  • Entertainment Reporter Drew Taylor From The Wrap Reviews This Summer's New Movies

    24 MAG 2024 · The Summer Box Office Has to Be Graded on a Curve Yet Again With no MCU movie to start off the season, this year's strike-addled blockbuster lineup will likely fall short of 2023 Excluding the COVID impact on 2020 and 2021, this year marks the first time since 2006 that the summer moviegoing season won't begin with a Marvel release during the first weekend of May. The lack of a superheroic kickoff to blockbuster season is a glaring symptom of a larger reality: The disruption caused by the 2023 Hollywood strikes is going to limit how high the summer box office can climb. Alongside Disney, which was forced to vacate its favorite MCU release slot, the strikes also pushed films like "Mission: Impossible 8" to 2025, with not much to take their place. It will take several major surprises - like 2023's "Barbie" and "Oppenheimer" - to match last year's $4 billion domestic total. Insiders at analytics firm Gower Street, while leaving open the potential for upside, project a box office total of $3.3 billion in North America this summer, putting it in the neighborhood of the $3.39 billion total recorded in 2022. From the get-go, because of the strikes any comparisons between this summer's box office and those of past years will immediately be marked with a huge asterisk."This summer is a one-off, and I think everyone in the industry knows that," Exhibitor Relations analyst Jeff Bock told The Wrap. "What I want to know is, how do these sequels play compared to last summer?" Bock is holding out some optimism that despite a slow start, there may be some unexpected over-performance later in the summer. Universal/87North's original action romcom "The Fall Guy" may become a modest box office success if moviegoers have enough Kenergy in them to see Ryan Gosling in another comedic role. But it likely won't bring theaters the $118 million opening or $358.9 million domestic run that "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" delivered in summer 2023. "We've seen that Imax and other premium (large) formats help make these franchise films feel like big events, and the fact that more PLF-supported films are coming out across the summer may help some of those films do better than some of the sequels we saw last year," he said. That premium support will come in July, when the season's biggest titles arrive. Universal/Illumination's "Despicable Me 4" could be the sole $1 billion-plus hit of the summer if it can top the $370 million domestic/$940 million global run of "Minions: The Rise of Gru" in 2022. Marvel Studios' "Deadpool & Wolverine," due out on July 26, also has an outside chance of joining "Joker" as the second R-rated film to hit $1 billion. Though simply topping the $786 million global total of "Deadpool 2" would be a win for Disney, which inherited Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman's heroes in 2019 from the 20th Century Fox merger. But the quantity of high-performing films is likely to be fewer. In 2023, 13 films grossed over $100 million at the domestic box office, including some surprises like Angel Studios' cultural phenomenon "Sound of Freedom." Among those movies, five grossed more than $250 million domestically: "Barbie," "Oppenheimer," "Guardians Vol. 3," "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" and "The Little Mermaid."

  • Actor Comedian Now Author Paul Scheer Releases Joyful Recollections Of Trauma

    24 MAG 2024 · From award-winning actor and comedian Paul Scheer, a candid and hilarious memoir-in-essays on coming to terms with childhood trauma and finding the joy in embracing your authentic self. Paul Scheer has entertained countless fans and podcast listeners with stories about the odd, wild, and absurd details of his life. Yet these tales have pointed to deeper, more difficult truths that the actor and comedian has kept to himself. Now, he is finally ready to share those truths for the first time-but, of course, with a healthy dose of humor.Blending the confident, affable voice that has won him a dedicated following with a refreshing level of candor, Joyful Recollections of Trauma chronicles Paul's often shocking, admittedly tumultuous childhood and how the experiences of his youth have reverberated throughout his life. In his comedy, Paul has always been unafraid to "go there," to play naïve, cringeworthy characters, imbuing them with disarming charm and humanity. That daring openness is on display in the pages of this memoir, but in true Paul fashion, it is also surprising, eye-opening, and side-splitting. In this madcap journey through the inner working of his mind and creative process, Paul Scheer demonstrates once again that the truth is often stranger-and funnier-than fiction. Joyful Recollections of Trauma offers a unique perspective on universal themes: growing up, working through a challenging childhood, staying true to yourself, and finding success, fulfillment, and happiness in often strange and difficult circumstances. Throughout, Paul shares both the hard-fought lessons and the laughter that can be found in the darkest parts of life,  and reminds us that what matters is not what you've been through but who you are becoming. If you loved recent memoirs by Molly Shannon, Maria Bamford, RuPaul, and Jennette McCurdy-or any book that moves you to both laughter and tears-Joyful Recollections of Trauma is the perfect read for you.

  • AGT Superstar Jackie Evancho Releases A New Wave Of Sound Solla And Behind My Eyes

    22 MAG 2024 · Evancho wrote all 6 songs and co-produced the EP with Smash Mouth’s founding member and songwriter Greg Camp. The first single off Solla, Behind My Eyes, was released in September and went to radio in February and currently remains at #22 on the Billboard AC Chart.  Says Jackie about the song, “Behind My Eyes,” "This is a song I wrote to almost exemplify the feeling of losing it. It’s a song that doesn’t exactly make sense lyrically. There are feelings of paranoia, euphoria, mania, etc. It’s a big jumble of many things at once, and often it is hard to understand and empathize with the one trying to explain this.” Jackie goes on, “I’m excited, as well as nervous about the release of this song. I know in the end I’m telling my truth and I can’t wait to share who I am with the world and my fans.”   Singer, concert artist, actress, and model, Jackie Evancho is a platinum-selling recording artist who first became a worldwide sensation at the age of 10 years old, with her stunning debut performance singing “O Mio Babbino Caro” on season 5 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent (AGT). A career that began with a little girl’s fascination with the film adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera has led Billboard to twice include Jackie on its list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21,” as well as Forbes Magazine naming Jackie to their list of “30 under 30,” in part due to the history she has made along the way  – the youngest solo platinum artist, earning the record away from Michael Jackson – the youngest top 5 debut artist ever in the U.K – the highest-ranking debut artist of 2010 – and a Guinness World Record as the youngest person to ever have a US Top 3 album.

That's why she advertised a room to rent in The Negro Motorist Green Book. Give folks a safe place to stay away from home. That's how Johnny ended up at her door. Now he's sweet on some young woman. Not that he told Zethray, but she knows. The dead like to talk, and she listens. If only her mother would tell the secret behind her shocking death. Instead, she stands silent, while that little girl with the bow in her hair runs wild.
