The Island - Press Archive - Hello
Golden Girl Scarlett at NY Island Premiere
12 JULY 2005
Sean Bean, who plays - you
guessed it - the baddie, with
his date, actress Georgina
Slipped into a gleaming sheath dress, with her hair swept back in carefully
dishevelled curls, Hollywood golden girl Scarlett Johansson was on
glowing form at the New York premiere of her latest movie, The Island.
The multi-faceted 20-year-old was joined by several of her co-stars,
including screen hunk Michael Clarke Duncan and arch-baddie Sean Bean,
at the glitzy event. The sci-fi action thriller, which hits UK cinemas in
mid-August, boasts a roster of current Tinseltown hotties and promises
to be one of the year's major summer blockbusters.
It also features some fun names: Scarlett takes on the role of
Jordan Two Delta, and her partner in the dramatic fight for life is
Lincoln Six Echo aka Ewan McGregor. The Scottish heart-throb
has admitted he's expecting to take some flak back home for
accepting the lead role in such a shamelessly commercial movie.
But Sean Bean once again springs with alacrity to his now-acknowledged
role as everyone's favourite mean man, though he might have been
disappointed that his character is rather tamely named Merrick.
Michael Clarke Duncan did much better - he fills the screen as Starkweather.
