John Travolta is a certified private pilot who owns five aircraft , so it's only fitting that the 60-year-old actor's Florida home has two runways that lead directly to his front door. "We designed the house for the jets and to have at our access the world at a moment's notice, and we succeeded at that," a bearded Travolta said during an interview Thursday on Australia's "Today."

Movies: Grimmer, stranger, true-life offerings for fall

What do striking miners in Margaret Thatcher-era Britain, persecuted journalists in Iran and Nicaragua, a brilliant code-breaker exposed as a homosexual, a brilliant physicist debilitated by Lou Gehrig's disease, a Newtown Square multimillionaire turned killer, a British romantic landscape artist in his sunset years, a reformed addict on a 1,100-mile trek, an Olympic-track-star prisoner of war, and a pair of 1950s kitschmongers with a penchant for saucer-eyed waifs have in common? They're all coming to theaters this fall: true-life tales of prejudice, cruelty, creativity, murder, marital disharmony, and survival against the odds.

The teenage heroine Marti moves to an Alabama military base when her father, an EPA agent , is dispatched to investigate the side effects of the army's mysterious experiments.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' offers action and commentary

This year's assortment of superhero movies has been a lively and thought-provoking bunch, and that tone was set early on by Marvel's pre-summer offering "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," a fully realized action-adventure that doubles as a commentary on the surveillance state. As was the case with "The First Avenger," Chris Evans makes a natural Captain America, even after his Cap's been transplanted to a modern world where S.H.I.E.L.D.'s efforts to stop evil have begun to approach the level of fascism.
