Yesterday wasn’t just April Fool’s Day. It was also the day Vin Diesel’s hand and footprints were immortalised at the Chinese theatre, followed by the premiere of Furious 7. He’s the man! I don’t like this phrase. It’s so corny. Like you’re supposed to be delivering it with a goofy thumbs up. Full Story

Ryan Gosling stepped out in LA to meet some friends for lunch yesterday. In that outfit, with the facial hair, he looks like he’s been in a dark room for days. Is that a euphemism for dealing with an infant? Ryan’s directorial debut, Lost River, opens in a few days on April 10. It’s the only thing he tweets Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So about Going Clear which aired on HBO on Sunday… Haven’t written about it because I haven’t seen it. And I haven’t seen it because it didn’t air in Canada. Canadian distributors have decided instead to give the film a proper theatrical run starting on May 8th.  Read Full Intro

I know there are a few of you out there who are into James Marsden, but he doesn’t leave a lot of openings, as it were. So enjoy him, looking super hot in a douchebaggy way, in the new trailer for The D Train, a comedy with Jack Black that premiered earlier this year at Sundance. I prefer Black in uptight weirdo mode (see also: Bernie), and I’m also into the presence of Kathryn Hahn and Enlightened’s Mike White. Full Story

A new Mad Max: Fury Road trailer was released yesterday. Whoever is cutting these previews needs an award. Because they get better, and better, and better. And each one is different. With a different purpose. But gives away just enough to make you impatient and not too much to make you indifferent. Full Story

A new TV spot for Jurassic World has arrived and it’s teasing out more information about the new monstersaur on the block: Indominus Rex, the pants-sh*tting terror quaintly referred to as an “attraction” by the meat bags upon which it will soon be feasting. We’ve gotten a glimpse of Indominus already Full Story

Sometimes I just want to show you things. And we can think about it together. So Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy have been working on The Revenant. And they’ve grown closer, hanging out together off set, even in LA when they’re on break. Hey, look what a reader called Liz just emailed to me. Full Story

Tom Hardy makes a mug

If you already have a Tom Hardy problem, this isn’t going to help. This will make it much, much worse. Here he is on the cover of UK Esquire. Some dudes, when they do the squinty eye thing, it doesn’t work, not at all. You don’t believe it. Like if there was actually cigarette smoke drifting across their faces, they wouldn’t hot-squint, their eyes would just water and they’d swat it away. Full Story

A controversy about this movie erupted following its premiere at SXSW when a member of the audience at the post-screening Q&A told director Etan Cohen that the movie “seemed racist as f*ck”. In response, the filmmakers said that similar criticisms of the movie are “cheap” and “lazy journalism Full Story

Empire Awards in London yesterday. Christopher Nolan was honoured. Nolan’s the father of the Dark Knights. And produces the new films, Superman and the upcoming Batman vs Superman. So this is like showing up for the company president. On a side note that I just want to throw out there right now – I received an update recently from a Henry Cavill fan. Full Story

The first trailer for Spectre, the next installment in the James Bond franchise, arrived—oddly—on Friday evening, and it’s more of what we’ve come to expect from Daniel Craig’s stint as 007. Which is to say, it’s moody and dark and everything is gray and chilly. Full Story
