The teaser trailer for Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets was just released and it looks insane, in both the “cool” sense and the “divorced from reality” sense. This movie comes from Fifth Element director Luc Besson, and it looks of a piece with The Fifth Element—totally bonkers but cool in a fun weird way. Full Story

I like to say that I don't appreciate being emotionally manipulated by movies but I'm pretty sure I often get emotionally manipulated by movies and make that a point in posts about being emotionally manipulated by movies so...maybe I do actually enjoy being emotionally manipulated by movies? The emotions have been all over the place the last few days. Full Story

Brad Pitt at the Allied premiere in Hollywood last night, his first red carpet since Brange got broken. Sometimes I still can’t believe it, you know? Like I’ll wake up in the morning and take a shower and grab my sh-t and remind myself to pack my daily orange and I’ll get into the car and start driving to work and suddenly it’ll hit me: Brange is no more. Full Story
