Just a quick post to let you know that the trailer for He’s Just Not That Into You will premiere tonight on ET. It will also be available online later on this week.
As earlier mentioned, I am in the process of moving to another country for the summer. I am flying tomorrow but it should not take later than early next week for me to be hooked back online. Meanwhile, the forum will provide you with all the latest on Scarlett, as per usual.
Also check out the gallery for all the additions I’ve added in the past few days. Thanks to everyone who contributed!

Sandra of Portman Source informed me of a site that appears to be an international official site for The Other Boleyn Girl. Not much there yet, except for the international trailer that premiered online a week back. Nevertheless, be sure to bookmark TheOtherBoleynGirlMovie.net.
Roberto sent in a link to Hollywood.com, which confirms that Scarlett’s character in He’s Just Not That Into You is named Anna and the film will be released August 1, 2008.
For those who are interested in the “sexiest women” type of polls, Andre Poupada reported to us that Scarlett has been nominated for AskMen.com’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2008. You can vote for her here. Scroll through the galleries and rank each of the nominees on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the most desirable). Feel free to vote as many times as you like, the final results will be revealed on January 31, 2008. As you may remember, Scarlett ranked #2 in the 2007 vote.
Scarlett also ranked #8 on EmpireOnline.com’s “Sexiest Movie Star Ever”. Visitors of the site were earlier in the year asked to pick the sexiest movie star ever, with their choice of screen star being unrestricted by age, gender or silver screen era, and over 20,000 votes were reportedly cast. Here’s what they had to say about Scarlett:
#8 – Scarlett Johansson
The voice that sounds like she’s been awake all night and up to all sorts of things would be sexy enough. But match it with a pouting face and a body apparently designed to describe the term ‘va-va-voom’ and you have a killer package.
Sheer knickers in the opening moments of Lost in Translation.
Did You Know…?
She has a twin brother, who is her junior by three minutes
Last but not least, The Nanny Diaries is now out on R1 DVD so be sure to grab your copy! Captures will be up soon.
I’ve added 12 HQs of Scarlett filming He’s Just Not That Into You in Baltimore last weekend with Kevin Connolly. The film is expected to wrap this week. Read on for an article from Baltimore Sun:
Celebrity sightings continued this weekend as the cast of He’s Just Not That Into You worked and dined around town.
Filming, which started Friday in Little Italy, will tentatively continue through tomorrow. Based on a self-help humor book, the movie brought stars Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly and Kevin Connolly to Baltimore for the past few days.
In Mount Vernon, restaurants Thairish and the Helmand were temporarily redecorated Saturday with new lights, a new door and a new name: Red Seven.
A-list actresses Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly will be in town this weekend, shooting the final scenes for He’s Just Not That Into You to lend some geographic authenticity to the romantic comedy set in Baltimore.
Set to be released next summer, the movie is based on the popular self-help book by comedian Greg Behrendt and Sex and the City writer Liz Tuccillo. While the film’s plot has been kept under wraps, the book lists all the excuses a woman concocts for why a man she longs for doesn’t seem interested.
Ginnifer Goodwin of Big Love and Kevin Connolly of Entourage will also be filming scenes, which should start today and continue through Monday. But most of the ensemble cast, including Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore, won’t be on location because He’s Just Not That Into You was shot primarily in Los Angeles.
She’s a fierce talent who’s already won one Oscar for her supporting work, but take a look at Jennifer Connelly’s filmography and what jumps out is that most of it is, well, supporting: John Nash’s wife, the Hulk’s girlfriend, the love interest of male leads in Requiem for a Dream, Dark City, The Rocketeer and more.
“I’ve done so many movies where I’ve been a wife or a girlfriend and less where I’m playing just a friend,” Connelly admitted to MTV News. “That’s one of the things that was exciting about [being in] He’s Just Not That Into You.”
Based on the popular self-help book of the same name, He’s Just Not That Into You follows several stories, each of them told “in sort of chapters,” Connelly said, “chapters on this thematic idea” — basically how to tell when a man is interested in a relationship.
More proof that Baltimore is becoming a veritable Hollywood of the east…
New Line Cinema’s comedy He’s Just Not That Into You, starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson and Kris Kristofferson, is scheduled to shoot for four days in Baltimore next month.
Plans call for the film to shoot Nov. 16-19. No positive word yet on where, or which of the principals will actually be coming to Baltimore (which, according to imdb.com, is where the film is set), but here’s one sure way to find out:
As part of next weekend’s fund-raiser for the Maryland Film Festival, a role as an extra on the film is being auctioned off. (Information at the MFF website, md-filmfest.com).
