Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a sexy, funny divertissement that passes as enjoyably as an idle summer’s afternoon in the titular Spanish city. With Javier Barden starring as a bohemian artist involved variously with Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Rebecca Hall, pic offers potent romantic fantasy elements for men and women and a cast that should produce the best commercial returns for a Woody Allen film since Match Point. And, in the bargain, if Barcelona wants even more visitors than it already attracts, this film will supply them.

Just as London did when Allen went there for Match Point, the Catalan capital serves as an evident stimulus for the director. Even if the film provides a strictly tourist’s view of the city (a perspective justified by the scenario, in fact), and one just as upscale and heedless of money as ever for Allen, VCB is by several degrees more hot-blooded than his usual norm, thanks especially due to the palpable chemistry of Bardem and Cruz in the second half.

See Scarlett perform songs from her album live over at AOL! Caps will be up this weekend. Be sure to view the videos, they’re really good.

By the way, according to reports Scarlett will not be present at Cannes for the presentation of Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Only Penelope Cruz and director Woody Allen will promote it there. I do not know the reason for this but we should have more details tomorrow after the press conference.

Another little Mary related tidbit from Variety:

Capitol hopes that Mary Queen of Scots, starring Scarlett Johansson, finally will go into production this summer after a number of delays, but helmer Phillip Noyce has withdrawn from the project.

From Variety (click to read full article):

Rumors have emerged that Capitol’s financial uncertainty may also delay or derail a pair of projects in pre-production: Mary, Queen of Scots, starring Scarlett Johansson, and Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, starring Jennifer Lopez, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lisa Kudrow.

Here’s to hoping the film will go into production soon and without any hassle.

According to the Superheroes-R-Us blog, Lionsgate has moved the release date of Frank Miller’s The Spirit up to December 25, 2008 – from the original January 16, 2009 date. If this is indeed true, we will have two Scarlett films to enjoy late this year; The Spirit and He’s Just Not That Into You (to be released October 24). And then, of course, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, set to premiere at Cannes this month.

I have been going through the donations bin this weekend, which includes some really cool stuff. Romina and Joanna sent in scans from new Dutch and Polish magazines (including some new pics!) and Roberto contributed screencaps of deleted scenes of The Nanny Diaries, which can be found on the Italian DVD. I’ve scanned Scarlett’s page from the FHM ’100 Sexiest’ special and added plenty of additional pictures to the New York, I Love You on set albums. Click here to view all new additions. Enjoy the new goodies and, again, thanks so much to everyone who contributed!
