Jude Law spotted leaving the Donmar Warehouse 29 August 2011

Handsome...the man is handsome...really handsome..someone can stop me saying this?

Bryan Cranston & Jude Law Interview For ‘Contagion’ Source Flick and Bits

‘Contagion’ centres on the threat posed by a rapidly progressing deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. As the virus spreads around the world, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the film also stars Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lawrence Fishbourne, Demitri Martin, Sanaa Lathan and Elliott Gould. ‘Contagion’ opens September 9th in the US, and October 21st in the UK. In-depth interviews will be posted next week.
You really get involved with the many characters in this film….
Bryan Cranston: It’s complex, it’s easy to follow because you feel for these people. Even though ‘Contagion’ deals largely on a plot driven story, without the human involvement you wouldn’t get the connection, or feel the connection. So whether it’s Marion Cotillard’s character in Hong Kong, or Matt Damon’s character trying to save his daughters life in Minnesota. What you don’t realise is the conflict at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), where you have these Doctors, and in my characters place, Military Men, the incredibly pressurised task of first finding out what we’re dealing with, trying to find a component of it, then manufacturing it in a controlled environment so that we can start attacking it to kill it. The characters are key.
Jude, can you tell us about your character’s convictions, and his view on government controls?
Jude Law: He’s a campaigner for freedom of speech, but also conspiracy theories. I think unfortunately his ego and his pride get in the way of his convictions.
I think he has an inbuilt reaction to government backed vaccination programmes, and government backed research, he has a cynical view of the legal process, and the governmental process behind investigation on medical issues. So I think that often leads him into areas of alternatives, then raising alternatives and watching them be covered up. Where he’s very interesting to this story is that he does actually get the lead on everyone else, he sees something before everyone else, therefore he has the run on them for quite a while.

How was it working with Steven Soderbergh?
Bryan Cranston: Steven Soderbergh is great in the way that he listens to suggestions. He’s very fast, one of the fastest directors I’ve ever worked with, he moves quickly and that’s great. So when an actor goes home after ten hours, as opposed to fourteen or fifteen hours, that helps a lot, you’re much more refreshed the next day, then the following day, then the day after that. You can bring more energy to the role. He really is great.
Jude Law: I’ve wanted to work with Steven Soderbergh for many years, many many years (laughs). It’s been a really terrific experience, he brings incredible composure, and confidence, and fun to a set. He has a very unique process of…..because he’s also looking as director of photography and operator, he has a very beautiful and intimate way of choosing his shots. I felt that absolutely intensified the relationship a director has with an actor, where they’re viewing you absolutely in the moment.
The idea of this type of outbreak happening is terrifying, what are your thoughts on the possibilities of it actually happening?
Jude Law: The overriding impression from all of the experts I got from this was that it’s a matter of when, not if. I suppose if you just step back and look at it historically, these things have happened in the past, and not that long ago. We’ve had little scares in the last few years, it seems absolutely plausible, actually more so now because of travel increase, international travel increases. Therefore the ability of bugs and virus’ getting on planes and travelling half way around the world.

Jude Law, Rachel Weisz and Anthony Hopkins star in 360 by Fernando Meirelles

Gorgeous picture of Jude Law, soo attractive, I am waiting October 12 to come back to London and see him without the beard, the play 'Anna christie' finishes the 8th October so he will have time to shave it :)

Rachel Weisz, Jude Law's '360' to open London Film Festival

Rachel Weisz and Jude Law's romantic drama 360 will open the 55th BFI London Film Festival on October 12.

Director Fernando Meirelles's film portrays a series of interconnected relationships across the globe in a single narrative. The story begins in Vienna before moving on to Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix.

Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster co-star in 360, which Oscar-nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan adapted from Arthur Schnitzler's play.

360 marks a return to the London Film Festival for Meirelles, whose The Constant Gardener opened the festival in 2005.

"In the past decade I've been to the BFI London Film Festival six times, some of them as a guest, and some as part of the audience," the Brazilian filmmaker said. "I am very honoured that 360, an intimate film that talks about our options in life, has been chosen to open the festival this year."

LFF artistic director Sandra Hebron added: "With its impeccable film making credentials and intriguing premise, 360 combines masterful visual story-telling with a modern and moving narrative, helped by strong performances from a terrific ensemble cast."

Hebron will step down from her role after being with the BFI Festival's department since 1997.

The BFI London Film Festival runs from October 12-27.

