Why Smurfette Was Banned from Smurfs 3 Billboards in Israel

3 hours ago

When it came time for Sony Pictures Animation to promote their upcoming reboot Smurfs: The Lost Village in certain areas of Israel, Smurfette didn't make the cut. The only female Smurf was scrubbed from a giant billboard in one very religious Israeli city. It turns out, Smurfette was banned in the name of religion.

Promotional posters for Smurfs 3 were draped across Israel on Sunday. But in the town of Bnei Brak, these images had to be slightly altered. The area is an ultra-Orthodox enclave on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. And the Jewish men who reside there are not allowed to gaze upon any woman, no matter how blue and rodent-sized they may be.

In some of Isreal's most devout communities, depictions of women are excised from any and all newspapers, catalogues and advertisements. Even during the recent U.S. election, images of Hillary Clinton were banned from coverage, leaving »

Every since the first cast photo for The Rock's new Jumanji movie arrived, controversy has swirled around Karen Gillan's skimpy costume in this so-called sequel to the Robin Williams' classic.

After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. »

Will Ghost in the Shell Top or Flop at the Box Office?

9 hours ago

While predicting box office grosses week in and week out is certainly not an exact science, some movies' blockbuster potential is much easier to identify than others. Hardly anyone was surprised that Beauty and the Beast debuted far above industry expectations, earning a record-breaking $174.7 million in its opening weekend, while dropping just 48.3% last weekend, to again easily win with $90.4 million. This weekend, the live-action fairy tale adaptation faces its biggest challenge yet, going up against DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby and Paramount's live-action manga adaptation Ghost in the Shell. Unless either of these two new releases overperforms in a big way, they shouldn't stop Beauty and the Beast from winning for a third weekend in a row, with a predicted $43.1 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Boss Baby is expected to debut in roughly 3,700 theaters, while the Ghost in the Shell adaptation is slated to debut in roughly 3,200 theaters. »
