"Bolt" -- Disney's 3-D animated adventure centers on a pup (voiced by John Travolta) that stars on a weekly TV series and thinks he really does have all the superpowers he enjoys on the show. Miley Cyrus provides the voice of his owner, who is worried sick after he accidentally gets shipped off to big bad New York City.
"Twilight" -- The wait is finally over for the legions of fans who have been anticipating director Catherine ("Thirteen") Hardwicke's adaptation of the first book in Stephenie Meyer's series of novels about a teenage girl (Kristen Stewart) in love with a vampire (Robert Pattinson). Sort of like "Wuthering Heights," with fangs.
