Funnyman Jonah Hill disappointed thousands of fans on Monday night after failing to show up for his planned hosting gig on wrestling show WWE Raw.

At the time WENN went to press, a reason for Hill's no-show was not immediately made clear.

Paranormal Activity 3
The second "Paranormal Activity" sequel has scared up big audiences in America, grossing a staggering $54 million in its opening weekend.

The critically-acclaimed horror film has ended "Real Steel's" two-week run at the top of the U.S. box office.

Other new releases fared poorly - director Paul W.S. Anderson's "The Three Musketeers" revamp and Rowan Atkinson's "Johnny English Reborn" were big flops.

The Three Musketeers grossed a disappointing $8.8 million and comedy "Johnny English Reborn" made only $3.8 million at the box office.

Hugh Jackman was drenched with water on TV on Thursday night as he played a card game with Jimmy Fallon.

The X-Men Origins: Wolverine star sat down for a chat on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and the pair played classic card game War, but changed the rules so the loser was splashed with water at every defeat.

Fallon told Jackman, "We are going to have a water war. Now, it's just like the card game War, but with water. So, if you lose a hand you get splashed in the face. We each have five cups of water. The first one to use all of his cups on the other guy wins and gets to water canon the ...

Review: 'Real Steel' 'Two Jews On Film' Have Split Decision On This Action Fantasy (Video)

October 6th, 2011 7:00pm EDT
Real Steel
Two Jews on Film: By Joan Alperin Schwartz - The year is 2020. Things look pretty much the same as they do now... Except in the world of boxing. Humans have evolved to the point where they no longer get excited by watching men and women pummel each other. Score one for us.

What we have instead is 'Robot Boxing' which I have to say is...really, really cool...especially the way it's depicted in this new fantasy, action film, called 'Real Steel' directed by Shawn Levy.

First of all, these 'robot boxers' aren't your everyday garden variety robots. These animatronic, mechanical men are ov...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Real Steel,' 'The Ides Of March,' & More

October 3rd, 2011 11:00am EDT

If you haven’t had the opportunity to read my Seth Rogen interview from last week for “50/50,” you should definitely check it out.

The film itself is one of the best this year; definitely worth watching. It impressively handles a dark subject like cancer by making light of it with humor. To label “50/50” as a straight comedy though is disrespectful to what a poignant story it is, because it also remains sensitive to immense difficulty of coping with such a serious disease.

In this way, Seth Rogen’s sarcastic jokes are well balanced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s uptight, neurotic character...

Hugh Jackman talked to Men's Fitness for their October issue, and he revealed that he isn't the gym rat he appears to be.

Hugh also says as he gets older, the training because that much tougher. "Over the past three or four years it's gotten a lot tougher. I have to eat a stricter diet. I have to train even harder. I can't get away with what I used to."
