    LOS ANGELES, Apr 6: Shia LaBeouf’s “Man Down” has flopped in the UK during its limited theatrical debut after it reportedly only sold one ticket, raking in 7 pounds when it opened at a cinema in Burnley over the weekend. The movie revolves around a soldier searching for his estranged son and battling PTSD after his return from Afghanistan. Directed by Dito Montile, it’s also supported by the likes of Gary Oldman, Jai Courtney and Kate Mara, reported Ace Showbiz. The film premiered at 2016 Venice Film Festival before playing at the Toronto International Film Festival and heading to US...

    Earlier this week, Project Veritas' James O'Keefe appeared on Sean Hannity's radio show warned that he would release "hundreds of hours" of tape from inside the establishment media.  Well, O'Keefe has been true to his word and has released the first part of a multi-part series inside CNN. There are 119 hours of secretly recorded raw footage from inside CNN that was being released on Thursday.  Obviously, all of it was not completely uploaded, but will be able to be accessed here.  There are still 100 hours of footage yet to release, and O'Keefe is asking for help in investigating the...
  • Will Smith just suffered the worst debut opening of his moviemaking career

    12/19/2016 7:23:45 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 75 replies
    "Collateral Beauty" has already had a bit of a hammering from film critics and fans, and things have just gotten worse. According to Entertainment Weekly, the film has now given star Will Smith the worst wide debut of his career. Ouch. Despite featuring Smith and a host of other big names, including Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, and Kate Winslet, the movie opened to just $7 million in ticket sales this weekend. That puts it at fourth place in the US box office, well behind the top-ranking "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," which took an estimated $155 million in its...

    The first “Star Wars” spinoff, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” is in crisis, and the movie will have to go into expensive reshoots over the summer, sources exclusively confirmed to Page Six. The much-anticipated “Rogue One” is due for release on Dec. 16, but we’re told bosses at Disney are not fully satisfied with the first cut from director Gareth Edwards. One Hollywood source told us, “The execs at Disney are not happy with the movie, and ‘Rogue One’ will have to go back into four weeks of expensive reshoots in July.”

    Cruz struck a different tone when Snowden first went public with classified details about NSA snooping in 2013. "If it is the case that the federal government is seizing millions of personal records about law-abiding citizens, and if it is the case that there are minimal restrictions on accessing or reviewing those records, then I think Mr. Snowden has done a considerable public service by bringing it to light," he said at an event hosted by The Blaze in 2013. In his statement to The New York Times, the Texas senator pointed to additional remarks he made in 2013, saying...

    Apparently Donald Trump has reconsidered his stance that Ted Cruz is eligible to run for president after noticing that he’s kicking his butt in the Iowa polls, which is how the founders intended for us to solve such matters. Here’s el Trumpo back in September telling ABC News that ALL the lawyers said Cruz could run legally:

    Chris Evans has signed a three-year deal to replace Jeremy Clarkson as the presenter of Top Gear, the BBC says. The broadcaster decided not to renew Clarkson's contract in March after it emerged he attacked a producer on the programme at a hotel in North Yorkshire. Evans will lead an all new line-up, the BBC said.
  • Report: US cyberattack on North Korea was ineffective

    The Hill ^ | 5/29/15 | Mark Hensch
    An American cyberattack on North Korea half a decade ago was fruitless overall, sources say. The National Security Agency (NSA) led a mission in 2010 to damage North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, Reuters reported on Friday. Operatives tried using a variant of the Stuxnet computer virus deployed against Iran that same year, the news service said, with developers crafting a version that would activate once it reached Korean-language settings on targeted machines. Operatives hoped the virus would disable centrifuges for enriching uranium, much like it had when used against Iran, Reuters said, but the cyberattack stumbled when it encountered North...
  • Nate Silver: Polls are failing us

    Nate Silver fared terribly in Thursday's UK election: In his pre-election forecast, he gave 278 seats to Conservatives and 267 to Labour. Shortly after midnight, he was forecasting 272 seats for Conservatives and 271 for Labour. But when the sun rose in London on Friday, Conservatives had an expected 329 seats, against Labour's 233. The fault, Silver claimed, was with the polling: "It’s becoming increasingly clear that pre-election polls underestimated how well Conservatives would do and overestimated Labour’s result," the statistician guru wrote in the wee hours of the morning. (He also overestimated the Liberal Democrats' result by roughly 20...

    Name: Annie. Age: 11. Appearance: Headstrong, smartass, black. Hold on a minute. Annie's not black. She's a little blonde Swiss girl who lives in the mountains. That's Heidi, you idiot. Annie's the little red-headed girl who looks like Sideshow Bob. But this new version of Annie doesn't look anything like Sideshow Bob. That's because in this remake she is being played by Oscar-nominated actor Quvenzhané Wallis.

    As Congress hurtled toward a government shutdown in the fall of 2013, Rep. Paul Ryan looked around at fellow Republicans who were agitating to shutter national parks, federal agencies and Head Start programs. "This can't be the full measure of our party and our movement," Ryan writes of that moment in his new book, released Tuesday. "If it is, we're dead and the country is lost." Such moments of raw frustration pepper Ryan's "The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea," a book as much about his front-row seat as Republicans' favorite budget wonk as it is about his political future....

    Washington Post ^ | 6/11/14 | JULIEANN MCKELLOGG
    If there was enthusiasm for the release of Hillary Clinton’s highly anticipated memoir, it was missing Tuesday at one D.C. bookstore. No one was lining up outside. No one was fighting over the last copy (there still are copies left!). And few seemed interested in reading anything beyond online reviews and summaries. Our PostTV team and opinion columnist Alexandra Petri ventured to Kramerbooks in the heart of D.C.’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, where they found that even Clinton supporters were not interested in buying the former secretary of state’s “Hard Choices.” Luckily for Clinton, book sales seem to tell a different...

    Hillary Clinton is hitting the road—but not the campaign trail. The potential 2016 presidential candidate is lining up events promoting her memoir about her time as secretary of state. So far, only four cities have been announced and the events are being described as a “conversation” with Clinton. The book tour to discuss “Hard Choices” includes two stops in Canada – Toronto on June 16 and Edmonton on June 18 – and then one in Austin, Texas on June 20 and San Francisco, Calif. on June 25. The book comes out on June 10, and tickets range in price from...

    When Hillary Clinton last promoted a book, Harry Potter was in his fifth year at Hogwarts and the Kindle didn’t yet exist. That was 11 years ago. Clinton’s first memoir, “Living History,” was a blockbuster that generated headlines and attention for well over a month. In the next few weeks, with the help of mega-lawyer Robert Barnett, Clinton aides including Philippe Reines will figure out how to handle the media and tour for her upcoming memoir, “Hard Choices.” As the rollout of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s book “A Fighting Chance” continues, some Clinton allies have kept an eye on Twitter and...
