    'Justice League' stumbles at the box office

    "Justice League" was hit with some Kryptonite at the box office this weekend. The mashup that brought together some of DC Entertainment's biggest superhero stars, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, nabbed an estimated $96 million at the box office in North America this weekend. That number, while still big for an opening weekend, came in under the roughly $110 million the industry expected. It's also the lowest opening for the Warner Bros. superhero brand, trailing films like 2013's "Man of Steel," 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," 2016's "Suicide Squad" and this summer's "Wonder Woman." It is the only film in the DC Extended Universe to not crack the $100 million mark in North America at its opening.

    PTSD 'a struggle for cancer patients'

    A fifth of cancer patients experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a Malaysian study has found. About one-third of these still had consistent or worsening PTSD four years after diagnosis. The researchers said PTSD needed to be identified, monitored and treated early. Becki McGuinness, who was diagnosed with bone cancer, said the resulting PTSD and depression were the biggest challenges for her. Becki was treated with chemotherapy after being diagnosed at the age of 21. When it didn't work, she was told she would need radiotherapy. "By the time I'd finished radiotherapy, and a few months passed, my periods were stopping. "It wasn't until I was 23 that I found out that I'd gone through

  • Justice Department sues to block AT&T-Time Warner deal

    The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit to block AT&T's takeover of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Monday, is an unusual challenge to the $85 billion deal, which was announced by the two companies more than a year ago. AT&T says it will fight the case in court. In the suit, the DOJ argues that the deal violates antitrust law because AT&T would likely "use its control of Time Warner's popular programming as a weapon to harm competition." The government alleges that the deal "would result in fewer innovative offerings and higher bills for American families." AT&T has been preparing for a potential legal challenge. It immediately

    Anthony Atamanuik: The late-night comic who plays off Trump's 'inner self'

    Donald Trump was one of 17 candidates in the GOP primaries when actor Anthony Atamanuik did his first impersonation of him during an improv show at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York. "He announced on my birthday, on June 15, and I thought it was pretty silly at the time," Atamanuik recalled. Lots of reporters and commentators felt the same way. "But by August, I was like, 'Well, this guy's for real.' And I thought it would be funny to do him," the comedian said. Atamanuik's stock right rose along with Trump's. This year the comedian turned the Trump performance into a full-time gig, starring in 20 episodes of "The President Show" for Comedy Central. "It takes two hours to get into the makeup,"
