were like "WTF?" Caspian is supposed to be a bit of a geek and a little younger in the books, if I remember correctly.

                            And . . . *shows off shiny new banner I made*

                              Who are you going to sell more tickets (books, DVDs, merchandise, etc.)worldwide with - the kid you makes your Jamba Juice drink in the strip mall or the best actor found in a multi-continent search that fits a specific type envisioned by the director, producers and studio with hundreds of millions of dollars on the line?
