Antiques collector Bruce Wescott of Hull, Mass., said he didn’t realize the 19th-century cannonball he had was dangerous. Wescott took the item — which had been in a box of antiques he bought last year — to a gun store Wednesday, hoping to sell it. The proprietor recognized the hazard and asked Wescott to leave. He then went home with his cannonball and called authorities. A state bomb squad removed it and safely blew it up. (AP)

THE DISTRICT Heeding the struggles of D.C. residents hassled while ordering beers or trying to board flights, the city government is ditching “District of Columbia” on driver’s licenses and reverting back to “Washington, D.C.” The appearance of the city’s formal name on licenses since 2013 has been blamed for confusion, with reports of concessions staff at sporting events, clerks at liquor stores and even airport screeners apparently thinking denizens of the nation’s capital were presenting ID from Colombia or another distant land. Many licenses already say Washington, D.C., because they were issued before 2013 and haven’t expired. “The Administration determined ‘Washington, D.C.’ better represents the city and will reduce confusion in other jurisdictions,” said Lucinda Babers,

director of the District’s Department of Motor Vehicles. The change, first reported by WAMU, takes effect in June for people renewing and applying for licenses. And it renders moot efforts to teach people that the District of Columbia is, in fact, a real place on American soil. The Transportation Security Administration included instruction on recognizing D.C. licenses in its training sessions after reports of agents who weren’t sure whether to let residents with
District of Columbia licenses enter gates. And the National Football League sent its teams photos of the old and new D.C. licenses to share with concessions staff after a constituent complained to D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton that he was asked to fork over a passport while trying to order beers at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey. “Poor things, they are going to have to be untrained now,” Norton joked.

Gov. calls off execution of death row inmate

SPIKE IN PERMIT REQUESTS
A busy year for demonstrations could cost the District millions if Congress doesn’t act THE DISTRICT The major protests in D.C. that have greeted President Trump’s first year in office are set to return in force, continuing an already expensive year for city officials who work to keep people safe during mass gatherings. With polls showing Trump facing unusually strong disapproval of his agenda in the first 100 days of a presidency, organizers are promising spring rallies for a variety of mostly liberal causes, including science, climate change, immigrants’ rights, gay rights and arts funding. Last weekend, demonstrators called on Trump to release his tax returns. D.C. officials are accustomed to accommodating First Amendment demonstrations. But there’s a real chance the city will burn through the money it gets every year from Congress to cover
police overtime and other costs. For local law enforcement, responding to protests is usually no big deal. The violence around Trump’s inauguration, when a group of self-described anarchists broke windows at downtown businesses and set fire to a limousine, was unusual and led to hundreds of arrests. No one was arrested during the Women’s March on Washington, which drew hundreds of thousands of people the day after Trump was sworn in, making it one of the largest demonstrations in the city’s history. “It’s the nation’s capital. It’s where people come to voice their grievances with the government,” Metropolitan Police Department Chief Peter Newsham said. “We welcome that.” The bean-counting, handled by the city’s homeland security department, is the tough part.
The increase in the number of requests the National Park Service has received this year for permits to protest on D.C.’s federal land over the number at this time last year, said Mike Litterst, a spokesman for the agency. The agency had received 197 permit requests for demonstrations as of April 19, compared with 148 at the same time in 2016. (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Congress sets aside money every year to reimburse the city for the cost of First Amendment activities. That number fluctuates yearly but is usually around $15 million, said Christopher Geldart, the city’s former homeland security director. The biggest cost is police overtime; the department pays officers extra to staff demonstrations so it’s not taking anyone off regular patrol. For the current fiscal year, Congress has set aside $14.9 million to reimburse the city, and $3.8 million of that had already been spent by Jan. 1, which doesn’t include the women’s march. The city is also still seeking reimbursement for what it spent on the

The Women’s March in January was one of the first major demonstrations against President Trump.
inauguration. While Congress allocated $19.9 million, the city spent more than $30 million. By contrast, Congress gave $50 million to the cities that hosted last year’s presidential nominating conventions — much smaller events than the inauguration that attract a fraction of the crowd. Geldart said that if Congress fully reimburses D.C. for the inauguration, there should be enough to pay for the women’s march and all the other planned demonstrations. But there’s no guarantee D.C. will be successful with a Republican Congress. It’s also not clear which protests will gather momentum. City officials track bus, train, air and hotel bookings to get a sense of what to expect. For the hospitality industry, demonstrations are a mixed bag, said Elliott Ferguson, who heads Destination D.C., the city’s tourism bureau. On one hand, the crowds spend money at hotels and restaurants while they’re in town. But international visitors could also be turned off if they perceive Washington as a cauldron of dissent. “If you’re marching for immigration rights or whatever the case is, and it’s tied to Washington, then it becomes, ‘All bad things happen in Washington, D.C.,’ ” Ferguson said.

