Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck is currently the top choice to play Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s 3D interpretation of The Great Gatsby. Like it or don’t like it? Well, Tom is a smug bastard. Ben can definitely do smug bastard. I can see that. Full Story

Superhero Supernova

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Written by Sarah It’s an apocalypse of superheroes: four movies in less than three months and more on the way. You might think it’s all just nerdery, but there are bigger implications for the movie industry. It’s not just the money involved—though there is a lot of money involved—it’s what it could mean for studios if these movies work out. Full Story

Kat Dennings x 2

One of my favourites. Kat Dennings is promising and unusual among the generic, and not seen enough which is why I want to see her more and on May 6th, you can see her, twice, at the movies, as she has a supporting role in Thor, and a starring role in Daydream Nation, the screenplay for which was on the 2009 “Black List”, the now infamous annual compilation of the best unproduced screenplays. Full Story

Rachel McAdams is at home in Toronto. And last night she was at the Horseshoe Tavern for the Old 97s show. Here she is outside with a few friends. So beautiful. Am told from people inside that she was glowing, that in person she was even more gorgeous. I know what you’re about to ask: is she still with Michael Sheen?!?!? They haven’t been papped together since February when he took her home to Wales after travelling together to Ireland. Full Story

Brad Pitt’s great bob

The Jolie is off on a humanitarian mission. Brad Pitt then is back in LA looking after their children. He apparently took them to the movies the other day, and last night he went out for dinner with a friend (man). This is one of those rare occasions when Brad’s gait, and he has a great gait, isn’t photographed at its best. Full Story

Errr… I feel like I may have been reading a different book series. Lionsgate confirmed today that they’ve chosen the two male leads in The Hunger Games films: Josh Hutcherson will play Peeta, Liam Hemsworth Gale. Sarah from Cinesnark Full Story

The Hangover 2 Trailer

Here’s what I like about it: I like opening with Kanye West. I like looking at Bradley Cooper all sweaty, with shades on, and an open neck shirt, walking in slow motion in front of two other guys. I also like some of Ed Helms’s reactions. And when Galifianakis says “PF Chang’s”, I laughed. Full Story

Ryan is thin

Definitely thinner lately, right? Just me? Ryan Reynolds was in Vegas for CinemaCon yesterday to promote The Green Lantern (with Blake Lively, more on her later) and to collect his award for Male Star of the Year. As you can see, he has a new shorter haircut. I’m telling you, his face looks a lot more drawn. Full Story
