A trailer for Legend has been released. Tom Hardy plays real life gangster twins Reggie and Ronnie Kray. The film is due in September and will likely be yet another showcase of Hardy’s talent since it’s a double performance. At least that’s what they’ll say. Right now though, from this preview, the idea I’m getting is that one brother smolders and the other brother scowls. Full Story

Emma Stone was photographed leaving her stylist’s yesterday with several bags, one of them with “Andrew Garfield” written on it. So… Maybe not broken up after all? Petra Flannery works with both Emma and Andrew. And Andrew is currently still shooting Scorsese’s Silence in Taiwan, although that’s supposed to be wrapping up soon. Full Story

Confession: I almost fell asleep in this movie. Which is, I think, the clearest review I can give it. Starring Jonah Hill and James Franco, True Story is based on the true story (GET IT?) of Michael Finkel, a disgraced journalist who discovers that an accused murderer, Christian Longo, was using his identity while on the lam. Full Story

Does Hawkeye’s goofy song make up for anything?

The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour is winding down as the movie hits theaters tomorrow evening, but there are still a few Avengers out making the final push for a movie that really does not need a final push. After last week’s super peppy press tour derailment, this week has seen (mostly) better behavior from the cast. Full Story

Batfleck & Suicide Squad

Ben Affleck was photographed in Toronto yesterday on the set of Suicide Squad. Nerd Assumption then is that Batman will be making at least a cameo in the movie. Is Ben Affleck Batman to Suicide Squad what RDJ Iron Man is to the Avengers? I’m too much of a geek neophyte to know whether or not that’s an apt analogy but for those of us who don’t have a PhD in comic books, I could be into this…especially since the Avengers seem to be behaving like Lannisters right now. Full Story

There’s a piece up today at The Daily Beast about Black Widow and the “problem” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that she—a strong, capable character in her own right—keeps being used in service of the male heroes. I don’t disagree that there is a problem in the MCU, but it isn’t specifically with Natasha Romanov. Full Story

My final blog post yesterday was about Zac Efron on the set of his new movie, doing push-ups. No big deal. Just a guy who drops down and gives you 10, spontaneously, whatever. Check him out today, walking to set, and f-ck, he didn’t have time to close his jacket because he’s so focused on getting in character, getting into position. Full Story

Tom Brady must have lost a bet to Seth MacFarlane

Back in 2012, I quite liked Ted, Seth MacFarlane’s talking teddy bear movie starring Mark Wahlberg. It hit the right balance between MacFarlane’s raunchy sense of humor and actually having a heart under the R-rated jokes and the teddy bear gimmick. So I’m holding out hope that the latest trailer for Ted 2, which is a red band, is just a bad trailer, and not indicative of the movie as a whole, because this trailer is BAD. Full Story

Spontaneous push-ups

Zac Efron is in Georgia working on a movie called Dirty Grandpa. He was photographed on set today. In between scenes, he appears to be dropping down for a set of push-ups. I mean, good for him, you know? Maximise every minute. It can be boring, sitting around in your trailer all day, waiting for them to set up the lights and block the shots. Full Story

If you were a Disney/Marvel publicist, last week probably wasn’t great. Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans were sexist (click here for a refresher). Robert Downey Jr walked out of an interview (click here Full Story