Jude Law Makes a Revelatory Performance in London Source: New York Times


Jude Law Makes a Revelatory Performance in London

LONDON — Late August is supposed to be London’s theatrical silly season, that time of year during which things go quiet and cultural interest shifts northward to the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland. How, then, to explain a recent array of openings testifying not just to ongoing activity in the capital but to arguably the most revelatory performance of Jude Law’s career?
You can glimpse that last achievement for yourself at the Donmar Warehouse, where Mr. Law has opened in “Anna Christie” for a limited run through Oct. 8. (The entire engagement is sold out, but there are always returns; a commercial transfer has been mooted, as well.) Cast as a swaggering Irish stoker last played on Broadway in 1993 by Liam Neeson, the slight-of-frame Englishman that is Mr. Law hardly sounds like the first person you would turn to for this role.
But that’s to discount the hours spent in the gym or with a trainer that are evident from Mr. Law’s bulked-up physique, which is on formidable view from the moment he first hauls himself in front of Ruth Wilson, playing the onetime prostitute of the title. Visual transformation aside, Mr. Law’s commitment to the brooding, near-animalistic intensity of the role impresses most, as if a film star whose stage forays of late have tended toward the decorative were in fact reinventing himself from the inside out.

The story of my meeting with Jude Law

Hello everyone,
It is the happiest week end I spent since a long time ago, I realized a big dream: meet Jude Law, get his autograph, talk to him, and have a picture with him...I did aaallll this and I hope the same thing for all fans reading  and following this blog. so here is what happened from Friday 18th August until 201st August 2011:

Thursday 18th August 2011:
- Evening after work: Went out to buy chocolates and red flowers so I can keep it until the next day because I was afraid to not have time to do it.

Friday 19th August 2011:
- I was soo excited that I couldn't sleep that night, I woke up early in the morning, I went to the airport, I was so afraid that something bad happens with the flight...cancelled...delayed..and the play is at 7h30 pm..hopefully we had just a delay of 40minutes so it was fine.

- I arrived at Heathrow airport at 5h30 pm, let me tell you I don't know how I did to get into central London in one hour, used Heathrow express and then the underground..A friend of mine who bought Anna Christie ticket for me was waiting for me between 6 and 7 pm at Lupita Restaurant behind sharing Cross station so it was fine I was on time, got the ticket at 6h30pm, run to the hotel and no time to do the check in so I let my luggage there because It was 7h10pm, took the taxi for a distance that I was able to do in 5minutes by walk :)

-Here I am at the Donmar Warehouse, a very cozy theater that you can hardly believe it's one from the outside, very discrete and charming inside. I had the seat B14 at the circle, I took the seat and made sure to put my view glasses.

- It's 7h30 pm the play began and it's excellent, I've never seen such high level of performances. Jude law appears in the second part like a sailor who was about to die in the sea but he survived, the first thing that you can see is his TORSO, incredibly amazing it's like he did a lot of training and it seems to suit him a lot, he is HOT and gorgeous, the wet torso of Jude Law is something which makes you feel in a hiiiigh temperature  and you can't forget that. He falls in love with Anna Christie, I will not tell you the story but it's better that you read the play before attending because they are acting with both Irish ans Swedish accent and sometimes it's very hard to understand, however Jude is brilliant and you can see him kissing Anna , such a good kisser. Just imagine with me he will kiss her twice a day between the 4th august and the 8th October.
- After 2h we got a break of 15min before the last part of the play and it finished at 10h pm. and It was time to wait for Jude....what happened is that Jude Law is not using the front door of the theater, he is using the back door in the parallel street to go home and of course I missed him that night. I was soo sad but I was hopping to return the next day and try again.

Saturday 20th August 2011:
- I visited London, it's a very nice city, a must see for all people living in this earth. I was visiting and thinking how can I do this time, I decided finally to pass by the theater just to see what was happening. I found that when they are doing the break between the end of the first play and the beginning of the second one, It seems that Jude is going out from the back door of the theater every day at 5pm to have a coffee so you can't miss him but I advise people to not do that because he feels a little bit bothered at that time because the only thing he wants is to relax. He was back at 5h30 pm walking fast, I got only my book signed (Cold mountain) and he asked us to leave him.

- I decided to come back another time at 10pm like the day before because the flowers and the chocolates it was necessary to give that to him and I waited for him at the back door, with other Russian girls who already gave the flowers to him (you can see them in my last article)...and guess what...he decided to go out from the front door...I was very sad..but an incredible thing happened then, I met 2 guys Ben and Thomas who were like angels saving me, they took me to a pub where Jude is used to have a drink and Hallelujah he was there...I walked to him I was hesitant to talk to him and finally he saw me, I gave him the flowers and them the chocolates, he was smiling and thanks me. we shacked hands, I told him that I did 1300miles to see him, he asked me about my country, made a compliment about it, he asked me if I attended the play I said yes and I explained him how I waited for him in the wrong door and he laughed, I told him that he is amazing, and then I asked him for the picture, he was nice to me and accepted, I apologized to bother him, he said it's ok. Ben (one of my angels) took the pictures, we said goodbye and I hopped for him a nice evening....THE END oh goood I couldn't imagine having Jude only for me, I was sooo happy :)
I guess now I can die....no I won't I want to meet him another time, hahaha
here is my picture with him, and a picture of the Donmar theater, others pictures will follow later
Inside the theater 
Me and Jude Law...Ruth Wilson behind us

