As you’re most likely aware, Nike put the kibosh on its already-made Betsy Ross-inspired sneakers, thanks to Colin Kaepernick’s tip-off and the athletic brand’s SuperWoke heroics (here, here, and here).

Well, as capitalism allows, another company has stepped in to fill the void.

Overtly pro-Trump, pro-law enforcement, and pro-military PrintedKicks has issued an old-school-looking Converse-style hightop with Betsy’s famed and recently-derided design.

And there’s more: As revealed by the company’s CEO in an interview with The Daily Caller, every penny of profit from the shoes will go to a charity benefitting veterans who suffer from PTSD.

The shoes are currently on sale for $69.99.

They can be purchased via this link.

Use the promo code “Merica” and save 20% on your entire order.

And you may indeed want to buy more: The company’s also released the very spiffy Trump shoe.

That’s right — for those of you who wanna give the opposition a kick in the pants, you can make SJW’s fill theirs with The Donald on your alive-and-kickin’ feet.

Get yours today and be superfly.

Shoe fly. Shoe.

ICE Begins Its Raids On Illegal Immigrants Under Court Order in NYC. De Blasio Assures the Targets: ‘This is Your City’

Big news in this current climate: Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents began the first raid in an impending series as the Trump administration moves to detain and deport a distinct group in the country illegally.

The following was the response of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio:

“Receiving reports of attempted but reportedly unsuccessful ICE enforcement actions in Sunset Park and Harlem. To everyone worried this weekend: This is your city. We will do everything we can to protect you.”

What’s his intention in giving them the city? Well, Bill indicated in January he’d like to take all the money from the people who shouldn’t have it and give it to the people of his choosing (here).

Kind of a Robin Hood who uses force of gun. Oh, wait — that’s called a thief.

To be fair, depending on your perspective, the forceful transference of resources — to some degree — could describe the government in general; so Bill’s merely keeping up with the times. Still, he seems desirous to take it up a notch or ten.

An official confirmed ICE’s attempt Saturday — in the neighborhoods of Manhattan’s Harlem section and Brooklyn’s Sunset Park — to The Wall Street Journal.

No arrests were made.



 

Who are the targets of the effort? That would be people who’ve resisted court orders to self-deport.

The raids will be performed in 10 major cities:

Atlanta
Chicago
Miami
Denver
New York City
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Baltimore
New Orleans
Houston

On Sunday, ICE Acting Director Matthew Albence explained the task to Fox News thusly:

“We are doing targeted enforcement actions against specific individuals who have had their day in immigration court and have been ordered removed by an immigration judge. We are merely executing those lawfully issued judge’s orders.

“These are individuals who have come into this country illegally, had the opportunity to make an asylum claim in front of an immigration judge, and most of them chose not to avail themselves at the opportunity and didn’t even show up to their first hearing.”

The battle continues. Will heightened defiance on the Left in America’s sanctuary cities hurt Democrats’ 2020 chances? As indicated by a poll covered by RedState’s Bonchie, the farther Left antics among Blue State operatives appear to be turning off voters. Presumably, the upcoming hoopla won’t help.

Democrat Internal Poll of Swing Voters Is Leaked and the Results Are Brutal

Westlake Legal Group bernie Democrat Internal Poll of Swing Voters Is Leaked and the Results Are Brutal primary poll Politics internal poll Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Elizabeth Warren donald trump democrats Brutal Bernie Sanders AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020 election

Some Democrat strategist is going to wake up in a cold sweat later tonight after seeing this.

The Democratic Party conducted an internal poll of swing voters, including their feelings on the “squad” and socialism. The result are absolutely brutal when juxtaposed with the stated positions of those running in the 2020 Democratic primary race.

The poll was leaked to Axios and here are some of the results.

The poll — taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi’s latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as “The Squad” — included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.

  • These are the “white, non-college voters” who embraced Donald Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in swing House districts.
  • The group that took the poll shared the results with Axios on the condition that it not be named, because the group has to work with all parts of the party.

The findings:

  • Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.
  • Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.

Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.

  • Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
  • “Socialism is toxic to these voters,” said the top Democrat.

Headlining members of the fresh face caucus, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have favorable numbers just above the DMV. Actually, Omar’s 9% might not even meet that threshold. I’d have been interested to see the results of Rashida Tlaib but that wasn’t published here.

