Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon in Hot Pursuit

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 11, 2015 19:18:50 May 11, 2015 19:18:50

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a monkey threw sh*t on a piece of paper and then people tried to make a movie based on that sh*tty paper? Well wonder no more, for that movie has been made! Hot Pursuit is a movie so unutterably terrible it defies explanation, unless that explanation is “made with monkey sh*t”. Full Story

That title, without the question mark, was the original. But then I remembered that Amal Clooney was actually at one of the Monuments Men premieres, although at that point, she and George hadn’t made their declaration yet. So while they’ve walked several carpets together, this can be considered the first time they’ve walked a carpet together for one of his movie openings. Full Story

The cast of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was in Rome this weekend to promote the film. The movie comes out in August. I am obsessed with Alicia Vikander’s dress. Also her tan. Anyway, as you can see, U.N.C.L.E.’s two leads, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, are working matching beards right now. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Universal announced yesterday that By The Sea, written and directed by Angelina Jolie, starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, will be released November 13. November is definitely not January. Or February. November is an award season sweet spot.  Read Full Intro

Tom Hardy at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere last night. Yeah. He looked hot. Intense, as always, which is part of it, I think. It’s not like you’re always citing his smile as his best feature. So Tom Hardy is the new Mad Max. The original Mad Max, as you know, is Mel Gibson who made a surprise appearance and they posed together with director George Miller. Full Story

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

Chris Hemsworth’s Vacation dick

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 8, 2015 15:59:43 May 8, 2015 15:59:43

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. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

A trailer for the upcoming Ricki and The Flash was released yesterday starring Meryl Streep as a rock star. Which basically means Meryl Streep will be nominated for more. And she totally should be. As usual, she’s amazing. But so is Audra McDonald. And that’s another bonus. Another? Written by Diablo Cody. Oh and… Rick Springfield. Ha.

It’s a little…what’s the word?... schmaltzy, for sure. But Meryl’s got what looks like an American flag tattooed on her back. I feel like that might make up for the schmaltz. The movie comes out August 7th which hasn’t traditionally been the strongest month for releases. But in recent years, we’ve seen some winners emerging from August. So let’s not yet hold August against Ricki. The hair-combs at the back of her head on the other hand…

Now those can stay in the 80s.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Get hard for Gwendoline Christie in Star Wars

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 7, 2015 19:18:50 May 7, 2015 19:18:50

If you still need a reason to get on board with New New Star Wars, let it be Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie as the villain, Captain Phasma. As part of their Star Wars edition, Vanity Fair is still rolling out new information on Episode VII—I still can’t bring myself to call it The Force Awakens. Full Story

US Weekly reports exclusively that Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston have been hooking up. It’s an Avengers romance! It’s a Marvel love connection! Only it wasn’t when they were playing superheroes. Hiddleston and Olsen worked together on the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light. Full Story

Joss Whedon quits Twitter, world implodes

On Monday, Joss Whedon quit Twitter. I assumed it was because with Avengers: Age of Ultron open in all the theaters everywhere, he was finally done promoting it and so he deleted his Twitter page, which was started two years ago to promote a movie. 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. Full Story