Just arrived from London...AMAZING the story of my meeting with Jude Law will follow tomorrow

New Looks At Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins & Ben Foster In Fernando Meirelles’ ‘360’

It has been a few years since we last heard from “City Of God” director Fernando Meirelles. After his excellent 2005 thriller “The Constant Gardner,” the director brought an adaptation of Jose Saramago‘s “Blindness” to the big screen that failed to quite capture the terror of the novel, but his latest should find him back on firm footing. Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster, Jarnel Debouze, Karl Markovic, Maria Flor and Juliano Cazarr have come together for the erotic/dramatic thriller “360” and with the film set to premiere is few short weeks, a batch of new photos have arrived.
Penned by Peter Morgan, the film is a retelling of the classic Arthur Schnitzler play “Reigen.” The play, perhaps the best known work by Schnitzler (who also wrote the short story that served as the basis for Stanley Kubrick‘s “Eyes Wide Shut”) has been adapted a number of times, from Max Ophuls’ 1950 film “La Ronde” to David Hare‘s 1998 play “The Blue Room,” which starred Nicole Kidman and Iain Glen. It has a simple and rather brilliant conceit; it’s made up of several short scenes between couples, who are shown before or after a sexual liaison. After each scene, one character from the pairing is then shown with another partner, who is then shown with another partner, and so on, until the promiscuity comes full circle. Certainly it’s some very charged material and these new pics give us a look at the ensemble collected to tell the tale.
“360” will make its world premiere at TIFF next month, but the film is currently without a distributor so you’ll likely be waiting a while yet to see this in your local theater. Official logline below. [TIFF]
Director Fernando Meirelles (City of God) reunites with his Constant Gardener star Rachel Weisz, who stars opposite Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, and Ben Foster in this uncompromising dramatic thriller fuelled by the notion of how sexual relationships can transgress social boundaries.

BBC critics to the play Anna Christie at Donmar

Jude Law impresses critics in new play Anna Christie

Critics have saluted Jude Law's latest appearance on the West End stage, with one national reviewer calling it "the best performance I've seen him give".
The Guardian's Michael Billington says the actor is "excellent" in the Donmar Warehouse's "outstanding" revival of Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie.
The Telegraph's Charles Spencer says he "discovers humour [and] tenderness" in his role as a burly Irish docker.
The Independent's reviewer, meanwhile, applauds his "muscle-bound torso".
First staged in 1921, O'Neill's play about a former prostitute reuniting with her sailor father won the Pulitzer Prize for drama the following year.
It was famously filmed in 1930 with Swedish star Greta Garbo, while Natasha Richardson appeared in a celebrated New York production in 1993 alongside her future husband Liam Neeson.
Ruth Wilson plays Anna in Rob Ashford's new production, a role to which she brings "both toughness and vulnerability" in Spencer's eyes.
"There is an emotional rawness here that is often painful to watch, but not a trace of sentimentality in her acting," the Telegraph's critic continues.
According to the Independent's Paul Taylor, the 29-year-old - previously seen in BBC crime drama Luther - is "magnificent in every department".
The "splendid" David Hayman is also praised for his portrayal of her Swedish father, "a scrawny mass of defensive guilt and pathetically belated pride".

Charles Spencer also found Hayman "superb", though he expresses reservations about his character's "somewhat overdone Swedish English".
He also suggests Law's Irish speech patterns "often sound like a wicked parody of JM Synge" and that the 38-year-old resembles "the bearded old salt on packets of Player's Navy Cut".
Anna Christie has also drawn praise from theEvening Standard's Henry Hitchings, who suggests the "visceral toughness" Law exudes "may just shape an entirely new career path for him".
Ashford's "deft" and "classy" production, he continues, is "likely to haunt those who see it for a long time".
Wilson previously appeared at the Donmar alongside Rachel Weisz in A Streetcar Named Desire, a role for which she won an Olivier award.
Law, meanwhile, played the title role in a 2009 Donmar production of Hamlet, presented at the larger Wyndham's theatre.
Anna Christie forms part of Michael Grandage's farewell season at the Donmar after nine years as its artistic director.
The intimate studio theatre will host a revival of John Osborne's Inadmissible Evidence after it finishes its run on 8 October.


Get past the treacle-thick accents and a laborious opening and this is a polished and powerful production of Eugene O'Neill's wordy play.
But if you have trouble swallowing Jude Law's Oirish brogue or David Hayman's Svedish dialect, you're in for a long night.
A stormy second act that sees the actors stumble precariously around a wet and inclined stage also feels unnecessarily clumsy.
Missteps apart, though, this is sure to be yet another hot ticket for the Donmar as Michael Grandage's successful tenure draws to a close."
