For some reason, this was the first thought that came to mind. You remember when Matthew McConaughey was arrested for playing bongos naked? And he went on to win an Oscar 15 years later! This must have been what he meant in his Oscar speech – only instead of 10 years it shoulda been 15. Anyway, here’s Jake Gyllenhaal in Rome shooting Everest, also naked, banging on some pots and pans, only unlike McConaughey, his junk is taped up. Full Story

I don’t know if they are. I just read the caption on these photos “Shailene Woodley and reported boyfriend Theo James at LAX". It’s the natural, expected narrative, I suppose. And I guess they’re hoping that it might turn into the whole Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson Twi-Hard thing all over again? But why does it have to? Jennifer Lawrence isn’t dating Josh Hutcherson and doesn’t have to. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 11, 2014 13:37:18 March 11, 2014 13:37:18

Disney released a poster featuring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent yesterday. The movie will be released on May 30. And that’s great timing, you know why? Cannes. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 14 – May 25 and, well, Brange loves Cannes. And it’s not like the Jolie is new to premiering a film out of competition there. Full Story

The first trailer for Ryan Murphy’s The Normal Heart was released this weekend. The film premieres on HBO on May 25th. Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, Matt Bomer, and Julia Roberts in a wheelchair. I can’t wait to see this. Not only because MARK RUFFALO but because for those of us who grew up 80s, who lived through the onset of AIDS/HIV, this is the story to tell. Full Story

That’s what his interviews feel like these days. Like he’s letting his guard down and we’re seeing inside the shell. The admissions of therapy, the reluctance to take on another superhero franchise, his open acknowledgment of his nervousness-bordering-on-social-anxiety. None of that is bad stuff. Full Story

The Annie trailer

The first trailer for the new Annie movie was released yesterday starring Quvenzhane Wallis, Jamie Foxx, and Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan. God I want it to be good. I want it to be good so bad, SO BAD. But this trailer is scaring the sh-t out of me. Let’s start with Cameron Diaz. I don’t believe her. Full Story

We’re about three and a half months out from Michael Bay’s latest seizure-inducing CGI nightmare, Transformers: Age of Extinction, a movie which continues to defy odds by not being called simply Trans4mers, which means it’s time to start rolling out trailers. So after a teaser Full Story

The Avengers’ baby situation

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 5, 2014 16:34:49 March 5, 2014 16:34:49

I don’t want to call it a problem. A healthy young woman in control of her life and choices being pregnant is never a problem. But when you’re an actress in a high-profile franchise that is just days away from starting principal photography and your character is expected to carry a sizeable chunk of the movie, and the role is physical and the costume is unforgiving, well. Full Story

How about one for the Twi-Hards? Robert Pattinson is working on a film in Toronto. I live in Toronto. He was on set today with a cow. Dragging the cow. I am a cow. A f-cking cow. Let's just go ahead and call the cow Lainey, even though Lainey is a blonde cow. They couldn't find a dark brown cow? It does make a lot of sense though. Full Story

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 26, 2014 15:58:13 February 26, 2014 15:58:13

Bryan Cranston not being cast as Lex Luthor broke the internet’s heart, but if anything can heal us and end our long electrical nightmare, it’s Bryan Cranston being the hero of the new Godzilla remake. As if I wasn’t already stoked Full Story
