The world premiere of 'The Whale' happened Sunday night at the Venice Film Festival and when the credits rolled Brendan Fraser was overcome with emotion. Years out of the Hollywood spotlight, Fraser returns to the big screen playing a 600-pound gay man confined to a wheelchair. He sobbed throughout the six-minute standing ovation, which will likely put him at the forefront of this year’s best actor Oscars race.

Plus, The Weeknd abruptly canceled his concert Saturday mid-performance, Jane Fonda diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Taylor Hawkins' 16-year-old son took the stage at Wembley Stadium for his tribute concert, and ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ is now the 5th highest grossing movie ever in North America.
