Rachel Narrates “Sonic Sea” Documentary

Rachel Narrates “Sonic Sea” Documentary

We missed this news before, but Rachel is part of the cast, as narrator, of the documentary “Sonic Sea“. It’s a documentary about the impact of military and industrial ocean noise on marine life. The documentary is currently touring at festivals and theaters across the country. It screened earlier this year at the Wild & Science Film Festival were it received two awards, including the Jury Award. It will screen this weekend, on March 20, at the Environmental Film Festival in Washington.

Sonic Sea
Throughout the ocean, whales depend on sound to mate, find food, migrate, and defend against predators. A century ago the seas were silent, but now humans fill them with an unbearable cacophony – the sonic “bombs” of oil prospectors, the whirr of freight ships, the shrieks of military sonar – driving whales to death and disorientation. Sonic Sea, narrated by Rachel McAdams and featuring Sting, tells the story of Ken Balcomb, a former Navy officer who solved the tragic mystery of a mass stranding, and the global network of scientists working to limit our deadly clamor. Directed by Michelle Dougherty and Daniel Hinerfeld.

For more information about the documentary be sure to head over to the official website: www.sonicsea.org. The homepage of the desktop version will give you a preview of Rachel’s narration work.

Rachel Joins Jason Reitman’s “The Princess Bride” TIFF Live Read!

This is very exciting news: Writer/Director Jason Reitman announced on his official twitter account that Rachel is set to live read the role of Buttercup in the this year’s Toronto International Film Festival Jason Reitman Live Read event. The role of Buttercup was originated by Robin Wright in the movie. The festival previously released the following press release:

Inconceivable! The 40th Toronto International Film Festival® today revealed that The Princess Bride script is the subject of the Jason Reitman Live Read — a unique event in which classic movie scripts are read by contemporary actors. The script of Rob Reiner’s beloved classic will be presented to audiences in a one-take read-through with Reitman narrating stage direction on Saturday, September 12 at 6 p.m.

“The Princess Bride premiered at the Festival in 1987 and has captured audiences’ imaginations ever since,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. “To have this title return on the occasion of our 40th Festival, and be reexplored by a contemporary cast, is pure magic.”

Reitman has already announced that Donald Glover will read the role of Vizzini (originated by Wallace Shawn), Gael Garcia Bernal in the role of Inigo Montoya (originated by Mandy Patinkin), Georges Laraque in the role of Fezzik (originated by Andre the Giant) and Gage Munroe in the role of the grandson (originated by Fred Savage). The festival runs from September 10-20 and for more information about the live read event be sure to head over to the official website. Rachel will be on double festival duty with “Every Thing Will Be Fine” and “Spotlight” both playing at the festival.

We want to close this post with some fun facts because there are so many connections here. Fun fact #1: Jason Reitman mentioned at TIFF 2009 that he would love to work with Rachel, saying “I really love Rachel McAdams“.

Fun Fact #2: Rachel has worked with Robin Wright, who originally played Buttercup in the movie, two times now; They both starred in “State Of Play” and “A Most Wanted Man“. They both walked the red carpet for the New York premiere of the latter one in 2014.

Finally, fun fact #3: Over the years Rachel has expressed her love for “The Princess Bride” in various interviews. In 2005 she mentioned that the role of Buttercup played by Robin Wright was one of the roles that stuck with her growing up saying: “I loved Robin Wright Penn in The Princess Bride. I just thought she was so great. I love those quest films“. More recently she named “Princess Bride” as one of her favorite movies during the “Southpawpress junket interview with Collider (just like her co-star Jake Gyllenhaal).


Rachel Supports Greenpeace’s #SaveTheArctic Campaign

Greenpeace released a new campaign video to support the cause of Arctic protection. Rachel provides the voice for the polar bear. You can watch the video and official press release below. Be sure to head over to SaveTheArtic.org to find out how you can sign up to pledge.

Canadian award-winning actress Rachel McAdams is lending her support to the cause of Arctic protection through a new video from Greenpeace, director Jason van Bruggen and creative agency DOT DOT DASH. The video shows a lonely polar bear walking through urban landscapes and interacting with city-dwellers, while McAdams provides the voice for the bear, speaking about how she will soon be homeless as a result of climate change and Arctic oil drilling.

In June, McAdams appeared with actor and activist Jane Fonda at Toast the Coast in Vancouver, an event aimed at raising awareness about the dangers of Arctic oil drilling and tar sands projects. “The presence of oil companies in the Arctic brings with it great risk, not only to this already fragile environment but to our ecosystem as a whole,” said McAdams. “Accidents happen and the Arctic can’t afford that. It’s time to ask for cleaner, safer alternatives. Several alternatives already exist that can help create jobs and clean up our planet at the same time. I hope this video inspires others to take action on this important issue.”
