Sure, Jack Kirby’s a revered artist, and he created some of the best known comic characters around. Captain America and the Avengers and the Inhumans and the X-men, Galactus and the Silver Surfer and Red Skull and Darkseid, Kirby had a major hand in the stories and look of the heroes and villains currently raking in millions upon millions for film franchises on both sides of the ‘verse divide. He’s a giant of a figure, as BBP continues celebrating a summer of Kirby at 100. But did you know Jack Kirby was a spy?

War was the story at the box office this weekend, as one of this year’s critically acclaimed new releases was the choice for audiences. Here’s what went down:
Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk debut at the top of the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $51 million. That’s around what we thought the film would do, and is actually a stronger opening than Nolan’s last film, Interstellar, which delivered $47.5 million. Dunkirk should continue to perform well over the coming weeks, as Nolan has a lot of good will with audiences.
It’s one of the best times ever to be a woman in the creative world. With ever expanding ways to story tell, Netflix is striving to create female characters who are willing to put their selfishness aside to support their fellow women.
It’s another big summer weekend at the box office, as three new releases are looking to try and make an impact. Two of them should be a sure thing, while the other is definitely going to struggle. Which will come out on top? Here are our predictions:
Dunkirk, a World War II true story, is the latest from director Christopher Nolan, and is being hailed by some as the greatest war film ever. That’s a bold assertion, but Nolan is also one of our greatest directors, and he certainly could deliver. The trailers have been stunningly tense, and audiences will likely want to see Dunkirk on the big screen. Though war films don’t typically skew young, the appearance of One Direction’s Harry Styles in the film may actually bring in a female audience. Look for a first place showing for Dunkirk with $53 million.
