Dear Holly Bario, you smart executive who wisely gave the greenlight to Eleanor & Park… Sometimes I get mad at the concept of word of mouth.  It seems like such an egalitarian but inefficient system.  Like, why do I have to wait that long to find things out that might be awesome, that might have been improving my life all this time? This is how I feel about Rainbow Rowell’s books, and Eleanor & Park in particular. Full Story

And also she kicks all of the ass. In a movie, anyway. The first trailer for Luc Besson’s latest, Lucy, was released and it’s pretty much just ScarJo and her mutant eyes destroying everyone around her. The plot reminds me of that dumb Bradley Cooper movie, Limitless, in which a drug accesses the 90% of the brain that we “don’t use” and thus makes the protagonist super smart and super capable, except Lucy looks more like a straight action movie than Limitless. Full Story

Cameron Diaz is promoting The Other Woman hard right now with Leslie Mann and Kate Upton. She's in London tonight for the premiere looking fantastic in a black leather dress, WOW. It's the kind of dress you put on as a f-ck you to this headline: 2014 Is the Year of Cameron Diaz (Making Bad-Looking Movies) That came from this article Full Story

She kind of is already, right? Meryl is Meryl like Madonna is Madonna, like Beyonce is Beyonce, like Adele is Adele, like Lorde is Lorde. Meryl is Hollywood’s rock star (sorry Johnny),  so it makes sense that she will now play a rock star. Full Story

I think it’s time for a come to Jesus. I think we need to sit down and decide what’s important—I mean really important—and what you want the film industry to look like in the 21st century. Because we’re fourteen years into a new millennium and things are evolving, socially, politically and culturally. Full Story

Noah did solid business at the box office this weekend opening at $44 million which means… it’s not a flop. Considering that the film has made almost $100 million overseas already, I’d say the studio is now much more relieved. Or maybe the bad press that surrounded the movie actually helped in the end? People were curious about the controversy. Full Story

Someone called Tammy wrote to me today: “Yep, have to say, pretty burnt out on the Andrew/Emma show.  Wonder if this relationship will last past the Spiderman movies or if the PR parade will end soon after...  I'm actually not overly fond of either.  Can we move on?” The answer is…No. Full Story

Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes out on Friday. This is your daily reminder that it’s really good (it’s tied with Iron Man for the highest-rated Marvel movie yet). Since it’s the last week of publicity, we have a lot of new appearances from Chris Evans as he shills hard in the last days before the box office is open for business. Full Story

When was the last time I said that Johnny Depp looks good? Sh-t. I’m taking a closer look at these shots, especially the ones where he’s seated and I can’t see his dumb pants, and he looks REALLY good. I like the wave in his hair. His skin isn’t scaring me. I can almost – almost – forget that he’s kind of become a cheeseball. Full Story

Wasn’t super excited about X-Men: Days Of Future Past until this morning. Because look at these great shots of Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy promoting the film in London today. They’re both in leather jackets. Great. They’re both hot, obviously. Great. But they’re also our favourites – two of the nicest, kindest actors in the business, always gracious, always generous, always fun. Full Story

I was juuuuust wondering last week if I missed Tom Cruise. And oh look, here he is, last night in London at the Empire Film Awards where he was named Legend Of Our Lifetime. Does that sound redundant to you? It’s like honouring someone for being Beautiful & Gorgeous. But fine. It’s not like he doesn’t deserve it. Full Story

I can never tell when someone is early pregnant. If I didn’t know that Mila Kunis was pregnant, I’d never think she was pregnant seeing her here with Channing Tatum at CinemaCon yesterday to promote Jupiter Ascending, due out July 18th. I’ve not seen any soundbites coming out of the appearance about her future motherhood, have you? Send to me if you have. Full Story

Justin Timberlake and his wife were in Barbados last week. You can see those pictures here. Last night they were photographed at LAX en route to London. JT resumes his tour in the UK on Sunday. Mrs T has no projects lined up – that we know of – so she has time to join him on the trip. Full Story
