That’s what Harrison Ford said to me when I interviewed him in a sling in 2008 in Cannes after breaking my arm: “So you clipped your wing.” He clipped his wing(s) too. Thanks God he’s expected to make a full recovery. Full Story

This happened in Paris about an hour ago. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked for Valentino. And THAT just made up for the blonde-ing. This PFW has been hijacked. PROPERLY. All of this in support of course of the upcoming Zoolander sequel. Because this appearance came with an announcement: February 2016. Full Story

In January, the cast of Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot/sequel/whatever was announced, and for the most part, everyone was excited about a lady ghostbusting squad. For the most part—there were some whiny diaper baby man-tears shed over women getting their period blood all over the uber-masculine (eye roll) cultural relic that is Ghostbusters. Full Story

Amal and George Clooney were out for dinner in New York this weekend. As you know, they’re in town because he’s shooting a movie there with Jodie Foster. Or you could say they’re in town because she’s now a visiting lecturer at Columbia’s Human Rights Institute. "It is an honour to be invited as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School alongside such a distinguished faculty and talented student pool. Full Story

Chris Evans in Playing It Cool review

Ugh, this f*cking movie. I have uncontrollable hatred for this movie. I hate it with the fire of a thousand suns. It’s the dumbest movie I’ve seen in recent memory—yes, even dumber than Hot Tub Time Machine 2.  At least that movie knows it’s dumb. Full Story

Gone Girl + Serial = Dark Places

The first trailer for Dark Places, an adaptation for Gillian Flynn’s second novel—she didn’t write the screenplay for this one, though—was released yesterday and it looks much darker and more true crime-y than Gone Girl. The story shuffles between the past, when Libby’s family was murdered and she was the sole survivor, and the present, where a group of self-appointed investigators are trying to prove that Libby misidentified her older brother as the killer. Full Story

In case you need a reminder, Independence Day 2 is actually happening and will be released in summer 2016. April/May is when the summer ’16 movies go into production, and to that end, Independence Day 2 is getting its ducks in a row, announcing some key casting. Relative unknown Jessie Usher will star as the grown-up version of Will Smith’s son from the first movie—Smith won’t be appearing in the sequel—and Liam, The Lesser Hemsworth will also star in a lead role. Full Story

I spent some time yesterday thinking about the Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio situation while hopped up on painkillers. I’m telling you, it was a mental workout. I got a lot done in my mind. Leo ended last week with a story about how he’s preparing to play Billy Milligan in The Crowded Room about the guy who had 24 personalities and used that defence in court. Full Story

The trend over the last several years has to been to depict Sherlock Holmes as a dashing young detective, thanks to the one-two punch of Robert Downey, Jr.’s Victorian-era rake and Bimblesnort Cupcake’s twenty-first century misanthrope. But director Bill Condon has a new iteration for us—an older one. Full Story
