    Bring it on. I cannot wait for this one.

  • Alaia

    He’s not even the lead in the film. Kirsten and Charlotte are. Why put him in the title? To satisfy the crazy fans?

  • Anon

    With all of his hotness, he can’t cave this! WTF was that?

  • Anon

    I guess that’s what I get for being mean! My post was supposed to read: Even with all of his hotness, he can’t save this! WTF was that?

    @Alaia: Because the JJ and the film’s US marketing know that to US fans Alex is a draw to this movie. Most Americans have no idea who Charlotte Gainsbourg is.

    WHAT A OLD NEWS

  • Beck

    @Maria: it’s not old news. It’s a new trailer, moron.

  • Camille

    Although this trailer isn’t new, JJ is posting it because of the premiere at TIFF next weekend. I’m glad Alex gets to go there and promote it since he missed out at Cannes. I really want to see this movie, even if he’s not in it very long. LVT always makes really weird and thought provoking films. They don’t suit everyone’s taste, but it looks beautifully shot and I like Kiki Dunst, so I want to see how she plays this. From all I hear, she did a fantastic job.

  • Camille

    I don’t know if you guys saw this on the other thread so I’ll repost it here. Here’s a promo for the season finale of TB. It had better not come down to Sookie having to choose who burns at the stake. Ugh!

    sexiest man alive!!!!!!!

  • Emma

    @Camille,

    Thank you for posting that. It says a lot about Alex.

    When Brad Pitt was in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada filming the Jesse James movie, he walked around the set, but didn’t pose for pics with fans or sign autographs. Now, maybe there were instructions for that not to be allowed, or it was due to crowd control, but it would’ve been cool for him to make an effort.

    Also during that time, he, Angelina and Maddox were living in a house outside town. A fan waited in the rain for days with a sign asking Angelina for a pic. She finally did it, but it was a shame they took themselves so seriously that they moved around in a convoy, had tarps up around the grounds of the home to hide their movements and photo-ops were staged. I like them, but wonder at their life sometimes. Maybe they didn’t have a lot to do with the public because it was around the time Brad’s divorce from Jennifer became final. Who knows. Death threats maybe?

    I don’t think Alex would ever let things get so out of hand he would need to do all that stuff. That’s why he escapes to Sweden, to avoid becoming a Hollywood hermit.

  • Camille

    @Emma:
    I’m gald that he takes time out for his fans. Hopefully he will never get to that level that he ignores people when his fame really rises. I think it’s good he goes back home where he’s just considered a regular person by everyone. It keeps him grounded. He’s said that in recent interviews that his friends just treat him like a regular person and that’s what he appreciates.

  • PurpleSamantha

    I read somewhere that a girl approached Gerard Butler at a club in L. A. and asked for a pic. He told her it would cost her a dollar, but he gave the dollar back and apparently talked to her for 10 or 15 minutes. I wonder if the European actors are just more relaxed?

    opened here in Brazil last month

  • salignary

    The best film i have ever seen !!!

  • seeshay

    These ‘art’ movies usually have such a limited distribution that Melancholia may not be shown at nearby theaters. I wonder how wide the distribution for Straw Dogs will be too. I will see both of them in theaters if I can do that reasonably easily. If not, will do on demand. but I think it makes a difference to see movies on the big screen so I’ll hope for that. I’m glad to see Alex will go to TIFF for this, it was a shame he had to miss out on Cannes. Hope he gets good notice for his role in it.

  • Camille

    @seeshay:
    I’m not sure either of these will come to my town’s theatre. It’s pretty small and usually shows the big blockbuster, family or kids movies. We got The King’s Speech only after it won at the Oscars, even though it had been out for a long time before that.

  • Camille

    Awww, Alex posing with a mom and her little baby. The caption says that the baby’s name is Caleigh and that she had fun with Julianne Moore, so maybe she’s in the movie?

  • anon

    Wow, this looks promising. And that Dunst already won an award for this gives me hope. I so much want to like this film.

  • emma

    It’s out in Europe already, and it’s completely AMAZING.

  • Stacy

    I cannot wait to see this movie. Love Kirsten!

  • M

    He’s barely a lead in the film let alone in this trailer. That’s American marketing for you….

  • ladybug

    @M: Yes, it is. It may be misleading, but it’s smart. Now the average LVT fan/serious filmgoer might know who everyone else in the cast is, but if you’re trying to expand your American audience then you’re going to have to use Alex’s name.

  • Cookiecrisps

    Seen this film, his character leaves Kirstin’s after she gets all gloom and doom on their wedding night. So, really he is only in it for like 25 min. But I still loved him in it. :-)
    Kirstan was amazing!

    I love this picture of him. He looks so young and cute.

  • Canuck

    No one has any comments on last night’s show?

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: I will never look at a juice box in the same way.

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: LOL!

  • Canuck

    Am I wrong to find it a bit entertaining that at the beginning when they’re all walking to Moon Goddess, Bill is the shortest one there?

