This exclusive trailer for Miss Sloane (in theaters Dec. 9) begins exactly the same way as the film itself does, with a tight close-up of the indefatigable Jessica Chastain staring straight into the camera.
Making a ballistic analogy for the two-time Oscar-nominated actress’ eyes wouldn’t be entirely wrong in the case of this movie. Directed by John Madden, who worked with Chastain five years ago on The Debt, the political thriller engages with the national gun debate as a key part of its plot about the influence of lobbyists in Washington.
In the title role, Chastain stars as a lobbyist on the brink of personal and professional burnout. She appears in practically every scene of the film, as you can already tell from her presence in the trailer. For Madden, that was a big part of what drew him to the project. “The central character might be familiar to audiences had that person been a man,” the director says. “In this case, it’s a woman and the movie is totally framed around that character. She is the engine of the movie.”
The Huntsman: Winter’s War was released in DVD and Blu-Ray last August 23, in an extended edition, and in our gallery now you can find screencaptures of the film, screencaptures of the extras from blu-ray disc, additional promotional images and production stills.
Jessica showcases her gorgeous New York City apartment in the new issue of Architectural Digest. Inside the issue, she reveals how much she truly cherishes every item inside her picture-perfect home.
Equipped with over 3,000 square feet of space, several bedrooms, bathrooms and a whopping six fireplaces, the midtown Manhattan abode is a visual milestone marking the success Chastain found years after living in the same city as a student at Juilliard. In fact, Chastain revealed to the magazine that she often visited her future Central Park neighborhood for a restaurant nestled right across the street.
My grandmother would send me $20 once a week for the baked ziti. So every Saturday night, as a big splurge, we’d go there. I didn’t know until we saw the apartment, and I said, ‘Oh, my God, it’s right here.’
Before Jessica and Gian Luca had the keys, the apartment was owned by the likes of cabaret singer Bobby Short, TV star Larry Storch, composer Adam Guettel and West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein.
I just acquired my copy of the magazine issue, and you can check pictures of her pretty apartment, plus read the whole interview, checking up in our gallery.

Entertainment Weekly has on its Fall Movie Preview the first look of Jessica as Elizabeth Sloane in the gun control drama ‘Miss Sloane‘.
On it, Jessica talks a bit about the gun control issue:
“Gun control is divisive because some people are immediately afraid that it’s a kind of confiscation. And people who hear that in regards to this film will think it’s a plant to move them in one direction. It’s not.”
In preparation for her role as one of those people, Chastain met with 11 female lobbyists of all ideological stripes in Washington, and found a constant thread among them. “They all had to work harder than their [male] counterparts,” she says. For an actress who’s appeared in an average of four movies per year since 2011, that sounds like a natural fit.
But burnout, Chastain explains, is easier to avoid when you’re apathetic. “I think people reach burnout sooner when they’re working on things that don’t mean anything to them.” Certainly in the case of Miss Sloane, that’s not a charge you’d want to lobby against her.
Check in our gallery the HQ digital scan of EW issue, as well the first promotional images and the poster.
Jessica was spot earlier today on set of “The Death and Life of John F Donovan” in Montreal, and we have the first images of her in character.
The Death and Life of John F. Donovan takes place in the early 2000’s and centers on the tribulations of an American TV star in his late twenties (Kit Harington) and his correspondence with Rupert Turner, a young actor-to-be living with his mother in England. Their lives take dramatic turns when the existence of their pen pal relationship is publicly exposed, eliciting the most ill-founded assumptions, and sending Donovan in a vertical downfall. A decade later, the young actor recollects his relationship with his past idol over the course of an interview.
