It's been a week since Lindsay Lohan was let out of rehab. In almost every article published after her release, Lohan has been described as "happy and healthy". Check her out in New York yesterday being followed around by Oprah's cameras for that reality series that will air on OWN. Full Story

Turns out there is a casting process that will be as exhausting (and ridiculous) as the speculation surrounding who will play Christian Grey: Who will play Bruce Wayne, Batman? As revealed at Comic-Con, the Man Of Steel sequel will feature both Superman and Batman. Some Teen Wolf star already tried to get ahead of the story last week – click here Full Story

I know right? That was my reaction, too. Having a slash is important these days—being just an actor isn’t enough anymore—and Chris Evans has decided to tack “slash-director” onto his resume with a movie called 1:30 Train. It’s about a couple that meets in New York and spends a magical night together, exploring the city and each other (I added that last part, but it does sound like that kind of movie). Full Story

Jennifer Aniston wore an eggplant satin Burberry dress last night at the premiere of We’re The Millers. You know how I feel about this material. It never, ever photographs well. It takes the light and does sh-tty things with it. And, frankly, it’s not all that stylish. Jen’s fiancé Justin Theroux did not walk the carpet with her. Full Story

Yet another trailer from a possible award season contender. According to Deadline, Universal decided to release the film in December because the studio believes that it could factor into the Best Picture race. Look, I know it’s early, but we are now in the business of trying to hype this sh-t as much and as early as possible until we are all exhausted from the speculation, OK? Anyway, this is our first look at Lone Survivor, based on the true story of a group of Navy SEALS sent into a failed mission. Full Story

The Hollywood Reporter just posted a new interview with Wes Bentley in which he, once again, discusses his addiction and eventual comeback. RDJ had to do this for a while when he finally got clean and it’s been the same for Bentley. Like RDJ, he wears it graciously, taking full ownership and accountability for what happened. Full Story

I have pictures to burn off of my subscription for the last day of the month. Thank you Jennifer Aniston for facilitating this. Jen’s in New York, AS YOU KNOW, filming Squirrels For The Nuts. She shot a scene with Rhys Ifans and a German shepherd where they’re both talking on their cell phones. Full Story

American Hustle: the movie about hair

Sarah wrote earlier that this award season is looking stacked, with one prestige film after another releasing impressive-looking trailers as we approach both the Venice and Toronto film festivals and then heavy campaigning this fall. Remember, the Oscars aren’t until March 2014 because of the Olympics. Full Story

It’s not even August and the award season slate is already jam-packed with likely looking titles like 12 Years a Slave, Mandela, the Tom Hanks double feature of Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks, The Butler, Gravity, The Fifth Estate, The Wolf of Wall Street, Fruitvale Station, Dallas Buyers Club, and if there is a just and loving cinema god, Blackfish will be considered for Best Picture, not just as a documentary. Full Story

Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium was featured on a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly. Jess Cagle writes in the editor’s note that many of the box office disappointments this year were unoriginal movies. Even the ones who weren’t sequels, like The Lone Ranger and After Earth, were basically just recycled versions of the stars’ previous releases. Full Story

When I wrote about the first Snowpiercer trailer (there is now a second one that is only slightly more illuminating), I mentioned that The Weinstein Company bought it, and that if it caught Harvey Weinstein’s eye, it had to be more than just the action movie the trailer was making it out to be. Full Story
