For this week’s Film Friday we decided to spotlight one of Rachel’s less known movies: “The Lucky Ones“. The movie premiered during the Toronto International Film Festival in 2008. Rachel stars alongside Tim Robbins and Michael Peña as Colee. This is one of my favorite performances of Rachel so I would recommend watching this for everyone who hasn’t seen it. I think this role is more of a stretch for Rachel and she proves how versatile she is as an actress. We added the HD/Blu-Ray captures in our gallery and we also moved and updated the complete movie section to our new gallery.

I am currently going through my magazine collection scanning all the magazine we don’t have in our gallery or I will replace scans we have with better quality ones. Today I added Rachel’s Times Magazine from New York Magazine in our gallery. Rachel graced the cover of the fall 2008 issue to promote “The Lucky Ones“. More information can you read here and you can (re-)read the interview in our press archive.
Please credit our site if you use or repost these scans anywhere else since they are scanned exclusively for Rachel McAdams Online! We are also working on expanding our content and getting pages up-to-date again.
Hello Everyone! Rachel was on the Today show this morning an I managed to record it for all you fantastic visitors and fans. Sorry about the flv quality, when the video archive site goes up, it will be a clearer video, I promise . Enjoy!
I finally got around to adding all the caps from Rachel’s movie “The Lucky Ones”. Hope you like them and have fun looking at all 2947 Caps!
