The dearth of good blockbusters this summer has left the cinematic landscape wide open for smaller films to rise to the top—call it the Summer of the Sleeper Hit. Movies like The Shallows, The Purge: Election Year, and Lights Out have all done well in a wide-open market, and The Conjuring 2 has rather quietly become one of the most successful movies of the summer. Full Story

Yesterday the Toronto International Film Festival announced the first slate of films that will screen during the festival, from September 8-18. This is only the first wave of titles, and TIFF 2016 is already a doozy. I don’t even know where to begin sorting out the schedule. I guess with the opening night film which is The Magnificent Seven remake starring Denzel Washington Full Story

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.

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.
