Stephen King’s Gunslinger series—which spans books, short stories, and comic books—is finally coming to the big screen after a long and convoluted development process that saw it pass through JJ Abrams and Ron Howard, who wanted to do a film franchise/TV series combo to tell the hellishly overcomplicated story that Stephen King just kept writing because no one ever tells him enough. Full Story

It’s President’s Day in the United States so a lot of people have the day off. Where I live, it’s Family Day, a provincial holiday, so I don’t have the day off because our show services the entire country. I don’t actually have another day off until March 5th, including weekends, because I’m at a junket this weekend, and then it’s the Oscars the weekend after. Full Story

Idris Elba did not attend the Golden Globes this year. Two years ago, however, he was there with Naiyana Garth and she was pregnant with their son. Idris took his daughter Isan to the SAGs a couple of weeks ago. And I guess that tipped off the UK tabloids because now the Sun is reporting that he and Naiyana broke up. Full Story

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

He was also nominated, alongside his Beasts Of No Nation co-star Abraham Attah, for Best Ensemble.

Dear Gossips,

It’s been six days since the Oscar nominations were announced and every day criticism of the Academy’s pattern of exclusion continues to grow as more and more actors are speaking up and out against the lack of diversity represented on the supposed list of what was the best in film over the last year.  Read Full Intro

Idris Elba was Netflix’s best chance at an Oscar nomination for Beasts Of No Nation. But the Academy isn’t ready yet for Netflix to come and f-ck up the order of the film industry. He was left off the list of Best Supporting Actors. When Straight Outta Compton was called for Best Original Screenplay, I thought, OMG, Compton will make Best Picture! Nope. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

On the one hand, at the 2016 Golden Globes last night, it was all about The Revenant. These were the key words to the film: struggle, survival, the human spirit, and I think Leo threw “trust” in there too. Team Revenant was struggling, surviving, trusting, and embracing the human spirit.  Read Full Intro

I love it when I need to write about someone and they oblige me with new photos. Idris Elba was nominated for two Golden Globe awards this morning. And here he is looking FINE in blue leather today in London. So this post satisfies both the people who care about the Globes and the ones who don’t give a sh-t about awards and just want to get off. Full Story

Idris Elba. His line for Superdry. So they named the store after him, temporarily. But still. I'm a monogram whore. I want my name all over everything. So to me this is badass. Today I opened with Sly Stallone and how the success of Creed might result in a supporting actor nomination for him - perhaps the sentimental story of the Oscar season. Full Story

Idris Elba is in New York. Check him out, fine as f-ck, walking around in a red beanie yesterday. Earlier this week, Idris, Abraham Attah, and Cary Fukunaga were promoting Beasts Of No Nation at TimesTalks. Netflix is doing whatever they can to make these nominations happen. What didn’t happen is Idris being named the Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story
