– Fuse’s ‘The Sauce’
It seems like things are slowing down a little bit now so I figured I’d catch up with some picture additions. Huge thanks to Angie for all of the Charmed DVD captures and Maria and Mel for the Venice photoshoot! Please log in to view some of these images.
Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof will indeed compete at the Cannes Film Festival (May 16-27, 2007) in the lenght of 110 minutes. Here’s to hoping that Rose McGowan will be in attendance!
Jennifer Lopez has been named the Style Icon of The Year by American magazine Us Weekly. The actress/singer will pick up her prize at a ceremony in Hollywood next week (April 26, 2007).
Also named among Hollywood’s style kings and queens were Lindsay Lohan, Rose McGowan and pop couple Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz.
Brazilian thesp Rodrigo Santoro, who played Persian ruler Xerses in 300, has been cast opposite Rose McGowan in Hit and Run’s Black Oasis. Film, to be written and directed by Stephan Elliot (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert), chronicles the life of troubled starlet Susan Cabot, a favorite of the B-movie circuit who was bludgeoned to death by her son. Hit and Run partners Hilary Shor and Tony Smith are producing.
Santoro will play Cabot’s husband.
Actor’s previous credits include Carandiru, Bicho de Sete Cabecas (aka Brainstorm), Love Actually and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.
We’ve also added a style related poll, where you may vote for your favorite Rose looks.
The Fan Archives have been updated with 30 new LiveJournal icons made by yours truly. These were made mostly using Rose’s new magazine pictorials. I hope you enjoy!
We received some reports over the weekend and yesterday from some readers saying their local theaters were running the GRINDHOUSE films separately or running them together with an intermission instead of the fake trailers. Curious, we did our best Carl Monday impression and did some investigative reporting. Was this the case of some rogue theater owners splitting GRINDHOUSE on their own? Had The Weinstein Co. officially re-released GRINDHOUSE as two separate films – “Planet Terror” and “Death Proof.” After some digging and talking and e-mailing and harassing, we were able to find out the truth. It seems in the wake of the opening weekend disaster, the Weinsteins, as they widely admitted to, considered splitting the films. Being the Weinsteins, they did what they do best: they tested. Last weekend they tested various concepts of improving GRINDHOUSE business in select theaters including two of the various methods above. None of the methods seemed to have any positive effect on box-office receipts and word I got from inside the Weinstein Co. last night was that the plan to split GRINDHOUSE in two and re-release was very likely kiboshed. So that could be it for the GRINDHOUSE experiment folks. Just left to die a slow death and develop a cult following on home video, not unlike….well grindhouse movies.
We have now added the smokin’ scans from Rolling Stone which featured Miss Rose and Rosario Dawson on it’s April 20th cover. Huge thanks to Jennifer of Sassy – Rosario Dawson for allowing us to use her HQ scans. You can also download a behind the scenes video if you missed the update, in the video vault.
I received my copy of the April issue of Venice magazine today and I must say, the pictures of Rose McGowan are absolutely stunning and the interview is definitely one of the better ones. I’ve added the beautiful scans to our gallery. Mycah and I have also been scanning other mags recently, such as the May issue of Vanity Fair… Thanks to everyone who sent in scans for this one, it is much appreciated.
As usual, please respect our work by not re-posting our scans without proper credit. Thank you!
