Anna Promotes Up in the Air on Flight, Twitter, New Moon Promo

EDIT: An article from Hitfix on the event is now out, and they say the video interview of Anna ‘on a plane’ will be up sometime this week :P {20,000 ft. ‘Up in the Air’ with ‘New Moon’s’ Anna Kendrick}

Yesterday Anna opted out of the governor’s ball and instead helped promote Up in the Air, literally, in the air. Paramount flew Anna and 50 journalists from New York to Los Angeles. The in-flight showing was Up in the Air :D . Here’s Hitflix Gregory Elwood’s tweet from the plane!

Tweetering from 20,000 (?) feet. Movie should start soon and interviews too!

Anna Kendrick just introduced ‘Up in the Air’ which we’re going to watch.

I’ve actually already seen it so I interview Anna while the rest of the journos watch on, yes, small screen.

We fly to LA. Most of us are LA based. Took off from NY. {Up in the Air Literally}

Anna made her own tweet about the unusual affair, about 18 hours ago from web:

# Holy airborne press junket batman. That was crazy. Thank you to everyone who came out!! We should all fly across the country again soon.

She also mentions a video clip where New Moon screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg speaks proudly about what a talented actress Anna is, 6:29 PM Nov 11th from web :

# Was just sent this clip: http://bit.ly/48tXXi and by the end I saw why. RELIEVED and genuinely thrilled! :)

Speaking of New Moon, check out this new Jessica/Bella promo:


Perhaps this is from the improv scene mentioned above? Thanks Danielle for the tip! :)

Blackbook Magazine Interview, Hollywood Reporter Clips

Anna’s done a new interview with Blackbook Magazine, longer and more juicy than the last. Here are some excerpts:

There’s a picture online of Robert Pattinson kissing you. Do people tease you about that?
I have seen fans comment on places that post them, but no one in person has ever said anything but nice things to me about being in Twilight. The fans, when you are removed from them and they’re on the internet, can seem a little scary and overwhelming. Even at the premiere, which was loud and massive and crazy, once you got up to the fans to start signing stuff, they were really warm and respectful.
With Up in the Air getting so much positive buzz, does it feel like you’re approaching a career turning point?
I’ve been pretty lucky in terms of the films I’ve been in, and having a slow and steady build. I have done smaller films that a lot of people in the industry have seen, and I feel sort of fortunate that it hasn’t been this overnight thing. I’m hoping that it continues to be this slow and steady thing so that I can take a deep breath and get used to it.
Are you embracing life in Los Angeles?
I’ve been living here for a few years now, and at first I was really fighting it. When I first got here somebody told me that it takes a year to really embrace it and I think it took me a little bit longer. Growing up back East and coming to L.A. when you’re 18 is quite a culture shock. But yeah, it’s home now and I’ve kind of learned how to navigate. {Anna Kendrick on Robert Pattinson and Impending Stardom}

Smart girl eh? Sounds like she’s not denying the inevitable fame that Up in the Air is bringing, but not letting it get to her head, either. There is also a great new video segment and interview of Anna during the Next Gen Awards, that you can view in HD from The Hollwood Reporter:

Press: Cinablend Interview, MTV Hollywood Crush Video Interview, New Moon Promo

It looks like Up in the Air Press is in full swing, here is an interview with Anna, Vera Farmiga, Jason Reitman, and Walter Kirn from CinemaBlend:

With all of the Oscar buzz surrounding the film, is there any competition between you two actresses?

Kendrick: I’ve got a hit out on Vera. AH! [Farmiga pushes Kendrick, they laugh.]
Kendrick: I’m going to Nancy Kerrigan you’re ass. [Everyone laughs]
Farmiga: Oh, sir, there is no competition.
Kendrick: Oh! What?

You’ve been working since you were young, but before this movie, people didn’t really know who you were. Can you tell us about where you’ve come from and what this has done for you?

