News Roundup - Photoshoot, MAOW, PH

1) Photoshoot/Cover possible:

It is unclear what magazine this is for, or if they are even for the same magazines. But it does seem like a photoshoot is coming up. The question is, what for?

This leads us to...

2) September release for MAOW?

A good reason Zac'd be doing a photoshoot now would obviously be for MAOW promotion. The timing is about right for fall magazines... and according to a recent interview with James Tupper in a Buffalo, NY newspaper, September may be MAOW's month of release, despite previous rumors of October:

There was also a four-episode arc as Christina Applegate’s suitor on “Samantha Who?” and a role in the feature “Me and Orson Welles” opposite Zac Efron, Claire Danes and Ben Chaplin. It will open in theaters in September, about the same time as the medical drama “Mercy,” Tupper’s second series as a regular, will premiere on NBC.

If he's getting covers of magazines, it seems like they are gearing up for a big promotion. But with no major distributor and no date announced it is all very, very mysterious. We all know how amazing Zac's team is though at getting him on the right covers and shows.

I also hope that the journalist did not just accidentally misread the date for the TIFF premiere as 2009 instead of 2008. That kind of thing has happened before. :/

As per usual, wait and see :D

Third thing got kind of long so I put it under a cut: Collapse )

and two pics for fun:
