Aladdin vanquishes Memorial Day weekend curse with $112M opening




Aladdin has finally vanquished Disney's memorial day weekend with a welcome $112M 4-day opening, which is way above industry pre-weekend estimates of $75M. Disney previously has had a bunch of flops on this weekend like Solo: A Star Wars Story, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Tomorrowland and Prince of Persia.
Despite the mixed critics reviews, giving it a borderline "rotten" score at 58%, audiences seemed to love the movie, giving it 94% "verified" audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore, which helped propel it to such heights.

In other news, smaller newcomers Brightburn and Booksmart underperformed with their less than $10M openings.

'The View' Round-Up: Biden's Crime Bill Vote, Altered Pelosi Video, and More



Whoopi thinks anyone who has worked in politics for a long time has signed something at one point or another that people will look back at as bad. Joy calls out Trump's hypocrisy for wanting to give the death penalty to the Central Park Five even after they were exonerated. Sunny thinks Biden has to address the issue of voting in favor of the crime bill because mass incarceration did get worse after it was passed. Sunny doesn't like that Trump is equating black voters with only crime. Meghan thinks Biden's main problem is that he has a long record compared to people like Mayor Pete so that opens him up to more scrutiny. She also points out that despite Trump's remarks, Biden has the highest support from black voters than any other candidate at 45% and second is Bernie Sanders at 15%.

LA Lakers GM claims Kobe Bryant had dinner with Heath Ledger after Heath died



In crazy sports/compulsive liar news, in March 2018 the general manager of the Los Angeles Lakers, Rob Pelinka, told the team a story about admitted rapist Kobe Bryant having dinner with Heath Ledger to learn how he "locks in" for a role and used that in his game. Except that Pelinka claims Kobe did this after seeing Ledger's portrayal of The Joker in "The Dark Knight," which was released six months after Ledger died. Christopher Nolan has said that the movie was still being edited when Ledger died and he had only seen the opening bank robbery sequence, so no, Kobe did not have special celebrity access to an early version.

Britney Spears blasts conspiracy theorists in new Instagram video: “You’re wrong”


https://instagram.com/p/ByBOp-cgVok

Fans have been speculating for weeks now that Pop Princess Britney Spears has not been in charge of her Instagram and recent posts. Some fans were speculating that her team had full control of the account and had been posting old videos of Britney to keep fans from thinking she’s being controlled and to damage control the #FreeBritney movement.

In the new video uploaded to her Instagram, Spears blasts these conspiracies by saying, “For those of you who don’t think I post my own videos, I did this video yesterday, so you’re wrong, but hope you like it.”

In the slideshow, Britney also shared a clip of herself modeling different outfits while Rihanna’s “Man Down” played over the clip.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Details Have Leaked

ALLEGEDLY.... this is what we're getting.



- Accessories will not appear on character models, but equipped weapons will (in battle, exploring, etc).

- Magic consumes MP and ATB, which the player gets more of as the game progresses.

- There will be one new Summon, Amarok, who is wolf-like in appearance and inflicts Darkness with its damage.

- Open-world map with roads and modes of transportation to get through. Vehicles like the Tiny Bronco work almost exactly the same. Available items will occasionally appear on the field.

- A lot of effort has been put into the culture and unique traits of each town, making each location very different from the next, which ultimately contributes to a richer world.

- Monsters have been re-designed but will remain recognizable. However, some monsters seem to have been scrapped altogether (i.e: no Ghost enemies in the Train Yard).

- Tifa's new design stays true to her original outfit, with her face reportedly being a "slightly more Western" version of her Advent Children features.

- Cait Sith is pronounced like 'Ket-Sith'.

** Story SPOILERS ahead from this point on **


[Spoiler (click to open)]- Game will be in two parts. Part One fades to black as Aerith is let down into the water after her death.
- Sephiroth will be very elusive until the Kalm flashback.

- Shinra Headquarters, while having less floors, will have more obstacles than in the original. Have fun getting to the top, sis.

- Yuffie and Vincent are no longer optional.

- While we won't get to see Cloud physically put on that dress and wig, we will reportedly NOT BE ROBBED OF CLOUD IN DRAG.

Mountain climber influencer who complained about Everest overcrowding, dies climbing the Everest



Robin Fisher, a British and experimented climber with over 89,000 followers on social media, complained on Instagram about the excessive amounts of people that have arrived to Nepal to try and climb the dangerous mountain. One day after that, he suffered an untimely death due to lack of oxygen. He said 'Delays caused by overcrowding could prove fatal,'while warning of overcrowding on the mountain.

This year has been one of the deadliest ones for Everest climbers, due to it being overcrowded, with over 11 deaths so far. Causing waiting lines of up to 3 hours to ascend, depleting the climbers’ oxygen tanks in a place where oxygen is trascendental and large quantities of trash being discarded all over the place.

Nepali government issuing more climbing permits than the place can handle and tourist agencies taking inexperienced individuals despite the potential dangers, are contributing factors to this death toll

Lorne Michaels Pressured Chris Kattan to sleep with Night at the Roxbury director Amy Heckerling










In an excerpt from Chris Kattan’s recent memoir, he describes being pressured by Lorne Michaels, who had signed on to produce A Night at the Roxbury, to sleep with Clueless director Amy Heckerling, who was, at the time, attached to the project

Kattan writes:

“Paramount would only do the movie if Amy signed on as director … If I wanted to make sure the movie happened, I had to keep Amy happy,”.

Lorne apparently said:

“Chris, I’m not saying you have to fuck her, but it wouldn’t hurt,”

Kattan claims that a few weeks later, he and Heckerling had sex. I was attracted to Amy,” he writes. “But at the same time very afraid of the power she and Lorne wielded over my career.”

Heckerling ultimately ended up taking on a producer role, and John Fortenberry stepped in as director
