In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard and eager rookie Constable Stalker take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.
It has been released the first theatrical trailer for Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women, which stars Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet and Emma Watson. In case you might have missed it, Saoirse plays Jo March – the second-eldest of the March sisters. Director Greta Gerwig’s spoke briefly with Entertainment Weekly in honor of the trailer release, about casting Saoirse for the role of Jo. The trailer and the piece of article can be found below. Little Women is set to be released in theaters on December 25, 2019.
For her tomboyish heroine Jo and romantic hero Laurie, Gerwig reteamed with her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet (both of whom appear, by the looks of the trailer, to have been born for these iconic roles). “I just adore them. They are just spectacular as live actors, and there is some true pairing between them that feels like [it’s] in the tradition of great cinematic pairing,” the filmmaker tells EW and PEOPLE. “I don’t know what they do — I mean, it’s magic. I direct them, but it’s all there.”
The production company Working Title has posted a short video of Saoirse on the set of “Mary Queen of Scots” to their Youtube channel. It goes with a picture that had previously been shared on Twitter of a super “angry” Saoirse dressed as Mary Stuart, the character she plays in the film.
Saoirse was on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 yesterday! She was promoting “Mary Queen of Scots”, which is now in theaters in England. The show’s official Twitter account has shared a video of her visit, and our gallery has been updated with a picture of her with Tom Hiddleston and the crew, plus candids of her outside the studio.
"I was playing her when I was very, very, very homesick."
Saoirse Ronan felt she had a *lot* in common with her character in Brooklyn.

Saoirse was on The Graham Norton Show last night to promote “Mary Queen of Scots”! She got to spend some time with her “Lady Bird”, “Little Women” and “The French Dispatch” co-star Timothee Chalamet – At this point we just assume they have a joint contract. Actress Laura Linney and actor Stephen Mangan were also on the episode, and you can watch a video of it below.
We’ll be keeping our eyes out for the full episode!
Gold Derby has released a new interview with Saoirse! She talked to senior editor Joyce Eng about the evolution of “Mary Queen of Scots” through the years, the misconceptions about Mary Stuart and working with Margot Robbie on that one climactic scene in the film. You can watch it below.
