Altho the Supreme Court of the United States stole Shannon’s thunder a little bit by legalizing same-sex marriage here in the US, I’d like to take the time NOW to ask you to join me in celebrating her special day today. Our dear Shannon is on holiday this weekend for her Dirty 30 Birthday so, I’m hoping, she won’t be anywhere near a computer for a while to be distracted by the blog. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t send her all of the Birthday Lurve we can muster today. Shannon’s Facebook profile is a treasure trove of amazing photos of our Shannon, some of which I have collected in this gallery. I know you guys love her as much as I do so let’s wish her the Happiest Birthday ever with the hope of many, many more to come. I am also hoping our girl stays out of trouble while she’s on holiday this weekend … well, maybe she can get into a little trouble ;)

Yesterday I teased that I was about to do something really cool and today I am happy to share all the deets with all of you. As you may have noticed, I have fallen desperately in love with seeing movies in 4DX where the theatrical experience of seeing a movie is heightened by wind, water, motion, light and other effects choreographed with the film so that the viewer feels like they are in the movie. In all of my raving on the blog and in social media, the folks at 4DX caught wind of my fandom and reached out to me. It turns out that longtime PITNB reader Catherine is one of the 4DX editors responsible for adding the 4DX effects to the movies that get released and she reached out to me with an invitation to visit the 4DX studios in Hollywood to learn a bit more about what they do. As you can imagine, I jumped at the chance to do so. Yesterday was my day to visit and I had the best time ever. More »
Back in April we got our first look at the new Scream TV series coming to MTV this year and earlier this month, we got our first look at the new mask that will be worn by the new Ghostface killer. Today we get to see the first 8 minutes of this new series based on the Scream horror movie franchise. After hearing about this series and then watching the first trailer, I have to admit that I wasn’t really all that excited by this new show. I must admit that I am charmed by this look at how the series will start when it premieres on MTV. It deff has that Scream feel … and we get to see the first murders of the series … AND we get to see the Ghostface killer rocking the new mask. I dunno. I may end up watching this series after all. Check out the first 8 minutes of Scream: The TV Series and see what you think.
Last month, CBS released the first trailer for their upcoming Supergirl TV series which will debut on the network this fall. Today we get to see a second, shorter international trailer for the series that is far superior to the first trailer, IMHO. This second trailer is shorter and more concise than the first trailer and as you can hear in the embed above, it features much more exciting and non-sappy romcom music. Many people were turned off by the first trailer’s use of schmaltzy music which they felt made Supergirl seem weak or not serious. The music featured in this second trailer is very exciting and much better suited to a superhero series. Have a look above and see what you think. I think you’re really gonna love what you see here.

In the wake of rumors that the new Green Lantern movie might focus on both Hal Jordon and Jon Stewart (both DC Comics characters that have been the Green Lantern), we learn today that model/actor Tyrese Gibson has been suggesting and hinting hardcore that he might be playing the role of Green Lantern / Jon Stewart in a new film (I guess those Denzel Washington rumors are dunzo). Tyrese posted a photo on his official Instagram profile that caught people’s attention and when he was asked about his Green Lantern hints, his coy answers seem to fuel the rumor flames that he will don the green costume as the next Green Lantern on the big screen. Click below to see his photo, read his teasing comments and speculate along with me, won’t you? More »
The cast of Magic Mike XXL made their way to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA last night for the LA premiere of their film and as you can see in the gallery presented here, everyone got all dolled up for the occasions.

We’ll all get back to the grind when Magic Mike XXL opens in theaters nationwide on July 1.

Just a short time ago, the US Supreme Court ruled that marriage equality is a RIGHT for all US citizens and with one monumental decision legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 US States. The full text of today’s 5-4 decision has been made available to us and while I fully understand that reading court rulings isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, I suspect that this ruling might be of interest to a great many of you. The full text of today’s ruling in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges is embedded below for you to read, download, print out, frame, wallpaper your walls with, etc. Even if you aren’t familiar with legal jargon, I do urge you all to read as much of this ruling as possible to fully understand what the majority of Supreme Court justices have ruled in this country. Today is a day that will go down in History. You might want to read the words that have changed the United States of America for the better, forever. More »

The US Supreme Court has handed down its decision on same-sex marriage, which determines the legality of marriage equality in this country, and I am overjoyed to announce that the court has ruled in a 5-4 decision that SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS NOW LEGAL IN ALL 50 US STATES! The day that so many people dreamed of has finally come. After a few years of lower courts ruling that this or that state has legalized same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court — the highest court in the land — has ruled that marriage equality is a right for all US citizens … and that gays and lesbians can be married in all 50 US states. “The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between tow people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State,” the majority opinion states. I … was hopeful that this would be the ruling but … it’s really too much for me to process right now that this day has finally come.
