Woody Allen’s Irrational Man photo call and presser in Cannes today. And Emma Stone’s Cannes first time. Maybe that’s why Emma went with a cocktail dress? I mean it’s not a gown. But I feel like it’s a dress you might see at a party. And also a lot more formal than we’ve seen from her before at this kind of event. Full Story

Filming for Captain America: Civil War is underway in Atlanta, and a batch of set photos has popped up showing Chris Evans dressed in a Sad Suit, Looking Sad, and carrying a casket. Who died?! Well, since Emily Van Camp, who plays Sharon Carter, is also present and dressed in black, my guess is Peggy Carter, Cap’s star-crossed love. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal wasn’t at the Palais last night. The jury wasn’t required. Here he is today around town. And pictures of him from opening night on Wednesday looking very smooth in that tux. While Jake had no official engagements to attend on Thursday, he was part of the Weinstein annual Cannes presentation – not necessarily in person but in performance. Full Story

As you’ve heard, JLO’s going to Vegas, officially. The residency begins in January at Planet Hollywood. As I said before, JLO’s a good show. But there aren’t that many hits. So the spectacle might be more important than the songs, you know? The clothing, the makeup, the hair, the choreography. Full Story

THIS. This is why Harry was voted the Most Popular Royal last year ahead of even his granny, the Queen. And this is what sets him apart from his brother and his sister-in-law…who’ve either forgotten spontaneity or have been asked to bury it in themselves. Because wherever Harry goes, despite the fact that Vegas is well behind him now, you never know when he’ll take it off-script. Full Story

George Clooney handcuffed himself to David Letterman last night. To me, he seemed quite comfortable. And quite comfortable alluding to the fact that he was comfortable. And yes, as a favourite of Letterman’s, Clooney was a three block guest. Sort of. I mean, officially, he was a two block guest, but he pulled up a stool and stuck around for Tom Waits. Full Story
Scandal Season 4 Episode 22 season finale recap So I learned about trade-offs recently. Not in the colloquial sense, but in the actual, scientific sense. Whenever you’re trying to make a product or satisfy some criteria, you acknowledge that there will be places where you can’t satisfy as much of the criteria as you would like in one category, in order to satisfy other categories.

If I was in Cannes, one of the films I’d be queuing for this weekend is the Amy Winehouse documentary directed by Asif Kapadia. Have you seen Senna? One of the best sports documentaries of all time. Obviously more enjoyable if you were a fan of Ayrton Senna but still riveting if you’re not. And I feel like it will be the same with Amy.
I was at a barbecue last weekend when Back To Black came on rotation.
And I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside
Duana and I looked at each other and, almost at the same time, sighed, “Oh Amy”.
It was announced yesterday that Amy will be released in theatres July 10. The trailer is below.
