Actors And Athletes In Save The Children’s New Film Hit The Ground Running
Save the Children today launched a star-studded film featuring actress Isla Fisher, Disney actor Cameron Boyce, Bollywood megastar Kunal Kapoor and Kenyan former world record marathon holder Patrick Makau, to promote its World Marathon Challenge for kids.
The World Marathon Challenge, a global relay race in which teams of kids come together to complete a full marathon, is taking place globally throughout the month of October, and involves more than 50,000 children in 67 countries. The relay race aims to raise awareness and funds for programs focused on child survival and well-being.
The short film has each of the stars running a leg of the race in different corners of the world. The film kicks off in Kenya with athlete Patrick Makau deftly gliding through the rural countryside. It then cuts to Bollywood’s Kunal Kapoor as he charges past ruins on the outskirts of Mumbai, before passing the baton to the safe hands of Isla Fisher in the United States. Cameron Boyce (“Grown Ups,” “Grown Ups 2”) then takes center stage in Los Angeles, with baton-twirling breakdance moves his fans will love.
Last week Isla attended the Australians In Film Awards Gala in Beverley Hills, and looked super chic in a little black lace dress. Isla was on hand to present the Orry-Kelly International Award to her The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann (who was not present), and posed backstage with Robert Pattinson.
Isla Fisher presented Baz Luhrman with one of two Orry-Kelly International awards tonight. The Great Gatsby director couldn’t be there to accept in person, so she announced that she’d take home his boomerang statuette, teasing: “My first award!” Isla also couldn’t resist comparing the title of the honor to the R&B singer with a very similar name: R. Kelly. When Rob presented the second of the statuettes to Blue Tongue shortly after Isla, he said he was chagrined she’d already made the first R. Kelly-related crack. Then, he jokingly referred to the honor as “the golden shower award,” earning the evening’s biggest roar of laughter from the crowd. In typical self-deprecating form, Rob also wondered out loud if he should ditch his “insanely” generic written speech, but ultimately decided against it after the crowd urged him to keep reading.

I’m very excited to share these fabulous HD screencaptures from Now You See Me with you today! Isla looks gorgeous in the film, and you know I always love the extra prettyness of HD. I really loved this film – it was thrilling and entertaining, and had a really awesome cast. I particularly loved Isla and Jesse Eisenberg’s chemistry and hope they get to make many more films together because they worked so well together! I would’ve liked to have seen more of their relationship throughout the film, as well as a bit more focus on the Four Horsemen rather than the FBI, but that is my only quibble with the film. I’d definitely recommend watching the movie if you haven’t already done so, it’s one of Isla’s best.
Remember when I said Isla was on the cover of several of the current international editions of Cosmopolitan? Well it seems her Cosmo take-over is bigger than I thought! She has appeared on no less than 10 Cosmopolitan magazine covers in August/September this year – pretty impressive, I think! I have added all of these covers to our Gallery – click the thumbnails below to see them all. I really like the green tinted ones from Greece and Cyprus. We have a full set of scans from the Italian, Russian and original UK editions, but if anyone can provide us with scans from the other editions then drop me a line
Back in May Isla appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Chelsea Lately to promote Now You See Me, and I have now added HQ photos and HD screencaptures from them to our Gallery. Isla looked gorgeous on both shows, and I particularly like her cute hair and little cream dress on Chelsea Lately.
You can watch the Chelsea Lately interview further down this post – Isla and Chelsea are friends ‘off screen’ I believe and you can see this in their chat as it was a very fun interview! I haven’t found a video from Leno to post yet, but am working on that. I was surprised when I remembered that this was Isla’s first appearance on Leno’s show! They talked about Isla’s name, her novel writing past, and Now You See Me, and Isla also did a card trick with them.
Enjoy HQ photos and screencaptures from these TV appearances in the Gallery…
The Great Gatsby is released on DVD and Blu-ray in the US today, and I have a fabulous bunch of HD screencaptures from the film for you! I really enjoyed the film – it had a great cast, and looked and sounded great, and it’s probably one of my favourites of the year so far. Isla was ravishing as Myrtle and I thought she gave a really different performance from anything we’ve seen her do before – I was quite taken aback at how different she was, although did notice some of her trademark quirks thrown in too. I just wished we could’ve seen more of Myrtle!
Enjoy the beautiful screencaptures in our Gallery, and don’t forget that they will obviously contain spoilers!! If you haven’t seen the movie yet then be sure to track down a copy
As posted about on our Twitter, Isla is on the cover of several of the international editions of Cosmopolitan magazine this month, including Italy, Russia, Ukraine and Australia! Earlier in the week I added scans from the Russian and Italian editions to our Gallery.
Pick up a copy of the magazines if you can, international fans!
The Gallery has been updated again with another batch of pictures in a variety of albums. Best of all these additions, are some fantastic HQ stills from Isla’s recent tv appearances on Daybreak and This Morning – we already had regular sized photos from them, but thanks to our star DeA we now have them much bigger, so they are worth another look or two! Other new uploads include more HQs of Isla outside the ITV Studios for the aforementioned talk shows, and a new photoshoot picture taken for UK Stella magazine.
