Here are photos of Chris Evans and Chadwick Boseman on set for Captain America: Civil War reshoots in Los Angeles this week. Evans is sporting some serious fake bruises on his face, which means Cap is getting his ass handed to him at some point. Boseman looks fine because Black Panther is smart and wears a full-face mask. Full Story

Yesterday I wrote about Leonardo DiCaprio and Don’s Plum, the film he shot almost 20 years ago with his boys Tobey Maguire and Kevin Connolly that he and Tobey had blocked from North America. Click here for a refresher. As mentioned, the filmmaker decided to make Don’s Plum available online for free. Full Story

Natalie Portman wants you to know she’s “back,” and can also hold a tune with Sia and Jimmy Fallon. She’s doing US press for the first time since Thor: The Dark World in Nov. 2013, this time for the beleaguered, woman-centric western Jane Got a Gun that she produced and stars in (which will likely flop Full Story

I haven’t posted about Colin Farrell in a LONG time. Like since August. Despite the fact that he’s actually never looked better. Look at him. He’s SO hot. But he’s also been really, really quiet. Quietly living, quietly working. He’s in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Full Story

The Nostalgia Train’s next stop is Little House on the Prairie

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 27, 2016 16:43:40 January 27, 2016 16:43:40

After stalling out at Sony, it was announced yesterday that the movie version of Little House on the Prairie has relocated to Paramount. The movie will be written by Abi Morgan, co-writer of Shame, and directed by Sean Durkin, who made Martha Marcy May Marlene. That’s a VERY interesting talent combo. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro G Inarritu were in Mexico yesterday continuing to promote The Revenant. Leo’s Oscar for Best Actor has been secured. But they also want The Revenant to take Best Picture (with an asterisk, because let’s face it, the winners this year will be overshadowed by #OscarsSoWhite). Full Story

Here’s your feel-good story of the day. Nate Parker, the actor best known for Beyond the Lights, basically quit acting right when he was getting some traction off that movie in order to make Birth of a Nation, about Nat Turner and his doomed slave revolt in the 1830s. Parker produced, directed, and stars in the movie, and he also co-wrote the screenplay. Full Story

I think Saint Tom the Huge Dork is gone for good

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 25, 2016 20:59:49 January 25, 2016 20:59:49

I’ve been missing Saint Tom the Huge Dork, as Tom Hiddleston has deliberately lowered his profile over the last couple years. Saint Tom the Huge Dork was born of the glory days when he was last promoting 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, and doing silly dances all over the place and generally being a huge dork. Full Story

Step aside, Ben, it’s Casey’s turn

It is my opinion that between the Affleck brothers, Casey is the better all-around actor. He can do character work, he can carry as a lead, he can disappear into roles or look sufficiently Hollywood, depending on how “visible” you want your star to be. Ben Affleck has proven to be a better filmmaker than anyone expected, but Casey, for my money, delivers much more as an actor than Ben does. Full Story
