Kevin Hart’s The Wedding Ringer was supposed to open big – it would have been his fourth #1 but as it stands, American Sniper is exceeding expectations and Paddington is being bolstered by fantastic reviews (like Sarah’s here). So Kevin has to settle for a slim #2 which, if you’ve been following Kevin Hart, is not what he wants. Full Story

Marion Cotillard was in the States for a couple of weeks and some thought she’d be done with award season after Critics Choice. But we now know she’ll be back…because last Thursday, the Oscars invited her to the Best Actress party. It’s important to note how much respect she has within the Academy too to have been nominated (again) because her role in Two Days, One Night is in French (again), her second nomination for a non-English role. Full Story

With production set to begin in London in April on The Huntsman, Universal is trying to get all their ducks in a row. I say “trying” because it doesn’t seem to be going well. Snow White and the Huntsman was a modest hit in 2012, just eking out enough to make the bean counters think a follow-up could be profitable, but that would largely depend on controlling costs and not spending $500 million to put the thing in theaters. Full Story

Elizabeth Olsen was papped the other day grocery shopping and not wearing her engagement ring. US Weekly then followed with confirmation from sources yesterday that she and Boyd Holbrook have ended their relationship. I swear, I was just thinking on the weekend while watching The Skeleton Twins, about how hot he is. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston: The Snubbed Tour

Jennifer Aniston was not nominated for an Oscar last week. And there was a junket scheduled right afterwards for her to promote Cake. Like a true professional, she went ahead with her press obligations and did not get the chicken pox. (Oh come on, Brangelunatics. It was the easy, cheap joke.) So now we’ve turned this into the Snubbed Tour. Full Story

Johnny Depp was in Berlin this weekend for Mortdecai. So far there hasn’t been a carpet in North America. But Johnny’s like Tom Cruise now. Audiences are much more supportive of him overseas. So far there haven’t been any reviews. Mortdecai opens on Friday. The movie is a January release and no critic comments posted yet? Not usually a good sign. Full Story

She’s on American Idol. She’s promoting American Idol at the TCAs (in a red skirt). She’s on morning television because The Boy Next Door is coming out on Friday. The reviews have been horrible. GOOD! For those of us who are eagerly waiting for Friday to see it, we didn’t expect it to be quality filmmaking anyway. Full Story

Paddington review

Whoever did the US marketing for Paddington ought to be flogged. They did this movie dirty, cutting terrible trailers that made the movie look hokey and trite and Paddington himself a demonic hellbeast unleashed from our nightmares. But in reality, Paddington, and adaptation of the popular Paddington the Bear children’s books, is a charming, sweet, lovely film. Full Story

As mentioned earlier, it was a big weekend for American Sniper, Bradley Cooper, and Clint Eastwood. Sienna Miller gets to enjoy that too, right? We’ve talked about what a ride she’s had the last year or so. And now, being part of a film that just turned this into a legitimate race… it’s good for her. Full Story

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes stepped out together this weekend to see Don Rickles perform in Beverly Hills. We’ve not seen them papped together as a couple in a long time. So, despite rumours every 2 months, he’s still with her and she’s still with him. And I love that he decided to kick it on their night out, a break from the baby, in a pair of white shoes. Full Story
