There is a moment in the film Tamara Drewe when the sultry Gemma Arterton wears a tight red top and a skimpy pair of hotpants. It’s a deeply provocative image that was used on the poster for the film in France.

Her new film project is as intriguing as Arterton herself. In the film, which is a celluloid version of Posy Simmonds’ cult cartoon novel, Arterton plays the eponymous lead, a girl who leaves rural Dorset to seek fame as a journalist, only to return to her childhood home when her mother dies.

Central to the plot is Drewe’s reinvention of herself. As a schoolgirl, she was a dowdy, almost ugly, girl with a huge nose. Arterton had to wear a prosthetic nose and greasy hair. Her return as a beautiful femme fatale was as unexpected as it was electrifying, but through flashbacks we learn that the catalyst for her transformation from caterpillar to butterfly was a nose job that transformed her looks and bolstered her confidence.

She’s one of British cinema’s hottest young things and her latest film looks set to cement her reputation as a smouldering sexpot. But, finds Rob Driscoll, Gemma Arterton has a lot more going for her than that

As entrances go, Gemma Arterton’s arrival as the title character of her new movie Tamara Drewe is a memorable one – dressed as she is in a tiny pair of denim shorts which leave little to the imagination.

Then, having sashayed along a country lane in the rear-hugging cut-offs, she is then required to climb over a stile – much to the fascination of a handful of goggle-eyed local yokels.

The scene is both sexy and hilarious – and will undeniably send 24-year-old Arterton’s rating on the radar of her adoring male fanbase hurtling even higher. Read More

I’ve scanned the German DVD cover and booklet of Tess of the D’Urbervilles, and there’s a gorgeous new pic with Gemma and James McAvoy from last year’s Empire Awards. :D

Planeta Disney has released a new international poster for Disney’s big 2010 release — Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. The poster is definitely stylistic graphically and is trying to push the film’s style across visually while trying to hint that the story is epic. It is also obvious from the poster’s style that the same team that did the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy are in full force.

In other news, I’ve added a beautiful new still from Tess.
