The trailer for DreamWorks Animation's 'Home' is an odd one, showcasing a genuinely interesting science-fiction premise but filling the margins with screaming, fart jokes and lame pop-culture references. The 'How to Train Your Dragon' films have bought a lot of goodwill for the studio, but between this new effort and 'The Penguins of Madagascar,' they're pushing it.

Did anyone else catch last night's "Chris Brown and Rihanna"-themed 'Law & Order: SVU'? NBC's hit crime drama has tackled many issues, often based on real-world controversies -- one example that comes to mind was that Jerry Sandusky-themed episode at the beginning of season 13. And last night, they continued this theme with the episode titled "Funny Valentine," which mirrored Rihanna's past abuse by Chris Brown, and our question is, did series creator Dick Wolf finally take things too far with the depiction or was it a hefty sized pill we all needed to swallow?
You can watch the entire Chris Brown/Rihanna 'Law & Order: SVU' below and read our thoughts on last night's episode.

As expected, last weekend's 'SNL' featuring Louis C.K. offered up an even mix of laughs and groans, some sketches falling flat while others stood as tall as Abraham Lincoln's stovepipe hat.  This weekend's newest outing will go back to basics however, as 'Les Miserables' star and Hollywood sweetheart Anne Hathaway picks up hosting duties for the third time, with musical guest Rihanna.  So what's the one thing Anne Hathaway has that Louis C.K. doesn't, as highlighted by the new promos?  Sexy, sexy hair.

When Rihanna decided to branch off from her music career and hit up the big screen, most (if not all) of us were a little ambivalent. Sure, Jennifer Hudson ('Dream Girls'), Whitney Houston ('The Bodyguard') and Justin Timberlake ('The Social Network') have pretty successfully done it, but Britney Spears ('Crossroads') and Mariah Carey ('Glitter') have tried and failed. Then 'Battleship' came out and Rihanna fell into the latter group.
But it doesn't look like we've seen the end of her acting as reports are coming out that she's setting her sights on something a bit bigger than a board game movie adaptation. She's apparently looking to score a role in the 'Scarface' remake.

Think you have what it takes to be the star of a major summer blockbuster? Repeat after me. "I don’t know." "Weird, man." "What?" "Yo, hey!" Now you too can be on your way to blockbuster stardom!
These are just a few of the lines pop superstar Rihanna had to recite for her role in ‘Battleship,’ Universal’s board-game-to-big-screen blockbuster that, well...let’s just say underperformed at the box office in its opening weekend.

Director Peter Berg was doing research on the Navy for 'Battleship' when he spotted a beautiful, young female officer playing football - and holding her own - with the men. She was wearing t-shirt from the punk band The Hoods and Berg starting taking shots with his camera, thinking her look would be perfect for the female character in the film, Raikes.
Later, Berg would track down the officer - Jackie Carrizosa, a Gunner's Mate - via email and formally invite her to work with star Rihanna as a Military Tech, Weapons Officer Expert. Did we mention she's beautiful?
