La Femme Nikita (1990, directed by Luc Besson) is a neon action thriller; a very silly, very enjoyable movie concerning an ex-junkie put to work as a French government sleeper assassin. Backed by an industrial electro pop score, sound and visuals converge alongside the protagonist’s cool couture – specifically a little black dress that re-defines the use of such a garment on film.

As of its time as Laserdiscs and virtual reality, La Femme Nikita is about transformation by fashion – similar in subtext to Pretty Woman, that enduringly fluffy romantic fairytale also released the same year. Where as Julia Roberts’ heroine Vivian abandons the world of prostitution to become, we presume, a lawyer’s wife, Nikita (Anne Parillaud) leaves homicidal drug addiction to become arguably something worse: a paid for, »

'New Year's Eve' All-Star Cast: Obnoxious or Awesome?

9 December 2010 10:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

He might have some crappy movies on his resume, like the shockingly bad 'Exit to Eden,' but due to flicks like 'Pretty Woman,' Garry Marshall can always pull in the big names. 'Valentine's Day' ran the gamut of talent earlier this year, from Shirley MacLaine and Kathy Bates to Taylor Swift and Emma Roberts, from Hector Elizondo and George Lopez to Ashton Kutcher and Taylor Lautner.

And now that the cliche parade has made over $100 million domestically and another $100 million internationally, it's time for the next holiday ensemble piece, Marshall's 'New Year's Eve.'

As production gears up to begin any day now, the cast is coming together with some of the 'Valentine's' actors picking up new roles and more big names circling the romantic comedy.

Julia Roberts Smiles And Nods In Italian Coffee Commercial

1 December 2010 12:07 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Actors going abroad to film commercials is far from a new phenomenon. Hell, it was a subplot of Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation and has provided the internet with some of the best viral videos of all time ( Arnold Schwarzenegger and Quentin Tarantino have provided two of my favorites). Now Julia Roberts has apparently gotten into the action. An Italian coffee commercial with the Pretty Woman star has popped online and it will undoubtedly make you smile. Why? Because it appears that Roberts is employing the "smile and nod" method of acting. The commercial sees Roberts posing for a replication of Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" with more clothes. The problem? Julia Roberts isn't smiling! It becomes quite apparent that she has absolutely no idea what the painter is saying, so they brew her an espresso that makes her light up like a Christmas tree! Then the painter and »

Roberts Gushes About Portman's Performance In Black Swan

29 November 2010 5:36 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Julia Roberts has heaped praise on her pal Natalie Portman for her portrayal of a troubled ballet dancer in new drama Black Swan, insisting the Star Wars actress' performance makes her want to "rub her weary feet".

The Pretty Woman star was among the Hollywood stars asked to write a commentary for industry publication Daily Variety on a selection of films tipped for success at next year's Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Roberts had nothing but good things to say about Portman in the Darren Aronofsky movie.

Roberts gushes, "Natalie Portman in the new film by Darren Aronofsky is a ballerina. I cannot think of anything more accurate and complimentary to say about her in this role: She is a ballerina! One is so lost in the aching beauty, the elegant moves and the quiet mania of her pursuits, she, Natalie, ceases to exist.

"It is an intense and at times brutal film to watch. There were times when I was watching through tiny cracks in my quaking fingers. But to see her in this role was worth the one night of tossing and turning...

"A performance like the one she delivers in Black Swan affirms that my professional admiration for her was well placed...

"I am simply beaming with pride for her and want only to have her over to our home to hug her, tell her all the wondrous things we think of her, rub her weary feet and make her the biggest, most delicious dinner she could ever eat!" »

Roberts Lands Heavenly Payday For Lavazza Advert

29 November 2010 2:16 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Julia Roberts has reasserted her Hollywood star status after banking a massive $1.5 million (£1 million) for a 45-second TV advertisement for Italian coffee makers Lavazza.

The Pretty Woman star appears as artist Sandro Botticelli's Venus, the painter's stubborn goddess muse who refuses to reveal her famous smile until she is handed a cup of Lavazza's A Modo Mio coffee.

The heavenly promo, which didn't even require Roberts to speak, will be screened in Italy over the Christmas period.

Roberts isn't the only Hollywood actor to sign up as the face of a top coffee brand - her Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney promotes Nespresso. »

Opting for Hinduism not religious gimmick: Julia Roberts

13 November 2010 10:51 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Nevada (Us), Nov 14 – Oscar-winning Hollywood star Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman), the recent convert to Hinduism, says, “My opting for Hinduism is not a religious gimmick”.

She adds: “It is similar to Patsy of Razor’s Edge by Somerset Maugham. We share a common aspect of finding peace and tranquility of mind in Hinduism, one of the oldest and respected religions of civilization”.

