Overboard
Kate (Anna Faris) is a single, working-class mother of three who's hired to clean a luxury yacht that belongs to Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez), a selfish, spoiled and wealthy Mexican playboy. After unjustly firing Kate, Leonardo falls off the boat and wakes up with no memory of who he is. To get payback, Kate shows up at the hospital and convinces the confused amnesiac that they're married. As Leonardo tries to get used to manual labor and his new family, Kate starts to wonder how long she can keep fooling her fake husband. A cute and funny remake of the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell fan favorite.

The Buzz...

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is still making history nearly two months after it first opened in theaters. The Disney and Marvel superhero tentpole passed up James Cameron's Titanic on Saturday to rank as the third top grossing title of all time at the North American box office behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and Avatar ($760.5 million), not adjusted for inflation.

CBS has renewed praised comedy series Mom for a sixth season. The pickup makes it a clean sweet for top comedy producer Chuck Lorre, with all three of his CBS shows already renewed for next season five weeks before the May upfronts. Mom joins veteran The Big Bang Theory, which will be headed into its 12th season, and hot newcomer, Big Bang spinoff Young Sheldon, which was renewed for Season 2.

If you work in Hollywood and are rolling your eyes at Avengers mania, Zoe Saldana is calling you out. In an interview with British fashion site Net-a-Porter, Saldana says that shes been looked down upon by some people in Hollywood for working on superhero movies and blockbuster fare. She says she hates that mentality, and feels shes providing just as important a contribution to cinema as any prestige film by giving children a figure to look up to.

Sons Of Apollo, the supergroup featuring former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Guns N Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big) and Jeff Scott Soto (Journey, Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force) have released their highly anticipated and critically acclaimed debut album Psychotic Symphony, and are heading out on a round of headlining tour dates.

Bryce Dallas Howard is ready to get paid what shes worth. The Jurassic World: Fallen World star, 37, appears on the cover of Redbooks May issue, and opened up to the magazine about how the #TimesUp movement inspired her to negotiate better wages. Ive been [wimpy] about it in the past, she admitted. I didnt want people to think I wasnt grateful for opportunities.

With a $50 million debut, Paramount's A Quiet Place finished atop the weekend box office in impressive fashion and while Universal's Blockers didn't deliver even half of what A Quiet Place did, the film's $21 million debut was a solid start for the low budget R-rated comedy.

After beginning its quest in 62 markets last weekend, Warner Bros Village Roadshow's Ready Player One maintained the high score at the international box office, grossing $81.7M to lead the chart this session. That sets the Steven Spielberg pic on track for $300M overseas and $400M global in the coming days.

The location managers responsible for the settings of the films Dunkirk and Baby Driver and the television shows Game of Thrones and Ozark won the top awards on Saturday night from the Location Managers Guild International, which presented its fifth annual awards at the Alex Theatre in Glendale.

As usual, Helen Mirren is right. The Oscar winner recently voiced her dismay at the lack of stunt recognition at the Oscars, and most people agree there should be little golden statues for stunt work.

The Beatles classic 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine is getting a re-release in theaters across the U.S., in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

There are plenty of fans out there that remember the 1990s film Empire Records. The film starred Renee Zellweger, among others, as part of an ensemble cast and it became a film that is now widely considered a cult classic. Fans of the movie are excited to learn that in a few years, they will be able to relive the magic in the form of a Broadway musical.

Jay and Silent Bob are going to be returning to a new Vr series that will be featured on an app that allows people to see through Bobs eyes as he goes on one misadventure after another with Jay.

Viacom has come forth with a counter proposal seeking a $2.8 billion increase in what CBS has offered for the media company.
