The movie, titled MIB 23, will be directed by James Bobin (The Muppets, Flight of the Conchords), and will star Channing Tatum Full Story

When Angelina Jolie told the world about her double mastectomy, she wrote it in an op-ed in the New York Times. When she told the world earlier this year about having her ovaries removed, she wrote it in an op-ed in the New York Times. So it makes sense that she would grant the New York Times an interview to promote By The Sea and be open to them asking her about her marriage, her working relationship with her husband, sexism in Hollywood, and, yes, the Sony hack. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, two of the biggest and most well-liked movie stars in the world right now, have been attached to a sci-fi movie called Passengers for a while. The movie is about a deep space voyage in which a passenger wakes up early and then wakes up a fellow passenger to keep him company since everyone else is in suspended animation for the voyage. Full Story

Check out Daniel Craig in London on Sunday night shooting Bond Spectre. God he looks great in that ¾ coat. Actually, no, he looks great in both coats. Spectre is due in theatres November 6. That…doesn’t feel like it’s too far away. And I feel like it doesn’t leave a lot of time for post. Full Story

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer were in Vegas earlier this week at CinemaCon to promote The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It comes out in August. And as I mentioned earlier this week, neither star has much heat right now so the marketing team for the movie has to get on it, soon. Cavill in particular, given that he's Superman, really needs this. Full Story

Amy Pascal was at the Women in the World conference yesterday. Pascal, of course, was head of Sony during the big Gossip Dump of 2014 when all those hacked emails were released. As Sarah wrote last week (click here for a refresher), it was recently announced that she’s leaving Sony but is heading up independent production in collaboration with the studio. Full Story

Throughout December as we covered the fallout of the Sony Hack, I often wondered how Amy Pascal, co-chair of the studio and head of its Motion Picture Group, could possibly continue on, given how damaging some of the leaked information was to interpersonal working relationships. How effective can you be when you’re constantly apologizing for sh*t-talking behind people’s backs? Hollywood is a high school cafeteria, and in that environment, being caught out as a behind-hand gossip usually results in excommunication. Full Story

According to Deadline, Amy Adams' Today show interview was cancelled because she didn't want to talk about the Sony hacks. It's not a random question, since the leaked emails revealed she and Jennifer Lawrence made less for American Hustle than their male co-stars. Full Story
