‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Starring: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton

Directed by: Jon Watts

Rated: PG-13

 

With tongue firmly planted in cheek, Marvel Studios has revamped “Spider-Man” for the third time. Tobey Maguire didn’t quite get it done and Andrew Garfield was just too morose to capture the character.

Babies, babies, and more babies! This June saw a massive baby boom throughout the Houston Zoo, with the biggest baby yet to come when later this summer, the zoo will welcome a 250-300-pound Asian elephant calf.

A California sea lion pup was born to first-time mother, Cali, on June 26 after a three-hour labor. The pup and Cali began to bond immediately, and nursing was spotted within hours. The sex of the pup has not yet been determined, and the mother and pup will spend a while behind the scenes strengthening their bond before they are ready to make their first public appearance.
