Talulah Riley's Summer House an iTunes smash; Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend's short film to be released on iTunes Sept 21st

Image
According to NY dBusiness News, the iTunes release (last July 13) of The Summer House, starring P&P's Talulah Riley and Twilight star Robert Pattinson, has debuted at number one in 4 territories.

“Audiences have spoken. Short movies rock!” said Carter Pilcher, CEO of Shorts International. “As The Summer House’s record-breaking dominance atop the movie chart demonstrates, short movies are the entertainment sweet spot for fans who are shifting to shorter, sharper bursts of entertainment.” Also, speaking of short films and iTunes, Talulah's [former] Pride & Prejudice co-stars, real-life couple Keira Knightley&Rupert Friend's own short film, The Continuing and Lamentable Saga of The Suicide Brothers, which Rupert co-wrote (and co-produced) with his other co-…

Casting News: Rosamund Pike to star in Johnny English 2

Image
WhileRosamund Pike is still circling and yet to be confirmed to play the role as Moira MacTaggert for the reboot of X-Men: First Class movie with James McAvoy, one thing that's just been reported and is at least for certain and not a rumor is Rosamund starring in a sequel to Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr. Bean)'s comedy spy James Bondspoof film, Johnny English Reborn. I think RP will be great on this one...and it's comedy, so she gets to be funny here like she did with An Education. Also, Rosamund's other and now completed film, Varney's Version will premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Here's the article from Press Association (and UK's The Daily Mail here ... you can also read another possible casting news for Judi Dench there as well):
Rosamund Pike for Johnny English 2

Former Bond girl Rosamund Pike is to star as a sexy secret agent once again in Johnny English 2.

It not only debuts strong at #1, it also, easily breaks through with $60.4 million (estimated...final result will be released Monday afternoon!) gross for a non-sequel/non-remake/original released film this summer!!!Yay, congrats to Talulah Riley and her Inception co-stars and crew!!!

Not too mention, I love Leonardo DiCaprio and it's awesome that Talulah is on this film too whether her role is small or cameo and the rest of the ensemble cast including Marion Cotillard and Cillian Murphy are pretty good actors too. Now, she has a box-office hit after P&P movie. Speaking of Talulah and Leo DiCaprio, check out this related article of Talulah Riley: I have crush on Leo.
