Walt Disney Studios(NEW YORK) -- Disney's Moana, featuring the voices of Auli'i Cravalho and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, continued its box office domination, finishing at number one for the second weekend in a row with an estimated $28.37 million.  That brings the animated fantasy's domestic total to just under $120 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

Image courtesy NBC(NEW YORK) -- President-elect Donald Trump is at it again, tweeting his dislike of Alec Baldwin's parody of him on Saturday Night Live -- and Baldwin didn't keep quiet.

"Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad," Trump tweeted shortly after midnight.

Baldwin tweeted in response about 15 minutes later: "Release your tax returns and I'll stop. Ha."


Release your tax returns and I'll stop.

Saturday's episode, which again featured SNL cast member Kate McKinnon as Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, poked fun at Trump's use of Twitter, his campaign promises, and his vanity.  The cold open began with a high school student in a classroom sharing that Trump retweeted him -- in reality, Trump did retweet a 16-year-old named Seth, who slammed CNN's coverage of Trump.

"Seth seems so cool," gushes Baldwin's Trump in his office. "His Twitter bio says he wants to make America great again. It also says he loves the Anaheim Ducks."

Trump senior counselor Stephen Bannon was also ridiculed during the cold open.  "Where is my chief strategist Steve Bannon? I can't start without Steve Bannon," says Baldwin's Trump.

Who walks in? An actor in a grim reaper costume.

And in a nod to Trump's vanity, something appears to grab the attention of Baldwin's Trump off-camera, and he asks McKinnon's Conway, "Wait -- is that the picture of me I hate? The one the press is using where I look so ugly?"

No," replies McKinnon's Conway, reaching off-camera to grab a dish, which she places before her: "That's just a plate of mashed potatoes."

United Artists/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Saturday, December 3, marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Rocky.

The 1976 film was made for around $1 million and ended up grossing $117 million domestically, taking home Best Picture at the Oscars the next year.  Not bad for Sylvester Stallone, a down-on-his-luck character actor with about $100 in the bank who wrote the movie in three days after watching a fight between Muhammad Ali and beleaguered brawler Chuck Wepner.

"I was watching the fight ... and I said to myself, 'Let's talk about stifled ambition and broken dreams and people who sit on the curb looking at their dreams go down the drain,'" Stallone told The New York Times 40 years ago.

Studios wanted Rocky, but they didn't want Stallone to headline the original underdog story. They offered him money, as much as $265,000 for just the script, yet he turned it down.

"I never would have sold it ... I'd rather bury it in the backyard and let the caterpillars play Rocky. I would have hated myself for selling out," he told The Times.

He finally got what he wanted though and put everything he and the crew had into the film.

"When we finally knew that Rocky was going to be made and I was going to play Rocky, I knew this wasn't only my shot, this was my life. Everything had to be perfect. I was hard on the crew when we were shooting -- they thought I was a miserable b****** -- but I had to give the movie my best shot," he told film critic Roger Ebert in 1976.

"People say Rocky is realistic, but I don't want realism, I want romance,” Stallone told Ebert all those years back.

Marvel - 2016(SAN PAULO) -- Although no footage has leaked, due to tight security, fans are buzzing about footage of Spider-Man: Homecoming that screened Friday at Brazil Comic-Con in San Paulo.

The snippet, said to be from the trailer that will first be seen officially running before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is being described by people who were there to witness it, including Ryan Penagos, the Vice President and Executive Editor, Marvel's Digital Media Group, who tweeted about it. 

Tom Holland, introduced as Peter Parker/Spider Man in Captain America: Civil War, is said to be seen receiving a suitcase from Tony Stark's bodyguard "Happy" Hogan, again played by Jon Favreau. 

The suitcase apparently contains another upgraded Spidey suit, courtesy of Robert Downey Jr.'s billionaire genius Stark/Iron Man, who appears in Homecoming, but apparently not the trailer.

