Based on the best-selling novel by S.J. Watson of the same name, Nicole Kidman plays a woman suffering from anterograde amnesia. She wakes every day with no knowledge of who she is. She tries to reconstruct her memories from a journal she has been keeping. With the help of a handy physician she eventually gets to the truth… or does she?

Colin Firth plays Kidman’s potentially untrustworthy husband. Mark Strong, Anne-Marie Duff and Charlie Gardner round out the cast. The Rowan Joffe-directed film hits theaters on September 12. Before I Go To Sleep already looks so much better than anything the Aussie actress has done in years. Check out the trailer below.

You gotta love Colin Firth. I picture him to be a very charming lovely humorous man in real life. His recent interview indicates I’m correct with my assumption.

The 53-year-old actor has exited from the upcoming film Paddington by quoting Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous term “concious uncoupling.” Firth was to voice the iconic loveable bear.

“It’s been bittersweet to see this delightful creature take shape and come to the sad realization that he simply doesn’t have my voice,” Colin told Empire Online. “After a period of denial we’ve chosen conscious uncoupling. I’ve had the joy of seeing most of the film and it’s going to be quite wonderful. I still feel rather protective of this bear and I’m pestering them all with suggestions for finding a voice worthy of him.”

With Paddington now temporarily silenced, producers are on the hunt to find a new voice. This sort of thing isn’t uncommon. Scarlett Johansson famously replaced Samantha Morton in Spike Jonze’s Her as did Modern Family’s Ty Burrell with Robert Downey Jr. in DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It appears though that Firth’s departure is an amicable and mutual one.

Nicole Kidman must’ve been responsible for moving an impressive amount of shoes for Jimmy Choo. The shoe designer once again taps Nicole Kidman to front an ad campaign. Photographed by iconic Sølve Sundsbø, Kidman looks absolutely stunning in the print media and accompanying video for Spring/Summer 2014. Botox does this body good. The 46-year-old hasn’t aged a bit since her Moulin Rouge days and perhaps even before that.

“I really enjoyed working with Sølve, he is very creative but he is decisive and methodical in his direction,” Nicole said. “It was fun to shoot new and surprising perspectives, it felt a little bit daring, dangerous. I loved the minimal styling and how the shoes and bags became like a sensual second skin to me.”

The picture above is the tamest out of the trio of images. The others feature Nicole barely clothed with either a handbag covering her breasts or duct tape in place to ensure a blazer stays put. My favorite pair of shoes showcased are the grey gladiator-inspired heels in the last pic. Those things are sick. Check them out below.

In addition to moonlighting as a fashion model, Kidman is still one busy actress. This year alone, she has three films out, Grace of Monaco, Before I Go to Sleep and Paddington. She’s also filming Queen of the Desert which is scheduled for 2015.

In: Donovan, Movies

Princess Diana isn’t the only deceased royal heading to the big screen this Fall. Grace Kelly is also the subject of an upcoming biopic. Grace of Monaco follows the Hollywood actress’ fairytale marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco during the principality’s 1960s tax dispute with France. The film has been slammed by Monaco’s royal family as fiction.

Stepping into the princess’ shoes is Nicole Kidman. Playing the role of her royal prince charming is Tim Roth. Directing the clip is Olivier Dahan who previously tackled the Edith Piaf biopic La Vie en Rose. Rounding out the cast are Paz Vega as Maria Callas, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Alfred Hitchcock, Parker Posey as Madge Tivey-Faucon and André Penvern as Charles de Gaulle. Grace of Monaco opens in limited release in the United States on Nov. 27, 2013. Check out the gorgeous teaser trailer below.

It’s seems just like yesterday when Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman adopted little baby Connor. All grown up now, this celebrity kid is hoping to blaze his own trail. The 18-year-old has built up a resume as a DJ, playing parties with Nervo and Steve Aoki. Ready to take on the music industry, Connor recently debuted his first single “Closer To Heaven” which features former Metro Station front man Mason Musso on vocals with Cruise producing the EDM track. Give his debut a listen below and weigh in afterward.

“I was trying to make an upbeat commercial dance music track,” Connor Cruise explained to Billboard. “When I made the track I had Mason’s voice in mind the whole time. When it came time to put a vocal on it, having him was perfect.”

Nicole Kidman’s Stunning Jimmy Choo Ad Campaign

In: Donovan, TV Shows

She’s sporting her signature crimson hair color, but the angular bob is something new and looks absolutely heavenly on Nicole Kidman in newly-released images for her endorsement deal for Jimmy Choo. The 46-year-old Aussie has fronted campaigns for Chanel No. 5 and Omega watches previously. Now, she’s shilling high-priced footwear and eyewear for the London-based designer’s Autumn/Winter 2013 ad campaign.

“I really enjoyed being able to play a role that was strong, sexy and in control,” says Nicole Kidman in a statement. “I got into a relationship with the photographer and Mikael [Jansson] is very intuitive, he knows what I am thinking and feeling and is able to translate it through the camera.”

Kidman definitely had a connection with photographer Mikael Jansson. She hasn’t looked this stunningly glamorous in a while. My favorite look has her in a trench holding a leather clutch while wearing scarlet cage heels. FIERCE. Check out all the images and fashion film which were shot in Nashville below. It took place the day after her husband, Keith Urban, hosted We’re All For The Hall- a benefit for the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Ellen DeGeneres just pulled an Oprah Winfrey and surprised her ENTIRE audience with a free trip to Australia! The audience will be joining her later this year when she films her show on the other side of the globe. The trip was made possible with Swisse Wellness and Qantas as the sponsors.

Appropriately, Nicole Kidman was the special guest of the day and before the big surprise, the two were talking about Australia and what Kidman recommends Ellen do there. There’s one spot in Australia that Kidman joked is magical because she believes she got pregnant there. Then Ellen joked, “If i get pregnant it’s a real miracle!” LOL!

Ellen then mentioned that Australia Day is also her birthday and on her birthday she likes to give presents. So, she led the audience to believe that one lucky person would get the chance to win a trip to Australia. She then dropped the bomb that the entire audience is going and the confetti was let loose. The reactions are my favorite part: Jumping up and down, screaming, crying… the whole nine yards. Watch the funny and heartwarming clip below.

2013 Golden Globes Nominations Announced

In: Donovan, Movies, TV Shows

Not only did the Hollywood Foreign Press Association debut the first promo for the 70th Golden Globes featuring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but they also revealed their nominations. Leading the pack with seven nods is Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Not surprising, given all the other Oscar precursor love. On the flip side, Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained shockingly earned five nominations including one for Leonardo DiCaprio.

If you think about it, DiCaprio along with a few other out of left field nods aren’t too earth-shattering given that the HFPA have a reputation of being HUGE star f*ckers. They love to honor A-list celebs in hopes that they’ll attend, making their event the most star-studded one of the awards season.

On the TV front, the HFPA have a couple of head-scratchers as well. Mad Men for the first time isn’t nominated but NBC’s polarizing Smash is. Granted they’re competing in different categories, but still. The Debra Messing musical beat out Parks & Recreations, Suburgatory, Community and a whole whackload of other worthy sitcoms. Fans of ABC’s Nashville will be elated that both Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton were recognized. While Modern Family dominates the Emmys, only Sofia Vergara and Eric Stonestreet earned nominations in the acting categories.

Without further ado, check out all of the 2013 Golden Globe nominations below which were revealed by presenters Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms this morning. You’ll also find my commentary for most of the major movie categories and how they differ from the recently announced SAG nominations. Be sure to leave your comments afterward. I would to hear your thoughts on the HFPA’s nods.
