Dear Gossips,

A new Mockingjay Part 1 teaser was released yesterday featuring just Jennifer Lawrence, returning home to District 12 to survey the damage, under manipulation by Plutarch Heavensbee to fight for the rebel forces. This was one of the strongest elements of The Hunger Games series – even the “good guys” were assholes.

Five weeks now until Mockingjay opens. Five weeks until everyone at the box office gets the f-ck out of the way of Jennifer Lawrence, Hollywood’s reigning Most Popular on an impressive 2+ year run, so far immune to the inevitable onset of actress backlash, even after getting hacked. How? Anne Hathaway probably wants to know. Part of it is that Lawrence isn’t papped day after day after day. She can go undercover for long weeks at a time.  Read Full Intro

Um. Yeah. I linked to one of these shots of Jamie Dornan in the November issue of British VOGUE yesterday. And I just saw a few more of them. Really, really, REALLY good photo shoot. The first image I attached? Sh-t, when I first looked at it I couldn’t breathe. But he doesn’t always do it for me. Full Story

The trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea was released earlier today. Convenient! Because I was wondering how I would use these new Chris Hemsworth photos – he was papped at LAX yesterday and he’s the star of the film. It’s based on a true story, the incident that inspired Moby Dick, of a group of men out in the water on their boat and they’re attacked by the Godzilla of whales. Full Story

I have officially hit the halfway point of the Chicago International Film Festival. It is October 16th, and between the festival and squeezing in some commercial releases to meet writing commitments, I’ve seen sixteen movies so far this month. I have fifteen left to go, including four double-headers. Full Story

I received the cutest email yesterday from a reader, S, who wrote: Lainey, My husband is going to have to send you thank you cases of Miraval Rosé for posting that behind the scenes video because I am so primed to bang his brains out when he get home from work. That f-cker is not going to make it past the foyer!  Hugs & Rubs Right? Brad Pitt in DETAILS. Full Story

Brad Pitt in DETAILS: The Man Crush

Shia LaBeouf isn’t alone. He’s made it very clear that Brad Pitt is the “top dog”, as he described it on Kimmel the other day, the John Wayne of Fury, the one you sit down and shut up around…as you gaze adoringly. This is a Man Crush. Shia has one. DETAILS apparently has one too. Full Story

Entertainment Weekly has the first official photo of Emma Stone as Sally Bowles in advance of her Broadway debut in Cabaret on November 11, taking over from Michelle Williams. This is… GOOD. Very good. Sally fronts a don’t-give-a-f-ck attitude even though her life gets pretty wretched – by her own decisions, her own attitude, compelled by her own confusion. Full Story

Warner Brothers is in the middle of their annual shareholder presentation right now, and CEO Kevin Tsujihara just dropped some major info bombs regarding the future of their DC movies slate, confirming a Wonder Woman solo movie in 2017, along with the proper Justice League team-up flick that Superhero Face Punch is setting up (which will also be directed by Zack Snyder), and an Aquaman Full Story

Keanu Reeves was in New York for the premiere of John Wick on Monday night, the same day he was on Reddit for an AMA. I wasn’t paying attention the last time he did an AMA but there’s a quirk. A Keanu Reeves quirk: he answers a lot of questions with “today”. Example: how do you like your eggs? Today, I like my eggs over-easy. Full Story

Brad kisses Shia

Shia LaBeouf’s hero, Brad Pitt John Wayne, greeted him with a kiss to the hand last night at the New York premiere of Fury. As far as we know, the event happened without incident. No drunken outbursts, no fights, no plagiarism. Would Shia dare when Brad’s around? It’s an interesting reaction – the response to authority, or perceived authority. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch’s campaign of inclusion

It’s mid-October, which means that award season is in full swing, and as such the actors starring in award bait are beginning to lay the foundation of their Oscar campaigns. We’re still over a month away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s The Imitation Game opening in the US, but he’s got a profile in Out in support of the film. Full Story

Got yelled at by several Brangelunatics the last few days for not posting about Angelina Jolie getting honourary damed by the Queen on Friday. Because I had laser eye surgery and then it was Thanksgiving in Canada. So that's a lesson for you all: nothing is more important than Brange - not your vision, not family, not holiday. Full Story

Shia LaBeouf. I mean, it’s Shia LaBeouf. You can describe him in all kinds of ways – most of them negative: troubled child star, plagiarist, stunt queen, belligerent, a very bad drunk, etc, etc, etc. He’s also a good actor. And an entertainer. That’s the quality that got him discovered, and I’ve always said this about Shia LaBeouf – he’s watchable, when he’s right it’s the right kind of charisma; he has It. Full Story

RDJ has been talking up a potential extension of his contract to play Iron Man, and everyone jumped on the Iron Man 4 grenade, because he made some wiseass comments about Iron Man 4. I didn’t buy that he was in talks for another Iron Man installment, but that he could be extending his deal to make room for a fourth Avengers movie. Full Story
