Elsa Hosk Previews the 'Swim Special,' HBO Releases New 'Game of Thrones' Trailer, and Much, Much More

Here's all the day's dirt:

• The other day on Instagram, Victoria's Secret model Elsa Hosk previewed Wednesday night's televised "Swim Special" with a photo that hints at just how skimpy, sexy and sandy the show will be (above). In addition, Hosk's photo also hints that maybe she doesn't know how an Adirondack chair is supposed to work.

• Speaking of Elsa, we once interviewed the Swedish supermodel right after last year's "Victoria's Secret Swim Special" aired on CBS. Watch the video below to get a sense of what this year's show will look like, and also to see Elsa modeling a bikini in a much more comfortable setting:

• Almost eight years after "Matrix" filmmaker Lana (née Larry) Wachowski came out as transgender, her sister and filmmaking partner Lilly (née Andy) has also come out as transgender. That said, we applaud Lilly for her bravery, and also for the smart (albeit unintentional) way this will further distance her from those crappy "Matrix" sequels.

• HBO has released the first full-length trailer for their sixth season of "Game of Thrones" (below), which pretty much confirms that one specific character — who died at the end of the last season — is actually dead. (Our apologies to anyone who doesn't watch the show; that revelation is actually much more shocking than it sounds.)

• The contestants for this year's season of "Dancing With the Stars" were announced on Tuesday morning, but E! News hinted that nobody was really familiar with anybody but Geraldo Rivera (FOX News) and Jodie Sweetin ("Fuller House"). So either E!'s poll subjects were out-of-touch, or ABC is getting too loose with their definition of the word "star."

• MTV has announced the nominees for the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, which, like past years, will honor the best achievements in fighting, kissing and villainy. But unlike past years, MTV is no longer honoring the Best Shirtless Performance, which means that Robert De Niro went topless in "Dirty Grandpa" for nothing!

• Saban Films has released the first trailer for Nicholas Cage's new movie "The Trust," which stars Cage and "Hobbit" actor Elijah Wood as crooked cops on the hunt for a huge payday (below). And we have to admit, it's nice to finally see Nicholas Cage in a film where he's not trying to save the world through the power of yelling, or even diving angrily in 3-D.

• And finally, after an incident in which a Spanish magazine Photoshopped her picture, "Girls" creator Lena Dunham has announced that she's "done with allowing images that retouch and reconfigure my face and body." (We, on the other hand, will continue to allow any and all attempts at Photoshopping our personal pictures, starting with the terrible driver's licence photo we've been stuck with for two years.)