The demonstration Thursday was intended as a protest against federal interference with states that have legal marijuana.

local Union dissent highlights challenges Wiedefeld’s turnaround plan faces TRANSPORTATION General Manager Paul Wiedefeld’s ambitious rescue plan for Metro drew a generally positive response Thursday, but a bitter dissent from the agency’s largest union was a sign of the formidable obstacles he faces. Wiedefeld’s recommendations are “bad for riders, bad for workers and bad for the region,” ATU Local 689 said in a statement. The union, which represents about 9,200 Metro workers, said Wiedefeld’s plans to outsource services and provide less-generous pensions to future hires aim “to balance the agency’s budget on the back of [Metro’s]
hard-working employees.” Overall, however, elected officials, transit advocates and business groups praised Wiedefeld for offering what many called a “reasonable” plan that deals head-on with the tough challenges facing the transit agency. Although many disagreed with individual details, and the region’s top Republican officials were distinctly skeptical, most welcomed Wiedefeld’s call for new taxes or other dedicated funding sources to channel an additional $500 million a year to Metro. The money would go to buy new railcars, buses and other equipment, and to perform the maintenance necessary to restore service quality. “This proposal appears to be a realistic and responsible contribution to the regional discussion

Many politicians and analysts said it will be necessary to go further, by restructuring the Metro board of directors and adopting other reforms. “I think you need some governance changes to show that the people who will be spending the money will be doing a good job,” said Maryland Del.

Cherokee Nation files suit over opioid scourge HEALTH Lawyers for the Cherokee Nation filed a lawsuit in tribal court Thursday accusing the nation’s top drug distributors and pharmacies of flooding communities in Oklahoma with hundreds of millions of addictive pain pills. The suit alleges that the companies violated sovereign Cherokee laws by failing to prevent the diversion of pain pills to the black market, profiting from the growing opioid epidemic and decimating communities across the nation’s 14 counties in the state.
It is the first time an Indian nation has filed suit against companies for the damage done by powerful pain pills such as oxycodone and hydrocodone. The suit names the three largest drug distributors in the United States: McKesson, Cardinal Health and AmerisourceBergen. Also named are some of the biggest names in the retail drug business: CVS, Walgreens and Wal-Mart. Lawyers say that the drug distributors and pharmacies knew or should have known that the amounts of drugs they
were sending and dispensing to the Cherokee Nation were suspicious. In 2015, the lawsuit says, nearly 845 million milligrams of opioids were distributed in the Cherokee Nation. That is enough to provide every adult and child with 955 5mg pills — one of the most commonly prescribed doses. Todd Hembree, attorney general for the Cherokees, said that the companies’ “main goal is profit, and this scourge has cost lives and the Cherokee Nation millions.” SCOTT HIGHAM AND LENNY

You can preorder your own later this year, but it won’t be cheap — between $1.3 million and $1.6 million. You would also need a pilot’s license. Several companies are working on flying cars, either like AeroMobil’s two-seater, which needs a runway (not the highway), or others that function more like helicopters, lifting off vertically. The AeroMobil has a driving range of about 62 miles and a top land speed of 99 mph. When flying, its maximum cruising range is 466 miles. It takes about three minutes for the car to transform into a plane. (AP)

