“Doctor Strange” is the main coverstory of the current issue of Entertainment Weekly (October 21 issue). We have added the magazine scans in our gallery. Rachel and producer Feige talked about wether Rachel’s character might dopt her own alter ego: Night Nurse in the movie. You can find the article after the jump. Further, Rachel revealed she prepared for her role by spending time in a hospital in London. Be sure to pick up your own copy of EW.
Rachel on preparing for her role: “Now, in a pinch, I could stich somebody up on the sidewalk with a lighther and a needle and some thread. So that’s exciting!”
Rachel on if she is playing the Night Nurse: “Mum’s the word on that one”
The promotion for the movie is expected to start the coming week. Marvel and Disney have promoted their #DoctorStrangeEvent on social media, and Rachel will reportedly talk to the press on October 19th. The world premiere of the movie will be held on October 20th and Rachel is expected to attend.
Rachel and her sister/make-up artist Kayleen are featured in the current issue of Elle Magazine (USA). Earlier this year Rachel and Kayleen attended the 8th Annual Dior Operation Smile Luncheon in Los Angeles. We previously added photo coverage of the event to our gallery, be sure to check out our previous post in case you missed it before. The Elle feature includes a beautiful new project of Rachel and Kayleen, and an interview they did with the magazine. We have added the magazine scan in our gallery and transcript of the interview in our press archive.
Rachel On Kayleen: “My beauty inspiration day-to-day is my sister [makeup artist Kayleen]. She’s comfortable in her skin and doesn’t feel the need to wear makeup every day, which in- spires me to do the same. She’s weaned me off my addiction to over-blushing, but she’s always up for trying out-there ideas.”
Interbridge is reporting Rachel will be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Thursday (October 20), presumably to promote “Doctor Strange“. Fingers crossed more talk shows will be announced the coming days, and we will update this post when that happens.

Th 10/20: Rachel McAdams
The world premiere of “Doctor Strange” will be held on October 20 in Los Angeles. For a full overview you can find an overview of the upcoming press tour in our sidebar.
Audible has announced a new slate of upcoming audiobook they will release, all performed by actors and other artists and Rachel is among them. Rachel has voiced the upcoming audiobook of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables“. The audiobook will be released on November 22nd and you can pre-order it already on Amazon.com.
With all of the pluck and charm of its eponymous young hero, Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Spotlight, Midnight in Paris) delivers a spectacular reading of Montgomery’s beloved bildungsroman. In moments both funny and bittersweet, McAdams’ voice is imbued with the spark that has made Anne a much-loved symbol of individualism and cheer for over a century. A story of “kindred spirits”, McAdams’ touching and heart-felt narration proves she is just that – bonded on a deep level – to this shimmering classic.
When aging brother and sister, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, decide to adopt an orphan boy to help with chores around their farm, Green Gables on Prince Edward Island, neither are prepared for the feisty and imaginative redheaded girl that is mistakenly brought to them instead. Nor are they prepared for the way in which she will change their lives. Through a series of hilarious misadventures, Anne’s uncompromising spirit makes her striking presence in the close-knit village, bringing new friendships, first crushes, and, for her foster parents, a love and openness unimaginable before her arrival
Fun fact: Rachel has named the television series adaption of “Anne of Green Gables” as her inspiration to act. She told Hello! Canada earlier this year: “For me it [film/series that inspired her to act] was called Anne of Green Gables that I watched when I was young — about 150 times! It was just a really great performance.” She also told Marie Claire that the series was one of the films/series she use to watch growing up with her family.
Screen Daily is reporting that Rachel is attached to star alongside Rachel Weisz in the upcoming adaption of “Disobedience“. Filming is expected to start this winter. Fun fact: Rachel and Rachel Weisz both worked on Terrence Malick’s “To The Wonder“. However, Weisz’s scenes didn’t make the final cut.
Spotlight star attached to New York-set drama from Element Pictures and Braven Films.
Spotlight star Rachel McAdams is attached to star alongside Rachel Weisz in Chilean director Sebastián Lelio’s (Gloria) Disobedience. The film is an adaptation of author Naomi Alderman’s novel of the same name.
As well as starring in the film, Oscar-winner Weisz is also set to produce alongside Room producer Ed Guiney of Dublin-based Element Pictures and Spanish producer Frida Torresblanco (Pan’s Labyrinth) of New York-based Braven Films.
Room and Carol financiers Film4 are backing the project. Lelio has co-written the script with British dramatist and screenwriter Rebecca Lenkiewicz, who collaborated with Polish film-maker Pawel Pawlikowski on the screenplay of Oscar-winner Ida. A London shoot is planned for this winter.
Alderman’s novel revolves around Ronit, the estranged daughter of a rabbi, who returns from New York to the Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood she grew up in North London, following her father’s death. Her arrival causes upheaval in the quiet community.
McAdams recently shot Marvel fantasy Doctor Strange. Weisz recently wrapped production on Fox Searchlight title My Cousin Rachel opposite Sam Claflin and also has the James Marsh drama The Mercy due for release next year.
Variety also confirms the report, and is reporting the movie is expected to start first quarter of 2017 and also reports that Weisz is expected to play Ronit, while Rachel is expected to play Esti. You can find their story after the jump.
With a little over a month until the US release of “Doctor Strange“, the promotion has kicked off. We will round-up the latest news in this post. First of all, Marvel & IMAX have announced you are able to see a 15 minutes 3D IMAX preview in theaters. These previews will screen in theaters in the US and Canada and you are able to get your free tickers on SeeItFirst.com. Secondly, we have added the digital Empire magazine (UK) scans in our gallery. The magazine is on newsstands right now, so be sure to pick up your copy! Empire exclusively released a new still of Rachel and Benedict, which we previously added to our site. Thirdly, Marvel has lifted their embargo of the on-set visit from earlier this year in London. Sadly, Rachel wasn’t on set that day – according to producer Feige, she was already 99% done with filming – but the articles thus far give great insight into the movie and filmmaking proces. You can find an overview of the articles released after the jump.
Another production still of “Doctor Strange” was released earlier today as well as the first character posters, which includes a great one of Rachel as Christine Palmer. We have added them in our gallery. The movie will be out on October 25 in the UK and on November 4 in the US. The world red carpet premiere will be held on October 20 in Los Angeles.
