Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Lucy’ beats ‘Hercules’ to Box Office #1

Girl Power!
First-time mom-to-be Scarlett Johansson came up on top this weekend when movies with strong female characters  leads had a big opening at theaters nationwide. 
Her SciFi movie, Lucyabout a courier who accidentally gets exposed to a serum that unlocks all the potential of the human brain came in #1 at the box office. 
It beat out Dwayne Johnson‘s, Hercules  and from Forbes:

This is a huge win for Scarlett Johansson. Coming off her Black Widow roles in the Marvel universe and her acclaimed art house triumph in Under the Skin, this should be her first $100m domestic hit outside of the Marvel universe while trouncing her biggest non-Marvel opening (He’s Just Not That Into You, an ensemble film, with a $27m debut and $93m final gross). In the still somewhat small category of female-centric action films, this debut falls behind the Hunger Games films, the $54m debut of Divergent, the $50m debuts of Wanted and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and the $47m debut of the first Tomb Raider film. It’s ahead of the $35m debut of Salt. As you can see, there is a lot of Angelina Jolie in that list, which means Johansson’s Lucy filled a very specific hole in the marketplace. 

The film’s marketing highlights a wholly different movie, selling a sci-fi heavy character drama about a young woman unwillingly given a drug that basically unlocks her brain and transforms her into a higher form of human as a “Watch Scarlett Johansson use super powers to kick righteous butt!” action picture.  What action the film contains is mostly revealed in the trailer, so the fact that the film received a C+ from Cinemascore is actually surprising to me. Considering how different the movie is from the marketing, I was half-expecting an F. Universal’s campaign for Lucy, full of lies as it may be, is an undisputed triumph.

Well there are a lot of lies in the movie like scientists have already disputed the fact that the human brain uses way more than 10% of its capacity. But what truth was omitted was the fact that the real “Lucy” – the first human, for which the movie is named, was found in Ethiopia in Africa, ironically by a man with a similar last name as Scarlett, Donald Johanson and his partner.

Oh well. Johansson and her fiance Romain Dauriac are expecting their first child together.

Avengers production director confirms Scarlett Johansson’s pregnancy, says they’ll work around her bump

So it seems like the President of Production for  Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has unknowingly let the pregnancy cat of the bag on Scarlett Johansson‘s pregnancy.
Although rumors an reports have circulated for close to a month or longer now that the A-Lister is preggers with her first child for fiance Roman Dauriac, neither have officially confirmed the baby news.
However, during an interview about  filming of Avengers:Winter Soldier Adventures: Age of Ultron, the Daily Mirror reports, Feige said that his first reaction of learning of the pregnancy was that he “was very happy for her and very excited for her,” his second reaction was, “we’ve got to move some pieces on the chess board around schedule-wise.”
That has meant that the Lost In Translation actress will need to wear a special high-tech suit with a green band around her waist to edit out her growing baby bump. Much of the movie magic will be done in post-production.
And director Joss Whedon said he still expected her to do her fight scenes. 
Whoa! Recall, last month we reported that during the filming of Divergent  actress Kate Winslet did her own stunts right into her third trimester. It’s a different ball game. 
But considering all the negative press Indian movie producers and American ones who cut actresses like Hilary Duff from projects after they became pregnant, it’s a toss up.

Marvel Stars Reflect On Founder and Creator Stan Lee’s Passing

Every parent to a fan of superhero comics, television series and movies should know a child’s favorite character and probably have a few of their own from childhood and today, the comic universe lost a pioneer and father figure in Marvel creator Stan Lee who died today at the age of 95.

Today, several of the celebrity women whose pregnancies we’ve covered in this blog left words of salute to the great Stan Lee who is recently famous for making obscure cameos in Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and films.

I caught the latest when he played a fellow gambler in The Black Panther release. Here is a quick rundown, excerpted from E! News roundup, of what our Bellytich Bumpwatch alums had to say about Lee’s passing and what he meant to them as actors.

