The premiere of V for Vendetta is tonight and, as expected, Nat has made an appearance. Pics will be added to this gallery as we get them. We should also have a bunch of new reviews coming out.
Jonah found a nice little quote of Nat talking about Munich (the film) and V.
NATALIE PORTMAN says she doesn?t mind that she doesn?t ?agree with half of what?s in (?Munich?)? because ?political filmmaking is about . . . putting something out there that people aren?t going to like.? She?s also aware that her lead role in the upcoming ?V for Vendetta? might incite similar sentiment from moviegoers. ?How people interpret its relevance is so personal,? the Harvard University grad told Entertainment Weekly for its Feb. 17 issue, on newsstands today. ?Some people (will be) like, ?This is an antifascism movie!? and some like, ?This is Iraq!? ? Portman just completed filming ?Goya?s Ghosts,? which is slated for release later this year, reports Artnet.com. The Milos Forman-directed film tells about the life and love of the Spanish painter Francisco Goya y Lucientes. The 24-year-old actress, who plays Goya?s (Stellan Skarsgard) model and muse, co-stars Javier Bardem and Randy Quaid.
We’ve got even better versions of the EW pics, thanks to Nerble and bENi.
And Jonas sent in some scans from the German Cinema magazine. The pics are from a series that we had to remove from the site so they may be new to some.
Mike Mingola talked about a film version of the comic Madman being in production. His DREAM cast included someone we all know and love.
Someone behind me asked the next obvious question: “have you cast Frank Einstein ?” “Yes, but I can’t tell you who it is yet.” [We all groan] When we announce it, you’re gonna be like ‘What ?’, then you’ll think about it for a second and see that it’s perfect.” Then came the real highlight of my day (and before anyone reads this next part, I suggest you find every single “Madman” comic you can): Mike gave us his “dream cast” of supporting actors (no one signed or called, just the people he’d love to see):
Dr. Phlegm — Gene Wilder
Jake — Steve Buscemi
Dr. Mofford — Robin Williams
Jo — Natalie Portman
And finally, tomorrow is valentines day AND NP.com’s birthday. It’s short notice but some appropriate fanart would be nice.
