Strangely timed considering San Diego Comic-Con was in full swing, Scarlett Johansson scored the biggest non-Marvel opening of her career as "Lucy" debuted to an estimated $44 million to top the box office. With a production budget of $40 million, Luc Besson's Sci-Fi thriller could be a strong performer for both the director's own financing company, Europa, and distributor Universal Pictures. The success of "Lucy," which had a huge $17.1 million opening day means Johansson has a legitimate career as an action star outside of her Black Widow Marvel Universe persona. Whether she decides to explore that remains to be seen. Up until now her biggest opener, outside of Marvel, was the ensemble romantic comedy "He's Just Not that Into You" which earned $27.7 million in 2009. Summer movie season is never easy and "Lucy" will face some stiff competition on Friday when Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" hits theaters. Another film that will »

With Nick Nolte and Robert Redford teaming up for the adaptation of Bill Bryson's memoir A Walk in the Woods we were already pretty excited. Then the addition of Borat director Larry Charles sweetened the deal even more. However, a new report from Deadline reports He's Just Not That Into You and "The Office" director Ken Kwapis will be at the helm, so we're a little less interested. But with that news also comes the addition of Nick Offerman ("Parks & Recreation"), Kristen Schaal ("Bob's Burgers"), Emma Thompson and Mary Steenburgen in the supporting cast, though we're not sure who they're playing. For those who don't know, Redford is playing Bill Bryson, an aging travel writer an Iowa native who has been living in England for 20 years, as he aims to reconnect with America by hiking the 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail. But his connection with the homeland isn't smooth as he »

Drew Barrymore really is a great actress! The blonde beauty covers the June issue of Redbook magazine (via E!) where she opens up about her first pregnancy with daughter Olive. "The first time I was really nervous the whole time. I definitely chose my battles. I don't like to bother people," she reveals. "If it was something important or I was really worried, of course, I would call the doctor. But I was not that patient. I would just panic quietly inside." The mother-of-two also opens up about her career and accepting her body. "I would love to have long, thin arms. I really would but I don't.

This summer, we're going to be taking a look at the summer movie season from a number of different angles. Kristopher Tapley put up a great piece yesterday about his favorite summer movie summer, back in 1989, and you can expect three more of those. We also just posted a gallery of people we think have a chance at being breakout stars by the time September rolls around. But each month, we're also going to be taking a look at people who are at a crossroads, people who are having defining moments, people who are either on the wane or on the rise, and we're going to spotlight them. We're going to look at the stakes for them this summer, and how this could change things for them.

Sheryl Sandberg's self-help book has been snapped up by a film studio. As with other similar book-to-movie transitions, we expect a star turn from Katherine Heigl and lots of people falling down stairs. Let's hope we're wrong
Are you a woman? Do you worry that your lack of corporate assertiveness is letting down your gender? Would you like a set of clear, comprehensively thought-out guidelines from an inspirational authority? Then read Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg.
But what if you want all of this, but you promised yourself that you'd only accept career advice if you could also watch Katherine Heigl (or someone like Katherine Heigl) tuck her skirt into her knickers and fall down some stairs in front of a boy she likes? Good news! Sony Pictures has bought the movie rights to Lean In.

Having been in Hollywood for over two decades, Jennifer Connelly knows first-hand well how far celebs are willing to go to remain flawless in the public eye. "The thing that really matters to me is well-being and happiness," the He's Just Not That Into You actress shares in the February 2014 issue of Allure magazine. "Maybe it comes from knowing people who have tortured themselves trying to meet these strangely narrow and rigorous definition of what our culture thinks is beautiful." Being comfortable in your own skin is certainly important but she says finding actors you can be relaxed around is also an essential in her line of work. A prime example? Costar Russell Crowe. The duo famously paired up »

I didn’t know anything. I didn’t know you had to throw food out when it rotted in the fridge. I was convinced someone was going to crawl through my window. I would go to the Laundromat and sit there reading Anne Sexton, »
