The first trailer for Fifty Shades Darker dropped today and… I was EXCITED to watch this! When you’ve been immersed in a film festival and you’ve been screening Films with a capital “F” for a few weeks, sometimes it all gets a little too… Filmy. Sometimes you just need some junk. Full Story

He’s had movie after movie at Cannes, so much acclaim, directed Adele’s Hello video, has an LV campaign and is working on an English-language debut with Jessica Chastain in the lead role. Full Story

I can remember every racist thing that has ever happened to me. Vividly. Dating back to when I was about five years old, every moment where someone has made me feel lesser than or uncomfortable or out of place because of my race is catalogued in my brain. I can’t remember the periodic table but I remember every word of the time my classmates told me my skin looked like the sh-t they found in the kindergarten bathroom. Full Story

Baby number 3 for Alec and Hilaria, and Alec’s fourth child – two daughters and two sons, which I think is great symmetry. I really like the name and I hope Duana doesn’t convince me otherwise.   Leoncito!!!!! Full Story

Here’s a little insider tip—if you want to annoy an agent or broadcast network executive, or hell, even a writer who’s had a rough week, use the word ‘dramedy’.  Say something like, “No, it’s not like, funny, like it’s not three jokes per page, but it’s a comedy. Full Story

Space movies are making a comeback, thanks to audiences who only turn out for widescreen spectacles (same reason Westerns are coming back), and in Arrival we get one of the better recent space movies, even though technically, it doesn’t take place in space.
