Oh hi, good morning. New York Times profile on Cary Fukunaga, are you still with me or have you just lost yourself in this photo? Cary continues to promote Beasts Of No Nation. The film has been strongly reviewed. Netflix is launching an Oscar campaign behind it.

Jennifer Lawrence gets tough in Joy

In the past, Jennifer Lawrence has done something that bugs me—she downplays her ambition. By her early twenties, she bagged two franchises and multiple Oscar nominations and became one of the most famous and successful young actresses in the world. None of that happens by accident. It takes considerable ambition and drive to achieve those kinds of goals. Full Story

Sarah and I were exchanging emails the other night about Star Wars after the trailer dropped and the internet got broken because people were trying to buy advance tickets. She was saying how Star Wars is going to basically kill everything else at the box office at Christmas and that there’s no point in counter-programming because, in her words, “I don't think counter programming is going to work when the movie you're programming against is one literally EVERYONE wants to see”. Full Story

Yesterday was a fine day to be Lauren Graham (as if all the others aren’t). Because in addition to the news that Gilmore Girls is set to have a series of special episodes on Netflix, it was announced that Graham and her other, more recent, perhaps more realistic TV daughter had acquired the rights to ‘The Royal We’ for Graham to write and Mae Whitman to star in. Full Story

Star Wars broke the internet

After a long-ass delay, the final Star Wars Episode VII trailer arrived last night, plunked in the middle of Monday Night Football, just to ensure that Disney got ALL the attention and money. Why the delay? The JJ Abrams School of SECRETY SECRETS makes already strict security measures a living nightmare, but there’s also a time crunch on, as they barrel closer to that December 18th release date. Full Story

Liam Hemsworth, my preferred Hemsworth (purely on attraction) was in Melbourne last night for the premiere of The Dressmaker. His big brother, Chris, the more famous, more successful Hemsworth, showed up to support him. You know, it’s about that time. There’s only a month left. Full Story

I didn’t like Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim as much as I wanted to, because no matter how cool it looks, the story is really dumb. And you can’t say “oh it’s just supposed to be fun” in an era where we’re seeing some really quality populist films, from Marvel and the Dark Knight trilogy, to the revival of Bond and Mission: Impossible, to movies like Inception and The Martian, that don’t draw a line between “popular” and “smart”. Full Story
