PATRICK WILSON AND ROSE BYRNE IN CREEPY HORROR "INSIDIOUS". DIANE KRUGER JOINS GERARD DEPARDIEU IN HISTORICAL DRAMA "FAREWELL, MY QUEEN"

If you love period films you will like FAREWELL, MU QUEEN, a film about the final days of Marie Antoinette (played by Diane
Kruger
whom we have watched in TROY and INGLORIOUS BASTERDS and who will also be joined by French veteran Gerard Depardieu). The story will be told by a woman (Lea Seydoux) looking back 30 years, to when it was her job to read books aloud to Marie Antoinette. Her status as courtier makes her the best kind of narrator - both an insider and an observer of the royals. She describes the final days before revolution engulfs the palace with insight and surprising slices of humor. Some part will seem almost like satire, as the indulged inhabitants of Versailles cling to the privileges that have defined their now-threatened lives: royals are reluctant to leave the palace without proper traveling attire, courtiers try to flee while lugging heavy possessions.
Here's an unusual cast for a horror film: super talented Patrick Wilson and lovely Rose Byrne star in INSIDIOUS a film which will premiere next April and will center on a young family that makes the terrifying discovery that the body of their comatose boy has become a magnet for malevolent entities, while his consciousness lies trapped in the dark and insidious realm known as The Further. You can check out the creepy teaser bellow:

  2. Hi Dezz,
    I like the idea of having a inside view of this period. I like historical period films, if they are done well.

    Clip is kind of freaky, time will tell. I loved
    Patrick Wilson in "The Phantom"~

    Hope you are doing something fun to ring in the New Year!

  6. Insidious has a very intriguing premise. Love seeing titles w/ a word that most people have to look up! :)

  7. Oooh I like this duo, too bad it's a horror flick so most likely I'll skip it. Rose Byrne should be in more movies!

  9. Insidious sounds pretty damn good. Creepiness is my cup of tea, I'll be sure to check it out!

  10. Diane Kruger redeemed herself in Inglorious Basterds. She was as vacuous and empty as Orlando Bloom in Troy. Should be interesting to see her as Marie A.

    Insidious looks interesting, but I'm a huge horror fan and they'll have to do more than have some guy draw creepy pictures to keep my attention. I like the premise though, a bit reminiscent of Dark City. And there's Patrick Wilson, of course. He could stand still and hold my interest. ;)

    Happy New Year!!! May 2011 bring you many blessings and successes.

  12. @Flixy
    they should both be in much much more films :)

    @Jamie
    do you drink creepiness with sugar and milk? :P

    @Melissa
    yep, Diane really was bad in TROY as was Orly Bloom, and Brad Pitt. The three of them basically ruined the whole movie.
    Happy New Year to you as well, Melissa!

  15. I saw this clip a few months back and thought, "What? Creepy!!"

    after watching it again...that's still all I can think! haha. I agree with flixchatter...it's an interesting cast..just too bad it's horror. Usually horror lends itself to less character development. We'll see.

    Happy New Year!

  17. I have always had a fascination with Marie Antoinette. So, I can't wait until that movie comes out. Also, the male lead (forget spelling his French name) is one of my favorite actors.

    yep, those two amazing actors could've been used a bit better, but nobody asked us about it :(

    @Suzy
