Here’s Mark Wahlberg at the premiere of Lone Survivor last night. After the screening, he attended a Q&A and went off about actors comparing their lives and their preparation for film to what real soldiers and victims actually go through. “I don’t know it just hit me in a way that uh … I don’t know, it just really upset me that those guys were never gonna see their families again. Full Story

Maleficent is coming

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 13, 2013 15:20:44 November 13, 2013 15:20:44

The poster was released yesterday. Now the first teaser trailer. And... It's part Taylor Swift video, part Spice Girls Viva Forever (right?!?!), and part True Blood. There's a lot of True Blood flavour here, non? Obviously we're building here to a big reveal of Maleficent -- her voice, her face, her eyes. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult got back together while they were working on the new X-Men movie in Montreal this summer. That's not the hard part. Staying close when your job keeps you close, inside a bubble, is easy. You see each other every day. There's no effort required. It's like playing house. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The big movie release this month is Catching Fire. There was a time however that November belonged to the Harry Potter movies. The first and second films in the franchise came out in November. Out of the series of 8, a total of 4 of them were November opens.  Read Full Intro

When I first posted about Jennifer Lawrence’s new short hair last week (click here for a refresher) I called it news anchor hair, which means I wasn’t really feeling it.  It’s not growing on me. In fact, I dislike it more every time I see her. Full Story

There was a lot riding on the box office of Thor: The Dark World, namely that Marvel/Disney spent something like $300 million to make and market the movie, and it serves as a more realistic gauge for what the “Avengers bounce” is really going to be. Nothing in the Marvel universe is close to what Iron Man is, as a franchise, except for the Avengers movies themselves. Full Story

Maybe. Variety is reporting that three actresses have been tapped to screen test for a role in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman, which is being billed as a Man of Steel sequel but feels very much like a pre-cursor to a Justice League movie. The three actresses are Olga Kurylenko, the Fast & Furious’ Gal Gadot, and GI Joe: Retaliation’s Elodie Yung. Full Story

Here’s Emma Thompson at her hand and footprint ceremony at the Chinese theatre in Hollywood. As you know, this one knows how to put on a show. Because, as she’s said, as she’s declared emphatically, is that she is an entertainer, and that it’s her job, her obligation to ENTERTAIN. Full Story

Colin Farrell was at the premiere of Saving Mr. Banks last night. I really hate his hair right now. It’s his chance to be in a movie that’s critically acclaimed AND commercially successful, finally. Colin will follow that up in February, on Valentine’s Day, with Winter’s Tale, which he shot in New York around this time last year. Full Story

Rachel McAdams and Bradley Cooper were on the beach in Hawaii yesterday holding hands and being lovers. It’s for the new Cameron Crowe movie. This is an exclusive set of photos that we had to pay extra for. To me, it’s worth it just to see her. We don’t see her all that often. But that might change. Full Story

Kristen Stewart was photographed in New York yesterday on the set of a new independent film called Anesthesia. She’s expected to work a short few days. It’s the latest in a series of indie projects for Stewart. Reminds me of what Sarah wrote in her Stewart Career Prospectus Full Story
