3 Great Weekend Box Office Movies.

Do you have anything planned for the weekend? Here are three recently released movies you might want to check out for this Friday and the weekend.

1. Oblivion:
Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Thriller. Time: 2 Hours 04 Mins.
The film's delightful sense of apartness in the early going and the industrious way that Vika, especially, approaches her task of administering to the final business of Earth are things that can't last, especially not after Jack brings home the one survivor of a mysterious crash of a spaceship carrying several hibernating humans. Once she wakes up and recovers, Julia (Olga Kurylenko) throws a monkey wrench into life in the loft, not only because she is so beautiful (Riseborough's alarmed reactions to her are indelibly registered) but because she is an arrival from the past, when she was Jack's wife.

2: 42
Biography, Drama, Sports. Time: 2 Hours 08 Minutes
The key scene in 42, just as it was in the low-budget 1950 The Jackie Robinson Story, which starred the ballplayer himself, comes when Rickey, warning his prospect about the abuse that inevitably awaits him,
demands to know if he's “got enough guts not to fight back” when provoked by other players or fans. Robinson was not the best player in the Negro Leagues, but he was reckoned to be the one who might best withstand the trial by fire posed by teammates who didn't want to play with him and a society that often wouldn't allow him to travel, eat or lodge with the rest of the team.

3. Stand by Love (Amour & Turbulences).
Stand by Love offers yet another take on the classic comedy of remarriage, with the added twist that much of the story is set onboard a flight from New York to Paris. (And, of course, in first class. “Who wants to be stuck with two losers in coach?” the filmmakers seem to be saying.)
It’s just before takeoff that hotshot skirt-chasing lawyer, Antoine (Bedos), and hotheaded artist, Julie (Sagnier), find themselves sitting side by side, which is pretty inconvenient considering they went through a nasty breakup three years prior. For the rest of the movie, the action shifts between the seven-hour voyage, with its many bouts of anger and turbulence (thus the rather unsubtle French title), and flashbacks revealing how the two lovebirds met, fell in love, and eventually fell out of step.
