Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Fassbender were in New York last night at the premiere of Frank. If you’re looking forward it because Fassbender makes you hard, heads up that he has a bag over his head the entire film. The star of Frank is Domhnall Gleason. One day I’m going to stop calling him Bill Weasley, I promise. Full Story

Did you ever see Ruby Sparks? Paul Dano writes Zoe Kazan to life. Sort of. And I’m in love with them in real life. Zoe was here in Toronto a couple of weeks ago with Daniel Radcliffe to promote The F Word (What If outside of Canada). I interviewed her on the red carpet, but not before I saw Paul rush by the press line. Full Story

Okay, as you may have gleaned from life and people who sing Rent on the subway, there are several tiers of musical theatre fans. Some who think they love musicals because they watched the VHS tape  of Annie, and another version who performed in Pippin growing up and will defend it to the death, and the third version is people who are into musicals you’ve never heard of and have reams of Broadway sheet music stuffed into drawers in their homes and understand the meaning of “recitative”. Full Story

It’s happened before—a critic doesn’t like the latest popular superhero movie and tanks its 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and fanboys flip out and say a bunch of totally over the top, inappropriate stuff in the comments section, embarrassing themselves and second-hand embarrassing nerds at large. Full Story

Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey were at Comic-Con this year to present the new trailer for Interstellar. It was a first time for both. Nolan’s one of those directors who doesn’t give anything away before a film’s release. Scripts are said to be hand delivered and actors supposedly have to read them while the person waits outside so that there are never any copies that can potentially be leaked. Full Story

Check out my #1, Oscar Isaac, at an event in New York earlier this week. Oscar’s been working on Star Wars VII. Before that he was shooting A Most Violent Year, scheduled for release in November, with some talk of possible award season inclusion. Yesterday it was announced that Oscar will star in the upcoming HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero based on the true story of Nick Wasicsko who was, in the late 80s, then the youngest mayor in America. Full Story
