Vanity Fair Hollywood issue arrives in time for Oscar [video]

This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom.

 Just as April showers bring May flowers, the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue means that Oscar is right around the corner — and the magazine has once again recruited the biggest stars in film to ring in the awards.

Who will you see on the magazine rack? Academy Awards show hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco are featured in the first part of a multi-panel cover, with Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds joining them.

Anthony Mackie finds himself in a Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Wilde sandwich as the talented bunch put their best faces forward along a clubhouse bar in a shot styled with old-school showbiz glamour. Jesse Eisenberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt get Mila Kunis as some sexy topping in a little black number, while Robert Duvall surfaces behind the bar.

New "Spider-Man" Andrew Garfield perches by Rashida Jones (who is, naturally, feeding a lion cub with a bottle), along with "Country Strong" and "Tron: Legacy" stud Garrett Hedlund and the original "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," Noomi Rapace

Check out a clip of the shoot below, and tell us your thoughts on the Hollywood issue in comments.

For the record, 2:51 p.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified Jennifer Lawrence as Dianna Agron.
