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

While Atticus Ross is best known for his collaborations with Trent Reznor in Nine Inch Nails and of course on the soundtracks for "The Social Network" (which won them an Oscar) and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," he has ventured out on his own on more than one occassion. He has worked close with the Hughes Brothers, scoring their TV series "Touching Evil" (alongside his wife and brother, Claudia Sarne and Leopold Ross) as well as "The Book of Eli" and Albert's segment in "New York, I Love You." Ross also contributed to the excellent array of talent on the "Days of Grace" soundtrack. Well, he's once again striking out with a solo gig, and and it's one helluva blockbuster project.

At this juncture, it's probably best to cease judging promotional content from the Farrelly Brothers' “The Three Stooges” as something from a legitimate feature, and instead to look at the six clips released as simply an avant-garde film series. Picture Steve McQueen trying his hand at comedy, and you'll get a better grasp on the shocking lack of laughs on show.
