What?

Seems like that rumor wasn’t really a rumor.

Variety (hence, also NP.com) is reporting that the adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a go, and that Natalie will be playing Elizabeth Bennet with zombies running around. Maybe it’s like Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightley version) mixed with Fido.

To be perfectly honest, though… I think I got into reading too late, as I do not appreciate Jane Austen as I should. This is the part when Julz gasps in emotional distress. Yes, there are books that should be read when you’re younger, so they make the perfect impact… like The Diary of Anne Frank.

So I’m so on the fence for this project.

And we continue to go through the years and film~

Some interesting observations on this one? There were a lot of GOOD male performances. I guess it’s by years, but I thought it was so tough to choose my Best Actors this time.

sporting this AWESOME cover,

Too much to post today, not enough time to single post everything
so another round of shorts here…

First, Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) has joined Twilight.
WHAT??? Geez… I have nothing left to say about this.

hmm… March? Later than I expected, but oh well~

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has added more titles for this year’s event, including screenings for Alejandro Amenabar’s Agora (with Rachel Weisz), and Natalie Portman’s Love and Other Impossible Pursuits.

Those are added to the list of Precious, Kore-eda’s Air Doll and Bong Joon-Ho’s Mother, which I mentioned back in this post

and finally… I received an email of Sony Pictures announcing Michael Jackson’s “This is It” – the last rehearsals and behind-the-scenes footage on HD and digital sound to be released on October 30th.

won’t post the “press release” because it’s so long, and to be honest – pretty boring to read.

It feels like FOREVER.
Just like Paris, Je t’Aime.
When did I first blog the trailer??
Nearly a year ago~~~

New York I Love You Poster

How do you feel about the poster? Better than the first image, I think. But Paris, Je t’Aime pawns.

Just like before, the collection of shorts has loads of people. Natalie Portman has two shorts in it, one as an actress on Mira Nair’s short, and one directing (exciting!) – most exciting? Shunji Iwai’s short!! Though it’s with Orlando Bloom, Shunji Iwai makes movie magic oftentimes~ And I’ve been waiting new Shunji Iwai films since… since… since Hana & Alice which was released in 2004.

Not like I waited since 2004, since I just discovered him. LOL
