10 Reasons to go to the movies this weekend

Word on the street is that <font size="4"><font size="3">‘Scream 4’ may be even better than its predecessors.&nbsp;</font></font>

1 ‘Scream 4’ Could Wes Craven pull off a successful sequel/reboot of the ’90s slasher flicks that permanently stigmatized the ghost-face mask? Word on the street is that the new film is scarier than all its predecessors.

Animals from a sheltered world venture out to a strange new place (swap in Rio de Janeiro for “Madagascar”’s well ... Madagascar). Animated movie-plot machine has spoken. If you regurgitate it, they will come.

3 ‘Arthur’ In the update, Russell Brand is Arthur, an irresponsible playboy who must decide between his millions and true love.

4 ‘Your Highness’ Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman star in this “epic comedy adventure set in a fantastical world.” Enjoying that Oscar, Natalie?

5 ‘Hanna’ Saoirse Ronan portrays Hanna, a 14-year-old who is also the perfect assassin.

6 ‘Soul Surfer’ The movie adaptation of the true story of a teen surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack.

7 ‘Born to Be Wild 3D’ Adorable baby monkeys in 3-D? Yes, please.

8 ‘Source Code’ In this thriller, a soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find a bomber of a Chicago train.

9 ‘Hop’ What if the Easter Bunny had a teenage son? That’s the premise of “Hop,” where said son, in typical mythical cartoon bunny teen fashion, leaves the family business to go to Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer.

10 ‘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.
