In addition to Benedict Cumberbatch, Reese Witherspoon was also one of the surprise names left off the list of Independent Spirit Award nominees. Reese is considered to be in the second position, after Julianne Moore, for Best Actress Oscar nominee for her performance in Wild. And if we’re working on the McConaissance plan (his agent, Jim Toth, is her husband), ideally she’d be at the Spirits the night before Oscar Sunday. Full Story

That Aaron Sorkin/Steve Jobs biopic has had a busy few weeks. First Christian Bale was in —  confirmed by Sorkin himself! But then Christian Bale was out. Then Michael Fassbender was in talks to play Jobs—he’s still attached to the project but nothing is official yet. Full Story

Angelina Jolie is in Paris today. She was photographed at Vivement Dimanche in black, smiling at the crowd. Obviously she’s out there promoting Unbroken. And talking about her marriage too. You know that’s what all the entertainment reporters want to discuss. Like, if I was assigned to the Unbroken junket, I’d probably have to get off a question about the wedding too. Full Story

Everyone was expecting The Imitation Game and Benedict Cumberbatch to be called when the Independent Spirit Award nominations were revealed yesterday. Cumberbatch is considered a top 2 contender for Best Actor Oscar and then there’s the Harvey Weinstein factor. Remember what he did with Silver Linings Playbook? But Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game, and, really, Harvey overall were totally shut out of the Spirits. Full Story

It’s been 22 years since Jurassic Park failed its safety inspection, and Jurassic World, the culmination of John Hammond’s dream for a living-dinosaur theme park, is now open for business. What could possibly go wrong? I mean, besides the dinosaurs getting loose—again—and eating people touring the park—again—and then escaping the island—again—and eating people on the mainland—again. Full Story

Tonight was the UK premiere of Unbroken. Angelina wore white. With a mini-cape. I wish she'd gotten more creative with the footwear but, then again, it's not supposed to be about "fashion" with her. On this night, Angelina Jolie is a filmmaker, a crusader, and a friend to military personnel. Full Story

First look at Pan

Joe Wright is a good director. And I did like Hook, with Robin Williams. But this first look at Pan…an origin story… I have some concerns. One concern is Hugh Jackman’s hair. Can you see the wig line – glaringly – across the top of his head in several shots? These are the kinds of details that can become distracting. Full Story

In a while… Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were in London last night at the premiere of Paddington. And the reviews I’ve read so far have been very positive. The Mirror called it the “finest family film ever made”. Kids who were at the screenings loved it, even though there was some controversy about its PG rating – click here Full Story

Zoolander 2 is so hot right now

Rumors of a Zoolander sequel have circulated off and on for years, but yesterday sh*t got real when Deadline published a report that Penelope Cruz has signed onto the movie, with Justin Theroux writing the script and Ben Stiller directing. Originally, Deadline said Theroux would direct, but his commitment to The Leftovers season 2 won’t leave him enough time, so Stiller is helming. Full Story
