Today's Forecast: Cloudy With A Chance Of … Prince Charles???

Brilliant! This is absolutely bloody brilliant!

Prince Charles made a cameo on BBC today (above) and you will NEVER believe what he had to say!

Scotish viewers probably thought His Royal Duke of Langfordyorkshireham of Rothesay was about declare a state of national emergency but, no, he went on the air to GIVE THE WEATHER REPORT!!

Whaaaaat????

The unintentional HIGHlarity of this son of a gun Queen telling his subjects they’re in for something “cold, wet, and, windy” is off the charts!!

This was an unscheduled stop during

Nicole Kidman To Channel Grace Kelly In New Film!

Filed under: Film FlickersNicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman Grace Kelly

Seems like Nicole Kidman will be getting the honor to play a TRUE Hollywood icon!

The actress is currently in negotiations to play actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly in the upcoming project, Grace Of Monaco!!!

That’s HUGE!

The film will be directed by Oliver Dahan and produced by Pierre-Ange Le Pogam and as of now, looks like it’ll cost about $15 million to produce!

Don’t think you’ll be sitting through some long, drawn-out biopic of the icon’s life — Grace Of Monaco is said to be more of a period piece, taking place in 1962 when France and Monaco weren’t getting along too well and Grace was just coming into her princess role!

The project is already being compared to the film The King’s Speech in regards to tone and we can’t wait to see how it all plays out!!

What do U think of Kidman playing the role of Kelly??

Emily Blunt Started Acting To Overcome A Stutter

Filed under: InspirationEmily BluntColin Firth

Emily Blunt Stutter

We can't believe it!

Emily Blunt, a board member for the American Institute for Stuttering, overcame the speech disability during her childhood thanks to having a caring teacher much like King George VI, as portrayed by Colin Firth, had in The King's Speech.

However, without ever having to face that obstacle, she may not be who she is today!

In a recent interview, she opened up about the disability she beat by acting in school plays as a child. She explained that her stutter was at its worst when she was 12-years-old, saying:

“I think it started to eke itself out; between the age of 7 and 14 was when it was really bad and around 12 it was at its worst. Not an awkward age at all to be unable to speak. Some people can grow out of it. It’s easier for girls, funnily enough. Genetically, it’s more common in boys.”

Thanks to a caring teacher who encouraged her to begin acting in front of an audience and use different voices to mask her stutter, Emily learned to speak fluently and picked up a new hobby in the process, as she explained:

“I had a really amazing teacher at that age, when I was 12, and he was really kind and helpful and encouraged me to be in the class plays, which previously I had no interest in being in ’cause I couldn’t talk. He said, ‘Well, why don’t you try it in a different voice? Try to do a funny voice or an accent. Maybe that would help.’ But it really did, I was actually able to speak fluently. Once you’re able to hear yourself speak fluently, albeit in a ridiculous accent, you gain the confidence to think this could happen again and again.”

Obviously, Emily Blunt "absolutely loved" the most recent Best Picture Academy Award winner The Kings Speech and calls Firth's performance the "most authentic portrayal" of a stutterer she's ever seen, as she continued:

“It was the most authentic portrayal of a stutterer I have ever seen. I spoke to Colin about it and was in wonderment how he managed to do it. Apparently the screenwriter had also had a stutter, which was really helpful. He really managed to capture that hesitancy, that vocal-cords-locking-out syndrome that happens.”

She's also glad the film opened up people's eyes that stuttering is nothing to be taken lightly and hopes it has raised awareness about the disorder, saying:

“What’s exciting about what Colin did was he actually put a face to stuttering, actually opened up people’s minds around the world to the plight of someone who has one. So I think a lot of stutterers are very grateful to that film and the awareness he brought.”

We had NO IDEA Emily Blunt ever had a stutter, but are happy she did otherwise she may have never discovered her wonderful acting talent!

The King's Speech Director In Negotiations For Les Miz

the kings speech director closing deal for les miz

Last month, we were excited to learn that The King's Speech director Tom Hooper is up for the new Les Miz musical movie.

We thought it was a great idea, and now we're pumped to hear that negotiations have begun for him to sign on to direct the new film version of the Victor Hugo novel/Broadway musical.

If done right, this could DEFINITELY be an Oscar contender!

We'll look forward to hearing confirmation on Tom as the Les Miz director soon.

Do U think A Tom Hooper-directed Les Miserables could be a Best Picture contender?

PG-13 Version Of The King's Speech Coming To Theaters Next Month

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzOscars

pg 13 version of the kings speech gets release date

Do we REALLY need to censor the film that won BEST PICTURE at the Oscars???

The Weinstein Company has announced that starting April 1, they'll pull the R-rated version of The King's Speech from movie theaters, and they'll be releasing a PG-13 version in its place.

Apparently, in order to secure a lower rating, they muted out several instances of the word "!@*&" and other times replaced it with the word "$#!*." LOLz.

The King's Censored Speech will be released on 1,000 screens.

Here's what TWC president of theatrical distribution and home entertainment Erik Lomis had to say about this move:

“We are thankful to the MPAA for their wisdom and swift action in approving the release of The King’s Speech PG-13 version."

It's certainly a great film, so on the one hand we're happy that younger audiences will get a chance to see it, but on the other hand, the film was fine as is - it won Best Picture.

They could have left it alone. Any parent who sees the film will most likely let their children watch it on DVD as long as they're not TOO young. The cursing was NOT a huge deal at all…AND it was mostly in good taste.

Do U think it was a good idea for them to release a PG-13 cut of The King's Speech? Or should they have left it alone?
