Helen Mirren was a vision in blue at tonight’s opening night of the 76th Cannes Film Festival in France. For the “Jeanne du Barry” screening, the L’Oréal ambassador opted to arrive in a monochromatic look that was bound to turn heads. She paired her pale blue, off-the-shoulder gown with an undeniably blue head of hair. Pictures from the opening night premiere have been added to the photo gallery.

Yesterday, the first official premiere for “Fast X” was held at The Colosseum in Rome, Italy. The choice of the Italian capital as the first city in the world where the 10th installment in the “Fast & Furious” saga would screen honored the fact that some of the film’s most high-octane action scenes were shot in Rome and its surrounding cities. The film releases theatrically worldwide next week, so I’m sure there’ll be much promotion in the coming week. Also added is a press junket interview with Helen that was conducted in Rome on Friday as well, and a lovely behind-the-scenes featurette on the film, in which Vin Diesel and Helen Mirren are interviewed on the set during filming in July of last year.
Some fantastic pictures and behind-the-scene video has been released for Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren’s upcoming Emmy Magazine cover story (on newsstands May 04, 2023). In the video, they got cheecky on what they are most grateful for in the modern world. “What have we got now that we didn’t have in 1923?” Mirren pondered while sitting next to her co-star. “Oh you know what I’m very appreciative of? Spanx,” she said as Ford laughed heartily. “And I appreciate your loaning them to me on the occasional basis,” he teased. Pictures and screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
Earlier today, Helen Mirren made a surprise visit on “The Drew Barrymore Show” to promote “Shazam! Fury of the Gods”, which is still in theatrical release, as well as the already released “1923”, for which she is currently on a FYC promotional tour in hindsight of 2023’s upcoming awards season. Clips and screencaptures have been added to the archives. An interview with Entertainment Weekly’s The Awardist has been added to the video archive as well.
In a movie year that brings Helen fans characters as varied as Greek goddess Hespera, gangster matriarch Queenie Shaw, and Israel’s Prime Minister Golda Meier, what could probably add to this rather wild range? It’s Barbie: As heard in the teaser trailer for Greta Gerwig’s live action spectacle starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Goslin, Helen has been officially announced to narrate the film, which will hit theaters on July 21, 2023. She has also received her own character poster, alongside newly announced cast members Will Ferrell, Issa Rae and Dua Lipa. The synopsis is still kept under wraps. The posters can be found in the photo gallery.
