The last time we talked about Loki and Tom Hiddleston, I said that Thor 2 is “almost a movie more about Loki than Thor”, and now with an interview that director Alan Taylor gave to MTV at the D23 Expo that can be changed to “Thor 2 is definitely more about Loki than Thor”. Full Story

Please click here for my initial post on the upcoming Lifetime adaptation of Flowers In The Attic. All I’m saying is don’t try to tell me it doesn’t have an effect.   Kiernan Shipka has signed on to play “Cathy”, alongside a cherub I don’t know named Mason Dye whose blonde hair and blue eyes seem tailor-made to get his heart broken by “Momma”. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston wore Christian Dior at the UK premiere of We’re The Millers last night. It’s a really cute dress. And it’s really cute on her. Even though it’s like a French maid-apron hybrid (is that the same thing?) because of those shoes. Another pair of shoes and it’s a totally different look. Full Story

Wong Kar-Wai’s The Grandmaster (now presented by Martin Scorsese) screened in New York last night. The director and his stars, Zhang Ziyi and Tony Leung, were there with Susan Sarandon and Samuel L Jackson. As you know, like a proper Hong Kong girl, I LOVE Tony Leung. And he looks so great in this black suit. Full Story

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association held a luncheon yesterday in Beverly Hills. You remember what Amy and Tina said of the HFPA at the Golden Globes? “There is no known cure for the Hollywood Foreign Press.” I just watched their opening monologue again. God that James Cameron joke still lands even after at least a dozen viewings. Full Story

Look, we don’t need an excuse to enjoy Sam Rockwell. He’s riding his bike in Greenwich Village. Enjoy. We also don’t need an excuse to talk about Sam Rockwell. This is what I want to say about Sam Rockwell today because I just saw The Way, Way Back. And he dances in the movie. Full Story

Remember when I wrote about Vin Diesel maybe making something happen at Marvel, and I was like, Ugh, please just let him be the space tree that barely speaks? Well guess what? He’s the tree. Diesel, after weeks of buildup via Facebook and some pretty blatant campaigning, is in talks to portray Groot, the sort-of talking space tree in Guardians of the Galaxy. Full Story

RDJ’s Iron Man 3 will likely be the movie that made the most money in 2013. The Avengers was the movie that made the most money in 2012. So Marvel promised RDJ a LOT more money to be in more movies. Now HTC has signed RDJ to a 2 year deal to help them sell some phones. The company is spending a billion – yes, that’s a BILLION – dollars on the campaign overall. Full Story

Well this is how you tell the world you don’t care that your ex-boyfriend has a new girlfriend. Not that that sort of petty thing would preoccupy our beloved Rachel McAdams. Rachel was in Munich the other day promoting About Time. The dress is Saint Laurent. It’s amazing on her. Right now, About Time is rating at 89% on Rotten Tomatoes although there aren’t very many reviews. Full Story

Angelina Jolie made a surprise appearance at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday to present a preview of Maleficent, opening next year, occupying that all-important Fourth Of July weekend spot. She spoke to the audience about her role, about how kids would come to set and she’d inadvertently scare the sh-t out of them because she’d be in costume and all they could see was a crazy witch with two massive horns growing out her head. Full Story
