Rachel McAdams was in Boston a couple of weeks ago. At the time, Emma Stone was in town too, visiting her friend Jennifer Lawrence who was working on a movie with Bradley Cooper. I posted a Girlcrushes article about it here wondering and hoping that it was something to look forward to. Full Story

I’m kind of wondering what Alexander Skarsgard’s career management plan looks like. On the one hand, he’s jumping off a successful cable show into films and taking supporting roles in movies like The East and Melancholia and What Maisie Knew, but on the other hand he books into would-be blockbusters like Battleship and a live-action Tarzan adaptation. Full Story

Yesterday when I wrote about the Elysium trailer I said that making good sci-fi is hard. It’s just a big pit of vipers and the vipers are named things like Exposition and Logic and Narrative Mandate. Good sci-fi requires a huge amount of behind-the-scenes planning, the majority of which will never actually be used in the final product (be it movie or book), but the rules and laws of the world created need to make some kind of sense. Full Story

Please don’t let Elysium be disappointing like Prometheus

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 10, 2013 14:50:25 April 10, 2013 14:50:25

Was there a bigger let down last year than Prometheus? All the hype, is-it-Alien/is-it-not-Alien, the series of good trailers and stellar viral marketing, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender AND Idris Elba in a movie together, and then…it kind of sucked. A lot. Sci-fi is hard. Full Story

Liberace was Gay Boogyman

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

Captain America 2 is basically justifying Scarlett Johansson’s paycheck

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 9, 2013 14:20:13 April 9, 2013 14:20:13

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 4, 2013 21:27:16 April 4, 2013 21:27:16

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
