Here's a look at the new movies opening nationwide today:
* Hellboy II: The Golden Army -- Demon superhero Hellboy, who battles an underground dictator and his army of fantasy creatures. Rated PG-13.

* Journey to the Center of the Earth -- The classic novel inspires a digital 3D adventure starring Brendan Fraser as a science professor who, with his nephew and a female guide, explores, well, the center of the Earth. Rated PG.

* Meet Dave – Eddie Murphy stars as the title character, which is actually a spaceship in human form controlled by very small aliens who live inside the body. Dave takes its appearance from the captain -- played, of course, by Murphy. Rated PG.

As part of Major League Baseball's All-Star celebration, STAR Artist Bon Jovi will rock the Great Lawn of New York City's Central Park in a free concert tomorrow night. Though the show is free, fans need a ticket to get in, and 60,000 have been handed out, even though the city wants to limit the number of people attending to 50,000.

American Idol champ and STAR Artist David Cook has revealed that he's working with some heavy-hitters on his debut CD, including some of his personal musical idols. David tells Entertainment Weekly that he's written songs for the project with the lead singer of his favorite band, Our Lady Peace, as well as with Ed Roland, frontman for STAR Artist Collective Soul.

Jessica Alba reportedly sold herself short - or should we say, she sold her baby short - by accepting "only" $1.5 million from Ok! magazine for photos of Honor Marie, who was born last month.

Thousands of teens will be glued to their TV sets on Sunday night, when Ashley Tisdale presents the world premiere of the High School Musical 3 trailer on the Disney Channel at 6:55 p.m. The movie hits theaters on October 24th.

I'll say one thing for Jessica Simpson's boyfriend, Tony Romo: he's loyal. When asked by People magazine to name his top three iPod tracks, Tony named Journey’s "Don't Stop Believing," Guns ‘n Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" and, quote, "something by Jessica Simpson."

Nicole Kidman has received hundreds of bouquets of flowers from well-wishers congratulating her on the birth of her daughter Sunday Rose, but the largest delivery apparently came from her ex, Tom Cruise. A source tells me, "Tom was one of the first people to get in touch and he sent enough flowers to fill a room."

Have a great weekend!
