This Friday, Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" judge Adam Levine will make his feature film debut. Having rock stars, pop stars and musicians appear in movies is nothing new, but what's always up in the air is how good their performance will be. Will Levine's first film turn out to be a strong performance like Eminem in "8 Mile"? Or will he fall into Madonna's "Swept Away" category? We'll find out this weekend, but for now let's take a look at some of the best and worst performances by music artists in film. Let us know if you agree and if we've left anyone out in the comments.

Usually June is associated with the first real month of summer -- a time to go out and frolic through the wilderness like a snowman that doesn't know any better. But it also gets really, really hot, which has people retreating to their local multiplex or, even better, their luxuriously air-conditioned living rooms. With that in mind, take a look at the television shows and movies that will be available on Netflix's steaming service come June (via Vulture).
Thought the snail-who-dreamed-of-being-a-racecar saga ended with last summer's DreamWorks Animated joint "Turbo?" Think again. Apparently there's a television spin-off. And you can watch it on Netflix. We also have to give it up for a pair of wonderful sequels that are going to be on in June: the obviously-shot-in-Canada-even-though-it's-set-in-New York robo-epic "Short Circuit 2" (a favorite since childhood) and the far darker and more sinister "Wolf Creek 2," a sequel to the »

I am just going to start this off with a Spoiler Alert! If you haven’t had a chance to finish season 4 of The Walking Dead, then I suggest that you stop reading. I am going to try to keep the spoilers to a minimum, however, if I let a few slip I don’t want you placing burning sacks of poo on my front porch. It’s not nice and I might be forced to put it out with my new boots and no one wants that.
For those of you who have been through the muck of season 4, you know that no one is safe from being taken out. If it drives the story, the writers of Twd have no problem killing a main character off. So, let us travel down hypothetical lane and see who could potentially be killed off and why. There will be a Death »

According to Variety, Warner Bros.’ King Arthur is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2016. Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes, Swept Away) will direct, with Joby Harold (Awake, Edge Of Tomorrow) on script duty. It was rumored that WB were looking at Ritchie to bring a six-film take on the classic tale to the screen, but Variety make no mention of that in their report. There have been various movies, comics and tv shows based around Arthurian legend over the years, including the underrated Camelot and the mediocre Disney produced flick with Clive Owen in the title role. The most successful take was arguably John Boorman's Excalibur back in 1981. Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell will produce, no cast is in place yet. »

• Remind yourself of Madonna's last effort behind the camera
Despite the critical and commercial failure of her last directorial effort, W.E., Madonna is to return to film directing with Adé: A Love Story, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Rebecca Walker.
Walker, the daughter of The Color Purple author Alice Walker, published the novel last year. It concerns a pair of Us students travelling in Kenya, one of whom falls in love with a local man, Adé – she adopts an Arabic name, and tries to adjust to a new life in unfamiliar surroundings, before encountering cultural friction as the pair try to visit the Us. Armchair psychologists might point to parallels with Madonna's life: the singer moved to the UK to live with film-maker husband Guy Ritchie, »
