We would like to remind you that “Aloha” hits theaters nationwide in the U.S. starting today! Rachel co-stars alongside Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Danny McBride, John Krasinski, Alec Baldwin, and Bill Murray. The movie is written and directed by Cameron Crowe. We have added some additional images in our gallery, including some great new production stills. The movie will be released in the U.K. on September 4, 2015 and for more international release dates be sure to head the official facebook account.
MovieFone exclusively released a sneak peek of “Aloha“. They released the first 8 minutes which gives us a nice glimpse of the movie. The video have been added in our video archive and the link can be found below.
The opening 480 seconds of the romantic comedy introduces us to its three main characters — Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper), Allison Ng (Emma Stone), and Tracy Woodside (Rachel McAdams) — and, in true Cameron Crowe fashion, things get off to a bumpy start with the trio.
From the first seven-plus minutes, “Aloha” delivers Crowe’s signature brand of character-driven moviemaking, with an emphasis on quick wit and clever dialogue, harkening back to a time when smart romantic comedies were all the rage in Hollywood. Now, we’re lucky to get one or two rom-coms a year; take stock in that.
“Aloha,” which also stars Danny McBride, John Krasinski, Alec Baldwin, and Bill Murray, hits theaters May 29th.
Only one more day until the release of “Aloha” in the U.S. and the first reviews are finally getting released. While the movie isn’t receiving good reviews so far, most of them do seem to enjoy the performances in the movie and especially Rachel’s performance as Tracy. A round-up of the reviews can be found below, especially those who highlight Rachel’s performance. We will edit this post when more reviews are released.
“Even with its off-balance, overstuffed storytelling, the film maintains a charm and energy that never flags, with brisk pacing and generally engaging performances from its deep-bench cast […] McAdams, meanwhile, plays likely the strongest, most rounded female character Crowe has ever written, a woman suddenly face to face with the life she has and the one she might have had, and the actress brings a grounded, unforced earthiness to the role that is a joy to watch.”

“The Little Prince” had it’s first press screening during the 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival earlier today. Rachel did not attend the press events but the director Mark Osborne, co-star Mackenzie Foy and actors who are voicing the international versions of the movie attended the photocall and press conference. The first reviews are getting released. We will round-up the reviews in this post and update it when more are getting released.
“The Little Prince turns out to be a respectful, lovingly reimagined take on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s classic 1943 tale […] the film remains a consistent visual treat (the computer animation is more inspired in this section, with the grown-ups depicted as a colorless, zombified mass of tall, narrow bodies) and always echoes Saint-Exupery’s core theme of looking at the world through the hopeful, uncorrupted eyes of a child, where sometimes what appears to be a hat may in fact be a boa constrictor with an elephant inside.”

Wild Bunch released the official press kit for “The Little Prince” ahead of it’s 2015 Cannes Film Festival premiere. The movie will have it’s world premiere tomorrow during the festival. The press kit features an in-depth plot description and a detailed description of the production process. It also features quotes by the leading cast, including Rachel. Excerpts can be found below but be sure to head over to our press archive to read the entire press kit.
On Reading The Book: “I read the book when I was in my 20s. A friend gave it to me as a present, and when I read the book it meant a lot to me. I think Saint-Exupéry’s book says different things to you at different stages of your life.”
On Working With Director Mark Osborne: “I was so excited to be part of this movie, and I loved ‘Kung Fu Panda’, so I knew our director Mark (Osborne) was going to do a wonderful job with the adaptation. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to animation.”
On Her Character” “I play the Little Girl’s Mother, who is a working single mom. She has this massive, intricate life plan for her daughter and wants her to follow the rules to a tee. The Mother is a little high-strung, but she means well. She and her daughter are a real team until the Little Girl drifts away.”
On The Movie: “The Little Prince [Movie] does a fantastic job of celebrating life’s mysteries. When we grow up, it’s easy to need an answer for every question. Just like the book, the movie pays attention to the importance of enjoying the journey and our relationships, and not necessarily understanding everything. It all circles back to the famous quote from the book, which is ‘What is essential is invisible to the eye’.”
It’s not yet announced if Rachel will attend tomorrow’s premiere. Director Mark Osborne and co-star Mackenzie Foy confirmed they are heading to the premiere via their official twitter accounts.
