Blogoversary: Eight Years of Blogging Pride & Prejudice!

Image
Pride & Prejudice (2005) Fan Blog celebrates 8 Years Online!
On this day (May 29th, 2007), 8 years ago, I started this little P&P blog. Wow, 8long years!!! I can't believe it's been 8 years already! It seems just like yesterday, I was a virgin to Blogger, lol...and was learning and figuring out how to add codes and contents to this blog. I never thought I'd be blogging about all things P&P, let alone this long, but it's all because of my on going love for this 2005 movie version of Pride & Prejudiceand the amazing actors who portrayed my favorite P&P characters brilliantly on this 4th-time Oscar nominated film. I've really enjoyed blogging here and posting all things P&P (though in recent years it's been mostly about P&P actors and their TV & Film project news articles)and Austen related topics as frequently as I've been able to for all these 8 wonderful years. Well, you know what they say, time flies when you're having so …

Pride & Prejudice Movie Fans Live Tweets on Twitter

Image
Last night's back-to-back airing of Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen on TV on Oxygen channel got me super excited as It's been a while since it was showing on TV. I love watching this movie on TV even though I've seen it countless times, I own a few copies of it on DVDs and Blu-Ray, and I don't like those annoying commercials that goes with it. But because this 2005 version of P&P is my all-time favorite movie, I can't help but watch this movie (over and over) again whenever it's on TV. Well, what can I say, this movie just never gets old in my viewing (no matter how many times I've seen it in almost a decade now and I know I wasn't the only one).

Here's the blurb of Regina Jeffers' upcoming new P&P related novel...

Close To Nature – Fashion Inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice

Image
It’s hard for me not to think of Pride & Prejudice (2005) and not think of how the cinematography, particularly the scenes of nature influence my enjoyment of this film.The imagery is lush and the locations are sumptuous. After all, what is a Jane Austen adaptation without landscapes playing a major role? The influence of her garden and the surrounding fields of the English terrain are evident in her writing of the outdoors.

Keira Knightley's Pride & Prejudice connection with a few Matthews, a Rupert Friend, a Tom Mison, and a Colin Firth!

Image
A few handsome Darcys, a couple Wickhams, and a Bingley, please?!

How lucky is Miss Keira Knightley to have worked with these handsome P&P/Austen actors (including a few Matthews: Macfadyen, Rhys, and Goode)? Then, she was (and still is to this day) the only Elizabeth Bennet actress to be the youngest and exact same age (20) as her EB book counterpart when herPride & Prejudice movie was released almost 10 years ago (in 2005). Now, she's also, the only Elizabeth Bennet to have worked with (most of them more than once) a few Darcy actors (her P&P movie and Anna Karenina co-star , Colin Firth of Pride and Prejudice 1995 and her Love Actually/Steve co-star, and her The Edge of Love co-star of Death Comes To Pemberley), a couple Wickhams (her ex-boyfriend and formerP&P movie/The Suicide Brothersco-star and her The Imitation Game co-star of Death Comes To Pemberley), and a Bingley (her /sho…

Movie Casting News: Rosamund Pike in talks to star with David Oyelowo in 'A United Kingdom' film!

Image
More movie projects (this is the 7th one with other titles already lined up:HHHH, The Spark,The Deep Blue Good-by with Christian Bale, The Mountain Between Us, and The Bends. Plus the long in-development French Window) is lining up for on-demand Oscar Nominee Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike (photo by Getty Images with David Oyelowo at Jack Reacher premiere and press interview image via movieweb), as another movie in the works, A United Kingdom, which she is currently in talks and considering signing on to and join fellow Oscar Nominee Selma's David Oyelowo (who previously co-starred with Ros in 2012's Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise). The film is based on a true story of Prince Seretse Khama of Bostwana, who caused an international scandal when he married Ruth Williams, a white woman from London in 1940s. This looks interesting, I hope Ros signs on for this movie. If she does, I'm sure she'll be playing the female lead Ruth Williams.

As filming for Matthew Macfadyen's upcoming film The Trapp Family: A Life of Music is underway with director Ben Verbong and co-stars Yvonne Catterfeld, Eliza Bennett, and the rest of the Trapp familyin Austria, a new on set photo ^ featuring Matthew with director Ben Verbong and I think two of the youngest Von Trapp kids (photo credit: Egelseder) emerged via Tips.

The new Tips article has some new filming info.
