Charlize Theron took Jackson to the doctor’s office today for a checkup. I want those pants. But look... You can tell especially in the shots from the back... She buzzed her head! Charlize is due in Namibia soon to start shooting Mad Max Fury Road with Tom Hardy. I’ve no doubt this explains her hair. Full Story

Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund were in New York yesterday. God he is so much hotter now that he’s with her. I can’t stop saying this... And here’s your Catching Fire update: I’m told that Hedlund auditioned for the part of Finnick in Catching Fire for director Francis Lawrence about 10 days ago. Full Story

Prometheus mostly worked

I said last week that I wasn’t really feeling the Prometheus hype, that sci-fi isn’t really my bag and I was struggling to get interested in it despite a top-notch cast. But I also thought that, because I wasn’t on the crazy hype wagon, I might actually get to enjoy it because I wasn’t expecting a transformative movie experience. Full Story

I wish all the girls could have been there last night at the Shirley MacLaine AFI event. Still, it was enough to make me want to watch it right now. Maybe tonight. Maybe Jacek will go out and leave me alone to cry at the television and I can put the True Blood screeners on hold until tomorrow. Duana and I just texted back and forth about this. Full Story

Cornball. Can’t believe I wrote that. Moving on. Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year, I know a lot of you have been all over Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. I haven’t been that anxious for it, which is weird, because the cast is pretty much a bunch of people I wholeheartedly support. Full Story

Captain America 2 might be funny?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 7, 2012 17:57:03 June 7, 2012 17:57:03

 I worried for Captain America, a lot. Of all of Marvel’s pre-Avengers movies, that’s the one I had the most concern about. The challenge with Cap is that Steve Rogers is the boringest superhero ever. It’s like Lainey says about Game of Thrones all the time—there’s only so much drama when you know a character will always, unfailingly do the right thing. Full Story

Django’s first trailer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 6, 2012 20:45:27 June 6, 2012 20:45:27

As I’ve been saying for a while now... this is the movie I’m waiting for. More than The Dark Knight Rises, more than anything else, even Les Miserables, it’s Django Unchained. Advance footage from the film, opening in December, was screened in Cannes. In comparison this trailer is. Full Story

Annie gives me another excuse

When I was 19 I had my hair cut like this. Maybe even shorter. Then all 4 of my wisdom teeth came out and I lost a lot of weight. My mother said I was horrifying. She didn’t want our relatives to come over because she thought they’d spread rumours that I’d contracted AIDS. What? I haven’t mentioned before that my mother is ignorant? I really, really hated my hair then, not because my mother called it AIDS hair, but because I wanted to love it so much and it just wasn’t right for me. Full Story

Cut away to Emma Watson

I love cutaways to Emma Watson during a live show. She’s either dancing or laughing or scowling and giving someone attitude but it’s NEVER BORING. Last night was no exception. Right off the top during We Are Young she was all over it. The dress is good. But it’s so busy I wish she would have chosen a pair of simpler shoes. Full Story

Tomorrow will be exactly two weeks since my Summer Crush started on Tom Hardy. Lorella messaged me this morning to say “congratulations”. My Summer Crushes haven’t made it past 10 days in a long time. And considering this beard, that’s an accomplishment. Full Story

Is this your Finnick?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 1, 2012 16:56:16 June 1, 2012 16:56:16

E! News reported the other day that Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer were on the short list to play Finnick in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Multiple sources tell me that Armie Hammer is far and away the first choice of director Francis Lawrence. Full Story
