Thinking of hitting the cinemas this weekend? Here are the top five movies to look out for:

Rio 2
The entire cast of the animated smash Rio returns in Rio 2, and they are joined by a new flock of top actors and musical talents.
Rich with grandeur, character, colour and music, Rio 2 finds Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and their three kids leaving their domesticated life in that magical city for a journey to the Amazon. They encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild, voiced by Andy Garcia, Rita Moreno, Bruno Mars, and Kristin Chenoweth.

As he returns to 'Bhoot World', Bhoothnath (played by Amitabh Bachchan) is greeted with taunts and condemnation from other ghosts for bringing disrepute to the ghost-community for getting bullied by a kid on Earth. Post the humiliation, Bhoothnath decides to redeem himself and come back to scare a bunch of kids. Bhoothnath's search for kids brings him to Akhrot, a slum kid who is also the only person who can see him.
