Nicole Kidman is currently in Australia shooting a movie called Strangeland. This is why she couldn’t attend the ACM Awards with Keith Urban. As you can see, Gran’s gone brown. And it works for her. Because it softens her face. It mutes the enhancements. There’s something about blonde on her that highlights the tight and the fill, you know? Over in Vegas though, where Keith was winning awards and performing, it’s a different story. Full Story

Except for the Winter Soldier. That ended in a draw because the Winter Soldier is an extreme badass of the first order and it’s going to take more than a punchy dude with a shield to bring him under control. (Here’s why the Winter Soldier is the villain Marvel has needed so badly. Full Story

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 press tour has arrived in North America. Emma Stone was on Kimmel last night. Let’s start there. She has a cold. But you couldn’t really tell because, as always, she was sweet and charming and willing to embarrass herself. By demonstrating that her hidden talent is forging all the Spice Girls’ signatures. Full Story

We’re big fans of Anthony Mackie around here. Lainey has him on her Freebie Five, and he’s on my Drinking Buddy List, as in, I don’t want to Five him, but I’d totally have a drink with him. Although I might have to rethink the Five thing, because while in the past he’s been too boyish for my taste, over the last couple years he’s gotten a lot more man. Full Story

Dear Holly Bario, you smart executive who wisely gave the greenlight to Eleanor & Park… Sometimes I get mad at the concept of word of mouth.  It seems like such an egalitarian but inefficient system.  Like, why do I have to wait that long to find things out that might be awesome, that might have been improving my life all this time? This is how I feel about Rainbow Rowell’s books, and Eleanor & Park in particular. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson is the smartest person in the world

And also she kicks all of the ass. In a movie, anyway. The first trailer for Luc Besson’s latest, Lucy, was released and it’s pretty much just ScarJo and her mutant eyes destroying everyone around her. The plot reminds me of that dumb Bradley Cooper movie, Limitless, in which a drug accesses the 90% of the brain that we “don’t use” and thus makes the protagonist super smart and super capable, except Lucy looks more like a straight action movie than Limitless. Full Story

She kind of is already, right? Meryl is Meryl like Madonna is Madonna, like Beyonce is Beyonce, like Adele is Adele, like Lorde is Lorde. Meryl is Hollywood’s rock star (sorry Johnny),  so it makes sense that she will now play a rock star. Full Story

I think it’s time for a come to Jesus. I think we need to sit down and decide what’s important—I mean really important—and what you want the film industry to look like in the 21st century. Because we’re fourteen years into a new millennium and things are evolving, socially, politically and culturally. Full Story

Noah did solid business at the box office this weekend opening at $44 million which means… it’s not a flop. Considering that the film has made almost $100 million overseas already, I’d say the studio is now much more relieved. Or maybe the bad press that surrounded the movie actually helped in the end? People were curious about the controversy. Full Story

Someone called Tammy wrote to me today: “Yep, have to say, pretty burnt out on the Andrew/Emma show.  Wonder if this relationship will last past the Spiderman movies or if the PR parade will end soon after...  I'm actually not overly fond of either.  Can we move on?” The answer is…No. Full Story
