If you’ve only seen Gemma Arterton in big budget productions like Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans and Prince of Persia, you’re really missing out. Lucky for you, Arterton has something new hitting theaters on August 6th and while The Disappearance of Alice Creed may not have been showered with cash and effects like those other productions, it’s certainly far more powerful.

Arterton stars as Alice Creed, the poor young woman Vic and Danny (Eddie Marsan and Martin Compston) target in their kidnapping scheme. They confine their terrified victim to a room while they move along with their plan to make some quick cash at her expense. What Vic and Danny don’t know is that Alice has no intentions of being a good hostage and obeying their orders; she wants to fight back and survive. Read More

“The Disappearance of Alice Creed” opens with a bravura, wordless sequence in which two men plan and carry out the abduction of a young woman. From there the film takes place solely in an apartment and an abandoned building with a cast of only three performers. As the men attempt to extract a ransom from the woman’s wealthy father, their clockwork plan spins off-course.

“It was entirely on purpose,” said writer-director J Blakeson of the film’s terse, oblique simplicity. “I started with the fact it was going to be a contained film before I even had a story. I knew I was going to write a film I could direct myself even if nobody gave me any money to do it.” Read More

So the other day I had the pleasure of interviewing British actress and all-around gorgeous creature Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia, Clash of the Titans, Quantum of Solace). Gemma was promoting her new (in the U.S.) film, The Disappearance of Alice Creed, a taught kidnapping thriller which I viewed the day prior. It was a 25 minute round-table press thingy – me and three other writers – so you could say I didn’t quite get every question in. But what little connection we had left both of us reeling at the possibilities of life, art, and love. The following is a record of the words and the emotion behind them… Read More

Up-and-coming British actress Gemma Arterton is more than just the pretty face who appeared on screen earlier this year in “Clash of the Titans” and “Prince of Persia.” A graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, with years of experience on the London stage, the 24-year-old actress tackles the most demanding role of her film career in the new thriller “The Disappearance of Alice Creed.” Arterton portrays the title character, a kidnapping victim held hostage by a pair of ransom-seeking thugs (played by Eddie Marsan and Martin Compston).

Q: Talk about both the emotional and physical challenges of this role. Read More

“Clash of the Titans” starlet and ex-Bond girl Gemma Arterton said last night during the Manhattan premiere of her newest effort “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” that she’s enamoured with New York.

“My friend told me to go to this hot dog store — there was a secret phone booth in the store. After we said how many people there were a secret door opened. I loved it,” the 24-year-old British-born brunette stunner said.

Niteside told Arterton she was talking about PDT, the secret speakeasy on St. Marks Place. The starlet also waxed nostalgic about her first visit to the city.

“The first time I came here I was 17 with my father, and he said I was destined to move here,” smiled Gemma. “I have a real love affair with it but I’m too close to London. It’s just got a cooler vibe than London.“ Read More
