7:10 am
clench it before then. >> the democratic race, the tone seems to be changing. >> yeah, it has been a near mathematical certainty for a while that hillary clinton was going to be the nominee. i think the sanders campaign is starting to adjust the way that they're fighting. and focusing more on shifting how the democratic party runs its races and what it stands for than trying to win. >> why has bernie not dropped out? >> i think that's why. keep in mind he has been a democrat for a few months. he's not a party guy. he is an independent that wants to shake things up. the reason he's not dropping out. he wants to go to a convention and advocate with people backing him up for the things he stands for. >> you suggested also it might be harder for him to drop out. >> yeah. i think that if he were to drop out now his fans are so eager for him i think he'd face so much outcry from people. it's easier just to stay in. >> we thought these weeks have been interesting. if it's trump and hillary we'll have lots of interesting things

as they can. when go online to make a reservation and look at a seating chart. guess what the only seats available are the middle seats. the problem then is it's an upsell. it's like planned agony. they want you to upsell to a more preferred seat. here's the problem. airlines define a preferred seat as a seat that's closer to the front of the plane. they include middle seat as a preferred seat there. >> i noticed that. >> the bottom line, is you need to go to other websites to look for what's really available. because what's available is only what the airline wants to show you on their website. so go to a website like seat guru.com. to see the actual configuration of the plane you're on. you can look for certain seats that may not be reflected seats. so many people get upset because they end up stuck in a middle
7:49 am

police say the most important thing was that the women managed to stay warm. >> they stayed together. police are applauding them for their efforts and their calm thinking. they stayed together, they stayed warm. and rationed their resources out. understandably a little bit worse for wear now, dehydrated and exhausted. >> they were spotted by a search helicopter then picked up and taken for medical treatment. a woman who likes watching criminal mysteries gets solved on tv managed to do that in the spanish city of seville. she noticed something investigators didn't. >> reporter: common has swept leaves and picked up garbage at a park in seville spain for 28 years. what she collected behind a park bench landed her in the middle of her own crime scene
8:05 am
there was a pile of bloody tissues she said. they were items that belonged to a 28-year-old woman who police believed overdosed on drugs and died in the park. authorities just left the bloody items for barbagegarbage pickup. she wondered why so much blood. this is evidence she said. her only crime scene experience came from watching her favorite american television show. following what she saw on tv, she used plastic bags to carefully collect the evidence without contaminating it and stored it just in case police ever needed it. when an autopsy later proved the woman likely died from being violently raped. police couldn't believe they ignored evidence and were stunned to learn she saved it. the dna evidence she collected has led to the arrest of a local man. the prosecutor credits her for

i had so many thoughts once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless youdoctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, andin rare cases, fatal bleeding.
8:10 am
or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injectionwhile on eliquis call your doctor right away ifyou have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you maybruise more easily... and it may take longerthan usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care forsudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase yourbleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about allplanned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.
8:11 am
that's a visual i want to get out of my head. >> sports fans can seem like a crazy bunch. >> i have a pair of lucky boxers. >> they are superstitious. they'll root for teams that perpetially disappoint. and none of them can resist the allure of a tee shirt. >> that was his. >> upon further review the behavior may not be as strange as it appeared. a closer look reveals sports fans might not be that crazy after all. a new book offers just that kind of closer look. it's titled this is your brain on sports. the value of rivalry and what we can learn from the tee shirt cannon. >> joining us now is its
8:12 am
editor of sports illustrated. good morning. let's talk about the tee shirt cannon. >> paul mccarthney wants one. >> i was reaching for them and i'm not even a fan why do i need the tee shirt. >> you don't know if it's your size. we love the tee shirt cannon it taps in to two things. scarcity, the other is that it's free. and human behavior changes radically when something costs nothing. catch one of these if you give the usher a nickel you get to keep it. but free. >> it's free promotion for them. you become a walking ad of whatever that shirt has on it. what about we saw fans doing there the distraction does that actually work? >> oh, the free throw shooting and -- no, it doesn't work. there's little to suggest that.
8:13 am
>> because what's the alternative? sitting there and doing nothing. that would seem sort of weird. we do that in sports in other ways too. there's a lot of studies that say like shootouts in soccer. the goalie has to guess one way or the other. they would be more effective if they stood in the middle of the goal. we do that in life. there are all sorts of applications, portfolio manager will trade too quickly. a doctor will prescribe and diagnose. you can't just say do nothing. we like to act. it's called the action bias and sometimes it gets us in trouble. >> you have a chapter entitled why rooting for the mets is building the ikea desk. as a mets fan i understand this. but explain that to me. >> noebldbody could figure out ikea for a long time. it had customer satisfaction. but you build everything yourself.
8:14 am
build this, they really overvalue the product. it's because of all the effort that went into it that it distorts their value when they had to struggle. same with a sports fan. you root with the mets, guy wins a batting title, guys win an award. when they finally get to the world series, it's viewed as a different value if you were a yankees fan. >> we believe in suffering. >> exactly. >> the psychology i found fascinating. i think it's our nature, you're watching any game even if you have no vested interest you say they're the ones that are supposed to lose. why do we do that? >> it's irrational. usually we want to align with winners. why is it we watch sports and by definition has the less chance of success that's who we want to win. we do this. there has been research. why is an interesting question. some of it is we like what the underdog represents. the little guy can take down the giant and all the sort of striving.
8:15 am
about underdogs is that people get that concept. so corporations, always try to position themselves we're do know evil. we're not a big tech company we're little guys. politicians they have born in log cabins nobody says i grew up with a lot of privilege it's nice to be here. one thing about underdogs is we love them. once the game is over we move on. it's not like we're the small schools in the ncaa tournament. not like we're butler fans for life. we enjoy the run. >> you look at myths, like the idea that quarterbacks are always the best looking players on the team. >> that's not actually true. that was a concept we looked into and it wasn't true. it really is a myth. we ran our study. i wrote this with a social psychologist and what we came up with, by position, quarterbacks, blind taste test non-fans. quarterbacks not statistically better looks. we think they are.
8:16 am
halo effect. we like one quality about something, their singing voice and we assume all sorts of other things, they must be nice, generous and funny. same with quarterbacks. they're the face of the franchise. >> all right. fascinating stuff. thanks so much. the book is this is your brain on sports. it is on sale now. up next, our summer movie preview including finding dory. the sequel to the disney animated classic finding nemo. and another blockbuster sequel independence day resurgence.

