Yesterday, Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford have attended the South Coast Plaza 50th Anniversary Gala celebration on Monday night. The festivities took place at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, where Henry’s widow Elizabeth Segerstrom hosted a concert by the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, presented by The Philharmonic Society of Orange County. Conducted by maestro Valery Gergiev, a close friend of Henry Segerstrom’s, the program featured Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Piano Concerto No. 3” performed by Denis Matsuev. The event drew art world luminaries including Ralph Fiennes, Plácido Domingo, Frank Gehry and Bill Viola, who were seated in the president’s circle with Elizabeth Segerstrom and Princess Michael of Kent. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.

Welcome to the new version of The Helen Mirren Archives! The previous layout has become synonymous for the site due to it’s time being online and I really loved how the site has grown with this look. But with all the recent announcements of new projects and the upcoming releases of “The Leisure Seeker” and “Winchester”, I wanted to give the site a fresh new face. It has become quite a colorful new face as well 🙂 I hope you enjoy it. The photo gallery and video archive have received matching layouts as well and the career section has received a new feature, on which I’ve worked for a while now: the press section. On each film page, you will find a link to the press section in the sub-menu. Let’s take The Queen as an example: The new sub-site gives you a great overlook on the international press tours for the film, starting with the Venice Film Festival. There are radio interviews to listen to, talkshow appearances to watch and articles from all countries in the world. The wealth of material depends on how a film was promoted around the world – not every press tour was as extensive as Woman in Gold, for example, but there will be great discoveries, especially on her work in the 1980s and 1990s. So, head over to the career page, select a film and then simply click the press coverage to launch the new sites. I hope you enjoy browsing them as much as I do.

CBS Films has released the first teaser trailer for Helen Mirren’s spooky “Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built.” The supernatural thriller is based on the life of eccentric heiress Sarah Winchester, who was convinced that she and her family were haunted by the souls killed by the family’s infamous rifle. Her real-life obsession led to the round-the-clock construction of an enormous 160-room mansion in San Jose, California, designed to keep these evil spirits at bay. The Winchester Mystery House still stands today in northern California and has been named one of the “Most Haunted Places in the World” by Time Magazine. The Winchester Mystery House is one of California’s original and most popular historic attractions. Since opening to the public in 1923, the house has welcomed nearly 12 million people from around the world. Following a medium’s advice, Sarah built a massive house in Northern California to appease the spirits. For the next 38 years, she never stopped building believing that if she continued, she would live forever, and if she stopped, she would die, which she eventually did in 1922 at age 82. The trailer can be also found in the video archive while screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

Update and words courtesy JoBlo: The last word we brought you guys on the upcoming Spierig Brothers (“Jigsaw”) haunted house flick “Winchester” starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke was when we told you the film was moving up its release date and changing its title. Yes, “Winchester” will now be known as “Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built” and will be released on February 2nd, 2018. Below you will find an all-new still from the film featuring Mirren and Clarke and below that you can check out the film’s teaser poster which boats the killer tagline “Terror is Building”. Classic. Total classic. “Winchester” is written and directed by Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig and stars Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, and Angus Sampson.

Inspired by true events. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester, (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren) heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. Constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters…
