Tom & Jerry has earned the second-best box office opening of the pandemic with a projected $12.5 million.

On Wednesday night, two of Gaga's three dogs were taken by thieves who callously shot the dog walker . Fortunately, Gaga's assistant survived and is expected to make a full recovery. Extremely distraught over the missing pets, Gaga had also offered a $500,000 reward for the dogs' safe return with "no questions asked."
