A year ago, Robin Thicke was on top of the world, enjoying the success of his No. 1 single “Blurred Lines.” But a very different Thicke was in the hot seat during his return visit to Hot 97′s “Ebro in the Morning” on Tuesday. A more somber Thicke sat down to discuss his new album Paula, which was inspired by his wife of nine years, Paula Patton.
During the honest and deeply personal interview, he revealed that he and Patton still live separate lives.
“I haven’t seen her for four months,” he admitted. “She’s the best girl in the world, a great mother and still a good friend. But I also want to wish her well and let her know that she’s a great person and she deserves to have a good life.”
The couple, who met when they were in high school, may need some time to mend their marriage. “If you’ve been together that long, you kinda became adults together instead of being adults and then meeting,” he said. “But maybe a year or two off, we’ll become our own people without each other and then it will be meant to be.”
He admitted that he had “a little too much” fun with his success. “I’m a man. I messed up and I had to lie for a while, and then I stopped lying,” he said. “This whole album is me revealing everything.”
Patton hasn’t heard the album yet. “She’s only heard a few songs, and I don’t think she wants to hear it right now.”
But his success isn’t the only reason they split up. “We’re apart because we just couldn’t be together anymore for a while. There’s a hundred different reasons. There isn’t just one.”
“I changed, and I got a little too selfish, a little too greedy, and little too full of myself.”
But he’s working to better himself. “My music is my therapy. When I make these songs and I listen back to them, they make me feel good about myself because at least I’m admitting my faults, I’m trying to become a better man and better person, better father.”
She also transforms into Brigitte Bardot and Farrah Fawcett for the beauty brand.
In celebration of Max Factor's 100 Years of Glamour campaign, Gwyneth Paltrow is channeling four style icons for the beauty brand.
Thanks to Max Factor global creative design director and international makeup artist Pat McGrath, the actress is given pretty spot-on makeovers as Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Farrah Fawcett and former bestie Madonna. Given that the late Max Factor himself (nee Maksymilian Faktorowicz) once worked with so many famous faces, including Judy Garland, Jean Harlow and Bette Davis, the campaign is the perfect way to pay tribute to the century-old label's influence in Hollywood.
Check out Paltrow's transformations below. What do you think, ONTD? Weigh in on the comments.

'Better Call Saul' will take place before, during, and after 'Breaking Bad'
We may not have seen the last of Walter White.
Peter Gould, executive producer of AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, told the New York Daily News that the spinoff will jump between decades and may even include scenes that take place during the Breaking Bad timeline. This means that there’s a chance Bryan Cranston will reprise his three-time Emmy-winning role as school teacher-turned-meth kingpin Walter White.
“One of the great things about having a timeline which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before Breaking Bad, during Breaking Bad, and after Breaking Bad,” Gould told The New York Daily News. “That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on Breaking Bad.”
Gould insisted that he and the rest of the Better Call Saul team wanted to “make a show that stands on it own, is its own story, and is a brand extension.”
“We think we have a story that is worth making,” said Gould. “We could never dream of the kind of success that Breaking Bad had, and the love we got from the fans. But [with Saul] at a certain point you have to do the best job you can and tell the best story that entertains you, get a good response and hope people like it.”
The Breaking Bad spin-off will reunite Bob Odenkirk with Jonathan Banks, who played fixer Mike Ehrmantraut on the original series. The rest of the cast includes Michael McKean, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn, and Michael Mando. Better Call Saul was originally slated to premiere in November; however, AMC decided to push its debut back to early 2015. Last month, AMC showed an early vote of confidence in the show and renewed it for a 13-episode second season before the first season even hit the air.
In his bid to win his estranged wife, Paula Patton, back, Robin Thicke is making us all real f--king uncomfortable. His new album, subtly titled Paula, is basically just an extended thesis statement explaining why she should take him back.
Paula (the album, not the person) is full of cringe-worthy lyrics set to, for some reason, old-school swing music (maybe Paula likes jazz? Does anyone else in 2014?) Anyway, here are all the lyrics you'll wish you never read:
3. "I will always daydream wishing that you were mine / I understand right now you need some space and time / I can smell your perfume / Your legs are on my walls / Your body's on my ceiling / Your giggle down the hall."
7. "See the birds fly, see the blue sky, see the best times of my life / Watch me crawl, watch me beg, watch me fall deep cause I- / I just can't stop, I just can't stop thinking about those days."
10. "One, two, look at you / Three, four, she locked the door / I keep knocking and knocking and knocking and knocking."
