Nine
Director: Rob Marshall
Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cottilard, Penelope Cruz, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren, Judi Dench, Fergie
Opening: 25 November 2009
Distributor: The Weinstein Company


Leave it to Daniel Day-Lewis to flummox fans. After winning the Oscar for his bravura performance as a wily turn of the century oil baron in There Will Be Blood, the unconventional actor has now jumped headlong into Rob Marshall’s big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical take on Fellini’s 8 1/2. That’s right, it’s a singing and dancing Day-Lewis who’ll be helping the Chicago helmer bring this baffling tuner into obvious Academy attention. And as the ladies in the fictional filmmaker Guido Contini’s life? Well, we have none other than Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench, Kate Hudson, Stacy Ferguson, and Sophia Loren. There’s over seven little gold statues among the cast alone. While some fear that Marshall is a one hit wonder (the Chicago follow-up, Memoirs of a Geisha, was less than successful at the box office), the talent involved should pull him through. Should.

Since first coming onto the R&B music scene in 2005, Trey Songz has created many hits. His first two albums, ‘I Gotta Make It” (2005) and ‘Trey Day’ (2007) had numerous singles such as “Girl Tonight”, “Just Gotta Make It”, “Last Time” and “Can’t Help But Wait”. The latter song gave Trey Songz a Grammy nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, and also affirmed that Trey Songz is one very promising R&B artist.


Now Ready is released, and is currently #2 on Amazon’s R&B Sales Charts, and #3 on iTunes Album Sales Charts.
