The LEGO Movie actually looks funny (and Chris Pratt IS funny)

Sarah Posted by Sarah at July 8, 2013 19:08:06 July 8, 2013 19:08:06

A movie based on LEGO is an iffy proposition. On the one hand, it has universal appeal—LEGO has been popular so long that there are kids playing with it today and there are generations of adults who grew up with it, too. Who doesn’t love LEGO? It’s awesome. But on the other hand, movies based on toys don’t have the best track record, either financially or qualitatively (see also: Battlship, Transformers, GI: Joe). Full Story

The Lone Ranger TANKED

I didn’t expect it to be good—and it wasn’t—but I did think that Johnny Depp’s name combined with the audience-pleasing connection to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies would translate into good box office anyway. Boy was I wrong. Full Story

There will be more of this. Pacific Rim doesn’t open until next Friday. So we’ll get at least another major carpet. And some television interviews. My interviews with Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Guillermo del Toro, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day from the junket in San Francisco last weekend will air next week on etalk so I’ll save most of the details about being in a room with these two beasts for then (since many of you are still on holiday), but I will say, for now, that they’re waaaaaayyyyyy more sexy on the casual than they are on a carpet. Full Story

So here’s what Lindsay Lohan will be watching obsessively, if she hasn’t already, when she gets out of rehab… You’ll recall, Lohan was supposed to play Linda Lovelace in a movie called Inferno. She even had all her makeup done for a photoshoot in advance because that’s all it takes – a wig and some eyeliner. Full Story

Behold, the greatest delight the Veronica Mars Movie is going to present to us, or at least, the delight that will be mostly pleasure and not at all spiked with pain. Vinnie Van Lowe returns! I love him. I can’t help it. I love that reedy voice of his. Also, it should be noted that Ken Marino is drinking the blood of virgins or something, because he does not age at all. Full Story

I know I don’t need to explain to you why this is a celebration. Any day that includes Mark Ruffalo is a celebration. Ruffalo was on the set of The Normal Heart in New York yesterday with Matt Bomer. Bonus! The Normal Heart also features Taylor Kitsch and tells the story of one man’s experience with the AIDS crisis in the 80s. Full Story

It was announced today that Alfonso Cuaron’s highly anticipated Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will open the Venice Film Festival. George loves to open in Italy and Cuaron has always done well there. Venice has secured a great kick-off. And, again, as I’ve already mentioned a few times, Sandy’s having a great year. Full Story

There was a rumour circulating earlier this week that they’d be announcing who will play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey at Comic-Con. What the f-ck in the sh-t? WHY would Fifty Shades Of Grey be at Comic-Con? For what it’s worth, it’s been denied. Here’s Ian Somerhalder in Lake Como, Italy working his best Christian Grey in a fragrance shoot for Azzaro. Full Story

When I first started writing for LaineyGossip back in 2010 (oh my God—it’s been three years?!) I had a big Freebie Five crush on Chris Evans and Lainey gave me sh*t all the time. But then he got super jacked for Captain America and I wasn’t feeling it as much, as beefcake isn’t my favorite flavor. Full Story

Here are James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult hanging out in the afternoon. They hit up a local pub to watch the football game, play some pool, and smoke some hand-rolled cigarettes. Full Story
