Produced by Scott Free Productions and based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, National Geographic Channel’s Killing Kennedy chronicles the build-up to one of America’s most shocking events – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald.  In 1959, two men faced major turning points in their lives, one in Washington, D.C., preparing to announce his presidential candidacy, and the other at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, renouncing his American citizenship.  This film charts the highs and lows of those two men, eventually intersecting with two shocking deaths that stunned a nation.  It stars Rob Lowe as President John F. Kennedy and Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald, with Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Ginnifer Goodwin talked about why she’s avoided playing Jackie Kennedy until now, her desire to show the private side of the woman, whether it was more daunting to play part of one of the most famous couples in literature (with Snow White and Prince Charming) or one of the most famous couples in American history (with the Kennedys), what a dream Rob Lowe was to work with, what it was like to see herself in the famous pink suit and hat, and the most emotional moment on set.  She also talked about how much she’s enjoyed being a part of her ABC television series Once Upon a Time for the last three seasons.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

SOMETHING BORROWED Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 2 years, 335 days ago

something-borrowed-slice

There are so many romantic comedies, with so many obvious conclusions, that it is midly interesting to watch Something Borrowed – though not because it reinvents the formula. No, it’s fascinating because it seems that the further this formula mutates, the less pleasant it makes its leads to somehow gin up a reason why two people who love each other aren’t having sex. Ginnfer Goodwin and Kate Hudson play old friends, with Hudson on the verge of marrying Colin Egglesfield – only for Goodwin to finally reveal her feelings for Egglesfield. Uh oh. Our review of Something Borrowed on Blu-ray follows after the jump.

SOMETHING BORROWED Review

by     Posted 3 years, 85 days ago

something-borrowed-slice

Romantic comedies aren’t designed to challenge their audience.  They’re meant as the most disposable of mainstream movies where a couple or an aspiring couple can go on a date, look at the love they want to have, and then leave for a night of necking and heavy petting.  If it were a more mature film and not the cinematic equivalent of a tissue, Something Borrowed would trust its audience to understand that the lead characters are good people who have done a bad thing but not an unforgivable thing.  Instead, the movie twists itself into knots trying to clear our consciences, get us to root for male and female lead, and hate Kate Hudson with every fiber of our being.  John Krasinski does his best to save the film, but it’s not enough to overcome the conceit of watching two people do their best to keep their love alive while sparing the feelings of their obnoxious friend/fiancée.

Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski Interview SOMETHING BORROWED

by     Posted 3 years, 87 days ago

In the romantic dramedy Something Borrowed, actress Ginnifer Goodwin plays Rachel, a talented attorney at a top New York law firm. She is a loyal friend who is generous, much to her own detriment, when it comes to her best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson). When Rachel unexpectedly reveals to Darcy’s fiancé, Dex (Colin Egglesfield), that she’s had a crush on him since their time in law school, one thing leads to another and Rachel finds herself caught between her life-long friendship with Darcy, and the love of her life.

At the press day, Ginnifer Goodwin and her co-star John Krasinski, who often is the voice of reason in the film, talked about the challenge of finding sympathy for characters doing very unlikeable things, why some friendships just aren’t meant to be, what songs they danced to in front of the mirror when they were kids, and the difference between exploring a character for film and for television. John also talked about his role in The Muppets, and Ginnifer talked about her ABC pilot Once Upon a Time, in which she plays Snow White. Check out what they had to say after the jump:

First Trailer for SOMETHING BORROWED Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Hudson, and Colin Egglesfield

I love a good romantic comedy, and so harbored high hopes for Something Borrowed since the early stages of development.  I have heard good things about the Emily Giffin novel/source material, and generally believe Ginnifer Goodwin can do no wrong.  But Kate Hudson in a rom-com is enough to caution anyone familiar with her work over the last decade.

The good news: Hudson is meant to play an awful person, and even gets the biggest laughs in the new trailer despite the presence of John Krasinski.  (Well played, casting director Mandy Sherman.)  See for yourself after the jump.

