Gemma Arterton is a writer's muse, don't we wish, in Stephen Frears' TAMARA DREWE

Hey folks, Harry here and here's a film I've been looking forward to, since I first chatted with Gemma Arterton about it last year. Gemma playing a muse feels right. When she came into the hotel bar to sit and talk with me, she commanded attention. Her opening line about, "Feeling a bit slutty today," as she had those crazy slashed up levis and she was dodging about avoiding rats with cameras upon the streets of London. And while I haven't been particularly fond of CLASH OF THE TITANS or PRINCE OF PERSIA... I did see her as a bright indication of life, in otherwise sleepwalking films. But hook her up with Stephen Frears? Put her with this older cast and make her the object of desire for everyone? Yeah - I can see that working. As we talked, the energy with which she spoke about this project, in contrast to the FX spectaculars she had been attached to was easily caught. She bounced in her seat talking about how excited it was going to be, to play with Frears and the rest of the cast. Take a look at this trailer and tell me this doesn't look like her best work is coming October 8th... Click Here for TAMARA DREWE

    by donduck

    It's funny when a flip-flop with socks wear nerd here says "Oh she's not attractive".

    Gemma Arterton? I had her confused with Gemma Atkinson

    by Voice O. Reason

    Man was I disappointed when I watched that trailer.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 11:05 p.m. CST

    Well, yeah, she's good looking . . .

    by James_Camera_On

    But who the hell wants to watch a movie about a bunch of writers (anyone who has ever hung around them knows that male writers are always on the make) trying to lay some broad? And then hilarity ensued. I doubt it.

    I'd like to fondle Jessica Alba

    I just thought I'd drop that one subtly in, albeit slightly off topic.

    Good Lawdy

    by OhGawDuhhh

    What an ass in those shorts!! Dude, I've been hot on her since I watched one of her interviews on YouTube.

  • Aug. 27, 2010, 12:13 a.m. CST

    That's a delicious ass!!!

    by Horace Cox

    I'd give her 24 hours to get off my face.

    A Tale of Two Gemmas

    by dukeroberts

    Gemma Arterton is pretty nice. She looked good as Strawberry Fields and was the only good thing about that crappy Clash of the Titans. Gemma Atkinson however, is amazing. Great shorts on Arterton though. Zowee!

    ...I'm going to be the weird bloke who says Gemma Arterton has got the cutest little nose he's ever seen on a grown woman.

    Because it's adapted from a long-running UK comic strip that's, in turn, inspired by FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD.

    I would suck the fart out of her ass

    by GLG_20

    and hold it in like a bong.

  • Aug. 27, 2010, 7:01 a.m. CST



    you said it about the nose and i agree with ya. i'm all about 'different' noses. the comics sans stuff sucks, trying to make the movie seem 'wackier' than it is, and it's not about graphic novellists anyway. the movie itself doesn't look that great... but at least they don't say 'starring that one arrogant douche that got killed in V for Vendetta'

    Great graphic novel

    by Jeffwode

    This could be brilliant, it's from seriously good source material. Posy Simmonds graphic novel is a great satire and should result in something far removed from a twee Curtis-lite romcom. I'd also watch anything with Tamsin Greig in it.

  • Aug. 27, 2010, 7:27 a.m. CST

    Gemma IS gorgeous, but an actress...? Not sure.

    by performingmonkey

    Obviously she's got something about her, some spark, and for godddd's sake I would struggle not to look at her insanely amazing legs and ass as she walked by...but her line delivery leaves a lot to be desired IMO. Clash and Persia were pieces of shit, let's make no pretence there, but I actually found her 'acting' to be one of the worst things about Persia!!

    Looks depressing.

    by Royston Lodge

    'nuff said.

    don't be such ASSholes you guys, show some respect.

    by Wyndam Earle

    i will honor Ms. Atherton's "acting" prowess by watching this at home with the sound turned down, lube and tissues at the ready...owowowoowoow

    This doesn't look like her best work yet

    by Verbal Kombat

    And she looks capable of so much more.

  • Aug. 28, 2010, 3:26 a.m. CST

    Ugh. Strange, nasty talkback.

    by thebearovingian

    We got the usual innuendo. We got the inhale her flatulence fetish. And some dude is complaining about the font used in the trailer. My fellow AICN friends, yer weird-Os.