13. "Don't leave me out here in the cold / Ooh turn the porch light on / At least open the doggy-door / Throw a friend a juicy bone."
15. "(Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, kiss me) I kiss you all over your body baby / (Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, kiss me) I want to kiss you all over, over, over / (Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me, kiss me) Your body, body, body, body, body baby."
17. "You're way too young to dance like that in front of a man like me baby / Oh yes you are / You know cigarettes are bad for you baby / But so am I."
19. "With your new new new new new new new nails / Sweet cherry pineapple black / Shine your magical touch and heavenly light on my body baby / Show me our love can grow back."
22. "You're yelling and screaming and smacking me / How could you do this you spoiled little rich kid (truth) / A rock in the TV / You bashin' my ride up, you smashed my guitar (Tell ‘em the truth) / Chasing me around the house swinging / Trying to hit me with my favorite golf club (truth)."
23. "You were lying in bed (truth) / Said you took twenty pills (truth) / Now I'm calling the ambulance, police, I'm freakin' out till you said / Chill baby, I didn't really take them pills / I'm just desperately crying for help."
33. "Forever love / Oh forever love / Forever mine, forever yours / Forever love / Forever love / Oh it's forever love / Forever mine, forever yours / Forever love, forever love."
While rival US soaps such as Days of Our Lives and General Hospital currently have ongoing gay storylines, the top-rated The Young and the Restless remains quite heterosexual.
Out actor Greg Rikaart, who has played Kevin Fisher on the show for the past decade, thinks it would be interesting if an established character - such as his - were to come out.
'Frankly, I think it’s far more interesting to do that with a character that the fans already know than to bring on a gay character that no one knows of,' he told michaelfairmansoaps.com this week.
'The fans view the characters like family. So if there is a family member that suddenly revealed something about themselves that no one knew about before, it mirrors what happens in real life.'
'I think the powerfulness of that message to the audience would be way more profound than just introducing a new character that just happens to be gay. The audience would go on the same journey that a family member would go on.'
Rikaart's character is currently single on the show. Having Kevin turn out to be gay or bisexual is not something that has been talked about among the writers as far as he knows.
'If it’s not a story they want to tell, then they are not going to tell it. I don’t think it’s the only avenue that Kevin could go down, but it certainly would be interesting … in my opinion.'
As for Rikaart, he was one the show for nine years before coming out publicly a year ago on Twitter. Last month, he received the Visibility Award from The Human Rights Campaign.
The actor believes making the character gay or bisexual could provide more drama for the show because you could portray 'different points of view from people in Kevin’s life.'
The people at Hobby Lobby are assholes and those who voted to let them be assholes are also assholes. http://t.co/iQFP7O3gJ5— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) July 1, 2014
My fly has been down for three hours.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) July 1, 2014
Rogen's tweet linked to a report that Hobby Lobby, et al. would still continue to pay for insurance that covers Viagra and vasectomies—i.e. things needed by men.
"People love defending people's rights to deprive other people of their rights," he also wrote.
Then Rogen tweeted two hours later, "My fly has been down for three hours." So he may not be headed to Capitol Hill anytime soon to rally.
But he's not the only celeb irked by the high court's decision.
George Takei has called for a Hobby Lobby boycott, and others have tweeted their displeasure, including Ian Somerhalder, who posted a scathing critique to Instagram.
"What Hobby Lobby and the Supreme Court think of you ladies... " wrote the Vampire Diaries star. "Have at it- pass it around, make some noise. It's the year 2014 wtf! Or wait! Is it the year 1014? Keep em barefoot and pregnant I guess!? Population at 9 billion by mid century! Can't feed the 7 billion we have now! But DONT WORRY EVERYONE! MONSANTO WILL FEED THE WORLD- Then! Then, we can all make lots of money off of the big pharmaceutical stocks because drug companies will be so busy feeding drugs to sick people because on genetically modified organisms! WooooHoooo! Wow can't fuc()$& wait!
Hobby Lobby still covers Viagra!? How charming!!!!— Ellen Page (@EllenPage) July 1, 2014
Hobby Lobby says no to birth control pills but yes to covering employees vasectomies, if you were wondering what it's like to be a woman.— kelly oxford (@kellyoxford) June 30, 2014
I disagree with the Hobby Lobby case. Employees have to subject themselves to the beliefs of a CEO? Doesn't seem fair.— Larry King (@kingsthings) July 1, 2014
Between this Hobby Lobby ruling and that new ISIS map I really feel like i'm getting it from all sides today.— Rachel Dratch (@TheRealDratch) July 1, 2014
Burger King is to start selling gay burgers. The fast-food giant has revealed The Proud Whopper, a limited edition product only sold for one week in one city.
