The Jason Momoa vehicle has become the highest China grosser in the DC Universe and surpassed the lifetime grosses of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Black Panther” in the Middle Kingdom. Mexico debuted with $1.4 million on Thursday on 3,517 screens while Russia and Brazil each took in $1.3 million.
Indonesia has taken in $2.2 million in two days and the U.K. generated $1.8 million in two days of previews. Taiwan’s two-day total is $1.4 million and the Philippines generated $1.1 million.

“Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series ‘Andi Mack,’ was arrested in Salt Lake City today,” a Disney Channel spokesperson said in a statement Friday. “Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of employed minors, we have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week.”
Westmoreland plays the grandfather on the live-action series. On Friday, according to reports, he was arrested in Utah — where the series films — after attempting to arrange a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old that he met through an online dating app. According to reports citing court documents, Westmoreland asked the minor to engage in oral sex and other sexual acts,
“My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein,” the Oscar winner and X-Men alum said in a statement on Friday. Filed on December 12 in Los Angeles Superior Court, the Jane Doe of the six-claim unspecified damages seeking action accuses Weinstein of repeatedly forcing himself upon her. The jury requesting complaint also alleges that in his promises of movie roles for Jane Doe, Weinstein boasted that he had an affair with Lawrence and implied that is why she won the Academy Award.
“I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him,” Lawrence asserted today of the real nature of her interaction with Weinstein. “This is yet another example of the predatory
Moonves was deeply and directly involved in the $9.5 million payout that CBS forked over to Eliza Dushku in January after the actor accused Bull lead Michael Weatherly of sexual harassment on the first season of the CBS drama, we’ve learned. Additionally, the confidential payment was sneaked into Bull’s production budget in an effort apparently motivated to avoid the sum popping up on the company’s books, sources say.
The confidential agreement was struck while CBS was engaging in ultimately unsuccessful talks of a potential merger with Viacom. The settlement and its machinations were not known to then-coo Joe Ianniello, who became acting CEO after Moonves resigned in September after a dozen
That’s compared to 117 streaming shows last year, an increase that stands in sharp contrast to the declines seen by broadcast (153 in 2017) and basic cable (175). FX was kind enough to include a number of charts with its report, one of which shows that new streaming shows accounted for 32 percent of all debuting programs — an eight percent increase from last year.
This development was recently parodied in a “Saturday Night Live” skit presented as an ad for Netflix. “In 2019 we’ll have even more programming to choose from,
The SAG member was known for roles in “Karate Kid IV” with Hillary Swank, Ron Howard’s film “Gung Ho” and the spinoff sitcom, and the TV movie “Hiroshima: Out of the Ashes” with Max Von Sydow.
Kageyama was an important activist for the Asian American community. He was a regular emcee in downtown Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo, and was praised for using his voice to advocate for Asian American representation in the entertainment industry.

In like for like markets, “Aquaman” is currently 65 percent ahead of the pace set by last year’s “Justice League,” which grossed $657.9 million worldwide. It is the top film of the weekend in 42 of the 43 markets it has been released in, including China, which now accounts for $189 million or 72 percent of the film’s total grosses.

Just hours before he appeared at the festival, the Migos rapper had posted a public apology to Cardi in an Instagram video.
During the December 15th show, Offset appeared with a bouquet of white roses with signage that read “Take Me Back, Cardi.” As he continued to profess his love to her, Cardi looked uncomfortable before the couple exchanged words privately.

It’s just a nightmare. A total nightmare. There have been a bunch of bad superhero movies, but this one transcends bad.
53. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”
A totally chaotic stir fry of nonsense that tells the story of how Wolverine got his claws. Features a version of Deadpool that has his mouth stapled shut, which should tell you all you need to know about it.
That five minutes where they tried to turn Jennifer Garner into an action star really didn’t work out well, huh.

Just a total mess, incoherent from the word “go.” Might have killed off

If the ruling by the Republican-appointed judge stands, it would remove coverage for pre-existing conditions and “essential health benefits” such as mental health, substance abuse, prescription medications, as well as infant, pediatric and maternal care. But the ruling still has to make its way through the court system before a final decision on the fate of the legislation is reached.
That’s hardly the biggest opening for an animated film this year, but it does rank as the best start for a cartoon in the month of December. Illumination’s “Sing” previously held that title, debuting with $35 million in 2016.
Another weekend release, Warner Bros.’ “The Mule,” snagged the No. 2 spot with $17 million. Clint Eastwood directed and stars in the R-rated crime drama about a nonagenarian who gets caught smuggling drugs for the cartel. “The Mule,” Eastwood’s first acting gig since 2012’s “Trouble With the Curve,” brought out a much older crowd. Moviegoers over the age of 35 accounted for 78% of audiences. In addition to Eastwood, “The Mule” cast includes Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Pena, and Dianne Wiest.
Not all newcomers were able to stick the landing. Universal’s
When compared to the openings for past animated films from producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller — Lord also co-wrote the script for “Spider-Verse” — this seems like a big step down. “The Lego Batman Movie,” for example, had an opening of $53 million in February 2017. But this if this opening holds tomorrow, “Spider-Verse” will just edge out the $35.2 million start of 2016 Illumination movie “Sing” for the best animated opening in December box office history
“Sing” ended up legging out all the way to a $270 million domestic run, and Sony is hoping for a similarly strong holiday season run for the $90 million “Spider-Verse.” Word of mouth has been overwhelmingly positive, as the film earned an A+ on CinemaScore and dazzled critics with a 97 percent Rotten Tomatoes score.
The question, however, for this particular post is not whether you should go see this crazy thing, but whether you need to stick around after the movie is over for some kind of bonus post-credits scene. Bonus scenes after the credits have been a staple of the McU since the beginning, but not so for big-screen “Spider-Man” movies — which have often eschewed the practice.
But at this point the post-credits scene concept is so ubiquitous in comic book movies that even DC is doing it after thumbing its nose at Marvel over this for so long. And Sony even got in on the post-credits scene fun with its recent standalone “Venom” movie.
For the Matt Damon-hosted Christmas episode of Saturday Night Live, Cyrus returned to Studio 8H on December 15th for her fourth appearance as musical guest on the show, performing a dramatic rendition of “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” with Ronson. While Ronson plucked the acoustic guitar,
