Hector and the Search for Happiness - Peter Chelsom, Germany/Canada North American Premiere
Hector is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. Deciding to break out of his deluded routine, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive formula for true happiness… and so begins his larger-than-life adventure with riotously funny results. Starring Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Simon Pegg, Stellan Skarsgård and Jean Reno.
Another trailer for Hector and the Search for Happiness has been released today. This time it’s the trailer for the US.
Rosamund looked stunning while attending the Christian Dior fashion show during Paris Fashion Week two weeks ago. I’ve added a few photos of her during the event to our gallery.
I’ve added captures of Rosamund as Penny in the movie A Long Way Down. Rosamund has a very small role but she was amazing as usual.
“Gone Girl,” the murder-mystery thriller starring Ben Affleck, will open this year’s 52nd annual New York Film Festival, Variety has learned.
The Twentieth Century Fox release, which was directed by David Fincher and co-financed by New Regency, is based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn. Rosamund Pike plays the title character, a wife who mysteriously vanishes from her home one day, causing her husband (Affleck) to be suspected of killing her.
The opening night gala, held on Sept. 26, is now an important stop in the awards season race. Fincher previously opened the NYFF with 2010′s “The Social Network,” which went on to win three Oscars (it was nominated for eight). Last year’s selection, “Captain Phillips,” landed a best picture Oscar nod. Other awards-friendly titles, such as “Her” and “Inside Llewyn Davis,” also premiered at the festival in 2013, which has gotten more competitive with Toronto, perhaps as a result of its later date and smaller slate (about 25) of films.
“Gone Girl” opens nationwide on Oct. 3.
Rosamund Pike and David Tennant had a ”bonding day” at a theme park.
The ‘What We Did On Our Holiday‘ stars were joined by their young co-stars Emilia Jones, 12, Bobby Smalldridge, nine, and six-year-old Harriet Turnbull at Chessington World of Adventures in Surrey, South England, and though they had a ”lovely” day, it wasn’t as fun as it could have been because the former ‘Doctor Who’ star kept getting mobbed by fans.
Rosamund said: ”We had a lovely, but quite difficult day.”
However, the 35-year-old actress believed the trip was worthwhile because it helped when shooting the movie, which follows a divorcing couple who travel with their children from London to Scotland to celebrate the kids’ grandfather’s birthday.
She said: ”I really believed in us as a family — I believed in the five of us.”
And the on-screen family were sad when filming in Scotland came to an end.
She told the Daily Mail newspaper: ”We made the grounds of that house our own, and had our base camp there. We had a sitting room where we’d read the papers, watch YouTube, muck around with the children. We’d go for dinner in the evenings.
”Everybody was tearful when it became time to go and I think it was a really profound experience for those children. Harriet, the little one, had never done any filming before, and Bobby and Emilia were lovely, too.”
