Vevers Creates Special Imagery to Kick Off Darker Disney Collab

Stuart Vevers’ obsession with Disney continues.
To promote the launch of his Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale collection, which goes live on May 14, the creative director of Coach has created a wide assortment of images that speak to what the brand is calling the “spooky undertones and the tension of nostalgic Disney animations.”
That translates into images of poisoned apples, floating eyes and spooky castles inspired by the darker side of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Sleeping Beauty” that Vevers used on retro T-shirts, moto jackets, hoodies, sneakers, fanny packs and bags. The images will be used online and in stores.
“I have always loved Disney — both the movies and the fantasy worlds created that have captured my imagination for many decades,” Vevers said. “It was fun to explore the darker side of these stories and mix Disney’s nostalgic charm with Coach’s creativity to bring my memories from these fairy tales to life within our world of accessories and ready-to-wear. The Disney spirit truly reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach.”
This marks the third collaboration between Coach and Disney and the collection will launch on Monday in Coach stores and online. Select

‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Beats ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ At The Box Office

Costumed avengers, a billionaire with a kinky side, and a brutally efficient hit man proved to be just the tonic for an ailing domestic box office.

”The Lego Batman Movie” bested “Fifty Shades Darker” at the multiplexes over the weekend, earning a robust $ 55.6 million to capture first place. “Fifty Shades Darker,” the sequel to 2015’s “Fifty Shades of Grey,” couldn’t quite match its predecessor’s $ 85.2 million launch. It had to settle for a still sizable $ 46.8 million debut and second place on the box office chart.

Not to be outdone, Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 2,” a followup to 2015’s “John Wick,” picked up a smashing $ 30 million. That’s more than double what the first film racked up during its debut. The headlines will inevitably be about “Fifty Shades Darker” and “The Lego Batman Movie,” but the “John Wick” follow-up’s numbers are more impressive. It grew its audience substantially, adding more female viewers to the mix. Like “Pitch Perfect” and “Austin Powers,” both of which saw a major increase in ticket sales between their first and second installment, “John Wick” has now made a case for itself as a certifiable franchise.

“The interest in it will spread out more,” predicted Carpou. “With next weekend being a holiday, it gives us a chance to have repeat business.”

Universal’s “Split” surrendered the first place it had occupied for three consecutive weekends to the barrage of newcomers. The hit thriller took in $ 9.3 million to capture fourth place on the chart, while pushing its domestic haul to $ 112.3 million.

Fox’s “Hidden Figures” rounded out the top five, earning $ 8 million. The Oscar-nominated drama about African-American NASA employees fighting racial prejudice in the early days of the space program has made $ 131.4 million stateside.

In milestone news, Universal and Illumination’s “Sing” topped $ 500 million globally. The animated film about a talent competition has launched a new animated franchise for the studios.

On the indie front, Fox Searchlight’s “A United Kingdom” opened in four theaters, grossing $ 70,000 for a per-screen average of $ 17,500. The drama chronicles a love affair between the King Seretse Khama of Botswana (David Oyelowo) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), a white woman from London, and the controversy it sparked.

The Weinstein Company’s “Lion” continued to chug along in its twelfth weekend, seeing its numbers rise even as it lost 68 screens. The drama about a man who uses Google Earth to find his long lost family in India grossed $ 4.1 million to push its domestic returns above $ 30 million. David Glasser, the company’s COO, argued that the story, which touches on immigration, has struck a nerve in a political climate dominated by talk of travel bans from certain countries. India is not one of the country’s targeted by the Trump administration, but “Lion” star Sunny Pawar, a native of the country, did have trouble getting permission to enter the U.S. for the film’s premiere.

“This is a zeitgeist movie,” he said. “As people discover it, you wouldn’t believe the emails that are pouring in. Every day we wake up to notes from politicians, tennis players, even a woman I know from Middle America all saying this couldn’t be more timely.”

Overall ticket sales did slide, and were unable to match the year-ago period, a weekend that saw the $ 132.4 million debut of “Deadpool.” Still, analysts note that weekend was President’s Day, a holiday that’s been pushed back by a week in 2017, making comparisons difficult. Some box office sages predicted that this will be the start of a torrid run at the multiplexes, one that will ultimately eclipse the high-water mark established last year.

”This is the true kickoff of what could be the biggest year ever,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. “This weekend is the star of our record run.”

The Brighter Side of a Darker Thing

The Brighter Side of a Darker Thing

The Brighter Side of a Darker Thing is a testimony of one woman’s journey of healing from sexual abuse. Kathy Leigh Berkowitz takes a final step toward her healing in the public telling of her life and her recovery from her past, ending with a bold resolve to continue sharing her story, in hopes that others likewise may find healing. Fallout from abuse often leaves behind broken pieces of a shattered self-esteem and many questions about “the why.” The author explores her own feelings and shares her innermost thoughts, while encouraging the reader with Scriptures to allow the Holy Spirit to do His perfect work, the strengthening of the inner soul. Kathy Leigh also faced numerous other challenges, including the death of her baby sister, her mother’s mental illness, her father’s post-traumatic stress disorder, time spent in a Texas orphanage, poverty, and suicidal thoughts. The Brighter Side of a Darker Thing includes triumphant moments, her awards for various high school beauty pageants, the births of her four children, and the eventual path that led her to a full-time career in journalism. The Brighter Side of a Darker Thing is proof that a person’s past doesn’t define who they are, and that no matter the pain, there is hope and healing in Jesus. It is the author’s belief that healing from sexual abuse is a lifelong journey, but along the way, there will be much cause to celebrate, especially when one walks through the portal of forgiveness.

A Deeper Darker Truth: Tom Wilson’s Journey Into The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy

A Deeper Darker Truth: Tom Wilson’s Journey Into The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy

In the late 1980s Tom Wilson a retired research and development engineer with US Steel Corporation designed a state-of-the-art image processing and computer analysis system using technology already employed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In doing so he perfected a method (based solely on hte physics of light) that could extract information from materials and images that were beyond human visual capabilities. Tom could for example detect flaws in a steel plate. This accepted methodology allowed him to serve as a consulting technical expert in criminal law cases where his image processing was accepted as hard evidence in American courts of law. For more than a decade Tom Wilson applied his computer image processing system to countless images of the Kennedy assassination. He stripped away layers of information to reveal truths that had never before been known. Some of his findings include: Shooters behind hte picket fence on the grassy knoll; Alteration of the Zapruder film; Fakery of the Oswald backyard photographs; An individual in the “sniper’s window” of the Texas School Book Depository who was nto Lee Harvey Oswald; An exit wound in the back of President Kennedy’s head (just as the doctors who attended the President at Parkland Hospital had described.); Exact location of the final and fatal head shot; Alteration of autopsy x-rays and photographs contained in the National Archives. Reading like a mesmerizing whodunit murder mystery A DEEPER DARKER TRUTH chronicles Tom Wilson’s evolving series of startling discoveries that show President Kennedy was assassinated by a group of assassins on November 22 1963.
