St. Elmo’s Fire is Becoming a TV Series: Yes, It’s True

It was bound to happen eventually, right?

Bo Report: Fast start for ‘Fast & Furious’ spin-off

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.’

As a spin-off, Universal’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw was never destined to roar out of the starting blocks with the same velocity as the previous editions of the franchise.

But the opening weekend for the action thriller starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in Australia over-indexed the Us bow and the worldwide tally was a none-too-shabby $179 million.

The top 20 titles generated $17.4 million, a slight 7 per cent dip on the previous weekend, according to Numero. Palace’s French psychological drama/thriller Who You Think I Am proved to be effective counter-programming for non-rev-heads, while Sony’s Chinese firefighting movie The Bravest fared Ok on limited screens.

Rialto’s indie Us drama The Public and Madman Entertainment’s romantic drama Ophelia directed by Aussie Claire McCarthy struggled in line with their Us results.

Directed by David Leitch, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw clocked up $7.2 million,

‘The Public’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Emilio Estevez, Alec Baldwin, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Michael Kenneth Williams, Christian Slater | Written and Directed by Emilio Estevez

Emilio Estevez returns to cinema screens behind the camera with The Public after an eight-year absence following The Way in 2010. Estevez returns with another political venture surrounding a peaceful demonstration during the polar vortex at a public library in Cincinnati. It is comprised of an all-star cast including the likes of Alec Baldwin, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Michael Kenneth Williams, Christian Slater and even Estevez himself as the leading character.

The Public is a terrific cinematic effort from Estevez. Diving deep into a social, political matter that is causing chaos and death all around the Us with little interest from the political world that is ultimately causing it. Estevez’ latest venture is a poignant and compelling premise that examines said social issue with tenderness and heart.
