"Songs From District 12 And Beyond" reads the subheading of the forthcoming "Hunger Games" soundtrack, when leads us to think that not all of these songs will make the cut into the movie. But, no matter, as the full tracklist for the disc has been revealed and it's certainly eclectic, and if it turns some tweens onto some decent music that isn't Skrillex or Karmin (who we didn't know existed until "Saturday Night Live" this weekend), then we can't complain.

It's almost like the "Twilight" music syndrome all over again on the surface. A studio has a teen phenom-to-be project on their hands and they drive a dump truck full of cash up to the doorsteps of musicians who can't say no.

Listen, you can keep your footage from the set of "The Dark Knight Rises" shoot and we'll just geek out over this instead. In case you missed it, over the weekend attentive attendees of the Austin City Limits Music Festival were in for a surprise when Christian Bale and Terrence Malick were spotted shooting a film on the grounds. Well, that was just the tip of the iceberg as a plethora of new footage and pics have landed and while we still have no idea what they are working on, the rare opportunity to see video Terrence Malick working on a film set is pretty great.

It feels like years since rumors started flying that Spike Jonze would be collaborating with Montreal's favorite sons Arcade Fire on a short film inspired by their latest album -- and indeed, the project was first revealed over a year ago. We've had a glimpse of the final product (entitled "Scenes From The Suburbs"), in the form of the video for the title track from the album, and the film premiered at SXSW last month, but with the group now anointed as one of the biggest bands in the world, following their surprise success at the Grammys, it feels like about time you and me got to see the full thing, right?

While technically not a full-length feature, Spike Jonze's Arcade Fire music video/short film/spin-off/thingee "Scenes from the Suburbs" is one of the most hotly anticipated and frequently discussed entries in this year's SXSW line-up, so much so that they paired it with three other medium-length "shorts" and created a whole new distinction for them. (Since they're longer than shorts but shorter than features.) "What is it?", is the biggest question, but "Will it work?" was just as pressing.

With their return-to-form record "The Suburbs" winning a surprise victory for Album of the Year at the Grammys last night, Arcade Fire are pretty much at the top of the world right now, and as longtime fans of the band, we're delighted. But the band's ambitions clearly don't stop here: they're going for part two of the EGOT, with a short film collaboration with Spike Jonze that was announced last year, making our filthy hipster brains explode.

For those lucky enough to attend the Berlin Film Festival, they will be able to catch the thirty minute Spike Jonze short film "Scenes From The Suburbs" based around Arcade Fire's latest album "The Suburbs," at one of its four screenings. The rest of us will have to wait, but for now a new poster recently debuted on the band's website, will have to suffice.