captain america? it's an honor. i'm shaking your hand too long. wow. this is awesome. captain america. i know you too, you're great. look i want to say i know you know a lot of super people. thanks for thinking of me. >> that's from captain america, civil war. the latest blockbuster from marvel opening nationwide next friday despite the calendar. it also kicks off the summer movie season. it's time to review the most eagerly awaited movies in the pipe line and we have the managing editor for screen crush.com. is captain america the hit of the summer. it's hyped everywhere. >> it's a lot of fun. it's called captain america civil war. but there's a bigger cast than
8:21 am
we saw paul rudd so many actors. they have new actors like the black panther guy. a new spiderman. there are almost as many people fighting as there were in the actual civil war. and so, i mean, less is more. not a credence that marvel adheres to. i've seen the movie. it's a lot of fun. there is a big fight scene at an airport that is going to go down in history. >> box office of the last three summers has been flat. could it be that they just -- because they keep making the same movies over and over again? >> i guess that's possible. every year there's another reason not to go to the movie theater. the reason might be there's a new season of my favorite show streaming online or the reason could be the last time i went to the movie theater the guy was taking pictures of the phone. this happened to me. he was using his flash to take pictures. i don't know if you can tell, this bothered me. >> sensing it.
8:22 am
to be something to get you not only to want to see the move but need to see the movie. now, you can say they make the same ones over and over again. they're trying to make events. >> tell us about money monster. you mentioned how films are the revenues are bringing in. george clooney's movies they haven't performed that well. >> he hasn't had a big hit. he plays a jim cramer tv host. he's taken hostage live on the air. julia roberts plays the director of his show. given the subject matter i feel like this movie could be timely and relevant. this is the summer movie season when timely and relevant are not always the most popular qualities in movies. people tend to go for more explosions and punching. so i think the hope here is maybe if the movie is good it's counter programming it's the movie you see if you're not in the mood for captain america. >> this is an event for me.
8:23 am
finding nemo. >> it's finally here. >> you guys are excited. two tickets sold for sure. pixar's track record with sequels has been spotty. i don't think my arms can stretch wide enough to show you the gulf between toy story 2 and cars 2. the guy who made finding nemo came back to pixar to make the movie. you hope he can recapture the movie one more time. >> 20 years later they're making a sequel. independence day. that's a long time to wait. >> no will smith. >> no will smith. someone plays his son. that's how they're getting around that thing. what they're hoping for here is to be the jarurassic world. to be the sequel to a beloved 90s blockbuster. the reason the director has given in interviews is will smith has made a bunch of
8:24 am
recently he wanted to do something different. perhaps he saw the screen play and that may have affected his judgment. that's the reason that was given. >> moving on to july we have a new steven spielberg film. >> you think of e.t. or at least i do and the interesting thing here is the writer of e.t. melissa mathson wrote the screen play for this film. they hope they've recaptured the magic. it's based on a book. to me, that sort of combination of subject matter and creators is very exciting. >> i want to ask you about the ghostbusters remake. >> touchy subject for some people. >> high on my list. >> i hope it's great. >> the cast. melissa mccarthy. lesly jones these are the women you want to see. >> some people get touchy about they're remaking ghostbusters.
8:25 am
do i want to see a new gusthost busters, make it with the biggest comedy director and make it with the funniest people on the planet. these four women are amongst the funniest people around. i don't see how there could be a better possible ghostbusters. >> also in july we have the third film in j.j. abrams. >> they're going beyond the stars. if you like the previous ones this looks very much in the same style. childhoods where there are people talking about science. it's people running. again, it's the summer. punch. >> i didn't do well in science. >> you'll be fine. >> beyond beyond i can't believe we're up to the fifth installment of jason bourn. >> to me, this is one that i feel like is almost as sure of a maybe after captain america.
8:26 am
this movie not being successful. people love the bourn movies. so i think this one is going to be a huge hit. >> finally in august we have dc comics suicide squad? >> i think they're trying to kind of capture some of that guardians of the galaxy marvel magic. this is their attempt to do the version of that with a superhero team that's not well-known. will smith is in this one. he turned down independence day to make suicide squad. >> there's a rumor ben afflexfleck could be in here. >> he pops up a couple times in the trailer. supposedly he showed up to film a cameo. >> don't ever take a picture next to you. >> don't do that i'll get very upset. >> thank you as always. >> i'll text you from my
