Two '2's too much for the rest
Despicable Me 2 held fast to the top spot in studio weekend box-office estimates. It took in $44.7 million, off 46 percent but still enough to hold off debut upstart Grown Ups 2 ($42.4 mils) in the battle of the 2s. The rest of the top 10: (3) Pacific Rim, debuting strong at $38.3 mils; (4) The Heat Fox, $14 mils; (5) The Lone Ranger, much maligned at $11 mils; (6) Monsters University , $10.6 mils; (7) World War Z, $9.4 mils; (8) White House Down, $6.1 mils; (9) Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, $5 mils; and (10) Man of Steel, melting at $4.8 mils.
Alice hates folk music, got that?
Handicap golfer and aged rocker Alice Cooper smacked Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers during a talk with Fuse. They ain't no rock bands, he says; get those flutes and accordions out of here! He prescribed steaks, not the vegetarian folkie diet, to "get some blood pumping in their system." Give him Green Day and the Foo Fighters any day!
