Comic-Con isn’t even underway yet, but it’s already making news, and in the worst possible way: Tuesday, a woman was struck by a car and killed in San Diego while waiting in line to see some of her favorite actors from Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate released a joint statement today:
“Lionsgate, Summit and the entire Twilight community are saddened by the death of a Comic-Con fan today due to a traffic accident leading up to this year’s convention in San Diego. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends.”

George Zimmerman’s bail has been revoked after a judge said he misled the court about his finances. Trayvon Martin’s killer must turn himself in by Sunday.
During Zimmerman’s bail hearing in April, after which he was freed on $150,000 bond, his family testified they had limited funds, prosecutors said on Friday.
Zimmerman’s wife “said she had no money, but in fact she did,” said prosecutor Bernardo de la Rionda of the issue that led to Zimmerman’s bail revocation.
“It was misleading … I don’t know what other words to use. It was a blatant lie.”
He pointed to $135,000 in funds raised fromMore >
Alan Scott, a.k.a. the Green Lantern, is officially coming out of the closet.
The DC Comics staple, who was first introduced in 1940 as a husband and father, is a homosexual in Earth 2′s new comic, being released next week.
The comic-book giant approved author James Robinson’s character-altering decision “without hesitation.” Here’s GL making out with his boyfriend:
“He’s very much the character he was,” James tells the New York Post of the change. “He’s still the pinnacle of bravery and idealism. He’s also gay.”
Interestingly enough, Alan’s son Obsidian was gay, but the rebooting of AlanMore >

Charlie Sheen has been on a booze-and-drug-fueled bender since he wrapped Anger Management last month, a source close to the warlock said.
The 46-year-old is again partying with “a gaggle of adult film stars” – and for a time, ex-wife Brooke Mueller – at his Mulholland Estates mansion.
Mueller is back in rehab. So out-of-control is Charlie now that some of his closest confidantes have begged him to join her there to treat his addictions.
Not surprisingly, he dismisses that idea.
“Yes, Charlie is partying,” a source says. “He doesn’t want to stop. In hisMore >
Celebrity Apprentice star and beauty queen Dayana Mendoza is firing back at co-star Lisa Lampanelli for a racial insult she allegedly used during a radio interview.
It all went down last month when Lampanelli appeared on Sirius XM, saying:
“I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a sp*c! She’s going to do it f**king soon, anyway. She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”
Lampanelli is no stranger to using that slur in particular. Here’s a portion of a routine she did a few years back in which she says that and much worse:More >
Blake Lively (or a Blake Lively doppelganger, depending on who you believe) recently starred in a nude photo scandal. That was rather eye-opening.
Fortunately for the actress, all eyes will be on her in a different capacity this weekend when the blockbuster film Green Lantern arrives in theaters.
In an interview with In Style, Blake discussed her role in the comic book adaptation and the films she has taken on aside from TV’s Gossip Girl …
On her character, Carol: “[She's a] really appealing character in this film, and it’s rare because you never see a female get to also be theMore >
A mint condition copy of the first-ever comic book to feature Spider-Man has fetched $1.1 million at auction. The first appearance of spidey came in 1962′s Amazing Fantasy #15 which was written by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

[HMG Celebrity News] – Charlie Sheen’s life is unwinding in the media like the worst B-movie you ever saw. But he’s not the first star whose career faced a cliff-edge due to drugs. 90′s sit-com star Brett Butler has been there herself.
In 1993 her skills at stand-up won Brett a chance in the spotlight with her own show – ‘Grace Under Fire.’ The show became popular…Then came the pills. Prescription painkillers in this case. Soon, her behavior became so unstable the producers canceled the show, so she knows what Charlie is facing.

Teen Mom has plenty of critics. Rosie O’Donnell? Not one of them.
At the Sundance Film Fest in Park City, Utah, the mom of four said that she and her teenage daughter recently checked out the controversial MTV hit.
“I have to say it’s interesting,” O’Donnell said, explaining a personal reason for tuning in. “My daughter is 13. I watch with her. I think the fantasy for adopted children is to have a baby of their own, then keep it, which their mother did not.”
