Box office weekend news… Madison Prewett is married… Henry Cavill leaving The Witcher… Kim Kardashian dresses up as Mystique… and Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen’s divorceListen to “Showbiz – Oct 31, 2022” on Spreaker.
“Black Adam” is back at ‘em, taking the top spot at the box office, which wasn’t exceptionally busy over the Halloween weekend. It took in another$27.7M, sending it past the $100M mark here in the US. It’s earned $250M worldwide so far, but the movie cost $200M to make before all the marketing costs, so there’s a chance Dwayne Johnson won’t get the sequel he’s hoping for. He’s still optimistic, though, going on Instagram yesterday to thank everyone who worked behind the scenes on his world press tour for “our NEW DC FRANCHISE known as BLACK ADAM.” We’ll see! Coming in second was the Julia Roberts and George Clooney romantic comedy “Ticket to Paradise” with $10M. “Prey for the Devil” was third with $7M, followed by “Smile” with another $5.1M and “Halloween Ends” with $3.8M.
A couple of celebrity weddings took place on Saturday. Remember Madison Prewett from Peter the Pilot’s season as the Bachelor? She married Grant Troutt in front of 400 of their nearest and dearest at his parents’ estate in Dallas. If you’re not familiar with the Troutt name, they’re billionaires. Grant is a minister and podcast host. Among their guests were fellow Bachelor Nation stars, Victoria Fuller, Hannah Ann Sluss and Kelley Flanagan, who recently started dating Peter the Pilot again. Madison and Grant fell hard and fast. They were first linked in December of last year. They went Instagram official in May. Two months later, he proposed on the beach in Palm Beach, Florida, with candles and flowers and a Bible with what would be her new married name on it. They were married three months later. Also on Saturday, HARDY married his longtime girlfriend Caleigh Ryan at Diamond Creek Farm in Nashville. Not only did they do a private first look before the ceremony, they also wrote their own vows and did those privately, as well. HARDY told People they just wanted the wedding ceremony to be about 30 seconds so they could get to the party. Their 350 guests included a lot of country music artists like Dierks Bentley, Lauren Alaina, ERNEST, and Morgan Wallen.
They did! Bachelor Nation’s Madison Prewett and her love Grant Troutt tied the knot. https://t.co/f91rEPbPZ0— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) October 30, 2022
Just one week after it was confirmed that Henry Cavill will return as Superman in upcoming DC Comics films, it was announced that Henry is leaving the Netflix series “The Witcher” after three seasons. Don’t be too upset, because he’s being replaced by the equally dreamy Liam Hemsworth. Henry is very cool with his replacement, saying, “My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventures, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and my swords for Season 4. In my stead, the fantastic Mr. Liam Hemsworth will be taking up the mantle of the White Wolf….. Liam, good sir, this character has such a wonderful depth to him, enjoy diving in and seeing what you can find.” Liam released his own statement saying he’s “over the moon” about playing Geralt. Season 3 with Henry will debut next year. After that, Liam takes over.

Kim Kardashian went all out for Halloween, dressing as Mystique from the X-Men and getting her friends to join her as Magik and Selene. Kim wore a blue latex bodysuit with blue paint on her skin and her hair slicked-back and colored red. Then she showed up for Tracee Ellis Ross’ 50th birthday dinner only to find out she was confused about the dress code. She posted a selfie with Tracee, captioning it, “That time I showed up to a birthday dinner in full costume when it wasn’t a costume party! Happy Birthday to the most beautiful soul @traceeelliseross.”
