M. A. Larson - Princezna ​Bojovnice
Román ​amerického spisovatele, televizního a filmového scenáristy M. A. Larsona začíná jako pohádka O perníkové chaloupce: bezejmenná dívka ztracená v tajemném, temném lese spatří v dálce světlo. Když přijde blíž, zjistí, že je to rozsvícené okénko. Chaloupka ale není z perníku a žije v ní mocná, nestvůrná čarodějnice, která tam vězní mladíka. Dívce se ho podaří osvobodit a pak spolu uprchnou. Mladík má namířeno do věhlasné Pennyroyal Academy, školy, která z odvážných chlapců vychovává opravdové rytíře a z dívek nebojácné, nelítostné princezny-bojovnice. Svět totiž stojí na pokraji války: všude se šíří krutá moc draků a čarodějnic. Dívka beze jména se do Akademie také zapíše a podrobí se tvrdému výcviku. Postupně přitom odkrývá pravdu o sobě, o tom, kým vlastně je a kdo byla její rodina, pozná sílu přátelství i nenávisti, lidský soucit i nelidskou krutost. Jak se válka přibližuje, hrdinka zjišťuje, že boj mezi princeznami a čarodějnicemi se jí osobně dotýká mnohem víc, než si kdy dovedla představit. Filmová práva podle knižní předlohy zakoupila společnost Pacifi c Standard patřící známé herečce Reese Witherspoonové.

James Corden - May ​I Have Your Attention, Please?
As ​far back as he can remember James Corden has only ever wanted to be in one place: in front of you, doing something to make you laugh, cry, shout, or giggle uncontrollably. At the age of 4, he grandstanded throughout his baby sister's christening, standing on a chair in front of the whole congregation, pulling faces and cracking everyone up. Despite himself, the vicar was impressed. And from then on he couldn't get enough of the spotlight, even when it always seemed to avoid him. Throughout his teens, he and his Dad trudged up and down towards London, getting closer and closer to landing a gig, only to be told 'No' at the last stage. But he never gave up and soon found his whole life turned upside down and inside out by his experience as one Alan Bennett's History Boys. From that moment forth, he's never looked back. May I Have Your Attention Please? is the warm, cheeky, surprisingly honest and hilarious story of one of our most popular comedy talents. From his antics as one of the founding players of his high-school's first ever rugby team to gaining recognition in the West End, to nationwide fame as the loveably loud Smithy in the award-winning Gavin and Stacey, this is a tenderly told story of what it's like to try, try and try again and - happily - get there in the end.
