Certainly regardless of the job title (although with that job title you should know the answer to your first question) you've got a lot of reading to do. The question is so broad that it's not really possible to answer comprehensibly on a forum. The brief answer is they shoot on 35mm and HD video.

Traditionally most epic Hollywood movies were shot on 65mm film and were showcased in grand theatres using the roadshow means of distribution. However with the advent of the multiplex theatre most big films nowadays are shot on 35mm film. However with the advent of 4k digital projection 65mm film origination will probably make a comeback and the Batman movie "The Dark Knight" used a lot of 65mm film origination.

Although an old format, the high budget feature films were only regularly shot on 65mm for a limited period from the mid 1950s to 1970s. Most Hollywood films, even some quite epic ones were shot on 35mm and those wanting that big wide screen using the scope format. Vistavision was also used for a short period, this format together with 65mm has been used for visual effects, but not as the main production format on the vast majority of films.

The question was about current practise and with the odd, rare exception 35mm is the film gauge used rather than 65mm.
