FLICK: In Nim's Island adventure writer Alexandra Rover (Jodie Foster) plays a big city loner who is contacted for help by Nim (Abigail Breslin), a young girl living on a remote island, when her father disappears. Guided by literary muse Alex Rover, played by the dreamy Gerard Butler (above), Foster and Breslin count on each other for survival. Check out Fosters surprisingly comedic turn in the trailer here. The movie hits theaters April 4.
TUNES: While she may be releasing the mid-tempo All I See with rapper Mims as her first U.S. single, there is no denying that Kylie Minogues new album, X (out April 1), is all about frothy, unadulterated, electro-infused dance tracks. The Aussie pop queens tenth studio release includes Wow, In My Arms, and 2 Hearts. It's been too long, Kylie, but this catchy, thumpy release was definitely worth the wait.
DO-GOODERNESS: Tony- and Emmy award-winning actress Cynthia Nixon (of Sex and the City fame, above) and Time Warner will be honorees of the Point Inspiration Award and the Point Courage Award, respectively, on April 7.
