The writing was on the wall, but even amid downgraded expectations, Fantastic Four managed a spectacular belly-flop over the weekend. Dismal reviews and bad word of mouth—the movie got a C- from CinemaScore—led to a dismal $26.1 million opening weekend Full Story

Well, Fantastic Four really sh*t the bed this weekend. All the problems plaguing the movie behind the scenes and dogging its disastrous release will be dealt with in a separate post, so that here we can simply focus on the final product, which is just the worst. It’s wrong-headed from the get, a giant f*ck you to both the idea of narrative consistency and the audience for having the temerity to expect a superhero movie—a genre about people with fantastical powers flying around and saving the world—to be any fun at all. Full Story

Ben Affleck spent the weekend in Atlanta with his kids and Jennifer Garner. Here they are, seen together as a family for the first time since we met Christine Ouzounian, the former nanny. He’s even wearing a smile on his face. To me it looks like a grateful smile. Grateful because she agreed to this, this outing, the opportunity to show everyone that they’re getting along, or at least that Jen’s willing to tolerate him. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Thursday night overload. I watched 5 hours of TV last night which is more than I sometimes watch in an entire week. The Canadian leaders’ debate was on. The Republican presidential debate was on. Jon Stewart said goodbye… And Dr Dre dropped his new album, Compton.  Read Full Intro

First sighting of Gwen Stefani since she and Gavin Rossdale announced at the beginning of the week that they’re divorcing. You may have heard – there are nanny rumours about their breakup too, just like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Just like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who also have three kids, speculation about Gavin’s faithfulness has been a discussion topic for a long time. Full Story

If you’ve seen Pitch Perfect 2, you know Hailee Steinfeld has a good voice. It’s a little scratchy and it sounds full. Also she can act. This is not a case of a talented person with one arm that’s stronger than the other, like JLO. We can all agree JLO’s voice is pretty thin, right? So Hailee Steinfeld’s released her first single, Love Myself. Full Story

Of all the people who showed up to wish Jon Stewart farewell, Stephen Colbert’s heartfelt goodbye was the best tribute of the night. He’s arguably the most successful of the Daily Show alums, and he was the last of the former correspondents to come out and say goodbye to Stewart, using an elaborate Lord of the Rings metaphor and the blowhard persona he developed on The Daily Show. Full Story

The Spice Girls are trending on Twitter. That’s because UK gossips are reporting that they’re reuniting to go on tour for the 20th anniversary next year… Without Posh. At least that’s the rumour. Mel B is the one who’s supposedly working on it. Before you pull out your platforms and Union Jacks though, it’s not entirely true. Full Story
