Rachel was the Honorable Ambassador during last night’s A Night Out With The Millennium Network Toronto hosted by the Clinton Foundation. Rachel introduced former president Bill Clinton to the stage, who spoke for about 30 minutes about his foundation. The Clinton Foundation focusses on addressing the next generation about global challenges like improving Global Health, strengthening Economies and promoting healthier Childhoods. We added the first pictures of Rachel outside the venue greeting fans and photos taken by fans in our gallery but we hope we can add more additions later on.
A video of Rachel greeting her fans outside the venue can be watched at Mr Will’s website.
Events from 2013 > June 4th: A Night Out With The Millennium Network Toronto hosted by Clinton Foundation

The German publisher released a preview of the book in their fall 2013 catalogue, you can find the preview and link below. The book will be released in the U.S. on December 20, 2013, you can already pre-order it on Amazon.com! Thanks to the AMWM Facebook Fanpage for pointing this out!
Anton Corbijn’s new film A Most Wanted Man, a modern-day espionage thriller based on a spy novel by John le Carre, takes a look at the “war on terror,” which plays a decisive and increasingly grim role in the aftermath of September 11th. Set in Hamburg, it stars Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Robin Wright, and Nina Hoss. As was the case in his first two cinematic endeavors (Control and The American), Anton Corbijn has again combined his own documentary photographs of the shooting and comments into a superlative film and photo book in which “fact and fiction” are shown to full advantage against the backdrop of Hamburg’s cityscape.
The cast and crew returned to Hamburg last week for re-shoots for the movie. Director Anton Corbijn also revealed last month to the dutch press that post-production is expected to finish in July of this year and that they are aiming for a fall 2013 release. The movie is still without an U.S. distributor, so no firm release date has been set.
Rachel will be part of the A Night Out With The Millennium Network evening in Toronto next week as ‘Honorable Ambassador’. The event is hosted by The Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton will speak during the event and Tegan and Sara will give a special acoustic performance. The event will take place Tuesday, June 4th in the Berkeley Church in Toronto.
Inspired by President Clinton’s vision to encourage the next generation to address global challenges, the Millennium Network invites future leaders and philanthropists to get involved in the work of the Clinton Foundation — improving global health, strengthening economies, promoting healthier childhoods, and protecting the environment.
You can buy tickets for the event on the official website of the foundation. For more additional information be sure to also check out this page.

A magical new comedy from Richard Curtis in which Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) is able to relive every moment of his life until he gets it right. Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy also star in this delightful film about life’s unexpected twists and turns as the course of true love proves hilariously difficult. (119 mins)
Fun fact: “Mean Girls” will also been shown during the festival a few days later on August 10!
Evening Standard is reporting that “About Time” will premiere during the Film4 Summer Screen Festival at Somerset House in London. The festival is held in August and tickets go on sale these friday. For more information go to the official website of the festival.
After blockbuster hits such as Notting Hill and Love Actually, Richard Curtis’s films took a more serious turn.
But now the master of romantic comedy has returned to his roots with a light-hearted film about time travel.
About Time, starring Bill Nighy, Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson, son of actor Brendan, tells the story of a 21-year-old who discovers he can travel in time and change his life and decides to try to get a girlfriend.
Curtis’s credits also include Black-adder, Mr Bean and The Vicar of Dibley and the screenplay for Bridget Jones’s Diary, but his recent projects, such as The Girl in the Cafe, set against the backdrop of a G8 summit, and Mary and Martha, about preventing malaria, have followed more serious themes.
Producer Tim Bevan today said there has been a gap in the romantic comedy market of the same “pedigree” as Love Actually, Notting Hill and Four Weddings And A Funeral.
Empire Magazine is reporting that footage of “A Most Wanted Man” was shown to industry people yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival. The footage was part of Film4′s Slate 2013 reel presented by Tessa Ross.
Film4’s contribution to British cinema over the past few decades has been virtually unparalleled – and, judging by the slate we saw previewed today here in Cannes, that’s not about to change in a hurry.
At a lunch at Film4′s Cannes HQ (sadly, not a building in the shape of a giant four – they’re slipping up), Film4’s Tessa Ross, who won a Bafta earlier in the year, cued up a showreel that contained brief glimpses at around a dozen forthcoming Film4 titles. The future is bright. Here’s a film-by-film rundown.
A Most Wanted Man
Anton Corbijn’s spy thriller, about a Chechen Muslim who becomes the subject of serious interest from German and US spy agencies when he illegally immigrates to Hamburg, was harder to get a handle on. But it looked as stylish as you might expect, there were brief looks at the key players, including Rachel McAdams, Daniel Brühl and Willem Dafoe, we got to hear Phillip Seymour Hoffman rocking a German accent, and there was a bit of business with someone being bundled into a car. It may be too early to dub this one this year’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, but the signs are there.
The movie is still without an U.S. distributor, but has found distributors in basically every other part of the world at last year’s Cannes market. The movie is again part of the market at Cannes, so let’s hope it will find an U.S. distributor soon!
“Passion” will be released in August of this year in the U.S. The distributor confirmed this to our twitter account. The official facebook account for the movie mentions August 1st VOD release and August 31st theatrical release, but those seem generic dates to me. Let’s hope we will get an official announcement with firm release dates soon!
The movie premiered during the Venice Film Festival last year, followed by a Toronto and New York Film Festival premiere.
St. Thomas Time Journals is reporting that Rachel will be regonized by St. Thomas’ Timken Centre Wall of Fame. Rachel grew up in St. Thomas (Canada) and moved to Toronto to attend York University. Thanks to Tim for the heads up!
A little bit of Tinsel Town is coming to the Timken Centre.
When council meets on Tuesday, members will be asked to approve a recommendation that Rachel McAdams be recognized on the Wall of Fame in the Timken Centre.
The popular actor would be the third recipient to be featured on the wall of achievement, with the unveiling to take place 5:30 p.m. June 13. Although she will not be present, family members will be attending on her behalf.
