The Must List

The Must List: What's Hot for the Week of March 29, 2009

''Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,'' ''Slumdog Millionaire'' and ''Wonder Woman'' on DVD, and 12 other pop culture gems you and the EW staff love this week

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies | PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES

BOOKS & DVD
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES, by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE on Blu-ray
On April 8, feast on Grahame-Smith's marriage of Austen and the undead. Then on April 14, watch Mr. Darcy's lake dive in the glorious resolution it deserves. Which reminds us: You know what else looks great in HD? Zombies!

MUSIC
''LOVE SEX MAGIC,'' Ciara and Justin Timberlake
Is it June? 'Cause Ciara (and the seemingly infallible J.T.) hits it with a bouncy, finger-popping, straight-up summer jam — even if some folks still have snow on the ground.

DVD
SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE on DVD
Hot off its Oscar glory (eight wins, including Best Picture), director Danny Boyle's hit rushes to DVD with deleted scenes, a making-of, and some of the happiest commentary tracks we've ever heard.

TV
DAMAGES finale on FX
Will Patty get the polluters? Did Ellen really shoot Patty? And what about Ellen's fiancé's killer? Answers! We need answers!

DVD
TELL NO ONE on DVD
Our evil plan is to push DVDs of great movies we know you didn't see in theaters, like a certain thriller with Kristin Scott Thomas.

MOVIES
SETH ROGEN in Monsters vs. Aliens
As the voice behind the hilarious, one-eyed blob B.O.B., the actor stands out among an all-star cast. Rogen's slobby good cheer is so charming, you can even recognize it behind all that blue goo.

TV
GREEK on ABC Family
There've been changes in the months since we left bright, sunny Cyprus Rhodes. Rumor has it one of the Zeta Betas is out, Jesse McCartney is in (as a new cast member), and Casey finally decides if it's gonna be love or money.

BOOKS
THE ANNOTATED WIND IN THE WILLOWS, by Kenneth Grahame, edited by Annie Gauger
Mr. Toad, Mole, and Badger are even more vivid with the details Gauger adds to the century-old classic, including juicy info on the author.

DIGITAL
AZIZ ANSARI on Twitter
Comedian Ansari (Scrubs) turns tweets into absurdist art, like when he pretends he's on The Wire. Sample: 'Yo @ Snoop — hey I'm working on a woodworking project, can I borrow your nail gun tomorrow?'

READER'S CHOICE: DVD
WONDER WOMAN
We don't need the Lasso of Truth to know that this two-disc origins flick is worthy of an Amazon princess. Keri Russell voices Diana; Nathan Fillion takes on Steve Trevor. Two featurettes, commentary, and a cool cover make it all so — gotta say it — wonderful. —Submitted by Snarf

READER'S CHOICE: TV
KRIS ALLEN on American Idol
He reminded us that this is, in fact, a singing competition. —heckyeahfool

READER'S CHOICE: MUSIC
MR. LUCKY, Chris Isaak
So nice to finally have some great new material from one of the best live acts around. I would like to be Mrs. Lucky, but I don't think that's appropriate for the Must List. —Broadway Baby

READER'S CHOICE: TV
CASTLE on ABC
Awesome show...hilarious —Heather

READER'S CHOICE: DVD
TWILIGHT on DVD
I love an angsty vampire. —Raven_Moon

READER'S CHOICE: TV
KINGS on NBC
The show was a little slow getting started, but it proved to be worth the watch. Can't wait to see what the rest of the season has in store! —Maggie