The suit features a fan favorite feature -- Spidey's underarm "web wings," which others report he's seen using to fly through the air in an attack against The Vulture, the winged baddie played by Michael Keaton in the film. Penagos didn't mention that, but allowed, "That classic underarm webbing look was just so rad."

Spider-Man: Homecoming, which also stars Zendaya, Donald Glover, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, and Marisa Tomei, opens July 7, 2017.

Getty Images/Jonathan Leibson(SAO PAULO) -- Vin Diesel says he is still reeling, nearly three years to the day since he lost his dear friend Paul Walker. Walker died in a fiery car crash in 2013, a passenger in a Porsche driven by friend Roger Rodas, who also perished.   

"The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that," Diesel told Entertainment Tonight about Walker.

In fact, he spoke to ET at Brazil Comic-Con and said being there felt wrong, being that, "both times that I’ve been here, I’ve always been with my brother, Pablo. It was a lot of tissues and it was a hard morning for me yesterday because I was here," he said. 

"But the irony is the whole cast reached out and his daughter, Meadow, reached out and all that stuff helps you get through it.”

Diesel was in Brazil also promoting his new xXx movie, and said after finishing Furious 7 without Walker, this was a welcome change. Diesel had worked with Walker on the Furious franchise since it began 15 years ago.

"Never in my life did I need to do a movie where I could laugh and smile and enjoy myself more than right now, more than the time I made this movie," he said.

Karwai Tang/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, along with Broadway producers Colin Callender and Sonia Friedman, have announced plans that could bring the U.K. smash, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, to Broadway’s Lyric Theatre.

The 1,900-seat theatre, Broadway’s largest, is currently home to Cirque Du Soleil’s $25 million Broadway Paramour, which is slated to relocate after its final performance on April 16, 2017.

The Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), which owns The Lyric, plans a multi-million dollar renovation to reconfigure the theatre to create a more intimate -- but still impressive -- 1,500 seat venue.

In a joint statement announcing the plans, J.K. Rowling noted, "I’m delighted we are one step closer in bringing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Broadway and very excited by the proposed plans."

According to HarryPotterThePlay.com, the two-part, six-hour Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is sold out in the U.K. for most of the next two years; advanced sales have logged upwards of a record $50 million. The play finds Harry as an adult father of three, whose son Albus struggles with his family's magical legacy.

Getty Images/Dimitrios Kambouris(TORONTO) -- Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively welcomed their second daughter in September, but they still haven't revealed her name.

Reynolds once joked that he was going to name his firstborn "Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds."

He tells Canada's eTalk in a new interview, "I had [suggested] the same name, except with all the letters in the name being silent, which again was confusing for everyone. Especially me."

In all seriousness, he added, "We settled on the right one."  But again, he's not revealing what it is.

Reynolds, 40, and Lively, 29, are already parents to nearly two-year-old James, who's enjoying being a big sister.

"It was kind of profound," the actor says. "I just love watching my older daughter take care of the newborn. That's been kind of neat to see."

As for fatherhood, the Deadpool star says. "It's the best thing. You know, it's the best thing that could ever happen to you."

L-R: Caspar Phillipson as John F. Kennedy, Natalie Portman as Jackie Kennedy, Peter Sarsgaard as Bobby Kennedy; Pablo Larrain/Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation(NEW YORK) -- As if her Oscar for Black Swan weren't enough, in Jackie, Natalie Portman continues to prove that her performances in the Star Wars movies were a function of bad directing, not a reflection of her ability as a world-class actress.

Director Pablo Larrain takes a script written by Noah Oppenheim and pulls off a neat cinematic trick: he turns Jackie Kennedy, an icon of opulence, glamour and grace, into the tragic and heroic protagonist of a narrative steeped in neorealism and David Lynch-like surrealism.

