Despite a stint on The Daily Show, hosting the popular geek show Attack of the Show!, a starring role on The Newsroom, and flirting with scandal,Olivia Munn has yet to break out. But that might be changing because she’s on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly, alongside Michael Fassbender and an unrecognizable Oscar Isaac. Full Story

The trailer for Sisters is out, and I want to write about it fast because soon the Emmy nominations will be all we can care about. But, after you watch, jockey with your friends for who’s watching it with whom and cackle over the shot of the…is that a clarinet? When you’re done with that, let’s talk about the Important Friendship of it all. Full Story

At Comic-Con The Hollywood Reporter gathered the casts of Batman vs Superman and Suicide Squad and sat them down for a class portrait that reinforces what I said about the dynamics during the WB/DC Hall H panel—while the Suicide Squad cast seems fun, the cast of Superhero Face Punch would really like to get back and finish their class project. Full Story

Check out Tom Cruise in London yesterday. I wonder if that’s home for him now. He’d been shooting Mena in Georgia for a few weeks but London’s been homebase for a while, for several of his last few movies. The next movie, as you know, is opening very soon. Two weeks until Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Full Story

So says GQ, putting her on the cover of their annual comedy issue. In advance of the issue’s release next week, they’ve released Schumer’s Star Wars-themed cover shoot, in which she’s dressed as Princess Leia and dances with stormtroopers. These kinds of photoshoots always remind me of that 30 Rock episode where Jenna warns Liz Lemon about doing “funny themed” photoshoots, because once you pose with the rubber chicken, they’ll never let you not pose with the rubber chicken. Full Story

Jesse Eisenberg was at Comic-Con. Was Jesse Eisenberg at Comic-Con because he’s in a small budget, independent movie shot in a café in Brooklyn from a screenplay written on an old-fashioned typewriter? Actually, no. Jesse was at Comic-Con for a movie called Batman vs Superman. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was in LA yesterday at a SAG event with Jake Gyllenhaal promoting Southpaw. That used to be the Gossip Genie, right? And now you're all about Rachel and Taylor Kitsch? I feel like only people who've watched FNL are into her with Taylor Kitsch. This is a growing number but still not a big enough number. Full Story

And solely because of Michael B. Jordan. The final trailer for the gritty reboot of Fantastic Four is out and it looks like all your least favorite parts of comic book movies—destruction on a massive scale, blue beams of light pointing at the sky, overly serious dialogue, overreliance on CGI, the Very Special Boy trope—mashed into one movie. Full Story

James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender at Comic-Con for X-Men: Apocalypse. And then were interviewed on Conan, talking about how fans have been shipping their situation. It’s a great video. They’re great together. They’re sexy together. Especially James. Even without hair. And he has great hair! It’s thick and wavy and hot. Full Story

This movie is a complete waste of time and no one should see it. I was actively angry the whole time I sat through it, and when it was over I vowed to ensure that no one else would ever have to suffer as I have suffered by wasting precious hours of their lives watching this stupid f*cking movie. I lost two hours of my life to Self/Less, hours in which I could have done so many other, enriching things, like go to a museum, attend a lecture, read a book, or stare at a blank wall. Full Story

Minions made big money at the box office this year. When I reviewed Home earlier this year I said it’s impossible to get mad at movies like this because they’re so thoroughly meant for small children and I am not that audience. But coming so close to the far superior Inside Out Full Story

Nerd Herd orgasms all weekend. Sarah’s already covered the Star Wars panel, and the Justice League, and then the dorks got all horny about the Suicide Squad appearance. Minus one. I don’t have a PhD in Geek so I’m not here to tell you what character is true to what character and how faithful this will be to the comics etc. Full Story
