Tonight is the premiere of Seth Rogen’s and James Franco’s new movie, The Interview, in which they play entertainment reporters attempting to assassinate Kim Jong-un. North Korea is unhappy about the existence of this movie, and many people assume it’s the impetus behind the Sony Hack, but so far, no conclusive evidence Full Story

This was not the way the week was expected to go for Angelina Jolie. No Golden Globes. And she gets implicated in the Sony email leak. AND Jennifer Aniston gets a SAG nomination and an invitation to the Beverly Hilton by the HFPA. It’s rare. Because the way the Jolie plays it, things usually go her way. Full Story

SAG nomination yesterday, Golden Globe nomination today – Jake Gyllenhaal’s chances at an Oscar nomination are looking better and better. Bradley Cooper’s are not. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has given us a lot of WTF moments over the years. I’m not sure if the Brange and Unbroken shutout qualifies as a standard HFPA WTF the way The Tourist did, or, you know, Pia Zadora. Full Story

Sarah messaged me right when I was coming off The Social this afternoon OMGing about the new Mad Max trailer. I pressed play as soon as I got back to my desk and wrote her back: Holy sh-t. HOLY SH-T. This is the best looking and best sounding trailer I’ve seen in…years. Now just to go back for a minute to the Sony email leaks – it was widely reported that production on Mad Max was troubled. Full Story

The redband trailer for the upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service has been released. Colin Firth plays a Bond type. He recruits and trains a new member of the Secret Service – a punk kid who looks like he could have been in Skins. It’s a comedy. And … I’m into it. SO into it. Full Story

Check out Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones at the premiere of The Theory Of Everything in London last night, an early celebration for their double SAG nominations this morning. Triple, actually, because the film was also nominated for Best Ensemble. Have you seen it? SEE IT. I love this movie. It was my favourite at TIFF. Full Story

We’ve been speculating for weeks about that fifth Best Actor spot, assuming that Michael Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, and Steve Carell would be in for four. And we’ve seen Jake Gyllenhaal surging. Well, he’s almost there. The Screen Actors have sent him an invitation. Full Story

Did Jennifer Aniston stay up late last night, reading and re-reading every email leaked in the Sony hack, especially the parts where Scott Rudin sh-ts on Angelina Jolie? Did it get even better when she woke up this morning – or maybe she didn’t sleep at all – to learn that…holy sh-t, she’s been nominated for a SAG? She did it. Full Story

The Sony hack is the gift that keeps on giving. First it was a laundry list of reasons why making Adam Sandler movies was slowly crushing people’s souls, and now it’s a series of email exchanges between Sony co-chief Amy Pascal, producer Scott Rudin, Aaron Sorkin, and some agents that’s providing a window into the breakdown of a major production deal. Full Story

The first trailer for New New Star Wars came out a couple weeks ago and is crushing records on its way to being the most viewed trailer of all time. Trailers are still the #1 indicator for a movie’s potential audience, and based on the stats for New New Star Wars and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the biggest movie of 2015 is going to be the one in which Mickey Mouse counts all of the money in the world while laughing maniacally Full Story

All that matters is Meryl

Into The Woods New York premiere last night. Meryl Streep was there. This is all that matters. And look at her. I love this outfit. I love it even more than she didn’t pass her handbag off to an assistant and kept it with her on the carpet. The handbag is a proper handbag too. Not an accessory clutch, not a stylish cigarette and lipstick holder but an over-the-shoulder, gets in the way of posing if you’re Victoria Beckham BAG. Full Story

Not engaged. NOT engaged. I just want to make that clear because most headlines you’ve read this morning will probably say that he IS engaged. But he’s NOT engaged. It was a prank. Because this is what happens when Joaquin Phoenix appears on David Letterman. He either pretends he’s retiring and f-cked up and on the verge of a breakdown or he tells a story about falling in love with his yoga instructor. Full Story
