Police in the province of Limburg say that authorities are still looking for the white van, hours after Monday's pre-dawn crash near a camping site close to the famous Pinkpop festival in the southeastern municipality of Landgraaf. The three-day concert is traditionally attended by tens of thousands of music fans and ended late Sunday with a performance by Bruno Mars.

  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has triumphed over late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel in their much-hyped charity basketball game that Kimmel dubbed the Blobfish Basketball Classic. With each basket worth a single point, Cruz topped Kimmel 11-9 in a two-hour one-on-one match they agreed to abbreviate Saturday at Texas Southern University after neither appeared capable of reaching 15 points and winning by two. The Houston Chronicle described the matchup as 'a slow-motion car-crash of half-court basketball.' Speaking for both men, Kimmel said: 'We apologize to the game of basketball.' The game was born of a joke from Kimmel, who'd said the Republican senator resembled the ocean bottom-dwelling blobfish. Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game. Two Houston charities are the beneficiaries. Game highlight videos are planned for Kimmel's ABC program Monday night.
  • Comedian Seth MacFarlane tweeted that comments made by Fox News host Tucker Carlson made him “embarrassed” to work for the network, The Hill reported Sunday. >> Read more trending news MacFarlane’s science fiction comedy-drama series “The Orville,” is broadcast on Fox. He also created the long-running “Family Guy” animated show that is aired by the network. On Saturday, MacFarlane took issue with Carlson’s comments that urged viewers not to trust news reports from “big stations.” “If you're looking to understand what's actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they're telling you on the big news stations,” Carlson said in his Friday night telecast. MacFarlane was responding to CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter, who called Carlson’s comments “sad” on Twitter. “In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News,” MacFarlane tweeted. “It’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.”
  • The combined powers of superheroes, the Pixar brand and a draught of family-friendly films helped 'Incredibles 2' become the best animated opening of all time, the biggest PG-rated launch ever and the 8th highest film launch overall. Disney estimated Sunday that the film earned $180 million in its first weekend in North American theaters — far surpassing industry analysts' loftiest expectations which had the film pegged for a $120 to $140 million debut. The previous animation record-holder was another Pixar sequel, 'Finding Dory,' which had a $135 million launch in 2016. It was Disney's live-action 'Beauty and the Beast' that held the record for a PG debut with $174.8 million in 2017. 'You don't get to this level of opening without appealing to everyone whether you're a fan of animation, superheroes or just out to have a good time and want to see a good movie,' said Cathleen Taff, the head of distribution for Walt Disney Studios. 'We had a film that had something for all ages.' According to Disney, adults made up 31 percent of the audience, families accounted for 57 percent and teens 11 percent. 'Incredibles 2' comes 14 years after 'The Incredibles,' which at the time boasted one of the biggest animated openings ever, and picks up right where the first film left off with the superhero family. Brad Bird returned to write and direct the sequel, which has been overwhelmingly well-received by both critics and audiences. 'This is one of the biggest over-performances I've ever seen,' said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. 'To over-perform by $40 million means everyone underestimated the power of animation to draw huge audiences.' 'Incredibles 2' is also the second biggest ever June debut, behind only 'Jurassic World' ($208.8 million), which has its own sequel preparing to take a bite out of the box office when its opens in North America next weekend. It knocked 'Ocean's 8' to a distant second in its second weekend in theaters with $19.6 million. 'Ocean's 8' still managed to outdo the non-'Incredibles' newcomers, like the R-rated comedy 'Tag,' also a Warner Bros. release, which opened in third place with $14.6 million. 'Solo: A Star Wars Story,' fell to fourth place with $9.1 million and 'Deadpool 2' rounded out the top five with an additional $8.8 million. Sony's 'Superfly' remake landed in seventh place in its first weekend with $6.3 million, and Vertical Entertainment's 'Gotti,' starring John Travolta, opened outside of the top 10. Playing in 503 locations, the long-delayed film which boasts a 0 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, took in $1.7 million. After a slow early June, the box office overall is now running around 6 percent ahead of where it was last year and will likely continue that growth next weekend when 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' launches stateside. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1.'Incredibles 2,' $180 million ($51.5 million international). 2.'Ocean's 8,' $19.6 million ($19.3 million international). 3.'Tag,' $14.6 million ($1.4 million international). 4.'Solo: A Star Wars Story,' $9.1 million ($5.2 million international). 5.'Deadpool 2,' $8.8 million ($9.8 million international). 6.'Hereditary,' $7 million ($5.7 million international). 7.'Superfly,' $6.3 million. 8.'Avengers: Infinity War,' $5.3 million ($3.1 million international). 9.'Adrift,' $2.1 million ($453,000 international). 10.'Book Club,' $1.9 million ($730,000 international). ___ Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada), according to comScore: 1.
