Variety reports that Toy Story 4 opened to box office record success this past weekend across the world. It took top nods for the largest three-day opening for an animated feature in the U.S. (where it pulled in $118 million, below Disney’s estimates),...

We’re just over halfway through 2017, but it feels like it’s already been an eternity, with a news cycle not dissimilar from eating endless apps at a TGI Friday’s in Hell. Against all odds, however, true love appears to be alive and well.
