Obviously the Oscar can't be far behind.

Too commercial of a movie for that dear Nic but glad to see McAdams back in the multiplex :)

Yeah, I know. I'm sure it's misplaced but there are parts of that "Morning Glory" trailer that freak me out a little. Like the shot of her walking across the bridge with her head back and her eyes closed. I mean, I know Rachel can sell it but, still, those sorts of shots worry me.

I don't know, we will see man :) I'm pretty they already pissed me off by changing Patrick Wilson's character from the antagonist in the first draft of the script to a boyfriend role... In any case, there was positive buzz when it was screened so it could be a sleeper hit (commercially)

What are you talking about? This movie has everything. A very attractive white woman from a middle class home (the world's most oppressed category of person) trying to make it in the big city, a woman in power she has to work for, Harrison Ford unaware he's in a movie, and a love interest who's as exciting as a can of Off-Off-White(TM) paint from the Home Depot! I haven't been this excited to see a movie since Katherine Heigl died in that boating accident.

I'm looking forward to this actually. The trailer was put together well I thought.

Interestingly, I learned just this weekend that Ms. McAdams herself was in Chicago this past week filming scenes for her latest movie. This means my two favorite actresses were in the city where I live at the same time. I'm not sure what this means but it must mean something.

I did enjoy that article. Thanks for the link. I'll also go ahead and mention right now there is an epic McAdams post ahead in the next couple weeks. As if anyone needed any more confirmation of my self-diagnosed OCD.

Can anyone explain to me why in movie posters like this one, the names are not above the right people's heads?

Nicholas Prigge said...

Well, Rachel McAdams gets top billing, see, which puts her in front of Harrison Ford's name but because she gets top billing she ALSO has to be at the center of the poster and so there you go.

I think. It's possible I just made that up. But it sounds plausible.
