Meanwhile, alt-rock darlings the Black Keys deliver their bluesy-rock blast on the music stage. The guitar-drum duo released the CD Brothers in 2010. — Dean Maurer

NBC's wild-card doubleheader kicks off with Drew Brees and the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints visiting the NFC West-winning Seattle Seahawks, who get home-field advantage despite being the first team to make the NFL playoffs with a losing record. Then in prime time, the Indianapolis Colts host the New York Jets in a rematch of last year's AFC Championship game. The Colts will attempt to shut down the Jets' running attack and put the game in the hands of QB Mark Sanchez, while the Jets do not particularly want the ball in the hands of Peyton Manning. — Dave Roeder

The timelessness of Greek mythology meets the marvels of 21st-century technology in this update of the 1981 fantasy known for its stop-motion animation. In the 2010 version, the tale of Perseus (Sam Worthington) comes with all the modern-day bells and whistles director Louis Leterrier can summon as the heroic demigod battles all manner of terrifying creatures, including Medusa and the monstrous Kraken, in a war of Olympian proportions. The PG-13 rated film also stars Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. — Joe Friedrich
