    5 Summer Box-Office Head-To-Head Showdowns That Could Leave Blood On The Floor

    This past weekend, two pricey fantasy epics hit movie screens in the form of Warner Bros.' swords-and-sandal sequel "Wrath Of The Titans" and Relativity's comic fairy tale "Mirror Mirror."

    New 'Dictator' Trailer Reveals Plot Twist, Republic of Wadiyan R.E.M. Cover & New Portrait Photos With Beloved World Leaders

    'The Office' Star B.J. Novak Joins Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator'

    Over the seven seasons of "The Office" no character has gone through as many transitions as Ryan Howard, played by the show's co-executive producer, writer and actor B.J. Novak.

But Ryan once again changed into an annoying, Americana loving, hipster douchebag who is also the founder of WUHPF. And ...
