Box Office: ‘Hitman’s Bodyguard,’ ‘Logan Lucky’ to Open on Another Drowsy Weekend

Two action-packed, star-studded films hit multiplexes this weekend, but will anyone notice? We’re heading for another sleepy weekend at the domestic box office, as Lionsgate’s “Hitman’s Bodyguard” and Bleecker Street/Fingerprint’s “Logan Lucky” seem unlikely to boost an extremely slow summer — more than 12% behind the same point in the season last year. That said,... Read more ».....»»

I’m Phoebe on there,” the 37-year-old Girls Trip star told host Stephen Colbert about the spoof. “I’m a white woman on paper; I’ve been a white woman for the last five, ten years now.” “What do you mean ‘white on paper?’” Colbert asked. “Like seven years ago, the census had come around, right? The census came and they showed up to my house, and they asked me what my nationality was, ’cause they was counting to see how many black people are in the neighborhood. I was like, ‘What do you mean? I’m American.’ And he was like, ‘No, what’s your race?’ I was like, ‘Oh! So, we’re doing that today? We’re bringing racism in my front door on this day? What are you, colorblind?’ And he said, ‘Yes,’” Tiffany joked. “I was like, ‘Ooh! This is my chance.’ I had like a That’s So Raven moment; I went into my brain and I was like, ‘Girl, this is your chance. What do you mean this is my chance? Obama said it’s time for change; you could be whatever you want to be today.’ And I was like, ‘You’re right! I can be whatever I want to be.’ And I looked at him and said, ‘I’m car-casian.’ Because I got a car and I know a lot of Asians, so I just put that together. I told him was ‘car-casian’ and he said OK. He checked the white box and it has been fantastic. Oh, my goodness.” Don’t forget to check out Tiffany in her newest comedy special She Ready: From Hood To Hollywood premiering on Showtime on Friday (August 18)!

Ever Looked Into Trump Protests Online? The Justice Department Is Trying To Get Your Name & Address

That or Republicans come to their senses and reclaim their principles to kick out Donald Trump. OK, probably just the first one. Because the longer he stays in office, the longer all of us opposed to the POTUS -- that is, roughly 61% of the population at this point -- are in danger of ending up on Big Brother's bad side. Related: Trump's Endorsement Of Confederacy-Loving White Nationalists Just Lost Him America's Unions! The Justice Department under Trump lackey Jeff Sessions is requesting via search warrant detailed information on approximately 1.3 million visitors to a Trump protest organization website. In a blog post explaining their decision to fight back, wed hosting provider Dreamhost contends this request is unconstitutional: "That information could be used to identify any individuals who used this site to exercise and express political speech protected under the Constitution's First Amendment. That should be enough to set alarm bells off in anyone's mind." What possible cause could they have for getting the identities and other info of site visitors? The warrant refers to riots on Inauguration Day -- riots for which a couple hundred people have already been charged with felonies. In a legal argument, Dreamhost's general counsel, Chris Ghazarian, wrote: "In essence, the Search Warrant not only aims to identify the political dissidents of the current administration, but attempts to identify and understand what content each of these dissidents viewed on the website." Yeah. Identifying dissidents. That's some dictator shit right there. Related: See The Shocked Reactions Of Celebs, Politicians, & More To Trump's Neo-Nazi Defense! Here in America we believe in freedom of speech, and that means freedom to dissent. And to say things like, the President of the United States is a racist crook who takes money from children's charities. What exactly did the DOJ request? Apparently the warrant includes "names, addresses, telephone numbers and other identifiers, e-mail addresses, business information, the length of service (including start date), means and source of payment for services (including any credit card or bank account number), and information about any domain name registration." Because the trustworthy Trump administration is definitely not going to do anything inappropriate with that info, right? Dreamhost will present their challenge to the request in Washington, D.C. on Friday. [Image via C-SPAN/MGM.].....»»
