I have gone through one of the most suffering categories of this fansite for lack of images (theatre productions) and added a bunch of new photos of Helen Mirren.
Some are completely newly created albums for some of her stage credits. Enjoy!
British movie star Helen Mirren will portray former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir in a new film, retelling the story of the Yom Kippur War, according to a statement by the Embankment company.
Production on the film is set to commence in October, and it will be directed by Academy Award winner Guy Nattiv, who previously directed the short film “Skin” which won the award.
The screenplay will be written by Nicholas Martin Kuhn, who will also be the producer. According to the statement, he will attempt to focus the drama of and high-stakes nature of Meir’s decisions during the Yom Kippur War.
“As someone who was born during the Yom Kippur War, I am honored to tell this fascinating story about the first and only woman to ever lead Israel,” Nattiv said. “Nicholas Martin’s brilliant script dives into Golda’s final chapter as the country faces a deadly surprise attack during the holiest day of the year, a core of delusional generals undermining Golda’s judgment, all the while undergoing secret treatments for her illness.”
The gallery has been updated with some screenshots of Helen Mirren at the SAG Awards, also I added a video in the archive of a short interview. Enjoy!
The gallery has been updated with over 1300 HD screencaptures of Helen Mirren in 2010 movie “The Tempest”. Enjoy!
A shipwreck casts members of a royal court ashore on a mysterious island. Their fateful arrival is no accident, for it was engineered by Prospera (Helen Mirren), a sorceress whom these men banished, and who now plans to take vengeance on them. With the help of Caliban and Ariel, her sometimes-unwilling aides, Prospera brings her powers to bear on her former tormentors. Then love casts a spell on her daughter and the king’s son, and Prospera is powerless to intervene.
Prophetic, frenetic and shockingly brutal, the film became a British classic. For its 40th anniversary, Mirren and other cast members relive their roles in the menacing gangland masterpiece
It has been 40 years since the release of The Long Good Friday, a gangster film still revered as one of the best British movies of all time. Shot in London in the late 1970s and starring the late Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren, it told the story of an underworld boss trying desperately to stop the IRA from dismantling his empire.
The backdrop for the film was the London Docklands, then mostly undeveloped. With corrupt city planners in his pocket, Hoskins’ character – the pugnacious, barrel-chested Harold Shand – attempts to woo the New York mafia into a partnership to transform the area, selling the idea to them with a speech during a trip up the Thames on his yacht. “Our country is not an island any more,” he snarls. “We’re a leading European state. And I believe this is the decade in which London will become Europe’s capital … no other city in the world has got, right at its centre, such an opportunity for profitable progress.”
Then, mayhem. Prophetic, political, but above all bloody and brutal, the film won critical acclaim in the UK. Empire has ranked it among the top 20 British films ever made, while the New York Times described it as “a swift, sharp-edged gangster story in a classic mould”.
What was it like to make? To mark the 40th anniversary of its general release, the Guardian spoke with three members of the cast: Mirren, Derek Thompson and Paul Barber.
They retain a special affection for The Long Good Friday, and for Hoskins, who died in 2014. It was a film that brought together an unusual and chaotic ensemble to create something they all regard as unique.
Helen Mirren has closed a deal to play the villain Hespera, a daughter of Atlas, in New Line and DC Films’ Shazam: Fury of the Gods, the sequel to the box office hit adaptation of the comic book. Zachary Levi is set to reprise his role of Shazam, with Rachel Zelger also aboard.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is the anticipated sequel to New Line and DC’s 2019 film Shazam! and will continue the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!” is struck by the Living Lightning of the gods and transformed into his adult superhero alter ego.
Levi returns as the kid-at-heart superhero who is bestowed with the powers of six gods: the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. While Shazam is a formidable champion, Billy is still just a fun-loving kid trying to navigate high school while learning how to use his powers.
The filmmaking team behind Shazam! is reuniting to create the sequel. David F. Sandberg is directing from a screenplay by Henry Gayden. Peter Safran is producing through The Safran Company.
Shazam is based on the DC character created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. Shazam! the movie was the No. 1 film worldwide on its opening weekend in 2019, going on earn over $366 million worldwide on a relatively modest budget for a superhero film.
Mirren won an Oscar and a BAFTA for her performance in The Queen, a Tony Award and an Olivier Award for the same role in The Audience, three BAFTA Television Awards, four Primetime Emmy Awards, and five SAG Awards for various roles. Her diverse body of work includes a starring role in the upcoming anthology series Solos as well as the film F9, reprising her role as Queenie from the latest Fast & Furious installment.
The 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards are nearing and its list of presenters is getting the star treatment.
Helen Mirren, Jimmy Fallon, Henry Golding, Cynthia Erivo and Ethan Hawke will present on Sunday, April 4 during the 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The stars join Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Lily Collins, Daveed Diggs and Sterling K. Brown, who are already set to present that night.
This year’s SAG Awards will be different from past shows. Earlier this month, the guild announced its upcoming awards show will be pre-taped and will only last one hour.
“We’re looking at trying to do a unique award ceremony in an hour and leave people saying, which they very rarely do [with an awards show], ‘Man, I wish we had more,'” co-executive producer Todd Milliner told Variety.
The show will include the presentation of 13 awards and feature comedy bits as well as the traditional “I Am An Actor” segments from nominees and other presenters. The event will also include an “In Memoriam” segment.
According to Variety, the awards will be handed out in the days ahead of the air date in Zoom rooms for each category, where the nominees will gather and the winner will be announced. The winner will then get the chance to make an acceptance speech.
That means spoilers are possible, but co-executive producer Kathy Connell hopes that won’t happen. Will & Grace actor Sean Hayes rounds the team of executive producers.
“We hope they respect the show enough and everybody does, and their fellow actors, that they don’t want to disappoint the audience at home by letting any surprises go,” Connell said of nominees who will know outcomes ahead of the show’s airdate.
The 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast on TNT and TBS on Sunday, April 4, 2021, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, with an encore airing on TNT at 11 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. PT.
