A compilation of 10 television spots for “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been added to the video archive, all promoting the film’s August 12 release in the United States. After positive reviews upon its UK release earlier this year, US critics are equally embracing the film. On Rotten Tomatoes, the go-to source for collected reviews, “Florence Foster Jenkins” has received a stunning 92% positive collected reviews. Visit their site for all collected reviews – here’s two snippets from Variety: “An audience picture first and foremost: one wholly sympathetic to its eponymous subject’s delusional drive to delight crowds with or without the requisite artistry,” and from The Hollywood Reporter: “Aiming for the same kind of affectionate comic tone as The King’s Speech, this gentle musical farce from director Stephen Frears hits more than a few flat notes, but still delivers gentle laughs and classy star performances.”

Florence Foster Jenkins didn’t make many recordings, but they had to be heard to be believed: “We heard them at drama school, when I was a student,” said Meryl Streep. “Yeah, it was pretty specifically great!” Streep plays Lady Florence, as she liked to be called, in the new film, “Florence Foster Jenkins,” about the amateur soprano often called the world’s worst opera singer. “Most of her notes,” as one critic put it, “were promissory.” Mason said, “So many of the great singers of her time are not remembered, but she is.” “Well, that’s a tragedy, actually!” Streep laughed. By the late 1930s, Florence’s performances were notorious. Mystifyingly, the society pages indulged her with glowing notices. “Madame Jenkins’ annual recitals,” the New York Daily Mirror wrote, “bring unbounded joy to the faded souls of Park Avenue and the musical elite.” Composer Cole Porter was a fan. And astonishingly, at the peak of her notoriety in 1944, Florence took the stage at Carnegie Hall and performed to a sold-out house. The full segment can be watched in the video archive with screencaptures being added to the photo gallery.

Today, the US theatrical trailer for “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been launched, which is slightly different (and way more showy) than the previous British one. Also, you finally get a glimpse of Florence’s/Meryl’s voice. Be sure to check it out in the video archive. Also, Meryl has been interviewed on the British morning show “Lorraine”. Further, a second featurette on the film, as well as a television spot, have been added. Enjoy.

As you might have noticed, lots of additional pictures from the Academy Awards’ red carpet and show have been added to the image library throughout the day. Also, a video compilation of Meryl’s moments – and you can call her shout-out to Patricia Arquette’s speech a “Meryl moment” have been added to the video archive. Besides the Best Actress in a Supporting Role category, the video also includes the In Memoriam segment which Meryl introduced, and which was played to the haunting theme of “Sophie’s Choice”. Additionally, screencaptures from the ceremony have been added as well. That’s a wrap for this year’s Oscar coverage, so check out the new additions and enjoy the video.

Yesterday, Meryl has attended the 21th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards as a nominee for “Into the Woods”. As predicted, the Best Supporting Actress trophy went to Patricia Arquette. Pictures from the arrivals and the show have been added to the image library. My biggest thanks to Lindsey for contributing most of these. Thanks.

Unfortunately, there’s not much material to add from yesterday’s Golden Globe Awards. Meryl skipped the red carpet, lost the Best Supporting Actress award to Patricia Arquette and, besides some audience action with Margaret Cho, took the stage briefly at the end to present the Best Picture award to “Boyhood”. Pictures have been added to the image library with many thanks to Claudia. Additionally, pictures from Disney’s Pre-Golden Globe Party and more from the AFI Awards and the Graham Norton taping have been posted as well, with many thanks to Lindsey.

Here comes my favorite part of early film promotion – new video clips! A fourth scene, again from the Weston’s dinner table, has been posted by Yahoo Movies. And the Weinstein Company starts launching its official clips with the b-roll (unfortunately just a lot of getting in and out of cars) and Meryl’s interview on the film, her character and working with Julia Roberts, Margo Martindale and Benedict Cumberbatch. Enjoy the new clips. HD captures from the interview and the b-roll have been added to the image library as well.
