Denzel Equalizes the Competition

Denzel Washington is back in the box office sweepstakes, and he's on top.

Over the weekend, his new movie, The Equalizer grossed over $35 million.

In it, Denzel plays a former special forces fighter who comes out of retirement to fight the Russian mob.

The movie is loosely based on the TV series of the same name from the late 1980s that starred Edward Woodward.

And before the movie even opened, they were working on a sequel.

That's some powerful faith right there.

SNL Fails the Funny

It’s a new season at Saturday Night Live, and the trending commentary is not good for last Saturday’s season premiere.

In it, the writers and actors “spoofed” the ongoing problems the National Football League has been having with its players. Players like Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and their ilk have all been in the news, both on and off the field, and none of it is good.

The skit involved football players introducing themselves, and instead of saying the name of the school they attended – which is the norm – they recited charges against them.

Not a lot funny there. But check it out for yourself. See if you don't agree...

George & Amal Tie the Knot

In case you missed it, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin said their "I do's" in Italy over the weekend.

It was a star-studded but low-key event that managed to basically shut down Venice - but what a wonderful backdrop for the wedding photos, huh?

London's Daily Telegraph posted this video of the wedding party and guests catching water taxis to get to the wedding itself.

It's sort of like watching paint dry, but maybe you can make it entertaining by playing "Name That Celebrity!"

Clinton Grandchild Arrives

Chelsea Clinton gave birth to Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky last week, the first grandchild for former president Bill Clinton and possible future president, Hillary Clinton.

The Clintons are simply delighted to be grandparents.

In fact, Bill tweeted a note to hours-old Charlotte.

"@billclinton" said he and "@HillaryClinton" appear to be very happy about Charlottes arrival.

And they've still got a year or so to decide whether the baby will need to call grandpa and grandma by their Twitter handles...

Doo Wop or Do Not?

I think I'm getting tired of Jimmy Fallon presuming to sing with icons from the music industry.

It started a couple of weeks ago when Jimmy sang on The Tonight Show with Barbra Streisand in her first TV appearance in decades.

Last week, he sat across the desk from Robert Plant, the legendary front man for Led Zeppelin, and used a computer app to mix in vocals tracks for the classic 50's tune, "Duke of Earl."

Robert was gracious, but do you get the sense that maybe it would be better to let Robert sing on his own?

Scary? Just a Lot!

A contract employee for the FAA started a fire at the Air Route Traffic Control Center outside Chicago on Friday that grounded or rerouted thousands of flights on Friday. The disruption lasted into the weekend.

Authorities were alerted to a problem when a family member told them about a Facebook post the contractor had made. "Take a hard look in the mirror, I have. And this why I'm about to take out ZAU and my life." ZAU refers to the control center.

Looks like we’re going to have to start demanding that air traffic controllers pass through TSA checkpoints just to get into work.

True Detective Goes Mini

The Internet is buzzing with the casting news for True Detective's second season - Colin Farrell as a cop, Vince Vaughn as a criminal, plus two more roles to be cast later.

Not everyone's in love with that idea.

So the folks at Funny or Die have an alternative: Tiny Detectives.

Check out this promo, starring Ellen Page and Kate Mara. Funny stuff - even more so if you know the show.

Bill & Ted's Good Idea?

First, there was Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Some now call that film a cult classic.

That was followed by Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

And now, 23 years later, they're talking about Bill & Ted 3.

Yup. That's what Alex Winter - the co-writer and co-star of the first two films - told Yahoo! Movies yesterday.

According to Alex, the script's been in the works for a long time, and will feature 40-something Bill and Ted."What if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”

That's Alex's tease for the movie. He says Keanu Reeves is on board to reprise his character, and they have a director, producers and financiers lined up as well.

All they've got to do is come up with a final draft of the script, and they're in business.

And that's when we'll all see if this is a good idea or not.

Kevin Durant is LeBron James?

Ever wonder what NBA players do with their downtime?

Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder plays NBA video games on his PlayStation. On The Tonight Show this week, he told Jimmy Fallon he's really good at it. In fact, he and some of his friends have summerlong tournaments.

Except for his brother, who gets too intense and might break Kevin's TV.

Oh, and by the way, Kevin doesn't play as himself. That would be "kinda arrogant." So instead, he plays as LeBron James.

 
And in case you missed it, Kevin is this year's cover model for NBA2K15. Check out the trailer for it. Yes, a trailer, for a video game...

Dumb & Dumber To On The Way!

Harry and Lloyd are about six weeks away from a theater near you.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have reunited for Dumb & Dumber To - the sequel to 1994's Dumb & Dumber.

(Let's not throw 2003's Dumb & Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd into this conversation. It will just produce heartburn, and who needs that?)

It's 20 years later, and the pair is back on the road, this time in search of their long-lost children.

Doesn't look like the 20 years have smartened them up any - and what's wrong with that?
