Thank the stars for Philip Humber. If the baseball season in Chicago truly is going to be as coma-inducing as the prognosticators say it might be, we'll need to live off the White Sox pitcher's perfect game for a while.

Now two of summer's biggest movies, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and "Jupiter Ascending," plop the city back on giant screens, this time with even bigger stars (Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum/Mila Kunis, respectively). Yes, there also are "Spider-Man" and "X-Men" sequels on the way, plus "Guardians of the Galaxy," Angelina Jolie being evil in "Maleficent" and more Shailene Woodley in "The Fault in Our Stars.
