Ready Player One Wins The Box Office By Bringing In One Of Easter Weekend’s Biggest Openings EVER!

This weekend was a BIG one for Ready Player One, marking director Steven Spielberg‘s biggest opening in more than a decade!

The Warner Bros. movie took in a nationwide $ 41.2 million over the Easter holiday weekend in its first full weekend out in theaters — making it the Easter holiday’s BIGGEST opening EVER for a non-sequel!

Not only that, but when you include the four-day totals from the longer weekend with last Thursday, since Ready Player One launched a day early, you get a grand four-day total of $ 53.2 million — already much better than expected for the Spielberg flick!

It isn’t a moneymaker yet, of course — the film’s hefty production budget of $ 175 million before marketing will weigh it down for quite a while — but it fared very well in theaters this weekend all things considered.

Overseas, Ready Player One did more than $ 128 million in total — including about $ 61.7 million from China alone — to open to a grand total global debut of $ 181.2 million through the first weekend in total. WOW!!!

That makes it Spielberg’s biggest movie (and biggest domestic opening) since Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took in an opening $ 100.1 million more than a decade ago.

This also gives Ready Player One the second-biggest opening of the year so far behind Black Panther — not bad company in which to find oneself!!!

Falling in behind the popular new release this weekend were Tyler Perry‘s Acrimony, which took second place with just over $ 17 million at the box office.

Another new release disappointed quite a bit — religious-themed God’s Not Dead 3 finished in twelfth at the box office this week, which was WAY below expectations, taking in just $ 2.6 million from 1,693 theaters nationwide.

What about y’all, Perezcious readers!? What’d U go see in theaters this weekend?

Roseanne Barr Claps Back At Wendy Williams For Bringing Up Ex Tom Arnold! WATCH!

Don’t mess with Roseanne!

On Wednesday’s episode of Wendy Williams‘ daytime talk show, the legendary comedian stopped by to discuss the highly anticipated reboot of her ’90s sitcom.

However, being the shade queen that she is, Miz Williams had to bring up the 65-year-old’s ex-husband Tom Arnold.

A day before the premiere, Arnold reviewed the show for The Hollywood Reporter and actually gave it a good write-up despite the fact that Barr “pulled [his] hair transplants [out] immediately after surgery” and said he “had a 3-inch penis on SNL.”

Despite the somewhat positive critique, Roseanne was not in the mood to talk about her former flame, as they are not in a good place.

The two actors were married from 1990-94.

Jill Duggar: Criticized For Bringing Baby on Dangerous Trip!

If you follow her on social media, then you’re likely aware that Jill Duggar is often criticized for her parenting.

Sometimes the complaints are truly asinine, such as the time fans got up in arms because Jill put a tortilla on her baby’s head.

On many other occasions, however, the gripes were more legitimate, such as the time Jill was accused of endangering her children by allowing them to play near a freeway.

We guess the latest complaint falls somewhere in the middle – a bit more serious than “Mexican food as fashion accessory” but not quite as severe as “human Frogger.”

As you may recall, Jill and her husband Derick Dillard perform missionary work from time to time.

Or at least they did, until the allure of reality TV stardom lured them back home to Arkansas.

Now that Derick has been fired from Counting On and Jill has quit the show as a misguided gesture of solidarity, the Dillards have a lot more time on their hands.

Jill and Derick haven’t formally announced that they’re once again traveling abroad in hopes of winning converts, but fans noticed the couple appears in a recent photo posted by their church, which seems to suggest the Dillards are once again headed south of the border.

“Pray with us for our group heading to Guadalajara today,” reads the caption on the photo above.

The trip won’t be as long as Jill and Derick’s previous excursion, which lasted the better part of a year.

It was advertised on the Cross Church’s website as a weeklong trip, but there it seems some members of the congregation are planning to stay a bit longer.

“The week will be filled with street evangelism and building relationships to share the gospel as we help Vida Church continue reaching Guadalajara,” reads the ad.

Jill and Derick have been widely praised for their philanthropic efforts, but they’ve taken their fair share of criticism for their latest trip, as well.

For one thing, the Dillards are not licensed missionaries, a fact they received some harsh criticism for during their previous two travels.

Despite having plenty of time to do so, it does not seem that either Jill or Derick enrolled in a licensing course in the year since they returned to the States.

But the harshest complaints from fans had to do with Jill and Derick’s decision to bring their 8-month-old son Samuel on the trip.

(It does not appear that 2-year-old Samuel traveled with his parents.)

Guadalajara is commonly regarded as one of the most dangerous destinations in Mexico.

Just last month, the city was the scene of 23 murders over the course of 48 hours.

