Happy Birthday Isla!

February 3rd 2011 • by Jess • 1 Comment »News & Gossip

Today is a special day, as we celebrate our lovely Isla’s 35th birthday! I’d like to wish her a very Happy Birthday, and I hope she spends a perfect day with her loved ones. And I hope the year ahead brings her all she wishes for! Leave your birthday messages for Isla by posting a comment on this post, if you’d like to.

Today also marks this site’s birthday! Isla Fisher Web was opened by Maria & Riikka on this day back in 2008, meaning we turn 3 years old today.

So to celebrate this special day, I’ve made a small Gallery update with some rare/previously unposted photos. I’ve added a few really old and rare photoshoots from unknown years, in which Isla looks so cute! I’ve also added a new-old photoshoot that was seen in GQ magazine in 2009, and is absolutely stunning! Isla looks amazing in it, and it’s definitely one of my favourite photoshoots. There’s also a photoshoot from Elle back in 2008, which hadn’t been added here til now.

And, another fun rare & exclusive treat – I’ve added screencaps from the Home & Away special ‘Weddings’ DVD, which features a few shots of Shannon at a Summer Bay wedding way back when. These are the first photos from the soap that have been posted here at IFW, so I hope enjoy them. I know I personally always loved Isla as Shannon 😉

As I’ve mentioned before, I am planning to re-vamp the Gallery so look forward to more rare photoshoots and Home & Away photos (as well as lots more other stuff too) in there! And for this same reason I won’t be updating the current Gallery (unless anything new pops up) as everything will be saved and posted in the re-vamped Gallery.

Movie Studios Line Up Super Bowl Commercials

February 1st 2011 • by Jess • No Comments"Rango"

With less than a week remaining until this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV, football fans are gearing up for the showdown between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. But for everyone else, the game means brand new commercials and, in this case, movie trailers!

30-second ads during the most-watched event of the year ran the studios roughly $3 million this year, up slightly from 2010 when a record 106 million people watched the big game, according to THR. It seems as though Fox and Warner Bros are either sitting this one out or keeping their ads under wraps. We’ll be posting those movie-related commercials right here as they come online, but, for now, here is a list of what to expect on Sunday:

Rango (Paramount): An animated film directed by Gore Verbinski about a chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero, but finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it. Starring (the voices of) Johnny Depp, Timothy Olyphant, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Bill Nighy.

New Layout at Isla Fisher Web!

January 30th 2011 • by Jess • 7 CommentsWebsite

After 2 years with the previous layout, as you can see we now have a fabulous new layout here at Isla Fisher Web! This bold and beautiful layout was made for us by former owner Mycah, and I love it! I think it really matches Isla’s vibrant, bold and colourful personality. So I hope you lovely visitors enjoy it too – leave a comment if you’d like to say something!

Along with the new layout comes a major site re-vamp – almost. I’m converting the content over to a new format (won’t make a difference for you, don’t worry) and updating and adding to it as I do so. This is taking a while, though! So you can see what’s to come on each of the sections linked in the navigation, but none of the pages work yet. I’m getting to work on it asap, so please be patient. Once this is done Isla Fisher Web will be brimming with all the fun and informative Isla content you could hope for!

I’ll also be re-vamping the Gallery/Media section, but look out for more news on that in the near future.

I hope you all like the new layout, and check back here regularly for Isla-tastic updates :) If you have any suggestions for content or updates – anything – then don’t hesitate to give me a shout and I will get right on that.

Isla to voice the Tooth Fairy in animated “Rise of the Guardians”

January 28th 2011 • by Jess • 1 Comment »"Rise Of The Guardians", Rumoured Roles

Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin and Isla Fisher will voice the lead roles in DreamWorks Animation’s 3D epic “Rise of the Guardians.”

Peter Ramsey is directing the pic based on “The Guardians of Childhood,” an upcoming series of children’s books by William Joyce, who will co-direct.

Guillermo del Toro and Michael Siegel are exec producing, while Christina Steinberg and Nancy Bernstein will serve as producers.

Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the screenplay, which follows a group of heroic childhood legends, each with extraordinary abilities. When Pitch (Law), an evil spirit akin to the boogeyman, lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.

Project was originally announced in December 2009, with Leonardo DiCaprio voicing Jack Frost, a role Pine will be taking over. He’ll be joined by Jackman’s Bunnymund (the Easter Bunny), Baldwin’s North (Santa Claus) and Fisher’s Tooth (the Tooth Fairy).

“It’s a thrill to be working with such an all-star team of actors and filmmakers,” Bill Damaschke, DWA’s chief creative officer, said in a statement to Variety. “When we bring Bill Joyce’s imaginative vision to the screen in 2012, audiences will experience an incredible story with a truly epic sense of adventure.”

DWA will release the film on Nov. 21, 2012.

“Rango” given MPAA rating of PG

January 21st 2011 • by Jess • No Comments"Rango"

The Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Ratings Administration dished out ratings for Rango and Something Borrowed in their weekly bulletin this afternoon.

Rango was rated PG for “rude humor, language, action and smoking.” While a PG is a somewhat rare rating for an animated movie, it’s not altogether surprising for Rango given its western setting. Directed by Gore Verbinski and featuring the vocal talents of Johnny Depp, Rango opens March 4 opposite Beastly, The Adjustment Bureau and Take Me Home Tonight.
