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

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

Page Six reports today that Johnny Depp is considering breaking up with his long-time agent Tracey Jacobs because all his movies suck and he’s “devastated” that they’ve not been well received. Supposedly he’s thinking about working with Rick Yorn who manages Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese, Reese Witherspoon, Scarjo, Justin Timberlake, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and more. Full Story

This Means War was on TV during the holidays. I watched the first half, with commercials. You know how some movies get better on television because you’re comfortable on the couch or in bed and your general sense of expectation is just a lot lower? Yeah, no. TV doesn’t make This Means War a better movie. Full Story

We’ve been talking about revisiting Ghostbusters in some form or another for years now. For a while it was going to be Ghostbusters III, potentially starring the aged version of the original cast. Then maybe it would be a sequel but with a younger cast, then a straight reboot. Last year it was announced that director Paul Feig would indeed be rebooting Ghostbusters, but with a twist—an all-female cast. Full Story

Fantastic Four looks surprisingly good

The thing that has always worried me about Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot is that it would just be Chronicle: Redux. And then a couple months ago I saw some rough footage and had a definite YIKES reaction, so my expectations, which weren’t high to begin with, plummeted even lower. I was having flashbacks to Roger Corman’s infamous 1994 Fantastic Four, made entirely so that a studio could keep character rights from reverting to Marvel Entertainment. Full Story

She was already halfway there. Some people just have that “living cartoon” look, like they were drawn by Disney animators then stumbled out of Cool World on accident. Emma Stone has that look and Tom Hiddleston too—he’s a live-action Disney prince if ever there was one. Emma Watson also looks like a live-action Disney character, and it’s now official as she’s been cast in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Full Story
