Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 6, 2014 16:48:47 March 6, 2014 16:48:47

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

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

Angelina Jolie was in Lebanon on Sunday visiting with Syrian refugees in her role at UNHCR Special Envoy. They also just aired her new interview alongside Louis Zamperini on NBC with Tom Brokaw. NBC had the exclusive first trailer for Unbroken too. She’s always had a strong relationship with the network and Ann Curry in particular. Full Story

Not yet, Lupita

Lupita Nyong’o went back to burnt orange last night for the premiere of Non-Stop last night in LA. On anyone else, this would have been a tacky mess. On her, it’s exquisite. And once again, her hair is the porn. Two parts and an ode to Bobby Brown.  Full Story

Before the party, there’s the vote. This is Carey Mulligan in London on the set of the new film Suffragette, in which she plays Maude, “a foot soldier of the early feminist movement". Well, I guess it’s not a rom-com. Then again, rom-coms aren’t exactly Carey’s jam. Full Story

Pompeii opens today. It’s Kit Harington’s first time as the lead in a movie. And as much as I like him, as much as I hope he’ll be successful, I’m not sure it’s happening here, with this film. The reviews aren’t great. And, worse, they’re saying that Pompeii will probably be “crushed Full Story

Robert Pattinson is in Toronto shooting a movie with Dane DeHaan. DeHaan plays James Dean. And something something something about a photographer who took pictures of Dean for LIFE Magazine? Pattinson is apparently the photographer which, given that he's the bigger name -- so far -- I guess that means he's the focus of the story. Full Story

The cast for Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot has been announced and as has been expected  for a while now, Michael B. Jordan will star as Johnny “Human Torch” Storm. I’m really, really excited about this. Not only because Jordan is a good actor and deserves this kind of break, not only as a fan of FNL who likes to see Dillon alums get good gigs, but because this is the first major instance of colorblind casting for a superhero. Full Story
