"Transformers: Age of Extinction" is being called so bad, it hurts.
Holding off a nice run from "22 Jump Street," the romantic comedy "Think Like a Man Too" took the top spot this weekend with a $30 million opening.

Nine years ago, Frankie Valli was rescued from oldies-station oblivion with the smash Broadway musical "Jersey Boys." The show chronicles the real-life rise-and-fall-and-rise-again of four crooners from the mobbed-up mean streets of 1960s New Jersey who called themselves the Four Seasons and cranked out a seemingly endless string of hit records, including the love ditty ''Sherry,'' the triumphant ''Walk Like a Man,'' and the bouncy bubblegum bop of ''Big Girls Don't Cry.''

Cue the faux-surprise. Female-targeted films "A Fault in Our Stars" and "Maleficent" wiped the floor with the competition, forcing Tom Cruise's more teenage boy-friendly "Edge of Tomorrow" into a third-spot opening.

If a young Robin Wright had gotten her wish, she would've wed Cary Elwes.
Let me put my cards on the table.
"Days of Future Past" promises to fit more X-Men into an "X-Men" movie than any "X-Men" movie ever before. Naturally, the curious moviegoer is led to ask: Could the next "X-Men" movie possibly feature even more X-Men, as we evolve towards the ultimate singularity moment when life will be measured not in time but in unconfirmed "X-Men" casting rumors?
H.R. Giger, the Swiss surrealist artist whose works of sexual-industrial imagery and design of the eponymous creature in the "Alien" movies were known around the world, has died. He was 74.
And we thought Christian Bale's Batman was buff.

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron's frat comedy earned an estimated $51.1 million, making for a global total of $85 million so far.

How many of you have felt victimized by a Regina George?
The threesome of Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton proved to be too much for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
When Cameron Diaz, a type-A corporate attorney ? you know this because she wears power skirts and taps officiously on a laptop in a skybox office the size of a swimming pool ? gets swept off her feet by a dashing businessman ("Game of Thrones'" Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), it all seems too good to be true. Because of course, it is: It turns out he's got a wife in Connecticut (Leslie Mann) and a barely-legal blond (Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton) in the Hamptons.
Joss Whedon fans got a nice surprise Sunday when Whedon revealed that April 20 wasn't just the day his latest film, "In Your Eyes," premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Paddy Chayefsky heard voices.
Divergent was dauntless at the box office this weekend, easily winning the top spot with an estimated $56 million. Meanwhile, the Muppets failed to take multiplexes in Muppets Most Wanted, earning $16.5 million, and the faith-based indie God's Not Dead inspired an awesome $8.6 million from just 780 theaters.
In the posters for "Divergent," Shailene Woodley has been given the stylized bod of a comic-book sci-action vamp, and her features are as coolly chiseled as her physique.

Sony's aggressive expansion of its rebooted "Amazing Spider-Man" franchise began last summer with the announcement of release dates for "Amazing 3" and "4" in 2016 and 2018, respectively ? meaning that the 2010s will be the first decade in human history with one "Spider-Man" movie every two years, so take that, 2000s!

Talk about a "Transformer."
Bruce Wayne would never stand for BatKid getting cut from the Oscars, and the Internet hasn't either.

It's that time again, time to pull out the ballots and read the tea leaves and see who's going to take home the trophies at Sunday's 86th Academy Awards.
