Attention ladies and gentlemen: If you only watch one exciting movie trailer today, pick the one for "Miss Representation," an award-winning, no-holds-barred documentary about the portrayal of women in the media. Check out the film's website for updates about screenings and more. (If you watch a second trailer, I recommend revisiting this classic from 1977's "Suspiria.")

American fans of the filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki ("Spirited Away," "Princess Mononoke") will be thrilled to pick through this amazing collection of the director's lesser-known manga and illustrated storybooks, dating all the way back to 1969. Kudos to MetaFilter user "filthy light thief" for compiling such a stellar assortment of links!

Ridley Scott has announced a follow-up to "Blade Runner," his 1982 cinematic tribute to Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Scott seems unclear whether this would be a sequel or a prequel, but either way this news will disappoint nearly everyone – except for Sean Young, whom no doubt already has her costume ready.

Did you remember to send a card to your auntie Anne Rice, who turned seventy this week? If you decide to send flowers, be advised that she's way more into Easter lilies than Calla lilies these days.

Upon discovering that animator test footage from Disney's version of Alice in Wonderland ultimately became the audio track for the finished film, this YouTuber synced them up so you can watch them play side by side. Spoiler: Ed Wynn's head is disappointingly normal-sized.
