Save Me, Save Me from Tomorrow: Five Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

I find the Important Stuff so you don't have to.

5. Celebrity Rumors Ran Wild This Weekend.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Were Getting Married Saturday! Or Wait, Maybe It's Next Weekend...


The Commonwealth has William and Kate; we make do with Brangelina. As with most of our "royalty" (Depp, Madonna, The Goopster, Clooney) the couple seems reluctant to claim their association to the United States, preferring instead to reside at a posh South of France estate. And so after a flurry of activity outside their home--aka Chateau Miraval--this weekend, entertainment outlets are duked it out over Wedding/Not Wedding rumors. Pitt's parents and "Angelina's jeweler" Robert Procop were said to have arrived, and a large outdoor tent erected. Naysayers reminded that French law requires marriages to take place at the town hall, but heck, if anyone can finagle an exception, it's Le Brange. As of this writing, speculators have changed the date to August 18th; it only makes sense that preparations for this sort of shindig would have begun early. Let us keep our collective ear to the ground and our neck hair on alert. The first to report wedding goosebumps should immediately set off the Angelina Is Pregnant frenzy.

Meanwhile Back in Sad JenLand™, the corresponding Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Broke Up Gossip Flew.


I've got about as much reliable information on this one as the wedding rumor. First the Broken Up headlines rang out, followed by the reassuring publicist denial (Maybe it's next week?). What we should keep in mind is that back in the day, that same publicist also denied Pitt and Aniston were over. Trust no one. And if it turns out to be true, we should all maintain a candlelight vigil to get poor Jen through the maybe-wedding business--then find her a good better therapist.

Updated: And, apparently the best way to negate the breakup rumors is to get engaged. Take that Brange! It's a race to the aisle, people.

4. We Were Alerted to the Coolness of the Frankenweenie Soundtrack.

Tim Burton is at his best (lately) with animated features. The Frankenweenie promos have been adorable, and now its eclectic soundtrack listing has been announced. Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O. follows up that kick-ass version of Immigrant Song (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) with an "unconventional love song," Strange Love. Additionally, The Cure's Robert Smith contributed Witchcraft, and actress Winona Ryder (who voices Elsa van Helsing) did a song as well. Here's the full soundtrack:

Strange Love - Karen O
Electric Heart (Stay Forever) - Neon Trees
Polartropic (You Don't Understand Me) - Mark Foster
Almost There - Passion Pit
Pet Sematary - Plain White T's
With My Hands - Kimbra
Everybody's Got a Secret - AWOLNATION
Immortal - Kerli
My Mechanical Friend - Grace Potter featuring The Flaming Lips
Lost Cause - Imagine Dragons
Underground - Grouplove
Building a Monster - Skylar Grey
Witchcraft - Robert Smith
Praise Be New Holland - Winona Ryder

3. ScreenWerks Edited Together an Entertaining Remix of "Inside the Actor's Studio" Guests' Responses to the Proust Questionnaire.

Fuck those leaf blowers.

2. The First Images from Darren Aronofsky's Noah Were Released.


Building the ark:


The director has been working on the script for his Black Swan follow-up since 2004, and interested in Noah since he was a child. Being Aronofsky, his version of Noah's tale may differ from the usual--in an interview he discussed Genesis' "dirty stories" and how Noah was "the first person to plant vineyards, drink wine and get drunk." Led by Russell Crowe in the title role, the cast includes Sir Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Kevin Durand, Douglas Booth, Marton Csokas and Mark Margolis. The film is set for a March 28, 2014 release.

1. A New Lawless TV Spot, Featurette, Infographics and Photos Made the Rounds. We are Putty in John Hillcoat's Hands.








The bootlegging brothers' gangster saga hits theaters August 29th.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    'The Commonwealth has William and Kate; we make do with Brangelina.'
    I'll gladly arrange a trade.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Is Noah wearing a cork bandolier?

  • Ted

    Cindy... Avarice & Greed! are going drive over the endless sea

  • John W

    Who is that playing Helen Morgan?

  • kirbyjay

    I believe that is an actual picture of Helen Morgan.

  • Anne Lucchesi

    I know you were going for the French effect calling Brangelina Le Brange, but in my head I am hearing it as part of ZZ Top's La Grange and that makes me so much happier. I doubt they are ZZ Top fans though :(

  • Ballymena Bob

    I've never seen an entire episode of "Inside the Actor's Studio" and only know of it from the occasional clip on YouTube plus several references in "The Simpsons" but I have to say, that bloke with the neatly trimmed beard is really fucking creepy. The three words that come to mind are oleaginous, obsequious and vampire.

  • llp

    I am very excited for that soundtrack. I am not sure what that says about me, as I have only seen one trailer for the movie.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    That poster photo of Bugsy Siegel doesn't do him justice, the man was a looker.

  • Bedewcrock

    That man has some sad eyes.

  • Nadine

    I'll just be that guy, over hear, baffled at a Biblical movie with the whitest cast in all of christendom.

  • Samantha Klein

    Russell Crowe wins the scruffy hotness award for ever and ever and ever; I don't care what anyone says. Hellooooo, Noah.

  • Jezzer

    Yes, nothing gets me wetter than a humorless douchebag prone to throwing tantrums and telephones who also thinks he is God's Gift to Music. Yum.

  • kirbyjay

    Amen on the Russell hotness. Maximus, Robin Hood, Bud White, Jack Aubrey and now Noah! Russell will always be my #1-5 on the Pajiba hot list.
    No androgyny on this man. No Cumberbunches or Hiddlestones, no Skarsgards or Fassbenders, just one big hairy man. Yummy!

  • Jeni lee

    Agree! I was just watching L. A. Confidential recently, and he is the hotness for sure!
    On another note, is Brad Pitt wearing those glasses for effect? As in they do not appear to have actual lenses. Remember the always wearing a hat phase? Whatever.

  • Samantha Klein

    I really need to rewatch that one. It's been forever.
