IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Weekend Wrap-Up (03/25/2013)

Too busy working this weekend to stay up to date with all the entertainment news? Maybe you were/are too drunk?  Maybe you are a disgraced former secret service agent that needs to rescue the kidnapped President from the White House?  Whatever the reason, we have you covered so you won't feel like a moron on Facebook when everyone is whining about My Chemical Romance breaking up or T. Swift not winning anything this weekend.


MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE BREAKS UP

Yes, one of the early "pioneers" of emo have called it quits after 12 years.  Considering the band hasn't had a hit in nearly half that time, it's really not a big blow to anyone but their respective wallets but I'm sure there are some that are freaking out, balled up and crying and, to those readers, our condolences...Read More


DAFT PUNK ANNOUNCE LONG-AWAITED ALBUM

After airing a teaser commercial announcing their signing with new label Columbia Records, Daft Punk have officially announcing the release date for their first proper album since Human After All in 2005 (the band also release a live album titled Alive 2007, some new mixes for DJ Hero and writing the soundtrack for Tron: Legacy).  The new album "Random Access Memories" will hit stores May 21 and is available for preorder now...Read More


TEEN CHOICE AWARDS DOESN'T REALLY SURPRISE ANYONE

Spongebob, Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart, The Hunger Games, Johnny Depp, Adam Sandler, The Rock, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry bring in the blimp and some slime and stuff.  Whatever...Read More


JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE'S SALES INCREASE...AND INCREASE

Originally pinned at half a million in sales 2 weeks ago.  That number increased to 750k once it was released and then increased again to 800k, then 850k, then 900k and now experts are saying that his album will likely sell 950-975k, with a small chance of becoming the 19th album ever to sell a million in a single week...Read More


BOX OFFICE REBOUNDS
After a dismal 2013 start that has only 2 major hits to date (Identity Thief & Oz, The Great and Powerful), the box office finally had a dually successful weekend with The Croods nabbing the top spot with $44.7 million and, perhaps more surprising, Olympus Has Fallen raked in a more than respectable $30.5 million to break this long streak of R-Rated action flops this year and, yes, this was all one sentence...Read More


BAY CASTS HIS FIRST NINJA TURTLE

After pissing off fans by announcing that the turtles will now be from space instead of radioactive sewer ooze, and then pissing off everyone by casting his own nemesis Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Michael Bay didn't really incite any emotion as he brought on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's Alan Ritchson on for the role of Raphael.  Hey, no emotion is better than murderous hatred, right?  With 3 more turtles to cast, all we have to say is that we are pretty sure Corey Feldman is still available to voice Donatello again...Read More
