  • The box office has a new king and his name is John Wick. The third installment of the hyper violent Keanu Reeves franchise has taken the top spot at the North American box office and ended the three-week reign of 'Avengers: Endgame.' Studios on Sunday say 'John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum' has grossed an estimated $57 million in its opening weekend. 'Avengers: Endgame' slid to second place in its fourth weekend with $29.4 million. Domestically, it's now second only to 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' 'Pokémon Detective Pikachu' placed third with $24.8 million and 'A Dog's Journey' opened in fourth with an underwhelming $8 million. The young adult adaptation 'The Sun Is Also a Star' fizzled in its debut, grossing only $2.6 million and landing in eighth place.
  • The creepy, unsettling image of the “Momo challenge” will be coming to the big screen, according to one report. Deadline reported that “Getaway,” a horror film directed by Lilton Stewart III, will follow a group of teens on their last summer vacation before college who end up secluded in a cabin. >> Read more trending news  “In ghost story fashion, one tells the story of the urban legend, MOMO, a strange spirit of a bird-like woman that taunts its victims with specific personal details and violent commands via text message and phone calls,” Deadline reported. “What starts out as a harmless prank soon turns more sinister over the next 24 hours as the teens start disappearing without any motive or pattern.” The urban legend is inspired by the viral internet hoax that made the rounds last year. Related: What is the ‘Momo challenge’ and is it a hoax? Despite endless media coverage and local law enforcement warnings on social media of the supposed internet challenge, there were no verified cases of the “challenge” or people being harmed because of the game. “We’ve seen no recent evidence of videos promoting the Momo Challenge on YouTube,”  the video platform said on Twitter in February 2019. “Videos encouraging harmful and dangerous challenges are against our policies.”
  • DJ Khaled has released the music video for his single “Higher,” which stars John Legend and the late rapper Nipsey Hussle. The song comes from the producer-DJ’s new album “Father of Asahd.” >> Read more trending news  Billboard reported that the video, directed by Eif Rivera, starts with a tribute to Hussle, who died after he was shot outside his now-shuttered The Marathon Clothing brick-and-mortar store March 31. The video, TMZ reported, is the last one Hussle shot. Behind-the-scenes video obtained by the tabloid site shows Legend, Hussle and Khaled standing on top of a parking structure with a piano and retro cars in shades of blue. Khaled said in a statement Wednesday that the video footage was shot days before Hussle died. Legend reflected on shooting the music video after news broke of Hussle’s death. “Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years. It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend, Nipsey Hussle,” the statement said. “Just days prior, he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, ‘Higher.’ After much prayer and reflection, and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world. “The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher; level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul. It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-workers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from 'Higher' to Nipsey's children, Emani and Kross. “The Marathon Continues.” Watch the music video on YouTube and see a teaser below.
  • Some stars and directors come to the Cannes Film Festival by boat, others by private jet. Michael Angelo Covino and Kyle Marvin pretty much cycled their way into Cannes. Covino's 'The Climb,' in which he and Marvin star as lifelong friends, opens on a French mountain. One of the breakout films at Cannes this year, it uses long, fluid takes to capture comic moments in a male friendship that develops over many years and hundreds of miles on their bikes. Mike and Kyle (their characters share their names) are slowly peddling their way uphill when Mike informs Kyle that he has slept with Kyle's fiance. Their argument plays out while they huff up the mountain. Kyle isn't the fittest cyclist, so he's dealing with heartbreak and the steep incline at the same time. Covino shot the scene — one of the funniest and most memorable of the festival — in the French Alps just 30 minutes north of Cannes, where 'The Climb' premiered Friday night in the festival's Un Certain Regard competition, which often highlights stories told in non-traditional ways. 'The Climb' started as an eight-minute short with a similar opening scene, filmed in California. But Covino, an actor making his feature film directing debut, became convinced that the feature version should be set in France after a trip to the festival two years ago. 'I don't want to say it was intentional but it was definitely like, 'Hey, let's go shoot the opening of the movie right outside of Cannes,'' Covino said, chuckling, in an interview alongside Marvin. But it's more than local flavor that earned them a selection in Cannes. 'The Climb' has been among the most acclaimed American films here. After the bravura opening scene, the movie proceeds to tenderly chart the up-and-down friendship of Mike and Kyle in chapters that span marriage, death and children. Like biking in the Alps, their friendship is a test of endurance. For the director, that included filming a dramatic scene on a lengthy bike climb in one unbroken 10-minute span that took more than 20 takes to get right. Marvin's pedal fell off on one take. On take 18, Covino sprained his ankle. Before arriving at the festival this year, Covino and Marvin took a bike trip back to the film location site. You would think the ride would be easier without pages of dialogue to act out, but it wasn't. 'It's still a very exhausting climb,' Covino says. 'I was like, 'This is way harder than I remember it,'' says Marvin. They kept riding on a 60-kilometer (37-mile) trip up and down the French Riviera coastline, their own festival warm-up. 'We did the inaugural Tour de Cannes,' says Covino. Covino and Marvin, who co-wrote the film, first met each other about 10 years ago while acting in commercials. 'The Climb' pulls from other friendships but also their own. Covino is a cycling enthusiast but Marvin, when they made the short film, had hardly ever been on a bike. Yet for the feature, Marvin needed to be in good enough biking shape to make it up the mountain two dozen times. Now he rides avidly. 'In the short, Kyle wasn't acting. But in the feature, he was,' says Covino. Although 'The Climb' shifts back to New York's Hudson River valley, it has deeper French connections than just location. Covino says he was inspired by French films, including those of Eric Rohmer and Claude Sautet. The two Americans hope 'The Climb,' is a funny, true portrait of male friendship that goes beyond the limitations of 'bromance' movies. 'Some movies I love, but there's a tongue-in-cheekness to it,' says Covino. 'It's like: 'We're straight but we love each other but we're straight and we're still cool.' That just was of no interest to us. This is a love story about friendship. They genuinely just care about each other.' ___ Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAP

  • Two men are behind bars facing charges of inducing panic after allegedly surfing on the swollen Great Miami River. >> Read more trending news  Passersby spotted the men in the water shortly before 5 p.m. Saturday. Andrew S. Cook Jr., 25, and Garrett M. Pickiering, 26, said they also had asked someone to call for help after they apparently fell into the river in the area of State Route 47 and Port Huron Drive. “We had prepared for a water rescue,” Sgt. Joel Howell, of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, said. “We weren’t exactly sure if they were in the water.” Deputies received word that the pair, who were wet and carrying an oar, were just south of town. “They ended up going to jail for inducing panic, the reason being they left after asking somebody to call for help for them,” said Howell, who added that Cook and Pickiering apparently admitted to seeing at least one deputy respond. Cook and Pickiering were each booked into the Shelby County Jail on suspicion of inducing panic. They await Monday morning court dates, according to online records. Howell said the river is especially dangerous because it is flooded over the banks, full of debris and has a swift current.
