Entertainment News Pop: San Sebastian Film Festival Boosts Local Economy by $24 Million, Study Says

The San Sebastian Film Festival, running September 20-28 in the Basque seaside city, estimates that its 226 films screened for a total audience of 150,000 cinema-goers brings in around $23.7 million (18.2 million euros) for the local economy. Character actor Domenick Lombardozzi has been cast in a supporting role in the movie God?s Pocket, which is the feature directing debut of John Slattery, who is also a producer on the project. The movie, which marks the feature directorial debut of the "Mad Men" actor, also stars Christina Hendricks, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins and John Turturro. According to studio estimates, the mighty minions of "Despicable Me 2" fought off a challenge from Adam Sandler's new comedy sequel "Grown Ups 2" to top the weekend movie charts in the United States and Canada. "Despicable Me 2," the animated hit featuring the crowd-pleasing yellow minions, rung up $44.8 million in ticket sales in its second week in release to hold on to the top spot, despite a strong showing from "Grown Ups 2," which took in $42.5 million.
