How much promotion did Johnny Depp put in for Into The Woods? Almost none, right? Pretty sure he wasn’t at any of the premieres, screenings, Q&As. He’s big enough to cut that out of his job description when he wants to now. I’m not sure though that he’ll be able to get away with it for Mortdecai though. Full Story

With all the fuss surrounding The Interview, the question being asked after it was finally released via limited theatrical engagement and online platforms over the Christmas holiday is whether or not the movie is even worth all this trouble and strife. Full Story

About 11 months ago I wrote about the impending Entourage movie and at the time, this was my plot prediction: "Vince is happily married to the reporter he met at the end of the final season – they have 4 kids. Eric is now a big player in Hollywood, Johnny Drama is down on his luck after his TV show got cancelled and he lost all his money to a shady financial advisor; he now lives in Vince’s pool house. Full Story

Last week, following a threat from the hackers that have ruined Sony’s year, the studio decided to pull The Interview off their release slate entirely. They cancelled its release and had no plans to show it, ever, despite a huge amount of criticism that peaked with President Obama Full Story

Just watched the first trailer for Helen Mirren’s new film Woman In Gold based on the true story of Holocaust survivor Maria Altmann fight to reclaim the family art that was stolen by the Nazis, including Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, the woman in gold. Ryan Reynolds plays her lawyer. Full Story

Will Smith is Focus…but Hitch

The first trailer for Will Smith’s upcoming Focus was released yesterday. He’s a con man. Margot Robbie is his protégé. While watching the first 30 seconds, I was like, oh, this feels familiar. Then I realised, it felt familiar because he’s basically the guy he played in Hitch; Focus just gets darker because criminals find themselves in more dangerous situations than love coaches. Full Story

Casting for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic was messy even before Sony vomited bitchiness all over it. Now that it’s been re-homed at Universal, things are hopefully less dramatic around the production office, but the casting merry-go-round continues to turn. The female lead has yet to be cast since the Sony Hack exposed that Natalie Portman was less “in talks” and more “lobbying for” the part. Full Story

The Sony Hack took a turn for the dangerous earlier this week when the hackers released a statement threatening violence should people go see the movie when it was to open on Christmas day. Following the threat, Sony said it would allow theater owners to back out of booking deals and not show the movie, if they should so choose. Full Story

Angelina Jolie, the “rule breaker” covers the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter, the issue that members of the Academy will have during the holiday break. It’s a very strategic, very fortuitously timed release. Because it’s been kinda sh-t for the Jolie the last week or so. Full Story

It was only a half Brange at the Unbroken premiere last night but there were other Unbroken couple on the carpet. First… Miyavi, with the most gorgeous bone structure to rival Alexander Wang, his wife Melody, and their daughters Lovelie and Jewelie. These children. And their hair! I have some hair. Full Story

Tone is everything. So maybe I’m not reading this right. Maybe the tone I’m getting out of Jon Hamm in this new interview with Radio Times is all wrong. Maybe you can help me hear it differently. Because I’m hearing it like he’s all kinds of a crabby. And I don’t know if I like my Jon Hamm crabby. Full Story

As expected, Brad Pitt represented Brange on his own last night at the Hollywood premiere of Unbroken because of the Jolie’s chicken pox. His parents were there. And also three of their six children – Maddox, Pax, and the Chosen One Shiloh. It’s Brad’s birthday on Thursday. Full Story
