The official site for the film is now online at thegreatgatsbymovie.com and a new still and official poster have also been released. HD screen captures of Carey from the trailer are up in the gallery, thanks to Lindsey!
We had a bit of a problem with the old Video Archive, so I have just finished creating a new one which looks slightly nicer than the original did! I have re-added all the old videos, and have started added some new clips. First up is Shame – due to the content/language, there are only two short clips, but one of them is the full 5-minute rendition of Carey singing New York, New York. More on the way, so stay tuned!
In the last year, Carey Mulligan appeared in two much-admired movies, “Drive” and “Shame,” and gave an acclaimed performance in “Through a Glass Darkly,” a stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film. But before that run, she hadn’t worked for nearly a year, disatisfied with the scripts she was receiving. “Everything seemed exactly the same as stuff I’d been doing,” she told the Bagger recently.
Since her breakout turn in “An Education” in 2009, Ms. Mulligan has played a lot of characters who have a sense of desperation – if not despair — and Sissy in “Shame,” directed by Steve McQueen, certainly fit the bill. But Ms. Mulligan saw another side of her.
“She’s hopeful,” Ms. Mulligan said. “She sort of reminded me of me in that respect. She keeps on getting knocked back and she keeps trying. She never sees that her life is limited, she doesn’t know that she’s not talented enough to be a singer, or to be an actress. That’s how they rang similar to me, that’s probably why I was so drawn to thing.”
She laughed. That striving, she said, “bears repeating in all of my work.”
Here, Ms. Mulligan talks to our colleague Charles McGrath about “Shame,” acting in theater vs. film and her attraction to characters on the verge of madness.
Last night, Fox Searchlight released a Red Band trailer for Shame. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature Carey at all, but it does give another insight to the film. Enjoy!
A gorgeous new trailer for Shame has just been released, and whilst watching it you can hear Carey sing ‘New York, New York’ as her character Sissy does in the film.
At the moment it is only available to view via the Apple Trailers site, so click the image below to get taken to the video. I will add it to the archive as soon as I can download it. The trailer has now been added to the Video Archive – Enjoy!
Carey Mulligan is on the cover of the November 18 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, as they kick off Oscar season with their annual roundtable series. In the first, Carey is joined by Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Glenn Close as they discuss their regrets, the mean things people say to them and why Davis hates it when a black actress’ performance is called “dignified.”
I have added the magazine cover to the gallery, and will try and get hold of scans as soon as I can. Check out a cute snippet from the interview below:
