Box office report: Cars 3 races past Wonder Woman

The film follows their relationship as it chronicles Maud’s burgeoning career. 2 – $4.98 million
10 –   It Comes At Night   – $2.6 million

Show Full Article The movie, which is a Tom Cruise-starring reboot of the 1999 film of the same name, earned an estimated $13.9 million this weekend for a cumulative domestic box office haul of $56.5 million. The shark-infested survival horror film sees   This Is Us   star   Mandy Moore and   The Originals‘ Claire Holt play sisters who decide to go cage-diving with sharks, only to have an accident cause their cage to break off from the boat and sink to the bottom of the sea floor with both of them still in it. Even its predecessor,   Cars   ($60 million), and the poorly reviewed   Cars 2   ($66 million) earned more during their first weekends out (adjusted for inflation). But while the movie fared well with audiences (an A on CinemaScore) and received favorable   reviews, it didn’t perform as high as recent Pixar sequels   Toy Story 3 ($110 million) and Finding Dory ($135.1 million) did on their opening weekends. Outside the top 10 is Jurassic World director   Colin Trevorrow’s latest film,   The Book of Henry, which earned an estimated $1.4 million from 579 locations. Despite the raunchy comedy’s star power, the film opened with significantly less than other recent female-fronted comedies like Snatched ($19 million),   Bad Moms ($23.8 million), and   How to Be Single ($17.9 million). But while the movie continues to fare poorly in North America, the first in Universal’s Dark Universe series has already earned $239 million internationally, bringing the movie’s worldwide total to $296 million. Thankfully, he has Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) to train him and a new sponsor (Nathan Fillion’s Sterling) funding the entire process as he works hard to return to top form. 1   –   Cars 3   – $53.5 million
2 –   Wonder Woman   – $40.8 million
3   –   All Eyez On Me   – $27.1 million
4 –   The Mummy   – $13.9 million
5 – 47 Meters Down   – $11.5 million
6 –   Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales   – $8.5 million
7   –   Rough Night   – $8 million
8 –   Captain Underpants   – $7.4 million
9 –   Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Check out the June 16-18 box office figures below. Per ComScore, overall box office is up 2.7 percent   in the same frame from last year. The film stars   Avengers’   Scarlett Johansson, Office Christmas Party‘s Jillian Bell,   Mad Max Fury Road‘s Zoë Kravitz,   Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer, and   SNL‘s Kate McKinnon as a group of old college friends reuniting for a bachelorette party, only for things to take a dark turn. Sally Hawkins plays Maud, while Ethan Hawke plays her eventual husband Everett. 3 spot this weekend is   All Eyez On Me. After three weeks, the latest film in the DC Extended Universe (and the first one featuring a female superhero as the lead) has pulled in an estimated domestic box office total of $275 million so far as well as an international haul of $297 million for an impressive worldwide total of $571 million. The film sees Naomi Watts star as the single mother of two sons, Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) and Peter (Jacob Tremblay), the oldest of whom attempts to rescue the girl next door from her abusive stepfather. The film performed better in its third weekend than any of the three recent DCEU films did:   2013’s   Man of Steel   came in at $20.7 million after a 49.8 percent drop, 2016’s   Batman v. The film   — which received poor reviews from critics and audiences alike (B- on CinemaScore)   — sees Cruise’s   Nick Morton go up against Ahmanet, the mummy of an Egyptian princess who curses him. The only WB film   Wonder Woman is trailing behind is   The Dark Knight, which earned   $42.6 million in its third weekend after a 43.2 percent drop. The third installment in Pixar’s   Cars franchise saw the animated feature debut with an estimated   $53.5 million domestically and $21.3 million internationally. Cars 3 revved its engines and roared into first place at the box office this weekend. Elsewhere,   Maudie,   Aisling Walsh’s biopic of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, earned an estimated $49,842 from 24 locations. Rounding out the top five this weekend is newcomer   47 Meters Down with an estimated $11.5 million from 2,270 locations. Cars 3 sees the return of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) as the red race car contends with growing old after getting in an accident while racing against his new rival Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). In the No. The film   — which was criticized on Twitter by Jada Pinkett Smith for its inaccuracies   — did not receive many positive reviews (EW’s Leah Greenblatt gave it a B-), but audiences seemed to enjoy the movie’s rendition of the cultural icon and prolific rapper’s (played by Demetrius Shipp Jr.) life, giving it an A- on CinemaScore. The R-rated Tupac Shakur biopic earned an estimated $27.1 million from 2,471 locations. Also in the top 10 is   Rough Night, which comes in seventh with an estimated $8 million from 3,162 locations. Coming in fourth is The Mummy, which premiered in second place last weekend. Superman: Dawn of Justice   earned $23.4 million after 54.5 percent drop, and   Suicide Squad   made $20.9 million after 52.1 percent drop. In second place is   Wonder Woman with an estimated $40.8 million after seeing only a 30 percent drop in the domestic box office after last week.