The numbers on socialism are nice to see. While it’s no doubt a popular trend among young, liberal voters, to see swing voters still sharply opposed to that dumpster fire ideology gives me hope we’ve still got a few more years left in us.

There was some mixed news in the poll though. Trump is doing worse with these voters than he did in 2016 but has shown improvement since the 2018 election, where many of the same swing voters swept Democrats into power in the House. Trump should have room to win the rest back if he can present a disciplined message to this group down the stretch while exposing the radicalism of the Democrats.

As I’ve shared before, I think Bernie Sanders is dead at this point so I’m not going to bother speculating about what would happen if he were the nominee, but if Elizabeth Warren ends up in the position, which is looking very possible right now, the Democrat party is going to have to contend with her outspoken support of socialist policies. This poll also shows why Joe Biden has outpaced everyone else. He’s not actually a moderate, but just his appearance of moderation compared to his challengers has given him a level of support in the middle that the others can’t really touch. That could change though if he keeps floundering as he has.

Trump’s biggest advantage in 2020 is how insane Democrats have gone. I see no evidence they are planning to turn the ship around at this point.

As Democrats Fight Civil War, President Trump Dons His Ballistic Vest, Kevlar Helmet And Stirs The Pot, Forcing Pelosi To Make Nice With The Serpents Who Want To Destroy Her.

My good friend and RedState colleague Bonchie, has written a chiding post regarding a series of tweets by President Trump this morning. His position appears to be that President Trump’s tweets and inferred (by the leftists) choice of targets, will leave our side open to charges of racism. My initial response to that is, “So What?” They are gonna call us racists no matter what we say or do. Time to cowboy up and push back against patently false accusations…and do so with force, which the President did this morning.

Let’s take a look at the tweets in question. It appears to most reasonable folks that the President is referring only to two Congresswomen, Reps Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Although due to the obvious corruption and mishandling of hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico, he could possibly be including Rep Cortez, but I doubt it.

What the President tweeted, is what most of middle America is thinking; Your families fled some third world hell hole that practices abuse of women—including genital mutilation, in order to come to these United States. You and your families live under the protection that a Constitutional Representative Republic provides. Your family has more opportunity here, than in any other nation in the World. Instead of continually badmouthing these United States, why don’t you and your family go back to the third world hole you came from and fix it.

That’s a reasonable response to their caustic and unfounded (and often profane) criticism of the President. It’s certainly not racist, unless you are a leftist or a RINO enabler like Paul Ryan. It might sound ugly, but the President’s tweets this morning echo a sentiment that a good majority of Americans strongly support, although they might not admit to it outside their circle of close friends.

Of course, rather than look at what the President wrote, like most leftists, Pelosi and her posse joined the usual screeching of “Racisim!” What is sad, is that in some quarters our side are still afraid of that epithet. Nothing, repeat nothing that President Trump said in that series of three tweets was out of line or remotely racist. He is merely pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of fleeing a country that is racist, that is misogynist and that is intolerant of other religions, to the point of destroying Churches and killing Christians, while badmouthing the country that took you in. Let’s not forget the odd homosexual or two being tossed off a building.

Let’s not also forget, the two Congresswomen he was likely referring to, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib made a big deal out of browbeating the House to amend its rules so they could wear their hijabs on the floor. How nice, they insist on changing the rules to wear an article of clothing that openly symbolizes the maltreatment of women in the Muslim world.

Trump is saying and doing exactly what I sent him to Washington to do, push back on leftist propaganda and do so in plain language. Not only is he doing that, but he’s giving us on the right the courage to also push back. We don’t have to be afraid of being labeled as racists. We now have the courage of our convictions to merely snort in derision and get on with the job of making America great again.

Great Job Mr. President. Keep putting these mindless twits in their place. Oh. One final note—President Trump has managed to get Nancy Pelosi to come out in support of these children. How do you think that is going affect her grip on the levers of power in the House? This newfound “unity” my colleague points to, is merely a chimera.

