Two days in a row of Tom Hardy. He’s at the Child 44 premiere with Noomi Rapace. I said I wanted to see him in a well-tailored suit. He’s in a well-tailored suit. Is that working for you? If I say some hair and less beard would help will he show up tomorrow with more hair and less beard? They put together a legacy trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road connecting the old with the new. Full Story

As previously mentioned in the Emma Stone post, the Cannes Film Festival released their list this morning; Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, will be screened in competition. Two of the finest actors of a generation playing the Frank and Claire Underwood of their time. You want ambition? The Macbeths knew ambition. Full Story

Today is the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Anaheim, California—basically a Comic-Con Hall H presentation without Hall H—and JJ Abrams and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (or however that title officially goes) debuted a second teaser trailer. The movie doesn’t come out till Christmas, so we have plenty of time for full-blown plot-revealing trailers, but there’s a lot of new footage and information to digest. Full Story

The Cannes Film Festival announced its lineup today. Among the films screening out of competition, Woody Allen’s An Irrational Man starring Emma Stone, apparently his new muse, and Joaquin Phoenix. So Emma’s going to Cannes. For the first time, I think. Emma’s dress porn is always first class. Full Story

Have you seen Ryan Gosling in The United States Of Leland? It was years ago. His character had dark hair. He was adorable. Ryan Gosling is currently working on The Big Short. His character has dark hair. He is not adorable. Maybe it’s age. OMG, in this case, a rare case, is age actually gender democratic? Ryan Gosling, the celebrity human pillow, now in his 30s, doesn’t look good with dark hair. Full Story

Sarah told me about this last night just before I fell asleep and I’ve read 3 articles about it this morning and I still don’t really understand what’s happening or why. Here’s what I think I know: Zack Snyder directed Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Everybody’s been waiting for the first full trailer. Full Story

Well Thanks God these photos weren’t released at the beginning of the day because I would have put my hand down my pants and ceased production. Charlie Hunnam in Wales today shooting Guy Ritchie’s Knights Of The Round Table. Look at his hair. Full Story

Tom Hardy’s been working on The Revenant for months in Canada. On Monday he returned to London from Calgary. Next: promotion for Mad Max: Fury Road, one of the most anticipated movies of the season. So… he’ll be on the press tour with a shaved head and a heavy beard. A bonus for him because he seems to enjoy suppressing his hotness. Full Story

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River, opened to widespread scorn and general derision at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Now, it is available on streaming platforms and in three theaters nationwide in what distributor Warner Brothers says is absolutely the release they always intended for Gosling’s debut feature film and is in no way a quick and relatively quiet shuffling off of an embarrassingly bad film from a high-profile rookie filmmaker. Full Story

Adonis is a GREAT name. I mean it’s a balls out name, for sure. And Duana would say it’s a lot of expectation to give to a baby. But holy sh-t, imagine meeting an Adonis who actually fit the name Adonis? Michael B Jordan is totally an Adonis. And that’s his character in the new Rocky movie: Apollo Creed’s (one of the great names in all the movies) grandson, a boxer, trained by Balboa, obviously. Full Story

On paper, would you ever consider giving Carey Mulligan top billing over Meryl Streep for a movie? Their star power and cinematic trajectories couldn’t be more different. But that’s what happens in the first trailer for Suffragette, which was released today. It’s a first look at what many are calling an awards season favourite. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was reported yesterday that Ben Affleck’s name appears before Henry Cavill’s name in the credit listing for Batman vs Superman. This is usually negotiated in the contract. And some people are like, OMG, why? Please. This makes sense to everyone except for Henry Cavill fans.

Ben Affleck probably gets top billing over all but, maybe, 6 or 7 other people in Hollywood. And as I mentioned last week, even though he’s Superman – like, he’s SUPERMAN – Henry Cavill’s not actually that big of a deal overall. I’ve been thinking about this lately. About how famous people really are. Was talking to a friend last week about her brother.  Read Full Intro

Imperator Furiosa and Mad Max are on their way. So promotion begins with Charlize Theron on the cover of ESQUIRE. I posted photos from the shoot in January. As you’ve heard, Charlize and Tom Hardy weren’t best friends during production. Full Story

Blake Lively: doing it all “elegantly”

Blake Lively covers the new issue of ALLURE in advance of the release of The Age Of Adaline. That means she’s probably not covering VOGUE with the baby, which is what I was expecting. I mean I thought for sure, non? So I was wrong. But motherhood is on the table. It’s Blake’s first acting promotion in a long time and her first after James’s arrival. Full Story
