‘Glee’ Star Mark Salling Dead at 35
Mark Salling has died at the age of 35. The former “Glee” star was reportedly found near a riverbed by his home in Sunland, Los Angeles. TMZ reports Salling’s death was a possible suicide, but the L.A. coroner has not yet confirmed the cause of death.

But alas it never went anywhere, and things have mostly been pretty quiet around the property.

That night, the hitman realizes that he must fight three unlikely adversaries from his past, present and future if he’s to avenge his friend’s death and find out who he really is in the process.

Kevin Tancharoen no longer directing Mortal Kombat reboot

Just weeks after the online release of Mortal Kombat: Legacy II - the second season of the popular live-action web series - director Kevin Tancharoen (Fame, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie) has revealed via Twitter that he's "decided to move on to other creative opportunities" and will no longer helm Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema's big screen reboot of the classic video game beat-em-up franchise.

Tancharoen originally secured the directing gig on Mortal Kombat back in 2011, having impressed with his 2010 proof of concept short Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, which then led to then ten-episode web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The script for the new Mortal Kombat has been written by Oren Uziel (Rebirth), who also happens to have 22 Jump Street and Men in Black 4 on his upcoming slate, but with the project now without a director it's unclear as to the status of the planned reboot.

'One Direction: This Is Us' storms UK box office - top 10 in full

'One Direction: This Is Us' storms UK box office - top 10 in full
One Direction's 3D documentary This Is Us has stormed to the top of the UK box office on its first weekend on release.

The movie, directed by Morgan Spurlock and produced by Simon Cowell, earned more than £3.4 million to send Matt Damon's blockbuster Elysium into second place.

This Is Us's box office opening is by far the strongest for a recent 3D concert film. Previous offerings have failed to crack the £1 million mark, with Justin Bieber's Never Say Never getting closest in 2011 with £820,592.

By comparison, 2012's Katy Perry: Part of Me bowed to £449,491, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie earned £356,271 in 2011 and 2009's Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Performance took just £117,060.

This Is Us is also the number one movie Stateside with a $17 million haul over the Labor Day weekend.

Elsewhere in the UK, new releases Pain & Gain, The Way Way Back and You're Next all

Cory Monteith: A Look Back At Late Actor's Past Drug Abuse & Rehab Stints
The cause of Cory Monteith's death is still not known, an autopsy on the actor is scheduled for today, but over the years the "Glee" star opened up about his past drug use and time spent in rehab.

During the junket for 2011's "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie," Monteith spoke to Access Hollywood about going public with his past.

"I think it's important for me to kind of provide an example kind... lead by example and kind of use my experience to inspire others," Monteith, who was in rehab multiple times - most recently in March - told ...

Grow Up: Actors Who Played Younger ... Way Younger

They say that high school is never really over, and it would appear that some aging actors take the adage very seriously.

The trailer for Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck's upcoming film "Runner, Runner" premiered yesterday, and our favorite *NSYNCer finds himself regressing to those frosted tip days of youth. Mr. Timberlake plays Richie, a spritely Princeton student who finds himself in deep financial heat. Richie is probably college age (18-22), which makes Timberlake, 32, at least 10 years older than his character.

This baffling case of cinematic time travel got us thinking: What other stars have deceived us and played younger characters when they were in fact not that young at all? We did a little digging, and the findings made our 18-year-old (but actually 34, oops) hearts skip a beat.

Regina's age: 16-17

Rachel's age at the time: 26

‘Metallica Through the Never’ Trailer: A New Twist on the 3D Concert Movie

Most concert movies are pretty cut-and-dry in their approach, in terms of how they glorify their musician/musical group subject and attempt to make them seem relatable at the same time (example: Justin Bieber: Never Say Never). Recent additions to the (genre?) have attempted to mix things up in… curious ways – like having the cast of Glee remain in character throughout the Glee: The 3D Concert Movie – and the upcoming Metallica Through the Never will go even further, by weaving a full-blown fictional narrative into the mix.

Metallica features 3D footage of the iconic heavy metal band performing live for a sold-out arena, in combination with a fictional storyline that revolves around their band crew member, Trip (Dane DeHaan), undertaking a mission for the band when “he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.” DeHaan, of course, is an up-and-comer, thanks ...

One in every family: Lesbian sisters, moms and daughters of celebrities

Tags: Rosario DawsonMary CheneycelebritiesMarie OsmondJennifer LopezKristanna LokenIMDb

Too often anti-gay people are homophobic because they don't think they know anyone gay. But statistics show that, well, we're everywhere — there's at least one of us in every family. We have power within our own families and communities to inspire change, and you can see that in these sisters, mothers and aunts who have inspired their high-profile relations. We can see their change in activism, on screen and in specific subcultures that don't often have discussions on different sexualities.

This week, Jennifer Lopez told Access Hollywood that her gay aunt inspired her to create The Fosters for ABC Family, which is poised to be a pivotal show about an interracial lesbian couple who also happen to be mothers. (Yes, One Million Moms is already hating it and we haven't even seen one episode.)

Get Over Here and Check out the Trailer for 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy II'!

Get Over Here and Check out the Trailer for 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy II'!
2011's Mortal Kombat: Legacy was a fun, gritty web series that deconstructed the Mk mythos in a surprisingly intelligent way, helmed by the unlikely Kevin Tancharoen (whose credits include the Fame remake and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie), who made the transition from musicals to Mortal Kombat with fantastic results.

Well, with millions of hits on YouTube and a DVD release of Mk: L selling well, it was only a matter of time before a second "season" of the web series would be produced, and the lovely folks at Machinima have put up a trailer for the forthcoming Season 2, which you can check out below.

 

 

I'll be honest, there's a lot of nerdy joy to be gleaned from Mortal Kombat: Legacy's second season if this trailer is any indicator.  Johnny Cage is now being played by Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), and Cary Tagawa will be reprising the role

Pitch Reels show alternate visions for ‘Daredevil’, ‘Halloween’, and ‘The Hunger Games’

The process that studios go through to pick a director for a project is often one that’s hidden from public view, with nothing more than rumours of potential hires and people who make a play for the job. This often leads to speculation of what certain films would look like under the guidance of other directors who may have been interested. While until now, speculation is all that film fans have had to go on, recently a few pitch reels have been released to the public. Pitch reels are short trailers put together by directors who want to give a studio an idea of their vision for a film. In most cases, the casting or story may not end up the way the pitch reel displays it, but it’s nonetheless a fascinating glimpse into the mindset of sertain people with regards to projects they were pursuing.