Oil Tankers Operating In Middle East Gulf Being Urged Against Hiring Armed Guards

Westlake Legal Group ap-rouhani-iran-620x413 Oil Tankers Operating In Middle East Gulf Being Urged Against Hiring Armed Guards War tension in the Gulf of Oman Strait of Hormuz National Security military Middle East mercenaries Iran Front Page Stories Featured Story Energy Allow Media Exception

Over 1,600 people registered to run. Under Iranian law, there’s no fee for registering. Hopefuls only must believe in Iran’s form of government and be Shiite Muslims. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi, File)

Reuters reports that shipping industry associations are urging companies operating tankers in the Middle East Gulf against hiring mercenaries over fears of sparking a war between Iran and the U.S.

Iran has become increasingly aggressive over the last month in the region. U.S. intelligence officials are confident that Iran targeted two oil tankers, one Japanese and the other Dutch, last month in the Gulf of Oman. The following week, Iran shot down a U.S. drone they claimed had flown into their airspace.

Last week, an Iranian tanker was seized in Gibraltar and according to London, “its warship HMS Montrose, had to fend off Iranian vessels seeking to block a British-owned tanker from passing through the Strait of Hormuz.”

In addition, Iran has announced they’ve exceeded the enriched uranium stockpile limits agreed to under the nuclear deal and have said they plan to enrich uranium up to higher levels.

As the Iranian economy deteriorates more and more as a result of U.S. sanctions, their acts have become more hostile.

Needless to say, tensions in the region have intensified.

The advisory said:

The use of force against threats recently encountered in the Gulf of Oman carries significant risk and has the potential to escalate security situations to the detriment of the safety of ship and crew.

The use of unarmed maritime advisors to assist with onboard security and watch-keeping is sensible.

According to Reuters, it is not illegal for ships to sail through the Strait of Hormuz with private armed guards on board, however, most ports in the Gulf will not allow ships carrying weapons to enter.

Guy Platten, secretary general of the International Chamber of Shipping, told Reuters “The message is do not use private armed guards in these waters – it is not advised.”

Reuters spoke to Jonathan Moss, head of transport and shipping with law firm DWF. Moss said, “The legal implications for insurers and vessel owners are widespread. Breaches of rules bring about significant financial penalties, adverse reputational issues and in some cases custodial sentences.”

Moss added, “The navies will be aware that additionally recruited armed security personnel may lead to the possible escalation of violence.”

Mark Gray, co-founder of British company MNG Maritime, which runs a UK regulated floating armoury some 26 nautical miles from the coast of the United Arab Emirates, told Reuters:

UK security companies that are licensed to carry and move firearms in the region are restricted to counter-piracy activity.

Any British security company that uses those firearms … to counter the forces of a state like Iran would be in breach of that license and therefore breaking the law.

Armed guards are not the solution – all you need are more eyes and ears looking at all sides of the ship especially the rear when passing through those waters.

This is the exact opposite of what shipping companies were advised to do when incidences of Somali piracy were at their peak.

I understand where they’re coming from. The region is currently a powder keg. If a tanker were to defend itself against Iranian aggression and opened fire, the situation could quickly escalate. Wars have been triggered over less.

They are trying to avoid a disaster like the Nisour Square Massacre in Baghdad, which occurred in September 2007. The U.S. government had contracted with Blackwater Security Consulting, a private military company. Several Blackwater employees were escorting a U.S. embassy convoy through the busy intersection when they opened fire on Iraqi civilians killing 17 and wounding 20. Blackwater claimed they had acted in self-defense while the Iraqi’s claimed the attack was unprovoked.

The incident caused considerable harm to the U.S./Iraqi relationship. Following a 2014 trial, four Blackwater employees were convicted of charges ranging from murder to manslaughter.

If a similar situation occurred involving Iranian forces, it could quickly escalate. And the result would be even more serious.

On the other hand, will the world allow Iran to control the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz without putting up a fight?

Ya Gotta Love Infighting: Michael Avenatti Attacks Alyssa Milano for Attacking Him

There’s nothing quite like political party infighting.

This past week, two of the Left’s most cartoonish characters collided.

Can’t-get-enough-TV-time attorney Michael Avenatti slammed actress-turned-mistaken-Paul-Revere Alyssa Milano over an aged tweet she fired off over allegations of domestic violence on the part of the used car salesm– I mean, lawyer.

