Free Download: Emma Watson For Wonderland

Posted by Lilysowl On April - 6 - 2014

Emma Watson - Wonderland Magazine.We previously reported that Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) had been a guest editor for one of the recent issues of UK’s Wonderland Magazine.  It included her interview with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.

In honor of the UK release of her latest film Noah with Russell Crowe and directed by Darren Aronofsky, Wonderland Magazine has allowed Emma Watson fans to download her section – which specifically pertained to the film -  for free.

The section begins with a brief note to the reader from Watson herself.  There is a sweet, young, black and white picture of her beside the note.  The first part of the section is an interview of the Harry Potter actress herself, conducted by one of her personal friends.  The next part is her interview with Mr. Aronofsky.  Following his interview is the one Watson did with the film’s costume designer, Michael Wilkinson.  Watson also interviewed the film’s cinematographer Matty Libatique.  That was followed by her interview with the songwriter for the film Patti Smith.  Her interview with fellow actor Logan Lerman was saved for last in the Noah part of her section of the issue.  Lerman had starred with her in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  He is best known for his role as “Percy Jackson” in the two Percy Jackson and the Olympians films.

Intermingled with the interviews are lovely photos of Watson as well as the ones of her from the film Noah.

Trailer: Emma Watson in The Bling Ring

Posted by Dijares On April - 24 - 2013

Emma Watson on Bling Ring setA theatrical trailer for The Bling Ring has been released.  Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) stars in the film portraying a young American girl who wants to be part of the Hollywood glamour and will do nearly anything to get there.  It’s based loosely on the Bling Ring robberies that took place in Southern California.

“She’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realized that I hated her,” said Emma to British GQ about her character, Nikki.

She took the role because she felt the character portrayed some of the qualities that she’s opposed to.  ”When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it. The character is everything that I felt strongly against.” she said.

The film hits theatres June 14th.

Update Potter Bolt: Frankenstein, Apes, Cinderella, More!

Posted by Dijares On February - 28 - 2013

Potter BoltWell, it’s been a little while since I’ve done a Potter Bolt, but I think the news coming out today about some of our favorite Harry Potter stars deems a Bolt necessary.

First off, Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is in final negotiations for the role of Igor in a new rendition of Frankenstein, says Variety. The film is expected to start filming this fall, after his run on the West End in London with the play Cripple of Irishmaan.

Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) will have the lead role in the new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  The film, where Oldman will be the leader of the human colony, is set 15 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in which Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) starred in.

Speaking of Felton… he’s signed on for the Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con. This con takes place March 22-24. Get more info here.

UPDATE: It is being reported that Emma Watson is looking at signing on for the title  role in Dinsey’s live action film of Cinderella!  Cate Blanchett is already signed on to play the role of the evil step-mother. Production is set to start this fall in London.

Emma Watson in US Edition of Glamour Magazine

Posted by Lilysowl On October - 14 - 2012

Emma Watson - October 2012 issue of GlamourWe previously reported that Emma Watson (Hermione in the Harry Potter films) would be on the front cover of the US and UK editions of Glamour magazine’s October issue to promote her latest film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Thanks to one of our HPP fans, we have scans of the interview with Emma Watson from the US edition of the magazine in our photo gallery.

In the interview, Watson mentions how her character Sam in Perks is quite a different school girl from Hermione, other than the fact that Sam is an American:

Glamour: Your character, Sam, is rebellious–she experiments with drugs and has quite a sexual history.  I’ve read that in real life, you’re pretty straitlaced.

EW: Oh yes, Sam’s real.  She has insecurities and a past.  She’s very human, and that’s what drew me to play her.  There are just so many teenage roles that don’t have very much to do with what it’s actually like to be a teenager.

Watson confessed that she did cry a lot upon seeing herself on-screen in Perks during her first view of the film because “It was a pretty emotional experience!” Yet, she did have the stamina to persuade studio executives to fund the film, even though they were reluctant to do so due to “the difficult subject matter” in the story.

“It felt very empowering to be able to get something made that I really believed in.”

The actress also confirms that she is in the middle of filming Noah with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.  And she admits to being “obsessed” with Lena Dunham, the star and creator of HBO’s Girls.

I like the “Five Things” list which is five things she can do now that she is no longer filming the Harry Potter series and the five things she can’t do.  One of the five things she can do is:  “Find time to watch really bad TV with my family.” One of the five things she can’t do is “Yell Latin at people”.

Also, there are quite a few interesting photos of Watson in the article.  She is actually wearing cat ears in one of them, which seems appropriate for the upcoming October holiday of  Halloween.

Thanks to Suze for sending us the article!
