In this week’s Scan Sunday, we’re still stuck in the “Summer of Streep” – that great time in 2006 when both “A Prairie Home Companion” and “The Devil Wears Prada” were released, while Meryl was simutlaneously starring in the Shakespeare in the Park production of “Mother Courage”. We’re also covering the equally busy (but less successful) 2007 with the releases of “Evening”, “Rendition” and “Lions for Lambs”. Enjoy reading.

In the first official look at the Netflix comedy Don’t Look Up, starring DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, the teaser trailer centers its story around DiCaprio’s character having a panic attack ahead of an Oval Office meeting after uncovering an Armageddon-like revelation.

Don’t Look Up tells the story of two low-level astronomers, played by DiCaprio and Lawrence, who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet earth. The star-studded movie is written and directed by Adam McKay, the filmmaker behind the Oscar-nominated movies Vice and The Big Short. Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi), Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis and Tomer Sisley round out the cast. The teaser trailer only runs for one minute and 18 seconds, but prompts several chuckles as Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio) set an infuriating White House meeting with a room of indifferent government officials, including those played by Hill and Meryl Streep, to explain their dire discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. Don’t Look Up hits select theaters Dec. 10 and releases on Netflix on Dec. 24. With the release of the trailer, three brand new production stills featuring Meryl have been published as well.

This week’s Scan Sunday covers Meryl Streep’s comedy years from 1989 to 1993, reviewing “She-Devil”, “Postcards from the Edge”, “Defending Your Life” and “Death Becomes Her”. Lots of articles and reviews from international magazines have been added to the photo gallery. Among the highlights is a brief mention in 1993’s Veronica magazine from the Netherlands of a big television interview to promote “Death Becomes Her”, which I have never heard of. I don’t know if it was filmed exclusively in the Netherlands, or during the UK oder French promotion for the film, so if you’re from the Netherlands and know more about this interview, please let me know. Enjoy reading and have a great Sunday.

Over the last couple of weeks, my friend and frequent site contributor Alvaro has shared yet another treasure trove of old articles with interviews and reviews, ranging from 1976 to 2021. As I didn’t want to make just one update and send them out in one big chunk, I rediscovered a nice alternative I used a couple of years ago – the Scan Sunday. From this week on, every Sunday will feature a scan update with a slice from these new scanned articles. This will keep us entertained for a couple of months :-) We start today with scans from 1976 to 1983, covering her early theatre work in New York to reviews for her formative years with “Kramer vs. Kramer”, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” and econcluding somewhere between “Sophie’s Choice” and “Still of the Night”. For a complete list of updates, have a look at the list below. Enjoy reading.

Whenever I plan to post “a couple of old pictures” and go through my files to see if there’s something else, I come up with a couple dozen of pictures that have never made it to the archives before. I have no idea where they were all hiding, but I’m glad to share those new additions with you. Updates go back as early as 1980 with appearances at the Academy Awards Luncheon for “Kramer vs. Kramer” and the Obie Awards, a bunch of press conferences throughout the 1980s for “Silkwood” and “A Cry in the Dark” and some lesser-publicised appearances in the late 1990s, including the Telluride and Toronto Film festivals. For a complete list of updates, have a look at the previews below. Enjoy the pictures and have a nice weekend everybody.