Protesters challenging Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro march Thursday through the streets of Caracas.
GM plant in Venezuela seized as protests swell Action may be attempt to provoke U.S., distract from opposition rallies VENEZUELA General Motors announced Thursday that it was shuttering its operations in Venezuela after authorities seized its factory in the country, a move that could draw the Trump administration into the escalating chaos engulfing the South American nation after days of deadly protests. The plant in Valencia was confiscated Wednesday as antigovernment protesters clashed with security forces and progovernment groups in a country battered by economic troubles, including food shortages and
triple-digit inflation. Three people were killed and hundreds arrested in the deadliest day of protests since the unrest began three weeks ago. GM called the expropriation of its factory “an illegal judicial seizure of its assets.” The company, which employs nearly 2,700 workers in the country, isn’t the first foreign firm whose assets have been confiscated by Venezuelan authorities, but those actions have typically been preceded by repeated public threats from the socialist government. Venezuelan officials offered no explanation for the country’s seizure of the GM facility, but the timing of the move suggests President Nicolas Maduro may be looking to escalate tensions
with the U.S. and blame his government’s struggles on a brewing confrontation with the Trump administration. Maduro claims his opponents are colluding with U.S. authorities to overthrow him, and he has placed Venezuelan security forces on high alert. But it was unclear if the GM seizure was meant as some form of retaliation for the alleged plots. Raul Gallegos, the author of a book on Venezuela and a Colombia-based analyst, said this is a “test case” for the Trump administration: “His response to a rogue nation taking over the assets of a brand-name U.S. company will be indicative of the road it wants to take with Venezuela.”

A Silicon Valley perk: Time off for activism Silicon Valley companies have long been known for employee perks, such as free massages or dog-friendly offices. Now some are adding another incentive to attract and retain workers: paid time off to protest or engage in other political activism. The new policies come as some tech companies take a stand against President Trump’s goal of tightening restrictions for foreign workers, who play a huge role in Silicon Valley. Fauna, a database startup based in San Francisco, recently began allowing its 13 employees to take unlimited paid leave to participate in rallies or other civic activities. “Since there’s been such a divide in our country, we felt we should be very explicit about our policy,” said recruiting and retention director Amna Pervez, adding that the company also provides unlimited vacation time. A number of other startups, including Turbine Labs, Buoyant and Jelly Industries, also have signed on to provide paid time for politics. Facebook is letting employees take time off to participate in proimmigration rallies May 1. More than 15 percent of Facebook employees used temporary work visas last year — a higher percentage than at Google, Apple, Amazon or Microsoft, according to a Reuters analysis of U.S. Labor Department filings.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told France’s BFM television that the gunman got out of a car that pulled up beside a police vehicle and opened fire on the police officers. The attacker then took off running and was shot to death, Brandet said. “It’s too early to say what’s behind this, but clearly police were the target,” he said. “We don’t know yet what his motivations were.” French police said they have opened a terrorism investigation in connection with the attack.

tourists and commuters — sent pedestrians fleeing into side streets, witnesses said. Police blocked people from approaching the scene and ordered tourists back into their hotels as they sealed off the area. The attack came just two days after authorities arrested two men in the southern city of Marseille on suspicion of plotting what Paris prosecutors described as an “imminent” and “violent” assault. President Trump called it a “terrible thing,” adding that terrorism “never ends.” He offered his condolences to France. James M c Auley and William Branigin (The Washington Post)

Paris A gunman opened fire on French police Thursday on a renowned Paris boulevard, killing one and wounding two others before being fatally shot himself in an incident that shook France just three days before a crucial election. The French Interior Ministry, confirming the shooting, said two police officers were “seriously wounded” and that security forces gunned down the attacker. The ministry said the person fired on a police car. Through the Islamic Stateaffiliated Amaq news agency, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that it was carried out by a Belgian national identified only as Abu Yusuf. A spokeswoman for the Paris police, Johanna Primevert, said the gunman attacked police guarding an area near the Franklin Roosevelt metro station Thursday night at the center of the heavily traveled ChampsElysees avenue, The Associated Press reported. She said the attacker appeared to act alone, but other officials said it was too soon to say whether he might have had an accomplice. The Reuters news agency reported that police issued an arrest warrant for a second suspect

U.N. report: Government offensive in South Sudan’s Jonglei region caused 100K to flee
Media With Bill O’Reilly’s ouster from the Fox News Channel, the hard part may be over for the scandal-scarred network. Now the harder part begins. His abrupt firing Wednesday puts the leading cable news network in rebuilding mode, beset by uncertainty. Will O’Reilly’s audience of 4 million viewers stick around without him on the air? Will advertisers that abandoned O’Reilly return to back his replacement? “The departure of O’Reilly is a big hit to FNC, but it is by no means fatal,” said Jeffrey McCall, a DePauw University professor who studies the news media. “For one thing, the [Fox] brand is bigger than O’Reilly, and further, the people who watch really have nowhere else to go for the kind of news they seek. CNN and MSNBC will not benefit from O’Reilly’s departure.” O’Reilly — who was fired after the sponsor boycott, which followed a New York Times report that he and Fox had paid millions to settle harassment allegations against him — is expected to get severance pay of about $25 million, a source told The Washington Post. The boycott is showing signs of receding. MercedesBenz, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and health care company Sanofi said Thursday they are “re-evaluating” their plans.

