In a surprise move, Marvel dropped the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live (thanks to some Grade-A studio f*ckery, expect to see a new trailer from DC soon, too). Trying to keep up with their bosses’ brinksmanship may drive everyone at Marvel Studios and Warner Brothers/DC completely insane, but so long as we get to break down Civil War, I’m fine with that. Full Story

The Revenant has been screening in LA for Academy members the last few days and the response has been very, very positive. As you know, The Revenant is Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s follow-up to Birdman, the reigning Best Picture. As you know, the shoot was difficult, it was delayed, it was expensive, and he was reportedly a dick to the crew. Full Story

Unfortunately, the movie does not live up to the totally insane bar that Tom Hardy is setting. In Legend Hardy stars as Ronnie and Reggie Kray, a pair of Cockney gangster twins in the London of the swinging 1960s. Reggie Kray is relatively straight-laced, the twin with the business sense who runs their would-be criminal empire. Full Story

Like many of you, I thought I’d want to see a photo of Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling side by side. At one time, I thought that might be photo I could add to my spank bank.

Wait before you laugh. I'm not saying she's going to be nominated. But Johnny Depp is one of the favourites for a nomination this season for his performance in Black Mass. Which he claims he doesn't want to win. But the nomination? He'll take it. Because, for one, his wife will want to go. Full Story

Bradley Cooper’s Burnt was not well received by critics or at the box office. If he’s going to show up during award season then, it’ll be for David O Russell’s Joy. And he’s been nominated the two previous times that David O’Russell’s directed him. It’s been 6 months since Coop and Irina Shayk started dating. Full Story

Every year someone tries to make an insta-classic holiday comedy, and almost every year, they fail.
