Jesus, THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE looks amazing

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Not since the song Bette Davis Eyes, by Kim Carnes, has heavy mascara had such a treatment as with upcoming release THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE from Searchlight Pictures. The real Tammy Faye Bakker (then remarried as Messner) died on July 20, 2007, but her legacy lives on as Jessica Chastain is on the case as 2021’s Tammy. Chastain bites into this role with no less than Andrew Garfield, who plays televangelist husband Jim Bakker. That&rsquo...

Jessica Chastain needs no help rocking THE 355 out of the box for 2021

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent "You have cameras in your jewelry," is one line you won't hear from Q in 007, but Mr. Bond has nothing on these five eyes in THE 355, starring Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Fan Bingbing ,Diane Kruger, Lupita Nyong’o, from Universal to drop in Jan. 2021. Chastain is the driving force behind this one as producer/star. And there’s a spy-twist-worthy plot here in the mix as Chinese beauty Fan BingBing, who rank...

X Men-Dark Phoenix, Review: X-Men, ex X-Men and X-Women

X Men-Dark Phoenix, Review: X-Men, ex X-Men and X-Women Every fan knows that the X in X-Men is for Xavier, the teacher-trainer who runs a school for the differently abled (gifted with a power or force other humans do not possess). In Dark Phoenix, there is a lot of play on the ‘word’, if one may call it that, X-Men. There are X-Men, and there are ex X-Men, then there are women members of X-Men who tell Xavier disparagingly that he should consider changing the name to X-Women, in v...

Batman & Spiderman Walk Into MOLLY’S GAME, But Jessica Chastain Doesn’t Cave to Superheroes

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Holy Toledo, sometimes an insider Hollywood story is so good, you see how the game is played. Jessica Chastain in MOLLY'S GAME So once upon a Batman, and a few-movies-ago Spiderman, the caped one and the web slinger became poker fanatics, like super fanatics, in a snake-pit-named Hollywood club’s back room, a club once owned by a Pirate. True story, plus there’s an ex-Olympic skier with the same name as a character from James ...

The Huntsman-Winter’s War, Review: Ice Maiden and Sinister Sister

The Huntsman-Winter’s War, Review: Ice Maiden and Sinister Sister What? No Snow White in the title? Right. Almost no Snow White in the picture too. Many Huntsmen, one ‘The Huntsman’, two evil queen sisters who hate everybody, including each other, a few dwarves, a kingdom of gnomes and monsters, and the ubiquitous mirror that often steals the image (read: scene). Evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron), who has the power of shooting tentacles to wrap her opponents, betrays her...

Oscar Isaac: Probably Time for Oscar & AFI Fest 2014 Opens Wide

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   What is it about Oscar Isaac? When he and Jessica Chastain kicked off AFI Fest 2014 Opening Night with A Most Violent Year, the energy between the two of them was evident. Not because they both attended Juilliard, or because they are both born in March, or even the visible screen chemistry as a couple on film. But because if you trace both of their film choices, between the pair, you begin to see them build their credits and their onscr...

TIFF It Girl: Jessica Chastain

user
  You can be excused if you believe that new starlet Jessica Chastain is in every movie opening this season. The busy actress can currently be seen on the big screen in three major summer movies, including Terrence Malick’s THE TREE OF LIFE, the best seller adaptation THE HELP and the espionage actioner THE DEBT. At the recent Venice Film Festival, she regally walked the red carpet along with co-star and director Al Pacino for WILDE SALOME, his meta-textual adaptation of the Oscar Wilde ...
