The new X Files movie is just about out, and I can’t tell you how psyched I am for Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny to be back in the spotlight where they belong. Sure, the movie has been getting some not-so-hot reviews, but I don’t care at all. You’ll still see me at the midnight showing wearing a black tee shirt that says “I Want To Believe”.
I used to watch that show every week, I seriously never missed an episode. Yes, I’m fully aware that makes me a geek, and I don’t care. It was the best show on TV and it ended too soon, damnit! Although I do have to say, Californication is pretty effin’ sweet as well.
Gillian Anderson and Simon Pegg attended the premiere tonight of How To Lose Friends and Alienate People at the Cannes Film Festival tonight. The two star in the film, based on Toby Young’s memoir of the same name. In the film, a British writer struggles to fit in at a high-profile magazine in New York. It also stars Jeff Bridges and Kirsten Dunst, among others.
The film Blindness made its premiere tonight at the Cannes Film Festival and young stars and Hollywood legends alike were at the premiere to support the film and its cast. Among those walking the red carpet were Mischa Barton, Eva Longoria, Gillian Anderson and Faye Dunaway along with cast members Julianne Moore, Danny Glover and Gael Garcia Bernal.
The film tells the story of a doctor’s wife who becomes the only person with the ability to see in a town where everyone is struck with a mysterious case of sudden blindness. She feigns illness in order to take care of her husband as her surrounding community breaks down into chaos and disorder. The film is based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago.
