When the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced last month that Jodie Foster would receive the Cecil B DeMille award at the Golden Globes this year, I wrote that it would be amazingly awkward, though perhaps unlikely, that it would be Mel Gibson to present it to her. Click here Full Story

The Long Dark Tea Time of Tony Stark’s Soul

Lainey is already panicking about Iron Man 3, convinced from the new trailer that Pepper Potts will die and Tony Stark will be SO SAD and that this will be a super depressing superhero movie. This is the reason I’ve been excited for Extremis since it was confirmed at Comic Con Full Story

And you should be ready for it. We’ll save the nerd breakdown (nerd down?) for tomorrow when the first full trailer for Iron Man 3 is released, but today we’ve got a seventeen second teaser that, though brief, clearly says, YES, SH*T JUST GOT REAL. It also says, WE WILL STUNT YOUR FACE OFF. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal could take a cue from Chris Evans

That is a truly bizarre sentence to write. The last time Jake G had a movie in theaters was nearly eighteen months ago, last spring’s Source Code. Since then, he’s kept a relatively low profile as he recalibrates after his Movie Star dreams died a slow, inexorable death in 2010. For reasons I will never understand, you people wouldn’t let him be a Movie Star (I say “you people” because I fully supported him as a blockbuster star and will always slightly resent everyone else for pushing Jake G aside in favor of Channing Tatum), so he has gone back to his roots in character-driven indies. Full Story

In the ongoing story of “The Avengers is making all the money”, The Hollywood Reporter has a piece about Robert Downey Jr.’s Avengers bonus money. RDJ took a huge upfront pay cut to be in The Avengers (so did everyone else) but, thanks to a deal negotiated after Iron Man was a hit in 2008, RDJ is set to rake in around $50 million thanks to backend percentage points and bonuses. Full Story

In the days leading up to The Avengers release on May 4, the projections were calling for a $150-170 million opening weekend. I thought it would just beat the high side, ending up around $172 million, which would best the previous opening weekend record set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 of $169 million. Full Story

Coldplay performed at the Hollywood Bowl last night, the first of 3 sold out shows at the venue. Robert Downey Jr and wife Susan were there to support their friend Chris Martin. As you know, RDJ and Gwyneth Paltrow are super-tight. The Martins host the Downeys all the time in New York. This is your least favourite thing about RDJ, isn’t it? Two days now until The Avengers opens. Full Story

My interviews with The Avengers from the weekend junket will be airing on etalk all week. Proper reviews are still embargoed but apparently the geeks are more than satisfied with what Joss Whedon has accomplished. Like we’re talking mega nerd approval. Me I have no idea what the nerds want. What I wanted was more than just special effects and explosions. Full Story

The male Avengers all showed for The Avengers premiere last night. I’ll need some nerd help on the following: is Nick Fury considered an Avenger? I was picking all the pictures and excluded Tom Hiddleston because he doesn’t qualify as Loki’s a bad guy but how about Sam Jackson? (Easy you horny Hiddleston fans. Full Story
