In India, Aishwarya Rai - green-eyed Indian beauty is simply called - Ash. Now she is the most popular actress of Bollywood. And not only there. Hollywood and Europe has long been unable to resist the eastern charmer. Aishwarya's name adorned the list of "100 most influential people in the world", compiled by Times, and her curvaceous body forms are immortalized in the London Madame Tussauds museum.
- You're probably tired of endless compliments concerning your unearthly beauty ...
I do not believe them. But I always spiritually thank for them.
- Why do not you believe them?
Because beauty is not eternal. All this will change.
- But your title "Miss World" will not go away anywhere?
At these competitions I didn't represent myself, but my country. This is not Aishwarya then appeared, and India. I identified with my country, and I was very proud. I always knew that I'll never get into Olympics, so I think this contest is the opportunity to represent my homeland. It was important to me, but not the main thing. Then I started traveling. Incidentally, it turned out that I was very busy "Miss World" in the history of this competition. Where have not I visited! And I learned how little the world knows about India. Nobody even knew what it looks like an Indian. All took me for an Italian or Spanish, or, at worst, a mulatto woman - just because I have light eyes and skin. All were surprised, when I was spoken in English. Surprised that an Indian can be educated!
- Has your light skin ever interfere with your career? Indians are duskier.
I've never look at myself from this angle. As, fortunately, my directors. I always tailor my appearance to the heroin that I've played. By nature I have brown hair, but I always color it into the black. In many movies I wear dark contact lenses...
- What color are your eyes? Green?
My father always compared them to the sea. He said that they are aquamarine. In general, the color changes depending on the mood and the clothes I wear. But sometimes I play the Indian women with their eyes and hair.
This year, at Venice film fest, Mani Ratnamu - favorite director of Aishwarya has gotten prestigious award "Glory film director" and show his latest film "Raavan"- not only with Aishwarya, but with her husband Abishek Bachchan.
- To your name was added surname Bachchan: you become a part of the famous acting clan.
Yes, I've married with the son of the famous actor Amitabh Bachchan. We have the typical actor's family. We had our wedding in April 2008, after the end of my shooting in a large-scale historical canvas planned to spend time together. And then offer to play in continuing the "Pink Panther" with Steve Martin and Jean Reno. I hesitated, but my husband said: "This happens once in life. Agree, because we both grew up on films about the "Pink Panther". Steve Martin - King of Comedy! Well I did as he said.
The biggest project in the American box office over the weekend without a doubt became the fourth series of "Resident Evil", directed by Paul Anderson and supporting the three-dimensional format. Also, albeit in a limited release, American viewers can see clearly an exciting project "I'm still here" by Casey Affleck, telling us about amazing transformation of a famous Hollywood actor in the hip-hop star.
The picture, taken by Paul Anderson, left quite a curious chamber horror a la "Aliens", gathered a good harvest at the box and giving a life to a sequel, more oriented to action.
Anderson himself was not averse to a director to do the second series, as he has no free time, while the studio demanded a continuation of the banquet as soon as possible. Commercial "Resident Evil" was more successful than its predecessor.
Fresh released movie "Resident Evil: After death" continues to outline predecessors (which is not really surprising: writer and curator of the project as all the same Anderson). The authors do not shy talking about 3D as one of the merits of the film - and it must be noted, not without reason. Tape was originally filmed in three-dimensional format, and because the film is full of episodes and scenes, specially sharpened under 3D. With the screen in the auditorium flies a huge ax, and even with the stroke of the opening credits in the air, bucking a drop of blood.
American critics have smashed to smithereens the new movie. Competently done 3D - this is fine, but authors forgotten about further development of the plot.
"A good action - and really nothing else" - Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com.
"The reason for viewing - perfect 3D. The reason for that not to see this movie - everything else"- Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review.
" After Death" is even more disappointing than the previous films, if only because the creators of each picture does not add anything new, except for non-original episodes, filmed in slow rhythm, bad play-acting and rambling storyline" - Wilson Morales , AOL Black Voices.
