"Avatar" is on a Roll with Two Straight Weekends of Box Office Success!

In an impressive display of dominance, “Avatar: The Way of Water” soared to the summit of the box office in its second weekend. As studios estimated Sunday, it brought a robust $56 million domestically – proving that this sequel may have staying power until 2023 and reach the high expectations fans had for its release.

In its first ten days on the big screen, James Cameron’s revival of 20th Century Studios raked in a whopping $253.7 million domestically – an impressive feat considering 2009′s original “Avatar” only banked $212.7 million in that same span! If this momentum continues, it is entirely possible that this new Avatar could overtake the old and lay claim to being the highest-grossing film of all time.

Its second-weekend decline from $134 million was not too steep considering its blockbuster opening weekend numbers. Although Cameron’s films, such as the “Avatar” original and “Titanic,” often experience long-term success in theaters, their sequels tend to open big but drop off quickly. This makes it difficult to predict how much money they will eventually make.

Worldwide, “The Way of Water” has already generated more than $855 million and is a surefire hit to surpass the billion-dollar mark. This puts it as the third highest-grossing film released this year behind only “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Jurassic World Dominion” — a feat that speaks volumes about its success! 

With plenty of holiday time remaining, this movie still has ample opportunity to impact! As the film moves forward, it remains smooth sailing since there is no competition until Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” premieres in February. Universal’s animated Shrek spinoff, “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,” featuring Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek as voices, opened weak at a distant second with only $11.35 million during its debut weekend. 

To the dismay of moviegoers, “Babylon,” Damian Chazelle’s latest film featuring Brad Pitt and Margo Robbie, was a box office flop. Sony’s biopic about the legendary Whitney Houston, “Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” captured third place in box office sales with an impressive $5.3 million! Despite its nationwide release at the weekend, it only made $3.5 million in sales to finish fourth place in the rankings.

David O. Russell’s “Amsterdam” opened to a disappointing $6.5 million in October, causing industry jitters that people may no longer be interested in prestige films with large-scale production values and famous stars helmed by renowned directors such as this one set during the same period.

Fears were affirmed as “Babylon” opened to a lower gross than its predecessor “Amsterdam.” It merely earned more than half of the opening box office results. With its upcoming theatrical and streaming releases, plus potential awards recognition, “Babylon” could rise above the dreaded bomb status.

Pamela Anderson has Recently come Forward to Reveal that Tim Allen, Star of the Show 'Home Improvement,' Exposed Himself to her on Set

Pamela Anderson, best known for her iconic roles in Baywatch and Home Improvement, is set to release a memoir entitled Love, Pamela. In this book, she makes a shocking allegation against Tim Allen — that while they were filming the pilot of Home Improvement in 1991, he exposed himself to her.

Anderson was 23 when she joined the cast of Home Improvement as Lisa “the Tool Girl” opposite Taylor and was just beginning her acting career after being featured in Playboy and other magazines as a model. According to Anderson’s account of the incident in her book, she walked out of her dressing room to find Allen standing there wearing only a robe. She stated: “He opened his robe and flashed me quickly – completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”

When contacted about Anderson’s allegations, Allen stated: “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.” The show ran for eight successful seasons from 1991-1999 before ending with Anderson leaving after season two to focus on Baywatch, which went on to become a syndicated hit.

Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s stolen sex tape, released without their knowledge in 1996, created one of the most notorious scandals of that decade. As her career was still fledgling at the time, this incident had a dramatic effect on Anderson, not only professionally but personally as well. In Anderson’s memoir – which she wrote herself – she uses poetry and narrative to express how this scandal shattered lives.

Anderson described her book as a “celebration of imperfections” that recounts the story of “just one girl’s messy life.” She continued, “These are my feelings about my life – no ‘woe is me,’ though sometimes they are tough. I was able to get through it all by finding love in grace and dignity along with humor, acceptance, and forgiveness.”

