CeeLo Green's The Good Life Canceled in Wake Controversial Rape Remarks and Legal Drama
Just days after making controversial comments on Twitter about rape, E! News can confirm that CeeLo Green's TBS show, The Good Life, will not be returning for a second season. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the unscripted series would not be coming back to the silver screen after just six episodes. The show followed the former Voice star as he balanced his hectic schedule of recording, touring, and producing other artists. Green's show cancellation comes on the heels of a rather eventful weekend for the singer. On Friday, he pleaded no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a female in 2012. He also entered a special plea in which he maintained his innocence »
Piers Morgan Exits CNN After Turning Down 2-Year Deal
Piers Morgan, the CNN primetime host whose efforts to provide the network with a new type of celebrity-interview show met with ratings headwinds, has officially left the cable news channel after declining a new two-year deal that would have made him the host of a sporadic interview series.
“I was offered a new 2-year deal by CNN boss Jeff Zucker to host 40 big interview ‘specials,'” Morgan said via Twitter. “But after considerable thought, I decided not to accept it – and to try pastures new.”
Morgan began anchoring the network’s 9 p.m. slot in January 2011, replacing the durable “Larry King Live” with a celebrity-interview show that did not always hit the target with CNN viewers. The program, in which Morgan could be seen breaking away from conversations with perplexed guests like Gregg Allman to ask if they had inadvertently given him a scoop in their responses, proved to be »

Khloé Kardashian meets up with Bruce Jenner at the golf course for some family bonding time...but could she have an ulterior motive? While taking turns practicing their swings, the subject of Kim Kardashian's wedding suddenly comes up. "Your ponytail looks cute," Khloé slyly says.

‘Sleepy Hollow’ Marketers Sorry for ‘National Beheading Day’ Stunt
The Fox series “Sleepy Hollow” drew ire on social media Tuesday for a marketing campaign touting “National Beheading Day” on the same day the world learned terrorist group Isis claimed to have decapitated American journalist Steven Sotloff.
In a case of unfortunate timing, commemorative eCards declaring #HeadlessDay were released to promote of the show’s upcoming season one DVD and Blu-ray. “Hollow” wasn’t deliberately trying to invoke the day’s tragic news; the campaign was intended to invoke the show’s Headless Horseman character.
Naturally, that had some on social media crying foul considering not just the Sotloff tragedy, but the killing of another American journalist, James Foley, just weeks ago at the hands of Isis.
@sims @theTVaddict Not sure w/ tragic news this morning regard executed journalist Steven Sotloff that #HeadlessDay campaign is approrpiate—

First 4Dx Theater in U.S. a Hit with Audiences, Data Shows (Exclusive)
It jerks. It rumbles. It sprays. It smokes. It smells.
Now 4Dx, the souped up theatrical experience that premiered in Regal Cinemas La Live location this June, is outperforming traditional movie theaters, according to statistics shared exclusively with Variety.
The 104-seat theater, the first of its kind in the U.S., played to sellout weekend crowds and enjoyed a 63% occupancy rate regardless of the day of the week or the showtime, despite being unveiled right as the summer box office suffered a sharp plunge. Ticket sales for the summer were down 15% year-over-year, but the theater took advantage of its uniqueness in order to draw crowds. Most theaters operate at between 10% to 15% capacity on week nights and other off-peak times.
“There was certainly the ‘new kid in town factor,’ but we’ve seen in other territories that we have three to four times the occupancy rates of most theaters,” said Angela Killoren, »

Venice Film Review: ‘Fires on the Plain’
There are horrors-of-war movies (“Come and See”), and then there are World War II horror movies (“Dead Snow”), and judging by “Fires on the Plain,” it’s not entirely clear whether Japanese splatter director Shinya Tsukamoto understands the difference. The “Tetsuo: The Iron Man” helmer claims to have long dreamed of filming Shohei Ooka’s 1951 novel, already adapted far more artfully by Kon Ichikawa, but . Despite the credibility a Venice competition slot imparts, “Fires” feels more giallo than arthouse.
Reminiscent of the stretch where Teuton hack Uwe Boll tried to earn back some respect by directing pics about Auschwitz and Darfur, Tsukamoto’s passion project represents an earnest attempt to make a statement, held back by some of the B-movie helmer’s own worst instincts. Serving as both lead actor and his own d.p. (alongside Satoshi Hayashi), Tsukamoto shoots mostly handheld in a spastic, jump-cut style, seldom lingering long enough for us to absorb, »

Missing College Student Found Dead in His Car a Week After He Went Missing
The body of Lucius Robbi, who went missing on Aug. 19, was found in his car on Thursday, according to authorities. The 21-year-old University of Montana student instantly died from blunt force trauma to the head in a one-vehicle accident, Custer County Coroner Vicki Armbruster tells People. "The car hit a tree and went off a 60-foot embankment. This made it very hard to see from the road," Armbruster says. "A pine tree also fell on top of it, and a lot of other trees were in the area." A helicopter spotted the kayak on top of Robbi's Subaru in thick »

Bitch Stole My Look! Carrie Underwood vs. Britney Spears in Texas T-Shirts
Looks like two of the hottest country-bred singers are showing some love for the biggest country-loving state on the map. What's confusing is that neither Carrie Underwood nor Britney Spears are from Texas! The newest mama-to-be is an Oklahoma girl and the "Ooh La La" singer was born in Mississippi and raised in Louisiana. We were going to award this to the hometown girl, but technically speaking, neither singer should be wearing this shirt! So it comes down to style, which is always our favorite factor. The "Blown Away" singer went with an all-pink approach for her wading-in-the-water wear (does someone have baby girls on the brain?) We're loving those fuchsia short shorts and the »
Cinema Sins & Honest Trailers combine forces to lambaste 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'
Between the two of them, Cinema Sins and Honest Trailers succinctly lampoon tired tropes and thin characterizations in film. So it was only a matter of time before these juggernauts of parody combined forces. Like a sarcastic Voltron, they are more powerful together then we could have ever imagined…wait, I think I just mixed metaphors there. Go with it. So what movie could rile their ire so completely that they'd enter this unholy alliance? None other than "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Watch below and relive the mind-bogglingly poor narrative decisions all over again! Honest Trailer: Cinema Sins: »