Kendrick: I grew up in Portland, Maine and I started in theater in New York when I was 12 actually. I did a show on Broadway when I was 12. I started to get into film and television when I was about 17 and eventually sort of moved to L.A. and, you know, tried to work and stuff. I think it’s a little bit weird to start working at 12 and still be thought of as a newcomer but it’s cool. I’d rather be a newcomer than old news. (Interview: Up In The Air’s Jason Reitman, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick and Walter Kirn}

MTV’s Hollywood Crush has added a clip from a new Press interview from Up in the Air. In the clip released, however, Anna speaks about what she thought about the soon-to-be released Twilight sequel, New Moon:

“It’s very good. People are going to be very happy,” Jessica told MTV News, despite the fact that her character, Bella’s gossipy friend Jessica, figures less prominently in the sequel. “The difference for me personally between ‘Twilight’ and ‘New Moon’ was, I just wasn’t there for as much of filming ‘New Moon’ as I was for ‘Twilight.’

Anna’s absence, however, may have been a good thing since it allowed her to see much of the film with new eyes. “It was fun to see just tons and tons of stuff that I had forgotten was in the script,” she said. “And you know, these beautiful action sequences look incredible.

“I mean, people are always going to love the first one, but I think the second one is really great.” We have a feeling it’s going be great too, Anna.{Anna Kendrick Gives Us Her Mini-Review Of ‘New Moon’: ‘The Action Sequences Look Incredible’}

London Film Festival Round-Up, New Moon Promo

Just Jared has updated us with high quality photos of Anna at the London Up in the Air screening yesterday, as well as the After Party that took place at Asia De Cuba following the screening. Interesting is that Scott Pilgrim director and Anna’s rumored beau Edgar Wright was in attendance – coincidence or something more? Have your say in the forums. I have also updated other recent appearances:

There is also a new promo pic of Jessica and Bella at the movies, this is from a gaming card collection (thanks Danielle):

A reminder to ask before using our photos in your Anna site — especially if you are going to tag them as your own. As you can see we credit our sources.

First New Moon Promo Shot! Media & Press

It’s tiny but here’s the first official photo of the humans in New Moon, featured on the 2010 calendar:


Here’s another clip of Jason Reitman introducing the cast before the screening of Up in the Air at TIFF:

And lastly, another cute article on Anna and Clooney/Pattinson:
“I think we have a more father-daughter relationship in the film. I think we almost cultivated that relationship in real life too. George at one point set an age limit for boys I was allowed to date, so it was not a crush on George Clooney kind of situation.” {Edmontonsun.com}

New Moon Trailer!

Posted on Fri, 11 September 2009 02:49:09 by annakendrick

Right after the Up in the Air trailer we get another trailer for one of Anna’s upcoming movies – The Twilight Saga: New Moon! The quality isn’t the best but you can still catch “Jessica” at the .46 mark:

EDIT II: The trailer is back online, click for HD!!


“So..you’re an adrenaline junkie now..?” Looks like Anna as Jessica Stanley will be just as hilar as in the first film ;-O.What do you guys think of the trailer? Personally I think it looks riveting and I’m not even too much of a Twilight fan!

EDIT I: Unfortunately Summit sniped the video off youtube, lucky for us however, I did manage to make one screen shot of the scene I am referring to above.

Comments:

Media Update, New Moon time tables, Twitter updates

Posted on Mon, 24 August 2009 09:54:50 by annakendrick

I’ve added the first half of Anna’s episode of Fear Itself: The Spirit Box to our media center. Also, all the photos should be back up now:


Twilight Source has an interview with New Moon producer Wyck Godfrey. When asked what the hardest thing to shoot was, he mentions how they had to schedule all the school scenes around Anna’s busy schedule, coinciding with the real school being in session, and how it was utter chaos:
Wyck: So the absolute most absurd thing we ever did. Well, last year, for Twilight, we shot all the school scenes while they were all on vacation. Yeah, so the interiors, all the interiors, were on their spring break. Right? So this time for all of our school stuff we had to shoot it while [Anna Kendrick], the actress playing Jessica, was available. There were a lot of scheduling problems. So the only time we could shoot it was when school was in session. so basically we were trying to shoot these scenes while the kids were literally in between classes, screaming bloody murder because every time they see a glimpse of Rob they just go crazy. It was chaos. . . {http://twilightsource.com/mattsetvisit_wyck.php}

Anna tweeted about the new Up in the Air posters, she also put up a Bio:

Pale, awkward and very very small. Form an orderly queue, gents.

I probably would have chosen different adjectives but hey ;D! She is also a fan of CNN, Film School Rejects, SlashFilm, Cinematical, and Rolling Stone.
