While the multiplex explodes this weekend with superheroes emerging out of every cinematic orifice, next week the blockbuster movie leading the pack will be quite a different beast altogether. A vampire and a witch will battle it out in the 1970s in the high concept fantasy/horror/comedy hybrid "Dark Shadows."

While we'll have to wait see if the team behind "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" ever gets the sequel "Smiley's People" going, it looks like fans of John Le Carré have another adaptation to look forward to.

Well, people, it’s here. Each year, starting around Memorial Day and continuing through the early weeks of summer, we find ourselves knee-deep in a period marked by the release of monstrously large popcorn flicks, movies that show off stars and special effects while raking in the dough. That’s right: it’s the season of the terminal illness drama-comedy. And the studios aren’t wasting any time with two films already released this first weekend. Oh, wait – just kidding. It’s Summer Blockbuster Season! And we’re off to a great start with Marvel’s debut picture this weekend. Buckle up.

We gotta admit, Alden Ehrenreich as a potential franchise star for a series of young adult books leaping to the big screen, is still a hard concept to adjust to. But like it or not, it's coming, and the actor, who has mostly been playing around with the Coppolas ("Tetro," "Twixt," "Somewhere"), could be a name girls start writing on their binders with hearts around it (do kids even use binders these days?).

There are two sides to Jonah Hill. The guy who will make jokes about getting to second base with an old man in "The Watch" trailer, and the actor who has been emerging as a major dramatic talent across films like "Cyrus" and, of course, his Oscar-nominated turned "Moneyball." Now he's graduating to the big time.

Partly due to the Trayvon Martin case and also because their hands are already full with "Prometheus," which comes out a month before, Fox has been kind of quiet on "Neighborhood Watch." Until now. They've dropped a foul-mouthed and pretty fucking hilarious red band trailer for the movie that suddenly has put this one on our radar. And oh, by the way, it's now called "The Watch."

"We're never going to do a sequel," Sam Raimi said in the 2000 book "Evil Dead Companion." But it looks like those words are coming back from the grave to haunt him.

David Cronenberg certainly hasn't been lacking in things to do. The director has been in the midst of preparing/releasing back-to-back films: last year's underrated drama "A Dangerous Method" and the forthcoming "Cosmopolis," which will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in a matter of weeks. And it looks like Cronenberg is ready to let someone else call the shots on set for the moment.
