Crowded House Dropping New Set Under New Line-up

July 02, 2007 09:47:02 GMT

In anticipation of their huge come back, Australian rock outfit Crowded House has decided to fold vocalist Neil Finn's intended solo album to be the band's first album in 10 years. "Time on Earth" is the band's fifth studio effort and the first without late drummer Paul Hester.

It took Hester's death in 2005 to draw the band together. Finn said, "We took a long break, and it wasn't destined to be a break at the time when we decided to break up, but I wanted to go and do my own thing, and I kind of reached a point where I needed to get away from it. In the end, the music drew us back to it because Nick (Seymour) and I started playing again and something in the sound of that and the feeling of the collaboration just drew me to the idea of being in a band again."

Weekend North American Box Office of June 28 - July 1, 2007

July 02, 2007 06:53:35 GMT

Ratatouille picture
Taking last week baton as the first runner of domestic box office weekend is "Ratatouille". Racking in $47,227,000, the Pixar production places itself high above predicted runner this week, "Live Free or Die Hard". While the action movie has stolen an early start, it fails to beat the "mouse" and can only be satisfied getting the runner up post. The fourth installment of Die Hard closes down to $33,150,000.

Despite the #1 slot, "Ratatouille" is still a far reach to Pixar's highest grossing flick. For Bruce Willis meanwhile, it maybe is a personal satisfaction after all with his charm as John McClane still 'kicking'. Former champion "Evan Almighty" drops two places to #3 with total earning less than half of last week at $15,089,000. It is only a one third run for the Steve Carell comedy to fill in the budget of $175 mill.
