We have an Age of Ultron poster! If you squint, you can make out a character who appears to be Vision right below Mark Ruffalo’s credit. The quality is a bit… iffy. Marvel artist, David Aja, pretty much nails it with this tweet.

As everyone is aware by now, Fifty Shades of Grey premiered in theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day (because who doesn’t love stalking and abuse?). Jenny Trout took another one for the team and went to see the movie and wrote up this hilarious review of the slightly less terrible adaptation (“I’ve been on connecting flights that were more painful than any of the BDSM in this movie.”). Sorry guys, no inner goddesses bounding around the screen while the serial killer from The Fall puts on his sex jeans and rails Melanie Griffith’s daughter.

Here you can see Jenny along with her her friend and fetish model, Miss Quin, talk about the movie at length. I highly recommend it because they’re both hilarious and engaging.

This adorable custom Hawkeye Funko bobblehead is being auctioned off to help raise money for Jesse Acosta and his family. Acosta is receiving treatment for cancer of the tongue and throat while his wife is expecting their first child next month. All proceeds from the winning auction bidder will go to helping off-set the medical costs this young family is incurring in the process of treatment. The auction ends Sunday, March 1.

Gillian Anderson has joined Jim Broadbent in a new BBC adaptation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. If you’re like us and can’t get enough Gillian, check out her short film, The Departure, a prequel to “A Streetcar Named Desire,” where she appears as Blanche DuBois. I was lucky enough to catch the LiveNation screening of the production of “Streetcar” last year and she was absolutely devastating as the troubled Blanche.
