The Time Traveller's Wife...but better

The book was good. The movie was sh-t. Really, really terrible. When was the last time you saw a good romance? A proper romance. Not a romantic scene in a movie that isn't a romance but a movie that's intended to be romantic. Or a romantic comedy. It's been a while. I've been waiting a while. Full Story

Was Katie Holmes allowed to be properly romantic in a movie while she was married to Tom Cruise? Her movies were so sh-t when she was married to Tom Cruise, I didn’t bother. Did you? If so, please tell me. Also, how did you make it through Jack & Jill? Here she is on the set of Mania Days in New York today with Luke Kirby. Full Story

The Artist’s “public persona”

James Franco covers the new comedy issue of GQ because he stars in the upcoming This Is The End. Why are only Apatow people considered for comedy prime coverage? So now he’s a comedian too, in addition to being an actor, director, painter, poet, and academic... Have I missed anything? Maybe illusionist? Master manipulator? No, no, no. Full Story

Check out this new poster for Catching Fire. Katniss is almost mythological now. The movie isn’t due until November 22 but I hear things are going well in post and they’re working on adding special effects and music right now to the full cut of the film. Apparently preproduction for the third and fourth installments will start in June and possible shooting locations include Atlanta, Detroit, and Paris. Full Story

I left Toronto for Vegas on Friday for The Hangover 3 junket. Those interviews will air on ETALK over the next couple of weeks. My flight back to Vancouver wasn’t until Sunday but many of the reporters left on Saturday to head straight to New Orleans for the Now You See Me junket. Several of them had already screened it prior to the trip because of the Hangover overlap and almost all of them told me it’s really, really good. Full Story

Armie Hammer was in Tokyo today promoting The Lone Ranger all by himself. But you know how the Japanese feel about Johnny Depp. Johnny is shooting Transcendence in LA right now and couldn’t make it. I’m sure they’ll have him back at a later date. Johnny’s actually pretty fun when he goes to Japan. Full Story

I know you’re out there, Matt Smith/Dr Who fans. And now you get to make out with the Ryan Gosling fans. Here they are, in Detroit on the set of Gosling’s How To Catch A Monster the other day. As you can see, Ryan is helping Matt “find the motivation”. Part of that motivation came from a total head buzz. Full Story

Sandra Bullock + George Clooney in Gravity. It was shot a while ago. And it was supposed to be released last fall but was pushed back a year. Sometimes that’s a bad sign. And that was the presumption in this case. Now a teaser trailer has been released and the reaction has been solid. Gravity is directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Full Story

That was the most excellent term Simon Pegg coined to describe the shivery feeling people get around Benedict Cumberbatch. It came up in this terrible interview, which is worth a watch for how thoroughly Pegg dominates it and how quick he is off the cuff. Full Story

Tom Cruise was in Beijing yesterday promoting Oblivion. As you now know, the Chinese movie market is a big deal now. Not only for the money they make but also for, um, the money they steal. Iron Man 3 was released in China a day before North America. They say it was a smart decision so as to reduce the piracy situation. Full Story

Moms around the internet, we love you. You work so hard, those of us without kids quite literally have no idea how you do it. I, specifically, am in awe of your ability to not get blackout drunk at least once a week. It’s such incredible work and it seems that to celebrate, the Universe and Zac Efron have conspired to give a little something back to the straight mamas, and the lesbi-mums who like to look at pretty boys. Full Story
