The ASC released a brand new “To The Wonder” movie clip and official on set pictures featuring Rachel attached to their interview with director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki. The clip can be watched in our media archive, and we added the photos in our gallery.
The interview with Lubezki is also worth the read, because he gives some interesting insights into the working process of writer/director Terrence Malick and it it might help you understand the movie better. You can find some excerpts below, but you can find the full interview over here.
“Terry didn’t say this, but I felt that he was trying to separate To the Wonder from all the moviemaking that’s still connected to theater — from movies that feel acted, prepared and rehearsed. We were trying to find a more cinematographic approach to filmmaking and a way of using film language that was less connected to theater and literature and other art forms. Terry wants this art form to have its own way of expressing ideas and emotions, and that’s what was very exciting about the movie.”
“It’s a combination of 35mm, which was used for the scenes between Ben and Olga in Oklahoma, and 65mm for several shots of Ben and Rachel McAdams. That relationship is perceived by Ben’s character as less romantic and more stable and realistic, and we felt that the 65mm expressed that stability and a kind of hyper-reality.”
“To The Wonder” was released in selected theaters and on VOD this weekend in the US. Deadline is reporting that it’s the second best new opening average at the special box office after “Disconnect”.

12 April 2013 To The Wonder Comments Off on “To The Wonder” US Reviews Round-Up
We already made a round-up of the reviews for “To The Wonder” after the Venice Film Festival and UK release but since the movie is opening in the US today we thought it would be nice to make a round-up with US reviews as well.
The movie is getting mixed reviews from the US critics, but if Rachel’s performance is mentioned then her performance is generally praised.
“Kurylenko and McAdams are luminous as they bask in the glow of love when it is warm, and full of angst when it goes cold. And young Tatiana Chiline is just a delight. The camera loves the women, lingering, perhaps a little too long as they spin and dance through open fields of grains and grasses and flowers.”
-Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
We added a lot more additions of Rachel during the premiere night of “To The Wonder” in West Hollywood. She looked stunning in a black Maria Lucia Hohan dress, Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Neil Lane jewelry. Many thanks to my friend Nicole from Adoring Emilia Clark, Jenna-Louise Colema Online and Clint-Barton.com for donating the high quality photos to us.
Fun fact: Rachel was photographed during the after party with her “Red Eye” director Wes Craven.
