LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu.
We all know that the Star Trek mission is “to explore strange new worlds” and “seek out new life and new civilizations,” so it’s only logical that the Starship Enterprise would eventually end up at the Arizona State Fair. Nestled amongst the “Bacon A-Fair” food stands and “Tilt-A-Whirl” thrill rides, “Star Trek: The Exhibition” has landed.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sandra Bullock says making the lost-in-space movie "Gravity" with director Alfonso Cuaron was "the best life decision I think I ever made."
Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.
"Daring" isn't a word you would use very much to describe 2011's "The Hangover Part II," the disappointingly lazy, beat-for-beat rehash of the wild and wildly successful original "Hangover" from 2009.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" is like fan-boy fiction on a $185 million budget. It's reverential, it's faithful, it's steeped in "Trek" mythology.
This undated publicity film image released by Paramount Pictures shows Chris Pine as Kirk, Zoe Saldana as Uhura and Zachary Quinto as Spock in a scene from the movie, "Star Trek Into Darkness," from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.
It's not really news that Arnold Schwarzenegger is back this year. Everybody else in Hollywood is, too, so why not the former California governor?
You may not recognize her name, but you’ve probably heard Lea Salonga many times before. After all, she is the singing voice of Disney Princesses Jasmine in “Aladdin” and Fa Mulan in “Mulan.”
He might as well have said, “Ahead, warp factor one, Mister Sulu,” so familiar was the voice at the other end of the line. Instead, it was, “Hello, this is Bill Shatner,” a friendly greeting from “Star Trek’s” once and always Capt. James T. Kirk.

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen Nov. 14's episode of "American Horror Story" and want to be surprised, read no further.
When a trusting young mother asks me for parenting advice I’m simultaneously flattered and terrified because while it is a compliment, it’s a lot of pressure. I didn’t Ferberize, or do “attachment,” or read Dr. Spock. I let the kids watch as much “Star Trek” as they liked, but I’m not sure that counts, so I don’t feel particularly qualified to be handing out advice.
It’s an absolute marvel how Ben Affleck has managed to turn his career around in recent years. After being the laughingstock of the film community for a while, Affleck reestablished himself as a great talent through his directorial outings in “Gone Baby, Gone” and “The Town.” In “Argo,” Affleck not only proves that he’s a gifted filmmaker, but one of the most intelligent creative minds of this generation.
"There is an inherent evil to the wondrous technology that we embrace blindly," says J.J. Abrams. It's a loaded observation that seems simultaneously quizzical, thrilled and circumspect. And it hints at the world view of Abrams, the alliteratively initialed writer-director-producer whose latest series, "Revolution," airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EDT on NBC.
NEW YORK — Jennifer Lopez was part of the all-star cast that helped lead "Ice Age: Continental Drift" to the top of the box office over the weekend, and the entertainer is eager to focus even more attention on her once white-hot movie career.
"People Like Us" is that increasingly rare kind of film: an adult drama. The filmmakers seem so nervous about this prospect that they fill the movie with action-film editing and a camera that moves so restlessly through domestic life that you'd think it lost its keys.
NEW YORK — On a weekend in January of 2010, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios pivoted faster than even Spider-Man would dare.
LOS ANGELES — Chris Pine is boldly going where Capt. Kirk has never gone before. In his sibling drama "People Like Us," he gets slapped around by his mom and pummeled by his sister.
This June 15, 2012 photo shows writer-director Alex Kurtzman, left, actor Chris Pine, center, and writer-producer Roberto Orci from the film "People Like Us", posing for a portrait in Beverly Hills, Calif. The earthbound sibling drama “People Like Us,” is light-years from Pine's role as forceful ladies man Kirk in “Star Trek. And it's a departure for director Kurtzman and producer Orci, who moonlighted on the intimate screenplay for nearly eight years as they co-wrote such action epics as “Star Trek” the first two “Transformers” flicks, “Mission: Impossible III” and “Cowboys & Aliens.”
The sequel "Piranha 3DD" came out but it wasn't shown to critics before opening day — which is a bummer, because the original "Piranha 3D" from 2010 was just a shamelessly gimmicky blast.
Astonishingly beautiful and breathtaking in its brutal imagery, "Snow White & the Huntsman" is thrilling and frightening in equal measure, yet as bereft of satisfying substance as a poisoned apple.
As superhero summers go, this one is truly super.
