George Michael Remembered as Hollywood Pays Tribute to Pop Superstar
Earlier today, we reported the unfortunate news that pop music icon George Michael had passed away at the age of 53, after suffering from a heart failure. While his death was certainly unexpected, there is no foul play suspected, as the Hollywood community and fans around the world are in mourning at this devastating loss. As fans begin the grieving process, we have compiled a number of statements and tributes that have been sent out through social media over the past 24 hours, since the musician's untimely passing was announced.

One of the first to pay tribute to this late musician was his collaborator in the 1980s pop group Wham!, Andrew Ridgeley. Both George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley attended high school together, before forming Wham! in 1981. The group skyrocketed to fame with their 1984 album Make It Big, which was certified 6x platinum and included the smash hit singles "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" and "Freedom.

Doug Ellin: 'Entourage' movie in next 16 months

  • Pop2it
After eight seasons of palling around L.A. and living like very lovable (if sometimes misogynistic) kings, Adrian Grenier and the cast of "Entourage" will kick off the show's final season on Sunday (July 24). But Tuesday (July 19) night in New York, the cast gathered for one last season premiere bash.

Zap2it was there to capture the scene and talk to some of the show's stars.

"[Vincent Chase] has a lot of proving to do," show star Adrian Grenier tells Zap2it of the upcoming season. "He has to show everyone that's he able to overcome and come out on top. It's going to be an extremely touching, nostalgic season. We're like a family off set and that's really going to come through this season."

Series creator Doug Ellin was also on hand and feeling the nostalgia. After eight seasons, he's still kind of surprised that the show found such a big following.

Memphis Beat TV Review And Giveaway

Back when Mallrats was released, I swore I knew Jason Lee from somewhere. I think it was several months before I was alerted to the fact that he was a professional skateboarder, and in case that wasn’t it, I might have seen him in a music video. I didn’t have my finger on the pulse back then.

I didn’t get much out of Mallrats, but I had oddly high hopes for Lee. It took a bit for him to get going, but then nice turns in Kissing a Fool, Mumford, and Almost Famous gave me a certain sense of satisfaction. Then, for several years, I started to get rather irritated by him. All I could think was that he has better work in him, but all I kept getting was Dreamcatcher, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Jersey Girl.

Platinum Dunes Signs With Paramount for ‘Butcherhouse Chronicles’

  • Screen Rant
When informed people (like those over at Collider, who brought this to our attention) think Platinum Dunes, they recall the production company owned by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. When I think Platinum Dunes, I imagine that Kanye West “Dancing in the Desert” music video.

But I digress.

Platinum Dunes has signed a first-look deal with Paramount, starting with their next film, The Butcherhouse Chronicles. A first-look deal, for those who don’t know, is (very briefly) an agreement in which a Party A (Paramount) has the right to pick up a project before Party B (Dunes) can offer it to anyone else.

The Butcherhouse Chronicles is a thriller that follows teenagers into an allegedly haunted house. Collider tells us the producers are calling it “The Breakfast Club in a haunted house” - although I swear that’s been the catchy pitch for 20 other movies in the last decade.
