X-Men: Apocalypse fails to register

The trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is here, and it’s awful. It’s even worse than the Superhero Face Punch trailer, but where that one shot itself in the foot by revealing the entire plot of the movie, X-Men is done in by a curious emptiness. I LIKE the X-Men movies—they’re silly as hell, but they’re populated by charismatic actors playing likeable characters and they’re generally well-directed and feature great action. Full Story

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association went with Will Smith over Johnny Depp for Best Actor Drama at the Golden Globes. Normally those starf-ckers are all up in Johnny’s ass. Maybe they’re over his scarves. I’m curious though to know how much international press, like proper interviews, he did for Black Mass and whether or not that had anything to do with it. Full Story

The Hollywood Reporter has released their directors roundtable, which includes Tom Hooper, Danny Boyle, David O. Russell, Ridley Scott, Alejandro González Iñárritu, and Quentin Tarantino. That’s quite a mix of people, several of whom have reputations for being, let’s call it “exacting” in their process. Full Story

A couple months ago I wrote about some developments with Thor: Ragnarok, including that the big-screen Marvel villainess will debut in that movie. This is what I said back then: …empowered by their recent A-list success in casting Doctor Strange, Marvel will pursue a big name actress for Mystery Villainess—like Cate Blanchett big. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m buzzy today. It’s a combination of Christmas and award season excitement. The SAG nominations came down yesterday. The Golden Globe nominations just happened this morning. The Globes are just a month away.  Read Full Intro

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were photographed at The Grove yesterday. Apparently they took their son, Silas, to meet Santa for the first time. As we wind down the year, it was supposed to be a quiet one for Justin as he took time to enjoy being a dad. Full Story

Every kid in Canada growing up in my era had to read that book by W.O. Mitchell. Is it still the same? Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for a Best Actor Drama Golden Globe today for his gruelling, freezing, This Is Sparta! performance in The Revenant. And I know you know but, just for fun, let’s recap all of his movie star hardships, from having to slumber among animal guts to eating raw animal to trudging through the snow and… the bear. Full Story

Am thinking this is for the role? Am HOPING this is for the role? This is Ben Affleck on the set of Live By Night the other day showing off his back. Tattoos are a thing for a lot of people. There’s an entire New Adult romance section of books featuring men with tattoos and the other women and men who f-ck and love them. Full Story

Yesterday we saw the first images from the Alexander Skarsgard Tarzan movie, officially titled The Legend of Tarzan, and today we have a trailer. It’s not disastrously bad, but man, I don’t understand anything about this movie. This trailer makes it look weirdly dark and grim—the Batmanning of Tarzan—until the end when there is a decent sight gag with a teacup. Full Story

This is what I mean when I say I’m torn. Because I love Idris. But this won’t be Idris’s only opportunity, only award season. For Sylvester Stallone as Rocky, well, it’s not going to happen again. And so far it’s my favourite story of award season, as you know, because I can’t shut up about it. Full Story
