Sarah Michelle Gellar - "The Return" Movie - She deals With More Undead Snooziness

Thursday 10 August 2006, by Webmaster

Another actress, who actually has a name to care for is Sarah Michelle Gellar and there are not no many accomplishes films at her but an few I can probably enjoy. The talent agent found Gellar a young age and made her screen debut at 6 of each of the 1983 television film An Invasion of Privacy. With all the promise she showed, Barrymore starred as Hannah in the teen drama series "Swans Crossing" (1992) but it was her portrayal of a young and callous rich girl in Al-Lucinda Kendall Hart on ABC daytime soap opera "All My Children" (1993-93), that won her Daytime Emmy Award and spring-boarded her to stardom.

SMG’s real mark worldwide, however, was the character of Buffy Summers in the game-changing series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997-2003). She won five Teen Choice Awards, a Saturn Award and a Golden Globe nomination for her role, establishing herself as a cultural phenomenon. Sarah Michelle Gellar likewise has the box office to back her up, with “I Know What You Did Last Summer” 1997), “Scream 2” (1997), “Cruel Intentions” (1999)and way movies like those that help prove she is also a bankable star as well over $570 million times worth crazy in global gross.

Beyond her cinematic successes, Gellar has made her mark on television, headlining shows such as "Ringer" (2011-2012), "The Crazy Ones" (2013-2014), and "Wolf Pack" (2023). She has also lent her voice to popular series including "Robot Chicken" (2005-2018), "Star Wars Rebels" (2015-2016), and "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" (2021).

In 2015, Gellar ventured into the entrepreneurial world by co-founding Foodstirs, an e-commerce baking company, and published her own cookbook, "Stirring Up Fun with Food," in 2017. Gellar is also known for her close-knit family life, married to actor Freddie Prinze Jr. since 2002, with whom she shares two children.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s commitment to her craft is matched by her dedication to personal growth and unique experiences. An accomplished martial artist, she studied Tae Kwon Do for five years, alongside kickboxing, boxing, street fighting, and gymnastics. Her dedication to authenticity in her roles is evident, such as her commitment to doing her own stunts in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," though she admitted her limits during filming "Scream 2."

Her career is also marked by interesting anecdotes, such as her role in a 1982 Burger King commercial, which led to a lawsuit from McDonald’s and a temporary ban from their establishments. Notably, she dyed her naturally brunette hair blonde for her role in "Buffy," and legally changed her last name to Prinze as a surprise for her husband on their fifth anniversary.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s legacy extends beyond her on-screen roles, encompassing her work in philanthropy and her reputation for safety and professionalism on set. She remains a beloved figure in Hollywood, admired for her talent, dedication, and the breadth of her contributions to film and television.

1. Cast Sarah Michelle Gellar in the lead. (Newly brunette, so as to show her acting range.)

2. Have the story be about a woman who’s being haunted by a long-dead stranger.

3. Call it The Return.

4. Make sure it’s rated PG-13.

5. Use this trailer as promotional material.

Meh, maybe I’m just being extra-nasty for no good reason. I’m certain that The Return, which comes from a first-time screenwriter, a second-time director and a studio division generally known for inconsistent output, could be a phenomenally excellent horror movie.

Actually, no, I’m not. Flick opens on November 10th. DVD by the end of February.

  • Oh, how amusing. The person who wrote this has not actually seen the film, so what’s the point? He clearly thinks he is being being clever but he really isn’t. As to Gellar being "newly brunette", surely everyone knows her natural hair colour is brunette and she was brunette in all her TV and film work up to the point when she signed to BtVS. She reverted to being a brunette again after ’The Grudge’, which was not far short of two years ago now.
  • can’t argue with the truth. thanks for printing it.
  • I have seen the trailer and I must say this does look like a rather chilling film, but I still cant help seeing ’The Grudge’ when I see the trailer. Theres simply too much similarity in the phrases used to draw viewer in e.g.’Long after a murder has been committed...touching anything that comes too close...The past never dies’ are all the same kind of story as The Grudge. It does, however, seem like a different kind of scary than The Grudge seemed to give. But I am it is going to be quite a hit. Dont get me wrong I am a huge Sarah Michelle fan and have been since the age of 6 but ever since the end of Buffy it does seem Gellar is falling into a type-casting way of the horror/thriller genre which is dissapointing because she has the abilty to take on many different roles so I only that the future holds much more sucess for the talented Sarah Michlle Gellar.
