We're a little more than two weeks away from the world premiere of Marvel's "The Avengers" on April 11th, which can only mean one thing for the comic company and fledgling movie studio: the start of phase two of their plans. Everything so far, from 2008's "Iron Man" to last year's "Captain America: The First Avenger" has been moving towards their ambitious, Joss Whedon-helmed team-up movie, but with that film almost in theaters, their further plans remain mostly under wraps.

"Mexico City. 2002, 2006, 2010. A cop. A hostage. A wife. Corruption, violence, vengeance. Three destinies, during 30 days, during three Soccer World Cups. Three ways to fight in order to survive." This is the synopsis of "Days Of Grace." Starring Eva Longoria, Carlos Bardem (Javier's brother), Miguel Rodarte and Paulina Gaitan, while writer/Director Everardo Gout's first feature doesn't have a U.S. release date yet (it screened out of competition at Cannes last year), it does have a rather interesting soundtrack worth noting and maybe that'll give it extra attention.

Well this is a pretty inspired piece of casting. "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil" director Sacha Gervasi continues to build up his movie-about-a-movie pic "Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho," and he's already got two great veterans on board with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren playing Alfred Hitchock and his wife Alma Reville respectively. And now he's found his Janet Leigh.

There are certainly some pretty horrible film titles that get churned out on a regular basis, and while they probably mean little in the grand scheme of things, naming a movie is still something Hollywood takes very seriously. On that note, it looks like a trio of highly anticipated films have had their titles put under the microscope recently, with two now set for changes and one gaining its first name.

Pitched somewhere between an earnest and romantically idealistic chronicle of loss and hope and a poignant examination of grief and bitter pains of family, Cameron Crowe's "We Bought A Zoo," occasionally still slathers it on too thick with the saccharine sentimentality and telegraphed romantic clichés, but by and large, the picture still succeeds in its heartwarming aims thanks to its naked, heart-on-its sleeve sincerity. Not an easy trick in an age of cynicism and information, but one that ultimately works regardless.

Scarlett Johansson Was Unsure About 'We Bought A Zoo' At First; Says 'Summer Crossing' Doesn't Have A Part For A Big Star

It's hard to believe that Scarlett Johansson is only 27 years old. The actress carries herself with the air and beauty of an old-school movie star, but has the wit and wisdom of your favorite drinking buddy. What she's accomplished so far on the big screen is impressive, and what's more exciting is that we're only at the beginning of what is likely be a long, varied and fascinating career. A testament to how diverse she has become can be seen in her next trio of movies -- Cameron Crowe's holiday crowd-pleaser "We Bought A Zoo"; the geek fave "The Avengers" and Jonathan Glazer's sci-fi indie "Under The Skin" -- but as she reveals to Vanity Fair in a recent profile, the material comes first.

For a brief moment there, it seemed like Scarlett Johansson and Woody Allen were inseparable. Starring in (almost) three straight movies for the director -- "Match Point," "Scoop" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (Allen also delivered "Cassandra's Dream" in that stretch) -- the actress was part of the director's late stage career return to glory after nearly a decade marked by a series of increasingly bad films. But after that trio of pictures, they parted ways at Allen's insistence, fearing that the actress would become defined only by her work with him.