Jay Z bails out incarcerated dads for Father’s Day

Most recently, Beyoncé celebrated the one-year anniversary of her Peabody Award-winning visual album Lemonade by starting the Formation Scholars scholarship program,   which is aimed at young women   studying creative arts, music, literature, or African-American studies at Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College. The Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee recently penned an op-ed for Time   in which he not only identified the for-profit bail bond industry and “its predatory lending scheme” as one of the major factors contributing to the United States being one of the most incarcerated countries in the world, but also pledged to give money to organizations that would help bail out men currently being held pending bail.  

Show Full Article This isn’t the first time the Knowles-Carter family has proved philanthropic. Jay Z   isn’t the only one having a very special Father’s Day this year. Thanks to the rapper, many fathers who are currently behind bars awaiting bail will now be going home. “Millions of people are separated from their families for months at a time — not because they are convicted of committing a crime, but because they are accused of committing a crime.”
He later referenced organizations like Southerners On New Ground and Color of Change that bailed out moms for Mother’s Day. “If you’re from neighborhoods like the Brooklyn one I grew up in, if you’re unable to afford a private attorney, then you can be disappeared into our jail system simply because you can’t afford bail,” he wrote. “As a father with a growing family, it’s the least I can do, but philanthropy is not a long fix, we have to get rid of these inhumane practices altogether. He spent three years on Rikers Island in solitary confinement and later died by suicide. Read Jay Z’s full   Time   piece here. We can’t fix our broken criminal justice system until we take on the exploitative bail industry.”
Jay Z noted that while this is one of the issues within the American judicial system that activists and filmmakers like Ava DuVernay have been calling attention to in their work, it’s something he became “obsessed” with after helping with a docuseries about Kalief Browder, a 22-year-old black man whose family could not afford to post bail when he was accused of stealing a backpack.

Mission: Impossible 6 director highlights female stars in new photo

Then, later in April, he announced the beginning of filming with another tweeted photo. The image, which he tweeted late Saturday night, sees (in order from left to right) Vanessa Kirby (The Crown), Angela Bassett (Black Panther), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible 5), and Michelle Monaghan (The Path)   standing together and gazing into the distance. Mission: Impossible 6 director Christopher McQuarrie has offered yet another tease to the upcoming movie on social media. Mission: Impossible 6 drops into theaters July 27, 2018. Show Full Article This time, it’s in the form of a photograph that highlights four of the actresses who’ll be starring in the film. Sian Brooke (Sherlock), whose role has been kept secret thus far, is missing, though. Kirby and Bassett may be new additions to the Tom Cruise-starring franchise, but Ferguson and Monaghan have appeared in previous   Mission: Impossible movies and will be reprising their roles as Isla Faust (a hypercompetent special agent equal to Cruise’s Ethan Hunt) and Julia Meade (Ethan’s wife whose death he faked), respectively.

In praise of Atticus Finch, film’s most enduring and endearing father figure

To Kill a Mockingbird is available for streaming on Amazon, iTunes, and Netflix. It’s somehow fitting that the greatest movie ever made about fatherhood is told through the eyes of a child. But there’s a scene toward the end of the film where it finally dawns on Scout how special this man she takes for granted is. Scout calls for her father to come outside, where he thanks the farmer. Of course, no child ever appreciates that sort of thing in the moment. Set in a dusty and inward-looking Alabama town during the Depression, the film tells the story of a widowed lawyer and father of two named Atticus Finch who’s assigned to defend a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. It’s hard to imagine a tidier tutorial in empathy and the importance of a human being’s sense of pride. It’s only in hindsight that we understand it. RELATED VIDEO:   5 High-Grossing Page-to-Screen Adaptations

