Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are feeling the love! The couple recently jetted off to France for a romantic getaway courtesy of Booking.com, and on Friday, they were spotted soaking up the sun along the rocky coast. Gabrielle put her sexy curves on display in a neon green one-piece while Dwyane went shirtless and showed off his impressive abs. Gabrielle and Dwyane appeared to have a blast as they showed some adorable Pda and Gabrielle even had an impromptu photo shoot. I don't know about you, but I'm definitely craving a vacation after seeing these pictures.

Gabrielle and Dwyane's envy-inducing vacation comes amid reports that the Miami Heat star may be retiring from basketball soon.

'Deadpool 2' Launches with Over $300 Million Worldwide
Even though Deadpool 2 didn't deliver a record opening domestically for an R-rated movie it still captured a few record of its own as well as delivered a couple studio records en route to an impressive $301.3 million worldwide debut. Meanwhile Avengers: Infinity War continued it's impressive run becoming the fourth largest global release of all-time while Paramount's Book Club and Global Road's Show Dogs delivered on expectations in their attempts at counter-programming against the pair of superhero features. Early indications were that Deadpool 2 would deliver a record opening for an R-rated film after bringing in a pair of R-rated records with $18.6 million from Thursday previews and a $53.3 million opening day. However, it wasn't able to maintain that momentum, finishing with a still impressive $125 million estimate for the three-day, which is enough to become the second largest R-rated opening ever behind the original's $132.4 million debut two years ago and

‘Deadpool 2’ Dives Into Box Office With $125 Million Opening

The Avengers’ reign atop the box office has come to an end at the hands of the black sheep of the Marvel family, as 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool 2” takes over the top spot with an opening of $125 million.

That means that the Ryan Reynolds sequel will fall just short of the $132 million made by the first “Deadpool” two years ago, despite setting a new opening day record for R-rated films with $53 million. After that Friday result, industry estimates were projecting a 15 percent drop for Saturday, but the Saturday returns ended up being more than 20 percent down.

But Fox won’t cry over spilled milk — or perhaps in this antihero’s case, spilled blood — as “Deadpool 2” joins its predecessor as the only films released by the studio since 2011 to score openings above $100 million. With “DP2” making $301 million on 4,349 screens its opening weekend, it is the second-biggest launch and

‘Breaking In’ Signals the Rise of Gabrielle Union as a Box Office Star

‘Breaking In’ Signals the Rise of Gabrielle Union as a Box Office Star
While “Avengers: Infinity War” left box office beancounters’ jaws on the floor with its huge Chinese launch last weekend, Gabrielle Union was quietly making her first steps on her path to becoming the next big box office star with her latest film, “Breaking In.”

Made on a thrifty $6 million budget, “Breaking In” stars Union as a mother forced to break out the shotguns after thieves invade her late father’s mansion and hold her children hostage in an attempt to access the house’s vault.

Though critics panned it, the film made $17.5 million from 2,537 screens this past weekend. By comparison, this past weekend’s other new release, Melissa McCarthy’s “Life of the Party,” needed over 1,100 more screens to open to $17.8 million, giving “Breaking In” the higher per screen average at just under $7,000 per screen.

Doa Pilots: What Didn't Get Picked Up?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… if the television pilot that you wrote, cast, produced, shot, acted in and/or toiled over in an all-encompassing manner landed a coveted series pickup.

If not, Upfronts Week — aka the time when networks greenlight the shows with which they’ll fill the upcoming year’s line-ups — is a rough go. And it seems even worse when you consider the potential series that had so much buzz and such sparkling star power, they seemed like slam-dunks for the fall or midseason schedule.

Box-Office Weekend: Avengers: Infinity War Tops Box Office Again

Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War decided to celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend by topping the box office for a third consecutive week. Taking in $61.8 million, the film brought its three-week tally to an impressive $547.8 million, making it the eighth largest domestic release ever. Worldwide, the film has become the fifth largest global release of all time as it has earned a staggering $1.6 billion—just behind Jurassic World (2015) which earned $1.67 billion.

Two new releases took the next two spots in this week’s top ten. The Melissa McCarthy-led comedy Life of the Party debuted with $18.5 million, landing it in second place. Just behind that, with $16.5 million, was the thriller Breaking In, starring Gabrielle Union. The unnecessary remake of Overboard finished its second week of release in fourth place with $10.1 million, giving it a two-week total of $29.6 million.

Review: Breaking In

by Chris Feil

Twist a tried-and-true subgenre like the home invasion movie with just the slightest bit of invention and we’re intrigued - like say, the homeowners are the one who have to do the invading. Add in relatable context for emotional investment - motherly instincts, forging one’s own family unit after estrangement, female badassery. Sign up a dependable actress like Gabrielle Union and you have a formula for easy popcorn thrills and a rewarding opportunity for an underutilized actress to take center stage.

How has Hollywood not yet realized that Union is a star, and one we want to watch take revenge on a slew of bad guys with her poise and no-bullshit wit? Thank you, I'll have five. But Breaking In is only half of that movie.

Avengers: Infinity War Wins for 3rd Weekend In a Row with $61.8M

As was expected, Marvel's early summer blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War easily won at the box office for its third weekend in a row, taking in $61.8 million. This weekend's tally helped push it past the $500 million mark with a current domestic total of $547.8 million. The movie passed the $500 million plateau after just 15 days in release, the second fastest movie of all time to hit that mark, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took just 10 days to reach half a billion dollars at the box office.

Avengers: Infinity War also passed another milestone internationally, reaching the $1 billion foreign plateau, on the strength of a massive $200 million opening weekend in China. Avengers: Infinity War currently has $1.059 billion from foreign markets, which, when combined with the $547.8 million domestic haul puts its global total at $1.606 billion, the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, surpassing the global tally of 2012's The Avengers ($1.518 billion

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Remains the Life of the Box-Office Party, but Melissa McCarthy Disappoints

All Marvel, all the time. At $61.8 million in its third weekend, “Avengers: Infinity War” had a higher gross than any opening weekend this year. That will continue with the release of “Deadpool 2” this week — presumably the last Marvel movie from 20th Century Fox, pending the Disney takeover.

This trio reinforces the sense that Marvel is the biggest force in global cinema, more than even the Star Wars franchise. (“Solo: A Star Wars Story” May 25 will be a chance to counter that belief.)

Infinity” grossed $547 million in 17 days. That is second best (in adjusted grosses) ever for that brief period, behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Its third weekend total is just behind the adjusted gross for “The Avengers” and “Black Panther” at the same point.

A $200 million opening in China, the last major country to open, propelled the worldwide gross for “Infinity” to $1.6 billion. That places it ahead

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Hits $1.6 Billion Globally to Become Top-Grossing Superhero Movie in History
After three weekends in theaters, “Avengers: Infinity War” is now the biggest superhero release of all-time after making $61.8 million domestically this weekend and opening to $200 million in China for a global weekend total of $343 million. With a global count of $1.6 billion, the film has passed the $1.51 billion made by the first “Avengers” in 2012, and later this week will pass “Jurassic World” to become the biggest summer release of all-time.

Domestically, “Avengers” performed above analyst expectations, which pegged the film for a $55-60 million result this weekend. But the Marvel movie just keeps on chugging with a higher-than-expected $27 million on Saturday, keeping this weekend’s drop-off to just 48 percent down from last weekend’s $114 million total.
