November 23rd 2014 • by Jess • No CommentsElectric Slide, Videos

1983 Los Angeles is full of beautiful girls, luxurious mansions, and glamorous parties. Eddie Dodson (Jim Sturgess), a hip and charismatic dealer of antique furniture for the rich and famous, is living the high life. When Eddie meets the cool and aloof Pauline (Isabelle Lucas), the attraction is instant and the two live out each other’s fast-paced fantasies until Eddie’s high-rolling life catches up with him and loan sharks start knocking on his door. To pay off his debts, Eddie and Pauline begin a spree of bank robberies across LA, charming tellers at over 60 banks to hand over the cash. Now the two are not only on the run from loan sharks but also have the police hot on their trail.

Damon Gameau goes Super Size on the sweet stuff in shocking sugar experiment

IT’S been 10 years since Morgan Spurlock existed on just McDonald’s for a month in the groundbreaking film, Super Size Me.

Now our waistlines face a new threat, and another guinea pig has undergone some risky self-experimentation to try to make sense of it.

Australian TV actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau stars in That Sugar Filmwhich will air in Australian cinemas in early 2015, in which he exists on “healthy” low-fat food with a high sugar content for 60 days.

The results are more shocking than anyone could have expected.

Within three weeks, the previously healthy Damon was feeling terrible all the time, lethargic and snapping at the slightest thing.

A visit to the doctor confirmed the worst — he had the beginnings of fatty liver disease.

“I had no soft drink, chocolate, ice cream or confectionery,” Damon told Sunrise this week. “All the sugars that I was eating were found in perceived healthy foods, so low-fat yoghurts and muesli bars and cereals and fruit juices, sports drinks … these kind of things that often parents would give their kids thinking they’re doing the right thing.”

Russell Crowe’s directorial debut to be released in April by Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. Pictures says it has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to actor Russell Crowe’s directorial debut — The Water Diviner — from RatPac Entertainment.

Set for release April 24, the big-screen drama stars Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Jai Courtney, Ryan Corr, James Fraser, Ben O’Toole and Isabel Lucas.

The announcement regarding its American release was made Friday by Greg Silverman, the studio’s president of creative development and worldwide production; Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and international distribution; and Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution.

Shot primarily on location in the wilds of the Australian outback and Turkey, the film is a post-war drama which follows an Aussie man on his travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli in search of his three missing sons.

“The studio has a long history with Russell, going back to his stellar breakthrough performance in L.A. Confidential. We’re excited to be collaborating with him again, this time on his directorial debut,” Silverman said in a statement.

“Russell has proven time and again what an incredible on-screen talent he is, and it’s a thrill for us to be able to bring not only his first feature behind the camera — but such a moving story — to U.S. audiences,” added Kroll.

Isabel Lucas Confirms She Is In Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups”

Isabel Lucas Confirms She Is In Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups,’ Says Film Will Be Out In 2015

Over the past few months, some of the actors who stopped by the set of Terrence Malick’s “Knight Of Cups” have shared their unique experiences working on the movie. Joel Kinnaman described having to deal with a seventeen-page monologue, Cate Blanchett called it a “quasi-religious” experience, Teresa Palmer talked about Malick’s method of “torpedoing” the actors, and Antonio Banderas thinks he’s made the final cut, though some of the material he doesn’t even remember shooting. And now another actress reveals that she too has probably survived the editing process, but adds that we’ll perhaps be waiting much longer to see the finished product.

Over the past few months, some of the actors who stopped by the set of Terrence Malick’s “Knight Of Cups” have shared their unique experiences working on the movie.

And now another actress reveals that she too has probably survived the editing process, but adds that we’ll perhaps be waiting much longer to see the finished product.

Yesterday we ran into “Electric Slide” actress Isabel Lucas and her director on that film, Tristan Patterson, as they made their rounds at the Tribeca Film Festival. We couldn’t help but ask what she had coming up next, partially because we were kind of curious if she was going to pop up in the next “Transformers” movie (remember when she was Shia LeBeouf’s robotic dorm room seductress in “Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen”?) Instead, she gave us some details about her involvement in “Knight Of Cups,” including a potential release date.

“I worked with Terrence Malick right before working with Tristan, two years ago,” Lucas revealed. “So ‘Knight of Cups’ will be coming out next year.”

When we joked that we hope she had made the cut, since you never know with Terrence Malick films, Lucas confirmed that she had communicated with the elusive director and that he had made it very clear that she was still in the movie. “He said I am definitely in the film.” Patterson interjected: “She did ADR!”

As always you never really know until it’s all put together, but you can probably count on Isabel Lucas definitely, probably, almost 100% being in “Knight of Cups.” As for the release, it looks like Malick is taking his time and is in no particular hurry to get it out there, so shrug off thoughts of a festival premiere later this year and keep your eyes on 2015.

Sydney Style Edit Q&A with Isabel

February 1st 2014 • by Jess • No CommentsStyle

Big thanks to an anonymous visitor for pointing out this fab new Q&A with Isabel, in which she talks about her style, and how her choices are influenced by her dedication to the environment. There’s also a pretty new picture of Isabel and the blog author, taken back in December in Australia. Because it’s more of a ‘personal’ blog rather than a big commercial one I won’t re-post the interview here; instead, hop on over to Sydney Style Edit to read it for yourself.

Isabel looked so chic and stunning in the pages of the December issue of Australian Vogue! She posed in Chanel for a cricket-themed photoshoot for the magazine – there was no interview, unfortunately, as it was just a fashion spread. The photos are just gorgeous, and this is one of my new favourites of Isabel. Plus, we now know what she was doing in these photos ;-)
