HD screen captures from “Into the Woods” have been added to our gallery. The movie was released on Blu-Ray and DVD yesterday so be sure to pick up a copy. Massive thanks to my friend Claudia, who is the webmaster of Christine Baranski Mania!, for donating the captures.
Deadline is reporting that Anna has joined “Table 19” which will reunite her with director Jeffrey Blitz.
Anna Kendrick is reteaming with Rocket Science director Jeffrey Blitz for the comedy Table 19 about a group of strangers who are marooned at the misfits table at a destination wedding. Pic begins shooting next week in Atlanta, GA. 21 Laps and 3311 are producing with the latter financing. Film also stars Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew.
Rocket Science was one of the early arthouse success for Kendrick before her profile was catapulted by Twilight films and her Oscar-nominated best supporting actress turn in 2009’s Up in the Air. The film followed a stuttering teenage boy who overcomes his handicap by joining the high school debate team. Blitz won the directing award at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the grand jury prize. Rocket Science also received three Independent Spirit Award noms including best first feature, best first screenplay and best supporting female for Kendrick.
Anna graced the cover of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit Magazine back in February. We have added the digital scans and the photoshoot in our gallery. Be sure to head over to Net-A-Porter.com to read the full cover shoot.
On looking forward to maturing in the industry: “I know that things will be more complicated as an older actress, in ways that I can’t anticipate, but I would really enjoy getting to the point where the reason I’m getting roles or not isn’t based on if somebody thinks I’m hot enough. I feel like I’ve always been a character actress, and this is a blip in my career where I’m playing the ingénue. I’ll be a lot more comfortable and get excited when I’m playing women who aren’t supposed to be pretty.”
On Twitter: “I love seeing what people respond to and think is funny; it’s kind of a puzzle. Trying to express yourself in 140 characters can be this little word game. . . Some people play Candy Crush; I try to perfect my tweets.”
George Clooney on Anna: “There’s everything to like about Anna. She’s wildly talented, smart, and great fun to be around. And she’s going to be around for a long time.”
Anna will make an appearance on Lip Sync Battle, as we previously reported, in a battle against “The Hollars” co-star and director John Krasinski. Spike TV released another trailer which features more footage of Anna’s appearance. Be sure to watch it below!
Prepare for the battle of the century. Hosted by LL Cool J along with Chrissy Teigen, watch as A-list celebrities sync their hearts out in epic performances. Spike presents Lip Sync Battle premiering Thursday, April 2nd.
Anna Kendrick will be the first to tell you she’s not really a musician; she just plays one on the big screen. Her humility belies the mezzo-soprano belt that drove the actress’ cover of “Cups” from Pitch Perfect, the 2012 hit movie about a cappella competitions, to No. 6 on the Hot 100. That success has helped anoint the 29-year-old this generation’s Julie Andrews — the go-to belle for every female musical lead, including in Pitch Perfect 2 (out May 15), The Last 5 Years and Into the Woods (both out now). Off-camera, she’s not far removed from her theatrical persona: the acerbic underdog, constantly downplaying her talents — on the musical side, at least: “It’s so striking that I am an amateur among pros.”
We have added lots of additional high quality images of Anna attending the 87th Annual Academy Awards including of her on stage. Anna looks stunning in a custom Thakoon dress with Brian Atwood shoes and Norman Silverman jewelry.
Anna will make an appearance during Lip Sync Battle, which will premiere on April 2nd on Spike TV. The series is executive produced by John Krasinski (Anna’s “The Hollars” co-star and director), Jimmy Fallon, and Stephen Merchant. It has not yet been announced when Anna’s episode will air.
Lip Sync Battle is already a huge viral sensation. Now Spike is taking it to the next level with its very own show, hosted by LL Cool J and with colorful commentary by social media maven, Chrissy Teigen. Each episode will feature two A-list celebrities like you’ve never seen them before – syncing their hearts out in hysterically epic performances. The mic is off, the battle is on! Lip Sync Battle – Series Premiere Thursday, April 2nd