Nate Schmidt has shown patience this season that has paid off for him and the Caps in the playoffs.
3 THINGS TO WATCH
Caps look to go up 3-2
CAPITALS VS. MAPLE LEAFS | GAME 5: 7 P.M. FRIDAY, CSN
Schmidt’s speed kills
When Washington tied the series 2-2 with Toronto, it calmed hysterical fans and reclaimed home-ice advantage. Now the Caps will host two of three potential games left. GABE HIATT (EXPRESS)
Alzner is considered to be day-to-day and skated Wednesday afternoon. But even when he does get healthy, it’s unclear if Schmidt will come out of the lineup because his speed is wellsuited for this series. For Schmidt, this is a sort of reward for his steadfastness. A year ago, Washington dealt for Mike Weber at the trade deadline, cutting into Schmidt’s playing time down the stretch. When Schmidt had a costly turnover in the postseason, he was benched. This season, Schmidt was a regular, one of the Capitals’ most improved players on the blue line. But he got pushed out of the rotation by the trade-deadline addition of Kevin Shattenkirk. Schmidt, who is in his fourth season, remained patient as the team’s seventh defenseman, and he’s played even better in the opportunities he’s had since Shattenkirk came aboard. This week, Schmidt acknowledged that the
NHL PLAYOFFS Capitals coach Barry Trotz got the message from Nate Schmidt on Wednesday night, when the defenseman picked up his second assist in as many games and would have scored a goal if not for goalie interference during Washington’s Game 4 win at Toronto. “Right now, he’s making a statement going, ‘You’re not getting my spot back,’ ” Trotz said after the 5-4 victory. “That’s good on Nate.” Schmidt got in the lineup for Game 3 because Karl Alzner was ruled out with an undisclosed upper-body injury for the second game in a row. The best skater on the Capitals’ blue line, Schmidt has impressed in the past two games against the young, speedy Leafs. On Monday, he was on the ice for all of his team’s goals. On Wednesday, he assisted on Washington’s first of the game and was on the ice for the game-winner by T.J. Oshie.

SCHMIDT’S ICE TIME
The playoff career-high ice time for Capitals defender Nate Schmidt in Game 4, when he picked up his second assist in as many games. Schmidt, 25, was the seventh blueliner before Karl Alzner suffered an upper-body injury, but may have played well enough to stay in the rotation when Alzner returns. I.K.
trade for Shattenkirk was hard for him personally because it meant he wouldn’t be playing. “When you lose a spot to a guy like that, it makes it a little
easier to swallow. ... He’s a tremendous player, and for me, you can actually learn a little bit from him. That’s the best you can do,” Schmidt said. Shattenkirk appreciated how welcome Schmidt made him feel despite the potential awkwardness. On Wednesday, Schmidt was part of a top-four pairing with John Carlson. When Washington was shorthanded in a five-onthree situation to start the third period, Trotz showed trust in Schmidt by having him the ice. “Fantastic person,” Trotz said of Schmidt. “He brings tons of energy. His drivetrain is real high. ... He’s got an opportunity and he’s making the most of it.” ISABELLE
Hard time for Holtby The Caps led the NHL with 2.16 goals allowed per game in the regular season, but Braden Holtby has given up four in three straight games and 14 overall in the series.
2 Ovechkin’s hot streak Alex Ovechkin went scoreless with just one shot on goal in Game 1 but has three goals on 17 shots in the past three games. In 88 career playoff games, he’s posted 85 points.
1 Oshie in charge After two Game 4 goals, T.J. Oshie has the most points (6) in the series. The first-line wing needs to stay hot to guard against another late surge by Toronto.

