Box Office Weekend: ‘Fury’ Wins War With $23M+; ‘Book Of Life,’ $16.6M to $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M+

17 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

3rd Update, Sunday, 8:17 Am: Fury won both the battle and the war this box office weekend while newcomers The Book of Life is sitting above ground at No. 3 with about $16.6M to $17M and The Best of Me got bested by four other films to take the fifth spot with only $10M and change. More interesting this weekend is the specialty box office where several really quality pictures found their audiences such as Birdman which flew in with a whopping $103K per screen average for Fox Searchlight and New Regency (on a roll lately as they also have the No. 2 Gone Girl which just passed $100M). It marks the second highest per screen average of the year behind another fav, Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel ($202K), also from Fsl. Writer/director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent which is in limited release, can also boast a strong $10K for »

‘Fury’ Box Office Opens To Strong $1.2M; ‘Book Of Life’ To $300K – Late Nights; Friday Matinees Tumble In

17 October 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Friday, 2:03 Pm: With matinee grosses tumbling in, it appears at the moment that The Book Of Life is headed to a $4M-$5.2M Friday night with most of its audiences sure to come in on family moviegoing Saturday and Sunday for Fox. Currently, that puts it in the $11.5M-$15M range for the three-day week. Likewise, the Brad Pitt war movie Fury — which is expected to win the weekend — will see its R-rated audience come in later this evening and tonight for Sony and Qed. Right now, it’ss tracking for a $8M-$9M+ Friday or a three-day debut in the $21M-$25M range. Word of mouth on this mostly positively-reviewed movie should help. The Best Of Me from Relativity, as previously noted below, is not expected to do much business and that is certainly the case in matinees. It may make around $3M-$4.5M today on track »

Joe Biden's Son Fired From the Navy Over Reported Cocaine Use

17 October 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden has been kicked out of the navy after he reportedly tested positive for cocaine. Hunter, who is a former lobbyist and managing partner at investment firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, had applied for a part-time position as a public affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. The navy confirmed that Hunter had been discharged in February but declined to confirm why he had been fired. Hunter addressed the issue in a statement but failed to confirm why he was fired. He said, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the Us Navy. I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge." This isn't the first time that 42-year-old Hunter has caused controversy. Earlier this year, Hunter was criticized for joining the board of a private Ukrainian gas company just as the Obama administration was working »

Joe Biden's Son Hunter Biden Kicked Out of Navy After Testing Positive for Cocaine

17 October 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was kicked kicked out of the Navy in February, it was revealed Thursday. The reason? Per NBC News, the 44-year-old former public-affairs ensign tested positive for cocaine in a 2013 drug test. According to a U.S. official, Hunter's dismissal from the Naval Reserves wasn't made public "because he was treated like any other sailor who fails a drug test and is thrown out of the Navy." The official noted cases of this nature are not reported routinely due to the Privacy Act. Hunter, who joined the Navy Reserves back in 2012, issued a statement Thursday, saying, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the Us Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed »

Colin Powell on ‘Fury': ‘This is Really How It is’

16 October 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A gaggle of D.C. VIPs including Vice President Joe Biden turned out for the world preem of Sony’s “Fury” at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum Wednesday night (15).

Wisely avoiding the red carpet scrum outside, Biden and Second Lady Jill slipped quietly into the reception for pre-screening chats with other attendees including cast member Brad Pitt and Gen. Colin Powell. The affair drew an eclectic mix of Washington officialdom including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, MPAA topper Chris Dodd, Gen. George Casey, White House Social Secretary Jeremy Bernard and hockey superstar Alex Ovechkin.

The pic’s director/writer David Ayer, a U.S. Navy veteran, was clearly savoring the experience. “This is a film that I wanted to get out of Los Angeles,” he explained. “I made it for the military, for the people who serve.” The fictional account of a beleaguered World War II tank crew, “Fury »

President Obama Returns to L.A. Thursday for More Fundraising

8 October 2014 5:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You know the drill: President Obama’s plane lands Thursday afternoon at Lax and that means it’s time to cut out early and avoid the traffic jam.

