This week features a bizarre mix of movies including the religious thriller "Legion," the silly family film "Tooth Fairy," the emotional drama "Extraordinary Measures," and the coming-of- age story "To Save a Life."

Dwayne Johnson
Professional wrestler-turned-action star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is desperate to land a certain macho role - a James Bond villain. The 35-year-old muscle man decided to part ways with World Wrestling Entertainment to pursue a career in Hollywood, winning tough-guy parts in The Mummy Returns and The Game Plan.
