The cast of The Martian, led by Matt Damon, was in London tonight for the UK premiere. So far the reviews for The Martian have been quite strong. Sarah saw it at TIFF and liked it a lot and Sarah’s hard to please. But when I saw her after the screening, she wasn’t angry at all about spending two hours in the theatre watching it. Full Story

The last time I outright enjoyed a Ridley Scott movie, no reservations, no qualifications or conditions, was American Gangster in 2007. Since then he’s given us Grimdark Robin Hood, the space-magic bullsh*t of Prometheus, and the super messy but ambitious The Counselor, plus some other stuff no one cares about (AHEM EXODUS). Full Story

If you have any doubts that Margot Robbie can act, or that Chiwetel Ejiofor is one of the very best actors of his generation, or that Chris Pine is a cut above your average Franchise Chris, Z For Zachariah will lay those doubts to rest. The three of them—the only three people in the entire film—are very good as maybe the last people on Earth, with Ejiofor going above and beyond and delivering a killer performance that is sure to be overlooked because this film is so small and weird no one will see it. Full Story

This should have been the title of the movie. The first trailer for Secret In Their Eyes has been released starring Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Nicole Kidman. It’s based on an Argentinian film (that went on to win the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.) That’s important to note because, well, it won the Oscar. Full Story

The Martian: Also NOPE

I called Everest a big bag of NOPE after watching the first trailer, and after sitting through Fox’s three minute-plus first trailer for The Martian, I am adding this movie to the NOPE bag, too. Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian is based on Andy Weir’s novel (adapted by Drew Goddard) about an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars after a manned mission is forced to abort. Full Story

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

Coming off a disappointing opening-night film with The Bronze, Sundance rebounded over the weekend with Craig Zobel's Z for Zachariah, the end-of-the-world love triangle movie. Starring Chris Pine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Margot Robbie, the film has been getting great reviews Full Story

Look, it’s not just Matthew McConaughey who’s getting invited to every award show. Chiwetel Ejiofor is going to the Emmys too. He’s been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries for his work on Dancing On The Edge up against Billy Bob Thornton, Mark Ruffalo, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Idris Elba. Full Story

They’re going to try to make a deal in Cannes this week for a film called The Secret In Their Eyes, adapted from the Oscar winning Argentine film of the same name. Production will begin in Boston in the fall. Fresh off his first nomination, Chiwetel Ejiofor will play the lead, a retired spy who comes back into the game because he can’t forget about a case that he couldn’t close. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey was not a factor in the Best Actor category at the BAFTAs. So it was Chiwetel Ejiofor vs Leonardo DiCaprio. Chiwetel won. And I wish he could win at the Oscars on March 2. Because as I’ve already said and will repeat again: Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club is basically Matthew McConaughey in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, just 40 lbs lighter. Full Story

Chiwetel Ejiofor was nominated for Best Actor Oscar today. Cate Blanchett was nominated for Best Actress Oscar today. Here they are, posing together, at the AACTA Awards on the weekend. Will they be doing the same on March 2nd with their trophies in hand? Oh I hope so. The two favourites, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey, can kiss all the babies and shake all the hands they want to, but I hope in the end it’s Chiwetel. Full Story

Certain corners of the internet have been damp down there after seeing this photo of Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender getting down at the FOX after-party on Sunday night following the Golden Globes celebrating the Best Drama win for 12 Years A Slave. I would be damp if Chiwetel Ejiofor was in the shot. Full Story
