Grace Of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, will open the Cannes Film Festival. The photo call happened today at the Palais. We’re going to come back to that in a minute. Let’s start with the reviews. They’re terrible. The BBC reports that people were laughing during the screening this morning. Full Story

They’re going to try to make a deal in Cannes this week for a film called The Secret In Their Eyes, adapted from the Oscar winning Argentine film of the same name. Production will begin in Boston in the fall. Fresh off his first nomination, Chiwetel Ejiofor will play the lead, a retired spy who comes back into the game because he can’t forget about a case that he couldn’t close. Full Story

Principal photography is getting underway on Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman: Justice League .5, or whatever they’re going to call this movie. They insist the title is not locked in, which means my dream of it being called Superhero Face Punch is still alive. Currently they’re shooting in Detroit, and today Snyder has released the first official image via his Twitter Full Story

Cannes has always been good to Gong Li. You could even call it adoration. I was once in an elevator with Gong Li in Cannes at the Carleton Hotel. As a Chinese person, growing up influenced by Chinese pop culture, it was an awesome moment. She was the face of Chinese cinema for a long time. Some might even call her one of the first faces of Chinese cinema as presented to the rest of the world. Full Story

Plan B produced The Normal Heart. So Brange showed up last night at the NY premiere of the film. (I desperately want a screener for this. Is anyone listening?) As you can imagine, it was a major win for HBO that the two decided to attend. HBO President Richard Pepler was there to greet them on the carpet and the Jolie gave him a very warm smile. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could not hold on to the top spot at the box office this weekend. Instead it was Neighbours and a big win for Zac Efron. Just weeks ago he was getting his ass beat under a bridge in Los Angeles, a sketchy incident he still can’t quite explain.  Read Full Intro

As summer movie season kicks off so does the biggest, glitziest film festival in the world, and this year Cannes is delivering early as we already have a smutty situation brewing around French director Olivier Dahan’s awful-looking Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco, which will open the festival. Full Story

Angelina Jolie’s best outfit in a long time, right? The Maleficent press tour in currently in London. The Jolie and Elle Fanning were at the photo call today, both in white. As you can see, Angelina’s shoes are the same that she wore in Paris in black – click here Full Story

My Obsession! They were on the red carpet last night in LA for the premiere of Godzilla which opens next week, one weekend before X-Men, with plenty of distance after Spider-Man 2. Variety reported a couple of weeks ago that they’re optimistic about how the movie will perform at the box office, estimating that it could gross up to $70 million upon release and make a lot more overseas. Full Story

There were a lot of studs on Good Morning America today. From the X-Men franchise: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and can we call Ellen Page a stud for being a straight-up badass? As you can see, Hugh and James have great chemistry. At one point James was massaging Hugh’s head. And maybe seeing what he’d look like if he had his eyes lifted. Full Story

How to give me a gossip boner: Brange. Any Brange. But Brange in black on a red carpet. Brad looking at the Jolie all wanty and smug. Just a hint of the possibility of Pitt Porn. But not yet. Don’t reach for the ass yet. There are two more weeks of this. Save it. Build me towards it. Full Story