For obvious reasons, many are questioning the wisdom of the Dillards bringing their youngest son along, and some are likening it to Jill putting her son at risk for the Zika virus by remaining in afflicted areas while pregnant.

We guess the problem with criticizing the couple for every piece of ethnic cuisine they place on their son’s head is that they’re that much more likely to shrug it off when the world expresses a legitimate concern.

Chris Pratt Officially Files For Divorce From Anna Faris — Bringing Their Long Love Story To An End…

If you were holding out hope for Chris Pratt and Anna Faris after they announced their decision to separate in August, we’re sorry to say it’s time.

If Anna finding a new guy wasn’t final enough, Chris officially filed for divorce on Friday, according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy star cited irreconcilable differences for the split. Anna filed her response simultaneously, meaning they must have planned all this out.

Both parents list July 13 as their separation date, are asking joint custody of son Jack, and are not currently requesting spousal support. There was apparently a prenup in place, so that must be helping everything fall into place. It all sounds pretty amicable.

Which almost makes things a little sadder, right? After all, they were one of the absolute most adorable couples in Hollywood for eight years!

On this sad day, take a look back at their story (below)…

Here’s How The Kardashian-Jenners Reacted To Scott Disick Bringing Bella Thorne To Cannes…

So much dramz.

Scott Disick‘s jealousy over Kourtney Kardashian‘s blossoming relationship with Younes Bendjima was front and center during Sunday night’s showing of KUWTK. As was previously teased, Kourt revealed to sis Khloé Kardashian that Lord Disick threatened to beat up Younes if he accompanied Kardashian to Cannes.

Related: Kourtney Is ALL Legs At Her PrettyLittleThing Collab Launch!

We’re guessing these threats had something to do with the fact that Kourtney turned down her baby daddy’s offer to have an open relationship. Clearly, Scott isn’t getting the message that Kourtney is totally over him. Smh.

Anywho, in response to his baby momma’s indifference, Disick decided to bring Bella Thorne as his plus one to the South of France. While we learned about this short lived romance MONTHS ago, here’s how the KarJenners reacted to this “desperate” play…

At the time, Kim Kardashian West dramatically discussed the situation with Kendall Jenner over FaceTime. After the supermodel confirmed to her sister that Scott and Bella had indeed arrived at Cannes, Kim savagely noted:

“They looked so desperate at the airport… Who goes to LAX together? It’s not a good look for Scott.”

We mean, Keeks isn’t wrong. To make matters worse, Kenny also shared that Scott revealed he was doing all of this to piss off the mother of his kids. Like, that’s just disrespectful to both Kourtney AND Bella.

Jenner continued:

“He talked to me about it. He thinks it is and I said, ‘Are you nuts? Are you actually not well?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, I’m doing it to make Kourtney mad.’ I said, ‘You’re not going to make her mad for the right reasons.'”

*Sigh* Kim later perfectly summed up the drama as she explained:

“I think it’s clear to everyone that Scott’s doing this just to try to one-up Kourtney and that seems super malicious… Kourtney’s genuinely trying to go away and have a good time and he’s trying to like freak her out and make Kourtney think there’s going to be some crazy drama run-in. It’s just so ridiculous.”

What a sad situation. Not to mention, the 38-year-old is obviously over the back-and-forth with her ex. When KoKo told Kourtney that the “picture war” between the former flames was “like watching a ping pong match,” the mother-of-three shot back:

“Yeah, but it’s weird because I’m like not in the tournament.”

You tell ’em, Kourtney!! Other highlights from the episode include a sisterly visit to a Planned Parenthood AND Kimmie had drama with her assistant.

Be sure to get specifics by watching the recap video (above).

Prince Harry & GF Meghan Markle Reunite In London As The Actress Is Seen Bringing Groceries To Kensington Palace

Now this is serious!!

Meghan Markle was spotted coming-and-going as she pleased on Thursday from BF Prince Harry‘s Kensington Palace home, Nottingham Cottage.

The Suits star was photographed leaving a nearby Whole Foods before returning to the royal abode with two grocery bags. Maybe the two were planning to whip up a romantic dinner?!

The 35-year-old was dressed in a brown cap, leggings, and black rain boots.

We guess she’s taking a break from filming the sixth season of her USA show — as it is still currently in production in Toronto!

As we reported, while Meghan was out shopping, the 32-year-old prince was at the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey with his grandfather Prince Philip at a ceremony remembering those lost in battle.

On Saturday evening, the rest of the family — think: Queen Elizabeth, Princess Kate Middleton, and Prince William — are expected to attend the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

We wonder if Meg is preparing to make her official debut with the royals?!!?

Keeping our eyes peeled!
