Sailing past early delays in shipbuilding, the new Scenic Eclipse was christened on Manhattan’s Pier 88 this week – with prestigious star power. Ship Godmother Dame Helen Mirren swung the ceremonial champagne bottle to bestow good luck and safe travels for the vessel and those who sail with her. Dame Helen admitted to having never cruised before, though she grew up sailing aboard small vessels in a small English town on the Thames River. Now, having christened the Eclipse, she is keen to voyage to the Arctic or Antarctica, especially aboard such an environmentally sound vessel. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery, alongside two news segments from The Today Show in Australia and KTLA 5. Can I say that I still find it mind-boggling and disrespectful that people – journalists, people from the press – sit down with one of the greatest actresses of our time, and use that time to address *that* Bikini picture that was taken over 10 years ago. The cheapest kind of journalism – and the reason why paparazzi still exist, when their instrusion of pricacy receives such media buzz and constant recognition. And every other outlet picks it up, year in year out – well done. Not sorry for the rant, enjoy the new pictures and your weekend 🙂

Helen Mirren makes for a thrilling Catherine the Great. In the upcoming, eponymous HBO miniseries, the Oscar winner plays the 18th-century Russian leader with ruthless panache, cutting down all the men attempting to usurp her throne. “It would be a terrible mistake to go against me,“ she warns in the trailer above. The project was apparently kick-started when Mirren said in an interview that she would one day like to play the monarch, who ruled during Russia’s Golden Era and had a notoriously rocky marriage to Peter III. Producers David Thompson and Charles Pattinson heard the word and quickly made it so. Now Mirren hopes the four-part miniseries will help people see Catherine in a new light. “History doesn’t like very successful, very powerful women,” Mirren told the Independent. “They have to drag them down, and history tried to drag Catherine down. I hope we are going to reinstate her reputation as the incredible leader that she was.” “I’m not saying she didn’t have her faults,” the actor added. “She made mistakes, and finished up quite tyrannical. But she was originally a reformer and a Westernizer, if you like, of this vast, vast country.” The four-part series also stars Jason Clarke as Grigory Potemkin, the military commander who became Catherine’s lover. Catherine the Great will debut on October 21 at 10 p.m. on HBO.

Helen Mirren was a surprise guest at Friday’s Combate Tahoe at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harvey’s in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, applauding bantamweight champion Gustavo Lopez, who unleashed a right hook from hell to knock Joey Ruquet out on his feet, the challenger falling slowly to the canvas in a frightening manner just one minute, 45 seconds into the bout. Lopez retained his title with the vicious first-round KO in the main event. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

Over the last couple of weeks I found quite some new material on last year’s “The Leisure Seeker”, so time for a proper update. While the film didn’t make a lasting impression with theatergoers due to its limited release, it has some kind of second-life since its DVD release. Videos and screencaptures from the making of and an interview with Helen and Donald Sutherland have been added, alongside additional production stills and on-set pictures. Also – I have no idea how this has passed by without any notice – Helen promoted the film’s release on The Today Show in January 2018. A full video and screencaptures from this appearance have been added as well. If you haven’t seen the film yet, it’s highly recommended.
