Turn away if your eyeballs are a pristine, spoiler-free environment. We’re discussing potential Star Wars Episode VII plot details, so if you don’t want to know, go no further. It’s nothing particularly revelatory—it’s not like, “and then everyone at the wedding died” territory—but I know some people are special snowflakes who don’t like to know anything about a movie before they see it. Full Story

During the Maleficent press tour, when asked about her new collaboration with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie told Extra that: "It's not a big movie, it's not an action movie. It's the kind of movie we love, but aren't often cast in. Full Story

New York premiere of Magic In The Moonlight. Emma Stone showed up with her boyfriend Andrew Garfield. Of course her co-star Colin Firth was there too. Not a bad night, right? Many people thought Emma and Andrew would split as soon as they were done promoting Spider-Man, especially since…SPOILER ALERT… Her role in the franchise is done. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon modelled a very cute white laser cut two-piece yesterday while walking around LA. Speaking of Blake Lively, Reese too will soon be launching a lifestyle brand called Draper James. There will be retail stores. The first is expected to open next year…while she’s on an Oscar run? I posted about the first trailer for Wild – Hike, Pray, Love – last week. Full Story

Brad Pitt was seen at Marseilles airport yesterday on his own, without the Jolie or the kids. Possible reasons for travel: Stopping in to check on Chateau Miraval. Or, there’s some kind of art show happening and he’s heading there to look at some installations. Wearing his favourite t-shirt illustrated by one of his children. Full Story

I didn’t think it could look any more twee than Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. But he’s been cast in a movie called Woman In Gold with Katie Holmes and apparently they’re a couple with kids and, sh-t, it’s like a life insurance commercial. Well done, casting director. Full Story

With Warner Brothers electing to save Batman vs. Superman for next summer’s Comic-Con, this summer’s convention belongs squarely to the other superhero orgy in our lives, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. To that end, Entertainment Weekly is featuring a first look at Ultron on the cover of its Comic-Con preview issue, and it is very, very cool. Full Story

In case you haven’t heard, summer 2014 is some weak-ass sh*t at the box office. We’re two-thirds of the way through the summer movie season and domestic tickets sales are down over 19%—that’s a staggering drop in revenue, especially since we were actually up nearly 10% over last year going into May. Full Story

Woody Allen is fascinated by magic. And now, apparently, Emma Stone. Because he’s cast her in his next movie. But first… Magic In The Moonlight opens next week. Colin Firth plays a middle-aged man who meets a beautiful, young “seer” (is there any other kind in Woody’s mind?) and tries to prove that she’s full of sh-t but, naturally, ends up falling in love with her. Full Story

Nicole Kidman acquired the rights to Kevin Wilson’s The Family Fang almost 3 years ago. Click here for my coverage of the story and my thoughts on the book. Briefly, The Family Fang is about Caleb and Camille Fang, renowned performance artists, who use their children in controversial public stunts (one of them involved the father prostituting his kids in a mall), secretly videotaping the public’s reaction, and then screening the footage at museums and galleries like it’s creative genius. Full Story

Daniel Radcliffe’s devil face

Yesterday Lainey wrote about Daniel Radcliffe and how he’s pretty much doing whatever he wants, post-Harry Potter. At 24 and he’s already made his money and earned the kind of fame that never really goes away (see also: Orlando Bloom, Mark Hamill), so there’s no pressure to earn or increase his profile or anything like that. Full Story

This blue sparkly dress with gold trim… I don’t know if I’d be into it if someone else was wearing it. But on her? It’s pretty spectacular. In fact, a lot of her clothes are great in Ischia. This sheer black dress, again, she manages to elevate. On anyone else, I’m not sure I’d care very much. Full Story

Tom Hardy continues to shoot Legend in London. There was a kissing scene with Emily Browning in the car. But during break… There were a lot of kisses with the dog. His own dog. That looks like Woodstock. He adopted Woodstock with Jessica Chastain – because the two of them are super method like that – when they were working on Lawless. Full Story
