The typical critical clichés used to praise thrillers are overused expressions like “pulse-pounding” or “a white-knuckle ride.” The superb A Most Wanted Man can’t be described with those adjectives, but that’s because director Anton Corbijn’s film is colder and more cerebral—and yet, when the film reaches its final stretches, it’s extraordinarily gripping.
The film’s confident tonal control is a compliment to Corbijn’s skill, but it’s also recognition of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s wonderfully controlled central performance. You don’t realize how stunning the whole experience really was until it’s over. Based on a John le Carré novel, A Most Wanted Man takes its time to tell its tale, focusing first on character and atmosphere before turning to plot.
Hello guys! I’m Sonia and i’m the new owner of Rachel McAdams Web ! I would like to thanks to The Fan Carpet for let me run the site. So i’m going to catch up all the news, you can visit the gallery.. I have a lot of work to do on the site ! Enjoy =)
“Fetch” never happened (sorry, Gretchen), but a Mean Girls reunion actually might.
For those who don’t feel old enough this morning, we’re happy to remind you that Mark Waters’ savagely funny Mean Girls came out 10 years ago, and chatter surrounding a possible reunion has been growing louder as fans and cast members discuss the possibility of celebrating the film’s success. There was that time Rachel McAdams revealed her fave Mean Girls quote while walking a Sundance red carpet:
And now we have Mean Girls screenwriter (and uber-celebrity) Tina Fey commenting on the possibility of an anniversary celebration. Fey was walking her own red carpet promoting Muppets Most Wanted when E! asked her if a reunion is possible. She explained:
“We’re working on the musical, that’s going to be in a couple years, I guess. So hopefully there will be like a screening or a party, but that’s it. But that would be good, right? … I hope everyone can come. I hope we can organize something.”
The “musical” line is a joke, right? You never can tell with Fey. Her sarcasm masks possible truths! But a reunion has been dangled for a while now, possibly getting Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert and the rest of the cast together. Even Lohan, while on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon recently, revealed that she’d been hearing plans for a gathering. She tells Fallon:
“I saw Tina [Fey] and she mentioned doing a reunion. She said she was talking to Lorne [Michaels] about it. She’s talking to the big boss.”
Of course, Lohan lies if you ask her what she ate for breakfast, so do with that information what you will.
The issue of a Mean Girls reunion is that everyone (or almost everyone) has moved on to much bigger things, so coordinating schedules would be a nightmare. McAdams is in pre-production on Passengers with Keanu Reeves. Seyfried is busy with He’s F**king Perfect and Fathers and Daughters with Russell Crowe. Even Lohan has her own television program on the OWN Network to worry about. We’re not asking for a sequel here. Maybe have the cast record a video commentary track that can be included on an anniversary DVD. That’d be so fetch. In the meantime, enjoy these fantastic Mean Girls quotes. And if you are a major fan of Fey and Waters’ film, pray that they can get the band back together for some type of celebration!
Cameron Crowe‘s next film has been set to be released on December 25th, 2014. The movie still doesn’t have a title, but the comedy drama stars Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, Jay Baruchel, Michael Chernus, and Ivana Milicevic.
Cooper plays a defense contractor who falls for an Air Force pilot, played by Stone. Cooper’s character is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii, and the two of them team up to put a stop to the launch.
I’ve always enjoyed Crowe’s style of filmmaking and storytelling, and I hope this movie will make his fans happy.
Thanks to The Uncool.
According to the latest issue of OK! Magazine, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdamsare getting back together. Well, that wasn’t too difficult to predict, was it?
Ryan and Eva Mendes always had a ticking time bomb on their relationship. Sure, they were both insanely attractive people, but how similar are they, really? Not just personality wise, but in terms of their careers? Look at where Ryan is now with his career, and where Eva is with hers. Also, there have been a lot of recent reports about trouble in their relationship, reportedly due to Ryan’s insistence on getting married and having children and Eva’s apathy towards settling down.
In addition, there have also been several reports about Eva’s domineering nature and how her controlling behavior is slowly driving Ryan away – and back to Rachel. I mean, Ryan and Rachel were really one of the cutest couples to ever exist, so sue us for hoping that this story is true. McGosling forever!
Of course, OK!’s report simply states that after Ryan’s unofficial breakup with Eva, Ryan has slowly been seeing more of Rachel, who also happens to be single right now. There aren’t many details available just yet, but I have a feeling the writer of this article was also a McGosling fan. In all seriousness, I can see Ryan and Rachel possibly reconciling, but not right now. Both of their careers are still too hot and one of the reasons they broke up was that they hated the attention from the press. At this point, they’re both A-list stars and that’s not going away any time soon – so have they simply gotten over that particular hump? Or do you think they’ll never really get over that?
Gravity has set a new standard for what we should expect from movies that take place in outer space, and the cast is coming together for another film that’s going to take audiences to the stars. Deadline reports that Rachel McAdams is in talks to star opposite Keanu Reeves in the film Passengers. To be directed by Brian Kirk — a veteran of Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire — the film tells the story of a massive ship transporting thousands of people to an off-world colony. Reeves’ character is woken up 90 years ahead of schedule, and with returning to hibernation not an option, he instead decides to wake up Rachel McAdams in a type of outer space love story.
The script for Passengers comes courtesy of Jon Spaihts, who previously penned Alien: Engineers — the script that became Prometheus after Damon Lindelof gave it an overhaul. McAdams, who will next be seen in the time travel romantic drama About Time, will be replacing Reese Witherspoon. According to Deadline, Witherspoon was part of the package for the movie when The Weinstein Company picked it up at the Cannes Film Festival, but had to drop out due to the film’s decision to shoot in Germany.
Rachel McAdams grabbed the limelight on Saturday at the Munich premiere of her new film About Time in a figure baring modern Saint Laurent LBD.
With a revealing mid chest cut out and even deeper opening down the back, the dress certainly wasn’t a safe choice for the star, who clearly wanted to make an impact. Her hair was a slightly more fiery shade of red than usual and in a retro bee hive, starkly contrasted her futuristic mini.
Rachel was also papped in London wearing a lovely blue dress at the BBC Studios.
The film is slated for general release in the UK on September 4. Check out the photos here.
