Collider has a bunch of new stills from Drive‘s press kit that was released a little bit ago and two of those feature Carey! A full synopsis has also been released, which you can read below.
Driver (RYAN GOSLING) is a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night. Doesn’t matter what job he does, Driver is most comfortable behind the wheel of a car. Shannon (BRYAN CRANSTON) is part mentor, part manager for Driver. Since he knows what a great talent Driver is behind the wheel, he either peddles him to film and television directors in the entertainment business or thieves who need an accomplished getaway driver, taking a cut for his own pockets. Always looking to make a buck, Shannon’s current plan is funding a stock car that Driver can race on the professional circuit. Since Bernie Rose (ALBERT BROOKS) is the wealthiest guy he knows, even if the sources of his money are questionable, Shannon proposes he be their investor. After seeing Driver in action at the speedway, Bernie Rose insists Nino (RON PERLMAN) partners with them as well. Primarily a loner and ambivalent about the deals Shannon makes for him, Driver’s world changes the day he shares an elevator ride at his apartment building with Irene (CAREY MULLIGAN). When he sees her again at the grocery store with her young son, Benicio (KADEN LEOS), he is transfixed, and willingly offers help when they are stranded in the parking lot because Irene’s car won’t start. Soon Driver settles into a routine of driving Irene to her waitress job and watching Benicio, entangled in their lives while her car is fixed. This interlude in Driver’s life abruptly stops when Standard (OSCAR ISAAC), Irene’s husband, is let out early from prison for good behavior. Even though nothing has happened between Driver and Irene, Standard is threatened by another man’s presence in his family’s life. Driver backs off, respectful of Irene’s desire to keep her family together, but when he finds Standard bloodied and lying in the garage with a scared Benicio standing next to his father, Driver is embroiled even further in Irene’s life. Then trouble begins…
The Atlantic Theatre Company have launched their information page for Through A Glass Darkly, which will be starring Carey. The play is running from May 13 – July 3, and you can order your tickets from here. A poster for the show has been released, as well as a synopsis of the play itself:
Karin (Mulligan) is the central figure in the lives of her family, not least because her own tenuous grip on reality keeps everyone in constant motion around her. On an annual vacation to a beautiful remote island, tensions flare as her husband, father and brother struggle over the best way to help her. When a legacy of denial and repression boils over, threatening the future of the entire family, Karin decides that she must take command of her own destiny.
Hello everyone! I felt that Carey Mulligan Online was in desperate need for a new layout, so here we are! I absolutely love this shoot that Carey did last year, and I felt that a nice, simple look as in order as we (im)patiently wait for some new information regarding Carey’s upcoming projects, including Shame, Drive, The Great Gatsby and her rumoured projects On Chesil Beach and My Fair Lady.
I am also busy working behind the scenes on some content, and general spring-cleaning, so please let me know what you think of the new look and if you spot any errors!
Ben Affleck is out, Isla Fisher is (almost) in. Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby will look something like this: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan are a lock (as Jay Gatsby, Nick Carraway, Daisy Buchanan—just as Lurhmann has wanted it since October 2010).
Affleck has finally committed to his next directing gig, Argo, about the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis in the Middle East, so the actor won’t be donning ‘20s tweeds as Tom Buchanan. Fisher is in negotiations to play Myrtle, Buchanan’s married lover. The Warner Bros. production will kick off in Sydney, Australia this August.
The Cannes International Film Festival 2011 line-up has been announced!
The movie calendar’s most glamorous festival is now less than a month away: it opens on May 11th, to be precise.
Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, Nicolas Winding-Refn’s Drive and, er, Rob Marshall’s Pirates of the Caribbean 4 are among the more mainstream movies in attendance.
Check out the full list of films here.
Collider has just posted a first sneak-peek shot of Carey in Drive! It’s only a LQ still, but nevertheless it’s nice to have something new, especially an upcoming film! Hopefully this means the promotional campaign for this film will be starting up soon.
Carey news is very slow at the moment, but I saw this little tidbit today and couldn’t resist sharing!
When Carey Mulligan was preparing for her Great Gatsby audition (she will be Daisy in Baz Luhrmann’s production) she asked Ashley and Mary-Kate for sartorial help – good call, Carey! ‘I couldn’t believe what they did when I texted in a panic about having nothing to wear for my audition for Gatsby! I was hoping they’d send me some things from The Row, but then these huge boxes arrived—Ashley’s entire collection of thirties vintage dresses.’ Petite in height but with oh-so-very-big hearts!
Thanks once again to Mariana for scans of Carey in Stylist magazine’s February 9th issue! Please do not repost these on other sites as it they were scanned specifically for Carey Mulligan Online. Thanks.
A nice treat for the visitors! Thanks again to my lovely friend Mariana for scanning and sending this to me: it’s a scan of Carey in Radio Times from 2005! Please do not repost this on other sites as it was scanned specifically for Carey Mulligan Online. Thanks.
Last night, Carey attended the after party for Happythankyoumoreplease in support of her best friend, Zoe Kazan. Pictures have been added to the gallery!
