Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. SmithMemorial Day weekend is always huge for movies, but this one has to take the cake as the most gargantuan ever. Things got going on Saturday, when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (pictured here in 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith') welcomed their first-born in a tiny manger in Bethlehem -- or was it a hospital in Namibia? I'm always getting confused. Although the birth was shrouded in more secrecy than the meaning of all those numbers on 'Lost,' mom and baby (a daughter named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt) are said to be doing just fine. Not to be outdone by ma and pa, Shiloh is already earning her keep: A weekly entertainment mag will fork over a reported $5 mil for exclusive photos of the babe. Brad and Angie are donating the cash to UNICEF, but still an impressive first paycheck for Shiloh.

Ben Foster in X-Men: The Last Stand

In addition to this Brangelina-tastic news, its seems as though Angel (Ben Foster, pictured) must have been watching over 'X-Men: The Last Stand' at the box office. The third installment in the increasingly lucrative franchise slashed through 'The Da Vinci Code' like Wolverine's adamantium claws through Robert Langdon's glistening mane, setting records for the biggest Memorial Day weekend opening ever ($120.1 million) and the single best Friday ever ($45.5 million). Only last year's 'Star Wars: Episode III' has taken in more money in a single day. Soar on, Angel!

And finally, as if a new 'X-Men' movie weren't enough, comic-book fanboys in New York City had another reason to wet their pants. Tobey Maguire, Topher Grace and Bryce Dallas Howard hit the streets of midtown Manhattan on Sunday and Monday, filming what appeared to be a skyscraper battle scene for next summer's 'Spider-Man 3.' Ain't It Cool News has photos if you want to check 'em out. Highlights include Topher sporting blonde-from-a-bottle hair and looking like Doogie Howser, and Tobey giving us a peek at the cool new black Spidey suit. My only complaint: Where was Kirsten Dunst?
