The first trailer for Rachel’s upcoming movie “Spotlight” just got released on Apple’s Itunes. The movie will have it’s world premiere during the Venice Film Festival and will also screen as international premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival. Rachel stars alongside Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, and John Slattery. We have added the trailer in our video archive and the high definition screencaptures can be found in our gallery.
In 2001, the Boston Globe began an investigation that would rock the city and shock the world. SPOTLIGHT tells the story of that investigation, the story of Marty Baron (Schreiber), Ben Bradlee Jr. (Slattery) and the four members of the Globe’s investigative Spotlight team – Walter Robinson (Keaton), Mike Rezendes (Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (McAdams) and Matt Carroll (James) – who would sacrifice everything to expose the Boston Archdiocese’s systemic cover up of sexual abuse of children by ordained priests. For years, whispers of scandal were ignored by society, the media, by police and by the legal system. Silenced by shame, victims of sexual abuse often became victims of suicide. For their commitment to truth, the Spotlight team received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
The movie will hit theaters on November 6. It will expand on November 13 and go wide on November 20. Be sure to also follow the official social media accounts: Twitter @SpotlightMovie, Instagram @SpotlightMovie and Facebook.com/SpotlightMovie account.
While trying to keep up with all the promotion for “Southpaw” these past few weeks we got a little behind on other updates. We spend the past few days trying to catch up now that the promotion for the movie wrapped up since it’s theatrical release in the U.S. First up is our press interview round-up: Our press archives have been updated with all the latest interviews Rachel did over the past few weeks to promote “Southpaw” and she also frequently talked about “True Detective” and her other upcoming movie “Spotlight“. We added the magazine related scans in our gallery and also added a bunch of clippings which mostly feature reviews.
On playing grittier roles: “I’ve always been interested in doing that [playing grittier parts]. I don’t really want to repeat myself. For the most part, I always want to be doing something new. But there aren’t a lot of gritty roles out there for women, and they are so fun to play everyone wants them. It’s not that I didn’t want to do them. It’s just competitive!” (Times)
On meeting Jared Leto: “I met Jared Leto the other night and didn’t recognize him. I met him very randomly at a U2 concert, and he has green hair for [Suicide Squad], and I was such a loser and didn’t know who it was, and then later I was like, ‘Oh my God, if my 14-year-old self was standing right there shaking Jordan Catalano’s hand, I would have…’ I was already being super uncool, but I would have been a puddle on the ground!” (Glamour)
On using boxing to prepare: ” I did get to do boxing to prep, which was amazing. It was such a great workout. I actually carried it over into True Detective. I thought it would be a good mode of exercise for that character too.” (Yahoo! Style)
Stay tuned! We are working on more updates so be sure to come back later.
Amy Kaufman from the Los Angeles Times sat down with Rachel to promote “Southpaw” and “True Detective“. The interview also features quotes from her co-stars Colin Farrel & Jake Gyllenhaal and “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy. We have added the first photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the full interview in our press archive. Excerpts can be found below.
On her imagined career: “But it [becoming a movie star] wasn’t something I really meditated on or planned for in any way. I really thought I’d be doing theater in Canada. I’d grown up doing children’s theater there, and I always imagined myself being artistic director of a children’s theater company.”
On being ‘picky’ with roles: “If I’m picky, it’s for that reason. I want to be able to bring my best to the table. So if I’m not connecting to something, then I’m not gonna hold up my end of the bargain, and that’s really embarrassing.”
On Marvel’s Doctor Strange Rumors: “It’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all.”
