Great new Kristen interview!

Backstage.com has a great new interview with Kristen for 'Welcome to the Rileys', one of the best Kristen interviews i have read in a long time. In the interview Kristen talks about 'Welcome to the Rileys', here gratitude at the opportunties 'Twilight' has given her and how scripts appeal to her.

One part that really stood out for me was her obvious excitement and enthusiasm in talking about her experience shooting 'On the Road', the Walter Salles adaptation of the Jack Kerouac novel that she recently finished. Tom Sturridge (who we all know from great 'Pirate Radio' and as Rob's best friend) is also in the movie as Carlo Marx/Allen Ginsberg.

""I worked with my friend Tom Sturridge, and he plays Carlo Marx, who's Allen Ginsberg," Stewart says, excitement creeping into her voice. "And I would look over at him, and he's doing this f****** full-on Allen Ginsberg crazy monologue in the corner of some thumping, raving party, and I'm dancing to bebop jazz, and I'd be like, 'Tom, we're doing "On the Road." Just so you know? "On the Road."'"

Her excitement for this movie is just so clear.  Read the full excellent interview HERE.

Chaske to speak at Tribal Safety and Wellness Session

Chaske Spencer is to speak on Wednesday, December 8th at the Tribal Justice Safety and Wellness Session in conjunction with the Office for Victims of Crime’s (OVC) 12th National Indian Nations Conference at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel.

In June 2009, the Justice Department announced the launch of a major new initiative to increase engagement, coordination and action on public safety in tribal communities. This effort, now known as The Tribal Justice Safety and Wellness Session, was kicked off with a series of regional summits to seek input from tribal representatives. Planning sessions included department component leaders, tribal leaders and experts in relevant areas to begin a dialogue on a range of important issues including law enforcement policy and personnel; communications and consultation; grants and technical assistance; detention facilities; federal prosecution in Indian country; tribal court development; domestic violence; drug courts and substance abuse; federal litigation involving tribes; and civil rights.

Chaske is heavily involved in the area of reducing poverty and creating sustainable communities. He is engaged in several projects to that end through the non-profit UNITED GLOBAL SHIFT and his personal project SHIFT THE POWER TO THE PEOPLE. This leads to Spencer, who is a Native American from the Lakota Sioux tribe in Idaho and Montana, speaking on behalf of the tribal community.

Trailer for Rachelle's 'Casino Jack'

Check out the trailer below for Rachelle LeFevre's new movie 'Casino Jack'. The movie also stars Kevin Spacey, Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston and Jon Lovitz. (Great cast!)

"Two-time Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey gives the performance of a lifetime in 'Casino Jack', a riotous new film starring Spacey as a man hell bent on acquiring all that the good life has to offer. He plays in the same game as the highest of rollers and resorts to awe-inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get what he wants. Inspired by true events that are too over-the-top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, 'Casino Jack' lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of Jack Abramoff. Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world's most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob-connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines."

The movie is released December 29th and was directed by George Hickenlooper who sadly passed away on October 29th at the very young age of forty seven.

The first picture of (what I think is the back of) Bryce Dallas Howard in the film adaptation of the popular novel 'The Help' have been released.

The film will be directed by Stockett’s childhood friend Tate Taylor and hits theaters August 12, 2011.

Liz hangs with 'The Good Wife' for another while!

Elizabeth Reaser has been appearing in 'The Good Wife' for the past few weeks and according to Fancast.com she will be there a few more episodes;

"How many episodes of ‘The Good Wife’ will Elizabeth Reaser be in? Is she a real love interest for Will? – Trish
Josh Charles tells me that Reaser’s character, sportswriter Tammy, “is here for a little while” – at least two more episodes, I’ve heard – and that as an actor he really welcomes what this new beauty brings out in Will. “I don’t know how it all ends up, but I’m enjoying how they’re writing it,” he says. Beyond the triangle with Alicia and Peter, “It gives Will something to have on his own.”"

Check out video of her on the show below!

Trailer for Xavier's 'The Loved Ones'

Check out the trailer for Xavier's new horror movie 'The Loved Ones:
"After being spurned by high school hotshot Brent (Xavier Samuel from Twilight: Eclipse), a pretty young nutbar with a sweet smile called Lola (Robin McLeavy) exacts revenge by kidnapping him, strapping him to a chair and nailing his feet to the floor.
It's a lovely scene she's prepared for Brent, and all with the help of her loving-but-in-the-wrong-way Daddy (a glassy-eyed John Brumpton) There's a dinner table, good food, soft drink, party hats, whistles, a catatonic mother and power tools. And to keep Brent from complaining too much, Lola - aka Princess to her dad - injects bleach into his vocal chords."

This one is NOT for the faint hearted!

Rob and Kristen will go to Brazil for honeymoon scenes!

According to Alt Film Guide  after much speculation it has been confirmed that Rob and Kristen will be traveling to Brazil to film the much discussed Bella and Edward honeymoon scenes.  They will be there for five 'intense days of filming'.

Alt Film Guide say; "According to RioFilme director/president Sérgio Sá Leitão on his Twitter page, "we've made it possible to film Breaking Dawn in Rio. In order to bring in more investments, promote the city, and make the movie more realistic."
Brazilian companies Total e Zoar will handle the production in Rio, as reported in the Rio daily O Globo, while "sources close to the production" claim that Rio's old Lapa neighborhood (in the not-too-distant past well known for its male and transvestite sex workers) and an islet off the coast of the state of Rio (outside the city proper) would be Isle Esme, where Edward Cullen and Bella Swan spend their fateful honeymoon."

'Welcome to the Riley's' was given a limited release this past weekend and performed well in the ten theaters it was released in grossing $42,145. 
Whilst it doesn't sound like the film made that much this is a per theater average of $4,214, 'The Runaways' pulled in only a per theater average of $3,300. Here's hoping the executives allow more of us to see the movie over the coming weekends, I for one will be straight there!
Below are some great clips from 'Welcome to the Rileys' that we were sent from Popsugar, Kristen's performance is so amazing, even just in these small clips. Please support this movie if it is near you!
