The beloved actor, film director, producer and entrepreneur Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90. As a film director and producer, Richard Attenborough won two Academy Awards for ‘Gandhi’ in 1983. He has also won four BAFTA Awards and four Golden Globe Awards. As an actor he is perhaps best known for his roles in ‘Brighton Rock,’ ‘The Great Escape,’ ’10 Rillington Place,’ ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ and Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur blockbuster ‘Jurassic Park.’

In addition to ‘Gandhi,’ Richard Attenborough also directed the Steve Biko story ‘Cry Freedom,’ one of the few serious films made in the 1980s attacking apartheid in South Africa, the Robert Downey Jr-led ‘Chaplin,’ and ‘Shadowlands.’ Richard Attenborough was the older brother of Sir David Attenborough, the naturalist and broadcaster, and John Attenborough, who was an executive at Alfa Romeo before his death in 2012. RIP to a wonderful man and a giant of cinema.

Earlier this month Warner Bros. Pictures announced that ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is set arrive in cinemas nearly two months earlier than originally planned. The hugely anticipated film is now penciled in for a March 25th, 2016 release. In addition to the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ release news, the studio also announced a massive schedule of 9 mystery DC Comics properties all the way up through 2020. And with Jason Momoa rumored to be playing Aquaman since December (rather conveniently it looks as if he was in Detroit at the same rock climbing gym as Gal Gadot (Gadot’s Instagram and Momoa’s Instagram) recently), and the studio hiring Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire) and Will Beall (Gangster Squad) to write two separate scripts for an Aquaman movie, it looks as if we’ll be seeing Aquaman on the big screen sometime in the foreseeable future.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ To Pass ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ As The Summer’s Highest Grossing Film In North America

guardians of the galaxy team 21 ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ To Pass ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ As The Summer’s Highest Grossing Film In North America

My faith in humanity is slightly restored, as numerous outlets are reporting that Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is now the highest grossing film of the summer in North America. The film had earned $239 million by Friday and is set to gross an estimated $246 million by Saturday, which would top the expected $243.3 million domestic haul of ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction.’ Marvel’s superhero space opera is pegged to earn $252 million by weekend’s end.

That being said, ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ is the worldwide box office winner by a stretch, having grossed $1.05 billion by Friday (75% of its box office revenue has been made internationally). To date, the film is the only movie to cross $1 billion this year. ‘Guardians the of Galaxy’ has grossed $435.5 million worldwide to date. Marvel’s ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’ is currently North America’s highest grossing film of 2014 with a North American box office haul of $259.8 million. ‘Guardians’ will likely cross that mark next week.
