14 February 2014   Aloha Movie News Comments Off on Untitled Hawaii Project Gets Release Date

Deadline is reporting that Sony/Columbia/Regency has set a Christmas 2014 release for the still Untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii Project. Rachel stars alongside Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and John Krasinski. The movie wrapped up filming last year in Hawaii.

Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have marked out a December 25, 2014 release date for their untitled Cameron Crowe film, which stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. Scott Rudin is producing with Crowe, who wrote and directed the romantic comedy. There’s still no title, but the plot centers on a defense contractor (Cooper) who falls for an Air Force pilot (Stone) after he is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii.

The movie will be up against “Hot Tub Time Machine 2”, “Into the Woods”, and “Unbroken” according to Box Office Mojo.

14 February 2014   Gallery Updates The Lucky Ones 2 Comments

For this week’s Film Friday we decided to spotlight one of Rachel’s less known movies: “The Lucky Ones“. The movie premiered during the Toronto International Film Festival in 2008. Rachel stars alongside Tim Robbins and Michael Peña as Colee. This is one of my favorite performances of Rachel so I would recommend watching this for everyone who hasn’t seen it. I think this role is more of a stretch for Rachel and she proves how versatile she is as an actress. We added the HD/Blu-Ray captures in our gallery and we also moved and updated the complete movie section to our new gallery.

Let us introduce our brand new feature: Film Friday. For the coming months we will make an update on a Friday focussing on one project of Rachel’s filmography. We can’t promise it we are able to do an update every Friday but we will try to make new update as frequent as possible. Today we start with a recent movie: “About Time“. The movie was released on DVD/Blu-Ray/Demand/Digital HD in the US and UK earlier this week and we added the blu-ray captures of the movie and Blu-Ray/DVD extras in our gallery.

We want to give a special thank you shout-out to Frederik from our partner sites Simply Streep, Helen Mirren Archives, and Noomi Rapace Online for inspiration for the film spotlight idea.

Deadline is reporting that Rachel signed with WME. She was previously with UTA and was repped by The Gersh Agency in the beginning of her career.

Rachel McAdams has signed with WME. The actress comes into the agency fold after starring most recently in the untitled Cameron Crowe film with Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Bill Murray, and after starring in the Anton Corbjin-directed A Most Wanted Man, the adaptation of the John Le Carre novel that stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Daniel Bruhl and Willem Dafoe. McAdams, who had been without an agent since leaving UTA last April, continues to be managed by Shelley Browning at Magnolia.

Let’s hope this also means Rachel will sign on to another project this year. Filming for “Every Thing Will Be Fine” is expected to wrap up this months. She is expected to start filming “Passengers” alongside Keanu Reeves in Berlin in April.

3 February 2014   A Most Wanted Man News & Rumors Comments Off on RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967–2014)

Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away on Sunday. We are still lost for words but we wanted to express how deeply saddened we are by this devastating news. We want to give our sincere condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time. Rachel attended the Sundance Film Festival premiere of “A Most Wanted Man” two weeks alongside director Anton Corbijn and co-stars Willem Dafoe and Philip Seymour Hoffman and named him her favorite actor back in 2009. The movie completed production and is expected to be released in theaters sometime this year.

ABC News has Corbijn’s official statement:

“He was not only the most gifted actor I ever worked with (and judging by the legacy he leaves behind I am certain I share this with most if not all directors who were fortunate enough to work with him), he had also become an incredibly inspiring and supportive friend. I am so terribly sad as I find it impossible to comprehend what happened today and to collect my thoughts properly. I have to think about Mimi and the children and I wish them much strength coping with the loss of this truly great man as a father and partner.” — Director Anton Corbijn in a statement. Hoffman stars in Corbijn’s film “A Most Wanted Man,” which premiered earlier this month at the Sundance Film Festival.

Before Rachel made her feature film debut she appeared in a few television series and TV movies. We added the screencaptures of the promotional trailer of the MTV pilot Rachel shot titled “Shotgun Love Dolls“. The actual pilot never aired. We also added the screencaptures of Rachel’s guest spot in the Disney series “The Famous Jett Jackson” which aired in 2001.

