rebecca hallWell there is little competition in theatres this weekend as Iron Man 3 is finally released in North America. To kick off the Entertainment Link-Off this week, I am not going to start off with Gwyneth Paltrow, who just happened to be named “most beautiful” by People’s magazine. Instead, I’ll go with the other leading lady Rebecca Hall. 

After the jump, Damon Lindelof talks about the struggles of World War Z, threequels galore, special Iron Man 3 China edition isn’t so special after all, the world’s smallest movie premieres, watch a disturbing sci-fi short film, a few new movie trailers to check out and JJ Abrams chats with Simon Pegg about Star Wars.

New study shows that quite a few people think that movie trailers give away too much of the movie. Fine, to those people that whine about this, just don’t watch it and wait til the movie comes out! How hard can that be? (The Hollywood Reporter)

With Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby coming out soon, it’ll become the fifth adaptation of the story. So how does it rank compared to the predecessors? Well let’s take a look at the previous attempts and then wait til May 10th to find out. (Newsday)
