Beyonce has a bob, which would be big hair news even if she hadn't chopped off her long locks last week and gone for a petite blond pixie 'do. But she did just chop off her hair a week ago Wednesday. So why the quick turnaround, Bey, after having the long hair for so long? We suppose it's always easier to take that leap the second time you do it. Stepping out in Miami for a lunch date with Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy, the "Single Ladies" singer sported a reverse bob, chin length in the front and short-short-short in the back - held in place with a Greek goddess-style headband.

Victor Salva's "Jeepers Creepers" has the scariest opening sequence of any horror picture in recent memory. Trish (Gina Philips) and her younger brother Darryl (Justin Long), on spring break from college, have decided to take the long way home through sparsely populated farm country. They indulge in the usual brother-sister banter, with Darryl bugging Trish about why she isn't going off somewhere with her supposed boyfriend. Trish in turn razzes him about his bringing dirty laundry home to Mom.

No one can say "Strange Wilderness" writer-producer Peter Gaulke and writer-director Fred Wolf ducked responsibility for the gross-out comedy misfire. The "Saturday Night Live" alums not only kept their names on the movie, which opened Friday without advance screenings, but they also lent their monikers to the main characters.

When director Len Wiseman received the script for "Live Free or Die Hard," the fourth installment in the Bruce Willis action franchise, he suddenly felt like the 15-year-old he'd been when he saw the original in 1988. "I was obsessed with 'Die Hard' in high school," says Wiseman ("Underworld," "Underworld: Evolution"). "The action was amazing, and the relationship between the good guys was like nothing else I had seen before."

It's a crisp, breezy day in Long Beach, and Charlie Day is diving, over and over again, into the cold and not exactly crystal-clear water of the marina for a scene on the FX comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Day may be an executive producer on the series, which he and costars-cowriters Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton developed from a modest video in 2005. But today he's doing what's been described as "Charlie work." That's "Charlie," as in his character, Charlie Kelly — the intellectually challenged, chemically impaired, lovably loser-ish co-owner of the bar Paddy's in the City of Brotherly Love, who always seems to draw the short straw — rather than Charlie Day, the Rhode Island-reared actor who's making his way from TV into movies with a role the romantic comedy "Going the Distance."
