I’m a bit late on this, but Electric Slide was screened by its production company Myriad Pictures at the Cannes Film Festival a couple of months ago in order to attract distributors. No word on whether they did manage that, but there’s obviously a huge market there. To coincide with this screening, they also included their film on their websites and you can view those website pages here and here. Included in that promotion was a new still from the film, which shows Isabel and Jim in character:
Isabel makes an appearance in Los Angeles musician SoKo’s new short film entitled ‘Monster Love’. It’s a really different and unique film, and Izzy appears briefly at about 3:10 minutes in. It also features Isabel’s good friend Hannah ‘Mermaid’ Fraser. The song playing in the film is also called Monster Love, and is by Ariel Pink. Find out more about SoKo (who I presume is a friend of Isabel’s?) at her Facebook page, and read more about this film (no mention of Isabel) at Nowness.com.
A street-stranded mermaid fends off a kitsch beast in Monster Love, a new VHS-recorded promo directed by Soko, who also stars alongside Morgan Krantz and actor, model and marine activist Hannah Fraser. Filmed in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, the short is soundtracked by a song that shares its title, the French polymath’s brand new duet with Los Angeles’ lo-fi underground star, Ariel Pink, that will feature on her forthcoming album. “The whole thing was super DIY and felt like making a school project video with all my friends,” she says. Born in Bordeaux, Soko has starred in a number of films in her homeland, and recently attracted much acclaim in Augustine, a sensuous, César-nominated tale about a 19th-century maid consigned to an asylum. But despite her passion for acting, music remains Soko’s most cherished source of creativity. She has just released her debut album I Thought I Was an Alien in the US, which opens with the stripped-down and haunting track that also features here: “I Just Want to Make It New With You,” written with her collaborator Pink in mind. “We were friends, falling in love, but he was just out of a relationship and I—as always—was broken hearted,” the singer says of a near miss that was the catalyst for today’s film, in which she falls for the luckless protagonist. “We hadn’t shed the heaviness of our past. I imagined that after relationships, we all turn into some sort of monster, and only if we stop being monstrous will we ever be able to be real lovers again.” We got the two together to talk about recording, acting, and the logistics behind becoming a mermaid.

Isabel’s Aussie romantic comedy The Wedding Party was released on DVD in the US on June 19th, and you can purchase a copy at Amazon.com. I don’t have details on the extras. Pick up a copy to see Isabel as the Russian bride Ana!
Additionally, Starpulse.com have a competition for US residents to win a copy of the DVD.
Steve Thompson (Josh Lawson), a lovable anti-hero, is the youngest son in the gloriously flawed Thompson family. In a bid to save himself from financial ruin, Steve does the unthinkable and agrees to marry Ana (Isabel Lucas), a Russian woman seeking residency in exchange for a huge sum of cash. Behind closed doors the deal is done, a secret wedding is arranged and in no time life will be back to normal, or so Steve thinks, until a nosy family friend gets wind of the wedding plans and before sundown the whole Thompson family is gripped by wedding fever. Although Steve’s family could use some constructive therapy for their own relationships, they rally together to support Steve in preparation for the world’s most farcical wedding. What was once a private registry affair is now a fully-fledged spectacle as Steve’s lie takes on a life of its own, and he is more and more consumed by the fear that he has ruined his chance to be with his true love Jacqui (Kestie Morassi).
I just stumbled across this new picture of Isabel snapped with fans in Los Angeles, and thought I’d post it here as it looks like Izzy has had her hair cut short! I wonder if it’s for a role, or if she just fancied a change? Either way, I think she looks fantastic! Click the picture below to see it in it’s original size at the Tumblr of the fan who took the pic ….
Isabel was recently photographed for contemporary culture magazine 032c, and the editorial can be seen in the magazine’s new Spring/Summer 2013 issue. The photographs see Isabel posing with trees in California, and she looks her typical naturally pretty self. Browse through the pics in our Gallery.
You can purchase a copy of the magazine online here.

A big thanks goes to Philippe for today’s update – he has very kindly sent us some paintings he has done of Isabel as Athena in Immortals. I think his work is fantastic, and I particularly love the detail and colour of the two colour paintings – they are gorgeous! Have a look at them on our fanart page, and a big thanks again to Philippe for letting us display his work:
Here is another short video clip from the set of Careful What You Wish For. Again, it autoplays and goes on repeat, so watch out!
A very beautiful Isabel answers a fan question on the set of Careful What You Wish For, saying that her favourite things to do off-set are reading, playing guitar, and using her ipod. The video plays on a loop and I can’t change that, so you may want to turn the sound off after a few listens
Here are a couple of new, fan-taken photos from the set of Careful What You Wish For:

The Wedding Party is available to buy on DVD in Australia, and I have now been able to add screencaptures from the film to our Gallery. They are small captures, but this is all we can get for the moment. Isabel has a fairly large role in the film, and put in a good performance as Ana … probably one of my favourite’s of hers actually! The film is a fun Aussie romantic comedy and I’d recommend watching it if you can.
