Driver’s ‘Logan Lucky’ lowdown
Tatum, Driver on ‘unfortunate’ box office opening
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Hitman's Bodyguard" stole the weekend from the heist pic "Logan Lucky." Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, "The Hitman's Bodyguard" opened to $21.4 million, easily topping the weekend which continued the downward spiral of the summer movie season compared to last year.
NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Driver prefers not to see the films and TV shows he's in, a policy that he grants he's taken a little far.
"I haven't seen 'Lincoln' and I have, like, the smallest part in 'Lincoln,' Driver says, chuckling. "It's not called 'Samuel Beckwith the Telegraph Operator,' it's called ... 'Lincoln.' I should watch it."
Even though he stars in two of the better films of the year, Jim Jarmusch's "Paterson" and Martin Scorsese's "Silence," Driver won't see either. It's too excruciating.
