Fearless Conference, ESPN App Crash, Sully Tops Weekend Box Office

Designed to help with entrepreneurship and creativity, a conference for women is making a return trip to Philadelphia after its successful debut last year. The Fearless Conference is a two day event hosted in Philadelphia, Oct 1st -2nd. It was created by Melissa Alam, the founder of the digital platform Femme and Fortune. Now in its second year, the conference will include interactive workshops with local business leaders, panels, and inspirational keynotes.

Fantasy football players were enraged when ESPN's fantasy sports platform crashed on the first Sunday of the NFL season. The outage began around 1 p.m. ET on Sunday - just as nine NFL games kicked off around the country. ESPN Fantasy Sports said in a tweet that it is "aware of the current technical difficulties" and is "working to resolve the issue ASAP." The company did not respond to CNNMoney’s request for additional information. By about 4 p.m. ET, in time for the day’s second round of games, the associated app and website became at least partially operational for some users, but the company said it was still working to fully resolve the issues. Fantasy sports is big business for Disney-owned ESPN, which also incorporates it into coverage of real games. ESPN boasts what it says is the most widely used fantasy football site in the country. The company said in October of last year that the app had about 7.1 million unique users. Last month, it announced that during a period of less than two days, as its first televised fantasy football marathon event occurred, 1.7 million teams were drafted. It’s not the first time fantasy football players have dealt with a massive glitch during game time. ESPN’s app has crashed during opening week in the past. And Yahoo, which operates the second most popular fantasy site, experienced a similar snafu in 2013 when the app crashed on the first day of the season.

Sully flies high at the box office. The Tom Hanks-starring real-life drama about the Miracle on the Hudson, directed by Clint Eastwood, finished first at the box office by earning an estimated $36-million on its weekend debut. Another new attraction was the runner-up: the suspense thriller, When the Bough Breaks, with Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall. It opened by taking in $15-million. That dropped the leader of the last two weekends – the thriller, Don’t Breathe - into third place with $8-million. The holdover, Suicide Squad, finished fourth with $5-million, the only other title to pass the $5-million mark. Overall, industry-wide totals were modest, about the same as those of last weekend and slightly higher than those of a year ago.
