    where is K-flop when you need her?
    This will be along list in Katie’s resume of her flops or at least roles where she was the embarrassment to the movie. Meryl is usually great of course but she can’t always save a movie.

    Katie stinks as actress Says:

    #3 that is probably on purpose if the movie su!ks. They are in hopes people will go just because Streep has a part in it.

    “Beloved” children’s novel? Ugh – more like super depressing, although an award winner for the writing itself. I don’t think the book will translate well into a movie, and no one here inspires me to go see it, especially if Alex is barely in it. I love Jeff Bridges, but this movie just seems stinky.

    “in a world without…choice, a young boy is chosen” who writes this crap?

    Caryn Says:

    I’ll go see it for skarsgard, Streep and Bridges. Katie is so not in their acting range with her limited abilities. Haven’t read the book, but maybe she plays a robotic mom which would be just about the upper range of her talent and skill.

    Even Taylor Swift is not been show in this trailer, it’s already make me feel lose hope for this movie.

    She was in 2 cenes in this tralier and both of them she had the same facial expression. Acting is really not for her. I love Meryl Streep, but based on this trailer, I’ll pass on this one.

    Starv Says:

    Looks like they changed around the story quite a bit. THe boy is supposed to be much younger. Anyway this was a good book and the film looks interesting. Katie HOlme is the mother and she doesn’t have a major role in the book. Everyone except for the giver and the receiver are supposed to be robotic anyway, so dont’ call her out for supposed bad acting in this respect.

    You expect her to smirk a la Bell’s Palsy?

    K-Flop - Says:

    The Giver trailer comments as they relate to K-Flop:

    1. K-Flop has the same blank stare as she did in “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” –

    ***Streep is be able to emote with just a look in the trailer, but I guess to be fair it is Meryl Streep.

    2. K-Flop has no speaking parts in this initial trailer. I guess I’ll hold my final opinion until later after more footage and an extended trailer has been released.

    3. K-Flop’s name is not listed in this trailer.

    There is nothing suggesting any significant K-Flop presence in this film (I understand her character has a limited role in the book) so I think The Giver will succeed or fail with little if any credit to K-Flop.

    With little involvement from K-Flop in The Giver I don’t think it will be possible to gauge her acting ‘talents’. It’s not like she’ll be a scene stealer and blow everyone away with just a look or her presence.

    Nathan Says:

    See did you guys notice that in all the articles about this new The Giver trailer on the inter-net have Katie Holmes name FIRST and she’s not even the lead. It’s because she is the star here she is A-list. her name attracts people.

    Oh and she looks beautiful in the trailer. Love you Katie!

    Question? Says:

    Does she have any lines or does she just stare the whole time?

    annie Says:

    Katie probably has a bigger role. She was in South Africa for a while, unlike Taylor Swift who seemed to have gone home after a couple of weeks.
    But it is interesting that Katie is in a couple of scenes in the trailer.
    You people so under estimate her, that’s good in a way
    Anyway the movie looks good, and probably will do well.
    Everyone was complaining about Jack Reacher, but I think Tom was great as Reacher, the role suited him regardless of what people were complaining about.
    For me , can’t wait for Miss Meadows , it looks a bit quirky and fun!

    I knew it! With those vacant eyes, she needed something dark and twisted

    @Question?: She draws ticket buyers. If she were smart she would be majorly getting INTENSE coaching less while she has our attention

    Intriguing and compelling twist to a story as to be lesser expectations and speak of sustaining.

    K-Flop - Always Knew BS Says:

    Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang Close Fashion Line

    “It’s a 5-year-old business that they always knew was going to end,” Leslie Sloane-Zelnick, a publicist for the actress, said Thursday.

    —Really? Why the fashion presentations and pushing the line in the media if this is true. The clothes showed mediocre effort anyway, but interviews with Jeanne and K-Flop presented the opposite attitude of “its going to end” anyway.

    “They still remain good friends,” Sloane-Zelnick said. “The timing was due to the fact that they have other projects in their lives right now and they live on separate coasts. And this is what they always planned.”

    – They both always had side jobs, Jeanne styling celebrities for fashion shoots and events and K-Flop – Dead Accounts, Mania Days, Miss Meadows, Bobbi Brown, Alterna, Magazine pics & interviews, all of which started Oct-Nov 2012.

    The reason? Closing down Holmes & Yang was “in the works,” Sloane-Zelnick said. “They have different lives now.”

    O K, they have different lives “now”, but they sound like the same lives as before. Yeah, the gossip about tension and disagreement between Jeanne and K-Flop early when the news linked about H & Y closing is is closer to the truth. K-Flop has the weakest PR, not even worthy of side-eyes. Sloane-Zelnick gets a C for effort on this statement.

    “Nowadays, Yang is busy “styling major people in LA,” the publicist said, and Holmes is in a movie about a school teacher, “Miss Meadows,” that will premiere next month at the 13th annual Tribeca Film Festival. In addition, the “Dawson’s Creek” actress plans a return to TV in a starring role, in an ABC pilot for a drama about a New York City socialite.”

    Nothing we didn’t already know prior to this PR statement.

    Katie probably couldn’t afford the clothing line without Tom’s money. Especially since the line was so expensive and people weren’t buying the clothes. L’Wren Scott’s clothes were very expensive and look how her line wasn’t making any money. Tommy Hilfiger’s clothes seem to be much more affordable and prices everybody can afford.

    PR BS Says:

    K-flop that is straight PR BS. You don’t start a line planning for it to end especially in 5 short years. Liars. Anyone with an ounce of common sense will see through that lie.

    annie Says:

    Looks like they have already started filming the series.
    As for Holmes/ Yang, K and J live in different cities, and Katie is busy with other things. If the series goes ahead, that’s a full time job. There will also be promotional appearances ,and she does have a lot of stuff going on
    Maybe the plan was to give it a 5 yr time frame, nobody knows that wasn’t the original idea to begin with. Then again maybe they are smarter, and knew when to close up shop, before losing too much money.
    A lot of designers struggle to keep afloat, look at
    l ‘Wren Scott, her business went down, and so many stars wore her clothes, at big events.
    Maybe stars don’t even buy the clothes, they just get given them for the occasion.
    I liked a lot of H/Y, especially their jackets and coats, but very very expensive.
    I bought the same dress, in Target for $89 , that they sold for $ 1,600, too much.
    But you do get the impression from her interviews , not just now, but way before, she’s not afraid to try things, even if they don’t work out, because she believes, that you are supposed to experience things, to get to where you are meant to go, in life.
    Seeing my interest in astrology, and unusual things, I kinda get where she’s coming from, just found it interesting that she said it , in that way.

    Nadine Says:

    You might know this but just wasn’t sure from your comment since you used the word series, but it’s not known yet if this pilot will go to series. So right now they are filming the pilot to try and get the show picked up.
