True sees the light of day

Ok, lets get to it.

It seems that Paris Je T’aime WILL premiere at Cannes tomorrow but the shorts from Christoffer Boe and Rafaël Nadjari have been cut. This is great news and I can’t wait to hear what the reviews have to say. Thanks to Herzwerk.

Salvador got his hands on the Free Zone DVD and sent in his thoughts on the extras.

I received my copy of the Free Zone DVD today and I thought you’d like to read about the extras.

– Introduction to the movie by Amos Gitaï at the Festival of
I skipped this one LOL, it was basically Amos Gitai speaking over the
phone in French which I didn’t understand.

– Preparation of the opening scene
Not what I was expecting. This is pretty much exactly what you see during the opening scene, except you can hear the director telling both Natalie and Hanna what to say and do.

– Interviews of Hanna Laslo, Hiam Abbass and Natalie Portman
Three interconnected interviews. Natalie talks about her interest in being in the film, how she loved all the places they filmed in, and how it was a completely different way of working than she was used to. There’s an interesting moment towards the end, when Natalie is replying to one of the interviewer’s questions and there is suddenly a power outage of some sort. The camera lingers on Nat as she waits.

The annoying lingering cross-fades that are all over the film are
unfortunately also part of the interviews.

– Trailers
Trailers for Free Zone and some other movies.

Here is a new poll about the V for Vendetta DVD and here are the results of the previous poll…

What should we do if things get quiet in Natworld again?

Photoshop contests 28.26% (232 votes)

Some written comedy like we used to do 23.63% (194 votes)

Sing campfire songs 19.12% (157 votes)

Caption contests 14.62% (120 votes)

Post more snippets from the Magoriums script 7.06% (58 votes)

Come up with some new editorials 6.58% (54 votes)

I’ll have to see what we can do regarding the two top choices.


Forgot to mention that Dave Poland has done his first Oscar column and Goya is currently his 7th top pick in the best picture race.

Sally sent in a new old pic from the NY Garden State premiere.

Twig found a cute little Nat quote in a Jean Reno Stuff interview.

Q: Speaking of The Professional, did you have any idea that Natalie Portman would grow up to be such a woman?
A: Not really, but I knew that she was a good person and very talented and focused on being somebody.
Q: So are you able to recognize how hot she is now?
A: No. (laughs) She was a very, very little girl — 11 and a half.

    “That was just completely overwhelming,” Natalie Portman said of her first experience on the Cannes red carpet at last year’s festival for “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.”

    “I’ve never seen so many photographers and fans. I’ve never seen anything like that before,” said Portman, who co-stars in this year’s Cannes entry “Paris, I Love You,” a collection of 20 short films set in the French capital from such directors as Gus Van Sant, Alexander Payne, Alfonso Cuaron, Wes Craven and Joel and Ethan Coen….

    [Of course, Natalie must avoid Al Gore and eating dust (from Ron Howard)]
