“The Bling Ring” is going to premiere in Australia during SFF (Sydney Film Festival). There will be two screenings of the movie at 13th and 15th of June. If you live close and want to get a ticket you can check here. We don’t have any info if Emma will actually attend but hopefully she will.
The Sydney Film Festival have added two more features to the upcoming event, including the Aussie premiere of Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring.
The film was a recent showing at Cannes and stars Harry Potter’s Emma Watson. The flick has generated plenty of buzz for its portrayal of fame, celebrity and crime. Pretty sure Watson is no Hermione anymore judging by the trailer.
Also added to the SFF program is Aboriginal Heart, a short piece by local, indigenous flimmaker Michelle Blanchard, which is set in remote NSW.
Last week we announced the panel of jurors who will determine the winner of the Sydney Film Prize at the event – our own Hugo Weaving is the Jury President.
The festival starts on Wednesday 5 June – why not check out some of Film Carew’s picks as the best of the already seen flicks on the program.
2013 Teen Choice Awards Nominations got out and Emma is once again nominated. This time nomination is Best Drama Actress for her role as Sam in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”. The movie itself got more nominations for Best Drama Film and Best Drama Actor for Logan Lerman.
Make sure to vote for Emma, Logan and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” daily.
I updated the gallery with a couple of “This is The End” stills with Emma and some official posters of the film (sadly without Emma).
In this clip Emma meets up with James, Seth, Danny, Craig, Jay & Jonah and declares it’s a Zombie invasion:
As you can see I updated both main site and gallery designs with some fresh ones, yes our gallery was with the same design since the opening of the site 3 years ago, it was definitely time for a new one. Hope you like them.
Also I’m working on small gallery updates mostly focusing on Emma’s projects at the moment. So I updated “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” with missing stills and posters and also updated old stills with higher quality versions.

The British actress says she gorged on reality TV for her role in Sofia Coppola’s festival sidebar film.
CANNES – It is the first, and possibly the last, time that work by the Kardashians, Paris Hilton and Lauren Conrad all have been cited collectively as essential research for a film at Cannes.
Particularly surprising is the person doing the research: Emma Watson, best known as Hermione in the Harry Potter films. The British actress gorged on reality TV for her role as Nicki, a high-schooler-turned-burglar in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring.
“I watched a lot of Kardashians, I watched a lot of Paris Hilton, I watched some of The Hills, and then really I was just trying to understand [Nicki’s] psychology,” said Watson. “Because you might easily have made Nicki feel like a parody … and somehow I had to understand and empathize with her and really that was my biggest challenge second to getting the accent down.”
Her reality confession came at the press conference for the film, unspooling as the opening-night gala screening for Un Certain Regard. Coppola’s portrait of fame-seeking students who robbed celebrities’ homes – including that of Hilton, who has a cameo in the film – was inspired by true events.
Coppola said neither Hilton nor Lindsay Lohan (another victim of the thieves) had yet seen the film “as far as I know,” adding, “I believe Paris Hilton might be coming tonight.” American Israel Broussard, who plays young thief Marc, got a laugh when he confessed to having to learn to pronounce various designer names including “Dior” properly.
For her part, Coppola said she had no misgivings about returning to Cannes after the lukewarm reception her 2006 movie Marie Antoinette received. “I’m always very happy to show a movie here,” said Coppola. “Cannes seems an appropriate place for Bling.
Actress Emma Watson has spoken of the perils of celebrity, as she warns the “full time job” of creating a brand to stay in the headlines is totally different to her “craft”.

Watson, who is appearing at the Cannes Film Festivalto promote her new film The Bling Ring, said she wanted people to understand the distinction between actors and the celebrities of reality television.
Saying celebrity had become a “weird job description”, she added it was now “totally a full time job”.
Speaking in Cannes, she disclosed she had spent time watching American reality television to research her role, of a would-be model living in LA.