Once again, Obama is coming to Los Angeles for fundraising and other events. This time the trip will highlighted by a Thursday evening event at the Brentwood-area home of actress Gwyneth Paltrow, which will no doubt create commuting problems (nicknamed Obamajams) for those on the west side of the city. Tickets to the event start at $1,000-per-person to attend a reception and run up to $32,400 for the reception, plus dinner and greeting and photo with the president. The money is going to the Democratic National Committee, which also held a contest to win a trip to L.A. to attend and meet the president.

Almost as predictable as worries about Obamajams are protests surrounding the commander-in-chief. Mysterious “Obama Drone” posters have popped up in Paltrow’s neighborhood, »

Jason Jones and Samantha Bee fight over hosting 'The Daily Show'

Jon Stewart called in sick last night, opening the door for Jason Jones to host The Daily Show. It's his turn. With John Oliver gone to HBO, Jones is the heir apparent. Just don't say that to Samantha Bee, his wife. "Obviously, I am not Jon Stewart," Jones said. "Jon is out sick tonight with a bad case of something called the bubons. I'm not sure I'm pronouncing that ... the bubons. It's apparently an illness that effects only people from New Jersey." Fortunately, Jones had lots of help from a late-night host's best friend, Vice President Joe Biden, who was »

Who Is Joe Biden?! Jimmy Kimmel Stumps Americans in Hilarious Video (No, He's Not in Pineapple Express)

7 October 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Boy, that Joe Biden can sure stop traffic (as evidenced by his visit to Los Angeles this week), but what does the man really do?  While the answer may seem simple—he's the Vice President of the United States—Jimmy Kimmel asked a number of Americans to correctly identify the 71-year-old politician and surprisingly enough (or shall we say alarmingly?) the majority of folks were entirely stumped.  After being inspired by the road closures in Los Angeles, the comedian addressed the audience at Jimmy Kimmel Live and inquired, "No offense, but do we really need to stop traffic for Joe Biden? I mean, I know he is the Vice President, but I wonder how many »

Jimmy Kimmel Asks Americans Who Joe Biden Is, and They Have Absolutely No Idea

7 October 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

On Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, random Americans on Hollywood Boulevard were asked who Joe Biden is, and the responses were all over the place. Jimmy made a point to say that the crew specifically asked Americans, but apparently that didn't help. Some thought he was a governor, some thought he may be a movie star, and others thought he was a terrorist. One guy wasn't quite sure who Joe Biden was, but he definitely knew that he wasn't a friend of President Obama. Watch the full clip above and then check out more must-see viral videos! »

Joe Biden may be leaving the White House in 2016, but Americans have already forgotten him. With the vice president's motorcade clogging up streets in Los Angeles on Monday, Jimmy Kimmel set out to test the politician's celebrity status in Hollywood. See video: Jimmy Kimmel Celebrates Being Named the Internet's Most Dangerous Searched Celebrity (Video) When Kimmel's crew asked strangers on the street to explain who Biden is, the answers ranged from way off (“a terrorist group?”) to luke warm (“a congressman?”) to close enough (“he's like the assistant president, or something, right?”).

Best of Late Night TV: Will.i.am's 'Ew' Music Video and Aziz Ansari's Feminism (Video)

6 October 2014 11:34 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night. Jimmy Fallon and will.i.am teamed up for Jimmy's recurring "Tonight Show" segment, "Ew" -- but instead of sitting on a couch and musing about things being "ew," they made an epic music video. And yes, will.i.am dressed up as a girl named mir.i.am for the event and busted out lyrics like "she's so basically basic." Definitely worth watching, as long as you're ready for this song to be stuck in your head all day. Carol Burnett stopped by "The Tonight Show" to preview a clip of the early 90s soap opera she starred in with Jimmy Fallon -- aptly called "Tensions." And »
