In case you haven’t heard, summer 2014 is some weak-ass sh*t at the box office. We’re two-thirds of the way through the summer movie season and domestic tickets sales are down over 19%—that’s a staggering drop in revenue, especially since we were actually up nearly 10% over last year going into May. Full Story

Nicole Kidman acquired the rights to Kevin Wilson’s The Family Fang almost 3 years ago. Click here for my coverage of the story and my thoughts on the book. Briefly, The Family Fang is about Caleb and Camille Fang, renowned performance artists, who use their children in controversial public stunts (one of them involved the father prostituting his kids in a mall), secretly videotaping the public’s reaction, and then screening the footage at museums and galleries like it’s creative genius. Full Story

I don’t want to discount the importance of Marvel choosing to reimagine Thor as a woman for a new comic book run.

Rihanna was at the game on Sunday. She’s been all over the tournament on her Twitter account. So after Germany’s victory, she partied with the players and the players had the trophy, and she put her hands on it, and now the Daily Mail, because they haven’t sh-t on enough celebrities this week, are calling her out for violating FIFA regulations. Full Story
