Jeremy Renner has been in and out of London all year. Avengers: Age of Ultron filmed there over the spring and summer, and following that, he’s been there working on Mission: Impossible 5 – Presumably There’s A Bomb throughout fall and winter. Here he is once again at LAX over the weekend; not sure exactly where he’s coming from, but London is a logical guess. Full Story

After a long, rumor-filled casting process—easily a top-three roughest go round— Marvel has finally announced their Dr. Strange and it is, for real, Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s been rumored for years—I first mentioned it in 2012—but the timing never worked out, and Marvel would go look at other options, coming closest with Joaquin Phoenix a few months ago. Full Story

Check out George Clooney in costume on the set of Hail Caesar in LA yesterday. It’s a Coen Brothers movie. It’s about old Hollywood and a guy who did a lot of the dirty work back then to protect the stars when they f-cked up. I wonder if it’s based on a book I read last year called The Fixers: Eddie Mannix, Howard Strickling and the MGM Publicity Machine by E J Fleming because Josh Brolin, who’s apparently the lead in the film, is playing Eddie Mannix. Full Story

Terminator: Ridiculousity

The first trailer for the next Terminator is here, and it is some seriously silly sh*t. I refuse to deal with the movie’s real title, Terminator: Genisys, because it’s dumb, but it does seem to fit what looks like a highly stupid movie. There are ways to approach Terminator sequels that could be interesting and cool, but a pseudo-reboot of the first Terminator is not one of those ways. Full Story

I like Bond movies but I'm no Bond historian. Spectre, the title of Bond 24, just announced today, will mean something to Bond nerds though the way "alohomora" means something to Potterheads (me). For many, a Bond film is an Event. My best friend Fiona is big on Bond. She'll see it the first weekend. Full Story

Kind of. Rogen and his creative partner Evan Goldberg have finally gotten their pilot order from AMC for an adaptation of Preacher, a 1990s comic about a Texan preacher who is possessed by a heaven-baby and goes looking for God with his ex-girlfriend and a drunk vampire. It’s an interesting comic book, to say the least. Full Story

There’s been a discussion lately about the whitewashing of Exodus. Sarah posted about it here the other day. Exodus opens on December 12. Some are calling for a boycott. Why don’t we call it an alternative? Chris Rock’s Top Five opens wide on the same day. Full Story

“I think (Garrett’s) going to be a huge movie star. He reminds me of the very lovely Brad Pitt. He has this country, earthy grit about him, juxtaposed with this incredible sensitivity. It is a very sexy combination.” – Gwyneth Paltrow in VOGUE 2010 Full Story

Last we heard of David Ayer’s DC villain flick, whether or not Harley Quinn, the nutjob supervillainess from the Batman comics, would be included was still up in the air, and Jared Leto was in talks to play The Joker (lesser version 2.0). Yesterday, Warner Brothers announced the Suicide Squad lineup and yes indeed, Harley Quinn is coming to the big screen, and she’ll be played by Margot Robbie. Full Story

Blake Lively stepped out last night for the L’Oreal Paris Annual Women of Worth Awards in New York. She’s a spokesperson for the brand. Blake hasn’t said exactly when she’s due. But her film The Age Of Adaline opens in April. So she’ll have to get back to work to promote it pretty soon after giving birth. Full Story

You ever watch Oz? JK Simmons played Vern Schillinger. It took me a long time not to see him as Vern anymore. And I don’t. Now I don’t. Now I either see him as Juno’s dad or Miles Teller’s mentor adversary in Whiplash. For which he will probably, most likely, win an Oscar. The New York Film Critics Circle just named him Best Supporting Actor today. Full Story
