The first trailer for Robert Downey Jr’s next film, The Judge, was released yesterday. My first thought after watching it was… Holy sh-t they lit the f-ck out of this movie. Then I texted Dylan who’s been lighting the f-ck out of our shoots for almost 15 years to ask him to confirm that he was seeing what I was seeing: they lit the f-ck out of this movie. Full Story

After Twilight wrapped up in 2012, Robert Pattinson took a year off, releasing no movies in 2013. This year, he’s back in front of the public with two new movies, The Rover and Maps to the Stars, from well-respected directors in which he plays a supporting role (he might sneak in a third, depending on how fast Werner Herzog works). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Colin Firth was supposed to be the voice of Paddington Bear in the new film due out this fall. That will not be happening anymore. Firth released a statement explaining why: "After a period of denial we've chosen 'conscious uncoupling.  Read Full Intro

They’re making a movie about Aaliyah. It’s a tv movie. On Lifetime. Who’s playing her? Zendaya. I wasn’t happy about this this morning. So I emailed the only person I know who cares about Baby Girl as much as I do: Sasha (who’s in Paris right now). Sasha’s reaction: “This is excellent casting! I pray this is not cheesy as f-ck either way screening party please. Full Story

Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, and Rob Lowe are in Barcelona to promote Sex Tape. It opens on July 18. This will be Cam’s second release this year. The Other Woman did well. Sex Tape? I’m not sure. Has there been a blockbuster comedy this summer? A Million Ways To Die In The West was supposed to be. Full Story

Joseph Gordon Levitt is in Montreal shooting a film called The Walk, a biopic about Philippe Petit who walked back and forth between the Twin Towers in 1974 on a wire. This explains the costume. It makes him look even littler than he is. I watched Don Jon on TV the other night. Did you enjoy it? The movie, JGL’s directorial debut received good reviews. Full Story

Supporting is the New Lead

A few weeks ago, I emailed Lainey to complain – I do this a lot (mostly about Leo and Aaron Paul). This time was no different. It’s summer. I miss Breaking Bad. I miss it A LOT. Lainey responded with “Orange is the New Black” and yes, it’s great, but it’s not the same, you know? A year after the series finale, and Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are pretty much kicking ass. Full Story

Guardians of the Galaxy: The best idea

Back when Marvel first announced their intention to adapt obscure-even-by-nerd-standards Guardians of the Galaxy and everyone went “What? WHO?” there was some not-so-quiet snickering throughout the industry. The prevailing attitude among rival studios and development teams was, Finally. Full Story

Robert Pattinson is in New York on the morning show circuit to promote The Rover. I quite like his sock choice. Out of Cannes, everyone was saying that his performance in the film is the best of his career. He has a supporting role in both The Rover and Maps To The Stars and seems to be settling nicely into a non-lead position. Full Story

Back when Ben Affleck was named as the new Batman, there was a rumor—that sounded more like wishing, really—that Matt Damon could be on board to play the most laughable of all superheroes, Aquaman. It was the latest in a succession of Aquaman rumors, and if you’re wondering why people keep talking up this guy Full Story
