Michelle joined the PSA ‘Demand on Plan’ campaign.
Hollywood actors and entertainers have joined forces for Demand a Plan, a grassroots effort to curb gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
The effort is spearheaded by the Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign, launched in July after the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting. Since then, a petition demanding gun reforms has gathered more than 700,000 signatures.
Among the stars in the 90-second PSA: Beyonce, Jamie Foxx, Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Williams, Jon Hamm and Conan O’Brien. Source
First full trailer for “Oz: The Great and Powerful”
The video for “Paradise” by Wild Nothing was released featuring Michelle.
Back in 2008, SPIN rhetorically asked if Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek, Brokeback Mountain) was “the coolest indie actress around.” Four years later, we have a definitive answer in the form of Wild Nothing’s new music video for “Paradise,” a dreamy drifter from the Virginia act’s Nocturne LP. In the Matt Amato-directed clip, which premiered on Pitchfork, Williams hops a plane to Niagara Falls, and we take the trip with her, staring out the window, hearing her read from Iris Murdoch’s 1975 novel A Word Child, and eventually winding up face-to-poncho-wearing-face amidst the glory of the massive falls. We all know Wild Nothing’s Jack Tatum likes a good story, and it’s hard to deny this beatific mood piece with its totes adorbs star. Source
The first trailer for Oz: The Great and Powerful was released last week after the Comic-Con panel for the movie. The movie is set to release on March 8th, 2013.
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot–fame and fortune are his for the taking–that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity–and even a bit of wizardry–Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
Take This Waltz, the upcoming indie romance from Canadian star Sarah Polley, features Michelle Williams as Margot, a young writer who is happily married to her sweet, caring husband Lou (played by Seth Rogen). Everything seems to be going well for the affectionate couple, until Margot meets Daniel (Luke Kirby) on a weekend business trip. He’s new, he’s passionate and most incredibly, he just happens to be Lou and Margot’s next-door neighbor. Now Margot must return home to her seemingly-loving marriage and confront her complicated feelings regarding both men.
Starring in a bittersweet romance, about troubled relationships, is not a challenge for Williams, who earned acclaim in Blue Valentine and Brokeback Mountain. But the heart-break of Waltz is a new acting test for Rogen, the big-screen comedian of Knocked Up and Superbad.
In this exclusive preview clip, we see how close Lou is to losing Margot, without even realizing it. He’s been spending the entire summer, slaving over a hot stove, preparing chicken recipes for his upcoming cookbook; from his perspective, everything from simple affection to small bickering seems normal for a healthy marriage. But his wife needs to see something new and passionate in him, to get her mind off of the hunky, soulful artist who lives across the street.
Two new clips featuring Michelle from her upcoming film Take This Waltz have recently been released online. The one, via MTV, can be viewed below (US visitors only, sorry!) and the other can be seen via Vulture.
The theatrical trailer for Take This Waltz has just been released. View it in full below, and the film is set to be released on June 29.
When Margot (Michelle Williams), 28, meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook writer. When she learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters.
She and Daniel steal moments throughout the steaming Toronto summer, their eroticism heightened by their restraint. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, Take This Waltz leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex, and our images of ourselves.
