Universal and Amblin's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stomped into North American theaters Thursday night, earning a promising $15.3 million in previews. As expected, that's behind the $18.5 million preview gross for Jurassic World in summer 2015, but still a strong number on its own. The preview number was on par with last summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming ($15.4 million), and ahead of the more recent Solo: A Star Wars Story ($14.1 million).
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom should easily fend off holdover Incredibles 2 and win the weekend race with a domestic opening in the $130 million-$140 million range....
The network announced Friday it’s renewed its first-ever anthology series, “The Terror,” for a second season. This installment hails from Scott (who executive produced the first season) and co-creators Alexander Woo (“True Blood”) and Max Borenstein.
According to the official logline, the next iteration of the anthology series will be set during World War II and center on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.
“I’m deeply honored to be telling a story set in this extraordinary period,” said Woo. “We hope to convey the abject terror of the historical experience in
ABC has given a series order to “The Conners,” a spinoff starring original cast members John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman. Not part of the new series will be Roseanne Barr, who played the matriarch on the long running and recently revived — and more recently canceled — multi-camera comedy. Barr will, according to ABC, have no financial or creative involvement in the spinoff.
“The Conners” is slated to debut this fall and take over the 8 p.m. Tuesday time period that “Roseanne” had been slated to occupy until the show was abruptly canceled last month in response to a racist statement made on Twitter by Barr. Additional cast members and a premiere date will be announced at a later date.
Gilbert, Tom Werner, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen, and Tony Hernandez will serve as executive producers on the spinoff,
The film will be an American take on Fred Cavayé‘s French crime drama Point Blank (A bout portant).
The first and last time this happened was in 2007 when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opened with $114.7 million following Shrek the Third's $121.6 million opening the weekend prior. In fact, the rarity of what will take place this weekend doesn't end there as only eight times following a $100+ million performance at the weekend box office has a film not repeated at #1 the following weekend. Even more rare, two films have never brought in more than $100 million over the same weekend.
Should Incredibles 2 drop 45.26% or less this weekend we'll have yet another piece of history to discuss come Sunday morning.

The sequel portrays the kids, members of the Losers’ Club, who were tormented by Pennywise, as adults. James McAvoy plays Bill, Bill Hader is Richie, Jessica Chastain is Beverly, James Ransone is Eddie, Andy Bean is Stanley, Jay Ryan is Ben, and Isaiah Mustafa is Mike. Bill Skarsgard returns as Pennywise.
Dolan will be playing the role of Adrian Mellon. In the Stephen King novel, Mellon was a gay man living in Derry who was attacked by bullies which led to his demise at the hands of Pennywise. Beinbrink will play Tom Rogan who, the book and the 90s miniseries, was Beverly’s abusive lover.
Barbara Muschietti, Roy Lee and Dan Lin return as producers. The screenplay is written by Gary Dauberman.

“There’s a very important character from the ‘Breaking Bad’ era that we’re going to meet this year,” Gilligan said during his show’s Masterclass panel, which was a part of the AMC Summit Wednesday in New York City.
He did not specify which character — but Gilligan believes fans will be pretty pleased overall when the AMC dramedy returns in early August.
“Season 4 is so good,” he said. “It gets darker, it gets richer. It’s still got funny in it, but on the Venn diagram of ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul,’ the overlap in the center is getting bigger and bigger.”

In a letter read on-air June 8 by Outnumbered host Sandra Smith, Krauthammer said he had undergone surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen and that it “caused a cascade of secondary complications” for which he has been hospitalized since. Recent tests have revealed that the cancer had returned.
He had been paralyzed since a diving-board accident in the early 1970s that confined him to a wheelchair.
“I don’t like when they make a big thing about it,” Krauthammer said in a 1984 Washington Post interview.

California-based Sinemia unveiled Friday family plans for two, three, four, five, and six people. It touted the new system as making it easier than ever for moviegoing families and friends to select seats together in advance.
“Our Sinemia for Two plans have been very popular among our subscribers, which shows that moviegoers love to go to the movies with their family and friends,” said Sinemia founder and CEO Rifat Oguz. “Expanding this into broader Family Plans is the next logical step for us.

Universal is projecting an opening weekend of $130-140 million, but multiple analysts who spoke with TheWrap said that competition from “Incredibles 2” could weigh down those numbers, with an opening of $120-130 million more likely.

So far, the sequel has grossed $450.1 million worldwide, with markets including China, Germany, India, Malaysia, Russia, Spain and South Korea.
