Welcome to Jessica Chastain Network, the original and most complete fansite dedicated to Oscar nominated actress Jessica Chastain.
You may know Jessica from her roles in movies as Take Shelter, Coriolanus, Mama, Lawless, or the acclaimed Tree of Life, Zero Dark Thirty and The Help.

Jessica has first appeared on the public eyes during 2011 Cannes, when a very shy and beautiful redhead was being guided by Brad Pitt and Sean Penn on the red carpet. In a few months her career exploded, with seven movies being released in sequel and her first Oscar nomination coming right after. Today, it's nearly impossible you never have heard about her.

Our goal is to provide fans an up to date source for Miss Chastain with news, a comprehensive content, and a picture gallery with over 30.000 paparazzi free pictures and counting. Thank you for visiting!

Just when they was arriving on Cannes red carpet for the ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’, James took the microphone and ran to Jessica in order to get her interviewed. You can watch the moment below:

We didn’t have – yet – a red carpet appearance on Cannes, but a screening of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them was made already and we can read some reviews about it. It makes me happy that every single review is praising Jessica’s performance. You can read some reviews on the original sites, but be sure to avoid them if you don’t want to read spoilers. It has a few…

Chastain is terrific as the barbed, brittle Eleanor.
The Guardian

Even in this shortened version, every cast member gets a chance to shine, so it’s little wonder that Benson was able to attract such a cast: he’s written everyone a little showcase that lets them flex their muscles, and from legends like Hurt and Huppert to an against-the-grain choice like Hader, everyone impresses. Davis in particular seems to relish her role, and gives one of her most impressive turns.

But the film really belongs to McAvoy and Chastain, who do close to career-best work here: the former masks his pain with a jokey boyishness, the latter becoming increasingly sharp and furious, drowning under her grief. The film’s never better when they’re sharing the screen.

The new Interstellar trailer – that was released with The Godzilla yesterday – is online now and you can watch it below:

This new trailer unveils the story of the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn standing as the last remaining crop. While Matthew McConaughey‘s character is tasked with heading to other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown, it’s said to be “a human story about a father and a daughter” at its core.

Interstellar opens on November 7th, 2014.

Digital scans of current Cannes Wrap issue can now be found in the gallery. On it, Jessica is talking about The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, that will premiere in Cannes tomorrow.

With a boost from Chastain’s newfound clout, Benson got enough money to shoot both movies on a tight 40-day schedule, filming scenes from one character’s perspective and then the other’s. It presented a daunting acting challenge: In one version of the story Chastain was playing her character, but in the other she was playing the McAvoy character’s impression of her, which meant that crucial details—dialogue, movement, even clothing—were different.
“It’s super-weird,” Chastain said. “I approached it like it was two different women. They’re both Eleanor, but they’re two different women. Her is ‘This is Eleanor, this is my truth, this is everything I have.’ And Him is Connor’s perception of Eleanor, which is very different.” (The Them version playing at Cannes mixes both perspectives to focus on the relationship.)

(…) “It’s a broader experience, and it gives the audience more choice,” said Benson. “But I do want to emphasize that the original two films exist exactly as they are.”

schedule

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival start tomorrow, and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them” is set to have two screening on May 17.

The distributor also released the official Cannes press kit of the movie, featuring a very large Q&A with director Ned Benson and producer partner Cassandra Kulukundis. The scans of the press kit have been added to our gallery and you can read some excerpts below.

Jessica Chastain was on board early on—how did she become involved to begin with?
Benson: I met Jes about 11 years ago now. I had a short film playing in a film festival, and there were something like 12 people in the audience. Afterwards this girl comes running up to me in the lobby and asks me if I directed the film she just saw. I said yes. And she said: I want to work with you. And I thought to myself: Why? The girl happened to be Jessica, who had just graduated from Juilliard and moved to LA to be an actor. She was my first fan and has believed in me for a long time, which I am extremely grateful for, because without that I’m not sure I’d have made this project. We became very close and I developed what became the two-film project with and for her…and here we are. Life is funny.

Furthermore, tell us how the rest of the incredible cast became part of the film.
Benson: Once we had Jessica involved, I knew I wanted James McAvoy to play the role of Conor. Because of his scheduling, we actually didn’t have James locked in until a few months before we started shooting. Having Jessica and James was sort of an amazing coup for me. The first to get involved after Jessica was William Hurt. He signed on a year before we started filming and was a big proponent of the script. And from there this amazing thing happened where everyone who we reached out to as my first choice began saying yes. It felt like all of a sudden the film came together and I’m directing this incredible cast of Jessica, James, William, Viola Davis, Isabelle Huppert, Ciara?n Hinds, Bill Hader, Jess Weixler, and Nina Arianda.

What was it like working with Jessica Chastain on the film?
Benson: It was fantastic. She’s the type of actor that when you have a tough emotional scene, you have complete trust in her because she’s going to get there. She’s one of the hardest-working actors I know. She just has this emotional depth that is so incredible to watch when you’re shooting her, or when you’re working on a scene with her because she can do it over, and over, and over again. And to have a film as emotional as this and have somebody who can get where she got in every take, and give you options—it’s a pretty amazing thing.
