Thought I’d ease in to today’s column with some love for Kim Coates and fans of Sons Of Anarchy. After the disappointment of season 3 and especially season 4, I’ve not yet decided if I’ll be watching SOA for season 5. That was weak. And, sure, Charlie Hunnam is hot, but I don’t have to waste an hour of my time looking at him playing a decidedly UN-hot character when the internet services me fine, and in 5 minutes or less. Full Story

There must be strong female characters in this movie

I mean, when I see Mark Wahlberg’s mega pecs being directed by Michael Bay, I know FOR SURE that Pain & Gain is a movie that will feature interesting actresses playing interesting characters. Pain & Gain is a real(ish) account of a group of muscleheads extorting a rich dude (Tony Shalhoub) and the sh-t that goes down when they f-ck it all up. Full Story

Taylor Kitsch was in Japan this weekend promoting both John Carter and Battleship. We went 4 for 5 last week on Taylor Kitsch photos and posts. Would it be too much to ask to be able to match it this week? Good start so far...As you can see, Alexander Skarsgard has now joined the Battleship cast on the promotional tour having missed a few stops. Full Story

Taylor Kitsch photos were available 4 out of 5 days this week, a first for Taylor Kitsch. It’s easy of course since he’s currently in Europe promoting Battleship, stopping today in Spain with Brooklyn Decker and Peter Berg. Looks relaxed, doesn’t he? I like him so much in these shots. The more he does this, the more comfortable he’s becoming, the more his body language convinces me he believes (finally) that he belongs here. Full Story

Oh stop.You wanted the rest of that sentence to be “to Eva Mendes”, didn’t you? Eva wasn’t around on Ryan’s final day on the set of Only God Forgives. Here he is saying goodbye to the crew in Thailand before heading home to, sorry, Eva who was waiting for him back at the hotel. I posted photos of the two earlier this week - click here Full Story

See? Taylor Kitsch is getting properly papped now. Remember that the next time you want to sh-t on John Carter and before you sh-t on Battleship. Which is what he’s promoting right now. Check out TK last night in London returning to his hotel and not totally hating the flashbulbs in his face. For now. Full Story

Sarah from Cinesnark says that John Carter might break even, eventually, but that it’s still considered a bust considering how much it cost to make and market it. Yes, John Carter took a massive dump. But there’s one good thing to have come from it: Taylor Kitsch gets papped now. Full Story
