Official Plot: Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. From Mark Osborne, Academy Award® nominated director of Kung Fu Panda, comes the first ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her mother (Rachel McAdams) for the very grownup world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kindhearted neighbor, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges). The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne). It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into her own imagination – and into the universe of The Little Prince – begins. And it’s where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it’s human connections that matter most, and that what’s truly essential can only be seen with the heart. Also starring: Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, Bud Cort.
Paramount France released the first French (teaser) trailer for “The Little Prince” (‘Le Petit Prince’) earlier today. Rachel is part of the English voice cast but we decided to share this version with you as well because it gives a good impression of the film. We have added the trailer in our media archive, you can watch it directly below or by heading over to our media site. We think we have spotted Rachel’s character around the 00:04 mark.
French Synopsis (via Google Translator): This is the story of a story. This is the story of a little girl, fearless and curious, who lives in a world of adults. This is the story of an aviator, eccentric and mischievous, who never really grew up. This is the story of the Little Prince that will bring them together in an extraordinary adventure.
Be sure to ‘Like’ the official French Facebook page of the movie and we hope an English trailer will be released soon as well.

The Boston Globe released a very interesting article on the filming of “Spotlight” which also includes essays written by Walter V. Robinson, Michael Rezendes and Sacha Pfeiffer who will be portrayed by Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel. We have added the new on set still in our gallery. Pfeiffer’s essay on working with Rachel has been added in our press archive. “Spotlight” wrapped up filming earlier this month and is expected to be released in 2015.
‘Rachel [McAdams] has asked me how long I kept my fingernails. What size Post-it Notes I preferred.’
By Sacha Pfeiffer | Globe Staff
During dinner at a downtown Boston restaurant, on an evening that was already feeling surreal — Rachel McAdams by my side, offering tastes of her branzino, Mark Ruffalo across from me, telling rip-roaring stories about his bartending days — Rachel leaned over and gestured to my right hand.
“You’re wearing a ring you didn’t mention,” she whispered, with a tinge of surprise. I followed her glance to a small gold band on my pinky finger, a long-ago gift from a dear friend. Rachel was right: Weeks earlier, when she’d asked me what jewelry I wore in 2001, I’d forgotten about that tiny ring. And because she is trying to look, act, and even think like I did 13 years ago to play me in the upcoming “Spotlight” movie, the omission caught her eye.

HBO finally confirmed Rachel joining the “True Detective” season two cast alongside Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, Colin Farrell, & Vince Vaughn yesterday. Be sure to check out our previous post in case you missed it. It’s such an anticipated project after the critical and commercial success of the first season so there have been many reports about the second season. We already made a casting update news round-up a few days ago but now that Rachel is confirmed we also wanted to round up reports with – possible – details about season 2. Keep in mind that the reports might contain spoilers about the plot.
HBO’s official logline for the second season is: Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. The three police officers will be played by Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, and Rachel as Ani Bezzerides. Vince Vaughn will play the criminal Frank Semyon. Deadline reported back in August that season 2 “will kick off with a murder, and it might involve corruption in the California transportation system, possibly linked to a proposed high-speed train”. They also reported that the second season is expected to have 4 leads, three of them said to be cops/detectives/government workers and one the villain.
