Shia Labeouf's "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" has destroyed the competition at the box office, grossing $97.4 million to score the biggest opening weekend of the year so far.

Larry Crowne
By Joan Alperin Schwartz: Once upon a time, a Hollywood actor named Tom Hanks decided to write a film about a middle aged average guy who loses his job, goes to college, makes some new friends, joins a motor scooter gang, gets a makeover, and has his house foreclosed on...and...in case I forgot to mention... He meets an alcholic college Professor who looks very much like Julia Roberts. They of course fall in love and live happily ever after.

Don't worry...I'm not spoiling anything. You know that's going to happen the minute Tom walks into Julia's class.

Not only did Tom Hanks write t...

Larry Crowne
Julia Roberts opened up about sharing a kissing scene with Tom Hanks in their new movie "Larry Crowne."

She explained, "I brushed my teeth twice before we went at it. It really wasn't that romantic because it was the first thing we shot that day, so there we were mashing at 8 a.m.

Because he was the director, at the end of the scene while our lips were pressed together, he said out of the corner of his mouth, 'OK, cut!'"

Actor Wilmer Valderrama was pulled over by cops and handed a ticket for speeding on Monday, just hours before he walked the red carpet at the Larry Crowne premiere.

The star was driving around Los Angeles with a pal when an officer signalled for him to pull his vehicle over - and handed the actor a ticket for going above the legal limit.

According to TMZ.com, the ticket cost Valderrama over $300, but that didn't stop him from turning on the charm alongside Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts at the Hollywood screening.

Selita Ebanks Outshines Julia Roberts In A Hot Pink Mini Dress At 'Larry Crowne' Premiere

Selita Ebanks
Even with A-list actresses like Julia Roberts in attendance, Selita Ebanks was the showstopper at the "Larry Crowne" Los Angeles premiere yesterday.

The Victoria's Secret model, 28, wore a cleavage-baring hot pink mini dress embellished with metallic sequins. She paired her look with leopard-print pumps.

We love Julia, but why does she have to dress so conservatively all the time? She's still gorgeous at 43. Show it off! (See her picture in a black suit below.)

Selita recently starred in an episode of "Hawaii Five-O" and appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice" in 2010.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon,' 'Larry Crowne,' & More

June 27th, 2011 10:45am EDT
Transformers
Last week I saw the Cameron Diaz comedy “Bad Teacher,” which was just about as disappointing as “Green Lantern.” In many ways the film tries to mimic “Bad Santa” and go for outrageous laughs, but the writers force these ridiculous moments and don’t really give their protagonist any redeeming qualities in the end. For more of my thoughts, check out the full review.

Hitting the box office this week are the epic Michael Bay outing “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” the Tom Hanks romantic dramedy “Larry Crowne,” the Selena Gomez teenage vacation adventure “Monte Carlo,” the John C. Reilly ind...

Bryan Cranston
Actor Bryan Cranston can boast about sharing a bed with Julia Roberts - even if the actress was fully clothed and he was cold and naked under the sheets.

The former Malcolm in the Middle actor co-stars with Roberts in Tom Hanks' new movie Larry Crowne, and admits he loved playing the Oscar winner's husband.

However, there was one bedroom scene he'll always remember.

Cranston tells Eonline.com, "She's giggling and I am completely naked. She is completely in sweats (under the blanket), but I'm naked underneath because I have to make an exit and you see that he has nothing on."

"She sa...
