The Chicago International Film Festival kicked off last night, and over the next couple weeks I’ll be reviewing some festival season stragglers, beginning with the opening night film, Miss Julie, which blew chunks. But first we need to talk about Colin Farrell, who was on hand along with writer/director Liv Ullmann to introduce the film. Full Story

The Imitation Game opened the London Film Festival the other night and Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley showed up looking all kinds of glamorous. Cumberbatch is at his best in Sherlock drag, but the suit porn is good, too, and this is some prime suit porn. If Cumberbatch is your flavor, then you’ll enjoy these photos as they’re like the double-chocolate malt equivalent of The Batch. Full Story

Which is, honestly, more interesting to me than his wedding. New York Comic Con is underway, and while it isn’t as important from an industry perspective as San Diego Comic-Con, it is rising in prominence thanks to some high-profile projects that have eschewed Hall H for New York’s west side. Full Story

Too easy. And besides, the only commentary that will matter on these photos will be Michael K’s of Dlisted.com so I’ll just give you the straight description direct from the photo agency: “John Travolta shows his dedication to his craft as he films night scenes for his new movie Life on the Line on October 7, 2014 in Vancouver, Canada. Full Story

Somewhere between bulking up with The Rock and running away from giant (extinct) Hasbro toys, Mark Wahlberg lost 60 pounds. Did you notice? He wanted you to notice. In a new interview with USA Today Full Story

The BFI London Film Festival is underway and one of England’s proudest achievements this year is The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley. The press conference and photo call happened today. Keira’s dress… F-ck. It’s ALWAYS Keira’s dress, isn’t it? Valentino, red, pleats, pockets, perfect. Full Story

Mae Whitman stars in The Duff, an upcoming movie for which you need to know two pertinent pieces of information:  first, it’s based on a book written by an author, Kody Keplinger, who was 17 at the time of publication; second, and the one you’ll hear most about, is that “Duff” stands for “Designated Ugly Fat Friend”. Full Story

Okay, now that we’ve talked about the Marvel can of worms RDJ has opened up, let’s move on to how delightful RDJ is in general, which is SO DELIGHTFUL. First, there’s his appearance on The Howard Stern Show in which he talked about Sarah Jessica Parker. Stern is pushing, trying to get RDJ to say something click-baity about SJP, but RDJ (if only they stayed together for the combined acronyms!) is too smooth to get suckered. Full Story

Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried were filmed kissing on the set of Ted 2 today. Emily, our site coordinator, sent me these photos in an email with the title “This creeps me out”. It’s true. I don’t want to see them kissing. It’s not that I don’t want to see them kissing anyone. Full Story

Deadline reported yesterday that NBC was moving ahead with a TV show based on Say Anything. It’s 10 years later but also 2014. (I don’t understand either, but OK.) Lloyd is single because Diane dumped him but now she’s coming back into town and he tries to get her back. Full Story

Here's Bradley Cooper arriving in London. Hair's getting long. Since the American Sniper trailer came out people have now added it to the Oscar long list of contenders. That happens any time Clint Eastwood directs a movie. He's not young anymore, that guy. And it'll be his second directorial release this year. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence covers Vanity Fair

Sh-t I just realised. It’s mid-October already. Which means Mockingjay Part 1 comes out in just over a month. So we should be getting a lot of Jennifer Lawrence on press tour, starting with the cover of Vanity Fair. It’s the first time she’s been interviewed extensively since the nude photo hack. Full Story

But no Jake & Rachel…at least not yet. A thoughtful Jake Gyllenhaal was working on Demolition at Coney Island yesterday shooting some scenes on his own before frolicking on the beach with co-star Naomi Watts. God he is handsome. And even though I know f-ck all about superheroes, I agree with Sarah’s wish-list for Dr Strange now that Joaquin Phoenix has dropped out. Full Story
