Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are curious about your New Year's Eve plans.
The two actors perform a duet in a video posted this week on YouTube, musically asking, "What are you doing New Year's Eve?"
She plays ukulele and he plays guitar in the two-minute video of the 1947 jazz song.
Deschanel calls her (500) Days of Summer co-star "simply the best" in a note accompanying the video.
The two actors don't reveal their New Year's Eve plans in the clip, but they will be celebrating together in 2012. Both are nominated for Golden Globe Awards: she for actress in a TV comedy for "New Girl," and he for his lead role in the film 50/50.
Kick off your new year right and watch the duet after the jump!
So far we've run through the top movies, interviews, blockbusters, trailer, posters and breakthrough stars of 2011. But what of all the other note-worthy big-screen moments? Surely we have to address those somewhere, right? Well you've come to the right place. This handy-dandy list of randomness is our look at what we like to call 'the best of the rest': a somewhat tongue-in-cheek tribute to the other highs, lows and everything in between.
From scene-stealers to soundtracks to strategic f-bomb usages, we've covering a wide gamut of creative subjects to wrap up our look back of the best of the year. Take a look at the stand-outs below then be sure to comment and let us know which moments stood out for you on-screen in 2011!
It should be noted that we started with a bulging list of 74 titles, whittled that down to 40 and compromised, in the end, with 30. In other words, there are A LOT of movies hitting theatres in 2012 and it can get overwhelming to figure out which ones deserve your hard-earned cash - that's why we're here.
Our 2012 Movie Preview outlines which movies are coming out when, who stars in what, why you'll want to see them...and how much longer you have to wait to see the final Twilight movie.
Expect plenty of remakes, a few sequels, a decent number of three-quels, re-imagined fairytales (Hansel & Gretel, Jack the Giant Killer, etc.), more Bond, a dark knight, a hobbit, new Tarantino and one amazing Spider-Man.

Tom Cruise's new mission remains impossible to beat at the box office.
Studio estimates Sunday placed Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol in the number one spot for the second-straight weekend with $31.3 million. With a $134.1 million domestic total, it's the first $100 million hit with Cruise in the lead role since 2006's Mission: Impossible III.
The Paramount release led a solid New Year's weekend as Hollywood managed fair business to end a sluggish year on a more promising note for 2012. Domestic revenues closed out at $10.22 billion for 2011, down 3.4 per cent from 2010's, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com.
That was a slight improvement over Hollywood.com's projections a week earlier, when Hollywood was limping through the normally busy holiday season with a lineup of underachieving movies.
"This week was a pleasant surprise," said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. "Last week, we were really pretty gloom and doom, but this final push at the end of the year was stronger than expected. It's a good way to head into 2012, with at least a little bit of momentum at the box office."
Daniel Radcliffe looks scared.
Breathing deeply through his nose in laboured bouts, the camera records his frightened reaction as his saucer-round blue eyes go wide at the sight of something terrifying on the other side of the lens that's enough to make him dash out of the room.
After fighting so many formidable creatures in his 10-year-long adventure as Harry Potter, what could possibly have the world-famous boy wizard shaking in his Brogues?
That would be the woman in black, the haunting specter at the centre of his first post-Potter movie, a 19th century gothic thriller in which he plays Arthur Kipps, a 24-year-old lawyer and father, representing a leap forward after a decade as Hogwarts' most famous student. Though Radcliffe is eager to show he's got range, he's careful not to give the impression that Harry Potter has been anything but the role of a lifetime.
Talk about starting off 2012 right. Thanks to Warner Bros., we've got a handful of new-to-us photos from the HUGELY anticipated The Dark Knight Rises, opening July 20. Though technically released around Christmas, we didn't get a peek of the photos until now - we blame the tryptophan.
These fresh photos offer solo shots of Bane (Tom Hardy) properly jacked with arms jutting out at his sides like two tree stumps, Batman (Christian Bale) armed with some sort of giant taser gun and a shot of our well-respected visionary Christopher Nolan overseeing an IMAX camera, perhaps as a way to remind us that, yes, The Dark Knight Rises will make use of the larger-than-life dimensions.
What we're saying is, it's Dark Knight and it's cool and we've got 'em for you right now!

With a face as distinctive as hers, you'd think it would be difficult for Meryl Streep to disappear into such different characters. Somehow, that's not the case. We're guessing it's because she's such a great actress, some would say the best of her generation.
She has, after all, won two Oscars (Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie's Choice) and been nominated for 14 more. (Of course, the films' great wardrobe and makeup teams deserve some of the credit as well.) So, as her Margaret Thatcher bio-pic The Iron Lady makes its way into theatres, we present our five favourite incarnations of the chameleon known as La Streep.
