As massive as the dinosaurs that fill its titular park, Jurassic World has proved to be a giant success with moviegoers in its opening weekend. As reported by The Verge, The sequel to the Jurassic Park series has bested industry expectations by pulling in an unprecedented $511,8 million dollars in global ticket sales, placing it in the history books as the first film to garner more than half a billion in ticket sales on their opening weekend. Domestically, more than $200 million dollars were collected, putting the film on par with other big budget summer movies as The Avengers way back in 2012. And from those $300 million in international sales, approximately one third comes from China alone.
Dissection of revenue aside, Universal has found a success with this fourth foray into the world Micheal Crichton built. They even gone as far to state that their domestic box office haul is a conservative estimate. If this pans out as true, Jurassic World could easily best financial successes such as The Avengers films, showing that fans care less about gripes from paleontologists about dinosaur accuracy and more about Chris Pratt’s increasing allure as a leading man.
Pratt, who wowed comic book fans and movie audiences alike with Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie, can be expected to return to the land of dinosaurs in the future for the inevitable sequels he’s signed on for. Mikal Watts certainly feels like he is an emerging star.
Have you had the feeling lately that Western culture is losing its sense of humor? Ten top comedians would agree. Namely, Chris Rock, Zeca Oliveira, John Cleese, Russell Peters, Scott Capurro, Daniel Lawrence Whitney, Patton Oswalt, Jim Norton, Gilbert Gottfried, Lisa Lampanelli, and Dennis Miller, all of them coming out of the woodwork to support Jerry Seinfeld’s original comment on the subject.
At issue for the top professional clowns is political correctness: You literally cannot say anything without offending swaths of people, no matter what you say. You can’t even comment that people get offended without offending them. Odds are good that somebody in your audience was already disgruntled before you took the microphone.
This is actually a problem going further back than the modern PC movement, however. History books will tell you that that precursor of clowns, the Court Jester, was originally not just a clown to entertain the king, but the one person privileged to speak his mind freely and not get beheaded for the trouble. Is the king making a decision that everyone but him can see will lead to trouble down the line? Only the jester is permitted to say so. By couching his criticism in humor, he was permitted to do the wisest thing by acting the fool.
In the modern age, perhaps it’s time we let our Jesters do their thing – and quit getting so offended at jokes. On the other hand, monarchs are sometimes level-headed; whereas the great mobs of the Internet never, never are.
Caitlyn Jenner mania is running strong, and it seems that even more people are jumping onboard of the strange bandwagon. It was recently announced on E! that a man has decided to get a tattoo of Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair magazine. The news of the Caitlyn Jenner tattoo has become a trending topic, and it’s not without reason. Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair magazine cover was truly and inspirational moment. However, several people are still wondering why Caitlyn needed to look so dolled-up for her first appearance.
Bruce Jenner has always been struggling with his identity, and he has clearly felt like a woman his entire life says Marcio Alaor BMG. On April 24th, Bruce Jenner revealed that he was getting a sex change, and that news shocked the world. Nonetheless, most people did not expect to see Bruce Jenner on the cover of a magazine. Also, most people did not think that Bruce Jenner was going to pose like Marilyn Monroe, and I think that’s what has angered some people throughout the world.
Caitlyn Jenner could have just appeared in a dress, but instead, she needed to be a hot and sexy woman in lingerie. Either way, I’m happy for Caitlyn Jenner, but I do understand some people’s criticisms.
These days it’s pretty hard to imagine life without Kylie Jenner, not only has her relationship with Tyga become the most talked about relationship this year, but Kylie is making waves everyday on social media. Kylie keeps us entertained, curious and also gives us lots of style to inspire funky looks of our own. Initially Kylie was just another spoiled brat in the Kardashian home, but now we are seeing a more personal side of Kylie and most of her fans and followers and liking what they see.
We watched Kylie grow up on television, and now with just a few weeks left until her 18th birthday it seems that she is already living the life of an independent woman as my friend Claudio Loureiro Heads has observed
. Kylie’s sexy photos have gotten her some negative feedback but even more note worth is the fact that she owns her own home, and has multiple sources of income. Kylie is co author of a book written with her sister, while also being the face behind her own hair extension line. cosmetic line and possibly a career in the music business.
If it looks like Kylie has a lot going on fora 17 year old, it’s because Kylie has to support herself financially.

Fortunately Kylie didn’t disappoint because she seems to be doing just fine.
Alexei Beltyukov suggests that there has never been a doubt that Jennifer Lopez was sexy. Even in her days as a “Fly Girl” on “In Living Colour” she always seemed to be someone that oozed sexiness. Few people would have expected that she would one day being getting sued for her sex appeal, but this appears to be the case.
