Where I Slap You Upside the Head with Gorgeous New Looks of Really Pretty People in Movies that Look Really Great
Here is your first look at Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning in Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt, a horror movie about a burnt-out mystery writer (Kilmer) who gets mixed up in murder and evil in a California town. (The Playlist)
Here is another look at Ryan Gosling in The Ides of March. The political thriller directed by George Clooney will also star Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, and Evan Rachel Wood, as well as Clooney. (The Playlist)
Here’s what Jude Law looks like with Rachel Weisz in 360, the new film by Fernando Meirelles (City of God). Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster also star, and it looks to be another one of those profound (or faux-profound) interweaving storyline films. (The Playlist)
This is what Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan look like in Shame, which comes from director Steve McQueen (Hunger). I think the movie is about Fassbender’s addiction to sex. NO, REALLY. (Slashfilm)
Here’s another one, because one picture can’t contain all the beauty of Carey Mulligan.
Speaking of beautiful people, here’s a few looks at Sarah Polley’s new film, Take This Waltz, which is a bittersweet story about a married woman struggling to choose between her husband and a man she’s just met. Michelle Williams will play the woman, Seth Rogen will play the husband, and Luke Kirby plays the man she just met. (The Playlist)
Finally, I leave you with even more pretty: Here is Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston in Deep Blue Sea, about a woman whose overpowering, obsessive love alienates the men around her and destroys her well-being.
I should also note that, all of the above films will be playing at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, which is brimming with promising films this year. Unfortunately, yours truly missed the press accreditation deadline, and the process by which one secures regular tickets to screenings is unduly expensive, confusing, and cumbersome for anyone living outside of Toronto.
