New York City movie theaters welcomed back customers for the first time in nearly a year this weekend but it didn’t help much. Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon,” a computer-animated fantasy adventure, opened to $8.6 million from 2,045 screens. That failed to match the impressive (for a pandemic) debut of “Tom & Jerry,” which earned $14.1 million last weekend. For the second week “Tom & Jerry” picked up $6.6 million domestically, pushing its haul to $23 million. “Chaos Walking,” delayed and not reviewed kindly with Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, got $3.8 million for a third-place finish. It cost about $100 million to make. It was originally scheduled to debut in March 2019, before it underwent reshoots.
Eddie Murphy had a plan of attack but the pandemic shut it down. Just like most of us. His plan was to do Dolemite, Saturday Night Live, Coming 2 America and then do stand-up. And then the pandemic hit, and shut stuff down. We knew he was signing with Netflix in 2019 to do stand up and what not. So this past year is when he would have been out tightening things up. SO the stand up is still coming eventually.
The 18-wheeler used to “portray” Optimus Prime in final scene from the film Transformers: Bumblebee could be yours for only $21.600. Check the Carfax though, as its Facebook seller writes that the 1987 cab-over-engine Freightliner “has been sitting for almost a year now”, adding “Obviously with the cold weather it would take some doing to get it fired up, but it is definitely possible.” It is in Nebraska, they wants the rig gone so he is taking offers.
Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer are getting with Steven Spielberg to do a series from Stephen King and Peter Straub book, The Talisman, to life with a Netflix series. This is something Spielberg has wanted to do for more than thirty years now. The Talisman novel follows a 12-year-old boy who journeys to save his cancer-stricken mother’s life, finding an ancient crystal that can not only save his mom, but the world, too. The project is in the early stages, so no production or premiere date has been set yet.
NICOLAS CAGE recently got married in Las Vegas . . . AGAIN . . . and this one has already lasted longer than the last one. Word has it that he married a woman named Riko Shibata in Vegas back on February 16th. For what it’s worth, he’s 57 and she’s 26. Nicolas confirmed the news, saying, quote, “It’s true, and we are very happy.” His rep says the couple met in Japan “over a year ago.” Nic has now been married five times. His first two were to Patricia Arquette and Lisa Marie Presley. His longest marriage was to Alice Kim. They were together from 2004 to 2016. And in 2019, he married a woman named Erika Koike in Vegas . . . but filed for an annulment just FOUR DAYS later. He was eventually granted a divorce. This wedding wasn’t spontaneous. Nicolas says the date was chosen because it was his father’s birthday.
We all know the “Looney Tunes” character, Pepé Le Pew, who first appeared back in 1945. “New York Times” columnist Charles M. Blow recently said that Pepé added to RAPE CULTURE. He said, quote, “Some of the first cartoons I can remember included Pepé Le Pew, who normalized rape culture . . . Speedy Gonzales, whose friends helped popularize the corrosive stereotype of the drunk and lethargic Mexicans . . .”And Mammy Two Shoes, a heavyset Black maid who spoke in a heavy accent.” Naturally, that hit a nerve during the charged hysteria over cancel culture, and it wasn’t long before Blow was in the middle of a social media crossfire. So, he shared a clip of Pepé, which shows him basically imprisoning Penelope Pussycat.
- He grabs / kisses a girl / stranger, repeatedly, without consent and against her will.
- She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her.
- He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.
Some say Penelope tries to get away because she’s a CAT, and that she’s trying to get away because of his stink since HE is a skunk. And that Pepé always gets clowned in the end. Pepé chases after her with serious romantic interest so no matter why she wants to get away, the fact is that she is not interested, and is always struggling to free herself. DAVE CHAPPELLE had a bit about Pepé being a rapist 20 years ago. They haven’t commented on this current freak out over Pepé though. Pepé will NOT be in the upcoming “Space Jam” sequel . . . even though he had a prominent role in the 1996 original, and WAS supposed to have a scene in the new movie. Interestingly, the scene was going to CALL OUT Pepé for his behavior toward women . . . and the actress from the live-action portion of the scene is MAD that it was cut.
There’s probably no way to definitely settle the debate over what the first ROCK AND ROLL SONG was. But a serious contender for that title just reached a milestone this month. The song is called “Rocket 88“. It’s by IKE TURNER AND THE KINGS OF RHYTHM, with a guy named Jackie Brenston on vocals. The song came out in the first week of March, 1951 . . . which means it just turned 70 YEARS OLD. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and “The New Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll” think it is. And maybe that counts for SOMETHING
The Grammys announce their performers for the show March 14th. Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Taylor Swift. Beyonce has the most nominations but isn’t scheduled to grace us with a performance.

Employees, ranging from bartenders to box office managers, who work at Los Angeles’ Troubadour and Hotel Cafe, New York City’s Apollo Theater and Nashville’s Station Inn will present awards
Sometimes, turning a movie into a TV show really works. “M*A*S*H” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” are two. Also,“Fargo”, “Westworld”, and “Friday Night Nights. Others did NOT work so well. “Ultimate Classic Rock” has a list of 28 of them. Here are the highlights:
