Born on a military base in Fort Carson, Colo., singer-songwriter Michael Grimm has paid his dues to get where he is today. But despite winning season 5 of America’s Got Talent in 2010, which earned him $1 million and contract with Epic Records, the soon to be 32-year-old Grimm still says he has much to prove.

Before entering the show, Grimm had released three independent albums from 2007-10 and America’s Got Talent was his big chance.

Starring: Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough

Director: Craig Brewer

Rated: PG-13

Reanimating humans is a rather ambitious task. Consider all that could go askew. But then consider the brilliancy of success. What if?

Re-imagining horror and making it comical seems a bit risky, too. But regard the theatrical inventiveness of Mel Brooks.
