Natalie surges ahead

Black Swan opened the Venice Film Festival yesterday and the reviews have been largely positive. Even when they’re not positive, they’re not total sh-t either, and the critics who love it, really really do love it, some even going so far as to call Black Swan Darren Aronofsky’s first masterpiece, with his leading lady, Natalie Portman, delivering what many agree to be the finest, most nuanced, most impressive performance of her career. Full Story

The film festival opens tomorrow with Black Swan as the official gala premiere and Machete at the midnight screening. So both Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba arrived today to promote their features. For Alba it’s quite an accomplishment to be included, and it will be a long time before she’s included again. Full Story

Have received many emails from you today asking for thoughts on the trailer for Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, directed by Darren Aronofsky, the follow-up to his acclaimed The Wrestler. Black Swan will open the Venice Film Festival, will screen at TIFF too, and is included on many early lists at this point in the season, with forever to go, to be one of the 10 nominations for Best Picture. Full Story

The search for Lisbeth Salander

It’s become the most coveted role in recent memory – Lisbeth Salander, the badass heroine of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series now being, ugh, adapted for the screen in America ... because people won’t read subtitles. David Fincher’s heading up the remake and Daniel Craig was just confirmed this week at Mikael Blomkvist. Full Story

One note Blake

It was supposed to be the Comic-Con panel for The Green Lantern. Instead Blake Lively tried to make it about her breasts. Hard-ons aside, I mean, really, is it necessary? There were people who I interviewed in line waiting for hours, I mean hours, in the heat, they’d come from far and wide, and if they wanted to see cleave, they could have stayed at home with their laptops and jerked off. Full Story

Natalie & Ashton vs Pip

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher were photographed today on set of their new movie. A romantic comedy about two friends who agree to do it without commitment. Weird. Sound familiar? Justin Timberlake is supposed to be making a movie based on the same premise with Mila Kunis. Sh-t. Don't they have any original ideas in Hollywood anymore? Natalie and Ashton, despite the fact that he's literally over a foot taller than her, make a hot couple. Full Story

Please be Portman and not Lohan

As I’ve already noted several times, for the last few months, they have successfully whipped me into a frenzy for Kick-Ass. It’s been a brilliant online campaign. And finally I’m seeing it at a screening later on this morning. Can’t wait. Unfortunately reviews have been embargoed until release. Full Story

Soho House/Grey Goose Part 4

Only caught a quick glimpse of Natalie Portman and her new man. She is SO small. And that skirt is shorter than you think. The outfit also looks better than it photographs. Portman was having a word with Carey Mulligan. It was all I could do not to have a Sapphic meltdown all over the grand piano. Mulligan stayed close to Maggie Gyllenhaal most of the time, with Peter Sarsgaard coming in and out of their little area. Full Story

Tobey & Leo BFFs

They grew up in the business together, they’ve remained close after all these years. Last night Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio sat courtside on a boys’ night out at the Laker game. First time, perhaps ever, that Tobey has communicated with my quiver trigger. He’s hot, non? And he’s enjoying a career resurgence too. Full Story

Portman, Austen, and zombies

Oh Shelfy loses another one. Natalie Portman continues to work, continues to land interesting scripts, while Jessica Biel, who desperately wants those opportunites, isn’t, doesn’t, can’t. Portman is currently shooting Black Swan in New York for Darren Aronofsky with Mila Kunis. She’s taking Hesher to Sundance – a film she produced – then a comedy called Your Highness with James Franco and Danny McBride slated for Fall, she’s confirmed for Thor (another role Biel wanted), and now it’s been announced that she will produce and star Full Story
