Twilight: Vampire-loving film buffs tended to prefer the critically acclaimed Swedish film Let the Right One In, but if you want to see 2008's swooning, hands-off vampire romance -- from the popular series of novels, handled with absolute seriousness and devotion -- let your inner teen girl gurgle all over this one.

Quantum of Solace: Granted, Daniel Craig doesn't walk out of the ocean in tiny trunks this time around, but in his second at-bat as 007 he's as sexy and dangerous as ever. And the extended spy-chase sequence that unfolds during an avant-garde staging of Tosca makes for one of the series' most exciting and eye-popping moments. (March 24)

Monsters vs Aliens: The trailer for this Dreamworks animation feature suggests that it might be a worthy successor to Kung Fu Panda, not a retreat into sub-Pixar mediocrity. And the voice cast -- with Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, and The Office 's Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski, to name a few -- reads like an A-list of funny. (March 27)

12 Rounds: All you need to know is that it's an action movie from the director of The Long Kiss Goodnight and it stars big dumb former wrestler/side of beef John Cena. He will, no doubt, take off his shirt a few times. (March 27)

Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them ( New York City Public Theater ): Christopher Durang has a new play, which is always a cause for celebration. The crazy title gives us every reason to believe it will be as hilarious, absurd, and politically outspoken as the plays that made Durang famous, including Laughing Wild and Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You . Nicholas Martin directs an intriguing cast that includes longtime Durang diva Kristine Nielsen and Broadway chanteuse Laura Benanti, who deservedly won a Tony last season playing the title role in Gypsy . (March 24 to April 26)

33 Variations (Broadway, the Eugene O'Neill Theater ): Jane Fonda hasn't been on Broadway since 1963. Now she's returning to the stage to play a musicologist who is obsessively searching through Beethoven's notebooks and letters trying to understand the mystery of genius. 33 Variations is written and directed by Moises Kaufman, whose Tectonic Theater Project created Gross Indecency: The Trials of Oscar Wilde and The Laramie Project and whose work is always worth seeing. (March 9 to May 24)
