now, your friendly neighborhood “Spider” pan.

A disappointing follow-up to 2011’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is a slow trudge devoid of suspense and adrenaline.

Without Oscar-nominated star Rooney Mara and director David Fincher of “Dragon,” the new movie doesn’t feel like a sequel, but rather a reboot that nobody asked for.

‘Una’ Review: Mara and Mendelsohn Are Captivating in Sexual Abuse Drama | TIFF 2016
BY MATT GOLDBERG While the film doesn’t always succeed in playing against expectations (especially near the end as the story seems as lost as Una with how to proceed), it forces the audience to sit with tough questions even when we think we already know the answers.

Rating: B+

Una does not currently have a U.S. release date.

UNA, starring Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara (Carol) and Ben Mendelsohn (upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival as a Special Presentation.on September 11, 2016.

This official still of the film features Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn. The film also stars Riz Ahmed (Jason Bourne).
When a young woman (Mara) unexpectedly arrives at an older man’s workplace (Mendelsohn), looking for answers, the secrets of the past threaten to unravel the new life he has created for himself. Their confrontation will uncover buried memories and unspeakable desires. It will shake them both to the core.
The film’s crew includes The Lobster DoP Thimios Bakatakis, Macbeth composer Jed Kurzel, Macbeth production designer Fiona Crombie, The Selfish Giant editor Nick Fenton as well as costume designer Steven Noble and hair and make¬up designer Jan Sewell, who both worked on The Theory of Everything.

The film is produced by Jean Doumanian and Patrick Daly alongside WestEnd Films. It is backed by Creative Scotland, Film4 and WestEnd Films, which is also handling world sales.
Robbie Allen, Senior Screen Executive at Creative Scotland, said: “We’re really pleased that Una will premier at Toronto.

Rooney Mara gets second nomination for Best Actress Oscar

Mochelle & Jeff

Watching Williams work is like seeing a figure from a documentary perform a fictional reënactment of her own life. She shifts between the two realities—what’s true in the world and what’s true onstage—without ever losing sight of her partner. She has control and, even more interesting, no control over where the role carries her. –New Yorker

Review: Michelle Williams soars with Jeff Daniels in Broadway’s disturbing ‘Blackbird’ –NY Daily News

As played with devastating rawness by Williams, she is alternately viperish, vengeful, sarcastic, bizarre, and desperate to reconnect. …Williams’s transparency is such that you take in both images, and many others, as a kind of flickering of the soul: terrifying, hard to square, but inarguably true. –Vulture

Williams is more stylized in her delivery, but there’s no doubt that she is fully experiencing her character’s anguish. Her performance calls attention to itself, but never in a gratuitous way. –LATimes
Her performance as Una is mannered to the point of distraction. It’s as if the sexual abuse her character suffered 15 years ago has caused not only a speech impediment but uncontrollable physical spasms that now affect her walk, gestures, and facial expressions.
As a film actress, Williams can be subtle and nuanced. On stage, she’s the opposite: showy and contrived. The result is an imbalance in performances that seriously undermines the drama between an unrepentant offender and his lost victim. -The Wrap
Williams has been nominated for Academy Awards three times, including one for her performance as Marilyn Monroe in My Weekend With Marilyn [Won Golden Globe]

[February 10]
Blackbird, David Harrower’s hard-hitting two-hander, began previews in Blackbird on February 5, with two shows at the Belasco. The wrenching drama may prove a hard sell to Broadway audiences, but it also stars two bonafide film stars in Jeff Daniels and Michelle Williams, who will probably aid its fortunes. It performed well out of the gate, filling 91 percent of the seats and taking in 66 percent of its potential box office. Average ticket price was $84.14.
[January 15]
Three-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams will play Una in David Harrower’s scorching play ‘Blackbird’ about an encounter between Ray, a male business executive, and Una, the woman he seduced 15 years earlier, when she was 12 years old, opening on Broadway in the spring.
Jeff Daniels will re-create the role he played in the 2007 Manhattan Theatre Club presentation of the 90-minute drama. Also revisiting the play is director Joe Mantello, who staged the earlier production. Michelle Williams recently appeared on Broadway opposite Alan Cumming in Cabaret.

Blackbird will play an 18-week limited engagement at the Belasco Theatre beginning February 5, with opening set for March 10.

