I mean, I guess Hawkeye deserves a poster ... I guess
Last week, Marvel Studios released a series of posters to promote the upcoming superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron starting with a group poster and then individual posters for Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Nick Fury … you know, the really important characters. Today, as a follow-up, Marvel decided to release a poster for Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner) who, honestly, isn’t the most exciting member of the Avengers team but … is a core member of The Avengers movie franchise so … I guess he deserves his own poster.

Here comes the Joker
When last we saw Jared Leto, he was still rockin’ his super long Jesus-like locks and his Jesus-like shaggy beard on Oscar night. Today we learn that Jared got a lot of his hair chopped off and all of his beard shaved off in preparation for his role as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. As you may recall, we learned previously that Leto signed on to play The Joker in the anti-hero movie Suicide Squad and to prep for the role, he’s been bulking up. It turns out that the final stage of preparation before filming stars was to cut off all of his hair. Click below to see the two photos shared by Suicide Squad director David Ayer that show us what Jared Leto looks like now that he’s been shorn and shaved. More »
The Hollywood Ball
The cast and crew of the new Disney live-action film version of Cinderella made their way to the El Capitan Theater for the Hollywood premiere of the film, which opens on March 13. Almost all of the main players were in attendance last night for the Hollywood premiere of Cinderella, as you can see in the gallery presented here. Lily James looked stunning in her beautiful dress and her Prince Charming, Richard Madden, looked quite dashing. Cate Blanchett is a goddess and even Grumpy Cat came out for the premiere event. Check out the photos, see how much fun was had at last nights Hollywood Ball for Cinderella and save the date, March 13 is the day that we will all get to see Cinderella come to life on the big screen.
And her apology video only made it worse
Guys. There is actually a teeny bit of vomit in my throat right now. But I’m gonna go ahead and keep writing for now. With my mouth clamped shut. Okay. Michelle Rodriguez has become another celebrity to fall prey to the random, TMZ street interview. I don’t get it. Why do people open up to the TMZ “reporters”?! Don’t you know they are there for one reason—to get you to say something stupid, for which you’ll have to apologize the next day? Well, I watched the video in which Rodriguez scoffed at “minorities” in Hollywood trying to “stealing all the white superhero roles.” She actually seemed kinda drunk to me, and I was hoping that was the case—that she wasn’t serious. I even laughed, because it sounded SO ignorant. Then came the “apology” video… in which she went on to blame “minorities” for being “lazy.” OMG. I flash backed to my interview with Spike Lee (yasss), where he made it very clear that the only problem blacks in Hollywood are having is money—funding for their projects. Of which there is often none, or very little. Anyway, click inside for this ridiculous, embarrassing shit.

The Super Friends
So far this week, Marvel Studios has released promo posters of Iron Man, The Hulk and the entire group of Avengers to promote the upcoming superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today we see that they released new posters for Thor, Nick Fury and Black Widow as well. Click through the gallery to see all of the Ultron posters that have been released this week … and keep in mind, Marvel is promising a “big announcement” next week. The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1 and all of this fun promo stuff is driving me crazy already!
She'll play a lawyer-turned-teacher
It’s official. Nobody is allowed to roll their eyes and sigh anymore, in response to a new Kristen Stewart film. Just kidding—this is not an official, worldwide decree. But after learning about her big Cesar win, I’m excited for her new projects. This particular project sounds really cool. Stewart will be playing a lawyer-turned-teacher in an untitled indie drama. She’ll be joining a few actors I really like, so click inside for more!
Billy Milligan was a rapist with multiple personality disorder
Well, this should be interesting… and perhaps even Oscar-worthy. Leonardo DiCaprio must be incredibly excited right now (and not just because he’s been uh kickin’ it with Rihanna), as he’s had his eye on this project and role for about two decades now. Billy Milligan was the first person to ever use multiple personality disorder as a criminal defense. In the 1970s he was charged with robbery and raping three women on the Ohio State University campus. The story is really interesting (and a little bit terrifying), and I suspect it will make for a good film. Click inside for more!
Seriously, this sounds SO BAD
Earlier today we learned the great news that two of the main characters in the forthcoming Jem and the Holograms comic book series will be gay but for every bit of good news we get about the Jem comic book series, we get really disappointing news about the Jem and the Holograms live-action movie. As you may recall, we got to see the first promo image from the forthcoming Jem movie earlier this week and today Universal Pictures follows up with the release of the official plot summary for the movie. As you can read below, the plot description of the movie bears absolutely no resemblance to the storyline from the Jem cartoon of the ’80s whatsoever. It sounds like this Jem movie has excised pretty much every thing about Jem and the Holograms that made the original cartoon so great. Ugh. More »
'Crossroads 2: Cross Harder'?!?
Okay, I don’t want you to freak out or anything but … OMG, it might be time to FREAK THE F*CK OUT! Actress Taryn Manning, who starred alongside Britney Spears and Zoe Saldana in the 2002 film Crossroads, gave an interview this week where she revealed her interest/desire to star in a sequel film. Naturally, a Crossroads sequel would depend entirely on Britney‘s decision to move forward with such a project but if Taryn says she’s in then that is a good thing. We know that Zoe Saldana had very nice things to say about her time working with Britney on the movie so she’d probably be in, too. Click below to read what Taryn Manning has to say about the possibility of Crossroads 2 and try not to let your head explode at the possibility of a new Britney Spears movie. More »
