The Week in News: April 28th - May 4thby

It’s been another long week in news and – as always – we’re here to help you catch up with some of the most interesting stories which have come to light in recent days. While some weeks are slower than others, you can always guarantee that there are a few moments in the press that really bear repeating! As spring continues to – well – spring forward, here’s a digest of some of the most interesting news from this past week.

Infinity War is Set to Breach $1 Billion in Record Time
According to various sources, the box office money being accrued by the latest Marvel Studios’ Avengers movie – Infinity War – looks set to blow everything clean out of the water. At the time of writing, it is already the second-highest grossing movie in the US this year thus far, having already earned half of the gross that the phenomenally-performing Black Panther – also from Marvel – has so far built up. For reference – Infinity War, at the time of writing, has only been on general release for just over a week. Sources say it’s set to hit $1 billion at the box office faster than any other movie in history.

Trump’s Doctor: I Never Wrote His Health Letter
The infamous letter in which US President Donald Trump is reportedly claimed to be in ‘astonishingly excellent’ condition and health – dating back to 2015 – has been revealed to have been dictated completely by Trump himself, according to the doctor who supposedly wrote the missive, Harold Bornstein. Bornstein has also claimed that bodyguards working for Trump allegedly raided his office for his medical records ahead of his Presidency.

Netflix Cancels Kimmy Schmidt
Arguably one of Netflix’s breakout comedy hits, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, co-created by Tina Fey, will reportedly end after a fourth season and a movie. It’s a daring move from the network as it announces culling 18 further shows from its catalogue in recent weeks, including Seven Seconds and Everything Sucks – both of which failed to land second runs.

Facebook Announces Dating Platform
Are Facebook late to the game or are they hitting on a perfect formula? An announcement this week saw Facebook – still recovering after beleaguering scandals involving data sharing with the likes of Cambridge Analytica – advise that they will be testing a dating platform and algorithm with certain Android users later this year.
