We have a new video thanks to Paolo. It’s a very tiny TV footage announcing the Effetto Bertolucci at the Festival Futuro Presente earlier this month. They didn’t show any footage from the festival itself, but they did show footage of the 3 dreamers and Bertolucci at the Venice Film Festival in 2003.
I’ve also added more HQs from the “Golden Compass” party in Cannes. Many of them were donated by Holli. Thank you!
First of all, thanks to Anouk for sending in 4 new Serafina stills.
Last but not least, we have a brand new video thanks to the awesome Isabelle. It’s a French interview (that also contains on-set footage) in which Eva talks about “The Golden Compass” and her international career. She said that unfortunately she didn’t find any new French roles that she liked so far. She also said that she had to rehearse a lot, suspended on the air, very high, and that it was a problem because she’s very scared of heights but that she lands very well now.
Screen captures from it can be found in the gallery.
Two new Golden Compass stills were released this week. Thanks to Olga, Tara and Holli for sending them in.
Daniel Craig is set to star in The Golden Compass, a film that is hoping to rival Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia.
It’s a big budget adaptation of the His Dark Materials trilogy by British author Philip Pullman. Directed by US film-maker Chris Weitz, the £90 million movie also stars Nicole Kidman and Eva Green among others.
E! News showed a very short footage from the Cannes press conference tonight. Not only it was extremely short, but the main focus was Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman’s absence. That’s why I won’t be adding it to the Video Archives. I recorded and encoded the video and sent it to the ladies of Dedicated to Daniel. You can download it here.
Here’s a screencap in which Eva can be seen:
I’ve also updated the Filmography page with more info on “The Golden Compass”.
Yet another event for our girl! She went to the Golden Compass party tonight.
Eva is wearing a Dior gown.
I translated from French an excerpt of an interview with Marlène Jobert in which she talks about her twins, Eva and Joy.

The teaser trailer for “The Golden Compass” is now available at Yahoo Movies. Eva looks amazing as a flying witch!
Captures can be found in the gallery:
The teaser trailer is now available for download in the Video Archives. Make sure that you have all the most recent DIVX codecs installed in order to play it.
New Line Cinema has set the release schedule for its epic $150m adventure movie The Golden Compass, almost exactly duplicating the rollout of The Fellowship Of The Ring in 2001.
The film is having a major promotional launch today, just as Fellowship did at Cannes 2001, with a press conference and photo call as well as a screening of 20 minutes of footage.
Director Chris Weitz and stars including Daniel Craig, Eva Green and Dakota Blue Richards are all here, although Nicole Kidman is shooting in Australia.
The world premiere will take place in London on Nov 26 followed by the first territorial openings in France and Spain on Wed Dec 5 and in Germany and Holland on Thursday Dec 6.
The rest of the world, including North America, opens on Dec 7, except Italy which goes one week later on Dec 14 and Australia on Dec 26. Japan will open three months later on March 1. Those openings were the same for Fellowship.

Just as it did with its Tolkien tale, the studio offers just a peek at “Golden Compass.’
By John Horn, Times Staff Writer
May 21, 2007
CANNES, France — There’s no denying that Hollywood worships sequels. New Line Cinema has taken the love affair one step further: It’s cloning not a movie, but a movie launch.
For the second time in six years, the studio has come to the Cannes Film Festival with a few minutes of an unfinished film in tow. It’s to prove, yet again, that New Line not only hasn’t trampled a beloved piece of fantasy literature, but also has turned out an impressive epic. The drill turned out beautifully with 2001′s sneak peek at “Lord of the Rings” footage. But can lightning strike twice with “The Golden Compass”?
In the works for six years, “Compass ” represents what New Line — and writer-director Chris Weitz — hopes will be the first installment in another trilogy of ambitious blockbusters. Like “The Lord of the Rings,” which had a tortuous path to the screen, the first movie adapted from Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” books did not coalesce easily. And as was true with New Line’s choice of Peter Jackson to adapt J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Golden Compass” represents a steep wager on a counterintuitive filmmaking choice.
Weitz is moving from alternately crude and clever comedies (“American Pie,” “About a Boy”) to an epic, effects-laden children’s adventure, set to open Dec. 7.

Get Vesper’s style!

Wong Kar Wai: Advertising director
An interesting concept, since he’s best known for a meandering creative vision that includes a free-form shooting style and the lack of scripted scenarios.
But Wong can do corporate, evident by his growing portfolio of advertisements.
His most recent project was with Christian Dior’s John Galliano for a new Dior spot starring Eva Green.
I haven’t seen the spot yet and I don’t think it’s out already, but if anyone finds it online, please be sure to send in a link.
