The Miss Sofia Coppola Seminary For Eternal Admirers
Huffington Post - 8 months
THE AIR THAT I BREATHE “I didn’t know what I wanted to do next, but I knew I wanted to do something that was really beautiful.”  Sofia Coppola’s movies reveal her contradictions. She is a director whose Hollywood inauguration was a birthright, thanks to an illustrious family tree and a luckless child-acting stint she never wanted. Fleeting youthfulness lies at the center of her stories: the troubled teens in “The Virgin Suicides” and “The Bling Ring,” the aging actors adrift in “Lost in Translation” and “Somewhere,” the callow duchess thrust into notoriety in “Marie Antoinette,” and now the repressed boarding-school denizens in “The Beguiled.” Her characters seek better horizons, but Coppola is nothing if not resolute, sophisticated, singular. In the words of “Bling Ring” star Israel Broussard, Coppola has a “motherly essence and gracefulness.” According to “Virgin Suicides” matriarch Kathleen Turner, who also co-starred with Coppola in the 1986 comedy “Peggy Sue Got Marrie...

Behold, Nicole Kidman Transfixed By A Pie
Huffington Post - 8 months
Celebrity photographs are a key component of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, so here is one of Nicole Kidman hypnotized by the luckiest pie in the world.  Kidman’s finger hovered over that dessert at the after-party for Monday’s Los Angeles premiere of “The Beguiled,” where she is seen surrounded by co-star Elle Fanning, chef Casey Thompson, director Sofia Coppola and co-star Kirsten Dunst. The women in Coppola’s new movie do serve pie to the wounded Civil War soldier (Colin Farrell) they take in at their isolated Louisiana boarding school. Oscar winners, they’re just like us. The actress touched this fresh confection with abandon, and for that we salute her. It is, after all, the Year of Kidman.  You might say the “Beguiled” premiere was to pie for.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Books To Read Before The Summer Movie Comes Out
Huffington Post - 9 months
Tulip Fever By Deborah Moggach 288 pages; Dial Press Sex, art, flowers: It’s the 1630s in Amsterdam in Tulip Fever, and everybody is obsessed with at least one of the three. In the film version of Deborah Moggach’s 1999 novel, opening August 25, the center of attention is Sophia (Alicia Vikander), who’s a devoted wife to her aged merchant husband—until the introduction of the brooding artist hired to paint their portrait. Moggach’s novel delivers plenty of hot-and-heavy lust and betrayal, but she’s also done her homework on a remarkable moment in Dutch history, masterfully weaving in observations about religion and economics, delivered in prose as elegant as a Vermeer: “She is color, waiting to be mixed; a painting, ready to be brushed into life. She is a moment, waiting to be fixed forever under a shiny varnish.” The Beguiled By Thomas Cullinan 384 pages; Penguin Books Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 novel about the Civil War first hit theaters in 1971, with Clint Eastwood star...

Kirsten Dunst On 'Spider-Man' Reboots: 'We Made The Best Ones, So Who Cares?'
Huffington Post - 9 months
Kirsten Dunst has no time for revamped “Spider-Man” films. The actress starred in a “Spider-Man” trilogy opposite Tobey Maguire in the early aughts and recently spoke out about her distaste for the reboots of the franchise. And, truly, who can blame her? She was a fantastic Mary Jane Watson.  In the July issue of UK’s Marie Claire, the star of the upcoming remake “The Beguiled” said the “Spider-Man” franchise she starred in was the “best.” When asked for her opinion on the Spider-Man reboot, she was also pretty unequivocal. ‘We made the best ones, so who cares? I’m like, “You make it all you want.” They’re just milking that cow for money. It’s so obvious. You know what I mean?’ Dunst likely isn’t wrong about studios “milking that cow.” Maguire and Dunst’s “Spider-Man” brought in a whopping $821.7 million worldwide and 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, earned $757.9 million. That’s not exactly ch...

Kirsten Dunst Trips Out In The Trippy 'Woodshock' Trailer
Huffington Post - 10 months
It’s hard to decide when Kirsten Dunst officially become one of our most interesting actresses. Was it when lightning spewed from her fingertips in “Melancholia”? When she snorted coke and ripped Rebel Wilson’s wedding dress in “Bachelorette”? Maybe it was her naïve Midwestern enlightenment on “Fargo”?  If you’re not already convinced, the new “Woodshock” trailer should do the trick. Dunst plays a grieving woman fleeing her mangled emotions and paranoia with the help of a trippy cannabinoid drug. “Woodshock” marks the directorial debut of sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, friends of Dunst who founded the fashion label Rodarte.  This is one of two fascinating projects Dunst has coming this year. The first is next month’s “The Beguiled,” her latest collaboration with “Virgin Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette” director Sofia Coppola. In addition to “Woodshock” and “The Beguiled,” Dunst is working on the AMC dark-comedy series “On Becoming a God in Central Florida,” dir...

We Want More Of 73-Year-Old Lauren Hutton In This Calvin Klein Ad
Huffington Post - 10 months
Mega babe Lauren Hutton just landed a gig as Calvin Klein underwear model.  The 73-year-old stars alongside Rashida Jones and Kirsten Dunst in the sexy ad, titled “Calvin Klein or nothing at all.” We’re thrilled to see a wide range of ages represented in a lingerie campaign, but we have one complaint for director Sofia Coppola: We wish Hutton had a bit more screen time.  Hutton makes her appearance only at the end of the minute-long director’s cut video above, in which she’s seen relaxing on a bed and flashing that iconic gap-toothed smile.  She does get some one-on-one time on camera in a second solo clip, in which she describes the “corniest pick up line” she’s ever heard in her life. “And it was fabulous,” she said. First the men of “Moonlight” and now this? Swoon, swoon, swoon, Calvin Klein.  type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=588b9700e4b08a14f7e5b547,58b44a4ce4b0780bac2ba8c3,5886357de4b...

The Trailer For Sofia Coppola's 'The Beguiled' Previews A Southern Gothic Horror
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Here’s a rare remake worth your excitement: The first trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” has arrived.  Coppola gives her own spin on the 1971 drama starring Clint Eastwood, itself an adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s 1966 Southern Gothic novel. Colin Farrell plays a Confederate soldier riding out an injury at an all-girls boarding school in rural Virginia. As he bonds with the sheltered women on the property ― played by the likes of Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, “Pete’s Dragon” star Oona Laurence and “The Nice Guys” breakout Angourie Rice ― things get a little twisted.  “The Beguiled” marks Coppola’s first theatrical release since 2013’s “The Bling Ring.” It opens June 23. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
