So this is what we’re talking about today. Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant. And according to The Drudge Report, he’s violated during his bear attack. Multiple times. The explicit moment from Oscar winning director Alejandro Inarritu has caused maximum controversy in early screenings. Full Story

Adam Sandler’s “movie”, The Ridiculous 6, premiered last night in advance of its 12/11 release on Netflix. I will be reviewing this eyeball garbage because I’m a masochist, but also because I feel you can’t really sh*t on a thing until you’ve seen it, so I’m going to have to live this hell to determine if Sandler’s string of (alleged) cinematic crimes Full Story

One of our favourites is celebrating a birthday today. Sarah Silverman is 45. Yesterday she was out shopping with Michael Sheen. I just posted about Gwen and Blake and how their Try is getting so tired so quickly. Sarah and Michael? The opposite. I don’t have to catch up with them often. When I do catch up with them it’s always a good time. Full Story

Michael B. Jordan in Creed

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 30, 2015 17:33:28 November 30, 2015 17:33:28

Without Rocky, there is no Creed, but you don’t need to know Rocky to get Creed. In the most impressive feat of franchise filmmaking in recent memory—maybe ever—Creed, the seventh entry into the Rocky franchise is entirely its own film, and yet it is an organic part of that larger mythos as well. Full Story

David O Russell’s Joy screened in LA and NYC this weekend as Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper joined their director to promote the film and raise its award season profile. Joy’s been on the contender list for months now, because the combination of David O Russell, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper has resulted in so many previous nominations. Full Story

Check out Ben and Sienna on the set of Live By Night, kissing in character. Is it hitting you where your gossip lives? Um. Medium? Like I could totally, totally see it. Full Story

Thanksgiving Bourne

Matt Damon is in Berlin this week continuing to work on the new Bourne and, seemingly, staying away from awards campaigning. Which certainly makes him look a lot less hungry for it than, say, Leonardo DiCaprio. But considering that there might be a 6th man out in the Best Actor race, I do wish he'd step on it a little, just so Leo doesn't walk away with it like it's belonged to him the entire time. Full Story

Sarah is American and I feel bad asking her to write a Star Wars post on her Thanksgiving break so you’re stuck with me for this Star Wars article. Another TV spot was released yesterday. At first I was like, Jesus, does Star Wars really need to build all this anticipation? EVERYONE is going to see Star Wars. Full Story

In 2010, the world was captivated by the real life drama of thirty-three Chilean miners trapped underground in a collapsed gold and copper mine. Sixty-nine days later a miracle was achieved when all thirty-three men were rescued, starved but alive. Interviews, television appearances, and books followed, and a film adaptation was inevitable. Full Story

Will Smith for President?

Will Smith is promoting Concussion. He’s been featured in multiple interviews this week and, unfortunately, most of them don’t feature Samuel L Jackson. Concussion is the true story of neuropathologist Dr Bennet Omalu’s work exposing what playing American style football can do a player’s brain based on a 2009 investigate report in GQ Magazine written by Jeanne Marie Laskas. Full Story
