Quote of the Day: Keira Knightley on Her Pout

Keira Knightley in 'Pride and Prejudice' Keira Knightley for Chanel

"I’ve got [the pout] out of my system. I didn’t know I did it so much, and [Pride and Prejudice director] Joe [Wright] banned it from the film. Then, when we did the Chanel adverts he said, 'You know that pout we banned? Can we have it back and as much as possible.'"

- Keira Knightley recalls director Joe Wright eliminating her pout on set only to later ask her for it during a Chanel shoot.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Be Mini-Series

Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesThe best-selling parody of Jane Austen’s classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has been given the greenlight by Deadline Productions to make a 6-part television series.

Although talks have circulated around a feature film, it looks as if the mini-series may win the race to adapt Seth Grahame-Smith’s eccentric, fan boy-pleasing novel.

Along with announcing the production news, the book’s Twitter also released possible concept art for the series (seen after the break).

No word yet as to which network is expected to pick up the series; however, it will most likely be a British one, considering the production company is UK-based. As if Sci-Fi wouldn’t love to air a ninja-induced, zombie-killing love story!

I’m Swooning Over Mr. Darcy

Posted by Monica Edwards Categories: Movies, Personal,

DarcyHow many women out there have seen Pride and Prejudice? I finally watched it alone after receiving it in the mail via Blockbuster. It had been sitting on top of our DVD Player waiting for that rare moment in time that Andru and I could catch a movie together. It, being a romantic drama, sat there longer than most movies until I decided that I wanted to see it so why wait for my husband who didn't really want to? Sure he would have sat through it but would he get out of it as much as I would? Nah. Why you ask? Because the whole movie is so magically romantic, beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, and the best part? Mr. Darcy!! I swoon over him. Women don't swoon anymore. But I did. If you want to know what that feels like, watch for yourselves. Yes, I am an independent, strong woman but not so much that I cannot admit that I love the formalities of the 18th Century. An era when men picked up your dropped handkerchief, jumped on a horse and rode off into the night to save your family's reputation from sure ruin, waltzed with you, and confessed their dying devotion to you in such poetic ways. Men were gallant, polite, and spoke oh, so elegantly. I am not saying that these men don't exist now, I'm sure they do. Just none like Mr. Darcy. My husband is probably more of a romantic than I, and he has been known to pamper me. "I love you babe" smile But in a world of computers, cell phones, Xbox, Nintendo, and so many things that have to get done, a girl likes to dream, if only for 130 minutes of her day. And Mr. Darcy? If I were not married, and he existed? Andru would have some competition. I recommend, for the woman who is in the mood for a little romance and your sweetie is knee deep in emails, curl up on the couch with some hot chai and a soft blankie and dream a little with the dashing Mr. Darcy.
