28, the studio announced Tuesday. "Strange Brigade," a 1930s co-op adventure game from Rebellion Developments, comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Aug.

Predator" franchises. It looks hokey but fun, like any good Universal monster movie.

that was later changed and updated. Later, Leon stopped Shapiro as he became agitated as Petrocelli pressed him on his use of a figure from consulting firm Altman Vilandrie & Co.
Petrocelli also challenged Shapiro on why he used data from June, 2016, to calculate customer lifetime value, another input used in Shapiro's model, rather than more updated numbers from 2017, which show less of an impact  of the merger.
"Apparently I am suffering the consequences of being conservative," he said, again emphasizing that he made a point of offering a range of potential impacts.
"It reminded me of a quote form Albert Einstein: 'Everything should be as simple as possible, but no simpler,'" he said.
Shapiro acknowledged that under such new data, pay-TV subscribers would see an estimated 13 cents per month increase, from an earlier projection of a 27 cents per month increase.
The emotion on display reflected the dispute between Shapiro and the economic expert retained by the companies, Professor Dennis Carlton of the University of Chicago.
District Judge Richard Leon. At one point, Daniel Petrocelli, the lead attorney for AT&T-Time Warner, and Carl Shapiro, professor at University of California at Berkeley, talked over one another until they were stopped by U.S.
Those numbers were used in Shapiro's calculations that the merger would ultimately end up costing pay-TV consumers. The figures were used in estimating how many subscribers would be lost in a protracted dispute in which Time Warner content is pulled from a distributor during a carriage dispute.
"I have my views. I apologize," Shapiro said to the judge at one point.
He said that AT&T-Time Warner and its experts were fixated on the lower end of those numbers, minimizing the potential impact of the transaction. Shapiro argued that in his methodology, he provided a range of potential impacts of the merger.
Shapiro suggested that AT&T waited until the last minute to provide the numbers, and did not know enough about the new figures to use them.
Leon said that he would schedule closing arguments then.” /> He may be called again on Thursday, when the witness list will have been completed.
Carlton had attacked Shapiro's use of the model, characterizing it as complicated.
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department's chief economic expert sparred with AT&T-Time Warner's lead attorney at the antitrust trial on Tuesday in a number of tense exchanges over the method for estimating the consumer impact of the proposed merger.
He also countered attacks on his economic projections of the merger, arguing that it used a standard model that was "theoretically sound" and used by the FCC in studying the Comcast-NBCUniversal merger. That was approved in 2011.

The clip, shown to theater owners at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, showed the first encounter between the duo at a rundown and dingy cantina on a snowy planet with an array of other characters, including a creature with more than a dozen eyes. Emilia Clarke's Qi'ra character explains to Solo that Calrissian won his ship playing a card game, prompting Solo to promise that he'll beat him — and then proceeding to do so.
The footage ended with both men wagering their spaceships and Calrissian warning, "You might want to quit while you’re ahead."
Disney also showed off a new trailer for "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and screened the beginning sequence from Pixar's "Incredibles 2" during its presentation. The "Ant-Man" sequel opens July 6; "Incredibles 2" launches June 15.

Disney made no mention during the presentation of the fact that Ehrenreich recently told Esquire that he's signed up to appear in two more movies.
"Solo" opens May 25. Ron Howard directed "Solo: A Star Wars Story" — the second spinoff "Star Wars" movie after 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." Howard replaced the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller a year ago.
Disney unveiled footage Tuesday from its upcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story," with a key scene between Alden Ehrenreich's young Han Solo and Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian.
Tuesday's footage also evoked a big laugh by showing an early encounter between Solo and the Wookie co-pilot Chewbacca. "You're 190?" Solo asks.
The scene has a bit of the look and feel of the memorable cantina in 1977's original "Star Wars," set in the city of Mos Eisley on Tatooine as the haunt of freight pilots and other dangerous characters of various alien races. It was also the setting where Harrison Ford's Han Solo first meets Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker.
The name of the ship was not unveiled, but in "Star Wars" lore, the original owner of the Millennium Falcon was Calrissian, and Solo won the ship from him in a card game.

He joined the council's board of directors in 2008 and became the board chair in 2014, along the way contributing to the organization's push for marriage equality. Scandalios — a longtime exec at Nederlander, the producing organization and Broadway landlord — will take home the honor for his dedication and contribution to the work of the Family Equality Council, which advocates on behalf of LGBTQ families around the country.
Past recipients of the Stevenson Award, named after the woman who served 30 years as the president of the American Theatre Wing, have included David Hyde Pierce, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Larry Kramer, and Rosie O'Donnell.

