I’m in the mood for lists today, and I think that’s a good enough excuse to rank (from favorite to least) the exceedingly popular Nicole Kidman Action Figure Line ™.
1- Horror/Thriller Nicole (The Others, The Interpreter, Birthday Girl)
2- Musical! Nicole! (Moulin Rouge)
3- Night Glamour Nicole (various red-carpet events)
4- Serious Thespian Nicole (The Human Stain, Eyes Wide Shut)
5- Tabloid Nicole (sigh)
6- “Comedy” Nicole (The Stepford Wives, Bewitched)
Keeping my preference for the Horror/Thriller model, I hope you’ll understand my excitement about Nic’s upcoming vehicle The Invasion (opening Aug. 17), an update of Invasion of the Body Snatchers co-starring Daniel Craig. Not even the fact that it began shooting in September 2005 and has gone through dreaded “reshoots” can diminish my eagerness to see this. Come on, now, the trailer (embedded below, courtesy of AOL Movies) doesn’t look half bad, especially that moment with Nicole trying not to betray her human emotion while those folks march off a roof to their imminent death. Creepy!
