Check out the new international trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl!
When rumours begin to circulate that King Henry VIII (Bana) is no longer intimate with his wife who has been unable to give him a male heir, Sir Thomas Boleyn concocts a plan to bring his family back to prominence: his daughter Anne (Portman) shall seduce the King and provide him with a son. However, the scheme goes off course when the King takes to the other Boleyn girl, Anne’s younger sister and best friend Mary (Johansson). Although married already, Mary gives in to family pressure and reluctantly provides the King with a boy, but along the way, she finds herself falling in love with the surprisingly tender monarch. Of course, this love affair is no obstacle for Anne whose hunger for the throne now overpowers her sisterly love, and she enacts a plan that eventually tears her family and her country apart while leading to her legendary demise.
Scarlett Johansson comments on Penelope Cruz in the Spanish actress’ cover story for Vogue magazine:
Johansson revealed that Allen wrote a part for the Spanish beauty after he saw her in her Oscar-nominated role in Volver.
However, he was so infatuated by her that he was reduced to a stuttering mess in her presence.
“Of course Woody was so unbelievably enamoured of her. He’d be like ‘Uh-uh-uh P-Penelope, P-Penelope. You’d think, ‘You are such a stuttering fool, man. Just get your stuff together.’ But what can you do – he’s an appreciator of fine things, and Penelope is quite fine,” she added.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona synopsis by Woody Allen (courtesy of Wild Bunch):
Vicky and Cristina, two young American girls, go to spend the summer in Barcelona. Vicky (Rebecca Hall) is straight-laced and about to be married. Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) is a free-spirit and very sexually adventurous.
They meet a flamboyant, Spanish artist (Javier Bardem) and his beautiful but insane ex-wife (Penelope Cruz). They all become involved in romantic adventures that are either hilarious or harrowing, depending on your point of view. Barcelona is seen as a very beautiful, romantic city like New York was in the movie, MANHATTAN.

Today is Miss Scarlett’s 23rd Birthday. On behalf of all of the fans, I would like to send out congratulations to our favorite star. We hope you will have a magical day spent among the ones you love. May all your wishes come true! :heart:
I’ve added three clips and replaced the previous The Perfect Score captures with larger versions. While the film is not one of my Scarlett faves, I still like the character of Francesca Curtis and her look. It is always refreshing to see Scarlett as a stunning red head.
I also wish to thank Shui and Marc for their donations! I really appreciate it! In the near future all donors will gain access to a special section of the site, specifically created to say “thank you” to all the contributors. All donors will be contacted through email once everything has been set up.
I have decided to look for some donations for Scarlett-Fan.com. There is something extra special that I would love to obtain for the site but I cannot afford it by myself. If you’re a frequent visitor and enjoy the site and want to see it grow, please consider making a donation. All donations will be used to improve the site and no donation will go unrecognized.
If there will be enough donations, I will also try and get a copy of Visionaire for scanning (the new magazine with Scarlett’s ‘nude’ feature). But I am not holding my breath as it is so expensive and I believe nearly sold out. As you may remember, the limited edition (2,500 copies) issue costs a hefty $375 (plus shipping).

Deborah Del Prete, CEO and Partner of Odd Lot Entertainment, is currently Producing Will Eisner’s The Spirit. During our recent visit to the set, amidst a rush of activity including a closed rehearsal and shooting various scenes between the Spirit and the Octopus, Del Prete was able to take some time to speak to us about The Spirit and how she helped bring the project to life.
As Producer Del Prete has been involved with The Spirit from its initial development stages nearly seven years ago to the current production and will continue on through post-production.
In terms of the story Del Prete says that, “Sand Saref stories are a major component.” How developed is the story? “It’s the Frank Miller version, it’s very developed…it’s not an origin story, but there will be origin revealed in it.”
I’ve added 12 HQs of Scarlett filming He’s Just Not That Into You in Baltimore last weekend with Kevin Connolly. The film is expected to wrap this week. Read on for an article from Baltimore Sun:
Celebrity sightings continued this weekend as the cast of He’s Just Not That Into You worked and dined around town.
Filming, which started Friday in Little Italy, will tentatively continue through tomorrow. Based on a self-help humor book, the movie brought stars Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly and Kevin Connolly to Baltimore for the past few days.
In Mount Vernon, restaurants Thairish and the Helmand were temporarily redecorated Saturday with new lights, a new door and a new name: Red Seven.
A-list actresses Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly will be in town this weekend, shooting the final scenes for He’s Just Not That Into You to lend some geographic authenticity to the romantic comedy set in Baltimore.
Set to be released next summer, the movie is based on the popular self-help book by comedian Greg Behrendt and Sex and the City writer Liz Tuccillo. While the film’s plot has been kept under wraps, the book lists all the excuses a woman concocts for why a man she longs for doesn’t seem interested.
Ginnifer Goodwin of Big Love and Kevin Connolly of Entourage will also be filming scenes, which should start today and continue through Monday. But most of the ensemble cast, including Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore, won’t be on location because He’s Just Not That Into You was shot primarily in Los Angeles.
