The horror film "The Possession" is set to claim the No. 1 spot over the Labor Day weekend, though the most frightening thing at the box office may be poor overall ticket sales. The Sam Raimi-produced scary movie is expected to take in a decent $15 million over the four-day holiday, according to individuals who have seen pre-release audience surveys. "Lawless," a crime drama starring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy, will have to vie for the runner-up position against "2016: Obama's America," as each is likely to gross around $12 million during the long weekend.

While Hilary Swank was making the inspirational drama "Freedom Writers" with writer-director Richard LaGravenese, he told her that for her next film, "I want you to do something lighter and funny and girlie. You are such a girl, and you are so funny." Despite having won best actress Oscars for 1999's "Boys Don't Cry" and 2004's "Million Dollar Baby" -- or maybe because of it -- the whippet-slender 33-year-old Swank knows she isn't the first person who comes to mind for a romantic comedy.

T.R. Knight, beware. Semi-public rumblings about one's desire to be freed from under the firm press of "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes' thumb have a way of not ending so well.

Who's on DVD? Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The first season of the comedy legends' TV series, "The Abbott and Costello Show," arrives today in a fun, nostalgic "100th Anniversary Collection Season 1" set (Passport Entertainment, $40).

Knight (who plays George O'Malley) and Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens) were leaving the show.

There is something kind of groovy about "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. " The mellow yellow comedy stars Jane Fonda as a 70-something hippie with a passion for pot and protest suddenly dealing with the prodigal daughter who is back in the picture after revolting against that lifestyle years ago. It's not "On Golden Pond" by any stretch, but it is nice to have Fonda back in the fractious family way. Written by first-timers Christina Mengert and...

Acting couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are the latest owners of a California ranch house in the Pacific Palisades that has been capturing the imagination of A-listers since Gregory Peck bought it in 1947. The pair recently purchased the nearly 8,800-square-foot home from producer Brian Grazer for $17.55 million, according to public records. Built in the late 1930s, the Cliff May-designed low-slung house was innovative for its time and today is considered typical of his trademark designs.
