Eva Mendes was photographed on Wednesday, just as news was breaking that she and Ryan Gosling are expecting a baby. As you can see, she was desperately trying to cover her body. Well, they’ve managed to keep this secret for 7 months, supposedly. They’re saying she just stayed in her house the whole time. Full Story

Anne Hathaway is currently shooting The Intern, the new Nancy Meyers movie. You know Nancy Meyers. It’s Complicated, Something’s Gotta Give, Father Of The Bride… What I like: Meyers writes for people over 45. What I’m not that into: Meyers’s films are like the Williams-Sonoma of movies. Full Story

The first trailer for Wild, adapted from Cheryl Strayed’s bestseller, has been released, starring Reese Witherspoon. As I wrote a couple of months ago, they’re scheduling this film for Oscar ambitions. Reese wants #2.

The first trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings was released yesterday. Or Gladiator 2 by Ridley Scott. Christian Bale stars as Moses. Joel Edgerton is Ramses. They were brothers. Now they’re adversaries. God’s picking sides. Or you could say Moses is Jon Snow. Except Robb Stark didn’t grow up to hate him. Full Story

Last night Marvel offered a seventeen minute sneak peek of Guardians of the Galaxy in IMAX 3D. They screened the prison break/riot scene featured in the trailers, plus sizzle reels of new footage. It was a good choice to get people hooked—the prison scene is really funny with great action, and it very neatly lays out who these people are, what they want, and why they band together. Full Story

Gone Girl: the event

A new full length trailer for Gone Girl was released today. It was preceded by a series of posters put out over the weekend advertising not the film…but the preview. So that’s the marketing strategy for the film: they’re treating it as a theatrical event, a MEGA motion picture release, a MUST SEE MOVIE – not in the summer, but in the fall. Full Story

The first trailer for Before I Go To Sleep, starring Nicole Kid man and Colin Firth, was released yesterday. As many others have observed, it’s Memento meets Fifty First Dates.

The trailer for Behaving Badly starring Selena Gomez came out yesterday. It’s a teen movie. I had to watch it. It met my expectations. Looks terrible. What surprised me was… Mary-Louise Parker. The f-ck is MLP doing in this movie? We all feel the same about MLP, right? Like, love. Full Story

Anne Hathaway stepped out in New York today with her husband, half her hair scraped back in a half ponytail. It’s long enough now. She’s been wearing a long hair wig on the set of The Intern. I totally forgot what her face looks like when it’s being framed. So different. And younger I think? She can do both, easily. Full Story
