Redefining Tonto & Depp with Paradis

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 9, 2012 15:33:17 March 9, 2012 15:33:17

Yesterday the first image from Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger was released, featuring Armie Hammer as the Ranger and Johnny Depp as Tonto. I texted Lainey that I was into it and she responded that she was over Depp and his overly elaborate costumes and makeup, and that she thought the photo communicated a lot of Try. Full Story

Here's Julianne Moore at the premiere of Game Change last night. I don't love how the black top is cutting her off. Game Change airs on Saturday on HBO and HBO Canada. I screened it last week. You need to watch it. Not because it's the best movie. But because it's riveting. Jacek and I were transfixed. Full Story

I’ve been checking in the reviews to see how John Carter has been steadily dropping. Then the rating for 21 Jump Street caught my eye:100% so farIt’s early, sure. Jump Street doesn’t open for another 10 days. There’s no way it stays at 100%. But Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, New York Magazine, HitFix, Premiere, The Playlist, and Total Film have all weighed in and all of them are positive. Full Story

They say that John Carter is tracking well in Russia... but that it’s not doing so great in other parts of Europe and South America. Given how much Hollywood relies on foreign box office these days - even Prince of Persia was rescued overseas - well, it seems like this movie just can’t win. Not even at a 74% fresh rating (at press time) on Rotten Tomatoes. Full Story

Taylor Kitsch looked really, really handsome at the UK premiere of John Carter last night in London, didn’t he? I like how rosy his cheeks are. More importantly though, especially as it relates to TK’s career...The first reviews for John Carter have been released and they’re not bad. I mean, not everyone liked it, but the ones who didn’t like it didn’t despite it, and the ones who did like it have a lot of good things to say. Full Story

Avengers Assemble and Scarlett gets to speak

The Oscars are over. It’s the summer box office now that is the new priority. Today a full trailer for The Avengers was released. Here, watch: Thoughts? I like it. A LOT.And Scarjo is allowed to speak now! This time, it’s Jeremy Renner who’s been reduced to background. Still, in that final shot of the 6 of them getting ready for battle, I had to laugh at the fact that all she has is a little gun in her hand when the rest of them are all tricked out with hammers, shields, rockets, and the like. Full Story

I texted Lainey late last week about set photos from Star Trek 2: Star Trekkier that showed Benedict Cumberbatch and Zachary Quinto filming a fight scene. Then she texted me last night and said that I could choose which photos to go with the post. And I was all, “It’s Christmas!” because I don’t pick the photos that go with the things that I write, which never bothers me, EXCEPT when it comes to the object of my Cumbercrush, because Lainey always picks the worst photos of him she can find. Full Story
