Rachel Weisz seems to be making a run at Jessica Chastain for most movies to be unveiled all at the same time. "360," "The Deep Blue Sea," "Page Eight" and "Dream House" will all play festivals or hit a theater near you in the next month or so (and that's not counting "The Whistleblower" which recently made its way to the multiplex) so we're gonna be getting a whole lotta Weisz. We can hardly complain about being bombarded by movies featuring one of the best actresses working today, but it does mean we're going to be seeing her pop up quite a bit in the next short while.

Rachel Weisz seems to be making a run at Jessica Chastain for most movies to be unveiled all at the same time. "360," "The Deep Blue Sea," "Page Eight" and "Dream House" will all play festivals or hit a theater near you in the next month or so (and that's not counting "The Whistleblower" which recently made its way to the multiplex) so we're gonna be getting a whole lotta Weisz. We can hardly complain about being bombarded by movies featuring one of the best actresses working today, but it does mean we're going to be seeing her pop up quite a bit in the next short while.

The first clip from Terence Davies' "The Deep Blue Sea" has landed online and it's quite lovely. Set to Jo Stafford's version of "You Belong To Me," the brief scene is a woozily romantic look at Weisz, who plays Hester Collyer, the suicidal wife of a High Court Judge, dancing with Tom Hiddleston, an R.A.F. pilot with whom she's involved in a torrid, self-destructive affair. But at least in this moment, the two are clearly enraptured with each other. It is a beautifully shot scene, with the room bathed in warm, golden browns and yellows. The film is based on the celebrated play by Terence Rattigan, and the material should serve as a solid foundation for a powerful piece of work.

"The Deep Blue Sea" will begin its festival rounds with a premiere at TIFF, followed by an appearance at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and it will close the BFI London Film Festival in October. The film currently has no distributor but that will likely change soon. Clip below.
