During their ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ press day earlier this week, Margot and Domhnal chatted with BBC London News about their new film! BBC have uploaded the interview to their YouTube account, and I have attached it for you below. Screen Captures will be up later today, stay tuned.

Winnie the Pooh is arguably the world’s most famous bear and loved by generations. Now the story of his creator AA Milne, and his real life son, Christopher Robin has inspired a new film. It takes audiences back to the time when the real life animal, a black bear from Winnipeg, could be visited and even fed at London Zoo. Alice Bhandhukravi spoke to two of the film’s stars Margo Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson.

The Independent has posted an exclusive video, detailing a behind the scenes look of the real life inspiration of Chrisopher Robin. Many people are familiar of the characters of Christopher, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger but the movie itself delves into the story of how those characters were created by A.A. Milne and the inspiration of his son.

The Independent posted this short article alongside the video:

We all know the Christopher Robin who populates the pages of A.A. Milne’s book, the friend to many creatures of the Hundred-Acre Wood.

But what of the real Christopher Robin? More precisely, Christopher Robin Milne, or as his family would often call him, Billy Moon. As a boy, Christopher Robin was gifted a teddy bear he named Edward; this toy, alongside a real Canadian bear named Winnipeg Milne saw at the London Zoo, became the inspiration for Winnie-the-Pooh.

Read the article in it’s entirety here.

I have added screencaps of Margot’s scenes in the video, where she chats about the actor Will Tilston who plays her on-screen son, Christopher.

   

Other news in relation to the movie, is that it shall also be presented at 53rd Chicago International Film Festival, as well as the Hamptons International Film Festival. It shall be screened on the 13th October at 6.00pm. More information can be found here.

After the world premiere of ‘I, Tonya’ on friday, Margot and the cast and crew attended a Q&A to talk about the film! We Live Entertainment has uploaded almost the entire session to youtube, and even though the sound isn’t perfect, the video is in great quality. We learn a lot of new information about the film, so I recommend everyone to watch it!

And the updates continue! Below you can read an article Los Angeles Times did on ‘I, Tonya’, the film premiere and the following Q&A’s the cast did. I’ve also attached a video at the bottom of the post, and you can find 3 stunning portraits in our gallery here of Margot, Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney.

(LA TIMES) – among the most anticipated premieres of the Toronto International Film Festival’s first weekend was Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya,” starring Margot Robbie as notorious figure skater Tonya Harding. In part the anticipation was so high simply because few people knew what to expect from the movie: Would it be a satirical farce about tabloid-sordid events or a more dramatic look at Harding’s troubled life? The answer is yes.

Written by Steven Rogers and also starring Sebastian Stan as Harding’s husband Jeff Gillooly and Allison Janney as Harding’s mother, LaVona Golden, the movie finds unforeseen nuance in a story that many might assume they already know too well.

“I, Tonya” opens with a card that declares it to be based on “irony free, wildly contradictory, totally true” interviews with Harding and Gillooly, and goes on to make the most of the conceit. Events unfold and are then smudged just enough by obviously unreliable narrators to cast doubt as to who really knew what and when regarding the infamous attack on Harding’s rival Nancy Kerrigan.

The film’s unusual tone finds plenty of wicked humor in the story but explores a deep, unexpected sense of pathos as Harding was rejected by the establishment of figure skating for her working-class background and hard-charging style. The way in which events spiral beyond Harding’s control shifts from absurdity to tragedy, as Robbie conveys the disappointment of watching a lifelong dream fizzle out.

In a Q&A after the film, Gillespie said it was Rogers’ script that drew him to the project, as “it was such a dance between obviously the humor and the emotion … to take these characters we know so well in the public eye and really get a deeper sense of who they are as people and what motivated them — and the choices and the mistakes they made along the way — just made for a really compelling story.”

Robbie noted that she was struck by how the movie “kind of became a really weird love story.”

She added of shooting one scene of many in which Harding and Gillooly argue and fight, “that ended up being my favorite scene because I forgot that I was acting completely…. Nothing makes me more exhilarated, when I genuinely forget that, I forget where I am.”

The U.S. rights to the movie were initially acquired by Miramax in 2016, but have been put back on the market at the festival.

The film would be a prime candidate for any distributor looking to bolster its awards season slate, as Fox Searchlight did last year when it acquired Pablo Larraín’s “Jackie” out of the festival, and went on to earn an Oscar nomination for star Natalie Portman. If “I, Tonya” sneaks into this year’s race, Robbie, Stan and — in particular — Janney would all be considered competitive in acting categories, as would Rogers’ script in original screenplay.