San Francisco customers got a first taste of the burger during Sunday’s pride parade, wanting to see what made this patty different from any other.
When diners unwrapped the rainbow wrapper and got the taste, they found it was exactly the same as any other burger. To emphasize the point, the interior comes with a second message: We Are All The Same Inside.
The campaign was conceived few months ago as a way for Burger King to bring the company’s new ‘Be Your Way’ tagline to life, changed from the decades old Have It Your Way.
‘As a brand, we welcome everyone,’ a Burger King spokesman has said. ‘We felt the Proud Whopper could bring to life a message of equality, self-expression, authenticity and just being who you are.’
The Proud Whopper is available exclusively at the Burger King restaurant located at 1200 Market Street in San Francisco through July 3.
Megan out & about yesterday:
On women being in charge of their sexuality:
"Women don’t have to be desperate and try so hard. Allow yourself to be strong and powerful and men will be crawling on their hands and knees. When I'm working, I refuse to flirt. If someone tries, it becomes an endless roast. I'll say, 'Nice beard, buddy' or 'You look fancy!' I know he's spent an hour doing that specific thing to his hair, and the minute I point it out, his game is shattered. I like to have men off their guard. Then you are in charge. You don't ever have to feel like men have power over you."
On someone she finds sexy:
"I think Ellen [DeGeneres] is sexy. Maybe it’s the way she gives off the impression that she’s anti-'the business' even though she’s engaging in it. And humor is always sexy."
On reading Cosmo:
"I remember I used to think it was a big deal, when I was like 15, 16, and I knew that Cosmo was something my mom probably didn’t want me to read, and so it was exciting to get a hold of it because you felt like you were getting a glimpse behind what it was to be a woman; they’re letting you in on womanly secrets."
On whether she considers herself a "girl's girl":
"I consider myself a 'girl's girl' in that I'm not competitive, jealous, or catty. But I don't have a ton of female friends - I have one. Her name is Mindy and she's a facialist. I don't have many guy friends either. I've never been a social butterfly. I don't feel lonely or isolated. I have one really great friend and that's all I need."
On whether she feels like a hot mom:"
"Sure. There's a power that comes with having a child. You've done something incredible that no man could ever do or understand. It is hard to resist letting yourself fall apart physically, because when you're taking care of a child with little or no help, there isn't time to take care of you. I just did Ellen the other day and realized I hadn't had a manicure in seven months. I had these Rihanna-like claws, but they were my toenails!"
True New Yorkers hate when tourists get in the way of their trudge to work through Times Square.
But some even cursed beauty Megan Fox when she shot a film in the famously congested area.
Fox says she was yelled at for “hindering their commute” while she shot Michael Bay’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
“It’s like, we’re working, too,” Fox lamented on the Paramount film’s set.
“We’re making a movie right now. You’re in it. Go see yourself in August. You’re a pleasure.”
Actress, comedian and professional poop joke generator Jenny Slate is what you'd call a rising star. Her new film, Obvious Child, has been praised as a refreshingly modern romantic comedy that de-stigmatises the gross realities of life. In it, her character, Donna Stern, navigates a break up, a flailing career, an unplanned pregnancy, and, ultimately, an abortion. The film reflects women in a post-Girls world – it takes on politically fraught issues like sex and abortion and normalises them for an audience that has been waiting for someone to do so. Slate, 32, embodies this mission effortlessly in real life, too – in her stand-up, on Twitter and with her friends – by just being herself. There are more reasons to love Jenny Slate than we can possibly list, but here are a few.
1. Her parents
Jenny Slate comes from a family of funny voices: hers is childlike, her mother's is deep, and her father's is high and delicate. Here, on Jimmy Kimmel, she paints a picture of the kind of family from which a comedian is born.
3. She gets real about bodies
In Obvious Child, Jenny Slate's character Donna is frank about her ladyparts; her first stand up act begins with, "I used to hide what my vagina does to my underpants."
Offscreen, Slate is no different. "I didn't hit puberty until I was, like, 17, so I love to talk about that," she told Paper Mag. "Before you hit puberty, you have this growing, really urgent sense of horniness." Her leading line in a phone call interview between three friends was, "Okay, so this is the conversation where we talk about what’s wrong with our butts? Fine, I’ll go first: lots of different little cuts all over it." Here, Slate gabs with Pete Holmes about the different timbres of her farts.
