Why didn’t ‘The Devil Wear Prada’ get a sequel? Even ‘Garfield’ got ‘A Tale of Two Kitties.’ And ‘Prada’ was a flat-out hit. It earned $326M worldwide (on a reported $35M budget). It nabbed Meryl Streep yet another Oscar nomination. And it elevated the already rising stars of both Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. All of these factors should have led to a sequel. Now, 6 years later, it just might.
Yesterday you got to see some photos of the 'Les Miserables' cast so you know how they look as your favorite characters, but what do Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe sound like when they're singing your favorite 'Les Mis' songs? The 'Les Miserables' trailer is here and you can find out.
Tom Hooper caught a lot of grief as his ‘The King’s Speech’ rode the Oscar campaign trail two years ago, primarily because his excellent film was deemed “not as excellent” as David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’ by vocal film columnists. But in the process of arguing for ‘Network’ (which is great), most overlooked the fact that ‘Speech’ is deftly directed and superbly acted. Hooper’s the real deal, and he’s the perfect fit for ‘Les Miserables,’ which we get a good look at today.
When it comes to the ladies, Bart Simpson clearly gets around, as evidenced by the smorgasbord of A-list actresses set to play Bart's assorted exes in an episode of 'The Simpsons' scheduled for early next season. Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Zooey Deschanel and Sarah Silverman will all reprise their respective roles in Bart's love life in "Moonshine River," set to air this fall.
We've seen it before, the actor or actress who ends up making a drastic haircut in order to properly slip into their big role. Natalie Portman got a buzz cut in front of the camera during shooting for 'V for Vendetta,' Emma Stone went from a redhead to a blonde for 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and now Anne Hathaway throws her long locks into the hair ring.
