Moonrise Kingdom opened the Cannes Film Festival. I loved it. SO MUCH. A Wes Anderson movie with heart? Indeed. There’s a lack of his usual detachment here that has been replaced by an emotion that lives closer to affection. And the critics agree. Moonrise Kingdom is scoring at 95% on Rotten Tomatoes at press time and 85% on Metacritic. Full Story

Holy Motors was my favourite film of Cannes 2012. What’s it about? I don’t actually know. It’s a giant mind f-ck that I can’t wait to see again and again. We can love what we can’t understand, can’t we? Kylie Minogue is in it. And Eva Mendes. Does that make you mad? That Eva Mendes is involved in something (good) that people keep talking about? People are predicting Holy Motors will win the Palme d’Or. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence was photographed on Wednesday with her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult in London. They were on their way to see a show. Cute, right?It’s been a busy stretch for Lawrence. For a long time, actually. You know about The Hunger Games. And she’s been working with Bradley Cooper on a film called Serena. Full Story

Jessica Biel has been trying to produce and star in a movie called The Devil In The Deep Blue Sea (terrible title) for a while now. At least 18 months if not longer. The project was going nowhere. Then this week it was announced from Cannes that the project had finally found financing and that her fiancé soon husband will score and supervise the soundtrack. Full Story

I was worried about Garrett Hedlund after seeing TRON: Legacy. That was not a good movie. And he... wasn’t good in it. But he didn’t seem in a hurry to do much else after Country Strong. After seeing On The Road, now I know why. Whoever is managing his career was confident enough in what Hedlund delivered, knowing that once people see this performance, new opportunities would present themselves soon enough. Full Story

Marvelous Benedict Cumberbatch

Could not resist. So Benedict Cumberbatch has been hanging around Marvel since late last year, prompting a lot of talk about what he’s doing and the inevitability of his involvement with one of their properties. The natural assumption—mine included—was that he would play Dr. Strange. Because if Cumberbatch was ever going to go superhero, it would have to be the guy called Strange. Full Story

A teaser for The Master was released the other day, now The Great Gatsby, and I wonder if we’ll be getting something soon from Les Miserables, or perhaps even Django Unchained, seeing as some of the early hyped so-called award contenders seem to be flexing themselves this week. Many of you have written asking for commentary on the first preview for Baz Luhrmann’s 3D remake. Full Story

YES.That Marchesa she wore at the London premiere of Snow White And The Huntsman was horsesh-t. Click here if you need a reminder and want to shudder. But I wondered at the time if she was saving her load for her first splash at Cannes. Check out Stewart at the On The Road photo call today in Balenciaga pants. Full Story

Joaquin Phoenix Travolta

It’s been less than 3 months since Oscar. And that conversation is starting up again. I guess whenever Paul Thomas Anderson makes a movie though... I love that Anderson is married to Maya Rudolph. Maya by the way grew up with Gwyneth Paltrow. And Gwyneth was in Anderson’s Hard Eight way back in the 90s, the emerging artist. Full Story

With a little Sonny Crockett, right? I know some of you aren’t feeling it. Me, I’d be so much more into it... but for that gold chain around his right wrist. If not for that gold chain, I’m buying. It’s probably the white belt. I am predisposed to liking a white belt on a man; I think it reminds me of golf. Full Story
