10 Reasons to go to the movies this weekend

Check out Jake Gyllenhaal traveling through time in ‘Source Code’ this weekend.

1 ‘Source Code’ A soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a commuter train. If we woke up in Gyllenhaal’s body, forget finding a terrorist — we’d just spend our days feeling our abs.

2 ‘Hop’ What if the Easter Bunny had a teenage son? Said son, in typical mythical cartoon teen bunny fashion, leaves the family business to go to Hollywood.

3 ‘Insidious’ In the great horror film tradition of creepy kids freaking us out comes this scare-fest about a young boy whose comatose body attracts evil spirits.

4 ‘Sucker Punch’ Ladies, surrender your boy­friends, husbands and roommates: Young, pretty ladies wield automatic weapons in this IMAX extravaganza.

5 ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules’ The second installment of this adaptation of the popular children’s book series is sure to please the under-10 set.

6 ‘Limitless’ Bradley Cooper plays a stalled writer who climbs to corporate success with a little chemical assistance.

7 ‘Paul’ Simon Pegg and Nick Frost co-star in another geek­athon about two friends who stumble on an alien named Paul on the run from the government.

8 ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Matthew McConaughey is a smart-aleck lawyer who takes on a dodgy client, played by Ryan Phillippe, and gets more than he bargained for.

9 ‘Battle: Los Angeles’ The movie posters for this film might have you thinking this is “District 9” meets, well, L.A. But with Aaron Eckhart leading the charge, perhaps there’s something more to this war against the aliens.

10 ‘Jane Eyre’ Of the numerous film and TV versions of this Charlotte Bronte classic that are out there, trust us, this one is worth seeing. “Alice in Wonderland”’s Mia Wasikowska stars as the title character opposite Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester.
