If you were one of the "Mortal Instruments" fans who was devastated by the news that production was halting on "City of Ashes" with no concrete plans to start again, now is the time to dry your little eyes and be joyous: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Constantin Films is back on board with plans to move ahead on the sequel! Yaaaay! Clearly, our campaign of standing outside the homes of the studio's major executives and hysterically sobbing whilst clutching a life-sized stuffed Jace Wayland doll has paid off in a big way.
Per the report, Constantin will relaunch production on the second film in the series next year, while using the last few months of 2013 to analyze why and how the first movie didn't do as well as they'd hoped. (Among the problems: Apparently, nobody realized that the "Mortal Instruments" fandom isn't entirely under the age of 18—which, as the adult editors of this blog and their life-sized stuffed Jace can attest, is obviously a Thing.)

If you thought you weren’t ready for Halloween, chances are last night’s line-up on ABC Family most definitely put you in the mood! And by that we mean, you’re literally shaking in your seat, checking under your bed for ghosts and trying to convince yourself that you are safe from all supernatural harm!
Night four of the “13 Nights of Halloween” delivered surprises, mystery, cliffhangers and more with the annual “Pretty Little Liars” Halloween special and premiere of “Ravenswood.”
The night began with one of the most game-changing episodes in “Pretty Little Liars” history. So, let’s get right to it: Alison DiLaurentis is alive!
It's early days for the People's Choice Awards nomination process—in fact, the announcement that noms are now open has so stirred the passions of the choosy people that, as of this writing, the site is too overloaded to actually function at all—but with so much on the line, it's vital that everyone get clicking to ensure that one of our most favorite young Hollywood gents takes his rightful place atop the ballot.
And by that, we mean that Channing Tatum is up for Favorite Movie Actor, which means the other nine dudes currently in that category (whoever they are, we didn't even bother to look) are inferior little trolls who must be defeated, and probably punished for their insolence, too.
Do you hear that sound? That sound like a million screaming lunatics? A million screaming lunatics who have come together as one spittle-flecked mass to howl "OH MY FREAKING GAWD IT'S 'ALLEGIANT' DAY"?! Because that is what is happening, y'all: As of today, October 22, the third and final book in the "Divergent" trilogy is on shelves. And because we cannot encapsulate our near-psychotic excitement in words, we're relying on the ever-trusty, oh-so-emotive face of Theo James—who plays Four in the upcoming film adaptation of Veronica Roth's literary series—to express all the feels we are feeling...
...when our friends are like, "Wait, you can't hang out tonight because you have to go home and read?"
If you squint hard enough, you can just make it out there in the distance: the city limits sign for Ravenswood, Pennsylvania, where Caleb Rivers will begin unraveling a mystery that will pull him away from his life (and love) in Rosewood.
The much-hyped "Pretty Little Liars" spin-off, "Ravenswood," debuts tomorrow on ABC Family, and ahead of episode No. 1, we hopped on the phone with actress Britne Oldford, whose character Remy is among the first to welcome Caleb to the ooky spooky town. Keep reading for all the details on Remy's rocky relations, steamy love life and whether we'll ever see vampires walking the streets of Ravenswood.
The third and final book in the "Divergent" trilogy is officially hitting shelves tomorrow—which means, among other things, that Theo James will finally find out if his character gets killed off and then resurrected as a sexy ghost, as he has so confidently predicted. (Seriously, what is that about? Does he know something we don't?!)
But with millions of fans having fallen in love with the dark, violent, mysterious world of "Divergent," and with this last book promising to reveal the secrets of the fractured society that forms the series' dystopian backbone, Theo's hardly the only one to be theorizing about what awaits Tris and Four in the final installment of the trilogy. And with less than 24 hours to go until we can bury our faces in the pages "Allegiant," now is the time to place your bets about what's gonna happen.
The end of "Insurgent" left us with a lot of questions, and their answers are anything but sure: who, or what, lurks in the no-man's-land beyond the ruins of Chicago? How will the war between the factions and Factionless ever be resolved? Will Tris' recklessness spell her undoing? Will Four's past come back to haunt him once again? Will Tris and Four finally consummate their love in true Dauntless fashion, preferably in a naked tryst atop the dilapidated Ferris wheel?
Lucy Hale might be trying to solve several soon-to-be-unraveled mysteries on "Pretty Little Liars," but she's also hoping to dominate the charts in the real world in the very near future. The actress is prepping the release of her long-simmering country album. That is once she wraps up filming the newest batch of episodes for her ABC Family series.
"It's done; it's been done for a while. I just have to wait until the show's done for me to promote it," she revealed to Hollywood Crush about the status of the release. "The show wraps November 1 and I leave November 2 for a radio tour to promote the single."
And, for those wondering just how country her album will sound, the Memphis native admits that her album is pretty twangy. "Yeah, it's pretty country! I mean if you guys [at MTV] want to play it, I'm not gonna be mad," she joked. "But, no, it's pretty straight country, which is where my heart is, my heart lies."

Okay, guys. Remember how excited I was after watching big mythology/origin-reveal episodes, like “Klaus” and “Ordinary People”? Well, seeing “Original Sin” was like that, times 1,000.
Lest you think I’m exaggerating (I’m not. An excerpt from my notes actually reads: “THIS IS THE EPISODE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR ALL MY LIFE”), let’s get this party started.

It wouldn't be scary-movie season without taking in the classic, sordid tale of an outcast teen with powerful telekinetic abilities who gets pushed too far by her merciless classmates.
And this year, Stephen King's horror classic "Carrie" gets drenched in pig's blood once more. A remake hits theaters this week—a brand-new scare brought to you in hi-def by Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer and "Boys Don't Cry" director Kimberly Peirce.
So put on your cutest prom dress, grab a handful of sanitary napkins and do these five things before catching this frightening flick.
Mark it on your calendars! "Girls" will be coming back this January!
Show creator Lena Dunham revealed the news on Instagram, sharing that the HBO comedy's season three premiere date has been scheduled for January 12. She added, "We're comin' right back #GIRLS."
The show will be back, with a notable cast shakeup. Christopher Abbott, who played Marnie's love interest, left the series earlier this year. But, a slew of other actors have been cast to fill the void, including "Orange Is The New Black" actress Danielle Brooks, rock goddess/Sonic Youth bassist Kim Gordon, "Zero Hour" actor Amir Arison, "90210" actress Natalie Morales and "Boardwalk Empire" actor Michael Zegen, among others. Little is known about what roles they will play.
