A smiling Robert Pattinson was photographed in Toronto yesterday just as news broke that production on Idol’s Eye, his new film (with Robert De Niro, scheduled to start shooting this month), had been shut down because they couldn’t get the funding together. Pattinson will be fine. But it’ll suck for those below the line. Full Story

Writer/director JC Chandor is on a roll. First Margin Call, for which he was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar, and then the exceptional All Is Lost last year, and now he’s entering this year’s Oscar race with A Most Violent Year starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. The first trailer is out and it’s very promising, showing off Isaac and Chastain as well as David Oyelowo, and setting up a surprisingly moody crime drama. Full Story

Angelina Jolie. Vanity Fair. God. Those eyes. THAT FACE. The Jolie was photographed for the December issue by Mario Testino. This, of course, is for Unbroken, opening at Christmas and expected to contend for Oscar. They’ve been expecting it to contend for Oscar for a year now. Or, at the very least, a directing nomination for the new Mrs Pitt. Full Story

Natalie Dormer covers the December issue of FLARE. Dormer plays Cressida in Mockingjay: Part 1. You also know her as Margaery in Game Of Thrones. And you may have met her as Anne Boleyn in The Tudors. Or maybe you just love her look – she buzzed half her head for The Hunger Games. Full Story

This is the first shot of Eva Mendes since she gave birth to daughter Esmeralda on September 12. She looks exactly the same. And since we never saw her pregnant – not even one undeniable gratuitous pregnancy shot – it’s almost like it never happened, only TMZ found and released the birth certificate. Full Story

Whoa, Marco Polo—what’s up?

I’m in a TV rut. My DVR went kaput over the summer and when I got a new box, faced with reprogramming dozens of hours of TV, I found that I didn’t like hardly anything I’d been watching. So I ditched a bunch of shows and even still, until Justified comes back in 2015, I’m not really into anything. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon and the McConaughey model

First a reminder: Reese Witherspoon’s husband, Jim Toth, is Matthew McConaughey’s agent. Together, he and McConaughey engineered what’s now known as the McConaissance. Perhaps the same game plan is now in place for Reese. Like McConaughey, what Reese is offering is supposed to be a lot more varied and nuanced than what we saw in How To Legally Blonde A Guy In Ten Days. Full Story

There are a lot of cameos in Avengers: Age of Ultron. I don’t want to get yelled at for spoilers, so I’m not enumerating them here, but if you peruse nerd sites you can easily find out which ones have already been spoiled, and now you can add two more to the list. While giving an interview to the Telegraph, Idris Elba let it drop that he and Tom Hiddleston have cameos in Age of Ultron. Full Story

Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez were at LACMA together this weekend. Cara’s in a one shoulder cape with darker hair, likely for her upcoming role in Paper Towns which starts shooting right now. She might also be speaking in an American accent because of it. You can hear it in the video below of Cara and Selena speaking to a reporter at the event. Full Story

Hopeless hustle

On Saturday Deadline held “The Contenders” at the Directors Guild of America, a day-long symposium in which every distributor with Oscar hopes presented their award season wares, and many actors and filmmakers showed up to hustle. Most of the actors who showed up have outside chances at best, like newly-minted superhero Chadwick Boseman, who’s got a little buzz going for the James Brown biopic, Get On Up, and Shailene Woodley, who’s hoping to score a Best Actress nomination for The Fault In Our Stars. Full Story

Ryan Gosling cracked a smile yesterday on the set of The Nice Guys in Atlanta. He’s shooting the movie with Russell Crowe, seen here earlier in the week, looking as he always does – no nonsense. I’ve interviewed Crowe and he was lovely – at least to me – but I was terrified. Full Story
