A few great new portrait outtakes of Rachel during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival to promote “Spotlight” have been added in our gallery, including a newly released session with The Wrap alongside her co-star Brian d’Arcy James, director Tom McCarthy and screenplay writer Josh Singer. The digital magazine scans of the current issue of Entertainment Weekly (October 3, 2015) have been added in our gallery as well. Many thanks to my friend Luciana for donating them to us. The scans feature a great new photo of Rachel during the 2015 Telluride Film Festival.
“Spotlight” currently holds a 97% rating at Rotten Tomatoes (with 31 reviews) and a 81 Meta Critics score (with 10 reviews). The movie has been very well received after it’s premiere screenings at the Venice, Telluride and Toronto International Film Festival. THR is exclusively reporting earlier this week that the ensemble cast will be promoted for Oscar consideration in the supporting acting categories:
The entire cast of current Oscar frontrunner Spotlight — an impressive group that includes Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, John Slattery and Brian d’Arcy James — will be promoted for Oscar consideration in the supporting acting categories, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. McAdams is the sole supporting actress prospect for Spotlight (she’s also eligible in the category for her strong work in Southpaw), Spotlight boasts a ton of viable supporting actor candidates.
The movie has been making headlines after it’s festival premieres as possible Oscar season frontrunner. The cast and crew have been part of the latest award season predictions. Variety is currently ranking Rachel #8 as Best Supporting Actress Frontrunners. A selection of other supporting actress prediction lists: Indiewire (at #10), Award Circuit (at #4), Scott Feinberg for The Hollywood Reporter (at #7) and Thompson on Hollywood. The movie will get a limited release on November 6 before going nationwide on November 20 (U.S.A.).
Deadline’s AwardLine published a press junket interview with writer/director Tom McCarthy and Rachel alongside Sacha Pfeiffer, who she portrays in the movie, which was recorded during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The video can be found in our video archive. We also added the portrait session Rachel did alongside McCarthy, her co-stars and the real-life Spotlight team.
This awards season, it’s the battle of the newsroom films with Truth going inside 60 Minutes and the 2004 Rathergate scandal and Spotlight shining on the Boston Globe‘s crack investigative journo team that exposed the Boston Catholic Archdiocese cover-up of its child-molesting priests.
Such intricate stories, like Truth, often are based on a book, but Spotlight director Tom McCarthy bare-knuckled it with scribe Josh Singer, meeting with all the Globe reporters, church officials and investigators involved in the 2001 scandal before they hammered out a script (“I wish it was based on a book,” he told Deadline. “It would have made it much easier.”). McCarthy visited Deadline/Awardsline’s Toronto Film Festival studio and expounded on his approach to the film, along with actress Rachel McAdams, who was in tow with the Boston Globe reporter she portrays in the film: Sacha Pfeiffer who was tasked with interviewing the victims in the molestation case.
Open Road Film will release Spotlight on November 6. The film, which marks the return of Oscar-nominated Birdman actor Micheal Keaton, received rave reviews out of TIFF and has a current Rotten Tomatoes of 96%.
The Los Angeles Times did an amazing portrait session with cast of “Spotlight” (minus Mark Ruffalo & Michael Keaton) and Boston Globe journalists alongside writer/director Tom McCarthy and writer Josh Singer during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The first outtakes can be found in our gallery and we also added the behind the scenes images.
Sacha Pfeiffer on Rachel: “Rachel wanted to know everything: what I ate, how I grew up, what I thought,” said Boston Globe reporter Sacha Pfeiffer about on-screen avatar Rachel McAdams, as the audience cheered. “It was an honor to watch this process.”
