Written by: Tony Lazlo, CC2K Staff Writer

ImageMusic icon Prince will headline the Coachella music festival this year, and we've got some new pics and spoilers for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Also, do you want to see Scarlett Johansson in a nurse uniform? Who wouldn't?

Prince will headline the Coachella music festival.

Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie and John Hurt will star in the late Anthony Minghella-scripted segment of New York, I Love You. The cast will also include Orlando Bloom, Olivia Thirlby, Hayden Christensen and Ethan Hawke.

Lexi Alexander talks about directing Punisher: War Zone on her blog. Always great to see another female director, period, much less an action director.

Latino Review is reporting that Jake Gyllenhaal may play the title role in Prince of Persia.

Sorry: High School Musical 4.

Hey, Batman On Film has what looks like the first review of The Dark Knight, and the movie apparently includes two scenes that may not make the final, final cut. Read about 'em in inviso-text below:

• In one scene, Batman tells the Joker "You complete me." I guess that echoes a line from Brokeback Mountain.
Another scene shows the Joker climbing into a body bag. Test audiences haven't been responding well to that scene, which will probably get cut.

IESB has some red carpet coverage from the Prom Night premiere.
