On the heels of Matrimony Monday (Jan 4, 2010—when brides hit the web to start wedding planning after holiday-time engagements) OneWed teamed up with Universal to give away 50 free passes to the Chicago screening of the new Amy Adams movie Leap Year (where she travels to Ireland to propose to her boyfriend)!
The screening is on Tuesday, January 5th at 7 p.m. in Chicago.
The easy steps to win a free ticket (each pass is for two people) are:
- Visit the website by clicking here
- Leave a comment (before January 4th at 3 p.m.) answering this question: “Is four years too long to wait to get engaged? Did you have a deadline for getting engaged?”
The film officially opens January 8 nationwide.
I’m so excited because my favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, is being made into a movie…again! Check out the terrifying trailer for Dorian Gray:
The only downside is that it doesn’t have a U.S. release date, yet. It opens in the U.K. on September 9 – luckies!
It’s not too often you attend a movie where the audience applauds at the end, but Julie & Julia is that kind of film. And if you were classifying it as a chick flick, think again; it’s much more than a testament to “girl power.” The film is a hilarious story about two people with parallel lives: both seeking fulfillment through self-actualization.
As usual Meryl Streep delivers a delightful performance, channeling the late Julia Child. And Amy Adams’ sweetly understated performance demonstrates her burgeoning talent as a young actress.
If your looking for a good film this summer, Julie & Julia transcends audiences and is a must see!
Watch the bloopers from Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynold’s new movie, The Proposal, in theatres June 19.
Remember the 2002 best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, Lovely Bones? Well, those of you who read the book may be happy to know that it’s being turned into a movie – with an awesome cast:
*Director: Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings)
*Susie Salmon: Saoirse Ronan (the young girl from Atonement)
*George Harvey: Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada)
*Jack Salmon: Mark Wahlberg (Lars and the Real Girl)
For those of you who don’t know the book, it’s about Susie Salmon, a 14-year-old girl who was raped and murdered by her neighbor George Harvey. But, as fans know, the details of the gruesome crime are secondary to Susie’s life in heaven, as she narrates what happens to her friends and family — and her killer — after her death.The film is expected to be in theatres this December.
Interesting fact: Lovely Bones was reportedly drawn from the author’s raped in college. She also wrote about the crime in the 1999 memoir, Lucky, and was instrumental in putting her attacker in prison.
