Happy Friday, Mustangs. Here are my picks for the top moments in the entertainment world for the week:
1. Disney’s “Cinderella” came out this past weekend—a live action remake of the classic fairytale we all grew up loving—and, of course, took the number one spot in the box office. Every little girl in the world must be begging her parents to take her to see it, if not for Cinderella herself then for the animated short before the film, “Frozen Fever.” I swear Anna and Elsa are taking over the world.
Anyway, the film came out with $70 million in the opening weekend, followed by “Run All Night,” the new action flick starring Liam Neeson, earning only $11 million. Sorry guys, you just can’t compete with princesses.
2. More from Disney because they just don’t stop, the production of “Toy Story 4” has been announced and will be released in 2017. Really, another one? Sometimes you have to know when to stop and let a good ending be a good ending.
However, I was less peeved when I heard that they ARE letting a good ending be a good ending. Supposedly, this fourth movie in the series will have nothing to do with the original trilogy and won’t even focus on the relationships between the toys and the kids. “Toy Story 4” will instead be a love story or a romantic comedy of sorts. I’m not so sure how I feel about it, but we’ll see how it goes.
3. If anyone out there is a big fan of E!’s TV show “Fashion Police,” then I have bad news for you because the show is going on hiatus.
It hasn’t had the easiest time these past few months, as the show’s main host and icon Joan Rivers suddenly passed away. Since then, co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin have also publicly announced that they are leaving the show.
The network is cutting the remainder of the shows left in the spring and has said that “Fashion Police” will return at some point in the fall.
4. Is Madonna losing her touch?
The legendary singer’s new album “Rebel Heart” was beat out on the Billboard 200 by the debut of the soundtrack to Fox’s hit TV series “Empire.” I, for one, had no clue that the show was so popular, let alone the music from it, but it must be in order to sell more copies than THE Madonna.
5. If you’re anything like me, you must be devastated that TLC cancelled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” but don’t worry because Mama June might be making her television comeback.
The 35-year-old has been seen working out with Natasha Kufa, a celebrity trainer, and reportedly has her sights set on becoming a contestant on “The Biggest Loser.”
Maybe she’s really doing this for her health after a life of “sketti” eating and “go go juice” drinking, or maybe she’s just doing this for the money. Either way, best of luck to you, Mama June. You keep doing you.
