In you're in a retro mood this weekend, we have a review round-up for "Dark Shadows" on the latest collaboration between Depp and Burton. We also give a review round-up for "The Dictator" with Sacha Baron Cohen, in case you're up for some uncomfortable hilary. Interested in the box office last week? We give a thorough look to "The Avengers" effect: who comes out ahead? (Hint, it's nearly everyone). In our Weekend Box Office, we write how "Avengers" shattered North American Box Office Records with $200-million haul. In the Arthouse Box Office, we note 'Marigold' Is 'Avengers' for Seniors, 'First Position' and 'Bernie' Score. To prep yourself for a great Cannes release, check out our exclusive clip from Maiwenn's gripping Cannes winner, "Polisse." Another Cannes debut, 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' also debuts on HBO: Kidman & Owen talk sex and Hemingway's boots.

The Best of TOH! this week starts off with the Weekend Preview from Steve Jobs and Paul Simon to France, Lebanon, and Japan.

In you're in a retro mood this weekend, we have a review round-up for "Dark Shadows" on the latest collaboration between Depp and Burton.  We also give a review round-up for "The Dictator" with Sacha Baron Cohen, in case you're up for some uncomfortable hilary.

Interested in the box office last week?  We give a thorough look to "The Avengers" effect: who comes out ahead? (Hint, it's nearly everyone).  In our Weekend Box Office, we write how "Avengers" shattered North American Box Office Records with $200-million haul.  In the Arthouse Box Office, we note 'Marigold' Is 'Avengers' for Seniors, 'First Position' and 'Bernie' Score. 

To prep yourself for a great Cannes release, check out our exclusive clip from Maiwenn's gripping Cannes winner, "Polisse."   Another Cannes debut, 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' also debuts on HBO: Kidman & Owen talk sex and Hemingway's boots.

The Cannes Market Watch: Roadside Attractions sci-fi thriller "Branded" debuts in Cannes market. Radiant Films snags "Madame Bovary" with Mia Wasikowska, Paul Giamatti, and Ezra Miller.   Solution takes "Grand Piano" with Elijah Wood, High Point Media Groupt gets John Boorman documentaryIFC and Sundance Selects acquire 'On the Road" for fall release.  Cassavetes goes gritty for Kristen Stewart's "Cali", and more in the works at the festival, Polanski to direct period thriller "D."  Cornish and Gleeson form an unlikely pair in "An Ordinary Man."

In other festival coverage, we highlight the opening night, celebrating 25 Year's of Columbia's film festival at Tully Hall.  Next ask De Niro vs. Redford: after Sundance London, Tribeca launches rival Tribeca Firenze at Tuscan Sun Festival.

Columns this week:  Immersed in Movies talks "The Hobbit," higher frame rates and virtual production at FMX.  Now and Then: compares 'Haywire,' 'Bourne' Trilogy, proving that style is substance.


Other curiosities of the week?  We cover some reality TV lunacy as Oscar-Winner Clint Eastwood contends with 'Mrs. Eastwood & Company.'
