Liberace was Gay Boogyman

Dean Posted by Dean at April 9, 2013 16:30:52 April 9, 2013 16:30:52

The new trailer is out for Behind The Candelabra, HBO’s biopic about Liberace (Michael Douglas) and his boyfriend (Matt Damon), and damn if it doesn’t look like everything you could want it to be. Douglas playing into his naturally creepy old-man vibe, Matt Damon in a speedo (bonus Rob Lowe bulge!), plus coke, capes, and bathtub drama! A description of this movie reads like a Stefan sketch from SNL ie: Behind The Candelabra’s got everything. Full Story

In the wake of The Avengers bonanza success last summer, we learned  that RDJ raked in—at minimum—fifty million for the film. There was also a rumor that arose in the wake of RDJ’s back-end deal getting exposed that Scarlett Johansson, in order to guarantee her return in The Avengers 2, would be getting a $20 million payday for the next installment in the franchise. Full Story

Ben Kingsley’s the Mandarin is apparently the villain in the upcoming, highly anticipated Iron Man 3. And here’s Iron Man wearing a mandarin style jacket while promoting the film in Beijing this weekend at the Ancestral Imperial Temple. It’s apparently the first time a Hollywood movie has been promoted there. Full Story

This is Jeremy Renner in costume on the set of that David O Russell Abscam movie. Holy sh-t the cast on this film. That’s 13 nominations between actors and the director, spread across 6 people, and 2 wins (Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale). As we saw earlier this week, Bradley Cooper’s perm has been dominating the focus on this project. Full Story

Only God Forgives Ryan Gosling who doesn’t speak

A red band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film, his second in a row with Ryan Gosling, was released online yesterday. As you know, their first collaboration was Drive. Ryan Gosling didn’t talk much in Drive. If this trailer is any indication, he speaks even less in Only God Forgives. Full Story

It’s Robert Downey Jr’s birthday today. He’s 48. And he’s celebrating in Seoul promoting Iron Man 3. I wonder if he’d be willing to fly over to Pyongyang and talk some sense into that child running the North who thinks that life is a video game. Don’t you think that kid would feel so much better if he could hang out with Tony Stark, maybe try on the suit or something? Crisis easily averted. Full Story

It’s been two days since we had our first look at Bradley Cooper’s perm and still it makes me so happy. Here are some new shots of Coop in costume, with the perm, working on the new David O Russell ABSCAM movie in Boston. Coop can totally pull off full 70s, non? Some people, no matter how hard the wardrobe department works to make it happen, some people can only look right in their own era. Full Story

Back In Black with The Great Gatsby

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 4, 2013 14:35:56 April 4, 2013 14:35:56

New trailer for The Great Gatsby just dropped... And you can hear a few bars of Beyonce’s Back To Black cover collaboration with Andre 3000. There’s also Lana Del Ray, and Florence & The Machine. This soundtrack, produced by Jay-Z, is sounding GOOD. The film too is...looking better and better. Full Story

Here she is in London yesterday shooting what I presume is the film adaptation of S J Watson’s book? Have you read it? If we’re talking literary thrillers, I preferred Before I Go To Sleep over Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. Sleep is the creepy version of Drew Barrymore’s 50 First Dates. Full Story