4. She and her husband make movies ... for fun
In the Slate-Fleischer-Camp household, Slate says funny things and her husband, Dean Fleischer-Camp, makes them into videos. Among them is the world-famous Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, in which Slate personifies a tiny shell living his emotionally complex life in a human-sized world. Marcel now has over 22m views, a sequel and a picture book. Another short is Self Esteem, where Slate, Fleischer-Camp and comedian Gabe Liedman judgementally review the everyday life of an unknowing woman (also played by Slate).
"It's probably not because she wants to wear leggings," says Voiceover Slate, as Onscreen Slate cries with no shirt on, "but she thinks she's a little fat."
Hip-hop crew abruptly disband one month after release of surprise album
r.i.p. to this incredible band
The One Direction star was one of thousands who went to see the British band, fronted by Chris Martin, perform at the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington, London Tuesday night.
While he’s more accustomed to being the one on the stage making the crowd go wild, Niall admitted he loved taking a backseat to watch Chris, bassist Guy Berryman, guitarist Jonny Buckland and drummer Will Champion wow fans with their latest music.
“The royal Albert hall was rocking tonight!” Niall tweeted after the show. “Went t see Coldplay, was incredible ! Never seen them live before, so was a great experience,” he added (sic).
Apparently the band members, who are promoting their latest release, Ghost Stories, were feeling great about the gig as well.
“Goodnight London. That was a cracker,” a tweet from Coldplay’s verified Twitter account read, with a picture of the packed venue.
Niall meanwhile seems to be making the most of his brief break from 1D’s 'Where We Are' Tour.
The pop star and his bandmates are scheduled to play in Düsseldorf, Germany on Wednesday, but Niall recently issued a plea to some of his very eager fans.
“Can you limit what gets thrown on stage please! Coz somethin thrown at me tonight! Hit my knee! A lot of pain from it!” the 20-year-old tweeted.
“Never wana sound like I'm complaining! But only having my operation 5 months ago, I still get a bit of pain and I'm very scared about it,” he tweeted about the band’s show in Amsterdam last week (sic).
The message came just a few months after 1D took a break at the beginning of the year for Niall to recover from knee surgery.
Although the star was reportedly seen limping in pain off the stage, and his bandmate Harry Styles was also apparently struck by a wayward object, there were no hard feelings.
“Amsterdam thank you for a great couple of shows! Appreciate you coming (sic),” Niall later tweeted.
DETROIT — Madonna, who was “inspired” during a recent visit to Detroit, is donating money toward the construction of a new youth boxing gym and buying iPods, iPads and other supplies for students at a charter school in her hometown, according to a news release issued by the music icon’s publicist Monday.
The statement said Madonna’s donations to three Detroit organizations represent “the first phase of a long-term commitment to” the city.
The Rock and Roll Hall inductee will provide funding for a new facility for the Downtown Youth Boxing Gym, which provides free after-school boxing and educational mentoring to dozens of children; buy new equipment, art and music supplies for the Detroit Achievement Academy; and help out The Empowerment Plan, a nonprofit that employs homeless women who sew garments that are distributed to the homeless.
“I was deeply inspired by the efforts of so many people who I met who have dedicated themselves to helping the kids and adults in Detroit elevate themselves from the cycle of poverty. … It was obvious to me that I had to get involved and be part of the solution to help Detroit recover,” Madonna said in the written statement, referencing the city’s efforts to emerge from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.
“A piece of my heart will always be in Detroit, and I’m humbled to be able to give back to my community,” she said.
The statement does not say how much Madonna is contributing. A message seeking comment was left Monday with the singer’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg.
Madonna, 55, is known for such hits as “Material Girl,” ”Like a Virgin,” ”Papa Don’t Preach” and “Vogue.” She grew up in Bay City, Michigan, and the Detroit suburb of Rochester Hills and entered the Rock Hall of Fame in 2008.

Paul is far right
Paul Mazursky, the innovative and versatile director who showed the absurdity of modern life in such movies as Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and An Unmarried Woman, has died. He was 84.
The filmmaker died of pulmonary cardiac arrest Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said Mazursky's spokeswoman Nancy Willen.
As a talented writer, actor, producer and director, Mazursky racked up five Oscar nominations, mostly for writing such films as Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and Enemies, A Love Story.
