Box office preview: Kingsman, Lego Ninjago to slay It

Though Pennywise has earned a pretty penny at the domestic box office, on Thursday becoming the highest-grossing horror film of all time (unadjusted for inflation), a slew of strong newcomers are set to storm the box office block, ready to burst his little red balloon as the Warner Bros./New Line title enters its third week in wide release.
Between Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, and It, who will come out on top? Check out EW’s Sept. 22-24 weekend box office predictions below.
1 – Kingsman: The Golden Circle – $38 million 
Having bagged a solid $3.4 million from Thursday night previews, the Kingsman sequel’s new cast (Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum join the fun for the second go-round) have likely infused the series with a jolt of fresh energy. While critics haven’t responded (it stands at a 49 percent on Rotten Tomatoes with an average score of 5.3/10), audiences don’t seem to care; the film’s midweek haul tops the similarly targeted John Wick: Chapter 2‘s $2.2 million Thursday take, and that film went on to gross just over $30 million over its premiere weekend.

Verizon Backtracks Slightly In Plan To Kick Customers Off Network

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Verizon Wireless is giving a reprieve to some rural customers who are scheduled to be booted off their service plans, but only in cases when customers have no other options for cellular service. Verizon recently notified 8,500 customers in 13 states that they will be disconnected on October 17 because they used roaming data on another network. But these customers weren't doing anything wrong -- they are being served by rural networks that were set up for the purpose of extending Verizon's reach into rural areas. Today, Verizon said it is extending the deadline to switch providers to December 1. The company is also letting some customers stay on the network -- although they must switch to a new service plan. "If there is no alternative provider in your area, you can switch to the S (2GB), M (4GB), 5GB single-line, or L (8GB) Verizon plan, but you must do so by December 1," Verizon said in a statement released today. These plans range from $35 to $70 a month, plus $20 "line fees" for each line. The 8,500 customers who received disconnection letters have a total of 19,000 lines. Verizon sells unlimited plans in most of the country but said only those limited options would be available to these customers.

Walmart Wants To Deliver Groceries Straight To Your Fridge

New submitter Rick Schumann writes: Walmart has a new marketing idea: "Going to the store? No one has time for that anymore," Walmart says. They want to partner with a company called August Home, who makes smart locks, so a delivery service can literally deliver groceries right into your refrigerator -- while you watch remotely on your phone. Great, time-saving idea, or super-creepy invasion of your privacy? You decide. Here's how the company says it would work:

1. Place an order on Walmart.com for groceries or other goods.
2. A driver for Deliv -- a same-day delivery service -- retrieves items when the order is ready, and brings them to the customer's home.
3. If no one answers, the delivery person can use a one-time passcode that's been pre-authorized by the customer to open the home's smart lock.
4. The customer receives a smartphone notification when the delivery is occurring, and can choose to watch it all play out in real-time on home security cameras through a dedicated app.
5. Delivery person leaves packages in the foyer, then brings the groceries to the kitchen, unloads them into the fridge, and leaves.

North Korea May Test H-Bomb on Pacific

North Korea said on Friday it might test a hydrogen bomb on the Pacific Ocean after U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to destroy the country, with leader Kim Jong Un promising to make a "mentally deranged" Trump pay dearly for his threats. Kim, who has traded ever-more heightened rhetoric with Trump, did not specify what his response would be. His comments were believed to be the first direct message ever issued by a North Korean leader. However, Kim's foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, said North Korea could consider a hydrogen bomb test of an unprecedented scale on the Pacific Ocean.

mother! poster depicting bruised Jennifer Lawrence slammed as 'gross, 'tawdry'

mother! isn’t done dividing audiences.
A new poster for the Jennifer Lawrence film landed online Friday seeking to capitalize on the polarizing nature of the Darren Aronofsky project (which scored strong reviews from critics but received an F Cinemascore from audiences during its opening weekend). Instead, the poster created more controversy due to its depiction of Lawrence’s battered face.
On Twitter, many were horrified by the poster’s use of an image of an abused woman as a marketing tool, calling the artwork “heinous,” “gross,” and a “tawdry display.” One journalist wrote, “I don’t care what you think of the movie, the fact that a woman gets beat up in it shouldn’t be the selling point.”
Paramount, which distributed the film and recently defended it as “audacious” and “bold,” did not immediately respond to request for comment.
