This is the time of the year when the studios pull out their big guns for what's sure to be another epic summer movie season.
And it looks like there could be a few moneymakers this weekend, with the hilarious 'Bridesmaids' (from the producers of 'Knocked Up' and 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin') and the big screen adaptation of 'Priest' opening in theaters.

As expected, 'Thor' enjoyed a solid performance at the weekend box office.
The superhero flick, which impressed most critics with its action-packed storyline and breakout performance by star Chris Hemsworth, took in an impressive $66 million, leaving the rest of the competition in the dust. Globally, the film has already grossed $242 million, according to Variety.
Three new movies are opening nationwide this weekend.
One has the makings of a mega-blockbuster in 'Thor,' the latest in a long line of superhero movies from Marvel. Interestingly enough, this one is from critically acclaimed and Oscar-nominated director Kenneth Branagh, the man behind such Shakespeare adaptations as 'Henry V.'
I'm starting to think of Justin Timberlake as more of an actor than a singer/performer these days. I wouldn't mind hearing new music from Justin, and you never know, maybe we will but looks like the big screen is where he wants to be. If he lands this new role, it could be interesting.
