Dear Gossips,

Universal announced yesterday that By The Sea, written and directed by Angelina Jolie, starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, will be released November 13. November is definitely not January. Or February. November is an award season sweet spot.  Read Full Intro

Tom Hardy at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere last night. Yeah. He looked hot. Intense, as always, which is part of it, I think. It’s not like you’re always citing his smile as his best feature. So Tom Hardy is the new Mad Max. The original Mad Max, as you know, is Mel Gibson who made a surprise appearance and they posed together with director George Miller. Full Story

On Monday, Joss Whedon quit Twitter.

I didn’t think much of it at first, but by the end of the day the internet was going nuts, saying that Whedon didn’t quit, he was run out of electrical town on rails by a horde of rage-feminists who were mad at him for something about the Black Widow. Full Story
