Sandra attended today during the Toronto Film Festival a press conference for Our Brand is Crisis, joined by actress Zoe Kazan, director David Gordon Green, producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov. You can watch the press conference on the player above, also check pictures added in our gallery.
Reviews have been great for the film so far – also Variety is pointing that Calamity Jane Bodine is easily one of the best female roles of the last 10 years. Guardian also says that “Bullock must carry the film by herself. Handily, she manages the task effortlessly, and as a carefully orchestrated campaign to win her another Oscar, it’s a success. While the film is patchy, Bullock’s brand is confidently crisis-free.” Exciting much, huh?
Enjoy the pictures!
“Our Brand is Crisis” was screened earlier today on Toronto festival and I have some pictures added in our gallery. Sandra was beautiful in a David Koma dress, and was all smiles on the red carpet with her friend, Gravity co-star and Our Brand is Crisis producer George Clooney.
Friday afternoon, the cast of Our Brand Is Crisis stopped by InStyle TIFF studio, including Sandra Bullock, Zoe Kazan, Scott McNairy, Grant Heslov, and David Gordon Green.
“She is complicated, but she is also incredibly brilliant at what she does,” Bullock says of her character in the film–a movie about the use of American political campaign strategies in South America. “She is able to do what she does without her conscience stepping in up to a certain point, and you see what happens when that shift is made when someone gets in and allows her to see the repercussions and the ramifications of what she’s done and she has to look at that. You wonder is she going to look away or is she going to ignore as she always has and keep going through?
What’s up next for the star? Only time will tell! “It was two years before I found this [role] and it might be another two years before I find something else. I don’t know what I am looking for, but I am just looking to get into the car pool lane on time and not get fussed at,” says Bullock, who is mom to son Louis. “That is really my goal right now. If a good role comes along, that is icing on the cake.”
Earlier this week Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Our Brand is Crisis, in which Sandra plays Jane Bodine, a formerly world-class campaign strategist who gets a shot at redemption when she’s called on to help sway a presidential race in South America.
Also starring Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, Scott McNairy, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, and Joaquim de Almeida, and directed by David Gordon Green, Our Brand Is Crisis arrives in theaters on Oct. 30 and will premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Watch it:
We are moving servers, again. The previous one added a new system of adcodes (according them, to help paying the server costs) and it was showing up inappropriate/porn advertisements, and I don’t want my visitors having to deal with this kind of thing.
I have found a new server, and I’m currently uploading the gallery images right now. All images are safe, just need to be reuploaded. It shall be done by the end of the day.
Our Brand Is Crisis, starring Sandra and Billy Bob Thornton, will world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, it was announced Tuesday.
The film is an adaptation of the 2005 documentary of the same name, which follows a group of American consultants who accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected. In the upcoming feature, Bullock plays a maverick political consultant, “Calamity” Jane Bodine, who comes out of retirement to lead the team, while Thornton portrays her enemy.
Warner Bros. has given an awards-season release date of October 30 to the film, and the 40th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 10 to 20.
