Taraji P. Henson, Kris Jenner and More Celebrities React to Missing Black Girls in D.C.

7 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This week, Washington, D.C., made headlines as the city’s Metropolitan Police Department recently began tweeting out missing-person reports — with an alarming number of them for  young black women and Latinas.

Though officials have insisted that the numbers reflect only the fact that the department recently started using social media to help close cases, many have voiced concern that the numbers reflect a much larger problem in how commonly people of color go missing, both in the nation’s capital and around the country, as well as over serious gaps in media coverage of these cases as opposed to those about white people. »

Pulse Shooting Survivor Angel Colon on Finding Forgiveness: ‘I Forgive Him … But I Can Never Forget’

24 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Angel Colon lay bleeding on the floor of Orlando’s Pulse nightclub. He’d been shot six times, and as the gunman drew closer, shooting at fallen bodies to make sure they were dead, Colon couldn’t move.

But he survived the June 12, 2016, attack thanks to a police officer dragged him to safety. Now, more than eight months after the deadliest mass shooting in American history killed 49 people and injured 53 others, the 26-year-old Colon is moving forward as a survivor.

In order to do so, he says, he has forgiven the shooter, 29-year-old Omar Mateen, who was fatally shot by police that night. »

How Pulse Shooting Survivor Angel Colon Is Healing: ‘I Had to Leave the Anger Behind’

23 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Angel Colon has always been a positive person. A Zumba instructor in Orlando, the 26-year-old says he always shared a message of  “love, hope and positivity.” 

But Colon’s life changed forever on June 12, 2016 when gunman Omar Mateen entered the Pulse nightclub. By the time his rampage was over, he’d killed 49 people and injured 53 more.

Colon, 26, was shot six times, in the leg, hips and hand. Mateen aimed for his head, but missed. “I thought I was going to die,” Colon tells People in its latest issue.

After three surgeries and months of rehab, Colon is on the mend »

Pulse Shooting Survivor Angel Colon’s Crusade: ‘I Was Shot by a Man Who Never Should Have Had a Gun’

22 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On June 12, 2016, Angel Colon was having a carefree weekend out with some friends in Orlando, Florida, when he found himself plunged into a nightmare.

Early that Sunday, gunman Omar Mateen burst into the Pulse nightclub. By the time his rampage was over, he’d killed 49 people and injured 53 more.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

Colon, 26, was shot six times. He has since gone through three surgeries and months of rehab. A former Zumba instructor, Colon was used to being in top physical shape; now he’s in the midst of a long healing process.

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ Looking Like Winner as ‘Rogue One,’ ‘Sing’ Keep Chugging

3 January 2017 2:59 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The winter holidays may be over, but Hollywood is still hoping to capture a little bit more of their residual glow as it heads into January.

Fox’s “Hidden Figures,” Sony’s “Underworld: Blood Wars,” and Focus Features’ “A Monster Calls” will all try to lure moviegoers to the multiplexes this weekend. Despite the influx of new blood, some familiar films are likely to top box office charts. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Sing” will be in a tight race for first place. Both films could end their weekend with $25 million in receipts. “Rogue One” recently crossed the $800 million mark globally and its domestic total stands at $439.7 million. It will debut in China over the weekend, the only major market where it has yet to screen. Most analysts expect it will eventually cross $1 billion worldwide — becoming the fourth Disney release from 2016 to hit that number.

Two weeks ago, I published a column titled "Lucasfilm Has Turned The Star Wars Galaxy Into The Marvel Universe." In that piece, I touched on a few key ways in which The House That Lucas Built was borrowing heavily from Marvel's model for the McU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Today one of our readers, UnBoxing Jon, is back with another Reader Submission where he takes that idea another step farther.
