The Rundown

Entertainment Express: Man of Steel, Steven Spielberg + George Lucas, Laura Linney, The Replacements, Cher

Man of Steel
* Man of Steel opens in the US this weekend, after already taking the Asia box office by storm, and giving me another reason to stick a picture of Henry Cavill up here. Rolling Stone has a great piece on Hans Zimmer’s creative process in making the film’s score, while a more psychological take on superheroes is explored here

* George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, the granddaddies of modern movie-making, ihave given their predictions on the future of film, and things don’t look good. The duo, speaking at the University of Southern California, warn of movie industry ‘implosion’ and $50 tickets, leading many to ask, is this the end of Hollywood as we know it?

* Laura Linney was among the honorees at the 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night. As she received the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film, the 3-time Oscar nominee and 3-time Emmy winner used her acceptance speech to address gender inequality in the film business, calling it “unhealthy.” Good on her.

* It’s a good year for reunions and come-backs, it seems. Pioneering alternative rock outfit The Replacements have announced that 22 years after breaking up, they’ll be coming together for at least 3 shows. Also, Cher will be releasing her newest album (the first since 2001’s Living Proof) in September, with the very inventive title of Women’s World. She’ll debut a song off it on The Voice next Tuesday.

PS Happy to hear Mumford & Sons’ bassist Ted Duane has been discharged from hospital, following a successful operation to remove a blood clot from his brain.

  2. The White House is bigger than you think.

  3. An electrical outlet, also known as an electrical receptacle (wall socket) provides a place in a wiring system where current can be taken to run electrical devices. Here, we will review electrical work costs, as well as professional electrician prices for labor. When re-wiring the kitchen, consider the opportunity for new appliances. Microwave ovens, deep freezers, trash compactors or disposals, slow cookers, exhaust fans or other such items place extra demands on your electrical system, and each should be assigned its own receptacle.

Overall, kitchen remodels cost $100 to $250 per square foot, with the average homeowner spending $150 per square foot.

A mid-range kitchen costs about $11,000 to $28,000. A luxury kitchen costs more than $29,000, with an average of $45,000. In most cases, you can count on your updated kitchen to boost the value of your home. It’s no shock that buyers are willing to pay more for high-end finishes and thoughtful upgrades. Interior painting costs more for a kitchen than painting a regular room because of the need to cover cabinets, remove appliances, and remove outlet covers. The walls will probably need to be primed and then painted with a semi-gloss to make the paint last well in such a high-traffic area. Expect painting costs to be around $800 to $1,500 depending on how much wall space is visible. Installing cabinets and their hardware makes up the lion’s share of expenses at 29 percent. The average cost of cabinetry and hardware hovers around $6,670, and depends on the actual stock, and refacing and refinishing costs.

A fresh kitchen design not only updates your home and increases resale value, it can make your kitchen a more functional, compelling epicenter of your home. But one of the first questions homeowners will consider when planning a kitchen remodel will be price; what they can expect to pay, and more importantly, what they can afford. Electricians charge approximately $50 to $100 an hour for labor, and if the electrical work is handled as part of the demolition process of the existing kitchen, it’s not a huge job. If the remodel is already well underway when the homeowner realizes that the electrical service needs to be upgraded to accommodate the new, larger refrigerator, or that wires need to be moved, outlets need to be added or upgraded, and permits need to be acquired, the costs to tear out finished work to replace wiring and added expense of rush jobs can be unexpectedly significant. Ideally, hire an electrician at the beginning of the process to advise and coordinate with the contractor from the start.