Back in November, Michael was arrested after an ex-girlfriend accused him of grabbing her wrist and ejecting her from his apartment (here).

However, in February, it was announced that Michael wouldn’t be criminally charged.

But Alyssa long-ago made clear her position on allegations: We are to “believe all women.” Therefore, if it is untrue that a man did something, it is true that a man did something.

Or, to put it another way:

Alyssa Milano Pounds The Door Of A Congresswoman: All Women Are Right, Because Some Women Are Right

Or:

“Justice, schmustice. I’ve been sent to Earth to offer Charmed and salvation.”

Here’s what Alyssa had to say in November:

As pointed out by Fox News:

The hashtag “Basta” is a Spanish word meaning “enough,” which Avenatti often used on Twitter in posts critical of Donald Trump.

No word on why Michael waited until now to respond, but on Monday, he let Alyssa have it:

It should be noted that the domestic case is still open.

But Michael’s got bigger charges to face: The goofy guy — who made 254 television appearances in just one year — was indicted in May for allegedly trying to blackmail Nike and could be going to prison for a very long time (here).

Last week, the California State Bar motioned to suspend his license to practice law, given that his alleged criminality “poses a substantial threat of harm to clients or the public.”

For more Avenatti wackiness, see here, here, and here.

As Democrats Fight a Civil War, Trump Strips Naked and Runs Onto the Battlefield

Westlake Legal Group D_c50OvXoAA8YC7-620x342 As Democrats Fight a Civil War, Trump Strips Naked and Runs Onto the Battlefield Trump supporters stupid Self-Destructive ridiculous republicans rashida tlaib Politics Nancy Pelosi Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story dumb donald trump democrats civil war Ayanna Pressley Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

But why though?

The Democrats are currently embroiled in a civil war so damaging that you have members calling each other racist and threatening to primary one another. For the first time since their election, the self-described “squad” of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her minions are on their heels, not sure how to react to the fire they are taking. Even the liberal media are infighting about which side to take as the volleys are launched.

Meanwhile, the economy is booming and President Trump is enjoying one of the more positive stretches of his tenure.

Well, he was at least. For some reason, he though it would be a good idea to wake up this morning and tweet this.

This is so self-destructive that it makes me want to beat my head against a wall.

Of the “Congresswomen” he could possibly be addressing here (which are undoubtedly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley), three of them were born in America. They don’t have countries to go back to. One isn’t even a first generation American. She’s just…black.

Sure, I could parse this out and torture it, asserting that Trump is really only talking about Ilhan Omar despite the entire thing being in the plural tense and the aforementioned four all being in the news for the very thing he’s complaining about. I’m not going to do that though because I’d be lying to myself. This wasn’t thought out or planned. It wasn’t nuanced. It was Trump jumping on Twitter, not thinking about what he was saying, and pushing the publish button on the tweet.

All Trump had to do was stop and reflect for a moment. He’s got people all around him who could have pointed out “hey, this is going to cause a lot of blow back on you and your supporters at the worst possible time.” Another set of eyes and a simple tweak to the wording could have fixed it, but he refuses to take those precautions. Even now, he could issue a follow up clarification that would at least help provide some semblance cover for his supporters. He hasn’t done so.

If I could ask the President one question, it’d be this. Why make it so difficult for those who are trying to get you re-elected?

Democrats are collapsing in on themselves. All he has to do was sit back and not distract them. Instead he rips his shirt off and runs out on the battlefield screaming to be shot at. I know, 3-D chess and all that, but this just makes no sense.

And that’s exactly what is happening. Pelosi has now been given the perfect situation to bring peace to her civil war while redirecting all the fire on Republicans and she’s taking advantage of it.

We’ve got literal socialists running for President. People that want to do away with all immigration enforcement, raise taxes, and outlaw private health insurance. In other words, the stakes for 2020 are incredibly high.

All Trump has to do is play to his strengths, i.e. the economy and immigration, and he wins. But he just can’t stop stepping on his own feet. When your enemies are blasting each other, you don’t step in between them and beg to be shot in head. Yet, that’s exactly what Trump did here.

Instead of another week of AOC and Pelosi bad mouthing each other, we get a return to a unified Democrat front and multiple news cycles calling Republicans racists.

