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

Jeremy Renner kicks major ass

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 1, 2012 16:38:54 June 1, 2012 16:38:54

I’m loyal to Jeremy Renner. Ask Lainey. I’ll defend him to the mattresses. Why? He pinged on my radar years ago, way before his big break, before SWAT even, back when he was knocking around town, getting drunk and singing in bars (listen, that dude can SING). Renner is the best kind of crazy—wildly fun, knows everyone, throws the kind of parties that lead to you having Nutso is busto written on your arm in Sharpie the next day, with no clue what that means. Full Story

Just ignore the talky parts

I was on The Marilyn Dennis Show yesterday talking about summer movies. It’s a predominantly female audience. When Marilyn asked me about Magic Mike I was like... I mean, do you really need to know what it’s about? Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, and the big wolf from True Blood take their shirts off. Full Story

Charlize Theron: Blonde & Blue

Someone must have had a good night’s sleep. How old is Jackson? Do they get through the night without waking up at that age? Because Charlize Theron looked super fresh tonight in London at the Prometheus premiere. I don’t love the sparkly dress on its own. But clothing tends to become something different when she wears it. Full Story

Paparazzi photos of Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood to end the month! Radiohead plays two shows in Newark tonight and tomorrow. Here they are walking around New York enjoying their down time. Joaquin Phoenix meanwhile was in LA yesterday, shooting his new movie at the beach. It’s a Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze project. Full Story
