After several weeks of limited movement, a handful of new releases prompted a pretty thorough shakeup of the Box Office Top 10. While Beauty and the Beast continued its unstoppable assault on the domestic box office, we also said hello this weekend to three new movies and goodbye to a handful of old favorites from the first few months of the year. Let’s start with the estimated numbers as of Sunday afternoon.
You tilted your head to the side and went, “Huh,” when you first heard about it. You said to yourself, “Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about that,” when you saw casting news about it. Now, you can see it for yourself — or, at least, two minutes and forty-two seconds of it: Dax Shepard’s CHiPs movie remake finally has its very first trailer.
Warner Bros. has announced release dates for two of their upcoming adaptations / reboots, adding both films — along with an untitled mystery project — to their 2017 slate. First up is CHiPs, Dax Shepard’s new action-comedy based on the classic ’80s TV series, starring Shepard and Michael Peña in the leading roles. Next is It, the long-developing and slightly-delayed adaptation of Stephen King’s beloved horror novel, which became the subject of some minor controversy following director Cary Fukunaga’s departure.
Sometimes he has no filters. It's like the microphone (or camera) isn't even on. Sadly, you get to bear witness to it today as Jon James bares more than just his soul in this review of potato chips and fries. As his physique and this review will attest, he's not on a low carb diet.
Earlier this week Jonny tried some new potato chips that he discovered; the Cape Cod Waffle Sea Salt Chips. He loved them! I mean, he really, really loved them! His review led me to go out and buy some. I couldn't wait... and I couldn't have been more disappointed.
Gosh, I love potato chips. It amazes me that, even after all these years of potato chip companies selling their products, they're still coming up with new ways to present these crispy, thin, vegetable based morsels of pure, unadulterated Heaven. But, lo and behold, they've done it again.
The first time I brought a bag of "Dark Russet" gourmet kettle chips, Mac Dickson told me I got ripped off, saying they were nothing more than burnt chips they decided to market as a special product. I denied the possibility of that.
Looks like Warner Bros. is hoping they can replicate the success Columbia had with '21 Jump Street' with a small-to-big screen reboot of their own: the studio has hired Dax Shepard to write, direct, and star in a film version of the classic cop series 'CHiPS,' and he's bringing Michael Pena along for the ride.
A single chocolate bitMy oh my...what a pretty little morsel of savory goodness. Dark chocolate compressed into a tiny bit that's barely the size of your fingernail. How on Earth could that possibly cause any problems?
