ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Sorry James Cameron, moviegoers aren’t getting tired of The Avengers just yet. The first full day of box office ticket sales are in for Infinity War and the latest Marvel title is shattering records.

Infinity War finished its domestic opening day with $106 million (including $39 million from late Thursday screenings) becoming the second largest domestic first day in history — right in between leader Star Wars: The Force Awakens and third-place finisher Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Disney currently estimates the superhero mashup’s opening weekend to come in between the $225-$240 million range to top The Last Jedi‘s $220 million opening weekend to become the second-biggest opening weekend of all time (Force Awakens will remain at No. 1 with $248M).

Obviously, this also means Infinity War has the biggest opening for a Marvel movie ever.

Including international ticket sales, Infinity War is at $178.5 million through Friday with record-breaking openings in many territories.

For Disney, this is huge. With these numbers, Infinity War has pushed the studio over the $1 billion cumulative ticket sales mark this year in record time (topping the previous industry record of 128 days in 2016, which was also set by Disney).

Our gallery has finally been updated with over 400 high-resolution photos of Scarlett from the Avengers: Infinity War global press conference and premiere, which were both held in Hollywood, Los Angeles. My apologies for the delay in adding them–as you may have noticed, our main site was offline for several days, which meant updates have been put back quite a bit. She looks beautiful, and I just love the new hair color–which I would assume is her her upcoming role in Jojo Rabbit. Many thanks to my friend Emily of Shailene Woodley Network for these photos. Enjoy!

NYLON – Nine years after joining forces to create their debut duet album Break Up, Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn are coming together once again. The duo has announced a new EP titled Apart, out June 1 via Capitol.

Though Johansson and Yorn haven’t collaborated for some time, the actress hasn’t been totally out of the music scene: In 2015, she formed a supergroup of sorts called The Singles, which also included Este Haim. And her work in music dates back even further than her album with Yorn; in 2008, Johansson she released a full album of Tom Waits covers titled Anywhere I Lay My Head.

To celebrate the news of their new album, Johansson and Yorn released its first single, “Bad Dreams.” Though the title alludes to nightmares, the single is instead three minutes of pure pop bliss.

“Pessimistic as it seems / sleep will never come that easy / we will always have bad dreams,” sing Johansson and Yorn over pulsing drums and a steady tambourine beat. Through the lyrics, Johansson and Yorn ponder things like getting older, falling out of love, and the inevitable, but still shitty, likelihood of losing your car keys.

VANITY FAIR – There was no way Saturday Night Live was going to close out its banner year without one more trip to the location that proved so easy to mock in 2017: Donald Trump’s White House. The opening sketch hung on the concept of Trump and his cohorts bidding a snarky farewell to the many political figures, like Sean Spicer, who didn’t last the year.

Melissa McCarthy wasn’t on hand to kick around Spicer one last time, but S.N.L. did get an A-list star (in addition to Alec Baldwin) to give the sketch some added holiday value. Reprising her appearance from back in March, Scarlett Johansson swung by to roll out her Ivanka Trump impression one last time this year.

The parade of impressions from the regular cast, however, easily highlighted the year’s M.V.P.s as Mikey Day’s Donald Jr. and Alex Moffat’s Eric Trump handily stole the show with their dumb and dumber routine.

Leslie Jones also made an appearance just outside the White House window as freshly fired (or was she?) Trump employee Omarosa Manigault. Jones repeated the impression just a few sketches later when she crashed “Weekend Update.”

But Omarosa wasn’t the only repeat appearance on the show. As the credits rolled and host Kevin Hart said his goodbyes alongside the rest of the cast on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center, Johansson and her newly-official partner, Colin Jost, could be seen grinning, holding hands, and skating off together.

We can assume that Johansson’s guest role was at least in part a show of support for Jost on his first episode back as head writer of S.N.L.

I’ve uploaded some gorgeous photos of Scarlett attending the American Museum Of Natural History’s 2017 Museum Gala on November 30. Seems she’s now letting her hair grow – would you believe it’s three years since she cut it? A huge thank you to my friend Emily of Marvelous Margot for sending these my way. Enjoy!
