Hugh Jackman's clawed hero Wolverine has the unenviable task of traveling back in time to try to save the world in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and the final trailer finds him following in the grand movie tradition of assembling his team. His first recruit in the film, which unites the casts of the original "X-Men" trilogy with the 1960s-set prequel "X-Men: First Class," is none other than a young Professor Xavier (James McAvoy). As the trailer makes clear, the telepathic professor and his school for mutants have both seen better days.

Like an A-student with a plum assignment, "Frankie & Alice" star Halle Berry tears into the part of Francis Murdoch with a performance that says, "I got this one": a loose-cannon stripper suffering from multiple personalities, including one who's a racist, haughty, white Southern belle. The '70s-set film is based on a real psychotherapy case, and Berry's portrayal is pure marquee turn, full of hot jazzy light, if rarely anything penetrating, but it's immensely watchable. Even without the virtuosic vocal switchbacks (there's a scared young girl alter ego too)

Conan O'Brien may not have much to talk to Jay Leno about these days, but the rival talk-show hosts do share at least one thing in common: They both go a little gaga in the presence of Halle Berry. Leno couldn't help ogling Berry when she stopped by “The Tonight Show” Monday night wearing a plunging black minidress. On Wednesday, it was O'Brien's turn to lose his cool over the Oscar-winning beauty, meaning that, in one way at least, he's still following Leno. After a fun flashback to an appearance Berry made 20 years ago on a very early episode of O'Brien's NBC talk show "Late Night," wearing a hat that looked like it was borrowed from the “Blossom” wardrobe department, the conversation turned to her line of perfumes - specifically, how and where to apply them.

Berry, who's bantered with Leno often during her frequent appearances on "The Tonight Show," stopped by to promote her latest film "The Call.

Actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner testified in Sacramento on Tuesday in support of a bill aimed at protecting the children of celebrities and public officials from paparazzi. Senate Bill 606, proposed by Sen. Kevin DeLeon (D-Los Angeles), would change the legal definition of harassment to include any conduct that "alarms, annoys torments or terrorizes" a child while photographing or recording that child without express parental consent. The legislation specifically mentions photography that involves "following the child's activities or lying in wait" and targeting a child because of a parent's line of work.  The actresses said they appeared before the legislative committee as mothers concerned for the safety of their children, who aren't celebrities.
