This week: Will "Battleship" sink or swim on DVD and Blu-ray? The mega-budget summer flop about a naval fleet fighting off alien invaders had a reported budget of about $209 million but had to rely on the foreign box office to keep it afloat.
Rihanna has a new man in her life, and, no, it's not Chris Brown ... or Drake. (Insert shocked gasps here.) Word around Tinseltown is that the songstress-turned-actress will join Jim Parsons, of "The Big Bang Theory" fame, to star in DreamWorks Animation's "Happy Smekday!"
While neither one of their gorgeous mugs will actually appear on-screen since it's animated and all, we have a feeling they'll be a true dream team. Get More »
In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
That's right, we're bringing out the big guns, in more ways than one, as these scorching hot ladies show us a thing or two about proper marksmanship.
After proving he could do superheroes with "Hancock," director Peter Berg is getting all Michael Bay on us with a big ol' summer alien invasion disaster movie, based on a board game, called "Battleship."
Taylor Kitsch plays Lieutenant Alex Hopper, a U.S. Navy tactical action officer aboard the USS John Paul Jones, under the stern command of Admiral Shane (Liam Neeson). When their naval exercises uncover some hostile extraterrestrial forces, it'll take all the firepower they've got to sink those E.T.s but good.
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 »
Just hours after rocking the red carpet at the Met Gala in a sexy Tom Ford crocodile-style leather dress, Rihanna tweeted a photo of her arm hooked up to an IV for fluids from what looked like a hospital bed.
Busy doesn't begin to describe Rihanna's schedule lately, with premieres all over the world for the upcoming movie "Battleship," press appearances for the U.S. release of "Battleship" next week, a performance on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend and a glamorous night at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday. Whew! Get More »
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.

If you can't wait a second longer for your first viewing of "The Hunger Games" and you happen to be a fan of Rihanna, this viral video is very much in your favor.
Some superfan romantic from Twentyfirstrecords put together this mashup of "Hunger Games" footage and "We Found Love" called — wait for it — "We Found Love in the Hunger Games."
Enjoy - but save your sentimental tears for the movie. You'll need them. Get More »
February is Black History Month, and right now two African-American actors are Oscars front-runners (we're talking about you, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer). Plus, the talented and beautiful Adepero Oduye and Paula Patton were included in Vanity Fair's annual Young Hollywood issue -- which is usually all white.
In keeping with the props bestowed upon Hollywood's black performers this month, we present 13 black actors (and a bonus couple of pop stars transitioning to film) whose names you should memorize now, because we're predicting big things, juicy roles and long careers for all of them. Get More »
