TIFF 2014 opens tomorrow. Sarah’s preview for the festival will be posted shortly as an advance overview of the entire event. But the gala on Thursday night belongs to The Judge. Robert Downey Jr, the biggest movie star in the world, is opening TIFF. Shinan Govani wrote a piece for The Globe & Mail yesterday featuring RDJ and how, ten years ago, it would have been unlikely that he would be the guy, the guy coming to Toronto, as the prime time steak. Full Story

In the previous post, we discussed our different flavour preferences. Cumberbatch or The Riot Club. Robert Pattinson or Liam Hemsworth. The only way to move forward is to agree to disagree. But isn’t there someone we can ALL agree on? Who is the Universal? The undeniable. Pan. Full Story

The summer box office sucked

Sarah Posted by Sarah at September 3, 2014 14:16:00 September 3, 2014 14:16:00

The summer box office, which was trending downward all season, officially blew chunks. Receipts were down 22.2% from last year, making this the worst summer movie season since 2005 (all numbers are for domestic box office, which is the case throughout, unless denoted otherwise). Full Story

Lainey texted me over the weekend about how she’s excited to see The Riot Club, a movie about secret societies at Oxford (it’s playing TIFF later this week). I’m into it for Natalie Dormer, but Lainey’s all over it because of the gaggle of British boys who star in it. While we agree on a few exceptions—Aaron Taylor-Johnson, for instance, though he’s hottest when he’s around Sam—Lainey likes boys and I like men. Full Story

I posted photos today of Will Ferrell and Luke Wilson Old School in the site intro today and someone yelled at me for not mentioning Timothy Olyphant. Fair enough. Timothy Olyphant was also at the US Open this weekend. And we should be seeing him at TIFF for This Is Where I Leave You. Everyone I know who’s seen it so far says it’s terrific. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and her kids are now in Gozo, Malta. (All the pap agencies are heading there now. Yay for Tourism Malta!) They were photographed today in a boat where Brad Pitt is expected to join them so that they can begin their working honeymoon, shooting a new film that the Jolie wrote called By The Sea. Full Story

Cara Delevingne was hanging out in New York yesterday. Next week? She’ll be in Toronto. She’s in a film called The Face Of An Angel screening at TIFF. Festival Cara. Film festivals are about movies, of course. And red carpets, always. And…the parties. As we’ve seen, this girl knows how to party. Full Story

Andrew Garfield, Forever Child

Sarah Posted by Sarah at August 28, 2014 16:28:54 August 28, 2014 16:28:54

Do you buy Andrew Garfield as an adult? I don’t know that I do. He’s 31 years old, I know that academically, but I don’t think I really know that. Because when I see Garfield, I don’t think “grown ass man”. He’s a Forever Child, which is why it’s totally believable for him to be playing Peter Parker in the Spider-Man movies—he looks like he should still be in college. Full Story

Someone sent me an email yesterday after seeing Emma Stone at the Venice Film Festival gala premiere of Birdman expressing disappointment about the dress. I was confused. This dress, to me, on her, isn’t disappointing at all. This is such a gorgeously rich dark green. It’s stunning against her skin, her hair. Full Story

Best day ever. Brange is married. Drama at the Beygency. And James McAvoy photos! We just need Hot Prince Harry to pull his pants down now. So here’s James McAvoy in New York yesterday promoting The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby. I feel like he’s never looked/been sexier. Or, you know, you could just listen to him talking to Letterman about his bachelor party. Full Story
