9LOS ANGELES) The Fate of the Furious has sped into first place at the box office again. Studio estimates Sunday say the eighth installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise earned $38.7 million over the weekend. The new competition didn't stand a chance against the high-octane film, which had the biggest global debut of all time last weekend. Disney's animal documentary Born in China earned $5.1 million to open in fourth place, behind holdovers The Boss Baby, with $12.8 million, and Beauty and the Beast, with $10 million. Two other new movies fared worse. Warner Bros.' thriller Unforgettable, starring Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson, opened at No. 7 with a $4.8 million. The Armenian genocide drama The Promise, with Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, took ninth place with $4.1 million.

Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are WWE's two biggest stars, even with Braun Strowman breathing down their necks as the promotion's next premier giant. And as Lesnar and Reigns seem to be on a collision course for a big-time main event to follow up their instant classic from WrestleMania 31, there are elements to love, and there is also room for improvement with WWE's dueling powerhouses. Brock Lesnar What's Right? Brock Lesnar as a Part-Time Universal Champion After spending much of WWE's winter season getting speared and jackhammered by Goldberg, Brock Lesnar has been rebuilt into the beast of old following a scintillating victory over his nemesis at WrestleMania 33. The match had all the drama and excitement that evaded their WrestleMania XX predecessor, which instead was replaced by New York rage. With Lesnar as world champion for the second time since returning in 2012, WWE has positioned itself to give the rub to the rising stars of its new era.

In the Stanley Cup Playoffs, experience rules the day. Learning the grind of the NHL regular season is one thing. The playoffs are an even tougher beast to tame, thanks to both the relentless schedule and the increased intensity. Many players need a bit of firsthand practice before they dial in how to be their best in the postseasonchanneling their excitement and passion in a way that delivers positive results. It's an extraordinary achievement when a rookie has success in the playoffslike Matt Murray did last season when he channeled his inner Patrick Roy and Ken Dryden as he backstopped the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Stanley Cup. Claude Lemieux was another instant hit, putting up 10 goals and 16 points on his way to the 1986 Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens, and Brad Marchand tallied 19 points as a rookie on the Boston Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup run.

Now, in an effort to harken back to an era of peak popularity, Marvel is returning to the informal Blue/Gold team structure that was used to differentiate the two main X-books during the 1990s, although with different rosters for each team. X-Men: Gold will be led by Kitty Pryde, who is fresh off a stint in space with the Guardians, and will consist of Old Man Logan (the inspiration for the new Logan film), Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Rachel Grey. X-Men: Blue will have the original teenage X-MenJean Grey, Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, and Beast—who have been transported through time to find themselves stuck in the present. This relaunch was saddled with some unintended controversy when online readers of X-Men: Gold #1 pointed out that the artist, Ardian Syaf, had hidden some anti-Christian and anti-Jewish messages in that issue’s artwork . Marvel has since released an apology , fired Syaf from the book, and even pulled the issue from Comixology’s digital storefront, promising that future printings of the book will feature revised artwork.

The massive hype and anticipation surrounding the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon reached a crescendo when the muscle car was officially unveiled at the 2017 New York Auto Show. For all intents and purposes, the Challenger SRT Demon lived up to the hype, that is if you thought its 840-horsepower met expectations. But some people, myself included, actually thought Dodge wouldve swung for the fences with a car that packed 1,000 horsepower. In that regard, the Demon was a bit of a letdown, that is until we heard news that American tuner extraordinaire Hennessey is making things right with a package for the muscle car that will turn the beast into the demonic 1,500-horsepower monster we thought it would be. See, news of Hennessey’s intentions for the Demon shouldnt come as a surprise to those who know what the tuner is capable of. This is, after all, the same company that makes a routine of developing massive aftermarket kits for America’s biggest and baddest muscle cars.

James Mattis doesnt necessarily want to be president—but that’s not stopping a group of billionaire donors from hatching a plan to get him there.” Though none of the allegedbillionaires” were named there, one prominent voice backing Mattis for the Presidency, in that article, was Bill Kristol, the Rupert Murdoch agent who co-founded the Project for a New American Century, which was the first influential group pushing the “regime-change in Iraqidea during the late 1990s, and which also advocated for the foreign policies that George W.

When it comes to tuning your BMW 2 Series, you can’t go any more hardcore than what the guys from AC Schnitzer are proposing with their ACL2 model . Their heavily tuned BMW M240i is a proper beast, no matter how you look at it. Developed initially as a sort of exercise to see just how fast the F22 chassis can go, the small Coupe can apparently not just look pretty but also go pretty fast. The German tuner wanted to showcase how fast the ACL2 really is and to do that, they invited a few for a test drive and a power lap around the company’s traditional testing ground, the Sachsenring track. The outcome left everyone baffled. The AC Schnitzer ACL2 not only managed to post a decent lap time but it somehow ended up being faster on it than a proper supercar such as the Lamborghini Aventador SV or SuperVeloce as its full name would go. That’s a super-rare 750 HP special edition of the Italian variety, a car that has a price tag known to cause shivers and all sorts of weird reactions.
