Who Dies in 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix'?
The X-Men are now beloved celebrities who go on high-profile rescue missions, and Xavier has a direct line to the US president. All of the X-Men movies have opened with at least $53 million, so we see Dark Phoenix may not even hit that number.

That's a tough hurdle for Australia but once they've played a couple of decent teams, they will have a better idea of where they are at with regards to the rest of the tournament.

Coulter-Nile insists he is not bothered by the competition for spots. Australia, who had easily beaten Afghanistan in their first match, lost four quick wickets for just 38 runs in the eighth over with Aaron Finch (6), David Warner (3), Usman Khawaja (13) and Glenn Maxwell (0) falling cheaply.

Lloyd, who captained the West Indies to victory at the 1975 and 1979 tournaments, saw the side impress with a rout of Pakistan in their opening match, but then let Australia off the hook as the holders beat them by 15 runs.

Fielding at deep backward square, Cottrell hared around the boundary as Smith's sweetly hit shot looked headed for six runs. Conscious that his momentum would carry him over, Cottrell threw the ball into the air and returned to the playing area to take the catch.

While the Australians are naturally more experienced facing pace and bounce in their home conditions, coach Justin Langer pointed out that much of their World Cup preparation was focussed on facing spin in subcontinent settings, and later in the UAE.

Rafael Nadal sweeps Roger Federer, reaches French Open final
For the tournament and for Federer , the fact that Federer is back on clay and competitive again, it's something important. Nadal has been equally dominant and obliterated Kei Nishikori with an awesome show of force in the quarter-finals.
