The Cricket's Daily 3: Trust him, he's The (new) Doctor

Here's what's being talked about over the weekend in pop culture:

• Scottish actor Peter Capaldi has been tapped to portray the 12 th Doctor on the long-running British time-travel series "Doctor Who." Capaldi's credits include "Local Hero," "In the Loop" and "World War Z" – and he's been a guest star on "Doctor Who" and its spinoff "Torchwood." [AP, via The Salt Lake Tribune]

• The action buddy-cop movie "2 Guns" topped the box-office charts this weekend, with an estimated $27.4 million. "The Wolverine," in its second week, came in second – while the other new title, "The Smurfs 2," had a less-than-smurfy third-place showing. [Box Office Mojo]

• The idea to put Syfy's "Sharknado" in 200 theaters (none of them in Utah) for Friday midnight showings didn't go so well. [The Hollywood Reporter]
