First look at Netflix’s “The Dig”


Written by Elise on October 29 2020

Netflix has released the first look at the upcoming film “The Dig,” based on the 2007 novel of the same name by John Preston, and starring Carey Mulligan, Lily James, and Ralph Fiennes. It tells the story of the most famous archaeological dig in modern British history – the discovery of the Anglo-Saxon burial ship at Sutton Hoo, known as “Britain’s Tutankhamun”.

Carey stars as Edith Pretty, an English landowner on whose land the Sutton Hoo ship burial was discovered after she had paid Basil Brown (Ralph Fiennes), a local archaeologist, to find out if anything lay beneath the mounds on her property.

According to Digital Spy, Lily James admitted that the dark nature of the film and the paranoia her character experiences had a big impact on her while filming. “Towards the end of making it, I started getting this thing where my heart was beating so loudly that you could hear it,” she said. “It’s really scary. All of a sudden, you become very, very aware of your heartbeat and you can feel it going really fast. And when you look at the psychological aspect of the book, and the darkness and the twistedness in it, it suddenly made sense.”

High-quality production stills have been added to our gallery.

Focus Feature Sets “Promising Young Woman” Christmas Release Date


Written by Elise on October 09 2020

Variety – There’s at least one thing promising about the holidays: “Promising Young Woman,” a revenge thriller starring Carey Mulligan, is hitting theaters on Christmas Day.

While most movies are fleeing the release calendar this year, “Promising Young Woman” is one of the few films to take a chance on an unpredictable 2020. As it stands, it will compete against “Wonder Woman 1984” on the big screen on Dec. 25.

Focus Features is owned by Universal, the studio that recently signed a pact with theater chain AMC to allow films to premiere on premium video-on-demand within three weeks of their theatrical debuts. Since the deal extends to Focus, the specialty label has something of a safety net if audiences don’t turn out en masse to see “Promising Young Woman.” They can put it on digital rental services after 17 days, without having to worry about additional marketing costs.

[…] Emerald Fennell, a showrunner on “Killing Eve,” wrote and directed “Promising Young Woman” in her feature directorial debut. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival to strong reviews, with critics praising Mulligan’s performance. Vanity Fair’s critic Richard Lawson called Mulligan “consistently riveting throughout.” “Even when the movie occasionally loses its way,” he wrote, “Mulligan carries it along, selling every twist and reveal in mesmerizing fashion.” […]

Carey Mulligan for InStyle Magazine (June 2020)


Written by Elise on May 06 2020

InStyle – […] Commitment is ingrained in Mulligan, who, at 35, has been married to musician Marcus Mumford (of the folkrock band Mumford & Sons) for eight years and has two children, Evelyn, 4, and Wilfred, 2. When they’re not touring or filming, the family divide their time between their home in London and farm in Devon. It’s by FaceTime that I catch up with Mulligan, who is in Devon, in her second week of self-isolation from COVID-19. (She flashes her phone around to point out some cows languidly walking past her house.) Now, Mulligan and I once had a grand plan to shoot her cover story in Paris, have dinner afterward, the whole tra-la-la. Due to looming travel restrictions, I had to leave early for New York, but Mulligan kept her commitment, gamely shooting this story in cold, rainy weather with a skeleton crew. A week later, even that would be impossible.

Carey, I have to thank you for making it to Paris for this shoot. It was literally the last story we were able to complete before we all went into lockdown.Ah. Well, at that point the train stations were still jammed, no one was wearing masks, and they weren’t advising people not to travel. But once I got to Paris, it felt odd. I brought one of my best friends, and we were like, “What if we get stuck here? What if someone has it in the hotel?” A week later, none of us would have gone. But I have to say, Paris was still fun. We stayed up late and watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in French.

Our subscriber cover image is you, all dressed up in Givenchy, in front of the Eiffel Tower. It’s so glamorous but very poignant now. There were huge crowds of people there that day. Now, life has been shut down in that sense. Our ability to travel is curtailed, but we’re all still curious. I found it so cool how many monuments, zoos, and aquariums started live streaming their exhibits.

How much of that are you doing? Are you on Zoom?I’ve been using Houseparty with my two best friends every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. We’ve all got kids, so we put the TV on for them and sit in bed with a big cup of coffee and catch up, which has been quite nice.

You’ve also been working with the organization War Child, right?Yes. War Child runs child-friendly spaces in refugee camps and conflict zones where children can be protected and educated. Fundraising has come to a grinding halt because the economy has taken such a hit, so I’m planning to take over their Instagram to get more people interested. Marcus also released a cover of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and all proceeds go to War Child UK and The Grenfell Foundation. It’s such a beautiful song.

[…] MR: “What is the best piece of direction you’ve ever been given?”

CM: “Probably Paul Dano on Wildlife when I was really freaking out. In the scene I take my son to dinner with this man I’m having an affair with, then get really drunk and confused about what I’ve been doing and end up kissing this guy in front of my son. It’s a complete car crash. I was doing it and felt like it was the worst acting I’ve ever done in my life. Paul was like: ‘Yeah, you feel like that, she feels like that. Just do the worst version of this. Make it absolutely appalling and that will probably be somewhere where we need to be.’

MR: “That is so clever. And then when you watched the scene in the movie were you happy with it?”

CM: “Yeah, but you’re never like: ‘Woohoo. Ten points.’ And then I had a really good piece from Steve McQueen on Shame. We were doing a scene where I sing New York, New York in a bar with Michael Fassbender and I was terrified. I did my take and he was like: ‘Yeah, we got it’, but then: ‘Okay, so now just sing something else. We can’t have a song that’s written because we won’t be able to get the rights for it, so make something up.’ I remember walking into a toilet and humming random things that sounded like jazz song under my breath, then came out and sang something about a dying rose.

[…] MR: “Name a fellow actor who has impressed you, who has really blown you away in a scene.”

CM: “Oscar Isaac, when we were doing Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen brothers’ film. He was just on another level. It’s a really common thing for me, when it gets to my line and I’m like: ‘Oh fuck, sorry. Sorry you were just so good I got so distracted.’ All the time I feel that this happens.
