Mama June Shannon shocked the world this year with her astounding body transformation, after dropping down from 460 pounds to a super-skinny size 4 in just a few months. But the journey was a difficult one, filled with emotional turmoil and painstaking surgical procedures.

While Mama June seemed to shed the pounds rather quickly, the transformation didn't happen overnight. The reality star has been working on getting healthy and fit for years, suffering numerous setbacks and facing many obstacles.

For a better appreciation of Mama June's long, arduous battle for a fit physique, we've compiled a comprehensive timeline of her weight loss transformation.

Mama June Has Second Thoughts After Skin Removal Surgery on 'From Not to Hot' -- See Her Transformation!

Warning: Nsfw! Graphic images ahead!

Mama June got the skin removal surgery she thought she wanted on Friday's episode of From Not to Hot, but it turns out, recovery is a lot harder than she expected.

Last week's episode of the We tv series saw June's manager, Gina, cancel her tummy tuck and breast lift after she failed to get down to the 190 pounds her doctor required for the surgery, but the move might have been the reality check she needed to stop stress eating and get back in shape.

Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin staged an intervention at the beginning of Friday's episode, rescheduling their mom's surgery for a couple weeks later, and promising to help her drop the weight.

"Even when I was at my heaviest, at 450, I never once looked at myself as being big. And now that I'm smaller, all I want to do is go ahead and get this skin off," June said to the camera. "No matter how hard I work out, nothing

Sluggish China Box Office Brings Down 2016’s Global Totals

Sluggish China Box Office Brings Down 2016’s Global Totals
Publicly, studio executives tend to be a rosy bunch, predicting that each year’s crop of movies will be better than that which preceded it. But behind closed doors, few in the business were expecting much from 2016.

When the final numbers are tallied, the global box office will probably fall short of last year’s record-breaking $38.9 billion. Most observers expect ticket sales to fall roughly 2% to just over $38 billion. That decline is reason for some alarm, particularly as the shortfall is largely attributable to a slowdown in China. After years of explosive growth, in which returns were expanding at a 40% clip annually, revenue in China was essentially flat in 2016 — a disappointment for the world’s second-largest film market, which had been expected to surpass the U.S. in terms of revenue in a matter of months.

“As China goes, so goes the international marketplace,” notes Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore.

The Biggest Opening Weekends of 2016

Luke Owen charts the biggest opening weekends of 2016…

It’s fair to say that 2016 has been rather disappointing in terms of the quality of movie delivered, and the biggest opening weekend for 2016 would have been fourth last year behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World and Avengers: Age of Ultron. With that said, there were eight films this year that opened to more than $100 million (compared to six last year and two the year before) meaning that the Top 10 of 2016 earned the same amount as the Top 10 of 2015 ($1.2 billion). So while the total box office might have been down year on year, it wasn’t by much.

One studio who won’t be too upset is Disney who have a whopping six movies in the Top 10 and another in the Top 20. Warner Bros. got two entries, but will likely be disappointed that a certain Wizarding World didn’t crack the upper echelon.

Singapore’s Maiden Sundance Selection ‘Pop Aye’ Picked Up by Cercamon

Singapore’s Maiden Sundance Selection ‘Pop Aye’ Picked Up by Cercamon
After a busy year, Singapore film making is now additionally celebrating the selection of “Pop Aye” as the opening movie in the 2017 Sundance Film Festival’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition section.

The road trip drama is the first feature by Tan and the first time that a Singapore film has found such a prominent position in Sundance.

It has also secured international sales representation through Cercamon. The Dubai-based sales agency was established last year by Sebastien Chesneau, former sales head at Rezo Films International.

The film’s selection comes after a banner year that included the selection of Boo Junfeng’s Apprentice and K Rajagopal’s “A Yellow Bird” for slots in different sections of the Cannes festival.

Production is by Lai Wenjie at E&W Films and executive production by Giraffe Pictures. Giraffe is the production label of director Anthony Chen, who won the Camera d’Or at Cannes in 2013 with “Ilo Ilo.

[Review] Boo! A Madea Halloween

You know you are in trouble when the funniest part of a movie is Madea’s discussion of her retirement account. (She calls it her “Ho-01K” account, because she couldn’t open a 401K due to her illegal income.) Yes, it might finally be time to pull the plug on Madea, the strong-willed former stripper who just so happens to be everybody’s wacky aunt.

In his latest outing, the man behind Madea seems bored with his own creation, yet Tyler Perry only has himself to blame as writer, director, star, producer, and executive. His usual freedom and autonomy to green-light any project has led to interesting work the studio system might have passed on, like Daddy’s Little Girls and the somewhat brilliant Why Did I Get Married Too?. As of late, Perry has slowed down on the theatrical side, leaving an unusual two-year gap between his latest

The Girl on the Train, The Accountant, Moonlight, and more of what to watch in October

The Girl on the Train, The Accountant, Moonlight, and more of what to watch in OctoberThe Girl on the Train, The Accountant, Moonlight, and more of what to watch in OctoberAdriana Floridia10/3/2016 10:23:00 Am

October is one of our favourite months of the year, because we can start wearing sweaters, leaves are falling, and we can justify horror movie marathons all month long.

In theatres, however, we are getting a very interesting mix of thrills, scares, laughs, and some indie gems that caught our eye when they played the Toronto International Film Festival last month. That’s right, awards season is on the verge of beginning, and October features a couple of those highly buzzed titles. Among these are Moonlight and The Birth of a Nation, as well as some good old fun at the movies, like Tom Cruise returning as Jack Reacher, or Tom Hanks’ reprisal of Robert Langdon in Inferno.
