Downton Abbey fans, get ready to cry: Maggie Smith will be leaving the show after Season 3. Apparently, the actress wants to return to the stage and would like to work on the big screen again. Lady Violet will certainly die then, be prepared! I wonder if the show will survive her departure. In Season 2, most of the fun came from Maggie Smith’s brilliant portrayal of the Countess and her irony came as a relief from the much too soapy storyline.
Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska will both direct segments of The Turning, an adaptation of the collection of short stories by Tim Winton. They complete the list of 15 other Australian directors. Though helmed by different directors, it looks like the segments are all connected in some way. It will be the first time directing for both actors.
Cutting Kate Winslet’s nude scene in Titanic 3D didn’t seem to matter much in China where the film managed to earn $58million at its opening. Internationally, the rerelease has grossed $190.9 million. Adding this to the original release, Titanic has now gone past the $2 billion mark. Sail on, Sailor!
That’s it for today! Nothing very exciting I know, but let’s hope that tomorrow will bring better news!
Viddy Well my friends.
