Premiere of Jupiter Ascending last night. Reviews haven’t been great. BUT some noteworthy critics have given it some love. Like Hitfix’s Drew McWeeny who called it a “wicked slice of entertainment”. Alonso Duralde over at The Wrap Full Story

A new trailer for Jurassic World aired during the Super Bowl, increasing its odds of being one of the biggest movies of the year, and it has some new stuff to show us. The trailer jumps right in with Sea World-style patter to introduce the Mosasaurus. I love this set up—the forced gaiety of the announcer’s voice contrasted with the Mosasaurus devouring a shark cracks me up. Full Story

Answer: We still don’t really know. The first trailer was not informative, and while the Super Bowl TV spot includes new footage, it is still not telling me anything about this movie beyond that it looks cool. I really dig the effect of the girl touching the little T-thingie and the world altering around her in a split second. Full Story

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan cover the new issue of GLAMOUR in advance of the release of Fifty Shades Of Grey. He looks so much better with facial hair. And, as you know, the Christian Grey character, the way it’s being represented in the film, does not have any facial hair. A new trailer for the movie is now available with more sex angles. Full Story

Russell Crowe presented at the AACTA Awards via satellite since he’s working on The Nice Guys in LA with Ryan Gosling. Gosling decided to “crash” and the two ended up teasing each other. Russell called Ryan out for being a shirtless plush toy. Ryan gave it to Russell about the honourary Australian thing. Full Story

Ted 2 exists

Seth MacFarlane is such an up-and-down guy. Family Guy, not so great, but American Dad is consistently funny. Ted was surprisingly funny in 2012, but last year’s A Million Ways to Die in the West was bereft of humor, wit, and/or charm. He’s a douche in real life, but he can be entertaining on stage (not at the Oscars, though). Full Story

Joss Whedon wants out of the superhero boys’ club

After The Avengers became the third-highest grossing film in modern cinema in 2012, Marvel handed him a bag of money and the gig directing the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, approaching the release of Ultron and probably also the end of his tenure at Marvel, Whedon sounds more than ready to go. Full Story

After a very public, turbulent pre-production phase, the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin—disappointingly titled Steve Jobs and not Computer Jesus—is officially underway and shooting around San Francisco. After being plagued by casting problems ranging from a leading Full Story

A wild rare Winona Ryder appears. She's promoting Experimenter at Sundance, alongside Peter Sarsgaard and Kellan Lutz Wearing Glasses—Kellan Lutz Wearing Glasses is the new Kellan Lutz In A Tree. Anyway, back to the only one who matters, Winona. She's beautiful and That Face and Experimenter is getting good reviews, which is most pleasing. Full Story

Many of us noticed during the Golden Globes that Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are not only awesome ladies on their own, but they’re especially awesome together. Longtime friends and sometimes collaborators, they’re like the proto-version of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Well they’re at Sundance this week, where Tomlin is promoting Grandma, and they appeared together at the Women In Film brunch, an event so popular people were turned away like it was one of the A-list movie premieres. Full Story