If Trump loses in 2020, it won’t be Paul Ryan’s fault, the Republican party’s fault, or the media’s fault. It’ll be a defeat that was wholly self-inflicted because he refused to practice any semblance of self-control when it comes to his personality. No one with an economy this good should be trailing Joe Biden by ten points or languishing with an approval rating in the mid-40s. Trump is though, not because of his policies, but because he’s constantly stepping on landmines when all he has to do is stay out of the minefield.

His only possible saving grace is that Democrats are absolutely crazy and will continue to push further leftward as the election season continues. For me personally, I’d prefer not to play a high stakes game of chicken with the country’s future. In the end, this isn’t about Trump. Like all politicians, he’s just a means to an end. Republicans need to be victorious in 2020 and not handing the Democrats a bucket of water after they set themselves ablaze would be prudent.

Incredible: Man Saves His Children From a Carjacker, But the Shocking Ending is Harrowing

Westlake Legal Group justice-2755765_1280-620x436 Incredible: Man Saves His Children From a Carjacker, But the Shocking Ending is Harrowing Violence Uncategorized theft scott small philadelphia police department philadelphia Pennsylvania parents Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture crime children Allow Media Exception

 

 

Wow. This is an incredible story.

According to cops (and WPVI), here’s what happened…

A 25-year-old man was working at a pizza delivery joint in Philadelphia Thursday when his same-aged girlfriend — and mother of his two kids — came in around 9 p.m.

She’d left her vehicle running with her three youngsters — a 7-month-old, an 18-month-old, and a 5-year-old (from a prior relationship) inside.

While the two spoke in the restaurant, a man carjacked the full-of-kids Hyundai.

The pair chased after the car, which got stuck in nearby traffic.

As per Scott Small, of the Philadelphia Police Department:

“They were able to pull this car thief out of the vehicle.”

The 54-year-old assailant subsequently took off on foot, but the boyfriend caught him and a fight ensued.

Back to Scott:

“Then other males from the neighbourhood intervened and began punching and kicking the male who took the vehicle.”

They beat the guy severely.

He was taken to a hospital with extreme damage to the head and face. At 10:05, he was pronounced dead.

The three children were unharmed and spent the night with relatives.

The tykes’ mom and dad were said to be cooperating with detectives.

It’s yet to be determined whether charges will be brought against the father.

What an intense and insane and terrible thing. It no doubt conjures strong convictions.

Thank God the children were unharmed and the crime was stopped. And kudos to a dad for doing whatever it took.

But as for the ending, what do you think? What feelings do you take away? Are you struck by thoughts of justice or of reckless, animalistic violence?

I look forward to hearing from you in the Comments section.

Actress Alyssa Milano Compares Mike Pence to Heinrich Himmler, Spotlighting a Growing & Dangerous American Ignorance

What do you do when you have no concept of history or the high stakes of true evil? For some, you essentially deny the real terror of the Holocaust by comparing present-day American political figures to Hitler.

Actress-turned-ill-informed-tweeter Alyssa Milano (here) followed suit Saturday with a breathtaking post.

Her assertion? That Vice President Mike Pence’s Friday visit to a detention center at the border was tantamount to evil Nazi Heinrich Himmler surveying a WWII POW camp.

This, if I may say so, is about as inexcusably idiotic as anything a person could suggest:

An estimated 6,000,000 innocents died in the Holocaust. Men, women, and children were rounded up because of their bloodline and executed. Among other means, they were placed in gas chambers, cooked in ovens, shot, and used for shockingly cruel medical experimentation.

Border detention centers are placement centers for people breaking the law, knowing that the detention centers are there for people who break the law.

But to some people who — for an unknown reason — can’t process the notion that (not so) long ago, Adolf Hitler, Himmler, and others systematically set out to murder millions…

I can’t even finish that sentence. This entire trend is just too horrible to properly address.

Moral equivalence and the dumbing-down of a nation:

Uh, no. It’s not.

Not everyone responded with zero comprehension:

Here’s what Mike had to say, following his trip:

America has a problem at the border, and a problem with the border. Thus far, Washington hasn’t been willing to fix things.

I haven’t been to the detention centers, and I have no idea what issues there are in great need of attention.

But I do know the comparison of Trump or whichever contemporary U.S. official to Hitler warrants denouncement.