He also created memorable roles for the likes of Art Carney, Jill Clayburgh and Natalie Wood. Later in life, Mazursky acted in such TV series as The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm and films such as Carlito's Way and 2 Days in the Valley.
"A true raconteur, Paul brought humor and spirit to the many guild meetings he attended during two decades of service to the DGA," said Directors Guild of America President Paris Barclay. "He shared his provocative views of humanity in his many films, but what he shared with us were quick quips, thoughtful responses and pointed anecdotes always geared toward making us think and feel."
Acting for Kubrick
He was born Irwin Mazursky in 1930 in Brooklyn. During the Depression, the family lived on the small wages his father earned as a laborer for the federal Works Progress Administration. When Mazursky graduated from high school, he changed his name from Irwin, which he had hated, to Paul.
Mazursky had always dreamed of becoming an actor, and he appeared in student plays at Brooklyn College. With the school's permission, he flew to California to act in Fear and Desire, director Stanley Kubrick's first film. When he received bad reviews, Mazursky buckled down to studying acting with a variety of teachers, including Lee Strasberg. But he found the most success behind the camera.
Mazursky and his writing partner Larry Tucker first triumphed with the script for Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, a clever takeoff on the emerging sexual freedom of the late 1960s. Warner Bros. turned it down for fear of its racy subject, but Columbia scooped it up and accepted Mazursky's proviso that he would direct the film.
Natalie Wood and Robert Culp portrayed Carol and Bob, a well-off couple who seek open lives. Dyan Cannon and Elliott Gould played Alice and Ted, who hesitate but acquiesce in Carol and Bob's invitation to wife-swapping. In the end, the quartet bow to the old morality and the wife-swapping remains unconsummated.
Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice was a success at the box office and set up Mazursky as rising director of the new school. His next film was Alex in Wonderland, which was also co-written by Tucker, starring Donald Sutherland as a young director who, like Mazursky, had a hit first movie and mulled about what to make for his second. It was scorned by critics.
Mazursky ended his relationship with Tucker and spent six months with his family in Rome and London, recovering from his failure. He later returned to filmmaking, continuing with his socially adept films, many of which he wrote, produced, directed and acted in, including the autobiographical Next Stop, Greenwich Village, An Unmarried Woman, Tempest, Moscow on the Hudson and Down and Out in Beverly Hills.
"I know there are some wonderful filmmakers with really tragic views of life," Mazursky told the Atlantic magazine. "But for me absurdity is just around the corner. I see it all the time."
Several Oscar Nominations
Over the years, he was nominated four times for screenplay Oscars: 1969's Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, 1974's Harry and Tonto, 1978's An Unmarried Woman and 1989's Enemies, A Love Story. As a co-producer, he also shared in the best picture nomination for An Unmarried Woman.
Mazursky returned to semi-autobiography in his poorly received 1993 film The Pickle, about an aging movie director grappling with professional and personal stumbles. In an Associated Press interview, he objected to the notion someone had expressed to him that the film's hero, played by Danny Aiello, was despicable.
"Every director I've met who was involved with a movie is self-centered," he said. "Directors are not walking around like Mahatma Gandhi saying, 'Oh, don't worry about the movie.' They're worried about their movie! They're crazed!"
He is survived by his wife, daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchild.
