“Take Shelter” final poster has been released, and it’s beautiful.
Starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain, the film follows is a man whose life slowly becomes consumed by his belief that a deadly, apocalyptic storm is on the way. A psychological slow-burn that doubles as a parable about the difficult times that face working class Americans today (seriously), Jeff Nichols film is breathless and invigorating, intellectually deep and emotionally resonant in a way that few thrillers or dramas of this sort ever are. It marks another great outing between Nichols and Shannon who paired up for the absolutely great “Shotgun Stories” which as always, we urge you to Netflix ASAP. As for the new poster for “Take Shelter,” don’t fear, this is not a redux of “The Birds.” The winged creatures are part of the visions that Shannon’s character in the film witnesses as he struggles to grasp what’s real and what’s fantasy.
“Take Shelter” will begin rolling into cinemas starting on September 30th and you should put it pretty high on your list of all movies. (The Playlist)
Jeff Nichols’ intense psychological drama Take Shelter is set for a limited release on September 30th (via The Playlist) before going wide on October 7th. Starring Michael Shannon, the film generated a good amount of buzz at Sundance.
Jessica Chastain attended the ‘BAFTA Brits to Watch’ event on Saturday. The event was done to promote forty-two emerging British individuals selected by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. The event took place at the Belasco Theater, and I added 05 MQ pictures to the gallery:
Edit: Updated with some HQ’s donated by my friend Mariana.
Flicks and Bits have posted an interview done with Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt about “The Tree of Life”. Check the Jessica’s excerpts behind the cut:
Working with Terrence Malick must be an extraordinary and unique experience?
For me it was a lot about giving up any idea of what the plan might be on the first scene, or on a day that we were going to film, it was all about capturing an accident. There was a scene where we were shooting a grief section and I remember I was watching Brad, he was so good, then there’s this Woodpecker going and Terry was like, “there’s a Woodpecker somewhere!” And he’d point the camera towards that. But there’s always ways to incorperate it, even in the trailer when you hear the voiceover go “there are two ways through life, the way of nature, and the way of grace,” you hear a bird in the background, that’s actually from the set, when I was doing the voiceover.
I did a small update today in the gallery. Added new 50 mq pictures of Jessica attending the “Tree of Life” press conference last May, and also more 33 beautiful new mq pictures of “The Help” press conference done last June 29th. Enjoy!
Finally, promotional stills of “The Help” with Jessica in it were released last night. There’s only two, but better than nothing!
The press conference for “The Help” was held last June 29th, and the first pictures has surfaced. I added 08 pictures of it in our gallery:
THR reported that DreamWorks and Disney are moving up the release of The Help by two days, from Aug. 12 to Aug. 10. The switch means the film, based on Kathryn Stockett’s runaway best seller, will open on a Wednesday. By going out midweek, DreamWorks hopes to capitalize on strong word-of-mouth.
DreamWorks has begun screening the film in earnest to various groups, and reports great reaction.
Disney will distribute the film through its Touchstone label. The Help was fully produced and financed by DreamWorks and Participant Media.
It seems all portraits Jessica did while she was in Cannes are being released today. I just found out two more sessions from that time. Check it:
And another photoshoot update, this time beautiful outtakes of a photoshoot Jessica did to “Angeleno” back in April. Also, outtakes for the Flaunt photoshoot (the same used in our layout) are also added.
