As promised, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are remaining united in spirit for the kids. The whole family is together at their home in the Bahamas. It would seem that the parents of three probably had planned this getaway all along, wanting to find a private spot to be with their daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel while news of their divorce continued to make headlines.

One less thing for Sean “Diddy” Combs to think about over the holiday weekend: the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has decided not to press charges against him in connection with his arrest last month for allegedly attacking a UCLA football coach with a kettlebell. His son Justin plays for the Bruins. So the D.A. is opting to pass, but the L.A. City Attorney’s Office can now decide whether to file misdemeanor charges against him.

ROBERT DOWNEY JR. will star in a live-action “Pinocchio” movie. He’ll play Geppetto, the wood-carver who creates Pinocchio. It’ll be directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who did “Boogie Nights”, “Magnolia”, and “There Will Be Blood”.

“Terminator: Genisys” is up against “Magic Mike XXL” this weekend. The second “Magic Mike” movie is about a road trip to a strippers’ convention . . . and the fifth “Terminator” resets the timeline to have Arnold protecting Sarah Connor ever since she was a little girl.
