    I’ve been watching some of his recent interviews, he’d so darn cute and charming.

  2. Mia4s says:

    But where is Oscar Is….no I’ll stop, John seems really lovely. ;-)

    Seriously though, I need some Poe Dameron but considering he’s off filming an epic movie with Christian Bale, my Oscar is forgiven…for now.

    My grandmother used to wear a pair of pants just like Goop’s for yard work, and for that reason, I like Goop’s denim look much more than Jamie Chung’s, which looks terribly uncomfortable. I am all about comfort.

    Yay for John!!! Yay, yay, yay!!! :)

  5. Kee says:

    He’s a very talented actor. Happy to see him getting these chances!

    Opening weekend expectations for films totally confuse me. Two years ago, Thor: the Dark World opened in November at 86+ million (20 mil over its predecessor)–but is considered practically a box-office flop. Now Spectre opens at 13 mil less (and in 2015 dollars) but everyone thinks that’s great? And by the way, Spectre cost a whopping 245 mil to make–wowza!
    Ant-Man and the most recent Mission Impossible both opened this summer to well under 60 mil, and their domestic gross totals aren’t great (MI did considerably better overseas, but the studio gets a much lower percentage of box office receipts.)
    So my point is this–what criteria is actually being used here to define flop and successes? Because it certainly isn’t box office–not with any consistency.

    • Mia4s says:

      Honestly you could get a headache trying to figure it all out. I don’t think Thor is considered a box office bomb, it’s just that it didn’t do much better than the first domestically and was poorly reviewed by many fans and critics. Captain America on the other hand was the complete opposite. So Thor is basically the disappointing sibling of the family.

      Bond has a general box office sweet spot (Skyfall was a major outlier) and makes tons of money in endorsements alone. Plus it’s been around so long one bad outing doesn’t matter because fans always come back. MI2 was crap and MI3 saw a big box office drop off. One wrong move and they are screwed. Different expectations.

      I’d say the key is expectations, actual box office, other revenue streams (endorsements, or, will people buy the bluray?), and yes an element of critical/audience reaction which helps predict if people will show up for the next one.

      • cr says:

        Even with all the tax breaks/endorsements Spectre’s going to have to make as much, or nearly as much as Skyfall to make a profit. At least from the box office.
        But there isn’t consistency as far as press is concerned as to whether or not something is considered a flop the first week or not.
        As for whether something is considered a flop, Some of it is expectations, and failing to meet them. And some movies that were considered flops by the media because they didn’t do well the first week ended up not being flops at all. But the media usually doesn’t pay attention to the final results: Box office, cable, dvd sales, etc.
        And if the new Star Wars doesn’t make over a billion at the box office will it be considered a flop?

      • TotallyBiased says:

        Thor the Dark World cost 20 mil more to make than the first Thor, and it made that up opening weekend–even though the first one opened in MAY! Overall box office, Thor 2 outdid Thor 1 by some 200 million. What were they expecting? Oh, and oddly–both Thor movies have outsold their respective Captain America films on DVD/blu Ray, too.

  7. Telly says:

    He is very unattractive. I don’t think we will ever see a unattractive young starlet get an opportunity like this.

  8. ncboudicca says:

    Sometimes my old eyes run things together – I mashed up “Kristin Stewart” with “Patrick Dempsey” and was flabbergasted that I had missed the news about PATRICK STEWART having marital problems. Thank God that was a mis-read!

  9. Cc says:

    John looks great in that cover. Handsome and classy.

  10. teacakes says:

    Anyone who didn’t know of him before the Star Wars thing happened, needs to watch Attack The Block. If you haven’t already, that is. It was the first movie that’s ever made me want to sit down and watch it all over again when it ended, THAT is how good it was. (and too bad Halloween’s done, it would be perfect for that)

    It’s a fantastic movie, and JJ Abrams and his School of TOP SECRETS could stand to learn from it just how to tell a decent story. And also that you don’t need lens flare in a movie featuring aliens!

    • I Choose Me says:

      Yes! I love that movie. Watched it three times just to catch all the things I missed before. The only thing I’d say was that the dead alien did look obviously like a puppet but other than that the movie was so entertaining.

    • SpunkyMama says:

      I remember watching that movie and he reminded me of a young Denzel Washington!

    • Nat says:

      Moses! NINJA!

      Attack the Block is such a great movie–filled with humour, frights, great music, and sly social commentary, too.

      • teacakes says:

        It’s one of the best movies of the last five years in a way that doesn’t shout ‘give me an Oscar, I AM SO SERIOUS AND DEEP!’. And it reminds me of Bring It On – seemingly frivolous story with a young cast, but with genuine and subversive (un-advertised) commentary lurking under all the fun crazy adventures.

  11. CeCe says:

    He’s come a long way since Attack The Block. Proud of this Peckham boy for doing so well. Brits in America always kill it, especially Londoners <3

  12. Zombie Shortcake says:

    Lol I just read that Starbucks/Jesus article and scrolled down to read the comments and someone had written: “Starbucks may or may not hate Jesus, but they definitely hate coffee.”

  13. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    I only know him from Attack From The Block and he was very good in it ( very at ease)

  14. Mrs Odie says:

    I think he’s very attractive. I would hit that like a tree on the Endor moon.
