U.S. Sen. and former presidential candidate John McCain watched the movie Zero Dark Thirty and says it left him sick, because it’s misleading and just plan wrong.

He says waterboarding al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, did not provide information that led to bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.

For the third time this week, a movie studio has canceled a red carpet event out of respect for the victims of the Connecticut school shooting in Newtown.

Following the elimination of the Jack Reacher premiere and the opening of Parental Guidance, we've now learned that there will be no Hollywood premiere for Quentan Tarantino's latest, Django Unchained.

Said the Weinstein Company in a statement:

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, and in this time of national mourning we have decided to forgo our scheduled event."

Django Unchained opens on Christmas Day and stars Jaime Foxx as a recently-freed slave who teams up with a bounty hunter to on a killing spree and rescue his wife.

It also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz.

Forget ski vacations or winter weekends in the tropics. Movie goers were all about taking a trip this weekend to Middle Earth.

The Hobbit - a prequel to The Lord of the Rings, and the first in a brand new trilogy from director Peter Jackson - took in $84.8 million in its first three days of release.

That made it number-one at the box office by a very wide margin and set a December record in the process, blowing by the $77.2 million made on opening weekend by I Am Legend in 2007.

Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins

Can The Hobbit equal the grosses of its J.R.R. Tolkien predecessors, each of whom took home over $300 million domestically?

We shall see. For now, scroll down and check out the weekend's top five:
