We’re getting a slew of new trailers lately because everyone is debuting the stuff that will be attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron. That movie is tracking like a monster (I had a hilarious conversation last week with a box office money guy about the potential ceiling for Marvel and whether or not Monopoly money will become legal tender when Disney has the rest of the world’s currency in their Scrooge McDuck vault), so everyone wants to get their trailers attached, putting their projects in front of what will probably be the biggest cinema audience in history—at least until New New Star Wars opens in December. Full Story

My Obsession is travelling. The Avengers: Age Of Ultron UK premiere is tomorrow at Westfield. I’m in London right now. This is not on the agenda for Tuesday night though. Am planning on touring Windsor Castle instead, then staying home with Lorella because she hasn’t seen the first movie and we can’t see the second movie until she does her homework. Full Story

Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot is flying under the radar, as far as superhero movies go. This one has the least amount of hype and pre-release attention focused on it, and I can’t help but think that’s a good thing: With expectations low, even a mediocre result will feel like a win. Full Story

Blake Lively at The Age Of Adaline New York premiere last night. She posed on the carpet with the Khaleesi’s boyfriend, Michiel Huisman in a red Monique Lhuillier with a leather wraparound and a feathered skirt. ENOUGH WITH THE FEATHERED SKIRTS. Ryan Reynolds was back in Vancouver working on Deadpool. Full Story

Reports out of Australia where Johnny Depp is supposed to be working on Pirates 5 – he’s “missing”. As you know, Depp left the set last month when he injured his hand to return to the US for surgery. Apparently he was scheduled to be back in Australia last Monday. But the Gold Coast Bulletin Full Story

Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe will be in Cannes. Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees will be screened in competition at the festival. Gus Van Sant + McConaughey? I’m definitely intrigued. The Croisette is going to lose its mind with the return of McConaughey, now an Oscar winner, to the Palais. Full Story

James Franco and Amber Heard at the The Adderall Diaries premiere last night in New York. I hate myself for writing what I’m about to write: This is the most attracted I’ve been to The Artist James Franco in a long time. He looks good, non? I like the hair. I don’t hate the beard. Full Story

I had it bad for Josh Hartnett for a while. It was after seeing 40 Days And 40 Nights. Why didn’t Shannyn Sossamon become a bigger deal? She has a PERFECT face. God I wanted to look like her. I think I still want to look like her. I certainly wanted to be her. Back to back makeout work opportunities with Heath Ledger and Josh Hartnett? Come on. Full Story

Warner Brothers has planned an elaborate IMAX stunt to see the first trailer for Superhero Face Punch on Monday night, but the internet, that jackhole, ruined it by spraying Bat-jizz everywhere last night and leaking the trailer early. (The internet also blew Marvel’s big Avengers: Age of Ultron Full Story

Two days in a row of Tom Hardy. He’s at the Child 44 premiere with Noomi Rapace. I said I wanted to see him in a well-tailored suit. He’s in a well-tailored suit. Is that working for you? If I say some hair and less beard would help will he show up tomorrow with more hair and less beard? They put together a legacy trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road connecting the old with the new. Full Story

As previously mentioned in the Emma Stone post, the Cannes Film Festival released their list this morning; Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, will be screened in competition. Two of the finest actors of a generation playing the Frank and Claire Underwood of their time. You want ambition? The Macbeths knew ambition. Full Story

Today is the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Anaheim, California—basically a Comic-Con Hall H presentation without Hall H—and JJ Abrams and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (or however that title officially goes) debuted a second teaser trailer. The movie doesn’t come out till Christmas, so we have plenty of time for full-blown plot-revealing trailers, but there’s a lot of new footage and information to digest. Full Story

The Cannes Film Festival announced its lineup today. Among the films screening out of competition, Woody Allen’s An Irrational Man starring Emma Stone, apparently his new muse, and Joaquin Phoenix. So Emma’s going to Cannes. For the first time, I think. Emma’s dress porn is always first class. Full Story
