While I was expecting a busy October for Helen Mirren, not much has happened. “Documentary Now!” has been released rather quietly – and “White Bird: A Wonder Story” hasn’t been released at all, it seems. The film was slated for a theatrical release on October 14, but it hasn’t been listed anywhere nor have there been any reviews. So, its release remains a mystery. At least, the archives are not going to run dry. I have added another batch of production stills from various film and television projects, as well as a new picture from the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, one of Helen’s very first public appearances on the international stage, for the release of “O Lucky Man!”. Have a look at all updates below and enjoy your Sunday.

Taylor Sheridan‘s limited series 1923 has turned out to be such a sprawling saga that he’ll need two seasons to get it done, according to Deadline. 101 Studios and MTV Entertainment Studios have given a thumbs up to Sheridan’s ambitions for the Paramount+ limited series, and sources said that negotiations are underway to bring back the cast for another season. Each 1923 season will be eight episodes, starring Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren, and a cast of bright young actors playing the three young sons and two daughters. While the bulk of the action focuses on the construction of the sprawling Yellowstone ranch in Montana, the series is also shooting in South Africa, Tanzania, and Malta, to give a sense of the saga’s scope. All this is happening while the Taylor Sheridan Universe continues to spin. Yellowstone, the series that started it all, returns for a fifth season with a two-hour-episode premiere on Paramount Network on November 13. The series continues to grow in popularity, with the Season 4 finale viewed by an audience of 10 million. The Yellowstone premiere leads into the first episode of Tulsa King, the new drama Sheridan created as a star vehicle for Sylvester Stallone, with Terence Winter serving as showrunner. Jeremy Renner and the cast of Mayor of Kingstown are set to return for a second season.
Screencaptures and videos from recent and older appearances have been added to the archives – including PSAs for Italian causes that Helen Mirren promotes, television interviews for “The Good Liar” in 2019 and “The Queen” in 2006 and an appearance in a festival trailer for the International Film Festival Karlovy Vary in 2013. For a complete list of updates, have a look at the previews below. Enjoy.

Consequence TV has a lenghty profile and interview with Helen Mirren for the recent premiere of “Documentary Now”: It’s been five months since I spoke with Helen Mirren about hosting the IFC spoof series Documentary Now!, and I still haven’t gotten over her saying that she doesn’t think she’s funny. “I’m never comfortable with comedy,” she says, to be exact. “I’m so out of my depth with comedy. The only way I can deal with it is to be as serious as I possibly can be, if you know what I mean. I think if I was ever a part of a comedy team, I would definitely be the straight man. I wouldn’t be the funny one. I would be the one to set the joke up.” It’s an opinion that comes from her deep respect for the genre: “I think much too seriously so I love watching comedy. I’m very admiring, especially on film, comedy is very difficult. I’m very admiring of people who do comedy well on film. I think it’s easier to do it live because film is so technical to maintain the timing and the lightness of improvisational quality on film, it’s very difficult. But no, I’m not very good at comedy.” The complete interview can be read here.
