Check out Daniel Craig in London on Sunday night shooting Bond Spectre. God he looks great in that ¾ coat. Actually, no, he looks great in both coats. Spectre is due in theatres November 6. That…doesn’t feel like it’s too far away. And I feel like it doesn’t leave a lot of time for post. Full Story

A crafty subversion of the Western genre, Slow West is in turns hypnotic, lyrical, and absurd. It’s a pitch-black dark comedy centered on a hopelessly romantic quest that’s more interested in episodic beats than it is a cohesive narrative, which means it won’t be for everyone. Slow West is not badly paced—not at all—but it does present a challenge to the viewer. Full Story

Macbeth was screened at Cannes to very strong reviews for everything – the performances, the cinematography, the pace of the story… And for a minute there it looked like it might contend for the Palme d’Or. Instead, it ended up being Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan. That doesn’t mean it won’t be a player at the Oscars though. Full Story

Chris Pratt is about to start heavy press for Jurassic World. So he posted a pre-apology on Facebook in the event that he f-cks up during an interview. It’s wonderful. He is wonderful. Let’s read it together first:   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d. Full Story

Sarah reviewed Tomorrowland in the previous post – click here for a refresher. And while the movie topped the box office for Memorial Day weekend, the actual number isn’t great. The number will need to grow overseas in order for it not to be considered a loss. Full Story

The Assassin was the film that Sarah was most excited about ahead of Cannes. This is how she described it in her preview:  Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-Hsien is arguably one of the greatest directors in the world and he has a new martial arts film, The Assassin, about a ninth century girl who is trained to be an assassin by a nun. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal was also at the amfAR gala last night and spent some time hanging out with Zoe Kravitz. I’m about to put Zoe Kravitz on my Five List. Am obsessed with her. She’s a charismatic performer. Even though she’s active on social media, she still manages to maintain a distance, a mystery, remaining unknowable. Full Story

Continuing the trend of turning their classic cartoons into live action spectacles, Disney announced that the next property to get the Real Boy treatment will be a kind of Peter Pan spin-off centered on Tinker Bell. The movie is called Tink and it will star AMERICAN CITIZEN Reese Witherspoon as the saucy fairy sidekick of Peter Pan. Full Story

Chris Pratt gives drunk acting lessons

As part of his cover feature in June’s GQ, Chris Pratt filmed a little comedy segment for the internet in which he gives acting lessons, except he got hammered and started the bit by saying he’s too drunk to do the bit. He then proceeds to do the bit while being obviously three sheets to the wind. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Buzzfeed posted a photo on Twitter yesterday that made me hug myself. The Khaleesi and Neville Longbottom!

 

 

It came from Matthew Lewis’s Instagram. They’re working together on Me Before You which, presumably, is the film adaptation of Jojo Moyes’s novel of the same name. I wrote about Me Before You in January 2013; after two more readings since then I still can’t decide how I feel about it. But as a movie, it has the potential to become what Nicholas Sparks books-to-movies used to be. You remember how you left the theatre ugly-sobbing after The Notebook? This is what will happen when Me Before You comes out.

By the way, Neville is not playing the male lead. He is, however, showing you his abs and his junk on the cover of Attitude Magazine. I don’t like my Neville when he’s trying to be Justin Bieber and/or Scott Eastwood.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Holy sh-t it's been one drama after another for Johnny Depp in Australia. And it's not like Australia is unwelcoming of celebrities. As Nicole pointed out in an email to me this morning, when Brange was there last year for Unbroken, they were beloved by the Aussie public. That said, they weren't constantly threatening to bail or compromising the country's quarantine. Full Story

More photos from the Atlanta set of Captain America: Civil War, including Scarlett Johansson sporting what I think is Black Widow’s best-ever wig, and Paul Rudd reporting to set. Rudd will make his debut as Ant-Man in a couple months, but he’s already moving up the ranks to full-blown Avenger for Civil War. Full Story

Tom Cruise is currently in Atlanta working on Mena. Here he is on set yesterday showing off a gap in his teeth, obviously for the character. He’s playing Barry Seal, a real life pilot in the 80s who became a drug smuggler. Seal was supposedly a really big dude. Like 300 lbs. So initially everyone was thinking Tom would gain some weight. Full Story
