Okay, as you may have gleaned from life and people who sing Rent on the subway, there are several tiers of musical theatre fans.

It’s happened before—a critic doesn’t like the latest popular superhero movie and tanks its 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and fanboys flip out and say a bunch of totally over the top, inappropriate stuff in the comments section, embarrassing themselves and second-hand embarrassing nerds at large. Full Story

Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey were at Comic-Con this year to present the new trailer for Interstellar. It was a first time for both. Nolan’s one of those directors who doesn’t give anything away before a film’s release. Scripts are said to be hand delivered and actors supposedly have to read them while the person waits outside so that there are never any copies that can potentially be leaked. Full Story

Before that he was shooting A Most Violent Year, scheduled for release in November, with some talk of possible award season inclusion. Yesterday it was announced that Oscar will star in the upcoming HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero based on the true story of Nick Wasicsko who was, in the late 80s, then the youngest mayor in America. Full Story

Is Ethan Hawke your re-boyfriend yet? If you say no, is it because you haven’t seen Boyhood? See it. Then be the contrarian. I know the type. The film has received near universal acclaim, currently sitting at a 99% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But some people just get ruined by hype. Full Story

While Justin Bieber was fronting like he’s all big and bad in Orlando Bloom’s face last night, Selena Gomez was at the Hollywood premiere for her new movie Behaving Badly. It’s a bad title. It looks like a really bad movie. Maybe that’s why she seems so …uncomfortable? Let’s play Photo Assumption and make some baseless suggestions about why she looks so clenched. Full Story

A few days ago THR reported that Joaquin Phoenix and Marvel are in negotiations for him to play Dr Strange. I mean, he’s definitely right for it. On talent, he could totally do it. Of course he could. But… is Joaquin Phoenix a Company Man? Think of how RDJ is a Company Man now for Marvel. Full Story
