Nicole Kidman is One Perfect Stranger 

By Spencer Coile 

It seems as though the success of Big Little Lies was only the start for the team of Nicole Kidman, producer Bruna Papandrea, and author Liane Moriarty. Kidman's Blossom Films and Papandrea's Made Up Stories have closed a preemptive deal for the rights to Moriarty's latest novel, Nine Perfect Strangers. Kidman will star and executive produce, while Papandrea and Moriarty will also serve as executive producers. And what's most astonishing: the book won't even be out until November 9. 

It's too soon to tell whether it will be a film or TV adaptation, but what we can glean from the novel is that it follows nine strangers who meet at a remote health resort -- some are there to lose weight, others to reboot their lives. What they learn is that attaining their goals is far more difficult than they initially thought. 

Although Nine Perfect Strangers is not technically complete yet, Kidman and Papandrea said: 

Simply put, Liane Moriarty is a force of nature, not just as a virtuosic author, but as a collaborator and friend. We’re beyond thrilled to be making Nine Perfect Strangers with this extraordinary woman.

And after Big Little Lies, how can we disagree?

Yes No Maybe So: "Aquaman"

by Ilich Mejía

After being announced four years ago, DC's Aquaman is finally showing some promising signs of life. Director James Wan was joined by the film's cast at Comic-Con this weekend where they presented members of the press and fans with the film's first official trailer. The film's stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Amber Heard (Mera) promised big action and a sci-fi fantasy, but more importantly Nicole Kidman was also there. 

Wonder Woman started turning some of us DC agnostics into intrigued believers. Will Aquaman uphold its predecessor's efforts? Before (or after) we get ahead of ourselves, let's pick its trailer apart after the cut...

Yes No Maybe So: "Boy Erased"

by Nathaniel R

Another Oscar hopeful trailer coming at you. Focus Features will begin the platform release of  Boy Erased this November 2nd which is of course a prime Oscar date. December is sometimes too late but November is a sweet spot, rarely too early nor too late exactly if the film is high profile enough with Oscar pedigree. Not that November is easy. There will be a ton of competition for media attention. 

We now have the poster with Lucas Hedges praying for a second Oscar nomination to release him of this gay burden? And the trailer has arrived too. The buzz is already strong for the acting which is no surprise with the trio of Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe jerking the tears... but can the film itself also impress? The trailer and a Yes No Maybe So breakdown are after the jump...

Three Questions for Nicole Kidman's Birthday

We went all out for Nicole Kidman's 50th birthday last year with 50 Appropriate Ways to Celebrate so this year on her 51st (happy birthday diva!) we'll keep it simpler.

Answer me these questions three in the comments:

 

  1. What's your favorite performance of hers that isn't from her legend-making 2001-2004 run (i.e. The Others-Moulin Rouge!-The Hours-Cold Mountain-Dogville-Birth what a genius run that was!) 
  2. What single scene -- minus the opera seen in Birth --pops into your head the most when her name is invoked?
  3. What's a performance of hers that you haven't seen (she works so much you're surely missing something!) that you're most curious about?

and if you're on twitter go really crazy and do the 10 question meme

Thoughts I Had... "Aquaman"

Chris here. What hath Star Wars the need to fill the calendar with weekly franchises wrought: we are getting an Aquaman movie this Christmas. No matter because it marks Nicole Kidman's return to superhero fare, which means COSTUMES! Gowns, beautiful gowns.

Today we got our very first glimpse of Nicole as Aquaman's queen mother Atlanna on the Entertainment Weekly cover to the left. But with this exciting news comes the realization that the film... looks really promising? Perhaps DC can shed its Batman/Superman woes (if not match their Wonder Woman highs) thanks to director James Wan and his long proven ability to thrill. Wan has previously given us horror greats Insidious and The Conjuring, not to mention Furious 7, the most beloved of that particular franchise.

With this cover comes a slew of new images, and I have thoughts...
