Jamie Dornan was in New York this weekend for a final promotional push before the release of Fifty Shades Of Grey this Friday. The studio has already greenlit the two sequels; they’re likely confident with their numbers predictions. I wonder though if they might want to talk to Dornan about his attitude when they get around to releasing the follow-ups, particularly his comments related to the sex. Full Story

Robert Pattinson was at the Berlin Film Festival yesterday promoting Life with Dane DeHaan. Am attaching shots from the premiere too but mostly want to focus on the pictures from the photo call because of Pattinson’s pants. He’s never worn pants better than he’s wearing them here, tucked into his boots, and no sign of mothering hips. Full Story

Let’s start with Captain Marvel. There’s a rumour floating around that Marvel is considering asking Angelina Jolie to direct Captain Marvel. Supposedly they’re impressed with her work on Unbroken and they want a female director bossing the female superhero movie. Which is exciting…but… The source. Full Story

Boyhood won the BAFTA last night. But on Saturday, the Directors Guild picked Birdman. The DGAs are considered a very, very, VERY good predictor of Oscar Best Picture; only 7 times in history have the DGA and the Academy picked differently. Even still, Boyhood has its share of support. So with a week to go before the voting period closes, it’s a legitimate race. Full Story

Yesterday at the BAFTAs Chris Evans and Henry Cavill presented Julianne Moore with the Best Actress award. Two handsome men of the superhero persuasion stood next to each other, and the internet collectively lost its sh*t. It’s understandable—they’re both really, really, really ridiculously good-looking, though Beardy Chris Evans is working the facial hair better than Cavill. Full Story

So here’s Chris Pratt today in Boston visiting the kids at Christopher’s House, supporting families with children who have cancer and are being treated at Mass General Hospital. Full Story

Here they come… And I didn’t even mean it that way, I swear. I just went back to read it and realised how it came off. My original point is that Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are now on the press circuit for Fifty Shades Of Grey. And, as you know, given that she’s only directed one other feature film before, usually the directors don’t get a lot of the attention on a promotional tour. Full Story

Duana taught me something I repeat often here on my blog. In her case, as a screenwriter, it’s about how the story and the audience relate, and how it’s the writer’s job to: Give them what they need, not what they want. I’ve been thinking a lot about this as we near the release of Fifty Shades Of Grey, reading reports of tension between the director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who’s admitted that she and author EL James struggled to agree on the creative direction of the film. Full Story

It was announced yesterday that Charlie Hunnam will replace Benedict Cumberbatch in The Lost City Of Z. Cumberbatch dropped out because he’s doing Dr Strange. Ummm…no problem here, not from where I’m sitting. That’s an upgrade. Charlie will play Col. Percival Fawcett. Full Story

Channing Tatum is going to come soon

They released the poster yesterday. And, well, I mean it’s about as subtle as a dick nudging you in the face. Channing Tatum is going to come, OK? Goddamn. Me too. Like, I was never into Magic Mike the first time. But…it’s this song… In the teaser trailer that’s now blowing up on Twitter. Full Story
