Steve Carell and the Maybe-Good, Possibly Funny Children’s Book Adaptation With the Very Long Title

This is a trailer for a family movie with an immensely long name: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. If you’ve fancied yourself a reader of children’s literature and/or are the relative/creator of a small child anytime in the past 42 years, you may be familiar with Judith Viorst’s celebrated non-tome. The live-action adaptation, from The Kids Are All Right director Lisa Cholodenko, features Steve Carell and Donald Glover making a pirate joke.

Patton Oswalt just came up with a whole new way to do humor: apology tweets for heinous things he never actually said.

Jennifer Lawrence, in a single Marie Claire interview, says “nobody can stay beloved forever” and that she voted for Lupita to win the Oscar she was also nominated for.

Ellen Page on coming out: “For so long I just sort of thought, ‘You just can’t. I love being an actor, it’s a huge part of my life, so I’m going to keep that private.’ And, ‘Oh, I have to keep it private because my job is about creating an illusion’ and kind of all those bullshit excuses. Because I don’t see heterosexual actresses going to great lengths to hide their heterosexuality.”

You’ve really gotta watch this Big K.R.I.T. video.

Quentin Tarantino withdrew his Hateful Eight leak lawsuit against Gawker because it never made sense in the first place.

Rare glimpse into Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson’s relationship: “Still, she assures me that this [fourth] baby will truly be her last. Four days after giving birth to her, Rudolph found herself on the set of Anderson’s latest film, Inherent Vice, out in December. ‘It’s one of those things where you realize I obviously love this person because I would only say yes to him, but I also simultaneously want to kill him for asking me because he knows I’m not going to say no.’ Luckily, it was only a small part requiring Rudolph to sit at a desk. ‘When I see my face,’ she says, ‘all I can see is the water weight.’”