We meet Jackie Kennedy a week after the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. She’s at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, where she greets a journalist (Billy Crudup) at the door. While Portman looks as poised and composed as we ever imagine Jackie Kennedy was or should be, her eyes, the quiver in her voice, and the way she smokes her cigarette suggest something otherwise.

Jackie proceeds to tells the story of the assassination.  Oppenheim’s script weaves that story via Kennedy’s first-hand account to the journalist, which includes graphic, sobering flashbacks to the assassination, and its immediate fallout.  There’s also a remarkable recreation of Jackie Kennedy’s famous live televised tour of the White House.

Through that lens, we get terrific performances from Peter Sarsgaard as Bobby Kennedy, and Greta Gerwig as Jackie’s assistant.  Caspar Phillipson makes an impressive JFK, and Billy Crudup’s performance as the unnamed journalist interviewing Jackie Kennedy -- firm one moment, fumbling and backtracking the next, almost cowering when Mrs. Kennedy calls him on the carpet -- is organic and up to the task.

This is Jackie Kennedy as we’ve never really seen her before -- raw as raw can be and doing everything she can, in the days following the worst moment of her life, to protect her husband’s legacy, knowing full well his flaws as a husband.

Even with its stylistic panache and a tour de force performance from Portman, Jackie drags in places, and manipulates in others where it doesn’t need to.  Nonetheless, it’s a stunning historical snapshot and nifty piece of filmmaking.

Four out of five stars.

Copyright © 2016, Vanguard Properties(SAN FRANCISCO) --  Talk about keeping it in the family: the original home used in Full House was sold to ... the show's creator.

The home was purchased in August, but at the time, the realtor declined to say who bought it. Well, surprise!

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Franklin, who created the famed 90s sitcom that starred John Stamos and Bob Saget, said he purchased the home in San Francisco to use in filming on the reboot Fuller House. He plans on renting the home at a later date.

It was on the market for more than $4 million.

"The house came on the market and really, I just thought, I have to buy this house," he told the magazine about the home used in filming three decades ago. "I'm so sentimental about the house. It's great to have the house in our Full House family and be able to preserve it for the fans."

Franklin said hundreds of fans come each day to take photos outside the home. Over the next few months, the home will be updated and brought to code, and the front door will be red once again, like on the show. Previous owners had changed it.

Full House aired from 1987 to 1995. Fuller House debuted on Netflix earlier this year.

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(MEXICO CITY) -- Passengers co-stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are known to be goofballs: while she's famous for photobombing her fellow stars, he's now turning the tables by pranking her subtly on Instagram.

The two celebs have been touring the world promoting their new sci-fi film, which hits theaters Dec. 25. On Wednesday, Pratt took a selfie with her, captioned, "Finally got that selfie with Jen y'all wanted. #passengersmovie."  However, he cropped her out of the pic.

In another photo, she's turned around, showing only her back.

A subsequent group shot has the two-time Oscar winning actress cropped mostly out; with this: photographic afterthought. "Here Jen and I pose with @elrubiuswtf," the Guardians of the Galaxy star wrote.

And in a video posted by Pratt, J-Law also is shown -- again, barely -- running out of frame to avoid being splashed by glasses of liquid held in place by physics as her co star swings them upside down.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Star and producer Tom Cruise took to Twitter Thursday morning to give fans their first peek of The Mummy, his reboot of the classic monster movie series.

In a teaser to the full trailer -- which will hit the Interwebs Sunday -- both Cruise and co-star Russell Crowe are shown, as is Sofia Boutella, who played Jaylah in Star Trek Beyond.  In this film, she plays Ahmahnet, the fearsome mummy.

"I saw her!" Cruis's character says of Ahmahnet. "She is real!" 

"Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters," a title card reads, hinting at Universal's hopes for a Marvel-like "shared universe" for some of the studio's oldest properties.  Another hint: Crowe plays Dr. Henry Jekyll, of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde fame.

The Mummy hits theaters June 9, 2017.
