Ronnie James Dio's widow is urging the surviving members of his band Heaven & Hell to continue working together - under a different name. Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer in May, and his bandmates, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice, subsequently re-grouped for a tribute show in London in July.

The concert was billed as Heaven & Hell's final performance, but Wendy Dio hopes the rockers will continue to work together as long as they pick a different band name. She tells VH1 Radio, "I don't know what they're doing right now. I know that Geezer's been asked several times, and he's just... he took it (Dio's death) very hard. I don't really know what they're doing right now."

'Tangled' Is Impressive on Early Thanksgiving, but 'Deathly Hallows' Still Wins

November 26, 2010 04:05:11 GMT


As anticipated before, a lot of people storm theaters across the nation during Thanksgiving holiday. And on November 24, "Tangled" kicked off the festive weekend with an impressive opening. The family animation, which retells classic tale "Rapunzel", scored $11.8 million which is more than expected, The Hollywood Reporter says.

However, the pleasing achievement by Disney's movie could not overshadow the magic of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I". The first part of the seventh movie installment from "Harry Potter" franchise, which was debuted last week, is still the most attractive for moviegoers as it tops box office on Wednesday with an additional $14.5 million tally, bringing its six-day cume to $159 million.

Dark Superhero-Wannabe Comedy 'Super' Gets Release Date

November 26, 2010 02:31:25 GMT


The 2010 Holiday season has just started but IFC Films has set their agenda for 2011. The studio announces on November 25 that they will release "Super" in limited theaters in the U.S. on April 1 next year, or what people know as April Fool's Day.

Also occupying the same slot is Universal Pictures' comedy "Hop". Despite the same release date, the Russell Brand-starring movie and "Super" likely won't create a strong competition since they have different targeted audience. The former is more children friendly while the latter is aimed to attract older moviegoers.
