For the past six decades, Helen Mirren's career has successfully shifted from a respected theatre actress to an iconic fixture on British television to a beloved Hollywood star. Her range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Oscar for The Queen, a Tony for The Audience, numerous Emmys - including for her iconic performance in Prime Suspect - and an appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and video clips.

The Weinstein Company has an early Christmas present for all Helen Mirren fans: The first theatrical trailer for “Woman in Gold”. Helen stars as Maria Altmann, a former Jewish socialite who fled the Nazis during World War II. She left behind her home and her belongings – including a portrait of her aunt by the artist Gustav Klimt. Now, that painting is famous worldwide (and as a poster, adorns countless college dorm rooms), and Maria wants it back. She enlists a lawyer (Ryan Reynolds) to help her fight the Austrian government to restore the portrait to its rightful owner. Not only does Maria want a memento of her favorite aunt, she wants justice for the atrocities committed by the Nazis. “Woman in Gold” also stars Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmes, Charles Dance, and Elizabeth McGovern, and opens in theaters April 3.
