"Alice in Wonderland" made a billion dollars from a March release last year, and 2011 so far has already seen "The Green Hornet," a film that once upon a time would have been seen as summer fare, open in the reputed wilderness of January, something that would have been unheard of only a few years ago.

    Some films are inextricably tied to their soundtracks. It's hard to think of, say, "The Graduate," without Simon & Garfunkel coming to mind, or "Harold & Maude" without Cat Stevens. Fan-favorite directors from Quentin Tarantino to Wes Anderson are known as much for their skills at compiling mixtapes...
