One of the approximately half-a-dozen or so Guillermo del Toro projects I’m looking forward to (he’s a busy dude) is Crimson Peak, the director’s subversion of the gothic romance genre (with ghosts!). If that basic idea isn’t enough to grab you, del Toro’s gone and booked some really good actors: Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch, Emma Stone, and Charlie Hunnam.READ MORE

There’s not a moment as transcendentally beautiful as Centaur!Gary Oldman from last year’s Jimmy Kimmel Live post-Oscar short film parody. But you know what? Movie: The Movie 2V is still pretty darn funny. An odd assortment of Avengers, plus S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jessica Chastain, fighting off a horde of sexy vampires, mummies, and zombies? I’ll take it.

Not shown: the reporter who decided to call her “Annie” (her next film role) rather than learn how to pronounce her name beforehand, and got yelled at by a nine-year-old. True story. But it wasn’t just about meeting reporters for Wallis. It seems like she made quite a few new friends at the Oscars:READ MORE

“I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry. Filming The Help was the most amazing experience and yet, that is the film Im most asked about in regards to ‘fighting on set’. Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along? I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they’ve all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness. I’ve done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent. I’ve told her how beautiful her film work is. Please don’t allow the media to perpetuate the myth that women arent supportive of each other. Everytime an actress is celebrated for her great work, I cheer. For the more brilliant their performance, the more the audience demands stories about women. With support and encouragement, we help to inspire this industry to create opportunities for women. And as we all know: a great year for women in film, is just a great year for film.” – Zero Dark Thirty and Mama actress Jessica Chastain writing on her Facebook page in what appears to be a response to a ShowbizSpy story, “Jessica Chastain Hates Jennifer Lawrence.”

Children are not to be trusted. At least, that’s what a lifetime of horror-movie ingestion has taught us. If it’s a child- or child-shaped – don’t go near it, and definitely, absolutely, do not adopt. Ever. But, tired as the demonic child archetype may seem, don’t let the marketing for Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick MAMA fool you. Andres Muschietti’s debut mainstream feature is a classy, modern, often surprising take on the monster-in-the-house formula. Though it does nothing new where plot content is concerned, it gets points for style and execution. MAMA is a delicious morsel, to be sure, if not particularly substantial, delivering its goods in due course, with a few new ingredients. A new ice cream flavor is still ice cream, but we’ll take a new spin on a classic if it’s tasty.
(Contains less of what we might call “spoilers” and more “things that can be inferred from the trailer and promotional materials”. However, if being kept in the dark is important, proceed with caution.)READ MORE

When Guillermo del Toro tells you something is one of the scariest thing he’s ever seen, it might be time to close your eyes. But for the purposes of this post, don’t do that, just make sure to go use the restroom first. Andy Muschietti and sister Barbara Muschietti created this short, which caught del Toro’s attention and got him behind the feature length film, Mama, starring Jessica Chastain and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
