— It’s been 14 years since the Parr family was on the big screen as “The Incredibles,” and it seems like fans have been waiting for the sequel as “Incredibles 2” crushed box office records, taking in an estimated $180 million in its opening domestic weekend, CNN reported.
But the film is now coming with a warning for those who suffer from epilepsy or other conditions, USAToday reported.
There is a segment of the movie that shows bright flashing lights used by the villain Screenslaver, USAToday reported.
There were warnings on social media from theater goers after last week’s premiere of “Incredibles 2” alerting fans with epilepsy, migraines or chronic illness that the mind control scenes could trigger seizures.
HEALTH ALERT I haven’t seen this mentioned in a lot of places, but the new Incredibles 2 movie (#incredibles2) is filled with tons of strobe/flashing lights that can cause issues for people with epilepsy, migraines, and chronic illness.

The Epilepsy Foundation also issued a warning.
On Friday, Walt Disney Pictures took it a step further, requesting that theaters showing the film warn viewers about the scene, USAToday reported.
A theater supervisor for a Los Angeles AMC theater location told USAToday he has never had an alert like that before from a studio.

— Actress Reese Witherspoon confirmed Thursday morning that the “Legally Blonde” franchise is getting a third film.
Rumors swirled last week that Witherspoon was in talks to reprise her starring role as sorority girl-turned-attorney Elle Woods for “Legally Blonde 3.”
“It’s true,” she said Thursday morning in a tweet.
The announcement came with a short video of Witherspoon wearing a sparkly pink bikini and floating in a pool. “Legally Blonde” fans might recognize the bikini from the first film in the franchise.

— If the trailer is any indication, you are going to look mighty fine on film, Dayton.
Shots filmed in Dayton — including one showing Robert Redford and Danny Glover on top of the Talbott Tower —can be seen in the newly released trailer for the “Old Man and The Gun.”
Lisa Powell, a photographer for this news organization, took a photo of the actors on the building last year (see image below).
Fox Searchlight is set to release the film also starring Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek, on Oct. 5.
The movie based on bank robber and escape artist Forrest “Woody” Tucker’s real life was filmed here last spring.
Redford plays Tucker in the film directed and written by David Lowery.
The former Liberty Savings Bank sections of Liberty Tower — an art deco high-rise at 120 W. Second St. — was also used for the film.
Parts of downtown Hamilton were also used.
A gas station and the Midway Theater in Bethel (southeast of Cincinnati) were also used in the movie.
The Dayton skyline and Liberty Tower are among the scenes seen in the trailer.
The movie was filmed in Cincinnati and parts of Dayton and Hamilton last year.
The film is based on the 2003 New Yorker article “The Old Man and the Gun” by Dan Grann.
