Whilst in biblical times people lived for AGES (I think Noah was nine hundred and fifty when he died), life seems to have shortened somewhat. But whether it’s because the weight of sin has crushed our life span or we are just more clumsy, it makes it more amazing when someone lives a bit longer then average, currently 79.9 years in the U.K. So, let’s take our hats off to Gloria Stuart.
It’s been announced that Sandra Bullock – who planned to come to the UK for the premiere of The Blind Side – has pulled out at the last minute. The glitzy affair was due to take place at the Odeon in Leicester Square, but at the news of Sandra’s no-show the event has been toned down. No red carpet, we’re afraid. So what happened?
After seven years of marriage, actress Kate Winslet and director Sam Mendes have announced that their marriage is over. Sad times for all of us who wanted to believe in the celeb relationship, great news for all of us bitter about other people being married to Kate Winslet.
Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner of Twilight fame join Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus as Oscar hosts this year, a decision which some find surprising. With the teen market being marketed too so heavily, some people are worried that the Academy Awards might be losing a little of its prestige.
Set in the 1950s, Revolutionary Road centres on the relationship between Alice (Kate Winslet) and Frank Wheeler (Leo DiCaprio); a married couple in their late twenties. Seen as the shining example of wedded bliss by their friends and neighbours living on Revolutionary Road, they have two children, a secure future and a beautiful home. But beneth their flawless exterior both Alice and Frank feel as though their lives are being wasted. Revolutionary Road is a poignant, heartbreaking and piercing look into what makes up a relationship, and how it is that deep love can turn to hatred.
On December 11th, The Lovely Bones gets a limited release Stateside, with the full shebang rolling out a whole month later on the 15th. Over in the land of Blightly, we’ll get our fill of Peter Jackson’s latest a full six weeks later on January 29th, pretty much last in the world release queue. Not that we should feel maligned – the release date has been endlessly shunted about (it was originally slated for March 2008), ostensibly to ensure The Lovely Bones a spot on the Oscars shortlist.
