Transformers: Age of Extinction once again topped the box office. The $210 million-budgeted robot-smashing thriller earned another $36.4m on its second weekend, down a not unexpected 64% from last weekend's alleged $100m debut. That's on par with the 61% drop for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (which also debuted the weekend before July 4th weekend). Transformers 4 is the first to explicitly open on a Friday and July 4th was on a Saturday back in 2009. Still, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was coming off a $200m five-day debut and had $293m domestic by this point. The fourth film has earned $174.7 millon domestic as of today, well below the previous Transformers' respective ten day totals. Again, direct comparisons are tough, as the other films opened on a Tuesday or Wednesday, but Transformers 4 has made $5m less in ten days than Transformers 3 earned in its first six days. Offhand, Transformers: Age of Extinction is on track to earn around $265m domestic. But the film is (as expected) doing very well overseas, especially in China (it had around $160m as of Thursday). The film has earned $575.6m worldwide, including $212m in China alone. It should be at or past $700m by the end of next weekend, meaning X-Men: Days of Future Past ($776m) had best enjoy its brief time atop the 2014 global box office charts.
Presidents of Fox Searchlight Steve Gilula & Nancy Utley opened the ceremony and introduced Q&A moderator Anthony Breznican (Entertainment Weekly) who chatted with
writer/director Jared Hess and cast members including Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez, Tina Majorino, Diedrich Bader, Haylie Duff, Sandy Martin, Shondrella Avery and Carmen Brady.
Then, Heder and Hess unveiled a brand new statue of Napoleon Dynamite complete with a 'Vote for Pedro' T-shirt and moon boots alongside his beloved tetherball pole that will live on the Fox Studios lot.

"SIPS" Somewhere In Palm Springs Makes Debut At Producers Guild And On A Screen Near You
New, animated hipster web-series is featured as part of Producers Guild West Web Video Screening Series
Comedian/writer NATE CLARK and partner ALLEN LOEB have wrapped production on Somewhere in Palm Springs (SIPS), an animated comedy web-series featuring a crew of fabulously disaffected hipsters sitting poolside at an ultra-hip Palm Springs hotel. The first episode of SIPS will screen on June 24, 2014 as part of the PRODUCERS GUILD WEST Web Video Screening Series in Beverly Hills. The complete series will then begin airing online starting June 25th.
Each episode finds us eavesdropping on a group of 20-somethings as they discuss one-night stands, B-list celebrities and general randomness while waiting for their food to arrive. The series stars DREW TARVER (How I Met Your Dad), JENNIE PIERSON (The B- in Apt 23) and JIMMY FOWLIE (The Comeback), alongside Clark and Loeb themselves. The colorful visual style was inspired by the art of SHAG - a Palm Springs icon. Real-life partners (life partnern...they're a couple) Clark and Loeb wrote the series together. Clark and Loeb met while developing their comedic chops at the GROUNDLINGS THEATER. Both continue to perform at the UPRIGHT CITIZENS BRIGADE (UCB), where Tarver and Pierson also perform. Clark recently participated in the 2014 Fox Writers Intensive and is known online for his viral response video "I Towed Joey Graceffa's Car." The response to the video (over 3 Million views to date) encouraged him to launch his own YouTube channel as a platform for original sketch comedy. Clark has steadily gained subscribers as well as interest from a variety of production companies.
The audio for Somewhere In Palm Springs was recorded at YouTube Space LA.
The first episode of Somewhere in Palm Springs will screen on June 24th as part of the PRODUCERS GUILD WEST Web Video Screening Series in Beverly Hills. The complete series will then begin airing online as follows:
June 25th - Ep01 - The Order
