You know I LOVE Taylor Kitsch. You know I want very badly for Taylor Kitsch to have a huge movie star career. Yes, because he’s hot, and of course, because he’s Riggins, but mostly because I’ve met him several times and he’s really, really nice. He deserves it. But...John Carter, it’s not for me. As I posted the other day, Taylor was making the talk show rounds - click here Full Story

As I wrote in the article about Anne Hathaway being confirmed as Fantine - click here for a refresher - I love Les Miserables in a very serious, very personal way. In the most corny way. Like, errrm, going to Paris and wanting to walk where Victor Hugo walked. Full Story

If the family movie isn’t your thing this weekend, you could always go see Michael Fassbender in A Dangerous Method. There’s actually a double shot of Fassy coming up in the next few weeks. Next month it’s Shame for which many say he’s deserving of an Oscar nomination. In January it’ll be Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire. Full Story

Maybe the second half of the year

Taylor Kitsch has 3 films due out in 2012. In March it’s John Carter. In the summer it’s Battleship. In the fall, it’ll be Oliver Stone’s Savages. I love Taylor Kitsch. And I want so badly for him to become a big star. But I think it’ll be the second half of 2012 that’s promising than the first. Because from what we’ve seen of his two major blockbusters. Full Story

Received an email this morning from a major Channing Tatum fangirl called Melanie B: hi lainey! my birthday just passed, its the 18th of november and I just turned 19 and finished exam week! I dont think I've ever read a complimentary post about Channing Tatum on the website, except to compare him with kellan lutz, which really isnt saying much. Full Story

Jay! Nick! Daisy!

These are the best shots yet from the set of The Great Gatsby in Sydney of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan as Jay, Nick, and Daisy directed by Baz 3D. I looooooove Carey’s hair so much. And Leo’s little wave, what do you think of Leo’s little wave? Leo just celebrated his 37th birthday last week in New York the same day J Edgar opened to mixed reviews and a box office of $11 million, so even though his performance has been praised, the film’s modest to underwhelming response could mean he just misses the final 5 for a Best Actor nomination. Full Story

Mirror Mirror is beyond second-hand embarrassing

When I wrote about ending the Snow White “war” last week, I said it was over not because one movie was better than the other, but because they’re targeting totally different demographics and there would be little audience crossover. (Really, Relativity needs to worry about Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, as it comes out just two weeks before Mirror, Mirror. Full Story

This is not a love story

You’re goddamn right, motherf-cker. The first full length trailer for The Hunger Games has been released. I.LOVE.IT.No, it’s not perfect. Haymitch’s wig is a problem. I’m not sure about Katniss’s prom dress on American Idol there, either. But these are minor, minor, minor complaints. What’s important, the most important, is tone. Full Story

Meryl Streep was in London today for the unveiling of the poster for The Iron Lady with the film’s director Phyllida Lloyd. Streep’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher is expected to earn her yet another Oscar Best Actress nomination. I wasn’t really feeling the teaser trailer that was released in July.

The Snow White battle royale is over

And not because one project is better than the other. It’s over because they’re so DIFFERENT that comparing becomes pointless.If you’ve been living under a rock, an ongoing movie business story this year is the “Snow White war” being waged between Universal and Relativity. These two used to be financial partners and used to get along pretty well but obviously somebody ran over someone’s dog because they’ve had a falling out that has led to hundreds of millions of dollars in production spending. Full Story
