Slumdog Millionaire photo update

I have added a couple of rare production stills (unfortunately in very small sizes, for now) as well as a picture from the promotional photoshoot for Slumdog Millionaire! As soon as I get the pictures in better quality, they will be replaced. Needless to say, Freida looks fantastic in every single photo. Is she even capable of taking a bad picture? Anyways, enjoy!

Slumdog Millionaire sizzles wide

Fox Searchlight awards favorite Slumdog Millionaire was the darling of the weekend box office as it successfully opened nationwide for the first time in its run.

Buoyed by its 10 Oscar nominations, including one for best picture, Slumdog grossed an estimated $10.6 million from 1,411 runs for a per-location average of $7,477. Ticket sales were up 80%, while the film placed No. 5 overall. Total gross is $55.9 million in its 11th weekend.

Danny Boyle’s pic isn’t an easy sell considering it is set in India and is partly in Hindi. Yet the movie played strongly in markets across the country, including such locales as Columbia, S.C., and Butte, Mont.

“The film has exploded into the mainstream audience because of the Golden Globe Awards, the Academy nominations and now the Producers Guild of America best film award,” said Searchlight senior VP of distribution Sheila DeLoach.

Or, as an exec from a big studio said, “It has become the go-to film.”

Freida breaks off engagement?

Freids breaks off engagement?Nothing talks like success. Ask Freida Pinto who shot to fame after playing Latika in the award-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire . No longer is Freida the girl next door who lived a simple life prior to the film’s release. After receiving rave reviews for her performance, Freida’s future only looks brighter.

Consequently, her newfound success has changed many things in her life. And that includes her relationship status. According to an industry insider, Freida recently broke up with her Bangalore-based fiancé. “Success is what prompted the actress to cut off all past ties that could pose as a barrier between her and the dizzying heights of fame post Slumdog Millionaire. She now knows that bigger things are in store for her. She was engaged to someone from Bangalore and all was well until Slumdog Millionaire released and everyone applauded the film. It went on to win four Golden Globe awards. Evidently, Freida didn’t want to get caught up in the regular routine life just when her career was taking off. So, she decided to call off the engagement and instead concentrate on her career,” said the source.
