Captain America kicks ass

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 3, 2014 15:14:22 February 3, 2014 15:14:22

Marvel played the “Super Bowl TV spot telling you to go watch a trailer online” card, for April’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It’s the Phase 2 film that most directly sets up The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and DAMN, did they deliver a great second trailer. It gives a sense of how good Cap 2 actually is, because even if Captain America is nobody’s favorite, this might be the best movie Marvel has put together yet. Full Story

Here’s a carefree Charlie Hunnam in New York today. He’s been in NY all week. The outfits don’t really change a lot. Coat’s the same, toque’s the same, sometimes he wears sweats, other times he wears jeans. All the time he looks hot. And now we won’t get to see him naked with Dakota Johnson because he pulled out of Fifty Shades Of Grey… Which is where we find Jamie Dornan, the official Christian Grey, on set in the Vancouver rain yesterday shooting a running scene. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto were in London last night for the UK premiere of Dallas Buyers Club. As you know, Jared has been totally unchallenged in the Best Supporting Actor category so far and is predicted to walk away with it, no doubt. As you’ve seen, Matthew has played a flawless campaign. Full Story

The Fault In Our Stars first trailer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 29, 2014 21:16:19 January 29, 2014 21:16:19

The whole world loved that book. And, as I did last year when I first wrote about it after Shailene Woodley was cast as Hazel, I’m sorry, please forgive me. Because I wasn’t as obsessed with it as you were. Is that OK? I hope that’s OK. Full Story

Bodhi Hiddleston

Sarah was really pissy at the news that they’re thinking of doing a Point Break remake starring Gerard Butler – click here for a refresher. But what if it was Tom Hiddleston playing Bodhi? Sarah’s got a lot of time for Tom Hiddleston. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio, always popular, could be even more popular after Friday as we move into the Year of the Horse. Horses and Tigers are very compatible. Tigers can protect Rats. If I’m a Hollywood Rat, I might be trying to shield myself behind Leo’s luck for the next 12 months. Unless he’s too busy looking out for his mentee, Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange. Full Story

The Posh Fashion Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 28, 2014 15:23:37 January 28, 2014 15:23:37

Do you miss Victoria Beckham? Posh hasn’t been papped in a long time. See? They can go deep underground when they want to. Even Victoria Beckham can go deep underground when she wants to. She wants to because she understands that her absence increases the value when she actually does show up. Full Story

Jolie Grammys

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 27, 2014 17:22:28 January 27, 2014 17:22:28

A new trailer for Maleficent aired last night during the Grammys. MUUUUUUUCH better than the sh-tty CGI previews we’ve seen so far. The effects still look Spice Girls Viva Forever and it is Disney, after all, so we’ll be holding hands by the end of it, no doubt, but the focus this time is on Angelina Jolie’s personality. Full Story

Cannes Freeze

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 24, 2014 16:26:44 January 24, 2014 16:26:44

I have forgotten what warm is. Warm is a distant memory of another time, when the sky wasn’t grey and ice didn’t cover everything and I could feel all of my fingers and toes. But warm is gone and it is the cold time now. It will just get colder and colder until society breaks down and we’re forced to live in a frozen nightmare hellscape. Full Story

Where are my bloody pirates?!

I have dragons. I’m happy with the dragons. Dragons are coming out the pop culture wazoo right now, and I love it. But I don’t have any pirates. Rather, the pirates I do have are stupid, and I want better ones. (Exception: Gideon Defoe’s The Pirates! series, and adaptations thereof. Full Story

Who ruined Quentin Tarantino’s next big movie? That’s the question everyone’s asking today in Hollywood after the script for his upcoming Western, The Hateful Eight, leaked. And what’s really interesting is that the list of potentially guilty parties is REALLY short. According to his new interview with Deadline, Quentin had only shown the script to six people, including Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, and their agents. Full Story
