One of my favorite new video games this year is Injustice: Gods Among Us, which is a fighting game that pits all of DC Comics’ best superheroes and villains against each other. It’s a solid game, with decent graphics (characters look GREAT but the backgrounds get a little muddy), and slick mechanics and, well, if you’ve ever wanted to watch Batman curb-stomp Superman, this is the game for you. Full Story

It’s longer, non? After spending last week in Miami “appreciating art”, Leonardo DiCaprio was in Paris last night for the premiere of The Wolf Of Wall Street. Look at it at the back there. It’s almost one length. And how genetically fortuitous that, at 39, Leo’s hairline recession is minimal. Full Story

We’ve been documenting the rapid decline of Johnny Depp’s appeal over the last couple of years. He’s making it easy. Check out Johnny caught with his pants down while filming a scene for Mordecai last night in London. I mean, I know it’s just a character, yet another weird and quirky character he’s adding to his ever-growing resumé of weird and quirky characters. Full Story

It’s an early Christmas present! Check out My Obsession, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, kissing each other in Vancouver yesterday. Sam, as you know, is directing Fifty Shades Of Grey, and she was embraced by her husband who came to visit the set. I think maybe he tried to grab her ass? YASSSSSS…!!!!!!!! MORE!!!!!!!!!!!! Apparently they’ve been booting around town when she’s not working all like regular and un-celebrity with their kids, being sweet and unassuming, attracting almost no attention. Full Story

An emotional James McAvoy accepted Best Actor at the British Independent Film Awards in London last night for his performance in Filth. "It's like Scotland's won the World Cup”, he said. Filth recently secured North American distribution but still won’t be released until Spring 2014. Full Story

The timing…. It has been confirmed that Nelson Mandela has passed away. Tonight is the UK premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Prince William and Princess Catherine were in attendance. Mandela was 95 years old. The film has the endorsement of his family and Idris Elba’s performance was warmly embraced. Full Story

Tom Hiddleston’s fairy movie

I deleted the knowledge that Tom Hiddleston is voicing Captain Hook in the latest Tinkerbell movie for Disney. It is in no way relevant to me, a grown-ass woman who does not have children to whom I must cater. So when Lainey emailed me about covering a new Tom Hiddleston trailer, I was thinking it was more Only Lovers Left Alive, or perhaps an advertisement for Coriolanus, which opens this week on London’s West End. Full Story

Never. But I do love the comments he made last night at the premiere of The Railway Man in London. It’s the true story of Eric Lomax who was captured during the Second World War, tortured, and made to work on Thai-Burma railway. Many years later he decided to confront his tormentor. Lomax is survived by his wife Patti who praised Full Story

Mrs Timberlake was out last night at the premiere for her film The Truth About Emmanuel which screened at Sundance and is currently available On Demand. A theatrical release will follow in January, which is typically where/when movies go to die. But, you know, it’s hard out there for an “indie” actress. Full Story

The Hollywood Reporter put Benedict Cumberbatch on the cover a few months ago, declaring him officially part of the A List. Click here to read Sarah’s piece at the time. All signs did indeed point, then, to it being the Year of Cumberbatch, especially since The Fifth Estate was about to screen at TIFF and everyone was already talking Oscar. Full Story

The first full trailer has just been released. Andrew Garfield was wonderful as Peter Parker in the first (not really the first but the re-first) installment. And he’s just as appealing here as Peter grows more self-assured with his powers and responsibilities. Also, there’s an adorable flirting scene between him and Emma Stone. Full Story
