It’s a good way to go out on a Friday. Here’s Tom Hiddleston being a big ole dork, doing an impression of Owen Wilson playing Loki. He’s a good mimic, he’s got decent delivery—how has he not done any comedies? Someone cast Hiddles in a comedy, please. Although you could argue that the Thor movies are basically comedies, but I’m not sure how much of that is intentional. Full Story

That’s a line from this new Monuments Mens trailer that was just released. And it could apply to the film’s awards season strategy too. They have to move. They have to move now because otherwise 12 Years A Slave will walk away with it. If they want to give 12 Years a run at all, they have to move. Full Story

Good Morning Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch was on Good Morning America today presumably to promote The Fifth Estate. Julian Assange borrowed from Sinead O’Connor this week and wrote a hissy fit open letter to Cumberbatch about his portrayal. Thanks for the publicity, Julian. Don’t you know? Or does he know and that’s the point? Too heavy before a long weekend. Full Story

Several character posters for Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac were released yesterday featuring all the actors’ orgasm faces. Some of them, I think, are coming while stimulating themselves. Some of them are coming while being stimulated. Shia is … I don’t know what Shia LaBeouf is. Full Story

American Hustle Scorsese

The second trailer for American Hustle has been released. Even from the beginning everyone was saying it felt like a Scorsese picture but now, this, this is like a Scorsese pattern. It hit me near the end, when Christian Bale delivers this line: "It's gotta be the best we've ever done. Full Story

Holy sh--------t. Sometimes someone looks so good you want to punch yourself in the face. Picture me pile-driving myself over and over again. Because Sandra Bullock, tonight in London at the premiere of Gravity, is f-cking any age, and she's almost 50. We did a thing on The Social a couple of weeks ago about a recent study that revealed that most people think that 50 is the ideal age and all of us were like, really? Bullsh-t. Full Story

Which should be the title of the article every time I post about Mark Ruffalo. Yesterday I read an article about Mark Ruffalo here at the Guardian about how great he was in You Can Count On Me, and specifically the scene with Laura Linney where he cries in front of Laura Linney. Full Story

12 Years A Slave – it’s the film everyone is calling the frontrunner for Best Picture. And the film that seems to be scaring off a few contenders. 12 Years screened at the New York Film Festival last night. Director Steve McQueen was there (and Madonna had to get in a photo with him) with star Chiwetel Ejiofor who has to be one of the five Best Actor nominees at this point, I mean he has to. Full Story

He is, isn’t he? He’s a total disaster but is there anyone else like him in the under 30 market? Or even over 30? A dependably good actor (though not always in dependably good movies), who, for better or worse, is always good for an entertaining interview and he can make traffic Full Story

Katie Holmes stepped out yesterday in New York in leather pants and trainers. Click here to see a better shot of her kicks. These actually look pretty comfortable. The pants, I mean. It’s a cute look on her. It’s way cuter than when she wears sh-t she designs herself. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Gravity broke the October box office record for a non-sequel this weekend. It’s great news for movie stars. And it’s great news for Sandra Bullock, who is a real movie star. Sandy’s 2013/2014 is looking a lot like her 2009/2010 – hit comedy in the summer (The Proposal/The Heat) followed by a commercially successful drama in the fall (The Blind Side/Gravity) and then…on to Oscar? If Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep have locked down the first two nomination spots (and, right now, it seems inconceivable that they won’t be there in March), Gravity’s success means Sandy’s running a very close third in the race.  Read Full Intro
