Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor were papped while shooting an emotional scene from The Secret In Their Eyes yesterday in LA. At some point, her husband, Danny Moder, who is also working on the film, came over to give her some instruction, likely technical. Because she doesn’t need any tips on how to cry on camera. Full Story

There’s a scene in Kingsman: The Secret Service (why the subtitle? It’s dumb) in which Colin Firth, as dapper gentleman spy Harry and Samuel L. Jackson as megalomaniac Valentine, talk about their love of old spy movies, bemoaning that modern spy thrillers have “grown too serious”. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson hasn’t been at the Oscars since 2011. This year, the Academy has invited her to present. It’s a good selection. Because, as previously mentioned, with the exception of Reese Witherspoon and Bradley Cooper, this year’s nominees aren’t marquee names for the MiniVan Majority. Full Story

There’s a steadily growing swell of hype surrounding Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak, which released its first trailer today (spurred on by a bootleg copy making the rounds after it debuted in front of Fifty Shades of Grey last night—when will studios learn that they cannot stop this from happening and just release trailers BEFORE they’re slated to premiere in theaters?). Full Story

This Best Actor race is the tightest category face-off in years. Like Lainey wrote yesterday, it might be too close to call. But since Oscar voting ends on Tuesday, the top three contenders — Eddie Redmayne, Michael Keaton and Bradley Cooper — are now in the final phase of campaigning, which means it's time to kiss babies. Full Story

The new Cameron Crowe movie… For a while there it had no title. Now that it has a trailer, it has to have a title: Aloha. So. Yeah. The name is sh-t. But the cast. This cast!

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer is vintage porn

February 12, 2015 16:12:46 Posted at February 12, 2015 16:12:46
Sarah Posted by Sarah

It’s all kinds of porny—suit porny, handsome-guy-porny, spy porny—but mostly it’s straight vintage porn. The first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is here and it looks amazing. I mean literally, it LOOKS amazing. Ritchie has always been a stylish director, but this is some next-level retro cinema sh*t that I can’t stop watching. Full Story

I would have liked to see the Sam Taylor-Johnson’s version of Fifty Shades Of Grey without the EL James interference. I would have liked to see her make the movie that was her complete vision.

Like I’ve been saying for weeks, I went in there hoping for the rubs, hoping to see a movie that would get me off. I think we all were – Cynthia Loyst, Jessica Allen, and I went together, with no expectations but with also with no hate. Full Story

Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck looks terrific

Remember when Bridesmaids was a huge hit and we thought it would kick-start a trend of comedies made for grown-ups that happened to feature smart, funny women? Yeah, that…didn’t happen. Instead we got Melissa McCarthy Falls Down and Melissa McCarthy Falls Down 2: Mall Falls. Basically, instead of Bridesmaids being a trendsetter it ended up being an outlier. Full Story
