    Daniel Craig's James Bond "Not So Brokenhearted" In 'Skyfall,' Actor Says Sam Mendes Is A Huge 007 Fan

    Weekend B.O. (April 13-15)

    The Stooges couldn't do it. The Cabin in the Woods couldn't do it. They couldn't knock The Hunger Games from its No. 1 position the fourth week in a row. Though, as I did last week, I still predict that Think Like A Man, when it comes out this next weekend, will do it. Any takers?

    Ridley Scott Says Theatrical Version Of 'Prometheus' Will Be His Director's Cut, Will Run About 2 Hours

    So what do we know about "Prometheus" so far? Well, only as much as Ridley Scott and the cast are willing or able to tell us at this point. We do know that it's about the search for the origin of mankind and our creators -- and things go very, very wrong -- but just what the scope will...

    Steven Spielberg's Latest: Laser Cats 7 (SNL Video)

    Steven Spielberg played himself in an SNL Digital Short last night, as the ostensible director of the latest installment of Laser Cats  -- the low-tech, sci-fi series with Andy Samberg and Bill Hader, a perfect franchise for a guy obsessed with space aliens. Although the Spielberg alter eg...