YEARS BETWEEN CAPITALS’ PLAYOFF MARKS
The number of years since a Washington player had scored two goals in the first period of a playoff game, which Toronto native Tom Wilson, left, did Wednesday night in a 5-4 win at the Maple Leafs. Matt Bradley did it in a 4-0 win for the Capitals over the visiting Rangers on April 24, 2009. In Game 4 on Wednesday, Wilson also dove into goal for a first-period save to help the Capitals even the series 2-2. (EXPRESS)

Reserve point guard Brandon Jennings sparked a fourthquarter comeback in the Game 2 victory.
Two photos in Thursday’s Express comparing the New England Patriots’ 2015 and 2017 visits to the White House after winning the Super Bowl may have been misleading. The photos showed a much larger group celebrating with then-President Obama in 2015, with both staircases to the South Portico filled with people. The image from Wednesday’s visit showed a smaller group behind President Trump. Although the caption accurately reported that more than two dozen players skipped this year’s event, the Patriots said late Wednesday, in response to a similar comparison by The New York Times, that the difference in crowd size had more to do with the fact that many team staffers who posed for the picture in 2015 were seated in front of the podium this year.

Jennings shows he’s still got touch NBA PLAYOFFS Brandon Jennings’ number was called in the final period of the Wizards’ 109-101 win over the Hawks in Game 2 of their firstround series Wednesday night at Verizon Center. Washington was down four points and relying on a short rotation with four players — including both starting forwards — in foul trouble. Just more than a minute into the fourth quarter, the backup point guard hit a step-back jumper to cut the deficit to two. About a minute later, he hit two consecutive jumpers, got a defensive stop and dished to a cutting
Redskins will host their first Thanksgiving game
Eli denies allegations of doctoring memorabilia
For the first time in franchise history, the Redskins will host a game on Thanksgiving. The Giants will come to FedEx Field on Nov. 23, a source said before Thursday night’s announcement. The game is slated to be the Thursday night contest, a game the NFL added in 2006 to complement its traditional doubleheader hosted by the Lions and the Cowboys. It will mark Washington’s 10th appearance on Thanksgiving, including last year’s 31-26 loss in Dallas. The Redskins haven’t played on Thanksgiving in consecutive seasons since 1973-74 against Detroit and Dallas. (TWP)
In a meeting with reporters Thursday, Eli Manning angrily denied that he provided fake gameused memorabilia to a collector. A 2014 lawsuit accuses the Giants’ quarterback of doctoring equipment to make it look as if it were used in games. Giants owner John Mara is among those named in the suit. Manning insisted he’s done nothing wrong and predicted he will be vindicated in the trial scheduled for September. A plaintiff filed a motion to compel testimony that included an email from Manning to an equipment manager asking for two helmets that could pass as game-used. (AP )
Jason Smith for the tying dunk. After posting five assists with no points and a -10 plus/minus rating in the Game 1 win, Jennings bounced back to score 10 points in Game 2. It was just the third time the eighth-year pro scored in double figures since joining Washington on March 1. Jennings, a dangerous scorer earlier in his career, shot 27.4 percent from the floor with the Wizards this season but hit 4 of 5 attempts Wednesday. “I been working on it every day. ... I was finally able to take some shots and shoot with confidence,” Jennings said. AVA WALLACE
51-10-13 The stat line in points, rebounds and assists for Thunder guard Russell Westbrook in a 115-111 loss Wednesday in Houston. It was the highest-scoring triple-double in NBA playoff history. “I don’t give a f--about the line,” Westbrook said. “We lost.” He shot 17-for-43 for the game. In the fourth quarter, he shot 4-of-18 and was 1-for-7 from 3. (TWP)

"choose sheets a nd duvet covers ma de from 100% cotto n woven in a high 3 , 00– 400 thread coun t." s we spend a third of our lives in bed, it’s so important to have a bedroom that fosters rest and relaxation. Many factors go in to creating a serene space, and bedding is perhaps the most essential. We’ve asked Crane & Canopy—our favorite source for aﬀordable, luxurious bedding—to share 5 reasons to invest in quality bedding for your home.
You’ll sleep better… It’s no secret—an investment in great bedding is an investment in better sleep! In fact, according to a National Sleep Foundation (NSF) survey, 9 out of 10 Americans believe quality bedding is a necessity for truly restful slumber. If you’ve been struggling to catch those Z’s, choosing luxury bedding can help. For the sweetest night’s rest, choose sheets and duvet covers made from 100% cotton, woven in a high 300–400 thread count.
55+ LUXURY SENIOR LIVING
…And you’ll feel better Great sleep is linked to a myriad of health beneﬁts, so better bedding can make you a healthier person. A good night’s rest not only helps you feel refreshed mentally, it gives your body the chance to rebuild damaged tissue, strengthen your immune system, and rest and relax tense muscles. It doesn’t end there, either! Sleeping well and enough is also linked to a speedy metabolism, clear skin, improved memory and concentration, and higher levels of creativity.
It’ll make your bedroom feel more like you As your bed is likely the focal point of your bedroom, designer bedding is the easiest way to introduce color, pattern, or texture to create a room you love. When investing in new bedding, consider the

