The promotion for Ricki and the Flash is slowly starting (it’s about time for the film’s theatrical release in less than three weeks) with a trio of television spots being released. They feature pretty much of what we have seen before. As many have been asking, there has been no date set for a New York premiere yet, but I will keep you posted. You can watch the tv spots as a compilation in the video archive.

Today is Emmeline Pankhurst Day in the U.K. Each year, this day pays tribute to the fight for women’s suffrage (the right to vote) and equal rights for women led by activist Emmeline Pankhurst. Beginning in the early 20th century, the tireless work from Mrs. Pankhurst and the thousands of women she rallied as suffragettes had a ripple effect that reached across the globe, helping to eventually gain women equality in numerous other countries, including the U.S. In celebration of Emmeline Pankhurst Day, the official Suffragette advance one-sheet poster art of Ms. Streep, Ms. Mulligan, and Ms. Bonham Carter is being debuted. We are pleased to share this sneak peek with our readers as they remember Emmeline Pankhurst and everything she stood for. Only this talented of a cast could bring forth such a powerful drama about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain.

Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant were pictured together by the Liverpool Echo for the first time since they arrived in Liverpool to shoot their latest movie. As seen in their on-set pictures, Liverpool looks incredible as it doubles up as America for the much-anticipated film. Streep plays the New York heiress and socialite Florence Foster Jenkins, who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming an opera singer, despite a terrible singing voice. Grant takes on the role of her supportive partner and manager St. Clair Bayfield, who was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth.

Just a couple of days after the trailers for “Suffragette”, yet another new look at one of Meryl’s upcoming films have been released. Sony has launched the UK trailer for “Ricki and the Flash”, featuring quite a few new scenes from the Jonathan Demme directed comedy, in which Kevin Kline and Mamie Gummer co-star. Additionally, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

Edit: The US theatrical trailer has been launched as well and can be watched here. The full theatrical trailer for “Suffragette” has been released yesterday, and it gives us a powerful look at the film and Carey Mulligan in what seems to be an outstanding performance! There’s plenty of Meryl as well, but since her role has been labeled as a cameo, let’s hope there’s more than these bits. Head over to the video archive for the trailer. Many thanks to everybody for the heads-up. Also, according to Variety, “Suffragette” will open this year’s London Film Festival. Mulligan, Streep and Helena Bonham Carter will be on the red carpet on Oct. 7 at the Odeon Leicester Square for the film’s European premiere, as well as other members of the cast, who include Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff and Ben Whishaw.

Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, the first still from the upcoming “Florence Foster Jenkins” shows Meryl Streep as the notedly awful warbler cuddling up to Hugh Grant (playing her husband and manager, St. Clair Bayfield) in the back of a car and both dressed in their finest. Streep clutches a brochure for Carnegie Hall, where Jenkins famously sang to a sold out crowd in 1944 having become a huge draw for countless “fans” who appreciated her appalling sense of rhythm and pitch. The film also stars Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda.

The Criterion Collection will be releasing “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” among its selected titles on August 11, 2015. This wouldn’t be big news (except maybe to aknowledge that this is the first Streep film to be released from the Criterion Collection after “Fantastic Mr. Fox”), if it wasn’t for the special features that this new edition will include. Besides the trailer, there will be interviews with actors Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep, editor John Bloom, and composer Carl Davis as well as the 1981 episode of “The South Bank Show” featuring director Karel Reisz, novelist John Fowles, and screenwriter Harold Pinter (and, as much as I’m concerned, a vintage interview with Meryl as well). For more information, visit The Criterion Collection. Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.

Pathé announced in a press release that principal photography started today on “Florence Foster Jenkins”. The film will shoot for 10 weeks in the UK. The film will be directed by Stephen Frears from a screenplay by Nicholas Martin. The cast is led by Meryl Streep as Florence with Hugh Grant playing her partner St Clair Bayfield. Other roles are played by Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda. “Florence Foster Jenkins” is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great opera singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St Clair Bayfield, an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge. Stephen Frears said “I think the script is terrific. God knows the cast are sensational. Now is the time to panic!” Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.