  • Camille

    @Canuck:
    It was pretty decent, though I can’t believe Sookie still spends so much time mooning over Bill before bawling her eyes out. Of course they’d have to make Bill shoot Eric first and of course Bill says yes first. It will be interesting to see what happens between Pam and Eric now that he’s dismissed her. I had to laugh at Bill being the shortest. He’s shorter than the two women even, and they’re not wearing heels.

    @ladybug:
    That was awesome. Gross, but awesome. Then Bill shoots? That was kind of pansy*ssed. They’re vampires, and Antonia was gone from her. He should have taken her out like Eric took what’s his face out, Roy, is that his name? I missed some of it because my stream died, but I got a DL this morning so I plan on watching it tonight to catch up on what I missed.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: She should have fried Marnie with her fairy hands, she seems to be getting some control over it. Noticed the Bill centric stuff too. Ugh… I’ve watched the Pam with a rocket launcher bit a few times, it looks like she actually aimed for Sookie. While they don’t go into how much can be felt through the child/maker bond in TB, if this was the book I’d say that he’s partly so PO’d due to feeling Pam’s full motives in shooting.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: There seem to be main camps regarding Eric/Pam: total freakout or blase.
    AB has mentioned that he doesn’t like having happy relationships for too long on his shows, so in retrospect it would seem logical that he’d like to tweak the Eric/Pam relationship. AB likes to play with the fans and stir them up. Whatever problem Eric and Pam have, I believe it’ll be fixed sometime next season.

  • Camille

    @Canuck:
    The Bill centric stuff is crap. She was just in a really intesnse relationship with Eric after being severely betrayed by Bill and she’s still googly eyed at him? I mean she looked at Eric too, but it’s always Bill first. Ugh!

    @ladybug:
    I think a lot of his reaction was just as a parent, and a scared one at that. You’re right though, they’ll deal with it in season 5, and that’s probably when we’ll get some of the backstory AB said we were going to get about Eric and Pam. Though I have to think that Pam was just trying to cause some kind of distraction because they were well aware of the force field around the place, so she knew nothing would happen.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: One another tumblr site someone mentioned that no one in the witches/vamp scenes has had a decent sleep in a couple of days, which could be messing up their decision processes and emotions. Which sounds logical in real life, but I’m not sure the TB writers are smart enough to use that as excuse for some out-of-character behavior on TB.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    Interesting theory though we don’t actually know if they have had sleep or not. I would assume that the vampires went to ground after the hotel because it seems like it’s a different day when they go to Moon Goddess. Sookie is wearing a different outfit, so she’s obviously gone home to change at some point. I don’t know about the witches. It’s possible that Marnie/Antonia kept them there during the day after the attack at the hotel, but I’m not sure. I never really checked to see if they were wearing the same clothes as that night, but Sookie sure isn’t.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: The vamps have been silvered, so even if they’re ‘sleeping’, they’re probably not sleeping well, same with Sookie and everyone else involved with Moon Goddess.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    Hmm, I hadn’t thought of them still being silvered. I must have missed that part.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: I know, plus the whole dream/being googly-eyed again came after she had his blood again. Hello????? He had you beaten up so he could do what the first time around?

  • Camille

    @Canuck:
    Yeah no kidding, plus she just had Eric’s blood too and she’s not nearly as googly eyed at him. Why should it matter what iteration he is, the blood is blood.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: She should probably just let us have Eric, LOL

  • Camille

    Looks like Alex had a pretty fun weekend in the Hamptons.

    http://www.celebitchy.com/178843/alexander_skarsgard_is_ready_to_have_tequila-soaked_viking_sex_with_randoms

    @Canuck:
    Why everyone is all over Sookie is beyond me. She’s become unbearably annoying.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: I agree, I ‘m getting to the point where I think she should be with Bill, so she’ll get exactly what she deserves… which sure doesn’t seem to be Eric.

    Glad he’s having a good time, can you imagine doing shooters with that guy? He can probably drink everyone under the table.

  • Camille

    @Canuck:
    I don’t know why, but I didn’t take him for a tequila guy. LOL! I thought more vodka or scotch for some reason. Meh, whatever you’re into at the time I guess. It probably would be super fun to hang out with him though, he seems like he’d just be a regular dude to party with.

    She sure doesn’t deserve Eric. Not on the show or in the books, and for different reasons. In the books she’s just on her high horse and a hypocrit but in the show she treats Eric like an afterthough despite the sh*t that happened to her because of Bill. There’s no end to how absolutely stupid that is.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: I didn’t take him for a tequila guy either, although if he was drinking Coronas instead of Heinekens, he was at least staying in the Mexican groove.

    As for Sookie, I can pretty much understand Pam taking aim at her. Why should she lose her maker over a twit who only notices that her beloved Beel is willing to die and just stands there crying like a ninny?
