Paul McCartney Redefines ‘Carpool Karaoke’ With James Corden In Liverpool

He was 14 and it was called “I Lost My Little Girl”:

‘Sicario: Day Of The Soldado’ Review: Benicio Del Toro & Josh Brolin Power Thrilling And Timely Sequel
It was unexpected, but believe me when I tell you Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2015 Sicario, is simply the most intelligent and exciting action thriller of the summer. Going in I thought perhaps this would be kind of like They Call Me Mister Tibbs was to In the Heat of the Night — a serviceable but hardly worthy follow-up — but this film absolutely stands on its own, the promise of director Denis Villeneuve’s original more than met… Read
