Box Office: ‘Transformers 5’ Stumbles With $8.1 Million Thursday

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transformers: The Last Knight” is looking very creaky as it lumbers towards its opening weekend.

The fifth film in the robots series picked up $8.1 million on Thursday, bringing its domestic gross to $23.7 million after two days of release. At this pace, “Transformers: The Last Knight” will just top $60 million in the the first five days of its release. That’s a dramatic slide from the $100 million that the most recent installment, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” racked up over its first three days of release when it hit theaters in 2014.

Now that we have had Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, Bill Maher wants to set aside this Sunday to celebrate people who are neither with a new holiday that he’d like to call “I Didn’t Reproduce Day.” The “Real Time” comedian made it perfectly clear during Friday night’s show that he has nothing against having children because, after all, they are the “leaders of tomorrow.” But he thinks it’s time to celebrate single people with a holiday of their own. “We spent a lifetime being the cool aunts and uncles but while we celebrate everybody else nobody celebrates us, »

'The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin': Film Review | Provincetown 2017

5 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The key paradox to emerge from Jennifer M. Kroot's The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin is that the counterculture-era Dickens of San Francisco's Lgbt community was the son of an unapologetic white supremacist, whose connections helped him land his first TV writing gig, working for arch conservative Jesse Helms, of all people. Few readers devouring Maupin's cherished Tales of the City books can have guessed that the creator of Anna Madrigal, the enigmatic, weed-smoking trans landlady of 28 Barbary Lane, was in fact the great-great-grandson of a Confederate general who became a congressman in order to defend his slave-owner rights.

Stephen Colbert Appears on Russian TV, Jokes About Presidential Run

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert made an appearance on Russian TV, where he appeared to jokingly mull a presidential run.

In a video released Friday, Colbert appeared on “Evening Urgant,” a late-night style talk show that airs on Russia’s Channel 1. The back and forth between Colbert and host Ivan Urgant took place partly in Russian, partly in English.

In the interview, Colbert and Urgant played a Russian roulette-style drinking game with multiple vodka shots.

Lifting a glass to the studio audience upon taking his first shot, Colbert said, “To the beautiful and friendly Russian people, I have no idea why no members of the Trump administration can remember meeting you.” Colbert then took a shot and ate a pickle.

After Urgant took a shot, Colbert asked, “By the way, can I announce something?” He then continued, “I’m here in Russia … I am here to announce that I am considering a run for president in 2020, and I thought »

CNN Resorts to Sketching White House Press Briefings, Draws Derision

9 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In response to the White House press team’s troubling habit of refusing to do on-camera press briefings, CNN has found a workaround that also functions as a dry critique: It sent in a courtroom sketch artist. The images Friday provided a much-needed visual element for CNN, and also highlight the silliness of Trump Administration officials refusing to be seen speaking for the chief executive. (Accountability is important, given the president’s propensity for lying, which is meticulously documented here.) Asked this week why briefings are being held off-camera, Trump adviser Steve Bannon explained, “Sean got fat,” referring to embattled press secretary Sean Spicer. »
