In Cinemas This Weekend: One man sent to save the President's daughter from a prison in space.

There are 4 mainstream films released this weekend. Slowly more films are being released after the last month has seen a small number hit our screens. Seems like we may be building up to the turn of the summer releases which will all kick off next week, but for those of you who don't know what it is will have to wait till next week. For this week we see Guy Pearce before he shows us Prometheus and Amanda Seyfried running through town. Have a look below and see what suits your fancy.

1. First up is the new Guy Pearce film called LOCKOUT. He plays a rogue former CIA Agent called Snow, who is sent onto an advanced security prison which is in orbit around the Earth, in order to save the President's daughter, played by Maggie Grace. This B-movie looking sci-fi flick looks a lot of fun but expect the typical cheesy punchlines and surreal one man vs many scenario. Regardless of that Guy Pearce is a King and i'm sure he makes this film rock. Also starring: Peter Stormare & Vincent Regan. A battle in space?

2.The writer of Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours has written a new film. It stars Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt and is called SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN. I'm sure the title may put people off but if the writer's credits have anything to go by I'm sure things will work out well. The film is about a fisheries expert being approached to bring a Sheik's vision to reality; bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the dry desert. It already sounds comedic. Also starring: Amr Waked & Kristin Scott Thomas. A spot of fishing?

3. Amanda Seyfried's new film is next up, and like I said she runs around her home town a lot in GONE. The reason she is running a lot is due to her sister being kidnapped by the same man that kidnapped her and left her for dead years before. Unfortunately the police refuse to believe any of this and she sets out alone to solve the mystery. Also starring: Jennifer Carpenter, Wes Bentley & Daniel Sunjata. Who has her sister?

4. Finally we have feature length documentary MARLEY. No it doesn't document the dog from Marley And Me but the reggae master himself, Bob Marley. Take a look at how it all started, the impact of his music, and the legacy he has left behind. Also starring: Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff & Lee Perry. Want to see what he was smoking?

They are your 4 for the week then. I'm not sure if Marley will be playing in all cinemas but felt it needed a mention as the man is a hero. Go out and see one of these films and prepare yourself for next week's huge release of........ Ahhh I'm not telling you yet.
