Weekend movie guide: We recommend "The Cabin in the Woods" (our review here) and "The Lady" (Weekend Preview). For something more retro, Immersed in Movies reviews the restored "Two for the Road" (which will debut at TCM Classic Film Fest). For a thoughtful Foreign Oscar nominee, try "Monsieur Lazhar" (director Falardeau talks here).

To Rome With Love

Weekend movie guide: We recommend "The Cabin in the Woods" (our review here) and "The Lady" (Weekend Preview).  For something more retro, Immersed in Movies reviews the restored "Two for the Road" (which will debut at TCM Classic Film Fest). For a thoughtful Foreign Oscar nominee, try "Monsieur Lazhar" (director Falardeau talks here).

Summer blockbuster status: Here's  8 Things You Want to Know from EW's Summer Preview: 'Dark Knight Rises,' 'Avengers,' 'Huntsman,' and 'Magic Mike.'"  Speaking of "Dark Knight Rises," Nolan speaks candidly in an interview on his filming preferences (hint: he's a traditionalist). If you were looking forward to "Battleship," critics' early reviews unleashed brickbats.  CinemaCon's Awards hint at potential summer breakouts: They go to Renner, Theron, Pfeiffer, Kitsch, Johnson, Katzenberg, and Apatow.  Speaking of summer tentpoles, Matt Mueller covers the first ever release of 3-D footage from Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" in London, followed by a Q&A with Scott and the cast.

Auteur updates: Martin Scorsese outlines Sinatra biopic possibilites; the latest on Tarantino's "Django Unchained": a new poster, final casting, and release plans. We also break down a character guide and synopsis. Woody Allen returns stateside for his next feature and he's opening the LA Film Fest with To Rome with Love."  We debuted the new French trailer for Jacques Audiard's "Rust & Bone," showcasing Cotillard and Schoenaerts, which should debut at Cannes.

Industry news: Anne Thompson analyses the Liongsate/Ross breakup over "The Hunger Games,"  the Liongsate and Summit merger and the effect of moving back the release of "Ender's Game," Lionsgate's International Overhaul Before Cannes and FilmDistrict's hiring of studio-exec Orr to run distribution.

Feminist debate: Sophia Savage addresses Ashley Judd, Kate WInslet, and Jennifer Lawrence vs. our toxic misogynistic culture.

On the small screen: Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson will team up for Fukunaga's "True Detective." HBO renews the acclaimed "Game of Thrones" - we answer whether you have to know what's going on to join in. Now & Then takes on the "mad-as-hell" women of "Mad Men and Beth Hanna does a Review and Recap.
