If you still need a reason to get on board with New New Star Wars, let it be Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie as the villain, Captain Phasma. As part of their Star Wars edition, Vanity Fair is still rolling out new information on Episode VII—I still can’t bring myself to call it The Force Awakens. Full Story

US Weekly reports exclusively that Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston have been hooking up. It’s an Avengers romance! It’s a Marvel love connection! Only it wasn’t when they were playing superheroes. Hiddleston and Olsen worked together on the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light. Full Story

On Monday, Joss Whedon quit Twitter. I assumed it was because with Avengers: Age of Ultron open in all the theaters everywhere, he was finally done promoting it and so he deleted his Twitter page, which was started two years ago to promote a movie. I didn’t think much of it at first, but by the end of the day the internet was going nuts, saying that Whedon didn’t quit, he was run out of electrical town on rails by a horde of rage-feminists who were mad at him for something about the Black Widow. Full Story

Yesterday Marvel announced yet another person to add to the pile of people already appearing in Captain America: Civil War, and it’s Sherlock star Martin Freeman in an undisclosed role. Everyone’s making dog pile jokes and wondering how there could possibly be any time for Captain America with so many co-stars, but let’s be real. Full Story

I’ve always said Jeremy Renner is good for gossip, and he is certainly giving us something to talk about recently. The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour was famously peppy, and during an interview Renner and Chris Evans stepped in a pile of internet dog sh*t when they called Black Widow a “slut Full Story

Oh boy does Russell Crowe’s directorial debut ever put the “vanity” in “vanity project”. I cannot imagine a vainer self-directed project, and I say this knowing full well that Chris Evans also has a vanity project coming out this year. Crowe marks his directorial debut with The Water Diviner, in which he also stars, a historical epic about an Australian man who lost his whole family in World War I and then travels to post-Ottoman Turkey to try and find his dead sons and take them back to Australia for burial. Full Story

Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown It’s from a different Shakespeare play but I’ve always been fascinated by this quote. And I wonder if it’s still true. Because the power now is in the money. And, well, Rupert Murdoch may have had a few sleepless nights here and there but, come on, do you really doubt that he sleeps well? Anyway, the quote. Full Story

If it weren’t for the leading trio of Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne, and Bobby Cannavale, Adult Beginners would be a failed pilot at a broadcast network. There’s nothing new or even particularly engaging about it, but those three manage to make it watchable. The story revolves around Jake (Kroll), who returns home with his tail tucked between his legs after a tech venture crashes and burns, obliterating his and everyone he knows’ money. Full Story
