That’s what all these ads should say. “Please care about us”, and, “Hey we made a superhero movie, too!”Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man, the middle child of the summer superhero titles, is going full-tilt trying to build up interest in the movie that no one particularly wanted. Full Story

Johnny Depp spent the weekend in Japan promoting Dark Shadows. You know they love him there. They come through for him every time there. And he’ll need them to again because, well, The Avengers owns his ass; The Avengers owns everyone’s ass. Dark Shadows opened in second position at the box office this weekend to only $28 million. Full Story

You like it? I don’t like it. Especially since his hair looked so good two weeks ago at CinemaCon - click here for a refresher. Here’s Taylor Kitsch, freshly buzzed, at the LA premiere of Battleship last night. Also attached - Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson, and Brooklyn Decker who is getting completely out-styled by Rihanna every time they step out together. Full Story

Yesterday in New York - here are Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling hand in hand after lunch, not ducking into garbage bins and running for cover in the presence of the paps. Thank you. It’s not ideal, no. But if that’s the sh-ttiest part of their jobs, I appreciate that these two are finally not behaving as though it’s medieval torture. Full Story

In the days leading up to The Avengers release on May 4, the projections were calling for a $150-170 million opening weekend. I thought it would just beat the high side, ending up around $172 million, which would best the previous opening weekend record set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 of $169 million. Full Story

Will Smith and the Men In Black 3 team were in Asia earlier this week to promote the movie. Does he seem really, really animated to you? I mean he’s always super-animated but I feel like this time there’s some extra to his natural all day party. And no, that’s not a reference to anything smutty. I do actually believe Will gets high on Fans! and Fun! He’s reminding me a lot lately of Tom Cruise. Full Story

Chloe Moretz stopped by Letterman yesterday before the Hick screening last night in New York. Some of these expressions, and that turn of her body, does it remind you of someone? I swear in a couple of these thumbnails I thought it was Lindsay Lohan 2006.The style experts are all praisey of Chloe’s “appropriate” outfits. Full Story

Here's Colin Farrell in pyjamas on the set of his new film Dead Man Down in Philadelphia. He looks good, doesn't he?He's been looking for a while. Couple weeks ago in LA I was talking about him, just a general update, with an industry source who told me that Colin is just focused on work right now: "He just wants to work. Full Story

Peter Parker, middle child

I’ve been worried for The Amazing Spider-Man for several months now. Ever since I heard the marketing was being held up in order to recalibrate the approach in the face of underwhelming reaction to the first trailer and marketing push late last year, I’ve wondered if Spider-Man doesn’t suffer from middle child syndrome. Full Story

Already?That really seemed to come fast. It’s May. We’re 3 weeks out (May 25) from the release of Men In Black 3. Which means it’s officially Will Smith selling season. He was joined by Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin today at a photo call for the movie in Beverly Hills. I can’t believe he’s not taking over Independence Day weekend. Full Story

Bond will be funnier

Daniel Craig, new Bond Girls Naomie Harrie, Berenice Marlohe, and the rest of the Bond team including director Sam Mendes attended a photo call in Istanbul yesterday where many previous Bonds have filmed before; it’s apparently Ian Fleming’s “favourite city”. As expected they’ve kept the story for Bond Skyfall pretty locked but some speculate that the relationship between Bond and M is tested when sh-t from her past comes back to f-ck things up. Full Story
