  1. It has some pretty serious flaws in its script.


    Some of them are due to decisions made at the outset by writers David Eggers and James Ponsoldt, while others are because the studio Europacorp intervened after production and forced reshoots and editing to take place that made the movie feel downright incomprehensible.


    So yes, it's not very good. Having said that, all the major performances are still solid for what they were working with.


    Also, Danny Elfman's score is excellent.


    For the past week I’ve been making 17th century sugar cones out of plaster for the upcoming BBC show The Miniaturist inside this tiny room. It’s been long and tiring but can’t wait to see them on TV when it’s aired! Only photo I can post for now because all top secret! 😃 



  3. Something to consider:


    When the BBC first announced the project last August, they said "Filming will take place over the winter in both Holland and the UK".


    With the production only starting last week, that obviously didn't happen.


    I don't think it's just a coincidence that this production was delayed right up until the moment Emma's international press tour came to a close.

  4. This is not confirmed yet, but multiple sources are claiming that Emma is currently shooting a BBC 1 TV drama called The Miniaturist.


    The production company has neither confirmed nor denied yet, but I'm 98% sure this is really happening.








    The show is a 3 one-hour episode miniseries, and is expected to air sometime this year.


    Here's some info on the plot and the book it's being adapted from:



    Petronella (Nella) Oortman, a poor 18-year-old girl from the Dutch countryside, arrives at the Golden Bend home in Amsterdam of the wealthy merchant Johannes Brandt, who married her a month earlier. She steps into a house of secrets held by Brandt's ascetic sister Marin, the servants Cornelia and Otto, and Brandt himself, who treats her more like a friend than a husband. Brandt gives her a wedding present of a dollhouse designed to look like their nine-storey home in miniature, and she engages the services of a local miniaturist to add realistic furnishings to it. The miniaturist, whom she never meets, begins sending her lifelike dolls and furnishings that are eerily accurate and even seem to predict the future. As webs of danger close in on the characters, Nella wonders if the miniaturist holds everyone’s fate in her hands.





  5. ‘Beauty and the Beast’ No. 1 in Fandango Ticket Sales 6 Weeks Before Opening


    Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast†remake doesn’t come out for another six weeks, but anticipation for the film is so high that it is selling advance tickets at the same rate as superhero films, according to Fandango.

    Fandango began selling advance tickets for “Beauty and the Beast†on Monday, and already it has become the top seller on the ticket website this week, with hundreds of sold out showtimes across the country. The site also reports that it has sold more advance tickets in its first three days than any other family film, breaking the record set last year by Pixar’s “Finding Dory.â€
    “With its dazzling new trailers, ‘Beauty’ is creating tremendous buzz among movie fans of all ages,†says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Its pre-sales rival those of a superhero movie.â€
