Well that got your attention, didn’t it?I don’t know why Joel McHale was moderating the Haywire Q&A after the secret screening of the movie at AFI Fest the other night. Like, he’s the star of his own hit cult comedy...But if you are fan - yes, I can hear you Duana - you probably love him that much more for it, right? Also, Haywire was directed by Steven Soderbergh who also directed The Informant and McHale was in The Informant although I’m pretty sure he’s not in Haywire. Full Story

I guess we should have seen this coming, with the worldwide popularity of the royal wedding this past spring and our obsession with the Cambridges, that there would be a rash of princess-themed movies in the wake of that interest. First it was Grace of Monaco Full Story

Katie Holmes’s last movie before she met and married Tom Cruise was Thank You For Smoking. It was good. And then... Mad Money, The Romantics, The Extra Man, and most recently Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark and The Son Of No One, both of which were not well reviewed. None of them were, actually. Next up: Jack & Jill with Adam Sandler. Full Story

A handy list of actors who think you’re stupid

That’s what Forbes should have called their list of “Hollywood’s most overpaid stars”. In and of itself, there’s nothing wrong with commercial filmmaking. It’s not a completely soulless endeavor, it’s just that it’s frustrating when movies consistently get made to the lowest common denominator and people with actual talent squander it repeatedly on trash. Full Story

Lainey emailed me about the first promotional image of Warm Bodies, a bit confused about the plot, and wanted me to write about it, because, as she said, I have a “PhD in zombie”. Of course my first thought was, Oh my god I WISH I could get a real PhD in zombie. The ball’s in your court, universities. Full Story

Well, I guess it’s a better than Quantum of Solace. Still... Skyfall isn’t lighting me on fire on originality, you know? Skyfall is the title of a Tom Cruise movie. Tom Cruise would be really, really excited about something called Skyfall. Which is the next Bond.They announced it at a photo call today in London. Full Story

Remember when Taylor Lautner met with Gus Van Sant and Dustin Lance Black for dinner last month? A writer, a director and an actor at a table together can only mean one thing—they’re working together. Or, at least Lautner and Van Sant are. The Hollywood Reporter just announced that they’re setting up a project together, based on a New Yorker article Lautner’s production company optioned. Full Story

Steve Carell and Jim Carrey are teaming up in a comedy about rival magicians called Burt Wonderstone (doesn’t that sound like a Will Ferrell character?), and the short list for the female lead is the randomest group of actresses I’ve seen in a long time—Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer, Jessica Biel and Sarah Silverman. Full Story

Justin Timberlake simply doesn’t sell at the movies the way he sells records. IN TIME was not certified platinum. IN TIME, with Pipsqueak firmly in the lead, was nowhere near gold either. Or silver. So he still has yet to prove that he can carry a movie. As you know though, that ego, it doesn’t take well to rejection and failure. Full Story
