The Cricket’s Daily 3: Actress ‘shattered’ by anti-Islam film

Here’s what’s happening today in pop culture:

• When an actress worked on a sci-fi movie called "Desert Warrior," she had no idea her work would be dubbed over and turned into an anti-Islam film that has sparked violent protests across the Muslim world. The actress, Anna Gurji, is now scared and "shattered," and speaks out in a letter to author Neil Gaiman. [Neil Gaiman’s Journal; h/t The Huffington Post]

• It was another slow box-office weekend, with "Resident Evil: Retribution" topping the list with $21.1 million. (By the way, the conservative-tilted "Last Ounce of Courage" made $1.7 million, ranking a lowly 15th place.) [Box Office Mojo]
