If this prediction holds true, it will represent a 53.5% drop for Finding Dory in its third weekend, and push it past $300 million domestic. While $38.7 million isn't a terribly high figure for a winning summer weekend, none of the three new releases have been tracking very high with box office pundits. Box Office Mojo reports that The Legend of Tarzan will open in approximately 3,450 theaters, followed by The BFG in 3,200 theaters and The Purge: Election Year in 2,700 theaters. As of now, The BFG is the only movie to have enough reviews for a Rotten Tomatoes rating, with a solid 71% Fresh, but we'll find out later this week what the critics think of The Legend of Tarzan and The Purge: Election Year. We're predicting that The BFG takes second place with an estimated $35.4 million. … [Read more...] about Can Finding Dory Fend Off Tarzan & BFG at the Box Office?

There are at least five landfills in West Virginia that accept drill cuttings, at least five in New York, 10 in Ohio, and 25 in Pennsylvania. Most of the drill cuttings are from fracking and can be radioactive. “We have never knowingly buried very large quantities of known low-level radioactive waste in a generic, municipal solid-waste landfill originally designed for household garbage,” Bill Hughes, an industrial electrician who served 15 years on a board overseeing the municipal landfill in West Virginia’s Wetzel County, wrote to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection. The dangers involved, he said, “might not be known for generations.” In 2018, when I met Hughes, who is now deceased, he told me the issue of dealing with the industry’s radioactive drill cuttings “blindsided” state agencies. “They really weren’t sure how to regulate this,” he said. … [Read more...] about America’s Radioactive Secret
Luce — the Julius Onah-directed film stars Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Tim Roth and Mudbound‘s Kelvin Harrison Jr. Based on the J.C. Lee’s play adapted by Lee and Onah. CAA and Endeavor Content are co-repping domestic rights and BLOOM is handling offshore. Promo footage is very impressive. Harrison Jr plays Luce Edgar, a model student, track star and champion debater, stature that pleases the parents (Watts and Roth) who adopted him from a war-torn African nation and were concerned he might be haunted by the violent trauma of his upbringing in Africa. Luce’s teacher, Harriet (Spencer), believes he represents a symbol of black excellence setting a positive example for his peers – until she discovers the well-researched paper he wrote, one littered with disturbing statements about political violence. She fears he could be dangerous as her discoveries force Luce’s parents to question their assumptions of who their adopted child really is and set a … [Read more...] about Cannes 2018: Hot Sales Movie Titles

It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body.

Ayn Rand has always been controversial, and Rush received some backlash to calling her a genius on the 2112 sleeve. Did that bum you out?Oh, yeah. I have to admit, it did. I’m a very liberal guy. I always have been. I remember during our second tour of England, we did an interview with a journalist, who was very hard-left socialist, for New Musical Express [in 1978]. Ayn Rand wasn’t quite as contentious as she is today. But he set forth his point of view, and then Neil took the opposing view, as more of an exercise than anything. And they ran it as this big exposé [laughs]. It said that we were Nazis and we would leave our grandmothers starving in the street because we were so selfish and uncaring. … [Read more...] about Rush’s Alex Lifeson on 40 Years of ‘2112’: ‘It Was Our Protest Album’
