In Cinema's This Weekend: Board game turned multi million dollar Hollywood blockbuster

This weekend sees another weekend with a small number of films released, however with the two that are released we have two that have been highly anticipated. One is based upon a classic board game that was pitched with the tagline 'Transformers on water', and the other is a comedy horror produced by Avenger's Assemble director Joss Whedon, that spends 90 minutes poking fun at the things he hates about recent horror movies. Two that could really get the box office going. Take a look below.

1. First up is BATTLESHIP, based on the board game. It stars Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch and Rhianna fighting at sea against a robot-like alien race. It also holds a role for Liam Neeson which can only be a good thing and is CGI infested. Expect to see lots of explosions and hear many cheesy puns. Also starring: Brooklyn Decker. Want to sink a battleship?

2. Second and finally is the horror/comedy THE CABIN IN THE WOODS. Here we see five teenage kids head out to a cabin in the woods for a long weekend. Along the way they meet crazy gas station owner and receive warnings towards their destination. Once they arrive they swim in the lake, sleep together, hear noises, investigate into dark basements and basically leave each other to save themselves from what appears to be a psychopathic killer. Sound familiar? You have no idea! This film takes all of that and spins it right on its head. Predictable this will not be. Starring: Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Chris Hemsworth & Kristen Connolly. Fancy a scary twist?

There are your two releases of the week. Will you fight at sea or unravel the mystery of the cabin? Either way I think you will be thoroughly entertained.
