TIFF announced its first slate of films for this year’s festival September 4-14. It’s a big ass deal, not only because I live in Toronto and I work for etalk and we cover it top to bottom but because TIFF is where people come to kick off their campaigns. Full Story

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were on hand at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy last night to christen Pratt’s new career as a movie star. I’m not loving his suit. It’s boring, and the tie looks sloppy (needs pressing?), and his douche hair is too much. Chris Pratt is so cute! What is this look? Why is he fighting his hotness? Chris Evans is always fighting his hotness—I need one of the Chrises to just own his sh*t and show up looking great. Full Story

Now here’s someone who would never, ever trash-talk Leonardo DiCaprio. Or risk excommunication. Check out Bradley Cooper in a leather bomber at the Hollywood premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy last night. As Sarah’s been saying, his Rocket Raccoon almost steals the movie. His voice performance in the role is said to be outstanding. Full Story

In 2011 the Black List was topped by a script for a biopic of Alan Turing, the computer scientist who developed the early computer that the British used to break the German’s Enigma code. You might also recognize his name from the Turing Test, a series of questions meant to determine if a machine is capable of fooling a human interrogator into thinking it’s human. Full Story

Turn away if your eyeballs are a pristine, spoiler-free environment. We’re discussing potential Star Wars Episode VII plot details, so if you don’t want to know, go no further. It’s nothing particularly revelatory—it’s not like, “and then everyone at the wedding died” territory—but I know some people are special snowflakes who don’t like to know anything about a movie before they see it. Full Story

During the Maleficent press tour, when asked about her new collaboration with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie told Extra that: "It's not a big movie, it's not an action movie. It's the kind of movie we love, but aren't often cast in. Full Story

New York premiere of Magic In The Moonlight. Emma Stone showed up with her boyfriend Andrew Garfield. Of course her co-star Colin Firth was there too. Not a bad night, right? Many people thought Emma and Andrew would split as soon as they were done promoting Spider-Man, especially since…SPOILER ALERT… Her role in the franchise is done. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon modelled a very cute white laser cut two-piece yesterday while walking around LA. Speaking of Blake Lively, Reese too will soon be launching a lifestyle brand called Draper James. There will be retail stores. The first is expected to open next year…while she’s on an Oscar run? I posted about the first trailer for Wild – Hike, Pray, Love – last week. Full Story

Brad Pitt was seen at Marseilles airport yesterday on his own, without the Jolie or the kids. Possible reasons for travel: Stopping in to check on Chateau Miraval. Or, there’s some kind of art show happening and he’s heading there to look at some installations. Wearing his favourite t-shirt illustrated by one of his children. Full Story

Perfect casting

I didn’t think it could look any more twee than Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. But he’s been cast in a movie called Woman In Gold with Katie Holmes and apparently they’re a couple with kids and, sh-t, it’s like a life insurance commercial. Well done, casting director. Full Story
