Bad Times at the El Royale, Drew Goddard’s follow-up to The Cabin in the Woods is at once completely like that movie and nothing like that movie. Getting into the specifics of how El Royale works would spoil it, but one important thing to know is that despite the ominous trailer and Goddard’s previous genre work, El Royale is not a horror movie. Full Story

Xavier Dolan deserves a break

I have a ton of respect and admiration for Xavier Dolan. It’s hard not to, right? He’s 27. Every profile or review of his work mentions his age. He’s had movie after movie at Cannes, so much acclaim, directed Adele’s Hello video, has an LV campaign and is working on an English-language debut with Jessica Chastain in the lead role. Full Story

It’s that time of year again, with the Cannes Film Festival kicking off on Wednesday amidst unprecedented security measures. Usually the pre-Cannes stories are all about yachts, parties, prostitutes, and producers (the 3 Ps), but this year it’s all about the crazy security in place. Full Story

Rest assured: when you invite Jessica Chastain to a party, there will be dancing. ... lots and lots of dancing. This year, she danced in peacock blue Prada and finally broke out of her Jessica Rabbit Givenchy rut that Lainey finds herself begrudgingly writing about all too often Full Story

Leo’s boys have been posting photos all over Asia, so I can only assume that they have joined him in India, where he met with environmentalist and activist Sunita Narain. He rarely posts photos of himself on Instagram so you know he’s being serious. It’s nice to see him on vacation minus the yacht/model entourage. Full Story

Adele, actor

Adele. Hello. It’s blowing up all our phones. And we’re now 3 weeks out from hearing the entire album on November 20th. Like I said last week, it’s going to be the soundtrack of my holiday when Jacek and I leave on November 21. To promote the single and 25, Adele’s been doing press all over the place. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Hello from the other side…

My first order of business today was to buy Adele’s Hello. Then watch the video. It’s the theme song to the weekend. Last weekend I was predicting a Brange takeover. Turns out there has been a takeover…but it belongs to Adele.

As we found out yesterday, Hello was shot in Montreal, directed by Xavier Dolan. It’s a perfect partnership. If you’ve seen his film Mommy you’ll remember that there were several music montages, at least one to Celine Dion. Xavier loves women. And he ADORES a ballad.

Also… if only we could all be lit like this. Not like Adele needs a lot of help but holy sh-t, she is glorious in this video. And more theatrical than we’ve ever seen her. Did you know that she worried that no one would care? She’s been doing press all day and told the BBC that she had doubts about the promo that aired during The X Factor a few days ago, just a few bars of the song and the lyrics on the screen, and that maybe people wouldn’t know.

As IF.

No one’s fighting about Adele, right?

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. If you’re in Vancouver, I’m at the Vancouver Writers Fest this weekend for four events starting tomorrow, Saturday. The first is a conversation with Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl On The Train. Click here for more information.

There are have been a lot of posts about assholes today. But we started the day on someone who’s not an asshole (Cary Fukunaga) so let’s end the day the same way. Also I want us to be in a good mood in preparation for tomorrow. You know what’s tomorrow? Adele! The new single will be released. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Yesterday, the Cannes Film Festival announced its full jury for this year. And many are calling it the most physically attractive jury ever which I’m sure will go over well with the jury members. Still, it’s not like you can’t see it, right? Jury co-presidents Ethan and Joel Cohen will be joined by 7 others including Sophie Marceau, Rokia Traore, Guillermo del Toro, and Canada’s cinematic wonderboy Xavier Dolan because – can you believe it? – at just 26 years old, he’s had four films in the festival and doesn’t have one ready yet for this season so he has time to judge.  Read Full Intro

Xavier Dolan's duelling enfant terrible and wunderkind personas have become his trademark, often overshadowing his immense talent. Remember, this 25-year-old won the Cannes Jury Prize for his fifth film, Mommy, in May, but barely eight months earlier, he bit back at an unflattering review in The Hollywood Reporter, tweeting, "kiss my narcissistic ass. Full Story
