Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, and director Len Wiseman were in Mexico yesterday for Summer of Sony to promote Total Recall opening in August which is interesting to me because, as I’ve been reporting Jessica’s fiancé, Justin Timberlake, is being seriously considered to play the part of Gypsy Husband in the film adaptation of Emma Forrest’s Your Voice In My Head based quite obviously on Forrest’s ex Colin Farrell. Full Story

It’s almost here, my favorite time of year. Summer movie season is a four month holiday for industry watchers. It’s all insanity and nervousness. There’s so much on the line—so much money, so many connotations for people’s careers. If you’re into blow-by-blow previews, I do monthly rundowns on Cinesnark Full Story

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, along with other members of The Amazing Spider-Man team, including that prick Rhys Ifans, were in Mexico yesterday promoting the movie at the Summer of Sony event. I love her blouse and that tricked out collar. I LOVE it. I also love that they’re not super precious about their relationship and who sees them holding and hands and not hiding about it or ducking under parked cars. Full Story

My interviews with The Avengers from the weekend junket will be airing on etalk all week. Proper reviews are still embargoed but apparently the geeks are more than satisfied with what Joss Whedon has accomplished. Like we’re talking mega nerd approval. Me I have no idea what the nerds want. What I wanted was more than just special effects and explosions. Full Story

Was it?No idea.But Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel are best friends so at some point, there had to be an invitation over to the Afflecks for barbeque, right? And since Ben is such a respected director now, Justin Timberlake would have been all over that. Justin Timberlake totally wanted to be in The Town. Full Story

Many of you have emailed to ask the last couple of months whether or not Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson are still together because there have been no pictures.

But before we get to Leo, who spent the weekend in Mexico promoting Sony’s upcoming Django Unchained, can we talk about the first poster for Django Unchained? Which does not actually SAY the words “Django Unchained”?Or Leonardo DiCaprio?Or Jamie Foxx?No, right now, Django Unchained is all about the Tarantino and everything that comes with the Tarantino. Full Story

Emma Watson kept her hair short for, what was it?, like two years? She cut it right after she’d completed her work on Harry Potter, almost as though she was symbolically separating herself from a character she’d played for a decade. And it worked. For a long time, the Emma Watson in my mind’s eye was the gamine with the pixie cut. Full Story

But will they dance by the fire again?

It was reported the other day that Angelina Jolie was considering a cameo in an upcoming Ridley Scott movie starring Michael Fassbender called The Counselor. I wrote at the time (click here for a refresher) that it was a tabloid dream come true, driving Michael’s considerable girth between the Jolie and Brad Pitt. Full Story

It’s crept up on me slowly, but for the last six weeks or so, I’ve thought that Battleship, the movie based on a boardgame, would surprise people. Sure, it looks big and dumb and loud and it reminds me of Transformers in less-than-flattering ways, but it kind of looks fun. Succeeding in summer is often not so much about quality storytelling or acting but about quality fun. Full Story

Eddie Redmayne was photographed today in Greenwich on the set of Les Miserables. Marius!Amanda Seyfried is Cosette, right? God there’s been so much casting back and forth on this project I can barely keep track except to say that Taylor Swift is for sure not in it. I imagine they really have to get through outdoor shooting quickly before England gets taken over by Olympic preparation. Full Story
