Beauty and the Beast

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast like anywhere else is now the highest-grossing film in the Philippines. It surpasses Captain America: Civil War. TIhe movie, starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Luke Evans, had already reached cumulative gross earnings of P667.46 million at the box office and almost $1 Billion in the world. The question is, how much Emma Watson can earn from that?

$1 Billion Mark

The British actress looks set to overtake Jennifer Lawrence as she continues to take a portion of the Disney film’s profits. Less than a month since its theatrical release, Bill Condon’s live-action remake of the Disney classic continues to perform well and has now become 2017’s first film to reach the milestone. Read this:

29th Movie to Hit Top Gross Sales

Disney’s live-action remake is the 29th film to officially hit that number at the worldwide box office, helping it to maintain its position as the highest grossing film of the year so far. It is also the highest grossing live-action musical of all time. More here:

5 Movies by Disney

While the monetary milestone may seem par for the course for Disney, which released five of the top 10 highest-grossing films of 2016 (and four that made more than $1 billion worldwide), it is particularly impressive for Beauty and the Beast when compared to other live-action movie musicals. The film was clearly meant for more than this provincial life as it effectively dunked on the competition by earning $600 million more than its closest competitor, Grease. Sure, La La Land may have all those Oscars (except, you know, Best Picture), but Beauty and the Beast has more than double its $438 million global box office. Read more:

Worst Nightmare

With Beauty and the Beast in the to[ spot, lead star, Emma Watson can earn as much as $15 million dollars. That also places Captain America: Civil War at number two. The 3 other films in the top 5 are also Disney movies namely; Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and The Avengers. The remake is about Belle, who finds herself inside an enchanted castle her father rescued her from the Beast. She ends up befriending falling in love with the Beast.

Celebrity Interviewer Lost it with how Nicole Richie Reacts after High Five Blow

Nicole Richie

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Caught by surprise after the celebrity interviewer accidentally hit Nicole Richie’s face sending her sunglasses up into the air, she did retain her composure. It is very hard to fake it obviously and she did very well. This made the interviewer felt so uneasy with what she has done. It’s not intentional so, it should not be a big deal.

[VIDEO]: Nicole Richie gets smacked in the face during the interview. Surely it’s every celebrity interviewer’s worst nightmare.

High Five

Nicole Richie got more than an on-air promotion for her new NBC show “Great News” in a recent “Talk Stoop” interview that went awry when the host accidentally slapped her square in the face. The awkward moment came as host Cat Greenleaf was attempting to give her guest a celebratory high-five when Ritchie said the best news she heard recently was a rainy weather forecast in drought-stricken Los Angeles: Read this:

Awkward Slap

Sometimes interviews don’t go as planned. And sometimes high fives turn into awkward misses. For Nicole Richie, both of those things (and more) unfortunately came true over the weekend when she filmed an interview as part of Talk Stoop With Cat Greenleaf. It’s not even 30 seconds into the clip before things go awry as a fierce high five from Greenleaf mistakenly lands on Richie’s face. Indeed, the sheer force of the high five knocks the sunglasses across the stoop. Ouch. More here:

Good Sport

Luckily for her, Richie was “beyond a good sport.” “She was so gracious and kept things moving,” Greenleaf said. “I caused her bodily harm! And she kept on rolling. She was a true pro.” Read more:

Worst Nightmare

It is indeed the celebrity interviewer’s worst nightmare.  big chance with a super-famous star sitting across, and blow it all off with a friendly high five that went astray. The Simple Life reality star told host Cat Greenleaf that she’s excited that her usually dry home city of Los Angeles has a rare rainy forecast. That’s when Greenleaf raises her hand for the high five – and slaps Richie right in the face.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer Shows Special Moments Borrowed from Comics

Thor: Ragnarok

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Thor: Ragnarok is not about the ruin of Asgard.  Certainly not Hulk’s rampage or even Chris Hemsworth’s Thor sex appeal. A lot of emphases is given to Mjolnir, Thor’s enchanted hammer. Thor is basically lost without his weapon. Good thing, the comics have all the actions it needed.

Youtube video by; Emergency Awesome
[VIDEO]: Thor Ragnarok Trailer 4K Breakdown and Comics Easter Eggs. Marvel Planet Hulk, Thor New Hammer Avengers Infinity War, Thanos Infinity Gauntlet, and Thor Ragnarok Planet Hulk Celestials Easter Egg.

Hammer Holding Time

Following on from the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the third instalment of the superhero franchise sees the hammer-wielding superhero imprisoned on the far side of the universe without his trusty weapon. There he must engage in a deadly gladiatorial contest against old ally the Incredible Hulk. Can he survive and get back to his homeworld of Asgard before it is destroyed?:

The Villain

It’s well-known among fans and even more casual filmgoers that Marvel doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to its movie villains. Loki is still far and away the greatest big bad the studio has put on the silver screen in a pantheon that is fairly underwhelming. Hiddleston is a fantastic actor, sure, but characters like Ant-Man’sYellowjacket and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Ronan the Accuser are utterly forgettable. They existed in their movies solely to get the heroes motivated. Meanwhile, Thanos is still too much of a distant threat to count. How’s this?:

Thor Trailer

The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, hitting Nov. 3, is bent on infusing levity into the Asgardian franchise. Fresh off a comedic turn in Ghostbusters, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor takes the goth-looking villain Hela (Cate Blanchett) destroying his trusty hammer, Mjolnir, in stride. Even as Tessa Thompson’s warrior Valkyrie captures him and forces him into a gladiatorial battle with the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor greets the news with a hearty cheer. Read this:

Easy Fix

It probably helps that it’s relatively easy to fix Thor’s magic hammer. Especially if Thor can do it just by holding it. Its quick fix is the savior or else Thor and his race will all die. Something to bear in mind watching Thor: Ragnarok this November. Marvel’s Thunder God could start adapting the handy fix on Thor’s weapon should this proves successful.

This is How Janet Jackson Gauges Single Blessedness after Split with Al Mana

Janet Jackson

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Many can say that it’s a pity that Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana have broken up three months after the birth of their son – but for Jackson, it’s a matter of finding herself again. According to news sources, their separation is amicable. Janet continues to live in London with their son Eissa, who was born only last January.

Youtube video by; Empressive
[VIDEO]: Janet Jackson unfortunately, announced that she might be divorcing her billionaire husband of five years (Qatari Wissam Al Mana)..only months after giving birth to her son Eissa.

Doomed from the Start?

Sources say a clash of cultures has driven Janet and Wissam apart, made worse since the birth of baby Eissa, over whose upbringing and day-to-day care they disagree. Read more:


Though they’ll be separated, the two have decided to co-parent their first-born, Eissa Al Mana, who was born on January 3. “They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.” However, Page Six reported that the split may have been due to Al-Mana’s ‘controlling’ behavior during Janet’s pregnancy. Here’s more:

More Hints

It seems as though the split might have something to do with the latest allegations of elder abuse against Trent Lamar Jackson. Al Mana’s lack of concern over the allegations was the last straw. “That’s when Janet made her decision that there was no turning back,” a source said. “She was worried about her mother—and Wissam showed little to no concern.” Read through:

Amicable Split

Jackson who was married twice before Al Mana – once to James DeBarge from 1984 to 1985 and second time to Rene Elizondo from 1991 to 2000 now accepts that she’s not for marriage. Despite making compromises, her third marriage still did not work and it’s enough for her to say that she’s one of the women who probably can be happier as a single mother.

Hongkong Belongs to China
