Dear Gossips,

Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy was originally scheduled to open later. But, as Sarah wrote back in May, the studio moved up the release date to avoid Guardians Of The Galaxy. And it was the right move. Because Scarjo took out The Rock!

$44 million! Do you remember even seeing a red carpet or any kind of publicity tour for that film? Nope. She’s pregnant. She hasn’t been hustling. And the reviews weren’t great for Lucy either. But reviews aren’t great for many male-driven action movies. So if doesn’t matter for the men, why should it matter for the women?

Few women can topline this kind of feature.  Read Full Intro

Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriend Toni Garrn spent the weekend on a boat in Ibiza. One of his boys, Kevin Connolly was with them. One of his boys is ALWAYS with them. You know who else was in Ibiza? These are new shots of Lindsay Lohan in Ibiza. She and her friends were photographed at a beach club. Full Story

As expected, the Game Of Thrones panel at Comic-Con this weekend was a big deal. And it was a chance to say goodbye to a couple of our favourite characters. Also a look-ahead to Season 5. So here are Gidget and Oberyn Martell alongside Jon Snow and Arya Stark and the Hound and Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister who, for me at least, is quickly becoming the Pacey Witter of this show. Full Story

I mean, it’s always going to be Tony Stark, right? Or RDJ. Interchangeable at this point. With all the charisma, because he’s always going to SHOW UP, everyone else seems like a supporting character, especially the ones who are coming in new. Fine. You got me. I just needed an excuse to dedicate a standalone post to Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Full Story

First, Marvel’s panel started nearly twenty minutes late. Then, they didn’t announce anything new, except that the Guardians of the Galaxy’s pre-destined sequel will open on July 28, 2017. There was no news on Dr. Strange, or long-awaited confirmation of a Black Panther and/or Captain Marvel movie. Full Story

While it’s unclear if Nina Dobrev knew about Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed making out at the Entertainment Weekly party, she was definitely there, and changed into flip-flops when she left… With Ben McKenzie. They were hugging each other at one point, in clear view of the paps. Full Story

Duana’s the name expert. And she’s always on about how she prefers that siblings be named consistently. Like if you’re going to call your son Brody, maybe a classic Esther for your daughter isn’t a great fit. Something like that. I’m sure she has a better example. This post is not about naming siblings. Full Story

Warner Brothers did a good job of keeping the appearance of Zack Snyder and comics’ Holy Trinity (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman) a secret in the run up to their panel on Saturday morning in Hall H. When Snyder took the stage and introduced his trio of stars, it felt like a legit surprise, and made for a great Hall H moment—the first time the Trinity has appeared together. Full Story

Sarah has written at length about Comic-Con strategy – how often false hype can be generated out of San Diego (Sucker Punch) that ultimately leads to disappointment. But Comic-Con can also be a legitimate momentum build, especially for projects that seemed worrisome, projects that may have been burdened by the weight of expectation. Full Story

Masters of Sex Season 2 Episode 3 recap An unusual episode. None of our usual players (though possibly a starmaking turn for Elliot, you know?) and just one main location. Part of the glory of making a show that is not a procedural is that you can experiment with formats and types of shows and stretch the limits of what your show is. Full Story

Chris Martin spoke about the conscious uncoupling during a radio interview that’s supposed to air today on Valentine In The Morning. There’s been a lot of speculation recently about whether or not he and Gwyneth Paltrow are reconciling. Full Story

Wonder Woman’s new look

After having the new costume for Wonder Woman teased last month, at Comic-Con on Saturday Zack Snyder unveiled the first look for his cinematic version of the character, and it’s not bad. It’s still pretty T&A for a character who is supposed to be a warrior first and foremost, but let’s be real—it could have been much worse. Full Story

She’s a girl who gets what she wants, sometimes much to our surprise, especially when it comes to romance. But you can’t game your way to a baby. And right now, she really, really wants a baby. She’s young. She’s healthy. She’s resourceful. In her mind, it should have happened by now. Full Story