A documentary based on Anderson’s life entitled Pamela: A Love Story will also debut on Netflix at the same time as the release of Anderson’s memoir. It will be interesting to see what else is revealed within Anderson’s story when both projects are released at the end of January 2023.

Jeremy Renner’s Harrowing 911 Call: ‘He's been Catastrophically Injured and is Experiencing Immense Agony’

On New Year’s Day, Hollywood actor Jeremy Renner was run over by a snowplow at his Reno-area property. The incident has sent shock waves through fans, with many expressing concern and wishing him well in his recovery. On Tuesday, TMZ released the horrifying 911 call from the accident, revealing just how serious Runner’s injuries were.

The neighbor had called for help, informing the dispatcher that Renner had been “crushed” and was “in a lot of pain.” They added that the right side of his chest and upper torso were particularly affected, as well as a head wound. Furthermore, they said he was “short of breath” and “slowly drifting off” while waiting for medics to arrive. The individual also noted that they had covered Renner with blankets to keep him warm while waiting for help.

On Monday, Renner confirmed that he was recovering from the injuries at home following the incident. He responded to a tweet about the season premiere of “Mayor of Kingstown” being available to stream. He wrote: “Outside my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home.” Before this, on Thursday, he posted photos of his Nevada home on Instagram Stories, saying he was missing his happy place.

On January 1, local authorities reported that Renner was hit by a massive snow plow weighing in at 14,330 pounds while on his Reno-area property. According to Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam, who spoke during a press conference on January 4th, 2023, there were no indications that Renner was impaired when it happened – only suffering from serious injuries. Although it is still unknown exactly how badly these injuries will affect him in the long term, we can be sure that millions will remain concerned and eager for an update from the actor himself in due course.

The road to recovery may be long, but thankfully friends and fans alike have been sending their love and support in abundance. It is heartwarming to see so much positivity surrounding this story despite its tragic circumstances and demonstrate why Jeremy Renner is held so dearly by so many people around the world.

Actress Claire Danes, 43, Reveals that she is Expecting her Third Child in the Coming Months

Claire Danes, the renowned 43-year-old actress best known for her iconic roles in films such as Romeo + Juliet and My So-Called Life, has recently announced that she is expecting her third child with husband Hugh Dancy. The couple first met while filming the drama Evening in 2006 and tied the knot just three years later in a romantic ceremony held in France.

Since then, they have welcomed two sons into their family – Cyrus Michael Christopher, aged 10, and Rowan, aged four. The exact due date of the baby is still unknown, but it is expected that the couple will welcome their third child in the coming months. An official representative confirmed the news to the media, saying that both Danes and Dancy are “thrilled to be expecting another little one into their family.”

Danes’ year has been exceptionally busy; the starlet starred in two critically acclaimed series – The Essex Serpent, and Fleishman Is In Trouble. Both saw her nominated for Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice awards for her performance as a high-powered theatre agent opposite Jesse Eisenberg’s Toby Fleishman.

The 2023 Golden Globes are set to take place on Tuesday this week, where fans of Danes will get their first glimpse of the soon-to-be mother of three since news of her pregnancy spread. Her husband Hugh stars in the revival of the NBC crime series Law & Order, which debuted earlier this year.

However, not much is known of their private lives with their children; Claire did allude to how accustomed her eldest son had become to life on set when speaking about him growing up during Homeland’s third season: “He’s the Homeland baby… I have so many photos of him in various stages of development in Carrie Mathison’s chair.”

This isn’t Danes’ first experience with parenting. When she was pregnant with Rowan in 2018, she expressed how excited she was to “kick [her] feet up a little bit” after working extensively throughout most of Cyrus’ pregnancy. Speaking fondly about motherhood back in 2014, she described it as “amazing”; one can only imagine how delighted she must be heading into this new chapter with her family.

Claire Danes’ pregnancy announcement is sure to bring joy, excitement, and anticipation for the new addition to their family in the coming months. Fans of the talented actress will be eagerly awaiting to see her walk down the red carpet with her growing baby bump later this week.
