We’ve all just resigned ourselves to Solo happening to us, right? Like a trip to the dentist—it’s just something we have to get through. A jaunty new trailer has been released to encourage us to take our Star Wars fan service with grace and good cheer, but the most this trailer musters for me is: I like that editing beat with the buttons after “Push it!”, and also the voice of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s droid (she is the creator of Sandra Oh's project Killing Eve Full Story

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver were photographed in New York on Friday working on Noah Baumbach’s new film. A Noah Baumbach film is a good reset for Scarlett. I’d like to see her in a smaller, quieter film. But my first thought when I saw these pictures was that if I were Scarlett Johansson, who’s been josting Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Did you see Star Wars: The Last Jedi this weekend? Did you love it? Or are you one of those fanboys bitching about it because it was too funny, or something?  I LOVED it…but it didn’t start off that way.  Read Full Intro
