    It's incredible to think of the ups and down actor Armie Hammer has had. His career was launched in 2010 as the Winklevi twins in David Fincher's "The Social Network," a small but crucial role that earned him just the right amount of attention.

    Box Office: Moviegoers Fall Into 'Oblivion' As Studios Prepare For Start Of Summer

    Tom Cruise could be seen as a leading man in a holding pattern right now. The fans still come out for his films, but maybe the base hasn’t grown despite an impressive box office record carried into the 2000’s. Though it depends where you consider that base should come from. “Oblivion,” his latest, b...

    Tom Cruise went overboard praising Universal execs at the premiere for Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion" (April 19). "I've been doing this a few years now," he told the Dolby Theater crowd.
