MARGOT ROBBIE TO DO DEATH DEFYING STUNTS AS 'QUEEN OF THE AIR'! 'THE GREAT GILLY HOPKINS' TRAILER WITH KATHY BATES,GLENN CLOSE, OCTAVIA SPENCER

MARGOT ROBBIE TO JOIN
CIRCUS AS 'QUEEN OF THE AIR'
After running through jungle with Alexander Skarsgard in Tarzan this summer, it seems Margot Robbie will now be flying through air as well! As 'Deadline' reports today she has taken the lead role in period set biopic QUEEN OF THE AIR based on Dean N. Jensen’s 2013 book of the same name!
The movie will bring us the story of famed trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel and her tragic romance with fellow acrobat Alfredo Codona. The German born Leitzel became a sensation in the 1920s for her death defying stunts, eventually entering into a famously volatile love affair and marriage with Codona. She died tragically in 1931 during a live performance when her rigging snapped; Codona died 6 years later in a shocking Long beach, California set murder suicide.

'GREAT GILLY HOPKINS' TRAILER
WITH KATHY BATES, GLENN CLOSE AND OCTAVIA SPENCER
The first trailer has been released for the movie adaptation of Katherine Peterson's novel THE GREAT GILLY HOPKINS out this Autumn in cinemas!  Attitude's got a new name in twelve year old Gilly Hopkins (Sophie NĂ©lisse) - a brilliant, brash, and totally unmanageable foster kid who's determined to alienate herself from every foster family she's placed with - until there's no choice but to let her reunite with her real mom (Julia Stiles) in San Francisco. When she's placed with Maime Trotter (Kathy Bates), the strangest foster mom yet, Gilly is convinced she'll make short work of her - until to Gilly's surprise and the surprise of everyone around her, except for Trotter, she starts to love her. But then her new home is invaded by the arrival of her biological grandmother (Glenn Close). Will Gilly have to leave the only family she's ever loved? Octavia Spencer and Billy Magnussen also star.

  2. I would like to see both of these!

    I have always been nervous watching people do things without nets under them because anything can happen. Sounds like Lillian lived a life on the edge! Yikes!

    1. they're crazy people, and they need psychological help, says a psychologist :) Really, a need to do something that extreme usually speaks of some deeper issue within the psyche

  3. Margot Robbie is gorgeous. Whatever role she's in, she plays them well and she naturally morphs into those characters like a chameleon. She also goes into challenging roles and this one would be one of those. I can't imagine the training she would need, to do the most, if not all of the stunts.

  4. I think I bought the Gilly book earlier this year but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. She was blowing bubble gum on the cover. That trailer was nice and heartwarming. Margot has gotten her gorgeous self into quite an interesting movie role. Hopefully the movie turns out well.
