There is a handful of films I want, kind of desperately, to see in my lifetime, and for some reason, they’re all biopics. They are, in order: Nikola Tesla, Harry Houdini, World War II ladyspies Christine Granville and/or Nancy Wake, and pirates Bartholomew Roberts and Jean Lafitte. Out of all of those, the only one we’re remotely close to seeing is Harry Houdini as there are currently two Houdini projects in development, one at Sony and one at Lionsgate. Full Story
Gwyneth Paltrow spoke at the first Code Conference the other day in California. She was there hanging out with tech power players like Sergey Brin and Satya Nadella. You know what she talked about? Internet hate. Is she colluding with Tom Cruise? While Tom’s defenders focus on YouTube and blogs, G’s attack was on “trolls”, specifically people who comment anonymously online. Full Story
The premiere of Edge Of Tomorrow happened in London today at around 6:30am local. Man, I would be so pissed if I had to get up at ass in the morning to cover that carpet.

WWD reported a few days ago that Gisele Bundchen is the new face of Chanel No 5 and that Baz Luhrmann is directing the campaign. PEOPLE wrote about it yesterday and reminded me of the last time we talked about a Chanel No 5 ad – Brad Pitt’s.
And then I had to watch it again.
You remember. Brad ruminating on the meaning of life? As many of you come back from a long weekend in America, sluggish from the sun and beer, I thought you might want to revisit this.

Yours in gossip,
X-Men: Days Of Future Past did big business at the box office this weekend. And while it was definitely a group effort, fully supported by nerds, I do feel like Hugh Jackman has been the face of this effort, the one who carried them all on his back, publicity-wise, and who deserves a lot of credit.
