Dear White People – the trailer

Sarah Posted by Sarah at July 23, 2014 15:25:28 July 23, 2014 15:25:28

One of the movies that caught my eye at this year’s Sundance was Dear White People, a satire of race politics centered around an African-American themed party thrown by white kids on a college campus and the hell that breaks loose afterward. It was a hit at Sundance, winning a Special Jury Prize and netting writer/director Justin Simien a Breakthrough Talent award. Full Story

It’s that time of year again, when the movie studios and TV networks venture into the Dork Forest to shill their wares in the hopes of generating audience interest in movies we won’t be seeing for another year. There’s been a curious development at Comic-Con over the last couple years, though: Movie studios have started drawing down their presence in Hall H. Full Story

There’s been some buzz that Zoe Saldana is pregnant. If she is, she wore a dress to try and distract from it last night at the Guardians Of The Galaxy premiere. So, while you baby-obsessed are busy trying to figure out whether or not it’s a bump, I’ll be over here talking about her hair… As bobs go, this is not the best I’ve seen. Full Story

TIFF announced its first slate of films for this year’s festival September 4-14. It’s a big ass deal, not only because I live in Toronto and I work for etalk and we cover it top to bottom but because TIFF is where people come to kick off their campaigns. Full Story

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were on hand at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy last night to christen Pratt’s new career as a movie star. I’m not loving his suit. It’s boring, and the tie looks sloppy (needs pressing?), and his douche hair is too much. Chris Pratt is so cute! What is this look? Why is he fighting his hotness? Chris Evans is always fighting his hotness—I need one of the Chrises to just own his sh*t and show up looking great. Full Story

Now here’s someone who would never, ever trash-talk Leonardo DiCaprio. Or risk excommunication. Check out Bradley Cooper in a leather bomber at the Hollywood premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy last night. As Sarah’s been saying, his Rocket Raccoon almost steals the movie. His voice performance in the role is said to be outstanding. Full Story

In 2011 the Black List was topped by a script for a biopic of Alan Turing, the computer scientist who developed the early computer that the British used to break the German’s Enigma code. You might also recognize his name from the Turing Test, a series of questions meant to determine if a machine is capable of fooling a human interrogator into thinking it’s human. Full Story

Star Wars plot: Luke needs a hand

Turn away if your eyeballs are a pristine, spoiler-free environment. We’re discussing potential Star Wars Episode VII plot details, so if you don’t want to know, go no further. It’s nothing particularly revelatory—it’s not like, “and then everyone at the wedding died” territory—but I know some people are special snowflakes who don’t like to know anything about a movie before they see it. Full Story

During the Maleficent press tour, when asked about her new collaboration with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie told Extra that: "It's not a big movie, it's not an action movie. It's the kind of movie we love, but aren't often cast in. Full Story

New York premiere of Magic In The Moonlight. Emma Stone showed up with her boyfriend Andrew Garfield. Of course her co-star Colin Firth was there too. Not a bad night, right? Many people thought Emma and Andrew would split as soon as they were done promoting Spider-Man, especially since…SPOILER ALERT… Her role in the franchise is done. Full Story
