How will you spend your Easter weekend? The arrival of spring brings with it plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like Easter egg hunts and hikes. But the great outdoors isn’t for everybody. If your idea of a good time involves watching a good movie with good company, then there are a lot of options for you this holiday weekend.
This year Easter falls on Sunday, March 27. Although it’s too early for summer blockbusters, some big releases will be in theaters for your viewing pleasure. Check out the list of family-friendly flicks below:
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (PG-13)
The theaters will surely be packed this weekend for the latest superhero flick, which arrives Friday. Go with caution as your family may be divided between Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) in DC’s exciting new release.
“Miracles From Heaven” (PG)
This incredible trust story is one to watch this Easter weekend. “Miracles From Heaven” tells the tale of a freak accident that changed the life of 10-year-old Anna Beam (Kylie Rogers). The movie was released on March 16.
“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” (PG-13)
It’s been 14 years since the release of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” but the Portokalos family returns to the big screen this Friday for the sequel. Bring your family to the movies to share the laughs as a Potokalos secret is revealed.
“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” (PG-13)
If you didn’t have time to catch the final installment in “The Divergent Series” when it was released last week, then now is your chance. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) must work together to save the people they love.
This Disney movie might not feature the Easter Bunny, but it still has other cotton-tailed characters. If you didn’t catch this animated tale when it was released on March 4, then swing into theaters to embark on a journey with Bonnie Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). Check your local theater for listings and if the flick is available in 3D.
