‘Nine’ & ‘Lovely Bones’ debut
Soon, audiences will be able to see the final versions of “Nine” and “Lovely Bones”. From what we’ve heard so far, “Nine” is a top contender, but on the other hand, “Lovely Bones” has fallen short of the tall order.
“Mystery surrounds how Peter Jackson‘s “The Lovely Bones” will fare in top derby races. After it debuted at a royal premiere in London’s Leicester Square, the Sun crowned it “the best film of next year,” adding, “Yes, even better than the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy.””
“Mystery also surrounds the derby fate of “Nine” after it received mixed responses at early screenings. Audiences went wild for it at SAG nom com Q&As. But was that largely because they were blinded by the star wattage in attendance, including past Oscar champs Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench and Marion Cotillard?”
