London Fields

London Fields is one of the worst movies I’ve seen this year, and I’ll get to sh*tting on it in a second, but first, an odd thing happened TIFF with this movie. I saw it at a press screening at the festival—Joanna and I were both completely floored by its unmitigated rancidness—but before it premiered for the public, it was pulled from the TIFF lineup because the director, Matthew Cullen, sued the producers Full Story

Celebrity apologies usually come in two flavors: 1) I’m sorry you’re upset, and 2) I’m sorry I got caught (sub-category; I’m sorry you misunderstood). Owning personal responsibility is, depressingly, rare in this strata of humanity, but when Michael B. Jordan found himself the target of public outrage, he offered up a thoughtful apology the likes of which we rarely see from celebrities. Full Story

TMZ has shots of them at Disney World together this weekend. Then they turned up in Miami for brunch after she watched him perform. That’s a sleepover. TMZ spoke to sources who say it’s not a dating situation but that the two have “absolutely hooked up”. Full Story

A lot of bricks are being thrown at Stonewall, and with good reason. The film has been savagely attacked by critics for whitewashing the 1969 Stonewall Riots, a pivotal turning point for the LGBTQ rights movement in the U.S. Beyond that, it’s been hit by several boycotts and grossed a paltry $839 per theatre in its opening weekend Full Story

My friend Lorella, who lives in England, texted me this morning: They’re calling Kate’s hair a “gringe”. Grown out fringe. I think that’s worse than the actual haircut. Would you avoid a haircut because the actual name of the haircut sucks? “Gringe” is a terrible word. Full Story

Nancy Meyers’s latest Upper East Side White People With Problems movie, The Intern, follows the likes of It’s Complicated and Something’s Gotta Give, except The Intern has been liberally doused with hipster flavor in an attempt to appeal to The Youths. Manhattan has been traded for Brooklyn—sorry, Brooklyn, as the location of a Nancy Meyers movie you are no longer hip—and the “people of a certain age” rom-com plot has been replaced with a platonic, inter-generational friendship between a thirty-something Millennial and a septuagenarian Baby Boomer. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio spoke at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival on Saturday in New York. These are probably the best pictures we’ve seen of him in, well, in years. This is the version of Leo we’ll be seeing for the next several months as he campaigns toward his first Oscar for his performance in Alejandro G Inarritu’s The Revenant. Full Story

Neither Benedict Cumberbatch nor Jake G are playing Nikola Tesla

That’s my takeaway from the news that Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to star in a movie called The Current War, based on the nineteenth century patents arms race between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse for control of the budding electric industry. At the heart of the Current War was Edison’s direct current system going up against NIKOLA TESLA’s alternating current system—Tesla designed the electric grid as we know it today—which was a much more efficient, and cheaper, way of transmitting large quantities of electricity. Full Story

A year ago yesterday, Amal Alamuddin married George Clooney in Venice. The whole world was invited to watch them along the canals that weekend. Now they’ve made it to their first anniversary. Is that what you expected? Or did you think it would go the way of many Hollywood marriages – major expense for the wedding only to fall apart after a few months. Full Story
