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

The Thor 2 premiere was a sausage fest

Lainey was hoping that RDJ would show in support of Thor: The Dark World at its LA premiere—not unreasonable, given he supported Captain America back in 2011—but Marvel typically only hooks one franchise outlier per premiere; they don’t clog their red carpets. So when Jeremy Renner showed up in my photo agency feed, I laughed out loud. Full Story

It was Hiddlemas Eve in Los Angeles last night as the Thor: The Dark World press tour wound to a close with the US premiere of the movie ahead of opening on Friday. The patron saint of Hiddlemas, Saint Tom the Huge Dork, was in attendance, wearing a suit that trended dangerously close to his Banker Suit Problem, but a geometric pattern just saves it. Full Story

You ready? She’s coming. Here’s Jennifer Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen, the Girl On Fire, arriving at LAX yesterday presumably to prepare for the Catching Fire press tour. She will be everywhere up in your face for the next few weeks leading up to the November 22 premiere. A new TV spot for the movie was just released yesterday. Full Story

Granny blonde and bobbed

Nicole Kidman is shooting Paddington (yes, about the bear) in London. She plays a bad bitch called Millicent who presumably wants to stuff Paddington and hang him on her wall. As you can see, her character is a blonde, with a fringed bob. I love that a new generation of kids will now think this is the evil lady terrorising them and their teddy friends in bed. Full Story

Idris Elba was in Johannesburg yesterday for the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Many members of Madiba’s family were there (the film has their enthusiastic blessing) and it appears that Elba was warmly received. Madiba’s wife Graca Machel greeted him by saying Full Story

Only Lovers Left Alive is funny?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 4, 2013 15:09:45 November 4, 2013 15:09:45

After premiering at Cannes and screening at TIFF, Only Lovers Left Alive, aka the vampire movie with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, finally has a trailer. And it looks funny, maybe? Funny is not a word I would use to describe writer/director Jim Jarmusch—usually I would go with obtuse, difficult, not for everyone. Full Story

As we enter our third week of Hiddlemas, celebrations move to America as the patron saint himself, Saint Tom the Huge Dork, has come to ring in the festivities by, what else, being a huge dork. But this time, he’s being a huge dork with kids, which is the most acceptable form of huge-dorkery. Full Story

Here are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner trick-or-treating with their kids yesterday, not in costume. Because, as she told Ellen Degeneres, the one year they dressed up, none of the other parents did, so Ben said he’s never doing it again. It was one of those wholesome family stories that everyone watches with a smile and that you’ll watch with a smile if you haven’t already and afterwards you’ll say to yourself, “Gosh darn, what a perfect family!” video platform Full Story

The LEGO Movie: Everything is awesome

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 1, 2013 13:35:56 November 1, 2013 13:35:56

At first, The LEGO Movie sounded like exactly the kind of consumerist filmmaking that is tanking summer movies (see also: Transformers, Battleship), but the first trailer was funny, and despite its graveyard shift release in February, I was optimistic. Full Story

It was announced a few months ago that Justin Timberlake would play Neil Bogart in a biopic of the music producer’s life called Spinning Gold. Now The Hollywood Reporter says that they want Spike Lee to direct. Ummmm… I don’t need to see any more acting from JT but at the same time, I do want to see JT trying to act in front of Spike Lee. Full Story