"In the end, though the film is not original and not clever, it is not so bad" - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media.
"A fool on the brink, but incredibly entertaining film" - Alex Zane, Sun Online.
"Dull, incoherent, chaotic film" - Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com.
"Only for fans"- film critic Emanuel Levy.
"I'm still here".
In autumn 2008, Joaquin Phoenix made a surprise announcement: The popular actor has decided to change his profession - to become a popular rapper. Furthermore, he doesn't even want to read some abstract lyrics on the label Anticon (where there are a lot of white hip-hop creators) and the most widely accessible rap, which even drew hip-hop mogul P. Diddy. The progress is worthy wildest conceptual art actions. The man has grown a beard, bloated, put on a dark glasses.
On the few concerts Phoenix ran on the viewer with his fists. Many did not know what to think, really star of "Gladiator" and "Walk the Line" became mad. But the shroud of mist clouded after reports that Casey Affleck has chosen the story metamorphoses actor for his feature documentary debut.
Allegations of fraud and lottery (if so, what a joke failed or clearly gone too far) Affleck sweeps, but Joaquin Phoenix has shaved his beard and changed his image again.
"I'm still here" has already demonstrated in the Venice Film Festival. The project, of course, is very attractive and bright, but American critics have another opinion.
"Most likely, it's all draw over us. The problem is that the joke was not funny. Actually, it is brutal "- Tom Long, Detroit News.
"If it is a fake, its creators have earned an Oscar for ingenuity "- Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald.
"An elegant experiment with different actors playing the central character, but still not so interesting" - Radneyan Simonpilay, AskMen.com.
On Sept. 17 at the American box office started a film "The Devil" by Dowdle brothers, "Easy A" by Will Gluck, as well as a new picture of one more representative of Affleck family - Ben - "The Town" and many other films.
Discussions on the possible extension of the comedy thriller "True Lies" have not ceased since the film was released in 1994. But hardly anyone could think that James Cameron will make a famous film in the series.
It is worth noting that the very "True Lies" was a remake of French comedy "La Totale!", which was released in 1991. In Cameron movie Arnold Schwarzenegger has played a major role. His hero, being a spy, creating a happy life for his wife, who believes that she is married to a simple clerk, anxious for adventure.
According to the site Deadline Hollywood Daily, the Cameron company Lightstorm Entertainment in cooperation with the Fox channel are going to shoot the TV version of "True Lies". For the director of "Avatar" it will be a second experience of producing a television series: on his account is fantastic drama "Dark Angel" with Jessica Alba. The series lasted two seasons and now is in director list as a probable full-length project.
Once, "True Lies" considered one of the most expensive projects. The budget is comprised of one hundred to 120 million dollars. It fees amounted to 378 million in worldwide box office, and the criticism has been mostly positive.
Five years ago, Tom Arnold, who took part in "True Lies", starred in the comedy "The Kid and I", where he played maturing actor hired by a billionaire for the filming of the movie is very similar to the Cameron film. In the picture have glowed even performers of the main roles in "True Lies, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Few days ago we were able to watch the first episode of the second season of "The Vampire Diaries". A series is predictably called "The Return", that is, return of a series on the broad (and other) screens, and the return of the main villain - a vampire Catherine (Nina Dobrev).
The second season begins exactly with the same place when finished the first season. Fortunately, at home back Helen and malicious Catherine fearing her runs briskly.
A groaning John has been rushed to the hospital, where he quickly returned to his former health.
Well, you know that, as in "Crank 2": "He has died, but he felt better."
Stupid Jeremy, committed suicide at the end of last season, even that could not be done as follows - Stephan it without straining pumped and even shook his finger, saying that he did not do so more. The son of the murdered innocent drinks, cries that the dad was a fool, that's why he died.
Also, instead of fleeing in panic vigorous Jew Soltsman, we see another looser-uncle, this time for Tyler. Uncle is older his nephew at least for a year and a half, but he is muscular and curly, and definitely like a female audience.