The Nederlander Org owns nine Broadway venues (where shows including "Hamilton," "Wicked," and "The Lion King" are currently playing) as well as theaters in other U.S.
The award for Scandalios is one of a handful of special trophies that will be handed out during the 2018 Tony ceremony in June, including lifetime achievement honors for Chita Rivera and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Nominations in the competitive categories will be announced May 1 ahead of the June 10 ceremony.” />

Sinclair in February unveiled a plan to sell two top-market Tribune stations — WPIX-TV New York and WGN-TV Chicago — in order to comply with federal ownership rules, but with the caveat that the friendly buyers would allow Sinclair to continue to operate the stations. That plan reportedly drew major pushback from the Justice Department and FCC, both of which are reviewing the deal.
Click here for a complete list of Sinclair's station sales.” />
Nine of the smaller-market stations will be acquired by Standard Media, backed by hedge fund Standard General. Broadcasting veteran Deb McDermott has been recruited to serve as president-CEO of Standard Media.
The revised plan still calls for Sinclair to sell WGN-TV but continue to operate the station. It's unclear if the sale price for WGN-TV has changed. On Tuesday, Sinclair identified 23 stations that would be sold to secure federal approval of the deal. The sale of WPIX, however, is off the table. Critics said Sinclair's deal was a brazen run around the federal station ownership cap, right down to the shockingly low pricetags of $15 million for WPIX and $60 million for WGN.
The initial deal with Tribune was set in May, but has been through a prolonged regulatory review given the historic nature of the deal and the level of opposition raised by critics of Sinclair and local TV consolidation. The company said it expects the deal to close near the end of the current quarter. Sinclair has buyers lined up for all but seven of the stations.
Sinclair Broadcast Group has been forced to significantly revise its plan for station divestitures to secure federal approval of a $3.9 billion acquisition of Tribune Media.
"After a very robust divestiture process, with strong interest from many parties, we have achieved healthy multiples on the stations we are divesting," said Chris Ripley, Sinclair president-CEO. The combined company will continue to advance industry technology, including the Next Generation Broadcast Platform, and to benefit from significant revenue and expense synergies." "While we continue to believe that we had a strong and supportable rationale for not having to divest stations, we are happy to announce this significant step forward in our plan to create a leading broadcast platform with local focus and national reach.
After the divestitures, Sinclair will own or operate some 215 stations serving 102 markets.
Sinclair's deal with Tribune promises to make the company by far the largest owner of TV stations in the country, which has drawn criticism from media watchdog groups and scrutiny from regulators.
The new plan calls for the sale of a mix of Sinclair and Tribune outlets. Large markets that will see turnover include Dallas and Houston, where Sinclair will part with Tribune-owned CW affiliates KDAF and KIAH, respectively. Both of those stations will be acquired by Cunningham Broadcasting, a group with close ties to Sinclair.

I hope they will stick with me and stick with the show. I take great pride in treating everyone in life with dignity and kindness. I am very grateful for my job, and I work extremely hard at it. I have a responsibility to do good work for my coworkers, my family, and my home state, and most especially for the fans.

In a statement posted on Instagram, Crawford provided details of two on-set incidents for which he was reprimanded, both related to concerns over working conditions. Crawford said that, following instruction from Warner Bros. Television, which produces the show, he completed therapy and shared a portion of his pay from the episode with one of the parties involved. Crawford said that in the first incident, which occurred last fall, he "reacted with anger over working conditions that did not feel safe or conducive to good work," prompting an angry response from the director and assistant director of the episode being shot.
As you can imagine, yesterday's headlines were incredibly distressing.
Deadline reported that Crawford "had a history of bad behavior on the show," and that the issue had escalated to the point that it "was threatening the future of the show," with producers considering recasting Crawford. On Monday, multiple outlets reported that concern over Crawford's behavior had injured the chances of "Lethal Weapon" landing a season-three renewal at Fox. was considering dropping Crawford's character from season three and replacing him with a new female character.

"I absolutely love, respect, and care for my crew and cast and would never intentionally jeopardize so many jobs." "I take responsibility for the incident, because I was in charge of the set," Crawford said. During filming, an actor was hit by a piece of shrapnel from a special effect.

Star Clayne Crawford apologized to the cast and crew of "Lethal Weapon" Tuesday in the wake of reports claiming that his behavior on set has endangered the future of the Fox drama.
It takes a village, and I am incredibly sorry if my passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on set or feel less than celebrated for their efforts. An actor on set felt unsafe because a piece of shrapnel from an effect hit him. I absolutely love, respect, and care for my crew and cast and would never intentionally jeopardize so many jobs. I take responsibility for the incident, because I was in charge of the set. Moreover, I love the process of filmmaking and television. It was an unfortunate event that happened in spite of all precautions and procedures being followed. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved. Furthermore, I apologize to all the crew and cast for any negative attention 'Lethal Weapon' is receiving because of these incidents. The second reprimand happened just a few weeks ago during the episode I was directing.

