Dear Gossips,

Zayn Malik has achieved what One Direction couldn’t: Pillowtalk is #1 in its first week on the Billboard Hot 100. Part of that, of course, has to do with One Direction fan support, certainly. But a lot of it is how he’s managed his profile the last couple of months.  Read Full Intro

And isn’t that the best of all fake computer movie bears? A new trailer for Jon Favreau’s update of The Jungle Book was released as part of the Super Bowl Trailer Apocalypse, and goddamn this movie looks gorgeous. Watch the new trailer and keep in mind two things: 1) The animals are not real, not even one, and 2) none of the locations are real, either. Full Story

How well do you know your partner? How well do you think you would—or could—know them, if given forty-five years together? Andrew Haigh’s 45 Years is a film about marriage but concerned with knowing, and it is a devastating, slow-motion vivisection of a marriage shaken by knowledge. Full Story

Sunday’s Super Bowl Trailer Apocalypse also included a new TV spot for X-Men: Apocalypse, the superhero movie I can never seem to remember is coming out this summer.

Every time it comes up I have an “Oh yeah, that exists” reaction, and it’s my job to keep track of this stuff. Full Story

Happy New Year! Gung Hay Fat Choy! It's the Year of the Monkey. The Monkey is a playful, fun-loving, sometimes mischievous sign. Miley Cyrus was born a monkey. She is such a monkey. It's understandable to presume that when it's your year it should go your way.  Read Full Intro
