Batman vs Superman Trailer Leaks, Internet Has No Chill


-There’s so much nerd rage over the leaked Batman vs Superman trailer. You can watch it here until it gets pulled. It’s so dark — like, literally dark. I squinted my way through that whole thing.

-Speaking of trailer excitement, Matthew McConaughey’s “reaction” to the Star Wars teaser is blowing up the internet. (It says something about McConaughey that for a second I actually wondered if it was real….)

-In other blockbuster news, this article about why Michelle MacLaren dropped out of directing the Wonder Woman movie is disturbing. What studio opts for more a more “character-driven story” over epic action? That studio does not exist. Were they worried that a woman couldn’t pull off set pieces and should stick to scenes with character talking about their feelings?

-Just when you thought it was over: WikiLeaks has published 173,000 leaked emails from the Sony hack. Highlights include Cameron Crowe cracking a joke about Bruce Jenner’s transition and calling Bradley Cooper an “odd bird,” and David O. Russell apparently got so rough with Amy Adams that Christian Bale had to come to her defense.

-John Krasinski doing the “Bye Bye Bye” move on Lip Sync Battle made my week.

-Michael Buble is trying to walk back that Instagram photo.

-This is the Kardashian profile we deserve: “She is the regal JFK to her mother’s liquor-running Joe Kennedy.”

-Guys, we almost lived in a world where Josh Hartnett played Batman. Mull that over for a sec.

-Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones confirmed that they’re back together.

-Good news: Sarah Jessica Parker is coming back to HBO. Better news: it’s not for another SATC movie.

-Guillermo del Toro confirms Pacific Rim 2 is coming April 2017. Bring on more Idris!

-Sundance smash Dope has a new trailer.

-It’s like the producers of Lip Sync Battle were crawling around in my brain when they pitted Anna Kendrick against John Krasinski.

-Also, Anna Kendrick is writing a book! It’ll be a collection of “humorous autobiographical essays“.

-Ryan Gosling might be starring in the Blade Runner sequel. I hate the idea of a sequel on principle, but if it’s gotta happen, it could be worse.

-Speaking of sequels we don’t necessarily need but have interesting casting rumours, Jonah Hill and Emma Stone might be in the next Ghostbusters.

-Tom Hardy in a suit is what dreams are made of.

-Nothing makes me laugh harder than this Jezebel’s writer’s continued and irrational hatred of Ansel Elgort.

-Leave it to Amal Clooney to wear a pink tweed outfit and somehow not look like she’s doing a bad Marg Simpson impression.

-Nicki Minaj confirmed those engagement rumours by posting a photo of what might be the ugliest ring ever made.

-Gwyneth Paltrow admitted that she only made it four days on her $29 food bank challenge. Maybe it’s because she bought too many limes?

-Here’s the first trailer for David Duchovny’s new NBC show. I want to believe — but I’m not sure about this one.

-Such a good article on TV. I feel like I “hope watch” shows a lot more than I “hate watch.”

-Joshua Jackson is the perfect boyfriend. That is all.

-Maybe Michael Buble should stay away from all cameras ever. It never ends well for him.

-I didn’t even think I cared about the new Star Wars movies all that much but the new trailer for The Force Awakens hit me in all the feels.

Blake Lively Talks Gossip Girl, Breast Feeding


-Blake Lively has mastered the eyeroll-inducing interview, but calling Gossip Girl “a little personally compromising” and saying breast feeding is a “full-time job” reaches new heights.

-Meanwhile, her hubby Ryan Reynolds got into a little scrap with a pap and when CBC tried to interview him about it, he said he wouldn’t talk to them unless they bring Beachcombers back.

-It’s possible I spent wayyyyy too much time today reading groupie stories from Reddit. I’m not proud.

-Azealia Banks is dating Jesse Bradford? My brain is unable to compute that.

-For those of us who worried the Dennis Quaid video was real, we can now sleep better at night. It’s just a Funny or Die bit.

-Oooohhhh…there’s talk that Angelina Jolie could direct either Captain Marvel or Wonder Woman.

-Kendra the Vampire Slayer is now Beyonce’s stepsister.

-Speaking of Buffy alums, Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz flirting on Twitter fills my fangirl heart with squees.

-Nicki Minaj might be engaged, guys.

-Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone just can’t stop making movies together.

-Also, Ryan just proved that even he can’t make jet black hair not look evil.

-Girls star Jemima Kirke opened up about her abortion in a PSA for reproductive rights.

-Netflix has already renewed Orange is the New Black for season 4, and celebrated by releasing a new clip from season 3.

-Gwyneth Paltrow skipped her food challenge to go on a date.

-Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan are two badass rabble-rousers in the new Suffragette teaser.
