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 celebrated range of work has earned her the triple crown of acting - an Academy Award for "The Queen", a Tony Award for "The Audience" and numerous Emmys, including for her iconic performance in "Prime Suspect". The Helen Mirren Archives chronicles Miss Mirren's life and career from the early days to the recent with information, pictures and video clips. Enjoy your stay and check back soon.
You won’t believe it, but the Easter Bunny has dropped some very rare clips to the new video archive. In best Eastern tradition, you’ll have to search for the new clips, but I give you some hints. Since most of the new additions are some the 60s to 80s, you’ll find them on the last pages of each category. I could also imagine there’s a new section in the career category called Miscellaneous performances, featuring videos from “Troilus and Cressida”, “Teeth ‘n’ Smiles” and “The Duchess of Malfi”. Enjoy the new clips!
Last week, the promotional tour for “Collateral Beauty” moved to Europe with several appearances on British talkshows and press junkets. Meanwhile, other American outlets have broadcast interviews with Helen that were filmed during the US promotion. Have a look at the new videos added below. Since this will probably be the last update of the year, I’d like to wish all visitors of the Helen Mirren Archives a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Universal Pictures has released the trailer for the highly-anticipated eighth Fast & Furious movie! On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global title of all time, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: The Fate of the Furious. Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family. For The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar winner Helen Mirren. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and produced by returning producers Neal H. Moritz, Michael Fottrell and Diesel. The Fate of the Furious opens in theaters on April 14, 2017.
Collateral Beauty’s promotion continues with a great batch of videos and new production stills. In David Frankel’s drama, Will Smith questions the universe by writing to Love, Time and Death after retreating from life after a tragedy. Receiving unexpected answers, he begins to see how these things interlock and how even loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.
The new clips include a featurette and a making of, two promotinal interviews with Helen – one from the set and one from the press junket – another press junket with Will Smith and a first clip from the film. The new production still feature a different look at Mirren’s character Brigitte and also include co-stars Keira Knightley, Jacob Latimore and Michael Pena. Enjoy the new additions.
The US promotion for “Collateral Beauty” is in full swing and Helen Mirren has been a guest on “The View”, “CBS News” and “CBS This Morning” (the latter two basically did the same interview) for the film’s theatrical release on December 16. Additionally, lots of promotional featurettes and stills have been published, as you can see in the next update.
First, clips from all recent talkshow appearances have been added to our brand-new video archive. Then, pictures from the “Collateral Beauty” press conference in New York, the taping of “Popcorn with Peter Travers” and a luncheon in honor of Helen’s AARP magazine cover have been added to the photo gallery.
