A lot of people will tell you that summer is the time to head outside and enjoy Mother Nature. We say, nonsense! Why would you want to mess with the heat and all those ants when you could be sitting in an air-conditioned IMAX theater on July 3, when The Amazing Spider-Manopens? Speaking of Spidey, Marvel’s web-slinging superhero swings his way to the top of our annual Summer Must List issue — your essential guide to all of the best movies, TV, music, and books of the season.
The Amazing Spider-Man is more focused on Peter Parker as an existential teen loner, grappling with the mystery of what happened to his dead father. Another difference is a new love interest for our wall-crawler. Mary Jane Watson is out, Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy is in. For those unfamiliar with the Spidey comics, Gwen is Peter’s first true love. Garfield and Stone had never met before she auditioned for the part. But the actress says she and her costar had immediate chemistry — which quickly sparked into an offscreen romance. “A lot of our scenes are scripted,” says Stone. “But there are moments that aren’t, where we were able to find whatever it was we were looking for playing two kids who were falling in love for the first time.”As for the rest of Your Summer Must List, EW’s got your entertainment guide all plotted out. We take a look at the Mark Wahlberg comedy Ted, Chris Nolan’s latest Batman installment The Dark Knight Rises, Aaron Sorkin’s hugely anticipated TV series Newsroom, the return of Breaking Bad, the all-star country music teaming of Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, the best beach reads, the most awesome Apps, and our essential list of “99 Ways to Spend 99 Days” — a day-by-day breakdown of how to get the most out of the next three-plus months.

Glee‘s Lea Michele wore a low cut revealing dress for her appearance on Late Show with David Letterman, Tuesday night in NYC. When Letterman mentioned her tattoos, she told him “You’re like my dad.”

And Holly says: “It’s nerve-wracking to combat such a controversial issue as well; the outpouring of negativity for Casey Anthony is unlike anything we’ve seen in the media in years.”
She joins Rob Lowe, who will play prosecutor Jeff Ashton in the Lifetime movie, tentatively titled, Prosecuting Casey Anthony, based on Ashton’s memoir.
In the new horror/thriller, a couple becomes haunted by a supernatural presence that is unleashed during a college experiment. After realizing that there is no place to run from the apparition, the couple turns to a supernatural expert to hopefully save them in time.
Miley Cyrus was spotted in Los Angeles, CA this afternoon, The 19-year-old starlet was holding a piggy bank with the words “Spa Fund” inscribed on it as she left the pad sporting a long floral halter dress with her hair in a tight bun.
Miley Cyrus said to “The Converstation’s” Amanda de Cadenet, “The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad. Because sex is actually really beautiful. It’s the only way we create, and it’s the only way the world keeps going.”
