At one stage, 2011 threatened to be the year of Rachel Weisz, with no fewer than five films set for release and several potential awards contenders among them. But things haven't quite turned out as planned; she picked up good reviews for "The Whistleblower," but the film didn't get much traction, while both "Page Eight" and "360" got pretty poor reviews at Toronto, and "Dream House"... well, I mean, you've seen the trailer, right?

Last time we saw the handsome Tom Hiddleston he was moments from having the Tesseract in his hand at the close of "Thor." It looks like he's gotten his hands on a far more enchanting item in the poster for "The Deep Blue Sea," as he clutches the lovely Rachel Weisz in the throes of passion. Lucky Loki.

Schoolboy euphemisms aside, there are presumably worse predicaments to find yourself in than being bookended by Rachel Weisz. No sooner had the organisers of the London Film Festival announced that one of Weisz’s forthcoming films would open the proceedings, Fernando Meirelles' “360,” when Empire got word that the actress’ long-awaited lead performance in Terence Davies’ “The Deep Blue Sea” will close out the festival. As is usually the case for the LFF, they’re cherry-picking the best of what’s on offer elsewhere. Both “360” and “The Deep Blue Sea” will premiere at Toronto in September, and the latter will also crop up at the San Sebastian International Film Festival the same month. An adaptation of the famous Terence Rattigan play (and not the Renny Harlin sharks-with-Alzheimer’s laff-fest) the film, which also stars Tom Hiddleston and Simon Russell Beale, tells the tale of a suicidal, adulterous woman who leaves her husband and shacks up with a boozy ex-Royal Air Force pilot.

Terrence Davies doesn't make movies very often, but when he does, we sit up and pay attention because he is one of the masters. His last film was the documentary/memoir/tone poem "Of Time And The City," and that was four years ago. Eight years before then was "The House Of Mirth." So when it was announced that Rachel Weisz would be leading his latest effort, "The Deep Blue Sea," we nearly toppled over in excitement.
