An international trailer for “The Homesman” has been released today and we get to see a glimpse (it’s really not much more) of Meryl as Altha Carter. The french subtitles might hint a premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, although no official announcements have been made yet. For some strange reasons, IMDb lists a theatrical release for France for May 21, which would be odd – considering that the US release is stated for October 2014. Let’s see if this gets confirmed. Adapted by Jones himself from Glendon Swarthout‘s novel, the story follows him as a down-and-out man who gets recruited to take three women on an odyssey from Nebraska to Iowa. Alongside Tommy Lee Jones, “The Homesman” features a top-notch cast in Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, Meryl Streep, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto and Jesse Plemons, among others.

Three new clips have been added to the video archive. The first is a short but funny deleted scene from “August: Osage County”, which has just been released on DVD and Blu-Ray, and features Meryl, Margo Martindale and Julianne Nicholson. Then, there’s a public service announcement that Meryl did for the American Red Cross in 1987, raising awareness against false rumors about AIDS. The third clip features Meryl at the 1983 Cesar Awards, presenting the Best Actress trophy to Nathalie Baye. Thanks to everybody for the heads-up. Enjoy the new clips.

TWC has debuted a new featurette for the upcoming adaptation of Lois Lowry’s The Giver, being directed by Phillip Noyce. Back when the trailer released, the main complaint was that it was all footage in color. In this featurette, the author herself, Lois Lowry, and the filmmakers address the issue head on by asking “what if?” in a cinematic context and answering: yes, there will be a few scenes in black & white. Meryl isn’t featured in this featurette, but I’m sure there’s more to come.

Yesterday, Meryl has (finally) been a guest at the UMass Lowell’s Chancellor’s Speaker Series. Her appearance was originally planned for February 05, but got postponed. She answered questions, reflected on her storied career, offered advice for breaking into films, posed for countless photos, pulled an April Fools’ prank before a crowd of 3,600 and raised more than $230,000 for scholarships. Pictures from the event have been added to the image library. Scroll down for more information and a video. Edit: Pictures from the Q&A, which took place before the evening’s conversation, have been added as well.


Streep held court before a capacity crowd at the Tsongas Center in an event billed as “A Conversation with Meryl Streep” that was moderated by Assoc. Prof. Andre Dubus III. Earlier in the day, she held an hourlong question-and-answer session with 100 English and Theater Arts students at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center, touching on subjects from how she prepares for roles to how she got her start as an actress. By turns witty, thoughtful and quick, she held her audience rapt as she discussed her career. Dubus, a New York Times bestselling author, wanted to know how she is able to disappear into her roles. “Acting is a very mysterious craft,” Streep said. “The (actors) I admire, I have no idea how they achieve what they do. When you are working with them there’s a seamless exchange of thought, emotion and physicality. You can’t parse it when you are in the moment.” UMass Lowell has posted a video with highlights from the conversation, which can be watched in the video archive.

Today, the Weinstein Company has released a first theatrical trailer for “The Giver”. Lois Lowry’s classic story — one of the first modern dystopic tales written explicitly for a younger audience — takes place in a future where all of the unpleasant, messy aspects of life (war, pain, difference, feelings in general) have been wiped away. Have a look at the trailer in the video archive and captures in the image library. Are you excited? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Here’s the final update on last Sunday’s Academy Awards with lots of additional pictures from the show being added. Many thanks to Lindsey for her contribution and to Joan for the screencaptures. It looks like Meryl didn’t do any interviews at the red carpet, at least I couldn’t find any (if you found some, let me know). But there’s enough to look at anyway. A video clip, featuring all essential Meryl have been added, including her “dance segement” with Pharrell Williams, the epic selfie that broke Twitter, Ellen’s pizza delivery, and, of course, the Best Actress segment. You can watch the video by clicking above. And to revive all pictures from the show, have a look at the full list below. Enjoy.

Last night on his post-Oscars show, Jimmy Kimmel premiered what fans have been looking for all awards season: parody movie trailers based on classic viral videos. Among them is “Bitman Begins”, “based” on “Charlie Bit My Finger, and starring Chris and Liam Hemsworth as well as Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks! Short but funny, especially Streep’s “subtle” dialogue. Don’t miss the other videos as well, “Ameowadeus“, featuring Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman and Ben Kingsley, “Sweet Brown: Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That“, featuring Queen Latifah and Barkhad Abdi, and “David After Dentist Double Rainbow Oh My God!“, featuring Joseph Gordn-Levitt and Samuel L. Jackson. “Bitman Begins” can be found in the video archive, alongside captures and production stills in the image library.

Many thanks to Beatrice for bringing this to my attention: During her visit in France to promote “August: Osage County”, Meryl Streep attended the French television show 20h Week-End to talk about the film and the Oscars. It’s a pretty bumpy interview, maybe because of its editing and the translation – and I still don’t understand the lenghty Maria Callas clip. But see for yourself. The full interview can be watched in the video archive. Captures have been added to the image library.
