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

Today is Women’s Equality Day in the United States, marking the 95th anniversary of the 19th amendment to the US constitution, confirming women’s right to vote. So it makes sense that a new poster for Suffragette has just been released via EW.com Full Story

In incredibly meaningless and frivolous news today, the internet’s pretend best friends, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence, are writing a movie together. Make no mistake, their friendship is real, as JLaw says they were “creatively made for each other” and that writing a screenplay with Schumer has been the “most fun experience” of her life. Full Story
