The last time a group of comely young singers came together for a musical movie sequel about a choir; it was Sister Act 2 - a movie which, no joke, has informed my friendships, my wedding, my career. And which, it goes without saying, far surpassed the kick-ass-in-its-own-right original. There is nothing wrong with a surprise sequel to a choir movie. Full Story

How’s this for a great photo call and red carpet? Mockingjay is expected to be the biggest movie of the season. And it’s being represented on the press tour by a predominantly female cast. The Hunger Games is in London. Yesterday was the photo call with Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, and Natalie Dormer. Full Story

Elizabeth Banks in Beverly Hills yesterday -- with brown hair now. Is this new? Must be, right? Last time I checked her at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, she was blonde. And best dressed.  Still blonde and very, very yellow -- Carrie Underwood in Ireland. Full Story

I’ve really, really liked Elizabeth Banks ever since The 40 Year Old Virgin. She’s smart and funny and a great character actress in a time when everyone is trying to be a leading lady. So I was surprised when perusing iVillage’s celebrity mom blogger section (yes, this is a real thing) to find her there. Full Story

There were several peplums represented last night.  To me Amy Poehler wore hers best. She looked the most comfortable. And really, really confident. No clunky accessories around her neck, nothing extra about the hair, although, God, I really wish they’d let it die, that skirt feathering from 2006. Full Story

We are just about 5 months away from The Hunger Games movie in March. So far it’s been one step forward, one step back, particularly as it relates to casting. Lionsgate has released 8 character posters to start building momentum. There’s a lot of photoshopping and skin doctoring happening here. And still, I don’t hate it. Full Story

It’s not, like, knee-slappingly funny but I wonder if a comedy always has to be knee-slappingly funny. There was a moment, for example, in The Hangover, which I did not consider to be a good movie, when I knee-slap laughed. I did not, however, knee-slap laugh often, if at all, during I Love You Man. Full Story

THR is reporting that Elizabeth Banks is in talks to play Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games. Must discuss this during the liveblog. I can see what they’re going for in the sense that Effie is the ultimate packager from the Capitol. In that spirit, Effie is totally Hollywood. Full Story

Elizabeth Banks. See I thought she was a beige person. Not particularly exciting. But Cannes, Cannes brings out the real drama. And often the real bitch. So no, she’s definitely not beige. She just might be the next Sharon Stone. At the Grey Goose event on Saturday night… Have to describe the setting: So it’s a chateau. Full Story