We finished completing the Television Projects section in our new gallery so be sure to head over to our gallery to check out the complete section!

31 January 2014   Movie News Passengers Comments Off on “Passengers” to film at Babelsberg Studios

THR is reporting that “Passengers” will be filmed at the Studio Babelsberg and will be part of the Berlin Film Festival market for the international buyers in February. It has been reported before that the movie will start filming in April.

Keanu Reeves’ much-hyped upcoming sci-fi feature Passengers has landed at Germany’s Studio Babelsberg.

The big-budget space romance – which features Reeves and Rachel McAdams as a futuristic “Adam and Eve” – is deep into pre-production. It is scheduled to begin shooting at Babelsberg, just outside Berlin, this spring.

The plot has Reeves as space colonist Jim Preston, on board a colony ship carrying 5,000 sleeping passengers to a new world, who accidentally awakens. Lonely, he wakes up Aurora (McAdams), and they fall in love. They eventually realize it is up to them to save the entire ship.

Developed by Reeves and Stephen Hamel at their Company Films, the script was written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). The film will be the feature directing debut of Irish TV director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire). Passengers has already received $1.35 million (€1 million) in financing from German state subsidy agency Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.

The Weinstein Company has picked up Passengers for a U.S. release. Exclusive Media is handling international sales. Exclusive first presented the project to buyers in Cannes last year and will be pushing sales at Berlin’s European Film Market, which kicks off Thursday.

The Weinstein Company has set the US release date for April 3, 2015.

31 January 2014   A Most Wanted Man Gallery Updates Media Archive Press Archive Comments Off on 2014 Sundance Film Festival Round-up

We added even more additions of Rachel at the Sundance Film Festival last week to promote “A Most Wanted Man“. We also replaced most of the MQ photos with HQ ones so be sure to head over to our gallery! We also added more additional interviews in our media archive. Many thanks again to my friend Amanda for helping out.

The first press interviews/articles are also added in our press archive. With this update it also means we finished transferring our Events from 2014, Photoshoots from 2014, and “A Most Wanted Man” movie section into our new gallery.

“The story is such a tangled web and is very relevant,” said McAdams, also at Sundance to promote the film. “I learned a lot about what human rights lawyers are doing in Hamburg and what a difficult position they are in. There are realities to the story that are very disturbing. Every character is dealing with moral questions. That stays with you.”

30 January 2014   Gallery Updates Photoshoots 3 Comments

Our site turns 10 this year and while I’ve mainly focussed on keeping the news and information sections of the site up-to-date, I’ve kind of forgotten to pay attention to the older sections of our gallery. For the last few months I have been gathering a lot of photos of Rachel from various categories so we can replace (with better version) and add lots of additions to our gallery. I decided to give our entire gallery a major revamp! I have been working on reorganizing our gallery so it’s easier for you to visit and for me to maintain. From now on you can reach our (new) gallery via /gallery.

To start with, I’ve been working on the Photoshoot & Portraits section in our gallery. We replaced a lot of photos with better quality ones. A list with the updated albums can be found inside this post, but be sure to check out our entire Photoshoot & Portraits section! Many thanks to my friends Claudia, Allie and Annie for their donations!

While I am working on our new gallery you can still visit our old gallery (/photos) if you are looking for albums we haven’t added to our new gallery. I also decided to continue the site and new gallery as paparazzi-free. This means we will not move our Candids section from our old gallery to the new one and that we will stop posting candids of Rachel her every day life. Our main focus is to support Rachel’s career and we feel like candids (and gossip) are not part of that anymore. We will continue to post on-set photos and other work-related candids (like arriving at events).

I apologize for any inconvenience the moving of the gallery might cause (like dead links) but I will promise to get everything working again as soon as possible. Please bear with us while we are undergoing this major -but exciting- change. But I promise, I’ve lots of (HQ) goodies for you coming up so stay tuned!
