Ever since the official trailer and On the Road posters starting rolling out, we've been waiting patiently for Kristen Stewart's individual poster for her character, Marylou. The wait is over! The new image came out today, and it completes the collection of the main characters in the onscreen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic novel. Now we get to compare her too-cool-for-school look (those sunglasses will be all the rage by the time On the Road gets released) to that of her costars, including Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, and Kirsten Dunst. Check out all the posters and let us know what you think!
Michael Fassbender reunited with his A Dangerous Method costars Keira Knightley, in Burberry Prorsum, and Viggo Mortensen this evening for a London premiere. The film came out in the US last Fall but is only just hitting theaters in Keira's home country. To promote the release, Keira's on the cover of GQ UK. An interview in which she discusses making the sex-themed David Cronenberg picture accompanies an equally racy photo spread. Speaking about her relationship with Klaxons musician James Righton and a recent reimmersion in work, Keira said she's in a great place. She commented, "I'm actually loving this bit right now — doing the work I'm doing, having the life I can have around it. Right now, it's really good."
We recently caught up with Keira to find out what she thought about working with Michael. Many thought Michael was overlooked when he didn't snag an Oscar nomination for his role in Shame, and Keira likely agrees. She told us of Michael's performance in Shame, "I think he's amazing . . . He's a phenomenal actor, and I think his performance in Shame is amazing. Talk about brave. I think it's wonderful."
Keira Knightley showed some strategic skin last night at the BFI London Film Festival premiere of A Dangerous Method. The actress, decked out in Roksanda Ilincic, joined her costars Viggo Mortensen and Michel Fassbender on the red carpet along with their director, David Cronenberg. We were able to catch up with David and Michael at a recent NYC press day for the picture, which is out on Nov. 23. Michael said that he loves all the traveling his career requires at the moment, which is a good thing considering that he's been in NYC, San Sebastian, Toronto, and Venice during the last two months alone. He's doing double the jet-setting, since he has the Cronenberg film as well as Steve McQueen's Shame to chat up at festivals around the world.
The Dangerous Method reviews are so far mixed, but David is confident about his leading lady's work. At a press conference yesterday, David said he only wanted Keira to play the role of Sabina Spielrein. He said of Keira, "I think she's underrated as an actress. I took her seriously as an actress right from the first moment, and I was always looking forward to working with her, and I never offered this role to anybody else."
Keira Knightley, in a dress from designer Mary Katrantzou, and Michael Fassbender were up early for a photo call during the Venice Film Festival today on behalf of their movie A Dangerous Method. They joined director David Cronenberg as well as costars Viggo Mortensen, Sarah Gadon, and Vincent Cassel. Sarah also worked with David over the Summer on his next movie, Cosmopolis, with Robert Pattinson. The Knightley-Fassbender-Mortensen movie is one of the most anticipated offerings at Venice, and, according to certain bookies, has odds stacked in its favor to win the top prize, the Golden Lion, at the festival. Michael stars as famous psychiatrist Carl Jung and Viggo, another frequent Cronenberg collaborator, as Sigmund Freud, and they have to deal with personal issues once they encounter a troubled young patient played by Keira. There's even more Michael hotness to come this evening at their premiere, and he'll be out again in a few days doing press duties for his Steve McQueen movie Shame with cast-mate Carey Mulligan. All the movie making has left Michael feeling grateful for the work. Michael Fassbender said of his career in a recent interview, "It’s crazy that I’ve worked with the people I have, that I’m actually allowed to earn a living out of it. I’ve always thought you mustn’t live your life where at the end of it you go, 'oh God, I didn’t do that because I was worried about what other people might think of me.’"
Michael Fassbender fans, get ready for some steamy historical drama for the actor in David Cronenberg's latest film, A Dangerous Method. Fassbender plays Carl Jung, the renowned Swiss psychiatrist, in this film, set in Europe in the early 1900s. Jung meets and collaborates with his mentor and contemporary Sigmund Freud (Cronenberg favorite Viggo Mortensen) on what would ultimately become psychoanalysis.
But personal complications arise, and things get juicy. When new, very troubled patient Sabina (Keira Knightley, playing Russian) enters into his care, the married Jung takes a marked interest in her fractured mental state — and into her personally. As he blurs the professional lines and takes her as his mistress, his wife and Freud challenge his actions, while Jung questions them himself. The movie looks to be a mix of erotica and biopic, which is a welcome respite from the violence in Cronenberg's most recent films.

Several actors walked the red carpet this weekend at the London Film Festival and Rome Film Festival. Nicholas Hoult, Tom Ford, Colin Firth and Matthew Goode looked handsome in their suits at the premiere for A Single Man in London, and the capital also saw the premiere of Viggo Mortensen's The Road. Helen Mirren was in Rome for the The Last Station, and Terry Gilliam and Lily Cole were also in Italy for The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus premiere. Director Jason Reitman was in London for the premiere of Up in the Air on Sunday, having joined George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis for the Rome premiere the night before! As part of his promotion for his films, George has opened up about his relationships and growing old:
- On relationships: "I’ve had some absolutely great relationships and some not so great relationships. I’ve been in some relationships where I’ve felt terribly alone. Just because you’re with someone it doesn’t mean you’re incredibly happy and complete. I’ve had some easy and natural, made-sense breakups as well as some rough ones. I deal with them the same way we all do: I’m successful with some and not so successful with others."
- On getting older: "I’m kind of comfortable with getting older because it’s better than the other option, which is being dead. So I’ll take getting older. It’s an interesting thing to be able to watch yourself grow older on screen. I was watching Up In The Air and I thought, ‘Jesus, who’s the old, grey-haired guy?’ And it was me."
Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce star in this adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road. The book is a Pulitzer Prize winner, and tells the story of a father and son trying to survive in the ashes of post-apocalyptic North America as they make their way to the coast. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you think you'll see or skip the movie when it comes out in the UK later this year.
