Smash + Grab bringing both The Warriors and The Purge to a PC near you

Imagine finding yourself in an amalgamated hellish world of The Warriors amd The Purge what would you do? Would you a) start piling numerous wardrobes and other such furniture in front of all known entrances in your home or would you b) take to the streets with a crowbar in one hand, your favourite mix-tape blasting in your ears and your best attempt at looking like The Demon from Kiss daubed all over you face!?

Is Moving 'Glee' to NYC a Good Decision?

Is Moving 'Glee' to NYC a Good Decision?
Is Glee leaving Lima, Ohio, forever? While there's been no official confirmation, reports are swirling that the Fox series – which has been in turmoil since star Cory Monteith died of a drug overdose on July 13th – may soon do away with mainstay McKinley High and permanently relocate to New York City. While some of the characters, including Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer), have already made the move, it would still be a seismic shift, considering most of the cast currently wanders the halls of the fictional Midwestern school.

Shane Black interview: Iron Man 3, screenwriting, Christmas and more

Interview Ryan Lambie 22 Apr 2013 - 07:13

With Iron Man 3 out soon, we sat down with writer and director Shane Black about screenwriting, action, Last Action Hero and Christmas...

When Shane Black talks about action, he makes explosion noises, like an excitable kid describing an episode of Thunderbirds. "Smash! An explosion of blood! Smash! Glass shattering!"

Composed and thoughtful when he talks about the business side of filmmaking, Black becomes animated and passionate when talk turns to screenwriting, or the composition of action scenes, and it's Black's passion for writing and action - not to mention his trademark wit - that has made him one of the biggest names in Hollywood. His script for Lethal Weapon, which he sold on spec at the age of just 23, launched a legion copycat buddy-cop movies, while The Last Boy Scout and The Long Kiss Goodnight remain cult favourites.

Having turned to directing as

Should the Good Wife Cut Loose? Who Needs to Be Dead? Parks & Rec's Big Hero? And More Qs
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Good Wife, The Following, Arrow and Grey’s Anatomy!

1 | Can Saturday Night Live‘s Olya Povlatsky please show up as often as possible? (And wasn’t it fun to see Seth Meyer’s uncontainable giggles?)

2 | Who’s rooting for The Good Wife to make Florrick, Agos and Associates a reality? If there’s anything this week’s episode proved, it’s that Alicia and Cary vs. Will and Diane is gold. And

WWE, WCW & Tna’s 12 Strangest Wrestling Gimmick Matches

WWE Extreme Rules is the time of year where stipulation matches take centre stage, so what better time to look back at some of the strangest gimmick matches in wrestling history.

Kennel from Hell

Watch It Here

So a retired prison guard steals your dog, invites you over and tricks you into eating him. How do you get revenge? Challenge them to a, “Kennel from Hell” that’s how! On paper it sounded intimidating. A cage surrounding the ring, a hell in the cell surrounding that and in between those rabid dogs. The only way to win was to escape both cages and outrun those angry dogs. Sounds exciting. Unfortunately it wasn’t.

The first (and last) “Kennel from Hell,“ took place at WWF Unforgiven 1999, between Al Snow and the Big Bossman. Unforgiven was already an odd event before the Kennel even came out. The first match of the evening

AfterElton Briefs: Whoopi On "Glee," Nom's Sleaziness, and Tom Hardy Will Not Be Playing Gareth Thomas

Birthday shoutouts go to the adorable Nathan Fillion (above), who turns 41, and out jazzman Dave Koz is 49. Hello! Hello! Hello! It's time for Xuxa , who's 49, faboo ally Pauley Perrette is 43, and Fergie is 37. Do a Fergie/Black Eyed Peas list if you must, but I'm doing Mariah Carey, who's 42 today. Here are my top five, but I'm all about vintage Mariah, when she was actually singing, and not doing that breathless-whisper thing that she does now.: 5. "Always Be My Baby" 4. "Dreamlover," 3. "Make It Happen," 2. "Vision Of Love," 1. "Can't Let Go"The big news today was the Hrc releasing the previously sealed documents from Nom's adventures in Maine, revealing that Nom is just as sleazy as everyone already knew. As always, Thomas Roberts is the first on-air anchor to expose their B.S.

Yesterday I mentioned the names being bandied about to play Carrie's mother in the unnecessary remake, and

Morning Meme: Robbie Williams Names His Price, Lady Gaga Has Gone Good, and Are Chris Colfer and Jennifer Saunders Besties?

Just a reminder, we're on a reduced schedule this week. We'll have a Meme, Briefs, and a few things in between. We'll be back to our normal schedule next week. Until then follow our Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr for things that we hope will amuse you.

Robbie Williams was on his Radio Rudebox show when friends suggested that £5 million was a good price to pay him for gay sex. Williams considered it and decided that £2 million was fair, but not for Brad Pitt. "It’s £2 million for Santa, but it’s a freebie for Brad Pitt." He then thought for a minute and said “How much would I have to pay him?”

Good news everyone! Paris Hilton is no longer banned from the Wynn Hotels in Las Vegas after being arrested in the bathrooms. Which means it's safe for the rest of us at The Palms.

Morning Meme: Alan Cumming's Character Lives Up To His Name, Russell Tovey Gets Nelly, and Matt Dillon's Abs Hit "Modern Family"

We're looking for you to tweet us your Valentine's Day wishes for your real-life Valentine, and we'll be featuring some of them in Briefs today. Just tell @AfterElton what sweet nothings you want to whisper to that special someone.

Jack Davenport (Coupling fame) is set to play a choreographer in Smash, also known as Will & Grace: The Musical. No word on whether he’s straight or gay.

Alan Cumming’s character on The Good Wife hasn’t had a love life in the past, but that’s about to change. Which is good, because Cumming always imagined his character was a chronic masturbator.

I won’t spoil the rest of Gwyneth Paltrow’s return to Glee, but since we already know that she’s doing “Kiss” as a duet with Mr. Schuester, I don’t feel guilty saying they do it as a tango.
