The first official poster for “Midnight in Paris” was just debuted by Yahoo Movies, unfortunately Rachel is not featured but it’s a still of Owen Wilson walking through the streets of Paris in combination of Vincent van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” (Sterrennacht). The poster looks promising! The full poster can be viewed in our gallery. We recently added a short on set video of Rachel and her co-stars in our media archive. Head over to our media archive, and watch the video.
The movie is officially selected as Opening film of Cannes Film Festival 2011 on May 11th and will get a limited New York/Los Angeles release May 20th. Mimi Kennedy recently revealed more information on the plot in an interview. Let’s hope Sony Classics will release the official (teaser) trailer and website soon.

Just came across an interview with Rachel for KBS2, which is a South-Korean television station, while promotion “Morning Glory” during the London press day. It’s a really nice interview, Rachel even tries to speak a little bit Korean. According to the host Rachel has a lot of fans in South-Korea, and she is known as the ‘nice Rachel McAdams‘ because of a set of candids from 2006 were Rachel is giving direction to a Korean couple while waiting for the bus.

Mimi Kennedy recently gave an interview with A Distinctive Style to talk about her work including “Midnight in Paris” and she gave us some new details about the movie itself.
This is what the interview reveals: Rachel plays the daughter of Mimi Kennedy’s character Helen and Kurt Fuller’s character. She is engaged to Owen Wilson’s character and he is a screenwriter. Rachel’s family is rich and they come from Manhattan (New York) and their story line takes place in the present. Owen Wilson’s character is the main character of this movie and he wants to be a novelist and enters the Parisian past while wondering through Paris by night. He meets the characters of Alison Pill and Marion Cotillard. By day he is back in the present. Wilson’s character is slightly based on Woody Allen himself.
From the earlier released plot line the relationship between Wilson’s character and Rachel’s is important. They are “forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better“. You can read the full interview after the jump, be sure you do it’s worth the read and Mimi Kennedy also praises Rachel and her work. “Midnight in Paris” is set to open the film festival of Cannes 2011 on May 11th and will get a limited release in the US May 20th.
Update: “Midnight in Paris” now has an official facebook account. Be sure to “Like” the account.
Rachel was seen earlier this week taking off from LAX, we assumed to Toronto but she was seen back in Oklahoma to film scenes for the Untitled Terrence Malick Project. According to the IMDB board it’s for re-shoots and Mr. Malick is aiming for a Cannes 2012 premiere but you never know since he is always really secretive about his projects.
She was seen on multiple locations including filming in a OLC Global corporate headquarters. We added a fan photo of Rachel in Oklahoma and we also added a new fan photo taking while Rachel was visiting Ave Q.
Update: We are having some troubles with our gallery; it’s now solved but we have now a temporary version for our gallery. If I have the time I will make a new layout for it.

This is a reminder for the DVD/Blu-Ray release of “Morning Glory“. You can own it own it yourself as of today if you live in the US. We highly recommend this movie, since it’s truly Rachel’s movie; she carries the movie and just plays the character so bubbly and fun. The DVD/Blu-ray also contains a deleted scene and commentary of the director and writer.

The official website for “Midnight in Paris” is -somewhat- online. It’s not the full version, but a temporary version with the already released production still of Rachel with co-star Owen Wilson. We can probably expect the release of the full site and trailer within a few weeks. You can visit the official site over here.
Also the official site says: New York and Los Angeles May 20. We think the release day for the US, not sure it’s going to be a wide release date, is May 20 of this year. “Midnight in Paris” is the opening film for Film Festival Cannes of 2011 which is May 11th; I think it’s most likely Rachel will make an appearances and do promotion for the film. We also replaced the MQ still with a High Quality one, so be sure to check it out as well.
