Halle Berry Resurrects 'Frankie & Alice' Film

'Frankie & Alice' first made headlines in 2010 when it received a qualifying run during awards season and scored Halle Berry a Globe Globe nomination and a win at the NAACP Image Awards, but then, it disappeared.

This past weekend, the film was finally released by Lionsgate/Codeblack in 171 theaters and it emerged as the highest specialty film of the weekend by pulling with a $350,000 gross and a respectful $2,047 per theater average.

The film, which deals with dissociative identity disorder, was always a tough sell and the final product comes off like a made-for-television move, but Berry once again delivers a powerful performance that was deserving of more accolades. Hopefully, the end reward will be her finally getting projects that are equal to her undeniable talent as an actress. Watch eight clips from the Geoffrey Sax film beneath:

It has been a whirlwind year for Pharrell Williams!!! After being featured on hit after hit and turning the Academy Awards into a dancing party, the super-producer once again soared to the top on his own with "Happy" and now, he earns the honor of becoming Celebrity Bug's Featured Artist for April 2014.

The No.1 single is lifted from his latest solo album 'GIRL', which sold over a 100,000 copies in its first week of release and started at No.2 on the Billboard 200.
