Grand Theft Auto V will be out in store on September 17, 2013. The latest installment of the thug themed shoot-em-up could be Take Two Interactive's biggest hit yet.
In anticipation of the release of Grand Theft Auto V, Take-Two Interactive shares are up to $19 from $10 this year. History says shareholders should take the cash and run before hot anticipation of a profit boost turns to the realization that next year's results won't measure up. But this time around, there's reason to believe Take-Two (ticker: TTWO) will break out of a dozen-year cycle of jumps and spills. Shares could gain another 30% over the next year.

Check out this cool review of RCMania on Snake Bite Monster Truck. I love driving this monster over stones, puddle, and other stuff. I bought mine on Toys R Us. It's pretty big 23" long with tires that are almost 9" in diameter.

Walt Disney Co said on Tuesday that they expect to lose about $190 million on their very expensive movie flop "The Lone Ranger."
"The Lone Ranger" stars Johnny Depp. The loss will be recorded for the quarter that ends in September. Disney shares dropped 1.9 percent in after-hours trading to $65.79 from a $67.05 close on the New York Stock Exchange.
The movie opened July 3 with a dissappointing $29 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales over its first weekend.
"There has been a lot said, I know, about the risk of basically high cost, tent pole films," Disney CEO Bob Iger said, "and we certainly can attest to that given what happened with Lone Ranger."
"We still think the tentpole strategy is a good strategy," he said. "That one way to rise above the din and the competition is with a big film, not just big budget, but big story, big cast, big marketing behind it."
