Here are the movies hitting theaters today:
* Lakeview Terrace -- Samuel L. Jackson plays good cop-bad cop as an LAPD officer who causes major problems for his new neighbors, an interracial couple of whom he disapproves. Rated PG-13.

* My Best Friend's Girl -- Jason Biggs' Dustin has his heart broken by his girlfriend, played by Kate Hudson, but he refuses to give up on their relationship. He asks his best friend -- Dane Cook -- to take her on a bad date, hoping that she'll crawl back to Dustin afterward. Alec Baldwin also stars. Rated R.

* Ghost Town -- British comedian and Extras actor Ricky Gervais is a New York dentist named Bertram Pincus, whose brush with death leaves him with the ability to see dead people. Greg Kinnear plays one of those ghosts -- he wants to stop his widow from getting remarried, with Pincus' help. Tea Leoni also stars. Rated PG-13.

* Igor -- Igor's a lab assistant and budding mad scientist whose dream of creating a monster doesn't go according to plan. John Cusack, Molly Shannon, Jay Leno and Christian Slater lend their voices to the animated film. Rated PG.

A musician from a band named The Asphault is suing STAR Artist Daughtry over their hit song “Feels Like Tonight.” This guy claims the song was ripped off his song “Tonight” which he wrote in 2005 but didn’t copyright until this year. Daughtry, the record company, plus the 3 guys who actually wrote the song (because Daughtry actually didn’t) are all named in the suit. Apple is even being sued because they sold the song on iTunes. So does random dude’s song “Tonight” actually sound like “Feels Like Tonight?” Judge for yourself:

STAR Artist Alicia Keys is singing the new James Bond movie theme with Jack White from a group called the White Stripes. It’s called “Another Way to Die” and here's a clip of it:

The 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are this Sunday night on ABC-TV, and this year, there's a brand-new category: Best Reality TV Show Host. In honor of that, all five nominees in the category – Ryan Seacrest of American Idol, Dancing With the Stars' Tom Bergeron, Jeff Probst of Survivor, Project Runway's Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel of Deal or No Deal -- will co-host the Emmys together. I thought Deal or No Deal was a game show but what do I know?

I’m guessing you’ve seen at least one of those epically boring Seinfeld-Bill Gates Microsoft ads? Thank God Microsoft announced today they’re pulling them off the air. But a senior vice president from Microsoft tells me the notion they’re doing some quick thing to cancel those ads is preposterous. They evidently were meant to capture our attention just in time for a new line of Windows commercials. But don’t they run the risk the ads will turn us off so much we won’t care about the newer, more normal ads? They were so bad…they were worse than the Seinfeld finale.

David Archuleta and STAR Artist David Cook will perform together at a Ford Motor Company event today. They probably want to say thank you for those free Ford Escapes they got too.

STAR Artiist The All American Rejects will release their new album "When The World Comes Down" on November 18th.
