Lessons from the success of "It"

"The marketing was smart...they did a good job of using a "less is more" approach" - Jakey

 "This is a rare case of a movie that was perfect to remake: has a strong nostalgic following but which also kind of sucks and has a lot of room for improvement. You get the pre-installed fan base but don't have the pressure of re-creating and improving on a legit classic." - MJS

We Love You Too, Sibel

Sibel Kekilli out and about in Germany

Love the 'Je T'Aime' tee-shirt. Simple, hot.

She's currently our favorite German actress and we want more after Head On (2004) and When We Leave (2009). Currently crossing fingers that the new exposure from Game of Thrones (she plays "Shae" the courtesan) will open up major doors for her.

Game of Thrones is actually doing all right by our favorite foreign actresses. Next season (two months away) The Netherlands' Carice Van Houten (Black Book) joins the cast as the frightening priestess Melisandre... The Red Lady. Here's a new gallery of photos from season 2.

I wish I liked the show more. (sigh)

Shae (Sibel) and Melisandre (Carice)

If anything can convince me to keep watching it's probably these two. We shall see.

Aww, I love Sibel. I saw a few pictures of her at the Berlinale opening gala just now, I'm sure she'll walk quite a few red carpets during the festival. For some reason, I'd love to see her pose with (juror!) Jake Gyllenhaal on one of those occasions. I just think they'd look cute together.

Regarding GOT, I hadn't read the books before watching the show, but now I'm hooked. It took me ages to finish the first book (That's one of the "problem" with the show, it stays so true to the books that reading them afterwards can be pretty boring), but now I'm about a third through
book 4 and loving it.

Wasn't familiar with Game of Thrones. Watched the season in two days. Love it. Look forward to more.

Not sure I'm gonna read the books, but I did buy the first one.

And yes, Kekilli is way cool.

Sibel is now also a detective in a German cop show, so I am happy to have two possibilities to see her more regularly.

February 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteroinone
