The first poster for Rendition has made is debut. You can check it out in the gallery. I have to say it’s pretty powerful, and I’m growing more and more excited to see this film.
Rendition is a thriller from director Gavin Hood. Witherspoon stars as the American wife of an Egyptian-born chemical engineer who disappears on a flight from South Africa to Washington. The woman desperately tries to track her husband down, while a CIA analyst (Jake Gyllenhaal) at a secret detention facility outside the U.S. is forced to question his assignment as he becomes party to the man’s unorthodox interrogation.

Comments Off on New Release For Penelope
According to Indie Wire, Penelope was dropped by IFC films and is going to be released on February 2008 with another studio. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
A theatrical release of Mark Palansky’s Penelope, the Toronto ‘06 premiere starring Reese Witherspoon which had been scheduled to open this Friday, was recently dropped. With no larger-budget releases on its longterm slate, IFC is instead focusing on its emerging IFC First Take label that simultaneously releases independent and foreign language films in theaters and via cable TV video-on-demand services.
Acquired jointly by IFC Films and The Weinstein Company out of Toronto last year (with IFC handling North American theatrical distribution and TWC taking home video), Penelope was initially slated for a wide release in April but ten days before opening day, IFC publicly announced that the film had been bumped to August 17th. A Type A Films production that was financed and produced by Stone Village Pictures, the film was written by Leslie Caveny and also stars James McAvoy, Catherine O’Hara and Peter Dinklage.
In recent weeks, it became clear that IFC would not be releasing Penelope and indieWIRE has confirmed that the film’s producers are planning a February 2008 release with another company.

As promised, Glamour Reese Witherspoon has provided you with high quality scans of Reese’s awesome cover & spread in the August 24th issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. In the article they state Reese will begin Four Christimases in the Winter, and next year the longly delayed Our Family Trouble (aka Bell Witch). Regular visitors will know that Our Family Trouble has been on and off since late 2005. Four Christmases, in which Reese would co-star alongside Vince Vaugn was just recently annouced in July.
Also an interesting mention in the article, Rendition co-producer Mark Martin says he initially had actress Cate Blanchett in mind for the role of Isabella El-Ibrahim, but Steve Golin, one of the producing partners, says he saw Reese in the role right away. He said “The movie is about somebody you love disapearing, and Reese is such a beloved actress – she’s such a girl-next-door type, only more beautiful – it makes what she goes through more relatable.” Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂 There was also a new movie still from Rendition in the piece. Happy viewing!
Bad news – Penelope has been delayed again. The film was originally supposed to be released this April, then the studio pushed it back to August 17, which now has been pulled to an unknown release date. No word on when the new release is, but hopefully we’ll hear something soon! I know we’ve been itching to see this film for such a long time already.
As reported yesterday, the trailer for Rendition was released today and can now be downloaded in high definition over at MovieFone! Be sure to check it out; it looks really, really good and Reese’s scenes are very powerful. I truly can’t wait to see her performance!
We also added high quality screencaptures of Reese and updated the Rendition page with new information regarding the film.

Comments Off on Rendition Trailer Tomorrow!
While watching Entertainment Tonight this evening they showed a brief clip of Reese at the Avon press conference and also a brief preview of the trailer for Reese’s upcoming thriller, Rendition. The full trailer will premiere tomorrow on ET, and most likely it will make it’s debut online as well. I’m speechless over what I saw because this will most certainly be a Reese Witherspoon performance we cannot miss!
If anyone was able to record either pieces of footage and would consider donating it to Glamour Reese Witherspoon, please send us an e-mail.
