The Weekend Warrior 9/30/2016: Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Masterminds

28 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

 While the new movies reigned at the box office this past weekend, both Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (Sony) and the animated Storks (Warner Bros.) didn’t fare nearly as well as our projections, both falling short by about $10 million. The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, fared decently with $34.7million, which is about the average for Washington’s films, but the fourth highest opening for a Western after last year’s The Revenant, the animated Rango, and Cowboys and Aliens. Storks’ $21.3 million opening wasn’t great compared to other animated September releases with Sony still holding the September opening record with Hotel Transylvania 2, but it should continue to do well with no other animated movies opening for another month. »

Fans of Dancing with the Stars may not immediately recognize Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds, 58, but there's zero doubt they're familiar with his music. Edmond's songs have been performed on The Voice, American Idol, Lip Sync Battle and The X Factor, been featured in movies (Waiting to Exhale, Boomerang, The Bodyguard and Soul Food), on TV series (Friends, New Girl, Beavis and Butt-Head) and served as the soundtrack for choreographed numbers on SoYou Think You Can Dance as well as DWTS.

Edmonds will have a leg up on his competitors thanks to the innate sense of rhythm that has catapulted him into R&B superstardom. Here's a few more things you should know about Edmonds before he takes to the floor for DWTS season 23.

11 strange or ill-advised abandoned movie sequels

27 June 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jun 30, 2016

Jessica Rabbit kidnapped by Nazis. Costner rescuing Princess Diana. We look back at a few strange movie sequels that were never made…

The multi-million dollar success of any movie will inevitably leave Hollywood executives clamouring for a sequel. And while there are plenty of movies whose stories are open-ended enough to warrant a return to the creative well, there are many times when coming up with a follow-up idea requires all sorts of imaginative leaps. Just look at something like Alien: Resurrection, which had to come up an elaborate reason why Ripley had (spoiler alert) managed to survive a swan-dive into a lead foundry in Alien 3.

Which brings us to this list, which is devoted to a few of the weirder sequel ideas that never made it to the big screen. An E.T. sequel in which little Elliott gets tortured by aliens? Forrest Gump dancing with Princess Diana? »

Beyoncé's Cover of Whitney Houston's Classic 'I Will Always Love You' Will Give You Chills

6 March 2016 8:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We will always love Beyoncé's cover of "I Will Always Love You." The pop star again performed her version of Whitney Houston's iconic ballad - following similar covers, for example, in 2012 and, for Paul Walker, in 2013 - while appearing Saturday at the Center for Early Education's 75th Anniversary Gala in Los Angeles. (Houston's version, made famous by The Bodyguard in 1992, is of course itself a cover, of Dolly Parton's 1974 original.) Then as now, Beyoncé blew through the smash hit's sweeping notes, as audience members soaked up snippets of her voice with their phones. Then this happened!!!! Beyoncé singing some Whitney! »
