Miss You Already Trailer


Milly has rather a modest life as a community gardener, living on a boat in London with her long term boyfriend Jago with whom she is trying for a baby. And while her relationship with Jago is at its peak, Milly's real soulmate is in her best friend Jess; a rather more outspoken woman with a booming career, husband and two children, and who has been by Milly's side since they were very small children. They have always been there for each other despite how different they are, but their friendship is about to be tested for the first time when Jess is suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer. Now with mortality threatening to break the duo apart, they must find a way to keep on smiling even when things get even harder with Jess' treatment, and the stress that comes with having a potentially terminal illness.

The Most Successful Women In The Film Industry


Sofia Coppola Jane Goldman Catherine Hardwicke Kathryn Bigelow

Despite an unfortunate continuation of women in subordinate roles, female actresses in Hollywood are very much in the ascendance, refusing to play second fiddle to the traditional male hierarchy. However, it is behind the camera where male domination prevails. Only four women in the entire history of the Academy Awards have been nominated for the Best Director Oscar, Lina Wertmüller for Seven Beauties (1976), Jane Champion for The Piano (1993), Sofia Coppola for Lost In Translation (2003) and Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (2009). Bigelow is the only female director to take home the award. Such an overwhelming consortium of male influence seems perturbing, but a slew of female industry players are intent on overthrowing the status quo, breaking down gender barriers and paving the way for innovation on multiple levels. From the increasingly gargantuan Marvel juggernaut to low budget art-house pictures, women are beginning to make their mark in spheres in dire need of a feminine touch, free from a traditionally testosterone-fuelled male outlook.

The stars of The Twilight Saga walked down the red carpet for a premiere of the franchise for the last ever time last night (November 12) and there was no surprise which two of the cast were taking center stage, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson making a public reunion after promotional trails that have seen them take on different territories.

Kristen Stewart Is Romantic

Kristen Stewart claims she is just as romantic as her 'Twilight Saga' character Bella Swan.

The 22-year-old 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' actress - who recently rekindled her four year romance with British co-star Robert Pattinson after her ''momentary indiscretion'' with director Rupert Sanders - has revealed she shares a lot of similar qualities with her character and also has a huge amount of faith in her and Robert's relationship.

Kristen told Marie Claire Mexico: ''Bella has faith and hope. She knows what she wants and trusts people. She's loyal.''

Rupert Wyatt To Drop Out Of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes Sequel?

Rupert Wyatt looks set to drop out of the sequel to 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'.

The British director is said to be considering quitting the highly anticipated follow-up, titled 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes', because Studio 20th Century Fox want the next film to be released for May 23, 2014 - which Rupert reportedly thinks is over-ambitious, Deadline reports.

His decision comes as a surprise, as 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' has already been written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, with Fox giving them the go ahead.

Twilight Director Warned Robert Pattinson Not To Pursue Kristen Stewart


Catherine Hardwicke Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke warned Robert Pattinson not to pursue co-star and future girlfriend Kristen Stewart on the first few days of shooting the movie - because she was underage.

The filmmaker had already tapped Stewart to play emotionally-guarded Bella Swan in early 2007 and she had narrowed down the candidates for her vampire love interest Edward Cullen when Pattinson walked in for an audition.

Hardwicke tells Elle magazine, "Every two hours, I had another guy come over to my house. Rob and Kristen sat down at the table and did the biology scene. I felt the sparks. I could see the attraction. Kristen was very vocal - she knew she had the strongest connection with Rob. I said, 'Let me have a day to see if it translates to the screen.'"

Watching from afar, Hardwicke knew the two were destined to become a couple so she pulled 21-year-old Pattinson aside to inform the British actor of America's age of consent laws, which would make a romance between the pair illegal until Stewart, then 17, reached her next birthday.

Catherine Hardwicke Thought Twilight Script Was 'Horrible'


Catherine Hardwicke Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Stephenie Meyer The Script

'Twilight' director Catherine Hardwicke thought the original script for the film was "horrible".

The film maker helmed the first episode in the vampire movie franchise - starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - but was initially put off by The Script, and only agreed to make it after reading the original novel by Stephenie Meyer.

She told New York Magazine:I thought the script was horrible, but then I looked it up on the internet and I thought, 'OK, it's based on a book and people tend to like it. There's gotta be something there'."So I read the book and I thought it captured that feeling of being madly in love. And I thought, 'That's kind of a good challenge, to see if, as a filmmaker, I could make you feel that giddy, crazy'."

Catherine Hardwicke's Near-fatal On-set Accident


Catherine Hardwicke Lords of Dogtown

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was forced to shut down production on her cult 1995 skateboarding film Lords of Dogtown after suffering a near-fatal accident on set.

Hardwicke was shooting the movie with late actor Heath Ledger and Emile Hersch in California when she tumbled over the lip of an empty swimming pool, and the nasty fall almost claimed the filmmaker's life - she spent 10 days in hospital recovering from serious head injuries.

Speaking about the accident in a New York Magazine article, she recalls, "Ten-foot fall. Cracked my head. Everyone thought I was dead. There’s video of it where people are screaming, crying."
