The Movie 'It' Continues To Set Records

The horror movie “It” is now the highest grossing September release ever after making $60 million in its second weekend.

That gives the film a ten-day total of $218 million and puts it well on pace to become only the 4th R-rated movie to gross over $300 million in the U.S.

The September record was previously held by “Crocodile Dundee,” which made $174 million in 1984.


'American Idol' Can't Find Enough Judges & May Delay Production

The reboot of American Idol has hit a serious production snag.  The singing competition might have to delay the taping of its 2018 revival because the producers can’t find enough judges!

The only judge they have secured right now is Katy Perry, but the producers aren’t even close to finalizing the rest of the panel and they are only a few weeks away from the scheduled start of filming. 

If they are forced to delay production, it would interfere with Katy‘s concert tour, which kicks off tomorrow in Montreal, Canada.

Idol producers are reportedly still trying to secure country star Luke Bryan as a second judge, but nothing has been finalized – and there aren’t any leads at ALL for a third judge.


The "Emmys" Took a Lot of Shots at President Trump, Including an Appearance by Sean Spicer