The song “Booty” may have been a thrilling hit in America with a sexy video to match, but a live performance in Morocco was too much.. It had been reported that the live show that aired on television was too sexy for the conservative Morocco television audience. She had performed in Morocco before, but this is the first time that she has been on television there. It is possible that this may be the last.
Lopez is getting ready to take her live show to Vegas next year, and this may be just the type of hype that she needs to sell tickets. Getting sued is never any fun, but the publicity that comes with being too sexy is always going to be good for entertainers.
Right now Lopez isn’t doing anything. She isn’t in any current movies. Her guest judge role on American Idol is over. No new album is being released right now. Her residency in Las Vegas doesn’t start until 2016. She needs this to keep her name hot until she starts a new project.
Caitlyn Jenner is one of the most famous celebrities in the world now. The transgender female, who was known as Bruce Jenner for her first 65 years, has captivated the public with her amazing transformation. For years, people knew Jenner as former Olympic Gold medalist, as well as a popular castmate on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Jenner is the stepfather of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian as well as the father of Kylie and Kendall Jenner and several others.
“So many people go through life and they’ve never had to deal with their own issues – no matter what those issues are,” Caitlyn said while promoting I Am Cait. “Ours happen to be about gender identity, but how many people go through life and waste an entire life because they never deal with themselves? To be who they are?”
Jenner recently surprised some viewers when she revealed her new identity. For others, who believe tolerance is a virtue, the revelation has come as welcome news. For years, transgenders have had little representation. Now, with a celebrity spokesperson at the helm, it’s likely their issue will receive plenty of coverage in coming months.
The Docu-Series will focus on life after the announcement. The first trailer was just released and shows Jenner on a road trip to discover her identity. She talks about how she had her makeup done professionally for the first time and what a difference it made. Expect to see a lot more of Caitlyn Jenner going forward.

What do you get when you have power-tools, a maximum-security prison, two empty beds, and a yellow sticky note saying ‘Have a nice day!’? The answer: 200 law enforcement officials holding their bloodhounds with one hand while simultaneously scratching their heads with the other.
This was the scene the morning of June 6 as officials were perplexed as to how two convicted murders were able to escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison in Dannemora, NY. Richard Matt and David Sweat, 48 and 34 respectively, were accounted for during night role just before bed on the 5th, yet their beds were empty the morning of the 6th. By looking at the holes cut for the escape, it is clear that power tools were used during the escape. Just how these convicted felons got a hold of these power tools remains to be seen.
Regardless, there is now a manhunt going on in upstate New York in an attempt to find these two men who made one of the most impressive prison escapes since Alcatraz. Adam Sender is glad to see that. Governor Andrew Cuomo labeled these two men as “dangerous individuals” and actually visited the prison to prove his concern and support in this matter.
An 8-year-old boy in Florida has been bullied for the last two years, which is so common an act of children, it usually isn’t headline news.
is making the media rounds, however. He grew out his blond hair to donate to children with cancer whom he’s never met. He endured disapproving stares from adults and worse, his fellow classmates calling him a “girl.” At his age, being compared to a girl is true torture. McPhilamy turned the other cheek (whipping his beyond shoulder-length, straight, blond hair in the process), displaying adult-level maturity. He finally cut his locks and donated them to Children with Hair Loss.
The idea to grow out and then donate his hair all started when he saw a commercial for St. Jude’s Research Hospital. A Google search with his mom by Amen Clinics lead to his discovery that such organizations collect hair to make wigs for children with cancer who lost their hair during treatment. He felt so bad for them, he made the decision to make a donation. His cut yielded four sections, each 10 inches long.
McPhilamy now sports a more traditional cut for boys.
Khloe Kardashian, has had more than a decent amount of drama to go around in her life recently. While her family drama is never ending, the drama in her marriage is what everyone is really interested in the most. Just over a year ago Khloe and her husband Lamar called it quits on their marriage and Khloe filled for divorce after drugs sent Lamar over the edge. For the first time the world saw Lamar at his worst, going in and out of rehab, making eerie videos while high and even disappearing for days at a time. It was obvious why Khloe wanted to go far away from Lamar.
However Lamar seems to be living a clean and sober life and has been doing all he can to get Khloe back says Zeca Oliveira. For the time being Khloe is holding off on rekindling their romance, but she also has not go forward with the divorce, in fact that judge insisted that if they don’t move forward soon the case will be thrown out. Apparently neither party has done anything to finalize the divorce and in fact have been keeping in touch secretly.
Now it’s being said that Khloe wants to be with Lamar again, Kand Kris Jenner also is rooting for them to work things out in their marriage. This isn’t a shock considering how much Kris adored Lamar from the start, but will Khloe and Lamar commit to working things out? It’s safe to say everyone is watching and waiting to find out.
