Here are Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, and their little Leo heading out of Madrid last week. To Rome With Love opens in limited release on June 22. There should be a promotional appearance for it coming soon. Or several. Have you seen the trailer? I hate. The music makes me crazy. The music makes me wonder if the entire film will be all Mamma Mia Pizzeria Ciao Bella Gucci Donatella! Anyway, Pene’s next project will also be an ensemble. Full Story

Can we PLEASE get a trailer for this?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 13, 2012 16:03:32 June 13, 2012 16:03:32

Over the last 3 weeks or so, most of the expected Oscar contending features have been rolling out their first trailers...but for Anna Karenina. Joe Wright, can you PLEASE get on this??? This is another film Duana and I will be seeing together, holding hands. Right after Les Miserables. I’ve been saying for a while, ever since the previews for Savages came out, that I’m not sure how I’ll make it out of the theatre after watching two hours of Aaron Johnson. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence was photographed yesterday working out. At one point it looked like she was sprinting. You know what I hate about sprints the way Hayley makes me do them? First of all it’s never just once. With her it’s usually five times. And it has to be faster each time. Like it’s not bad enough that she’s making you giv’er down the field, you’re expected to be better the more tired you are. Full Story

Show me the audition tape

Oh guess what? Lindsay Lohan lied to the cops about who was driving when her Porsche collided with a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway last week. Apparently she told them that it was her assistant who was driving, and even climbed over her assistant on the passenger side to get out the car. Full Story

Charlize Theron took Jackson to the doctor’s office today for a checkup. I want those pants. But look... You can tell especially in the shots from the back... She buzzed her head! Charlize is due in Namibia soon to start shooting Mad Max Fury Road with Tom Hardy. I’ve no doubt this explains her hair. Full Story

Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund were in New York yesterday. God he is so much hotter now that he’s with her. I can’t stop saying this... And here’s your Catching Fire update: I’m told that Hedlund auditioned for the part of Finnick in Catching Fire for director Francis Lawrence about 10 days ago. Full Story

Prometheus mostly worked

I said last week that I wasn’t really feeling the Prometheus hype, that sci-fi isn’t really my bag and I was struggling to get interested in it despite a top-notch cast. But I also thought that, because I wasn’t on the crazy hype wagon, I might actually get to enjoy it because I wasn’t expecting a transformative movie experience. Full Story

I wish all the girls could have been there last night at the Shirley MacLaine AFI event. Still, it was enough to make me want to watch it right now. Maybe tonight. Maybe Jacek will go out and leave me alone to cry at the television and I can put the True Blood screeners on hold until tomorrow. Duana and I just texted back and forth about this. Full Story

Cornball. Can’t believe I wrote that. Moving on. Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year, I know a lot of you have been all over Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. I haven’t been that anxious for it, which is weird, because the cast is pretty much a bunch of people I wholeheartedly support. Full Story

Captain America 2 might be funny?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 7, 2012 17:57:03 June 7, 2012 17:57:03

 I worried for Captain America, a lot. Of all of Marvel’s pre-Avengers movies, that’s the one I had the most concern about. The challenge with Cap is that Steve Rogers is the boringest superhero ever. It’s like Lainey says about Game of Thrones all the time—there’s only so much drama when you know a character will always, unfailingly do the right thing. Full Story

Django’s first trailer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 6, 2012 20:45:27 June 6, 2012 20:45:27

As I’ve been saying for a while now... this is the movie I’m waiting for. More than The Dark Knight Rises, more than anything else, even Les Miserables, it’s Django Unchained. Advance footage from the film, opening in December, was screened in Cannes. In comparison this trailer is. Full Story
