´Don´t Breathe´ scares off box office competition

LOS ANGELES: Suspense thriller "Don´t Breathe" stole the North American box office thunder in its opening weekend, knocking off "Suicide Squad" from three weeks at the top, industry estimates showed Sunday.

"Don´t Breathe" -- a horror twist on home invasion -- features a trio of thieves breaking into the house of a supposedly helpless wealthy blind man. The top moneymaker over the weekend made $26.4 million.

"Suicide Squad" slipped to number two at $12.2 million. The film, starring Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie as criminals hired to carry out secret missions, has raked in $283 million in four weeks, despite poor reviews.

"Kubo and the Two Strings" traded places with "Sausage Party" for third place, with $7.8 million in its second week.
The 3-D stop motion adventure fantasy is about a one-eyed boy on a quest in ancient Japan who must battle the gods with a magical instrument.

The raunchy animated comedy "Sausage Party," with Seth Rogan as the leading voice, made $7.53 million.

Moviegoers spent $7.46 million on action sequel "Mechanic: Resurrection," putting it in fifth place on its opening weekend.
The film sees Jason Statham reprising his hitman role from the 2011 film "The Mechanic," loosely based on the 1972 film of the same name, starring Charles Bronson.
Rounding out the top ten films of the weekend are:


-- "Pete´s Dragon" ($7.4 million)
-- "War Dogs" ($7 million)
-- "Bad Moms" ($5.6 million)
-- "Jason Bourne" ($5.1 million)
-- "Ben-Hur" ($4.6 million)

Clinton aide Abedin leaves husband after new ´sexting´ revelations

NEW YORK: Huma Abedin, a close aide to presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, announced in the midst of the campaign Monday that she was separating from husband Anthony Weiner following new revelations that he "sexted" another woman.

The New York Post published photographs and messages that the former congressman exchanged with a woman showing him shirtless with his four-year-old son asleep by his side.

"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Abedin, 40, said in a statement.

"Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy," she said.

Weiner was forced to resign his seat in Congress in 2011 after a similar sexting scandal in which he admitted to exchanging sexually explicit pictures and messages with at least six women.

Two years later, he ran for mayor of New York but the bid was derailed by allegations that he continued sexting under the name "Carlos Danger."

Weiner then apologized to voters with Abedin at his side. A documentary released in May, "Weiner," chronicled that campaign and the painful burden shouldered by Abedin, who worked on Clinton´s first presidential campaign in 2008 and followed her boss to the State Department.

The latest revelations come in the midst of Clinton´s duel with Donald Trump for the White House, and the Republican presidential candidate wasted no time seizing on the announcement to attack his rival.

While calling Abedin´s move "a very wise decision," he questioned Clinton´s judgment "in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information."

"Who knows what he learned and who he told? It´s just another example of Hillary Clinton´s bad judgment," Trump said in a statement.

The Post said Weiner shot the latest picture in the early hours of July 31, 2015 while messaging with a 40-something divorcee -- described as a Trump supporter -- on the West Coast.

"Someone just climbed into my bed," Weiner wrote. "Really?" the woman responded. At that point, according to the Post, Weiner hit the send button.

"You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??" the woman wrote, the Post said.
The newspaper said the picture was one of more than a dozen selfies, most of them showing Weiner posing shirtless, that the 51-year-old sent to the woman.

Rooney remains England captain

United Kingdom: Wayne Rooney will remain England captain national team coach Sam Allardyce confirmed on Monday.

The 30-year-old -- who was criticised over his performances when he skippered England at the Euro 2016 finals -- should lead out England for the first time under Allardyce in Sunday´s match against Slovakia.

"Wayne has been an excellent captain for England and the manner in which he has fulfilled the role made it an easy decision for me to ask him to continue," Allardyce told TheFA.com.

"Wayne´s record speaks for itself. He is the most senior member of the squad and he is hugely respected by his peers.
"All of these factors point towards him being the right choice to lead the team."
