New to Theatres This Weekend: Battleship, The Dictator, What to Expect When You’re Expecting

There are three major films competing for your attention this weekend (yes, one of which is based on a board game) and a decent slate of smaller releases as well. Battleship will attempt to sink The Avengers and Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator will simply try to overcome its poor marketing campaign while What to Expect When You’re Expecting is likely to attract a strong female turnout. Elsewhere, Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary Mansome hits select theatres, along with Panos Cosmatos’ trippy Beyond the Black Rainbow, and Dustin Lance Black’s Virginia. There’s also Lovely Molly, a new horror flick from the director of The Blair Witch Project, and Hysteria, a Victorian era comedy about the invention of the vibrator starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. What will you be watching this weekend?

    Hey Sean,
    If you review Battleship next week (though it is terrible by all accounts) you should end the podcast with Thunderchild from Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. Some good Battleship on alien action, and so moving. Come on Thunderchild!
