What Happens Without a Prenup? Divorce Lawyers Weigh In on Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's 15-Month Marriage

26 May 2016 5:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

How much money could Amber Heard get in her divorce from Johnny Depp? Heard filed a divorce petition on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and demanding spousal support. Depp asked a judge to refuse Heard's demand, according to documents obtained by People. The couple didn't have a prenup, according to TMZ. Legal experts say that since the marriage only lasted 15 months, Heard would have a hard time winning a hefty sum from Depp in court, but it may be worth it for the ultra-wealthy actor to pay up in order to avoid a lengthy, public divorce.

'Batman v Superman' Wins Weekend #2 at the Box Office with $52.3M

3 April 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When most movies open with huge box office numbers on their opening weekend, they typically drop a significant amount in their second weekend. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was no different in its second frame in theaters, dipping a massive 68.4% but still remaining atop the box office with $52.3 million, according to the estimates from Box Office Mojo. There were only two new releases opening in theaters, God's Not Dead 2 and Meet the Blacks, but neither came close to surpassing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Last weekend, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice surpassed its own expectations, taking in $166 million domestically and $424 million worldwide, the best global debut for any superhero movie in history. Still, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn't fare well with critics. The superhero movie continues to drop on Rotten Tomatoes, currently standing at a 28% Rotten rating, but the audience score is still overwhelmingly positive, »

Film Review: ‘God’s Not Dead 2’

1 April 2016 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Almighty is still alive, albeit also under continuing attack, in “God’s Not Dead 2,” a sequel in which the issue of religion in schools leads to a courtroom showdown over God’s rightful place in society. Boasting a superficially new plot but preaching the exact same sermon – in the identical leaden, graceless manner – as its predecessor, Harold Cronk’s follow-up concocts a laughable crisis of faith whose resolution is a fait accompli, turning the endeavor into a torturous exercise in one-note proselytizing. The franchise’s disciples will surely fill its collection plate as full as 2014’s $60-million-grossing original, but this paranoid persecution-complex fantasy is unlikely to win many converts.

Cronk’s original installment presented Kevin Sorbo’s atheistic liberal-arts professor as the embodiment of satanic evil. Since he literally died for his sins at the end of that story – only after making a deathbed conversion to Christ, however! – the »

Can 'Batman v Superman' Win Its Second Weekend at the Box Office?

29 March 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Deadpool set the pace for all superhero movies this year, setting box office records with a $132.4 million opening weekend, en route to becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time. Last weekend, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice surpassed its own expectations, taking in $166 million domestically and $424 million worldwide, the best global debut for any superhero movie in history. With the superhero movie's second weekend approaching, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will have no trouble staying in the top spot, since the only two newcomers God's Not Dead 2 and Meet the Blacks don't stand a chance at unseating this superhero movie, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com.

It's always tricky trying to predict the second weekend of a blockbuster like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially since it didn't fare well with critics. The superhero movie continues to drop on Rotten Tomatoes, »

Mike Tyson -- I Like Brad Pitt ... Even Though I Caught Him with My Ex

26 February 2016 1:18 PM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Mike Tyson says he thinks Brad Pitt is a "really nice guy" -- which is interesting considering he once caught the guy about to have sex with his estranged wife.  Iron Mike was on "The Real" when he was asked to recall that infamous moment back in the '80s when he caught his then (estranged) wife Robin Givens sneaking around their house with Pitt.  The whole thing is funny ...
