Which should be the title of the article every time I post about Mark Ruffalo. Yesterday I read an article about Mark Ruffalo here at the Guardian about how great he was in You Can Count On Me, and specifically the scene with Laura Linney where he cries in front of Laura Linney. Full Story

12 Years A Slave – it’s the film everyone is calling the frontrunner for Best Picture. And the film that seems to be scaring off a few contenders. 12 Years screened at the New York Film Festival last night. Director Steve McQueen was there (and Madonna had to get in a photo with him) with star Chiwetel Ejiofor who has to be one of the five Best Actor nominees at this point, I mean he has to. Full Story

He is, isn’t he? He’s a total disaster but is there anyone else like him in the under 30 market? Or even over 30? A dependably good actor (though not always in dependably good movies), who, for better or worse, is always good for an entertaining interview and he can make traffic Full Story

Katie Holmes stepped out yesterday in New York in leather pants and trainers. Click here to see a better shot of her kicks. These actually look pretty comfortable. The pants, I mean. It’s a cute look on her. It’s way cuter than when she wears sh-t she designs herself. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Gravity broke the October box office record for a non-sequel this weekend. It’s great news for movie stars. And it’s great news for Sandra Bullock, who is a real movie star. Sandy’s 2013/2014 is looking a lot like her 2009/2010 – hit comedy in the summer (The Proposal/The Heat) followed by a commercially successful drama in the fall (The Blind Side/Gravity) and then…on to Oscar? If Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep have locked down the first two nomination spots (and, right now, it seems inconceivable that they won’t be there in March), Gravity’s success means Sandy’s running a very close third in the race.  Read Full Intro

JT bombs at the box office

When The Social Network was released a few years ago, out of nowhere people were talking about a possible Best Supporting Actor nomination for Justin Timberlake – you remember that? I felt like it was a practical joke. Did we all see the same movie? Every JT scene was cut like a Britney Spears video, quick edits to camouflage his limited range. Full Story

Jack Ryan’s Swan Song

In the wake of Tom Clancy’s death earlier this week at 66, it could seem mercenary that Paramount is releasing the first poster and trailer for the latest cinematic iteration of Clancy’s popular character Jack Ryan, which is creatively titled Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (sounds like a video game). Full Story

Henry and Hammer: after the summer

Looking ahead from 6 months, there were high expectations for both Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. Man Of Steel and The Lone Ranger were supposed to make them big movie stars? What’s on the report card? Well, Cavill pissed his momentum away with a Kaley Cuoco situation. And Hammer’s Lone Ranger took a dump at the box office and then he tried to blame the critics for its failure. Full Story

It's been so long since we've seen her on a carpet and seeing her here now... Look at her. I have missed her. She is glorious. A vision! Here's Penelope Cruz at a London screening of The Counselor with Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender. Ordinarily, I'd maaayyyybe wonder if the floor length gown is kinda over the top buuuuuut. Full Story

And not William and Harry. This is the set of Into The Woods in England. And that’s Billy Magnussen who plays Rapunzel’s prince with Chris Pine who plays Cinderella’s prince. These princes costumes are kinda rock’n’roll, non? And these two actors are certainly very…princely. Full Story
