Third and last post for today! The people organizing the annual Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, Italy, announced at the Film Festival in Cannes that Meg is one of the celebrities scheduled to make an appearance this year. The film fest runs from June 15th-June 22nd and one of the main focusses this year is comedy. This quote is in Italian, but i’m sure you’ll be able to understand it:
Meg Ryan, Amy Adams e Renata Livtinova saranno ospiti della 59/a edizione del TaorminaFilmFest, guidato da Mario Sesti, direttore editoriale e dalla general manager Tiziana Rocca, annunciate oggi in un incontro durante il festival di Cannes. Il TaorminaFilmFest aprirà il 15 giugno al Teatro Greco con l’anteprima di uno dei film più attesi della stagione, L’uomo d’acciaio (Man of Steel) di Zach Snyder, che uscirà nelle sale italiane il 20 giugno distribuito dalla Warner Bros. Insieme al regista saranno presenti a Taormina Amy Adams, tre volte candidata agli Oscar, che nel film interpreta la giornalista Lois Lane, e Henry Cavill, il nuovo volto di Superman/Clark Kent.
(…) Accanto alla bellezza russa, quella d’oltreoceano con una delle star più amate del cinema hollywoodiano, Meg Ryan che quest’anno a Taormina sarà protagonista di una Tao Class e riceverà il Taormina Arte Award. “Avere Meg Ryan per la prima volta al Taormina Film Fest – sottolineano Mario Sesti e Tiziana Rocca -, incontrare e premiare una delle attrici più vitali, romantiche e divertenti del cinema americano contemporaneo, straordinaria perfezionista della commedia, è per noi un grande onore e siamo sicuri che lo sarà anche per il nostro pubblico”.
Way back in 1983 Meg starred in one of the Amityville movies, ‘Amityville 3D’. They trilogy is now being released on BluRay. I won’t recommend this movie to you, because I’m not a fan of this trilogy, but it’s fun to see a YouTube clip of the movie with a 21-year old Meg Ryan in it!
Meg Ryan attended the ‘Lucky Guy’ Broadway Opening Night at The Broadhurst Theatre and the after party at Gotham Hall last night in New York City. ‘Lucky Guy’ was written by the late Nora Ephron and stars none other than Meg’s three times co-star Tom Hanks.
This is a moviestill from the first of the three Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movies, Joe Versus The Volcano. Meg plays several characters in this one. When the movie was released in 1990 it didn’t get a lot of good reviews, but since then it has become somewhat of a cult classic! If you’ve never seen it, you should give it a try!
Sorry for not updating the site sooner. I have added several recent magazine clippings to the gallery. They are from UK’s Total Film Magazine, US People Magazine and Globe Magazine.
It’s Thursday again! This time it’s a lovely photo of Meg and Australian actor Hugh Jackman (LOVE him!) around the time that Kate and Leopold came out. Originally, Kate and Leopold was supposed to be released on Valentine’s Day 2002, but the movie company decided to release it sooner, on Christmas Day 2001.
Okay, so it’s Throwback-Thursday on Friday, I know! This time it’s a collage of photos from the movie ‘Courage Under Fire’ (1996). This one’s in honor of all the women serving in our armed forces. We also have a slightly different version of the collage up on our Tumblr page.
Gonna try something new here that’s been done a lot on sites like Tumblr, Instagram and Twitter: Throwback Thursday #tbt! Older photos with a little special effects added. Starting of with a photo of Meg, Tom Cruise and Anthony Edwards in Top Gun back in 1986. Click on the photo to see a larger version.
