Flatliners Remake Character Posters Stare Death in the Face
With just under one month left until Sony Pictures' Flatliners remake hits theaters, the studio has released four new character posters that shows completely different sides to the main characters. The posters feature Ellen Page's Courtney, Diego Luna's Ray, Nina Dobrev's Marlo and Kiersey Clemons' Sophia. While each of these characters has a seemingly normal expression, these one-sheets literally show another side of them, and it's clear they're truly terrified.

The posters surfaced on the Flatliners Twitter earlier today, although it remains uncertain if we'll get any more footage between now and the September 29 release date. The first Flatliners trailer didn't debut until mid-June, and with the release just a few weeks away, hopefully there will be more footage for fans to explore, before this reboot hits theaters. For fans of the original movie, there will be a familiar face involved, although he isn't seen on any of these posters.

"Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie - I just can't," he said when asked if he dates. "Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I'd like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn't? It's just hard to meet new people, in my position."

Eminem Can't Understand Why His Father Left His Family

Eminem "can't understand" why his father walked out on his family. The "We Made You" star has had minimal contact with his dad Marshall Mathers Jr. since he abandoned him when he was just a baby and admits he can't imagine ever neglecting his own children in the same way.

"I never knew him, never met him, never knew him. I don't know if I want to see him. Some people ask me that, and I don't think I do," he said. "I can't understand how he could leave us. If my kids moved to the edge of the earth, I'd find them. No doubt in my mind. No money, no nothing - if I had nothing I'd find my kids. So there's no excuse."

The hip-hop superstar has a 14-year-old daughter Hailie, his child with ex-wife Kimberley Scott, and two adopted girls Alaina, the child of Kimberley's sister, and Whitney,

Eminem Scares Himself With the Extent of His Drug Addiction

Eminem "scared himself" with the extent of his drug addiction. The rapper admits he only gave up taking illegal substances for good after he relapsed just weeks after an almost fatal drug-taking session in late 2007.

"I had overdosed in 2007, like right around Christmas in 2007... I pretty much almost died," he explained. "You know, I pulled through and went home and relapsed less than a month later and I literally shot back up to the amount of pills I was taking, shot right back up to where I overdosed..."

"Kind of I scared myself, like, 'Yo! I need to, I need help. Like I can't beat this on my own.' The things I was putting in my body, my tolerance got so high. I got to the point where I couldn't even count how many pills I was taking."

The hip-hop superstar has a 14-year-old daughter Hailie, his child with ex-wife Kimberley Scott,