tone you’d like to set for your space. If you’d like to create a tranquil space for rest, dreamy shades of pale blue, soft green, and blush pink work well. Hoping rather for a fun, inspiring space? Choose a duvet cover in bold patterns and bright shades of coral, white, or royal blue. Do you ﬁnd yourself asking, what is a duvet cover? This protective fabric layer, which covers your duvet, is easy to switch out and makes updating your bedroom décor simple.
You’ll be doing something for yourself Sometimes, the notion of treating yourself is enough reason to invest. Filling your bedroom with items that help to create a better life, both physically and aesthetically, is a way of caring for yourself and your home. When you choose quality bedding, you cultivate the idea that your
space, and the time you spend there, is important. So grab a warm cup of tea and snuggle up; you’re worth it!
Your bedding will look and feel better, longer As with any fabric product, it’s incredibly frustrating to bring home bedding you love, only to have it lose softness or fall apart after a few washes. Choosing bedding made of higher quality materials, however, ensures long-lasting durability and aesthetic appeal. For bedding that will look and feel luxurious for many sleeps to come, choose pieces made from premium long or extra-long staple cotton. Your bed will thank you! ■ By Guest Blogger for Apartment Showcase Photo: Shri Radha Florence via Flickr Creative Commons

3 GOOD QUESTIONS
James Gray Director, ‘The Lost City of Z’
Brie Larson wields a gun — and a deadly eye roll — in “Free Fire.”
KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY | THE REELIST
‘Fire’ power: One bad film does not doom a director I can’t say I was looking forward to seeing “Free Fire.” On the surface, it had enough going for it — I like the main cast, specifically Brie Larson and Armie Hammer. It’s a comedy, and it’s short, which are two things I like. What worried me actually wasn’t a what — it was a who. I hated “High-Rise,” “Free Fire” director Ben Wheatley’s last film, to the point where the fact that he had directed two really good episodes of one of my favorite TV shows, “Doctor Who,” was no comfort. The bloviating, selfabsorbed “High-Rise” made
me think Wheatley might not have what it takes to work on the big screen. After watching “Free Fire,” I’m ready to admit I was wrong. The film has a very simple setup: Various underworld people of various levels of intelligence (among them Larson, Hammer and Cillian Murphy) gather in a warehouse for a gun deal. The gun deal goes wrong. Everyone begins shooting at each other. Also, it’s very funny. Here’s the thing I didn’t like about “High-Rise,” which was a big, stinking pile of metaphor starring Tom Hiddleston: The story was secondary, sacrificed on the altar of style.
It was a glossy, slick film — so slick that it left nothing for its audience to grab onto or be invested in. In “Free Fire,” which Wheatley co-wrote, the director’s style serves the story. The frenetic shootout scenes — which felt like a more chill version of 1998’s “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” — were nicely balanced with scenes where characters and audiences both could take a breath, reload and maybe make a few quips. The 1970s setting not only gives the film a visual flair (do they make facial hair like they used to? No, they do not) but makes narrative sense; one cellphone and the whole plot falls
‘Free Fire’ (R, 90 min.) DIRECTOR: Ben Wheatley STARS: Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy IN A NUTSHELL: In this comedic action film set in 1970s Boston, criminals meet up for a gun deal that soon devolves into a shootout.
Judge halts today’s release of Prince’s new EP, “Deliverance,” after lawsuit from artist’s estate
apart. The minor characters are well-drawn. The major ones are vividly memorable, particularly Hammer’s chic, pot-smoking gun dealer and Larson as the only girl in the clubhouse (if there were an Oscar for outstanding performance of an eye roll, she’d be a shoo-in). What I liked best about “Free Fire,” though, is that it’s a reminder of a simple fact: Directors can get better. It’s easy to assume that good directors emerge fully formed from the head of Orson Welles, but helming a movie is just like any other job: Work, time and training almost inevitably lead to improvement. I don’t know what Wheatley did in the time between “High-Rise” and “Free Fire,” but whatever it was, it strengthened his weaknesses and honed his strengths. I walked into “Free Fire” skeptical because of Wheatley. Now, I can’t wait to see what he does next. For more movie musings, follow Kristen on Twitter: @kpagekirby.
In “The Lost City of Z,” writer-director James Gray tells the story of Percy Fawcett, a real-life explorer who vanished in the Amazon in 1925 while trying to prove the existence of a lost advanced civilization. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
Why does the film include a section on World War I? I thought it was very important to introduce this idea of mechanized death, and that this [city] is a product of a so-called “civilized” society. So the city’s existence would contradict the idea that Europeans were the most advanced society? [Fawcett] was a total threat to the entire belief system. There had probably been a very elaborate, rich culture in South America … that the Spanish and the Portuguese had pretty much destroyed. How do you write a true story when you don’t actually know the ending? I don’t think there’s any question about what happened. There was a group [of indigenous people]. He ran into them. That was it. The whole idea that they’re savages, that they kill white people — there’s a reason.

