I didn’t know there would be new photos of Mark Ruffalo when I namechecked Mark Ruffalo just now in the previous post about Timothy Olyphant but look, here he is arriving in Venice today looking scruffy and rumpled and…delicious. Mark is there because Spotlight is screening out of competition at the Venice Film Festival. Full Story

The last time I posted photos of Jennifer Aniston on the set of Mother’s Day, mentioning that Timothy Olyphant is playing her ex-husband in the movie, I got yelled at. Some of you were pissed that I didn’t include photos of him. OK but there were no photos of him that day. There are now. Full Story

After #BackToHogwarts, Idris Elba is currently the biggest trending topic on Twitter at post time. It’s because Anthony Horowitz who wrote the new Bond book, Trigger Mortis, has offered his opinion to the Daily Mail on whether or not Idris Elba would be a good James Bond: “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. Full Story

Emma Stone’s been shooting La La Land with Ryan Gosling. And there have been all kinds of rumours that she and Ryan are going to happen. If they didn’t happen the two previous times, I’m thinking it’s unlikely to happen now. Also, she’s still with Andrew Garfield, even if they don’t get papped once a week. Full Story

Brad Pitt was in England yesterday at the MotoGP British Grand Prix. He narrated the documentary Hitting The Apex about motorcycle racing that comes out this week. While I think Brad is totally underrated as an actor (he lets everyone else around him be their best, which is an often overlooked talent), I’m not convinced he’s effective as a narrator. Full Story

We Are Your Friends, aka “the Zac Efron DJ movie”, is basically a remake of Saturday Night Fever with EDM substituting for disco and the San Fernando Valley for pre-hipster Brooklyn, and a vast, sucking void where its box office should have been. Full Story

STAR Magazine apparently reported in their issue this week that Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender might not be together anymore because he parties too much. I only learned of this from Gossip Cop because they’ve published a counter story calling STAR out on the claim. According to Gossip Cop, who spoke to sources close to Alicia, STAR’s article is “inaccurate”. Full Story

I’m going to go ahead and put a SPOILER warning on this, even though I don’t think anything released by a movie studio as part of marketing counts as a spoiler. But I get tired of spoiler babies crying in my inbox, so SPOILERS, if you’re trying to avoid any and everything relating to New New Star Wars. Full Story

We were hoping that Brange would be on the festival circuit with By The Sea. Then both Venice and TIFF announced their lineups and … no Brange. Turns out the Jolie was saving it for AFI Fest. AFI Fest announced today that By The Sea, written and directed by Angelina Jolie, starring Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Melanie Laurent, will be the opening night film. Full Story

Fresh off her wedding and honeymoon, Jennifer Aniston is back at work, seen here in Atlanta on the set of Mother’s Day, directed by Garry Marshall. You’ll recall, Garry Marshall also directed Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. It’s almost like he doesn’t know that holidays are already schmaltzy. Full Story

I don’t really get Greta Gerwig. She’s not untalented, but she doesn’t really rock my face off, either. Yet people keep flipping out over her (Lainey: I used to flip over her), and I just want to ask—you’ve seen Chloe Sevigny, right? You do know that Chloe Sevigny exists? Because Greta Gerwig is basically Millennial Chloe Sevigny, which is not a bad thing to be, but let’s not pretend like it’s a whole new thing. Full Story
