Emily Blunt and Jack Black were photographed in London today outside the BBC, beginning promotion on Gulliver’s Travels, due in theatres on December 22, hoping to contend for the holiday box office crown. Earlier this week, Sarah predicted that Gulliver along with what she’s calling “Pedobear: The Movie” ie Yogi Bear (starring the voice of Justin Timberlake) would be the two bombs of the season. Full Story

Written by Sarah Holiday movie season is upon us. This is an unusual period for films since indie and arthouse fare is vying for attention in awards season and studios are releasing the (mostly family friendly) tent pole properties they think have a little more breeding than their summer counterparts (Sherlock Holmes and Avatar were last year’s splashy franchise-starters). Full Story

Then again, it’s not hard to be better than The Love Guru. Woah wait. Wasn’t Jessica Alba in The Love Guru. Was she forced at gunpoint? Because, you know, she’s all discerning and sh-t right? Anyway, there’s another Canadian who is making a movie about hockey. And, well, it sounds awesome. Full Story

On Love & Other Drugs

As noted in my Colin Firth article earlier about The King’s Speech, I don’t know what it is about this time of year that makes me (we?) so much more receptive to the heart-swellers. It’s American Thanksgiving. And while I am not American and already celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving, it’s like a switch that gets flipped, perhaps around the same time as Christmas lights (cheese!), when “feelgood” becomes an unconscious motivation, when it’s easier for petty bitches like me to want the best for other people. Full Story

He really isn’t. But the way the timing worked out yesterday at Letterman, Colin Firth had to be. Any show producer would have made the same call. After all, Jerry Seinfeld was there. And he delivered a short stand-up routine. And he spent time on the chair with Dave, talking about his trip to the White House. Full Story

Jakey’s influence?

It was a straightened and fringed Taylor Swift at the American Music Awards last night, a departure from her usual, and signature, hairspray angel ringlets. I like it. Does Jakey like it? Did Jakey recommend it? As of last week, Jakey and Swifty were still together. This weekend though, so far, there have been no sightings. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston – she shot Just Go With It with Adam Sandler, then moved right into Horrible Bosses, and now it’s Wanderlust with Paul Rudd, all in one year, all comedies. And you know, it’s not like she’s poor. Some projects though, I guess you can’t turn down. Wanderlust reunites her with Paul Rudd. Full Story

Natalie Portman, comedienne

Written by Sarah First, let’s get something straight. I don’t dislike Natalie Portman. I like her quite a lot, actually. She’s sharp, talented, and I generally like her movies. I don’t see all of them because she has a habit of making some pretty depressing stuff, but I enjoy her on screen. Full Story

Before The Great Gatsby’s Daisy, Lisbeth Salander was the most coveted role for women in Hollywood. Carey Mulligan lost out on that part despite being considered an early frontrunner. She was a late entry to the Daisy derby, coming into the mix only after several other names had been widely circulated, including Blake Lively. Full Story
