Hint: it involves giant robots, and it's not "Transformers 2."

Opening in cinemas this week are "Terminator Salvation," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," "Dance Flick," "Easy Virtue," "The Girlfriend Experience," and "The Boys: The Sherman Brothers...

Comedy brothers Shawn, Keenen Ivory and Marlon Wayans are aiming their latest project at kids after creating three cartoon specials called "Thugaboo." The animated shows, which are loosely based on the brothers' youth, will follow the fortunes of nine kids growing up in the inner city.

In 1988, Keenan Iv...
