“Rampage” Tops Box-Office As “Avengers” Awaits

 

Dwayne Johnson’s video game adaptation “Rampage” fought off stiff competition from “A Quiet Place” in its second week to top the U.S. domestic box-office for the weekend.

“Rampage” won the weekend with $34.5 million in the U.S., and overseas beat expectations with a further $114.1 million – helped by a $55 million opening in China. Reviews were weak, but not terrible, for the $120 million-budget film which also nabbed an A- CinemaScore.

“A Quiet Place” only dropped 29% in its second weekend, pulling in a further $32.6 million which brings its total up to $100 million – impressive for a film that cost just $17 million. The microbudget “Truth or Dare” scored scathing reviews, but still managed a strong $19 million opening weekend – almost six times its $3.5 million cost.

“Ready Player One” slipped to fourth with a further $11.2 million and now has a worldwide total of $474.8 million. “Blockers” closed out the top five with a further $10.3 million and a $36.9 million gross after two weeks.

Everyone is counting down to the arrival of “Avengers: Infinity War” with Box-Office Pro revising its domestic opening weekend estimates to somewhere between $235-255 million. That would put it past “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and make it the biggest film opening weekend of all time.

‘Smallville’ Actress Allison Mack Arrested in Alleged Cult Sex Trafficking

Well today just got a little weird. Maybe the world is crumbing? President Trump is making headlines every day for his dealing’s with Russia, Avicii died earlier this morning, and now ‘Smallville’ actress Allison Mack was just arrested for sex trafficking!

Allison Mack was arraigned Friday afternoon in connection with a case that involved an alleged cult leader involved with sex trafficking!

The ‘Smallville’ actress, along with NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere, also known as “Vanguard (no relation to ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy,)” was charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.

“As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere,” United States Attorney Richard P. Donoghue revealed in a statement released Friday afternoon. “The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit.”

Avicii, International Popstar, Dead at 28

 

Avicii, DJ Producer and international pop star, is dead at the young age of 28.

Earlier today the music industry was sent shock waves as it was revealed that one of the most successful and famous EDM star’s Avicii had died at only 28 years of age.

Avicii was a Grammy-nominated electric dance DJ who sold out more venues than an other EDM DJ to date. “Wake Me Up,” one of Avicii’s most successful songs was a multi-platinum success that peaked at number four on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

His death comes just days after being nominated for a 2018 Billboard Music award for his dance/electric EP “Avicii (01).”

In 2016, Avicii retired from making music, largely in part to a drug in fueled lifestyle that he had grown accustomed to on the EDM circuit.

Avicii would battle his demons, and soon over come them during his time away from the industry (mostly a drinking problem.)

Last year Avicci posted a message on his website announcing his return to the music industry. “The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.”

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” a statement from Avicii’s rep to Life and Fame earlier today reads.

“He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Watch the Men arrested at Starbucks speak out

Unless you have been living under a rock, you already know that Starbucks has been under a nationwide outcry following an incident in Philadelphia where two African-American’s were wrongfully kicked out of a Starbucks store and arrested.

The short story goes like this: Two African American men (Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson) where waiting inside of a Starbucks for their friend. The manager asked them to leave or he would call the cops since the two men didn’t purchase anything (they were considered to be loitering,) and these two men were arrested.

The story instantly made national news and Starbucks became racist enemy number one. Now Starbucks in an attempt to save its image, has decided that it will close down all of its location next month (for only a few hours) in order to provide racial bias training to its employees.

The men who were arrested during this incident at Starbucks are finally speaking out about exactly what happen in the Philadelphia Starbucks that day and what they hope the rest of the world can learn from this situation.
