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

It’s been a while since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have hit a carpet together. I think…over a year? And there have been a few occasions when there would have been opportunities. Award season, some kids’ choice awards, the movie awards, Cannes… The last time they were together on a carpet, at least according to Getty Images, it was June 2012 at an Australians in Film event. Full Story

#HaveYouBeenBad

A trailer for Spike Jonze's Her was released today. It's a showcase for Joaquin Phoenix who plays a man who keeps to himself -- not a surprise -- and ends up falling in love with his ...smartphone? Siri? It's Scarlett Johansson's voice. I've always said she has the best voice. Joaquin Phoenix is mesmerising to watch -- whatever he's in. Full Story
