The long awaited and much-hyped "Liz & Dick," starring Lohan as Dame Taylor and Grant Bowler as her fiery counterpart, Richard Burton, will debut on Lifetime next Sunday, November 25.

After five years, hundreds of millions of dollars, and really passionate fans, the end is here.

Friday's release of “Breaking Dawn — Part 2” marks the conclusion (for the moment, at least) of “The Twilight Saga."

In the film, newlyweds Edward and Bella raise a rather unique child and fight an army of Italian vampires, which sounds terribly stressful, but it's likely nothing compared to what diehard fans are going through.

Some fans might consider blocking out the whole night for a “Twilight” marathon. Select theaters nationwide will be screening the entire series on Thursday prior to "Part 2's" midnight release.

Sam Mendes' "Skyfall" has already taken over the international box office, thus far having earned $287 million globally and setting high expectations for its U.S. open this Friday.

If early reviews are any indication, James Bond fans and franchise newbies alike are in for a spectacular ride. The Hollywood Reporter calls "Skyfall" a "beautifully made film ... [that] leaves you wanting the next one to turn up sooner than four years from now."

Entertainment Weekly gave the film an "A" grade, praising it as a "freshly oxygenated entry" in the 50-year-old Bond film series, and a "great, long-lasting jolt of pleasure."

Well, we already know that we should expect at least one of Tom Hanks' characters in "Cloud Atlas" to swear, since he accidentally dropped the F-bomb while in character on "Good Morning America" Friday.

But he's not starring in all the roles - "Cloud Atlas," adapted from David Mitchell's acclaimed novel, also stars Halle Berry, Hugh Grant and Hugo Weaving. See how well the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer pulled off their adaptation of Mitchell's intertwining stories when it arrives in theaters Friday.
