  2. Jem and the Holograms Producer Says Audiences Will Be “Pleasantly Surprised” by the Movie After Trailer Uproar

    Basically the direct opposite of how we felt about the trailer.

    We, along with pretty much the entire Internet, found the Jem and the Holograms trailer truly outrageous—and not in a good way. The film's star, Stefanie Scott, already came to the defense of the trailer, and now producer Jason Blum has weighed in, asking us to reserve judgment until we see the final product.

  4. JK Rowling Gets an Eye-Full of Grown up Neville Longbottom, Matthew Lewis Proceeds to Apologize for His Abs & Junk

    And then Lucius Malfoy made a butt joke.

    While Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling didn't create the films, she was heavily involved in the process and therefore became close with the cast. When Matthew Lewis tweeted a link to a magazine he's being featured in, Rowling was in for a bit of a shock. Warning: serious abs ahead.

  6. Seriously, Hollywood? Maggie Gyllenhaal Told “37 Is Too Old” to Play Love Interest of a 55-Year-Old Man

    You're too old to do this for a movie, but when it comes to every other Hollywood romance...

    Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Knight) was recently turned down for a role in a film because she was told she was too old to play the lover of a 55 year old man. At 37, well... yeah, it doesn't make a damn lick of sense.

  8. The On-Screen Response and Reaction to Televised Rape and Sexual Assault Needs to Change

    So you may have heard that The Mary Sue will no longer be covering one of HBO's biggest shows because of the inclusion of yet another unnecessary and exploitative rape scene. There have been many reactions to this scene, including discussions of censorship, the right to adapt and revise literature, marketing vs. editorial coverage, and the difference between addressing and depicting rape on-screen.

  12. 5 Ways That L.A.’s DomCon Is Just Like Every Comic Con You’ve Ever Been To

    This could be considered NSFW. You know, if you work somewhere BORING.

    You've heard before that there's a connection between the geek community and the kink community, and I've spoken about as much at comic cons before. Recently, I had the chance to go to my first DomCon - a professional and lifestyle domination convention in Los Angeles - in support of my digital series, Incredible Girl, and while I'd never been to DomCon before, it felt really familiar. After all, geeks go to cons all the time, right?

  14. Cate Blanchett: People Who Think Homophobia, Other Discrimination Are Over Are “Very Foolish”

    Some people in America lately seem to be convinced that we've entered some kind of future utopia where we've moved past racism, sexism, homophobia, and all other kinds of discrimination, and only the people who wish to have meaningful conversations about those subjects even notice such petty differences between people—despite the reality of daily discrimination. And Cate Blanchett has had it.

    It happened to the dinosaurs - and there's a good chance it might happen to us. Well, not US-us, because anyone reading this might be long dead by the time that sort of thing happens. But STILL.
