Andrea Riseborough may still be a relative unknown but it’s looking more and more likely we’ll start to see her name everywhere. After turns in 2010 films “Never let Me Go” and “Made in Dagenham”, she spent 2011 promoting Madonna’s panned “W.E.“. But the British actress also signed on to some potential hits, including “Shadow Dancer” and “Welcome to the Punch”, both of which are set for release this year, and during the early months of 2012 won one of the lead roles in the Tom Cruise sci-fi flick “Oblivion”Read More
So, we were pretty hard on the first trailer for Tarsem Singh’s Snow White film “Mirror Mirror” and honestly, it seemed like maybe Relativity Media were starting to have doubts as well, since it’s been a few months since that release and there’s been nary a peep from the movie til now, even though it releases in less than two months. The jokes seem somewhat toned down (or better hidden) in the new trailer/behind-the-scenes clip, with an emphasis on Lily Collins and the “modernized” Snow White she embodies, but weRead More
Ryan Murphy has had huge success on the small screen, with TV hits from 90s show “Popular” to the current smash “Glee” so it’s no surprise to see him turn his talents to the big screen – and with the Tony award-winning play “The Normal Heart”. The largely biographical play by Larry Kramer centres on writer/activist Ned Weeks, and his attempts to raise HIV/AIDS awareness during the early 1980s in New York City. Mark Ruffalo signed on to play Weeks back in 2010, and now it looks like two ofRead More
The first trailer for “Mirror Mirror” has arrived, and… oy. The combined puppy dog charms of Lily Collins and Armie Hammer aren’t enough to overcome an especially grating Julia Roberts, disappointingly limp costumes and sets and dialogue full of puns so terrible I can’t even make a pun here to clever this sentence up. We were rooting for your Snow White movie, Tarsem Singh (even, at times, over that other one), but why are you making it so hard? Looks like Tarsem and Co. were aiming for family-friendly comedy adventureRead More
Yesterday we posted the first images of Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew in Tarsem Singh’s super colorful and outlandish still untitled “Snow White” film and today a plethora of new images have been released, courtesy of EW, People and Yahoo! Movies. The costumes get bigger and more colorful and Lily Collins, it must be said, looks like a perfect Snow White, delicate and beautiful and always wearing a radiant smile, even in the midst of sword training. Further details have also emerged from director Singh, who reveals that Julia RobertsRead More
The battle to be the fairest of them all rages on. Relativity continues to stay one step ahead of Universal in the tale of the dueling Snow Whites. While filming is still underway on Charlize Theron-Chris Hemsworth starrer “Snow White and the Huntsman”, today new looks at director Tarsem Singh’s still untitled “comedic adventure” take on the wayward Princess and her seven dwarf friends have been unveiled, giving us our first glimpse of Julia Roberts as a “relateable” Evil Queen and Armie Hammer’s dashing Prince Andrew, who attracts both princessRead More
