In Cinemas This Weekend: It's time for the Avenger's Initiative.

There are 3 new films released into cinemas this weekend but let's be honest here, there is only one film on everybody's mind. That's right it is time for our ensemble of superheroes to defend the world. Other films released this week I'm sure will have a tough time at the box office due to this, but then again six superheroes fighting a super villain with a space army is not everyone's cup of tea. Have a look at the films below.

1. It is the biggest release of the week, and a highly anticipated super hero action flick. AVENGER'S ASSEMBLE brings back the superheroes who have had their own movie; Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hulk, teams them up with two others; Black Widow and Nighthawk, in order to defend the world from annihilation by Thor's brother Loki. The initial worry of too many heroes fighting for screen time have been dashed and the film has received nothing but positive reviews so far. Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson & Jeremy Renner. Have you been waiting for this?

2. Attempting to fight against the above film is ALBERT NOBBS. Starring Glenn Close, this film follows her posing as a man in the 19th century, where women were not allowed to be independent. When she meets a handsome painter however she must find a way of revealing that she is putting on a front in order to gain some much needed acknowledgement. Also starring: Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson & Antonia Campbell-Hughes. A serious reverse on Mrs Doubtfire?

3. Finally is the story of a trio of girls set to change a male dominated college campus in DAMSELS IN DISTRESS. The trio attempt to rescue the students from falling into depression, grunge and low standards. Starring: Greta Gerwig, Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton & Megalyn Echikunwoke. Want to see male dominance crumble?

Seems rather ironic that two films based around women trying to overthrow men are released the same weekend as the male dominated film Avenger's Assemble. Coincidence? Regardless I'm sure there is only one film on each persons lips this weekend. I'm sure I will be seeing it so come back Monday and read my review of it.
