JORDAN PEELE’S “US” PULLS IN $71 MILLION DURING OPENING WEEKEND

Jordan Peele’s new horror flick “Us” finished the weekend as the second best debut of the year to date, only behind Marvel’s “Captain Marvel.” Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE), reported that the $71.1 million “Us” pulled in over the weekend topped the $55 million opening the studio projected by 7%. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but most of the reviews I’ve read on social media have been positive. Check out the preview for Jordan Peele’s “Us” movie below.

SUGE KNIGHT PLEADS GUILTY TO VOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER. FACING 28-YEARS IN PRISON

LOS ANGELES, CA

Former Death Row co-founder, Suge Knight, is looking at, what’s known in jails and prisons across the country, as “football numbers”, after pleading guilty to a charge of manslaughter stemming from an incident that left one man dead.

Big Suge is looking down the barrel of a 28-year prison sentence when he goes back in front of a judge on October 4, to officially be sentenced. NBC News (@NBCNews) reports, Suge Knight’s latest legal troubles stem from a 2015 incident at a promotional shoot for the Straight Outta Compton movie. Knight ran over 2 men with his truck outside of Tam’s Burgers. Terry Carter, 55 and Cle “Bone” Sloan, 51 were plowed down as Knight recklessly reversed out of the parking lot. Carter died from his injuries. Sloan survived. Knight had originally argued that his life was in danger at the time and he had no intentions of running anyone over. Knight said Carter was a friend of his. Prosecutors argued otherwise. They say Knight had a confrontation with people affiliated with the movie earlier that same day, and had come back looking for trouble. On Thursday, Knight decided not to fight the case, and pled guilty to the manslaughter charge. He also requested a new attorney. When he goes back for sentencing in October, Knight will be represented by his fifteenth (15) different lawyer since this trial started.

At 53-years old, a 28-year prison sentence is something I don’t see Suge coming home from. 28-years is a long time….unless there’s some parole involved. If this in fact, the end of the line for Suge Knight, it is a very strange ending to a story that involved the man who played a huge role in arguably the best era of music hip-hop has ever seen. Not really a surprising ending, considering all of the dirt Suge was alleged to have done in his lifetime, but……strange.
