Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon are bad spies

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 22, 2018 19:25:13 March 22, 2018 19:25:13

 Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon went on Ellen to premiere the first trailer for their upcoming comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, and holy crap does this movie look good. Comedy trailers are tricky—the trailer could be all the funny bits and then the movie itself disappoints—but this trailer is good enough that I hope these aren’t all the funny bits. Full Story

What is going on with Deadpool 2

A new trailer for Deadpool 2—the official title, though I kinda wish they had stuck with “Untitled Deadpool Sequel”—has been released, and goddamn does the marketing for this movie remain on point. This trailer is GREAT, except for the increased screen time for TJ Miller, and actually gives a sense of the plot. Full Story

The “untalented” Jake Gyllenhaal

Drew Barrymore was on James Corden last night and they played Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts. The premise, if you’ve never seen it, is that there is a selection of really “gross” foods that you have to eat if you don’t want to answer a really difficult question. I can’t decide whether or not to be offended by the kinds of “gross” foods that are on offer here because, almost always, a majority of the food items are part of Chinese cuisine. Full Story

Tiffany Haddish, as Duana noted after the Oscars, is a Star. She has It. When Tiffany Haddish is around, all you want to be looking at or listening to is Tiffany Haddish. And she is beginning to have projects built around her, as Stars do, including one called The Kitchen. Full Story

Chadwick Boseman and Gwyneth Paltrow were also at the THR Power Stylists event last night. I wrote about THR’s 2018 list earlier today and G’s stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman, who also works with Saoirse Ronan, is ranked 2nd Full Story

Can’t catch Jeremy Renner

One of the more high-concept (mainstream) comedies in the works is Tag, based on the idiotic but true story of a bunch of guys who played a game of tag for thirty years. Any story that wacky is destined to be optioned, and indeed, the rights were snapped up and now we have the first trailer for Tag, the movie about a bunch of guys playing tag. Full Story

Scarlett & Adam

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver were photographed in New York on Friday working on Noah Baumbach’s new film. A Noah Baumbach film is a good reset for Scarlett. I’d like to see her in a smaller, quieter film. But my first thought when I saw these pictures was that if I were Scarlett Johansson, who’s been josting Full Story

Eva Mendes was in NYC yesterday promoting her New York & Company collection. She talked to E! News about her daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, and the most usable quote from the interview is about dressing them:  "Thank God there's no fashion talk. Full Story

Renee Returns

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 20, 2018 14:39:24 March 20, 2018 14:39:24

A first-look photo was released yesterday of Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland, for a biopic called Judy. It’s about Garland doing a series of shows in London in 1968, the year before she died. Zellweger doesn’t look exactly like Garland, but she looks enough like her to be startling. And that little bit of difference is actually comforting, because I take it to mean she isn’t trying to do an impression, but give an actual performance. Full Story

Angelina and kids see Love, Simon

Kathleen Posted by Kathleen at March 20, 2018 13:52:35 March 20, 2018 13:52:35

Angelina Jolie took her kids to the movies over the weekend. Originally, it was reported that Angie, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne went to see Tomb Raider. That would have been a nice story – “Angelina Passes the Torch to Alicia Vikander”! Or “Angelina Approves!” It’s the easy story. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

A few quick thoughts this morning:  I saw Love, Simon yesterday. (Sarah’s review will be posted shortly.) As soon as I got home I texted Sarah: “I LOVED Love, Simon”. She texted back, in all-caps: “ME TOO”.  Read Full Intro
