- Apparantly there was a new Harry Potter novel released recently? I hate when these stories go under the radar and no one reports them. EW fixes that with a big cover story, including a review by Eragon author Christopher Paolini.
- Who's the most powerful female in Hollywood? Julia Roberts? Sherry Lansing? Nope. It's Dakota Fanning!
- EW picks the Top 10 Summer Vacation Movies.
- Reviews: EW gives a C to The Island, an A to Hustle and Flow, a B+ to The Bad News Bears, and a B to Last Days.
