I’ve been cautiously optimistic about Suicide Squad, mostly based on the direction of David Ayer and the presence of one of my favorite comic book characters, Harley Quinn. A couple weeks ago we got a look at the Squad, dubbed “Task Force X” for the movie, in their costumes, but for one notable absence—Jared Leto as The Joker. Full Story

Right after her Cannes debut, Emma Stone flew to London to join Bradley Cooper to promote Aloha. She returned to LA yesterday. On Saturday though, at the screening, fans noticed that she had a couple of significant guests. Before we get to that though, let’s recap the situation so far: STAR Magazine reported first that Emma and Andrew Garfield were done, because they haven’t been photographed together in a while. Full Story

The first trailer for the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin, creatively titled Steve Jobs, is here and it does not show much beyond Michael Fassbender in a black turtleneck and glasses as Jobs. The movie is still shooting, so it’s no surprise there’s not much footage available, but I do like the tone this trailer is setting. Full Story

Back in 2011, when she was campaigning for an Oscar, I dubbed Natalie Portman “Natalie Never” because her combination belly-cuppy pregnancy and aggressive trophy hunting turned me off so hard I couldn’t deal with her at all. A proto-I Can’t Full Story

Woody Allen’s Irrational Man photo call and presser in Cannes today. And Emma Stone’s Cannes first time. Maybe that’s why Emma went with a cocktail dress? I mean it’s not a gown. But I feel like it’s a dress you might see at a party. And also a lot more formal than we’ve seen from her before at this kind of event. Full Story

Filming for Captain America: Civil War is underway in Atlanta, and a batch of set photos has popped up showing Chris Evans dressed in a Sad Suit, Looking Sad, and carrying a casket. Who died?! Well, since Emily Van Camp, who plays Sharon Carter, is also present and dressed in black, my guess is Peggy Carter, Cap’s star-crossed love. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal wasn’t at the Palais last night. The jury wasn’t required. Here he is today around town. And pictures of him from opening night on Wednesday looking very smooth in that tux. While Jake had no official engagements to attend on Thursday, he was part of the Weinstein annual Cannes presentation – not necessarily in person but in performance. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

If I was in Cannes, one of the films I’d be queuing for this weekend is the Amy Winehouse documentary directed by Asif Kapadia. Have you seen Senna? One of the best sports documentaries of all time. Obviously more enjoyable if you were a fan of Ayrton Senna but still riveting if you’re not. And I feel like it will be the same with Amy.

I was at a barbecue last weekend when Back To Black came on rotation.

And I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

Duana and I looked at each other and, almost at the same time, sighed, “Oh Amy”.

Oh Amy.

It was announced yesterday that Amy will be released in theatres July 10. The trailer is below.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor worked together on a Woody Allen film called Cassandra’s Dream a few years ago. Here they are arriving in Nice for the Cannes Film Festival today and they happen to be travelling in the same outfit, just coincidence no conspiracy. Ewan knows Cannes. He was a jury member in 2012. Full Story

I remember hearing a story last year of a woman who flew to Australia with an orange and it turned into a major drama when she got there. They’re serious over there about contamination and bio-transfers. So if you have pets, and you’re travelling there with them, they have to go into quarantine. Full Story

Sean Penn joined Charlize Theron at the Palais in Cannes for Mad Max: Fury Road today. Is this supposed to be our substitute for Brange Cannes? Because I reject that. I was however reminded of previous Cannes. There was a year he was there and I was covering it and on the party scene, he was always the last one to go home. Full Story

To bed, to bed, to bed She only says “to bed” once here in the preview but you’ll recall from English class that it’s almost like a mantra for her at that point. Full Story

The first trailer for The Intern, starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, written and directed by Nancy Meyers, was released yesterday. And my first impression is that… This movie is manipulative! Anyone who has an aging dad will be manipulated. Because how do you not watch this and not think of your dad? I think of my dad, I worry about my dad. Full Story

Nostalgia factory to grind up The Craft

The cocaine fueled Everything Is A Good Idea 1990s era of filmmaking produced some of the most insane garbage in the history of cinema. Every decade has its share of bad movies, except the 1990s. In the 90s, “bad” as a category was replaced with “Jesus Christ, how much blow did you DO?”  Everything that came out in that decade is so goddamn weird that there is a movie for every niche, like The Craft, which fills the Teenage Occult Power Fantasy square on the 1990’s What The F*CK Is This Even? bingo card. Full Story
