Happy New Year from Isla Fisher Web

December 31st 2010 • by Jess • No CommentsPersonal, Website

I’d like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! I hope you have a fun night if you’re celebrating tonight, and that 2011 is a wonderful and happy year for you!

Professionally it’s been a very quiet year for Miss Isla, although personally she’s (reportedly) had a pretty fantastic year, what with a marriage and new baby! Early next we’ll be treated to hearing Isla in the animated comedy Rango, and hopefully we’ll get some other new projects too. Thanks for your support of Isla Fisher Web this year – the site has undergone a change in owner and I hope to continue bringing you the best on Isla in 2011!

New parents go for star quality

December 23rd 2010 • by Jess • No CommentsPersonal

They have both been gracing the big screen this year, and it seems stars Daniel Radcliffe and Isla Fisher might also have been influencing the parents of Edinburgh.

Daniel and Isla have topped the chart of most popular baby names in the Capital, after a year in which Radcliffe returned to our screens as Harry Potter and Fisher featured as Ginny in Burke and Hare.

Daniel has shot up the chart from fifth place last year, knocking Jack from the top spot, while for Isla it is the second year at the top of the chart.

Also popular for boys in Edinburgh this year were Alexander and James, with Sophie and Olivia second and third for girls.

However, Daniel didn’t even appear in the charts for West Lothian or Midlothian, with Jack the favourite in both areas.

In East Lothian, Oliver was top of the list, followed by Daniel, then Lewis. Emily was the most popular girl’s name, with Isla second and Ava third.

Theatrical trailer and new posters for “Rango”

December 15th 2010 • by Jess • No CommentsProjects, Videos

Yahoo Movies has today posted the full theatrical trailer for Isla’s upcoming animated project Rango! While we don’t actually hear Isla speak, there’s a few shots of a red-headed creature in a blue dress throughout the trailer who at one point Rango refers to as Nora (?), and I’d say it’s a safe bet that that’s Isla character 😉 View the embedded trailer below, or head on over to Yahoo Movies to view it in HD.

I’ve posted a short review/comment on the trailer from the always excellent Cinema Blend. Let’s hope Rango is a hit for Miss Isla! What are your thoughts on the trailer?

As well as that, 2 new posters for the movie has been released which you can view just below.

You can visit the official site for the movie at rangomovie.com. Find official international release dates for Rango here.

New posters for Rango New posters for Rango

While most of the marketing campaign has focused on the Hawaiian-shirt-wearing chameleon Rango and the slightly surreal world that surrounds him (including the teaser poster that hit yesterday), the trailer puts a little more emphasis on the residents of the frontier town Dirt, all of them lizards and moles and other desert creatures. Far more than just some surrealist journey across the desert with Johnny Depp voicing a chameleon, Rango seems to be more like an old-fashioned Western about building society, standing up for what’s right and learning to get along with the people around you. Oh, and it also looks really funny and has some burp jokes– it’s a Nickelodeon-produced movie after all.

Not all of the jokes hit that well in the trailer, but having seen that early barroom scene where he burps fire in its entirety, I have a feeling they all work better in context. I’m excited for Rango not just because it looks genuinely original in a world plagued by reboots and sequels (hello, Yogi Bear), but because this trailer looks like it’ll deliver on its promise.


“Rango” preview report from Latino Review

More details on Rango from LatinoReview.com


If you know anything about Rango, it’s most likely from seeing the posters and banners hung at your local theater chain. It’s the one that pictures a chameleon in a red Hawaiian shirt against the background of the blue desert sky. It’s a children’s movie from Paramount and Nickelodeon Studios, but I’d venture a guess that the similarity between the Rango poster and the poster from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is completely intentional. That’s the type of movie it looks like Rango is going to be – not a straight Hunter S. Thompson children’s movie, but one that is none-the-less slightly off-kilter.
I was invited up to the Paramount screening room in Time Square to view some footage for Rango and listen to Gore Verbinksi (the director of the Pirates trilogy, now turned to ILM’s first character-animation film) describe his quirky little family comedy.

Previously on this site, you could have read a description of what fellow LR staffer Ron Henriques saw, including a breakdown of the footage and some pretty stills, but apparently that’s not supposed to be what we’re telling or showing you from a marketing perspective. Please note the above screencap of a “Rango” Google Image search, because I’m not supposed to show you any of these readily available images either.

Kristin Scott Thomas loves Isla

December 7th 2010 • by Jess • No Comments"Confessions of a Shopaholic"

Isla’s Confessions Of A Shopaholic co-star Kristin Scott Thomas mentioned Isla in a recent interview:

Name some actors that you like to watch.

Meryl Streep is my hero. I like to watch Scarlett Johansson and Joaquin Phoenix too. I also really love Isla Fisher because of whom I did Confessions of a Shopaholic, which really is a movie where I had no business being in.
