Hello Alicia fans! It’s the last day of 2017, and we’re getting ready to ring in the new year. But first, we’ll continue our new tradition from last year by looking at Alicia’s year in review. While 2017 was a very quiet year for Alicia compared to 2015 and 2016, it has still brought us many new events, photoshoots, career news and interviews. Alicia has had three new films premiere this year, with Submergence and Euphoria hitting various film festivals, while Tulip Fever finally got its long awaited release. The Light Between Oceans was out on DVD in January, and the year was ended with Alicia voicing “Little My” in a Christmas special Moomins film in December. Read on for a full summary of our girl’s year!
The year started off badly, with the news that Tulip Fever had been pushed back to later in 2017. The period drama starring Alicia and Christoph Waltz had previously moved from July 15, 2016 to February 24, 2017, and it was announced in February that it once again had been pushed back. The film, which was originally filmed in 2014, eventually got it’s release in the United States on September 1 this year, grossing only $7 million worldwide against its $25 million budget. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 8% based on 48 reviews, with an average rating of 4.2/10. Considering all the push backs
we realized the film was probably not as good as we had hoped; it was not a major surprise that the film did so badly. Still, Alicia’s performance was stellar as always.
Alicia attended her first event of the year on February 25, a Bvlgari Pre-Oscar Dinner at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles ahead of the 2017 Academy Awards. She also attended a rehearsal for the Academy Awards before the dinner. As the 2016 Oscar winner of “Best Supporting Actress”, Alicia was set to present the award to the 2017 winner in the actor category.
