The Johnny Depp Makeover

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 22, 2015 14:12:53 April 22, 2015 14:12:53

Stories about Johnny Depp haven’t been so positive lately. His last few films have been sh-t. He hurt his hand while in Australia shooting Pirates 5, but not actually when he was shooting Pirates 5. And there are a lot of rumours about how it actually happened, where it happened, his state of mind when it went down. Full Story

All the Avengers showed up tonight at the UK premiere. They’ve been dividing press duties by territory but this market required full superhero participation. Full participation means Tony Stark has to show up. So here he is, Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr… How do you feel about his lighter hair? I like it. Full Story

Yesterday Chris Hemsworth was in England shooting The Huntsman, the sequel or prequel to Snow White And The Huntsman. Also on set: Jessica Chastain. I’m really into seeing her in costume. I’ll be really into seeing her go bitch for bitch with Charlize Theron too. Tonight Hemsworth switched characters. Full Story

Film Review: Unfriended

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 21, 2015 18:51:11 April 21, 2015 18:51:11

Earlier this month Lainey said she thought Unfriended might be a sleeper hit. I wasn’t quite as enthusiastic—though it did well enough, it didn’t have the kind of opening weekend that suggests it’ll stick around for long. I told Lainey the ceiling for Unfriended would be its lack of appeal to adult audiences, and sure enough, 74% of Unfriended’s audience was under 25. Full Story

Her most famous friend being Jennifer Aniston, who came to support her last night at the premiere of Just Before I Go. Courteney directed the movie. Jen’s been quiet for a couple of months since the Oscars and her relentless campaign for a nomination during award season. This is her first major appearance since then. Full Story

What time is it in New York right now (as I’m writing this)? 11:54am Blake Lively is on the morning circuit to promote The Age Of Adaline. She’s changed… I don’t know…. I’ve lost count how many times. It’s a lot of times. My least favourite is the pink and black wrap dress. Full Story

Tomorrowland is Home Alone with robots?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 21, 2015 16:20:27 April 21, 2015 16:20:27

I’d be totally okay with that. The onslaught of “please put this in front of the Avengers” trailers continues today with a new trailer from Tomorrowland, George Clooney’s sci-fi adventure that is (disappointingly) also not a biopic of Walt Disney. This project, written and directed by Brad Bird, has been mystery-boxed, but this trailer gives us a fair look at the action and tone of the movie, even though I’m still a little dim on the plot. Full Story

Both Tom Hardy and Nicholas Hoult were photographed arriving in Vegas yesterday ahead of CinemaCon. So they're presumably there for Mad Max: Fury Road, opening in less than a month. CinemaCon is where they give out random awards. Like the Star Of Tomorrow award. Previous winners include Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer. Full Story

John Travolta is currently promoting a movie called The Forger. He was in New York yesterday promoting the film on Good Morning America and Letterman. During the interview with GMA, he was asked about HBO’s Going Clear. I’ve embedded the video below. John is asked to explain why his Church is such a target, why people are so critical of it. Full Story

After all kinds of speculation about where he’s been the last month (click here for my post from yesterday), Johnny Depp returned to Australia today on a private jet with Amber Heard. Photographers were there to document the arrival, which was more like a show. Full Story
