COLIN FIRTH SATURDAY: TRAILER FOR HIS "GAMBIT" WITH CAMERON DIAZ! COLIN IN "ARTHUR NEWMAN" WITH EMILY BLUNT, "SKINNY AND THE CAT" WITH CATE BLANCHETT, "THE RAILWAY MAN" WITH NICOLE KIDMAN, "BRIDGET JONES' BABY" WITH RENE ZELLWEGER

In the honour of the trailer release for his new film GAMBIT which you can see below, we shall dedicate today's post to British Oscar winner Colin Firth and his future projects. First he has ARTHUR NEWMAN film which was shown in Toronto Film Festival and in which he and Emily Blunt  play two people who, trying to escape their past, move into an abandoned house together and take on the identities of the absent owners: elderly newlyweds, a high-roller and his Russian lady, among others, but in the end discover that they love each other's true identities best. Colin's main project for 2013 will be a sweeping period drama THE RAILWAY MAN about a 
soldier’s battle to overcome his torture while he was a Japanese prisoner of war and how his wife helped him in the battle by setting up a mission back to the Bridge on the River Kwai, where her husband confronted the interpreter at his interrogations. Nicole Kidman plays his wife and Jeremy Irvine plays young version of Firth's character alongside Stellan Skarsgard and Sam Reid. Another charming duo will be Colin Firth and Cate Blanchett in SKINNY AND CAT, which depicts American photographer Margaret Bourke-White's marriage to novelist Erskine Caldwell in the late 1930s.The 2014 film will be directed by Barbra Streisand! Somewhere along the way, Firth should also join Rene Zellweger and Hugh Grant in BRIDGET JONES' BABY recounting Bridget's life in her 40s!

GAMBIT TRAILER
The video I have for you today is the first trailer for action comedy GAMBIT which features a rather strange combination of Colin Firth
and Cameron Diaz in the cast, alongside British actor Alan Rickman and Stanley Tucci. Opening in Britain later this November, the story follows a private art curator Harry Deane (Colin Firth) who devises a finely crafted scheme to con England's richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Alan Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. The film is directed by Michael Hoffman who helmed Leo
Tolstoi film THE LAST STATION with Helen Mirren, Christopher Plummer and James McAvoy. And as you will see everybody is naked in the trailer - Rickman is full nude, Firth is pantless and Cameron is in her lingerie :)

  1. Wow, you are posting early today!

    I do love me some Colin Firth. He's very handsome in that black long coat. Ooh, and that film with Cate Blanchett is something I'd really be interested in. I like the subject matter and the combination of actors. :))

    1. Yep :) When I'm posting earlier, it usually means that I've finished my work on the latest book and have a few days free until I start working on the new one :)

      Yep, that one caught my attention too, since you know how much I love me Blanchett, but isn't it weird that Streisand is directing it? Has she directed anything else before?

    2. Of course she has directed. She did that Prince of Tides movie and Yentl. Can't think of any others, but she has directed before. She usually gets a lot of criticism for being a bossy woman, but how else do you get the work done?

    3. ah, yes, I totally forgot about PRINCE OF TIDES, that film made me fall asleep like ten times or something. Yes, yes, yes, I do remember her directing job now.
      I like bossy people too :)

  3. I do like Colin Firth nom nom nom.

    The Railway Man looks to be an interesting story, so count me in on that.

    On to the Gambit. Alan Rickman is a fine actor and of course Colin is delicious. Now I have to wonder how in Gods name they tolerated Cameron. The woman sets my teeth on edge. One dimensional acting and a boor to boot.

      They're such a strange combo with Cameron, aren't they? And she's such a biach in private life too, have you heard how horrid she was towards Jessica Biel when she heard she is marrying Justin Timberlake?

    2. Really? And here I thought she was a sweet girl ~

    3. Yep, when she heard he's marrying Jessica she told him over the press that he can change his mind and return to her. Minx!

  4. Well you already know I'm super excited for this, but too bad the movie is pushed back for a whole year!! Still can't stand Cameron, but hey, there's Firth AND Rickman together, woo hoo!
