The first trailer for Burton & Taylor has been released! Helena looks absolutely fantastic and I simply cannot wait to see this! I am a little curious about the moving mole, though!
Thank you to Tapee for directing us to Danish website DR Culture, which appears to exclusively reveal that Helena will star in Bille August‘s upcoming film 55 Steps. I’m trying to gather more information, but fingers crossed it turns out to be true!
Details are still thin, but in August and September Danish director, Bille August will head to the U.S. city of San Francisco for the filming of his new movie 55 Steps.
The film is totally American – with the exception of Helena Bonham Carter. “The only thing we know is that one of the roles will be played by Helena Bonham Carter – but we are still in the process of casting the rest of the roles,” says Bille August.
If everything goes well in San Francisco this summer, Bille August will be ready with an offer of a Cannes-nomination for the festival in 2014; “If we are filming soon, we could reach Cannes next year,” he said.
The movie will apparently be a true story.
Yet another featurette for Helena’s upcoming film The Lone Ranger has been released and this one focuses more on Helena’s character Red Harrington and her show ‘Hell on Wheels’. Watch the video below!
Came across this stunning photograph and wondered whether it was real (people are so good at photoshop these days!) As far as I can tell, it is real and accompanies a short interview on a Russian website:
Helena briefly appears in a featurette of the making of her upcoming film The Lone Ranger. Kamila has kindly sent us the video and I have added it to our YouTube channel. You can watch Helena as Red Harrington, in all her glory, below!
I stumbled across this purely by chance this morning: Helena features on Nicky Haslam‘s new album, Midnight Matinee which is available for pre-order now on iTunes and will be released 1st July. Helena sings on the track “Last Man Standing”, which is only available when you purchase the album, which is £7.99. Other than that, I can’t find out much about it! A random find!
Thank you very much to Jak for uploading the song to YouTube:
A brand new interview with Helena on the set of her latest film The Lone Ranger has just been released. Helena discusses what attracted her to the part, working with the director Gore Verbinski and delves into more detail and background of her character Red Harrington. Watch below!
Disney have officially announced that Helena will play the role of the Fairy Godmother in Kenneth Branagh‘s live-action version of Cinderella! Helena joins a stellar cast which includes Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother, Lily James as Cindrella, Richard Madden as the Prince and Sophie McShera and Holliday Granger (Magnificent 7, Great Expectations) playing the stepsisters.
Filming is scheduled to begin in London in Autumn; the official release date is yet to be announced although it is expected to be some time next year.
On Tuesday evening Helena attended the unveiling of a new portrait of model Kate Moss at the Selfridges store on Oxford Street, in Central London. She attended the event with her Burton and Taylor co-star, Dominic West. I have added 11 MQ images to the gallery. Enjoy!
This would only happen with Helena Bonham Carter.
The Harry Potter and The King’s Speech actress, 47, saved the day during her cover photo shoot with British Vogue when she pulled a fake moustache out of her purse – one she just happened to be carrying around.
“My favourite image of her is the moustache picture,” said British Vogue fashion director Lucinda Chambers.
“I had brought this hat along and when I put it on her said, ‘I wish I had a moustache to go with it,'” Chambers revealed.
“Then Helena chimed in with: ‘I’ve got a moustache in my bag’ and whipped it out. And I thought, ‘Of course you have a moustache in your bag, you’re Helena Bonham Carter,’ and I loved her for that.”
Chambers said that she has known the actress “forever” and she wanted to convey her intelligence in the shoot. Helena Bonham Carter is on the cover of British Vogue’s “Ageless” July issue.
“She’s done really interesting films – she’s like the female Johnny Depp,” Chambers said. Bonham Carter has appeared with Depp in several films directed by Carter’s partner, director Tim Burton, including Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
“She could be Hollywood, but it’s the film choices she’s made that set her apart. And what I love about her is that she has her own style, she loves what she loves and she’s an incredibly confident woman, but she’s totally up for change,” Chambers continued.
“Most celebrities want to repeat what they’ve honed and are comfortable in, but she’s up for doing anything which is unusual in an actress.”
Bonham Carter was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Chambers noted that she didn’t give Bonham Carter any “character” for any of the pictures, but that the actress became a new character with each change of clothes – including the moustache.
