The sequel to the award-winning Escape from Extinction introduces rewilding, a proven method for sustainable conservation that has the potential to bring back hundreds of thousands of species from the brink of extinction. Rewilding is a transformative conservation strategy that prioritizes the restoration of natural ecosystems by reintroducing native species – both plant and animal – particularly apex predators and keystone species. This innovative approach restores ecological balance and enhances biodiversity, while generating farther-reaching impacts, such as strengthening our local and global food systems, mitigating climate change, and offering significant socio-economic benefits to communities. Escape from Extinction Rewilding is a powerful and timely documentary that delves into this critical conservation practice. Narrated by Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, the film follows tireless conservation efforts of leading organizations implementing rewilding practices across a diverse array of species in equally diverse environments. Through compelling storytelling and breathtaking cinematography, the documentary showcases the tangible successes and ongoing challenges in the field of rewilding. It highlights how humanity, when armed with knowledge and compassion, can halt the decline of countless animal species and restore the environments we call home. Escape from Extinction Rewilding will be released in over 100 theaters nationwide on Thursday, September 27.

This documentary not only brings the importance of rewilding to the forefront but also emphasizes that you can’t protect what you don’t love, and you can’t love what you don’t know,” shared Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane and the film’s executive producer. “At American Humane, we are profoundly thankful to Meryl for lending her voice to this critical story of survival, inspiring countless others to become advocates for animal welfare.

The New Jersey Hall of Fame has announced its class of inductees for 2024—and the group includes some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Meryl Streep, who grew up in Bernardsville, Paul Rudd, who was born in Passaic, and Kevin Smith, a Red Bank native, are on this year’s list, which features 18 New Jerseyans who have achieved greatness in categories including performing arts & entertainment, sports, and education & science. “The 2024 class of inductees of the New Jersey Hall of Fame illustrate the New Jersey ethic of hard work, determination and grit,” Jon F. Hanson, Chairman of the New Jersey Hall of Fame, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to celebrate the contributions of 18 new Inductees so future generations can learn about their journeys.” Streep, one of our country’s most celebrated actors and a three-time Oscar winner, got her start in a fifth-grade play, then starred in musicals at Bernards High School. Things came full circle for the Jersey native in the late ’90s, when her movie One True Thing filmed for several months in nearby Morristown. You can watch the induction ceremony on November 13.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The Devil Wears Prada” writer Aline Brosh McKenna is penning a would-be follow-up to the hit film that is being developed and produced by Wendy Finerman, who was behind the original. No deals for the cast are in place. Disney, which would be the studio behind the film following the acquisitions of the original Devil studio Fox 2000, had no comment. The 2006 film based on the book of the same name follows Andy (Hathaway), a recent college journalism graduate as she lands one of the most coveted jobs in publishing as the assistant to Anna Wintour stand-in Miranda Priestly (Streep). Andy dives into the world of magazines and high fashion thanks to her fellow assistant (Blunt). The film grossed a massive $326 million at the worldwide box office and earned Streep an Oscar nomination. Puck first reported the news of the sequel and offered insights into a possible plot where Priestly is still the head of Runway but the magazine has endured the financial headwinds of contemporary publishing and is in a diminished state. Blunt’s one-time assistant would now be an executive at a luxury brand conglomerate that advertises with Runway. While promoting her recent film, The Idea of You, Hathaway told E! she was doubtful about the possibility of a sequel, saying, “I don’t think a continuation of that story is probably ever gonna happen.”

On Friday, Meryl Streep joined conductor Mikko Franck, the Chœur de Radio France, Maîtrise de Radio France and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, for the world-premiere of Rufus Wainwright’s “Dream Requiem”. Streep read Lord Byron’s poem “Darkness”, written in July 1816. Introducing the Dream Requiem, Rufus Wainwright wrote: “The music speaks of death, but I wanted it to be inspiring and full of hope at the same time. The work combines two soundworlds: The Latin Requiem text is sung by a large mixed choir, children’s choir and soprano soloist while the Byron text ‘Darkness’, which describes an environmental catastrophe, is spoken by a narrator. Dream Requiem was conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic and is also about the people we have lost during that crisis, for the loss of human connection that we all experienced. The full concert is curerntly available on-demand on the ARTE Concert webiste (at least for French and German viewers) and will be released on DVD later this year. Pictures from the rehearsals, the concert day and screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

For the world premiere of “Dream Requiem”, Canadian-American singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright has chosen to take over the Auditorium de Radio France for a one-off, not-to-be-missed show on Friday June 14, 2024 at 8pm. Described as “the amalgam of two musical and creative ideas, this “Dream Requiem” creation once again demonstrates Wainwright’s fascination with the Requiem form. Over the course of his career, Wainwright has written two operas, “Prima Donna” and “Hadrian”. For “Dream Requiem”, based on a text by Lord Byron and the Requiem Mass, and offered in Paris as a world premiere at the Maison de la Radio, Rufus Wainwright will be well surrounded. He will be accompanied by soprano Anna Prohaska, the Maîtrise de Radio France, the Chœur de Radio France and the Orchestre Philharmonie de Radio France, conducted by Mikko Franck. And that’s not all, as Radio France also announces the exceptional presence of Meryl Streep as recitalist. The actress will recite Lord Byron’s poem”Darkness”, written in July 1816. For those unable to attend, please note that this creation will be broadcast live on France Musique, on the France Musique website and on ARTE Concert. In addition, this exceptional concert “will be the subject of a recording to be released in autumn 2024 by Warner Classics/Erato”, says Radio France in a press release.

I am more than excited and grateful to announce that Meryl Streep will be performing in the world premiere of my Dream Requiem on June 14th at the Auditorium de Radio France alongside the great soprano Anna Prohaska and the orchestra and choir of Radio France under the baton of Mikko Franck. The concert will be broadcast live on France Musique and ARTE Concert. Like probably the rest of the world, I have admired Meryl Streep ever since I saw the first movie with her. I have had the pleasure of getting to know her personally over the last few years and apart from being the most incredible actress, she is also one of the most warm­ hearted human beings I know. To have her be part of the world creation of the Dream Requiem is an honour beyond anything I could have hoped for. Thank you, Meryl, for trusting me and giving your incomparable voice, heart and spirit to this piece. (Rufus Wainwright, June 03, 2024)