Meanwhile, Salvatore gets to know that Catherine is alive. Damon greatly suffered and looked forward for Catherine reciprocity, Stephan rightly assumes that anything good this plot twist is not threatened, Nina Dobrev breaks, playing two people at one time (and pretty well, by the way!) and Caroline doesn't say and do nothing, because she is breathless at the hospital.
Overall, a very good episode - the rate is set very true, the characters rush hither and thither. Damon heavily weighs on compassion (Judging by tearful girls' reviews - successfully), Stephan is pumped by brutal lines and the theme of werewolves is almost not been touched.
Looking forward for new episode!
Hollywood prepares expansion on small Sweden: in the coming weeks in several parts of the country will begin shooting of an English version of "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by David Fincher.
Already confirmed shooting on location near Stockholm and Uppsala, located in the eastern part of Sweden. Coming alteration of numerous building facades on the street Uppsala Drottninggatan. This is done to give it the appearance of the Sixties. Of course, the facades remain intact: filmmakers will build there special decorations.
Residents of Uppsala have to accept the inconveniences associated with street closures. Several bus lines have changed their routes at least for a month.
One of the key locations will likely become an estate near the town of Katrineholm, in 140 kilometers from Stockholm. It was there that planned to rent a house of elderly industrialist Henrik Wanger, who ordered to the journalist Mikael Blomqvist (Daniel Craig) investigating of the disappearance of his niece. The manor under Katrinenholm is quite old: its foundation was laid in the 14th century.
It was assumed that the film crew will be on-site surveys at home Wanger in October, but construction cannot boast one hundred percent ready.
A number of scenes, of course, will be filmed in Stockholm and the three adjacent islands.
Meanwhile, actress, Rooney Mara, who will play hacker Lisbeth Salander, has for some time included in the role and trains to ride a motorcycle.
1). Premiere of the movie "Fast and the Furious 5" will be released simultaneously on standard screens and at network of cinemas IMAX. It is announced in a joint press release IMAX Corporation and film studios Universal Pictures. Both sides are confident that this film is ideal for demonstrations on giant screens as a Digital IMAX.
The film will take place in Brazil, where go the main characters Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian O `Conner (Paul Walker). In Rio de Janeiro, they are going to crank the last case, which will give them long-awaited freedom. The film will be released in June 2011.
2). Film studio Paramount plans to turn the popular television show "Invincible Warrior", broadcasted via television channel Spike TV, a full-length film. As reports LatinoReview resource, an agreement was signed with the company 21 Laps Entertainment, which will adapt the program for the big screen.
The essence of the show is to provide a virtual duel of two soldiers from one epoch or two historical figures, such as late medieval knight and Pirates of the Caribbean, or against a Spartan warrior ninja, or Green Berets against the Russian riot police officer, or a Shaolin monk against the Maori, or Attila against Alexander of Macedon. Expert Group, which includes both historians and experts on arms, evaluates weapons and protective equipment of soldiers. The data are analyzed by special computer simulator, and then himself match played on the screen with the actors.
At the time of writing this note, Spike TV has completed the second season of the program.
3). The shooting of film based on the popular Japanese anime "Cowboy Bebop" has been postponed indefinitely. This was explained by Keanu Reeves, who intended to play a major role in the movie, in an interview with resource Collider. According to the actor, the cause of "freezing" of the project lies in its excessively high cost. The cost of all work under the scenario plan Reeves estimated at about $ 500 million. The actor claims that do not know the fate of the project. Recall that in a series of Japanese anime "Cowboy Bebop" is about a group of bounty hunters and their adventures while traveling in outer space.
Previously it was assumed that Reeves will play a character named Spike Spiegel.
He has been filming for more than ten years, and has a significant advancement in his career, as a screenwriter, Wentworth Miller is still inextricably linked with the only role: battling brothers - Michael Scofield in the TV series "Prison Break". Soon, however, all possible changes, as Miller took the lead in a feature film playing Chris Redfild in "Resident Evil: Afterlife". And though Chris - the main character in the cult video game after three released movies, he appears for the first time, reunite with his sister, Claire (Ali Larter) and teaming up with Alice (Milla Jovovich) in their journey to end the corporation Umbrella.
