Oh look. It’s Megan Fox on the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 in New York and you’re thinking of Britney Spears. Me, I’m thinking of Michael Bay. And whether or not this is the Michael Bay Women’s Team uniform. After all, this is a Michael Bay production. Would Michael Bay ever allow a female actor in one of his movies to wear drop-crotch pants? A baggy tee? Or even an A-line dress? I’m actually surprised Michael Bay would even cast Megan Fox. Full Story

Eddie Redmayne has joined the Harry Potter family. It was confirmed yesterday that Eddie will play Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. The first film of the planned trilogy will be released November 2016 and is being written by JK Rowling herself. In case you didn’t know – and, um, why wouldn’t you, didn’t we ALL go to Hogwarts??? – these movies are prequels to the story we’ve practically memorised; Newt Scamander wrote the Fantastic Beasts textbook that Harry, Hermione, and Ron – but really only Hermione – studied at school. Full Story

So says Paul Feig, the director of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot. In an interview with AlloCine while promoting Spy, Feig said the only way he can see to remake Ghostbusters is to reimagine it with women. I love that he says this, that the only way it makes sense to him is as a female-driven project. Full Story

I read a great article over at Slate this weekend: How Entourage went from critical darling to cultural punching bag. Basically we’ve changed since Entourage first launched. We’ve asked for more in the way women are represented, not just in relationship to men, but in the way we ask for better from them. Full Story

After spending part of last week in LA to celebrate daughter Lily Rose’s 16th birthday, Johnny Depp has returned to Australia to resume work on Pirates 5. Apparently authorities held him and Amber Heard on his private jet for an hour to search the aircraft to go through their luggage, extra suspicious now because of the dogs incident. Full Story

By his investors, that is. Cavill was slated to star in the blatant Bond knock-off Stratton, in which he was to play an embattled MI5 agent who is the world's last hope against corruption or conspiracy or crab monsters or whatever. The movie was supposed to start principal photography this week, but only days before production, Cavill bailed on the project like it was Kaley Cuoco. Full Story

The Jurassic World press tour is fully engaged in advance of the movie's open this weekend, which means that Chris Pratt, the Internet's new boyfriend, is out and about, doing his duty as the face of this would-be franchise. So far, he's doing a better job than the Internet's other boyfriend named Chris, Chris Evans, just by keeping a lid on the pep while on the job. Full Story

Taraji P Henson was named Best Actress in a Drama Series last night at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards. As you know, Empire was arguably the most successful series premiere of the season. And the critics have been quick to honour new talent and creativity – they were the first (and few) to recognise Tatiana  Maslany’s work in Orphan Black. Full Story

A red band trailer for American Ultra, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, has been released. And it opens with the “n” word. I want to start there because if I don’t start there, it minimises the offence. And it becomes an afterthought. Which, it shouldn’t be an afterthought. Full Story

For years Marvel has dominated the market of white actors named Chris, building a veritable Chris army with the likes of Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt. But now Warner Brothers/DC is striking back, claiming a Chris of their own—Chris Pine, who is negotiating to co-star in Wonder Woman. Full Story
