Hollywood Minute: Friday, June 22, 2018


A familiar fighter back on the big screen, a tribute to a music icon, and a cheap way to keep the kids entertained this summer. David Daniel has it all in the Hollywood Minute.

“People like me, we live in the past. You got people that need you now.”


“You got everything to lose. This guy’s got nothing to lose.”

“I ain’t got a choice.”

Here’s your first look at “Creed II,” as Michael B. Jordan’s “Adonis Creed” once again looks to Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky Balboa” to train him for a seemingly unwinnable fight — this one with an opponent with an ominously familiar name. The bell rings for “Creed II” in November.

(singing) “What’s in your head?”

When the heavy metal band Bad Wolves decided to cover the Cranberries’ hit “Zombie”, they asked Cranberries front-woman Dolores O’Riordan to record vocals for the song. Shockingly, O’Riordan died the day she was set to record. Bad Wolves released the song without her vocals. At a New York show this week, they donated their proceeds from the track, $250,000, to her four children.

“Yes! Overpriced coffee!”

“That’s $37.”


If you’re looking for a cheap way to keep your kids occupied this summer, Regal Cinemas has a solution: the chain’s “Summer Movie Express” offers matinees of such family films as “The Lego Movie,” “Despicable Me” and “Despicable Me II,” “Sing” and plenty of others, two mornings a week. Tickets? One dollar each! Though popcorn does cost extra.

In Hollywood, I’m David Daniel.
