It’s the 75th anniversary of Batman comics, and as part of their celebration at Comic-Con, DC Comics has a display of Batman suits throughout the ages—including Ben Affleck’s new costume from Superhero Face Punch. Well, part of it. Full Story

It was announced this week that Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, will be a world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The first trailer and the poster were released yesterday. This is the movie for which Jakey lost 20 lbs. So…definitely not Prince Of Persia. And I say that on purpose. Full Story

Yesterday Disney announced that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is being kicked from summer 2016 to July 7, 2017. Apparently they’re doing this because they want to get the script “just right”—hahahaha, like the script in these movies matter. This is the second delay for the latest installment in the Johnny Depp: Private Islands Are Expensive franchise. Full Story

Bradley Cooper is shooting a movie in New Orleans. Suki Waterhouse is there with him. She went shopping yesterday and also visited him on set where they were photographed having a conversation. That’s the most neutral way to describe it. And, probably, the most accurate. But let’s play our favourite game anyway: Photo Assumption, drawing unreliable conclusions based simply on how people look in pictures. Full Story

There’s no doubt: Fifty Shades Of Grey, the movie, will be better than the book. How much better? Well, it depends on how far away Sam Taylor-Johnson was able to get from the author, EL James. James reportedly wanted total creative control…so if she put in all that sh-t about the inner goddess, it’s going to seriously kill my erection. Full Story

Colin Farrell is Irish in Miss Julie

It has recently come to my attention that there are some people for whom “Irish”, the mention of, or indeed the claiming as heritage of, is unappealing. Something about being too rah-rah or that we’re the greatest or something. Oops. Did I slip? Yep. I’m one of the few and the proud. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was at the NY premiere of A Most Wanted Man last night. So that’s why she’s on the cover of ALLURE. I wasn’t sure. There was so little lead-up to this release. Anyway, at some point while she was at the event, she posed with Mick Jagger. Full Story

Dear White People – the trailer

One of the movies that caught my eye at this year’s Sundance was Dear White People, a satire of race politics centered around an African-American themed party thrown by white kids on a college campus and the hell that breaks loose afterward. It was a hit at Sundance, winning a Special Jury Prize and netting writer/director Justin Simien a Breakthrough Talent award. Full Story

Duana texted me last night around dinner time quoting a tweet from someone at the TCAs about Charlie Hunnam walking onstage with his backpack. Right. My response: It’s his signature! We saw it exactly one year ago today here and again here Full Story

Dork Storm 2014: When Comic Con Attacks

Sarah Posted by Sarah

It’s that time of year again, when the movie studios and TV networks venture into the Dork Forest to shill their wares in the hopes of generating audience interest in movies we won’t be seeing for another year. There’s been a curious development at Comic-Con over the last couple years, though: Movie studios have started drawing down their presence in Hall H. Full Story

There’s been some buzz that Zoe Saldana is pregnant. If she is, she wore a dress to try and distract from it last night at the Guardians Of The Galaxy premiere. So, while you baby-obsessed are busy trying to figure out whether or not it’s a bump, I’ll be over here talking about her hair… As bobs go, this is not the best I’ve seen. Full Story

TIFF announced its first slate of films for this year’s festival September 4-14. It’s a big ass deal, not only because I live in Toronto and I work for etalk and we cover it top to bottom but because TIFF is where people come to kick off their campaigns. Full Story

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were on hand at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy last night to christen Pratt’s new career as a movie star. I’m not loving his suit. It’s boring, and the tie looks sloppy (needs pressing?), and his douche hair is too much. Chris Pratt is so cute! What is this look? Why is he fighting his hotness? Chris Evans is always fighting his hotness—I need one of the Chrises to just own his sh*t and show up looking great. Full Story
