    Among the many lasting cultural changes this pandemic is poised to bring about will be serious shifts in the entertainment industry. China started reopening its dormant movie theaters just as the U.S. box office “hit zero for the first time” last weekend. The lights were back on at only 5 percent of the country’s cinemas, and ticket sales were paltry. Now they’re dark again. As of Wednesday, more than 26,000 AMC employees were laid off or furloughed, including all 600 members of the China-owned theater chain’s corporate staff.Among the many lasting cultural changes this pandemic is poised to bring about...

    America is in crisis, but the celebrities are thriving. They are beaming into our homes, reminding us to stay indoors and stay positive, as were all in this together. When I watch their selfie public service announcements, I find my attention drifting to the edges of the frame: to the understated wall molding visible behind Robert DeNiros shoulder; to the Craftsman beams on Priyanka Chopras balcony; to the equine wallpaper framing Zo Kravitzs crackling fireplace. Staying home is my superpower, the Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot reported from her walk-in closet. Ryan Reynolds urged his fans to work together to...

U.K. paper the Sun reported Thursday night that the couple took a private flight with their 10-month-old baby Archie to the L.A. area and plan to set up a new, permanent home in Hollywood; the paper also helpfully supplied a list of new neighbors who are also friends, like Victoria and David Beckham and James Corden.

    Mulan star Tzi Ma is frequently recognized for his many film and television roles, including in last years indie hit The Farewell and the Rush Hour films. But it was an encounter weeks ago that has stayed with him. Ma had visited a Whole Foods grocery store in Pasadena, Calif., when a car approached him as he made his way to the entrance. He rolls down the window and goes, You should be quarantined, and then he took off, Ma told Variety. He said he stood, speechless, before unleashing screams at the verbal assaulter, who was by then long gone....

    Brenna Coogle frequented the Paramount Drive-In as a child growing up in Lakewood but hadnt been there in about 30 years. On Tuesday night, however, she visited it for the first time in decades to take in a showing of Pixar Animation Studios Onward with her 9-year-old son and friends. Moments before previews began, Coogle stood near her car under a darkening sky and considered how the coronavirus had upended daily life. She said the widening pandemic made her feel she couldnt go most places including a conventional movie theater and she yearned for a distraction. So, Day...

The presidents words are juxtaposed with a graph that seemingly depicts the rapid rise of cases in the United States. LIAR-IN-CHIEF, Messing began her tweet. #Maga have...

    Thanks to blaring headlines and the 24-hour news cycle, avoiding news of the coronavirus is difficult. That is, unless youre silently meditating in the desert far from civilization. That is, unless youre Jared Leto. The actor was self-isolating, before it was recommended by governments and health experts. Leto had taken a break from the world and retreated to the desert for some quiet time only to emerge 12 days later to a wildly changed world facing the pandemic. He took to Instagram to express his feelings. Wow. Twelve days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert, Leto wrote...

    Things change fast in the time of coronavirus. But as public spaces closed down this week across the country over fears of the viral pandemic, moviegoers were still buying tickets to see the latest new releases, albeit at softer numbers than expected. Going into the Friday the 13th weekend, audiences will keep last week's box office winner "Onward" at #1 as three new wide-release challengers enter a precarious frame. The well-reviewed animated adventure will handily win the top slot in its second week according to early industry projections following Friday matinees. Still, the Disney and Pixar title is estimated to...

MSNBC Hopes Americans Dying From Coronavirus Will Take Down Trumps Presidency WALLACE: We gave them a proof point that we were indeed, incompetent. And also people died. I mean this has the makings structurally of the same kind of moment.
