Hendricks Comes Alive: Five Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | April 7, 2013 | Comments ()


Important Stuff, yo.

5. Christina Hendricks Was Stunningly Styled for Flare Magazine.




Good lord, look what this woman could be if she only had a proper stylist! I don't know if you people follow her on the Twitter, but please, send her the message: Get Help Dressing, Now. H/T Figgy.

4. Michael Shannon Reminded Us of His Magnificence.





Behold the glorious Michael Shannon. The man is so beautiful and talented, I almost have no words..well, maybe a few. These new photos are from The Iceman in which Shannon stars as infamous contract killer Richard Kuklinski, rumored to have killed more than 100 (possibly up to 250) people. His wife (Winona Ryder) and family had no idea the man they lived with led a double life, stalking and murdering, almost for sport. The Iceman also stars Chris Evans, Ray Liotta, James Franco, Stephen Dorff, Robert Davi and David Schwimmer; it opens in limited release this September.

3. Snowpiercer Passport Photos Gave Us Another Peek into Bong Joon-ho's Upcoming Science Fiction Thriller.










This adaptation of French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige stars Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer and Kang-ho Song as the last of humanity; survivors of a new ice age hurtling to nowhere on a class-separated train. A revolution brews...and we pray for Swinton to kick some ass. Heck, at this point, I'd pay to see a trailer. Snowpiercer debuts sometime later this year.

2. The Arthur Newman Trailer Left Us Feeling Confused.

On the one hand: Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, on the other: Golf. British actors...American accents. Could be funny...music bad. (Official-type synopsis: Family man fakes his own death, starts a new life as golf pro (?), and meets woman also running from her own problems.) I leave you to your head scratching.

1. Jessica Chastain Joined Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak.


Horror-master del Toro heads back to his roots with a "modern ghost story" he co-wrote. We haven't got much on the story details as yet; "a woman begins to suspect her husband might not be who he pretends to be." Del Toro co-wrote the script, and said it is influenced by The Shining, Exorcist and The Omen. With the cast he's assembled, Emma Stone, Benedict Cumberbatch, Charlie Hunnam...and now Jessica Chastain, I think we can safely allow our hopes to rise just a leetle bit.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) ain't afraida no ghosts.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Justin Kuhn

    It's pretty cool how these Snowpiercer character posters are done like beat-to-shit passports.

  • denesteak

    I want all three of those dresses

  • koko temur

    I know its somewhat missing the point, but, i envy her posture so, soooo much. Do you have any idea how hard is to stand straight with those barrels of bliss dragging you downwards? Hendricks is my personal hero.

  • ,

    Hendricks is a beautiful woman, but jeezuz, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I am having difficulty processing those sentiments from this particular source. I think you broke my brain.

  • I bet there's scores of designers just dying to throw free shit for Christina Hendricks to wear. But you can't get that stuff unless you hire a professional to deal with it for you, and she just refuses for some damn reason. There are plenty of designers who are brilliant at dressing curvier bodies and she's not taking advantage of them, and it's a damn shame.

  • Mrs. Julien

    But the free stuff is for a sample size and she needs custom. That means she has no excuse for big premieres or awards shows, but other than that she's kind of SOL. This, I might point out, is when a smart well-to-do person hires a seamstress to make her clothing for her instead of buying, if you'll forgive me, off the rack.

  • Claire Allison

    Fuck yeah Snowpiercer. I am all over that

  • prince_of_montagu

    wow. Snowpiercer has one eclectic ass cast. I'm in.

  • John W

    Does Snowpiercer have the best cast ever?

  • e jerry powell

    I still resent that people don't give Michael Shannon enough credit for his long-haul work through the stage and film versions of Bug.

  • toblerone

    Emma Stone, Benedict Cumberbatch, Charlie Hunnam…and now Jessica Chastain...

    That is a whole lot of ginger / pasty white skin hottness... Sunblock alone will eat up most of the budget.

  • Blake

    Crimson Peak = Ginger Apocalypse?

  • April Pastorius Wise

    Snowpiercer definitely has my attention now.

  • I wish the people at Flare magazine and the costume designers at MM would dress her forever. That woman is gorgeous but she does NOT know how to dress for her body type. I've never seen her in an outfit outside of that show that she looks good in.

    Also I really hope that The Iceman is a good movie because the cast is great and it has a great premise but mainly because I LOOOOOOVE Winona and that girl needs a win so badly.

  • toblerone

    I don't think that is true. There are a lot of candid photos of her where I think she looks terrific.

    She just needs to keep things simple.

  • kirbyjay

    I don't believe there have been textiles manufactured, discovered, or invented that could contain her simplicities.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    I get the sense that's less interested in dressing her body type than she is in exposing it. Choose your sympathies accordingly.

    I am not a big Winona fan at all. BUT, I find myself looking forward to this movie because as I saw in Black Swan, as she gets older I think her face is more compelling and her expressions more complex. I never thought she was such a much before, but I think Older Winona may have just grown into her thaang.

  • Captain D

    You might be onto something. I think some of her charm from the early days was being stone faced in reaction to the surroundings. I want that to sound like a compliment, but reading it back makes me think of Kristen Stewart.

  • Maguita NYC

    Christina Hendricks' pillowy and milky lovely bosoms are the perfect place where I could hide my face, and escape the nightmare that is Michael Shannon's disturbing soul-drilling glare.

  • clatie

    I appreciate any reference to Peter Frampton. You may extrapolate my age from this info.

    PS If you don't know what I am referring to, we may have trouble understanding each other.

  • koko temur

    You had me at "cumberbatch"
