On Friday at Comic-Con, JJ Abrams took the stage along with LucasFilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and proceeded to blow the doors off the place. As promised, they did not show new footage, not exactly. Instead Abrams had a sizzle reel that had 6,500 hundred nerds weeping and screaming. Full Story

Emma Stone at the Irrational Man premiere in Hollywood last night. It opens in limited release next week. Reviews aren’t great. I mean they’re not terrible, but for the second summer in a row she’s in a Woody Allen movie and no one’s going to see it. What was that last one called? Midnight In The Moonlight? I don’t even care enough to google it. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence and her Hunger Games co-stars were on Conan last night at Comic-Con. As noted yesterday – click here for a refresher – Jennifer went to San Diego with her best sell game. This is the candid lovable goof with no filter who became one of the biggest movie stars in the world – and has an Oscar. Full Story

Will Saoirse Ronan break your heart in Brooklyn?

Duana Posted by Duana at July 10, 2015 17:37:16 July 10, 2015 17:37:16

One of the things I’m pretty sure is a universal experience of children of immigrants is you hear all of the stories of how it was, back home. How different it is here. And the same way Canadians have a running tally of all famous people who are Canadian and will tell you at the drop of a hat, any time there’s someone vaguely of your parents’ country of origin in the news or entertainment, you get a text or a call or a ‘have you read…?’ So I’m going to have to endure my mother’s smug ‘I TOLD you about Colm Toíbín’ because Saoirse Ronan is starring in Brooklyn based on his book and I might want to watch it over and over and over. Full Story

Check out Sienna Miller in a white jumpsuit at Wimbledon today for the men’s semi-final. You remember the other day when I was fighting for the right of the middle part? Sienna Miller in a middle part. Forever. Conveniently I was just namechecking Sienna in a post this morning. The Ben Affleck post – click here Full Story

The last time we saw the new Ghostbusters they were dressed in civilian clothes. Thanks to more on location filming this week, we now have photos of the whole team in their new ghostbusting suits. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon are in the familiar jumpsuits, but sporting a modified look with a seventies era style orange stripe. Full Story

Southpaw may look like a rental, but you should see it in theatres. Yes, it relies way too heavily on clichés, but seeing Jake Gyllenhaal transform into Billy Hope is worth the price of admission. It’s joy to see Rachel McAdams in this sexy, supportive part, too. But this is a role only Jake could play. Full Story

It’s so much fun to watch movie stars be movie stars. It’s electric. That’s the best way to describe what it felt like at the Southpaw premiere in Toronto last night with Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal. The biggest takeaway? Not only is the movie great, but after seeing them together in person… it’s clear their chemistry is real. Full Story

The plan, as I’ve been telling you all along, was to let Batman take over. To give the divorce gossip its due time before crushing it with work talk and superhero excitement. And now we’re seeing the rollout. Warner Bros announced yesterday that Ben Affleck will begin directing Live By Night in November. Full Story

The Mockingjay 2 panel just wrapped not too long ago at Comic-Con. The big 3 were all there – Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth. But, really, the story is Katniss. Always Katniss. Always JLaw. According to the tweets I’ve been reading, she really delivered for the fans. Full Story

Robert Pattinson is cold porridge

A while back a request came in for a career prospectus on Robert Pattinson, which was completely baffling because, despite being the human equivalent of a bowl of cold porridge—the English dude version of Oatmeal Amanda Seyfried, if you will—he’s working consistently and with very good filmmakers. Full Story