I’m unfazed by whatever someone may think about issues of government — we can all cheer and boo, and at the end of the day, to a fair degree, it’s only politics. But honestly, what Alyssa has shared here is, in my view, shameful.

Ignorance is a contagion. And spreading the notion that what happened in the past wasn’t so ghastly by suggesting what’s happening now is just as so…is a very dangerous thing.

I’ll close here with a statement from the United States Holocaust Museum in response to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s likening of border centers to Nazi concentration camps (here, here, and here):

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary. That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

For more cold water to the face, witness the real horror of innocents in ovens via this link, which tells of the deaths of 1.32 million in only three months during 1942.

The RedState Box Office Report – Counter Programming Counted Out

Westlake Legal Group Crawl-620x287 The RedState Box Office Report – Counter Programming Counted Out Popular Culture Movies Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Box Offie Report box office report

 

It’s hard out there for the little guys.

It has been a tough summer for Hollywood with good and bad results on any given week. Basically if you are not one of the big guns then finding business in theaters is some tough sledding. Even this weekend’s lull before the big time release of “The Lion King” was not too fruitful. There also is little room, as the major releases are dominating the screens. “Spider-Man” sports the second highest release (4,634 screens) and “Toy Story 4” has the third highest — combined these two titles are showing on nearly 8,850 screens.

This week was a slight break between major releases so other studios attempted to get smaller-scale films noticed, trying to get attention by running between the legs of the giants. It did not work out that way and the established titles enjoyed decent returns. So here are what audiences chose to get out of the heat.

 

1. SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME – $45.3 Million
The 4th of July champ continued to rule. While it officially drops just over -50% that is a bit of a stilted number, as the film debuted on a Tuesday and that skews the conventional week-over-week measure. The latest comic book hero pic has been a smash, earning $275 million already, and tack on an additional $400 million in overseas returns. It is looking like Sony’s decision to partner with Marvel is paying off well.

2. TOY STORY 4 – $20.66m
Those days of some speculating this third sequel had a soft opening are rather humorous now. This return takes the film on the edge of $350 million and a worldwide total in the $700 million range. It is drawing better than “TS3” and has held nicely against a serious comic book film. The biggest challenge for the Disney film will be next week’s release of a Disney film.

3. CRAWL – $12.0m
There were tepid expectations for this horror thriller from Paramount. The hope is there would be some interest in the lag week, but this came in slightly below anticipated numbers despite a slight show of strength on Saturday. We covered the details on this one on our “Disasters In The Making” podcast this week, as weather-based creature film, where a massive hurricane hits Florida and rampaging alligators trap a family in their home. The accuracy is low and the reliance on CGI is high. This will have to lurch its way to about the $50 level to see a profit, which seems a longer shot than the family’s survival.

4. STUBER – $8.04m
A comedy action farce with Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani, this one suffers from a few maladies. It is an already tough market for adult comedies, and this was produced by 20th Century Fox, before the Disney takeover. As a result, it was drifting in the takeover, with Disney not really backing it and letting the remaining Fox ad team handle the promotions. Looking as if this will be fading very quickly from screens.

5. YESTERDAY – $6.1m
Becoming quite the quiet success story. Each week it is adding screens as the adult audience is finding this to be an alternative for their choosing. Nearly hitting the $50 million level, which few had anticipated for this small feature.

6. ALADDIN – $5.7m
Still churning out the returns with low percentage drops per week. This time seeing a dip of only -24%, but likely to feel the arrival of the next live-action remake coming next week.

7. ANNABELLE 3 – $5.5m
The dearth of any true horror hits has meant that the audience has spread around modest amounts to those that have arrived. This return is low for its series but decent for the summer releases.

8. MIDSOMMAR – $3.5m
An acclaimed art-house horror offering it has not garnered the same attention as the conventional choices. After two weekends it has yet to even hit $20 million in total.

9. THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 – $3.1m
A surprisingly lower performance than its predecessor, it still has not inched its way over the $150 million plateau.

10. MEN IN BLACK INTERNATIONAL – $2.21m
A complete flameout here in the states at just $75 million in total it has drawn more than twice that in foreign sales. It remains to be seen if ultimately it manages to break even for Sony.