New Posters for SOMETHING BORROWED and A BETTER LIFE (Formerly THE GARDENER)

by     Posted 3 years, 179 days ago

something-borrowed-a-better-life-poster-slice

We have new posters for a pair of films I’m really rooting for in 2011.  The first is Something Borrowed, an adaptation of the first in a series of novels from Emily Giffin.  Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Hudson, Colin Egglesfield, and John Krasinski star.  Hudson’s name is a big red flag, but there are hints that Something Borrowed could be more than your average romantic comedy.

The second is A Better Life (formerly titled The Gardener), the latest from Chris Weitz.  For a brief minute, Weitz was the promising co-director behind the charming About a Boy before he was swallowed up by the big budget filmmaking of The Golden Compass and New MoonA Better Life scales things back down to the indie level: a gardener (Demian Bichir) and his son (Jose Julian) scour Los Angeles for a stolen truck vital to their livelihood in this tale inspired by The Bicycle Thief.  Hit the jump to view both posters.

Colin Farrell In Talks to Join Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, Kate Hudson, and Colin Egglesfield for SOMETHING BORROWED

Colin Farrell In Talks to Join Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, Kate Hudson, and Colin Egglesfield for SOMETHING BORROWED.jpg

Warner Bros. is keeping me intrigued in their upcoming romantic comedy Something Borrowed with some savvy casting, and not in that everyone-has-an-Oscar way.  I’d travel to Hades and back for female lead Ginnifer Goodwin.  John Krasinski is consistently great on The Office, and his supporting role in Borrowed could be the one that sends him over that darned feature film hump.  I don’t know much about co-star Colin Egglesfield, and they lost me a bit in signing Kate Hudson for the best friend role.  But a tweet from Production Weekly recaptures that energy with word of a wild (in every sense of the word) card in talks for the role of Marcus:  Colin Farrell.  Hmm.  Let’s talk about this in more detail after the jump.

John Krasinski In Talks To Star Alongside Ginnifer Goodwin in SOMETHING BORROWED

by     Posted 4 years, 143 days ago

John_Krasinski Ginnifer Goodwin SOMETHING BORROWED.jpg

The Office‘s John Krasinski may be out of the running for Captain America, but he is in negotiations to star alongside Ginnifer Goodwin in the romantic comedy Something Borrowed, a fate with its own pleasantries.  According to THR, Goodwin is a New York lawyer with an unwavering moral compass who falls for the fiance of her best friend on her 30th birthday.  The film is an adaptation of the first in a series of novels by Emily Griffin, which means a sequel (Something Blue) awaits in case Borrowed is successful.  Krasinski’s role as Goodwin’s confidant is of the supporting persuasion in Borrowed, but according to the source material he would be promoted to male lead in the theoretical Blue.

The logline doesn’t sound all that fresh, and director Luke Greenfield has a spotty track record which includes the loathsome Rob Schneider vehicle The Animal.  But Goodwin and Krasinski are all kinds of affable, which could do wonders to elevate the material.

Amanda Seyfried to Exit BIG LOVE

by     Posted 4 years, 222 days ago

January brings us the fourth season of HBO’s Big Love, but it may be the last to feature cast member Amanda Seyfried on a regular basis according to TV Guide. Seyfried plays the eldest of eight children of a polygamist family in suburban Utah, and will be written off the show in the eighth episode of the season.

The show’s creator, Will Scheffer, had this to say, “She’s been exploring her movie career for a couple of years now, and we’ve been giving her a lot of room to do that. I know having a commitment to a show for six months definitely cuts into her ability to pursue that career.” Just so there’s no confusion, Scheffer continues, “She’s moving away”. Hit the jump for what effect this may have on the show.

HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU DVD Review

by     Posted 5 years, 42 days ago

he_s_just_not_that_into_you_movie_image_jennifer_connelly__jennifer_aniston.jpgI’ll admit it.  My fiancée made me do it.  She squealed with joy as I presented the possible things I could review.  I absolutely had to get this because I am *that* into her.  (One should note, she’d read the book and she’s already watched this DVD twice.)

Me, on the other hand… I came to the property cold.  I found a series of interlocking vignettes, some better than others, in the vein of Love Actually.  This film shares many traits with that one – a powerful and recognizable cast being the most prevalent.  However, this film is often on the opposite side of the coin because the title says it all He’s Just Not That Into You.
