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

I appreciate the effort. That she didn’t want to be boring. But this dress...It’s really, really, REALLY bad. Maybe, like, MAYBE, and this is the weakest maybe ever, if the dots were smaller? Probably not. But sh-t, it’s SH-T, right??? And the hair, the fringe, that doesn’t help either. I don’t understand how this happens. Full Story

We talk a lot about the decline of the Movie Star. About how the real Movie Stars aren’t being supported the way they were, how the Movie Star has to share with the Reality Star, how the Reality Star might be killing the Movie Star. But while many of those Movie Stars have suffered serious setbacks, there is one Movie Star who keeps rising. Full Story

So The Avengers looks awesome

I know this is right up my alley and exactly my thing, but c’mon, doesn’t The Avengers look cool? Marvel unveiled the teaser trailer yesterday I love it a whole lot. I love how good RDJ looks as Tony Stark. I love the glimpses of Tom Hiddleston as bad-guy Loki. I love how Scarlett Johansson is seen and not heard. Full Story

RDJ & The Jolie

The photo agency has photo sets of Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr side by side. And they’re both smiling broadly. So then I thought to myself - have they ever done a movie together? What would that be like? This is RDJ in England on the set of Sherlock Holmes, continuing with reshoots today and, happily it seems, not dressed up as Fu Manchu. Full Story