Roberts argues: “No, I have no intention of demeaning any other religion simply because of my fondness for Hinduism. I don’t believe in comparing religions or human beings. A comparison is a very mean thing to do. I have received real spiritual satisfaction through Hinduism.”

Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ashton Kutcher & Hilary Swank to Join Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Eve?

9 November 2010 4:01 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following his hit from earlier this year (Valentine’s Day), Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall is planning on picking out another date from the calendar with New Year’s Eve, and a number of big names are already in negotiations to star.

Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer (who appeared in the director’s 1991 feature Frankie and Johnny), Ashton Kutcher and Hilary Swank are all currently in talks to appear in this romantic ensemble drama about the romantic lives of a group of New Yorkers on celebrating the end of the year.

Valentine’s Day made over $100 million at the Us box office alone, and if this new project can make the same (or better), expect to see all the other variations on this theme for years to come – love stories set around Halloween, Christmas, Easter, and St Patrick’s Day, etc.

Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank And Ashton Kutcher Resolve To Join 'New Year's Eve'

9 November 2010 11:19 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

It's not every day audiences get to see Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Hilary Swank acting opposite Ashton Kutcher, Abigail Breslin and Lea Michele. But that's exactly what's likely to happen in "New Year's Eve." Gary Marshall's thematic follow-up to this year's "Valentine's Day" has plans to blow the previous film's ridiculous number of stars out of the water, and is already well on its way to doing so.

Breslin and Michele have already been announced, but today The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that De Niro, Pfeiffer, Swank and Kutcher are in negotiations for roles as well. And you can toss Hector Elizondo into the mix, too, because Marshall previously told MTV that the "Pretty Woman" actor "has to be in all my movies."

The film will follow an ensemble of New Yorkers dealing with romantic issues on New Year's Eve, much like "Valentine's Day" did with its characters on that film's title holiday. »

Anger has poisoned the midterm elections | Hadley Freeman

3 November 2010 5:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

America will look back on the 2010 elections as the crossover point between CNN and WWE

In my favourite cinematic source of careers advice to young women everywhere, Pretty Woman – a film that warns viewers of the grave danger of working as a prostitute and how one could end up being condescended to by Richard Gere for the rest of eternity – there is one significant if oft-overlooked scene:

"We'll just veg out in front of the TV," suggests Vivian.

"Veg out?" asks Edward.

"Yeah. Be still like vegetables. Lay like broccoli," our etymologically adroit heroine responds.

It is interesting when one finds oneself having to explain a fairly basic human activity or emotion to someone else: one always ends up sounding slightly slow-witted, and the risk of recourse to bad analogies skyrockets like rockets in the sky.

And yet, this seems to be required in regards to anger. Anger is ever so fashionable at the moment. »

Nevada (Us), Nov 3 (Ani): Oscar winner Hollywood star Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman), the recent convert to Hinduism, says ‘Diwali should be celebrated unanimously throughout the world as a gesture of goodwill’.

In her ‘Diwali wishes’, published on the website of India’s leading English daily The Times of India dated November three, Roberts adds that essence of both Christmas and Diwali is the same as both “are festivals of lights, good spirits and death of evil”.

Roberts further points out that Diwali (Hindu festival which falls on November five) “not. »

Awards Season Roundup: “King’s Speech” leads Bifa noms, “127 Hours” prepares to open

1 November 2010 7:24 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: HollywoodNews.com’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.

Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” leads the pack vying for British Independent Film Awards this year, scoring eight nominations including Best Film. The nominations, announced this morning, also include multiple nods for “Four Lions” and “Never Let Me Go.”

Danny Boyle’s tremendous “127 Hours” opens this Friday. CinemaBlend has six minutes of footage ahead of the film’s opening.

The N.Y. Times has a two-minute scene with Boyle commentary.

And the L.A. Times explores the rash of faintings at “127 Hours” screenings.

Jeff Wells manages to give both Rachel McAdams and “Morning Glory” more ink by nitpicking the use of the word “blockbuster” in the N.Y. Times. Not sure what that means about the movie. But I do know »

Your Daily Fix Of Oscar: 11/1/10

New York Times: Leah Rozen profiles Rachel McAdams, who plays a hotshot television producer in the upcoming comedy “Morning Glory,” and floats the possibility that it could be “the breakout hit that will do for her what ‘Pretty Woman’ did for Julia Roberts in 1990.” McAdams, who doesn’t work often, tells Rozen, “I try to pick movies that I want to make, that offer a challenge, but that people want to see. Why do all that work if it’s for naught? If you act and nobody sees it, is it still acting?”

Los Angeles Times: John Horn learns why David Seidler, the screenwriter of “The King’s Speech,” was particularly attracted to the story of King George VI’s fight to overcome his stutter. As a child, “Seidler had been evacuated to the United States before the Blitz. The voyage — in which a convoy ship had been sunk by »
