Helen Mirren is having an Italian Summer for all of us – and a very busy, extended weekend. After attending Saturday’s ORA! Film Fest (see previous update and find new pictures in the gallery), Mirren was seen on Sunday’s Lecce-Bologna Match at the Via del Mare stadion. And today, she was a special guest at the Università del Salento, where a new promotional spot for the university with her participation was released. Pictures and videos have been added to the photo gallery.

As previously reported, Helen Mirren attended Saturday’s opening night of Puglia’s new ORA! Film Fest, attending a Q&A with colleagues Matthew Modine, Marisa Tomei and John Turturro, who will be all honored during the festival’s run this week.

Since being a frequent resident and visitor to Puglia, it feels only natural that Helen Mirren has been announced to open the first ever Now! Fest, an international film festival dedicated to the environment, sustainability and social justice. It’s scheduled in Monopoli, Puglia from 3 to 7 June. Mirren joins the numerous national and international stars who will parade on the red carpet of the Kermesse such as: Marisa Tomei, member of the Honorary Committee of Ora!Fest, chaired by John Turturro. Now! Fest wants to be a new cultural event that aims to enhance cinema as an instrument of artistic expression and reflection on the most urgent issues of our time such as social sustainability and environmental culture. The soon-to-be-launched festival website can be found here. Edit: Turns out that Helen has been quite active in the Puglia region as well, attending a couple of events between the promotion for “Fast X” and the Cannes Film Festival. Pictures from a benefit concert for “Save the Olives” and an appearance at the Artigianato d’eccellenza Market Exhibition have been added to the photo gallery.

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.

There’s little time to breath after last week’s visits to the Berlin Film Festival and the United Kingdom (and the season finale of “1923”). On Monday, “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” kicked off its international promotion tour with a photocall in Beverly Hills, during which many press junket interviews were conducted for next week’s releases. Yesterday, Helen and her castmates stopped by in Rome, Italy, for another photocall and big premiere. Pictures from all events have been added to the photo gallery.
