Maureen Montagne was crowned Miss Globe 2021 in Albania, continuing the Philippines’ dominance in international pageants this year. Her victory came just days after Cinderella Obeita, a classmate in Binibining Pilipinas, was crowned Miss Intercontinental 2021 in Egypt.

Maureen Montagne won the Miss Globe title after defeating over 40 other contenders, giving her the Philippines’ second Miss Globe winner following Ann Colis in 2015.

Candidates from Nigeria (first runner-up), Turkey (second runner-up), Venezuela (third runner-up), and Canada (fourth runner-up) are among Montagne’s runners-up (fourth runner-up).

Montagne was asked about beauty and how it may be enhanced during the question and answer session.

She replied: “I think that true beauty comes from within. To be a Miss Globe is to be a beauty that inspires. What makes us beautiful is our smiles, it’s what we do for our community. It’s how we give back to others, and it’s how we carry ourselves through life.”

“I believe that everyone has beauty inside of them, and I believe it is our duty to share it with the world, and to give back, and to truly inspire others.”

‘Uncharted’ tops Presidents Day box office with $51M

Despite the fact that Tom Holland isn’t wearing his Spider-Man suit in “Uncharted,” the action-adventure is still doing well in North America.

Despite the fact that Tom Holland isn’t wearing his Spider-Man costume in ‘Uncharted‘, the action film is still doing well in North America.

According to studio predictions released Sunday, the video game adaptation starring Holland and Mark Wahlberg would gross $51 million over Presidents Day weekend. The film is expected to generate $44.2 million from Friday to Sunday, putting it at No. 1 at the box office.

It’s the biggest opening weekend since “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and it’s enough for the industry to breathe a sigh of relief, even if it’s not a superhero payday. ” In addition, it drew a small crowd and placed second.

The unpredictable nature of pandemic-era audiences made Uncharted a bit of a wild card, and the film’s bad critical reception had some going into the weekend with cautious hope. The Ruben Fleischer-directed film, which is based on a PlayStation game, premiered on 4,275 screens.

In a statement, Josh Greenstein, the president of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group, said, “This result is yet another incredible testament to the hunger for the theatrical experience that Sony Pictures banked on.”

“Spider-Man: No Way Home,” a smashing blockbuster from Sony, was also released. “Late last year, it was only in theaters.” The Holland-led project has already grossed over $770 million in North America, making it the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time.

“Whether he’s Peter Parker or Nathan Drake, Tom Holland is a megastar,” said Paul Dergarabedian, Comscore’s senior media analyst. “Breaking out of that position and achieving great box office success outside of that is a tough go for many of the performers who have portrayed superheroes.”

Uncharted still has a long way to go to make up for its $120 million production expense, which will almost certainly be largely offset by overseas profits. Its global total has already reached $100 million, and unlike “Spider-Man,” “Uncharted” will have a Chinese release on March 14.

This weekend, Channing Tatum co-directed (with his longtime producing partner Reid Carolin) and starred in “Dog,” which was released on 3,677 screens. United Artists predicts a weekend take of $15.1 million and a total take of $18.1 million if Monday is included. In the film, Tatum portrays an Army ranger who is tasked with transporting a traumatized military dog from Oregon to Arizona for her handler’s funeral. Furthermore, it only cost $15 million to produce.

According to a PostTrak study, 53% of the audience for “Dog” on opening weekend was over 35 years old, and 54% were female.

It feels like 2019 all over again,” Dergarabedian added, referring to two films that did exceptionally well.

“Death on the Nile,” directed by Kenneth Branagh, came in fourth place with $6.3 million in its second weekend, trailing only “Spider-Man,” and “Jackass Forever” came in fifth with $5.2 million.

The momentum from this weekend, according to Dergarabedian, should be the “ideal leadup” to Warner Bros.’ “The Batman” on March 4, which is already highly anticipated.

“Consider how many people were exposed to trailers at the movies this weekend,” Dergarabedian remarked. “For ‘The Batman,’ this is fantastic news.”

According to Comscore, ticket sales in the United States and Canada are expected to be up from Friday to Sunday. On Monday we’ll see the announcement of the final domestic data.

1. “Uncharted,” $44.2 million.

2. “Dog,” $15.1 million.

3. “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” $7.2 million.

4. “Death on the Nile,” $6.3 million.

5. “Jackass Forever,” $5.2 million.

6. “Marry Me,” $3.7 million.

7. “Sing 2,” $2.8 million.

8. “Scream,” $2 million.

9. “Blacklight,” $1.8 million.

10. “The Cursed,” $1.7 million.

Spotify is testing with a TikTok-style video feed in its app

Spotify will soon feature short vertical clips similar to TikTok.

Published

on

Short vertical clips with iconic music playing in the background helped TikTok become a billion-dollar company. Spotify, the music streaming service, appears to be exploring a feature that displays a feed of vertical videos, emulating an empire that other digital businesses want to mimic.

Discover is the name of the functionality, which was discovered by Chris Messina in a Spotify TestFlight build (TestFlight is the iOS way for developers to release beta versions). In the app’s UI, there’s a new tab called Discover.

Users may navigate through clips by swiping vertically, and they can like a clip by pressing the heart button, a rather familiar design that clearly takes inspiration from TikTok.

When TechCrunch inquired about the Discover function, Spotify was terse, merely stating that it is a test to determine if the concept has any validity, implying that Discover may be scrapped before a wider rollout. Alternatively, if it proves to be popular, it could be made available to all users in a future update.

Spotify isn’t afraid to steal concepts from other businesses. Greenroom, a competitor to Clubhouse, was recently created, and it was also testing a Stories feature in January. Though it is far from alone in this, see, for example, Clubhouse is also a competitor of Twitter’s Spaces. Users may swipe vertically to explore between the clips and tap the heart icon to like a clip, a rather familiar layout that clearly takes inspiration from TikTok.
