Star Wars is Sarah’s domain. This really isn’t a Star Wars post but I’m mentioning it because there’s a new Star Wars TV spot that’s just come out and Lupita is talking about “eyes” and everyone is freaking out because… Is Han Solo Rey’s father? Every time I watch the Star Wars trailer I feel like crying. Full Story

So many films did not meet critical and box office expectations this season. The Martian, however, delivered. You might say it over-delivered. Three months ago, no one was calling it an Oscar frontrunner. Now? The Martian is Ridley Scott’s most well-reviewed film. And it’s on track to make more money than Gladiator. Full Story

Here is Chiwetel Ejiofor on the set of Doctor Strange, continuing to film in Nepal. Benedict Cumberbatch is a polarizing figure on the handsome/not handsome list, but can we all agree that Ejiofor is a Very Handsome Man? Because he is. He looks especially good in these shots because he isn’t sporting a sadness beard like Cumberbatch. Full Story

For a movie about the breaking point of the British Suffragette movement that saw marches and demonstrations turn to vandalism and arson, Suffragette is hella boring. A story that ought to provoke anger and inspire people to action instead provokes yawns and inspires people to check their watch. A historical look at revolutionaries and firebrands is inordinately concerned with making sure we like everyone on screen. Full Story

Here is Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of Doctor Strange, which has begun production just days after Cumberbatch finished his run as Hamlet on the West End. They’re on location in Nepal, which means that Tilda F*cking Swinton is probably around, too, since it’s her character that Stephen Strange meets in Nepal. Full Story

Brange opened AFI Fest last night in LA with By The Sea. She wore champagne Versace. He showed up in a tux. It was full on old Hollywood, and that nostalgic vibe is what they’re trying to evoke in the film too. Ah, yes, the film… The first reviews for By The Sea have been published. Full Story

Surprise! More Star Wars!

After the full trailer was released last month, we weren’t supposed to get any more trailers for New New Star Wars. The JJ Abrams School of SECRETY SECRETS is in full effect and it seemed like we’d seen all we were going to see until the movie opens on December 18. Full Story

When Tom Cruise is promoting a movie, you can’t escape him. He’s tireless. 89 countries in 8 hours! You know. You’ve seen the Tom Cruise press tour. When he’s done with the press tour though, he’s very good at going back undercover. Full Story
