Here’s a fun surprise—a movie that was not really on my radar, Star Trek Beyond, turned out to be the most fun and well-made summer action movie since Captain America: Civil War. In 2009, JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek, but his heavily Star Wars-influenced take on the material displeased classic Trek fans (they’ve asked not to be called Trekkies anymore). Full Story

Suicide Squad comes out a week Friday. So the press will keep building and building after the team’s showing at Comic-Con. Yesterday Jared Leto Instagrammed a new photo of himself in character as the Joker. I checked it this morning. Note the third comment, repeated:  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m not finished talking about Ghostbusters yet. My friend Lorella and her husband took their two sons, 12 and 8, to the movies this weekend. It was between The Secret Life Of Pets and Ghostbusters. When it was time for Lorella to vote, she told her kids that she was voting for Ghostbusters because some people are against it and she wanted to show support with her money.  Read Full Intro

The summer Trainspotting came out, we were obsessed with it. It was hot all the time and we were allowed a little more freedom than we had been before. We were using most of it to go downtown, to see and buy and consume things that weren’t available at the mall or the Blockbuster. We would get off the subway and walk down the grotty Yonge Street strip to the Uptown Theatre, which was kind of delightfully grotty itself, and then watch Trainspotting. Full Story

Most people who came out of Captain America: Civil War wanted more Black Panther. As Sarah keeps repeating, this is what we all want next. And soon. But while there’s a new Thor in production (no one is more excited about the third Thor movie than Tom Hiddleston), the standalone Black Panther doesn’t come out until 2018. Full Story

Sarah covered WB’s superhero onslaught at Comic-Con earlier today. For me, like her, the highlight of all that was Wonder Woman. Otherwise the Warner Bros release I’m most looking forward to is Fantastic Beasts. Another trailer was presented during the panel along with wands but not before they all cast the spell, with Eddie Redmayne Full Story

Warner Brothers had a good morning in Hall H on Saturday, but then it was Marvel’s turn, and Marvel came ready to play. And play they did, basically conducting their panel like a rock concert, and even though they only released one trailer to the wider public, just the descriptions of the videos for Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Guardians of the Galaxy vol. Full Story

Though they showed off two major superhero teams, the biggest hit of the DC Films portion of Warner Brothers’ presentation was the first trailer for Wonder Woman. It is everything I hoped and dreamed. If this movie turns out bad, if it doesn’t live up to this trailer, I will be heartbroken. Full Story