- Tell us about your role in the movie?
Well, I'm playing Chris Redfild. It is obvious that he was the protagonist in a video game from the start, but he first appears in the film version of "Resident Evil", so it was a kind of a problem, preparing for this part. I wanted to make my own study of the image and see what that would justify the expectation of fans, in this case be handled with respect to what has been, in terms of mythology and history. This idea was not far from the truth, and my job was to ensure that emerged in the fourth part, quietly become a part of this whole. I like to think that I have made all efforts to be among those who influenced the process changes.
- If you - Claire's brother, why did not she come back before and get you just in this fourth film?
This is an excellent question. There is a sort of reunion between the two in this part of the movie. This is the dynamic that I like about Chris and Claire Redfield, and that, I think, brings a new flavor, it is the fact that they - a brother and sister. This is - family relations. This is what the people sitting in the room can easily relate with themselves. Movies crammed with special effects and zombies - spectacular show. But at the same time, if you do not care about the characters of heroes, later, when with them is something terrible, this response and empathy does not arise. Thus, it was important to outline in detail the characters and the relationship between Chris and Claire, primarily to give additional weight to "buffet" of special effects.
- Zombies are pretty popular thing in modern culture. How do you think, why are they an inexhaustible source for fiction and horror?
I think there is something evil in this recklessness and ruthlessness, which is incredibly frightening and impossible to stop. This onslaught of terror, I think, speaks to our darkest fears of the evil that comes to us, and there is nothing we can do about it.
- When you become a part of something like this, do you go back to the video game as to the source, or do you view the movie itself?
It was a symbiosis of both. I asked producers to add and connect together the most significant events from video games which were directly related to the personal files of my hero, so I could get close to where it actually occurred. I was struck by how (at least in the earlier video games) he looked like a clear-eyed, with a thick tail hair. Someone who is only at the beginning of this horrific way. And then you meet him in the movie, and he has many miles from the start. He - quite a different person with other premonitions.
- How was it to be a new guy in the shooting team?
It was pretty smooth. They are - a great team with which you can work together, and there are obviously significant and complex framework, which Paul and Milla have created together. Like Paul has built a car and Mila is driving, while the rest of our team is going with them, and in parallel shot from the shotgun. It was only a chance to jump on board and immediately feel the breeze in the hair.
"Girl, Interrupted" - a film with an excellent and original story, excellent acting game, and charming actress Angelina Jolie.
On this movie, I only knew that Angelina Jolie has gotten an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress after playing here. The same movie I was not particularly interested in, but I decided to buy a DVD with this film and watch. The film is simply incomparable.
The plot at first seems completely ordinary and banal, but after watching this film, you immediately realize that this is not true. The film begins with the fact that a girl named Suzanne Keisei has been brought to the hospital and tried to "pump out" after she swallowed an aspirin and drunk with vodka. All at once it is due to attempt suicide, But Suzanne herself said that she just had a bad headache and she would just get rid of a headache and she did not want to kill herself. But her parents and a doctor (part-time friend of her parents) all still convinced Susanne better to go to a psychiatric hospital and receive medical treatment there. Suzanne has no way out and she went to the hospital. There she meets a lot of new people, which became her new friends. The closest to her becomes Lisa.
She is a very long time in this hospital and she had for herself and understands that she will stay there forever. Suzanne life varies greatly, and sometimes not for the better. But Suzanne has still has a chance to be cured and leave clinic. That's interesting.
As I said the movie is simply amazing. This is a very powerful thriller film. Also the movie makes us think about many things. In this movie, everything is fine. Just watch it you can not once but many and it would still be interesting for you.
Acting is one of the strongest sides of the film. Winona Ryder, Brittany Murphy, Clea Duvall, Whoopi Golberg, Jared Leto they all played just fine. But most of all I want to highlight, of course Angelina Jolie. She is a wonderful actress, and in this film she played just great.
"Girl, Interrupted"- a film that everyone should see!
