Angelina Jolie flew in to San Diego to attend this year’s  Comic Con convention to promote her movie, “Salt.” Angelina was joined by her “Salt” co-star Liev Schreiber, producer Dino di Bonaventure, and director Phillip Noyce. “Salt” is a Russian spy thriller that is now out in theaters. Previously, Jolie shared how excited she was to get back to work with an Action movie.

Angelina Jolie stated, “You can get away with so much in fantasy like bending a bullet, for example. So this one was a nice challenge because we had to work so much harder to convince the audience that all of these things are possible. I think these stunts in this movie are better than in other action movies that I’ve done.” 

The giant annual convention kicked off Thursday, July 22, 2010 to begin the 4-day celebration of pop culture. Organizers are expecting 126,000 fans to attend. The event started off as a gathering of comic book fans, but it has grown into an opportunity for Hollywood to attract the attention of young male audiences.

LeBron James ended months of speculation and drama on Thursday, July 8, 2010, during a nationally-televised special titled, “The Decision,” broadcasted on ESPN. The decision by LeBron to join two other superstars in Miami, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, brought cheers to Miami fans and made Pat Riley look like a wizard for being able to conjure up a formula for a possible new dynasty. Likewise, fans in Cleveland and the State of Ohio were heartbroken to see the loss of their homegrown hero.

Now the sporting world can end speculation, and focus on the possibilities of the upcoming NBA season. Although it appears the trio may have a good chance to bring a title to South Beach next year, many analysts are not going to jump on the bandwagon so quickly. Most are waiting to see how each superstar adjusts to their new role and waiting to see who Pat Riley is able to put around the All-Stars.

On LeBron James’s Twitter account, he invited people to post their reaction to his decision and stated that he will post his reactions at #lebrondecision during the evening. LeBron James’s good friend, Chris Paul, tweeted on his Twitter account in response, “Glad bron finally got that off his chest…NO ONE can possibly imagine how tough that decision was for him…wish him all the best!!!” As of the time of this posting, LeBron already had 361,199 followers on his Twitter account.

This type of activity on the Internet is part of a growing trend among celebrities, which is to connect to their fans through the micro-blogging site, Twitter. Twitter allows celebs to be instantly connected and spontaneous. You can follow the Twitter accounts and other social networking sites of your favorite celebrities on FanAccess.com, a celebrity portal scheduled to be officially launched on August 1, 2010.

It seems the whole world is tuned in to the LeBron James saga, and speculating whether or not he will stay in Cleveland or land in another NBA city this Summer. Now, his fans and the media can follow his moves on LeBron’s new, official Twitter page, @KingJames. LeBron James signed up for the Twitter account on Tuesday, July 6, 2010. As of Tuesday at noon, over 100,000 followers connected with the page. No one knows if LeBron James will use his Twitter account to give any hints on his intentions, but many will continue to visit the Twitter page just in case he does. LeBron’s first Tweet to the world read, “Hello World, the Real King James is in the Building “Finally”. My Brother @oneandonlycp3 gas’d me up to jump on board so I’m here. Haaaa.”

Apparently, LeBron’s good friend Chris Paul, who has a Twitter account @oneandonlycp3, convinced him to join the Twitter bandwagon. Chris Paul posted a hint early Tuesday, “BREAKING NEWS: Gotta big surprise for evrybody on twitter 2day…lemme kno when yall ready and want to kno the news…” An hour later, Chris posted, “Couldn’t convince him to tell me which team he’s goin to but convinced him to join twitter lol…my brother from another mother @KINGJAMES.”
