Two stills of Rebecca in the upcoming holiday comedy, Holmes & Watson have been added to the gallery. Based on the trailers, it’s hard to get an idea of how significant her role will be in the film, though we can hope she at least gets to display some of her comedic ability.

Christmas has come early, Rebecca fans–we at last have some lovely new photos of her attending the Holmes & Watson photocall in Los Angeles. In recent months, we’ve had lots of exciting news about her career and upcoming projects, but her presence has been missed – especially since many of her Instagram posts are now gone. Back in January, she announced she was expecting her first child with husband Morgan Spector – so this would of course explain why she’s been a lot quieter recently. We wish Rebecca and her family the very best, not just for the holiday season, but for the year ahead. I have a feeling it will be a great one!

DEADLINE – “Never been with anyone else your entire lives – that so crazy,” the couple’s friend says. “Our sex life is really, really great,” she replies. “Compared to what?” another pal chimes in. “The two of you are so perfect and constant and inevitable and boring — aren’t you curious? You must be.”

So sets up Permission, a romantic dramedy starring Rebecca Hall and Dan Stevens as said perfect yet boring pair. Anna and Will have shared so many firsts: kiss, love and only relationship. The aforementioned conversation takes place 10 years into their coupling, at Anna’s 30th birthday party – as Will is about to propose. But the thought of what might have been and could be lingers. So Anna proposes that they try opening their relationship – as a sexual experiment – and they venture out of the purely monogamous boundaries.

Gina Gershon, Francois Arnaud, Morgan Spector, David Joseph Craig and Jason Sudeikis co-star in writer-director Brian Crano’s film, which premiered at Tribeca. Hall, Margot Hand, Giri Tharan and Joshua Thurston produced it. Good Deed Entertainment got Permission in January and will release it in theaters on February 9.

Another day, another great interview with Rebecca – this time with online magazine The Laterals. The article also comes accompanied by a stunning photoshoot, which has been uploaded to the gallery.

THE LATERALS – Many of the films Rebecca Hall is famous for involves fiercely resolute women: Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Prestige, Christine, and The Town. It is obvious she is beautiful. But what you might miss is her steely opulence, which has nothing to do with good looks. It’s about captivating you, which she brilliantly uses as theatrical leverage. However, what we find most remarkable is her skill at creating a mixture of imperfections, masterfully blending her role and herself. Characters are simply strangers she aims to figure out. Rebecca delves in and finds their light, their madness, what keeps them charged—and then composes a finite presentation that propels itself off screen. Her goal isn’t to win your affections, she wants you to question them.

Although Rebecca Hall has deep familial roots in the arts, it never defined her. Instead, it instilled a grounded sense of independence. Her unusual upbringing—a renowned English director for a father, an American opera singer for a mother, life in the countryside of Sussex, and a private girl’s school—all provided her insight. Perhaps that is why she seamlessly connects with her roles, and with you. Rebecca was only 10 years old when she made her professional debut on a UK television show. Some of her more notable work thereafter was in the theatre, where her performances earned her a number of accomplishments including the Ian Charleson Award and a role on Broadway. Her dossier spans a variety of genres that’s as complex as her skillset. With plenty more scripts on the horizon, we have much more to look for in Rebecca Hall—Holmes and Watson with Will Ferrell and A Rainy Day In New York with Jude Law—just to name a few. Regardless of what role she’s in, you won’t want to look away.

I’ve added scans of Rebecca’s cover feature in the latest issue of Off Camera to the gallery. The magazine is an online documentation of an in-depth interview hosted by director and photographer, Sam Jones. The show airs on DirecTV, but the full episode is available for purchase here. I’ll do my best to capture the whole episode, as well as publish the transcript from the interview in our press archives.

With huge thanks once again to the lovely Emily, I have added further coverage of Rebecca’s appearances at the 74th Venice Film Festival, which ended earlier today. Doesn’t she look incredible?

As you’ll no doubt know already, Rebecca is part of the competition jury at the Venice Film Festival – which commenced a few days ago. Not only is this a fantastic honor for Rebecca, but it also means we get to see her quite often during the course of the festival, looking incredible at various premieres, photocalls and private dinners. Our first batch of photos have now been added to the gallery – and more will follow soon. Huge thank you to Emily for her donations.

I have finally updated the gallery with screen captures from the Blu-ray edition of Christine–including deleted scenes. Words cannot quite express just how perfect Rebecca is in this role–every critical rave during the film’s release was much deserved. Many of you will likely know the film’s premise by now, and also the real life tragedy that “inspired” it. Unfortunately, Christine flew largely under-the-radar and therefore Rebecca missed out on what could have been a highly successful awards season. If nothing else, the project humanizes and brings a new dimension to what has often been a sensationalized piece of television history–and given the strength of Rebecca’s performance, it should hopefully open the doors to many more leading roles.