Halle Berry– “RIP, Stan Lee. Thank you for sharing your incredible vision with us. We are eternally grateful to you and would not be the same without it,” tweeted Berry, who played Storm in three X-Men movies. “I am so honored to have played a part in your world and will forever look back on the opportunity

Scarlett Johansson

“The galaxy just gained another Dog Star,” the actress, who plays Black Widow in multiple films, told E! News in a statement. “Thankful everyday to be a small part of Stan’s universe. He was a legendary visionary and a true artist.”

Zoe Saldana

“Today we lost one of the greats. Stan Lee, you were an inspiration and superhero to us all,” the actress, who played Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for contributing so much- and giving us all something to aspire to!”

Evangeline Lily

Stan…more than a master of stories, you always seemed like a master of living,” the star of Ant-Man and the Wasp wrote on Instagram. “I will look to you for inspiration for the rest of my life. You live on. xoxo Your Wasp.”

Jessica Alba

Taking a moment to thank the great Stan Lee for his kindness,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “It was a huge honor to be part of your universe. The experience I had on The Fantastic Four playing Sue Storm/Invisible Woman was so meaningful as a young actress and made a huge impact on me. We will miss you, Stan Lee.”

Yellow, Gold and Celestial Beings at Met Ball 2018 Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

So the annual fundraising gala to mark the opening of the new Spring exhibit at The Metropolitan Gallery of Art in New York City went down last night.

As with this event every years, guests are asked to come dressed according to the theme of the new exhibit: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination. This year’s official hosts were Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Amal Clooney (above in Richard Quinn) and Donatella Versace (who dressed a lot of the attendees this year)

With a theme like that not only do you expect some backlash at what could be expected as a parade of sacrilegiousness, but you sorely expect some interpretations of Angels, the Virgin Mary, the Pope and Cardinals! They all were there last night too.

We just cover the moms and other celeb women we have frequently covered starting with two moms-to-be:  Homeland star Claire Danes who is expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy and rapper and reality TV star Cardi B who is expecting her first child with her fiance rapper Offset.

Danes wore a custom floor-length empire waist Marni precious duchesse  red, magenta and caramel color block gown paired with Marni Monile handbag  and multicolour platform sandals.

Cardi looked regal in a custom golden bejeweled white Moschino gown. She was accompanied to the event by designer Jeremy Scott though her fiancé was there with the other two members of his group, Migos.

Of our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, we noticed a few trends within the theme.

Gold was one. Kerry Washington in a gorgeous floor-length Ralph Lauren dress with her afro serving as a halo! Evan Rachel Wood, Kim Kardashian-West in Versace and Irina Shayk.

We saw structure, ornateness and royal crimson in Solange‘s Iris Van Harper ensemble, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez‘s spectacular Balmain modern take on Joan of Arc and Scarlett Johanssson

Yellow was a prevalent theme and color and everyone wearing it last night looked stunning including Lily Aldridge in Ralph Lauren, Huma Abedin and Gabrielle Union in Prabal Gurung dress, Tasaki jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

Anne Hathaway went with volume in her  Valentino gown which she paired did James Banks earrings, a The Code bracelet and Jimmy Choo heels.

Meanwhile, Gisele Bundchen did old Hollywood glam but in an environmentally friendly way by working with Versacd to repurpose an old dress.

“Thank you @versace for working so hard to make me an eco dress. The fabric and lining used are both 100% organic silk ecologically dyed, the threads are 100% organic cotton and everything is certificated as GOTS: Global Organic Textile Standard,” she captioned a photo of herself in the dress before heading out to the ball.

Kylie Jenner made her first official official red carpet appearance in a black velvet Alexander Wang gown with Chopard jewelry with her beau rapper Travis Scott since the two welcomed their first child together, daughter Storming

Uma Thurman was accompanied to the event by Maya Hawke, her daughter with Ex Ethan Hawke and  donned a white Gabriela Hearst dress, Giampiero Bodino jewelry, and Manolo Blahnik heels

Most people played it safe but understandingly so because they probably didn’t want to cross the line and have to dodge lightning bolts! ha!