Spring also has been mentioned as the release date for the Benedict Andrews-helmed film of the play, also adapted by Harrower and starring Rooney Mara (Carol) and Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline). The film is being produced by Jean Doumanian, a frequent Rudin co-producer. Eager to keep the critical momentum from Carol trucking along – for which she won the coveted actress award at the Cannes Film Festival in May – Rooney Mara’s next picture is for Benedict Andrews’ “intense, unflinching” love drama, Una. Previously titled Blackbird up until a recent switcheroo, the film marks the directorial debut for Andrews, who has carved out a career working on stage drama up until this point.
In the film, Mara – known for eye-catching turns in David Fincher’s The Social Network and English-language Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – stars opposite Ben Mendelsohn as a young, wide-eyed woman. Attracting the attention of Mendelsohn’s Ray, Mara’s humble protagonist shows up into his life unannounced, digging up past memories that he believed to have been long buried in the sand. What follows is a passionate, yet illicit affair, one which leaves Ray in jail and Mara’s Una on the search for answers.

July 23, 2014 I also hear that Suite Française with Michelle Williams [a fictional account of the German occupation of France] will not be boarding a vaporetto. There’s been speculation surrounding Stephen Frears’ Lance Armstrong project. The director has a long track record in Venice with The Queen and Philomena big hits, but it looks like it’s not ready.    Was Suite Francaise one of the films that was confirmed as being moved to 2015 or is that still us speculating?   The Weinstein Company has settled on release dates for a number of their films going into the fall.   Saul Dibb’s “Suite Francaise” is likely out of the running for 2014.   August 7, 2014  Do we even know if Michelle Williams’s Suite Francaise is coming out this year?

Only after her death in 1973 was Isherwood prepared to reveal that the inspiration for Sally came from Jean Ross, who in 1931 as a nineteen year old nightclub singer, who shared a lodging house with him.

Only after her death in 1973 was Isherwood prepared to reveal that the inspiration for Sally came from Jean Ross, who in 1931 as a nineteen year old nightclub singer, who shared a lodging house with him.

NYT The most conspicuous difference in this production is the bright blond actress portraying Sally, a role imperishably created for the Roundabout by Natasha Richardson. The promiscuous, hard-partying Sally is now embodied by a very brave Michelle Williams, who doesn’t look all that happy to be there. I’m assuming that’s more a matter of character interpretation than of personal discomfort, but it does put sort of a damper on the festivities.
Since Ms. Williams’s Broadway debut is the biggest news in this revival of Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb’s oft-reprised 1966 musical, let’s linger on her. As you probably know, she’s a fine screen actress, and very good onstage, too, as I can testify, having seen her in productions of “The Cherry Orchard” and Mike Leigh’s “Smelling a Rat.”
Given that she played Marilyn Monroe in the 2011 film “My Week With Marilyn,” for which she received an Oscar nomination, Ms. Williams obviously knows about wrestling with the ghosts of sexy performances past. But for some reason, she has chosen to tamp down any evidence of spontaneous sensuality.
With a lockjaw Mayfair accent that sometimes has her talking literally out of the side of her mouth and a sustained air of high tension, Ms. Williams’s Sally brings to mind more an anxiously slumming heiress out of Evelyn Waugh than the exuberantly hedonistic Sally of Christopher Isherwood’s “The Berlin Stories,” on which “Cabaret” is based (along with John Van Druten’s play “I Am a Camera”).    Mr. Mendes sees Sally as a quicksilver upper-middle-class Chelsea girl, happily escaping her past below    Though never previously known as a singer or dancer, Ms. Williams does just fine with her musical chores here. (And don’t forget that even though she was played by a top-form Liza Minnelli in the 1972 screen version of “Cabaret,” Sally was never meant to be very talented.)

Leading the Kit Kat girls in nightclub production numbers like “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Mein Herr” with a shiny, metallic vibrato, Ms. Williams comes closer to evoking the musical style of the Depression than any Sally I’ve seen. And for her climactic performance of the show’s title song, she has the shouty power and shell-shocked stare of someone who’s seen the future and knows that it’s terrifying.
But this Cassandra-like aspect is implicit in her performance from the beginning. That means that it’s harder than usual to credit her seduction of the cautious, bisexual Clifford Bradshaw (Bill Heck), who falls for her and the town of Berlin because they’re so much damned fun.

