The Soloist theatrical release pushed back to 2009?

Bad news for everyone (including myself) who's been waiting to see The Soloist. Looks like we'll have to wait (4 months)...until March 2009 to see P&P/Atonement director Joe Wright's next feature film...according to recent online reports and this part of the recent article posted on's The Soloist messageboard:

There's fallout today from Paramount's newly announced decision to release 20 movies a year. Already bigwigs are shuffling the 2008-2009 release schedule -- and that has Oscar ramifications for one pic. I can tell you that DreamWorks is very upset because Paramount is taking its Robert Downey Jr-Jamie Foxx starrer The Soloist out of Academy Awards contention by moving it from a limited release on November 21st until March 13, 2009. This is extreme since ads on all sorts of media platforms have already started appearing for the Oscar-touted movie based on Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez' accounts of a homeless violin player. Solois…

Film Friday #1 Review: Pride & Prejudice (2005)

My P&P Review (from last week's Film Friday #1):

I love everything about this film from the first scene to the last one. The entire film was just simply amazing to watch. I must say, I've seen this film several times than I care to count (in fact, I have lost count already on how many times, lol).

On The Set: Keira Knightley spotted filming 'Last Night' in NYC

Just Jared reports that...

Keira Knightley walks to the New York City set of her latest movie, Last Night, early Monday morning.

The drama romance follows a married couple, apart for a night while the husband (rumored to be Sam Worthington) takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he’s attracted. While he’s resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love. Last Night opens in theaters in 2009.

The 23-year-old British actress was later seen catching up her New York Times at a local cafe and socializing with costar Guillaume Canet.
Check out several photos of Keira on the set of Last Night @ Sweet Keira's Image Gallery or Just Jared's Gallery.

Film Review: The Duchess

I finally saw this movie recently. I've been waiting to see it since its U.S. theatrical release (Sept. 19th), but it was on limited release and it didn't expand till early October. I almost thought I won't see this movie on the big-screen as it was taking so long for my local theater to add this movie in their "now playing" screens. It took a long time for Atonement to be added in more I wasn't expecting much for The Duchess. To my surprise, this one is actually showing now and much earlier than Atonement was last year. So, I was so glad and got excited when I saw on the movie listing that it is now showing. I went to see it with my mother and we both loved and enjoyed this film.

Here's my review of this movie...with caution though of slight spoilers mention here and there...

BBC Press Page Interview: Matthew Macfadyen plays Arthur Clennam in Little Dorrit

BBC Press Office has a press releasepacks for Matthew Macfadyen's Little Dorrit, a major BBC One Dickens adaptation.

Here's a an interview they did for MM:
Matthew Macfadyen plays Arthur Clennam, the mysterious figure whose return from overseas to fulfil his dying father's last wish completely transforms the lives of the Dorrits.

The charismatic leading actor, who has gained a huge following on the small screen as Tom in Spooks and on the big screen as Mr Darcy in Pride And Prejudice, says he had no hesitation in accepting the role of Arthur.

"This story really blew my hair back," he grins.

"Then when the rest of the casting came through, I couldn't believe my luck. I've been in some sexy casts in my time, but nothing quite like this!"

Matthew, who has also starred in The Way We Live Now, The Project and Warriors, goes on to outline the role.

"It's quite a challenge playing Arthur. At first, I was worried that he's merely the glue that sti…
