Already part of New New Star Wars, Oscar Isaac is adding another huge franchise to his roster as he is joining X-Men: Apocalypse as the titular villain. Isaac’s been on the brink for a few years now, and it’s really feeling like he’s ready to make the leap and hit the mainstream in a big way. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston was at two screenings for Cake this weekend. On Friday it was with Variety followed by a cocktail party at the Sunset Tower. She wore pink and Justin Theroux was there. Last night there was another one with cinema prive and PANDORA Jewellery. She wore glasses and leather pants and, again, that great black jacket. Full Story

In a while… Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were in London last night at the premiere of Paddington. And the reviews I’ve read so far have been very positive. The Mirror called it the “finest family film ever made”. Kids who were at the screenings loved it, even though there was some controversy about its PG rating – click here Full Story

Zoolander 2 is so hot right now

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 21, 2014 17:08:52 November 21, 2014 17:08:52

Rumors of a Zoolander sequel have circulated off and on for years, but yesterday sh*t got real when Deadline published a report that Penelope Cruz has signed onto the movie, with Justin Theroux writing the script and Ben Stiller directing. Originally, Deadline said Theroux would direct, but his commitment to The Leftovers season 2 won’t leave him enough time, so Stiller is helming. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston showed up to the LA premiere of Horrible Bosses 2 last night in a white lace bustier. I think it might be one piece, along with the black skirt. Not spending any energy analysing it. Because I can’t stand to look at it. This is a terrible look. It’s an FHM girl look. Full Story

Chris Pratt was papped today while getting his car serviced looking pretty cute in sweatpants and his backpack. At one point he gave photographers a thumbs-up. And why not? It’s all thumbs-up for Chris Pratt. Chris Hemsworth clearly needed it more than he does so, no, Pratt is not the Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story

So while Jennifer Aniston’s trying to avoid a Norbit situation with Horrible Bosses 2 and Cake, Julianne Moore is out there selling The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 while holding the top spot for a Best Actress nomination for her work in Still Alice. Mockingjay is a sure thing. So Julianne will be able to ride on the fact that she’s part of a blockbuster and at the same time showing the voters that she’s one of the best, one of most under-appreciated, in one of her finest performances, maybe her finest performance. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston was at a special screening of Cake hosted by American Cinematheque yesterday in Hollywood. The Q&A was moderated by her Horrible Bosses 2 co-star Jason Bateman. Is it corny here to make a joke about having your cake and eating it too? I understand the strategy here. But last week I wrote about Aniston’s hopes for Cake and campaigning for it at the same time as promoting Horrible Bosses 2. Full Story

Pitch Perfect 2 – joy and nodes

The last time a group of comely young singers came together for a musical movie sequel about a choir; it was Sister Act 2 - a movie which, no joke, has informed my friendships, my wedding, my career. And which, it goes without saying, far surpassed the kick-ass-in-its-own-right original. There is nothing wrong with a surprise sequel to a choir movie. Full Story
