Dear Gossips,

The Cannes Film Festival announced its lineup today featuring some strong Canadian representation from David Cronenberg, Atom Egoyan, and the darling Xavier Dolan. Jesus. He’s only 25 years old. And it seems like every year Dolan has a film for the festival. So incredibly productive. Dolan’s latest, Mommy, is screening in competition this time, his first time. I miss his glasses. I wonder if he’ll ever bring them back.

More on Cannes later this morning. But after over a year of absence, Ryan Gosling will be there. And it’s always a good show when he shows up on the Croisette, even though he skipped last year when Only God Forgives was part of the festival.

FYI on blog scheduling: it’s a holiday in Canada tomorrow and I will not be blogging. I’m sorry about the inconvenience. We’re back on Monday!

Have a great long weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Earlier this week, ScreenRant posted an article about the proposed Top Gun sequel and a possible plot: Drones. He’s the grizzled veteran in a world where pilots are dinosaurs. But wait! Can computers really fly planes and out-maneuver the bogeys? Of course not. Full Story

Sure, she’s dead, I buy that.

Vampire Diaries Catchup Part 3: Episodes 14-17 Well this was a convoluted catchup, wasn’t it? I mean, I’m talking purely logistically.  Olympics and breaks and everything else, it was a long time coming.   So maybe it’s for that reason that this run of episodes seems like it has really run out of steam. Full Story

It’s another conscious uncoupling. Page Six reports that Gwyneth Paltrow and Seb Bishop, GOOP CEO, have broken up. G will be moving GOOP operations to Los Angeles because she’s getting the f-ck out of London now that she and Chris Martin are done. Full Story

No Brange Cannes…but a Twi-Hard substitute

Though it was widely speculated that Maleficent would show up in Cannes, she was not on the official list that was released today. Is that a definite “NO”? Or are they just waiting for their own moment before dropping the Brange bomb on everyone else’s ass? In the absence of Brange, we get instead a showdown between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Full Story

Ryan Gosling directed his first film. It used to be called How To Catch A Monster. Now it’s called Lost River. It’s entered in Un Certain Regard. This is why he skipped the Cannes Film Festival last year (Only God Forgives). Doubtful that he’ll skip this year. Gosling has been working on it for months, keeping a very, very low profile. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m reading a book right now called Remember The Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days by Bill Whitfield, Javon Beard, and Tanner Colby. Whitfield and Beard were MJ’s bodyguards at the end. They were with him always. And the children too. And they saw everything.

This is not about the controversy. It’s not the salacious details about MJ’s life that make the story compelling. What’s compelling is the culture. The culture of protecting and indulging. The powerless observation. How contradictory, right? They are hired to look after him. To use brawn and aggression to take care of him against threats from the outside, when the greatest threat was happening inside. Celebrities are so afraid of what’s going on around them. They seem to never understand that what hurts them most is what’s killing them from within.  Read Full Intro

I have, somewhat reluctantly, conceded to liking Channing Tatum. I didn’t want to, because I remain unconvinced that he isn’t some kind of real-life Encino Man, but he’s just so nice and uncomplicated and he’s been so smart with his career over the years that I have to give it to him. Full Story

A final trailer for X-Men: Days Of Future Past has just been released. The movie opens May 23. I love this preview. Let me get to it: So Wolverine is tasked with bringing the mutants together. The dude who has to break Magneto Michael Fassbender out of his prison? HOT. Nicholas Hoult’s Beast as the comic relief? Adorable. Full Story

Have you exercised your nostalgia muscles this early on a Wednesday? No? Get ready. This is an interview about the series finale of Dawson’s Creek in a series of creators talking about finales. It's very enjoyable.  Kevin Williamson has always been honest about how writing is fun and also hard for him, how he has to get deeply involved in series and then leave them. Full Story
