I couldn’t resist!Over the last week there has been rampant speculation about the future of director Gary Ross and the Hunger Games franchise. Early reports were that he was leaving, but then a half-hearted denial from Lionsgate just before Easter weekend made it clear that negotiations were ongoing. Full Story

I wonder if they tried wigging it at all. If they camera tested a few wigs and decided in the end that the wigs just weren’t working before encouraging Annie to cut it all off. Or was it all Annie herself from the very beginning out of artistic commitment? No, let’s not even bother trying the wig. I will do it! (hand in the air) I will sacrifice my hair for Fantine. Full Story

I had such a huge lady crush on Nicole Kidman ten years ago, circa Moulin Rouge. Unlike my lady crush on Lucy Liu, though, the crush on Kidman did not survive the ensuing years and her increasingly frozen face. She made me too sad to crush on her. But maybe Pre-Frozen Nicole is making a comeback. As Entertainment Weekly noted Full Story

I mean, when I see Mark Wahlberg’s mega pecs being directed by Michael Bay, I know FOR SURE that Pain & Gain is a movie that will feature interesting actresses playing interesting characters. Pain & Gain is a real(ish) account of a group of muscleheads extorting a rich dude (Tony Shalhoub) and the sh-t that goes down when they f-ck it all up. Full Story

The poster for Oliver Stone’s Savages has been released. As you can see, Blake Lively is front and very centre, all hot and open-mouthed and tattooed and suppliant. Intriguing that we only see Aaron Johnson’s face behind a mask. As already reported, several times, Savages was supposed to open in September but has been moved up to July by a very confident Universal. Full Story

Tom Cruise works the stage

Look, I loved the first Rock Of Ages trailer. Sorry, but I love the second one just as much. And this time... We get to hear him sing!Who?Tom Cruise. Of course.It’s totally digitised and overproduced, but that is his voice underneath all those computers. And that is him, all open-mouthed and try-hardy, strutting his leather covered thighs, flinging sweat from by side to side. Full Story

A smug Ashton Kutcher presented at the ACM Awards last night. He also dedicated the following to any woman who might be interested in having him cheat on her, eventually. LeAnn Rimes must be considering it. Ashton had reason to be up his own ass. Variety reported yesterday that he’ll be playing Steve Jobs in an indie film about the late icon. Full Story

Sorry. Did you just choke?There wasn’t much to recommend about Twilight 4 except for when Kristen Stewart’s Bella is all emaciated and sickly because she’s carrying the baby made out of dead sperm. What is the consistency of vampire ejaculate? I bet you JK Rowling could tell you the consistency of Hippogriff ejaculate is all I’m saying. Full Story

I am fond of old romantic movies, which may be surprising, since my heart is made of roofing tar and ashes. But I do love them, I really do. To Have and Have Not, Love in the Afternoon, Roman Holiday, To Catch a Thief, Bringing up Baby, His Girl Friday, and my all-time favorite, The Thin Man. When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be Nora Charles, the smart, sarcastic heroine played by Myrna Loy. Full Story
