Box Office Report — Transformers: The Last Knight Disappoints With A Franchise Low $69 Million

| Filed under: Film FlickersOops!Business Blitz

This may be the last night for the Transformers franchise after The Last Knight disappointed so badly at the box office this weekend…

Transformers: The Last Knight brought in just $69.1 million from 4,069 theaters across its five day debut at the North American box office this week.

Yikes! That's a franchise low — and it'll put serious doubt on whether the series has a legitimate future beyond this movie.

Hello… it is me you're looking for…

Lionel Richie seems to be the man of the hour for the folks over at American Idol: a new report out this morning alleges that he may in fact be the top pick for a judge spot on the show, to go alongside Katy Perry and an as-yet-unnamed third judge!

Really, though?!?!

Nothing against Richie — he's just… past his prime a bit?! Perry is a younger star, Ryan Seacrest obviously has that whole hosting thing down pat considering the original version of the show is where he got his start, but Lionel Richie?!?!?!?

It seems so… random???

But according to the report, it may not be random — and here's why:

Thankfully, somebody who actually knows what's going on gets to the bottom of it all…

Earlier today, the Internet blew up with news that Toy Story had a not-so-sweet backstory involving Andy's unseen father and the original Woody doll from the movies.

As the story went, Woody had actually belonged to Andy's father, who died well before his time and passed on Woody and the gang to Andy.

The full, detailed story — which you can hear all the specific details about (below) — set Disney and Pixar fans ablaze on social media:

Oops! Johnny Depp Reportedly Knew It Was Illegal To Smuggle His Dogs Into Australia Back In 2015

Is this one of the lies to authorities we've been hearing so much about with Johnny Depp???

Legal documents obtained by People allege that the former managers who worked with Depp — The Management Group (TMG) — apparently confirm that the actor himself was "fully aware" that he was illegally bringing his dogs into Australia two years ago.

You'll remember it was a massive controversy at the time, how Johnny was facing dog smuggling charges after failing to follow quarantine protocols in the country.

And while Johnny still maintains that he loves Australia despite the whole controversy, it increasingly sounds like he may have known what was going on — and that what he was doing was illegal — the entire time.

Part of the legal documents from TMG read (below):

Ryan Seacrest's American Idol Contract Negotiations Hit A Snag Over THIS Little Request!

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersAmerican IdolRyan SeacrestKaty PerryBusiness BlitzReality TV

Ryan hasn't signed his 'Idol' contract

Ryan Seacrest's contract for the American Idol reboot isn't a done deal yet!

As we previously reported, the TV personality has been offered somewhere between $10 and $15 million to once again host the celebrated singing competition. While new judge Katy Perry is making significantly more than the 42-year-old, *cough*$25 million*cough*, the industry vet isn't upset about his paycheck.

Reportedly, negotiations for Ryan's contract have reached a standstill over the fact that Seacrest wants an executive producer credit in addition to his host title. It's said Fremantle Media and Core Media are hesitant to hand over that title to Ryan and have been stuck in a stalemate over the issue for the last week. Yikes!

So far, it's unclear if Seacrest is trying to snag more day-to-day responsibilities. Although, we doubt that's the case as Ryan is already spread pretty thin thanks to his Live! gig, radio show, production company, etc.

Nonetheless, as the producers are still scrambling to lock in another judge (potentially Lionel Richie), we're sure they'll cave and give Ryan what he's asking for. We mean, it's hard to imagine Idol WITHOUT Seacrest!

Wait, Johnny Depp's Management Knew Of His Alleged Assaults On Amber Heard?

| Filed under: Legal MattersJohnny DeppBusiness BlitzAmber HeardViolenceBreakups

New details revealed!

Wow. It seems like things are about to get worse for Johnny Depp.

Amid his legal battle with his former business managers, The Mandel Group, newly released documents about the star have been revealed — and they allege the claims about Johnny assaulting ex-wife Amber Heard are entirely true.

The docs reveal the Pirates of the Caribbean's staff and security were aware he had "sometimes 'gotten physical'" with the actress, and included a time when he "violently kicked" her in 2014!

Additionally, in an attempt to show Depp has been lying to the public, TMG claims those text messages made public between Depp's assistant and Amber were indeed "genuine." Except the A-lister "pressured" his assistant to say they were fake.

TMG continues in the docs, adding the 54-year-old has even lied to "authorities" — though there are no details in relation to what:
