American Hustle screened last night. Jennifer Lawrence was not there in person...but they felt her presence. What great timing. Or, perhaps they strategically chose the date of the New York Film Critics Circle's announcement of their winners to make their premiere. The NYFCC named American Hustle and NOT 12 Years A Slave as Best Picture giving the Oscar race a major shakeup. Full Story

Remember how last year Jeremy Renner was everywhere, trying to be a movie star, and that the centerpiece of his campaign was a Bourne movie that didn’t star Jason Bourne? Well, the strategy kinda sorta worked. The movie, The Bourne Legacy (aka the non-Bourne Bourne), did well enough Full Story

Here are James Franco and Seth Rogen with some puppies on the set of their new movie. So… about that Bound 2 parody video that they made… Wasn’t funny to me. Sorry? I thought the original was funny. Like, hilarious. James and Seth? Not really. What’s the gag? That two straight dudes are simulating the sex? Not my kind of humour. Full Story

Um. This might keep me busy tonight. Right before I fall asleep. Harry Styles – with a few other members of One Direction – attended the premiere of The Class of 92 last night in London. At one point he posed with David Beckham. A couple of weeks ago, I posted these photos Full Story

It was confirmed last week that Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street is 3 hours long, opening at Christmas. And they had to rush it. Originally the film was scheduled for November but Scorsese wasn’t finished cutting it. Somehow they were able to find a new date on the calendar, pushing aside some other movies so that Marty and Leo could be part of award season. Full Story
