Horrors on the half shell

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 1, 2014 15:16:36 May 1, 2014 15:16:36

I don’t know what I’ve done to upset Lainey, but for some reason today I’ve been given the punishment of looking at the second trailer for the CG abomination that is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The trailer is only eighty-one seconds long but cripes, it’s hard to sustain eye contact for longer than twenty seconds at a time. Full Story

Zac's PR push

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 30, 2014 20:02:28 April 30, 2014 20:02:28

Zac Efron covers the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, a dick-sucky profile that's meant to promote the upcoming Neighbours and also rehabilitate his image after the rehab(s) and the under-the-bridge fighting. Oh, yeah, about that under-the-bridge incident.. Even the writer acknowledges that Efron is "coy" about what happened. Full Story

The Tony Award nominations were announced today in New York by Lucy Liu and Jonathan Groff. But Hugh Jackman made an appearance because he’ll be returning as the show’s host on June 8th. This will come right after an extensive promotional tour for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Because he WORKS. Full Story

Meet the rest of the Star Wars cast

Lainey’s all over Oscar Isaac, which means I get to be all over everyone else (phrasing). Star Wars Episode VII has announced its cast—the official, no bullsh*t cast—which means that they win the internet today. And it’s an interesting group. Really, very genuinely interesting and promising. Full Story

Sarah’s got the nerd analysis on this in a minute… I just want to talk about the #1 on my Five List, Oscar Isaac. Who has been confirmed for Star Wars! And this is how Llewyn Davis is paying off. He was supposed to be a contender when LIewyn Davis arrived in Cannes last year. Full Story

Check out Zac Efron last night at the LA premiere of Neighbours with co-star and possible (fake) girlfriend Halston Sage who is supposed to make us forget about the time he broke his face on a puddle of water at his house and ended up under a sketchy bridge. But that name. Give me a break with that name. Full Story

So far, RDJ is not embarrassing

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 29, 2014 15:26:25 April 29, 2014 15:26:25

When RDJ joined Twitter I fretted, because I love RDJ lots and Twitter has betrayed me before—betrayed all of us—ruining many a celebrity crush. But so far, RDJ’s Twitter is not bad. So far, he’s not an aggressive tweeter. He’s not offering daily affirmations or abusing the quota on exclamation points, and though his favorites  Full Story

Look. I love Jennifer Lawrence. You know I do. But… This happened in Paris at a train station. And she’s about to start heavy promotion for X-Men. And the standard, always, is Hugh Jackman. Who just doesn’t pull this kind of bullsh-t, period. Even when he’s with his kids. Full Story

The Justice League is finally happening, seriously, for real this time

What we know for sure: Zack Snyder has been handed the keys to Warner Brothers/DC’s superhero kingdom and will direct the Justice League movie. I thought maybe that Ben Affleck playing Batman was a bride price to get him to direct the Justice League, but that dream is dashed (though he would’ve done a great job with it). Full Story

Is your back OK?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner went for back massages together yesterday. Maybe not Ben’s most attractive sighting. Check the way he’s getting out the car. That’s a pretty un-sexy dismount, right there. It’s a half squat. With turned out feet. Yeah, not sexy. And what happens when he bends down isn’t cute either. Full Story

Here are Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield at the big New York premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last night, likely the last major carpet they’ll walk together in support of this movie, and maybe this franchise? I haven’t seen it. But, you know, you know what they say about Gwen Stacy. Full Story