It takes a village, and I am incredibly sorry if my passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on set or feel less than celebrated for their efforts. He added, "I love the process of filmmaking and television.
It is true that I have been reprimanded twice during the past two seasons of 'Lethal Weapon.' The first reprimand was because I reacted with anger over working conditions that did not feel safe or conducive to good work under the leadership of a guest director and assistant director, who, in turn, were angry at my response. I met with human resources, I apologized for my part of the conflict, and I completed studio appointed therapy in October. I even shared a sizeable portion of my paycheck with one of the parties involved, per the instruction of the studio.

Samuel L. Jackson's Frozone turns out to be a key player in the opening scene of Disney-Pixar's "Incredibles 2" in footage unveiled Tuesday.
The original was a big hit, with more than $660 million in worldwide grosses. "Incredibles 2" hits theaters June 15.
The movie starts with an agent interrogating a student who recognizes the teenage Violet Parr as one of the Incredibles as the family and Frozone's ice-making abilities combine to partially stop an attack by a mole-like character, the Underminer, who has an enormous drilling machine. The Parr family is taken into custody by law enforcement, but Frozone manages to escape through an alley — where he's met by a mysterious man who asks if he wants to change the "No Supers" law banning superheroes.
Disney's new distribution chief Cathleen Taff noted Tuesday that the teaser trailer for "Incredibles 2" was the most-watched animated teaser ever, with more than 113 million views in the first 24 hours.
The sequel picks up right after the 2004 original, with Craig T. Nelson returning as the voice of Bob Parr and Holly Hunter as Elastigirl. Brad Bird, who voices fashion designer Edna Mode, is back to direct.
The studio showed about seven minutes of the animated sequel, which opens June 15, as part of its 90-minute CinemaCon presentation at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Jackson introduced the clip.

The game made $126 million in February of this year through in-app purchases alone. On mobile, the game reportedly made $25 million in its first month. "Fortnite," though a mega-success in the countries like the United States, has yet to come out in China. Though with the backing of Tencent, and with the company's recent push for Chinese esports, it stands to reason Epic's popular free-to-play game will continue to be a success overseas.
This seems to be just another addition to Tencent's plan to create a ¥100 billion esports in China by 2020. Tencent, which owns 40-percent of Epic Games, will split that ¥100 million ($15.8 million USD) two ways: half of the money will be used to make in-game content and support video content creators, while the other half is used to push the game as an esport in the country.
The company is also the publisher of the mobile game "Arena of Valor," which boasts more than 200 million players in China alone. Tencent, a mammoth video game and social media company based out of China, is probably the best partner Epic could've asked for with bringing its game to China. Tencent's CEO, Ma Huateng, is currently China's richest person. Along with owning part of Epic, it also has the rights to publish "Fortnite's" biggest competitor, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," in China.
However, after adding a battle royale mode in the wake of the success of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" last September, the game's popularity has been unrivaled, even being played by popular streamers such as Ninja and rappers such as Drake.” /> Releasing in July of 2017, after six years of development, the game was met with middling reviews from critics. For all intents and purposes, "Fortnite" should not be as popular as it is.
Epic Games' massively-popular survival-battle royale game "Fortnite" is finally heading to China thanks to a ¥100 million investment from Tencent, the company announced recently at a press conference according to gamesindustry.biz.

In "Lost in Space," which Netflix has been marketing heavily, Will Robinson and the Robot form an unexpected, unbreakable bond that could mean the difference between life and death for the Robinsons.
By comparison, the “Stranger Things” season 2 premiere episode average 15.8 million viewers from Oct. 27-29, while 11 million U.S. viewers who watched Netflix’s “Bright” during its first three days of release, according to Nielsen.
The original “Lost in Space," created by Irwin Allen, aired for three seasons, from 1965 to 1968 on CBS. The original also spawned a 1998 feature film starring William Hurt, Gary Oldman, Matt LeBlanc, Heather Graham and Mimi Rogers.” />
Famously, Netflix doesn't release viewing metrics, holding such data close to its vest — leaving third parties like Nielsen to try to estimate demand. and only detects viewership on connected TVs (excluding mobile devices and PCs). Regarding Nielsen’s methodology, Netflix has pointed out that Nielsen covers only the U.S. The Nielsen SVOD Content Ratings extrapolate viewership using audio-recognition technology that "listens" to what viewers are watching on TV.
In addition, in the first 72 hours of release (April 13-15) of all 10 epsiodes, "Lost in Space" viewers on average watched the show for 2.5 hours, per Nielsen. The media-measurement firm found the series was heavily binged — with almost 1.2 million people having watched the series' final episode within those three days.

The three are executive producers alongside Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni with Applebox’s Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig. Zack Estrin ("Prison Break") serves as showrunner.