Anything but ‘Unforgettable’ FILM REVIEW Would anyone who works for an online business really not have a Facebook account? The toxicrelationship thriller “Unforgettable” hopes viewers won’t notice its pesky plot holes, but despite a mostly uninspired cast, this predictable film eventually builds a campy momentum. We meet a scarred, shaken Julia (Rosario Dawson) in classic noir style, as police interrogate her about a murder she claims she didn’t commit. Well, how does she explain all those Facebook messages she exchanged with the victim, her abusive ex-boyfriend? The plot unfolds six months earlier, when Julia is leaving a job at an online storytelling company to move to San Francisco with her fiance, David (Geoff Stults), and his daughter, Lily (Isabella Rice). Unfortunately, David’s ex-wife, Tessa (Katherine Heigl), doesn’t hide her contempt for her replacement, belittling her at every opportunity. When Tessa learns that her rival isn’t on Facebook (there are such people, but in this context it doesn’t make sense), she creates an account for her and contacts Julia’s ex-boyfriend, setting in motion a lurid and ridiculous social media melodrama. The film ramps up the horror of domestic tensions between and
We already forgot what’s happening in this scene between Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl.
War is love’s backdrop in ‘The Promise’
WARNER BROS. PICTURES
Unconvincing acting and plot holes mar this Lifetime-style thriller
‘Unforgettable’ (R, 100 min.) DIRECTOR: Denise Di Novi STARS: Katherine Heigl, Geoff Stults, Rosario Dawson, Cheryl Ladd IN A NUTSHELL: A woman struggling to cope with the end of her marriage sets out to ruin the life of her ex-husband’s new wife.
within families. Tessa, it turns out, has never been able to live up to the expectations of her upperclass milieu or of her demanding mother (Cheryl Ladd). Veteran
producer Denise Di Novi, for her first feature as a director, observes two women buckling under enormous pressure. It’s too bad that Heigl isn’t up to the demands of her role. While she exudes physical strength, her doe eyes lack the severity to make something truly threatening out of the kind of role that screen legend Joan Crawford could have performed in her sleep. The film’s men are even less distinct. Stults is barely distinguishable from Julia’s mildly sneering ex (Simon Kassianides).
Perhaps surprisingly, television veteran Ladd injects a bit of much-needed life into the film. But as Tessa’s pathological machinations descend into nearly slapstick violence, you wish for more vivid performances to fill out this live-action Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote battle. “Unforgettable” borrows elements from film noir, Lifetime movies and slasher flicks, and updates them for the internet age. But this forgettable thriller will simply make you remember other, better films. PAT PADUA (THE WASHINGTON POST)
“I really regret not trusting her more easily. … I’m so scared that I treated her with internalized misogyny.” ANNE HATHAWAY, in an interview on “Popcorn With Peter Travers,” sharing that she might have had an
unintentional gender bias when working with director Lone Scherfig on her 2011 film “One Day”
Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon to star in HBO’s “Fahrenheit 451” film
FILM REVIEW In “The Promise,” intense hidden emotions are suddenly unleashed, threatening plans, vows and even lives. Oh, also, there’s a war. Financed by ArmenianAmericans, “The Promise” highlights what it presents as the murder of 1.5 million Armenians by the Turkish government in World War I. (The government of Turkey has refused to acknowledge the violence as genocide.) But all the horrors in this film are shown mostly as the backdrop to a love triangle. When the tale begins, it’s 1914 and Michael (Oscar Isaac), a pharmacist, accepts an arranged engagement to a woman he doesn’t know so he can use her dowry for tuition to go to medical school. Arriving at the big-city home of his wealthy uncle, Michael is immediately smitten with his young nieces’ dance teacher, Ana (Charlotte Le Bon). Both Michael and Ana are Armenian. But Ana already has a boyfriend: American journalist Chris (Christian Bale). Meanwhile, amid all the swooning, the film does depict individual executions and mass slaughters, but it dials back the carnage to PG-13. It also has some touching scenes, including a partly happy ending, but such moments are dramatically limp. Attempting to make an atrocity palatable to a mainstream audience, “The Promise” delivers the history, but undercuts its impact. MARK JENKINS (TWP)

