With two movies out this weekend, Brooklyn Decker's heat index is rising fast. And that's really saying something.
The 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl first impressed movie-going audiences with her earnest and comedic turn — not to mention that unforgettable yellow bikini — in "Just Go With It." Now she's giving birth to twins with Dennis Quaid in "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and cozying up to Taylor Kitsch before he rids the world of robot aliens in "Battleship."
Not too shabby. But Brooklyn is more than just eye candy. Flip through this Hot People Looking Hot gallery and you'll see she's got quite the sense of humor, a caring heart (she loves animals!) and an awesome, strangely approachable vibe.
Rihanna is already an international superstar as a musician, but this month marks her official transition from singer to actor, with her debut role in the board game-based summer release "Battleship" (May 18). The Caribbean hitmaker follows in the footsteps of such multi-hyphenate talents as Jennifer Hudson, Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé, but Rihanna's acting-career potential will potentially sink or swim with the fate of the $200 million blockbuster.
We're willing to bet most of her fans (us included) will want to see the "Umbrella" singer kick some alien butt from a state-of-the-art "Battleship." Get More »
This is one giveaway that doesn't sink. And, no, that wasn't a typo.
In honor of "Battleship" hitting theaters on May 18, we're breaking out the big guns and delivering a prize pack even this absurdly good-looking cast would swoon over.
The movie, inspired by the Hasbro board game, stars Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Rihanna and Alexander Skarsgard as Navy fleet officers battling alien invaders at sea. The fate of the whole world depends at them.
Adding a little extra eye candy is Brooklyn Decker, the love interest of one of the aforementioned gents left to worry about her man.
The movie may look like "Transformers" meets the Pacific Ocean, but since when is that a bad thing? Get More »
"You sunk my Battleship!"
Whether that classic exclamation is going to take on a more poignant context after "Battleship" attempts to stake its claim in the summer movie market remains to be seen, but for now, the valiant men and women involved in Universal's big-budget adaptation of the Milton Bradley game showed nothing but Navy pride at the Hollywood premiere.
Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and many more were on board (game) to celebrate the first official American screening of the sci-fi action film in which the world wages war with an alien race at sea (rather than in New York City, which usually takes the hardest beating in situations like that).
Check out our collection of photos from the premiere, and climb aboard "Battleship" when it sets sail in theaters on May 18.
Summer movies season is all about the blockbusters -- action movies with fist fights and guns blaring. Ch-ching!
But blockbusters aren't the only kind of movies at the multiplex this summer; they share space alongside quieter, more critically acclaimed fare. And let's face it, inside every loud, attention-grabbing, big-budget action movie, there's also a sensitive indie just wanting to get out. Right?
That's how we like to think of it, anyway. With our friend Old Red Jalopy, we've put a spin on 10 summer blockbusters to picture them as smaller, less explosion-heavy films instead. After all, it's not such a huge leap to see "The Avengers" as a moodily dysfunctional family, or Sylvester Stallone as an aging soldier contemplating the limits of his own mortality (with or without guns).

There are a lot of things to avoid this summer: blistering sun, bug spray, sweating, sunburns, broken air conditioning, puka shell necklaces. Thankfully, heaven can be found indoors, in a movie theater, with functional air conditioning, popcorn and 90+ minutes of pure cinematic bliss.
This summer Hollywood is giving us a lot of "popcorn flicks" to look forward to: a "Spider-Man" reboot, "Men in Black III," a second "G.I. Joe" movie and "Battleship," to name a few. Among all of these big movies are 15 up-and-coming stars who will be heating up the summer. Some of these are people you've seen on TV, and some you've heard on the radio. All of them are quickly on the rise to silver-screen stardom.
Summer isn't just the season for blockbusters. It's also the time of beefcakes. Oh sure, good-looking men abound in movies all year, but there's something about the hottest months that really brings them out, takes off their shirts, and makes them run, leap, and roll in slow motion.
This year seems especially easy on the eyes. We have the usual slate of superheroes (all of whom look fantastic in their capes and codpieces), soldiers and assassins, but with the extra spice of an android, a vampire, a medieval warrior, and a whole stable of male strippers. Any one of those is enough to make the season, but the combination is enough to make you glad theaters are air conditioned.
For now, here's a preview of summer's sexiest men to keep you feeling the heat until May and beyond.
What would a blockbuster be without a damsel in distress to save, or a femme fatale to fight? A whole lot less fabulous, that's what.
Throughout the world, the summer movies season is synonymous with chiseled male champions braving larger-than-life adventures. But judging by the crop of broad comedies and action extravaganzas being offered up in the coming months, it looks like the ladies may give their A-list counterparts of the opposite sex a run for their money.
Have a look at 20 starlets who are going to steal the cinematic spotlight.
'Tis the season for massive explosions and people running from them.
Summer movies are coming, and iconic superheroes will dominate as "Dark Knight Rises," "Avengers," and "The Amazing Spider-Man" duke it out for box office supremacy, while the sci-fi derby includes fresh takes on the "Alien" saga ("Prometheus") and Philip K. Dick ("Total Recall"), plus a return visit to MIB headquarters.