An Unmarried Woman remains one of my faves. Also loved him in Once and Again
Since I will be raising her alone I think it’s just perfect that I’m having a girl for my first child instead of a boy because this way it will probably be easier on me. I could tell her about Mommy’s entire life and why it’s so important to not make the same mistakes I made. I want my baby girl to grow up a very strong, and independent woman just like I am, and you know what? I know that she will! My daughter will grow up to be a leader and stand up for all of the people who cannot stand up for themselves. My daughter will be beautiful just like her mama, but at the same time I will raise her to be a humble and loving person who will respect herself and others. I know I’m going to be a fantastic Mother to my little Warrior Princess Baby Girl because she will see how much crap that her mommy has been through in life and that alone will give her so much character and strength just through me alone! She will definitely not be a pushover! She’s going to be a smart and feisty little one…. with freckles of course! hehehehe
Each day that passes I get more and more excited about having my own little warrior princess come into this world and fill it with more joy! On top of that I’m sure she will also have Mommy’s freckles, strong personality, put up with nobody’s crap in life, have a huge loving heart and be compassionate to others, and ohhhhh the possibilities are endless! I already KNOW that my little girl will be exactly like her Mama but an even better version of me because I will make sure she knows NOT to make the same mistakes I did while growing up and I know she will listen. She will respect me because I have life experience to back up everything I tell her and I just cannot wait to shower her with my love every single day for the rest of her life! Plus, she’s going to be a SCORPIO BABY JUST LIKE HER MAMA!! OHHHH WATCH OUT WORLD!!! WE HAVE ANOTHER FIESTY LITTLE ONE COMING INTO THIS WORLD!! BE PREPARED !!! LOL
Ohhhhhh Baby Tila….. do you know that you’re already a future heart breaker to come??? Oh boy! Please don’t give Mommy too much headache ok??? For now… let’s just hope you stay Mommy’s little Princess for as long as possible!! I LOVE YOU SO, SO, SO, SO MUCH BABY GIRL!! SO MUCH THAT YOU ARE MAKING ME CRY RIGHT NOW!! YOU WILL BE MY BEST FRIEND, MY ANGEL, MY WORLD, MY EVERYTHING! I CANNOT WAIT TO HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS AND SPOIL YOU WITH ALL THE LOVE THAT YOU COULD EVER DREAM OF!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE GOING TO BE MY SPOILED LITTLE PRINCESS!!! And from the looks of mommy’s humongus belly…. you are going to be a BIG, TALL, HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL, spoiled princess!!! hehehe

Escapism has always been one of the biggest draws of cinema. Whether an audience just wants to hang out with a couple of funny people and laugh at their jokes for 90 minutes or get sucked into a 120 minute-long space opera complete with starship battles, the closer a person can get to the movie world in a theater, the better. Enter the new theater technology known as 4DX, which, for the first time ever, was used in the U.S. this past weekend. The chairs are set upon gimbals to move around and shake, theaters can replicate various smells, and the seats are even programmed to blow air and water on the audience. All of this is synced up with the events up on the big screen.
And what better way to test out the new technology than with one of the most spectacular, action-packed movies that have been released so far this year? The first ever 4DX screening in the United States was of Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and from Yahoo!'s description it sounds like one hell of a ride. The article mentions events like air blowing in your face as Black Widow's fired bullets fly across the screen, quick chair jolts as Captain America throws his shield around to take down bad guys, and even a little splash as Nick Fury drives through a puddle.
Yahoo! has the scoop on the new specialty screening format, which was just recently installed at the Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14 in Downtown Los Angeles - the first of many planned locations. Created by the South Korean company CJ 4DPlex, the technology works by engaging all five of a persons senses while watching a movie.
For a detailed breakdown of exactly how it all works, watch the video below. I would highly recommend skipping past the intro and going straight to the 2:10 mark, which is when it begins to break down the various sensory stimulants that are available during a 4DX screening.
t's a shame there probably wasn't an opportunity to use the bubble effect during Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
If you want to try out 4DX for yourself, know that it will cost you a pretty penny. At the LA Live - which is admittedly a pretty expensive theater normally - a ticket for a 4DX screening of Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction will run you $26.75 per ticket ($8 more than a standard 3D ticket).
While I'm not looking forward to paying that tab, I will say that I am curious about testing 4DX at least once. While it may not necessarily be the future of cinema, it could at the very least be a fun way to see an action flick. For more information about the company and when a theater might be coming to a location near you, head over to 4DX's official website.
"Captain America 2" raked in $7.3 million during its run from April 3 to May 30 as box office revenue was up nearly 12 percent from the first six months of 2013.
Disney/Marvel Studios has topped the Hong Kong box office yet again, with its Captain America 2 coming in at No. 1 for the first half of 2014.
Captain America 2 raked in $7.3 million during its run from April 3 to May 30, according to Hong Kong Box Office Ltd., a subsidiary of Hong Kong Motion Picture Industry Association and Hong Kong Theatres Association. The sequel was followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in second place, which took in $7 million; and in third place, X-Men: Days of Future Past, which took in $6.5 million.
But these records might be short-lived, as Transformers: Age of Extinction amassed $5.6 million from June 26-30.
The highest grossing Hong Kong movie in the first six months of the year was Golden Chickensss, starring Sandra Ng and a number of local stars, which took in $5.3 million from January to March.
Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, trails behind, with $4.9 million in sixth place.
The total number of films released during the first six months of the year in Hong Kong was 159, with 25 local films and 134 foreign imports.
The total box office was $110 million, an 11.8% increase from the same period last year, in which the total gross was $98.5 million.

3 months later and still slaying. Would you pay that hefty ticket price to see a movie in 4DX?
