‘Dune’ release shifts to October 2021 in another blow to movie theater business

The release of “Dune,” a big-budget adaptation of the seminal sci-fi novel, will be delayed by nearly a full year, Warner Bros. has confirmed — dealing yet another blow to the pandemic-battered movie theater industry.

Week 2 Takeaways: Big Dak Comeback, Falcons Blow It, Josh Allen on Fire

Reacting and overreacting to everything that happened in the Week 2 Sunday afternoon games…

Things That Made Me Giddy

The Come-Dak. Dak-Back? Dak Had a Comeback: After a complete meltdown for Dallas in the first quarter that included three lost fumbles and a failed fake punt, Prescott led touchdown drives on four of their first five second-half possessions and moved them into position for the winning field-goal. And he did it all with both starting tackles missing, and after briefly leaving with an injury himself. On the day, he was 34-for-47 for 450 as the Cowboys rolled up 570 yards of offense and 30 second-half points.

Mike McCarthy’s Texas Instruments Calculator: The one he bought during his year out of football to discover analytics says his team just improved its win percentage by 500 points.
