The monument is being built on the day before a massive, nationwide walkout by students demanding tougher laws on gun ownership, part of a campaign that emerged after the killing of 17 students and staff at a Florida high school a month ago. Read More

Jonathan Groff, James Earl Jones, Cobie Smulders, Glenn Close and Cynthia Nixon shared memorable moments that didn’t make the telecast.

The best of Broadway was applauded on Sunday night at the Tony Awards, but there were a few memorable moments that didn’t make the live telecast from Radio City Music Hall.

The Hollywood Reporter shares the things you missed.

To revisit the box office numbers for 1988 is to remember when movies that made a lot of money looked entirely different than they do now. Rain Man grossed more money domestically than anything else that year. It was followed in the top 10 by Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Coming To America, Big, Twins, Crocodile Dundee II, Die Hard, The Naked Gun, Cocktail, and Beetlejuice. Only one sequel in the bunch. That’s two adult dramas (if you count Cocktail, which … maybe?), seven comedies, and Die Hard. Read More
