Four more in training for ‘Red Dawn’ remake

August 10th 2009 • by Jess • 2 CommentsRed Dawn

Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise and Edwin Hodge are the newest Wolverines to join MGM/UA’s “Red Dawn” remake.

They join Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki in the revamp of the 1984 action movie about a group of teenagers who form an insurgency when their town is invaded — this time by Chinese and Russian soldiers.

Hutcherson will play Robert, originated by C. Thomas Howell, and become the group’s tech geek. Lucas is Erica, head cheerleader and the Peck character’s girlfriend whom he desperately hopes to spring from an internment camp. Lea Thompson played the character in the original.

Cruise is playing Daryl, the son of Spokane’s mayor and Robert’s best friend. And Hodge will play Danny, the coolest kid in school and star wide receiver who helps establish the resistance.

Isabel at the Los Angeles screening of The Cove

August 8th 2009 • by Jess • 2 CommentsGallery Update, Public Appearance, The Cove

Last week I posted that Isabel would be attending the opening night of The Cove in Los Angeles on Friday 31st. She did attend the event but no pictures of her there surfaced … until now! I’ve finally been able to find 5 photos from the event, and a big thank you goes to Shannon for getting them for me.

Isabel looks to be wearing the same outfit as she did at the Tierney Gearon Exhibition, minus the black tights and red gloves. She looks as gorgeous as ever, though ;)

Hi Izzy fans! Updates have been slow these past few days because I’ve been busy with offline stuff … I’m back with more photos for you today though ;) To start with I’ve added 3 new photoshoot pics, including 1 new one that I think was taken for Paris Match magazine earlier this year. Then I decided to cap another Home & Away episode, and have added caps from episode #4122.

As I’ve said before, if you know where I can find Home & Away episodes to download, if you have any on your computer that you can send me, if you have episode screencaps that you can contribute etc. then please please let me know!

Current episodes of Home & Away on Five in the UK have been put on hold for 4 weeks to increase the gap between Aus and UK episodes. In place, they will be showing 4 weeks of old episodes, in a feature called ‘Sun, Sea and Scandal’. There are bound to be a few from Isabel’s time on the show, so keep your eyes peeled! You can see a list of this weeks episodes on the Five.tv site here and I think they might have the full episodes available to watch there as well.

Summer’s New ‘Hair-under': The Brazilian Glaze

July 31st 2009 • by Jess • 2 CommentsStyle

instyleukhair Find out how to get summer’s uber-natural sunkissed honey highlights just like our latest hair crush, Isabel Lucas…

Celebrity hair has become surprisingly low-maintenance looking this summer (even Nicole Kidman has down-dyed her roots back to red)! So it’s no surprise that the season’s hottest colour technique is less about bold colour and more about back-from-the-beach highlights.

InStyle’s newest hair crush, Isabel Lucas (Megan Fox’s co-star in the Transformers film) works the technique well – what’s not to love about her rich-but-still-real honey hues?

Fancy experimenting? “This look is all about deluxe-natural colour,” explains Simon Hill, Creative Director at Edinburgh’s award winning salon, Sesh Hairdressing, “and we get it by placing random highlights using matte natural tones like caramel, honey and cocoa.” To get this colour spot on, Simon suggests avoiding red tones and asking for differing widths of highlights through the mid-lengths to the ends to keep the look naturally sunkissed.

Hayden Panettiere blogs about saving the whales

July 30th 2009 • by Jess • No CommentsCharities

Hayden Panettiere has posted a blog at TakePart.com about her fight to save the whales and dolphins. Although this is not really Isabel news, Hayden does mention Izzy briefly, and I thought this might interest some visitors.

The goals of our campaign are to end whaling along with all commercial dolphin and porpoise hunts worldwide while raising awareness to the other threats whales and dolphins face.

There is a brutal practice in Japan that has unnecessarily and painfully taken the lives of tens of thousands of dolphins and other small whales. They blind and frighten these helpless animals by hammering on metal poles in the water, driving them into small coves where they are trapped in nets and then killed.

I experienced this first hand when Jeff invited me and Isabel Lucas, our Australian spokesperson, to join him on a trip to the notorious dolphin-killing cove of Taiji, Japan in October 2007.

We took part in a peaceful paddle-out ceremony that was being led by fellow campaign spokesperson and Surfers for Cetacean’s co-founder Dave Rastovich.

There, we, along with three other activists, paddled out into the blood red waters where over 30 pilot whales had already been slaughtered. We honored the beautiful animals that had lost their lives there.

Filmmaker hopes The Cove spurs Aussies into activism

July 30th 2009 • by Jess • No CommentsThe Cove

To me it’s like Australians are on the frontlines of this war, and it is a war at the bottom of the world to save the planet.

– Director Louis Psihoyos

Doco-thriller The Cove has got people talking all over the world, but the film’s director says Australians in particular should take notice.

The expose on dolphin slaughter in the village of Taiji, Japan has been collecting awards at film festivals around the globe, including two of the audience awards at the Sydney Film Festival last month.

Director Louis Psihoyos is in Australia to show The Cove at the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF), and says he hopes to galvanise local support against the practice.

“To me it’s like Australians are on the frontlines of this war, and it is a war at the bottom of the world to save the planet,” Psihoyos told AAP.

“I really feel like it’s really important to give people here, organisations here, something to rally around.”

Other ticket packages for the Festival are also available for purchase by cash, debit or Visa†.
