First, a question: Who’s Twice as Hot as Scarlett Johansson? Answer: Scarlett Johansson and her twin brother Hunter. I wish I’d known Ms. Johansson had a twin brother on National Siblings Day. But none of you mooks ever told me, so now I have no real excuse for posting these photos. Do we even need an excuse? I suppose we could pad this out with some of the best reviews…

Gillian Flynn Talks Gone Girl Adaptation on Reddit

Read More

One of the coolest things David Fincher did on Gone Girl was keep Gillian Flynn on as screenwriter. Probably the powers that be wanted a dude. I don’t know, just a guess.  Here is what the talented Ms. Flynn had to say about the adaptation process: “I read tons of screenplays and watched a lot of movies.
