Charlize Gets Witchy, Tom Rocks Out, and Batman Makes His Last Stand in the Season's Hottest Films
Snow White and the Huntsman
STARRING: CHARLIZE THERON, KRISTEN STEWART, CHRIS HEMSWORTH
Theron is one mean queen in this dark, action-packed version of the fairy tale. She says the British accent helped her get wicked. As for offscreen mischief: "A true evil queen never reveals her ploys!"
Rock of Ages
STARRING: TOM CRUISE, CATHERINE ZETA-JONES
Shirtless, Scotch-swilling and hilariously strange, Cruise stars as a dissolute '80s rock god in an adaptation of the Broadway hit. And yes, he can sing: "When I first heard him, I screamed," says director Adam Shankman. "I knew we had it."
To Rome With Love
STARRING: Penélope Cruz, ALEC BALDWIN, ELLEN PAGE
Adios, Barcelona. Au revoir, Paris. Wanderlust-stricken director Woody Allen takes on romance in Roma, using his comic eye to muse about fame, travel and a red-hot call girl played by Cruz.
STARRING: MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY, CHANNING TATUM, ALEX PETTYFER
Hollywood's hottest guys as male strippers? You're not dreaming. "I had four signature moves," says McConaughey. "And their names are too vulgar to print!"
VOICES OF: KELLY MACDONALD, EMMA THOMPSON
Watch out, Katniss: Pixar's first star heroine is taking aim in this Scottish adventure. How do the two lasses compare? "Merida is 100 percent the better archer," says director Mark Andrews. Fighting words!
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
VOICES OF: BEN STILLER, JADA PINKETT SMITH
The zoo critters join a traveling circus and cause chaos at the Monte Carlo casino. The best perk of the series? "I have an all-access pass to the Central Park Zoo," says dad-of-two Stiller.
The Amazing Spider-Man
STARRING: ANDREW GARFIELD, EMMA STONE
New Spidey Garfield "can handle the emotional intensity," says director Marc Webb, and his "immediate" chemistry with Stone sparked a real-life romance.
The Dark Knight Rises
STARRING: CHRISTIAN BALE, ANNE HATHAWAY
Bale is back as the brooding crusader, and he's got company: As Catwoman, Hathaway "had to do all the fights and running the guys did," says producer Emma Thomas. "But in heels!"
STARRING: WHITNEY HOUSTON, JORDIN SPARKS
Houston died less than three months after wrapping what was to be her movie comeback. Playing the religious mom of sisters who form a '60s girl group, she belted out gospel and "poured her heart into the performance," says producer pal Debra Martin Chase. "Now we have her legacy in our hands."
STARRING: MERYL STREEP, TOMMY LEE JONES
Streep and Jones try to save their marriage in this comedy. Director David Frankel says sparks flew on-set. "You got the sense Meryl thought Tommy Lee was the Sexiest Man Alive."
The Bourne Legacy
STARRING: JEREMY RENNER, EDWARD NORTON
New spy (bye, Matt Damon), new killer moves. "The big surprise is what an insane athlete Jeremy is," says director Tony Gilroy. "He's a machine."
