Many nights (they’ve) prayed With no proof anyone could hear In (their) hearts, a hopeful song (They) barely understood Now (they) are not afraid Although (they) know there's much to fear (They) were moving mountains long Before (they) knew (they) could… There can be miracles when you believe Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill Who knows what miracles you can achieve When you believe, somehow you will You will when you believe This could be the lullaby Twi-Hards (perhaps these two who are all over him at the airport in Toronto) have been going to sleep listening to since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson broke up. Full Story

She’s shooting in New York so we’re getting new shots every day. Today Jennifer Aniston stepped out in a hat, denim shorts, a purple tee, and her usual. You know. Yesterday Jen wore white…with more, errm, support. And a black dress with that awful wig. I guess when you’re 44 years old and they still stand up so nice you’d want to show that off? We’re going to get a lot of Jen in the next few weeks. Full Story

Deadline broke the news yesterday that Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddie Mercury biopic that he’s been working on for a couple of years. Queen has creative approval of the film and apparently Cohen was pushing for a “gritty” R-rated version of Freddie’s story while the band wanted it to be more PG. Full Story

At the same time, he’s also turning it into a family holiday with his girlfriend.

Marvel’s dick was definitely the biggest at Comic-Con. But if there was a vote for Most Popular, among geeks and non-geeks, on the male side it was probably Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. On the female side… Please. Jennifer Lawrence. Of course. She had two projects to promote: Catching Fire, obviously, and X-Men which speaks to the extraordinary professional high she’s been riding as the heroine of two franchises each with its own independent fanbases and a good balance too. Full Story

It could have been a different Henry Cavill who showed up at Comic-Con this year. Off the success of his debut as Superman in Man Of Steel, winning over the nerd folk with his performance, Comic-Con could have been his victory party …only… well… he took some baggage to San Diego. Full Story

On Saturday, Marvel held their annual nerd rock concert in Hall H and totally buried Warner Brothers/DC’s announcement that the Man of Steel sequel will be a Superman/Batman match-up. That got a lot of screams earlier in the day but by the end of the night, all anyone was talking about was Marvel’s upcoming films, especially Guardians of the Galaxy. Full Story

Is it any surprise? It’s their second home. Marvel made an impressive showing on Friday in both Hall H for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and in Ballroom 20 for their TV venture, Agents of SHIELD. First up, the Agents of SHIELD panel in Ballroom 20. Agent Coulson himself, Clark Gregg, got a standing ovation when he was introduced—by far the biggest reaction for any Marvel actor except for Tom Hiddleston, and even then it was pretty close. Full Story

Dauntless at Comic-Con. It was a big day for Divergent at Comic-Con to kick off this year’s Dork Storm, as Sarah calls it. Look how many outfits Shailene Woodley had to wear. Woodley of course is the new would-be Kristen Stewart/Jennifer Lawrence, headlining the film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s book series. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston has been shooting Squirrels For The Nuts in New York this week. That wig she has to wear for the character is pretty sad. If you had to be in costume like that with a wig that sad for 8 hours a day or more, would you show up to set reminding everyone of the real thing? What is the real thing? The real thing is great hair, a tight body, toned legs, her favourite wedge sandals, and, you know, the front side well tweaked. Full Story
