All your felt, fur and feathered friends are back in this story about a couple, Mary (Amy Adams) and Gary (Segel) - joined by Gary's Muppet brother Walter - who are working together to help bring the Muppets back to the mainstream, despite the machinations of evil, rapping Tex Richman (Chris Cooper).

Rabbit season

Hey, it's that animated bunny film you forgot about, just in time for Easter. Starring James Marsden, and featuring the voice talent of Russell Brand. (Available Friday, DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $39.98)

Dragon season

'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'
Director David Finch tackles the popular mystery novel by Stieg Larsson that everyone has read - except for me. Rooney Mara ("The Social Network") plays the title role, aka Lisbeth Salander, and garnered an Oscar nomination for her work. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $40.99)

Smiley smile

'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'
Gary Oldman adroitly takes on the role of British spy George Smiley in this Oscar-nominated adaptation of John le Carré's novel. Smiley is a retired agent brought back into the field to smoke out a high-ranking mole in the agency. (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray, $34.98)

Big-screen play

If you couldn't see it on Broadway (where it was called "God of Carnage"), director Roman Polanski brings this darkly comic drama to the big screen. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99)

Over the hill

'The Sitter'
This baby-sitter comedy pits Jonah Hill against a bunch of kids, but sadly it will likely be remembered as the last movie Hill did before his dramatic weight loss. (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.99)
