Why you should see ‘Dunkirk’ in 70mm?

Why you should see ‘Dunkirk’ in 70mm?

Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed “Dunkirk” is the latest film to use an old piece of Hollywood technology: 70 millimeter film. There’s been considerable fanfare around Nolan’s decision to film the Warner Bros.’ World War II drama in 70mm, and for good reason. “Dunkirk,” which opens this weekend, will be the widest release for the format in 25 years at a time where nearly all theaters have moved to digital projection instead of film. So just…

Initial investigation blames Navy for USS Fitzgerald collision

Initial investigation blames Navy for USS Fitzgerald collision

Preliminary findings in the investigation into the collision between the USS Fitzgerald and a Philippine cargo ship off the coast of Japan in June suggest the accident was caused by multiple errors by the Fitzgerald’s crew and a failure to take action in the minutes leading to the collision, according to two defense officials. “They did nothing until the last second,” one official said. “A slew of things went wrong.” A second official said the…

Remember Blink-182? Neither do these kids wearing Blink-182 shirts

Remember Blink-182? Neither do these kids wearing Blink-182 shirts

Just a word of advice: If you’re going to buy one of those band T-shirts from Hot Topic, you might want to do a little research on the band. Who’s Mark Hoppus? Oh, just the bassist and singer for Blink-182, the perennial ’90s pop-punk band known for its hit songs like “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again?” and “I Miss You.” But when the 45-year-old musician tried to compliment his fans on their Blink-182…

What Anthony Scaramucci tells us about Donald Trump’s White House

What Anthony Scaramucci tells us about Donald Trump’s White House

Sean Spicer is out of the White House. Anthony Scaramucci is in. What that staff shuffle tells us about President Donald Trump is a lot more than you might think. Spicer, remember, is not and never has been a “Trump guy.” He was brought into the White House at the urging of Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman-turned-White House chief of staff. Prior to his time at the RNC, Spicer kicked around a number…

Mice caught on tape at a Dallas Chipotle

Mice caught on tape at a Dallas Chipotle

Chipotle’s stock fell on Thursday as the company suffered another public setback: Customers complained that they saw rodents in a Dallas location. “A few mice did get inside one restaurant from the outside due to a small structural gap in the building,” Chipotle Mexican Grill spokeswoman Quinn Kelsey said Thursday. “Management immediately removed them, and the gap has been repaired.” Diners took video of the mice skittering through the restaurant on Tuesday. The stock was…

Jada Pinkett Smith was a drug dealer when she met Tupac

Jada Pinkett Smith has come a long way from her humble beginnings in Baltimore. The actress opened up about her relationship with Tupac Shakur when she appeared on SiriusXM’s “Sway in The Morning” on Wednesday to promote her new movie “Girls Trip.” “One of the things that’s very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first met Pac, when we first met, I was a drug dealer.” Smith befriended the late…

White House: Trump has confidence in Sessions, despite biting comments

White House: Trump has confidence in Sessions, despite biting comments

A White House spokeswoman said Thursday that President Donald Trump has confidence in Attorney General Jeff Sessions, despite the President telling the New York Times 24 hours earlier that he regretted appointing Sessions because he was forced to recuse himself from investigations into the 2016 campaign and Russia. Sanders, however, confirmed that Trump and Sessions have not talked since his comments about his job status. Trump was “disappointed” in Sessions’ decision to recuse himself “but…

What’s next for O.J. Simpson?

What’s next for O.J. Simpson?

O.J. Simpson was granted parole Thursday, after serving nearly nine years in prison for a 2007 armed robbery in Las Vegas. But the former NFL superstar and movie actor’s future outside of prison may not be so rosy. Life outside the Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium security prison in Nevada’s high desert, could well resemble Simpson’s solitary years after he was acquitted in the slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron…

Apple, Google and Microsoft are hoarding $464 billion in cash

Apple, Google and Microsoft are hoarding $464 billion in cash

Apple, Google and Microsoft are sitting on a mountain of cash — and most of it is stashed far away from the taxman. Those three tech behemoths held a total of $464 billion in cash at the end of last year, according to a Moody’s report published Wednesday. Apple alone had a stunning quarter-trillion dollars of cash thanks to years of gigantic profits and few major acquisitions. That’s enough money to buy Netflix three times….

Wildfire near Yosemite forces thousands to flee homes

Kim Strauss didn’t see the wildfire consume his California residence, but he says he’d be surprised if the home was still there. Strauss is one of a few thousand people who were told to leave their homes because of a wildfire raging in California’s Mariposa County, to the west of Yosemite National Park. He saw the flames approaching from a ridge near his house southwest of Mariposa city on Tuesday morning. A sheriff’s officer told…

Eighth person in Trump team meeting linked to money laundering investigation

A Government Accountability Office report published in 2000 details how companies in the US set up bank accounts that came under investigation for money laundering — and it involved Ike Kaveladze, the eighth person who has now been identified as attending the June 9, 2016 meeting that Donald Trump Jr., his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had with a Russian lawyer. The GAO report published in October 2000 outlined how companies…

The Democrats actually want to ‘own’ health care. But not how Donald Trump means it.

The Democrats actually want to ‘own’ health care. But not how Donald Trump means it.

The Senate Republican health care bill is dead and the prospect of a show-me vote on full repeal without replacement is a zombie stalking the halls of Capitol Hill. Over at the White House, President Donald Trump began Wednesday with a pair of tweets demanding some kind of resurrection, but even now, what he truly wants is an open question. Mostly sidelined during the Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ill-fated sausage-making, Trump on Tuesday passed the…

32 million more people would be uninsured under new Senate Obamacare repeal bill

32 million more people would be uninsured under new Senate Obamacare repeal bill

A new Senate bill to repeal Obamacare would leave 32 million more people uninsured by 2026 than under current law, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis released Wednesday. Even more stunning, three-quarters of the nation would live in areas with no insurers participating in the individual market by 2026 — leaving many without an option if they do not have employer-provided or government health insurance, such as Medicare or Medicaid. Also, premiums would about…
