I’ve been highly critical of and already disappointed in World War Z for like, three years now. I’ve called it a nightmare, I’ve been harsh on Brad Pitt’s responsibilities and decision-making regarding this project, and I’m not optimistic for the film’s chances at the box office. Full Story

Sarah from Cinesnark went to some nerd convention this weekend and in response to my post yesterday -- click here for a refresher -- about Chris Evans's dark hair, told me that the hair colour was indeed an issue for some of the comic dorks. Full Story

The Great Gatsby junket happened in New York this weekend. Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio at the press conference. Are you feeling his open shirt? I am not feeling his open shirt. Would it kill him to sell this movie the way he looks in this movie?!? This is not important to the Actor, Lainey. Really? You don’t think his appearance had anything to do with why Baz Luhrmann put him in the f-cking movie? I love the way he looks in the movie. Full Story

It’s a Macbeth-off

I really wish someone had done a simulcast of the Macbeth adaptation starring James McAvoy. It got great reviews and McAvoy, a Scot and an actor who does such a killer job communicating suffering is, like, textbook Macbeth. McAvoy’s Macbeth was, by all accounts, an exceptional performance and production. Full Story

Have you heard? Iron Man 3 made more money overseas than The Avengers. It’s already earned $200 million in advance of the domestic opening. Let’s break down RDJ’s recent box office record: Iron Man 3 -- $200 million to date, and it hasn’t even been released in North America The Avengers -- $1. Full Story

As expected, The Bling Ring will be screened at Cannes but not in competition. Not that that matters. All that matters, really, is that Sofia Coppola and her actors will represent on the tapis rouge. Hermione will be on the Croisette for the first time. Here’s Emma Watson in London this weekend walking around with a friend, not unlike the way her character in The Bling Ring walks around West Hollywood, only she’s not wearing celebrity-stolen goods. Full Story

My Iron Man 3 review is full of spoilers. So I’ll wait to post it. But, really, what do you need me for? The critics are overwhelmingly in favour. At this writing (Sunday April 28, 2013, 8pm ET), Rotten Tomatoes has it at 92% fresh. Many are saying this one is the best of the three. Full Story

First call up the memory. The dusty book with the library smell and the girl from the book-modelling place (where do they find those people)? The utter unfamiliarity of New Mexico for most of her readers, who were conditioned to believe that all Judy Blume books would happen a train ride away from Manhattan. Full Story

I said once that no matter how bad The Lone Ranger looks, I wouldn’t bet against director Gore Verbinski pulling a rabbit out of his hat and coming up with something entertaining and crowd-pleasing, if not exactly good. Verbinski is the kind of director that exceeds in chaotic conditions and he has a knack for finding solid character beats amidst splashy action sequences. Full Story

Alan Rickman is directing Kate Winslet in a new film called A Little Chaos. It's a period piece. So...now what do you want to watch? Marianne Dashwood, Colonel Brandon, how long has it been since your last viewing of Sense & Sensibility? Recently-ish for me, actually. It was available on a flight late last year. Full Story

I always forget that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was in GI: Joe. In fact, I always forget that JGL and Channing Tatum have actually been in other stuff together (Stop-Loss, JGL’s upcoming Don Jon). They’re probably friends, or friendly work acquaintances anyway. Isn’t that weird? JGL and Channing Tatum are buddies. Full Story
