Published

on

Lionsgate’s World War II thriller Midway starring Nick Jonas sailed its way to the top of the box office this weekend, beating out fellow newcomers Doctor Sleep, Playing With Fire and Last Christmas.

Director Roland Emmerich’s film, budgeted at $100 million, opened with an estimated $17.5 million to lead a rather lackluster weekend at the box office, according to Box Office Mojo. 

While the Stephen King adaptation Doctor Sleep had easily been expected to top the box office with a projected $25 million, it came in far under expectations, debuting in second place with $14.1 million.

Midway debuted in 3,242 theaters earning a middling $5,397 per-screen average, and it didn’t fare much better overseas as well.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals Midway earned just $21.8 million from foreign markets, the bulk of which comes from China where it debuted between $15 million and $16 million. 

Midway wasn’t received terribly well by critics either, with just a 41% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

While Doctor Sleep was a hit with critics (74% on Rotten Tomatoes), the R-rated 151-minute sequel to The Shining couldn’t inspire many fans to hit the theaters.

Writer-director Mike Flanagan’s Stephen King adaptation earned $14.1 million from 3,855 theaters for a paltry per-screen average of $3,657.

Doctor Sleep also didn’t fare too well internationally with a foreign tally of $20 million for a global opening weekend of $34.1 million, though it’s budget at $50 million is far more manageable than Midway’s.

Paramount’s Playing With Fire starring John Cena debuted in third place this weekend with $12.8 million.

The firehouse comedy, also starring Keegan Michael Key and John Leguizamo, debuted in 3,125 theaters for a per-screen average of $4,066.

Critics were not a fan of the comedy either, with just a 24% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and it only earned $2.5 million from 10 foreign markets for a global debut of $15.3 million.

Last Christmas debuted in 3,448 theaters, for a $3,364 per-screen average, failing to impress critics as well with just a 48% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

They broke up last month.

But Kylie Jenner was in attendance at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Festival in Houston on Saturday, their daughter Stormi to watch her dad in concert.

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul traveled to Scott’s hometown so his only child could attend his 2nd annual music festival.

And at one point during Scott’s set, he announced to the crowd that his one-and-a-half year old was at the show.

Adding to the family feel, he brought out Kylie’s brother-in-law Kanye West as a special guest to perform two songs.

‘Kylie flew to Houston with a group of friends. She returns to L.A. this morning,’ a source told People on Sunday.

‘It was important for her to support Travis’ festival. They are still very close and often hang out with Stormi.’

Sources told TMZ that the former couple have remained friends and are making it a priority to be parenting partners, although they are not back together.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also had a ulterior motive to make it to the festival: she’s a huge fan of Spanish singer Rosalía, who was part of the artist lineup.

The Houston Chronicle reported that Jenner sat in the front row and could be seen dancing with what looked like friend Sofia Richie, with police and security guards in close proximity as a precaution.

Rosalía even took notice and gave a shout out and dedicated a song to Jenner during her set.

During West’s special guest appearance he performed his 2007 hit Can’t Tell Me Nothing and his new song Follow God from his newly released studio album Jesus Is King in front of an estimated 50,000 fans.

Beforehand, three people were injured and had to be hospitalized when thousands of people rushed through the entrance, knocking down a barricade to get into the the festival. 

A video posted to Scott’s Instagram showed several attendees jumping over barricades before knocking them over altogether.

He was uncovered last week as a secret actor looking for fame on The Bachelorette.

And front runner Carlin Sterritt, 30, has revealed why he never told Angie Kent, 29, about working as an actor and model.

‘I didn’t want to talk about acting and modelling, because I never wanted Angie to question my sincerity,’ he told TV Week this week.

‘I tried to be myself and as genuine as possible.’

Last week, Angie’s fears came true during Thursday’s hometown episode after Carlin’s brother, Jarvie, told her the fitness trainer saw the show as a career opportunity.

It was a devastating blow for Angie, who had previously been warned about Carlin’s secret by ousted contestant Jamie Doran.

While speaking privately to Jarvie, Angie mentioned what Jamie had said about Carlin using the show to further his acting career.

But rather than put her fears to bed, Jarvie awkwardly confirmed that his brother was indeed using The Bachelorette to raise his profile.

‘I guess so… I think at the start, yeah,’ he said.

But Jarvie later added that his brother’s connection with Angie was genuine, despite the fact he’d initially only signed up for fame.

Confronting Carlin later in the episode, Angie said: ‘I don’t care if you’re an actor, that doesn’t mean you can’t love [somebody]. Just say that you are one.’

He defended himself, saying he wasn’t ‘hustling’ or ‘shooting for the stars’ and was only on The Bachelorette to find love.

The hunk then gave Angie an ultimatum, saying she either had to trust his intentions or send him home.

‘If you can’t see me at the end of the day for who I am and what we’ve built, then that’s it,’ he said. ‘Do you know how many times I could have bailed on this thinking it’s too hard?’

Carlin enters the final week with Timm Hanly and Ryan Anderson.
