‘Tomorrowland’ Earns $725,000, ‘Poltergeist’ Scares Up $1.4 Million on Thursday Night
Disney opted to limit the Thursday showings of the George Clooney sci-fier to what it dubbed “movie palaces” in order to highlight director Brad Bird’s vision.

‘Human Centipede’ Director Tom Six Takes on Censorship, Critics: ‘I Like the People Who Hate It’
Tom Six, the notorious writer-director behind the infamous “Human Centipede” trilogy, has always been a bit of a mystery … until now. Having drawn comparisons to a modern-day Ed Wood, the 41-year-old Dutch filmmaker exhibits a gift for making audiences squirm.

Relativity Media Financing Triggers Public Dispute With Investor
Long-simmering reports of financial strains at Relativity Media broke into the open Friday when the company accused one of its backers of privately badmouthing its economic condition in an attempt to take control of the mini-studio.
Relativity said in a statement that New York-based Colbeck Capital had engaged in a “play…to try to seize control of Relativity by trying to spread false rumors about the state of the company.” Relativity chief executive Ryan Kavanaugh remains “fully in control,” the statement said.
The film and television company also said that Colbeck’s two members on the Relativity board “will be removed from the board next week.”
The New York Post reported early Friday that Kavanaugh needed to raise $200 million by the end of the month and risked losing control of his company. Relativity denied that, issuing a statement that said: “Under Ryan Kavanaugh’s leadership, Relativity has successfully recapitalized its »

Michael B. Jordan Fires Back at ''Internet Trolls'' Who Are Angry Over His Fantastic Four Casting
Sure, Michael B. Jordan could just ignore all of the negative comments thrown around over his Fantastic Four casting, or he could put them in their place by writing a perfectly put-together piece that addresses and shuts down their criticism. Yeah, the latter sounds better to us, too. And that's just what he did. The 28-year-old actor wrote a response to "Internet trolls, which was published by Entertainment Weekly, and began by putting the elephant in the room out into the open—a black actor is playing the role of a blond-haired, blue-eyed character in the comic book.

Cannes Palm Dog Award Goes to ‘Arabian Nights’ Canine
The pooch from “Arabian Nights” fetched the Palm Dog award at Cannes on Friday. Lucky, who appeared in the Portuguese film, was found to be top dog at the U.K. Film Centre pavilion.
“I think it was the jumpers (sweaters) – it has 10 different dog jumpers in this film,” said film critic Kate Muir while presenting the award.
The Maltipoo — half Maltese and half miniature poodle — even got to bark a couple of remarks in an acceptance speech.
The lighthearted award has come under some criticism by the French, who say it’s too frivolous for the high-minded films of Cannes.
“Luckily, I like dogs,” a French reporter told Yahoo News. “But seen from the French perspective, this is a bit bizarre. The British are weird. »

Let's revisit people's insane reactions to 'The Exorcist' in 1974
I just watched "The Exorcist" again on Netflix and was astonished by just how powerfully frightening it remains over 40 years later. I can only image what audiences in 1973/74 were feeling when they saw it in theaters for the first time. There had been no other horror film quite like it, and as you can see in these videos unearthed by the A.V. Club (via the Playlist), some folks were so horrified they literally fainted upon exiting the theater. Check out the videos below. Fascinating stuff. »

Josh Duggar Police Report: Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios Was Tipped Off About Molestation Accusations, Family Interview Never Happened
Is this the reason why Oprah Winfrey has never interviewed any member of the Duggar family of 19 Kids and Counting fame? The 2006 police report unearthed by In Touch this week, in which now 27-year-old Josh Duggar was accused of molesting underage girls in 2002 and 2003, states that it was a fax from Oprah Winfrey-owned Harpo Studios that tipped local authorities off to a possible crime having been committed. A source also confirms to E! News' Harpo's involvement as relayed in the police report, but no further details were forthcoming. An Oprah Winfrey Show interview with some of the Duggars was apparently in the planning stages when, per the report, Harpo received an email on Dec. 7, 2006, in which »
