Guardians Back on Top: Weekend Box Office Roundup

Guardians of the Galaxy is back on top! The Marvel movie is now the top grossing film of the summer, passing Transformers: Age of Extinction. Other than that, this weekend’s box office is nothing new. It’s basically the same as last week. It has Guardians and TMNT on top with a bunch of new movies failing to match. If I Stay, When the Game Stands Tall, and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For all premiered this week, but none of them managed to get to the top. The long anticipated Sin City sequel did the worst out of all three newcomers, barely making over six million.

Did you see any movies this weekend? Do you think Guardians and TMNT are good enough to be on top of the box office for this long?

Under Armour has unveiled its new commercial for their new line. The slogan is “I will what I want.” That is exactly what Misty Copeland shows, Being only one of three of African-American women to be an American Ballet Theater Soloist. She had defeated a lot of adversity and shown that through persistence, anything is possible. From a young age, Misty had the odds against her. Starting to practice ballet from the age of thirteen, when most girls typically started years younger than that. She also faced criticism about her body type. In addition to all that, she faced battles with her parents and teachers and still she did not let that stop her from her dream. In this very moving commercial, Misty is seen on stage and then as a song plays a letter of rejection is being read and coincidentally it matches the struggles Misty went through when becoming a ballerina. All while she dances beautifully, truly showing why she is ranked as one of the best ballerinas. This is definitely a strong message to show girls to never let anything or anyone stop you from chasing your dream and believing you can do it if you try hard enough!

New Music: Chris Brown’s ‘X’

Chris Brown is back with X! The Diplo produced song also doubles as the title track for Brown’s new studio album. This song is a departure from Brown’s typical sound. X features more EDM inspired beats instead of Brown’s typical pop/R&B sound.

On the track, Brown sings about a girl deceiving him and Brown promises that he’s “moving on” and “not going back no more.” While he hasn’t commented on who the song is about, we’re guessing that his on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran has some influence. The two have had their ups and downs, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if this highly publicized relationship was the influence for the song.

elizabeth-vargas-600Elizabeth Vargas is once again back in rehab. The anchor of 20/20 first revealed her struggle with alcoholism back in November 2013. She has made the decision to enroll herself back into treatment. Vargas claims in a statement, ” “As so many other recovering alcoholics know, overcoming the disease can be a long and incredibly difficult process. I feel I have let myself, my co-workers and most importantly my family down and for that I am ashamed and sorry.” Vargas made the decision to enter herself into this program after she realized she had a problem with drinking to deal with her anxiety attacks. She has not said a time limit on how long she will be there but says it is until she feels she is sober and that is her sole purpose. ABC News along with her colleagues are standing behind her while she recovers and heals herself in treatment. We look forward to seeing her back on 20/20 very soon.
