My husband is quite a television connoisseur, so he was extremely excited when he heard that the third installment of one of his favorite TV specials, The Librarian, was going to be shown on TNT on Sunday, December 7, 2008, at 8:00 PM (EST). He was even more excited when I got my hands on a preview copy of the film! He popped it into the DVD player as soon as it hit his hands. Fortunately, for both of us, the movie did not disappoint. Mike loved it and said it was even better than the previous one. In case you’re wondering what all the excitement is all about, here’s what happens in the third installment of The Librarian:
The world is in danger of being overrun by vampires, and the only person who can prevent it from happening is Flynn Carsen in the third installment of TNT’s hugely successful Librarian franchise, starring Noah Wyle (ER). THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE, co-starring Bob Newhart (Elf, The Bob Newhart Show) and Jane Curtin (Our Town, 3rd Rock from the Sun), sends the bookish hero Flynn to New Orleans, where he tries to undo a nefarious vampire plot and rescue a kidnapped professor (Bruce Davison -– X-Men, Knight Rider) with the help of a beautiful chanteuse (Stana Katic -– Feast of Love).
THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE was directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), who also directed the second Librarian installment, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines. The story opens with the kidnapping of Professor Lazlo (Davison), a brilliant language and history expert at the University of Bucharest. Elderly and using a crutch to walk, he is taken hostage by a group that wants to force him to locate the Judas Chalice. They hope to use the cup -– which was made from the 30 pieces of silver Judas received for betraying Jesus -– to bring the notorious Prince Vlad Dracul back to life and foist evil on the world.
Meanwhile, Flynn heads to New Orleans for what he hopes will be a vacation. He has been summoned through mysterious dreams by Simone Renoir (Katic), a gorgeous New Orleans jazz club singer. She has made it her mission to keep the location of the Judas Chalice a secret so it won’t fall into the wrong hands. When the secret is accidentally revealed and the cup taken, Flynn and Simone must do everything in their power to prevent Vlad Dracul from casting the entire world into shadow. Helping from the sidelines are Judson (Newhart), the enigmatic and always surprising head of the Library, and Charlene (Curtin), the extremely serious-minded, no-nonsense personnel director.
The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice is action-packed and will keep the whole family riveted to their seats. And if you missed previous installments in the series, you’ll still love this one.
