CRAZY RICH ASIANS and THE MEG devour McCarthy's comedy flop HAPPYTIME MURDERS

It has been yet ANOTHER brutal weekend for Melissa McCarthy..




Box office reports are indicating that the HAPPYTIME MURDERS has tanked..

Anthony D'Alessando reports it this way:


Which brings us to STX Entertainment’s raunchy, R-rated Melissa McCarthy-puppet comedy, The Happytime Murders, which is dead and wrapped in plastic with a $10.2M start, repping the Groundling alum’s lowest wide opening ever for one of her solo films – not counting St. Vincent, which was a platform release. Happytime Murders’ opening is even lower than McCarthy’s May PG-13 title Life of the Party ($17.9M), which we thought was rock bottom.

Beyond the disastrous box office numbers, ratings have been poor as well.

Lately, the rising comedy stardom of McCathy has diminished into a box office travesty.. Movie after movie seems like it gets worse. What was once star has become a shark.. bigger than MEG.. Mightier than CRAZY RICH ASIANS.



But even with all that said, I would love to see the movie and still want to.
I think it will be surprisingly better than movie critics and armchair critics on ROTTEN TOMATOES write.

I will give Brian Henson a chance.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet.
