New to Theatres This Weekend: The Avengers, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Mother’s Day

The summer movie season has finally arrived, swooping in to save us from an extremely dull April, and I don’t think there could be a better movie to kick things off. The Avengers is already a mega-hit overseas and there is probably a good chance that it will break some records in North America, but the bottom line is that no one in their right mind would release another studio movie on the same weekend. There are just a handful of indie releases in select theatres including The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel starring Judi Dench and Bill Nighy, A Little Bit of Heaven starring Kate Hudson and Gael García Bernal, and LOL starring Miley Cyrus. There are also a couple of genre flicks to choose with Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day remake and Meeting Evil starring Luke Wilson and Samuel L. Jackson. So how many times will you be watching The Avengers this weekend?
