As mentioned yesterday, Mary is starring with Topher Grace and Matthew Gray Gubler in a new “social film” called The Beauty Inside. The film, directed by Sundance-winner Drake Doremus (Like Crazy), is based on the story of Alex, a young man who wakes up every day with a different appearance. Intel and Toshiba are having an open casting call for actors and actresses for the film via the film’s Facebook Page. The first episode of the film is scheduled to premiere on Aug. 16 at 3 p.m. PST. The final episode will air on Sept. 20.

Be sure to check out the gallery for all the screencaps from the trailer as well as some production stills.

An online casting call has gone out via Facebook today, offering anyone from anywhere in the world the chance to co-star alongside actors Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead in The Beauty Inside. The film, part of a co-marketing campaign for Toshiba and Intel, marks the second time the two brands and their agency, Pereira & O’Dell, have launched a global social film project–last year, it was the thriller The Inside Experience, directed by D.J. Caruso.

This time around, Drake Doremus, best known for Like Crazy, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Drama at the Sundance Film Festival last year, takes the reins of a romantic comedy that centers on a guy named Alex (Grace) who wakes up every day with a new face and body, complicating his romance with Leah (Winstead). “The story was exciting to me–the idea of waking up in somebody else’s skin every day but being the same person on the inside,” Doremus says. “That was some territory I was interested in exploring.”

The Beauty Inside, which will roll out in installments on Facebook over the course of six weeks beginning on August 16, with the winners of the casting call appearing as Alex as he records his web diary.

Those who try out will be required to record themselves reading an audition script via an app provided on Facebook, and they will be able to ask their Facebook friends to “like” their video, which will increase the likelihood of it being chosen. (That said, Doremus will have the final say over who goes in the film.)

Ever since 2010, Mary was among several actresses rumored to star with Casey Affleck in the indie film The F-Word. Nothing happened with the film for a couple of years, though Mary had said during interviews once that she was still interested in the project. Fast forward to today where it’s been announced by THR that Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan will instead take on the lead roles.

In the film, The F Word takes a comedic look into the lives of two twentysomethings who meet at a party and hit it off but she has a long term boyfriend, so he hides his attraction for her, and the pair try their hand at a friendship instead. Filming is expected to begin later this summer. Casting is still underway, so if anything changes and Mary happens to join the project, I’ll keep you all updated. ;)

In a new interview with Time, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul revealed that his & Mary’s upcoming movie Smashed will head to the Toronto International Film Festival:

What’s next for you after Breaking Bad? What other projects are you working on?

I have a film [Smashed] coming out that debuted at Sundance. It’s going to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and then it’ll be released in theaters in mid-November. It’s a story of a young couple in love, and they’re also in love with drinking, and they’ve never known what it’s like to be sober together. Mary Elizabeth Winstead [plays the wife] and she starts to notice that her life is spiraling out of control, and she decides to try sobriety. And it kind of throws a wrench into the marriage, because they’ve never known what it’s like to be sober, and it loses its spark in a way. They try to figure out how to continue their lives without alcohol — with one trying to be sober and one continuing down his path of chaos.

The fall can’t get here enough. Super excited to see this film when it hits theaters!

FYI: The 37th annual Toronto International Film Festival, (TIFF) is scheduled to be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada between September 6 and September 16, 2012.

Dread Central has announced (via bluray.com) that the DVD for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will hit stores on September 18:

It’s only been 3 weeks since Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter began axe-chopping Confederate bloodsuckers at the box office, but we have to wait just 2 months before our 16th President emancipates our Union from the undead on DVD/Blu-ray.

Blu-ray.com just announced that 20th Century Fox will be rushing the Tim Burton-produced, Timur Bekmambetov-directed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to DVD and Blu-ray as early as September 18th. No specific details, artwork, word of a 3D Blu-ray, or anything else regarding the release has been revealed yet other than the Blu-ray will also include both a digital and basic DVD copy.

In a new interview with AsiaOne, Mary discussed missing out on action scenes in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and about screen-testing as SHIELD agent Maria Hill for The Avengers. I’ve posted part of the interview, the rest can be read by clicking the link above:

Winstead, who is best known for her performances in Quentin Tarantino’s cult hit, Death Proof (2007), graphic novel-adaptation Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010) and last year’s sci-fi flick The Thing, is far from pleased about the “relative ease” she enjoyed in her role as Abraham Lincoln’s wife, Mary Todd Lincoln.

“I’m actually very jealous,” said the North Carolina native with a laugh, during a round table interview with reporters at The Ritz-Carlton Central Park.

“When I first signed on to do this movie, I was happy to take a break from action, as I had just finished Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, for which I did three months of martial arts training.

“Then, one day, I saw people doing stunts on set and I was like, ‘Oh man, I wish I could be one of them!’

“I remember I had a particular scene with Erin (Wasson) where she did a flip backwards…Right then, I was trying to stand up in my seat, because I wanted to do that too.”

On missing out playing the role of Agent Maria Hill in The Avengers, which went to Cobie Smulders:

“It was a matter of timing,” she explained.”At that time (during casting of The Avengers), I was more excited to find something small, which I felt would be the right type of project for me. So I did (indie flick) Smashed and it went to the Sundance Film Festival and got really good reviews.”

Mary also talked a little bit about her marriage towards the end, and about her new moves we’ll be seeing in an upcoming movie:

“I’m in this new movie where I have a small kick-boxing scene,” she said.

“After I made my moves, everyone was visibly surprised…Some asked me, ‘how did you know how to do that?'”

Over the weekend, I added some new photos. First, I added a new photoshoot pic from Mary’s Esquire shoot, the Complex magazine scans (credit to boloround), new pics from the ALVH NY premiere and Melanie capped a new interview of Mary from the premiere. All of this of course, can be seen in the gallery. Also enjoy a new video of Mary signing autographs before leaving to the ALVH premiere.

Be sure to also check out the first pic of Mary in the new short film, The Cub. She doesn’t star in it, but instead serves as an executive producer with her husband, Riley Stearns who wrote, directed and also exec-produced the film.

A couple of new interview videos with Mary have been posted online, which you can now view below. The first two are just quick soundbites of her being asked one question, while the other was an interview question asked during the ALVH press junket:

Also, in it’s second weekend at the movies, ALVH came in 6th place this weekend making an additional $6 million for a total gross of $29 million.