At the beginning of the film, a poor farmer stops by the Finches’ modest home to drop off a sack of hickory nuts as payment for legal work Atticus has done. Peck was 45 when he made Mockingbird. It’s a period piece, to be sure. The black reverend whispers to Scout, “Miss Jean Louise, stand up…your father’s passing.” Whether you’re watching that moment on Father’s Day or any other day of the year, good luck not sobbing your eyes out. Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-winning novel, Robert Mulligan’s 1962 classic To Kill a Mockingbird was adapted by writer Horton Foote — a Texan who understood the South and knew its prejudices in the marrow of his bones. Later, after a local black man named Tom Robinson (Brock Peters) is accused of the crime he obviously didn’t commit, the judge assigns the case to Atticus. He’s the type of father every man wants to be, and the kind of man every father hopes to measure up to. Innocent, free of guile, and still untouched by the compromises of adulthood, children literally look up to their parents with the unquestioning belief that they hold all the answers. “I think it embarrasses him to be thanked,” he tells her. They seem 10 feet tall. After Atticus has lost Robinson’s trial, he exits the courtroom. He’d been nominated for four Oscars, but Atticus was the role that would finally win him one. Atticus will pay a steep price, his family’s safety will be put in jeopardy, but he never lets Jem and Scout see that cost. The black spectators in the balcony (the only vantage point they’re allowed to watch from) all rise to their feet. Without spelling it out, he teaches his kids that doing what’s right isn’t always easy. Show Full Article Atticus becomes the target of the town’s bigotry while trying to show his kids, Jem (Phillip Alford) and Scout (Mary Badham), the difference between right and wrong by example. By then, he was already Hollywood’s standard-bearer of onscreen stoicism and message-movie moral decency. And as played by Gregory Peck, he is. It’s not hard to see why. He always has time to read them a bedtime story, talk to them on a porch swing, or be stern with them when he has to. But its lessons of tolerance, kindness, and compassion are timeless. When the man leaves, Atticus tells Scout that maybe next time she shouldn’t come and get him. To Scout Finch, her father seems even taller than that. It’s clear Atticus doesn’t welcome this particular burden and the lynch-mob wrath that will come with it, but the expression on Peck’s face tells you that he knows that if he doesn’t defend Robinson, no one else will.

Orphan Black creators on that shocking death

We kind of knew in season 5 that Kira was going to play a bigger role in the season, and we knew that was coming. I mean, initially, this whole sequence appeared in the season 4 finale. JOHN FAWCETT: It was. I think there is something alluring about him for certain. EW: We end with Delphine visiting Mrs. MANSON: We really liked the idea that Delphine is really torn away from Cosima in the first episode of the season, and within the confines of our schedule, we saw the opportunity to set up more of a season-long mystery, a little something on the side between S and Delphine. So we ended up doing one big long shot in the alley and then trying to put a little time cut in there to get her into Felix’s hallway, and then just sort of worked it out from there. S and Delphine, as it appears that they’re going to work together. Veera Suominen. So it was fun to actually see them doing it real time, and the complication is we don’t have a way to edit around that. This is a longstanding conflict between Veera and Ferdinand that we set up in season 4, and in season 4 we discovered that Ferdinand way back killed her best friend, and she comes after Ferdinand in season 4 seeking revenge   and steals all his money and almost kills him. is gone? So we realized that we actually didn’t have the screen time to manage it. We’d always talked about it but never done it. Westmoreland who says he wants Cosima to keep working to save herself and her sisters. So, like John and I say, nobody is safe, and we’ve really got to look forward now to some interesting deep character study coming up now that things have found a little bit of a level with Rachel and apparently everybody is going to be sort of in their own homes. The alley down below is actually one big long shot as well, and that shot was going to follow Sarah up the stairs into the loft and then…right into the loft in one big long sort of seamless oner. MANSON: John’s direction was, “Okay, now froth at the mouth.”
FAWCETT: There was a lot of anger. It’s so valuable and so interesting it’s beyond actually anything that Rachel thinks she might find, and that’s why ultimately Sarah says that it’s the most important thing that they can’t have, is kind of the way that we felt about this power that Kira has. and Sarah, what we should make of the debut of P.T. This is perhaps the most human part of Kira. Westmoreland, and much more. MANSON: Yeah, it really was a sort of directorial desire and something that we’d wanted to do ever since. How does Sarah even digest something like that, that her daughter wants to be with her tormentor? I think that’s going to be a relief to a lot of fans about where Delphine’s heart lies, because if you don’t trust Delphine at this point perhaps you don’t even trust Mrs. FAWCETT: How much? You know, we in the writers’ room and amongst ourselves when we talk about it, we call it Kira’s woo-woo, and it’s one of those things that we’ve always said, this isn’t something that science can put its finger on. S, but maybe that’s the point of this entire exercise. But we’d always been talking about doing one long shot that didn’t have any cuts in it. There was a good focus on the season on giving Kira stronger storylines and making her a more integral part of the plot. Because Rachel in this episode that we just saw has become enlightened, and she has taken on the mantle of the heir to Neolution, and Ferdinand is pissed because he hates them. FAWCETT: It was technically extremely complex. You know, if Sarah and S wouldn’t have intervened, Ferdinand would have been dead. You all do not kill characters lightly and you certainly do not kill clones lightly, yet you do exactly that here by having Ferdinand stomp on the chest of M.K. Mika, a.k.a. Contrary to what happened in the series debut, Orphan Black does not kill clones lightly, especially after we get to know one of the sestras. Ken   Woroner/BBC AMERICA

