It is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2015.

The coffee retailer is teaming up with Duracell to offer wireless recharging of some smartphones. Duracell Powermat allows phones and tablets to be charged by simply laying them on pads that will be installed in Starbucks counters and tables. Starbucks plans a national rollout of the free service, starting with stores in California.

He was released May 31st, in exchange for five Taliban prisoners who were being held at Guantanamo Bay.

NUMBER 1 - IRAQ CONFLICT COULD RAISE GAS PRICES
The escalating conflict in Iraq could drive gas prices higher. Militant Islamists have captured several major Iraqi cities and are trying to push into Baghdad. As the violence increased Thursday, oil futures climbed to $106 a barrel. If oil prices keep heading north, analysts predict prices at the pump could jump more than 20 cents in the next couple weeks. The national average for gas is currently $3.65 a gallon.
