Remember Kate Hudson’s hysterically bad poster for what looks to be her upcoming hysterically bad movie A Little Bit of Heaven? Click here if you’ve forgotten. Full Story

For Rachel McAdams. How hard are you for Rachel McAdams? Gorgeous Rachel McAdams quivered everyone at the NY premiere of Morning Glory last night. I mean, Michael Sheen didn’t have a chance, did he? For those of you asking, far as I know, as of 2 weeks ago, they were still happening. The way she looks here, it’s probably still happening. Full Story

Right? Would this movie just f-cking come out already? It’s been at every festival, it premiered at the AFI Fest in Hollywood on Saturday night. But still it won’t hit theatres until late December, in limited release (!), and with a dumbass NC17 rating. I have blue balls from wanting to see it again. Full Story

They were all on set yesterday shooting a scene in which there’s a pawn shoppe robbery or something – Ryan Gosling, Christina Hendricks, and Carey Mulligan in pink. Really not sure why they keep dressing him like an Elvis impersonator but whatever, when that jacket comes off, there’s not much to complain about. Full Story

Many of your questions during our liveblog discussions on Tuesdays and Thursdays and your emails too involve casting for The Hunger Games series. Right now, no one has been confirmed. And from what I heard, as of early this week, there’s not even a shortlist. So they are seeing everyone. And everyone wants it. Full Story

These are photos of Carey Mulligan shooting Drive with Ryan Gosling in a diner the other day. She was also shot by the paps this weekend (those photos are exclusive and very expensive) leaving her new temporary home in Los Angeles, a Best Western. And not in a swanky part of town. And it’s not like she can’t afford to stay somewhere more upscale. Full Story

They really do look good together

But don’t they? Carey Mulligan and Ryan Gosling continued to shoot Drive yesterday, seen here on location at a park in Los Angeles. This however is not a romantic comedy. It’s the story of the morally ambiguous Driver who gets f-cked up on a heist and is now out for revenge. The heart isn’t usually happy happy in films like these. Full Story

Bieber with gravitas

I LOVE Gordon Pinsent. We all were in love with Gordon Pinsent when Away From Her was making its Oscar run a couple of years ago. Last year I sat next to him at the Heart Truth fashion show featuring his daughter. He was so adorably proud, and clapped and beamed so enthusiastically every time he saw her, my heart hurt just watching him. Full Story

Movie Drake

I wrote the other day that, being Canadian, it's a professional obligation to care about Justin Bieber. He's one of the biggest entertainers on the planet, whether you agree with that or not. Drake is also one of the biggest entertainers on the planet, also Canadian, also a professional obligation, but not nearly as cloying. Full Story

Spike TV’s Scream 2010 happened this weekend in LA. They honoured the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future with Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd and the DeLorean. Fox showed up with wife Tracy Pollan. They look so great, don’t they look so great? I like him in skinny jeans. He was 24 when Back to the Future was released. Full Story

Ryan Gosling dirty and greasy on the set of Drive. I’ll give you a minute. His other film Blue Valentine screened today at the London Film Festival represented by co-star Michelle Williams. She’s there shooting her Marilyn Monroe project, explains the shock blonde hair. It’s severe but on her I like it very much. Full Story
