Last holiday season’s movie talk was dominated by The Interview, the Seth Rogen movie that may or may not have prompted the Sony Hack. Sony famously dumped The Interview’s release, fearing further action from the hackers—they were already on their knees, it wasn’t an unreasonable thought—and ultimately it landed online, available through Google and Sony platforms. Full Story

Chris Hemsworth is in Vacation. The Hollywood premiere happened Monday night. His two actor brothers, Liam and Luke, showed up to support. The last time I wrote about the Hemsworths was the first time Duana’s ever been interested in them. It’s the sibling thing. Liam was at Comic-Con. Full Story

With the Fantastic Four reboot just over a week away, Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm, traditionally white in the comic books and originally played in movies by Chris Evans, remains controversial. I can’t believe the number of people who have expressed some version of “but how can Michael B. Full Story

Tom Cruise is currently promoting Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. The reviews so far are good, really good – 94% at post time on Rotten Tomatoes. I saw it on Saturday. And, yeah, I agree. First of all, you don’t go into Mission Impossible expecting Birdman. Full Story

Based on the notorious 1971 study in which a group of Stanford students pretending to be prisoners and prison guards descended into psychological abuse and brutality after barely a day, The Stanford Prison Experiment is an impressive but maybe too literal reconstruction of those events. Dr. Philip Zimbardo randomly divided twenty-four students into prisoners and guards, then left the guards in charge, with the guards, working in shifts of three, running herd on nine prisoners. Full Story

I was hoping to see Olivia Munn at the ESPYs with Aaron Rodgers a couple of weeks ago. He came alone. And she showed up on the cover of Entertainment Weekly instead – click here for a refresher. Sarah wondered in that post if this would finally be Olivia Munn’s moment. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter features the cast of Straight Outta Compton, with Dr Dre and Ice Cube, in advance of the movie release on August 14. Look at this shot of the three young actors (Corey Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr, and Jason Mitchell) playing Dre, Cube, and Eazy-E. That Eazy-E smirk!

The article is a great read – about how long it took to put the film together, about the Suge Knight situation, about how people didn’t think this story would play overseas, and about how F-ck The Police will play in America, now. Again and now.

Donna Langley, head of Universal, also revealed that to promote Straight Outta Compton, they’re working on an NWA reunion tour in Europe, bringing in Eminem, although Dre has since denied  Read Full Intro

Henry Cavill said he couldn’t talk about Fifty Shades Of Darker Grey the other day – click here for a refresher. So we assumed that meant that he was negotiating to play the love rival. And Armie Hammer’s hilarious reaction was exactly what everyone thought about that career move. Full Story

Maybe because the last non-Marvel Chris Evans movie I saw was Playing It Cool, a movie so infuriatingly bad I wanted to throw my television into a volcano after seeing it, but I found myself not hating Evans’ directorial debut, Before We Go. Full Story

Paper Towns is so cheesy and over-the-top, you would think it was a 17-year-old or 18-year-old’s opus. That relatability is what teens love about John Green’s writing…. he’s become their John Hughes. Watching the movie, you can immediately suss out moments that will become Tumblr memes, yearbook quotes and Instagram captions for this generation. Full Story
