Box Office Tally
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever crushed it at the weekend box office. The sequel film raked in $330 million at the global box office for its opening weekend. In the U.S., its $180 million debut was good enough for the second-biggest opening  this year after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. When the first Black Panther film debuted, it went on to make more than $1.3 billion worldwide. Rounding out the top three spots over the weekend were Black Adam with $8.6 millio, and Ticket to Paradise with $6.1 million. 
'Pirates' Plot Pummeled
Apparently fans of the Disney produced Pirates of the Caribbean franchise have been swindled into thinking Margot Robbie would lead the next installment. She told Vanity Fair that a story that focused on a female lead was in development but assumed "they don't want to do it" after it fell through. Also, If you were hoping there was a chance for Johnny Depp to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, don't hold your breath. Depp reportedly said he would never return to the franchise after Disney severed ties with him amid abuse and sexual violence allegations levied by his ex-wife Amber Heard. A jury ultimately found that Depp was defamed by Heard.
Hulu's Big Upgrade
