So Last Week....
2018 Weekly Entertainment, Celebrity and Pop Culture Trivia Quiz.
A crazy name debate, a show saved from cancellation, pop culture superheroes and an insane renewal - all in our pop culture recap quiz for the 20th week of 2018.
Weekend Wrap-Up
Marvel replaces itself at the top this weekend as Deadpool 2 is indeed the top film of the weekend with an estimated $125 million. That's a solid total, but down from the original's $132.4 million from February 2016. It did get off to a bigger start, with a Friday of $53.3 million ($18.6 million of that coming Thursday night), versus the first film's $47.3 million, but it faltered over Saturday and Sunday.
