The trailers for Maps to the Stars and Manhattan have been released.

I can't find the first international trailer (the post prod trailer with actual text at the start that says "post production" or PG version), so here's the the red band, NSFW trailer.

If the above links don't work for you, Indie Wire has the trailer not hosted by youtube and a bit of write-up of the movie here.

Maps to the Stars will premiere on May 21st in the Cannes Film Festival.

The trailer for Manhattan was released just a few hours ago.

Olivia plays Liza Winters, a "botanist with a past". Manhattan will premiere this July on WGN.

And here's a twitter pic from the set, via one of the stars of the show, Katja Herbers.

I feel weird about posting this instead of [livejournal.com profile] derevko_child, but I just saw this and, um....

Putting this behind a cut, although you can't really see anything )

This is for a campaign for Fishlove which is: "Stars strip bare to raise awareness of deep sea trawling, which is causing a collapse in the world's fish population." You can see more pictures from the campaign (the only other person I recognize is Gillian Anderson) HERE, plus there is a link to sign a petition, if you wish. I hate to say it, but all these fish look deader than dead. :-( I will pretend they put the fish in water periodically, even though I know it's dirty lie.  (Olivia is posing with deceased sabre fish, btw)

Also, apparently Olivia's pig farmer/witch reshoots couldn't save Seventh Son and the release date has been pushed to February 6th, 2015 (they should have totally added a hat subplot...it could've saved the movie!)

uno. Ten, Olivia's movie where she plays an detective investigating the deaths of members of an elite DEA task force is now known as Sabotage. Previous movie titles include Breacher.

Here's an excerpt from a story in moviepilot.com (warning: the site's a little bit slow, there's some javascript involved and shiznit)

Sabotage casts Arnold as a baddie (with a neck tattoo, no less), one of ten crooked DEA agents who rob a drug cartel only later to be killed off one by one, a la Agatha Christies, Ten Little Indians, upon which the premise of Sabotage is loosely inspired.

Although the film was shot in Atlanta and wrapped several months ago, the Los Angeles reshoots were necessitated after unfavorable audience response to an early test screening sometime in April. While I wont reveal the detail particulars of the reshoot (which are so significant as to qualify as spoilers) Olivia Williams, the Shakespearean-trained actress whos making a rare foray into the action genre by portraying a tough investigator in Sabotage, informs me that the reshoots will guarantee a more favorable movie experience for Schwarzenegger fans, and that the former California governors somewhat against-type is likely to reveal a heretofore unexplored dimensionality to Schwarzeneggers usual screen persona. Williams also stated, that while the work was often grueling (one scene involved three days of mud wrestling with Arnold in an Atlanta lake), working with Schwarzenegger was quite the pleasure and that the actor was a consummate professional throughout.

Olivia is part of The Guest, a twelve-minute film directed by Daniel Montanarini. Together with her in the film are Betrand Lesca and Pip Torrens.

Here is the plot synopsis from the film's facebook page

A graduate, Matthieu, meets his old university lecturer for coffee. The professor invites him to a dinner party but upon arrival Matthieu discovers he is the only guest.

Matthieu meets the professor's wife who ignores her husband but is more than happy to devote all her attention to their guest. As the evening progresses, it becomes clear that the couple are concealing a dark secret.

Matthieu's curiosity gets the better of him and he decides to find out for himself what that dark secret is.

Seems like it's still going around the film festival circuit.

A room of my own: Olivia Williams

Olivia Williams is a London girl, which is fitting for someone who we'll next see playing a mayoral candidate in the TV play City Hall, written by her husband, the actor and playwright Rhashan Stone. Growing up in Camden, she used to pass through Marylebone, where she now lives with Stone and their two daughters, on her way to Saturday-morning ballet class; she originally thought this flat would be her "bachelorette pad… my happy acceptance of permanent singledom".

Mod Note: both the article and the City Hall page on the Sky Arts website have it listed as premiering on May 3rd but Rhashan Stone's Facebook page has it up on May 10th.

I've compiled some of the reviews of the play. Most reviews praise the performances of Olivia and Matthew, but not so much on the writing of the play.

If you've found any new reviews, leave a comment and I'll add it to the list. If, on the other hand, you've watched the play and want to leave a review, just make a new entry. ♥

I posted these at my journal, but I thought I would share them here as well.

I've been doing massive intense searches for Olivia pictures recently, and came across some lovelies.
