John and Alicia Nash die in New Jersey traffic accident

Very sad news this morning. John and Alicia Nash, portrayed in the film A Beautiful Mind by Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, died yesterday in a traffic accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. More at NewJersey.com. Our hearts go out to their family.

John was in the news again this March when he was awarded the Abel Prize, sometimes called the Nobel of Mathematics, for devising new methods for solving partial differential equations. John and Alicia attended an informal event hosted by Princeton in his honor where colleagues celebrated his life’s work. The prize was considered the crowning achievement of his career. Princeton’s press office quoted Nash,”The Abel Prize is top-level among mathematics prizes. There’s really nothing better.”

You can read about the Able Prize and Nash’s work it in the journal Nature.

Rather a good picture he took for the show’s photo booth don’t you think?

Russell Crowe’s Australian travel recommends

From Russell at twitter: #TheWaterDiviner US release expands this week to 385 screens (65 @IMAX ) in total across 105 markets. Is it in your town now? Go see it.

Side note – I’ve seen The Water Diviner twice (so far) and while I would love it anywhere I have to say GO SEE IT IN IMAX if you can, so worth the trip. – Tamara

Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner has A- Cinemascore

IndieWire on the roll out for The Water Diviner:

Its international performance so far ($23 million before this weekend, including a strong $5 million in his native country) shows that he can still draw as an actor. Warner Bros. is the U.S. distributor (though not producer), and opted to go for an initial limited national release. … To its credit, yesterday had a 41% jump from Friday. … The A- Cinemascore indicates decent initial response (and adult moviegoers tend to be a little more critical, so the score might actually be more impressive).

What comes next: Warners has a distribution-only deal, and expects to keep this limited with no major expansion plans. The real sign of how this is faring will come with next weekend’s results, but at this point it has a chance to play for several weeks (in a period with less adult competition) if the public responds favorably.
