'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace
September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

Netflix Children’s Show Production Company Calls Penis Drawing ‘a Very Bad Joke’
Following a social media uproar that prompted Netflix to remove an episode of the children’s show “Maya the Bee” that included a drawing of what appeared to be a penis in the background, the French production company behind the cartoon has apologized.
“An absolutely inappropriate image has been discovered in a four-second fly-by scene in one episode of the total of 78 episodes of the series,” Studio 100 said in a statement obtained by Variety. “The origin of this image obviously results from a very bad joke from one of the 150 artists working on the production.”
The vulgar image was discovered by U.S. viewers who shared screenshots of the questionable scenes on social media. Parent Chey Robinson’s Facebook post of the offending clip from Season 1, Episode 35 of the show was among the first to go viral.

Colbert, Corden Do the Exact Same Lawrence O’Donnell Meltdown Gag (Videos)
Sometimes there are only so many ways to tackle a joke. Comedians often chalk up indistinguishable punchlines to “parallel thinking.” James Corden and his “Late Late Show” lead-in Stephen Colbert were victims of that last night, when both CBS late-night hosts performed the exact same gag in mockery of MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell’s recent meltdown. To be fair, both sketches were funny (though perhaps not as hilarious as the insane original) and the two shows tape on different coasts. This particular self-deprecation entry was also the obvious angle. Also Read: Lawrence O'Donnell Apologizes for On-Camera Meltdown (Video) In other words, »
