Angelina Jolie showed up for the Universal presentation at Cinemacon in Las Vegas yesterday. So, basically, the studio is putting their Oscar campaign for Unbroken right up front, and obviously. Yes, of course, it’s important that theatre owners feel confident in the film in that it can make money. Full Story

You love your job. You get to travel the world talking about your job. You are Spider-Man after all. And… bonus! You’re in love and your girlfriend is doing her job right beside you. One of the most energetic party people in Hollywood is along for the ride too. Life can’t really suck, right? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 press tour looks like it doesn’t suck at all, especially not for Andrew Garfield who might actually be my most favourite famous person right now. Full Story

Chris Evans has a fancy Variety profile in advance of Captain America: The Winter Soldier opening in the US next week (have I mentioned today that it’s really good?). The headline is that he’s going to leave acting and pursue directing, full-time, once his Marvel contract is done (he has three pictures remaining on his deal). Full Story

Are Autobots and Decepticons robots or aliens? I can see Sarah palming her face. This is a real question I just asked backstage at The Social and there were some eyerolls. The answer is that Transformers are a “robot alien race”. FINE. Anyway, the 4th Transformers movie was the major feature at the Paramount Cinemacon presentation. Full Story

Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, went out for dinner last night in LA with his girlfriend. Meanwhile, his best friend Leonardo DiCaprio is in St Barts. He was seen there on Sunday with several friends and Toni Garrn, who is not pictured in this photo set. How come Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, wasn’t invited? Maybe it was a scheduling issue. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson was with the cast of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in China yesterday. That’s a pretty prominent v-neck on Chris Evans, non? Here’s how I see the v-neck: it can’t go with big arms. You have to choose one. Go with a v-neck if your arms aren’t stretching to hulk the sh-t out of your shirt. Full Story

Sarah’s probably mad at me that I called this article because I’m sure there are all kinds of nerdy details in these photos from the Aosta set of Avengers: Age Of Ultron that she could be pointing out but …this post isn’t about comic book movies. Joss Whedon is there, of course, because he did the best job of the first movie but also Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Elisabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence’s fingers and hands

Jennifer Lawrence had an Oscar in her hand once, at the Oscars proper, when she gave the finger to a room full of reporters. You remember that? Like, if you have to give the finger, you might as well give it there, non? And then every other finger seems kind of underwhelming. Full Story

Live action Jem? Really?

Jem. Jem is excitement. Jem is adventure. Glamour, glitter, fashion, fame. Check, check, check, check. Jem was by far the favored game to play at recess when I was a kid, mainly because there were awesome songs to sing approximately every five minutes. I favoured “Hey Babe” myself, but I know you’re supposed to say “Twilight in Paris” is your favourite. Full Story

Muppets Most Wanted opens today. So far the reviews are pretty decent, tracking at 77% at Rotten Tomatoes at post time. Can you go wrong with Piggy, the greatest international superstar in the world? Please, Piggy, please stop reading now. Of the reviews I have read however, some are saying that the energy that’s missing from this movie is Jason Segel. Full Story
