Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has claimed that the promo poster campaign reveals clues about the AMC show’s fifth season. The new poster features Jon Hamm‘s lead character Don Draper staring at a reflection of himself in a store window featuring mannequins. Speaking about the image, Weiner said that fans would understand its meaning once the fifth season concluded. “This is a dreamlike image,” Weiner told the New York Times. “It’s a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be. “By the end of the season, I guarantee you’ll know what (more) »

There is no one now or since quite like Marilyn Monroe, and her enduring appeal is understandable and this year, she’s going to Cannes.

The Cannes Film Festival has unveiled their poster for this year, and usual, it’s another beautiful piece of work. Marilyn Monroe is front and center, blowing out the candle for the 65th anniversary of the fest which should start announcing the films any day now….right? The one sheet somes in a long tradition of putting stars front and center, following Faye Dunaway last year and Juliette Binoche in 2010. Past years have seen beauties like Monica Vitti and Marlene Dietrich also grace the marketing materials for the fest. If the concept ain’t broke, why fix it.

Accusations of ageism fly around Hollywood all the time, but they seemed to be fairly definitively refuted in recent weeks when a 78-year-old became the hottest screenwriter in town after his film sold, attracted Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender, and was fast-tracked into production this May. Of course, it helps if that 78-year-old is Cormac McCarthy, the Pulitzer prize-winning author of “Blood Meridian,” “All The Pretty Horses,” “The Road” and the source material for Best Picture winner “No Country For Old Men.” But it’s still a rare achievement, to get a film from the page to a greenlight, with A-list talent attached, in only a matter of days.

How I Met Your Mother “Karma” – Recap

Neil Patrick Harris,

When you have such a powerfully beautiful episode like last week’s “No Pressure,” there’s a ton of fallout that needs to be dealt with. It’s natural story progression, but it can often bog things down because of the simple fact that they have to address all the changes that are happening. “Karma” was a fun episode of How I Met Your Mother, filled with good laughs and actually managed to make even more big changes to the dynamic of Himym, but it suffered from being pigeonholed into focusing on very specific storylines. We had to see Barney try and date Quinn. We needed to find out where Robin is going to live. And Ted needed to live by himself for awhile. This was all necessary, but it left very little wiggle room.
