Long-time victim of serial creator abuse, Star Wars, the plucky and beloved hero of generations of moviegoers, is reported to be in serious but stable condition at Disney Pictures in Burbank, California after Disney boss Bob Iger announced that, after being informed of the extent of abuse occurring at George Lucas’s remote Skywalker Ranch, he has successfully managed to break Star Wars away from the cycle of victimization and degradation it has suffered over the years at Lucas’s hands. Full Story

In Smutty Tingles on October 19 I wrote that I was “very curious about the box office for this Gerard Butler movie”. Gerard Butler makes a lot of movies. But none of his movies perform well enough to justify why he gets so many movies. Full Story

Skyfall is getting great reviews. Some people, prone to hyperbole, are even proclaiming that Skyfall is so great, it qualifies as the best Bond ever. They’ll be fighting over that forever. Let’s just agree then that Skyfall is better than the disappointing Quantum Of Solace and returns to the standard of Casino Royale which (come on, can we not fight about this one?) was awesome. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was in Spain for a day to promote Boss Nuit for Hugo Boss. She wore black leather at a photo call and then orange/red on the variety show El Hormiguero. Am underwhelmed by both outfits, particularly the bright dress although the shoes she has on with it are pretty badass in how they somehow found a way to class up Shauna Sand. Full Story

This is Jim Sturgess at the LA premiere of Cloud Atlas last night getting ready for Movember I guess? Or a movie role? The moustache doesn’t bother me. There’s something else that bothers me more. Lately I’ve been hearing here and there that Jim and his long-time girlfriend Mickey O’Brien are no longer together. Full Story

For those of you - all of you -- who don’t remember, his name is Alexander Ludwig and he played Cato in The Hunger Games. It appears as though he’s working from the book of Jena Malone and Sam Claflin -- this is turning out to be a rather enterprising cast, isn’t it? -- and self-starting a campaign to be selected for the coveted role of Four in Divergent. Full Story

The Long Dark Tea Time of Tony Stark’s Soul

Lainey is already panicking about Iron Man 3, convinced from the new trailer that Pepper Potts will die and Tony Stark will be SO SAD and that this will be a super depressing superhero movie. This is the reason I’ve been excited for Extremis since it was confirmed at Comic Con Full Story

Winona Ryder continues to work on Homefront in New Orleans. Here she is smoking out of her trailer and then heading to set with a copy of Meth & Method and a New Yorker. The film is about Jason Statham not getting on with a meth dealer played by James Franco. Bless the girl, she’s doing her research which means, um, she must not be familiar with Jason Statham movies. Full Story

And you should be ready for it. We’ll save the nerd breakdown (nerd down?) for tomorrow when the first full trailer for Iron Man 3 is released, but today we’ve got a seventeen second teaser that, though brief, clearly says, YES, SH*T JUST GOT REAL. It also says, WE WILL STUNT YOUR FACE OFF. Full Story

Sherlock was honoured by the Crime Thriller Awards last night in London. Here’s Benedict Cumberbatch at the event. He won Best Actor. They hand out knives encased in glass instead of trophies. I have to ask my ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, to be sure but I feel like that would be bad luck, giving out knives meant as congratulations and especially putting them up around your home. Full Story

Click here to read my review of Divergent and here for Insurgent. I am obsessed with the story. They started on the screenplay last year. Now I guess they must be closer because Deadline Full Story
