What happens when you're about become the biggest actress on the planet? Projects start moving. Should "Prometheus" land the way many expect it will, Noomi Rapace will quickly become a (quirky) household name and Hollywood wants to make sure there is more of her on the way. Popping up and getting a taste of a multiplex sized movie in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows," and currently filming "Passion" with Brian DePalma another project that actress was linked to last fall is moving forward.

When Christopher Guest and his mostly regular crew of funny people including Eugene Levy, Fred Willard and Bob Balaban appeared during the Oscar broadcast in February, it was a welcome a treat and one of the best moments on the show. It has been a far too long seven years since the gang's last outing, the admittedly tepid "For Your Consideration," but we hoped their brief reunion was a sign there was something bigger on the horizon. Alas, it seems it's not to be.

It seems the baseball movie is back in vogue in Hollywood. While the genre pics are generally well-received stateside, studios and the like have been reluctant to put too much money behind them in recent times, as the sport doesn't play well internationally, where box office dollars are more important than ever. But with Jackie Robinson getting the big-screen treatment courtesy of Brian Helgeland's "42," another giant of the game is stepping up to the plate.

While there are still those who will bitch and moan that Woody Allen's comedies haven't evolved much over the past few decades, for those with appropriate expectations, the director's films are -- even at their flimsiest -- generally a delightful annual treat. And so it goes with "To With Rome Love," which hardly breaks new ground, but offers up enough charms that we're looking forward to it.

Review: 'The Hunter' Is An Eerie And Deeply Affecting Eco-Thriller

In their 2006 book "Carnivorous Nights: On the Trail of the Tasmanian Tiger," authors Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson, then researchers at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, talked about becoming obsessed with a stuffed Tasmanian Tiger that they would walk by every day in the museum. It became "something akin to amorous fervor," and eventually they decided to take a trip to Tasmania to see if the tiger, which officially became extinct in 1936 when the lone survivor died at the Hobart Zoo, still existed, somewhere in the wild. It's the kind of mysterious animal – lithe, beautiful, angular – that inspires this kind of devotion, even decades after its extinction. And it's this kind of nearly mythic eeriness that seeps into "The Hunter," Daniel Nettheim's dark and deeply haunting film based on the novel by Julia Leigh, about a man (Willem Dafoe) obsessed with finding the tiger, no matter the cost.
