Better batten down the hatches! "The Dark Knight Rises" has now landed an official rating and it's not that shocking, fully expected PG-13. The MPAA warns viewers the movie contains "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." In other news, the sky is blue and grass in green.

Consider this a matchup of brands moreso than movies. "The Hunger Games" ruled the roost for the third straight weekend, the new millennial hit beating back two 90's sensations with ease, almost suggesting a passing of the torch. Young people will always like sweeping romance and bawdy sex, but for this weekend, it was all about that popular pastime of child-on-child murder.

Remember last fall when Ron Meyer, the president & COO of Universal Pictures, said, "We make a lot of shitty movies. Every one of them breaks my heart"? Well, in the timeliest of fashion, six months later, Meyer has attempted to clarify what he actually meant, which is that yes, sometimes Universal sometimes makes shitty movies (he last cited "The Wolfman," "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Land of the Lost"), however, adding, "we make some good movies and some shitty movies. Nobody ever sets out to make a shitty movie.”

Terrence Howard has been around for a while, and done a lot of different things, but has be ever really played a bad guy? Listen, it's Friday afternoon, it's Easter and we may be forgetting something, but we can't remember when last the Academy Award nominated actor made life hard for a couple of protagonists. But either way, his next role will see him doing just that.

Buddies with Kanye West, connoisseur of fine cuisines, stand-up comedian and all around funny guy, Aziz Ansari continues to delivers laughs as the hapless and horny Tom Haverford on "Parks and Recreation" while continuing to solidfy his street cred by rolling with the Apatow crowd. And while his first major big screen outing in last summer's "30 Minutes or Less" was a bit of a fizzle, for his next round at the multiplex, he'll be surrounded by some good friends with an arsenal of comedic talent and wit to riff off of.

Well, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" is just looming over the horizon and there is no movie this summer -- or hell, this year -- that is matching the anticipation felt for this quasi-"Alien" prequel. And though actual details on the plot and where this story will go has been kept mostly close to the chest, there has been a generous serving of images and video from the film, and a few more pics have arrived as you head into your weekend.

So “The Hunger Games” is still doing quite well, “Wrath of the Titans” is performing tolerably, but looking to ripple the waters this weekend is the behemoth of behemoth blockbuster movies, “Titanic (in 3D),” which (re)opened on Wednesday. It will again make James Cameron a boatload of money (HA) so he can buy another submarine or whatever he uses his money for. Not a bad life Cameron, not bad at all. Oh, and some other movies opened as well, in the event that you’re in the mood for something other than a large-budget epic with sick CGI. Thrillers, indie comedies, and dramedies set in Vatican City abound this week: sit back, relax, and “never let go, Jack.” (I'm so sorry for that. I just couldn’t resist.)

Well if the cast of “Transformers” helmer Michael Bay’s low-budget (in Bay terms) dark comedy “Pain and Gain” isn’t the most eclectic ensemble of talent he’s ever assembled, it’s certainly the best he’s done in years.

As part of the ramp up to promote her terrific new HBO series “Girls” -- which we really can’t say enough good things about -- BAMcinematek in Brooklyn invited filmmaker Lena Dunham to program a series entitled “Hey, Girlfriend! Lena Dunham Presents” featuring a diverse slate of films all centered around female relationships. The series features little-seen gems like “Times Square” and “Girlfriends” as well as more established cult films like “Clueless,” “Mulholland Drive,” and Whit Stillman’s 1998 indie-classic “The Last Days of Disco,” which until today had been the filmmaker’s most recent feature
