Pictured: Zoe Saldana, Ahna O’Reilly, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, Rooney Mara
Yes, there were other things to talk about from Cannes besides Eva Longoria’s upskirt wardrobe malfunction which continues to be the buzz of the internet. Jimmy P. might have gotten a boost in coverage but there are more films for you folks to pay attention to. Here are a few of the latest photocalls and premieres that don’t include Eva Longoria or Doutzen Kroes.
Both Zoe Saldana and Marion Cotillard are in town for Blood Ties whiel Ahna O’Reilly is there for As I Lay Dying. Early in the weekend Carey Mulligan attended the photocall for Inside Llewyn Davis before hitting the premiere while Rooney Mara took to the premiere of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Keep up to date with all our coverage from the Cannes Film Festival, yes, there’s more to it than just Eva Longoria’s upskirt wardrobe malfunction!!
“Its debut didn’t quite make the jump to warp speed that Paramount Pictures executives expected.”[LA Times]
Star Trek Into Darkness won the box-office race this weekend with its big $70.6 million bow, but that wasn’t quite what the execs over at producing studio paramount were hoping for.
They wanted something closer to the $90 million mark. The movie was produced for $190 million and, according to reports, “[t]he film’s weekend domestic numbers represent a modest 6% increase from Abrams’ 2009 reboot, though that uptick includes the addition of 3-D and Imax ticket premiums.”
Maybe they’re just carping because they couldn’t best the historic open for Iron Man 3. Or maybe they’re just scurred that with this many superhero/action/adventure/sci fi movies lined up for release this summer, they just might be left in the proverbial spaceship dust.
“Iron Man 3 crossed the $300 million mark at the domestic box office on Wednesday.”[THR]
What bigger and better than two Iron Men? A third Iron Man with a billion buckaroos.
The Marvel/Disney trilogy caper has now crossed the $1 billion mark a scant two weeks after its release, making it the 16th highest grossing film of all time. If you’re wondering how it’s doing domestically, here’s the latest tally: Iron Man 3‘s domestic haul stands at $301.9 million while its international earnings are at $698.9 million.
Does this mean there will be a fourth Iron Man? Officially, all parties involved maintain there will not be another sequel. But something tells us they’ll still manage to keep milking this cash cow.
Jessica Biel walked the red carpet amongst the celebrities who attended the premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis at The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. Jessica came in support of husband Justin Timberlake who stars as Jim Berkey in the film. The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, and Garrett Headlund, in addition to Timberlake. Loosely based on Dave Van Ronk’s” The Mayor of MacDougal Street”, the film has been chosen to compete for the Palme d’Or. Look for it in US theaters this December.
Eva Longoria’s upskirt wardrobe malfunction might be the buzz of the internet over the weekend but she wasn’t the only to suffer an embarassing moment on the red carpet at the Jimmy P. premiere. This unnamed guest, conviently slipped a nipple at the same event as Eva but is getting probably 10,000x less press than Eva, for obvious reasons we don’t need to state. However, since we’ve for love for all wardrobe malfunctions here we gotta give some attention to our unnamed guest, winner of the second best wardrobe malfunction from the Jimmy P. premiere at the 66th Cannes Film Festival.
Eva Longoria walked the red carpet at the 66th Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Jimmy P. Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian. Well, everyone on the Internet got a nice surprise when some quick-reacting photographer got a rather nice shot of Eva’s upskirt as she made her through to the entrance. We’ll let you folks be the judge of what you actually see but atleast this keeps Eva relevant to us without having her holding a bag of Lays Potato Chips. As for the film, Jimmy P. will compete for the Palme d’Or at Cannes and stars Benicio del Toro, Mathieu Amalric, and Elya Baskin. But the purpose of this post is to get you to the Gallery to check out Eva’s upskirt! OW!!
In addition to The Bling Ring premiere, at the same time celebrities walked the red carpet at the 66th Cannes Film Festival for the Jeune et Jolie. Jeune et Jolie translated from French is Young and Beautiful. Written and Directed by François Ozon and starring Marine Vacth, the film has been selected to compete for the Palme d’Or. The film opens in France on August 21st.
Young and Beautiful is a thoroughly non-moralistic, rather clinical, film about the opaque Isabelle, a 17-year-old from a well-heeled family who becomes a part time hooker for pleasure instead of money. [Source]
