It’s Robert Downey Jr’s birthday today. He’s 48. And he’s celebrating in Seoul promoting Iron Man 3. I wonder if he’d be willing to fly over to Pyongyang and talk some sense into that child running the North who thinks that life is a video game. Don’t you think that kid would feel so much better if he could hang out with Tony Stark, maybe try on the suit or something? Crisis easily averted. Full Story

Iron Man 3: I want to go there

Two more months till Iron Man 3. It’s already my favorite movie of the year, to borrow Lainey’s line. And now, with two months to go, Marvel has released the final trailer, giving us our best look yet at the next phase in Marvel’s master plan. How does it look? TOTALLY AWESOME. Full Story

This time they mean business

Despite continued assurances that Iron Man 3 won’t be all that dark, every new round of promotional imagery points toward a more serious, edgier tone than we’ve seen from Tony Stark & Co. to date. Poor Lainey is going to have a heart attack, thinking something bad happens to Pepper because every new image shows her looking increasingly more sad/depressed. Full Story

The Academy sent out a press release this morning announcing that the cast of The Avengers—RDJ, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson—will be presenting at the Oscars. There are a couple noticeable absences, though. Scarlett Johansson, who’s currently on Broadway so it’s conceivable she couldn’t take the time off, but where in the world is Chris Hemsworth? He has his own franchise and Thor 2 is opening later this year. Full Story

You have to have a certain personality for this jacket. Ben Affleck could not have pulled off this jacket. Definitely not Leonardo DiCaprio. Ryan Gosling? You know what? Yeah, he probably could. And definitely, definitely RDJ. Love the colour, love the texture, love the length, love the bowtie, love it without the bowtie at the after-party too. Full Story

Naomi Watts, now confirmed as an Oscar nominee for Best Actress, has been quietly campaigning for The Impossible, and it’s paid off by landing her the trifecta—SAG, Golden Globe and Oscar nominations. So can she win? As Lainey pointed out, Watts has an advantage Full Story

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

Sarah Posted by Sarah at October 23, 2012 15:05:28 October 23, 2012 15:05:28

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
