The Age of Ultron is here

Sarah Posted by Sarah at October 23, 2014 14:39:39 October 23, 2014 14:39:39

The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron wasn’t supposed to debut until Tuesday during an episode of Agents of SHIELD, but it leaked online yesterday, no doubt thanks to Hydra. And since fighting the internet is pointless, Marvel went ahead and threw it up on YouTube for all of us to enjoy. Full Story

Bradley Pitts Between Two Ferns

Brad Pitt really wants you to see Fury. The small details are what get me initially. Like how they Scotch tape the microphones on this show. It’s a slow build. The first two minutes aren’t all that exciting. But then. Zach Galifianakis goes for it. I mean, sure, it’s not hard to go for it when both of you are in on it. Full Story

I just read an interview at the New York Times with Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, and Anne Hathaway. They’re promoting Interstellar. As you’d expect, McConaughey manages to drop the “Prime Mover” into the discussion again. Naturally. Nothing super gossipy here, just a few interesting observations. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey received the American Cinematheque Award last night in Hollywood and it was a strong turnout. The timing is great too. Not only because he’s winning everything (but the Emmy), but also because Interstellar comes out soon, one of most highly anticipated films of the year. Of over a year. Full Story

Check out Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of the Hollow Crown yesterday in England. As you know, I don’t crank for Cumberbatch. But I’ll say here that I don’t mind him in cape and dressed in royal robes. Maybe because, back then, people from royal lineage were all sleeping with their uncles and cousins. Full Story

CIFF Review: Dear White People

Sarah Posted by Sarah at October 22, 2014 15:03:51 October 22, 2014 15:03:51

Dear White People was one of my Sundance picks way back in January, and man did it live up to the hype. The feature film debut of writer/director Justin Simien, Dear White People follows a group of students at a Harvard-esque Ivy League school, the fictional Winchester, as they struggle with their identities. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence also attended the Elle Women in Hollywood event last night wearing a white Oscar De La Renta cocktail dress. That’s two white swan songs for the fashion legend – the bride of the year, Amal Clooney, and the most popular, most acclaimed young actress in Hollywood. Salute. Full Story

Jennifer Garner spoke last night at the ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards. Just Jared has posted video of it – click here to see. Interestingly enough there have been tabloid rumours about Ben Affleck and Emily Ratajkowski from Gone Girl hooking up, presumably because he’s him and she’s hot and his character whimpered into her breasts in a scene from the movie – and Jennifer mentions her in her remarks…but NOT by name, just by referring to her as “the tits on the Blurred Lines girl”. Full Story

Always. Always sharp when it comes to Eddie Redmayne. Here he is with fiancée Hannah Bagshawe in New York last night at the premiere of The Theory Of Everything for which, right now, he’s looking pretty good for a Best Actor nomination. I keep telling you he deserves it. And when you see the film on November 7th, you’ll understand. Full Story

Marvel is still looking for Dr Strange because it definitely won’t be Joaquin Phoenix. His publicist released a statement the other day confirming that negotiations are “dead, dead, dead. A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival”. Full Story
