J.J. Abrams: Sorry about 'Undercovers'

J.J. Abrams has had a pretty successful career so far.

"Alias" launched the career of Jennifer Garner, "Lost" was a phenomenon, "Fringe" has beaten the odds, getting picked-up for a fourth season, and his take on "Star Trek" was a massive hit in theaters. Not to mention that "Super 8" is currently the No. 1 movie in America.

But there will always be that one show that didn't work out. "Undercovers" was canceled by NBC last fall after airing seven episodes (four more have aired since).

Christina Aguilera: Neither of us were 'angels'

Christina  Aguilera addresses the rumors about whether she and/or her now ex-husband strayed during the marriage – sort of.

“At one time or another, we were both not angels," the singer told W. " It got to a point where my life at home was reminding me of my own childhood.  I will not have my son grow up in a tension-filled home...”

"The Voice" coach has a spread in the new issue of  W where she she says she has never watched an entire episode of the show's major competitor "American Idol" because "it's too mean." FULL POST

Getting to know the 'SYTYCD' top 20

This year's top 20 on "So You Think You Can Dance" are a highly-talented bunch, no doubt about it. Definitely one of the better groups we've seen.

But by luck of the draw (literally), we didn't get to see too many of them go outside of their own styles on Wednesday night's first real performance show. I suppose if this is going to happen, it's best that it happen early on.

Let's take a look at how each couple did, shall we?

'Jurassic Park 4' in the works?

Dinosaurs have been extinct since 2001, when “Jurassic Park III” failed to reach the bar set by its predecessors. But now, Steven Spielberg is thinking about bringing the vertebrates back to life with a fourth installment of the pre-historic franchise, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

Spielberg has allegedly been talking with Mark Protosevich, who wrote 2006’s “Poseidon,” about bringing “Jurassic Park” back to the big screen. However, according to THR, Universal Pictures says nobody has been attached to the project as of yet, and that it’s still just an idea at this point.

The first film of the trilogy grossed more than $900 million worldwide, while the second, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” raked in more than $615 million. “Jurassic Park III,” with an estimated budget of $90 million, earned just over $360 million worldwide.

Does a “Jurassic Park” reboot have a chance of succeeding after a 10-plus-year hiatus? Sound off below!
