Hello! My name is Luciana and I’ll be helping out here at my favorite Rachel source. You may already know me from Amy Adams Fan, Winona Forever and Adoring Sandra Bullock, among others sites. I’m really excited to join the staff here!
To start, I’m updating the most recent Rachel appearances with HQ photos. Added more than 130 HQ photos to “Midnight in Paris” NY screening, and this is just to start…

We recently came across some additions of Rachel on set of her upcoming movie, co-starring Channing Tatum, “The Vow” which is expected to release February 10, 2012. We added the full set of Michael Sheen visiting Rachel on set of the movie in Toronto (October 16th, 2010) and an untagged version of Rachel on set wearing the pink wedding dress in Chicago (October 26th, 2010).
According to the official facebook from Channing Tatum’s Official website Channing Tatum Unwrapped the movie already had it’s first early screening a few weeks ago (April 2011). An early screening is common, sometimes they screen a movie a few times with audience to see how they respond for the editing process.

The box office results are coming in from this weekend and “Midnight in Paris” collected $579,000 from just six locations since it got a limited release in only New York and LA before going wide in the next few weeks. It’s also number #15 at the current best opening-weekend average of all time.
The movie also made already a $5,899,206 Foreign and it only opened in Spain and France so far, taking the second place in France and the first place in Spain. Congratulations to Rachel & the cast/crew! We hope it will do only better in the next weeks.
In limited release, Midnight in Paris — the new Woody Allen romantic comedy starring Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams — collected $579,000 from just six locations. Its estimated per-theater tally of $96,500 is the 15th best opening-weekend average on record, beating the likes of There Will Be Blood, The King’s Speech, and Black Swan.
Meanwhile, opening at just six locations, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris took in an estimated $579,000, boasting the top per-location average of the year so far. That more than tripled the debut of Allen’s last movie, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (also at six locations), and marked his most impressive limited launch in decades.
“Midnight in Paris” opens in theaters today, it still has a limited release so only in New York and LA but it gets a wider release in the next weeks. The movie opened Cannes film festival and is getting positive reviews so far.
The movie is directed by Woody Allen and co-stars Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Adrien Brody and Michael Sheen.
As we reported earlier, Rachel is featured in June’s W Magazine (with Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks on the cover) and today W Magazine released the interview and outtake. We added Rachel’s magazine scan – we will add the article scan(s) as soon as possible – and the outtake in our gallery and we absolutely love it! She looks so stunning, we hope more outtakes will be released some day. The photo is featured with an article/interview with Woody talking about his muses, and he has high praise for Rachel as well.
You can watch all Woody’s muses in a sideshow at W Magazine’s official website. The photos were taken by Sebastian Kim and styled by Carolyn Tate Angel. His other muses, that are featured in the article, are Naomi Watts, Penélope Cruz, Téa Leoni and Mariel Hemingway. The magazine will hit newsstands May 24th.
In this year’s Midnight in Paris, he tweaks Rachel McAdams’s good-girl image, reimagining her as a socially ambitious, fast-talking nag. “I wanted her to play the bad girl, the girl who’s sexy enough to be negative and still interesting,” Allen told me over the phone this spring. “But I’m crazy about Rachel. I have great adoration and lust and interest in all of the women in my films. It would thrill me to go out with all of them.”

We have some good news and some bad news. First of all, we announced earlier Rachel was expected to Attend the “Midnight in Paris” LA premiere yesterday (May 18) but she did not walk the red carpet and we haven’t seen her attending the after party as well. We are not sure if she even flew to LA after the New York premiere but we assume she did but maybe something came up. We did however add more additions to the New York premiere.
Now the good news: “Midnight in Paris” gets a limited release this Friday (May 20) in LA and New York but in the upcoming weeks it will get a wider release by week starting May 27. You can find all the release dates and theaters (in the USA) at the official website. It’s a good sign it’s getting a wider release. The reviews and reactions are positive so far – the movie currently has a 86% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
We also came across a new set of candids from Rachel & Michael outside the building were the after party for the New York premiere/screening was held. Rachel was already wearing her other outfit. She wore a top and pants ensemble by Azzaro and Christian Louboutin heels.
The first interviews and articles are coming in as well from the Cannes/Midnight in Paris press days. We will make a round-up later on but you can already keep an eye on our press archive and the Latests Interview list in our sidebar.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that “Midnight in Paris” took the second place in France. The movie premiered in France the same time as the Cannes Opening Film and already made 4 million in the French box office. The limited (New York+LA) US release is May 20th. The LA premiere is scheduled for May 18th but we are not sure Rachel will attend.
Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, the 64th Cannes International Film Festival’s opening presentation, premiered commercially in France via Mars Distribution, registering an estimated $4 million from some 325 locations and a No. 2 market ranking behind Fast Five.
We will make a round up/additions updates this week with all the Cannes coverage since it was a lot to keep up with. You can already view all our additions in our gallery, but we will make a nice overview for you this week.
