Brad Pitt

  1. [UPDATED] Looking For More Women In True Detective Season 2? HBO Might Have A Jessica Chastain For That.

    Oh Really?

    HBO's debut season of True Detective was an intense and riveting ride. The show starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson (always an amazing team) in the lead roles, however, they told a complete story. That left many wondering where the series would go for Season 2. The internet even started a fantastic meme trying to cast the next leads but we finally have a hint as to who might take on the task - Jessica Chastain.

  3. World War Z Has Made Enough Money to Get Itself a Sequel. Please, God, No.

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    I saw World War Z over the weekend. I'm a big fan of the book, and the way the trailers made the movie look completely different threw me off quite a bit. But I tried to give the movie the benefit of the doubt. It added a main character where there wasn't one before, sure, but that doesn't necessarily torpedo its quality. And if the trailers make Brad Pitt's Gerry look like a boring, cookie-cutter, man-has-to-save-humanity-and-also-get-back-to-his-family protagonist... well, it would hardly be the first time a trailer misrepresented its movie. World War Z might not be a good adaptation of the book, but it still could have been a good movie by itself. But lo, it wasn't. There were some good bits, but on the whole it was an unremarkable movie. And now it's getting a sequel. And we've found out what the original—better, in my view—ending to the movie was. You can taste the wasted potential.

  4. Super Woman Angelina Jolie Describes Her Double Mastectomy In Surprise New York Times Op-Ed

    Today in Boobs

    Angelina Jolie has never been one to sit back and let the world happen around her, so we probably shouldn't have been surprised when news broke of the actress undergoing a double mastectomy as a preemptive move again breast cancer. That's just how she rolls.

  5. New World War Z Trailer’s a Chaotic Mess, Like Every Zombie Apocalypse Should Be

    The film adaptation of Max Brooks' novel World War Z continues to chug along. At this point, it's really only morbid curiosity that keeps us interested, but that's probably the right kind of curiosity to have when it comes to films based around zombies. The latest trailer shows off a whole lot of nothing while still managing to include The Sound That Every Movie Trailer Has Now to indicate the seriousness of the subject matter. Brad Pitt plus zombies should still make for a fairly good time, but this trailer might not convince anyone straddling the fence.

  6. Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent Gets Two Tiny New Cast Members

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    From the start, Maleficent is a Disney movie we've been looking forward to, after all, how many Disney villains can boast a move to live action and in an entire movie about themselves? Then, Angelina Jolie got involved, and Paul Dini and Linda Woolverton (both veteran animation writers) signed on to write, and we decided to treat our hopes as more than unfounded. Jolie won't be the only member of the Jolie-Pitt family to appear in the film, however. We found out this summer that four-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt would be playing a young princess Aurora (the full grown role will go to Elle Fanning). But like most families with young kids, if you give one of them a treat, you better be prepared to treat the rest, too. Fair's fair!

  7. Damon Lindelof to Rewrite the Already-Shot World War Z

    Nope. Still Not Happening.

    Already headed for seven weeks of reshoots, World War Z is still nowhere near ready for post-production. In fact, the part of the movie that wouldn't even allow the movie to exist -- the screenplay -- is getting another pass by Damon Lindelof. Rewrites are not strange. Rewrites after a movie has been shot are definitely troubling. What in the world is so wrong with this movie that they're bringing in the Lost (and Prometheus) writer in at this stage of the game?

  8. Anne Rice To Stephenie Meyer: Your Vampires Suck

    the internet is serious business

    Vampire Chronicles author Anne Rice has started another catfight...a vampfight...a batfight...whatever, you get the idea, with Twilight author Stephanie Meyer. Interesting timing considering Twilight: Breaking Dawn is about to make another bajillion dollars at the box office.

  9. Kick-Ass UK Premiere Coverage? More Like, Coverage of the Screenwriter’s Breasts

    Kick-Ass' premiere in the UK last night presented British media outlets with a grand conundrum: how to make a big studio release about a relatively obscure comic palatable and understandable to the proles?

    You could: talk about the source material and the complicated legacy of Mark Millar (boring), focus on the movie's controversies around violence and swearing (better), or sidestep the film entirely by talking about how celebrities like Brad Pitt are in attendance (much better).

    But then: What if the (female!!!) screenwriter behind the movie -- one Jane Goldman, wife of British TV personality Jonathan Ross -- happens to be wearing a low-cut top? Now we're getting somewhere:
