"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

Say What, Jess & Tom?

Behold, Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston on the set of the new Guillermo del Toro thriller Crimson Peak (in costumes by Kate Hawley who also did the clothes for 'Pacific Rim'). This begs for a "say what?" so amuse us with a caption or dialogue. I'll choose a winner soon. After the jump see the winners of the last 'say what double feature' starring inexhaustible Nicki Kidman.


And the winners are...


[Kidman briefly considers von Trier's request for a "Nymphomaniac" audition tape.]



Joseph: "Don't give up! This is the way, straight to DVD!"

They win their choice of banner theme up top for one week, right here at TFE.

I love her look. She's an awesome wig actress. And for whatever reason there doesn't seem to be a lot of those. Regardless of how often actresses are required to do usual things with their hair for a character. Chastain should win an Oscar for that photo alone. Because the photo just screams promise.

Helena Bonham WHO?

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSan FranCinema

Jessica : You might want to join me under the umbrella, Tom. Otherwise the intensity of my talent might burn you with its heat once the cameras are on. You know these cameras, they love me, they really love me.

Remake Sweeney Todd. NOW!!!

Tom: Is it possible I beat Cumberbatch to an Oscar nomination?
Jess: Who cares? Burton-bella for the win?
Tom: Hmm.

Tom : Could Guillermo not have just shot the film in chiaroscuro? It's horror isn't it? By Odin's Raven. Before the end of the day I won't even pass for a ghost anymore.
Jessica: And you thought the parasol was too ostentatious...

Jessica: I wouldn't be wearing this dreadful dress if Jennifer Lawrence didn't steal my Oscar.

Tom: Sit still!

Jessica Chastain: After this I have Blonde and Zookeepers Wife and then off to Cannes and possibly Venice in the fall

Tom Hiddleston: Honey, I'm Locke 24/7 so don't tell me about being busy.

Sweet! Banner selection is an awesome prize.

Can I literally request anything movie-related? If so, how about something related to Taraji Henson? I've been thinking a lot about her lately, with the announcement that she'll be starring in Lee Daniels's hip hop TV show and this article from Film School Rejects about how underutilized she is. Is that specific enough?

May 9, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDusty

Dusty -- if you really want Taraji you can have her but it's better if you choose an topic or emotion or theme or visual riff that can have corresponding pictures.

(for what it's worth, the second Kidman pic is from a low-budget indie Australian movie that also stars Hugo Weaving)

May 9, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn

I have spent *way* more time thinking about this than I should have, but after doing some Taraji searches (and not finding very much), I decided to change my mind. Instead, since it's May and we're all ready for some rest after a difficult winter, how about restorative facial treatments? I had The Player, Mrs. Doubtfire, and American Horror Story in mind, but maybe you can think of others?

May 9, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDusty


Brazil (1985) the face lift scene. That literally is stretching a woman's facial skin like Play-Doh.

May 9, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Reason #2353468 that I need to finally watch Brazil!

Tom: Once upon a noontime dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious screenplay of forgotten Thor--
Jessica: Tom?
Tom: While I sweated, nearly melting, suddenly there came a belting,
As of some one loudly pelting--
Jessica: Tom, get out of the sun. You're going to get heatstroke.
Tom: --pelting at my trailer door.
`'Tis some superfan,' I muttered, `pelting at my trailer door -
Only this, and nothing more.'
Jessica: Damn these English actors. He's worse than Jeremy Irons.

"Think it's a bit awkward to be doing a Burton-Bonham-Depp biopic while they're still alive?"

May 9, 2014 | Unregistered Commentercaroline

Sir Thomas Sharpe: What a marvelous afternoon for a picnic in the park.
Lady Lucille Sharpe: I’m glad we decided to both wear black it was the right colour choice for this sunny, warm day.
Sir Thomas Sharpe: We do stand out from the others in the park.
Lady Lucille Sharpe: Darling, why is it you have the comfy beach chair and I have this small stool.
Sir Thomas Sharpe: Well you chose to bring the parasol so I took the chair. We can trade if you like.

Tom: In my next movie, I play a homosexual eunuch in Edwardian garb... Producers say that it is total Best Actress bait.

Jessica: Fuck you.
