Next Movie compiled a list of 15 actors and actresses who they believe will be the biggest fall breakout stars of 2011. Among them was our very own Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Here’s what they had to say about her:
In this prequel to John Carpenter’s terrifying 1982 movie, Winstead takes a flamethrower to her “Scott Pilgrim” alter ego Ramona Flowers, not to mention a whole buttload of slimy, gooey, awful aliens. While we loved Ramona’s cool style and multicolored hair, it’s great to see Winstead as a parka-wearing scientist caught in the middle of an increasingly horrific situation. (Not to mention that Carpenter’s “The Thing” was all dudes, all the time.) We’ll be seeing more of Winstead next summer as Mary Todd Lincoln in Timur Bekmambetov’s big screen adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” alongside Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, and Anthony Mackie. So protect your neck — Ms. Winstead’s coming.
Mary’s star has always shined, it’s only a matter of time until the rest of Hollywood and the rest of the world notices if you ask me. Best wishes to Mary and her career. 🙂
Mary’s one of four women profiled in the latest L.A. Times feature where they compliment them being one of the generations leading ladies.
Here’s what they had to say about Mary Elizabeth:
A producer recently told me that women like horror flicks more than men. That tidbit is a tad ironic, given the sheer number of ingenues who have met their doom at the end of a slasher’s knife. Winstead herself loves a good gorefest, having costarred in flicks ranging from Grindhouse to Final Destination 3. But her next horror gig holds particular significance: As the first female lead in the latest reimagining of The Thing, due out October 14, she straps herself into a parka, hardens her normally doe-like gaze into a stony stare and joins Milla Jovovich and Sigourney Weaver in the elite club of leading ladies who utterly kick monster butt. “I don’t have a lot of friends who relate to the girls walking around in Daisy Dukes,” says Winstead. “I don’t relate to it, and I don’t relate to the rom-com girl crying into her Ben & Jerry’s, either. But this character is strong, smart and takes care of herself. When I saw the script, I knew it was something I could not say no to.”
You can see the lovely new photo of Mary in the gallery:
Mary attended the 3rd Annual Operation Smile Luncheon hosted by Dior Beauty yesterday, August 23 and looked lovely as always in her all white outfit! The silver bow on her top is really cute. At the event, she posed with actress Kate Mara. Visit the gallery and enjoy the new pics!!
Update: A total of 3 pics have been added.
Hey, everyone! Just decided to give you guys a quick update on everything. As you may have noticed, Melanie & I have been really hard at work rebuilding not only the site, but the gallery as well. We’ve already managed to update the gallery with all events, photo shoots, scans, and other projects. Pretty much, all we have left to do is add main film caps and some extras caps. If you have anything you’d like to contribute, don’t hesitate to use the contact button on the homepage under the site info on the left hand side of the page. Until then, I have gone ahead and added a couple of trailer screencaps from the ones Mary has appeared in, none of which would’ve been completed without the help of my friend DS. We still have a little more work to do, but we appreciate all your patience and support! 🙂
Without further ado, the trailer caps we’ve uploaded include…
Final Destination 3:
Two trailers for Deathproof:
Live Free or Die Hard:
Make It Happen:
And all three trailers for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World so feel free to visit the gallery to see all three trailer caps from there. Below is just the caps for the full trailer, but the teaser and international trailer have also been posted.
Late last week, Mary and Riley announced that they’d be working on a new short film together titled Magnificat and now we have our first look at Mary in the film!
You can head on over to the film’s site or check out the pic in our gallery.
Glad to hear they’ll be including original score by Marco Beltrami from the 1982 film. If you’ve seen Carpenter’s version, you know how amazing that score is.
Varese Sarabande has announced a soundtrack release for the upcoming horror thriller The Thing. The album features the movie’s original score by Marco Beltrami. The soundtrack will be released on October 11, 2011. The full details of the release are expected to be announced within the next couple of weeks.
Check back soon when more details are released!
The film opens in theaters on October 14.
Fantastic news, everyone! Mary’s husband, Riley Stearns, has announced that he has written and will be directing a new short film entitled Magnificat. Here’s what Riley posted:
My name is Riley Stearns. I’ve decided to create a tumblr (did I spell that correctly?) to keep people up to date with the goings on of a film I wrote and will be directing called “magnificat” starring the lovely and talented Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
I hope to post pictures, video, and audio here from time to time and give those curious a look into the making of the film. Until then, this bland introductory post will have to do.
Be sure to follow the film’s Tumblr for updates over at http://magnificatfilm.tumblr.com/
This is really exciting news and I for one cannot wait to see the progress on the film. The very best of luck to Mary, Riley and everyone else involved in the film! 🙂
