Two years ago, Salma Hayek bemoaned her status with major Hollywood studios, telling the Associated Press, “I think they don’t want me, but I don’t really care.” Since getting that gripe off her chest, however, there’s no denying Hayek has had a helluva run. And this month, she manages to steal some of the best moments from rival scene-chewers Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in the new action-comedy, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard.”
In an unexpected upset, How to Be a Latin Lover and Indian film Baahubali: The Connection — both beat Emma Watson's new high-tech thriller The Circle at the North American box office. Overall, Universal's The Fate of the Furious stayed atop the chart in its third weekend with $19.4 million from 4,077 theaters for a domestic total of $192.7 million. Globally, the eighth outing in the action series gunned past the $1 billion after clearing a massive $867.6 million offshore, including a record-breaking $361 million in China.