The week’s best movie previews
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’
EXPECTED RELEASE: June 28
EXPECTED RELEASE: Sept. 29
SUMMARY: Director Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead”) made a splash at South by Southwest with his latest film, in which Ansel Elgort plays Baby (his real name), a getaway driver in the vein of Ryan Gosling in “Drive.” He says he wants to do one more job and then go straight — but we know how that works in the movies, don’t we? KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
SUMMARY: Now that teaser trailer basically means actual trailer, this 15-second glimpse at the sequel to 2014’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” is a real tease. Images flash by, including a cheeseburger, a fluffy, light brown dog and a half-naked woman. What’s the movie about? No idea! But there’s a fluffy dog! K.P.K.

“I have unicorn crap all in my hair, on my nose. I have never been so stressed out in my entire life. ... If you love us, as baristas, DON’T ORDER IT.”
TWO TALKS ON CHRISTIAN HEALING By Heloisa Rivas, Christian Science Healer, Teacher and Speaker
BRADEN BURSON, a 19-year-old Colorado barista, in his viral video rant about
the wildly popular Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino. Burson posted the video after a hectic shift, begging viewers not to order the new drink because the mania is making baristas’ lives “insane.” He has since taken the video down from his Twitter. Luckily for Burson, the drink is available only through Sunday.

ERIC SCHNEIDERMAN, New York attorney general, tweeting about an investigation that was so similar to a “Seinfeld” plotline that it was dubbed “Operation Vandelay Industries,” after George Costanza’s fake company. A man has been indicted for pretending to be a licensed architect, which Costanza often lied about on the show. Another Seinfeld overlap: The indicted man’s last name is Newman.

PAR SCORE 155-165, BEST SCORE 220
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll want to explore all the choices available to you, but stop short of deciding just yet. Others have opinions worth considering. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Someone is likely to arrive to give you a boost when you most need it, but that doesn’t mean that he or she will be with you indefinitely. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A new kind of mood will descend upon you, making things tense for those who think they have you all figured out. You’re full of surprises. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Are your emotions getting the better of you? Perhaps you have let yourself get too involved in something too soon.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re
waiting until you are at the halfway point to look back and assess your progress. You’ll get there before the day is out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’ll have only a short amount of time to do what is most important. When the time is up, the opportunity will expire forever. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A message from a loved one may prove disconcerting, but only for a short time. You’ll figure out the meaning very quickly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A key issue continues to plague you. Even while those around you do their best to ignore it, you can’t; it must be dealt with.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) A
loved one unveils his or her heart, and still you are left with the strange feeling that something has not been said. Ask the question. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You
are getting more and more involved in something that may take control of you if you are not careful. Guard your autonomy.

You may be considering making a sacrifice that you cannot afford to make. Think twice before taking any action.

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

Ed Sheeran told a crowd at a concert this week that he has at least one misspelled tattoo courtesy of Saoirse Ronan. The actress stars in the forthcoming video for his song “Galway Girl,” and Sheeran explained at the concert that he wanted her to tattoo the song title on his arm in her handwriting. “It actually says Galway Grill,” Sheeran said, as revealed in video of the show shared on Twitter. “Like full on, she really took the piss out of me with this one.” He said he’s not mad about the typo. “I’m actually kind of proud of her,” he said. “It’s the kind of thing that I would do.” (EXPRESS)
