The Good, The Bad & The Nerdy for March 19, 2018
Missed SNL this weekend? Former cast member Bill Hader hosted the show (was hilarious, as always) and brought with him numerous instant classic sketches, like the Jurassic Park “auditions” above. The Sinbad joke had me dying.
Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther held onto the box office for the fifth week in a row, bringing in $27 million. Black Panther crossed the $600 million threshold on its 31st day of release, becoming the second-fastest to reach that milestone after Star Wars The Force Awakens (12 days) and ahead of Jurassic World (36 days) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (37 days), Deadline reports.
Speaking of Black Panther, star Chadwick Boseman will host SNL on April 7th. Cardi B will be the musical guest
The $90 million reboot of Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander, meanwhile, brought in $23.5 million at the weekend box office, 8% higher than the second 2003 Tomb Raider film, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life starring Angelina Jolie, which raked in $21.7 million. Abroad, the film brought in much more, earning the top slot worldwide with $108 million. All-told, 78% of Tomb Raider’s bank came from theaters overseas.
A devoted Lego site called The Brick Fan recently posted a new image that confirms Lego The Incredibles is on the way, and scheduled for release “later this year”. You can see the image below, from a tweet posted by Jason Inquires:
Nickelodeon is rebooting Clarissa Explains It All with Melissa Joan Hart reprising the title role. The original series ran for five-seasons on Nickelodeon from 1991 to 1994 and starred Hart as Clarissa… a teenager who spoke directly to the audience as she dealt with problems including school, boys and family. Hart will reprise her role in the reboot only this time, she would play the mother of the family.
NBC has renewed the Will & Grace reboot for a third season.
Shia LaBeouf is going to star in a movie about himself but will be playing his dad in the film. The movie is called Honey Boy and it’s going to be a drama about young LaBeouf growing up with his troubled father. Lucas Hedges will play the young Shia.
