Lately there’s been a surge in my Elvis obsession. When I was a teenager I used to obsess over pictures of Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis was SO strong in her face. It’s the eyes. Elvis had Gladys’s eyes (his mother) and Lisa Marie has those eyes. And Riley Keough has those eyes. Riley was at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere last night in Hollywood. Full Story
Remember the National Lampoon’s Vacation movies? You know, the two terrible ones no one talks about, and then the first one that most people like and the Christmas one that everyone likes? Well there’s a new one. Chevy Chase is still around as the patriarch of the perpetually doomed Griswold family, but now the role of “manically determined to have fun at all costs father” is being played by Ed Helms as the grown up Rusty Griswold.

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.

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.
