Miss Peregrine Lands No. 1 Spot at Box Office
Tim Burton’s latest big-budget epic, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, claimed the weekend’s top box-office spot, netting an estimated $28.5 million between Friday and Sunday. Burton’s adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel easily topped Peter Berg’s Deepwater Horizon, starring Mark Wahlberg and Kate Hudson, which pulled in an estimated $20.6 million during its opening weekend. Miss Peregrine’s debut gross lands just shy of Burton’s 2012 fantasy flick, Dark Shadows, which premiered at $29.7 million.

The thieves made off with a full jewelry box estimated to be worth $5.6 million and a ring valued at $4.5 million. Upon learning of the robbery, Kanye West, who was performing at New York’s Meadows Music and Arts Festival, announced “a family emergency” had occurred, walked offstage and ended his show.

Reykjavik Turns Off City Lights to Enhance View of Northern Lights
To enhance visibility of the region’s Northern Lights phenomenon, Reykjavik officials switched off the city’s street lights until midnight on Sunday. The efforts seems to have been a success—the pink glow seen in years past, caused by light pollution from the city, has been absent from most photos posted to Instagram. Known scientifically as Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights occur as the result of electrons colliding in the outer reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere. As these collisions take place, molecules are driven into higher energy states, and as they relax back down, energy is released, resulting in the phenomenon’s famous green glow.
