"Hunger Games" Arrives:  We highlight the film in our Weekend Preview, and analyze how the filmmakers achieved a well-earned home run.  We posted an interview round-up from the cast and mapped out Jennifer Lawrence's upcoming acting roles.  For a sneak peak of the film, you can tour the Capitol City, but fans beware, we also reported the scammers are after "Hunger Games" related keywords.

Terence Davies' "Deep Blue Sea" also premieres this week; we interviewed Rachel Weisz as well as her co-star Tom Hiddleston, who talks about "Deep Blue Sea," "Thor" and "The Avengers."

Not in the mood for the multiplex?  Check out Abel Gance's "Napoleon" in San Francisco, highlighted in this week's "Immersed in Movies" column or see a LACMA presentation: "Adventures in Wonderland: Alice and Other Lost Girls in Fantastic Worlds."

In the Works: Ridley Scott reveals the international trailer for "Prometheus," (June 8), and Fox's new Project Prometheus website requires a secret password. 

Nine garish, gothic character posters were revealed from Tim Burton's upcoming "Dark Shadows" film (May 11). 

Robert Orci launched "Ender's Game" production blog

Whit Stillman Talks 'Damsels in Distress,' 13-Year Hiatus, Upcoming Ska Rocksteady Project

Robert Pattison stars in a violent trailer for David Cronenberg's upcoming adaptation of Don DeLillo's "Cosmopolis." 

His "Twilight" chum Kristen Stewart stars in "Snow White and the Huntsman," with a trailer of her own out this week as well. 

Sony Pictures Classics changed the name of Woody Allen's upcoming film, again; this time we've got "To Rome with Love," rather than "The Bop Decameron" or "Nero Fiddled."

And a first clip from "Cabin in the Woods" reveals a hilarious take on horror.

On the Home Screen: HBO releases "You Win or You Die," a 22 minute video recap and preview for "Game of Thrones."

Warner Home Video released a box set of 19 Harry Potter DVDs, including five of never-before-seen footage to appease Harry Potter franchise fans. 

Sony released their DVD of David Fincher's "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," a copy that looks blank, pirated, yet somehow stylish. 

Speaking of stylish, Vogue released photos by Fincher of a glam Rooney Mara, advertising for RED cameras. 

For an old-school flashback, "Now and Then" this week features Katharine Hepburn.
