I covered The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones Toronto premiere last week. A note on Jamie Campbell Bower -- I never understood it until I saw him move. Bower is tall, lanky, and he has a rock star swagger that's very attractive. For me though, it's all about Robert Sheehan, who's not even top 3 in the cast but is totally #1 on pure personality and charisma. Full Story

The final trailer for Man Of Steel was released yesterday. The movie opens June 14. And it’s going to be huge. Maybe not Avengers/Iron Man 3 huge but really, really big. I saw Man Of Steel last weekend in advance of the junket. Reviews are embargoed until Monday. But I can tell you about my interview with Henry Cavill. Full Story

This one is for Katherine who just emailed me about having Bradley Cooper hotness confusion. Here’s Coop at The Hangover 3 premiere last night in a rust (copper, brown, what?) coloured suit. Points for the variety. It’s refreshing to see a man in something other than black or blue or grey. Full Story

But why can’t it be Iron Pepper? After all, she wears the suit now, and don’t yell at me about spoilers because that scene is in the trailer. I saw Iron Man 3 in a screening room on the Disney lot on Saturday which ended up being cooler than I thought it would be. Can’t say much about it yet except that I now have a raging, raging, RAGING hurt for Robert Downey Jr in a Five List kind of way, only more. Full Story

A few members of the cast of Game Of Thrones, along with George R R Martin and showrunners, David Benioff and DB Weiss, were at the television academy yesterday in advance of the Season 3 premiere on March 31... Are you ready?!? Did I mention Arya is adorable in real life and Bran is SO pretty it’s unfair? There’s none of that Hollywood Machine Child to either of them. Full Story

Am writing from LAX, heading home to Vancouver after a few days in LA. This was my itinerary, and I promise, there's a point: Last week we were in Toronto, flew back to Vancouver on Friday, arriving at 7pm PT. Twelve hours later I was back at the airport for an 8am PT flight to Edmonton only to connect to Los Angeles, to get here in time for a screening. Full Story

Game Of Thrones is better than movie stars

Covered the Game Of Thrones Season 3 premiere red carpet last night at the Chinese Theatre. The last time I covered a movie carpet at the Chinese Theatre it was Gangster Squad in January. The carpet was easily 4 times longer. And with 4 times LESS people. Or more. You can imagine how long the cast list was last night for GoT, right? We’ve been conditioned at these events to expect that they’ll arrive just before the start of the screening and not stop and make you feel that they’re doing you a favour by showing up and talking. Full Story

A great week is only getting better, starting the second day in a row with Nicholas Hoult, currently in the #2 position on my Five List. Here he is in a well tailored suit at the premiere of Warm Bodies in Rome. My cousin Cat wrote to me yesterday, “I can’t believe About A Boy is so hot! I loved him in that movie!” I’m telling you, in person it’s even better. Full Story

Kristen Stewart’s labels

Here’s Kristen Stewart’s Vanity Fair spread by the ever-unimaginative Mario Testino. Are we ever going to be over him? Mario Testino is the Jay Leno of photographers. Chill Twi-Hards. I’m not saying she’s not beautiful. She is always beautiful, and if you could read properly I wouldn’t have to repeat this so many times. Full Story

Charlize Theron left LA yesterday to make the morning show rounds in New York today. Snow White And The Huntsman opens on Friday. My review will be posted later this week. I saw the movie a few weeks ago in England while on the junket. We were about 90 minutes outside of London, a small town called Arundel, where stands an old castle that they used as the backdrop for the interviews. Full Story

Maybe because I haven’t actually had a proper Summer Crush in a really long time. Maybe because it happened so unexpectedly. I mean, Lawless is not a romance, nor will it be sold as one. But the relationship between Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain is as romantic as you’ll see, more romantic than most intended love stories. Full Story

Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth were on Good Morning America today to promote The Avengers. Does it still need promoting at this point? The overseas box office for the film is already almost at $200 million. Can you stand the next 4 days? I’m telling you - if you go to the movies to have fun, The Avengers will deliver. Full Story

My interviews with The Avengers from the weekend junket will be airing on etalk all week. Proper reviews are still embargoed but apparently the geeks are more than satisfied with what Joss Whedon has accomplished. Like we’re talking mega nerd approval. Me I have no idea what the nerds want. What I wanted was more than just special effects and explosions. Full Story

I know you know what I mean. I know I don’t have to explain.Here are Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Alexander Ludwig (he plays Cato) on The Marilyn Denis show in Toronto this morning to promote The Hunger Games, obviously. Hutcherson and Hemsworth were paired - and seated - during the junket, and have been, for the most part, assigned on press together. Full Story
