Euphemisms are part of the gossip game. They are the colorful sprinkles tossed over the delicious sundae of smut, and by now we should all know a few key words, like “exhaustion”. We all know what “exhaustion” means. And now it looks like we need to add “scheduling” to our lexicon, because Bruce Willis exited Woody Allen’s new movie, just days after he was seen filming, and the official version of this story blames his sudden departure on Willis’s schedule. Full Story

Would you hang out with Quentin Tarantino? Over a 4 hour dinner? I would. I would LOVE TO. Because, really, he has no filter. Sometimes he’s right. Sometimes he’s very, very wrong. (Like the entire Aaron Sorkin section.) Sometimes he’s sucking himself off. But he’s always talking. Full Story

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are a FANTASTIC screen couple, but people flat refuse to watch their movies. American Ultra reunites the Adventureland co-stars, and even though no one expected it to open at #1, as Straight Outta Compton continues to dominate, Ultra still disappointed with a $5.5 million Full Story

It always makes the internet happy when there are new photos of Tom Hardy with a dog. The internet is telling me that the world might need some happiness today because of the cash money crisis that’s happening over in China. Also, it’s been a while since we’ve had new pictures of Tom. Full Story

The Diary of a Teenage Girl is a film about discovery, and a big part of the joy in watching it is discovering things alongside the protagonist and narrator, Minnie (British actress Bel Powley, making a case for international stardom), a wildly charming lead who balances naiveté and precocity without ever dipping into cloying or pretentious. Full Story

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are working on Damien Chazelle’s La La Land. I think these are the first shots we’ve gotten of them in the same frame, so I’m attaching for you to look at, even though there’s nothing new to say. It’s a musical. They’ll be singing and dancing. Full Story

Salma Hayek has worked hard as a producer to get Lebanese philosopher Khalil Gibran’s seminal collection of poem-essays, The Prophet, to the big screen, and she’s finally succeeded, in the form of an animated film. The book, one of the most popular in the world, is a collection of parables on topics ranging from love and sorrow to work and clothes, and pretty much everything in between, but the movie only adapts eight of the twenty-six essays, clocking in at a lean eighty-four minutes. Full Story

Last Friday I showed up at the theatre for the Straight Outta Compton matinee. There were 13 year old girls lined up, in folding chairs, waiting. For what? Eazy-E? Turns out Zac Efron was showing up for the Toronto premiere later that night. So I’m curious about his movie, We Are Your Friends, and how it will do. Full Story
