In Cinemas This Weekend: A new breed of super agent.

Finally we find ourselves at a weekend with a variety of films being released in the cinemas. We have moved on from the odd one or two that have been released over the past three weeks and this week we find ourselves with six releases, that's right SIX, and I tell you what I think I'd see them all each for different reasons. Have a look at the large selection below and decide which avenue you will take this weekend.

1. The first release of the week is a Bourne film without Bourne. In THE BOURNE LEGACY we are given Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross who is another agent in a parallel timeline to Jason Bourne, showing us that Jason Bourne was not the only super agent! Also starring: Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, & Scott Glenn. Is Cross tougher than Bourne?

2. Pixar's next major film is also released this weekend and we find ourselves being taken to the Scottish mountains for BRAVE. Kelly Macdonald voices Princess Merida who decides to defy her hierarchy and live life the way she wants to. Of course however a curse is cast upon her and she must fight to rid it and live her own life. Also starring: Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, & Julie Walters. Can Pixar do it again?

3. Sylvester Stallone's action, macho man ensemble are back once again in THE EXPENDABLES 2, with this time his team having to face villain Jean Claude Van Damme who plans on holding the world to ransom using plutonium. With Arnie and Bruce on board can Sly and his team save the day? Also starring: Liam Hemsworth & Randy Couture. Will there be enough fighting?

4. Dim-witted comedy THE THREE STOOGES is up next. Moe, Larry and Curly must raise enough money to save their childhood orphanage but accidentally find themselves intertwined in a murder plot and a reality TV show. Expect a seriously slapstick comedy. Starring: Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos, Will Sasso, & Jane Lynch. Tickle that funny bone?

5. Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen star in TAKE THIS WALTZ which is about a married woman who falls for the artist who lives across the street. Expect some humour from Rogen and some drama from Williams. Also starring: Sarah Silverman & Aaron Abrams. Something a little more subtle?

6. Up finally from the director of Calendar Girls is THE WEDDING VIDEO starring Robert Webb as the groom to be married and Rufus Hound as the best man filming everything that leads up to the wedding and the day itself. With these two involved expect to laugh a lot. Also starring: Lucy Punch & Miriam Margoyles. The build up to the big day?

A large variety to choose from this weekend then, plenty for everyone I have to say. Leaves me in a slight dilemma of what to see but unfortunately I won't be going to see any of them until next week so you will have to come back for a catch up review in a double bill in a few weeks. Enjoy your choice.
