IN THEATERS THIS WEEKEND:
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (Action)
WHAT'S IT ABOUT? The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
WHO'S IN IT? Robert Downey Junior, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt
- The producers and directors won't say how many superheroes are in the film. Even the stars don't know. Chris Hemsworth thinks it's 76, while Paul Bettany says he was told it's 32. (BBC)
- Tom Holland wasn't allowed to read the entire script because producers were afraid he'd leak spoilers. The actor, who plays Spider-Man, is supposedly terrible at keeping secrets.
- The movie is on pace to have one of the biggest opening weekends of all-time. Some estimates have it earning $235 million. Star Wars: The Force Awakens holds the record with $248 Million.
• Britney Spears will launch a lifestyle collection next year that will include apparel, hair care, accessories and electronics
• She'll be personally involved in all aspects of the new line.
Church Holds “Beyonce Mass” And It Was Packed -
A Church in San Francisco tried something new and it really worked.
Grace Episcopal Cathedral opened its doors for a Beyonce mass including a sermon based on the San Francisco Theological Seminary’s Beyonce and The Hebrew Bible course.
Over 900 people showed up for the unique service. Music for the mass featured Beyoncé and her former group Destiny’s Child, starting with the girl group’s hit “Survivor.” Logan McWilliams sang “Listen” from the film “Dreamgirls” with an expanded version of the Vine choir and band. The church was lit up in rock concert lighting.
The good news is, the idea much like Beyonce’s songs, was a hit.

*Double Dare - Nickelodeon is rebooting classic kids’ game show Double Dare (again) this summer with a 40-episode order. Nick has yet to announce a host or other talent, though the Viacom cable channel says its new version will “feature appearances from blasts from the past, long-time Double Dare fans and stars from today.” In case you missed the ’80s and ’90s game show or its 2000 revival, Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy, physical stunts and ultimately facing the infamous obstacle course: The human hamster wheel, the classic gigantic mouth, the wringer and the iconic Double Dare nose, per Nick’s official description.
