Meryl Streep was a surprise guest at yesterday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Together with Tyler Perry and Cate Blanchett, she presented the ensemble nomination for “Don’t Look Up” (the price later went to the cast of “CODA”). A video of their segment and a great batch of pictures from the ceremony have been added to the photo gallery.
With not much happening Streep-wise, I’ve went through the archives and have added a couple of unseen pictures to the photo gallery, including additions from the French premieres for “Kramer vs. Kramer”, “Sophie’s Choice” and “A Cry in the Dark” at the Cannes Film Festival, some lovely new promotional stills from “Still of the Night” as well as stills and deleted scenes from “Death Becomes Her”. Check the list below for all updates. Enjoy your weekend.

Even a month after its Netflix release, “Don’t Look Up” is still sparking a conversation about its impact on how we view the change of climate and our world. Earlier today, Meryl Streep and Adam McKay were guests on CNN’s “Amapour” to talk about these topics and the film’s final scene. You can watch the complete interview over at CNN’s website. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
While the film continues to divide audiences and critics, “Don’t Look Up” continues to climb the Netflix charts, this week officially becoming the streamer’s second most successful movie of all time. The film added 58.2 million hours viewed globally across the week January 2-9. That takes it to 321,520,000 total viewing hours since it debuted online December 24, meaning it has overtaken Bird Box (282,020,000 hours) as the second most popular pic on Netflix. The metrics are calculated by hours watched in a title’s first 28 days on the platform, when the vast majority of viewing hours are recorded. And Netflix continues to keep our interest in the film with much promotional material, such as additional featurettes and interviews being added in the last couple of days. Below you will find an overview of what has been added to the site, including a new lengthy video conversation with the cast which was conducted by Netflix in November. I’ve also added more articles and reviews with many thanks to my friend Alvaro. Enjoy the new additions.

Ok, one more update for this year :-) Screencaptures from “Don’t Look Up” have been added to the photo gallery. Adam McKay’s film is out on Netflix since Christmas – it’s outrageously entertaining and not funny at the same time, because if a comet was ever to hit the Earth, this is how it would play out. Nothing feels out of place, and yet everything is quite unbelievable. A smart film which should be seen as a metaphor on climate change and can be seen as a metaphor on our ongoing pandemic, and it features great performances from everybody involved, some over the top, some very real in their depair. So if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to watch “Don’t Look Up”.

This will be my last update for this year, so I’d like to thank all visitors and friends to the site for yet another year of updating Meryl Streep’s career – this year was special, not only due to our second round with COVID, but since there were 11 months of nothing and then one month of jam-packed promotion for “Don’t Look Up” (which will be released on Netflix Christmas Day, as we all know :-) As a present for the Holidays I have re-capped 8 of Meryl’s films in glorious Blu-Ray quality, replacing the previously added DVD screencaptures. There are some great finds with the Blu-Ray premieres for “The Seduction of Joe Tynan” and “Still of the Night” – and many of your fan favorites, including “Mamma Mia”, “It’s Complicated”, “Hope Springs” and “Into the Woods”. Enjoy the screncaptures – and have a blessed time over the Holidays with your loved ones, much health and all the best for 2022. It can only get better :-) See you next year.

We’re in for a special treat today, as Entertainment Weekly reveals a new cover featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep, a lengthy interview with the cast of the crew as well as a half-hour table interview – all to be found on their website: In a 36th floor meeting room at New York’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel in early December, writer-director Adam McKay is telling lies about Meryl Streep to Leonardo DiCaprio ahead of a star-studded Around the Table panel for his just-released movie Don’t Look Up. “The crazy thing is that she does DJ sets at the ESPN Zone in Times Square three nights a week,” says the Big Short filmmaker to an amused DiCaprio, who is sitting between McKay and his pregnant Don’t Look Up costar Jennifer Lawrence. “What I respect is that she still uses decks,” adds Jonah Hill, joining in the improvisational fun. “She’s digging in the crates. She mashed-up AC/DC and Ludacris!” Streep herself is also present and breaks off chatting with Tyler Perry (hey, we told you this panel was star-studded!) to tongue-in-cheekedly growl her response to this entertaining nonsense. “I know a lot more about DJ-ing than you people think!” says the triple Oscar-winner. The ease with which these panelists riff with each other is a holdover from the making of the film, which McKay directed with his usual improv-encouraging style, and the bonds they formed during its production in the pre-vaccine pandemic. As McKay says, “This was a movie like no other movie I’ve ever been involved in. I actually get moved about how we all rallied together.”
STREEP: I found it really hard. I didn’t feel funny in the lockdown. When I would come in to shoot my stuff, [I’d] get out of the car and hadn’t spoken to anybody in three weeks. [I’d] walk into the stadium in Worcester, put on the wig and the nails and the suit, and make a speech to all these people. I just lost it. I forgot how to act, I forgot what I was about. It sort of dismantles your humanity, to be isolated like that. But thank god for Jonah, because he kept us laughing [Streep is informed by EW’s audio engineer that her microphone has fallen off dress]
HILL: Dude, you interrupted the part where she was saying I was sick! What the f—?
MCKAY: Alright, Meryl, pick it up from saying, “Jonah was a joy who brought us all together.”
STREEP: Jonah was a f—ing nightmare and ruined everything of mine and if I work again, it’s a miracle.
Lots and lots of updates today as the promotional tour for “Don’t Look Up” has been in full swing. On Monday, there were two additional press conferences / Q&As in New York, hosted by the Critics Choice and the Paris Theatre. Apparently, there was a third Q&A on Sunday, but I haven’t figured out where this took place (if you know more, drop me a line :-) On Tuesday, Meryl and Jonah Hill were guests on The Today Show. Netflix has released a big batch of character posters for the film. Additionally, more pictures from the New York premiere as well as from Broadway’s re-opening of “Slave Play” have been added to the photo gallery.
Moving on to the videos, new interviews from the premiere, with Entertainment Tonight have been added. Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl participated in a virtual press junket for the film, with a first clip being posted and hopefully many more to follow. Then, videos from the mentioned press conferences and from the Today Show appearance have been added as well. All updates are listed below. Enjoy all the new clips and pictures.
