finding-dory-box-office-records

Move over Shrek, Ellen DeGeneres and her animated alter ego Dory are now top dog. Or should I say fish. With this weekend’s box office receipts tabulated, Finding Dory now stands with a $445.5 million domestic haul. It passes Shrek 2 and it’s $441.2 total to become the highest-grossing domestic animated movie of all time.

Overall, the Finding Nemo sequel is poised to surpassThe Dark Knight Rises ($448.1 million) to crack the Top 10 domestic blockbuster list. Internationally, Finding Dory boasts a $721.7 million global total. Expect that total to rise as the film hasn’t even opened yet in key markets including U.K., Italy, and Germany.

Have you watched Finding Dory yet? Does it deserved the animated crown? Sound off below.

Had this been released a month ago, I have no doubt it’d be vying “One Dance” and “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Drake and Justin Timberlake respectively, for 2016 “Song of the Summer” honors. With that being said, never underestimate the power of Justin Bieber. His late entry could just leave them all in the dust when Billboard crowns the winner in September.

The 22-year-old Canadian singer teams up with Major Lazer and MØ for “Cold Water.” As you’d expect from Major Lazer, it’s a summery offering, mixing both dancehall and club beats. It’s the first taste off Diplo’s electronic music band’s forthcoming new album, Music Is the Weapon. Give it a listen below.

Alex Pettyfer Revisits Magic Mike Glory Days

In: Donovan, Movies, Totally GAY!

Poor Alex Pettyfer. Since his Magic Mike days, he’s been relatively missing in action. He’s only worked on a couple of films since, and one of them was the disastrous Endless Love remake. Guess, he probably shouldn’t have pissed off Channing Tatum.

While working on his new app, HYPIT at the office, his coworkers played Ginuwine’s ultimate stripper anthem, “Pony.” Naturally, the 26-year-old actor couldn’t resist recreating some dance moves from the movie.

“When you’re working late at night and your team decide to bring up the past!!! ??? #magicmike #whatwouldyouhype #imissthosedays #littlerusty,” Alex captioned his Instagram vid.

Speaking of Instagram, Pettyfer has been quite active lately sharing numerous shirtless pics, including the one above. Check a few out below, along with his Magic Mike throwback.

tinashe-kda-just-say

Tinashe is on fire these days. On the heels of releasing her killer new track, “Superlove,” the 23-year-old singer debuts another track. This time around, she teams up with KDA for a bumpin’ house anthem called “Just Say.” It’s the follow up to the London-based DJ’s “Turn the Music Louder (Rumble)” featuring Tinie Tempah and Katy B, released last year. His new slinky new collabo is another winner.

Speaking of collaborations, Tinashe worked with Calvin Harris on “Dollar Signs” back in 2014. Rumor has it that they’re hooking up again, but this time on the personal front. According to Page Six, the two are casually dating. They’ve gone on a few dates and keeping it relatively on the down low. Just this past weekend, the duo were spotted having dinner at Nobu in Malibu, Calif.

Good for Tinashe. Calvin is one hot little Scottie. Word to the wise though. If he produces her next album, just make sure she doesn’t cheat on him. Just ask Rita Ora how that feels. Remember when he took back all his songs when they broke up? Hell hath no fury like Harris scorned 😉

Check out Tinashe’s new track below.

kanye-west-taylor-swift-feud

Unless you’ve been off the grid for the past 24 hours, you’ve no doubt heard that the feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift went nuclear. And that’s putting it mildly.

The entire brouhaha started when Kim Kardashian uploaded a series of videos to Snapchat, seemingly proving Swift was aware of the controversial “Famous” lyrics before the track surfaced online.

Naturally, the fallout from this has been huge, since the “Blank Space” singer has previously stated publicly she wasn’t aware of the song lyrics. Taylor took to Instagram to share her thoughts. “That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet,” she wrote before talking further about ‘character assassination.’

With the leak, there is speculation Taylor could take Kanye to court over this. If Taylor truly didn’t know she was being recorded, it would violate California’s “two-party consent” law which makes it a felony to record or eavesdrop on any confidential communication — namely, a phone call — without the consent of all those involved.

According to People, a source claims Taylor knew about the video and threatened Kanye back in February with criminal prosecution for recording their conversation without her knowledge, and demanded he destroy any video. It’ll be interesting to see how all this plays out in the media in the coming weeks and on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Check out all the video clips below and Taylor’s Instagram statement.

chris-hemsworth-star-trek-4

Chris Hemsworth made a brief appearance in the first installment of the Star Trek reboot in 2009. The hunky Aussie played George Kirk, the father of Captain James Kirk. His character perished while saving his wife, son and passengers of USS Kelvin from a Narada attack. According to a report, Hemsworth is set to return for the fourth movie.

One could easily assume that he’ll appear only in flashbacks, since his character is dead. However, director JJ Abrams reveals the fourth movie will bring together Pine and Hemsworth. Is some sort of time travel happening in the next film? Fingers crossed so. I’d love to see a Chris sandwich on the big screen. Wouldn’t you?

How do you think producers will bring back Hemsworth? Share your thoughts below.

Son Comes Out To Father In Moving Phone Commercial

Like Italy, the Philippines is a country made up mostly of people with strict Roman Catholic views. It’s nice to see such a progressive commercial from one of the nation’s major corporations.

The ad features a young man nervous about accepting a Facebook friend request from his father. Reason being, he hasn’t come out to his family. I can totally relate to this, as it also took forever for myself to approve my parents on my timeline. Check out the moving advert below.

hailee-steinfeld-edge-of-seventeen

Just how awkward you ask? Well, at one point in the trailer, Hailee Steinfeld makes Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite look like a young Ricky Martin. Obviously, I’m exaggerating, but you get the gist.

Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

It’s great to see Steinfeld continuing with her acting career, even though she’s dabbling with music. Speaking of which, you should check out the 19-year-old’s collaboration with Zedd, “Starving.” It’s so good. Check out the red band trailer for “Edge Of Seventeen” below.
