“Life Of Crime” Gallery Update

August 30th 2015 • by Jess • No Comments"Life Of Crime", Gallery Updates

The Gallery has recently been updated with photos from Isla’s 2013 release Life Of Crime, including stills, posters, trailer screencaptures and HD film screencaptures. Isla played Melanie in the comedy-crime film. While not one of my favourite movies of Isla’s, she did play a pivotal and interesting role, and she brought her usual charm and humour to the film!

Melanie: “I mean, you’re a hunk, but you’re a piss-poor extortionist if you don’t mind me saying. Let’s be honest, this could’ve been set-up a whole lot better.”

First trailer and stills from “Visions”

August 6th 2015 • by Jess • No Comments"Visions", Gallery Updates, Videos

The first trailer for Isla’s creepy new thriller Visions has just been released, and accompanying it are the first poster and a big batch of stills from the movie. Isla plays the role of Eveleigh in the film directed by Kevin Greutert. Visions will be released in Singapore on September 17th. No word on any international release dates as yet unfortunately…. it’s been too long since we’ve seen Isla on screen!!

Leaving her hectic city lifestyle behind, young mother-to-be Eveleigh joins her husband David at their beautiful new vineyard home only to be plagued by terrifying noises and visions of a sinister hooded figure. No one else hears or sees these hallucinations, not even David, who grows increasingly worried about his wife’s well-being.

Desperate to prove her sanity, Eveleigh hunts down locals who reveal the haunted history of the vineyard in which she now resides. But when the pieces come together, the answer is far different – and more dangerous to her and her baby – than she ever imagined.

More ‘Arrested Development’ Coming to Netflix in Mid-2016, Says Producer Brian Grazer

Production will start early next year, he told the “Adam Carolla Show” Tuesday

There will definitely be more “Arrested Development,” and sooner rather than later, according to Brian Grazer.

The super-producer shared the news on Tuesday’s “Adam Carolla Show” podcast. Grazer said he spoke with Fox Studios on Monday, and everyone is on board. As a matter of fact, Grazer told Carolla that he broke the news to Mitch Hurwitz from the popular podcast’s greenroom.

“Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” he told Carolla. Production is slated to begin after Jan. 1.

Fans can expect new episodes “four months after that,” Grazer added.

The producer previously revealed that 17 episodes were in the works for the show that Netflix revived in 2013.

“Arrested Development” originally ran for three seasons on Fox from 2003-06.

Carolla tends to record his podcasts the evening before they post.

ING banks on actress Isla Fisher to spearhead new branding campaign

ING banks on actress Isla Fisher to spearhead new branding campaign

Five years since dropping comedian Billy Connolly in favour of a talking orang-utan, ING Direct is betting on actress Isla Fisher to power its latest assault in the ­competitive $4.3 trillion banking market.

As several banks, including ANZ and ME Bank, refresh their marketing, ING will today unveil Fisher as its first celebrity ambassador since Connolly and the face of a new advertising campaign to power its strategy of trying to be customers’ “primary bank”.

Led by Fisher — who holds an ING Orange Everyday transaction account — rallying customers to share their experiences, the campaign launched through social media channels on Friday before a wider assault on June 14 across television, cinema and digital.



ING, the nation’s fifth-largest mortgage lender, hopes encouraging customers to share their experiences will show others “how banking can be”, while giving the bank with insight into how it can improve products and services.

“Given the existence of social media, it’s happening anyway. Our customers talk a lot about us,” ING chief Vaughn Richtor told The Australian, adding the bank’s leading net promoter score — a measure of customer advocacy — provided confidence to “amplify” the discussion. “They say nice things about us, they also say things we should start doing or things we could do better, either way it’s valuable as we’re human beings and we don’t get it right every time but what we do look for is continuous improvement and the only way to do that is do those things customers truly value.

“It’s not some vague promise it’s actually what we deliver … a broad range of products and a great experience.”
