There's a war going on between Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and George Clooney. It started at the Golden Globes. One of their best jokes was about Clooney and Gravity -- how he'd rather float off into space and die than talk to a woman his own age. The entire ballroom erupted. They loved it. And George took it well. Full Story

“We gotta move”

That’s a line from this new Monuments Mens trailer that was just released. And it could apply to the film’s awards season strategy too. They have to move. They have to move now because otherwise 12 Years A Slave will walk away with it. If they want to give 12 Years a run at all, they have to move. Full Story

Yesterday when I wrote about Channing Tatum being pleasant and, ugh, really likeable all over Chicago, I called him the new Matt Damon. And then last night the real Matt Damon turned up on The Colbert Report to remind us all what being Matt Damon is like —funny and personable and really, really humble. Full Story

If you’re into Matt Damon, this will only make you love him more. He’s currently promoting Elysium. Was at Letterman yesterday. But he was also on Univision recently. I don’t know why there’s a chihuahua called Halle Berry sitting on his lap. I do know however that Halle Berry’s bewildered expression says it all, as she enjoys a 5 minute ear stroking from a big Hollywood star who gamely plays along. Full Story

Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium was featured on a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly. Jess Cagle writes in the editor’s note that many of the box office disappointments this year were unoriginal movies. Even the ones who weren’t sequels, like The Lone Ranger and After Earth, were basically just recycled versions of the stars’ previous releases. Full Story

Matt Damon was at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln today for student orientation. Apparently he’s the “parent, guardian, or mentor” to a young man, reportedly his nephew. According to school officials, he asked to be given no special treatment whatsoever, preferring to take the campus tour as every other “parent, guardian, or mentor” does. Full Story

George Clooney and Matt Damon were in the English countryside continuing work on The Monuments Men. The photo agency has labelled the other dude as Jean Dujardin...but that doesn’t look like him to me. You? Anyway, what a great opportunity to segue back, again, to Behind The Candelabra. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I can’t believe Michael Douglas won’t be receiving an Oscar nomination for his work in Behind The Candelabra. Because he is BRILLIANT in Behind The Candelabra. An actor still at the very, very, very top of his game. And Matt Damon too. And Steven Soderbergh.

Behind The Candelabra is so f-cking good, I watched it twice last night, back to back. You know what the word is? It’s a word I never, ever, ever use because it’s so, so, SO overused:

Fabulous.

But how else to say it? Fabulous, and sad, and hysterical. The kind of movie you keep playing, if only to learn the lines. What makes it even more fabulous is that fabulous was not their goal. They played it straight, no pun intended. In playing it straight, the authenticity gave way to the fabulous, organically.  Read Full Intro

Behind The Candelabra in Cannes

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were in Cannes today to promote Behind The Candelabra, premiering on HBO and HBO Canada on Sunday. Here’s where I get spoiled and whiny and wonder about my screener. That said, I also haven’t checked the mail in several days. By the way, Game Of Thrones fans, Episode 9 has been pre-empted because of Memorial Day and Candelabra will air in its place so don’t be surprised if you tune in on Sunday expecting the Khaleesi and find a lot of rhinestone, marble, and hairspray instead. Full Story

George Clooney, his producing partner Grant Heslov, and Matt Damon have been shooting The Monuments Men in Germany the last couple of months. Evidently they needed a break. So they spent a few days in Italy... It’s almost summertime. Which means it’s Como Time. At least it is for George, who has no wife and children to go back to during his down time. Full Story

Please don’t let Elysium be disappointing like Prometheus

Sarah Posted by Sarah

Was there a bigger let down last year than Prometheus? All the hype, is-it-Alien/is-it-not-Alien, the series of good trailers and stellar viral marketing, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender AND Idris Elba in a movie together, and then…it kind of sucked. A lot. Sci-fi is hard. Full Story

Liberace was Gay Boogyman

The new trailer is out for Behind The Candelabra, HBO’s biopic about Liberace (Michael Douglas) and his boyfriend (Matt Damon), and damn if it doesn’t look like everything you could want it to be. Douglas playing into his naturally creepy old-man vibe, Matt Damon in a speedo (bonus Rob Lowe bulge!), plus coke, capes, and bathtub drama! A description of this movie reads like a Stefan sketch from SNL ie: Behind The Candelabra’s got everything. Full Story
