No Fairy Tale
No Fairy Tale
Over the past week or so I’ve been adding various additional HQ appearance photos to our Gallery, some of which are HQ versions of pictures we previously had, others are new. The update includes half of the Bachelorette New York premiere pictures being replaced with HQs, a few additional press conference HQs, and a handful more HQs from one of my favourite Isla looks, the Wedding Crashers New York premiere. Click the Last Uploads link below to see them all – as of right now they go back to page 6.
I still have some additional photos from the Rango Los Angeles and London premieres, then all the appearance HQs I have will be uploaded
EDITED: I have persevered and finished adding the rest of the HQ photos I have from the Rango promotional events in Los Angeles and London! Isla looks fantastic at both, as you probably remember, but the Los Angeles premiere look is definitely one of my all-time favourite looks from her. Again, most of these additional photos are HQ replacements of pictures we previously had in a smaller resolution.
Bachelorette was released in Australia last Thursday, and it did very well at the box office over the weekend, entering the Top 10 at #2! Congrats to the cast and crew
Argo continues to thrill Aussie audiences
BEN Affleck’s thriller Argo has held onto its No.1 spot in Australian cinemas for a second week.
Taking more than $1.813 million at the box office, the true story about efforts to smuggle Americans out of Iran during the hostage drama of 1979, was clearly the favourite movie at the weekend, according to figures released by the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.
Coming in second was the new US comedy Bachelorette, which stars Aussies Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher along with US stars Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan. Bachelorette, which is about a night before the wedding that goes wrong, took $841,263 on its debut weekend.
Another newcomer End of Watch, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, debuted at No.3, earning $738,324 at the box office.
Taken 2 was pushed down to fourth place, but in four weeks the film has taken more than $18 million at Australian cinemas, while Paranormal Activity 4 sits at fifth place.
Digital Pass $1 for first 28 Days
French comedy/drama The Intouchables continues its popularity at Aussie cinemas. A true story based on a friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his charismatic ex-con carer, the film sits at sixth place after five weeks in cinemas.
The screen version of Housos vs Authority debuted at seventh place, while sci-fi thriller Dredd finished eighth.
Tim Burton’s black-and-white animation Frankenweenie sits at ninth, while Oliver Stone’s drug-dealing drama Savages fell four places to 10th.
Great news Isla fans, Miss Fisher graces the cover of the new Winter issue of Women’s Health magazine! I can’t be 100% sure, but I think this is the UK edition. Isla looks fantastic in the new photoshoot, and alongside it is a new interview in which Isla touches on several subjects, including her husband, her body, and her Aussie pals. It’s so exciting to see Isla on the cover of a big magazine again, especially one as different and interesting as Women’s Health!
Below are some released quotes from the interview, and you can see the cover and first two photoshoot pictures in our gallery. I will have scans for you asap.
The magazine hits UK (?) news-stands on Wednesday.
• “After doing that [Wedding Crashers], I had 12 months where I was auditioning three times a day and I didn’t get a single job. That was a real low point. But with hindsight, those movies turned out to be awful, so I dodged a bullet. If I’d got any of them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
• “I never had the chutzpah to just come to LA and make it. I didn’t have that confidence. I’m always surprised when I get a job. I never saw this in my horizon.”
• “I do watch my food. But I’ve been blessed in that I never had any body issues during pregnancy. I loved being able to eat whatever I wanted and the whole experience of giving life. And I never worried about losing the weight afterwards, because breastfeeding burns all the calories up so fast. Breastfeeding – that’s my big slimming secret! That and Spanx. Anytime anyone compliments me on my figure, I’m wearing my Spanx undies.”
• “I’m not actually very good at the maintenance thing. I don’t buff, exfoliate, pluck, rinse, moisturise, suck, bleach, whatever all those women do. I don’t have vajacials. Have you heard of those? It’s like a spa for your vagina!”
• (On her fellow Aussie stars) “We can all do the accent really easily. And we all look great in a bikini. Including Russell Crowe – no one pulls off a bikini like Russell. I am sort of friends with them all. I just did a movie with Hugh Jackman [Rise Of The Guardians], and I catch up with Naomi [Watts] whenever I’m in New York.”
• (On converting to Judaism) “It takes a couple of years of studying. I’ve always been really into family and food, so culturally it was the right fit for me.”
• (On Rango co-stars Johnny Depp and Bill Nighy) “He’s like a magical creature – incredibly funny, clever and nice. It’s sort of as if he’s come from another planet. And Bill Nighy is very warm, gregarious and very talented. He played the snake in Rango and was hilarious on set.”
21 Animated Features Submitted for Oscar Consideration
Twenty-one animated features, ranging alphabetically from Adventures in Zambezia to Zarafa, have been submitted for Academy Award consideration. Under Academy rules, since there are more than 16 films submitted, a maximum of five films may be nominated when nominees are announced Jan. 10.
This year’s submissions include entries from major animation houses like Pixar’s Brave, Disney’s Frankenweenie and Wreck-It Ralph, DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and Rise of the Guardians, Fox/Blue Sky Studio’s Ice Age: Continental Drift, Universal/Illumination’s Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Sony Animation’s Hotel Translyvania and Focus/Laika’s ParaNorman.
The entries also include a bumper crop of indie and foreign-made animated efforts. Adventures in Zambezia, for example, hails from South Africa and its characters are birds that live near Africa’s Victoria Falls. Zarafa is a French-made film about a young boy who escapes slave traders and befriends a giraffe.
Great news for US fans, as Isla will be appearing on Live With Kelly & Michael on Monday 12th November. This will be to promote Rise Of The Guardians. Make sure you tune in!!
I’ll do my best to bring you videos and screencaptures from the show asap after.
Hello Isla fans! I have an Isla-tastic update for you today – thanks to my friend Maria I’ve been able to replace our Definitely, Maybe film screencaptures with fantastic HD ones!! These caps are full HD, as in 1920px wide, and are just gorgeous. This is my 2nd favourite Isla film (behind Confessions!), and Isla is so warm and funny in it, so I loved being reminded of that by looking through these caps. Isla and Ryan Reynolds have such great chemistry together, I really hope they work together again in the future. Remember that these caps do contain spoilers … but really, you should’ve seen the film by now, right?!
I hope you enjoy these screencaps as much as I did. If you did, go and pay Maria a visit after you’ve finished browsing them, to thank her for her hard work for us
The Australian Sunday Telegraph published a new interview with Isla today, to promote Bachelorette. Read it in our press section!
Hollywood’s just crazy about Isla Fisher
Of her own marriage, Fisher says she’s been incredibly lucky to have found her soulmate.
“Choosing to be together every day is incredibly romantic,” she says. “I love marriage. I think it’s a wonderful institution and it’s the most important decision you make.
“Life is filled with highs and lows, and you have a best friend to share it with you. It’s amazing.
“It’s like winning the lottery, having a good partner.”
