Judge sentences man who sent pipe bombs to Dems to 20 years

Judge sentences man who sent pipe bombs to Dems to 20 years A Florida amateur body builder who admitted sending inoperative pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and CNN has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff sentenced Cesar Sayoc after he pleaded guilty to explosives charges for mailing 16 pipe bombs days before the midterm elections last fall. The one-time stripper and pizza delivery man from Aventura, Florida, apologized to his victims, saying he is "so very sorry for what I did." Sayoc says he never intended for the explosives to work when he mailed them to Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, actor Robert De Niro and several members of Congress.

His new stalker thriller The Fanatic is bombing in theaters this weekend in what's sure to be a career-worst opening for Travolta by the time final grosses for the long Labor Day holiday are tallied.

On Friday, The Fanatic grossed a mere $3,153 from 52 theaters scattered across the U.S. for a location average of roughly $60, according to those with access to grosses via Comscore. That means the movie may not earn more than $15,000 for the four-day holiday weekend. In a handful of theaters, it grossed $10 or less; the highest gross was $736 at the Arena Cinelounge in Hollywood.

EPA reverses approval for 'cyanide bombs' used to kill wildlife

EPA reverses approval for 'cyanide bombs' used to kill wildlife In a surprising reversal, the Environmental Protection Agency announced on Thursday it is walking back a recent decision to reauthorize use of M-44s, also known as "cyanide bombs," to kill coyotes, foxes, and other wild animals. M-44s are spring-loaded traps filled with sodium cyanide, which Wildlife Services officials use when they kill animals for ranchers and farmers. Last year, the federal agency killed more than 1.5 million animals, with about 6,500 dying because of M-44s. These traps have also killed pets and injured people who stumbled upon them.

The Fanatic — starring Travolta as the obsessed fan of a movie star — marks the fourth bomb in a row for the actor.

Critics have ravaged the indie thriller, directed by Fred Durst, best known as the frontman for Limp Bizkit.

The Fanatic is the first title from Quiver Distribution, launched in May by former Lionsgate executive Jeff Sackman and Berry Meyerowitz, who founded Phase 4 films and more recently worked at eOne.

Quiver's aim is to release films across all platforms, both in cinemas and on digital. The Fanatic is only playing in a smattering of theaters before being made available on premium VOD Sept. 6. Still, the psychological thriller is faring even worse than Travolta's In a Valley of Violence (2016) and Killing Season (2013), both of which were also dual theatrical/VOD titles.

In a Valley of Violence, also starring Ethan Hawke, took in $29,343 from 33 theaters on its first weekend before topping out at $53,647 (its opening day gross was $10,722). That was preceded by a three-day launch of $27,713 from 12 locations for Killing Season, co-starring Robert De Niro, which finished its brief run in theaters with $53,646.

Travolta insisted that his last movie, Gotti, receive a more traditional release, but it didn't help matters. Directed by Kevin Connolly, the 2018 mob biopic opened to $1.7 million from 503 locations before topping out at dismal $4.3 million domestically, the worst showing for a movie starring Travolta in a lead role.

The actor's last bonafide box office hit was Hairspray in 2007.

Durst's previous directing credits include the indie films The Education of Charlie Banks and The Longshots.

So far, Quiver isn't officially reporting grosses for The Fanatic.