[March 29]

Mendes then

Mr. Mendes sees Sally as a quicksilver upper-middle-class Chelsea girl, happily escaping her past, not the madcap, belt-it-all-out American that Ms. Minnelli brought to life. ”I wanted somebody English, I wanted somebody mercurial, and fair, and effervescent,” said Mr. Mendes, who is co-directing the show with the American choreographer Rob Marshall. ”She believes in her potted dreams of stardom but, most important, she is not a successful singing star. She cannot control her voice. It always seemed odd to me that Liza should be singing in a little dive. She’s a Broadway star.”

Former president Nicolas Sarkozy is facing charges of illicit financing for his failed 2012 re-election bid. On May 17 2019, the Constitutional Council ruled that a criminal trial was justified on the grounds that it concerned “the potential breach of probity by candidates or elected officials.” Prosecutors claim Sarkozy spent nearly 43 million euros ($51 million) on his lavish re-election bid — almost double the legal limit of 22.5 million euros — using fake invoices, and demanded he answer the charges in court.

In France, being “placed under investigation” is a step that judicial investigators can take if they have serious grounds for suspecting an offense. It often but not always leads to trial.

Royal Air Force Typhoon fighter jets have intercepted two Russian transport aircraft.
The two Antonov AN-24 aircraft (NATO callsign ‘Coke’) were flying in international airspace close to Estonia from the south.
It is the sixth Quick Reaction Alert scramble and intercept since the RAF took over enhanced Air Policing from the German Air Force in May.

NATO Baltic Air policing duties have seen a change of guard at Ämari air base, west of Tallinn, with Eurofighter aircraft from the UK’s Royal Air Force replacing their German Luftwaffe counterparts. The four planes, Eurofighter Typhoon multi-role, twin-engine fighter jets, arrived towards the end of April, from XI(F) Squadron, based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, England.
NATO Baltic air policing duties operate from two bases; in addition to Ämari, the base at Šiauliai, Lithuania, is also utlilized for the role.

Planes from the latter base are frequently scrambled in interception and escort duties, responding to military flights from the Russian Federation in international airspace over the Baltic Sea, close to the Lithuanian coast, often without pre-filed flight plans or functioning transponders on the required frequency. Such flights usually involve planes flying to or from the Kaliningrad exclave, a part of the Russian Federation cut off from the rest of the country and bordering two EU and NATO states, Poland and Lithuania.

Also Hungarian and Spanish jets officially replaced Polish planes, at Šiauliai, BNS reports, citing the Lithunian defense ministry. Hungary, which is leading the NATO air policing role, has deployed four Swedish-manufactured Saab JAS 39 Gripen single-engine multi-role fighters, from the Magyar Légierő, that country’s air force. The Spanish Ejército del Aire contingent comprises five US-built McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, twin-engine jets.

Estonia joined NATO in 2004, and aircraft from 17 different countries have taken part in the air policing role since then, according to BNS. The mission took on a new immediacy following the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea.

Michelle Williams is expected to receive an Emmy nomination for Fosse/Verdon when they are announced next month. It would be her first. The show, though, hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire the way Murphy’s shows are pop culture centerpieces, and it lags behind “Fargo” in critical acclaim, standing at a serviceable 68 on Metacritic. But “Fosse/Verdon” did have its best episode of the season with the seventh hour, which focused on Bob Fosse (Rockwell) and Gwen Verdon‘s (Williams) original production of “Chicago” and featured a dynamite turn from Williams. Yahoo Entertainment/Goldderby.com

*5/31/19 update: The series came to a natural conclusion so it’s clear that there won’t be a second season of Fosse/Verdon.

Citigroup Japan

The Financial Services Agency imposed a fine of ¥130 million ($1.1 million) on Citigroup Global Markets Japan Inc for spoofing, for alleged manipulation of the futures market for Japanese government bonds.

The agency said Citigroup Global Markets Japan Inc. overlooked and executed fake trading orders, known as spoofing, for Japanese government bond futures on the Osaka exchange in late October 2018, placed by a trader at Citigroup Global Markets Ltd., the British securities subsidiary of Citigroup.
Spoofing is a practice in which traders attempt to manipulate the prices of publicly traded financial assets by placing large buy or sell orders with no intention of executing them. Critics have warned that high-speed trading could make it easier to engage in practices such as “layering” or “spoofing,” both of which involve placing fake orders to create the appearance of increased activity in a stock or other asset in order to move its price.
