At the same time, Disney’s in-person skipping of CinemaCon comes at a suspicious time as the studio recently celebrated the $219M WW theatrical-day-and-date Disney+ Premier opening of Black Widow. The pic posted the largest second weekend drop for a Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe title at the box office last weekend, and was pirated extensively, with the National Association of Theatre Owners (which hosts CinemaCon) blasting the studio for decimating the theatrical window and Black Widow‘s film revenue-generating potential.
While Jungle Cruise is currently the only other title scheduled to go theatrical-day-and-date on Disney+ Premier, there’s a great fear among the industry and exhibition that Disney will continue this radical dynamic window practice as Wall Street goes hog wild for streaming.
All of this said, it’s very hard for Disney to walk into CinemaCon’s hub Caesars Palace this year and hold their heads up high if they continue to experiment with the theatrical window, and celebrate it.Read More..

Lunar lovers, grab a cozy spot outside and set your sights to the southeast to gaze upon July's full moon, dubbed the "buck" moon, as it rises Friday after sunset.
July marks the time when male deer — bucks — grow out their antlers, granting this month's full moon the "buck" moniker, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.
The Comanche people call this event "urui mua," or "hot moon," and the Kalapuya people refer to it as "ameku," meaning "mid summer moon," according to the Western Washington University Planetarium website.Read More..
Now, after years of observations of a pair of Jupiter-like exoplanets nearly 400 light-years from Earth, astronomers have found the next best thing: a disk of debris orbiting one of these worlds, a ring of rock and gas gradually coalescing under its own gravity.
In other words, astronomers have caught a circumplanetary foundry in the act of making moons.This is the first time such a feature has been unambiguously detected. Read More..
To test the system, Fordyce and Herschlag chose a bacterial enzyme called PafA that is involved in modifying other proteins.
They created a ‘library’ of different mutant enzymes by designing DNA sequences in which each of PafA’s 526 amino acids was swapped for a different amino acid.
A robot put these DNA sequences into individual wells on the chip, then added reagents that allowed the proteins to be produced.Read More..
While total solar eclipses blot out the Sun completely, annular solar eclipses leave that solar halo around the Moon, creating an arguably cooler picture for viewers on Earth.
This happens because the Moon is more distant from Earth during an annular solar eclipse, making it too small in our field of view to fully cover the Sun.If you missed this annular eclipse, not to worry. Read More..

They would not be harmful to humans, the researchers told CNN.Ice captures the contents of the atmosphere through time, including viruses and microbes, according to the study."Ice provides a frozen archive," study co-author Lonnie Thompson, professor of earth sciences at Ohio State and senior research scientist at the university's Byrd Polar Research Center, told CNN on Thursday.Relatively little is known about viruses in glaciers, but the field is growing in importance as ice around the world melts as a result of climate change."It's really capturing the public eye," said Thompson, who added that the Covid-19 pandemic has raised awareness of the importance of learning about microbial communities.Co-author Matthew Sullivan, professor of microbiology at Ohio State and director of the university's Center of Microbiome Science, said the methods used in the study allow scientists to assess the evolutionary rates of viruses that are present in different layers of the ice cores.This could also have benefits in the search for life on Mars, for example."Once you've developed that new technology it can help you answer questions in other really difficult environments," Sullivan said.