EW: Speaking of complex, John, you have this incredibly long scene between Sarah and M.K. We’d talked about certain technical things at the beginning of the year that are challenges or that John would like to do along with the sort of storytelling things that we’d like to do. She really kind of is, I think, skeptical but fascinated with this man, and that was kind of the way we wanted to present him. EW: Staying with Kira, she refuses to go and hide with Sarah and says “I want to go with Rachel,” which is kind of like a child telling a single parent they want to go be with the other parent, only a million times worse. What was shooting that like? There was a lot of direction. I don’t know why on God’s green earth you would trust this guy. S. This was a conflict between the two. GRAEME MANSON: Because nobody is safe on the show and we’re in our final season. We were going to do all kinds of stuff. Now there are dangers to this because as we all know, the clones like to be in charge of their own business. We have to figure out how they switch clothes and wigs and all that stuff in one shot. Westmoreland. I mean, it starts outside and it moves inside, and that was the idea we were going to do last year, and the shot got bigger and got smaller as per things that were technically available. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start right with the biggest moment from the episode. He’s obviously very smart and very charming, and we’re very interested in the dangerous fascination that Cosima has for P.T. There are many layers and I like it because it’s complex. It’s a real moment of maturity for them both that I think we were really fascinated with, and I know Tatiana was really fascinated with that —   having to let go and having to surrender your daughter to Rachel is the hardest thing that I think Tat has done on the show to date. How much should we trust this guy? MANSON: Yeah, such a hard thing for a mother because that is like…it is a little bit of Kira wanting to fly the nest. FAWCETT: The shot was actually quite a bit more elaborate. MANSON: Well, it’s a quality in Kira that we’ve been lightly hinting at the whole series. He’s got a fascinating story of being very old, and he’s interesting and compelling, and Cosima has always been drawn to ideas and science, and she’s a bit of a sucker in that sort of sense. FAWCETT: It was important to us too. with no cuts, it’s kind of like Hitchcock’s Rope except Hitchcock didn’t have to deal with doubling up the same actor in the same scene. I think what’s cool about it is not just that it’s one shot but the fact that when we do switcheroos usually we don’t get to see a ton of the actual process of the switcheroo. EW: In other news, we finally meet the mysterious P.T. So that should play out interestingly. John wanted to run on rooftops. So it was no small thing for creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett to send one of the Project Leda clones to the afterlife on the latest episode, and that clone was hacker hermit M.K., a.k.a. But if there’s anyone who knows what’s best for them after these years it is Mrs. I think we’ve got a great opportunity here to sort of ask, who are these characters now compared to who they were when we first met them? MANSON: Yeah, he’s been spiritually betrayed by Rachel. Show Full Article In the original script of the season 4 finale, this was going to happen —   this entire thing all was going to happen there. Which is a great joy of a final season, is to really look a little deeper and look deep into the hearts of these women we think we knew so well. MANSON: It’s got to be a pretty burning desire for revenge for him to, in fact, double-cross Rachel. Why do that to poor Veera? We asked the creators about their decision to kill off one of the clones, how they put together the complex, no-cut scene between M.K. It’s the invisible things that connect us, like extrasensory perception and things like that. His heart is a little bit broken so he breaks poor M.K.’s heart. I mean, when you see him stomping he’s practically frothing at the mouth. But M.K. That one really, really stuck with us, and we were like, yeah, that long shot where they change clothes and we never cut away, and we’d pitch it to the writers and everybody loved it. So I think that part of this anger that comes out in the stomping of M.K., part of that is just feeling like he’s been betrayed a bit by Rachel. Yeah, he’s clearly working through some issues, right? Rachel is so gifted at going for the weak spot and Sarah recognizes that she’s dragged her daughter around, and this is her daughter standing up and speaking to her as an adult for perhaps the first time. FAWCETT: Yeah, absolutely. SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s “Clutch of Greed” episode of Orphan Black. FAWCETT: And it’s also interesting too because I think psychologically when he lands on M.K., she’s dressed like Rachel. We’ve been opening doors and climbing the ladder, and we finally kind of got to the top of the pyramid and this is the guy that we’ve discovered here. We’d never done anything like that before. So there is a kind of an interesting psychological angle to Ferdinand’s anger, how he expresses it and why he kills her. We had to cut it because it became a little too complex for season 4 finale, so we pushed it off into season 5. What can you say about that and what’s coming up on the show? He’s got a lot of anger and I think a lot of the Ferdinand psychology is that he has a lot of anger that he hasn’t expressed even towards Rachel. You’re right, we don’t kill clones easily, but I guess it was just M.K.’s time. So it became this challenge. Rachel might get the biology but she won’t get this, this feeling, this thing that protects us. It’s not just killing M.K. So it was a fun challenge. In a show that’s often about choice, this kid is standing up and demanding her own terrain. We can’t. took off with his money, and certainly Ferdinand has a bone to pick, and he wants to finish Helsinki. EW: What are we to make of the fact that Kira can somehow feel that M.K.
