Here’s something I didn’t know I wanted that I am now obsessed with: the trailer for The Lovebirds, a comedy starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani. I have watched this four times already, and will undoubtedly watch it four more times before the day is over. The Lovebirds is about a couple in love who get framed for murder and then try to solve said murder to clear their names. Full Story

No Time to Die, the 25th Bond movie and Daniel Craig’s last outing as 007, comes out in April. In advance of that, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson gave an interview to Variety that comes across as half reckoning with the end of Craig’s tenure and half reckoning with the constant public pressure to do something different with the character after 50 years of white dudes in the role. Full Story

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler have been – or had been – together nine years. Us Weekly reported yesterday that it’s over. And she happened to have a premiere last night, so she showed up in basically a wedding dress, the ultimate just-single girl declaration: I’m marrying myself! I can appreciate that. Full Story

Kristen Stewart is having a rough time at the box office. Her latest effort in her return to the mainstream, Underwater, tanked over the weekend (no pun intended). It’s not like anyone expected box office fireworks in January, but Stewart, even spending the better part of the 2010s out of mainstream American cinema, is a big-name movie star, and she cannot catch a break with audiences. Full Story

Sony Pictures Entertainment

In 2018, Sony fell backwards into a hit with Venom, a messy movie with an even messier production, but one that, almost in spite of itself, ended up making over $800 million. Now, Sony is expanding their Spider-Man universe of spin-offs with Morbius, starring Jared Leto in his post-Joker comic book role. Full Story

Double-nominee Black Widow

Last night during the college football championship game, Marvel dropped a “special look” at Black Widow. The “special look” is mostly stuff from the teaser trailer, but we learn that part of Natasha’s challenge in her solo movie is squaring off with a “new generation” of Black Widows, and also facing Taskmaster, a villain who absorbs the fighting style of anyone he—she?—confronts. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Big day today. And normally the biggest headline here at this site would be that it’s Oscar nomination day as we brace for whatever controversy comes out of the snubs and exclusions. To give you some idea of what we might expect, The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg’s final Oscar predictions  Read Full Intro

Timothee Chalamet was at the National Board of Review gala last night in a relatively tame-ish outfit, by his standards, which makes sense because he was a presenter and not an award recipient. It’s not about Timmy right now, although every day for me is about Timmy.  Have you seen Little Women yet? He’s a GREAT Laurie, right? He’s wonderful. Full Story

We didn’t have time to get to Kit Harington and Rose Leslie during our Monday Golden Globes coverage yesterday but it was nice to see them back on the red carpet together, and so happy. Not just happy but… I don’t know if this is exactly the right word for it … peaceful? This is how it looked to me when I saw them on the carpet – staying close together whenever possible. Full Story
