Another treat for Carey fans today! I managed to get hold of a BluRay copy of Brothers, and have added Carey’s brief appearance to the gallery – enjoy!
The trailer for Never Let Me Go has finally been released! Thanks to Amanda and Ashleigh for the heads up. High-definition screen captures have already been added to the gallery – enjoy.
Short, but exciting news, by way of director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo). The man’s new film, Never Let Me Go, written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later…, Sunshine) and starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield, has a release date: October 1st, 2010.
Romanek announced as much on his Twitter account:
NEVER LET ME GO is finally done and has a release date. It will appear in select cities starting October 1. Trailer on its way very soon.
I’m very excited for this film. Here’s the synopsis via IMDB:
An alternate history story of a woman who, as she reflects on her private school years in the English countryside, reunites with her two friends to face the dark secrets tied to their communal past.
Garland is a skilled writer with a penchant for science-fiction. With the visually-skilled Romanek at his side, not to mention the mad abundance of young acting talent, this one could/should be one to remember.
UK reviews on Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps have come in after its Cannes debut. “Utterly gripping. It’s been 23 years but it was worth the wait,” says London tabloid the Daily Mirror. “A return to form for all involved.” Baz Bamigoye in the rival Daily Mail says the movie is packed full of great lines. But it’s this punchy insider dialogue that’s a problem for the Daily Telegraph: “Without a close daily study of the financial pages, it’s hard to keep up.” The Independent calls the movie riveting, bombastic and downright maudlin by turns, while the Guardian says, “Money looks as if it’s dozing a little here: my advice is ‘sell’.”
Carey Mulligan may have earned an Oscar nomination for “An Education,” a romantic drama about a young woman coming of age that made its debut at Sundance 2009 – but that wasn’t the star’s only movie at the festival.
The other film, “The Greatest,” a family drama co-starring Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan, is now making its way into theaters, and Carey hopes her awards season star power helps the new film.
“I hope that because of all the stuff that’s happened with ‘An Education,’ maybe more people will see it,” the British beauty told AccessHollywood.com at the film’s Hollywood premiere on Thursday. “I think [writer-director] Shana [Feste] did a brilliant job.”
The emotional film – from Shana, a first-time director — features Carey as a pregnant teen whose boyfriend dies in a car crash, after which she joins his family in the grieving process. She added that her performance wasn’t an easy one to see again.
“I actually have only ever seen it once, I saw it Sundance. It’s hard to watch yourself,” she said. “But yeah, I’m excited for people to see it.”
