I find the Important Stuff so you don’t have to.
5. Patsy and Edina Put the World on Alert for Their AbFab Olympic Special.
To hell with lighting the torch, Patsy’s cigarette needs fire. In between the athletic competitions you can tune in complete madness on BBC One Monday, July 23rd at 9:30 pm, or BBC America Wednesday, July 25 at 10 p.m. EST.
4. The Bourne Legacy Went to Great Lengths to Convince Us Jeremy Renner is an Action Hero.
Renner’s a powerful, if not tiny package—but are we buying what he’s selling? I still can’t decide.
3. Hugh Bonneville Donned a Nifty Tee at the “Downton Abbey” Press Tour.
Season 3 addition Shirley MacLaine claims that she and Maggie Smith “…were lovers in another life,” and related this cute tale:
(Smith) told me that we had met 40 years ago backstage at the Oscars next to the catering table. And I was up for something, and there was this big chocolate cake on the catering table. And whatever I was up for, I lost, and somebody else won. And Maggie said, “You know what you did, dear? You tucked right into that chocolate cake and said, ‘F—- it. I don’t care if I’m thin ever again.’”
Not many details about the new season were discussed; Whited out for very minor spoilers: The Crawleys will suffer a financial crisis, Matthew and Mary travel a “rocky road” toward matrimony and beloved Bates’ situation will be resolved. End Spoilers.
2. Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master Trailer Debuted.
After all that “drugged-out,” bearded, quitting acting nonsense, Joaquin Phoenix is on a mission to make us respect him again. If he keeps this kind of thing up, it just may work.
1. We Got Our First Look at Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel Teaser.
(Kevin Costner [Jonathan Kent] Voiceover)
(Russell Crowe [Jor-El] voiceover)
If you ran out to see The Dark Knight Rises this weekend, you’ve already been treated to this beautiful trailer, but it’s worth another look (or two).
Cindy Davis wants both Bonneville and his t-shirt.
