Kerry Washington, Salma Hayek, Selena Gomez, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys, Chloe Grace Moretz, Freida Pinto and Meryl Streep all lend their voices to the documentary Girl Rising. This important film “spotlights the impact access to education could have on the lives of young girls in developing countries and their local economies.”
Next Thursday is the one-hour series finale of 30 Rock. (Where are my tissues?) Check out a sneak peek of the last episode ever!
Season three of Game of Thrones is approaching fast and a new batch of cast photos have been released, including Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister. Will you be watching the HBO series when it returns on March 30, 2013?
Sundance is praising director Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s documentary Blackfish. The film “follows the history of killer whales in captivity leading up to 2010, where Tilikum, a captive whale, killed several trainers.” Blackfish has been acquired by Magnolia Pictures and CNN Films and check out this intense clip of the film below.
Sarah Chalke is set to guest star on Grey’s Anatomy. I wonder if she is recycling her wardrobe from Scrubs?
Audrey Tautou stars in director Michel Gondry’s latest visually stunning film Mood Indigo, based on the book L’Ecume des Jours by Boris Vian. Watch the trailer below to see the always-adorable Tautou in action. (How do we get Gondry to make a lesbian film?)
The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel will begin production this May. (Why are they making a sequel?) The original film won four Academy Awards in 2001, including best Foreign-Language Film, but this installment won’t be directed by Ang Lee and none of the first film’s original stars (Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh, Chow Yun-Fat) have signed on to return. (Once again, why are they making a sequel?)
