Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 6, 2014 18:02:22 January 6, 2014 18:02:22

There are several things that signal problems on a film shoot—budget overages, falling behind schedule, sudden firings and late reshoots being chief among them—and once upon a time, news of any one of those things was enough to get a production labeled as being “in trouble”. Full Story

There were some major players at the Palm Springs Film Festival this weekend. As Tom Hanks said at the event, “The holidays have come to an end but for some the celebrity mule train is just beginning”. Oscar nominations voting ends on Wednesday (and will be announced next Thursday) and since many Oscar voters live in Palm Springs, it’s always an opportunity for one last hustle to get their names on the ballot. Full Story

The first trailer for Johnny Depp’s Transcendence was released this weekend. Johnny Depp doesn’t wear fake teeth. Or a wig. Or cartoon makeup. And he doesn’t speak in an accent. Jesus, how long has it been? It’s so nice to hear his “regular” voice – a deep drawl, more suited to a rock star than a scientist, but let’s not complain. Full Story

Friends with The Other Woman

I think maybe I have too much holiday cheer. Because I just watched the first trailer for The Other Woman starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, and Jaime Lannister and…my first reaction wasn’t “it sucks”. Not that that means it’s amazing. For starters, they probably gave away too much of the movie in the preview. Full Story

Chris Evans is directing and starring in his own movie. Alice Eve is in it too. They’re shooting in New York. And on Saturday night they went out for dinner. Though they were photographed separately, they did leave together in the same car so… Just colleagues getting to know each other? Or more? I’m down for more. Full Story

Kate Mara showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of Her last night to support her sister, Rooney. It’s a thing now with these two. Even at an event like this, they won’t pose together. Is this fascinating to me, and only me, because I don’t have a sibling? I have an almost-sibling called Cat. Full Story

How do you follow up Beyonce and Olivia Pope? Everyone else today has to measure up. God I hope Angelina Jolie makes an appearance. But Julia Roberts works too. Julia was on Letterman yesterday before attending the premiere of August: Osage County. Beyonce? Sorry. Right now Beyonce is everything. Full Story

Joaquin Phoenix was on Jimmy Fallon last night. Before every Joaquin interview, I’m always braced for the fontrum. You know. But what a pleasure he was this time – he was loose, he was funny, he was quick, he was nice… And it was an INTERVIEW. So, technically, press. Perhaps it’s the love in his life. Full Story

Oh la. Very good. It’s been a long, long time since Tom Hardy’s looked this good. Tom attended The Sun Military Awards last night in London in a trench over a bow tie. Yes? YES. Tom is starting to prepare for his role at Elton John in the biopic about Elton John. Full Story

But first… Yes Tatiana Maslany. YES. YES. YES. And Amy Poehler. YES. YES. YES. Every year, the Hollywood Foreign Press decides to anoint a show, and often earlier than the other award boards. This year, that show is Masters Of Sex, right? Michael Sheen received a nomination and the show is now contending for Best Drama. Full Story
