Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival keeps getting better. 2017 can’t get here soon enough.

Deadline reports that Naomi Watts has reportedly booked a ticket to the fictional Washington town. Her new gig reunites the 47-year-old actress with David Lynch. The director cast her in her breakout role in the 2001 psychological thriller Mulholland Drive.

Watts joins a star-studded cast which includes returning Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Tom Sizemore and Kyle MacLachlan along with newbies Laura Dern, Balthazar Getty, Robert Knepper and Amanda Seyfried. It’s worth nothing that only MacLachlan’s casting has been confirmed by the network.

Filming is currently underway in Washington state. The series is set to debut in early 2017 on Showtime. Excited that Watts is on board? Weigh in below.

After losing his wife in a tragic car accident, Jake Gyllenhaal attempts to rebuild his life by demolishing things first. His come-to-Jesus moment begins innocently enough as he writes a complaint letter to a vending machine company.

Demolition Movie Synopsis

Davis (Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (Chris Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.

Demolition comes from Jean-Marc Vallee, the same man who delivered Dallas Buyers Club and Wild. The film premieres this week at TIFF but won’t hit theaters until April 8, 2016. Check out the first trailer below.

The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne about Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe, the first-ever person to undergo male-to-female gender reassignment surgery, is getting plenty of buzz and press. However, it’s not the only film about the transgender community coming soon. About Ray debuts a couple of months earlier than Redmayne’s shot for back-to-back Oscars.

Elle Fanning plays a teenager on the road to transitioning to become a male. Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon also star in the film playing Fanning character’s mom and lesbian grandmother respectively. About Ray will be released on September 18, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

About Ray Movie Synopsis

About Ray tells the stirring and touching story of three generations of a family living under one roof in New York as they must deal with the life-changing transformation by one that ultimately affects them all. Ray (Elle Fanning) is a teenager who has come to the realization that she isn’t meant to be a girl and has decided to transition from female to male. His single mother, Maggie (Naomi Watts), must track down Ray’s biological father (Tate Donovan) to get his legal consent to allow Ray’s transition. Dolly (Susan Sarandon), Ray’s lesbian grandmother is having a hard time accepting that she now has a grandson. They must each confront their own identities and learn to embrace change and their strength as a family in order to ultimately find acceptance and understanding.

The first teaser for Diana just featured Naomi Watts pretty much in slow motion recreating some of the titular princess’ most notable moments. It was a collection of images set to music. The newly-dropped international trailer finally shows Watts’ acting chops, delivering some actual dialogue. Does the Aussie actress pull off playing the “People’s Princess“? Based on the trailer, not only does she kinda resemble Diana but she also captures her essence.

Obviously, there have been other films about the “people’s princess.” This one stands out due to its focus on her relationships with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) and Dodi Fayed (Cas Anvar). Khan was allegedly her lover she used to smuggle into Kensington Palace in the trunk of her butler’s car. Fayed as you all know was her boyfriend she died with that fateful night in Paris in 1997.

Oliver Hirschbiegel directs the film and will premiere in the UK on September 5. It will arrive in North American theaters after that with no specific date solidified just yet. I fully expect this to be a scandalous (somewhat classy) biopic. Check out the trailer below.

Originally called Two Mothers, Naomi Watts and Robin Wright’s movie has been renamed to Adore. With a new title, comes a new and sexier trailer and for that… THANK YOU. The new clip highlights more of the sensual and provocative nature of the Anne Fontaine-directed film.

Adore is a gripping tale of love, lust and the power of friendship that charts the unconventional and passionate affairs of two lifelong friends Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) who fall in love with each other’s sons played by James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom) and Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse). 29-year-old Samuel looks especially smoking in the film. WOOF. The film is based on British writer Doris Lessing’s Nobel Prize-winning The Grandmothers: Four Short Novels.

In a previous interview, Watts claimed, “it’s not just about sex and their ages.” That maybe true, but the new trailer says otherwise. It’s all about the cougars lusting after their best friend’s son. I can’t wait to see how this emotional tug-of-war between love and lust unfolds. Adore will be available On Demand and in theaters on September 6. Check out the new trailer below.

First Trailer of Naomi Watts As Princess Diana

In: Donovan, Movies

The legend is never the whole story.” Amen to that and thankfully for an upcoming biopic, we’ll know more of the story. Hopefully in a sensationalized way. As you know, I love me a scandalous biopic.

The first teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated Diana just dropped. Oscar nominee Naomi Watts plays the titular princess. Obviously, there have been other films about the “people’s princess.” This one stands out due to its focus on her relationships with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) and Dodi Fayed (Cas Anvar). Khan was allegedly her lover she used to smuggle into Kensington Palace in the trunk of her butler’s car. Fayed as you all know was her boyfriend she died with that fateful night in Paris in 1997.

How’s that for a salacious headline? The two gorgeous blond actresses star in a controversial new film, Two Mothers. It made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The Anne Fontaine-directed flick recently released its first international trailer and boy, is it sensual.

Two Mothers is a gripping tale of love, lust and the power of friendship that charts the unconventional and passionate affairs of two lifelong friends Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) who fall in love with each other’s sons played by James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom) and Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse). 29-year-old Samuel looks especially smoking in the film. WOOF. The film is based on British writer Doris Lessing’s Nobel Prize-winning The Grandmothers: Four Short Novels.

“These are two great female characters full of complexities who are dealing with that midlife point. It’s definitely an unconventional love story,” explains Naomi Watts to E! News. “But it’s not just about sex and their ages,” she continued. “It’s about this kind of unit that has worked so well together and it’s the end of their school life. They’re about to head off to university. The nest is emptying.”

It may not just be about sex, but there’s plenty of cougar action. This is certainly a recipe for disaster. I can’t wait to see how this emotional tug-of-war between love and lust unfolds. It definitely won’t be pretty. I’m sure Freud’s psychoanalytic theory Oedipus complex somewhat applies here. Check out the international trailer below. Be forewarned there’s a brief booty moment.

Every now and then, Zach Galifianakis does a hilariously awkward faux interview segment on Funny Or Die with celebrities and this week, the actor/comedian takes on some of the biggest names in Hollywood that are in the running for Oscars this season in Between Two Ferns: Oscar Buzz Edition.

The actors he interviews include: Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts, and Sally Field.

If you’ve every scene an episode of Between Two Ferns, you’ll know that these actors are pretty much walking into a trap and are not walking into a conventional interview. Galifianakis doesn’t give them the respect their used to by other interviewers and asks some really embarrassing and off topic questions. Hathaway shows up drunk for her interview, Jennifer Lawrence puts him in his place, and Bradley Cooper and him have a huge fight. Watch the hilarious interviews below.
