It's Wednesday, which means we're super-excited to bring you our picks for the hottest movies, music and literature of the week.

The century-spanning film "Cloud Atlas" is coming to theaters this Friday, and it's bringing along plenty of star power. Based on the 2004 novel of the same name, this science fiction/mystery/drama features Tom Hanks and Halle Berry leading an ensemble cast that includes Hugh Grant, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving and Jim Broadbent. It's sure to be the can't-miss movie of the season.

John Grisham fans can start rejoicing, because his latest legal thriller is now available. "The Racketeer" — which deals with the untimely murder of a federal judge — sounds like it's going to have us on the edge of our seats.

And finally, Lisa Marie Presley recently added her vocals to her father's 1954 version of "I Love You Because" in honor of the 35th anniversary of his death, and the song's new music video is even more touching. Available this week on iTunes, the video contains footage and never-before-seen photos of Elvis with his family.

Catch the video above for clips and photos from of our favorite entertainment picks of the week, and come back next Wednesday to find out what's new to be excited about.
