Getting Into Character: Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson in Hitchcock

Jessica Biel as Vera Miles and the real Vera Miles to the right

Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson channel a couple of classic Hollywood starlets in the upcoming biopic of Alfred Hitchcock -- here's a sneak peek at the pair's transformations into the two actresses of Psycho.

"Hitchcock dressed her up in a wig and did everything could to make the beautiful Vera Miles look frumpy. What Hitch tried to do to Vera we tried to do to Jessica, and the results were equally ridiculous. It is not possible to make Jessica Biel dowdy," said Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi.

Jessica Biel: Colin Farrell Has a ‘Kind of Magnetism’

Jessica Biel and Colin FarrellJessica Biel says Colin Farrell has a "kind of magnetism" which attracts people.

The 30-year-old actress loved working with the reformed hellraiser on new sci-fi movie Total Recall, Jessica - who is engaged to Justin Timberlake - believes people are drawn to Colin simply because he is excited about life, rather than because of his partying and womanizing reputation.

"The thing about Colin is he is just so respectful and such a good guy. When you meet him the sparkle is more about having a curiosity of life, excited about the world and excited about what they're doing or traveling, it's that kind of sparkle. It's that kind of magnetism that I feel he puts out there in the world, he's just cool to be around."

Total Recall is in theaters now.

Box Office Breakdown: Wonderful Start for Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

Something tells me we’ll be seeing more collaborations between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton soon.

, the latest project from the famous movie-making team, unfolded to a whopping $116 million over the Oscar weekend. Disney’s 3-D adaptation had the best open ever for a non-sequel and the largest debut for any winter release outside of the holiday season. (And we thought Passion of the Christ‘s $83.8 million looked good six years ago.)

Tim Burton’s entry gave the director his best first weekend to date (compared to the $68.5 million Planet of the Apes grossed in 2001). The movie did, though, come in second to Johnny Depp’s personal high. (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men’s Chest raked in $135.6 million in 2006.)

Alice also topped all 3-D openers…including Avatar. (Granted, James Cameron did have a blizzard to contend with at the time.)

Box Office Breakdown: Cop Out Misses Out

Cop Out

When is a second place finish considered good news? When it’s the biggest debut you’ve had in your career.

Despite recently being kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight and losing out to Shutter Island, Kevin Smith still has something to smile about. His latest directorial project, , opened to $18.2 million over the weekend. That figure surpasses his previous best of $11.1 million for 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

And while Bruce Willis has clearly seen better days, he hasn’t in some time. Fortunately, his comedic partnership with Tracy Morgan raised over $3 million more than his last major outing, Surrogates, did last September.

Box Office Breakdown: Shutter Island the Weekend’s Top Destination

Shutter Island

Avatar may have finally bested Titanic, but Leonardo DiCaprio still has reason to smile.

, Leo’s latest collaboration with Martin Scorsese, earned $41 million over the past three days—more than twice what it’s nearest competitor pulled in. The gross was not only the actor’s personal best (2002’s Catch Me If You Can earned $30.1 million) but Scorsese’s as well. (The Academy Award winner rang in $26.9 million with 2006’s The Departed.)

Another Oscar-winning helmer, , also had a bit of success at the box office this weekend. The director, who has been at the center of legal drama recently, saw his film The Ghost Writer rake in $183,009 while in limited release. That amount equates to a $45,000 per screen average.

Box Office Breakdown: Valentine’s Day Has Rosy Four-Day Weekend

Valentine's Day

Despite receiving less than enthusiastic reviews, Valentine’s Day remained the point of attraction for many romance-minded ticket buyers this weekend. Garry Marshall’s romantic comedy wooed audiences over the holiday period while simultaneously breaking records in the process.

Warner Bros.’ ensemble cast combined their efforts to pull in $63.1 million over the past four days ($56.2 million for just the first three). The feature became the highest-grossing film during any President’s or Valentine’s Day frame while also topping the studio’s list of four-day debuts.
