Though Nightcrawler opened over the weekend, earning a respectable $10.4 million, Jake Gyllenhaal is still out promoting the movie. Partially because Nightcrawler is the kind of movie that benefits from word of mouth, but also in no small part in service of an Oscar campaign. Full Story

A smiling Robert Pattinson was photographed in Toronto yesterday just as news broke that production on Idol’s Eye, his new film (with Robert De Niro, scheduled to start shooting this month), had been shut down because they couldn’t get the funding together. Pattinson will be fine. But it’ll suck for those below the line. Full Story

Lupita of the single name

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 4, 2014 17:09:18 November 4, 2014 17:09:18

She’s at that level, right? I don’t even need to say her full name. Lupita Nyong’o is a beautiful name, but if I just say “Lupita”, you know who I’m talking about. Musicians do it—Cher, Beyonce, Madonna, Britney, Adele, Lorde—but there aren’t as many actresses who command the same single-name power. Full Story

Writer/director JC Chandor is on a roll. First Margin Call, for which he was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar, and then the exceptional All Is Lost last year, and now he’s entering this year’s Oscar race with A Most Violent Year starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. The first trailer is out and it’s very promising, showing off Isaac and Chastain as well as David Oyelowo, and setting up a surprisingly moody crime drama. Full Story

Angelina Jolie. Vanity Fair. God. Those eyes. THAT FACE. The Jolie was photographed for the December issue by Mario Testino. This, of course, is for Unbroken, opening at Christmas and expected to contend for Oscar. They’ve been expecting it to contend for Oscar for a year now. Or, at the very least, a directing nomination for the new Mrs Pitt. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s November. Very soon, PEOPLE will announce the new Sexiest Man Alive. Which means that very soon, Adam Levine will have to take his sash off and give it to someone else. GOOD. In years past, I’ve handicapped the Sexiest Man Alive feature, with a dozen or so possible candidates, ending on a prediction.  Read Full Intro

This is the first shot of Eva Mendes since she gave birth to daughter Esmeralda on September 12. She looks exactly the same. And since we never saw her pregnant – not even one undeniable gratuitous pregnancy shot – it’s almost like it never happened, only TMZ found and released the birth certificate. Full Story

Whoa, Marco Polo—what’s up?

I’m in a TV rut. My DVR went kaput over the summer and when I got a new box, faced with reprogramming dozens of hours of TV, I found that I didn’t like hardly anything I’d been watching. So I ditched a bunch of shows and even still, until Justified comes back in 2015, I’m not really into anything. Full Story
