Are We Officially… hanging out








UK 'Paperboy' Trailer

I like that trailer a lot more, js.

Some other Paperboy stuff:


Some nice things Nicole has said while she's been campaigning for a GG nom….

From hitfix:
Q: When it played at Cannes were you surprised by some of the reaction? Or did you expect it based on the material?  I have to be honest, it felt like a movie that would have gotten a stronger reception at a festival like Sundance.

It’s out of the box, but a lot of the films I do are like that. It’s a different kind of movie and probably Cannes was not the right place for it. Probably somewhere like Sundance would have been much better for it, but that’s all sort of Russian Roulette in some ways. You just never know. I’m just glad that screeners have been sent out and that people have been able to see it. I think it’s very much an actor’s piece. I think Matthew is amazing in it. I think Zac is amazing. I think John Cusack is so good in it. I mean, Lee wanted it to look like it was shot in 1968.  I’m just glad people are seeing it.

Q: You and Matthew and John have all made pictures somewhat of this scope, but Zac has never made a movie like this.  

No, it was luck [Lee cast him] and he was so good and he was up for anything.  I think he’s got so much ahead of him.  He obviously has a beautiful face, but I loved the quality he brought to the character and in the scene where he comes to the door he’s suddenly a man. [His character is] like, ‘Hey, you can be with me’ and ‘I want you to be with me’ and I’m like, ‘No, no.’ I loved what he did with the arc with it. I think he’s a really strong actor and I just hope he gets the opportunity to shine.

From awardsdaily:
JT: You spend a lot time on-screen with Zac Efron. He’s been doing more and more independent films and more dramatic roles, but we’ve never seen him do anything like this. As a scene partner, what did he bring that was unique?

Kidman: He just has a lot of heart, Zac. As tough as he tries to be, he’s not tough. Which is a good thing. I mean that as a compliment. There’s no rough exterior to Zac. I think you really feel that on-screen. He just has to look, and you feel for him. I think he has a really strong power in what he doesn’t say… I think he’s going to have a really strong career. Because he’s also very open. That’s a beautiful thing in a man, is that openness. I think you feel that in the character. He’s more than willing to love Charlotte and obsess on Charlotte. A lot of young guys, they wouldn’t be as free or as open with it.

JT: You and Zac Efron had an on-screen relationship that’s incredibly intense, and passionate, emotionally and physically. Whether it was a physical or a more emotional scene, how did you two build that trust and that intimacy and approach those scenes?

Kidman: We kind of just had it. I think that was the whole film. It’s not we had to build trust. Every actor that ever came on the set, there was kind of just an immediate trust. I think because we were down in New Orleans. Because we’re all doing this because we want to be there. Because we want to be with Lee. Because we want to play these characters. We were just really committed from the moment we stepped on. Matthew, John, Zac, David, everyone in it. That was what was fun about it. And really intense at times.

JT: You said the scene with you visiting John Cusack’s character in prison was spontaneous and just evolved on the day. Was that true of a lot of your scenes with Zac Efron?

Kidman: Everything in the film was spontaneous. It was caught on the day. Obviously there was a script. But at the same time, a lot of the stuff just evolved and happened. That’s what makes it like a bit of a tightrope walk. And probably what the film erratic at times and unpredictable, which is what Lee wanted. He wanted it to look like we shot it in 1968. And he wanted to be kind of flawed.

Finally, At Any Price is slated for release on April 26, 2013 per BOM.

I really love those quotes from Nicole <3

I'm so excited about AWOD. At first, I only supported this movie because of Zac, but now that they assembled such a great young cast I can't wait to see it. Love Imogen and Michael. I've only seen Miles in 21 And Over trailer and he is so adorable in it. Even if the script is not that great, I think a charismatic lead performance and likeable supporting cast can totally save the entire film, just like 17 Again.

BTW, is Deborah Ann Woll still doing this movie?
Beejeezbee on December 16th, 2012 07:53 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately Deborah had to drop out. I'm curious who they replace her with, too.

I love the facial hair, though as I've always suspected it doesn't help with the chubbiness of his face. But damn he looks good. And those Nicole quotes are great

Ha ha, Box Office Mojo has At Any Price classified as Genre: Adventure.

That's the weakness in this movie - no one can describe it. It's definitely not sci-fi and it doesn't have any vampires, but what is it? Family drama? Agro-thriller? Rom dram?

It will be fascinating to see how Sony Classics markets this one. That is, if they bother to do any marketing. I'm really getting depressed about the distribution of indie films (at least, the ones with Zac Efron in them). Last time I looked, The Paperboy was playing in three theaters, just a month after "limited" release. They weren't kidding about that "limited."

Favorite picture from the game

Lovely pictures! I hate it when he starves me of his presence, and I am filled with romantic longing for his next appearance, those blue florescent eyes and that all-embracing smile.

I checked Netflix and found Paperboy but it's not available for rental. What are the chances that will be made available? This is the second movie (the first is "Where the day takes us") that I can't rent. )-;

Sweet to hear Nicole's thoughts and observations on Zac. They all gave it up for Lee in this film. Great photos, too.

'but I loved the quality he brought to the character and in the scene where he comes to the door he’s suddenly a man. [His character is] like, ‘Hey, you can be with me’ and ‘I want you to be with me’ and I’m like, ‘No, no.’ I loved what he did with the arc with it. I think he’s a really strong actor and I just hope he gets the opportunity to shine.'

*this is what I'm talkin bout. Yes, he was 'suddenly' Jack, the man. Loved that scene, too. A little part of her made him her man..

Re: :)
He can keep his body trim by exercising; but it's really hard to give your face a work-out.

Re: :)
I would think that vigorous use of the lips and tongue may provide a bit of a workout. I'd be willing to offer myself to him to see if it would help.

Re: O__o New project ?
omg... how epic that would be! any news??
kleth on December 14th, 2012 04:28 pm (UTC)
Re: O__o New project ?
He's only mentioned once, and they don't say which role he would play. I'm guessing that this is a half-ass story concocted from various scraps and speculations. The movie is probably real, but the cast and stuff are not, as with most early news about new productions (remember The Paperboy; almost no one in the first-announced cast actually appeared in the movie). Still, hope springs eternal...

If he's supposed to start shooting "next month," that's cutting it pretty close, since AWOD is supposed to shoot until January 20. Of course, if it's really based on Arabian Nights, then it should be a segmented set of stories, like New Year's Eve, so Z might not personally be in front of the cameras for more than a couple of weeks, later during the shoot.
Sapphirasapphia on December 14th, 2012 06:10 pm (UTC)
Re: O__o New project ?
I agree with you on all points. All this seems doubtful. But if this is real, Zac is not exactly in the lead roles ... and somewhere among the rest.
kleth on December 15th, 2012 04:26 pm (UTC)
Re: O__o New project ?
"not exactly in the lead roles"

The Arabian Nights is an anthology of 1,001 stories. Zac would appear as the main character in one of the stories chosen for the movie - as in New Year's Eve, in which no one was the movie's main protagonist but each appeared as part of a separate story.

I can't remember. Is there a book for AWOD? Didn't see it on Amazon.
Bee: Zac – CStC - leaving cottage - candlejeezbee on December 16th, 2012 07:50 pm (UTC)
No, it's not based on any book.

Ha ha, not only bare feet, but dirty feet. Hey Zef, you're running out of body parts to display to your fans.

The UK trailer might not be perfect but it surely is better than the US one. And those BTS pics are nice.

It's cool seeing the AWOD cast hanging out, although I didn't expect a football game. It's all good though.
