Olga Kurylenko stars in Friday's big-budget sci-fi movie Oblivion alongside Tom Cruise. Besides starring as Tom's leading lady, Olga also got to play Ben Affleck's love interest in her Terrence Malick film, To the Wonder, which came out earlier this month. It has been a busy time for Olga, who largely became known to US audiences in 2008's Bond film Quantum of Solace. She filled us in on the busy time in her life at a press day in NYC yesterday, opening up about working with Tom and Ben, the highlights of her press tour for Oblivion, and more — click through to read highlights from Olga.
Whether you're a sports fanatic or an indie movie lover or you just want to see True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard shirtless on the big screen, there's a movie for you hitting theaters this weekend. Check out pictures of the Jackie Robinson story, 42; Terrence Malick's latest, To the Wonder; tech thriller Disconnect; and last, but (maybe) not least, Scary Movie 5. Which will you be seeing?
Ben Affleck caught up with Rachel McAdams on the red carpet at the LA premiere of their newest film, To the Wonder. Rachel wore a black lace dress as she greeted Ben and their costar Olga Kurylenko, who took a break from her promotional duties for Oblivion to attend the event. Plenty of other stars turned out for the movie's debut, including Homeland's Morena Baccarin, Zachary Levi, and How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor. During the premiere, Ben discussed how he and Jennifer Garner balance their busy schedules with their family life. Jennifer recently revealed that she is happy to work less for Ben, but now that she's got new projects on the horizon Ben is picking up more home duties. He said, "I'm preparing myself to take on some more of the burden [at home]. She's got a couple of movies coming up, so it's going to be a little Mr. Mom action, and I'm going to get back in the ring and we're going to see if I still have it."
Rachel has been spending her time in LA working on her press duties for the film, which hits theaters on Friday, April 12. She stopped by Disneyland with her friends and family earlier this month and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, where she revealed that she got hallucinations after buying pot in her native Toronto.
In Terrence Malick's To the Wonder, Ben Affleck has the love of two beauties: Rachel McAdams and Olga Kurylenko, though the trailer doesn't give you much more than that. Javier Bardem plays a priest who provides a voice-over about love, as you see Affleck and his alternating love interests frolic and fight. Malick's characters (whose names are never spoken in the trailer or film) fall in and out of love amid gorgeous American and French backdrops of fields and nature, and you're free to make your own conclusions about the story.
I saw To the Wonder at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, and have to note that although Bardem is featured prominently in the trailer, his role in the film is brief, while McAdams's part is also much smaller than the trailer makes it seem (the focus is on the relationship between Affleck and Kurylenko). One thing the preview does represent accurately is the lack of dialogue; there is scarcely more than what's in the trailer. Still, To the Wonder is visually stunning, and if you've seen a Malick film before, you probably know what to expect. The movie will be released on April 12, and until then, you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Ben Affleck had two upcoming movies showing at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. We already shared our review of Argo, and now BuzzSugar editor Shannon Vestal is revealing her first impressions of To the Wonder. Hear her thoughts about Ben and costars Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem, and Olga Kurylenko in this movie review from Toronto!
Canadian fans gave Rachel McAdams a warm welcome at last night's To the Wonder TIFF premiere. She stepped out in a lovely green gown and was joined on the carpet by costar Olga Kurylenko, also wearing a similar emerald hue. Olga and Rachel were on hand representing the ensemble cast that also includes Ben Affleck and Javier Bardem. Rachel's boyfriend, Michael Sheen, also landed a part in the film; however, director Terrence Malick cut out his role in addition to Rachel Weisz's and Amanda Peet's. This isn't the last premiere of the week for Rachel; her dramatic thriller Passion is also screening throughout the week at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. We're on the scene, so be sure to follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates, news, and photos from the festival.
