Who is Jessica Chastain? For someone who has had co-starring roles of note over the last few years (2001’s The Help), 2013 will see this lass EVERYWHERE! Naturally, a GQ cover article has surfaced (British) which I will try to forget, – think photo shoot in underwear with a lot of open mouths and
orgas-clenched eyes: aka faux-Terry Richardson – but that is the familiar route that such ladies are pushed. So, try and overlook. I swear, this is one of those actresses that Tom Cruise will cast alongside himself within the next few years to leech cred from, and naturally, try to look more straight.
Two major films of note to take heed of:
1 – Academy Award winning Director Kathryn Bigelow returns with Zero Dark Thirty. Chronicling the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May, 2011. Chastain plays a lead role. This is bound to get attention in Oz, as the December 2012 release in the US already has. Reviews have divided audiences. Hitting cinemas Jan 31. Go see!
2 – And if ever there was a time to get excited by a film’s release, the time is now people! Released in Oz on the 28th of Feb, we have Mama (Loz, we have to have a mate-date movie night!). Presented by (and Executive Producer), the glorious Guillermo del Toro. Check out the trailer. This is horror at its best as it looks all about tension and genuine scare-the-shite-out-of-you-factor. Chastain also co-leads as Annabel. Here’s the drill: Annabel and Lucas are faced with the challenge of raising his young nieces that were left alone in the forest for 5 years…. but how alone were they? Que scary stuff.
