Think Like A Man
In a surprise twist, "Think Like A Man" landed a second week at the top of the box office. In the film, four men realize their significant others have been taking relationship tips from Steve Harvey's best-selling book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man." The men then use the book's teachings to give the ladies a taste of their own medicine.

The comedy stars Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union and Michael Ealy and took home $18 million. It has made over $60 million in 10 days.

"The Five-Year Engagement," starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, was expected to be number one but instead took in a di...

Don't Expect 'Safe' Star Jason Statham To Play Any Serious Roles

Jason Statham
You don't want to mess with the characters Jason Statham plays in many of his films. He was an ex special ops agent in "Killer Elite," a mercenary in "The Expendables" and an outlaw with impressive fighting skills in "The Transporter."

Don't ever expect him to do Shakespeare.

The British actor recently told the BBC, "I don't see myself as a great character actor that will play a lawyer and then something bizarrely different. That's not what my strength is."

We know what his strength is - kicking ass and taking names. He stars in the new film "Safe," hitting theaters today. He plays a su...

Movie Review: 'Safe' (Video)

Safe
First off, I must say that there are some actors that I just enjoy watching ­- doesn't really matter all that much what they do up on the silver screen, I just like them - and Jason Statham is one of them.

Is he a great actor? That's yet to be determined, but he's definitely an entertaining one.

In his new film 'Safe' written and directed by Boaz Yakin ('Remember the Titans') Statham is at the top of his game.

He plays Luke Wright, an ex super cop, ex cage fighter, who's at the lowest point in his life. Luke's wife has been murdered by the Russian mob and he is one step away from jumping...

Jason Statham Says He'll 'Never Be A Great Actor'

April 19th, 2012 4:12pm EDT
Jason Statham
Don't expect Jason Statham to play anything other than action men on the big screen - he insists he isn't suitable for any other role.

The former diver and street jewelry hustler is about to be seen in new high-energy movie Safe, in which his character is embroiled in a deathly battle between the Triads, Russian mobsters and crooked New York cops.

And following roles in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and The Transporter films, Statham insists he is unlikely to stray from his hard man roles - and take on a romance, court thriller or period drama anytime soon.

He tells the ...
