23 – 25 – How great was it to hear Carlos Vives again on his new single "Volvi a Nacer" back in September, after a three-year hiatus? Expect a full studio album from Vives some time in 2013, but first, check him out at the Billboard Latin Music Conference in Miami, where he'll be sharing bits of wisdom as keynote speaker.
TBD – The late Jenni Rivera makes her acting debut in Filly Brown, alongside Gina Rodriguez, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Edward James Olmos. Is her performance Oscar-worthy? Olmos seems to think so.
10th – We want every single outfit Carey Mulligan wears in Baz Luhrmann's big-screen approach to The Great Gatsby. And we'll take Leonardo DiCaprio in suspenders, too.
24th – Michelle Rodriguez comes back from the dead in The Fast and Furious 6. Because she can.
14th – Can Henry Cavill fill Christopher Reeve's shoes? Probably not – because no one can, and Brandon Routh certainly failed in 2006's Superman Returns. That's when you call in producer Chris Nolan and director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) to create Man of Steel, a film that proposes something entirely new and refreshing yet is still good enough for loyal comic book nerds, much like Nolan's Batman trilogy was.
21st – Brad Pitt fights zombies in World War Z. They look like the ones in I Am Legend's cousins.
12th - Speaking of apocalyptic creatures, Guillermo del Toro's epic robots vs monsters adventure Pacific Rim arrives in theaters, with Idris Elba as the lead. We'd feel safe in his arms…
9th - Arsenio Hall returns to TV with his own late night syndicated talk show. Chant with us: "Woof! Woof! Woof!"
20th - Anchorman 2. Because Will Ferrell needs a chance to prove that he's still funny.
