As I wrote last week, Winter’s Tale is about an orphan called Peter whose best friend is a white horse and he falls in love with a sick girl, Beverly. Here’s Colin Farrell as Peter, on his white horse, riding around with Lady Sybil as Beverly, who has long wavy red hair that blows elegantly in the wind, and they’re surrounded by autumn leaves in Central Park and they’re being chased by a dark spirit, over logs and ravines, and with her arms wrapped around his waist, breathing in his earthy woody scent, she feels safe, despite the proximity of the danger, even as the score quickens during the scene. Full Story

This week it was the directors’ turn to roundtable with The Hollywood Reporter. Last week Maria wrote about the Actress Roundtable, pointing out that Anne Hathaway is like jazz hands through the entire video. Click here for a refresher. Have you watched the directors? Ben Affleck, to me, is like Anne Hathaway among the directors. Full Story

In the wake of the monster success of The Avengers, Warner Brothers announced they will be bringing DC Comics’ own superhero super group, the Justice League, to the big screen. (Hilariously, they will attempt to do this in the same year that The Avengers 2 comes out.)  The Justice League includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, the Green Lantern and Aquaman, three of which have already been or are soon to be introduced in solo movies. Full Story

Look at you, you sneaky motherf-cker. The Spirit Award nominations were announced on November 27 and in all the debate about Silver Linings Playbook and whether or not it should have been considered and if Harvey Weinstein bullied them into it, Matthew McConaughey’s two nominations seemed to be overlooked: Best Actor in Killer Joe Best Supporting Actor in Magic Mike Sarah went balls out and predicted Full Story

At least, that’s the impression the world premiere in Wellington yesterday gives. The red carpet was over 500 yards, running the length of several city blocks, and the crowd was estimated at 100,000. The cast arrived earlier in the week in a plane plastered with the faces of hobbits and dwarves, there was a “hobbit artisanal market” in downtown Wellington in the days before the premiere and thousands of people actually went there; the airport now has a giant Gollum sculpture Full Story

Beasts Of The Southern Wild will be released on DVD next week, on December 4th. Have you seen it? I highly, highly recommend. Now this is the work of an exciting new director. His name is Benh Zeitlin and his leading lady might be nominated for an Oscar. It looks like they’re working hard, on what has to be a limited budget, to make that happen. Full Story

This post is for me, because I know you don’t care. Why don’t you care about Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb? There’s a reason Sam Rockwell works so much. And it’s because he’s GOOD. He just doesn’t need it to be in your face all the time, which I love, and I love too that she wasn’t famewhoring about her love life, hanging around, trying to bag a Ben Affleck type who could elevate her by getting her pregnant. Full Story

At the premiere of my favourite movie of the year in Tokyo tonight as they make their way around the world, closer and closer to Christmas Day, as we wait impatiently ... At The Barricade! And then en route to Hollywood & Highland, the Dolby Theatre to fight it out with Argo and Lincoln. Since its screenings last weekend, according to expert “Oscarologist” predictions, Les Miserables has moved ahead of Argo and Lincoln. Full Story

Jesse Eisenberg was photographed riding his bike in New York yesterday. What a great face. What a great nose. How much press did Jesse do for To Rome With Love? I feel like it wasn’t much. Because I forgot he was in that movie. I was about to say we haven’t seen him at the movies in a while, which, I guess, considering not many people saw To Rome With Love, is half true. Full Story

Another month! We have to wait almost another month! Turns out Blake Lively’s Martha Stewart Wedding won’t be on newsstands until December 24th which ... might make your family more tolerable during the holidays? No doubt the magazine will release a few select images, including the cover I imagine, in advance of the release but the opportunity to flip through the entire spread, and we will do this, meticulously right?, will not happen until Christmas Eve. Full Story
