Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” had an easy voyage to the top of the domestic box office this weekend. The Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt-starring movie made $34-point-two-million for its debut, making it the third-largest pandemic opening.
The flick was a streaming hit, too, making over $30-million worldwide as a Disney+ Premier Access release. Meanwhile, it had no problem dominating its competition “The Green Knight,” which made the second spot at the domestic box office with $6-point-eight-million.
Here’s this weekend’s top 10 movies:
This might be the greatest life hack ever. TikTok user Orlando Johnson shared a video, at McDonalds where he sends his friend to the counter with an empty box of large fries and the friend simply asks for a refill – that’s it!
Evidently there is a McDonald’s policy to refill large size fries and it’s been confirmed by numerous people that it really works.
On top of that, Johnson has posted another video testing the policy at Wendy’s and it could reveal that other fast-food chains are doing the same thing so it could be worth a try at your favorite place.
Over the weekend, LeBron James got some negative social media attention. While at an Usher performance, a fan allegedly approached him asking for a picture. In the posted video, James can be seen pushing the fan away while walking towards what looks to be the exit. It’s not known how polite or rude the request was, how James was approached, or if anything led up to the encounter. Overwhelmingly, the social media peanut gallery said people should respect a celebrity’s privacy while he’s having a night out with his wife.
Molson Coors Retiring 11 Economy Brands: If you’re into Keystone Ice, Icehouse Edge or Milwaukee’s Best Premium, it’s time to find something else as CEO Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley said in an earnings call that the company will retire 11 economy brands. That includes Miller High Life Light (though Miller High Life will remain), Hamm’s Special Light and Steel Reserve 211, too. Hattersley noted the move will help “improve supply chain flexibility” for their priority brands.
The Idaho man known for breaking records is at it again. David Rush set a new record by balancing 19 drinking glasses on a wooden stick held in his mouth…Because, that’s what they do in Idaho.
Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce is final, each will walk with basically $76 Billion. Speaking of Billionaire’s Jeff Bezos has lost the title (for now anyway) of World’s Richest man. Bezos lost close to $14-billion when Amazon shares fell nearly eight percent Friday after the e-commerce giant reported second quarter earnings.
Sitting at the top of the heap now? French businessman Bernard Arnault has taken the title of world’s richest man. Don’t feel to sorry for Bezos howeve, he’s still worth an estimated 196-billion dollars.
