I’ve added 122 new HQ pictures of Emma attending the “MTV Movie Awards” last month. Check it:
THR reported that DreamWorks and Disney are moving up the release of The Help by two days, from Aug. 12 to Aug. 10. The switch means the film, based on Kathryn Stockett’s runaway best seller, will open on a Wednesday. By going out midweek, DreamWorks hopes to capitalize on strong word-of-mouth.
DreamWorks has begun screening the film in earnest to various groups, and reports great reaction.
Disney will distribute the film through its Touchstone label. The Help was fully produced and financed by DreamWorks and Participant Media.
Emma Stone’s meteoric rise in Hollywood is one of the most anticipated of the year. With three movies in the coming month and a starring role in next summer’s The Amazing Spider-man, the 22-year-old—who made her mark in Superbad, Zombieland, and Easy-A—was ready for her V.F. close-up. Go behind the scenes with Patrick Demarchelier in St. Barth’s as he photographs Stone for the August 2011 cover.
Emma Stone, it turns out, doesn’t quite have a knack for creating delicious treats for entitled Hollywood hounds.
Luckily, there was another career path available to her when she packed up, quit high school and moved out west.
Covering this month’s Vanity Fair, Stone reveals her early career struggles, which she can now make light of, given her enormous — and growing — success.
“I could hear that, in the other room, a girl had just gone in and they were saying, ‘You are our pick … On a scale of 1 to 10 you’re an 11,’” Stone tells the magazine of her audition for the now-cancelled NBC “Heroes.” The girl in the room, of course, was Hayden Panettiere.
“I went home and just had this meltdown,” Stone says, labeling the moment her “rock bottom.”
For many, high school graduation is a difficult moment; so used to the comfort of their hometowns, with family and friends all around, they’re unable, or at least not ready, to head into the real world. Stone’s graduation time, however, was different; hers came on the big screen, in her big breakout role. Having already left behind all the trappings of home, she had no problem with the transition.
“I did Superbad in what would’ve been my senior year,” she tells Vanity Fair. “I was playing a senior, and had I graduated I would’ve missed that opportunity, and had I missed that opportunity I wouldn’t be here right now.”
Deadline is reporting that Emma turned down the offer to make “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”. The film is based on the tongue-in-cheek book by Seth Grahame-Smith, a re-telling of Jane Austen‘s “Pride and Prejudice” which pits Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy against the brain-devouring monsters.
Yahoo released new character promos for “Crazy, Stupid Love” and Emma is featured on this one with Ryan Gosling. The movie will release next July 29th, 2011.
A few different actresses have been possible leads for the film version of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Pride and Predjudice and Zombies. Natalie Portman was an early candidate, and Mia Wasikowska and Anne Hathaway have also been linked to the project. But a series of directors have come and gone through a revolving door: David O. Russell, Mike White, and finally the choice that stuck, Craig Gillespie.
So, with a director in place and final script work being done by Marti Noxon (who wrote Craig Gillespie’s last film, the Fright Night remake) it’s time to really lock down a young woman to play Jane Austen’s heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who has to deal with zombies in addition to love and rigid social structures. Emma Stone has been offered the part, says THR, but we don’t have further info. If she accepts the rest of the cast will be built around her.
Yahoo has released the first poster for “Crazy, Stupid Love“, that will be released in September 02nd, and I added it to our gallery.
