There hasn’t been a Stage Sunday in a long time, and with the current promotion on Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard bringing “Macbeth” to the screen, let’s have a look at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 1974 production of the play, starring Nicol Williamson and Helen Mirren. To learn more about the play, visit the career page. Production stills and the theatrical programme have been added to the photo gallery.

Our next spotlight is the ill-fated “Teaching Mrs. Tingle”, Kevin Williamson’s 1999 high school thriller / soap opera. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills, screencaptures and on-set pictures have been added to the gallery. The theatrical trailer tv spots, b-roll, interview and four clips have been added to the video archive.

After covering Helen’s most recent work, let’s go some 42 years back, to Ken Russell’s “Savage Messiah”, in which Helen played a passionate suffragette. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills, screencaptures and on-set pictures have been added to the gallery, and three clips, alongside its theatrical trailer have been added to the video archive.

Today’s spotlight is a double pack as we cover both R.E.D. and R.E.D. 2. The comic adaptation features Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren as retired agens who reconnect for one last job. They reunite (minus Freeman) in the sequel to fight against nuclear weapons and Anthony Hopkins. The first one I enjoyed dearly, the second left me disappointed. To learn more about R.E.D., visit the career page. Stills and Blu-Ray screencaptures have been added to the gallery, alongside lots of videos, including trailers, television spots, interviews and three clips, all to be found in the video archive video archive.


For more information on R.E.D. 2, visit the career page. The gallery has been updated with stills, Blu-Ray screencaptures as well as captures from the special features. Again, lots of video clips – including trailers, interviews, bloopers and deleted scenes, have been added to the video archive video archive. Additionally, there are clips from public appearances to promote both films, including the Comic Con and the premieres in New York, Los Angeles and London.

Our next spotlight is Terry George’s controversial 1996 drama “Some Mother’s Son”, in which Helen plays a mother whose imprisoned son goes on a hunger strike. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills and screencaptures have been added to the gallery, and three clips, alongside its theatrical trailer have been added to the video archive. Additionally, a video of Helen and Terry George promoting the film on Charlie Rose’s show has been added as well.

Today, we go back 43 years (!) to cover one of Helen’s very first jobs on television, BBC’s five-part miniseries “Cousin Bette”, based on Honore de Balzac’s novel. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills and screencaptures from all five episodes have been added to the gallery, and five clips have been added to the video archive.

Our next spotlight features one of Helen’s finest performances – Showtime’s 2003 adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone”, for which Helen received Golden Globe, SAG and Emmy nominations (and would have deserved to win as well). To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills, screencaps and some fantastic on-set pictures have been added to the gallery. Trailers as as well as three clips have been added to the video archive.

Today’s spotlight is Peter Weir’s “The Mosquito Coast” from 1986, which – despite a starring role by Harrison Ford and the first notable American role for Helen Mirren – became a critical and financial disappointment. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills, screencaps and some fantastic on-set pictures have been added to the gallery. Trailers as as well as three clips have been added to the video archive.

Today’s spotlight features a magnificent early performance in the 1974 “Thriller” episode “A Coffin for the Bride”. It’s impossible to review this one without spoiling the story (just look at the pictures), so I won’t even try. Helen wonderfully plays a double role as a young artist and an obnoxious loud old broad. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills and screencaptures have been added to the gallery. And four clips have been added to the video archive.

Today’s spotlight is Peter Sellers’s dissapointing last film, “The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manhcu”. This 1980 comedy’s only grace is Helen Mirren as his girlfried, a loony Constable posing as the Queen. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Stills, screencaps and posters have been added to the gallery. A television trailer as as well as three clips have been added to the video archive.
