On paper, would you ever consider giving Carey Mulligan top billing over Meryl Streep for a movie? Their star power and cinematic trajectories couldn’t be more different. But that’s what happens in the first trailer for Suffragette, which was released today. It’s a first look at what many are calling an awards season favourite. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was reported yesterday that Ben Affleck’s name appears before Henry Cavill’s name in the credit listing for Batman vs Superman. This is usually negotiated in the contract. And some people are like, OMG, why? Please. This makes sense to everyone except for Henry Cavill fans.

Ben Affleck probably gets top billing over all but, maybe, 6 or 7 other people in Hollywood. And as I mentioned last week, even though he’s Superman – like, he’s SUPERMAN – Henry Cavill’s not actually that big of a deal overall. I’ve been thinking about this lately. About how famous people really are. Was talking to a friend last week about her brother.  Read Full Intro

Imperator Furiosa and Mad Max are on their way. So promotion begins with Charlize Theron on the cover of ESQUIRE. I posted photos from the shoot in January. As you’ve heard, Charlize and Tom Hardy weren’t best friends during production. Full Story

Blake Lively: doing it all “elegantly”

Blake Lively covers the new issue of ALLURE in advance of the release of The Age Of Adaline. That means she’s probably not covering VOGUE with the baby, which is what I was expecting. I mean I thought for sure, non? So I was wrong. But motherhood is on the table. It’s Blake’s first acting promotion in a long time and her first after James’s arrival. Full Story

Stop acting like it was your idea. I’ve been riding this Gossip Genie wish since 2010. It’s been FIVE YEARS. Here are Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal having dinner together in LA on Sunday. Is it happening? Is it finally actually happening? Last year they made a movie together called Southpaw. Full Story

Sarah mentioned in the previous article about Chris Evans that he was supposedly, um, pretty peppy at the premiere last night. I just watched all of them playing Family Feud on Kimmel before they hit the carpet and, with the exception of RDJ, I think all of them were lit. Now normally I’d say over 8 minutes is way, way too long. Full Story

Enjoy while it lasts. Principal photography on Captain America: Civil War starts in a few weeks and Beardy Chris Evans will be no more. We’ve all agreed that he’s better with the beard, right? It’s not even a conversation anymore. The beard is superior. For dudes who insist on bringing facial hair to the red carpet, this is how you do it—groomed, no neckbeard. Full Story

Warned you about this in the last post from yesterday. My Obsession walked the Avengers: Age Of Ultron carpet together last night. Sam looks lovely in that dress. She has great legs. Is it because I’m used to it now? Because when I look at them, I don’t remember all that often that she’s that much older. Full Story

As I’ve mentioned 80 times already, the Avengers: Age Of Ultron premiere is tonight. And the two new superheroes, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, will be there for sure. Sarah tells me that Scarlet Witch is a BADASS. And I don’t doubt it. Joss Whedon has taken great care to make the women mean more. Full Story

Ant-Man packs a punch

I mentioned last week that I’ve heard some good stuff about Marvel’s other movie this year, Ant-Man. Despite its troubled beginning, word is that it’s funny and the action stuff is shaping up to be pretty slick. Well now we have a new trailer that shows off a little more of the Ant-Man suit’s abilities, particularly its strength capabilities. Full Story

It was a working weekend for George Clooney as he continues to shoot Jodie Foster’s Money Monster in New York. On Sunday they were all outside. So Amal stopped by to visit with the dogs. Dogs? George has talked often about Einstein, the black cocker spaniel, in interviews. As you can see, Einstein has a sibling now. Full Story

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron press junket was this weekend. Which is why Robert Downey Jr was so active on Twitter. He posted some great pictures and a couple of sassy videos, and you can see them all here, but this is the one Sarah’s trained me for. Full Story

I posted shots of Brad Pitt’s grey beard in New Orleans the other day – click here for a refresher. But he was wearing his own clothes that day and hat. This time, he’s properly in costume on the set of The Big Short. And…well… the hair doesn’t match the beard, for starters. Full Story

Earlier this week I got an email from reader Christine with the subject line “Please go see a movie you like”, and the message was, “I have to say I feel awful for you, you haven’t seen a movie (at least reviewed on LaineyGossip) you like in months and months.” That’s not entirely true—I liked Cinderella Full Story
