Subtitle: “I sat through this so you don’t have to”. About fifteen minutes into Tak3n—surely the year’s stupidest title—I desperately wanted to walk out. But I don’t walk out of movies on principal, so I white-knuckled it through one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a while, which is saying something because sometimes I seek out bad movies Full Story

Chris Hemsworth was in New York this morning on promotional duty for the upcoming Blackhat, opening this weekend. It’s about cybercrime. That’s a selling feature, considering what’s happened in Hollywood recently. Another selling feature: he’s the current Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story

Marvel released the second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron last night and they are doubling down on the creepy renditions of “I’ve Go No Strings”. Put that free Disney songbook to work, dude, but now I will forever be creeped out by Pinocchio. Not that a sentient talking puppet that’s obsessed with other people’s humanity wasn’t already creepy. Full Story

Art of Elysium gala on Saturday. Amber Heard was accepting an award and Johnny Depp came to support her. They made a point of proving to you that they’re not breaking up and not experiencing problems in their relationship by kissing each other with open mouths. Um, OK Johnny, I believe you. Especially when you walk the entire length of the carpet with your “extra tough, I’m a badass” face on. Full Story

Safe to say now that Boyhood is the clear Best Picture frontrunner for the Oscars now, right? The Globes don’t necessarily accurately predict Oscars. But they certainly can influence Academy members to pay more attention to the films and actors that they honour. So Ethan Hawke is most definitely going to the Oscars. Full Story

Oprah looked great and glam, like she always looks great and glam. I appreciate fully that she is at the point now, not unlike Meryl, where she’s like ‘you know what, I’m not messing with my look anymore. We do what works’. I do wish, though, that we’d been able to look at someone else. Full Story

It’s been, what?, about a month now since we last saw them on a carpet together, right? Was it the world premiere of Unbroken in Australia? When Unbroken’s Oscar chances looked a lot better? Before the Sony hack, before the chicken pox… Here they are, Angelina Jolie, fresh from meeting the Pope, and Brad Pitt today in LA at the AFI Awards. Full Story

Earlier this week I got a document in my email listing projected release dates for trailers, and I noticed that Superhero Face Punch had a projected February trailer date. I thought that was a bit odd since its release, March 25, 2016, is more than a year away. But today a screenshot purported to be from the first trailer surfaced on Reddit, and it shows the film has been split into two parts: Superhero Face Punch Part I: First Punch will come out on October 23, 2015 and Superhero Face Punch Part II: The Punchening will stick with the March 25, 2016 date. Full Story
