Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of the much-anticipated film version of the erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." The British actor had been announced last month to star opposite Dakota Johnson in the film. Producers released a statement blaming the pull-out on Hunnam's busy TV schedule: he's currently starring in "Sons of Anarchy." As predicted, "Gravity" was again the reigning king at the North American box office. The 3D space thriller took in 44.3 million dollars over the weekend, easily ousting the debut of "Captain Phillips." "Gravity's" global tally now stands at more than 191 million dollars. Mariah Carey fans are in for a treat. The singer has announced that she will release a new single - "The Art of Letting Go" - exclusively on her Facebook page on November 11. Carey has been busy in the studio, working on her next album - no release date for that has been announced yet. Finally, Bon Jovi made a surprise appearance over the weekend at the wedding of a super-fan. Branka Delic had petitioned her idol to attend her Las Vegas wedding - and the singer did, just in time to walk her down the isle. The chapel had particular significance for Bon Jovi - he and his wife were married there in 1989.
