Carey Mulligan is reportedly engaged to Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford.
The ‘Never Let Me Go’ actress ‘ who was first spotted with the folk musician at an intimate concert in Nashville in February ‘ was showing off her engagement ring to guests at Babington House in Somerset, South West England, over the weekend.
A witness told The Sun newspaper: ‘Carey looked like the cat who had got the cream. She was wearing a beautiful ring and didn’t seem to mind who saw it.
“They were stuck to each other like glue. She was doing most of the talking and he was hanging on her every word.”
Carey, 26, and Marcus, 24, have been inseparable since they began their relationship, often spending time together at the ‘Roll Away Your Stone’ singer’s London home, as well as enjoying a break together to the Orkney Islands in Scotland in March and most recently Carey joined Marcus on the Mumford & Sons’ ‘Railroad Revival’ tour in Arizona.
Carey, 26, has previously dated ‘Transformers’ star Shia LeBoeuf, while Marcus, 24, split with fellow folk singer Laura Marling not long before meeting Carey.
“Wall Street” Sequel’s Release Date Pushed Back. The anticipated sequel to the Oliver Stone cult classic “Wall Street” has been pushed back for five months. “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” was originally slated to hit theaters on April 23, but will now unspool on September 24. 20th Century Fox is apparently hoping its gala release at the Cannes Film Festival will give Stone a chance to launch the film in an international platform. Deadline Hollywood also cites the World Cup as the culprit. Sources said that while the soccer tournament doesn’t overly interest the U.S., the same cannot be said for the other countries so the international box office performance of the film will likely suffer in the summer. With a scarce marketing campaign, pushing back the film, which sees Michael Douglas reprise his iconic role as Gordon Gekko, may be a great idea. “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” also stars Shia LaBeouf as his new protégé, Josh Brolin, Susan Sarandon, Frank Langella, and Carey Mulligan
The last time Oscar presenters had to rattle off 10 names in the Best Picture category was in 1943, when “Casablanca” sealed its beautiful friendship with moviegoers. History has proven the Academy Award voters correct in choosing “Casablanca” from a formidable group of contenders that included “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “Heaven Can Wait.” On Sunday, we’ll again be treated to scenes from 10 Best Picture hopefuls – a move spurred by last year’s outrage over the snubbing of “The Dark Knight,” a fan and critic favorite that didn’t even make the longtime standard list of five nominees. But with this year’s mix ranging from box office behemoths like “Avatar” to more subtle fare like “An Education,” we’re in for a game of Oscar roulette. There’s a chance that a split vote could yield a top flick that will please just about no one – save, of course, for the winner. While “Casablanca” has done well with posterity, not every pre-1943 winner from fields that raged from five to 12 stands up to subjective scrutiny all these years later. “The Great Ziegfeld” topped nine competitors in 1936, beating the more enduring “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town” and “A Tale of Two Cities.” The next year, “The Life of Emile Zola” somehow bested “Captains Courageous,” “The Awful Truth,” “Lost Horizon,” “A Star is Born” and five others. Perhaps the biggest upset of the long-list nominee era came in 1941 when the very good “How Green Was My Valley” won out over nine films that included “The Maltese Falcon” and “Citizen Kane.” The visually innovative and psychologically aware “Citizen Kane” was an industry game-changer – much like “Avatar,” whose enveloping 3-D performance-capture technology already is exercising an influence. “Avatar,” not incidentally, also is the biggest moneymaker of all-time (though when you adjust for inflation 1939 Best Picture winner “Gone With the Wind” is still the champ). More than just the denizens of Pandora will be blue if “Avatar” loses the top prize. But “The Hurt Locker” and “Precious” are strong contenders, both with themes and backstories that appeal to Oscar voters. If “The Hurt Locker” wins, it would become the first Oscar winner directed by a woman (Kathryn Bigelow). If “Precious” wins, it would be the first Best Picture directed by an African-American (Lee Daniels). There’s also added drama here, the kind Academy voters love: “Avatar” director James Cameron and Bigelow used to be married, also raising the tension for the Best Director contest, which includes Daniels. mWhile those three movies have gotten the most pre-Oscar buzz, it’s possible that this year’s revised ballot – in which Academy voters ranked their favorites in order – could yield a surprise winner. We could live with a victory by the excellent “Up,” “Inglourious Basterds” or “District 9.” The Hollywood honchos are just hoping to avoid a situation like last year when the worthy, but below-the-radar “Slumdog Millionaire” took the Oscar home. The truth is that many viewers probably will shut off the TV in disgust if “Avatar” doesn’t win. So here’s some advice to “Avatar” fans: focus on the years Oscar got it right, such as in 1943 with “Casablanca.” And remember, no matter what happens, we’ll always have Pandora.
