    Bale Says Sorry on KROQ

    PR 101 dictates that when you mess up bigtime, you apologize, in the most public forum possible. So Christian Bale called Friday morning to give an interview to L.A.'s genial drive-time duo Kevin and Bean on KROQ-FM, so that he could explain his profane outburst on the set of Terminator Salvation ba...

    Holiday Boxoffice: Four Christmases, Twilight, Australia

    For once, women are dominating movie theaters. That's because there's more than enough for them to see. (OK, they're not going to see Transporter 3.) Usually, though, they're starved and I hope Hollywood takes the lessons of 2008 to heart, from Sex and the City and Mamma Mia! to Twilight and Austral...

    Brit actor Robert Pattinson's life changed the instant Catherine Hardwicke cast him as Edward Cullen, the vampire lover in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series."How old are you?" asks Bella (Kristen Stewart), a new student at Forks High.

    Quantum of Solace: Smart Bond

    I confess that I had a great time at Quantum of Solace last night. Sure it's glitzy and glam and jammed with heart-stopping violent action. But it's also arty and elegant and beautiful. One of the main sequences is a lyrical homage to Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much, set during a perfor...
