So I wanted to pick your brains about your best movie-going (or movie-watching) experiences. Click inside for more!
Whatever. Keep hope alive.
I’m not sure if it’s still on there, but last month Revolutionary Road was on HBO Go , and it made me so happy. But then sad. Then happy. I have loved this movie since it first came out back in 2008, and I realized that I’m basically a teenager watching Titanic for the first time. I just want Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio to make it! But I know they won’t! And because we are all insane and obsessed with these two, Winslet is still explaining to the public why she and DiCaprio will never be. Click inside for more!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie.
Trent did an amazing job giving a not-so-spoilery review yesterday of Gone Girl. I just read it a minute ago, because I wanted to go into the theatre completely blind last night. Now, I’m going to SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL the hell out of this movie right now, so please GO AWAY if you haven’t seen it yet! One thing I told my partna-in-babymaking when we left was that I was so sad that I would never have that experience again—my “first time” with Gone Girl, lol. But really, as much as I can’t wait to watch the movie again, I know it will never be the same. I was having all of these thoughts last night about Rosamund Pike as Amy Dunne, and sex, and sexuality, and sex! And then this morning I found this piece on Gone Girl as “the Latest Film to Showcase Female Pleasure,” and things started to make more sense for me. Female pleasure… is everything, lol.

“Look for Louise from St. Louis”
WAAAAY back in 2010, we first heard rumors that a third Sex and the City movie was coming our way but after a few years of no news and certainly no movement on SaTC 3, it seemed like hopes for a third feature film installment of Sex and the City were dashed for good. THEN in February of this year, both Sarah Jessica Parker and SaTC executive producer Michael Patrick King starting talking about the possibility of making the third movie after all. Today we learn from actress Jennifer Hudson (who co-starred in the first Sex and the City movie) that she is in “talks” to star in Sex and the City 3 … which suggests that plans are deffo in the works for a third film. To this news I say, PRAISE JEBUS! HALLELUJAH!!! More »
The Rock to star?!
Yesterday we learned that the mobile phone video game Angry Birds is being adapted into a feature-length film and today we learn that another well-known property is also getting the film treatment. The ’90s TV series Baywatch is reportedly being adapted into a feature film and it sounds like Dwayne The Rock Johnson will star as the lead. David Hasselhoff, as you may know, was the lead star of the Baywatch TV series so it sounds like producers are going for a different feel for the movie version. Read on for more deets about this Baywatch movie plan. More »

Last night was a fun but long night for me. I met up with my friend Eileen for a double feature movie date at the Arclight theater in Hollywood for a showing of A Nightmare On Elm Street as well as a showing of Gone Girl. I’ve been anxious to see Gone Girl for months so I really wanted to see it at my earliest opportunity … but I also wanted the chance to see Nightmare on the big screen again. The Arclight screens classic horror films all throughout the month of October and Nightmare was the first movie on my list. Eileen had a free night so she was able to join me and a blast was had by us both. More »
"Let the streaming begin!!!!"
Earlier this week, Netflix announced that they are producing their first feature film — a sequel to the 2000 movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Today we learn that Netflix is planning to make even more feature films because they have signed Adam Sandler to produce four original films for the streaming video service. It would seem that Netflix is very serious about getting into the movie-making business … even if they are teaming up with a very unserious actor to do so. More »

In what was an inevitability in this age of uninspired movie ideas, today we learn that producers have decided to turn the wildly popular video game Angry Birds into an animated feature-length film. Angry Birds was created as a mobile video game but has since exploded into much more. In the summer of 2016, it will explode in movie theaters as a feature film starring the voices of Maya Rudolph, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Jason Sudeikis.

Yes, you will cry again
In early August, we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming Stephen Hawking biopic film The Theory of Everything and, as you may recall, that first trailer was a stunning look at what promises to be a powerfully emotional film. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for The Theory of Everything, which is just as wonderful as the first trailer. I made it about a minute into this new trailer until I felt the tears well up in my eyes but by the end, full blown crying. I’m just blown away by Eddie Redmayne‘s performance as Hawking IN JUST THESE TRAILERS. If the two trailers we’ve seen thus far are truly representative of the entire film, I predict awards glory come awards season. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. The Theory of Everything opens in theaters on November 7.
