What you’ll find in The Ticket on your newstands, app and online tomorrow:

Scarlett Johansson: on life in a catsuit in Marvel Avengers Assemble. Plus three not-so-super heroines.

Festivals: The Ticket’s guide to the summer’s festivals and big gigs in fields, tents, parks, posh estates and sports stadiums (and greyhound stadiums) around the country.

Hollywood turns 100: ahead of the centenary of Universal, Liam Burke takes a tour to assess the current state of play.

Plus reviews of new album releases (including Marina & the Diamonds, Brendan Benson, Santigold, Polica, Aleksandra Kurzak, Lower Dens, Paul Brady, John Daly, De La Soul’s Plug1 & Plug2, Justin Townes Earle, Tim Garland/Gwilym Simcock/Asaf Sirkis), movies (Marvel Avengers Assemble, African Cats, Albert Nobbs, Being Elmo, Damsels in Distress, The Monk), games, apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. It’s been quite a week, darlings.
