Saturday Savings: Selena Gomez's Red Hot "Wolves" Top Is on Sale

Saturday Savings: Selena Gomez's Red Hot
Selena Gomez's red hot look from her "Wolves" music video just got easier to recreate. For the video, released in November of last year, the singer stunned in a satin red coat and matching loose-hanging pants, sitting next to a dark indoor pool. Instead of the top, she joined celebs like Hailey Baldwin and Rihanna, letting her lingerie shine. She chose the Fleur du Mal satin bra with red, magenta and navy blue color panels, adding contrast to her ensemble. It's a daring, sultry look for the star. Yet, the piece, by itself, can be worn a number of ways. You can wear under you clothes, like normal. You can layer it under sheer clothing to reveal the berry-toned colors. Or, you...

Box office tracking suggests Ocean’s 8 will steal a big opening weekend

Opening weekend numbers have always been important to the success of a summer blockbuster, but now we live in an age where the pre-release tracking can also have a huge impact on the way a film is received, so if the buzz on Ocean’s 8 is to be believed, then Warner Bros./Village Roadshow will be pretty pleased with the figures that Deadline is reporting.

Opening on June 8th in the Us, industry number crunchers have it projected as high as $45m for the weekend. It’s a number comparable with the last gender switch franchise reboot, Ghostbusters, which opened with $46 million ($128.3 million domestic total) in 2016. While that film was deemed a commercial flop, largely thanks to the $140 million budget, Ocean’s 8 is estimated to have cost in the region of $70 million, so this will be a big score for the studio.

Ocean's 8 Is on Track for a Great $45M Opening Weekend

Warner Bros. is getting ready to roll out its highly-anticipated female lead Ocean's 8, a spin-off of director Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven trilogy, and it seems this could be a sleeper hit of the summer. Early box office tracking has put Ocean's 8 between $30 million and $45 million for its opening weekend. While we'll have to wait about three weeks to see how it really fares in theaters, this high-profile spin-off has the advantage of debuting right in between some of this summer's biggest movies.

Ocean's 8 will be going up against Global Road's action-thriller Hotel Artemis and A24's thriller Hereditary, and while both of those movies will arrive in wide release, they likely won't get quite as wide a release as Ocean's 8, which will likely be somewhere between a 3,500 and 3,750 theater-count debut. The movie has an estimated production budget of $70 million, a modest figure that could mean

‘Ocean’s 8’ Plotting $30 Million Box Office Opening Weekend

‘Ocean’s 8’ Plotting $30 Million Box Office Opening Weekend
Ocean’s 8” is placing its bets on a safe opening weekend.

Early tracking shows the female-led heist film is eyeing a domestic debut of $30 million when it opens on June 8, though some estimates show it could earn as much as $36 million.

A three-day weekend total around $30 million would be significantly less than Sony’s all-female reboot of “Ghostbusters,” which launched in 2016 with a solid $46 million. The ultimately plagued movie tapered out at $128 million in North America and $229 million worldwide. With hefty production costs and marketing budgets, the sci-fi comedy — starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones — ultimately lost the studio around $50 million.

It’s worth noting that “Ocean’s 8’s” older target audience doesn’t always rush to theaters on opening weekend. Its success will likely rely on playability stemming heavily from reviews and word of mouth.

At the very least, “Ocean’s 8” had a smaller price tag than “Ghostbusters,

‘Ocean’s 8,’ One of This Summer’s Big Gambles, Plots to Steal $30 Million on Opening Weekend

After a May loaded with Marvel and Star Wars, June will see some different potential summer blockbusters storm theaters, aiming to give moviegoers a change of pace. Leading them is Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s “Ocean’s 8,” an all-female spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Trilogy” that is considered one of the riskier wide releases coming out this summer.

This is the second straight year Warner Bros turned to women to bring in big summer bucks. Last year, the studio had the movie of the summer, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman,” which grossed $412.5 million during its domestic run and became the flag-bearer in the push for more major films that prominently feature women in the cast and crew.

“Ocean’s 8,” a decidedly different movie, isn’t expected to make nearly as much — as early tracking has its opening weekend set at roughly $30 million against a production budget of $70 million.

Working With Rihanna Was a
Despite decades of working with award-winning actors, Sarah Paulson could not keep it together in the presence of Rihanna. The 43-year-old actress recently spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about her experience working on the star-studded Ocean's 8 and shared several anecdotes that basically revolved around her embarrassing herself in front of Rihanna.

"It was sort of a daily struggle to not embarrass myself," Sarah said, "because every time I looked at her I was like, 'Work, work, work . . . '" Sarah even began serenading Rihanna with new songs she would just write on the fly, which Rihanna would then graciously critique. "She thought my lyrics weren't so bad but my melody was terrible," Sarah said. After a while, Sandra Bullock had to step in and tell Sarah to dial down her obsession. Who can blame her though, really?

Cardi B Deletes Her Instagram and Sets Twitter to Private Amid Feud With Azealia Banks

In the midst of her feud with fellow female rapper Azealia Bank, Cardi B deleted her Instagram profile and set her Twitter account to private. Cardi's abrupt exit from social media came after her long-standing beef with Azealia came to a nasty head within the last 24 hours after Azealia called out the "I Like It" rapper during an interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. During her interview, the hosts asked Azealia to explain why she called Cardi an "illiterate untalented rat," and she said it's because she felt that Cardi was perpetuating negative stereotypes of black women by being a caricature. She also accused Cardi of getting away with things that black women would not be able to get away with. "Like if my grammar was that bad, I’d be cancelled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we’d be ragging on her," Azealia said. (Photo Credit: Getty Images
