America's biggest Comic-Con is getting underway. The four-day extravaganza is expected to bring nearly 130-thousand people, 166-million dollars in revenue and just over two-and-a-half million in tax revenue into San Diego this year. The annual event has also turned into a tremendous opportunity for Hollywood to promote current and upcoming films and TV series, with exclusive footage and appearances by big-name actors. Everything gets started tonight with a special sneak preview, while the main event gets underway Thursday morning.

The "Fight Club" author is making good on a promise he made last year to follow up on his 1996 novel. Sharing a few details ahead of his appearance at the San Diego Comic Con…"USA Today" says the "Fight Club" sequel will unfold as a ten-issue comic book series picking up ten years after the ending of the original book while also exploring Tyler Durden's past.

A new picture of Jay Z and Beyonce walking their daughter Blue Ivy seems to be silencing rumors that the music power couple are on the brink of breaking up. Sources say JAY Z and BEYONCÉ are going to divorce after their On the Run tour ends later this summer. One source says, quote, "They are splitting up everything (properties, money, children) right now, but will be keeping up appearances until the announcement. They are separating this year, with the divorce to follow in about six months. It will be very clean and very fast.

"Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes is opening the doors of her Los Angeles home to President Barack Obama today. Rhimes is set to host a fundraising event for the Democratic National Convention. "Scandal" star Kerry Washington is on board as a member of the host committee for the event. The night will include a musical performance, followed by remarks from the President who will also sit down for dinner with about 30 guests. It's one of several fundraisers the President is scheduled to attend during his visit to California this week. The President did back out of an appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The White House said doing a comedy show in the midst of the serious topics on the international scene posed a challenge for the President.

Sarah Palin has at least one thing in common with Sammy Hagar -- she can't drive 55 either. And she certainly can't do 45. The former Alaska governor was caught speeding last week in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. Police clocked her going 63-miles-per-hour, when the posted speed limit was 45. She accepted the citation, and will reportedly pay the 154-dollar ticket. But she tells TMZ she's not entirely at fault. Saying she "wasn't speeding" but "was qualifying," Palin explains that she couldn't help but put the pedal to the metal because Hagar's classic "I Can't Drive 55" was on the radio at the time.

One topless photo is all it takes to squash the rumors of Miley Cyrus' supposed death. The pop star became the victim of a Facebook death hoax over the weekend, sending some fans into a panic when her social media pages appeared inactive for three days. She finally resurfaced late Monday night with a series of bizarre shots on Instagram. One showed the singer from the back completely topless and holding up two peace signs. It was reported by "Hollywood Life" that Miley was aware of the rumors of her death spreading across the Internet and found it amusing that people were believing them to be true. The Facebook link that started the rumors seemed to be the work of scammers and sent users who clicked on it to a page of surveys.

Justin Bieber's neighbors appear to be fed up with his partying. TMZ says Beverly Hills police are talking to the residents who live in the pop star's condo building about potentially placing him under a citizen's arrest. Police are informing neighbors of the options available to them, after a total of six noise complaints were called in over the weekend. Sources from the building describe Justin's rooftop party on Saturday as a scene from a nightclub. Apparently he invited over 75 guests, and photos of the aftermath show the area littered with red plastic cups and bottles. Some say the building smelled of marijuana afterward. Bieber is currently on two years probation for misdemeanor vandalism.

This can't be a good sign: The Bel Air mansion of ROBIN THICKE and PAULA PATTON is on the market.

Ring the bell for another season of "Downton Abbey." Season Five of the hit British drama is set to hit airwaves stateside, starting January 4th, 2015. The show is up for more Emmys this year, including a nomination in the Outstanding Drama Series category.

and finally...listen to The Rocket and Teresa Show every morning for your chance to win a trip to NY to see Into The Storm!

Jason Biggs is now apologizing for an ill-timed joke about Thursday's Malaysian Airlines disaster. The "American Pie" actor originally fired back at critics with a series of profanity-filled tweets but has since deleted those and his initial offending tweet about the tragedy. In a four-part apology on Twitter, Biggs said he was sending positive thoughts to the victims and their families sharing that he now realizes that his comments may have come off as "insensitive" and "ill-timed." Biggs, who stars in the critically-acclaimed Netflix hit "Orange Is The New Black," initially tweeted a joke that asked, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?"

The tweet came just an hour after it was reported that Malaysian Airline Flight 17 may have been shot down by a missile over the Eastern Ukraine. All 295 people on board the flight are believed to be dead.

The pop princess and her boyfriend David Lucado were photographed all smiles at the restaurant in Thousand Oaks, California, clutching doggie bags on their way out. But apparently they'd left behind a check for about 30-dollars at their table inside. Britney's rep tells TMZ there's a simple explanation behind the accidental dine-and-dash. Britney had supposedly asked one of her security guards to take care of the bill for her, but it was never handled.

He says this the Thor of the Marvel Universe. The new Thor storyline launches in October.
