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

Check out brand new shots of Tom Hardy in costume as a Russian officer on location in the Czech Republic on Sunday with Noomi Rapace shooting a new movie called Child 44. Does he make movies without Noomi anymore? Does Noomi make movies without him, or a lookalike of him (Logan Marshall-Green) anymore? Although he looks really pale and pasty, I don’t mind my Tom Hardy in uniform. Full Story

Brange went to Tokyo to promote In The Land Of Blood And Honey and World War Z. They had three of their six kids with them – Pax, Vivienne, and Knox. Again… HOWWWWWWWWWW is it decided? WHOOOOOO makes the decision? Is it a family vote? Is it because Miss Zahara shrugged from the boredom of having already been to Japan a few times before? It is because the Chosen One Shiloh would rather stay home and play MMA fighters with her big brother Maddox? Anyway, as you can see, in addition to bringing half their brood, Brange also brought the Pitt Porn to Tokyo. Full Story

Keanu Reeves’ long-awaited samurai epic 47 Ronin finally has a trailer and it’s AWFUL. It’s an awful trailer for an awful looking movie. I wish I had a word beyond “awful” both for how terrible the trailer is and how terrible the movie looks.   Let’s tackle the trailer first, starting with the interstitial cards that read “An outcast…exiled,” which is redundant as “outcast” and “exiled” are synonymous. Full Story

He’s the right age. He’s the right build. He’s hot. But he’s also not interested. US Weekly reports that Garrett Hedlund has passed on becoming Christian Grey for the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey because he didn’t want to be locked into a trilogy which… I mean, if it’s really the “role every actor wants”, so what’s the problem with playing it three times? Well, Aaron Johnson recently said Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio started dating his girlfriend Toni Garrn, a model (did you need me to say that?) in Cannes. So we’re two months into their relationship. Here they are after dinner in Beverly Hills this week. Lukas Haas was with them too, of course. I don’t feel like paying for pictures of Lukas though which I suppose sums up his situation. Full Story

I read an article this morning where a woman wrote that consuming Sex And The City as a teenager set up her and her friends for unrealistic expectations where sex was concerned. That in turn made them receptive and hungry when Girls came to present a different view. Full Story

There are a lot of cities represented in this set of Scarlett Johansson photos. Scarjo flew out of LAX yesterday wearing a Yankees cap and a Paris sweatshirt. As you can see, Scarjo is on my Five List. As you can see, this is why. Because she looks SO HOT in these shots, casual in skinny jeans, no makeup, and chipped nail polish. Full Story

In a rumor that amazingly did not come from an Onion article, MTV’s Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin is supposedly up for the role of Batman in the Man of Steel sequel to be titled either Superman vs. Batman or Batman vs. Superman, depending on which tests better with adolescent males. Wait, let’s back this up and give it a minute to sink in. Full Story

Variety reported yesterday that Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor are currently negotiating roles in the upcoming Mortdecai film adaptation starring Johnny Depp. It’s about a badass art dealer (Depp, obviously) who’s looking for a painting with links to Nazi gold. Full Story
