I used to hate Vin Diesel. There were rumours about how he behaved on set, how he treated people. Then, he kinda went gossip quiet. And after that he started showing me his dance and lip-synch on line to Rihanna and Beyonce and Katy Perry. Even Sarah didn’t hate it when he proudly played a tree in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Full Story

Tom Ford made his directorial debut in 2009 with A Single Man, for which Colin Firth earned an Oscar nomination, and now, six years later, he’s lined up his sophomore project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ford has signed on to direct Nocturnal Animals, based on Austin Wright’s book Tony and Susan. Full Story

Fifty Shades Of Grey will be released on DVD on May 8. They want your money so they’re promising that this version will be “unrated”, with an alternate ending and new scenes. Like… Come scenes? One of my biggest problems (aside from Jamie Dornan’s overall discomfort) with the movie is that NOBODY COMES. Full Story

Michael Fassbender’s passion project, the Western Slow West, is currently making the festival rounds and is expected in theaters later this year. It’s the feature film debut of Scottish writer/director John Maclean and it’s produced by Fassbender’s shingle, DMC, and it looks very, very cool. Full Story

Here’s Liam Neeson promoting Run All Night in Madrid today. Run All Night is the third team-up of director Jaume Collet-Sera and Liam Neeson, following Unknown and Non-Stop, and it is the least satisfying of the Not Taken, But Like Taken trilogy. And like the actual Taken trilogy, the Not Taken, But Like Taken trilogy gets worse Full Story

I misjudged The Gunman based on its trailer. I thought it was going to be a preachy political thriller, but it’s actually a Taken knock-off with Sean Penn starring as Liam Neeson Revenge Man. Oh, there’s some moralizing—undoubtedly Penn used his power as producer and co-writer to tack on the geopolitical sermonizing—but The Gunman is more an attempt to reimagine Penn’s career as a 50+ action star a la Tom Cruise and Neeson than it is serious reflection on the current state of global affairs. Full Story

I love the Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation trailer that Sarah posted yesterday – click here for a refresher. As she wrote, it’s pure ridiculous action movie fun. It knows exactly what it is. It doesn’t aim to be anything more. And Tom Cruise’s level of frustration when he delivers the final line – “the other door!” – is perfect. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez and her kids, Emme and Max, were at the Home premiere in LA yesterday. That’s why she only took it to a level 5 on the hard-posing with the open mouth. You know who else was there? Her best friend, Leah Remini. And… Casper Smart, the Slum Bear. For months JLO’s been fronting like that’s not a thing anymore. Full Story

This may be the most challenging review I’ve ever written. For one thing, YA dystopia stories are not my bag. For another, I have neither read nor seen Divergent, so I’m walking into this franchise blind, as it were. And finally, Insurgent isn’t a real movie, so I’m not sure how to go about reviewing it. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds confirms it’s James

We’ve known that it’s James for a while now. But we’ve never heard it from Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds…until now. Reynolds is doing press for The Woman In Gold, opening April 1. Jesus, it is April already??? Anyway, during an interview with The Today Show, Ryan confirmed that his daughter’s name is indeed JAMES. Full Story

Cara is Margo

Model becomes an actress. You’re like, whatever, because you still remember seeing Cindy Crawford in Fair Game. Nine times out of ten I would agree with you. But my best memory from TIFF 2014 was that I found out that Cara Delevingne can act. It was a film called The Face Of An Angel. Totally forgettable. Full Story

The Avengers must be playing baseball

That’s my takeaway from the new extended TV spot for Avengers: Age of Ultron—they must be playing baseball. This spot features a lot of new footage, including Thor swinging for the fences using his hammer as the bat and Captain America’s shield as the ball. Easily the two coolest moments are when Thor grand-slams Cap’s shield and when Cap chucks his motorcycle into an oncoming truckload of bad guys. Full Story

Sarah and I went for a switch today. She wrote about my #1 Oscar Isaac. And I'm writing about Chris Evans. She goes on and off on him. But the hope is always there. Which is why she was so pissed when she saw these shots of him leaving Fatburger in sweats. Something about how the top muscles don't match the lean legs. Full Story
