Chris Pratt hosted a special screening of A Quiet Place in LA on Wednesday with John Krasinski. It’s not like their friendship is a secret; they’re super bro-y on Instagram and support each other’s charity efforts. Plus, Chris was so taken with A Quiet Place that back in April, he recorded a reaction video from his car that John later laughed about on Seth Meyers Full Story

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s rivalry is fast approaching Jimmy Kimmel-Matt Damon status. It’s slightly less mainstream, but these two have been “sparring” online for years, conveniently timed around the promotion of their respective projects. And after Hugh cozily posed with Emily Blunt at Variety’s Actors on Actors photocall a few days ago, John Krasinski is jumping into the chirping mix too Full Story

Here’s Timothee Chalamet at the London premiere of Beautiful Boy inspired by Harry Styles. Timmy was in great spirits – perhaps he knew that the movie was doing very well stateside at the box office.  Beautiful Boy posted one of the highest per-screen averages of the year, with around $55,000 per screen at four theatres in New York in LA. Full Story

By now, you’ve seen that photo of a nearly unrecognizable Nicole Kidman in Destroyer, with her ash grey hair and worn-out-looking eyes:  The buzz has been building steadily for her performance since its Telluride launch and knowing this, and knowing the first time it will be seen by a much bigger crowd of people (and critics!) would be in Toronto, well, you better believe Nicole Kidman would be ready to cash in on the hype. Full Story
