Needless to say, after Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler decided to leave the 'American Idol' judges' table, the show tumbled into chaos. With less than two weeks until open auditions are held in New York City, Mariah Carey is the only name officially attached to the panel and Randy Jackson has stepped down to a mentoring role. All the while reports continue to speculate on who will be joining the team, but with nothing made official yet, there's still a small bit of wiggle room.
It was just the other week that the anti-Obama documentary '2016: Obama's America' made the unexpected jump from relatively unknown flick to box office domination, grossing around $10.6 million since it's theatrical release. Boding well for Mitt Romney supporters, the film, both co-produced and co-directed by former Ronald Reagan policy adviser Dinesh D'Souza, first opened in one single Houston, Texas theater on July 13, and by the coming weekend will have expanded to around 1,800.

And while these two blockbusters were waging box office battles against each other and all the other big screen competitors, Comic-Con 2012 panels in San Diego were unveiling new info on all your favorite movies and shows. But out of everything that happened, which movies, TV shows and news had the biggest impact on your Summer 2012? ScreenCrush wants to know.
'The Dark Knight Rises' theater shooting in Colorado has taken an emotional toll on the country, and none seem more sympathetic to the victims and their families than Warner Bros. Not only have director Christopher Nolan and the 'Dark Knight' cast expressed their condolences, but the production company has taken further steps in consideration of this tragic event at the expense of its upcoming flick 'Gangster Squad.'
It's safe to say that we pretty much all loved Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' movie trilogy, which grossed about $3 billion in worldwide sales during their 2001-2003 releases. Now it looks like Warner Bros. is seeking to achieve the same results with the upcoming 'Hobbit' movie adaptation -- or should we say, adaptations -- as it's looking to become a movie trilogy.
